Description Runa Bhattacharjee 2010-04-08 05:10:13 EDT
Description of problem:

The follow two user interface messages probably contain typos, due to which they are not comprehensible for translators:

String 1:

failed to write save header to '%s'

#: src/qemu/qemu_driver.c:4695

String 2:

Failed to create domain save file '%s' statfs of all elements of path failed.


#: src/qemu/qemu_driver.c:4843


Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

Source file:

Additional Info:

These typos may also be present in rawhide.

String 1:

when libvirt is asked to save a domain state the user gives a filename,
and libvirt save soem header data and then the domain state into that file.
The error message indicate that the first step failed, libvirt could not save
the header data for this domain into the given file.

String 2:

under some condition when trying to do the save operation, libvirt need
to find out what kind of filesystem is used for the volume getting the
saved file. To do this libvirt tries the statfs() call on all parent
directories of the file, up to the root. This message indicates that none
of those alls suceeded so we are unable to find the kind of filesystem
hosting the saved data, and the save operation fails.

(In reply to comment #1)

Thank you Daniel, both the explanations were very helpful. Considering the message in string 2, would it be possible to add a separator after the filename? 

e.g.: Failed to create domain save file '%s', statfs of all elements of path failed.

Currently, a user would try to read the sentence at one go and may end up getting confused.

Fixed upstream now. Not a major issue, so just closing as UPSTREAM:
