So I want to save some power and let the raspberry pi download my files instead of my PC which is a power monster
I want to start my downloads at 3am and pause them at 7am. I tried to use crontab but it never works
How can I do this :?
I've written a python script to do this for me but I'm not sure how to always execute it at startup or leave it running because I only use SSH. I'm not sure if it's ok to always have this script running in terms of cpu usage or other safety stuff! (it just executes wget and sends terminate signal if its 3am or 7am, I have a file on desktop which i add my links too thought ssh)
I have archlinux installed on it!
here's my crontab which doesn't work:
0 3 * * * wget -c -i /home/mename/Desktop/downloads.txt 0 7 * * * killall wget
still doesn't work, i made this job
* * * * * echo "WAIT WHAT?" > /home/alarm/Desktop/Iscromwell.list adding this to SU works (running
crontab -ewith sudo) isn't this dangerous :? why doesn't it work as a normal user!?
I moved this to Linux section as this is more Linux related now. Things got serious! I have no cron service running and i get an error trying to run it
