32 Bit UIDs and ext2/3

  • Martin Brennfleck

    The quota support for big UIDs does not seem to work
    expect for quotacheck. I compiled  version 3.07  with
    EXT2_DIRECT support (and setquota -V gives me
    the right thing).
    ./setquota 100000 2 2 2 2 /dev/sdb1 gives following

    setquota: Error while getting quota from /dev/sdb1 for 100000: Invalid argument
    strace shows the following problem:

    quotactl(Q_GETQUOTA|USRQUOTA, "/dev/sdb1", 100000, {0, 0, 0, 1152350, 134565152, 100000, 3221224204, 0}) = -1 EINVAL (Invalid argument)

    Any ideas?

      what kernel do you use? There was a bug in older versions of kernel which prevented tools from functioning... Update to newer kernel and everything should start working.
