Well, there are actually several libslangs in ciao 3.4:

linux> find . -name "*"

I was careful to link isis against the ots/slang/lib slang.

Sorry about the bad wrapping, but yes, it is linked against

It still fails in the same way.

So, locate has to be run on the server and these files appear as 
/data/soft3/... (ie nfs mounted filesystem) on the clients. The locate 
database does not index files from nfs filesystems which is why I have 
to run it on the server and it drops the /data from the front of the 
path because it finds the on the real filesystem.

I guess it seems to have the and in the ots/slang tree 
which is where the is, so I'm not sure why its not 
being picked up. Maybe there is an environment variable I can set to 
force it to look there.
