Unable to use 'locate' to locate files mlocate.db permission denied
I'm using Hardy on a 1000h. When I'm trying to locate a file using locate I receive
$ locate gdm
locate: can not open `/var/lib/
I listed /var/lib/locate and mlocate.db seems to be owned by root and group mlocate
$ ls -al /var/lib/mlocate
drwxr-xr-x 2 root root 4096 2008-10-11 00:33 .
drwxr-xr-x 51 root root 4096 2008-10-06 21:01 ..
-rw-r----- 1 root mlocate 3266135 2008-10-11 00:33 mlocate.db
