Problem with installing crontab

Hey guys,

i have installed pyload succesfully and want it to start on every boot.

i am logged in as osmc via ssh and installed cron with “sudo apt-get install cron”.

with “sudo crontab -e” i added this line “@reboot /usr/share/pyload/ --daemon”.

i saved the file with given path and name, but it doesnt start on boot. :frowning:

Did you leave a trailing line?


If you just want to launch the daemon at boot why not add it to /etc/rc.local ?

I’m having a similar issue with crontab not working. Do i add the exact same line to rc.local?

try executing

pyLoadCore --daemon

If that works, then you can do

@reboot pyLoadCore --daemon
