Also cruise control was gebrokened (after windows update reboot it was not started).
I had accessed it one day before it went broken so I thought I was doing something wrong. Quick google shows on windows JavaService wrapper can be used to install it as windows service. Hmmm. I wonder could cygrunsrv do that.
2 builds after it is reenabled someone breaks the build! :) Good timing :)$ cygrunsrv -I cron -p /usr/sbin/cron -a -D $ cygrunsrv -L cron $ net start cron The cron service is starting. The cron service was started successfully. $ cygrunsrv -Q cron Service : cron Current State : Running Controls Accepted : Stop Command : /usr/sbin/cron -D $ crontab -e 44 4 * * * "/cygdrive/c/Documents and Settings/user/bin"/run_updatedb_intune.sh 2> /dev/null 55 9 * * * echo "james cron test" > /tmp/jamesCronTest.txt # at 4:44am daily $ export EDITOR=vi $ cat ~/bin/run_updatedb_intune.sh updatedb --prunepaths='/proc /cygdrive/c/program_disk/cygwin /cygdrive/c/Documents.and.Settings/[^/]*/Local.Settings/Temp /cygdrive/c/Documents.and.Settings/[^/]*/Local.Settings/Temporary.Intern et.Files /cygdrive/c/Documents.and.Settings/[^/]*/Local.Settings/Application.Data /Mozilla/Firefox/Profiles/[^/]*/Cache /cygdrive/[^/]*/System.Volume.Information /cygdrive/c/data/System.Volume.Information /cygdrive/c/backup/System.Volume.Information /cygdrive/c/shared/System.Volume.Information /cygdrive/c/program_disk/System.Volume.Information /cygdrive/s/[a-ik-zA-Z].* /cygdrive/r /cygdrive/h ' # /cygdrive/s is share # u is user # h is home (software/...) # r is read-only svn
