The package included with Mandriva Linux 2008 for psad had two problems. Firstly, it did not depend on perl-IPTables-ChainMgr, which in fact it does require to work. Secondly, the /etc/psad/ip_options file was incorrectly omitted from the package, making psad fail to start. This updated package fixes both issues.
