smbmount WinXP SMB share under UTF-8 locale
Last modified: 2004-08-11 08:01:52 UTC
I'm using Gentoo Linux with kernel 2.6.7 and the locale is set as zh_HK.utf8.
In WinXP environment, I have a lot of files with Chinese character filename. I
setup SMB share in WinXP for my Gentoo box to mount.
I tried to mount with different options, e.g. iocharset, codepage, etc. However,
I still cannot shown the Chinese filename correctly. Just show some rubblish
However, when I set the locale back to zh_HK.big5hkscs, the problem of display
of chinese filename is solved.
How can I mount WinXP SMB share under UTF-8 locale to show the Unicode filename
correctly? Thanks in advanced.
smbfs is not part of samba. smbfs is broken and does not support unicode. try
