I'm following http://www.tldp.org/HOWTO/mini/Quota.html
1 - Patch kernel
Hmmm.... the ftp site doesn't work now, and when it did,
it didn't have patches for 2.4.19, which is what I'm using.
2.4.19 has CONFIG_QUOTA though so I'll use that.
2 - Get Quota-tools
quota tools 3.06 downloads and installs fine! woo-hoo!
(Except the /sbin directory is hard-coded. tsk, tsk. had to
edit the Makefile :)
3 - Modify init scripts
OK, found mount -a command in rc.sysinit, moved a couple of
lines down, pasted code from docs. quoatcheck -avug and quotaon -avug. done
4 - reboot for changes to take effect
OK, though it didn't work :)
5 - use edquota to edit the quota
doesn't work :(
I think something's missing here, because quotacheck -avug says:
# quotacheck -avug
Cannot get exact used space... Results might be inaccurate.
quotacheck: Cannot get quotafile name for /dev/sdb1
and quotaon -avug :
# quotaon -avug
quotaon: Cannot find quota file on /data2 [/dev/sdb1] to turn quotas on/off.
strace shows that they're looking for files in the partition, but
those files don't exist. They definitely don't exist, but I have
no idea where they're supposed to come from. I'm sure that
I'm missing something simple, but I can't figure it out :(
The site was not working due to floods... Now it works and also contains patches against 2.4.19. Your problems are caused by a bug in quotacheck (in 3.06 you have to use -c option to create new files). In new release this should be fixed. Thanks for report. Honza
