Please provide your smb.conf

Comment 3 Alexander Bokovoy 2003-12-09 01:19:19 UTC
So, according to your smb.conf, you have following charset settings:

dos charset = cp850 (default)
unix charset = utf-8 (default)
display charset = ISO8859-1 (set manually)

It means that shared through samba filenames on the server must be encoded in
UTF-8 charset. If it is not true (i.e. you do have different encoding for your
file names), please fix either setting in smb.conf or rename files so that they
conform with specified 'unix charset' (UTF-8 in the case).

Many changes in 3.0.2a and in the latest cvs.
marking this one as fixed.  Please let us know if the 
latest 3.0 cvs code still fails.
Comment 5 Roland Jungwirth 2004-03-17 07:07:31 UTC
We had to rename files, no more problems since that.

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