5 woodchip 1.16 * rc-scripts 1.2.2 (8 Dec 2001)
6    
7     8 Dec 2001; Donny Davies (woodchip@gentoo.org): Added start-stop-daemon.c
8     to rc-scripts/sbin source. Moved rc-scripts/init.d/runscript.c to
9     rc-scripts/sbin/runscript.c. Added manpage for start-stop-daemon.
10     Start-stop-daemon is moved here from sysvinit by the way. There is stuff
11     in this ChangeLog that needs to be removed! Like the changes to hosts,
12     profile. /etc/{passwd,group} have minor UID and GID type fixes for
13     users ftp, postgres, xfs.
14    
15 woodchip 1.13 29 Nov 2001; Donny Davies (woodchip@gentoo.org): Added a man directory
16     to rc-scripts. Checked in two manpages there, one for modules.autoload.5
17 woodchip 1.14 and one for update-modules.8. These were adapted from Debian. Updated
18     tarball.sh to include the new man directory. Updated baselayout to install
19     these manpages. Slightly tweak the /etc/modules.autoload comments.
20 woodchip 1.13
21 drobbins 1.15 28 Nov 2001; Martin Schlemmer (azarah@gentoo.org): Updated /sbin/init
22     to work correctly with the 'gentoo=nodevfs' option, and cleaned
23     out old code.
24    
25     Updated /etc/init.d/bootmisc with additional lock files to clean.
26    
27     Updated /etc/init.d/hdparm to check if devfs is used.
28    
29     27 Nov 2001; Martin Schlemmer (azarah@gentoo.org): Updated
30     /etc/init.d/depscan.sh for a virtual 'use' depend, called 'logger'
31     that can be used for services that needs to have a logger started
32     before they are started. Updated /etc/conf.d/basic with $SYSLOGGER
33     that is used to define what loggers the 'logger' depend represent.
34     Also updated /etc/init.d/hdparm and /etc/init.d/modules to use
35     this new depend.
36    
37     26 Nov 2001; Martin Schlemmer (azarah@gentoo.org): Updated
38     /etc/passwd and /etc/group with minor fixes to pass pwck and grpck.
39    
40     25 Nov 2001; Martin Schlemmer (azarah@gentoo.org): Changed umask in
41     /etc/profile for the user to 077 for security.
42    
43     Added a localhost line to /etc/hosts after yet another post to gentoo-user.
44     I cant see any problem with this, and since nobody else wants to take the
45     plunge ....
46    
47     Added a stop() function to /etc/init.d/clock. Also removed uneeded
48     'source /etc/rc.conf' line.
49    
50     Updated /etc/init.d/hostname to set the hostname to 'localhost' if
51     /etc/hostname is invalid.
52    
53     Updated /etc/init.d/hdparm to display a [ok] for each drive it optimizes.
54    
55     Updated /sbin/init to move the entries in /lib/dev-state to /dev before
56     running devfsd, as it did still not save settings properly. Also removed
57     old /dev-state/compat stuff.
58    
59     Removed a stupid bug out of /sbin/init ... /lib/dev-state/* was moved
60     to /dev *before* /dev was mounted.
61    
62     Seems the .keep files in /lib/dev-state/pts and /lib/dev-state/shm
63     caused /sbin/init to lock while moving /lib/dev-state/* to /dev. Added
64     the needed fixes to the baselayout ebuild.
65    
66     On second thoughts, removed the 'try' out of the code that moves
67     /lib/dev-state/* to /dev, since this is not a critical task, and
68     booting will still continue on failure.
69    
70 drobbins 1.12 25 Nov 2001; ncsd, the name service cache daemon script, has been removed
71     from the default "default" runlevel. It still exists in the archive so that
72 drobbins 1.15 users who want/need it can add it easily.
