Hi,

I am new to forum --and a new kindle owner. I have rooted my kindle, and trying to write a script that will run periodically. I was planning to use cron for this, but I don't have it. I have crontab though, I have a crontab file (/etc/crontab/root).

How do I restart cron? Actually how do I restart any service?

Ummmmm... If it doesn't have to be run at certain intervals, you could have it run everytime a screensaver happens... For that, you would use dos1's eventManager, located just a couple thread sdown from this one..

well, what I say is that - there is nothing in /etc/init.d folder in Kindle PW.

I assume that you've found it already by yourself, but just for clarity: startup scripts are located at /etc/upstart, crond startup is controlled by /etc/upstart/cron.conf, to restart cron isuue, uhm, restart cron

The K5 and PW use upstart. Scripts are triggered by events rather than run levels at startup.
