also on my
slug. I noticed on the slug's web interface that a space was inserted
in some of
the file names where an international character was previously.
I *do* believe that the problem is a Windows problem. You might like
to see my

will always stick with ISO 8859-1 *until* it finds a character that
overlap with UTF-8 like å and ø. Only then will it fall over to UTF-8.
Now my problem with GTKpod was easily solved by telling it (and samba)
in ISO 8859-1. However, I couldn't tell my Linux based Reciva radio to
ISO 8859-1 just as we can't seem to tell a slug to do the same thing
moving off away from uNSLUng. Sorry to say I ended up going through my
MP3's and removing all offending diacritics and other characters.
If you could get all the files renamed on a Linux box and *then* put
them on the
*native* slug disk, that might do the trick. I want those characters
too, so I
will be working on it.
Any other thoughts from anyone?
And perhaps since you mentioned it you might tell me how you make out with
Mediatomb. I have trouble with it telling me the mediatomb.db file is
on restart. It works fine for me when I start it and use it, but once
shutdown and restarted it says the database is corrupted (which I have
with "sqlite3_analyzer.exe". I exchanged emails with one of the
authors and he
feels that perhaps the .db file is getting saved in 'flash' which is a
He thought perhaps moving it to a mounted disk location, perhaps in
music files might fix it, but I haven't tried yet.
Sorry for the length of this post, and if you care to talk about
perhaps begin another thread?
Thanks and take care.....
