Description of problem:
I have a FAT32 partition (from Win98Se) with few directories whose
name displayed as gibberish (they are probably in Russian). whenever I
try to access these directories, kernel oopses. Windows scandisk does
not report any errors. This only started to happen in latest kernel
2.6.7-1.494.2.2. I renamed these directories to sane names, so I
probably won't be able to reproduce the bug now.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. See description.
Actual Results: kernel oops
Expected Results: access directory
Created attachment 102809 [details]
kernel messages I got trying to ls the directory
I am having the same problem.
mass update for old bugs:
Is this still a problem in the 2.6.9 based kernel update ?
I changed name of the directory to more sane and never saw that problem since.
