Description Vladimir Kotal 2008-08-04 15:51:10 EDT
Description of problem:

By default makewhatis runs daily via /etc/cron.daily/makewhatis.cron. This is CPU intensive task and almost of no value for machines used exclusively with GUI only (i.e. no terminal windows).

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

Actual results:
periodic runs of makewhatis are controlled via MAKEWHATISDBUPDATES variable in /etc/man.config

Expected results:
There should be a way how to disable makewhatis runs from a GUI.

Hello, for now I'm closing this bug as WONTFIX. 
You are right there is no gui application which can be use to set this, but there is no need to do man config gui - man has not so much options and settings. There has more sense to do some gui application which can configure cron jobs. 
But for now there is nothing like it too.
