MDKA-2006:046 : bootsplash

High Nessus Plugin ID 24521


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


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.


Update the affected package(s).
