I have something struggle with crontab which I can't resolve. I'm trying to schedule a radio program recording on a weekly basis.
If the script is executed manually by me (root privilege), everything works as expected. If I schedule it in crontab it does not work. Nothing in /var/log/cron, no PID, nothing.
# Record stream and save it
streamripper http://x.x.x.x:8000 -d "/var/flexshare/shares/vol4/1. Streamrecordings/" -o larger -t --quiet -u "FreeAmp/2.x" &
# End script
*/30 * * * * /install/script/dyndns.sh
0 16 * * 5 /install/script/recordingstart.sh
0 19 * * 5 /install/script/recordingstop.sh
Other parts of the Crontab are being executed...
