Description Taneem Ahmed 2003-04-15 09:18:57 UTC
Description of problem: 
 
If I run `intltool-update --pot` inside a po directory, it reports: 
 [taneem@Ankur po]$ intltool-update --pot 
 intltool-update: Unable to determine package name. 
 Make sure to run this script inside the po directory. 
 
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable): 
 0.25-2 
 
How reproducible: 
Always 
 
Steps to Reproduce: 
1. Download a src tree with po directory 
2. cd to po directory 
3. run command `intltool-update --pot` 
     
Actual results: 
Gives the following message: 
 intltool-update: Unable to determine package name. 
 Make sure to run this script inside the po directory. 
 
Expected results: 
Create/update the pot file. 
 
Additional info: 
This works fine in RH8.x (version 0.22). Also even if the source is downloaded for intltool-0.25 
and used on a RH9 the same problem shows up. But non-RH systems works fine with 0.25 
version.

Problem is probably in perl package. I'm upgrading my RH 8.0 based computer
manually (using rpm -F ...) to RH 9. I've first updated intltool to 0.25-2 and
it works ok with perl from RH 8.0 (perl-5.8.0-55). After update perl to 5.8.0-88
(version from RH 9), intltool-update refuses to work.

Comment 2 Marcel Telka 2003-04-30 00:43:31 UTC
This is a quick workaround for the problem:

LC_ALL=C intltool-update --pot

Comment 3 Matthias Clasen 2005-04-21 05:00:45 UTC
Old versions of intltool are known to not work correctly in UTF-8 locales.
This is fixed in version 0.26 and newer.
