Brain n1uro has write a script to getting reports sent to you nightly from your maintenance.
#!/bin/bash LIBDIR=/usr/local/lib/fbb SYSOP=`/usr/local/sbin/fbbgetconf sysmail` HADD=`/usr/local/sbin/fbbgetconf call` MAIL=/usr/local/var/ax25/fbb/mail/mail.in echo echo "--- Running epurmess" echo $LIBDIR/tool/epurmess ret=$? echo "SP $SYSOP@$HADD" >> $MAIL echo "MSG MAINT at $HADD" >> $MAIL cat /usr/local/var/ax25/fbb/epurmess.res >> $MAIL echo "/EX" >> $MAIL exit $ret
#!/bin/bash LIBDIR=/usr/local/lib/fbb MAIL=/usr/local/var/ax25/fbb/mail/mail.in SYSOP=`/usr/local/sbin/fbbgetconf sysmail` HADD=`/usr/local/sbin/fbbgetconf call` echo echo "--- Running epurwp" echo $LIBDIR/tool/epurwp 40 90 ret=$? echo "SP $SYSOP@$HADD" >> $MAIL echo "WP MAINT at $HADD" >> $MAIL cat /usr/local/var/ax25/fbb/epurwp.res >> $MAIL echo "/EX" >> $MAIL exit $ret
I have some trouble to get things going so i change some line in the scipt.
I have change the line
SYSOP=`/usr/local/sbin/fbbgetconf sysmail` HADD=`/usr/local/sbin/fbbgetconf call`
SYSOP=`/usr/local/sbin/fbbgetconf -f /usr/local/etc/ax25/fbb/fbb.conf sysop` HADD=`/usr/local/sbin/fbbgetconf -f /usr/local/etc/ax25/fbb/fbb.conf call`
fbbgetconf needs a option.
Output off the script.

I have tried the Linfbb Maintainence script and it does not generate any daily mail.in
files are in the directories you mention.
do i need to set up any new lines in fbb.conf or create a cron job for each file
if i run the files manually they work and a mail.in is sent to the BBS
can you suggest a cron job to run them daily.
I’m sorry, I made a mistake.
At first I didn’t realize what was going on. But I found the error.
I had said it should be copied to /usr/lib/fbb/script/maintenance/ but it must be /usr/local/lib/fbb/script/maintenance/
So copy the files to /usr/local/lib/fbb/script/maintenance/ and run the housekeeping with /K in sysop mode.
Now you get some maintenance mail. (I hope)
I will adjust the text in the message.
Sorry for the inconvenience.
Just a follow up on the scripts
i put two lines in crontab which worked at 13:00 today, i will be changing the time to 23:00 tomorrow as it has run already
0 13 * * * root /home/kenny/20_epurmess sysop
0 13 * * * root /home/kenny/20_epurwp sysop
my question is
why are the start – End computing times different , ie 13:00 and 02:01
Start computing : 19-12-04 13:00
End computing : 19-12-04 13:00
Start computing : 19-12-04 02:01
End computing : 19-12-04 02:01

If I run it from housekeeping then this problem does not exist. So I think the problem is that you are running it off from a cronjob. If I running it manually i also have this problem.
Thanks for your reply,
the scripts did not work with Xfbb housekeeping set for 3:00am
if it just the WP time that shows different then i will leave the lines in crontab
as it is not effecting anything.
i am waiting to see if my other Xfbb BBS running on a Pi3 will run the scripts at 23:00
tonight, if not then i will try it with the two lines in crontab as well.
thanks for your help.
like the website, interesting items
