updatedb should omit /mnt from its scanlist by default

Bug #74029 reported by Andrew Evers on 2006-12-01
Affects Status Importance Assigned to Milestone
slocate (Ubuntu)

Bug Description

Binary package hint: slocate

When running ubuntu on vmware, using VMWare's "Shared Folders" feature, the shared folders are mounted under /mnt/hgfs. However, entry is visible in the mount table.

When updatedb runs with the defaults, and scans /mnt/hgfs the guest CPU is totally taken up by vmware-guestd, and both the host and guest are very, very slow, since vmware-guestd is not particuarly efficient.

I would suggest adding at least /mnt/hgfs to the default exclusion list, perhaps even /mnt (/media is there already).
