Subject: ***[Possible UCE]*** cron
| I've tried multiple suggestions -- no luck,
| Can you point me in the right direction?
The error messages are
2007/12/12 15:50:03 [bzovich] cron: PID 2748: starting service `cron' failed: fork: 11, Resource
2007/12/12 16:10:24 [SYSTEM] cron: PID 2568: starting service `cron' failed: fork: 11, Resource
Those are messages from cygrunsrv indicating that it can't fork itself,
whether you run it as yourself or as system.
So this may have nothing to do with cron.
cygcheck reports that no Cygwin services exist.
Did you remove the cron service before running cronbug?
Can you run anything with cygrunserv? For example
~: ls -l /var/log/env.log [no such file yet]
ls: cannot access /var/log/env.log: No such file or directory
~: cygrunsrv -I env -p /bin/env
~: cygrunsrv -S env
cygrunsrv: Error starting a service: QueryServiceStatus: Win32 error 1062:
The service has not been started. [this is normal, the service has terminated quickly]
~: ls -l /var/log/env.log [now there is a file :) ]
