Package name xalf
Date January 22nd, 2001
Advisory ID MDKA-2001:003
Affected versions 7.2
Synopsis Updated xalf packages fix problems due to the latest glibc update

Problem Description

Due to the update of glibc with the fixing of the LD_PRELOAD variable,
the xalf helper application ceases to function properly. As a result,
many applications that use xalf to provide visual feedback will not
run, such as MandrakeUpdate. This update corrects the problem.

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.
