Hmmm....now I'm not getting a duplication of the error...
But i've seen updatedb terminate, *seemingly*, prematurely with a
/usr/bin/find: . changed during execution of /usr/bin/find
I don't quite know what that means...
but say I locate updatedb, I get:
law> locate updatedb
C:\/Documents and Settings/law/.backups/updatedb.bak
Now this is likely what I would want -- but it's not the way I would
expect the program to work!
My start dirs are "C:\\" "/".
So why don't I see:
And this is a bit odd:
# -- finding under root finds the cyg files, but I get that strange
law> find C:\\root -name find.exe
find: . changed during execution of find
#but finding from C:\\ doesn't find the cygwin files...
law> find C:\\ -name find.exe
(sorry for long response lag time...too many plates to juggle)
