Q1: SuSE was getting lots of inquiries from rank newbies wondering why
their hard disks started chattering every morning at ~1AM (updatedb cron
Q2: I know of no replacement. If you know enough to use it, simply
install the rpm.
Q3: ARCHIVES.gz on the first CD lists every file in every rpm. grep thru
it to answer any 'WHich rpm do I install to get foo?' questions.
`which` will search your current path for a specific executable.
`locate' will search the locate db for any file. (check the config -
some branches of the filesystem may be skipped by updatedb).
