Memory stick filesystem - filename problems
Last modified: 2013-03-05 22:48:50 EST
Description of problem:
When I use a memory stick and copy files onto it using
the cp -r command, some of the uppercase letters in file
names become lowercase. I could not figure out which ones
and why. When I examine the mtab I see the line:
/dev/sda1 /media/disk vfat
rw,noexec,nosuid,nodev,noatime,uid=500,utf8,shortname=lower 0 0
e.g. shortname=lower. Where is this coming from?
I am using KDE as the desktop. If you think this is not a hal
issue but has to do with KDE mediamanger please reassign.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
Sorry, I presume this is due to vfat filesystem on the stick.
