Crontab Editor Frozen?

On AL 8.6 is there any way I can change the EDITOR to nano instead of VI? export doesn’t work. It’s good that AL 9 has this ability, but i have an 8.6 box that won’t allow this that I can tell.


Juuuust found it. The export in .bash_profile isn’t taken into consideration, but this works:
sudo env EDITOR=nano crontab -e
