#1156 closed bug (fixed)

/bin/updatedb broken

Reported by: elmo Owned by: axeld
Priority: normal Milestone: R1
Component: Applications/Command Line Tools Version: R1/pre-alpha1
Keywords: Cc:
Blocked By: Blocking:
Has a Patch: no Platform: All

Description

First of all, it didn't have executable bit set, so I had to run it manually with "sh /bin/updatedb". Then, it's apparently missing some component.

updatedb: line 105: frcode: command not found updatedb: new database would be empty

And the relevant line of updatedb is } | sort -f | $frcode > $LOCATE_DB.n

The definition of $frcode is on line 83: : ${frcode=frcode}

find / -name frcode doesn't give any results.

About Haiku says that the revision number is 20683.

The easiest solution would be to remove it altogether. Since it doesn't have any value in Haiku, I don't really think why we should include it anyway (besides that it seems to have been part of BeOS).

Strange, but i get null sized updatedb file now, using image form haikuhost.com. Also StyledEdit can't open this file (Bad argument type passed to function)

Replying to axeld:

I'm all for removing unnecessary legacy stuff. Especially, if it's the easiest way to fix a bug. :)
