here's my setup:
60 gb hard
with 40 gb in reiserfs partitions
20 gb in fat32 (i use it for music)
everything was fine with kernel 2.6.7, then i upgraded to 188.8.131.52. UH OH. i can't mount my vfat partition anymore
. so, being that a conversion was overdue, i just converted it, no biggie.
Now, 3 weeks later, i have a digicam with a smart media card. i bought one of those 6-in-1 readers, and i'm having the same problem - i can't mount vfat partitions - the same error i was having earlier.
james@a4-1800:~$ sudo mount -t vfat /dev/sdb1 /media/reader
mount: wrong fs type, bad option, bad superblock on /dev/sdb1,
or too many mounted file systems
Sooooo... my only clue would be the introduction of " Default codepage for FAT " ( FAT_DEFAULT_CODEPAGE ) and " Default iocharset for FAT " ( FAT_DEFAULT_IOCHARSET ).
they are currently compiled with codepage = 437 and iocharset = iso8859-1
what should the defaults be?
