For people that don't like to use vi as the editor of choice for editing crontab entries (crontab -e), here's a howto to change the default editor:<p>In a console *before* using crontab -e command type:<p>export VISUAL=<editorname><p>examples:<p>export VISUAL=edit<p>export VISUAL=e3<p>To make the change permanent add this line in /etc/profile (and then copy /etc/profile to /mnt/router/etc to survive a reboot).<p>Hope this helps!

when I go to /mnt/router/etc there is no profile file, is that normal? just copy the profile from /etc to there?
