Hello,
I wanted an alarm every morning so , i thought of cronning it.But it doent work.this is how
my /etc/crontab looks

#!/bin/bash
SHELL=/bin/bash
PATH=/sbin:/bin:/usr/sbin:/usr/bin
MAILTO=root
HOME=/

# run-parts
0 6 * * * /usr/bin/xmms /root/temp/song1.mp3

Then I changed the last line to
0 6 * * * root /usr/bin/xmms /root/temp/song1.mp3

Also I didnt get any mails from cron daemon in my root mailbox..
But whenever my xmms is open...that is xmms is called it works..
So , b4 going to sleep should I have to make sure that xmms is called !!



Thanks for your consideration
