    Have you rebuilt your kernel since you compiled/installed the module?

    hey, Im the new system admin for one of the servers on campus, apparently quota support is built into the kernel (2.4.26) (and it's in the config file...) but when the system is rebooted the quota doesnt turn on

    I've got the usrquota entry in fstab in the right place, edquota works (the aquota.user file exists and was made by quotacheck), repquota works, but when i go to turn the quota on manually gives me this error

    root@xx:/# quotaon /home
    quotaon: using /home/aquota.user on /dev/sda3 [/home]: No such process
    quotaon: Quota format not supported in kernel.

    more troubleshooting led me to try doing a modprobe quota_v2; says not found... i have no idea wtf is going on... lol

    the current sys admin says that quota support is built-in and i can see that but then wtf wont it work

    Code:
    /usr/src/linux-2.4.26/fs/quota_v2.c
    /lib/modules/2.4.26/kernel/fs/quota_v2.o.gz
    /backup/slackware-10.0/lib/modules/2.4.26/kernel/fs/quota_v2.o.gz
    /backup/slackware-10.0/usr/src/linux-2.4.26/fs/quota_v2.c
    /tmp2/lib/modules/2.4.26/kernel/fs/quota_v2.o.gz
    /tmp2/usr/src/linux-2.4.26/fs/quota_v2.c
    but 2.4.26 is the older kernel, the current kernel is 2.4.26so

    thanks for you help

    You have to recompile against your new kernel
