Description Petri T. Koistinen 2002-10-23 05:45:02 EDT
From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/4.0 (compatible; MSIE 5.5; Windows NT 4.0)

Description of problem:
I see this when booting:

Enabling local filesystem quotas:       [ OK ]
getgrnam failed for C5

(bugzilla will strip 8-bit characters so that C5 is one o-letter with ~ (tilde) 
on top of it.)

What does this mean? We had just new kernel with quota support for 32-bit 
UID's, is this releated to that?

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

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. reboot

Actual Results:  Weird message on screen.

Expected Results:  No weird messages on screen.

Additional info:

$ rpm -q kernel quota

   This message is in almost all of my servers across a network. We 
were recently hacked and have seen a number of hd's corrupt since 
(all with this message in boot) - could it be related to a virus of 
some sort?
