The Samba-Bugzilla – Bug 495
SWAT view page cannot be correctly displayed
Last modified: 2005-08-24 10:21:44 UTC
If 'unix charset' and 'dos charset' parameters are different
and non-ASCII characters are used in smb.conf,
the "view" page on SWAT will be broken.
Because "view" page calls lp_dump() in swat.c:394, lp_dump() always
displays the contents of smb.conf without charset conversion (this means
always to display with 'unix chatset').
>If 'unix charset' and 'dos charset' parameters are different
** not 'dos chatset' but 'display charset' **
Currently 'display charset' parameter must be same the encoding
which msg file is encoded with. In Japanese this means 'display
charset' must be set to 'CP932'.
So if we set "unix charset' as 'EUCJP-MS', this problem will occur.
This has been documented in the SWAT chapter of the HOWTO.
Can this bug be closed?
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.
