I would have commented here ( What is the maximum allowed filename (and folder) size with eCryptfs? ), but my points were not enough. So I guess, I am forced to put up a new, old question.
What is the maximum allowed filename (and folder) size with eCryptfs?
I believe, this question is not sufficiently answered (at least not for me) in the post mentioned above. To be precise: What is meant by " Empirically, we have found that character filenames longer than 143 characters start requiring >255 characters to encrypt. So we (as eCryptfs upstream developers) typically recommend you limit your filenames to ~140 characters."
What is a filename here? Does it mean ONLY the filename+extension? Does it mean all-the-path+filename+extension?
Does it mean, that the complete path can be 140 characters AND the filename (incl. extension) can have another 140 characters?
Thanks a lot Olaf
