rhn registration warning

Description of problem:

As seen in attached [rhn_warning.png], on first boot with no active network (and perhaps in other situations, ie. if you simply decline to register at this point), you are directed to the software update tool to register with RHN later, with this text:

"You may access this registration tool by running Software Updater in the Applications > System Tools menu."

(note also, it's actually called 'Software Update', not 'Software Updater' as shown in this attachment.)

Also, as seen in the attached [menu.png], not only is the Software Updater (sic) *not* in the Applications > System Tools menu as directed (rather it is actually in System > Administration), running it alone does not appear to register you; one has to run the 'RHN Register' app first, also found in System > Administration.

I believe these instructions should be reviewed for accuracy.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

6.0 Beta 2 Refresh - Server x86 

How reproducible:

Install the refresh and compare text to actual menu entries.

Steps to Reproduce:

1. Reboot after installing.
2. Read RHN registration/update instructions.
3. Compare to actual menu entries on desktop.
Actual results:

Pointed to wrong menu (and incorrectly spelled item). Running System Update doesn't seem to register you, rather you need to run RHN Register first.

Expected results:

Correct name for Software Update tool, correct menu locations, and link to correct menu entry required for RHN registration.

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. **

New text reads:

To keep your system updated, secure, and supported, please register this system at your earliest convenience.

You may access RHN registration tool by running RHN Registration in
the System > Administration menu.
You may access software update tool by running Software Update in
the System > Administration menu.

Comment 6 Scott Radvan 2010-07-26 22:23:52 UTC
I think there should be some extra "the"s:

You may access the RHN registration tool by running RHN Registration...


You may access the software update tool by running Software Update...

Comment 7 Milan Zázrivec 2010-07-27 08:39:32 UTC
Added the missing 'the's:
