4
5 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 Added the patches from Grant Goodyear (aka g2boojum) to enable us to
10 use a ramdisk to store the contents of ${svcdir}. Updated /sbin/rc,
11 /etc/init.d/functions.sh and /etc/init.d/checkroot for this.
12
13 26 Feb 2002; Martin Schlemmer <azarah@gentoo.org>: fix my brain dead
14 update of the 25th. It really should keep "gentoo=nodevfs" in mind.
15 Also added 'get_bootparam()' to help in retrieving kernel options.
16 Updated /etc/init.d/functions.sh, /etc/init.d/checkroot and /sbin/rc
17 for this.
18
19 Updated /etc/init.d/consolefont to work without devfs as well.
20
21 When rebooting or shutting down, a service should not fail to stop
22 if a service it depends on, fails. Updated /etc/init.d/runscript.sh
23 for this.
24
25 25 Feb 2002; Martin Schlemmer <azarah@gentoo.org>: added a check if
26 /dev is mounted when creating entries for /etc/mtab. This should solve a
27 invalid entry or /dev being mounted even with 'gentoo=nodevfs' option.
28 Updated /etc/init.d/checkroot for this.
29
30 17 Feb 2002: Daniel Robbins <drobbins@gentoo.org>: Made "xfs" the default
31 filesystem in /etc/fstab (from ReiserFS) and removed "notail" option (it's
32 just in a comment now)
33
34 17 Feb 2002: Martin Schlemmer (azarah@gentoo.org): more fixes to 'after' and
35 'before', updated /etc/init.d/runscript.sh for this. This should fix
36 services not getting started in the correct order in a tight loop, services
37 getting stopped out of order, and some other sanity checks. Updated
38 rc-script.sh for updated help.
39
40 15 Feb 2002: Martin Schlemmer (azarah@gentoo.org): update /etc/profile to
41 resolve bug #588. Reimplemented things a bit, and added the 'after' type.
42 'before' and 'after' will only work currently for a change of runlevel.
43 Updated /etc/init.d/depscan.sh, /etc/init.d/runscript.sh and /sbin/rc for it.
44
45 13 Feb 2002: Martin Schlemmer (azarah@gentoo.org): add some more entries to
46 /etc/devfsd.conf to make alsa users life easier ... thanks Tod.
47
48 12 Feb 2002: Martin Schlemmer (azarah@gentoo.org): Some more cleanups to
49 /etc/init.d/depscan.sh and /etc/init.d/runscript.sh.
50
51 Fixed some services not starting again when restarting a service.
52 Seems simple is still the best way.
53
54 Fixed some other problems created with feature additions and cleanups.
55
56 11 Feb 2002: Martin Schlemmer (azarah@gentoo.org): General cleanups to
57 /etc/init.d/depscan.sh and /etc/init.d/runscript.sh.
58
59 Added 'before *' to /etc/init.d/checkroot to make sure it gets
60 started first.
61
62 Added 'use *' to /etc/init.d/local to make sure it gets started
63 last.
64
65 10 Feb 2002: Martin Schlemmer (azarah@gentoo.org): Fixed /sbin/rc
66 to stop a service on change of runlevel if it is in 'use' by
67 another service.
68
69 Added the 'provide' depend type for creating virtual services.
70 Updated /etc/init.d/depscan.sh for this.
71
72 Added the 'before' depend type. This is more for changing the
73 order services start in. Updated /etc/init.d/depscan.sh and
74 /etc/init.d/functions.sh for this.
75
76 Updated /etc/init.d/depscan.sh to work with '*' as argument for
77 dependancy types. This can be used with 'use' and 'before' to
78 start a script last or first respectively.
79
80 Added save_options() and get_options() to /etc/init.d/functions.sh
81 for saving misc settings between startup/shutdown. Updated
82 /etc/init.d/net.eth0 to use these and properly down virtual
83 interfaces.
84
85 6 Feb 2002: Martin Schlemmer (azarah@gentoo.org): updated both
86 /etc/init.d/bootmisc and /etc/init.d/keymaps to be quiet on no
87 errors.
88
89 * rc-scripts 1.2.6 (6 Feb 2002)
90
91 2 Feb 2002: Martin Schlemmer (azarah@gentoo.org): updated /etc/net.eth0
92 to specify the gateway device via the $gateway variable (something like
93 gateway="eth0/192.168.0.1").
94
95 2 Feb 2002: Martin Schlemmer (azarah@gentoo.org): added rc-script
96 /etc/init.d/numlock, for enabling numlock at boot.
