When creating folders using the Konsole on my C860 unix standard unix case sensitivity is not being adhered to. If I create a folder using "mkdir DM2" the folder "dm2" is returned.

How can this behavior to the standard where upper and lower case characters are distinguished?

Thanks in anticipation.

could it be that you are writing to a flash card with fat instead of ext2/ext3?

It is my understanding that in Linux, folder names with less than six(6) characters will always use lower case.

Never seen that on any linux distro I've ever used.

Just tried it out on my desktop, mkdir DM2 gives me a folder called DM2, on my C760 it works fine on the main flash, but gives lowercase dirs on FAT filesystems (SD and CF)

Maybe that's what I read.. about fat file systems on SD and CF cards. Thanks for the info.

Stubear is right. Just tried it out on my device. Thanks to you all for resolving this.

Cheers,
