5 woodchip 1.13 29 Nov 2001; Donny Davies (woodchip@gentoo.org): Added a man directory
6     to rc-scripts. Checked in two manpages there, one for modules.autoload.5
7 woodchip 1.14 and one for update-modules.8. These were adapted from Debian. Updated
8     tarball.sh to include the new man directory. Updated baselayout to install
9     these manpages. Slightly tweak the /etc/modules.autoload comments.
10 woodchip 1.13
11 drobbins 1.15 28 Nov 2001; Martin Schlemmer (azarah@gentoo.org): Updated /sbin/init
12     to work correctly with the 'gentoo=nodevfs' option, and cleaned
13     out old code.
14    
15     Updated /etc/init.d/bootmisc with additional lock files to clean.
16    
17     Updated /etc/init.d/hdparm to check if devfs is used.
18    
19     27 Nov 2001; Martin Schlemmer (azarah@gentoo.org): Updated
20     /etc/init.d/depscan.sh for a virtual 'use' depend, called 'logger'
21     that can be used for services that needs to have a logger started
22     before they are started. Updated /etc/conf.d/basic with $SYSLOGGER
23     that is used to define what loggers the 'logger' depend represent.
24     Also updated /etc/init.d/hdparm and /etc/init.d/modules to use
25     this new depend.
26    
27     26 Nov 2001; Martin Schlemmer (azarah@gentoo.org): Updated
28     /etc/passwd and /etc/group with minor fixes to pass pwck and grpck.
29    
30     25 Nov 2001; Martin Schlemmer (azarah@gentoo.org): Changed umask in
31     /etc/profile for the user to 077 for security.
32    
33     Added a localhost line to /etc/hosts after yet another post to gentoo-user.
34     I cant see any problem with this, and since nobody else wants to take the
35     plunge ....
36    
37     Added a stop() function to /etc/init.d/clock. Also removed uneeded
38     'source /etc/rc.conf' line.
39    
40     Updated /etc/init.d/hostname to set the hostname to 'localhost' if
41     /etc/hostname is invalid.
42    
43     Updated /etc/init.d/hdparm to display a [ok] for each drive it optimizes.
44    
45     Updated /sbin/init to move the entries in /lib/dev-state to /dev before
46     running devfsd, as it did still not save settings properly. Also removed
47     old /dev-state/compat stuff.
48    
49     Removed a stupid bug out of /sbin/init ... /lib/dev-state/* was moved
50     to /dev *before* /dev was mounted.
51    
52     Seems the .keep files in /lib/dev-state/pts and /lib/dev-state/shm
53     caused /sbin/init to lock while moving /lib/dev-state/* to /dev. Added
54     the needed fixes to the baselayout ebuild.
55    
56     On second thoughts, removed the 'try' out of the code that moves
57     /lib/dev-state/* to /dev, since this is not a critical task, and
58     booting will still continue on failure.
59    
60 drobbins 1.12 25 Nov 2001; ncsd, the name service cache daemon script, has been removed
61     from the default "default" runlevel. It still exists in the archive so that
62 drobbins 1.15 users who want/need it can add it easily.
63 drobbins 1.12
64 drobbins 1.11 25 Nov 2001; Updated the /etc/fstab; removed usbdevfs (explicitly mounted),
65 drobbins 1.15 removed notail from the ext2 boot partition, other cleanups.
66 drobbins 1.11
67 drobbins 1.10 25 Nov 2001; Fixed init.d/clock script to work in UTC mode.
68 drobbins 1.15
69     24 Nov 2001; Martin Schlemmer (azarah@gentoo.org): Added /etc/devfsd.conf
70     and updated /sbin/init to use a new scheme for saving /dev permissions.
71     Also moved /dev-state to /lib/dev-state which is a more standard location.
72    
73     Added /etc/conf.d and moved rc.conf there as /etc/conf.d/basic. Created
74     /etc/rc.conf again as a blank file .. the website should be updated to
75     say that the user should look in /etc/conf.d/* for stuff to configure.
76    
77     Added /etc/init.d/hdparm and /etc/conf.d/hdparm; a script and config
78     file for setting generic optimizations for the disk drives.
79    
80     Fixed a ugly bug in /etc/init.d/depscan.sh. If a service depended on
81     itself, calling depscan.sh or changing runlevels cause a tempory effect
82     similar to a 'mini fork bomb'. Afterwards the depends was broken, and
83     changing runlevels did not want to work.
84    
85     Updated /etc/init.d/halt.sh to terminate and display message for devfsd.
86     More cosmetic than anything else, but cant hurt with the new dev-state
87     scheme.
88    
89     Removed config stuff from /etc/init.d/net.eth0, and moved it to
90     /etc/conf.d/net.eth0. Also added a comment to this effect.
91    
92     Removed config stuff from /etc/init.d/net.eth0-dhcp, and moved it to
93     /etc/conf.d/net.eth0-dhcp. Also added a comment to this effect.
94    
95     Updated gentoo-src/rc-scripts/rc-lists/default to add /etc/init.d/hdparm
96     to the default runlevel.
97    
98     Updated /sbin/init to set the console log level to 1, so that bootup
99     can be much cleaner. Also updated /etc/init.d/modules not to have
100     a logger in it 'use' depends, as it should not be needed anymore.
101    
102     Updated /sbin/rc to check if devfsd is still running between runlevel
103     changes.
104    
105     Updated /etc/init.d/modules to run update-modules. We want to be sure
106     /etc/modules.conf is updated when running depmod -a.
107    
108     Change ftp's uid to 21 in /etc/passwd (was the same as bind). Also
109     added a entry for xfs (X Font Server) in /etc/passwd and /etc/group.
