Description eric 2007-07-25 15:21:23 UTC
Description of problem:
When running updatedb I get the following error:
updatedb: src/updatedb.c:721: scan_cwd: Assertion `name_size > 1' failed

This only happens when using the kernel.  The command works
properly under the 2.6.21-1.3228.fc7 kernel.

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

How reproducible: Each time.

Steps to Reproduce:
1. "updatedb" under root
Actual results:
updatedb: src/updatedb.c:721: scan_cwd: Assertion `name_size > 1' failed

Expected results:
For the db to be updated so "locate" will work.

Additional info:

something in /sys is confusing updatedb...

WORKAROUND: if you add "sysfs" to the PRUNEFS variable in /etc/updatedb.conf,
updatedb should succeed... it does on mine.

I just tried it and it seems to work.  Thanks!
