Description of problem:
When running checkquota it dosen't seem to be doing anything. It will not
pick up current disk usage from users from before quota's where enabled.
Steps to Reproduce:
1. added usrquota,grpquota to /etc/fstab for /
2. touched /quota.user and /quota.group
3. ran convertquota to convert to aquota.x files
4. ran checkquota -uvF /
5. quotaon -ua and quotaon -ga
Actual Results: checkquota didn't update the aquota.x files. Did a
repquota -augv and it said a user that had over 20 megs of files on the
system was using 0Kb.
Expected Results: Should have reported the user to be using 20 megs on
I tried this on two different machines with fresh installs of 7.1 and both
had this problem. I also re-compiled the source RPM and it did the same
Would you like to beta test some new quota RPMs? They are available at:
I would appreciate your feedback on this package.
I installed your beta quota rpm and now it seems to be working. I did have to
force install the rpm because of a file conflict with glibc-devel.. I will let
you know if I find any other issues, for right now it seems to be working!
I also tried the new quota rpm package, it tried to use quota.user instead aquota.user ?
I deleted all my 'old' aquota.user files , upgraded the RPM packages and made quota.user files and did the usual edquota on my users.
It seems to work allright, back to quota.user files i guess.
Repquota is working again and updating again with the right quotas.
I am using the aquota.user files. I am NOT using the old quota.user files. I
did exactly like you are sposed to do and did the convertquota command. I
don't know how you can be using the quota.x files, I thought it was a kernel
issue that changed it to aquota.x not the quota package. But whatever the case
I am using the aquota.x files, the old style have been deleted.
My machine was a Red Hat 7.0 install, upgraded to 7.1. I converted my quota files to aquota.user files then. Now i upgraded to this beta RPM
and repquota refused to work cause it was looking for quota.user files (convertquota was to no use ofcourse). I deleted my aquota and did a touch
/home/quota.user . Then i manually rebuild my user quotas.
