Summary: vfat mount default for shortname=... changed ?
Classification: openSUSE
Product: openSUSE 11.3
Version: Final
Platform: x86-64
OS/Version: Other
Status: NEW
Severity: Normal
Priority: P5 - None
Component: Basesystem
AssignedTo: bnc-team-screening@xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx
ReportedBy: koenig@xxxxxxxx

Blocker: ---


in 11.3 doing a plain "mount /dev/mmcblk0p1 /mnt" causes directories and files
show up in all UPPERCASE, while they have been lowercase in 11.1.

/proc/mounts shows that (now?) it's mounted with shortname=mixed

$ grep /mnt /proc/mounts
/dev/mmcblk0p1 /mnt vfat
rw,relatime,fmask=0022,dmask=0022,codepage=cp437,iocharset=iso8859-1,shortname=mixed,errors=remount-ro
0 0

while the "man mount" claimes that the default is "lower" (as it seemed to be
in 11.1, at least according to the bahaviour of 11.1 ...)

shortname={lower|win95|winnt|mixed}

Defines the behaviour for creation and display of filenames
which fit into 8.3 characters. If a long name for a file exists,
it will always be preferred display. There are four modes: :

lower Force the short name to lower case upon display; store a
long name when the short name is not all upper case. This
mode is the default.


bug or new "feature" (which I just missed the docs for;) ?
