The camera is Sony Mavica floppy disk version, MVC-FD87 which saves the files or images as all UPPERCASED including the extension.
xterm, konsole and File Browser all show the file as lowercase on Fedora Core 3, but it's not accurate because on other Linux boxes they show up as uppercase filenames just like they do on my trashbox win98se machine and my mac g3/500. The o/s is Fedora Core 3 as stated in the previous post. The kernel is 2.6.9-1.667 as stated in the headline of this thread. They show up in lower case letters in both gnome and kde 3.3. Even on the source floppy, looking with xterm or konsole, the filenames are all in lowercase. When I use html editors to create web pages with the file, they won't show up in the preview windows like they do with other operating systems using the same html editors. When the file is dragged into the editor the name is in all upper case letters but on the system its all lower case letters.
I even tested this out with geocities. I uploaded a image from a MAC and a WIN system from the floppy that the camera just saved the images to. I then uploaded the same image on the FC3 system. What happened? The file didn;t get overwritten. Two files were listed there. One with all lower case characters and one with all upper case characters. And "no" I didn't select the option to lower case the file with the geocities upload utility. So the html I created had all upper case letters and the files uploaded had lower case letters. On a winblows system like IIS that wouldn't be a problem since Windows doesn't mind the case of the characters, but Geocities and my other systems do mind and don't show anything at all. I have to manually change the file names. And some of my web pages that are already uploaded and unchanged use many of the same updated images but won't show them.
The issue then is not the html editor but Fedora Core's setting somewhere. The question of course, is where do I hack to fix this??
Note how this list has some images with some uppercased letters. These were downloaded with Firefox 1.0, created with The GIMP or ftp'd with gFTP. I forgot to point out that the Mavica formats the diskettes in DOS. Even if I format them first with Fedora Core 3, the same problem persists.
The filenames in red are from the mavica floppy:
[root@blue-fedora ~]# ls imagez/workzone
(I would like to talk to the idjit that said it was ok to impliment this "feature" that is fubar!)
