I’ve reinstalled my system due to hard drive replace. The install media is the DVD image of openSUSE Tumbleweed snapshot 20170429. Now, it’s upgraded to snapshot 20170502. I have a problem to use cron in this system.
As a normal user, when I run,
$ crontab -e
It says I have no permission,
bash: /usr/bin/crontab: Permission denied
But this works fine before this reinstall. And as I remembered, I had never messed with the permission of system files. The permission to cron command looks not right,
Sorry I’m not looking carefully enough. Inspired by your comments, I checked my system again. There is no file belonging to group ‘trusted’ in this folder. And the 3 files you mentioned including crontab have the same situation in my system,
cnzhx@a:/usr/bin> ls -l | grep trusted
cnzhx@a:/usr/bin> ls -l | grep "\-rwsr\-x\-\-\-"
-rwsr-x--- 1 root root 52336 Oct 16 2016 at
-rwsr-x--- 1 root root 55944 Apr 7 13:02 crontab
-rwsr-x--- 1 root root 31552 Oct 16 2016 fusermount
Maybe this is something new in Tumbleweed. I need to install it in a VM to find out if this is the case. But I don’t have time to do it until 10 days later.
P.S. Do you happen to know some tricks to check this from the repository or somewhere in the openQA system or else?
P.P.S. I don’t even have ‘trusted’ group in my system,
