I'm lost as to why my bash script is failing.  I have written a bash script that if I run it manually it will successfully complete the 2 steps in the script.  All the script does is run VLC to show a camera feed and then update a test.txt file with the current date so I can tell it's running. I've added the line @reboot /path/to/my/script.sh to the crontab -e file and it will run at reboot, but the VLC part seems to fail. The test.txt file is being updated so I know it ran, but it won't open VLC like it's supposed to.  I'm very confused.  Any help is appreciated. Than ..read more

It is a remarkable program! That said, I got Wazuh dashboard user admin questions that prevent me from leaving it in service ATM. I would appreciate any help RE default user accounts management. It is just not working for me nor is what they are saying making any sense, despite me being a "Linux guy" exclusively at home. Thanks ..read more
