            Bug ID: 12986
           Summary: Mtools: Error converting to codepage 850
           Product: buildroot
           Version: 2020.05
          Hardware: All
                OS: All
            Status: NEW
          Severity: normal
          Priority: P5
         Component: Other

  Target Milestone: ---

Error converting to codepage 850 Invalid argument

As described in the mtools-manual [1], codepage 850 is used by default.

>From my point of view, the config option 'BR2_PACKAGE_MTOOLS' should
automatically select 'BR2_TOOLCHAIN_GLIBC_GCONV_LIBS_COPY' to make sure that
the required gconv libraries are available on the target system.
