Description Speedy 2001-09-09 22:56:38 UTC
From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US; rv:0.9.2)
Gecko/20010726 Netscape6/6.1

Description of problem:
'quotaon' seems not to use the quota version2, because it looks for the
files 'quota.*' and the other tools converted them to 'aquota.*'.
The update from update.redhat.com does NOT correct this
'repquota -ua' writes some values, but quits with a segfault and seems not
to be up-to-date because deleting some files doesn't take affect to the
repquota-list. (perhaps because quota doesn't work at all?)

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

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1.delete aquota.* and quota.*
2.remake the files using quotacheck /dev/... (this creates the aquota.* file)
3.quotaon /dev/... shows up with an error-message that it cannot find
the quota.* files
4. repquota -ua segfaults

Actual Results:  quotas do not work, not quota, nor quotacheck, nor
repquota (segfault)

Expected Results:  :-) everything should go just fine :-)

Additional info:

Severity is HIGH because, with no quotas installed, I must not go online
with this machine...
