Thread: broken pipe on makewhatis.cron

  1. broken pipe on makewhatis.cron

    Hi.


    Running FC4 on a bunch of Intel i686 boxes ...

    We recently replaced an older i686 with a newer model. We installed FC4 on
    same. /etc/cron.weekly/makewhatis.cron produces the msg
    zcat: stdout: Broken pipe
    65 times in its email report.

    For what it's worth, it appears that /var/cache/man/whatis is OK and
    up-to-date.

    Does anybody have an explanation for this error msg, and how to fix same?

    Thanks.

    There's a long discussion of this bug at
    https://bugzilla.redhat.com/bugzilla...g.cgi?id=64836

    It seems to come and go.
