Re: After upgraded, cron doesn't work.
Before doing the following, please note this is for testing purposes, and you will need to undo this within five minutes.
Add this to /etc/crontab (using sudo)
* * * * * root echo test
You should start getting emails.
Don't forget to remove the line from /etc/crontab.
If you don't get email, look in messages or syslogd to see what's up.
