Description

A number of bugs have been fixed in this new drakxtools package, primarily within the drakconnect and XFdrake programs:

The package requires perl-suid for fileshareset and filesharelist.

Drakconnect fixes include:

  • don't duplicate variables (MTU, NETMASK, IPADDR) in ifcfg files - don't let interfaces with unknown drivers be configured - set hostname only after packages have been installed, thus preventing a potential failure in the graphical urpmi - workaround to have device-independent configuration files in wireless.d - workaround missing 'device' link in sysfs for rt2400/rt2500 - fix zd1201 device detection

Net_applet fixes include:

  • use disconnected icon if no route, even if wifi is associated

XFdrake fixes include:

  • handle nvidia_legacy - prevent x11 segfaulting with nvidia driver (loading both Xorg's glx and nvidia's glx) - prevent GL applications from segfaulting when using the nv driver while nvidia packages are being installed
