Other than US encoding


I cant access to Russian named dirs/files on my fat32/ntfs. And when I create Russian named file on reiserfs its name displayed like ?????? ?? ??. Can I fix it? And, by the way, I cant type Russian in Emacs, though I chose non-US layouts handling for Emacs during (Slackware) installation. Kernel supports my Russian encodings.
Any ideas?

the kernel must be compiled with the necessary codepages (all of them) in order to access fat/vfat file systems (codepages translate to and from the necessary encoding on fat/vat)

and as for reiserfs, i think thats the kernel, if it has the necessary encodings compiled in tho, there shouldn't be a problem (you should use utf-8 in there also), as for emacs thing, as i recall, emacs is for X is it not? (i never seen it work in console), but either way, setup the environment to use Russian layouts ("loadkeys" in for the virtual terminals, and "xloadkeys" for X i think it was)

all i know is that in the kernel it says "use this encoding for default" i think ... its a string you type in, but it isn't necessary that much, apparently its only used on the file systems fat/vat and i think ext2/3 and maybe minix (mostly the old file systems)

as for systems encoding, use the LC environment variables .... personally i prefer utf8 as it has support for every language (thru unicode)

http://home.no.net/david/i18n.php#utf maybe can help

I recompiled kernel, but still can't access to Russian named files on fat32/ntfs. Thanks for the link. I'll see it someday...
