Description of problem:
When I name mountpoint in auto.misc with cyrillic letters (KOI8-R), automount fails with following in /var/log/messages
automount: handle_packet_missing: path to be mounted is to long
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1.Create mount point in /etc/auto.misc
ï¿½ï¿½ï¿½ï¿½ï¿½ -fstype=auto :/dev/cdrom
(ï¿½ï¿½ï¿½ï¿½ï¿½ - it's a cyrillic transliteration of latin cdrom :-) )
2. ls /misc/ï¿½ï¿½ï¿½ï¿½ï¿½
Actual Results: 1. ls: /mnt/ï¿½ï¿½ï¿½ï¿½ï¿½: No such file or directory
2. /var/log/messages :

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.
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)?
