gpg script in cron failed with "stdin must be a tty"
Fri Aug 8 17:10:02 2003
I am running RedHat Linux AS 2.1.
I duplicate the process as root and it worked.
(logged in as root, create the keyrings and keys without passphrase, =
export, import, ...)
I am sure it's not the "rm", I tried it with or without "-f".

What flavor of linux are you using? Why did you edit crontab as opposed
to just putting the script in

rm -f /usr/dba/junk.out
else rm could ask you to verify that you want to delete the file. for
me it only asks when I am logged in as root, but I do not know what cron
also if you have sendmail installed, you may want to check roots mail to
see any cron error messages.
