NAME
weekly.conf -- weekly maintenance configuration file
DESCRIPTION
The weekly.conf file specifies which of the standard /etc/weekly services are performed. The /etc/weekly script is run, by default, every Saturday morning on a NetBSD system. The variables described below can be set to ``YES'' or ``NO'' in the /etc/weekly.conf file. The default settings are in the /etc/defaults/weekly.conf file. (Note that you should never edit /etc/defaults/weekly.conf directly, as it is often replaced during system upgrades.) rebuild_locatedb This rebuilds the locate database, /var/db/locate.database, which must also exist, in order to be rebuilt. rebuild_whatisdb This rebuilds the whatis database(s). Note that NetBSD provides a default whatis.db for the system manual pages and this may not be needed. (Adjust your /etc/man.conf as necessary. See man.conf(5) for details.)
