    SS 6.0.1: UTF-8 in file/directory name

    Hi,

    Just upgraded my 5.4 slim server to 6.0.1 (on RH9) to host my new SB2.

    After the scan I found my collection a bit small.

    Looked in slimserver.log

    utf8 "\xE9" does not map to Unicode at
    /usr/local/slimserver/Slim/Formats/Parse.pm line 131.
    [/music/test/own/Latin/Various Artists/Caf\xE9 Do Brazil/Marcos Valle - A
    Vontage De Rever Voce 09.flac] does not exist or cannot be read: No such
    file or directory at /usr/local/slimserver/CPAN/Audio/FLAC/Header.pm line
    59, <GEN6> line 6. <similar lines reported often)

    I have unloaded most of my music via a samba3 share. On windows explorer (on
    XP) this directroty looks ok: CafÚ Do Brazil (with the accented e). Linux ls
    like it less, but I don't (didn't??) really care about what ls says because
    5.4 did not have issues with these file/directory names.

    Please don't tell me that I need to rename all my directories . There must
    but a silver bullit somewhere.

    Anybody who has dealt with this before or give me some hints on how to
    recover?

    Thanks

    Dolf

    Is your music on the Windows machine (via Samba) or local to the RH9 machine?

    What does your LC_CTYPE environment variable look like?

    I'm assuming it's: en_US.UTF-8 (or similar).

    Can you try setting it to:

    export LC_CTYPE=en_US.ISO-8859-1

    and rescanning?
