Is there a system wide scheduler (cron) built into the default arm-angstrom-linux-gnueabi or console-trdx-image?
I would like to run a shell bash script every few hours and I would like to find out if there is a specific toolset that is available to help me.
Any suggestion or recommendation is appreciated.
Our demo images have neither a cron deamon installed nor activated. You could add the
cronie package to the image to get one.
With systemd timer units coupled with a matching service file you can do time based activation of tasks.
/lib/systemd/system/systemd-tmpfiles-clean.service /lib/systemd/system/systemd-tmpfiles-clean.timer for an example.
Arch Linux provides a good introduction here.
