comment Cron not working at startup, but works if restarted?
Exactly right! Our system boots with a time in 2004, and cron seems to get confused when the time eventually gets set correctly. Made cron last in startup, after time had settled, and all good.

Worked! Made cron start last, and apparently the time stuff was done by then. Hey post your advice as an answer so I can mark it as answered, and give you the credit... gotta build up that reputation! Thanks!

Definitely yes - the unit has no RTC, so it goes out and gets the current time - so that's likely the problem? Any ideas on a solution?

comment How can I reboot my Linux system every 60 seconds?
Ok - finally got cron installed - but it's not working at startup, only if I restart it? I'm going to post as a separate question. Thanks!

comment How can I reboot my Linux system every 60 seconds?
As far as I can tell /etc/rc.local is not getting called, only the things in /etc/rc5.d get called. Maybe something about this distro? Here's my attempt: root@SL1000-1103DC:~# cd /etc root@SL1000-1103DC:/etc# ls -l rc.local -rwxr-xr-x 1 root root 23 Jun 16 13:47 rc.local root@SL1000-1103DC:/etc# cat rc.local echo "Hello rc.local"
