Hi, I have Centos 5.5 linux with quota enabled in fstab

[root@drone3 ~]# mount | grep usrquota

/dev/sda4 on /test type ext4 (rw,noatime,nodiratime,usrquota)

When I tray to activate quota on the /test I hit the following messages :

[root@drone3 ~]# quotacheck -cu /test

quotacheck: Mountpoint (or device) /test not found.

quotacheck: Can't find filesystem to check or filesystem not mounted with quota option.

[root@tungsten ~]# uname -a
Linux xxx.xxxx.xxxx 2.6.18-164.15.1.el5 #1 SMP Wed Mar 17 11:30:06 EDT 2010 x86_64 x86_64 x86_64 GNU/Linux

Hi Justin,

In fact, there's a bug with quota package on CentOS 5.3 +.

See here :

Get the patch from RedHat in order to fix your problem.

Cheers,
P
