I'm an EECS student at UC Berkeley. Interested in everything about computers. Primarily use Windows but with a large smattering of GNU software, enough that I consider it GNU/NT ;). I also like Linux in general but mostly run it in a VM, but I'm not a noob to Linux. I am also a new system administrator for the student group HKN. I'd appreciate any help and advice from more experienced sysadmins. We use mostly Linux systems, but we do occasionally have to do maintenance on a couple of Windows boxes.

comment MySQL equivalent to .pgpass, or automatic authentication in a cron job for mySQL
One thing I guess to add is that if running the script using sudo, you need to use -H to make sure that it uses root's home directory. But I think that problem shouldn't be an issue in a root cron job, correct?

Yeah bleh, apparently my search-fu is lacking.

Hmm, strangely, I found something promising through google rather than serverfault's own search: stackoverflow.com/questions/601995/…

See serverfault.com/posts/107027/revisions for proof that it was always like that.

I also restarted postfix, still no change.

Nope, I didn't edit that part of the post, it was always like that. I've restarted spamd maybe 10 times in the past hour. Also, the file in /var/lib/spamassassin/3.002005/updates_spamassassin_org/72_active.cf also has the fixed rule with [2-9] instead of [1-9]. While I'm not very practiced with regex, I'm not ignorant with it either. What I edited was the fact that I had tried changing the score in /etc/spamassassin/local.cf and even in the main 50_scores.cf file and it still hasn't had an effect.

comment Init.d vs Cron - which to use?
Oh, does /etc/rc.local get run on shutdown or reboot (runlevels 0 and 6 if I understand correctly)?

comment Init.d vs Cron - which to use?
Ah, that seems to be the simplest way to do it without leaving a lot of cruft everywhere.
