31  Assistance / Pardus for beginners / Re: Locate & updatedb on: October 28, 2007, 01:02:49 AM
Hello DANHO,

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?

I can't find ( Tongue ) locate or updatedb, not even in the man pages. Am I doing something wrong or have they been excluded for a reason? Is there an alternative?

My name is Tjalling and I'm from the Netherlands. I wasn't completely happy with the previous distro I was using so I had a look at a few other distros. Pardus was recommended and I'm pleasantly surprised with how it looks and functions so far. I'll probably test a few more distros but there's a lot less urgency now, in stead I may actually do something with software rather than watch it being installed.  Wink
