Description Kaj J. Niemi 2004-01-18 20:22:38 UTC
Description of problem:
It would be nice if slocate would exclude sysfs, usbdevfs filesystems
by default. I guess adding them to /etc/cron.daily/slocate.cron is
enough since /etc/updatedb.conf doesn't seem to be in use.

New directories to exclude would be /sys and /udev I think.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

Thanks :)

I guess this one could be considered as nice to have for FC2 and
linked to bug #114963? Thanks.
