Description Eric Sandeen 2008-10-29 21:57:29 EDT
quota-tools currently only recognizes the "ext4dev" fileystem type; it's a trivial change to support ext4 as well, patch at:


Comment 1 Ondrej Vasik 2008-10-30 02:09:20 EDT
Thanks for report and detailed informations. I don't see that patch reported upstream, so will do that ... and of course will include it to Fedora - as it looks ok and helpful.
Comment 2 Ondrej Vasik 2008-10-30 07:27:33 EDT
Built as quota-3.16-6.fc10, dist-f10-updates-candidate, closing RAWHIDE ... do you think that it does make sense to get it to f10-final? Or F10-update after release should be enough and ok?
Comment 3 Eric Sandeen 2008-10-31 12:52:33 EDT
Thanks for the quick resolution!

I'll leave it up to you on F10.

I've not gotten any bug reports from ext4 users in rawhide/F10 so it's probably not terribly pressing; on the other hand it's a simple change.

Can you build this patched version for F9 too? I'm using F9, 2.6.27-5 testing kernel, and ext4 (not "ext4dev") filesystems. The current package for F9 (quota-3.15-7.fc9) doesn't work...

Comment 5 Eric Sandeen 2008-11-09 09:47:54 EST
Just a note if you are testing quota, there are further pending kernel-side changes for proper delalloc+quota support... see the linux-ext4 list for details.

Comment 6 Ondrej Vasik 2008-11-10 02:58:10 EST
Ok, will do update for F9 as well...
Comment 7 Fedora Update System 2008-11-10 07:36:25 EST
