Synopsis :

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

Description :

HAL daemon could use 100% cpu when some non storage SCSI peripheral
when connected to a system.

Update packages fix this issue by upgrading to new version 0.5.9.1,
as well as other stability fixes and improved suspend/hibernation for
some laptops.

Update:

An error was introduced in the previous hal-info bugfix update that
prevented suspend for IBM-based laptops. This package fixes the error
and adds additional laptops to the suspend/hibernation compatibility
list.

As well, the cryptsetup-luks packages are being made available as
they weren't available on all CD/DVD install media.
