The Samba-Bugzilla – Bug 411
Cannot view filenames with 8bit characters
Last modified: 2005-11-14 09:29:24 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.
Created attachment 124 [details]
debug level 10 log file
Have you already installed iconv() and
set "dos charset" and "unix charset" parameters correctly?
To handle NON-ASCII characters correctly, these are needed.
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
How can i compile samba so that UTF-8.so is created?
After downloading the latest gcc (version 3.3.1-3) from RH rawhide and
recompiling libiconv and samba 3 RC2 the problem is solved.
Thanks for letting us know.
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.
