Slackware-current ChangeLog (2017-03-17)

  • a/mlocate-0.26-i586-1.txz
    This replaces slocate as the system locate/updatedb utilities.
    In tests here, mlocate was about 20% faster than slocate at creating a
    new database. When updating an existing database, it was many times
    faster. On my machine, the nightly database update took about 5 minutes
    with slocate, but only a few seconds with mlocate.
    I might miss (slightly) the heavy drive activity at 04:40 that would let
    me know that it was time for bed. ;-)
    Be sure to move the new /etc/updatedb.conf into place when installing
    this package.
