Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 141952
USB mass storage with Korean file names causes kernel to hang
Last modified: 2015-01-04 17:13:38 EST
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):
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
