Pogoplug :: adding crond

So need to have crond running of my pogoplug, found a couple of useful links but all expected another part to be done! so here’s the list assuming that your usb drive had mounted at mnt_sda1 most likely if it’s the only drive on there

  1. mount -o remount,rw /
  2. mkdir -p /tmp/.cemnt/mnt_sda1/spool/cron/crontab
  3. ln -s /tmp/.cemnt/mnt_sda1/spool /var/spool
  4. crond
  5. nano /etc/init.d/rcS
  6. add ‘ln -s /tmp/.cemnt/mnt_sda1/spool /var/spool’
  7. add’crond’
  8. close and save
  9. restart pogoplug

Your Pogoplug now has crond running :)
