Description Andre Ruiz 2005-03-14 19:58:15 EST
From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US; rv:1.7.6)
Gecko/20050302 Firefox/1.0.1 Fedora/1.0.1-1.3.2

Description of problem:
This bug comes from a long date, IIRC. I remember seing it on RedHat9,
maybe before. It's kinda harmless, and maybe no one cared yet.

On line 273 of rc.sysinit, it does:

       action $"Setting clock $CLOCKDEF: `date`" date

Note that the command "date" is inside the $".." text, and so it gets
i18n'ed too. In portuguese, "date" becomes "data", and it spits an
error  on boot time:

       rc.sysinit: data: command not found

I also suspect you don't need the *two* "date" commands on that line,
just to print date on screen.


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

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1.Just reboot the machine and watch rc.sysinit run.

Actual Results:  I can see the error "rc.sysinit: data: command not
found on line 273".

Expected Results:  The expected result was to see the string "Setting
clock $CLOCKDEF: " followed by the current date and not an error.
