I was trying to restart my network on my Fedore14 box with a crontab. I got this error/etc/init.d/functions: line 51: /dev/stderr: Permission deniedApparently I have fallen prey to an official bugBug 650103 – /etc/init.d/functions: line 51: /dev/stderr: Permission deniedI like it when I discover that I am not doing anything wrong and it is the software that is at fault.
