5 azarah 132 27 Feb 2002; Martin Schlemmer <azarah@gentoo.org>: in some wierd cases,
6     a redundent /dev/.devfsd on a unmounted /dev can cause problems. Fixed
7     this in /sbin/rc.
8    
9 azarah 130 26 Feb 2002; Martin Schlemmer <azarah@gentoo.org>: fix my brain dead
10     update of the 25th. It really should keep "gentoo=nodevfs" in mind.
11     Also added 'get_bootparam()' to help in retrieving kernel options.
12     Updated /etc/init.d/functions.sh, /etc/init.d/checkroot and /sbin/rc
13     for this.
14    
15     Updated /etc/init.d/consolefont to work without devfs as well.
16    
17 azarah 131 When rebooting or shutting down, a service should not fail to stop
18     if a service it depends on, fails. Updated /etc/init.d/runscript.sh
19     for this.
20    
21 azarah 129 25 Feb 2002; Martin Schlemmer <azarah@gentoo.org>: added a check if
22     /dev is mounted when creating entries for /etc/mtab. This should solve a
23     invalid entry or /dev being mounted even with 'gentoo=nodevfs' option.
24     Updated /etc/init.d/checkroot for this.
25    
26 drobbins 128 17 Feb 2002: Daniel Robbins <drobbins@gentoo.org>: Made "xfs" the default
27     filesystem in /etc/fstab (from ReiserFS) and removed "notail" option (it's
28     just in a comment now)
29 azarah 125
30 drobbins 128 17 Feb 2002: Martin Schlemmer (azarah@gentoo.org): more fixes to 'after' and
31     'before', updated /etc/init.d/runscript.sh for this. This should fix
32     services not getting started in the correct order in a tight loop, services
33     getting stopped out of order, and some other sanity checks. Updated
34     rc-script.sh for updated help.
35    
36     15 Feb 2002: Martin Schlemmer (azarah@gentoo.org): update /etc/profile to
37     resolve bug #588. Reimplemented things a bit, and added the 'after' type.
38     'before' and 'after' will only work currently for a change of runlevel.
39     Updated /etc/init.d/depscan.sh, /etc/init.d/runscript.sh and /sbin/rc for it.
40 azarah 127
41 drobbins 128 13 Feb 2002: Martin Schlemmer (azarah@gentoo.org): add some more entries to
42     /etc/devfsd.conf to make alsa users life easier ... thanks Tod.
43 azarah 124
44 drobbins 128 12 Feb 2002: Martin Schlemmer (azarah@gentoo.org): Some more cleanups to
45     /etc/init.d/depscan.sh and /etc/init.d/runscript.sh.
46 azarah 125
47 azarah 124 Fixed some services not starting again when restarting a service.
48     Seems simple is still the best way.
49    
50     Fixed some other problems created with feature additions and cleanups.
51    
52 drobbins 128 11 Feb 2002: Martin Schlemmer (azarah@gentoo.org): General cleanups to
53     /etc/init.d/depscan.sh and /etc/init.d/runscript.sh.
54 azarah 124
55     Added 'before *' to /etc/init.d/checkroot to make sure it gets
56     started first.
57    
58     Added 'use *' to /etc/init.d/local to make sure it gets started
59     last.
60    
61     10 Feb 2002: Martin Schlemmer (azarah@gentoo.org): Fixed /sbin/rc
62     to stop a service on change of runlevel if it is in 'use' by
63     another service.
64    
65     Added the 'provide' depend type for creating virtual services.
66     Updated /etc/init.d/depscan.sh for this.
67    
68     Added the 'before' depend type. This is more for changing the
69     order services start in. Updated /etc/init.d/depscan.sh and
70     /etc/init.d/functions.sh for this.
71    
72     Updated /etc/init.d/depscan.sh to work with '*' as argument for
73     dependancy types. This can be used with 'use' and 'before' to
74     start a script last or first respectively.
75    
76     Added save_options() and get_options() to /etc/init.d/functions.sh
77     for saving misc settings between startup/shutdown. Updated
78     /etc/init.d/net.eth0 to use these and properly down virtual
79     interfaces.
