Updated drakxtools packages fix installer and grub2 issues

Publication date: 17 Aug 2018
Type: bugfix
Affected Mageia releases : 6


This update fixes a bug in drakboot that prevented the main "Mageia"
entry being selectable as the default entry for GRUB2 (mga#23393).
In the installer, this caused the default entry to be set to a specific
kernel version, which could lead to users continuing to boot an old kernel
even after a kernel update had been installed if they didn't notice this.

This update also fixes a bug in the classical installer where, if the user
chooses to install updates at the end of the installation process,
installation can fail with an error message that the udisks-daemon is not
running (mga#19742).
