Package name mktemp
Date November 20th, 2001
Advisory ID MDKA-2001:021
Affected versions 7.1, 7.2, CS1.0
Synopsis Updated mktemp packages can create temporary directories

Problem Description

The mktemp packages for 7.x and Corporate Server did not have the
ability to create temporary directories, only temporary files. This
update gives mktemp this ability, which is a prerequisite for the
teTeX updates (MDKSA-2001:086).

To upgrade automatically, use MandrivaUpdate.


Please verify the update prior to upgrading to ensure the integrity of the downloaded package. You can do this with the command :

                rpm --checksig package.rpm

You can get the GPG public key of the Mandriva Security Team to verify the GPG signature of each RPM.

If you use MandrivaUpdate, the verification of md5 checksum and GPG signature is performed automatically for you.
