Using fakeroot for a tool that edits your lilo.conf doesn't make much sense.

Read it again and more carefully ;) fakeroot was only an example to prevent "real" root rights.

Yes indeed, however changes will be minimal. When the merge is done, appropriate instructions will be posted. :)

New pot file is updated on svn.

If you already started translating with the previous lilosetup.pot file you need to merge your *.po file with the new lilosetup.pot file with the help of the following command:

Code: Select all

msgmerge -U fr.po lilosetup.pot
Of course, adapt to your locale name convention... fr.po for French, de.po for German, da.po for Danish etc...

If you want to help translating LiloSetup in your own language but never translated programs before, you may find the following instructions helpful. These were specifically written for SalixTools but of course are adaptable to LiloSetup & any other programs being translated with the help of gettext.

Thank you.

What, scared, me?? :D Well finally got around to testing your new version and I've got to say I really like the arrows to move the rankings. This makes it much easier. I did do an actual install of the new lilo setup because I needed to change the ranking of my OS's. I had no problems.

Translation status:
French -> Completed
Greek -> Started
German -> Started (but now needs a new translator to complete & eventually correct damnagehack's translation , anyone interested? )

Nearly the half done. But you should verify all translations again.
