Mandrake Updated package.
 Mandriva Linux Advisory                                   MDKA-2005:053
 Package : drakxtools
 Date    : November 9, 2005
 Affected: 2006.0
 Problem Description:
 A number of bugs have been fixed in this new drakxtools package,
 primarily within the drakconnect and XFdrake programs:
 The package requires perl-suid for fileshareset and filesharelist.
 Drakconnect fixes include:
 - don't duplicate variables (MTU, NETMASK, IPADDR) in ifcfg files
 - don't let interfaces with unknown drivers be configured
 - set hostname only after packages have been installed, thus preventing
   a potential failure in the graphical urpmi
 - workaround to have device-independant configuration files in wireless.d
 - workaround missing "device" link in sysfs for rt2400/rt2500
 - fix zd1201 device detection
 Net_applet fixes include:
 - use disconnected icon if no route, even if wifi is associated
 XFdrake fixes include:
 - handle nvidia_legacy
 - prevent x11 segfaulting with nvidia driver (loading both Xorg's glx
   and nvidia's glx)
 - prevent GL applications from segfaulting when using the nv driver
   while nvidia packages are being installed
