unable to load NLS charset cp437(nls_cp437)
Posted on 1998-10-05
I've just upgraded my kernel from 2.0.31 to 2.0.35 and when I do 'mount /dev/hda1 /mnt' (/dev/hda1 is my C drive which type is FAT), I got a message like this:
'unable to load NLS charset cp437(nls_cp437)'
I suspect this is because of kernel configuration.
If I want to change my kernel configuration, do I need to build my kernel again? Can I just change a specific configuration without changing the other configuration that has been set up correctly? I don't want to configure the whole thing again because it's very confusing.
Also, when I build the kernel, I set the kernel so that it won't support the sound card, but as soon as I get a new card, I will change the configuration so that it will support my card. Same question as before, can I change just sound configuration in kernel without changing my old other configuration?
Last question: How can I figure out my sound card irq, dma, and port? Someone tell me to check win95 configuration for my sound card, but I don't have win95. I tried using sndconfig utility, but I got core dumped.
Please tell me what should I do to fix this. Thanks.
