Mandriva: Subject: [Security Announce] [ MDVA-2008:120 ] draksnapshot Print E-mail

Posted by Benjamin D. Thomas   
Mandrake This update fixes several minor issues with draksnapshot, such as backups not being completed due to bad permissions. A number of fixes were done to the applet as well, including notifications showing as information instead of warnings. Draksnapshot now no longer auto-disables after configuring, and it only pops up if a USB disk is mounted. Finally, it now prevents showing the panel icon before the bubble, so the latter is correctly placed.
