    Hi,

    I have an OpenSuse 10.2 server with a 10 minute cronjob that only runs every hour.

    the fetchmail command should run every 10 minutes, as below:

    root@ser001:[~]$ crontab -l
    10 * * * * /etc/webmin/fetchmail/check.pl --null
    0 8 * * * /usr/sbin/ntpdate -u ntp.time.za.net


    The sustem is:
    root@ser001:[~]$ uname -a
    Linux ser001 2.6.18.8-0.13-default #1 SMP Thu Nov 6 13:35:13 UTC 2008 i686 i686 i386 GNU/Linux
    root@ser001:[~]$ cat /etc/SuSE-release
    openSUSE 10.2 (i586)
    VERSION = 10.2




    Does anyone know why this happens, or how to fix it?

    How exactly did you create the cron job? By running
    Code:
    crontab -e
    or using another method?
