Subject: updatedb does not index /home when /home is Btrfs
Date: Fri, 3 Nov 2017 18:15:53 -0600	[thread overview]
Message-ID: <CAJCQCtSf1mX0kWCRjfSTwZKwZC6mMN7Vdio0LJdCCY96ifte4g@mail.gmail.com> (raw)

Ancient bug, still seems to be a bug.
https://bugzilla.redhat.com/show_bug.cgi?id=906591

The issue is that updatedb by default will not index bind mounts, but
by default on Fedora and probably other distros, put /home on a
subvolume and then mount that subvolume which is in effect a bind
mount.

There's a lot of early discussion in 2013 about it, but then it's
dropped off the radar as nobody has any ideas how to fix this in
mlocate.
