Comment 2 RHEL Product and Program Management 2010-07-22 06:57:52 UTC
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. **

Comment 3 David Cantrell 2010-07-22 14:05:26 UTC
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 localization-services@redhat.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.

Comment 7 Kenichi Takemura 2010-08-19 03:06:32 UTC
I used virt-install to verify this bug.

Seems still to exist.

Can you help me to check?

Comment 9 Martin Banas 2010-08-24 12:46:15 UTC
I can see the same error as Kenichi Takemura, resolution 800x600. Moving back to assigned

Comment 10 Denise Dumas 2010-08-24 13:24:07 UTC
Moving to 6.1, does not meet blocker criteria

Comment 11 Ankit Patel 2010-09-01 11:36:49 UTC
Hi Ani,

Is it possible to shorten the translations shown in the attachment #433589 [details] ?


Comment 12 RHEL Product and Program Management 2010-11-16 00:49:29 UTC
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.

Comment 13 Martin Gracik 2010-11-18 13:56:04 UTC
This module comes from rhn-client-tools, it implements that dialog window in question, so I'm changing the component to rhn-client-tools.

Comment 14 Ankit Patel 2010-12-10 12:47:47 UTC
Ani ping.

Comment 15 Ani Peter 2010-12-17 07:29:29 UTC
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.

Comment 16 Ankit Patel 2010-12-17 09:19:09 UTC
Thanks Ani.

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.


Comment 17 Miroslav Suchý 2011-01-19 13:50:58 UTC
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.

Comment 18 Miroslav Suchý 2011-01-19 15:17:20 UTC
If I replace
<property name="width_chars">-1</property>
<property name="width_request">600</property>
<property name="width_request">460</property>

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.
