Description dhunt 1998-11-19 13:30:57 UTC
In /usr/lib/linuxconf/images, there are several gif files
with German characters in them (they show up as \344 in
emacs).  When I attempt to secure my server by installing
tripwire, these file names cause it to crash.  This perhaps
should be called a bug in tripwire, but it seems that these
files could cause other applications problems as well.

Comment 1 Michael K. Johnson 1998-11-23 16:50:59 UTC
8-bit characters are intentionally allowed in filenames.
This is not a bug in Linuxconf, and as more and more files
with 8-bit names will show up, might as well fix tripwire
sooner as later.
