This issue has been proposed when we are only considering blocker
issues in the current Red Hat Enterprise Linux release.
** If you would still like this issue considered for the current
release, ask your support representative to file as a blocker on
your behalf. Otherwise ask that it be considered for the next
Red Hat Enterprise Linux release. **
This is a problem with the translation information for the language you are using. It is too large, causing the window to grow beyond the screen size. Filing a translation request via email@example.com. Closing this bug since the translators track their issues via a different system.

Please check this, it's working fine with firstboot-1.110.7-1.el6.
I used virt-install to verify this bug.
Seems still to exist.
Can you help me to check?

I can see the same error as Kenichi Takemura, resolution 800x600. Moving back to assigned
Moving to 6.1, does not meet blocker criteria
Is it possible to shorten the translations shown in the attachment #433589 [details] ?
This request was evaluated by Red Hat Product Management for inclusion
in a Red Hat Enterprise Linux maintenance release. Product Management has
requested further review of this request by Red Hat Engineering, for potential
inclusion in a Red Hat Enterprise Linux Update release for currently deployed
products. This request is not yet committed for inclusion in an Update release.
This module comes from rhn-client-tools, it implements that dialog window in question, so I'm changing the component to rhn-client-tools.
Have shortend the translations and committed upstream and downstream:
However the issue is not fixed yet. On testing I noticed that its working well on normal resolution. But on this particular resolution what happens is, for Malayalam, the messages on the screen like in screenshot appears in four lines. Whereas in all other languages it works well and fits correctly in two lines.
I have checked languages other Malayalam too and found similar issue exist with almost all of them. It's not a translation problem that we can solve. It has something to do with the width of the text appears in the dialog box that appears on the screen.
Requesting developers and/or i18n engineers to look at it.
Note to myself. In locale en_US has this window size 468x434. In ml_IN it has size 586x640.
Therefore if you have screen height 600px (probably some netbook) you are unable to reach those buttons.
If I replace
make the size of window 646 x 470 (ml_IN) resp. 646 x 427 (en_US).
So it gain more on width (where is enought space) and lost on height.
commited to spacewalk.git as commit 62fdbf568bfcf3bf7ad646d4aa52987ba30cd05d
cherry picked to satellite.git as commit 2ca7e13c93616acfceeb3a5840c3db21cb5f2073
Resolution reduce verified in rhn-setup-1.0.0-48.el6.noarch.
