Description Scott Martin 2001-04-23 19:34:33 UTC
From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/4.0 (compatible; MSIE 5.5; Windows 98)

When setting up the default Disk Quota configuration, the fields appear to 
set up the opposite item to which they are assigned. I.E. If you change 
the "Disk Space" limit then the "Files" limit is actually changed and vice 

Reproducible: Always
Steps to Reproduce:
1.Enable Quotas on a file system and configure default quotas.
2.Set up a Disk Space Soft Limit and a Disk Space Hard Limit
3.Activate the changes and exit Linuxconf
4.Execute "quota -u (username)" for a user who has space allocated in the 
above defined file system.

Actual Results:  Although it appeared that we configured a "Disk Space" 
limit in the above example, when we executed the "quota -u (username)" 
command, we find that we actually configured the "File" limits instead.

Expected Results:  When we configured the "Disk Space" limits, it should 
be verified that we indeed configured the "Disk Space" limits when we 
execute the "quota -u (username)" command. Instead we find that we have 
configured the opposite parameter.

Closing because we don't ship linuxconf anymore

Changed to 'CLOSED' state since 'RESOLVED' has been deprecated.
