I have been unable to get cron to run scheduled tasks after a fresh flash. I am using extroot, so not sure if that's playing a role, but I was using that before too. Haven't really needed to schedule any tasks until now, but I have been putting pressure on my ISP (BBB complaint) to provide a set minimum bandwidth, so I need to adjust SQM based on time of day now that they are working toward doing the right thing finally.
what I have tried:
I'm testing with this to make things simple. I have tried different formats with spaces removed etc. but no dice.
*/2 * * * * logger "TEST BOO!!"
I also made sure to start cron and add it to start:
/etc/init.d/cron enable /etc/init.d/cron start
Have I made a dumb mistake somewhere? I did everything the same as before as far as I can remember
crond is running, I made sure to check. Also, I am using root user.
