hi to everyone, I have been using my freebsd system for almost 7-8 months.
I have read in my internal help documents about newbies that I should run #periodic monthly #periodic weekly #periodic daily from time to time...I still have not really grasp the importance of it but I have developed the habbit of running these commands from time to time...I think cron does run these commands for me too...but since I turn-off my laptop after work, i use to run these commands on my free time. But, for the past few weeks, I have forgotten about these commands... Yesterday, I wanted to run these commands but I encountered some problems: future# periodic monthly future# collect: Cannot write ./dfi4Q1lWFh000774 (bfcommit, uid=25, gid=25): Permission denied queueup: cannot create queue file ./qfi4Q1lWFh000774, euid=25: Permission denied future# periodic weekly future# collect: Cannot write ./dfi4Q1rFUu000854 (bfcommit, uid=25, gid=25): Permission denied queueup: cannot create queue file ./qfi4Q1rFUu000854, euid=25: Permission denied future# periodic daily future# collect: Cannot write ./dfi4Q1xS9A001139 (bfcommit, uid=25, gid=25): Permission denied queueup: cannot create queue file ./qfi4Q1xS9A001139, euid=25: Permission denied I can only say that a week fews ago, I still can no longer remember why...but I did a very not so good thing to my system...I did a #rm -rf * on my /var/log directory. After that, since i do not want to bother the list about my on wrong doing I made a list of the /var/log files on the other pc at my home and created the almost the same files from that list, which i think I have done quite but maybe not successfully. Does the errors above connection to what I did to the /var/log files? What should I do to eliminate these errors and be able to run these commands again? Thank you for any ideas and advices in advance...
