INN FAQ Part 2

NOTE: The maintainers of the INN FAQ stopped publishing in December 1997.
An important update to this topic is provided by Mib Software in the Usenet RKT for Subscribers.

Subject: (2.12) Systems where only root can have "cron" jobs.

Your cron jobs may not work if you use:

        su news -c /usr/lib/news/bin/news.daily delayrm expireover

Instead, you must put the entire command in quotes. Like this:

        su news -c "/usr/lib/news/bin/news.daily delayrm expireover"

Look for "Pyramid" later in this FAQ for the interesting details.