80    
81     6 Feb 2002: Martin Schlemmer (azarah@gentoo.org): updated both
82     /etc/init.d/bootmisc and /etc/init.d/keymaps to be quiet on no
83     errors.
84    
85     * rc-scripts 1.2.6 (6 Feb 2002)
86    
87 azarah 122 2 Feb 2002: Martin Schlemmer (azarah@gentoo.org): updated /etc/net.eth0
88     to specify the gateway device via the $gateway variable (something like
89     gateway="eth0/192.168.0.1").
90    
91 azarah 119 2 Feb 2002: Martin Schlemmer (azarah@gentoo.org): added rc-script
92     /etc/init.d/numlock, for enabling numlock at boot.
93    
94 azarah 117 29 Jan 2002: Martin Schlemmer (azarah@gentoo.org): hopefully the
95     last fix to /etc/init.d/netmount to umount cleanly. This fix
96     implements a retry if not successful the first time, and will
97     kill processess using the mount. Also small type-o fix to
98     /etc/init.d/halt.sh.
99    
100 woodchip 115 27 Jan 2002: Donny Davies (woodchip@gentoo.org): security fix to
101     /etc/pam.d/sshd,login,chsh: added pam_shells.so to the stack.
102     Fixed /etc/passwd,group for user/group mysql.
103    
104 azarah 113 27 Jan 2002: Martin Schlemmer (azarah@gentoo.org): added charset
105     map file support to /etc/init.d/consolefont and the setting to
106     /etc/rc.conf.
107    
108 azarah 112 25 Jan 2002: Martin Schlemmer (azarah@gentoo.org): fixed dircolors
109     in skel files to support both versions of dircolors.
110    
111 azarah 109 23 Jan 2002: Martin Schlemmer (azarah@gentoo.org): fixed bug
112 azarah 113 in the restart stuff of /etc/init.d/runscript.sh that caused
113     a restart of a 'net' service not to restart services again
114     that depended on it.
115 azarah 109
116 azarah 107 * rc-scripts 1.2.5 (20 Jan 2002)
117    
118 azarah 106 20 Jan 2002: Martin Schlemmer (azarah@gentoo.org): updated
119     /etc/init.d/net.eth0 to 'use' pcmcia.
120    
121 azarah 102 8 Jan 2002: Martin Schlemmer (azarah@gentoo.org): added '--sh' to
122     the dircolors command in /etc/skel/.bash_profile to handle cases
123     where bash do not export $SHELL.
124    
125     6 Jan 2002: Martin Schlemmer (azarah@gentoo.org): updated
126     /etc/init.d/runscripts.sh, /etc/init.d/net.eth0, /etc/conf.d/net and
127     removed /etc/init.d/net.eth0-dhcp to reflect a new 'bsd-ish' config
128     scheme for the net.eth* scripts.
129    
130 woodchip 100 6 Jan 2002: Donny Davies (woodchip@gentoo.org): Removed email address
131     from manpages; no need for that..
132    
133 azarah 102 5 Jan 2002: Martin Schlemmer (azarah@gentoo.org): fix type-o in
134     /etc/devfsd.conf; had 'dvd' in the cdrw stuff.
135    
136 drobbins 97 * rc-scripts 1.2.4 (30 Dec 2001)
137    
138     30 Dec 2001: Daniel Robbins (drobbins@gentoo.org): Changed default umask
139     back to 022 as it should be.
140    
141 azarah 96 30 Dec 2001; Martin Schlemmer (azarah@gentoo.org): Updated
142     /etc/init.d/checkfs to return 0 if the fs was successfully repaired.
143    
144 woodchip 95 29 Dec 2001; Donny Davies (woodchip@gentoo.org):
145     sort -t: -k3,3 -n /etc/passwd,group. Ahhhh :))
146    
147 azarah 93 28 Dec 2001; Martin Schlemmer (azarah@gentoo.org); Updated
148     /etc/init.d/depscan.sh to store info about missing dependancies of
149     type 'need' in ${svcdir}/broken. Also updated /etc/init.d/runscript.sh
150     to use this when starting a script ('need' dependancies is critical for
151     startup). Added the broken() function to /etc/init.d/runscript.sh
152     to list the missing dependancies.
