Description maxmonroe 2004-08-19 13:15:03 EDT
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 can´t display any unicode umlaute like ä,ü, 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   
0 0
/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

Comment 1 Dave Jones 2005-04-16 01:19:04 EDT
Fedora Core 2 has now reached end of life, and no further updates will be
provided by Red Hat.  The Fedora legacy project will be producing further kernel
updates for security problems only.

If this bug has not been fixed in the latest Fedora Core 2 update kernel, please
try to reproduce it under Fedora Core 3, and reopen if necessary, changing the
product version accordingly.

Thank you.
