Description of problem:
Hal is unable to detect correctly NTFS volume labels with non-latin1 labels
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Create ntfs volume on Windows box with wolume label "Новый том" (it means "New volume") in Russian
2. Attach volume to F12 box and compare ntfslabel and lshal ootput
[root@leon ~]# ntfslabel /dev/sdb1
volume.label = '55555 555' (string)
It should be volume.label = 'Новый том' (string)
In F9-F11 it worked fine for me.
Created attachment 369017 [details]
As a result of this bug, volume label is incorrect in Nautilus window
hal is no longer involved here, when nautilus shows this.
Moving to DeviceKit-disks.
What is the output of 'udevadm info -q all -n <device>' where <device> is e.g. /dev/sdb1 or wherever the filesystem is?
udevadm info -q all -n /dev/sdb1
E: DEVLINKS=/dev/block/8:17 /dev/disk/by-id/usb-SAMSUNG_HM080HC-0:0-part1 /dev/disk/by-path/pci-0000:00:1d.7-usb-0:5:1.0-scsi-0:0:0:0-part1 /dev/disk/by-uuid/F67E0DF77E0DB183 /dev/disk/by-label/\x3f\x3f\x3f\x3f\x3f\x20\x3f\x3f\x3f

Looks like blkid gets it wrong here. Reassigning to util-linux-ng. Karel?
Good catch. Thanks Leonid!
Fixed in upstream repository. I'll add the bug fix to the next F-12 util-linux-ng update.
util-linux-ng-2.16.2-2.fc12 has been submitted as an update for Fedora 12.
util-linux-ng-2.16.2-2.fc12 has been pushed to the Fedora 12 testing repository. If problems still persist, please make note of it in this bug report.
If you want to test the update, you can install it with
su -c 'yum --enablerepo=updates-testing update util-linux-ng'. You can provide feedback for this update here: http://admin.fedoraproject.org/updates/F12/FEDORA-2009-12878
This message is a reminder that Fedora 12 is nearing its end of life.
Approximately 30 (thirty) days from now Fedora will stop maintaining
and issuing updates for Fedora 12. It is Fedora's policy to close all
bug reports from releases that are no longer maintained. At that time
this bug will be closed as WONTFIX if it remains open with a Fedora
'version' of '12'.
Package Maintainer: If you wish for this bug to remain open because you
plan to fix it in a currently maintained version, simply change the 'version'
to a later Fedora version prior to Fedora 12's end of life.
Bug Reporter: Thank you for reporting this issue and we are sorry that
we may not be able to fix it before Fedora 12 is end of life. If you
would still like to see this bug fixed and are able to reproduce it
against a later version of Fedora please change the 'version' of this
bug to the applicable version. If you are unable to change the version,
please add a comment here and someone will do it for you.
Although we aim to fix as many bugs as possible during every release's
lifetime, sometimes those efforts are overtaken by events. Often a
more recent Fedora release includes newer upstream software that fixes
bugs or makes them obsolete.
The process we are following is described here:
Fedora 12 changed to end-of-life (EOL) status on 2010-12-02. Fedora 12 is
no longer maintained, which means that it will not receive any further
security or bug fix updates. As a result we are closing this bug.
If you can reproduce this bug against a currently maintained version of
Fedora please feel free to reopen this bug against that version.
Thank you for reporting this bug and we are sorry it could not be fixed.
