Synopsis :

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

Description :

Dkms-lirc allows one to install LIRC drivers on non-Mandriva kernels.
It contains a driver named lirc_parallel.ko which does not work on
SMP-enabled kernels, preventing the driver installation on such
kernels. The lirc_parallel.ko driver has been removed from the
updated package and moved to a separate package named
dkms-lirc-parallel.
