Description Milan Kerslager 2000-07-28 08:48:37 UTC
There are tree bugs:

1) locale isn't called at the begginnig of the program
2) variable CATALOGS in po/Makefile is commented out
3) SPEC file doesn't include .mo files in /usr/share/locale/*/*/*

Without this, traslator's work is for...

Patch for 1) and 2) [5 lines of code] submited below.

Comment 2 Milan Kerslager 2000-07-28 09:28:59 UTC
During startup there is no $LANG or some other variable so kudzu pop-up in
english language only. The safest way is to include '. /etc/profile.d/lang.sh'
at the begginnig of the /etc/init.d/kudzu script. This script (lang.sh) is safe
and do the 'export' stuff exactly only for the needed variables.

I do not recommned to set up locale variables to master script (eg.
/etc/rc.d/rc) because there may be some side effect...
