Im having an issue getting a script to run in my linux box. this is what i have done so far.

Ive created a simple script. echo "hello world" save it as hello ,chmod 755 . when i run the ./hello the script runs fine. so i want this script to run every one minute on the box so this is my entry in my crontab file...

01 * * * * root /home/myscripts/hello

for some reason this isnt working im log in as root. any ideas? im new to scripting. Im getting an email to root saying "environment variable not set"

Try with:

01 * * * * root /bin/sh /home/myscripts/hello

or:

01 * * * * root /bin/bash /home/myscripts/hello
