Re: Cygwin Cron not running

Thanks for the info, however, I'm a bit confused. In cronbug it states
that the permissions are:
-rwxrwx--- 1 lumcon mkgroup-l-d 244 May 30 14:45 /var/cron/tabs/lumcon
However, when I run a ls -al I get:
-rw-r--r-- 1 lumcon mkgroup-l-d 244 May 30 14:45 /var/cron/tabs/lumcon
How/why are they different? And how can I change the permissions of this
file to get them correct? I'm not familiar with how chmod works in cygwin,
because using the 3 numbers as in unix does not work.
Define "does not work".
Sounds to me like you could have some look-alike versions of your tools
around. What does 'which ls' say? What does 'which chmod' say? Perhaps
you could show us this followed by calling 'chmod'?
