Description Bevis King 2001-08-20 06:50:56 EDT
From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/4.72 [en] (X11; U; Linux 2.4.2 i686)

Description of problem:
I have a file system called /vol/yakut/video - the quotaon command seems to
barf on this pathname but is ok with toplevel ones during the startup
scripts.  Other pathnames (all mounted at / level) seem to work fine, it's
just this one which is mounted three levels down the tree which it barfs

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
Give a filesystem a name with a mount point several levels down.  The
filesystem was made with this label, and the LABEL=/vol/yakut/video is used
within the /etc/fstab with no problems for anything other than the quotaon

Actual Results:  It barfed when called from the rc script.  Life continued.

Expected Results:  Not barfing!  Accepting longer, sub-root level mount
points within filesystem labels.

We (Red Hat) should really try to fix this before next release.
Comment 2 Bevis King 2001-08-21 05:08:15 EDT
I noticed while shutting down the machine last night that quotaoff makes exactly
the same error report.  Not a surprise really....
Comment 3 Preston Brown 2001-08-30 14:10:35 EDT
fixed in 3.01pre9-1 and later.
