openSUSE Recommended Update: mlocate: fixed handling of prunepaths ______________________________________________________________________________
Announcement ID: openSUSE-RU-2014:0462-1 Rating: low References: #861955 Affected Products: openSUSE 13.1 ______________________________________________________________________________
An update that has one recommended fix can now be installed.
This update fixes the following issue with mlocate: - bnc#861955: + Move the UPDATEDB_ variables parsing to cron service to have it working there as the upstream bash config is not exactly shell interpreted. * Sadly this way if user runs updatedb by hand it gets not properly populated, but at least the cron works with backcompat way. + Also respect the UPDATEDB_ when not running as root in the cron job. + Include findutils-locate variables in updatedb.conf if user still have them specified. * This ensures we can still load the variables user can specified in the /etc/sysconfig/locate namely UPDATEDB_PRUNEPATHS and UPDATEDB_PRUNEFS - Update comments in sysconfig.locate a bit to reflect reality.
