Description Mike Wangsmo 1999-02-08 09:49:24 EST
package is missing the updatedb script in the findutils
package.
Comment 1 Jeff Johnson 1999-02-08 17:28:59 EST
From the current findutils specfile:
# these are excluded as we ship slocate (ewt)
#/usr/man/man1/updatedb.1
#/usr/man/man5/locatedb.5
#/usr/bin/locate
#/usr/bin/updatedb
#/usr/man/man1/locate.1

Comment 3 Mike Wangsmo 1999-02-08 17:43:59 EST
ok, I see the slocate comment, now.  I guess then, the findutils
crond job needs to be fixed to call slocate instead of updatedb.
Comment 4 Jeff Johnson 1999-02-08 17:53:59 EST
The functionality of updatedb has been replaced by that of slocate
as in

bash$ rpm -qlp slocate-1.4-1.i386.rpm
/etc/cron.daily/slocate.cron
/usr/bin/locate
/usr/bin/slocate
/usr/man/man1/locate.1
/var/lib/slocate

I have removed the remnant updatedb.cron and /usr/lib/findutils
in findutils-4.1-28.
