Hi all,

Just wondering if anyone has had success using the cron package from squidgit's ipkg repository.. I think it is in the experimental area. I didn't see a "crond" installed, but there is a "cron" executable that doesnt seem to take any switches when run.

Also, how can I change the default editor in crontab? I don't have /usr/bin/editor that it is looking for..

Thanks!

istr it was in experimental 'coz I hadn't got around to packing crond and a script to start it, sry.

That said, the whole repo is flaky; you have to be running the same library versions as they were linked against. I best put a warning on that page and when I get a spare millisecond I'll have to build everything against some fixed library and package that up too.
