2007/4/20, Tom Poe <tompoe@xxxxxxxx>:
I googled for cron howto, and noticed that the /etc/crontab file is
empty.  I want to run an event on a daily basis, and need to know where
to add, and how to add an event to run jpodcatcher once a day.  Any help

First off, if you want it to run in the system cron, just
/etc/crontab, on the other hand if you want it as an user cron, just:
crontab -e
Anyways, this is an example of a basic job running daily at, for
instance, 11:00 AM


# run-parts
01 * * * * root run-parts /etc/cron.hourly
02 4 * * * root run-parts /etc/cron.daily
22 4 * * 0 root run-parts /etc/cron.weekly
42 4 1 * * root run-parts /etc/cron.monthly
00 11 * * * root /home/manu/

got it?

You might want to read the Crontab manual.

Hope this helps
All the best.
