I'm a scientist by training, a software developer by choice, and an IT generalist by way of over 15 years' experience in various IT-related endeavors.

I'm partial to Java, XML and Linux (mostly Red Hat-flavored).

comment Does RHEL execute all cronjob files under /etc/cron.d/*?
@Gilles - sorry for the delay in responding. As of Red Hat EL 5, Red Hat uses vixie-cron. RHEL 6 uses cronie. After reviewing the RHEL 5 documentation, I think it confirms my original (if incorrectly sourced) conclusion. Again, thanks for all the help on digging for this.

comment Does RHEL execute all cronjob files under /etc/cron.d/*?
@Gilles: Thanks for the pointers. I'm using Fedora, which has Cronie installed (also a fork of Vixie/ISC Cron). The man page does mention /etc/cron.d as being one one of the search paths. I apologize if there wasn't enough detail in my answer - I'm reasonably sure that this should apply to Red Hat as well. Please let me know if that's not the case

comment Change main partition size to install another distribution
@Gilles - apologies for the poor phrasing; I was attempting to convey what you stated, in that you have to have Gnome on your system to use GParted without using the media-based version.

@Toto - I added the links. Sorry I didn't add them initially; for some reason I was convinced I was too new a user to be able to add more than one link. Oops :)
