Comment 1 raxet 2003-09-07 00:30:40 EDT
If I do a rm -f .rm -f .rhn-applet.c*, then a rhn-applet-tui

I get the same here, but rather if I execute rhn-applet-gui the following error

Traceback (most recent call last):
  File "/usr/bin/rhn-applet-gui", line 41, in ?
  File "/usr/bin/rhn-applet-gui", line 37, in main
    applet = rhn_applet.rhnApplet()
  File "/usr/bin/../share/rhn/rhn_applet/rhn_applet.py", line 143, in __init__
    self.session = gnome.ui.gnome_master_client()
AttributeError: 'module' object has no attribute 'gnome_master_client'
Comment 2 Daniel Veillard 2003-09-07 05:50:41 EDT
raxet, you're mixing problems, yours is a duplicate of #103871, go there
for the solution.

The problem of this bug report is UTF8 localized strings being
casted to ASCII, and I guess related to the new translated strings 
when operating in the French locales.

Comment 3 Féliciano Matias 2003-09-07 15:51:42 EDT
> when operating in the French locales.

I miss this point. The problem append with LANG=fr_FR.UTF-8 but not with
en_GT.UTF-8 or C.
Comment 4 Daniel Veillard 2003-09-07 16:38:51 EDT
Bingo ... I guessed without testing :-)

Simply because with LANG=fr_FR.UTF-8 the translated string uses non-ascii
character, and that not the case for "en" or "C".
The problem is a conversion from an internationalized string to an ASCII
string. Python raises an exception, I need to get it converted ...

Comment 5 Féliciano Matias 2003-09-11 16:08:38 EDT
It appeart to be fixed in rhn-applet-2.0.10-6.
Tested with LANG=fr_FR.UTF-8 and LANG=C.
