I have been trying for a bit to do something like this in cron:

Why don't you try to put the scripts into one single main script and
put that main script into cron, for example.

#!/bin/bash
/path/to/script1
sleep 60s
/path/to/script2

Hope this helps you.


Here's the situation, I have a script1 that I want to run and wait 60
second or so in order to have script2 startup and generate a PID in
/var/run, then have script1 check for the existence of that PID and
alert me if it's not there.  My boss told me of a 'timer' command that
would do this, but I"ve not seen any documentation on it through google
and others.  Is there some way to accomplish this as is or will I need
to tweak my scripts?

I know about the sleep command, but I don't think that would work in
this instance as I don't really want script1 to run immediately.  Does
that make any sense at all?
