Comment 6 Chester Cheng 2008-02-27 07:32:54 UTC
I suspect that the .pot file is required to be updated by developer.
Dave, could you tell us which language did you use?

Comment 7 Chester Cheng 2008-02-27 07:40:45 UTC
Confirmed that the .pot file is required to be updated.  See translation
progress at:

Comment 8 David Lehman 2008-02-27 16:21:18 UTC
There are no changes between the POT file I just generated locally and the one
in CVS, meaning there are no new strings that require translation since the last
update on 13 September 2007.

The only generally up-to-date languages that have not been updated since the
last new strings appeared (on 2007/09/13) are uk, sk, ru, pa, lv, hu, da, zh_TW,
bs. Perhaps we do not need those languages?

Comment 9 Ankit Patel 2008-02-28 07:24:31 UTC
Hi Dave,

Can you please provide a screenshot, which is showing in english... So, we could
identify the problem.


Comment 10 David Lehman 2008-02-28 15:59:28 UTC
I do not have a screen shot, but here is the relevant entry from the POT file:

#: ../src/system-config-kdump.py:320
#, python-format
msgid ""
"WARNING: xen kdump support requires a non-xen %s RPM to perform actual crash "
"dump capture. Please be sure you have the non-xen %s RPM of the same version "
"as your xen kernel installed."
msgstr ""

Created attachment 296294 [details]
system-config-kdump is not fully localized

Hi, I have a screen shot here.
I download system-config-kdump's po files from two places:
1. http://translate.fedoraproject.org/module/system-config-kdump
2. :ext:cvs.devel.redhat.com:/cvs/dist/rpms/system-config-kdump/

and in both places (I used zh_TW.po for example), the entries of the English
being shown in the screenshot are translated, but not appeared in
system-config-kdump.  Maybe a rebuild will improve this situation?

Comment 12 Ankit Patel 2008-02-29 06:26:14 UTC
Hi Dave,

1. We support only 23 languages in house, which are as.po, bn_IN.po, de.po,
es.po, fr.po, gu.po, hi.po, it.po, ja.po, kn.po, ko.po, ml.po, mr.po, or.po,
pa.po, pt_BR.po, ru.po, si.po, ta.po, te.po, ur.po, zh_CN.po, zh_TW.po.
2. Currently only 4 languages out of these are incomplete, which are pa.po,
ru.po, si.po, zh_TW.po (So, we can get them translated anytime you want)
3. Screenshot attached (https://bugzilla.redhat.com/attachment.cgi?id=296294) by
Chester, shows untranslated message, even though it's translated. That means
*Rebuild* of the package is required with all latest translation.

Comment 13 David Lehman 2008-02-29 16:58:21 UTC
I found the problem. It is a programming error on my part that is preventing the
strings from getting translated. I have a fix and will check it in to CVS shortly.

Incidentally, the same error was preventing several other warnings from being
displayed in translated form.

Comment 14 Denise Dumas 2008-02-29 18:31:27 UTC
Because this is widespread, we'd like to get this in 5.2 as an exception.

Comment 16 David Lehman 2008-03-19 23:47:27 UTC
This is an easy fix. I've verified that the code change is sufficient to enable
display of the existing translated text, so no further effort is necessary on
the part of the translation team other than to verify the fix if they like.

The code change is trivial and can easily be fixed along with the other
s-c-kdump bugs currently slated for 5.2.

Comment 17 David Lehman 2008-03-20 15:54:50 UTC
Fixed in system-config-kdump-1.0.14-1.el5.
