Bug#273074: install: xfs with fstab options usrquota and/or grpquota mounts in read-only, system boots not/not good.
Hit the same bug yesterday.
Debian 3.1 r1a, bought on DVDs. Pentium 4 2.40GHz,
1Gb RAM, ST Lab A162 PCI ATA 133 IDE controller,
two Seagate Barracuda ST3250823A 250 Gb HDDs.
Attempts to enable any kind of quotas for XFS mounted
as the root file system resulted in it being mounted ro.
Passing the kernel the parameter
eliminated the problem.
Solution found here:
Is it "stable" as in "woody" or "stable" as in "sarge"?
