Description Bryce Nesbitt 1999-12-10 00:19:33 UTC
I've walked a number of people through RedHat installs.
Inviariably I say "type man -k <foo>" to find out about
<foo>.  On a freshly installed machine this fails.  Same
for "locate <foo>".

It fails until the machine is left running after midnight.

The install procedure should force the cron jobs to run, so
the machine is ready and complete, fresh out of the box.

It's a tossup. If you do this, you get the complaint that
the hard drive starts rattling as soon as you boot up.

Comment 2 Bill Nottingham 2000-01-13 15:49:59 UTC
This should be fixed in Raw Hide with the introduction of anacron.
