Have you ever faced a bug like this bnc#540598 ?
When you create zip archive with non-English filenames and try to unpack it on openSUSE, filenames within archive become unreadable. It can irritate, isn’t it?
It seems as if we found a solution for Russian language. We tested it and it works for us.
It would be helpful if some of you could test your local language. And check whether core functionality still works 😉
Here is a list of languages that are potentially affected by this bug: Ukrainian,Belorussian, Bulgarian, Croatian, Czech, Estonian, French, German,Hungarian, Italian, Lithuanian, Latvian, Polish, Slovak, Spanish,Slovenian, Swedish.
So it is worth to test them in the first place.
The reproducer is pretty simple:
- create zip archive on windows with file named in you local language
- transfer archive to openSUSE system
- unpack it
- see if filenames are readable
What needs to be tested:
- if this bug applicable to you language
- if core functionality of unzip still works
