I installed some RPMs related to "docbook" and then issued the "updatedb"
It immediately reported a segmentation fault.
I then uploaded the latest rpm for "slocate" that I could find and
installed it: slocate-2.2-1k
The problem still perisists.
A few days ago I installed the latest Helix-code version of Gnome.
So now I cannot "updatedb" and I cannot use "locate" to find newly
Gnome provides alternatives so this is not crippling. I just think it
I am running Red Hat 6.1 with many things updated.
Did you update to the pinstripe glibc? If you didn't,
slocate from pinstripe *will* segfault.
I have not changed "glibc" since I installed Red Hat 6.1. I suspect that I do
not want to change it now since it may affect many other things in subtle ways.
The "rpm" that I used to install the latest version of "slocate" did not object.
If you actually installed the pinstripe RPM on 6.1, that
is not guaranteed to work.
If you installed something else and can reliably reproduce
this, please re-open. A stack trace would be helpful.
