    [Workaround found] cron help needed

    Updated:
    I found that fcron works fine with the same script and settings...

    Hi all

    I try to run a ripper-script using cron in order to populate the myth tv-guide.
    But it does not work.
    I have tried "everything".

    This script runs ok:
    #!/bin/sh
    echo "test" > /home/peter/test.txt

    This script does not run ok:
    #!/bin/sh
    cd /home/peter
    nice python /home/peter/xmltv/tv_grab_dk_all.py --out ud.xml
    nice /usr/bin/mythfilldatabase --update --file 1 ud.xml

    I cannot find anything in the log messages.
    Any ideas for further trace?
    What is not correct in script number two?
    Please note that it runs perfectly from the command line.

    I use this version of cron: 3.0pl1-100ubuntu2

    All help is very welcome
    Thanks
    Peter
