Description of problem:
When I name mountpoint in auto.misc with cyrillic letters (KOI8-R), automount fails with following in /var/log/messages
automount[1422]: handle_packet_missing: path to be mounted is to long

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1.Create mount point in /etc/auto.misc 
����� -fstype=auto :/dev/cdrom
(����� - it's a cyrillic transliteration of latin cdrom :-) )
2. ls /misc/�����


Actual Results:  1. ls: /mnt/�����: No such file or directory
2. /var/log/messages :
Sep  8 09:29:00 SukholetSI automount[15577]: handle_packet_missing: path to be mounted is to long

Expected Results:  mounted cd in my drive

bugzilla eats all my cyrillic letters, even the encoding of this page is UTF8

Another bug?!

sorry for a duplicates, that whas something with my
It was unable to me to send a bug, may be due to cyrillic letters in messages?

Comment 5 Jeff Moyer 2005-09-16 20:45:33 UTC
I'll take a look at this.  Thanks!

Comment 6 Jeff Moyer 2005-09-16 21:53:04 UTC
In theory, you should be able to use encodings other than ascii, so long as the
encoding of the shell matches the encoding of the automount map.  It *may* work,
but no guarantees.  (I'll note that I *can't* get it to work).

Is this really posing a problem in your environment?  Do you have a workaround?
 Since no one else has reported this problem, this is kind of low priority for
me.  Let me know if it is a big problem for you, and I'll see what I can do.


Comment 7 CTAC 2005-09-19 01:00:36 UTC
Of course, I've change my mount points to latin names - that was a workaround.
But this is not very usefull.
I think, that it should be not really hard to fix - just change something like
'getstring' in C code to have any type of characters (i.e. not only [0-127] but
And possible, to have mountpoints with UTF8 (default locale for modern RH lunuxes)?

Fedora Core 3 is now maintained by the Fedora Legacy project for security
updates only. If this problem is a security issue, please reopen and
reassign to the Fedora Legacy product. If it is not a security issue and
hasn't been resolved in the current FC5 updates or in the FC6 test
release, reopen and change the version to match.

Thank you!

Fedora Core 3 is not maintained anymore.

Setting status to "INSUFFICIENT_DATA". If you can reproduce this bug in the
current Fedora release, please reopen this bug and assign it to the
