Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 3886
slocate & updatedb return code and exit status
Last modified: 2008-05-01 11:37:51 EDT
I am runnig under RH 6.0 and when root starts updatedb, the
exit status is always 1. Normally, it must be 0.
(root@foo)# echo $?
When I try with parameters like -u and -l 1 or -l 0, the
exit status is 1 yet.
When I try with slocate, the exit status is 1...
I just want to know if this problem comes from my system, or
the whole Redhat 6 has the same matter.
is it actually creating the database?
The exit code of 1 for slocate seems only to be used for
closed ; lack of input
