I have installed findutils in Suse11 with yast2:

yast2 -i findutils

Seem all gone ok, but when I run e.g. locate - command not found. How I can install findutils so that can be accessible only by names? Thanks.

You need the findutils-locate package.


Recent versions of findutils may not contain locate. Try:

yast2 -i findutils-locate
