it's only a hint for all users who want to configure the autostart for a TS3 server on openSuSE 12.1 .
All the fancy scripts or lines for crontab didn't work for me at first.

Since version 12.1 SuSE is working with systemd instead of sysVinit.
After deinstall rpm package systemd-sysvinit the system use sysVinit again and all the scripts or codes for crontab will work.

This errorsearch took me one week. Hope it helps somebody.
