/etc/mtab is now a true reflection on /proc/mounts. The only exception is that we punt any / on tmpfs entry, #194615.

4 29 Oct 2007; Roy Marples <uberlord@gentoo.org>:
5
6 /etc/mtab is now a true reflection on /proc/mounts.
7 The only exception is that we punt any / on tmpfs entry, #194615.
8
9 Network config arrays are now split by embedded new lines instead of
10 being evaled into space separated values. This makes it easier to read,
11 maintain and document as discussed on gentoo-dev.
12
13 23 Oct 2007; Roy Marples <uberlord@gentoo.org>:
14
15 clock init script now works with busybox hwclock.
16 clock init script now handles /etc/adjtime correctly.
17 CLOCK_ADJTIME hinted that it could change the location of /etc/adjtime.
18 This is not the case.
19
20 19 Oct 2007; Roy Marples <uberlord@gentoo.org>:
21
22 Mount /dev/shm for Linux systems, even not when in /etc/fstab, #196345.
23
24 16 Oct 2007; Roy Marples <uberlord@gentoo.org>:
25
26 We now build and optionally work with static libraries.
27
28 15 Oct 2007; Roy Marples <uberlord@gentoo.org>:
29
30 rc-status now orders services in start order, #195630
31
32 * baselayout-2.0.0_rc5 (11 Oct 2007)
33
34 11 Oct 2007; Roy Marples <uberlord@gentoo.org>:
35
36 Bump librc and libeinfo to .so.1
37 If / block device as in /etc/fstab does not exist, use /dev/root if
38 it's available in checkroot, #171593.
39
40 09 Oct 2007; Roy Marples <uberlord@gentoo.org>:
41
42 netmount, localmount, halt.sh and net scripts now check OS specific flags
43 to see if a mount is network mounted (linux = fstab, *bsd = "local" in
44 mount options) or not, #192772.
45 txqueuelen_eth0= now works, #190538.
46
47 03 Oct 2007; Roy Marples <uberlord@gentoo.org>:
48
49 librc.so and libeinfo.so now have symbol versions.
50 Default to tunctl so we can create the device as a specific
51 user, #194588 thanks to Jaco Kroon.
52
53 28 Sep 2007; Roy Marples <uberlord@gentoo.org>:
54
55 rc_service_state now returns the state as a mask, which means that
56 we can do things with just the one call making is more efficient.
57 keymaps now sets unicode keyboard on all defined ttys, #192442
58 thanks to Pacho Ramos.
59 net.sh now checks to see if root is net mounted if no predown function
60 exists, #194074.
61 enums are now fixed to specific values and are in UPPER CASE.
62
63 26 Sep 2007; Roy Marples <uberlord@gentoo.org>:
64
65 rc_is_env is now rc_env_bool and just works with boolean values.
66 errno is set when it's not a boolean or does not exist.
67
68 25 Sep 2007; Mike Frysinger <vapier@gentoo.org>:
69
70 Skip consolefont setup when RC_TTY_NUMBER is set to 0.
71
72 Add support for describing the options in the C programs.
73
74 Retain behavior where `rc-update del foo` deletes foo from all runlevels.
75
76 Retain behavior where `rc-update del` warns if nothing changed.
77
78 24 Sep 2007; Mike Frysinger <vapier@gentoo.org>:
79
80 Do not require portmap in netmount when nolock option is used with nfs
81 mounts and fixup the test so that it actually works.
82
83 24 Sep 2007; Roy Marples <uberlord@gentoo.org>:
84
85 Fix pppd metric, #193574 thanks to Martin Väth.
86
87 21 Sep 2007; Roy Marples <uberlord@gentoo.org>:
88
89 Use a pty for prefixed output instead of pipes for stdout/stderr. This
90 is so that programs can get information about the controlling terminal.
91 This change was triggered by bug #188506 where it's possible that
92 stdin, stdout and stderr didn't point to a terminal but ended up on one
93 via our pipes. Using a pty means that stdout and stderr always point to
94 a terminal, but we lose the ability to tell them apart.
95 If there is not a pty available then we use un-prefixed output as normal.
96 This change has also introduced the need for a signal pipe so that
97 SIGCHLD can exit the loop cleanly.
98
99 20 Sep 2007; Roy Marples <uberlord@gentoo.org>:
100
101 libeinfo now works out the number of columns from stdout rather than
102 stdin, #188506.
103
104 19 Sep 2007; Roy Marples <uberlord@gentoo.org>:
105
106 Added the checkown applet based on the work by Renato Caldas, #192682
107 checkdir ensures that the specified files (or directories) are owned
108 by the current user/group or as specified on the command line. You can
109 optionally check permissions too.
110
111 Change from /lib/rcscripts to /lib/rc and adjust our files so changing
112 our libdir is much easier in future. This move makes sense it's so much
113 more than a holding place for our scripts now. It also has the added
114 benefit of not loading the splash plugin for rc4 and lower which is
115 ABI incompatible with us now.
116
117 plugin hook function is now rc_plugin_hook instead of a name based
118 on the name of the plugin.
119
120 18 Sep 2007; Roy Marples <uberlord@gentoo.org>:
121
122 Only mount /sys if it's not mounted, #192436.
123
124 API changes!
125
126 rc_ls_dir, rc_get_config and rc_get_list no longer take a starting list
127 as a first argument. Instead, use rc_strlist_join to append or prepend
128 the new list to an existing list.
129
130 rc_strlist_add and friends now take char *** instead of char ** and
131 return a pointer to the item added instead of the new list head. This is
132 so we can easily tell if the item was successfully added or not instead
133 of iterating through the list looking for it.
134
135 list = rc_strlist_add (list, item);
136 becomes
137 rc_strlist_add (&list, item);
138
139 17 Sep 2007; Roy Marples <uberlord@gentoo.org>:
140
141 Document the preferance of wpa_supplicant, #192828.
142
143 09 Sep 2007; Mike Frysinger <vapier@gentoo.org>:
144
145 Allow people to specify a list of dirs to clean in bootmisc #191807. Force
146 the +t bit on /tmp and /var/tmp paths.
147
148 04 Sep 2007; Roy Marples <uberlord@gentoo.org>:
149
150 start-stop-daemon now works with userids correctly when a pidfile
151 is not specified, #191206.
152
153 02 Sep 2007; Mike Frysinger <vapier@gentoo.org>:
154
155 Always attempt to mount /dev/pts when devpts is available as it may appear
156 in some 2.4 setups.
157

