    Embedded linux filename length


    I am using an arm development platform. There I installed udev and it works perfect. But when I mount a pen drive and see the file content all files and folders with names having more than 8 chars have been replaced with "~" char. eg: myfilename.mp3 is replaced with myfile~e.mp3

    Before udev installation it worked well. (All file names appeared normally). What should I do?

    thank you.

    You might need to pass an option to the mount command (that udev is doing behind the scenes, I guess) in order to get that to work right. When the pen drive is mounted, do this command and show the output:
    cat /proc/mounts
    What is the filesystem? ntfs, vfat, etc.

    You are right.It was a problem with mount command.After adding -vfat argument in to my mount command problem thank you very much for your advices.
