I wanted to have my computer do updatedb daily, so thinking I was smart, I added the section regarding updatedb from /etc/weekly to /etc/daily, and read the report next day.. It seems not to be working, because I got the following comment:
/etc/daily: WARNING: $rebuild_locatedb is not set properly - see rc.conf(5).
However, "man 5 rc.conf" doesn't show anything regarding "rebuild_locatedb"
Do Wrong Things (tm) :P
Add things to /etc/daily, which are not defined in /etc/daily.conf, and read wrong pointers for the docs.
Well, the docs should point to man 5 weekly.conf and not to man 5 rc.conf, but I don't have a clue howto build a diff for that ;)
