Description Nicholas Allen 2004-12-06 11:11:43 UTC
Description of problem: When I mounted an IRiver mp3 player, which had Korean file names for some of the files on it, the kernel would hang when trying to view those directories that contained files with Korean names. There was no problem to list directories which had standard ASCII file names though. Usually the ls command would segfault and then retrying would cause the kernel to hang. It was then not possible to unmount the IRiver player and the only option was to reboot the computer. Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable): How reproducible: Every time Steps to Reproduce: 1.Plug in IRiber (possibly any USB mass storage device) that contains Korean characters in the file names. 2.Try to browse a directory containing the file 3.Watch as kernel crashes or hangs with only option to reboot Actual results: Expected results: Additional info:

An update has been released for Fedora Core 3 (kernel-2.6.12-1.1372_FC3) which may contain a fix for your problem. Please update to this new kernel, and report whether or not it fixes your problem. If you have updated to Fedora Core 4 since this bug was opened, and the problem still occurs with the latest updates for that release, please change the version field of this bug to 'fc4'. Thank you.

This bug has been automatically closed as part of a mass update. It had been in NEEDINFO state since July 2005. If this bug still exists in current errata kernels, please reopen this bug. There are a large number of inactive bugs in the database, and this is the only way to purge them. Thank you.
