Description Hiroaki Abe 2011-08-27 01:40:02 UTC
	The location of locate database can change in /etc/locate.rc.
	But the script of rebuilding locate database, 310.locate,
	doesn't see the definition in /etc/locate.rc. The location of
	locate database is hard coded in the script as "locdb=/var/db/locate.database".
	So, when changed the location of locate database in /etc/locate.rc,
	it failed to update the locate database.

How-To-Repeat: 	Change the "FCODES" in /etc/locate.rc from the default settings.
	Then run the /etc/periodic/weekly/310.locate.