153    
154     Updated /etc/init.d/runscript.sh for svc_start() to have better error
155     checking.
156    
157     Updated /etc/init.d/functions.sh with ewend(), which is the same as
158     eend(), but print a warning on error, not a error. Updated
159     /etc/init.d/checkroot and /etc/init.d/checkfs to use this function.
160    
161     27 Dec 2001; Martin Schlemmer (azarah@gentoo.org); Update /sbin/runscript.c
162     to run /etc/init.d/rc-help.sh if no arguments is passed to a rc-script.
163    
164     Added /etc/init.d/rc-help.sh, simple script that prints out help for
165     the rc-scripts.
166    
167 azarah 91 25 Dec 2001; Martin Schlemmer (azarah@gentoo.org); Update
168     /etc/init.d/shutdown.sh and /etc/init.d/reboot.sh not to force the
169     halt and reboot. This fixes a problem where / was not unmounted
170     properly in some cases.
171    
172     24 Dec 2001; Martin Schlemmer (azarah@gentoo.org): Move $svcdir to
173     to /etc/init.d/functions.sh, and update /etc/init.d/runscript.sh and
174     /etc/init.d/depscan.sh for this
175    
176     Modified /etc/init.d/runscript.sh to also restart the services that
177     depend on a service if that service is restarted. Enhanced the
178     restart function to be able to have custom restart() functions in
179     rc-scripts. The custom restart() have to use svc_stop() and
180     svc_start() to restart the service.
181    
182     Add a pause function to /etc/init.d/runscript.sh. It will basically
183     stop a service without stopping the services that depends on that
184     service.
185    
186 drobbins 97 Add a pause function to /etc/init.d/runscript.sh. It will basically stop a
187     service without stopping the services that depends on that service.
188    
189 azarah 91 * rc-scripts 1.2.3 (18 Dec 2001)
190    
191     16 Dec 2001; Martin Schlemmer (azarah@gentoo.org): Moved the stuff from
192     /sbin/init (old) to /sbin/rc (basically drop the init wrapper we used).
193    
194     Some cleanups: take out the shm resize comment;
195    
196     remove the $wrongmount;
197    
198     remove the mountshm() function and insert it directly
199     where needed;
200    
201     remove the setting of $PATH as /sbin/init already do
202     this for us.
203    
204     Added the if statement to detect if it is the first time the 'boot'
205     runlevel is executed (if [ "$RUNLEVEL" = "S" ] && [ "$argv1" = "boot" ]).
206     $RUNLEVEL is a env var set by /sbin/init.
207    
208     Also added functionality to detect if the kernel have DEVFS support
209     compiled in; seems new users thinks devfs is unstable and as they do
210     not always read the docs, it does not get compiled in ;/ Should
211     make live for us a bit easier.
212    
213     14 Dec 2001; Martin Schlemmer (azarah@gentoo.org): Fixed /sbin/rc to kill
214     a cosmetic bug in the part that stops all the unneeded services.
215    
216 woodchip 79 * rc-scripts 1.2.2 (8 Dec 2001)
217    
218 azarah 81 10 Dec 2001; Added a localhost entry in /etc/hosts.
219    
220 woodchip 79 8 Dec 2001; Donny Davies (woodchip@gentoo.org): Added start-stop-daemon.c
221     to rc-scripts/sbin source. Moved rc-scripts/init.d/runscript.c to
222     rc-scripts/sbin/runscript.c. Added manpage for start-stop-daemon.
223     Start-stop-daemon is moved here from sysvinit by the way. There is stuff
224     in this ChangeLog that needs to be removed! Like the changes to hosts,
225     profile. /etc/{passwd,group} have minor UID and GID type fixes for
226 woodchip 80 users ftp, postgres, xfs. Tweaked tarball.sh to not include CVS
227     directories.
228 woodchip 79
229 woodchip 61 29 Nov 2001; Donny Davies (woodchip@gentoo.org): Added a man directory
230     to rc-scripts. Checked in two manpages there, one for modules.autoload.5
231 woodchip 63 and one for update-modules.8. These were adapted from Debian. Updated
232     tarball.sh to include the new man directory. Updated baselayout to install
233     these manpages. Slightly tweak the /etc/modules.autoload comments.
