This problem has already been reported on 7/22/2009 9:37 PM, but I think to
have found the reason for it.
Unfortunately I am not able to put together a patch; -- never done one.
What follows is the message I get when running updatedb:
assertion "ent->fts_info == FTS_NSOK || state.type != 0" failed: file
"/usr/src/findutils-4.5.4-1/src/findutils-4.5.4/find/ftsfind.c", line 475,
I have downloaded the sources tarball for findutils-4.5.4-1 and checked line
475 of ftsfind.c. The block of code line 475 is part of, follows:
/* Cope with the usual cases. */
if (ent->fts_info == FTS_NSOK
|| ent->fts_info == FTS_NS /* e.g. symlink loop */)
(THIS IS LINE 475)
assert (ent->fts_info == FTS_NSOK || state.type != 0);
mode = state.type;
I can write some c but am not an expert by a long shot, however there is a
comment INSIDE the conditional statement; is that legal c?
I hope to have been helpful rather than annoying, and hope this was the
right list to write to.
Thankyou for your attention.
