MDKA-2004:019: Updated rpmdrake packages fix improper response
Posted on: 04/29/2004 02:46 AM
Mandrakesoft has released updated rpmdrake packages for Mandrakelinux
Mandrakelinux Update Advisory
Package name: rpmdrake
Advisory ID: MDKA-2004:019
Date: April 28th, 2004
Affected versions: 10.0
When MandrakeUpdate was unable to retrieve the hdlist or the synthesis file from an update medium, it used to continue without alerting the user. Now MandrakeUpdate will alert the user and indicate to them to retry the operation later or to delete and re-add the medium in case the directory layout has changed.
To upgrade automatically use MandrakeUpdate or urpmi. The verification of md5 checksums and GPG signatures is performed automatically for you.
A list of FTP mirrors can be obtained from:
All packages are signed by Mandrakesoft for security. You can obtain the GPG public key of the Mandrakelinux Security Team by executing:
gpg --recv-keys --keyserver www.mandrakesecure.net 0x22458A98
Please be aware that sometimes it takes the mirrors a few hours to update.
