Description Andrew Martynov 2004-11-23 14:18:33 UTC
From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US; rv:1.7.5)
Gecko/20041111 Firefox/1.0

Description of problem:
Some of localized string founded in .po file does not used in GUI.

When utility started in ru_RU.UTF-8 locale some messages is in Russian
but most of them in English.

Corrected .mo file is compiled from .po file located in CVS and UI
should use localized version of strings. 

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

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. get system-config-lvm from CVS
2. prepare RPM and install it
3. set locale LANG=ru_RU.UTF-8
4. run system-config=lvm

Actual Results:  Main window has translated menus, buttons but list
items and properties of Storages is in English.

Expected Results:  Most of messages should be in Russian ( .po file
99% translated )

Additional info:

I found that binding text domain in system-config-lvm.py before using
modules resolve the problem.

import gettext
gettext.bindtextdomain(PROGNAME, "/usr/share/locale")

from renderer import volume_renderer

Based on the date this bug was created, it appears to have been reported
against rawhide during the development of a Fedora release that is no
longer maintained. In order to refocus our efforts as a project we are

maintained. If this bug remains in NEEDINFO thirty (30) days from now,
we will automatically close it.

rawhide), please change this bug to the respective version and change
the status to ASSIGNED. (If you're unable to change the bug's version
