From a look in the source rpm from Wolverine for nfs-utils-0.3.1, in the
file utils/rquotad/README.okir, it is evident that the version of
rpc.rquotad which this code builds will not work with the Wolverine kernel
version of quota (i.e. the 2.4.X-acX version of the kernel, which contains
Jan Kara's rewrite of Linux quota).
There is now a new version (3.01) of the quota tools at:
and also at:
that will work for either kernel version of quota, and also for XFS quota.
The version of rpc.rquotad there will work for either kernel version and
also for XFS filesystems.
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Run quota(8) on a box with a NFS mounted file system, where the NFS
filesystem is mounted from a machine running Wolverine, and with quota
enabled on that filesystem;
2. The rpc.rquotad on the server machine will interact badly with the
Wolverine version of the kernel + quota, and no result RPC will be sent
back to quota(8) and the NFS mount will be ignored by quota(8).
We (Red Hat) really need to try to fix this before next release.
I'm on it.
Nathan: we will stay at quota 3.00 for release, but include the rquotad that
it includes. We will not move to 3.01 yet for the reasons I outlined in a
mail I just sent you and the other quota developers.
