Could you please indicate where are you running Tiger and how did you build (or if you used some Linux distribution package)

It seems that you built Tiger manually and did not define the tiger configuration directory properly. The error is originated in the fact that Tiger cannot find its own configuration file.

Every hour, on the hour, I am getting a system email from Cron Daemon with the following subject:

Cron <root@----> test -x /usr/sbin/tigercron && { [ -r "$DEFAULT" ] && . "$DEFAULT" ; nice -n$NICETIGER /usr/sbin/tigercron -q ; } (failed)

and the following body:

.: 1: Can't open /config

I have not been able to find a solution to this, or a similar problem for that matter. Also, I don't see anything in the configuration files, even cronrc, that is running something every hour in the first place. Does anybody know what this is and how to fix it? Thank you.
