Bug Description

Binary package hint: ubuntu-docs

The section about jockey had the name restricted-manager, now it is jockey, but links still refer the old name:

In some cases, restricted software is the only option. Such cases include software for the playback of certain audio and video formats, some fonts and <ulink type="help" url="ghelp:hardware#restricted-manager">drivers for some graphics cards</ulink>.
Located in add-applications/C/add-applications.xml:415(para)

In this case, you will not be able to use visual effects with your default graphics driver. However, you may be able to use a <ulink type="help" url="ghelp:hardware#restricted-manager">restricted driver</ulink> instead.
Located in desktop-effects/C/desktop-effects.xml:207(para)

Here is a proposed patch for String Freeze exception in Karmic dev. I changed the 2 spots noted in the bug description. Also, I removed the restricted-manager entry from gnome-menus-C.ent. Finally, I adjusted a line in scripts/ which referred to "restricted-manager" to use "jockey".

I'm not entirely sure those last 2 points were necessary or desired. Matthew, can you please verify that it was correct to include them. If not, I can rebuild the patch without those changes.
