I have a crontab that looks like this:
* * * * * /bin/date >> /tmp/every-minute.log 0 8 * * * /bin/date >> /tmp/eight-am.log
The first line works just fine. The second does not seem to fire at all, no matter what time I set it to run.
The timestamp that is dumped every minute by the first command shows the correct and expected date/time. I have my timezone configured correctly on the raspberry pi.
So why would a cronjob work only if it is set to run every minute and not at a specific time?