97
98 29 Jan 2002: Martin Schlemmer (azarah@gentoo.org): hopefully the
99 last fix to /etc/init.d/netmount to umount cleanly. This fix
100 implements a retry if not successful the first time, and will
101 kill processess using the mount. Also small type-o fix to
102 /etc/init.d/halt.sh.
103
104 27 Jan 2002: Donny Davies (woodchip@gentoo.org): security fix to
105 /etc/pam.d/sshd,login,chsh: added pam_shells.so to the stack.
106 Fixed /etc/passwd,group for user/group mysql.
107
108 27 Jan 2002: Martin Schlemmer (azarah@gentoo.org): added charset
109 map file support to /etc/init.d/consolefont and the setting to
110 /etc/rc.conf.
111
112 25 Jan 2002: Martin Schlemmer (azarah@gentoo.org): fixed dircolors
113 in skel files to support both versions of dircolors.
114
115 23 Jan 2002: Martin Schlemmer (azarah@gentoo.org): fixed bug
116 in the restart stuff of /etc/init.d/runscript.sh that caused
117 a restart of a 'net' service not to restart services again
118 that depended on it.
119
120 * rc-scripts 1.2.5 (20 Jan 2002)
121
122 20 Jan 2002: Martin Schlemmer (azarah@gentoo.org): updated
123 /etc/init.d/net.eth0 to 'use' pcmcia.
124
125 8 Jan 2002: Martin Schlemmer (azarah@gentoo.org): added '--sh' to
126 the dircolors command in /etc/skel/.bash_profile to handle cases
127 where bash do not export $SHELL.
128
129 6 Jan 2002: Martin Schlemmer (azarah@gentoo.org): updated
130 /etc/init.d/runscripts.sh, /etc/init.d/net.eth0, /etc/conf.d/net and
131 removed /etc/init.d/net.eth0-dhcp to reflect a new 'bsd-ish' config
132 scheme for the net.eth* scripts.
133
134 6 Jan 2002: Donny Davies (woodchip@gentoo.org): Removed email address
135 from manpages; no need for that..
136
137 5 Jan 2002: Martin Schlemmer (azarah@gentoo.org): fix type-o in
138 /etc/devfsd.conf; had 'dvd' in the cdrw stuff.
139
140 * rc-scripts 1.2.4 (30 Dec 2001)
141
142 30 Dec 2001: Daniel Robbins (drobbins@gentoo.org): Changed default umask
143 back to 022 as it should be.
144
145 30 Dec 2001; Martin Schlemmer (azarah@gentoo.org): Updated
146 /etc/init.d/checkfs to return 0 if the fs was successfully repaired.
147
148 29 Dec 2001; Donny Davies (woodchip@gentoo.org):
149 sort -t: -k3,3 -n /etc/passwd,group. Ahhhh :))
150
151 28 Dec 2001; Martin Schlemmer (azarah@gentoo.org); Updated
152 /etc/init.d/depscan.sh to store info about missing dependancies of
153 type 'need' in ${svcdir}/broken. Also updated /etc/init.d/runscript.sh
154 to use this when starting a script ('need' dependancies is critical for
155 startup). Added the broken() function to /etc/init.d/runscript.sh
156 to list the missing dependancies.
157
158 Updated /etc/init.d/runscript.sh for svc_start() to have better error
159 checking.
160
161 Updated /etc/init.d/functions.sh with ewend(), which is the same as
162 eend(), but print a warning on error, not a error. Updated
163 /etc/init.d/checkroot and /etc/init.d/checkfs to use this function.
164
165 27 Dec 2001; Martin Schlemmer (azarah@gentoo.org); Update /sbin/runscript.c
166 to run /etc/init.d/rc-help.sh if no arguments is passed to a rc-script.
167
168 Added /etc/init.d/rc-help.sh, simple script that prints out help for
169 the rc-scripts.
170
171 25 Dec 2001; Martin Schlemmer (azarah@gentoo.org); Update
172 /etc/init.d/shutdown.sh and /etc/init.d/reboot.sh not to force the
173 halt and reboot. This fixes a problem where / was not unmounted
174 properly in some cases.
175
176 24 Dec 2001; Martin Schlemmer (azarah@gentoo.org): Move $svcdir to
177 to /etc/init.d/functions.sh, and update /etc/init.d/runscript.sh and
178 /etc/init.d/depscan.sh for this
179
180 Modified /etc/init.d/runscript.sh to also restart the services that
181 depend on a service if that service is restarted. Enhanced the
182 restart function to be able to have custom restart() functions in
183 rc-scripts. The custom restart() have to use svc_stop() and
184 svc_start() to restart the service.
185
186 Add a pause function to /etc/init.d/runscript.sh. It will basically
187 stop a service without stopping the services that depends on that
188 service.
