MDKA-2006:046 : bootsplash

This script is Copyright (C) 2007-2011 Tenable Network Security, Inc.


Synopsis :

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

Description :

When multiple profiles are configured, they can be choosen in the
bootloader with the PROFILE keyword, but this needs a dedicated entry
or to append manually the profile at each boot. To ease the choice of
the profile during the boot time, Mandriva developed a frame buffer
menu in GTK to choose the profile.

Unfortunately in 2007, a miscompilation removed this application from
the bootsplash package, thus the only left method to choose a profile
was the bootloader one. This new package of bootsplash brings back
the 'fbmenu' command which display the appropriate profile selection
menu during boot.
