Public bug reported:

Binary package hint: linux-image-generic


Every time when I try to mount my flash drive and ntfs filesystems with Cyrillic filenames on newly installed ubuntu, I have problems with charset. I have to configure fstab
('iocharset=utf8' for FAT, something like a  'nls=utf8' for NTFS)

Even windows uses unicode, but ubuntu uses strange 1byte charsets((((. From config-2.6.27-11-generic
