    Hi,
    I've been having issues with "Quota" in every single install I've done (Ubuntu, CentOS, and SuSE) I am using CentOS for now. I do everything and everything seems to go correctly up to step 8 of the tutorial:

    I install quota with:

    yum install quota

    Afterwords:

    vi /etc/fstab

    /dev/VolGroup00/LogVol00 / ext3 defaults,usrquota,grpquota 1 1
    LABEL=/boot /boot ext3 defaults 1 2
    tmpfs /dev/shm tmpfs defaults 0 0
    devpts /dev/pts devpts gid=5,mode=620 0 0
    sysfs /sys sysfs defaults 0 0
    proc /proc proc defaults 0 0
    /dev/VolGroup00/LogVol01 swap swap defaults 0 0

    I input "usrquota" and "grpquota" as mentioned in the tutorial and above, but this is where the problems begin:

    touch /aquota.user /aquota.group

    There is no visible output so I'm guessing it didn't work, but I continued:

    chmod 600 /aquota.*

    Still no output:

    mount -o remount /

    No output...
    quotacheck -avugm

    Now, it returns something like "processing" (sorry I dont know the exact message). It didnt finish within an hour so I just left it running all night but when I came back it still hasnt finished so I just scrapped it and came here. If you could help that would be amazing!

    Thanks,
    PJ

    No output is ok for all these commands. It means there was no error.

    Can you reboot and post the output of
    Code:
    repquota -avug
    ?
