DISABLE SCROLLKEEPER on any linux system (cloudbook in my case)

tip via https://help.ubuntu.com/community/AspireOne

ScrollKeeper is a cataloging system for documentation on open systems. Hardly anyone ever uses it and on the AAO's slow SSD it takes ages every time you install anything. Disable it and your installs will fly! Finally add a diversion to stop dpkg from overwriting your changes.

sudo mv /usr/bin/scrollkeeper-update /usr/bin/scrollkeeper-update.real
sudo ln -s /bin/true /usr/bin/scrollkeeper-update
sudo find /var/lib/scrollkeeper/ -name \*.xml -type f -exec rm -f '{}' \;
sudo dpkg-divert --local --divert /usr/bin/scrollkeeper-update.real --add /usr/bin/scrollkeeper-update
