I'm trying to convince upstart on my Pre3 to start a cron instance after each device start, but no success.
As I noticed, on the Pre3 (webOS 2.2.4) there is no crond executable (as it was on previous Pre's), only the config file is there. So I installed the cron package it from optware. I tried to modify the already given config file to make it start the cron from optware, but nothing.
Anybody could help me with some thoughts?
If need any config files, just ask.
Background: I wrote a little shell script that would upload (via SCP) my saverestore folder to one of my servers, but it should be run everyday after save/restore has finished its job. This would be a marvelous job for cron. Now if I start cron from the command line, than it works untilI restart my phone. But after restart I have to remember to start it again, otherways my backups are just resting on my phone.
