DISABLE SCROLLKEEPER on ubuntu - is good for updates at least on systems with slow hard drives like everex

ScrollKeeper is a cataloging system for documentation on open systems. Hardly anyone ever uses it and 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
