Can you please fix the translation in a future RHEL 5 release so the character user has to enter matches the one that is displayed in the prompt (replace "y" with "o").
Comment 3 Bryn M. Reeves 2011-01-14 11:47:33 EST
Fixed in 6.0 so should be addressed by the planned 5.7 rebase.
Comment 4 Bryn M. Reeves 2011-04-07 15:33:34 EDT
Looking at the fr sos.po in CVS this seems to be fixed already. Please re-open if this is still an issue.
Comment 5 David Kutálek 2011-06-29 05:00:32 EDT
Unfortunately this is not fixed, really:

# rpm -q sos
sos-1.7-9.54.el5
# LANG=fr sosreport -o cluster

sosreport (version 1.7)

This utility will collect some detailed  information about the
hardware and  setup of your  Red Hat Enterprise Linux  system.
The information is collected and an archive is  packaged under
/tmp, which you can send to a support representative.
Red Hat will use this information for diagnostic purposes ONLY
and it will be considered confidential information.

This process may take a while to complete.
No changes will be made to your system.

Press ENTER to continue, or CTRL-C to quit.

Un ou plusieurs plugins ont détecté un problème avec votre configuration.
Prière de vérifier les messages suivants:

cluster:
    * required module is not loaded: dlm
    * service cman is not running
    * service cman is not started in default runlevel
    * service rgmanager is not running
    * service rgmanager is not started in default runlevel
    * cluster node is not quorate
    * one or more nodes have manual fencing agent configured (data integrity is not guaranteed)
    * one or more nfs export do not have a fsid attribute set.

It is wrong in sos.po in sos-1.7.tar.gz and not fixed by any patch.
