Description Chris Siebenmann 1999-04-12 02:12:25 EDT
The slocate.1 manpage included in the slocate RPM doesn't
document many of slocate's options, especially those for
controlling updates of the database. It also refers one
to a nonexistent updatedb(1L) manpage for documentation
on this.

 Given that the default slocate install is likely to
cause sysadmins at large sites to need to change it
rather badly (cf bug 2135) it would be good if the
full set of options and behavior was documented

a simple updatedb man page is added in slocate-1.4-5.
