MDKA-2007:007 : lirc

High Nessus Plugin ID 24544


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


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.


Update the affected package(s).
