smoltSendProfile fails in Swedish locale
Last modified: 2008-06-16 21:49:14 EDT
Description of problem:
Smolt fails with "IndexError: list index out of range" when used in Swedish locale.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. LANG=sv_SE.UTF-8 smoltSendProfile -p
Traceback (most recent call last):
File "/usr/bin/smoltSendProfile", line 30, in <module>
from i18n import _
File "/usr/share/smolt/client/i18n.py", line 32, in <module>
t = gettext.translation('smolt', fallback = True)
File "/usr/lib/python2.5/gettext.py", line 478, in translation
t = _translations.setdefault(key, class_(open(mofile, 'rb')))
File "/usr/lib/python2.5/gettext.py", line 180, in __init__
File "/usr/lib/python2.5/gettext.py", line 314, in _parse
plural = v.split('plural=')
IndexError: list index out of range
<printout of profile information>
Confirmed, I'm seeing that too.
With Bulgarian locale 'smoltSendProfile --help' dies too:
[root@mr700 ~]# smoltSendProfile --help
Traceback (most recent call last):
File "/usr/bin/smoltSendProfile", line 78, in <module>
(opts, args) = parser.parse_args()
File "/usr/lib/python2.5/optparse.py", line 1378, in parse_args
stop = self._process_args(largs, rargs, values)
File "/usr/lib/python2.5/optparse.py", line 1418, in _process_args
File "/usr/lib/python2.5/optparse.py", line 1493, in _process_long_opt
option.process(opt, value, values, self)
File "/usr/lib/python2.5/optparse.py", line 782, in process
self.action, self.dest, opt, value, values, parser)
File "/usr/lib/python2.5/optparse.py", line 804, in take_action
File "/usr/lib/python2.5/optparse.py", line 1648, in print_help
UnicodeDecodeError: 'ascii' codec can't decode byte 0xd0 in position 187:
ordinal not in range(128)
If I set LANG to 'en_US.UTF8' or just 'C' it works.
Bulgarian translation should be fixed with the most recent version. the
sv_SE.UTF-8 issue is actually a problem in the translation. Sorry its taken so
long to fix these things Im' pretty clueless when it comes to translations.
This message is a reminder that Fedora 7 is nearing the end of life. Approximately 30 (thirty) days from now Fedora will stop maintaining and issuing updates for Fedora 7. It is Fedora's policy to close all bug reports from releases that are no longer maintained. At that time this bug will be closed as WONTFIX if it remains open with a Fedora 'version' of '7'.
Package Maintainer: If you wish for this bug to remain open because you plan to fix it in a currently maintained version, simply change the 'version' to a later Fedora version prior to Fedora 7's end of life.
Bug Reporter: Thank you for reporting this issue and we are sorry that we may not be able to fix it before Fedora 7 is end of life. If you would still like to see this bug fixed and are able to reproduce it against a later version of Fedora please change the 'version' of this bug. If you are unable to change the version, please add a comment here and someone will do it for you.
Although we aim to fix as many bugs as possible during every release's lifetime, sometimes those efforts are overtaken by events. Often a more recent Fedora release includes newer upstream software that fixes bugs or makes them obsolete. If possible, it is recommended that you try the newest available Fedora distribution to see if your bug still exists.
Please read the Release Notes for the newest Fedora distribution to make sure it will meet your needs:
The process we are following is described here: http://fedoraproject.org/wiki/BugZappers/HouseKeeping
Fedora 7 changed to end-of-life (EOL) status on June 13, 2008.
Fedora 7 is no longer maintained, which means that it will not
receive any further security or bug fix updates. As a result we
are closing this bug.
If you can reproduce this bug against a currently maintained version
of Fedora please feel free to reopen this bug against that version.
Thank you for reporting this bug and we are sorry it could not be fixed.
