Description _eemeli_ 1999-05-09 10:59:57 UTC
When running amd on RH Linux 6.0, command updatedb will never finish, and so datebase is not updated. Could be also caused by netfs and/or autofs.

*** Bug 2717 has been marked as a duplicate of this bug. *** When using updatedb to create the locate database, it locks up on empty directories. At first it seemed to be taking an extremely long time, but when running it with -v, it became obvious the it was getting locked up on certain directories. When a file was placed in the directory, it would continue without any problems

*** Bug 2728 has been marked as a duplicate of this bug. *** Don't know if this is a bug, but locate acts strange now and then, so... I notice that updatedb keeps on running (forever?) "ps aux" shows: updatedb(bdflush) Should there be something excluded in slocate? Or is this behaviour normal? Thanks, Stef. ------- Additional Comments From email@example.com 05/11/99 10:35 ------- that's update (bdflush), which is the kernel's cache flushing-daemon. It doesn't have anything to do with slocate. ------- Additional Comments From firstname.lastname@example.org 05/12/99 03:10 ------- OOPS!! Very sorry! But the reason I got confused was: running "updatedb" (and not slocate, sorry) hangs. (and I thought it was launched at startup, and confused it with update) Should I exclude something from updatedb? Thanks. Stef. ------- Additional Comments From email@example.com 05/13/99 11:04 ------- If you do 'strace -o output updatedb', and then look at the output file when it hangs, where is it hanging?

I've replace updatedb in slocate-1.6-1 to more perfectly imitate the behavior of the findutils updatedb. This means that certain directories and NFS or smb mount points will not be searched while building the slocate database.

*** Bug 3410 has been marked as a duplicate of this bug. *** slocate doesn't complete it's daily run. After about a day, it is still running, gobbling up the complete CPU, and pushing up the load. Dunno what's causing it, ps aul shows it's not doing anything in the kernel. Can't seem to find slocate in the list of components, so thought I might try this approuch instead... :)
