Description Dawid Gajownik 2006-02-15 00:56:01 UTC
Description of problem:
"Web" word is not translatable, because it's hardcoded in the source file:

[rpm-build@X anaconda-10.92.4]$ grep netServerPrompt -A 5 -r ./loader2/net.c
char *netServerPrompt = \
    N_("Please enter the following information:\n"
       "\n"
       "    o the name or IP number of your %s server\n"
       "    o the directory on that server containing\n"
       "      %s for your architecture\n");
[rpm-build@X anaconda-10.92.4]$ grep netServerPrompt -rn .
./loader2/nfsinstall.c:52:    buf = sdupprintf(_(netServerPrompt), "NFS",
getProductName());
./loader2/net.h:31:extern char *netServerPrompt;
./loader2/net.c:47:char *netServerPrompt = \
./loader2/urls.c:261:        buf = sdupprintf(_(netServerPrompt), "FTP",
getProductName());
./loader2/urls.c:266:        buf = sdupprintf(_(netServerPrompt), "Web",
getProductName());
[rpm-build@X anaconda-10.92.4]$

In Polish "Web" sounds strange a bit. It would be better to translate it to "WWW".

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
anaconda-10.92.4-1

How reproducible:
Choose installation method via HTTP.

This has been this way for years at this point.  We use web consistently in
other parts of the text, so for FC5, I think we're better off leaving it as-is
and doing a good fix for FC6.

Comment 3 A S Alam 2006-08-31 09:56:27 UTC
"Web" is changed to "WWW". so Bug is fixed. Tested with following version

anaconda-11.1.0.86-1
