Enough of the cron jobs already
Last modified: 2010-07-29 12:19:55 EDT
Description of problem:
On Fedora 14 the mandb keeps running every day and it's worse than
makewhatis ever was. Why do we even need the blasted thing?!
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Synchronous, wait for a day for it to occur, usually when you need
the computer for something else.
Steps to Reproduce:
1. make sure rpm -V man-db
2. wait for a day
A lot of disk and CPU activity for no reason
No useless activity
Sure, I used apropos once or twice in the last year. But is it worth
the pain of it?
If you insist, run the database updates when new man pages are added,
not not every morning.
there is the configure file
when can be switch off the cron job.
Thanks, the CRON= parameter works.
