Description Christian Rose 2005-10-20 16:29:04 EDT
#: ../rhn_applet.glade.h:43 msgid "" "Welcome to the Red Hat Network Alert Notification Tool.\n" "\n" "This program will help you determine at a glance \n" "if your system is in need of critical software updates.\n" "\n" "Click 'Forward' below to begin configuration." Please do not use hard coded newlines in messages. 1) They make it difficult for translators, since it's difficult to estimate the correct line width to use. 2) They make it difficult for users that need accessibility, since if you use a different or bigger font, all line wrappings will be messed up. Please use automatic line wrappings instead, if possible. Please note that this is not the only message in rhn-applet that this applies to.

rhn-applet was replaced by pirut and put (package pirut) as of FC5. Only FC5 and FC6 are currently fully supported; FC3 and FC4 are supported for security fixes only. If this bug occurs in FC3 or FC4 and is a security bug, please change the product to Fedora Extras and the version to match. If you can verify that the bug exists in RHEL as well, please change the product and version appropriately. The codebase for pirut and pup is quite different, but if a similar bug exists in pirut and pup in FC5 or FC6, please change the product to pirut and the version appropriately and update the bug report. We apologize that the bug was not fixed before now. The status will be changed to NEEDINFO, and if the bug is not updated with evidence that it is a security bug or a bug that affects RHEL, it will be closed. Note that rhn-applet may still be present on upgraded systems, and in general will not function correctly on such systems. That is not a bug; anaconda does not generally erase removed packages upon upgrades.