189
190 Add a pause function to /etc/init.d/runscript.sh. It will basically stop a
191 service without stopping the services that depends on that service.
192
193 * rc-scripts 1.2.3 (18 Dec 2001)
194
195 16 Dec 2001; Martin Schlemmer (azarah@gentoo.org): Moved the stuff from
196 /sbin/init (old) to /sbin/rc (basically drop the init wrapper we used).
197
198 Some cleanups: take out the shm resize comment;
199
200 remove the $wrongmount;
201
202 remove the mountshm() function and insert it directly
203 where needed;
204
205 remove the setting of $PATH as /sbin/init already do
206 this for us.
207
208 Added the if statement to detect if it is the first time the 'boot'
209 runlevel is executed (if [ "$RUNLEVEL" = "S" ] && [ "$argv1" = "boot" ]).
210 $RUNLEVEL is a env var set by /sbin/init.
211
212 Also added functionality to detect if the kernel have DEVFS support
213 compiled in; seems new users thinks devfs is unstable and as they do
214 not always read the docs, it does not get compiled in ;/ Should
215 make live for us a bit easier.
216
217 14 Dec 2001; Martin Schlemmer (azarah@gentoo.org): Fixed /sbin/rc to kill
218 a cosmetic bug in the part that stops all the unneeded services.
219
220 * rc-scripts 1.2.2 (8 Dec 2001)
221
222 10 Dec 2001; Added a localhost entry in /etc/hosts.
223
224 8 Dec 2001; Donny Davies (woodchip@gentoo.org): Added start-stop-daemon.c
225 to rc-scripts/sbin source. Moved rc-scripts/init.d/runscript.c to
226 rc-scripts/sbin/runscript.c. Added manpage for start-stop-daemon.
227 Start-stop-daemon is moved here from sysvinit by the way. There is stuff
228 in this ChangeLog that needs to be removed! Like the changes to hosts,
229 profile. /etc/{passwd,group} have minor UID and GID type fixes for
230 users ftp, postgres, xfs. Tweaked tarball.sh to not include CVS
231 directories.
232
233 29 Nov 2001; Donny Davies (woodchip@gentoo.org): Added a man directory
234 to rc-scripts. Checked in two manpages there, one for modules.autoload.5
235 and one for update-modules.8. These were adapted from Debian. Updated
236 tarball.sh to include the new man directory. Updated baselayout to install
237 these manpages. Slightly tweak the /etc/modules.autoload comments.
238
239 28 Nov 2001; Martin Schlemmer (azarah@gentoo.org): Updated /sbin/init
240 to work correctly with the 'gentoo=nodevfs' option, and cleaned
241 out old code.
242
243 Updated /etc/init.d/bootmisc with additional lock files to clean.
244
245 27 Nov 2001; Martin Schlemmer (azarah@gentoo.org): Updated
246 /etc/init.d/depscan.sh for a virtual 'use' depend, called 'logger'
247 that can be used for services that needs to have a logger started
248 before they are started. Updated /etc/conf.d/basic with $SYSLOGGER
249 that is used to define what loggers the 'logger' depend represent.
250
251 26 Nov 2001; Martin Schlemmer (azarah@gentoo.org): Updated
252 /etc/passwd and /etc/group with minor fixes to pass pwck and grpck.
253
254 25 Nov 2001; Martin Schlemmer (azarah@gentoo.org): Changed umask in
255 /etc/profile for the user to 077 for security.
256
257 Added a stop() function to /etc/init.d/clock. Also removed uneeded
258 'source /etc/rc.conf' line.
259
260 Updated /etc/init.d/hostname to set the hostname to 'localhost' if
261 /etc/hostname is invalid.
262
263 Updated /sbin/init to move the entries in /lib/dev-state to /dev before
264 running devfsd, as it did still not save settings properly. Also removed
265 old /dev-state/compat stuff.
266
267 25 Nov 2001; ncsd, the name service cache daemon script, has been removed
268 from the default "default" runlevel. It still exists in the archive so that
269 users who want/need it can add it easily.
270
271 25 Nov 2001; Updated the /etc/fstab; removed usbdevfs (explicitly mounted),
272 removed notail from the ext2 boot partition, other cleanups.
273
274 25 Nov 2001; Fixed init.d/clock script to work in UTC mode.
275
276 24 Nov 2001; Martin Schlemmer (azarah@gentoo.org): Added /etc/devfsd.conf
277 and updated /sbin/init to use a new scheme for saving /dev permissions.
278 Also moved /dev-state to /lib/dev-state which is a more standard location.
279
280 Fixed a ugly bug in /etc/init.d/depscan.sh. If a service depended on
281 itself, calling depscan.sh or changing runlevels cause a tempory effect
282 similar to a 'mini fork bomb'. Afterwards the depends was broken, and
283 changing runlevels did not want to work.
