Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 454354
FAT filesystem mount option utf8=0 is not documented
Last modified: 2008-09-10 03:11:34 EDT
Description of problem:
The Fedora kernel defaults to setting the utf8 mount option for the FAT
filesystem. (See bug 181963)
This can be disabled with the mount option 'utf8=0' (or 'utf8=no' or
'utf8=false') but that isn't documented in the mount(8) manpage.
Fixed in upstream code, and will be fixed in Fedora ASAP. Thanks for your report.
Fixed in F9.
util-linux-ng-2.13.1-8.3.fc9 has been submitted as an update for Fedora 9
util-linux-ng-2.13.1-8.3.fc9 has been pushed to the Fedora 9 stable repository. If problems still persist, please make note of it in this bug report.
