upgrade manually, download the updated package from one of our FTP
server mirrors and uprade with "rpm -Uvh package_name". All mirrors
are listed on Updated packages are
available in the "updates/" directory.

Mandrake 7.0, look for it in: updates/7.0/RPMS/

Note: we give the md5 sum for each package. It lets you check the
integrity of the downloaded package by running the md5sum command on
the package ("md5sum package.rpm").
