Description TOYAMA Shin-ichi 2006-04-20 02:25:58 EDT
Description of problem:
Charset options for VFAT have no effect and filename always appears in UTF-8.

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

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. # mount -t vfat -o codepage=932,iocharset=euc-jp /dev/xxx /mount/point
2. # ls /mount/point
Actual results:
Filenames in /mount/point appears in UTF-8

Expected results:
Filenames in /mount/point appears in euc-jp

Additional info:
There is no problem with vanilla kernel( from kernel.org
Comment 1 Kurt Swanson 2006-07-06 21:03:33 EDT
Apparently it was decided that all VFAT partitions SHALL be UTF8, unless
explicitly told otherwise, via an undocumented option.  For a work-around, mount
your VFAT partitions with an additional, undocumented option: utf8=0

See bug 181963

Note that other distros, like Ubuntu, do not have this hard-coded kernel bug.
Comment 2 TOYAMA Shin-ichi 2006-07-07 23:56:36 EDT
Adding option utf8=0 worked well, thank you!
But I feel it incorrect that kerel ignores iocharset option without this
