 Mandriva Linux Advisory                                   MDVA-2009:021

 Package : drakxtools
 Date    : February 12, 2009
 Affected: 2009.0

 Problem Description:

 This update fixes several minor issues with drakxtools:
 - it prevents the harddrake service to uselessly backup xorg.conf
 when not configuring  the driver
 - it fixes a couple minor issues with diskdrake:
   o stop crashing when udev & diskdrake are competing in order to
   create a device node (#41832)
   o --dav: handle davfs2 credentials in /etc/davfs2/secrets (#44190)
   o --dav: handle https
   o --nfs: handle host:/ (#44320)
   o --smb: cifs must be used instead of smbfs (#42483)
   o lookup for Samba master browsers too
 - it fixes displaying various devices in their proper category in
 the harddrake GUI
 - it handle a couple of new network driver
 - finish-install:
    o show only installed 3D desktops
    o adapt to new Xconfig::glx API (drak3d 1.21)
    o use /dev/urandom instead of /dev/random to generate salt for
    passwords (since reading on /dev/random can block boot process)
 - prevent mdkapplet from crashing (#46477)
 - smb: fix netbios name resolution (#42483, thanks to Derek Jennings)
