Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 81035
Config file contains invalid localized entries
Last modified: 2008-05-01 11:38:04 EDT
Description of problem:
Demonstrated in LANG=cs_CZ.UTF-8 :
The authentication combo box contains "user" at start, but all
entries in the list are localized (UZIVATEL, SDILENI,...).
Similarly the encrypt passwords box below contains "no", but
provides choices ANO and NE.
When a change is made, the generated smb.conf contains
the *localized* strings, which are not valid values.
This prevents samba startup.
Oops. I will look at this now.
I can't quite decide what is the correct thing to do. I think that I could make
it so that the choices in the UI are translated but the English values would be
written to the file. However, is that the correct thing to do? As a user,
would you expect to see those options translated?
I've come up with a fix that makes the strings in the UI translated but the
values in the smb.conf file is in English. I also replaced the GtkCombo widgets
with GtkOptionMenus, which is more correct.
Should be fixed in redhat-config-samba-1.0.0-4 in Rawhide. QA, please verify.
There is a stack of 64 bugs that have been in Modified state for a long period
of time. I am closing these as Rawhide now. If you find that the issue is not
fixed, please reopen this report.