284
285 Updated /etc/init.d/halt.sh to terminate and display message for devfsd.
286 More cosmetic than anything else, but cant hurt with the new dev-state
287 scheme.
288
289 Updated /sbin/init to set the console log level to 1, so that bootup
290 can be much cleaner. Also updated /etc/init.d/modules not to have
291 a logger in it 'use' depends, as it should not be needed anymore.
292
293 Updated /sbin/rc to check if devfsd is still running between runlevel
294 changes.
295
296 Updated /etc/init.d/modules to run update-modules. We want to be sure
297 /etc/modules.conf is updated when running depmod -a.
298
299 Change ftp's uid to 21 in /etc/passwd (was the same as bind). Also
300 added a entry for xfs (X Font Server) in /etc/passwd and /etc/group.
301
302 Added /etc/init.d/net.ppp0, /etc/conf.d/net.ppp0 and
303 /usr/lib/ppp/chat-default as part of my new pppd scripts. Also
304 updated tarball.sh to handle ppp/chat-default.
305
306 Added /etc/skel/.bash* to make things cleaner.
307
308 Other minor changes.
309
310 17 Nov 2001; Donny Davies (woodchip@gentoo.org): Added /etc/shells file
311 to rc-scripts. Can remove it from sys-libs/shadow at the next release.
312
313 * rc-scripts 1.1.8 (15 Nov 2001)
314
315 16 Nov 2001; removed bogus "mountall.test" script.
316
317 15 Nov 2001; Martin Schlemmer (azarah@gentoo.org): Updated
318 init.d/{runscript.sh,depscan.sh}, sbin/rc to the new dep being 'use' not
319 'uses', as it fits better with 'need' (not 'needs'). Also removed unneeded
320 for loop from init.d/depscan.sh, and other fixes. Updated names of new
321 functions in init.d/runscript.sh to better sounding ones. Updated
322 init.d/modules, init.d/netmount to use 'use'. Lots of other fixes/cleanups.
323 Removed try() out of init.d/runscript.sh (why was this here ?).
324
325 14 Nov 2001; Martin Schlemmer (azarah@gentoo.org): init.d/bootmisc: Now
326 cleans /tmp. Also creates /etc/resolv.conf if it doesn't exist.
327
328 init.d/hostname: Added check for a valid /etc/hostname.
329
330 init.d/keymaps: Added check for valid $KEYMAP.
331
332 init.d/modules: Added sysklogd, metalog, syslog-ng as 'use' deps. This
333 should solve Woodchip's syslog+glue issue. We just have to change the
334 console loglevel for metalog and syslog-ng (sysklogd already updated) not to
335 output info and warnings, etc to the console, then boot will be much cleaner.
336 Also the install guide will need changing to add the loggers to 'boot' and
337 not 'default' runlevel.
338
339 init.d/mountall.test: Hopefully updated to the new rc-scripts style. Is
340 this really needed (I cannot see that it is used anywhere ...)?
341
342 13 Nov 2001; Martin Schlemmer (azarah@gentoo.org): Updated
343 init.d/runscript.sh, init.d/depscan.sh and sbin/rc with a new depend called
344 'uses'. It basically have the same usage as 'need', except that it do not
345 start services that is not in the current and 'boot' runlevels.
346
347 Updated init.d/netmount to use the 'uses' depend.
348
349 11 Nov 2001; Martin Schlemmer (azarah@gentoo.org): Fixed init.d/runscript.sh
350 not to destroy the 'need' depends in /${svcdir}/need. This caused subsequent
351 starting and stopping of services not to start depends.
352
353 7 Nov 2001; Martin Schlemmer (azarah@gentoo.org): Fixed a problem in sbin/rc
354 where the ${svcdir}/softscripts directory got destroyed before stopping
355 running services scheduled to be stopped. This with the fact that $SOFTLEVEL
356 was set too early, caused the services to be stopped in the wrong order.
357
358 30 Oct 2001; Martin Schlemmer (azarah@gentoo.org): Modified init.d/netmount to
359 check if any network filesystems is mounted.
360
361 29 Oct 2001; init.d/netmount: umount -art doesn't seem to work, so I added
362 some awk and grep magic to find all remote filesystems and umount them.
363
364 29 Oct 2001; Martin Schlemmer (azarah@gentoo.org): A fix for checkroot
365 (missing "/"); it now actually checks the root filesystem. Also, a
366 localmount cleanliness fix.
367
368 * rc-scripts 1.1.7 (18 Oct 2001)
