cron.daily mails fatal error message in fedora core 2


Hi there,
I am getting two separate emails from my cron.daily

here is the first mail message
***************************************************************************************************
/etc/cron.daily/slocate.cron:

fatal error: updatedb: create_db(): rename: No such file or directory
***************************************************************************************************
Here is my crontab:
SHELL=/bin/bash
PATH=/sbin:/bin:/usr/sbin:/usr/bin
MAILTO=root
HOME=/

# run-parts
01 * * * * root run-parts /etc/cron.hourly
02 4 * * * root run-parts /etc/cron.daily
22 4 * * 0 root run-parts /etc/cron.weekly
42 4 1 * * root run-parts /etc/cron.monthly

createdb is here (which is in the PATH of the crontab):
[root@dot cron.daily]# which updatedb
/usr/bin/updatedb

Here is the second mail message:
***************************************************************************************************
/etc/cron.daily/00webalizer:

Error: Unable to lock DNS cache file /var/lib/webalizer/dns_cache.db
***************************************************************************************************

I assume they are related....
Any light you can shed on this would be most welcome!
thanks in advance.

Might be a permissions problem with your /var partion. Is it mounted read-only? What happens when you run updatedb and webalizer manually?
