Description etltkki 1999-03-16 15:02:19 UTC
rc.sysinit calls quotacheck with parameters "-v /" for
root filesystem and "-v -R -a" for other filesystems.
quotacheck invoked this way will not update quota.group
files. In case of root filesystem quotacheck is also invoked
on read-only filesystem and doesn't have a chance to write
to quota.user anyway (this has already been reported as #703
and was supposed to be fixed in initscripts 3.83 but
initscripts in RawHide distribution, ver 3.92-2 still
contains this bug).

Comment 1 Bill Nottingham 1999-03-19 23:31:59 UTC
quotacheck is supposed to run on the raw device, not on
the mounted filesystem.

Comment 2 etltkki 1999-03-22 11:50:59 UTC
That's OK, but it still doesn't update quota.group file at least for
root filesystem.

Comment 3 Jeff Johnson 1999-04-17 17:51:59 UTC
Fixed in initscripts-4.10.
