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 woodchip 1.17 users ftp, postgres, xfs. Tweaked tarball.sh to not include CVS
14     directories.
15 woodchip 1.16
16 woodchip 1.13 29 Nov 2001; Donny Davies (woodchip@gentoo.org): Added a man directory
17     to rc-scripts. Checked in two manpages there, one for modules.autoload.5
18 woodchip 1.14 and one for update-modules.8. These were adapted from Debian. Updated
19     tarball.sh to include the new man directory. Updated baselayout to install
20     these manpages. Slightly tweak the /etc/modules.autoload comments.
21 woodchip 1.13
22 drobbins 1.15 28 Nov 2001; Martin Schlemmer (azarah@gentoo.org): Updated /sbin/init
23     to work correctly with the 'gentoo=nodevfs' option, and cleaned
24     out old code.
25    
26     Updated /etc/init.d/bootmisc with additional lock files to clean.
27    
28     Updated /etc/init.d/hdparm to check if devfs is used.
29    
30     27 Nov 2001; Martin Schlemmer (azarah@gentoo.org): Updated
31     /etc/init.d/depscan.sh for a virtual 'use' depend, called 'logger'
32     that can be used for services that needs to have a logger started
33     before they are started. Updated /etc/conf.d/basic with $SYSLOGGER
34     that is used to define what loggers the 'logger' depend represent.
35     Also updated /etc/init.d/hdparm and /etc/init.d/modules to use
36     this new depend.
37    
38     26 Nov 2001; Martin Schlemmer (azarah@gentoo.org): Updated
39     /etc/passwd and /etc/group with minor fixes to pass pwck and grpck.
40    
41     25 Nov 2001; Martin Schlemmer (azarah@gentoo.org): Changed umask in
42     /etc/profile for the user to 077 for security.
43    
44     Added a localhost line to /etc/hosts after yet another post to gentoo-user.
45     I cant see any problem with this, and since nobody else wants to take the
46     plunge ....
47    
48     Added a stop() function to /etc/init.d/clock. Also removed uneeded
49     'source /etc/rc.conf' line.
50    
51     Updated /etc/init.d/hostname to set the hostname to 'localhost' if
52     /etc/hostname is invalid.
53    
54     Updated /etc/init.d/hdparm to display a [ok] for each drive it optimizes.
55    
56     Updated /sbin/init to move the entries in /lib/dev-state to /dev before
57     running devfsd, as it did still not save settings properly. Also removed
58     old /dev-state/compat stuff.
59    
60     Removed a stupid bug out of /sbin/init ... /lib/dev-state/* was moved
61     to /dev *before* /dev was mounted.
62    
63     Seems the .keep files in /lib/dev-state/pts and /lib/dev-state/shm
64     caused /sbin/init to lock while moving /lib/dev-state/* to /dev. Added
65     the needed fixes to the baselayout ebuild.
66    
67     On second thoughts, removed the 'try' out of the code that moves
68     /lib/dev-state/* to /dev, since this is not a critical task, and
69     booting will still continue on failure.
70    
71 drobbins 1.12 25 Nov 2001; ncsd, the name service cache daemon script, has been removed
72     from the default "default" runlevel. It still exists in the archive so that
73 drobbins 1.15 users who want/need it can add it easily.
74 drobbins 1.12
75 drobbins 1.11 25 Nov 2001; Updated the /etc/fstab; removed usbdevfs (explicitly mounted),
76 drobbins 1.15 removed notail from the ext2 boot partition, other cleanups.
77 drobbins 1.11
78 drobbins 1.10 25 Nov 2001; Fixed init.d/clock script to work in UTC mode.
79 drobbins 1.15
80     24 Nov 2001; Martin Schlemmer (azarah@gentoo.org): Added /etc/devfsd.conf
81     and updated /sbin/init to use a new scheme for saving /dev permissions.
82     Also moved /dev-state to /lib/dev-state which is a more standard location.
83    
84     Added /etc/conf.d and moved rc.conf there as /etc/conf.d/basic. Created
85     /etc/rc.conf again as a blank file .. the website should be updated to
86     say that the user should look in /etc/conf.d/* for stuff to configure.
87    
88     Added /etc/init.d/hdparm and /etc/conf.d/hdparm; a script and config
89     file for setting generic optimizations for the disk drives.
90    
91     Fixed a ugly bug in /etc/init.d/depscan.sh. If a service depended on
92     itself, calling depscan.sh or changing runlevels cause a tempory effect
93     similar to a 'mini fork bomb'. Afterwards the depends was broken, and
94     changing runlevels did not want to work.
95    
96     Updated /etc/init.d/halt.sh to terminate and display message for devfsd.
97     More cosmetic than anything else, but cant hurt with the new dev-state
98     scheme.
99    
100     Removed config stuff from /etc/init.d/net.eth0, and moved it to
101     /etc/conf.d/net.eth0. Also added a comment to this effect.
102    
103     Removed config stuff from /etc/init.d/net.eth0-dhcp, and moved it to
104     /etc/conf.d/net.eth0-dhcp. Also added a comment to this effect.
105    
106     Updated gentoo-src/rc-scripts/rc-lists/default to add /etc/init.d/hdparm
107     to the default runlevel.
108    
109     Updated /sbin/init to set the console log level to 1, so that bootup
