That's kind of the direction I was thinking, but this is my first foray into Arch and cronie both, so I'm not 100% sure where all I should be looking for cron tasks.
I have not added any jobs to cron, and according to crontab both root and the user I set up and log in as have no crontab files. If I understand what I've read on cronie I also need to check the cron.* directories under etc, and in those I have:
Which to my limited understanding, leaves me with nothing that should be firing every minute.
Now, having said that, on a lark I checked the contents of cron.d/0hourly and it contains
Code: Select all
01 * * * * root run-parts /etc/cron.hourly
, which runs every minute, correct? But surely this can't be the issue can it?
The one other thing that I have thought may have some bearing on it is that the date is reset every time I power it up since it has not internet connection to re-set the date/time. Could cron be having an issue with the date/time being set back to default some of the time, and June 2013 the rare occasions where it does have internet?
