Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 801068
Spelling inconsistencies in Installation Guide
Last modified: 2013-06-17 01:43:09 EDT
Description of problem:
"Disk" and "disc" spellings are inconsistent on the page and throughout the document. I know this is definitely a niggle but each time I see it it jumps out. I understand there are differences between optical vs magnetic media, but this is not the case here:
13.2.2. Preparing a driver disc
You can create a driver update disc on CD or DVD.
18.104.22.168. Creating a driver update disk on CD or DVD
I.e., the "driver update disc" and "driver update disk" here refer to the same thing.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
Thanks for reporting this. I've corrected the discrepancy you identified between 13.2.2 and 22.214.171.124.
I searched the rest of the document and found a few other instances that needed to be corrected in the same vein.
However, sections 6.3 and 6.4 use 'disk' for two reasons that I've determined are valid if not ideal. Firstly, anaconda and the screenshots provided refer to 'driver disk', and secondly, 'disk' in this context refers collectively to all media, not just optical disks, which would necessitate a change to 'disc' (including explicitly in 6.3.3: "Insert the driver update disk that you created on CD, DVD, or USB flash drive").
There are also erroneous references to a 'Windows installation disk' in section 39.2. However, the instances are so numerous that it would cause a lot of translation work for a section that is not pertinent to most installations.
This bug has been verified and implemented for 6.4, so I am changing the status to CLOSED CURRENTRELEASE.
