Default quotaon: Quota format not supported in kernel.

Hello,

I'm trying to install Quota my XEN VPS running Debian Etch.

When I run "quotaon -avug" as described in "The perfect server" guide I get following error:

Code:
quotaon: using //quota.group on /dev/sda1 [/]: No such process
quotaon: Quota format not supported in kernel.
quotaon: using //quota.user on /dev/sda1 [/]: No such process
quotaon: Quota format not supported in kernel.
By searching this site I found another thread which covers the same issue:

http://www.howtoforge.com/forums/showthread.php?t=233

Trying to solve this issue I've tried following

Code:
modprobe quota_v1
modprobe quota_v2
and adding quota_v1 + quota_v2 to /etc/modules.

It doesn't work at all. My VPS provider suggest that running following might work:

Code:
apt-get install mod-init-tools
with following error:

Code:
E: Couldn't find package mod-init-tools
Which repository provides the mod-init-tools package?

Otherwise I have to compile a new kernel. I have no experience doing that and I have no configuration file in /boot. So I guess that compiling a new kernel wouldn't be an easy task for a novice.

Please try
Code:
touch /aquota.user /aquota.group
chmod 600 /aquota.*
instead of
Code:
touch /quota.user /quota.group
chmod 600 /quota.*

Does this mean that quota is running properly?

Free to ask what the "a" does for quota?

Code:
srv:~# touch /aquota.user /aquota.group
srv:~# chmod 600 /aquota.*
srv:~# mount -o remount /
srv:~# quotacheck -avugm
quotacheck: WARNING -  Quotafile //aquota.user was probably truncated. Cannot save quota settings...
quotacheck: WARNING -  Quotafile //aquota.group was probably truncated. Cannot save quota settings...
quotacheck: Scanning /dev/sda1 [/] done
quotacheck: Checked 1524 directories and 16552 files
srv:~# quotaon -avug
/dev/sda1 [/]: group quotas turned on
/dev/sda1 [/]: user quotas turned on

Yes, those first time warning messages are OK...

aquota is used on Redhat like systems
quota is used on Debian like systems
there is no difference in function, just different syntax.. you can try "repquota -a" command to see actual quotas on your system
