Re: Odd warning when using the find command



This problem was mentioned here previously.
I saved the details of the message and have included them below:

**************

System message:

find: WARNING: Hard link count is wrong for /proc: this may be a bug
in your filesystem driver.  Automatically turning on find's -noleaf
option.  Earlier results may have failed to include directories that
should have been searched.

Solution:

Try changing the entry in updatedb.conf from =no to =yes.

You might want to run 'updatedb &' as root initially to get the file
search feature to be of some value.

cat /etc/updatedb.conf
# Set DAILY_UPDATE to yes to enable running updatedb
DAILY_UPDATE=yes
