Hello. I am having trouble getting quota to turn on for a FC 2 virtual linux server (UML on a dedicated server offered by a hosting company)
I have attempted to turn quotas on using the standard Webmin package that comes with FC 2 via apt4rpm, and I have tried configuring it all on the command line but I keep getting errors.
Since this is a virtual server, I only have one partition, the / partition, and that is where I want to turn my quota's on. I edited /etc/fstab to include usrquota and grpquota on the appropriate lines.
I don't have access to the kernel since it is a UML install, but the support people at the company say CONFIG_QUOTA is on (so that means only quota_v1 and not quota_v2).
I made the quota.user and quota.group files using quota check, and those seem to come out fine with no problem (quotacheck -vugm -F vfsold /)
The problem arises when I go to turn quotas on:
Using the command line: quotaon -ug -F vfsold /
I get the following error: quotaon: using //quota.group on /dev/ubd0 [/]: Invalid argument
quotaon: Maybe create new quota files with quotacheck(8)?
And using Webmin: Failed to turn on quotas : quotaon: using //aquota.user on /dev/ubd0 [/]: No such process quotaon: Quota format not supported in kernel.
Two different errors while tryign to do the same thing.
And I still can't get quota's turned on.
What am I doing wrong? Or, how I am getting this error?
