in reply to perl script in nohup running from crontab

Are you trying to run this as root? a regular user or a user with elevated permissions? If you are running as root. I would strongly advise against doing that. Instead have a user with the appropriate permission levels to do the task and nothing more. Running cron jobs as root could be problematic at best (a security issue at worst).

[cavac]: Ok, thanks for the information
[choroba]: Yes, tried now. Login didn't show the login window at all, timed out, but worked for the second time instantly.
[choroba]: Trying the daemon log...
[choroba]: It seems very slow. But the internet is weird here in Vietnam...
[choroba]: again, stopping it and trying for the second time fixed the problem
