Are you sure? It is running as a cron job, there is no terminal.

But I do!

I run it this way:


   -0,30 * * * * cer /home/cer/bin/dar_la_hora_en_cron hora


   echo "CER: using gst123"
   /usr/bin/gst123 --quiet $TEMPORAL  2>&1 > /tmp/dar_la_hora_en_cron.log

I understand that the construction "2>&1 >" should dump _everything_ to 
the log... well, it does not.

Why? It must be because gst123 is not using standard output methods.

It dumps this instead to the mail (cron):

   CER: using gst123
   tput: No value for $TERM and no -T specified
   Cannot connect to server socket err = No such file or directory
   Cannot connect to server request channel
   jack server is not running or cannot be started

And the log is empty!

cer at Telcontar:~> l /tmp/dar_la_hora_en_cron.log
- -rw-r--r-- 1 cer users 0 Aug  1 10:52 /tmp/dar_la_hora_en_cron.log

(it is not segfaulting this morning)

However, if I call the same script from a terminal, it is quiet:

   cer at Telcontar:~> dar_la_hora_en_cron hora
   CER: using gst123
   cer at Telcontar:~>

so the redirection works if called from a script (even if I use the 
- --verbose switch).
