    File Manager File names in all caps?

    I am using Suse 10.1, KDE 3.5x and am having some issues with the file manager. I never noticed this before, so I am not sure if this is a new issue, or preexisting...
    If I name a file in all caps (i.e. TEST.TXT), when I hit enter, it shows it in all caps then changes it to all lowercase. Now, this is driving me crazy! I do this intentionally, and it is really irritating me.

    On my Suse 10.0 machine, I don't have this weird behavior in the file manager, but for some reason rsync is doing it... I could have a file ABC.ISO, and when rsync writes the file to the destination, it will be written as abc.iso. So, when I run an incremental the next day, ABC.ISO is transferred, even though it hasn't changed. ABC.ISO doesn't exist in the destination... only abc.iso. Any insight would be GREATLY appreciated...

    Here is the rsync issue example:

    You are most probably trying to save the file on VFAT partition, if this is the case then any 'short name' file i.e one that satisfies 8.3 format eg TEST.TXT will have its name changed. To change this behaviour use the -o shortname= option in the mount command. The default option 'lower' shows this behaviour. View mount's man page for other options win95,winnt and mixed.

    You are the man! I couldn't remember where I was experiencing this, but tested it all out today, and everything works well. Thanks a lot!
