openSUSE Recommended Update: find-utils: This update prevents updatedb to
run on unknown file system types.
______________________________________________________________________________

Announcement ID: openSUSE-RU-test-2010:36753-1
Rating: low
References: #591460 #601894
Affected Products:
openSUSE 11.2
______________________________________________________________________________

An update that has two recommended fixes can now be
installed.

Description:

Find used /etc/mtab to determine the file system type and
thus wrongly classified autofs entries as unknown as these
are only listed in /proc/mtab in newer kernels. As updatedb
didn't ignore unknown file system types it tried to run
find on automounted directories.

This update makes find to use /proc/mtab and updatedb to
ignore directories with unknown file system type.