110     can be much cleaner. Also updated /etc/init.d/modules not to have
111     a logger in it 'use' depends, as it should not be needed anymore.
112    
113     Updated /sbin/rc to check if devfsd is still running between runlevel
114     changes.
115    
116     Updated /etc/init.d/modules to run update-modules. We want to be sure
117     /etc/modules.conf is updated when running depmod -a.
118    
119     Change ftp's uid to 21 in /etc/passwd (was the same as bind). Also
120     added a entry for xfs (X Font Server) in /etc/passwd and /etc/group.
121    
122     Added /etc/init.d/net.ppp0, /etc/conf.d/net.ppp0 and
123     /usr/lib/ppp/chat-default as part of my new pppd scripts. Also
124     updated tarball.sh to handle ppp/chat-default.
125    
126     Added /etc/skel/.bash* to make things cleaner and set $INPUTRC.
127    
128     Minor changes I forgot about.
129    
130 woodchip 1.9 17 Nov 2001; Donny Davies (woodchip@gentoo.org): Added /etc/shells file
131     to rc-scripts. Can remove it from sys-libs/shadow at the next release.
132    
133 drobbins 1.8 * rc-scripts 1.1.8 (15 Nov 2001)
134    
135     16 Nov 2001; removed bogus "mountall.test" script.
136 drobbins 1.7
137 drobbins 1.8 15 Nov 2001; Martin Schlemmer (azarah@gentoo.org): Updated
138     init.d/{runscript.sh,depscan.sh}, sbin/rc to the new dep being 'use' not
139     'uses', as it fits better with 'need' (not 'needs'). Also removed unneeded
140     for loop from init.d/depscan.sh, and other fixes. Updated names of new
141     functions in init.d/runscript.sh to better sounding ones. Updated
142     init.d/modules, init.d/netmount to use 'use'. Lots of other fixes/cleanups.
143     Removed try() out of init.d/runscript.sh (why was this here ?).
144    
145     14 Nov 2001; Martin Schlemmer (azarah@gentoo.org): init.d/bootmisc: Now
146 drobbins 1.15 cleans /tmp. Also creates /etc/resolv.conf if it doesn't exist.
147 drobbins 1.8
148 drobbins 1.15 init.d/hostname: Added check for a valid /etc/hostname.
149 drobbins 1.8
150 drobbins 1.15 init.d/keymaps: Added check for valid $KEYMAP.
151 drobbins 1.8
152 drobbins 1.15 init.d/modules: Added sysklogd, metalog, syslog-ng as 'use' deps. This
153     should solve Woodchip's syslog+glue issue. We just have to change the
154     console loglevel for metalog and syslog-ng (sysklogd already updated) not to
155     output info and warnings, etc to the console, then boot will be much cleaner.
156     Also the install guide will need changing to add the loggers to 'boot' and
157     not 'default' runlevel.
158 drobbins 1.8
159 drobbins 1.15 init.d/mountall.test: Hopefully updated to the new rc-scripts style. Is
160     this really needed (I cannot see that it is used anywhere ...)?
161 drobbins 1.8
162     13 Nov 2001; Martin Schlemmer (azarah@gentoo.org): Updated
163 drobbins 1.15 init.d/runscript.sh, init.d/depscan.sh and sbin/rc with a new depend called
164     'uses'. It basically have the same usage as 'need', except that it do not
165     start services that is not in the current and 'boot' runlevels.
166 drobbins 1.8
167 drobbins 1.15 Updated init.d/netmount to use the 'uses' depend.
168 drobbins 1.8
169     11 Nov 2001; Martin Schlemmer (azarah@gentoo.org): Fixed init.d/runscript.sh
170     not to destroy the 'need' depends in /${svcdir}/need. This caused subsequent
171     starting and stopping of services not to start depends.
172    
173     7 Nov 2001; Martin Schlemmer (azarah@gentoo.org): Fixed a problem in sbin/rc
174     where the ${svcdir}/softscripts directory got destroyed before stopping
175     running services scheduled to be stopped. This with the fact that $SOFTLEVEL
176     was set too early, caused the services to be stopped in the wrong order.
177    
178     30 Oct 2001; Martin Schlemmer (azarah@gentoo.org): Modified init.d/netmount to
179     check if any network filesystems is mounted.
180    
181     29 Oct 2001; init.d/netmount: umount -art doesn't seem to work, so I added
182     some awk and grep magic to find all remote filesystems and umount them.
183    
184     29 Oct 2001; Martin Schlemmer (azarah@gentoo.org): A fix for checkroot
185     (missing "/"); it now actually checks the root filesystem. Also, a
186     localmount cleanliness fix.
187 drobbins 1.6
188     * rc-scripts 1.1.7 (18 Oct 2001)
189

194    
195     *init.d/runscript.sh; agriffis
196     Added support for rc.conf and home-grown functions

199 drobbins 1.4 Now correctly looks at /etc/modules.autoload
200    
201 drobbins 1.3 rc-scripts-1.1.6, released 15 Sep 2001
202     ======================================
203    
204     *init.d/runscript.sh, others
205     Handling of "net" dependencies resolve to all net devices in
206     /etc/runlevels/boot and /etc/runlevels/[curr-runlevel]. INTERFACES
207     variable in /etc/rc.conf has been removed.
208    
209 drobbins 1.2 *init.d/runscript.sh
210     New "zap" option for manually resetting the state of an initscript
211     to stopped.
212    
213     *init.d/{samba,sysklogd,sshd}

217     ====================================
218

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