    Falko! YOu are much needed!

    Ok I am having such a hard time. I am not even sure if I have done every step right so far, but none the least I am on the MYSQL step.
    When I paste the command, it tells me to place disk 2 in /dev/hdb, however my cdrom drive is /dev/hdc. so I am not able to install packages. What to do? I have made it this far, hate to quit now.:)

    :eek: OK It is this step I am having trouble with. --> touch /aquota.user /
    chmod 600 /aquota.*
    mount -o remount /
    quotacheck -avugm
    quotaon -avug

    No permissions, says that it could damage a file, please turn quotas off?
    quota for users is mountpoint so it may damage a file?????
    syntax error??

    I so missed something

    I tried doing the step before and I got the message "Already installed"?

    :confused: HELP!!!

    [root@server1 admin]# urpmi quota
    The package(s) are already installed
    [root@server1 admin]# touch /aquota.user /
    touch: cannot touch `/aquota.user': Permission denied
    touch: cannot touch `/': Permission denied
    [root@server1 admin]# chmod 600 /aquota.*
    chmod: changing permissions of `/': Operation not permitted
    chmod: changing permissions of `/aquota.user': Operation not permitted
    [root@server1 admin]# mount -o remount /
    [root@server1 admin]# quotacheck -avugm
    quotacheck: Quota for users is enabled on mountpoint / so quotacheck might damage the file.
    Please turn quotas off or use -f to force checking.
    [root@server1 admin]# quotaon -avug
    quotaon: using // on /dev/hda6 [/]: Device or resource busy
    quotaon: using //aquota.user on /dev/hda6 [/]: Device or resource busy
    [root@server1 admin]#

    It seems you logged in as admin, not as root. You must login as root to do these steps.
