Description of problem:
i just upgraded to new kernel 2.6.7-1.494.2.2 and now the vfat mount
of my data partition canÂ´t display any unicode umlaute like Ã¤,Ã¼, etc..
in the old kernel 2.6.6-1.435 every thing was fine. the original vfat
partition was created by using win xp.
my mount options in /etc/fstab are
/dev/hdb5 /mnt/daten vfat
/mnt/daten /home/chris/daten vfat bind
i tried the following (after googling):
- changed the line in /etc/sysconfig/i18n to
now vfat mounts correctly display filenames but cifs mounts are
coruppted. with LANG="de_DE.UTF-8" its vice versa.
thanx a lot&all the best
