quota question.

Post by Partha Sr » Sun, 28 Feb 1999 04:00:00

Hi all:

I know that this has been addressed before, but I was not able to find
the resolution in the list. I am having problems setting up quota on  my
RH5.2, kernel 2.2.1 system. I get the following error msg:

bash: ulimit: cannot modify limit: Operation not permitted

Any help is appreciated.

>bash: ulimit: cannot modify limit: Operation not permitted
