I have a problem concerning my samba shares. When I copy files from a windows xp station, the file names are in iso8859-1, though the filesystem (which is ext4) uses utf-8. So everytime I copied data from windows, I have to run convmv.
Additionally, all files I copy to the share have the executable bit set, regardless of the type of the file.
What can I do about this?
