Package name urpmi
Date November 29th, 2007
Advisory ID MDKA-2007:123
Affected versions 2008.0
Synopsis Updated urpmi package fixes handling of source packages installation

Problem Description

The package included with Mandriva Linux 2008 for urpmi, the Mandriva
package management tool, has regressions in the behaviour of the --src
and --install-src parameters. The --install-src parameter fails to
work at all. The --src parameter does not download and install the
actual .src.rpm as it did in previous releases, it only installs the
necessary build dependencies.

This update fixes these issues.
