You (olivares) are not allowed to access to (crontab) because of pam configuration.



Dear fellow testers,

It has been a while and I have been having troubles editing my crontab.

Even root cannot access it :(

This is telling me something.  I wonder what I need to do to get this fixed.


[root riohigh ~]# crontab -l                                                    

Authentication service cannot retrieve authentication info
