RE: problem of cron in cygwin xp, final solution!

2003-10-01 Thread Harig, Mark
Maybe such things should be added to Mark Harig's cron_diagnose.sh? To make the life easier for the other followers: 1. Need to set the mode of cygwin1.dll $ chmod +x /bin/cygwin1.dll This is a more general problem than a problem with cron's many files. A sanity check for cygwin

Igor, Thank you for the help. I tried to follow your instruction, but no luck to get it work. 1. cron_diagnosis.sh does not find any problem. 2. the cygcheck is attached. 3. The only error message I got is: $ cygrunsrv --start cron cygrunsrv: Error starting a service: QueryServiceStatus: Win32

Chunyu, Does the Windows event log contain any clues? Cron from the command line wouldn't start a service -- it'll start the application itself... Which should be enough to ascertain whether your crontab works. The instructions for getting a system-owned shell can easily be found by searching

Chunyu, The main part of the event is cron : PID 3248 : `cron' service stopped., so this is not quite what you're looking for. Are there other events from cron around that time in the event log? Did you look at the system log, or the application one? Google allows you to restrict the search to

Chunyu, Do you Google: http://www.google.com/search?q=%22%60cron%27+failed%3A+execv%3A+1%2C+Operation+not+permitted.%22+cygwin? As for the at problem, you need to escape the backslashes when you're running it from a bash shell. So, either use $ at /interactive 12:19 'c:\cygwin\bin\bash'

Chunyu, Just to close on the at issue. You were getting invalid command because you needed to put the time *before* the /interactive. Another problem was that you needed to add the .exe to bash. So, a command that just worked for me (from bash) was: at 14:51 /interactive
