While the Mandrake Security Team has already issued updates to 2.2.7a
for all supported releases, RPMS of 2.2.8a are being made available for
Mandrake, including RPMS built with LDAP support (which are currently
unsupported by Mandrake).
At present, RPMS for 9.0 and 8.0 are available at
RPMS for 8.1, 8.2 and 9.0 are in progress and should be available within
12 hours, after which RPMS for all these releases will be updated on the
samba FTP mirrors.
urpmi can be used to update the RPMs, please see the instructions on
http://ranger.dnsalias.com/mandrake/samba/, or once the RPMS are
avialable on the mirrors, the README.txt
(Of course, these packages are also unsupported by Mandrakesoft, and
have only seen minimal testing on my production machines.)