110    
111     Added /etc/init.d/net.ppp0, /etc/conf.d/net.ppp0 and
112     /usr/lib/ppp/chat-default as part of my new pppd scripts. Also
113     updated tarball.sh to handle ppp/chat-default.
114    
115     Added /etc/skel/.bash* to make things cleaner and set $INPUTRC.
116    
117     Minor changes I forgot about.
118    
119 woodchip 1.9 17 Nov 2001; Donny Davies (woodchip@gentoo.org): Added /etc/shells file
120     to rc-scripts. Can remove it from sys-libs/shadow at the next release.
121    
122 drobbins 1.8 * rc-scripts 1.1.8 (15 Nov 2001)
123    
124     16 Nov 2001; removed bogus "mountall.test" script.
125 drobbins 1.7
126 drobbins 1.8 15 Nov 2001; Martin Schlemmer (azarah@gentoo.org): Updated
127     init.d/{runscript.sh,depscan.sh}, sbin/rc to the new dep being 'use' not
128     'uses', as it fits better with 'need' (not 'needs'). Also removed unneeded
129     for loop from init.d/depscan.sh, and other fixes. Updated names of new
130     functions in init.d/runscript.sh to better sounding ones. Updated
131     init.d/modules, init.d/netmount to use 'use'. Lots of other fixes/cleanups.
132     Removed try() out of init.d/runscript.sh (why was this here ?).
133    
134     14 Nov 2001; Martin Schlemmer (azarah@gentoo.org): init.d/bootmisc: Now
135 drobbins 1.15 cleans /tmp. Also creates /etc/resolv.conf if it doesn't exist.
136 drobbins 1.8
137 drobbins 1.15 init.d/hostname: Added check for a valid /etc/hostname.
138 drobbins 1.8
139 drobbins 1.15 init.d/keymaps: Added check for valid $KEYMAP.
140 drobbins 1.8
141 drobbins 1.15 init.d/modules: Added sysklogd, metalog, syslog-ng as 'use' deps. This
142     should solve Woodchip's syslog+glue issue. We just have to change the
143     console loglevel for metalog and syslog-ng (sysklogd already updated) not to
144     output info and warnings, etc to the console, then boot will be much cleaner.
145     Also the install guide will need changing to add the loggers to 'boot' and
146     not 'default' runlevel.
147 drobbins 1.8
148 drobbins 1.15 init.d/mountall.test: Hopefully updated to the new rc-scripts style. Is
149     this really needed (I cannot see that it is used anywhere ...)?
150 drobbins 1.8
151     13 Nov 2001; Martin Schlemmer (azarah@gentoo.org): Updated
152 drobbins 1.15 init.d/runscript.sh, init.d/depscan.sh and sbin/rc with a new depend called
153     'uses'. It basically have the same usage as 'need', except that it do not
154     start services that is not in the current and 'boot' runlevels.
155 drobbins 1.8
156 drobbins 1.15 Updated init.d/netmount to use the 'uses' depend.
157 drobbins 1.8
158     11 Nov 2001; Martin Schlemmer (azarah@gentoo.org): Fixed init.d/runscript.sh
159     not to destroy the 'need' depends in /${svcdir}/need. This caused subsequent
160     starting and stopping of services not to start depends.
161    
162     7 Nov 2001; Martin Schlemmer (azarah@gentoo.org): Fixed a problem in sbin/rc
163     where the ${svcdir}/softscripts directory got destroyed before stopping
164     running services scheduled to be stopped. This with the fact that $SOFTLEVEL
165     was set too early, caused the services to be stopped in the wrong order.
166    
167     30 Oct 2001; Martin Schlemmer (azarah@gentoo.org): Modified init.d/netmount to
168     check if any network filesystems is mounted.
169    
170     29 Oct 2001; init.d/netmount: umount -art doesn't seem to work, so I added
171     some awk and grep magic to find all remote filesystems and umount them.
172    
173     29 Oct 2001; Martin Schlemmer (azarah@gentoo.org): A fix for checkroot
174     (missing "/"); it now actually checks the root filesystem. Also, a
175     localmount cleanliness fix.
176 drobbins 1.6
177     * rc-scripts 1.1.7 (18 Oct 2001)
178    
179     [old changelog format follows]
180 drobbins 1.5
181     *lots of scripts; woodchip
182     removed old rc5 scripts from cvs
183    
184     *init.d/runscript.sh; agriffis
185     Added support for rc.conf and home-grown functions
186    
187     *init.d/modules;
188 drobbins 1.4 Now correctly looks at /etc/modules.autoload
189    
190 drobbins 1.3 rc-scripts-1.1.6, released 15 Sep 2001
191     ======================================
192    
193     *init.d/runscript.sh, others
194     Handling of "net" dependencies resolve to all net devices in
195     /etc/runlevels/boot and /etc/runlevels/[curr-runlevel]. INTERFACES
196     variable in /etc/rc.conf has been removed.
197    
198 drobbins 1.2 *init.d/runscript.sh
199     New "zap" option for manually resetting the state of an initscript
200     to stopped.
201    
202     *init.d/{samba,sysklogd,sshd}
203     Removed from CVS; they live in their respective packages.
204    
205 drobbins 1.1 rc-scripts-1.1.5, released 02 Sep 2001
206     ====================================
207    
208     *sbin/rc-update
209     New version of the rc-update command for the new initscripts. Works
210     similarly to the old version, except this one updates our dependency
211     cache.
212    
213     *init.d/functions.sh
214     New and better looking informational message functions (einfo, einfon).
215     Brand new message functions (ewarn).
216    
217     *sbin/init, init.d/checkroot
218     We're going back to a /proc/mounts-based mtab symlink because it's
219     just plain better. Appropriate changes made.
