You are experiencing system crashes on Linux machines. Check the content of /etc/updatedb.conf.


Run the following as root: <`installDir>/i686_Linux/bin/ecfixupdatedb`.

If this does not address the problem, manually update /etc/updatedb.conf so that PRUNEFS includes efs100 and PRUNEPATHS includes /efs /efsroots, as in the example.


PRUNEFS="sysfs selinuxfs usbdevfs devpts NFS nfs nfs4 afs sfs proc smbfs cifs autofs auto iso9660 udf efs100"

PRUNEPATHS="/tmp /usr/tmp /var/tmp /afs /net /sfs /selinux /udev /mnt/floppy /media /efs /efsroots"
