I am a Linux newbie running Fedora core 11 and having difficulties getting quota to work. Here's what I have done so far: I do : Code: yum install quota Installs quota fine. Then I edit fstab : Then run : Code: touch /aquota.user /aquota.group chmod 600 /aquota.* mount -o remount / quotacheck -avugm quotaon -avug The aquota.user and aquota.group files get created. File system mounts ok. However when I run quotacheck -avugm I get the following messages : When I run quotaon -avug I get the following messages : Then I reboot the system. Nothing is written to aquota.user or aquota.group. And I still get the error messages as above. To me it seems that there may be a problem with permissions on / file system but i'm not sure what they should be. Where am I going wrong? Any ideas / advice would be greatly appreciated. Thanks!
