rebuilding whatis database - weekly output for Sat Mar 23 04:30:00 CET 2013]
I have this in my weekly.conf (NetBSD 6.0):
# $NetBSD: weekly.conf,v 1.3 2000/10/01 05:53:03 lukem Exp $
# Add local overrides below
because rebuild_whatisdb=NO could be found in /etc/defaults/weekly.
And I get this in my weekly mail:
Date: Sat, 23 Mar 2013 04:30:00 +0100 (CET)
From: Charlie Root <root%murthe.falu.nl@localhost>
Subject: murthe.falu.nl weekly output for Sat Mar 23 04:30:00 CET 2013
Rebuilding locate database:
[: closing paren expected
Not rebuilding whatis databases
Rebuilding man page index:
It looks like that is because of these lines in /etc/weekly:
# $NetBSD: weekly,v 184.108.40.206 2012/08/08 14:36:55 martin Exp $
if checkyesno rebuild_whatisdb; then
if [ -x /usr/libexec/makewhatis -a \( -f /etc/man.conf -o \
-o -d /usr/share/man \) ]; then
echo "Rebuilding whatis databases:"
nice -n 5 /usr/libexec/makewhatis -f
echo "Not rebuilding whatis databases"
Do other people see that too? I'd think that the backslash would
properly continue the line of the "[" command.
Looking at it a bit more, there isn't even a /usr/libexec/makewhatis
command. That makes the existence of this bit of script even more
