#: ../src/soundcard.py:300
msgid ""
"Automatic detection of the sound card did not work.  Audio will not be "
"available on the system.\n"
"You can inspect /root/scsound.log and file a new bug\n"
"at http://bugzilla.redhat.com.\n"
"Please click OK to continue."

Please do not hard code file names into translateable messages.

1) Hard coding means that all translations will need to be updated should the
location or file name change at any time in the future.
2) The file name and location should never need any translation, and placing a
file name and location in the message always means that there will be a danger
of it being accidentally mistranslated by a translator.

Please use a *printf-style approach instead, placing the location and file name
inside a specifier.
