Description Pedro Miguel Marques Morais 2003-03-28 18:13:18 UTC
In /etc/init.d/iptables lines 173 and 184 there are $ chars missing,
so the string are unstranslatable.

Comment 1 Thomas Woerner 2003-06-17 15:19:13 UTC
Please be more verbose.

Comment 2 Pedro Miguel Marques Morais 2003-06-18 12:23:44 UTC
To translate a string in shell script using gettext you have to prefix it with $. 
For example "String" will not be translated; $"String" will. 
On lines 173 and 184 of the iptables initscript of the version in RHL9 you have 
to add a $ to the string you will find there. 
Got it now? :-)
