creating grammar and english
« on: December 21, 2007, 05:49:26 am »
This is humbling. I am trying to correct grammar and english in the text windows. However, there is one pas.sage of text that is driving me crazy. When you click on DHCP tab a window of text displays saying the following.

At least, an interface must set as staticto configure the DHCP service on it. To do so, change interfaces configuration in network module

As you can see 'staticto' sh should be 'static to'. Also, drop At least and start sentence with An interface.

greping finds this test in /usr/share/perl5/EBox/DHCP/Composite/General.pm. Here is the statement:

"{
    return __x('An interface must be set as static '
               . 'to configure the DHCP service on it. '
               . 'To do so, change {openhref}interfaces '
               . 'configuration{closehref} in network module',
              openhref  => '<a href="/ebox/Network/Ifaces">',
              closehref => '</a>');
}
"

As you can see, I've made the changes but no matter how many times I refresh the screen it does not change. What am I doing wrong??

thanks

You must restart the Apache-perl daemon by invoking this command as root:

$ invoke-rc.d ebox apache restart

Thanks for your reporting this typo.

sixstone: thanks for the reply. I figured it out last night after I posted. One of the ways I want to contribute, besides helping people here on the forum, is by testing and correcting the grammar and english. As I work my way thru system I will feed back the changes.

Not sure how you would like me to submit changes. Let me know best way.

Hi baboo,

It would be really cool if you can help us check grammar and English. Currently we don't have any English native speaker in our team, so that effort is highly appreciated.

As for submitting changes, you can either use this forum, our mailing list, or send patches. Whatever you feel more comfortable with.

Thanks a lot

no problem - happy to do it.
 
I tried the command that sixstone posted above, but my changes don't take place. Any suggestions?


BTW, for not having native english speakers you guys are doing just fine. I am teaching myself spanish, so maybe you guys can help me with that. :)

thanks

You have to indicate apache-perl processes to reread the Perl modules. Drastically:

Code: [Select]
# pkill apache

You may go the i18n page [1] to check the English strings if you like ;).

thanks - having it working. It actually took rebooting the box.
.
Overall the english is really good. There are a few places that need some editing. I will be posting those today
