Description Marc Groot Koerkamp 2003-09-05 08:39:04 UTC
Previous CVS versions of samba 3 couldn't show filenames with 8 bit 
characters. Instead a filename with all squares was displayed.

Latest CVS shows me the characters before the special 8bit character and 
continious from that position with squares.

A debug level = 10 log fragment is attached.

Have you already installed iconv() and 
set "dos charset" and "unix charset" parameters correctly?

To handle NON-ASCII characters correctly, these are needed.
Comment 3 Marc Groot Koerkamp 2003-09-08 05:15:13 UTC
I just compiled iconv 1.9.1 from source and used --with-iconvlib=/usr/local 
with latest CVS with as result nobody could login.

I switched back to the RC2 source with better results.
It appears that the default unix charset was utf8 instead of cp850 like the 
manual said. (testparm -v)

Setting it to cp850 worked a little bit better. I can see the special chars 
again but now smb crashed because of a missing UTF-8.so 
in /usr/local/samba/lib/charset

How can i compile samba so that UTF-8.so is created?
Comment 4 Marc Groot Koerkamp 2003-09-08 08:00:04 UTC
After downloading the latest gcc (version 3.3.1-3) from RH rawhide and 
recompiling libiconv and samba 3 RC2 the problem is solved.

originally reported against one of the 3.0.0rc[1-4] releases.
Cleaning up non-production versions.

sorry for the same, cleaning up the database to prevent unecessary reopens of bugs.
