Mandriva: Updated rpmdrake packages fix various bugs Print E-mail
User Rating:      How can I rate this item?
Posted by Benjamin D. Thomas   
Mandrake This update fixes a crash when reading packages with an empty backport media (#36720). This is a rare bug since DVD media did not include backport media, and network media provides a non-empty backport media. It also makes sure that a wait dialog always got destroyed (#36921).

 Problem Description:
 
 This update fixes a crash when reading packages with an empty backport
 media (#36720).  This is a rare bug since DVD media did not include
 backport media, and network media provides a non-empty backport media.
 
 It also makes sure that a wait dialog always got destroyed (#36921).
 Due to a bug, in some error cases, the dialog was not destroyed,
 thus blocking the GUI until rpmdrake was closed.
 
 Last but not least, it makes MandrivaUpdate ignore backport media
 tagged as update (#36654).
