Question /etc/cron.daily/find script


Hi all,

I have read that the locate command database is normally updated only once each day,as documented in the /etc/cron.daily/find script, but i didn't find any find script in /etc/cron.daily/ directory ?

NB: i use ubuntu 8.04.1

Try

grep updatedb /etc/cron.daily/*

In CentOS it's mlocate.cron
