Description of problem:
When viewing directories and listings of filenames which are named in non-latin
characters, it appears as question marks, we found the solution is to add
iocharset=utf8 in the fstab for CD-ROMs and floppies...etc
What if it is included by default in the fstab when installed, and that will
make it easy for all non-latin speakers to see their filenames in their own
languages. It wouldn't harm anyone, since UTF-8 is the default charset in RedHat
8.0 ( and above !!)
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1.Edit the fstab to add the iocharset option
2.Have files named in non-latin characters
3.View them in your favourite file manager
Actual Results: It will help non-expert users alot
Isn't it time to revise the issue again ??
It won't harm anyone, but sure it will benefit alot of people.
Not sure why I'm on the CC of this bug report as I've no opinion on the matter,
nor would I be involved in it's resolution...
Duplicates: #101987, #107834, #107935.
This problem has been reported least three times during severn beta cycle.
#107834 has alternative fix.
I hope this gets fixed before FC1 release.
Any resolutions ??
This is changed in the rawhide kernel... it defaults to utf-8.
