    I was not sure if I should post in the other persons thread or not.


    I am having issues with quotas on page 4.

    When I did this yum install quota, I got:

    Code:
    [root@server1 ~]# yum install quota
    Loading "installonlyn" plugin
    Setting up Install Process
    Parsing package install arguments
    Nothing to do
    
    So I continued on fine until I got to quotacheck -avugm

    I got an error about something being truncated. I apologize, but I restarted thinking that the system had become unstable, because I was no longer able to type anything in and I could not open another Terminal screen.

    I want to run though the quota setup again, but I am now getting Permission Denied errors. I assume it did setup? How can I uninstall quotas so I can start over?

    Fedora 7 x64

    Thank you.

    I think you did right to create a new thread. I only posted in the other persons thread as I believe my problem was intrinsically related.

    Anyway, that yum message generally means that the software is already installed on your system. You can verify it by using:
    Code:
    yum info quota
    
    To remove a software and its dependencies, you can can use:
    Code:
    yum remove quota
    
    Hope that helps dude......
