Interesting. The handbook section on quotas http://www.freebsd.org/doc/en_US.ISO8859-1/books/handbook/quotas.htmllooks quite different to this article. If you think it's useless, you must have some suggestions as to how it can be improved. How about helping instead of complaining?

Agreed. I used this howto to (sucessfully) set up quotas on my system. I see nothing wrong with it, and it has been working quite well on my FreeBSD 4.3-RELEASE box for the past few months. In fact, I was having difficulty figuring out how to set up quotas via the handbook and this was the first place I checked. If you have any additional comments you would like to give to me about what I should do instead, please do so. Otherwise, I'd say read the tutorial a bit more thoroughly next time :).

Rewritting the Handbook isn't a bad idea. Short of that, I found this article to be quite informative and useful. Something the Handbook lacks.

I found this HowTo to be incomplete. The referenced section of the FreeBSD Handbook did not specify anything about quota configuration. Nor did the HowTo provide an example format of the configuration. The section of the FreeBSD Handbook did provide this information.

Furthermore, comments about the HowTo being plagurised from the FreeBSD Handbook are justified. I found this HowTo to be an incomplete and redundant subset of a more useful source. I shall not be accessing FreeBSDDiary.Org again.

Funny.

Besides the fact that this HOWTO worked...
(thanks for this one)

what logic is there in thinking one HOWTO sucks and
therefor never visit FreeBSDDiary,org again ?!?!

Oh well...

well, it works. (on freebsd 4.9)

so working stuff == sucks?
not working stuff == rox?

interesting logic you have there, my friend.
next time, stop being childish and flame something useful without even trying it out.
