updatedb error


Hi,

I was trying to update using updatedb but I had the following error message:
Code:
[root@localhost noha]# updatedb
updatedb: src/updatedb.c:721: scan_cwd: Assertion `name_size > 1' failed.
Aborted
[root@localhost noha]#
What is this? and how may I solve it?
I use an AMD 64 Athlon machine equipped with Fedora 7.

Noha

This is a bug in FC7:

https://bugzilla.redhat.com/show_bug.cgi?id=242715

Solution:

# updatedb --add-prunepaths /sys
