WEEKLY.CONF(5)            NetBSD File Formats Manual            WEEKLY.CONF(5)

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.)
