hrev45189, gcc2.

I hadn't run Haiku for a while and was surprised to see the ReadOnlyBootPrompt appearing when booting a vmware image or an image built straight to a partition. A quick search led me to #8945 and hrev45185.

1) The ReadOnlyBootPrompt sports two confusingly labeled buttons; 'Run Installer' and 'Desktop (Live-CD)', neither of which seems an appropriate choice for the use cases in question. A single 'Continue' button would be preferable, although just relabeling the second one e.g. 'Boot to desktop' might work too.

2) There is now an Installer icon on my desktop, looking a bit superfluous/unpurposed/déplacé.

3) 'ReadOnlyBootPrompt' seems to have become a misnomer, perhaps it should now be renamed.

I have "re-translated" the strings on Pootle, and for Hungarian the buttons and the text is fit to the function for the app.

Hrmm... I didn't consider those points.

  1. The button "Desktop (Live-CD)" is renamed to "Boot to Desktop"
  2. The Installer icon will only be copied to the Desktop on read-only medium.
  3. "ReadOnlyBootPrompt" is renamed to "FirstBootPrompt"

Replying to dsjonny:

IIRC it's better to update the text in the source code, as opposed to having the localized text mean something else.
