Comment 1 Jeremy Katz 2004-10-06 17:56:59 UTC
For the network one, I can make the box for network devices a little
bit smaller.  For the GRUB screen, there are *no* widgets that I can
change the size of.

Any chance of adjusting translations to use shorter phrases for any of it?

Comment 2 Leon Ho 2004-10-11 06:22:02 UTC
Some of the translation on grub screen should be shorten. if you are
available, please rebuilt along with latest po file so that we can
confirm. Thanks Jeremy.

Comment 3 Jeremy Katz 2004-10-19 21:35:39 UTC
Should be rebuitl for a while now.

Comment 4 Lawrence Lim 2004-11-18 09:53:47 UTC
Test anaconda- in dist-4E for all 5 indic locale and noticed
that bn, gu and ta does not display properly. 

Jeremy, would you like me to create a bug for each locale or can I
group them into this bug?

bn_IN customise packages

A whole line which provide the user with the option to customise packages to be
installed is missing. In addition, the "Next" button gets deactivated (I cant
click on next with my mouse). The workaround and to click at the lower half of
the "Next" button.

ta_IN boot loader

The first button found at the top left corner of the screen appear to be cut

Comment 12 Jeremy Katz 2004-11-18 13:42:10 UTC
These are all going to need to be fixed within the translations,
either by shortening phrases, adding line breaks (eg with the disk
druid screen), or some other way.  

There's only so much space on the screen :/

Comment 13 Lawrence Lim 2004-11-19 00:25:20 UTC
Thanks Jeremy. In that case, I will reassign the bug to Sarah. 
She will wave her magic wand and makes things better. :)

Comment 14 Leon Ho 2004-11-22 04:44:09 UTC

problem for gu has been fixed. If not, could the new screenshots be

Comment 19 Lawrence Lim 2004-12-10 03:50:28 UTC
Please let me know when all the updates are completed, so we can
reassign the bug back to Jeremy for a final rebuild.


Comment 20 Sarah Wang 2004-12-10 04:22:47 UTC
Both bn.po and gu.po have been modified to shorten the translation
string. Please proceed with final rebuild.


Comment 21 Lawrence Lim 2004-12-10 04:28:16 UTC
Could you please incorporate the updated .po files, if you are going
to rebuild a new package? 


Comment 22 Jeremy Katz 2004-12-10 04:34:18 UTC
If there's a new bug that qualifies as a blocker filed, the changes
will get incorporated.  Otherwise, they'll get in at U1. 

(I somewhat expect there will be another anaconda build as I'm just
not lucky enough to not have that be the case :)

MODIFIED, any anaconda > will include the fixes.

Comment 23 Jay Turner 2005-01-14 12:01:20 UTC
anaconda- made it into the latest RC, so closing this out.
