    how do I get cron to run, knoppix 6.2?

    cron doesn't start automatically when I boot the system. I did a search on this forum for cron but didn't find anything. How do I start cron at startup?

    I got it to work by adding

    sudo /etc/init.d/cron start

    to the /etc/X11/xinit/xinitrc file before starting X. But this is a kluge. If anyone has a better method I'd like to know what it is.

    I think that you can add cron to the SERVICES string in /etc/rc.local
