 Mandriva Linux Advisory                                   MDKA-2006:056
 Package : drakxtools
 Date    : November 29, 2006
 Affected: 2007.0
 Problem Description:
 Several bugs were fixed in drakxtools:

 - it was not possible to start rpmdrake from the menu (#26383) - it was
 not possible to set up updates media and then distro media (or the
 reverse) in edit-urpm-sources - drakauth: o add encrypted home and
 pam_mount support o hide password when calling "net join" or "net ads
 join" (pixel) - drakbackup: o fix archiver detection/config file
 replace (stew, #26705, #27180) o do not backup the backups (Adamw) -
 drakboot: support Xen with lilo using mbootpack - drakfirewall: really
 disable services (#27295) - drakvpn: o add pkcs11 token support for
 openvpn o ask password/PIN if needed - drakconnect/drakroam: o detect
 wireless interfaces with unknown driver, e.g. rt61 o do not check for
 ipw3945 kernel module packages o do not wrongly tell that
 acx100-firmware can be found in Club or commercial editions (#26475) o
 use iwpriv commands to configure WPA on rt2570 and rt61 chipsets o
 update madwifi URL which was old - finish-install: add encrypted home
 and pam_mount support - printerdrake: due to changes in the format of
 HPLIP's device description XML files, scanner functionality was not
 recognized any more (#26567).
