Apps :: updatedb : /usr/lib/locate/frcode not found
Well I have now few questions about these locate & updatedb fonctionlities and the workaround I described in my previous post :
- does this means that gnu-utils and findutils cannot co-exist ? If yes, I should simply remove gnu-utils to have a working locate & updatedb ?
- is there any reason locate & updatedb are implemented in both library findutils & gnu-utils ?
does this means that gnu-utils and findutils cannot co-exist ?
I have never tested it, but it seems to me that they should be able to be installed at the same time. If you want to use findutils.uci, remember that the update commad is NOT "updatedb". It's "/opt/findutils/bin/updatedb" Those are two separate files, each with its own support files.
is there any reason locate & updatedb are implemented in both library findutils & gnu-utils ?
It's to provide more choice. Personally I don't use gnu-utils because it loads into ram. Instead I use UCI packages that are mounted....coreutils.uci, findutils.uci, procps.uci, etc. The uci packages are also the complete utility packages as released by their developers, rather than the selected programs that are put in gnu-utils. Many people use gnu-utils because it is more convenient, or it supplies enough tools to do what they need, or for some other reason. It's just about choice.By reading your post (thanks for your explanation), and as newbie with DSL, I understand that there are in fact different types of DSL extensions :. *uci, *tar.gz and *dsl. I will document myself more on these to try to build a more consistent DSL, ie. avoiding a maybe duplicated or confused installation (like the one I started with for this thread). Also I ordered on Internet the book 'The Official Damn Small Linux Book' ... well because reading books is also I think a good way to learn.