73 drobbins 1.12
74 drobbins 1.11 25 Nov 2001; Updated the /etc/fstab; removed usbdevfs (explicitly mounted),
75 drobbins 1.15 removed notail from the ext2 boot partition, other cleanups.
76 drobbins 1.11
77 drobbins 1.10 25 Nov 2001; Fixed init.d/clock script to work in UTC mode.
78 drobbins 1.15
79     24 Nov 2001; Martin Schlemmer (azarah@gentoo.org): Added /etc/devfsd.conf
80     and updated /sbin/init to use a new scheme for saving /dev permissions.
81     Also moved /dev-state to /lib/dev-state which is a more standard location.
82    
83     Added /etc/conf.d and moved rc.conf there as /etc/conf.d/basic. Created
84     /etc/rc.conf again as a blank file .. the website should be updated to
85     say that the user should look in /etc/conf.d/* for stuff to configure.
86    
87     Added /etc/init.d/hdparm and /etc/conf.d/hdparm; a script and config
88     file for setting generic optimizations for the disk drives.
89    
90     Fixed a ugly bug in /etc/init.d/depscan.sh. If a service depended on
91     itself, calling depscan.sh or changing runlevels cause a tempory effect
92     similar to a 'mini fork bomb'. Afterwards the depends was broken, and
93     changing runlevels did not want to work.
94    
95     Updated /etc/init.d/halt.sh to terminate and display message for devfsd.
96     More cosmetic than anything else, but cant hurt with the new dev-state
97     scheme.
98    
99     Removed config stuff from /etc/init.d/net.eth0, and moved it to
100     /etc/conf.d/net.eth0. Also added a comment to this effect.
101    
102     Removed config stuff from /etc/init.d/net.eth0-dhcp, and moved it to
103     /etc/conf.d/net.eth0-dhcp. Also added a comment to this effect.
104    
105     Updated gentoo-src/rc-scripts/rc-lists/default to add /etc/init.d/hdparm
106     to the default runlevel.
107    
108     Updated /sbin/init to set the console log level to 1, so that bootup
109     can be much cleaner. Also updated /etc/init.d/modules not to have
110     a logger in it 'use' depends, as it should not be needed anymore.
111    
112     Updated /sbin/rc to check if devfsd is still running between runlevel
113     changes.
114    
115     Updated /etc/init.d/modules to run update-modules. We want to be sure
116     /etc/modules.conf is updated when running depmod -a.
117    
118     Change ftp's uid to 21 in /etc/passwd (was the same as bind). Also
119     added a entry for xfs (X Font Server) in /etc/passwd and /etc/group.
120    
121     Added /etc/init.d/net.ppp0, /etc/conf.d/net.ppp0 and
122     /usr/lib/ppp/chat-default as part of my new pppd scripts. Also
123     updated tarball.sh to handle ppp/chat-default.
124    
125     Added /etc/skel/.bash* to make things cleaner and set $INPUTRC.
126    
127     Minor changes I forgot about.
128    
129 woodchip 1.9 17 Nov 2001; Donny Davies (woodchip@gentoo.org): Added /etc/shells file
130     to rc-scripts. Can remove it from sys-libs/shadow at the next release.
131    
132 drobbins 1.8 * rc-scripts 1.1.8 (15 Nov 2001)
133    
134     16 Nov 2001; removed bogus "mountall.test" script.
135 drobbins 1.7
136 drobbins 1.8 15 Nov 2001; Martin Schlemmer (azarah@gentoo.org): Updated
137     init.d/{runscript.sh,depscan.sh}, sbin/rc to the new dep being 'use' not
138     'uses', as it fits better with 'need' (not 'needs'). Also removed unneeded
139     for loop from init.d/depscan.sh, and other fixes. Updated names of new
140     functions in init.d/runscript.sh to better sounding ones. Updated
141     init.d/modules, init.d/netmount to use 'use'. Lots of other fixes/cleanups.