230
231 31 Jul 2007; Roy Marples <uberlord@gentoo.org>:

419
420 13 Apr 2007; Roy Marples <uberlord@gentoo.org>:
421
422 Fix module loading, #174360.
423 s-s-d now changes group when changing user, #174362.
424 netmask -> CIDR is worked out correctly #174341.
425
426 * baselayout-2.0.0_alpha1 (11 Apr 2007)
427
428 07 Apr 2007; Mike Frysinger <vapier@gentoo.org>:
429
430 "modules-update" -> "update-modules".
431
432 05 Apr 2007; Roy Marples <uberlord@gentoo.org>:
433
434 Rewrite the core parts in C. We now provide librc so other programs can
435 query runlevels, services and state without using bash. We also provide
436 libeinfo so other programs can easily use our informational functions.
437
438 As such, we have dropped the requirement of using bash as the init script
439 shell. We now use /bin/sh and have strived to make the scripts as portable
440 as possible. Shells that work are bash and dash. busybox works provided
441 you disable s-s-d. If you have WIPE_TMP set to yes in conf.d/bootmisc you
442 should disable find too.
443 zsh and ksh do not work at this time.
444
445 Networking support is currently being re-vamped also as it was heavily bash
446 array based. As such, a new config format is available like so
447 config_eth0="1.2.3.4/24 5.6.7.8/16"
448 or like so
449 config_eth0="'1.2.3.4 netmask 255.255.255.0' '5.6.7.8 netmask 255.255.0.0'"
450
451 We will still support the old bash array format provided that /bin/sh IS
452 a link it bash.
453
454 ChangeLog for baselayout-1 can be found in our SVN repo.
