Uppdaterar       8 Package(s)         
Tar bort         0 Package(s)

Comment 1 Xavier Conde 2009-05-21 08:29:26 UTC

I'm having a similar issue with "yum erase" command, when uninstalling a package, there's a message in Catalan (ca) that says 

"S'està esborran"

whereas it should be 

"S'està esborrant"

but I've not been able to find the incorrect string in the latest catalan yum PO file in Transifex, see:


Thanks in advance!

Comment 2 Thomas Spura 2009-05-21 17:07:21 UTC
For the Catalan issue:

I found it in:


Comment 3 Göran Uddeborg 2009-05-21 18:28:48 UTC
Yum does not accept updates via transifex, but I'll file a separate bugzilla with a new translation.

Comment 4 Daniel Lindgren 2009-05-21 20:14:09 UTC
Checked the file submitted in bug 502075 and the string "Transaktionssamanfattning\n" is still misspelled (only one "m"). Should be "Transaktionssammanfattning\n".

Comment 5 Xavier Conde 2009-05-22 08:50:05 UTC
Hi Göran,

in the case of catalan, I've checked translation file and it's ok, but the string shown isn't.

I've created an .mo file from my translation and replaced with the .mo file distributed, wrong string is shown still. Is yum using any other contexts for loading gettext strings?

Thanks in advance!

How did that happen?!?  That was the first thing I fixed.

Oh, well, I'll try again.

As far as I know, there is nothing special with yum.  When testing the Swedish translation, I've placed the compiled, mo, file as /usr/share/locale/sv/LC_MESSAGES/yum.mo, and that works for me.  If you replace /usr/share/locale/ca/LC_MESSAGES/yum.mo with your new mo file, it is strange if you don't get the new translations.

You are sure you put it in the right place?  It is easy to make silly mistakes!  (As can be seen in comment 6! :-)

Comment 8 Piotr Drąg 2009-06-13 04:11:01 UTC
Ping? Any progress?

Comment 9 Göran Uddeborg 2009-06-13 21:29:00 UTC
Oh, I should of course have handled this.  The corrected translation is forwarded upstreams according to bug 502312.  I'll check shortly if it got into Fedora 11.

Comment 10 Piotr Drąg 2009-06-13 21:49:26 UTC
According to git, it hasn't yet. We have to wait for yum update to version 3.2.24. Current version in updates-testing is 3.2.23.

Comment 11 Piotr Drąg 2009-09-04 22:24:10 UTC
Could you please check the issue with this package for F11?


Comment 12 Daniel Lindgren 2009-09-05 06:01:12 UTC
Doesn't look like it's fixed:

As you can see, there are still english strings mixed in, "Transaction Summary", "Install/Upgrade", "Package(s)".

Comment 13 Göran Uddeborg 2009-09-05 14:39:22 UTC
But that is a different behaviour than before.  Now "Transaction Summary" isn't translated at all.  Before there was a misspelling in the translation.  And Install/Upgrade used to be translated.

Most likely, there has been developments since my last translation, and it needs to be updated.  I'll have a look at it.

Comment 14 Göran Uddeborg 2009-09-05 15:12:59 UTC
I've submitted an updated translation.  The current instructions is to use the upstreams ticket system for the purpose: http://yum.baseurl.org/ticket/238

Comment 15 Piotr Drąg 2009-10-16 22:45:36 UTC
Updated translation has been committed upstream.


Comment 16 Piotr Drąg 2009-11-22 20:43:22 UTC
Is this issue fixed in yum-3.2.25?

Comment 17 Göran Uddeborg 2009-11-22 21:48:54 UTC
Yes, it seems it got into 3.2.25 in F12:

22:41 mimmi$ rpm -q yum
22:39 mimmi$ sudo yum upgrade selinux-policy-targeted
Installerar       0 Paket
Uppdaterar        6 Paket
