yet, i think it should at 4:25am if i have my fields correct:


17 * * * * root  run-parts --report /etc/cron.hourly
25 4 * * * root test -e /usr/sbin/anacron || run-parts --report
47 6 * * 7 root test -e /usr/sbin/anacron || run-parts --report
52 6 1 * * root test -e /usr/sbin/anacron || run-parts --report

why is the daily cron running at 7:30am?
What time did you start up the machine? The cron jobs will run through anacron shortly after startup if they haven't been run in a certain time period. Seeing as how my computer is always shutdown at 4:25am, my daily cronjobs always run shortly after I start up. If I started up the machine at 7:25, they'd run at about 7:30.
