Embedded linux filename length


Hi,


I am using an arm development platform. There I installed udev and it works perfect. But when I mount a pen drive and see the file content all files and folders with names having more than 8 chars have been replaced with "~" char. eg: myfilename.mp3 is replaced with myfile~e.mp3

Before udev installation it worked well. (All file names appeared normally). What should I do?

thank you.
