updatedb not indexing files on ntfs drive
my machine has windows and slackware 13.1 installed. While starting slackware i mount the win D drive (using an entry in fstab).Recently i ran an updatedb but I cannot locate any file on the ntfs drives though they were mounted when i ran this command. Only file on my ext3 partition are located. Can anyone suggest a way out?

What is the mountpoint for your ntfs filesystem?
If you look in /etc/updatedb.conf, there is a list of paths which are excluded from indexing. If your mountpoint is in /media or /mnt for example, it probably won't be indexed by default.
My updatedb.conf for example is
# directories to exclude from the slocate database: PRUNEPATHS="/media /mnt /tmp /var/tmp /var/cache /var/lock /var/run /var/spool" # filesystems to exclude from the slocate database: PRUNEFS="afs auto autofs binfmt_misc cifs coda configfs cramfs debugfs devpts ftpfs iso9660 mqueue ncpfs nfs nfs4 proc ramfs securityfs shfs smbfs sshfs sysfs tmpfs udf usbfs"
