well because i didn't find anything about reiser fs quota i used ext2 rather , but with a partition which is > 32 Go , this cause troubles while trying to initialise the quota ( quotaqueck -u /var)
i got this
Cannot get exact used space... Results might be inaccurate.
quotacheck: Cannot remount filesystem mounted on /var read-only so counted values might not be right.
Please stop all programs writing to filesystem or use -m flag to force checking.
then when trying to turn the quota on with : quotaon -avu /dev/hda3 i got :

quotaon: using /var/quota.group on /dev/hda3 [/var]: Invalid argument
quotaon: Maybe create new quota files with quotacheck(8)?
quotaon: using /var/quota.user on /dev/hda3 [/var]: Invalid argument
quotaon: Maybe create new quota files with quotacheck(8)?

this after i created quota.user and quota.group in the root of var dir !
is it due to the 32GB limitation ? i have a 35GB partition
thanx for any reply !
