updatedb -f nfs does the trick, but wouldn't that be better for default ?
Comment 1 Bill Nottingham 2000-07-04 15:29:42 EDT
Hm, possibly. It doesn't include it when run from cron.

Perhaps we should add a default updatedb.conf that does the same thing?
Comment 2 Jeremy Katz 2000-07-06 02:36:21 EDT
If you do this (which would be a good thing... stale nfs mounts can cause
problems in this case), also make sure that afs is excluded.  I believe it is,
but am not 100% certain and pegging every afs server on the planet tends to be a
bad idea :)

now slocate-2.2-5 contains a default updatedb.conf.
