Description Alain RICHARD 2002-06-07 06:00:01 EDT
From Bugzilla Helper:

User-Agent: Mozilla/4.0 (compatible; MSIE 5.14; Mac_PowerPC)

Description of problem:

When you use a codepage:maccode.iso8859-1 option in 

/etc/atalk/AppleVolumes.default, the afpd process fail to load the 

translation table maccode.iso8859-1 because it looks to it in the directory


instead of looking for it where it is really installed :


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

How reproducible:


Steps to Reproduce:

1.specify a codepage:maccode.iso8859-1 in 


2.start netatalk

3.try to connect to the shared folder from a Mac and look at 

/var/log/message for the error


Actual Results:  the translation table is not loaded, so european diatrical 

marks are not in sync between MacOS/Linux/Samba.

The filename stored on the share are using the MacOS charset and 

unusable from the Linux or Samba side.

Expected Results:  The filename should be translated to ISO-1 charset in 

order to be shared with the other plateforms

Additional info:

A temporary fix  :

mkdir -p /usr/etc/netatalk

cd /usr/etc/netatalk

ln -s ../../../etc/atalk/nls nls
