Welcome to the Linux Foundation Forum!

locate should be mlocate?

It seems locate is not on my centos7 server but some research shows it was replaced by mlocate a long time ago. If this is correct the course should probably mention it. yum search locate results in finding mlocate only.

    rpm -qil mlocate will show you locate (and updatedb) are part of mlocate. The name of the package is irrelevant. yum list *locate* would have shown you right away.

    Next time you post something, as requested before, please mention what section of the course you are referring to as I have no idea based on your comment, which makes it very hard to answer specifics
  • ok, sorry, I forgot I was reviewing material from the 101 course.

    Please post in the edX forums for that, it doesn't belong here and there are plenty of people to help there
