I thought warranty was only 30 days, am I wrong?

I made a mistake, "sudo crontab -u heryro -e" does work. Problem turned out to be the command I added in crontab.

Code:
heryro@debian:/$ ls -ld /var/spool/cron /var/spool/crontabs
ls: cannot access /var/spool/crontabs: No such file or directory
drwxr-xr-x 3 root root 4096 Nov 16  2008 /var/spool/cron

When I use "sudo crontab -u heryro -e" another entry appears in /var/spool/cron/. But after a reboot it dissapears like you said. Would the alpha 6 be an easy fix?

I tried this "chgrp crontab /usr/bin/crontab; chmod g+s /usr/bin/crontab" and now have this:

Code:
-rwxr-sr-x 1 root crontab 27496 Nov 16  2008 /usr/bin/crontab

But the same error remains. Should I install the alpha 6 ?

Added the user to the groups "crontab" and "adm", unfortunately the same error keeps coming up.

Hi, I want to use crontab from a user that isn't root. But it doesn't work:

Quote
heryro@debian:/etc/cron.d$ crontab -e
/var/spool/cron/crontabs/heryro: Permission denied

So I created a /etc/cron.allow and added my username in the first line. Unfortunately this didn't work.
How do I give a non-root-user cron?

That looks REALLY nice, however I fell at the first hurdle...

What commands did you type?

Hi, has anyone here have experience in installing wTorrent on Ubuntu Jaunty Jackalope? My SheevaPlug is using the pre-installed Ubuntu 9.04.
The best tutorial I could find so far is this one: http://www.wtorrent-project.org/trac/wiki/DebianInstall. Would it be a good tutorial or is it perhaps outdated/incomplete?


Edit: Someone recommended a better tutorial at http://blog.vintaku.com/2009/01/11/how-to-install-rtorrent-and-wtorrent-on-ubuntu-804/
9  Linux Stuff / General Linux questions / Re: How to backup an SD-card that contains a Root File System? on: August 09, 2009, 10:23:31 AM
Thank you for your reply, it works great!

If I want to restore the original configuration, can I just format the card while it's active as the file system and then run
tar -xvpfz /media/usbdrive/rootfs_backup.tar -C /

Or are additional steps required?
10  Linux Stuff / General Linux questions / How to backup an SD-card that contains a Root File System? on: August 09, 2009, 04:15:02 AM
Just followed the HowTo "SD Card As Root File System" on the Wiki.
Does anyone know how to make a backup of the sd-card?

P.S. The SD-card doesn't automatically mount on my Ubuntu-PC with Nautilus.
Other SD-cards are usually automatically mounted.

Thank you for your reply. Unfortunately I can't test it anymore. I just formatted the sd-card and started over again.
12  Linux Stuff / General Linux questions / Samba uninstall problem on: August 08, 2009, 12:36:21 PM
Hi, I installed Samba, but messed up the configuration file. So I figured reinstalling would solve the problem.
But when I removed samba with "apt-get --purge remove samba" the configuration files were still there.

How can I fully remove all of samba?


P.S. "rm /etc/samba/smb.conf" from root doesn't work either.
