Hello! Can anybody help me with user crontab file? I have problem: i installed raspbian in Read-only mode, i have some scripts, (cron jobs) that works every 5 minutes, 10 etc. I set it by crontab -e command, but after reboot, system is clean it, i think, because i moved /var/spool dir to tmpfs (like howto), and user cronjob file stored at /var/spool/cron/crontabs dir. How i can fix it for not clearing after system reboot? Thanks!
Did anyone figured out how to use crontab? it is wiped after reboot and i really need it :(
We need to put the system into Read Write Mode before changing the crontab
If you followed this tuto should be something like that
sudo mount -o remount,rw /
Then edit your crontab
sudo crontab -e
put pack in Read Only or reboot
sudo mount -o remount,ro /
Charles you are going wrong. crontab -e give us file on /tmp which has been deleted on boot. We need to go this way:
nano /etc/crontab (dont forget to add user) example below:
- root /usr/bin/vpncheck.sh > /dev/null 2>&1
I was wondering if I don't have entry about /tmp being a mount entry point for tmpfs neither in fstab nor mtab, what would be the point in moving things there? Am I missing something or?
I am playing with Raspberry PI-2 and Raspbian Jessie.

Great article, thanx! To be able to use sudo i did have to add this line to /etc/fstab as well:
tmpfs /var/lib/sudo/ts tmpfs nosuid,nodev 0 0
Has this tutorial worked for anyone? The 1st error is saw was under Move files to temp filesystem after running:
touch /tmp/dhcpcd.resolv.conf; ln -s /tmp/dhcpcd.resolv.conf /etc/resolv.conf
Failed to create symbolic link ‘etc/resolv.conf’ file exists. Next after reboot see errors regarding “a start job is running for dhcpd on all interfaces..." The raspi fails to boot and see pi@raspberrypi: prompt. Thanks in advance for any insights!
