Thank you for answering but I'm not sure we understand eachother. I'm referring to the 'locate' command. For finding files it's like 'find' except 'find' searches the filesystem and 'locate' searches a database. 'Locate' therefore is faster but 'find' looks at the actual situation where 'locate' looks at the situation stored in a database. 'Updatedb' is the command to update the 'locate' database.
I don't know where those commands come from, perhaps they're distro specific, but I had them on other distros I've used. I ask my question because I don't know if there's a reason why I can't find them. I've checked pisi with 'list-available' and I have the 'findutils' ("GNU utilities to find files") package installed. Does anyone else have locate and updatedb, am I doing something wrong or is there "a Pardus way" to finding files?
