Question FreeBSD Quota Setup!


I have followed the instructions on combined with to build a kernel with quotas. I thought i had enabled it as i added
options QUOTAS
to the very end of my GENERIC config file. I then issued:

# /usr/sbin/config MYKERNEL

# cd ../../compile/MYKERNEL

# make depend

# make

# make install
I think rebooted but when i run `quotaon` it throws an error and when i try other quota commands it says that the kernel doesnt have quotas configured into it.

Any idea what i did wrong?

Thanks in Advance,

Did you read the handbook section on configuring a kernel?

You really should be building your kernel the "new way" It sounds like you built the kernel, but it didn't install properly.

i read the hand book, hence why i said i used that link in my original post . I have tried using the "new" way but it just says "make doesnt know how to buildkernel" or something along those lines. I checked that kernel.old was made in /boot and it was, were is wasnt before.

Any idea why method 2 might not be working?
