ok, i read a lot about setting paths in your bash profile but that isn't what you mean i think, a daemon is already active without a user logged in?
but when i look at my script i specify the path to gammu in the second line : that should be enough or am i thinking the wrong way? #!/usr/bin/bash echo "servers down test" | /usr/bin/gammu --sendsms TEXT 12345678 > > > yes, now it works, > > but if i start mon as daemon ,eg /etc/init.d/mon start > it doesn't work.... it's probably your environment. be more explicit with the paths to the programs you call from your alert script by either setting a path at the top of the script or by specifying the full path to each. _______________________________________________ mon mailing list email@example.com http://linux.kernel.org/mailman/listinfo/mon
