Description Freek de Kruijf 2018-01-12 13:31:17 UTC
After the upgrade to 20180109 the "crontab -l" command gives the error:
'/var/spool/cron/tabs' is not a directory, bailing out.

Comparing /usr/bin/crontab on an olderversion of Tumbleweed shows this file is missing a bit.
As root the command "chmod u+s /usr/bin/crontab" makes the command workable again.
Comment 1 Freek de Kruijf 2018-01-29 11:46:48 UTC
Apparently solved.
