Description kvasnica 1999-09-28 16:00:33 EDT
/var/lib/slocate/slocate.tmp is created
but not renamed to slocate.db if older slocate.db
already exists and slocate hangs.

Why/where is slocate hanging?

You should try the slocate from Raw Hide; it has at least
one known fix in it that could solve a hang...

Raw Hide is the rolling snapshot of our devel tree -
