Wink German umlaute (special chars) in file system


Hallo,

I installed SuSE 8.2 and Samba. I made the following settings in smb.conf under der general section:

character set = iso8859-1

and in fstab:

/..... iocharset=iso8859-1

If I create a directory "Mller" than I can see it from my Windows client (sorry, sometimes I have to use this system). But when I check it on my Linux console than I get "M?ller". Do someone have an idea?

Greetings
Joern

I'm guessing with this, because I have those characters working perfectly ...
/etc/profile.d/lang.sh

export LANG=nl_BE@euro

you might want to change the nl_BE@euro to your own specific language setting (which I don't know, I'm sorry)

I don't know if running the script is good enough, I have a laptop so rebooting does happen once in a while and works perfectly... try it out, I don't know if it helps though...

ok ... I did some more thinking and found out more people have this problem. I don't know if this is in any way correct information, or a falsely made link to filesystem properties ... but it's better to try to help


which filesystem are you using? I did some research on google just now and came up with several links to questions about people who have this same problem, or a related one, with ext2. Here's a link about it (in German)

Ext3 doesn't seem to do this flawlessly either

I'm using JFS and SuSE v8.2 with all current patches.

then it's beyond my reach I think ... have a look at the documentation for JFS to see if it recognises those characters ...
