Updatedb to run everyday

view story

http://askubuntu.com – How do I edit update.conf at /etc/update.conf to run everyday? This would enable me to use locate with a very recent database. I read this: default settig,updatedb,it has been in /etc/cron.daily and its name is slocate.cron if you want to run updatedb on startup, you can add the line updatebd to the file /etc/rc.d/rc.local. In FC4 you must edit the file /etc/updatedb.conf and set DAILY_UPDATE=yes. But thats for Fedora. (HowTos)
