[text-install] Installer puts line breaks in the middle of words
Last modified: 2008-05-01 11:37:56 EDT
This is a message in the .sv.po file:
#: ../textw/lilo_text.py:18 ../textw/silo_text.py:14
"A few systems will need to pass special options to the kernel at boot time
"for the system to function properly. If you need to pass boot options to
"kernel, enter them now. If you don't need any or aren't sure, leave this "
"Negra system behvver skicka speciella flaggor till kdrnan vid uppstart fvr

"skriv in dem nu. Om du inte behvver negra, eller om du inte dr sdker, let
"fdltet vara tomt."
And this is what gets displayed by the text mode installer (with the actual
Negra system behvver skicka speciella flaggor till kdrnan vid
uppstart fvr att systemet skall fungera ordentligt. Om du behvv
er skicka sedana flaggor, skriv in dem nu. Om du inte behvver
negra, eller om du inte dr sdker, let fdltet vara tomt.
Notice the break in the middle of the word "behvver". I saw this behavior
in other longer messages (like the
"welcome to..." message) too. It would be nice if the installer didn't put
line breaks in the middle of words.
This is almost certainly due to buggy or missing locale information in glibc
Bug is still present in beta3.
We need to change the installer to use the sv_SE locale, sv_SV is invalid now.
I saw the "behvver" thing in beta4 too. Appearantly it's still an issue.
This is still happening in Pinstripe.
on LANG=es installs there are words that got sticked to the next and "-"
characters on the middle of the screen.
This is still happening in RC2.
Is this problem present in the final 7 release?
I just checked, couldn't reproduce it with Red Hat 7 gold.
