5.1R, cron job "system-entropy" sending error email every 11minutes - SOLVED



Turns out that the cron job should not have been trying to execute ifconfig 
anyway.  I mistakenly put the configuration commands for my wireless card in 
/etc/rc.conf instead of creating and using /etc/start_if.wi0 for the 
ifconfig commands solved the problem.

Still clueless about getting the Firewire CD R/W to work though....

/sbin isn't in $PATH. Run /sbin/ifconfig, rather than just ifconfig, or as
another poster said, add /sbin to $PATH. Though personally I prefer the
former solution.
