Synopsis :

The remote Mandrake host is missing one or more security-related

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-independent configuration files in wireless.d - workaround
missing 'device' link in sysfs for rt2400/rt2500 - fix zd1201 device

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
