      I looked through the posts, I really did, and cant find an answer. Using an embedded node with the 2Gig flash drive. Node 1870 is working fine except that it crashes periodically but it always starts on reboot. I noticed that the periodic announcements were not being broadcast. Checked the crontab files, both repeater and root, and the appropriate lines were missing. Then I noticed I have no custom.crons file. I tried putting the lines in the irlp.crons file but that did not work. When I try to update the files, the scripts do not work either and I still have not found a way of updating the repeater crontab. Can I just create a file 'custom.crons' and what is the command that will put the lines into the crontab file. Help please.

        /home/irlp/scripts/update

        is run by user repeater
