Q: vold is not running and crontab/ed

Post by u126068.. » Sun, 29 Jul 2001 00:33:20

I stopped the vold then brurned a cd. Then i rebooted the system and
now i see the vold is not running.
i do ps -ef|grep vold and see only the grep vold entry. Either the
vold is not running or the output of th ps command is not right.
actually, i retarted the vold and still the same output as previously.
only grep vold entry..??
and how do i make crontab -e to launch vi editor intsead of ed.

'setenv EDITOR vi' or 'EDITOR=vi ; export EDITOR' depending on your
shell.  'man crontab' explains this in the section for the '-e' option.

1. ed command in an install file but ed not found - what to do please?

I have an installation file from an old Mandrake 6.0 (I now have 7.0
installed) and in this file for Adobe Acrobat3 is a line with the


command. But it gets an error as it can't find    ed.
I tried changing this to   vi    but then it failed reporting input not
coming from ???

Is there anywhere I can get the    ed   command or can I do something else??
