Description Timo Trinks 2007-04-05 02:10:02 UTC
Description of problem:
When using virt-manager in languages with special characters (inc. German,
Spanish, Portuguese, etc.) to major issues occur that currently keep us
from taking necessary localised screenshots for the Virtualisation Guide (due on
 10/04/07). The two major issues are:

* special characters are not displayed properly in the menues, instead a
questionmark appears
* some formatting tags are displayed in the gui

(see attachments)

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:
run "LANG=es_ES.UTF-8 virt-manager" or "LANG=de_DE.UTF-8 virt-manager"

Steps to Reproduce:
Actual results:

Expected results:

Additional info:

-> po-files are correct, not a translation issue
-> .pot-file needs to be updated, package needs to be rebuilt with the latest

The new  virt-manager-0.4.0-1.el5  RPM has been built into dist-5E-qu-candidate.
This release includes the latest translations done by the Fedora i18n team as of
2007/05/09  and it looks like the two errors in the attached screenshots have
been resolved.
