Description Martin Høy 2001-06-11 06:48:06 EDT
From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux 2.4.5-win4lin i686; en-US; rv:0.9.1)

How reproducible:

There are several things that do not work as expected:

1) The program quotacheck hangs if there are named pipes in the
   filesystem. It's probably trying to read from them or something.

2) The command quota does not work for ordinary users (permission
   denied, even for the same user). When run as root, it displays
   nothing (empty fields). repquota works as expected.

3) The amount of used blocks/inodes is not updated automatically (when
   adding or removing files). It is only updated when another
   quotacheck is run.
Comment 1 Martin Høy 2001-06-11 10:34:59 EDT
I emailed the maintainer Jan Kara. With patches for the 2.4.5 kernel and new tools
from sourceforge (version 3.01-pre7), all the above issues are solved.

3.01-pre7 now available via rawhide, and will shortly be released as official errata.
