Description Need Real Name 2003-01-31 04:10:44 EST
Description of problem:
The conditional expression beginning at line 302 of /etc/rc.d/rc.sysinit has a
middle expression ("$_ROOT_HAS_QUOTA") that will always test true, no matter
what the return code is of the preceding grep|awk|grep pipeline. This is because
"$_ROOT_HAS_QUOTA" will always be a non-null string.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
initscripts-6.67-1

How reproducible:
N/A

Steps to Reproduce:
1.
2.
3.
    
Actual results:
"$_ROOT_HAS_QUOTA" always tests true.

Expected results:
"$_ROOT_HAS_QUOTA" only tests true if the quota option is given for the root
filesystem in /etc/fstab.

Additional info:
Suggest that the test is altered to:

... -a "$_ROOT_HAS_QUOTA" = "0" ...
