Question updatedb crashes: src/updatedb.c:730: scan_cwd: Assertion `name_size > 1' failed


Hi,

I am using Fedora 8 X86_64 version. When I try to manually issue the command 'updatedb' to re-build the mlocate database (as root), I get the following error:


Code:
command:
update -v

output:
....
....
.... 
(lines skipped ....)
....

/sys/module/nfnetlink/sections/.note.gnu.build-id
/sys/module/nousb/parameters
updatedb: src/updatedb.c:730: scan_cwd: Assertion `name_size > 1' failed.
Aborted
Any help/suggestion would be appreciated.

Sumanc,

I have exactly the same problem. Have you fixed it?

Sumac,

right after I post my question, I found a fix, or workaround. updatedb --add-prunepaths /sys

Try it.
