Guys, can anybody confirm this?

I am running PE4400 smp latest 2.4.31-9 kernel.

I sent a question to quota developers about my quota problems, below is
what I got back.

  Of course it should be autoupdated..

  Do you have an SMP kernel? In that case you should try a newer kernel
  (but you'll need either -ac version of kernel or quota patches from

Does anybody knows what -ac version of a kernel is?

Thank you.
