Synopsis :

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

Description :

A limitation on the setkeycodes utility in the console-tools package
was found, where it wasn't possible to set a keycode greater than
128, making it impossible to use extra keys like multimedia keys on
Logitech keyboards or extra keys on many laptops.

The updated packages raise the limit of keycodes allowed, up to 240.
