updatedb in alternative hard drive
« on: November 03, 2012, 02:30:30 pm »

Hello.  I have two hard drives (a master and slave).  When I run updatedb, and then use "locate" to find files, it only searches the master hard drive.  Is there a way to have both drives covered by the updatedb command?  Currently the secondary hard drive is at /media/Extra, whereas the first is simply at / (the root).
I am using VL7.0 standard with XFCE

/mnt and /media are normally part of the pruned folders in /etc/updatedb.conf
removing /media should fix it for you.
