    Re: Mount samba shares with utf8 encoding using cifs

    This is super, thanks for the help!

    One thing you may want to include in the tutorial is the 'nobrl' option for users of OpenOffice that open files on CIFS shares. I have a NAS where I store my documents and kept getting errors when I would save my docs to the drive. I discovered that the errors were due to the fact that OpenOffice doesn't use CIFS-style mandatory byte range locks (, so adding the 'nobrl' option in my FSTAB stopped the errors.

    My apologies if this was already posted in one of the 70 pages on this thread.
