Date May 9th, 2008
Advisory ID MDVA-2008:062
Affected versions 2008.0
Synopsis Updated drakxtools package fixes various bugs

Problem Description

This update fixes several minor issues:

- some GUIes (eg: rpmdrake) would crash on clicking on the close
button while they load (bug #35230)

- draksec was crashing if the administrator refused to install
(bug #38911)

- localdrake: After changing the localization language from drakconf
in a high security level, the permissions of /etc/sysconfig/i18n were
changed such that the file was only readable by root. This caused
graphical login via kdm to fail (bug #39027)
