hello,

v6.1b2 nightly from 2005-07-10 does not pick up any of my directories
or files with swedish characters in them. Just skips them completely...

What do you need from me to troubleshoot this or what do I need that
I have not to makes this work...

thanks!

This is probably the unicode related bug that has been reported in bug report #1786 (http://bugs.slimdevices.com/show_bug.cgi?id=1786). It is also discussed in the Beta Forum at (http://forums.slimdevices.com/showthread.php?t=14995). No fix as of yet, but hopefully it will be fixed next week (that's just optimism - I have no inside information as to the status of this bug).

What is your LC_CTYPE or LANG environment variable set to?

Can you wipe & rescan?

Were the files ripped on the machine they are stored on?

wiped and rescanned lots of times, no change.

had no LC_CTYPE or LANG defined at all (uh ohh...?) but now I have
en_US.utf8 defined for all. do I need to restart the whole server
after this.... uh?

Yes - you'll need to restart, then wipe and rescan.

It's imperative that the LC_CTYPE matches the file encoding of that when the
CDs were originally ripped. Thus, if you originally ripped and had no
LC_CTYPE, that may have defaulted to en_US.ISO-8859-1. Setting your LC_CTYPE
to en_US.utf8 won't be able to read those files then!

ahhh, all my files are ripped on my windoze system. all access to/from
slimserver via a samba share with "character set = ISO8859-1" so maybe
it's best to stick with that charset for now...

If I set the variables accordingly it should work with ISO8859-1, right?

Worked fine before I moved to the v6 branch...

The server can read the tags perfectly, it's only when it's a swedish character
in the filename I get the problem. Browsing the albums I get the album and all tracks
WITHOUT the special characters.

Scanning thru the debugging it looks though it just skips them or does not see
them at all. no errors, nothing. just parsing thru the files/dirs without swedish
characters...
