Running SuSE 8.0, and webmin 0.980. The partition on the
machine is a reiserfs partition, and I have enabled quota
on it. It works fine on the command line, but I can't use the
Disk Quota module in Webmin, it tells me that :

"No local filesystems can support quotas."

In the help files I read that
"The Linux operating system does not allow quotas to be
turned on unless the filesystem has the Use Quotas
option set in the Disks and Filesystems module. If none of
your filesystems have this option set then none will be
listed on the main page."

I checked the Disks and Filesystems module and there is
no option called "Use Quotas" for my partition, so it seems
that Webmin doesn't support ReiserFS with quota.

Is this right, if so do you know when / if this will be added.

    Right now, webmin expects to see the usrquota or grpquota
    options
    in /etc/fstab for the filesystem in order to be able to edit
    quotas on it.
    However, it sounds like reiserfs quotas don't work that way,
    so webmin
    will have problems.

    Because only suse 8.0 supports this at the moment, I haven't
    actually
    tested it yet ..

    OK, now it works.

    I added the options usrquota and grpquota in the /etc/fstab fil
    manualy, and now I can get information in the Disk Quotas
    module.

    Thank you for the tip.
