I'm setting up a new computer, and for the first time I actually want to run updatedb as nobody instead of root. However, every time I try to run updatedb as nobody, I get
fatal error: updatedb: You are not authorized to create a default slocate database!
I've never run updatedb as any other user on this machine, and I tried touching /var/lib/slocate/slocate.db and then chmod it to 666.
Can anyone tell me what I need to do to make this work?
(oh yeah, Slack 9.1)
