Description Zoltan Arpadffy 2000-08-30 15:35:25 EDT

Im running quota-2.00pre3-2 on 2.2.16-3 and there is a very strange 
behaviour. If Im creating user with useradd the default quotas does not 
apply to new user. It does not have quota even after quotacheck u a 
command but after running linuxconf and accepting again default quotas, 
everything will be ok. Is it a quota problem or Im not enough prepared to 
run quota, anyhow I havent seen anything about it in the documentation.

... actually I fixed my problem by executing: edquota -p reference_username 
new_username, but the default quota shold not be "default" ??
Comment 2 Preston Brown 2001-02-01 18:41:04 EST
there is no such thing as a "default" quota amount.  Quotas must be set

Must be a linuxconf bug. :)
Comment 3 Brent Fox 2002-06-05 12:16:08 EDT
Closing because we don't ship linuxconf anymore
