Description Miloslav Trmac 2003-05-01 11:02:12 EDT
Please allow NLS support in e2fsprogs. It is as easy
as passing --enable-nls to configure and adding
the usual %find_lang stuff.

This does not create problems when /usr is not available,
fsck et al will just talk in English in that case.
Also, the static binary of e2fsck has about the same
size whether NLS is enabled or not.

I don't know whether this could case problems in case
e2fsprogs were compiled with dietlibc for some rescue
environment, dietlibc is not mentioned in the SRPM

Comment 1 Miloslav Trmac 2003-05-05 07:48:09 EDT
In the following version of e2fsprogs, NLS will be enabled by default, so
passing --enable-nls to configure won't be needed.
Comment 2 Florian La Roche 2003-05-08 09:00:02 EDT
nls still seems to be pretty broken. I have managed to build a rpm, but have
not tested it yet: http://people.redhat.com/laroche/

sorry about that file in POTFILES. I have actually sent an equivalent patch
upstream, but forgotten about it. 

I'll check that Czech translation in 1.34 (once it is released) works
correctly and close the bug then.
Comment 4 Miloslav Trmac 2003-08-07 14:34:27 EDT
Works well enough. The Czech translation is fubared, but that's my fault and
I'll solve that upstream.