234 woodchip 61
235 drobbins 65 28 Nov 2001; Martin Schlemmer (azarah@gentoo.org): Updated /sbin/init
236     to work correctly with the 'gentoo=nodevfs' option, and cleaned
237     out old code.
238    
239     Updated /etc/init.d/bootmisc with additional lock files to clean.
240    
241     27 Nov 2001; Martin Schlemmer (azarah@gentoo.org): Updated
242     /etc/init.d/depscan.sh for a virtual 'use' depend, called 'logger'
243     that can be used for services that needs to have a logger started
244     before they are started. Updated /etc/conf.d/basic with $SYSLOGGER
245     that is used to define what loggers the 'logger' depend represent.
246    
247     26 Nov 2001; Martin Schlemmer (azarah@gentoo.org): Updated
248     /etc/passwd and /etc/group with minor fixes to pass pwck and grpck.
249    
250     25 Nov 2001; Martin Schlemmer (azarah@gentoo.org): Changed umask in
251     /etc/profile for the user to 077 for security.
252    
253     Added a stop() function to /etc/init.d/clock. Also removed uneeded
254     'source /etc/rc.conf' line.
255    
256     Updated /etc/init.d/hostname to set the hostname to 'localhost' if
257     /etc/hostname is invalid.
258    
259     Updated /sbin/init to move the entries in /lib/dev-state to /dev before
260     running devfsd, as it did still not save settings properly. Also removed
261     old /dev-state/compat stuff.
262    
263 drobbins 57 25 Nov 2001; ncsd, the name service cache daemon script, has been removed
264     from the default "default" runlevel. It still exists in the archive so that
265 drobbins 65 users who want/need it can add it easily.
266 drobbins 57
267 drobbins 56 25 Nov 2001; Updated the /etc/fstab; removed usbdevfs (explicitly mounted),
268 drobbins 65 removed notail from the ext2 boot partition, other cleanups.
269 drobbins 56
270 drobbins 55 25 Nov 2001; Fixed init.d/clock script to work in UTC mode.
271 drobbins 65
272     24 Nov 2001; Martin Schlemmer (azarah@gentoo.org): Added /etc/devfsd.conf
273     and updated /sbin/init to use a new scheme for saving /dev permissions.
274     Also moved /dev-state to /lib/dev-state which is a more standard location.
275    
276     Fixed a ugly bug in /etc/init.d/depscan.sh. If a service depended on
277     itself, calling depscan.sh or changing runlevels cause a tempory effect
278     similar to a 'mini fork bomb'. Afterwards the depends was broken, and
279     changing runlevels did not want to work.
280    
281     Updated /etc/init.d/halt.sh to terminate and display message for devfsd.
282     More cosmetic than anything else, but cant hurt with the new dev-state
283     scheme.
284    
285     Updated /sbin/init to set the console log level to 1, so that bootup
286     can be much cleaner. Also updated /etc/init.d/modules not to have
287     a logger in it 'use' depends, as it should not be needed anymore.
288    
289     Updated /sbin/rc to check if devfsd is still running between runlevel
290     changes.
291    
292     Updated /etc/init.d/modules to run update-modules. We want to be sure
293     /etc/modules.conf is updated when running depmod -a.
294    
295     Change ftp's uid to 21 in /etc/passwd (was the same as bind). Also
296     added a entry for xfs (X Font Server) in /etc/passwd and /etc/group.
297    
298     Added /etc/init.d/net.ppp0, /etc/conf.d/net.ppp0 and
299     /usr/lib/ppp/chat-default as part of my new pppd scripts. Also
300     updated tarball.sh to handle ppp/chat-default.
301    
302 azarah 91 Added /etc/skel/.bash* to make things cleaner.
303 drobbins 65
304 azarah 91 Other minor changes.
305 drobbins 65
306 woodchip 53 17 Nov 2001; Donny Davies (woodchip@gentoo.org): Added /etc/shells file
307     to rc-scripts. Can remove it from sys-libs/shadow at the next release.
