VDT 2.0.0p2 Update

On 8 June 2009, the VDT team announced the release of VDT 2.0.0p2.

Changes to VDT 2.0.0p2

  1. Updated glexec to 0.5.36 to address a security issue.
  2. Fixed spurious warnings in vdt-post-install when there are no post-install steps.
  3. The VDT Updater is more forgiving when validating user input, and allows you to try again after a mistake instead of just quitting.

Updating to VDT 2.0.0p2

If you installed VDT 2.0.0 after VDT 2.0.0p2 was released on 8 June 2009, you do not need to do any of these update operations because you will have 2.0.0p2 or later.

Recommended method: VDT Updater

We strongly encourage users to update the VDT using the VDT updater script: VDT updater instructions.

Not recommended: Pacman update

If you really want to do it the hard way, instructions for updating by using Pacman directly are available on another page. This method is hard to follow and error prone.
