Well, I can run it from the command line as my normal user. I'm using
Ubuntu 9.10, and I know that the cron.daily stuff is running as root.
Shouldn't that mean root can run the script fine? If I add an su in it
to my normal account, how do I do it so I'm not prompted for the
password? That defeats the purpose of if running in the background if I
have to be there to enter the password every day.
