View Full Version : [ubuntu] Minor bug report

January 9th, 2009, 05:19 AM
Hi guys, I need some direction on where/how to report this. I have a very minor "bug", which is just a misspelling in a pop-up dialog box. This is in 8.04 Workstation, and is easy to duplicate:

If you are running an apt-get via Terminal, and you then go into the Add/Remove Package Manager, and attempt to install something, it will pop up an error stating "Unable to get exclusive lock" and this is expected, because I am running another install in the background. the typo in that dialog is a missing space.. "This usually means that another package management application (like apt-get or aptitude) isalready running." the typo is the missing space between the words "is already". I know this is very very minor, but being a big proponent of the community effort, i know it's the little things that count!

There is a guide here, http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?t=1011078, just check to make sure it hasn't already been reported.

Thanks Tim, I was able to find that this has already been reported in https://bugs.launchpad.net/bugs/216426 and is marked as "Fix Commited" which I assume means it will be fixed in the next revision. I dont happen to have an install of 8.10 Intrepid... Can someone check to see if it has been corrected in that version? If not, i'll respond to the bug report.
