    This should be supported in the next version of webmin.
    If you want to try it out now, you can get a pre-release
    from http://www.webmin.com/webmin/devel.html
    I haven't fully tested XFS quotas support, so I would be
    interested to know if you have any problems with it when
    using the development release.

    Thanks for the information; I downloaded and installed this
    version of Webmin, and I attempted to use it on my
    Linux/XFS file system. However, under status, I see this:

    "User and Group Quotas Inactive"

    This seems quite contrary to what I see upon bootup:

    XFS mounting filesystem ide0(3,5)
    XFS quotacheck ide0(3,5): Please wait.
    XFS quotacheck ide0(3,5): Done.

    Also, I have a quota.user and a quota.group file on the
    partition, although I have read that it's not necessary.
    When I try to enable quotas, I receive this message:

    Failed to turn on quotas : Enable XFS user quota during

    My fstab file has usrquota and grpquota specified as
    options for the aforementioned partition. I will be more
    than happy to provide more information as necessary, and
    I'll gladly test any fixes that you may develop. I would
    try and do so myself, but I am rather low on time right
    now. :-) Thanks for Webmin!

    Damn .. I never got XFS quotas working properly on
    my own system, so I was unable to properly test this.
    Instead, try out the attached updated quotas module
    which assumes that quotas are always activated if they
    are in /etc/fstab.
