Re: [HOW] Changing FC3 file system to accept longer file names?



I was wondering how do I get the FC3 file system to accept longer file
names?  I have a few files that are X characters long on my Mac OSX
machine and when I move the files over to my FC3 system I get the error of the file being too many characters and to rename it. The problem is
I can't rename these files for whatever reason.  Help!

Thanks,
jay
In addition to the other questions ;

What are you using to transfer the files :

netatalk - 32 character limit
scp
ftp
samba
...

Please provide more information than "X characters long". Unless
you are using the Roman Numbering system where X = 10, we can not
help you solve an indeterminate variable. If you are not sure
which file it is, try some tests and figure out what the maximum
file size that will transfer is.

Sorry for not being very specific about the characters (I didn't know but know now for any future message I send).

At work they are using netatalk and the file I'm trying to move is 32 characters long.

I can move a file that is 31 characters long without a problem. Even after I move the file with 31 characters over and add one character to make it 32 characters long I get an error about file name length being too long. I'm assuming since we are using netatalk that it doesn't have the ability to read files that are longer than 31 characters? Is there a way to change this? (I don't know anything about netatalk beside the obvious)

Thanks,
jay
