Description of problem:
There is a little typo in the init script.

"Schnittstelle eth0 hochfahren:  "
"Loopback Schnittstelle hochfahren:  "

There is a space too much after ":". Additionally, it should be
"Schnittstelle lo" or alternatively "Loopback-Schnittstelle".

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

The FC3 translations look ok to me:
msgid "Bringing up loopback interface: "
msgstr "Loopback Schnittstelle hochfahren: "


msgid "Bringing up interface $i: "
msgstr "Schnittstelle $i hochfahren: "

What's the exact version of your initscripts package ?

> msgstr "Loopback Schnittstelle hochfahren: "

Should be msgstr "Schnittstelle lo hochfahren: ", I'd say.
The exact version is initscripts-7.93.5-1
Comment 4 Karsten Hopp 2004-11-15 08:56:43 EST
"Schnittstelle lo hochfahren: " vs. ""Loopback Schnittstelle
hochfahren: " matches the english text differences between ""Bringing
up interface $i:" and "Bringing up loopback interface: ". Both
solutions are valid german and it's up to the personal preference of
the translator to select one.

But this still doesn't explain why you're getting two spaces after the
translated text. Please check what's in your message catalog with
'msgunfmt /usr/share/locale/de/LC_MESSAGES/initscripts.mo'
Comment 5 Florian Effenberger 2004-11-15 15:14:47 EST
[root@floeff2 ~]# msgunfmt
/usr/share/locale/de/LC_MESSAGES/initscripts.mo | grep Loopback
msgstr "Loopback Schnittstelle hochfahren: "
msgstr "Loopback Gerät $dev herunterfahren: "
msgstr "Loopback Schnittstelle herunterfahren: "
msgstr "Loopback-Dateisystem $match aushängen: "
msgstr "Loopback-Dateisysteme aushängen (erneuter Versuch):"
msgstr "Loopback-Dateisysteme aushängen: "

Looks pretty good. Maybe there is a typo in another script? I have
this too-many-spaces-error in more init scripts (cf. my other bug
