I don't get an error about the db not existing or being populated. I get nothing. I know for a fact that the things I'm searching for exist on my box. I even tried
locate bin or
locate Users. I get nothing!
I tried updating the db:
sudo /usr/libexec/locate.updatedb, but still nothing.
sudo launchctl load -w /System/Library/LaunchDaemons/com.apple.locate.plist says that it's already loaded.
