Mandriva Linux Advisory MDKA-2007:122
http://www.mandriva.com/security/
_______________________________________________________________________

Package : printerdrake
Date : November 26, 2007
Affected: 2007.1
_______________________________________________________________________

Problem Description:

In Mandriva Linux 2007 Spring, printerdrake would not detect many
network printers, due to defaulting to using a less comprehensive
printer scan method than previous releases did. (bug 30090)

When changing the protocol for a configured network printer,
printerdrake released with Mandriva Linux 2007 Spring would not update
the associated protocol port number, leaving it in a non-working
state. Also, general reconfiguration of network printers would fail,
due to the use of an incorrect command. (bug 29524)

This update fixes these issues.
