User Rating:      How can I rate this item?
Posted by LinuxSecurity.com Team

To upgrade automatically, use « MandrakeUpdate ».  

If you want to upgrade manually, download the updated package from one 
of our FTP server mirrors and uprade with "rpm -Fvh *.rpm".  

You can download the updates directly from one of the mirror sites
listed at:

   http://www.linux-mandrake.com/en/ftp.php3.  

Updated packages are available in the "updates/[ver]/RPMS/" directory.  
For example, if you are looking for an updated RPM package for
Linux-Mandrake 7.2, look for it in "updates/7.2/RPMS/".  Updated source
RPMs are available as well, but you generally do not need to download
them.

Please be aware that sometimes it takes the mirrors a few hours to 
update, so if you want an immediate upgrade, please use one of the two 
above-listed mirrors.