142     Removed try() out of init.d/runscript.sh (why was this here ?).
143    
144     14 Nov 2001; Martin Schlemmer (azarah@gentoo.org): init.d/bootmisc: Now
145 drobbins 1.15 cleans /tmp. Also creates /etc/resolv.conf if it doesn't exist.
146 drobbins 1.8
147 drobbins 1.15 init.d/hostname: Added check for a valid /etc/hostname.
148 drobbins 1.8
149 drobbins 1.15 init.d/keymaps: Added check for valid $KEYMAP.
150 drobbins 1.8
151 drobbins 1.15 init.d/modules: Added sysklogd, metalog, syslog-ng as 'use' deps. This
152     should solve Woodchip's syslog+glue issue. We just have to change the
153     console loglevel for metalog and syslog-ng (sysklogd already updated) not to
154     output info and warnings, etc to the console, then boot will be much cleaner.
155     Also the install guide will need changing to add the loggers to 'boot' and
156     not 'default' runlevel.
157 drobbins 1.8
158 drobbins 1.15 init.d/mountall.test: Hopefully updated to the new rc-scripts style. Is
159     this really needed (I cannot see that it is used anywhere ...)?
160 drobbins 1.8
161     13 Nov 2001; Martin Schlemmer (azarah@gentoo.org): Updated
162 drobbins 1.15 init.d/runscript.sh, init.d/depscan.sh and sbin/rc with a new depend called
163     'uses'. It basically have the same usage as 'need', except that it do not
164     start services that is not in the current and 'boot' runlevels.
165 drobbins 1.8
166 drobbins 1.15 Updated init.d/netmount to use the 'uses' depend.
167 drobbins 1.8
168     11 Nov 2001; Martin Schlemmer (azarah@gentoo.org): Fixed init.d/runscript.sh
169     not to destroy the 'need' depends in /${svcdir}/need. This caused subsequent
170     starting and stopping of services not to start depends.
171    
172     7 Nov 2001; Martin Schlemmer (azarah@gentoo.org): Fixed a problem in sbin/rc
173     where the ${svcdir}/softscripts directory got destroyed before stopping
174     running services scheduled to be stopped. This with the fact that $SOFTLEVEL
175     was set too early, caused the services to be stopped in the wrong order.
176    
177     30 Oct 2001; Martin Schlemmer (azarah@gentoo.org): Modified init.d/netmount to
178     check if any network filesystems is mounted.
179    
180     29 Oct 2001; init.d/netmount: umount -art doesn't seem to work, so I added
181     some awk and grep magic to find all remote filesystems and umount them.
182    
183     29 Oct 2001; Martin Schlemmer (azarah@gentoo.org): A fix for checkroot
184     (missing "/"); it now actually checks the root filesystem. Also, a
185     localmount cleanliness fix.
186 drobbins 1.6
187     * rc-scripts 1.1.7 (18 Oct 2001)
188

199    
200 drobbins 1.3 rc-scripts-1.1.6, released 15 Sep 2001
201     ======================================
202    
203     *init.d/runscript.sh, others
204     Handling of "net" dependencies resolve to all net devices in
205     /etc/runlevels/boot and /etc/runlevels/[curr-runlevel]. INTERFACES
206     variable in /etc/rc.conf has been removed.
207    
208 drobbins 1.2 *init.d/runscript.sh
209     New "zap" option for manually resetting the state of an initscript
210     to stopped.
211    
212     *init.d/{samba,sysklogd,sshd}

216     ====================================
217    
218     *sbin/rc-update
219     New version of the rc-update command for the new initscripts. Works
220     similarly to the old version, except this one updates our dependency
221     cache.
222    
223     *init.d/functions.sh
224     New and better looking informational message functions (einfo, einfon).
225     Brand new message functions (ewarn).
226    
227     *sbin/init, init.d/checkroot
228     We're going back to a /proc/mounts-based mtab symlink because it's
229     just plain better. Appropriate changes made.
