Hi guys, i can't recovery non-ascii files.

i'm using amrecover to recovery files, my amanda version is 2.5, when i send the ls command in the amrecover shell it return a list like that (i.e.):

2008-10-30 Diret?rio1
2008-10-30 Administra??o

I just can add this files sending this comand (i.e.):

add Dire*
add Admi*

and it return

Added dir Diret\347rio1 at date 2008-10-30
Added dir Administra\347\343o at date 2008-10-30

and when i send the extract comand, after few minutes amanda can't find the file.
I can just recovery ascii files

Please somebody help me!

Problem Solved

I think this problem happen because the amanda database is using a different encoding of the linux, and when amanda try to extract the files of the tape, the GNUTAR cant find the file (please correct me if I'm wrong).


just type:

# export LC_ALL=pt_BR.ISO8859-1
# export LANG=pt_BR.ISSO8859-1

Change the "pt_BR.ISO8859-1" by your own encoding

Thank you!
