Subject description: Filenames in Big5 encoding do not display correctly when a window vfat drive is mounted
 

I tried something like:

mount -t vfat -o codepage=950,iocharset=big5 /dev/hda1 /mnt/c
or
mount -t vfat -o codepage=950,iocharset=big5 /dev/hda1 /mnt/c
or
mount -t vfat -o iocharset=big5 /dev/hda1 /mnt/c
or
mount -t vfat -o iocharset=cp950 /dev/hda1 /mnt/c

the drive in vfat format mounted successfully, but all filenames in traditonal Chinese encoding(Big5) display as illegible codes. (question marks in black diamond).

If I used Pmount or Mut that come with Puppy, such filenames displayed as a series of question marks.

I have installed additional traditional chinese fonts. Do I need other setting as well?

you could try something like this in terminal,

Code:

# mount /dev/hda2 /mnt/hda2/ -t vfat -o iocharset=utf8
# mount /dev/hda5 /mnt/hda5/ -t ntfs -o iocharset=utf8



Since the Chinese Puppy uses the locale of utf8, I suggest that you need to add the parameter "iocharset=utf8" to the command you type to mount the partition.

If you put the Puppy system files in drive C under Windows, when puppy boots up that partition will be mount as initrd/dev_save and could be used as /mnt/home, so you will not be able to mount that partition again (because it is already mounted and in use by Puppy) and view Chinese file names on that partition.

If anyone else has a better solution, please kindly let us know.

regards,

cecc
