German Umlaut Problem
Last modified: 2005-11-14 09:28:20 UTC
German Umlaut problem on Solaris 5.7.
- older files, (created from windows clients, bevore samba update to 3.0.0)
which contain German Umlauts, are not displayed properly, this files can´t be
accessed under Windows now.
- new files, which contain German Umlauts, created from Windows-Clients, can´t
be accessed under solaris now.
Please provide your smb.conf
Created attachment 308 [details]
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.
We had to rename files, no more problems since that.
sorry for the same, cleaning up the database to prevent unecessary reopens of bugs.