308    
309 drobbins 51 * rc-scripts 1.1.8 (15 Nov 2001)
310    
311     16 Nov 2001; removed bogus "mountall.test" script.
312 drobbins 48
313 drobbins 51 15 Nov 2001; Martin Schlemmer (azarah@gentoo.org): Updated
314     init.d/{runscript.sh,depscan.sh}, sbin/rc to the new dep being 'use' not
315     'uses', as it fits better with 'need' (not 'needs'). Also removed unneeded
316     for loop from init.d/depscan.sh, and other fixes. Updated names of new
317     functions in init.d/runscript.sh to better sounding ones. Updated
318     init.d/modules, init.d/netmount to use 'use'. Lots of other fixes/cleanups.
319     Removed try() out of init.d/runscript.sh (why was this here ?).
320 drobbins 46
321 drobbins 51 14 Nov 2001; Martin Schlemmer (azarah@gentoo.org): init.d/bootmisc: Now
322 drobbins 65 cleans /tmp. Also creates /etc/resolv.conf if it doesn't exist.
323 drobbins 51
324 drobbins 65 init.d/hostname: Added check for a valid /etc/hostname.
325 drobbins 51
326 drobbins 65 init.d/keymaps: Added check for valid $KEYMAP.
327 drobbins 51
328 drobbins 65 init.d/modules: Added sysklogd, metalog, syslog-ng as 'use' deps. This
329     should solve Woodchip's syslog+glue issue. We just have to change the
330     console loglevel for metalog and syslog-ng (sysklogd already updated) not to
331     output info and warnings, etc to the console, then boot will be much cleaner.
332     Also the install guide will need changing to add the loggers to 'boot' and
333     not 'default' runlevel.
334 drobbins 51
335 drobbins 65 init.d/mountall.test: Hopefully updated to the new rc-scripts style. Is
336     this really needed (I cannot see that it is used anywhere ...)?
337 drobbins 51
338     13 Nov 2001; Martin Schlemmer (azarah@gentoo.org): Updated
339 drobbins 65 init.d/runscript.sh, init.d/depscan.sh and sbin/rc with a new depend called
340     'uses'. It basically have the same usage as 'need', except that it do not
341     start services that is not in the current and 'boot' runlevels.
342 drobbins 51
343 drobbins 65 Updated init.d/netmount to use the 'uses' depend.
344 drobbins 51
345     11 Nov 2001; Martin Schlemmer (azarah@gentoo.org): Fixed init.d/runscript.sh
346     not to destroy the 'need' depends in /${svcdir}/need. This caused subsequent
347     starting and stopping of services not to start depends.
348    
349     7 Nov 2001; Martin Schlemmer (azarah@gentoo.org): Fixed a problem in sbin/rc
350     where the ${svcdir}/softscripts directory got destroyed before stopping
351     running services scheduled to be stopped. This with the fact that $SOFTLEVEL
352     was set too early, caused the services to be stopped in the wrong order.
353    
354     30 Oct 2001; Martin Schlemmer (azarah@gentoo.org): Modified init.d/netmount to
355     check if any network filesystems is mounted.
356    
357     29 Oct 2001; init.d/netmount: umount -art doesn't seem to work, so I added
358     some awk and grep magic to find all remote filesystems and umount them.
359    
360     29 Oct 2001; Martin Schlemmer (azarah@gentoo.org): A fix for checkroot
361     (missing "/"); it now actually checks the root filesystem. Also, a
362     localmount cleanliness fix.
363    
364 drobbins 46 * rc-scripts 1.1.7 (18 Oct 2001)
365    
366     [old changelog format follows]
367    
368 drobbins 45 *lots of scripts; woodchip
369     removed old rc5 scripts from cvs
370    
371     *init.d/runscript.sh; agriffis
372     Added support for rc.conf and home-grown functions
373    
374     *init.d/modules;
375 drobbins 38 Now correctly looks at /etc/modules.autoload
376    
377 drobbins 36 rc-scripts-1.1.6, released 15 Sep 2001
378     ======================================
379    
380     *init.d/runscript.sh, others
381     Handling of "net" dependencies resolve to all net devices in
382     /etc/runlevels/boot and /etc/runlevels/[curr-runlevel]. INTERFACES
