BackupPC and updatedb

An important thing to remember is when using BackupPC is to configure updatedb to skip the BackupPC pool hierarchy.

This usually means adding /var/lib/backuppc (check the config.pl of your BackupPC installation for $Conf{TopDir} in case you're not sure about this path) to the PRUNEPATHS variable in updatedb.conf.

Whoa, first blog post in like forever.
