Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 82747
po/Makefile.in.in broken, redhat-menus.pot doesn't get rebuilt properly
Last modified: 2008-05-01 11:38:05 EDT
Description of problem:
When I was investigating where some translations had vanished, I found that it
doesnt seem like redhat-menus.pot gets rebuilt properly by make. To my untrained
eye the $GENPOT variable needs a definition in Makefile.am.am
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. use msgfmt --statistics to find out that redhat-menus.pot has 70 messsages
2. find out that no.po has 87 messages with the same command
3. try to rebuild redhat-menus.po with 'make update-po' only to find out that it
breaks in multiple ways and redhat-menus.pot remains unchanged
4. try '../intltool-update --gettext-package redhat-menus --pot' and notice that
redhat-menus.pot indeed gets rebuilt and now has 87 msgs.
The result of all this is that the diffing messages doesn't get translated by
the translators since the don't know that they are there.
I've seen this problem before, I'm trying to remember how I fixed it.
Hmm, just re-running autogen.sh seems to fix it. I'll commit the new .pot
to CVS. Thanks.
