My pre-EAFS filesystem gives errors on filenames longer than 14 chars (Old Sco Unix)

This is an ancient post with no relevance to modern systems.

There is a tunable kernel parameter, ETRUNC, that controls this behaviour. If set to 1, the kernel will silently truncates filenames to 14 characters. If set to 0, the kernel returns ENAMETOOLONG, in accordance with POSIX.
