Question Setting up disk quotas


When I run quotacheck to create aquota.user in the /home directory I get the following message:
[root@frodo ~]# quotacheck -vc /home
quotacheck: Your kernel probably supports journaled quota but you are not using it. Consider switching to journaled quota to avoid running quotacheck after an unclean shutdown.
quotacheck: Cannot remount filesystem mounted on /home read-only so counted values might not be right.
Please stop all programs writing to filesystem or use -m flag to force checking.

my fstab is:
[root@frodo ~]# cat /etc/fstab

#
# /etc/fstab
# Created by anaconda on Sat Nov 21 07:06:47 2009
#
# Accessible filesystems, by reference, are maintained under '/dev/disk'
# See man pages fstab(5), findfs(8), mount(8) and/or vol_id(8) for more info
#
UUID=7c6145e4-a87e-4f90-8d89-4c0b920ae137 / ext3 defaults 1 1
/dev/sda3 /home ext3 defaults,usrquota 0 0
UUID=6b6479c6-3ab6-42f6-ac11-2d80bee57456 /boot ext3 defaults 1 2
tmpfs /dev/shm tmpfs defaults 0 0

proc /proc proc defaults 0 0
UUID=933ab3f3-bb82-402c-9189-492a85a981df swap swap defaults 0 0


I have the following partitions on my drive:
[root@frodo ~]# fdisk -l

Disk /dev/sda: 160.0 GB, 160041885696 bytes
255 heads, 63 sectors/track, 19457 cylinders
Units = cylinders of 16065 * 512 = 8225280 bytes
Disk identifier: 0x20b6c1b6

Device Boot Start End Blocks Id System
/dev/sda1 26 2550 20282062+ 83 Linux
/dev/sda2 * 2551 2575 200812+ 83 Linux
/dev/sda3 2576 5176 20892532+ 83 Linux
/dev/sda4 5177 19457 114712132+ 5 Extended
/dev/sda5 5177 5420 1959898+ 82 Linux swap / Solaris

I'm not sure if the problem lies with the way I partitioned my hard drive or how I edited fstab. Can someone help me with this?

Thanks,
Ron

try adding an -m to your quotacheck command
