linux ksmbfs and non 8.3 compliant names

Post by sma.. » Fri, 06 Sep 1996 04:00:00



I know it sounds bizarre, but I have need to mount a unix filesystem through smb  to my linux box (2.0.17) , when I have done this, the file names are the
8.3 managed names :-(.   This doesn't happen when I'm mounting these file
systems on my NT boxes.  Has anyone else used the ksmbfs and gotten this to
work (upper and lower case names needed for java work).

please e-mail a reply

ksmbfs is the old name for smbfs, so maybe you are using a version
that is too old.

Ok, I've been trying to say that I can see long file names just fine from th
e NT box (I have only preserver case), but I can't see them from the linux box.

The SMB filesystem in the 2.0-series kernels only includes 8.3 support by
default, but if you recompile your kernel with "prompt for experimental
drivers" (or something similar -- it's one of the first questions you get
from "make config"), you'll get the option for long filename support.

Cheers.

1. enforce 8.3-compliant filename on a Linux ext2 partition?


You can setup Win95 to use 8.3 filenames only. As well as NT WKS.
Some magic registry hacks needed.
