Problem description

A number of bugs have been fixed in the drakxtools package. Primarily, problems with drakconnect were fixed. The old behaviour of drakconnect to detect network interfaces was to load all of the network modules corresponding to current hardware and look for network interfaces created by the module loading. However, determining network interfaces in this way prevented drakconnect from ever seeing USB ethernet adapters. As well, the way in which drakconnect mapped real network interfaces to a logical configuration prevented drakconnect from mapping interfaces without an alias in /etc/modules.conf. Finally, drakconnect had problems handling wireless network devices correctly. The updated package also provides a more up-to-date wireless modules list so drakconnect is able to determine more types of wireless devices. A number of other smaller bugs have been repaired as well and MandrakeSoft encourages all users to upgrade to these new packages. Update: These updated packages provide a fix for Sagem 800 ADSL modem configuration.
