THIS THREAD WILL RE-APPEAR EACH TIME THERE WILL BE NEW UPDATESNew updates  for Mandrake 9.1 are from May 16 on the mirrors total 15 MB :cdrecordcdrecord cdda2wavdrakxtoolsdrakxtools newtharddrakeharddrake uimkisofsxinetdB) BrunoHow to get the updates:In the Mandrake Control Center  you go to Software management, then Mandrake Update ( first icon second line ). It will present you a list of update-mirrors first, pick a mirror and it will get the update-list from the  ftp-site, this will take a while. When finished it will present you the packages. You will need all those packages because the list is adapted to your configuration. Select a few packages at a time and press OK, it will then download the packages and install them. Then you select the next few etc. tec.( *apparently the last two US mirrors are the best )

Absolutely. :blink: Got a great deal on an 80GB WD hdd, couldn't pass it up; then decided to test as many flavors of Linux as I could, in order to decide which I liked best, in a variety of ways. Still want to try Slackware 9.0, but it's beyond me to set up at this point, and also will be ordering SUSE 8.2 or 8.3, since it appears to be a favorite. Right at this point, Mandrake is my choice, but RedHat and ELX and Knoppix (installed) are very nice, indeed. Guess most important is that I am learning a little, and sure as heck having fun. :unsure:

You´re quiet a character Quint ! As Far as Slackware 9.0 is concerned: that is not difficult at all, believe me, after all you have managed to do uptill now I´m sure you can handle Slack ! Go on give it a go !Happy you´re still on Mandrake though, for me it is and stays the favorite, I will keep you all informed about the updates regularly here in this thread, I´ll just dig it up out of the archieves and put it on top of the list again. So then you will know what time it is. Have fun Quint !B) Bruno

MandrakeSoft Security Advisory MDKSA-2003:066 : kernelPackage name kernelDate June 11th, 2003Advisory ID MDKSA-2003:066Affected versions 9.1Synopsis Updated kernel packages fix multiple vulnerabilities Problem DescriptionMultiple vulnerabilities were discovered and fixed in the Linux kernel.* CAN-2003-0001: Multiple ethernet network card drivers do not pad frames with null bytes which allows remote attackers to obtain information from previous packets or kernel memory by using special malformed packets.* CAN-2003-0244: The route cache implementation in the 2.4 kernel and the Netfilter IP conntrack module allows remote attackers to cause a Denial of Service (DoS) via CPU consumption due to packets with forged source addresses that cause a large number of hash table collisions related to the PREROUTING chain.* CAN-2003-0246: The ioperm implementation in 2.4.20 and earlier kernels does not properly restrict privileges, which allows local users to gain read or write access to certain I/O ports.* CAN-2003-0247: A vulnerability in the TTY layer of the 2.4 kernel allows attackers to cause a kernel oops resulting in a DoS.* CAN-2003-0248: The mxcsr code in the 2.4 kernel allows attackers to modify CPU state registers via a malformed address.As well, a number of bug fixes were made in the 9.1 kernel including:* Support for more machines that did not work with APIC * Audigy2 support * New/updated modules: prims25, adiusbadsl, thinkpad, ieee1394, orinoco, via-rhine, * Fixed SiS IOAPIC * IRQ balancing has been fixed for SMP * Updates to ext3 * The previous ptrace fix has been redone to work betterMandrakeSoft encourages all users to upgrade to these new kernels. Updated kernels will be available shortly for other supported platforms and architectures. Full information to be found at this link:http://www.mandrakes...=MDKSA-2003:066

Natan,It is not on all the mirrors yet, people might have to wait a few days if their mirror is not uploaded yet.Thanks for the info.More info about kernel upgrades: Please read ThisWARNING !! NOTE: People with a Nvidia kernel should wait for the right nvidia packages, or will lose their 3D support ! See Mike180´s Thread and This one from Havnblast !!!

I also don't update the Kernel.... Many things are dependent on the Kernel version. Every six months there will be a new release anyway, so why bother.....

Two updates in this posting.  1.  If your a gamer then the ethereal update is of interest to you.  2.  Gzip is used by everybody so this one everyone should grab.First update:________________________________________________________________________                Mandrake Linux Security Update Advisory ________________________________________________________________________Package name:           etherealAdvisory ID:            MDKSA-2003:067Date:                   June 16th, 2003Affected versions: 9.1________________________________________________________________________Problem Description: Several vulnerabilities in ethereal were discovered by Timo Sirainen.  Integer overflows were found in the Mount and PPP dissectors, as well  as one-byte buffer overflows in the AIM, GIOP Gryphon, OSPF, PPTP,  Quake, Quake2, Quake3, Rsync, SMB, SMPP, and TSP dissectors.  These  vulnerabilties were corrected in ethereal 0.9.12. Link to advisory on ethereal is here.---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------Second Update:________________________________________________________________________                Mandrake Linux Security Update Advisory ________________________________________________________________________Package name:           gzipAdvisory ID:            MDKSA-2003:068Date:                   June 16th, 2003Affected versions: 8.2, 9.0, 9.1, Corporate Server 2.1, Multi Network Firewall 8.2 ________________________________________________________________________Problem Description: A vulnerability exists in znew, a script included with gzip, that  would create temporary files without taking precautions to avoid a  symlink attack.  Patches have been applied to make use of mktemp to  generate unique filenames, and properly make use of noclobber in the  script.  Likewise, a fix for gzexe which had been applied previously  was incomplete.  It has been fixed to make full use of mktemp  everywhere a temporary file is created.  The znew problem was initially reported by Michal Zalewski and was  again reported more recently to Debian by Paul Szabo. ________________________________________________________________________Full text of this update to be found here.Patch will only be availible on mirrors updated TODAY (16 Jun 2003)List of all official mandrake update mirrors is here.
