This is a re-post, I am getting desperate because my work require me to connect to this share and my colleague can mount the share on Debian. I will have to move to install Debian if I wish to go on working... But I am already used to my BSD. It's too strange to move to another OS for such a tiny problem! Could what I mention below be a bug of FreeBSD mount_smbfs?
Using FreeBSD 6.1, I can mount a windows share but the Chinese characters in folder and file names look junk text to me. Charset conversion (-E parameter of mount_smbfs) do not work at all. If I do ls(1) to a directory that has Chinese character in its name, the process 'ls' will take about 80% CPU resource and hang there forever. Ctrl+C cannot stop it (kill -KILL can). If I run other command that read any file in the directory that has Chinese character in its name, that application hangs there taking about 80% CPU resource too. This process is better illustrated with this screenshot: gopher://sdf.lonestar.org/I/users/weiwu/mount_chinese_smbshare.png In the screenshot, I do have mounted the share with -E parameter which should convert GB18030 folder names to UTF-8 but actually no conversion is done (see the ls | iconv which shows what it should be looking like if the conversion is done) Actually I have never successfully done charset conversion with mount_smbfs, what did I do wrong? _______________________________________________ firstname.lastname@example.org mailing list http://lists.freebsd.org/mailman/listinfo/freebsd-questions To unsubscribe, send any mail to "[EMAIL PROTECTED]"
