    Unhappy CRON TABLE ERROR HELP!!

    I have a USB network drive which is about the last device to be loaded when my opensuse starts. I'm trying to mount some network drives, but since it loads at the end, it fails to do it. I tried the steps on this tutorial, Samba: HowTo Mount a CIFS Network Share [AKA Map Network Drive] in openSUSE 10 & 11 plus FAQs and it worked perfectly on 2 other computers with the same USB device, but in one of them, when I add a line in the cron table using crontab -e and close my editor, I get this message:

    Code:
    cepiolidus@linux-s7c4:~> crontab -e
    no crontab for cepiolidus - using an empty one
    crontab: installing new crontab
    "/tmp/crontab.XXXXTkINIm":1: premature EOF
    errors in crontab file, can't install.
    Do you want to retry the same edit?
    I have tried this as root and rebooting the PC and it keeps doing the same thing. Any idas?

    This is my Opensuse version

    Linux linux-s7c4 2.6.27.23-0.1-pae #1 SMP 2009-05-26 17:02:05 -0400 i686 i686 i386 GNU/Linux

    Sounds like you didn't end the crontab with an end of line character in your editor. Put in a blank line at the end just in case.
