5 woodchip 1.21 29 Dec 2001; Donny Davies (woodchip@gentoo.org):
6     sort -t: -k3,3 -n /etc/passwd,group. Ahhhh :))
7    
8 azarah 1.20 28 Dec 2001; Martin Schlemmer (azarah@gentoo.org); Updated
9     /etc/init.d/depscan.sh to store info about missing dependancies of
10     type 'need' in ${svcdir}/broken. Also updated /etc/init.d/runscript.sh
11     to use this when starting a script ('need' dependancies is critical for
12     startup). Added the broken() function to /etc/init.d/runscript.sh
13     to list the missing dependancies.
14    
15     Updated /etc/init.d/runscript.sh for svc_start() to have better error
16     checking.
17    
18     Updated /etc/init.d/functions.sh with ewend(), which is the same as
19     eend(), but print a warning on error, not a error. Updated
20     /etc/init.d/checkroot and /etc/init.d/checkfs to use this function.
21    
22     27 Dec 2001; Martin Schlemmer (azarah@gentoo.org); Update /sbin/runscript.c
23     to run /etc/init.d/rc-help.sh if no arguments is passed to a rc-script.
24    
25     Added /etc/init.d/rc-help.sh, simple script that prints out help for
26     the rc-scripts.
27    
28 azarah 1.19 25 Dec 2001; Martin Schlemmer (azarah@gentoo.org); Update
29     /etc/init.d/shutdown.sh and /etc/init.d/reboot.sh not to force the
30     halt and reboot. This fixes a problem where / was not unmounted
31     properly in some cases.
32    
33     24 Dec 2001; Martin Schlemmer (azarah@gentoo.org): Move $svcdir to
34     to /etc/init.d/functions.sh, and update /etc/init.d/runscript.sh and
35     /etc/init.d/depscan.sh for this
36    
37     Modified /etc/init.d/runscript.sh to also restart the services that
38     depend on a service if that service is restarted. Enhanced the
39     restart function to be able to have custom restart() functions in
40     rc-scripts. The custom restart() have to use svc_stop() and
41     svc_start() to restart the service.
42    
43     Add a pause function to /etc/init.d/runscript.sh. It will basically
44     stop a service without stopping the services that depends on that
45     service.
46    
47     * rc-scripts 1.2.3 (18 Dec 2001)
48    
49     16 Dec 2001; Martin Schlemmer (azarah@gentoo.org): Moved the stuff from
50     /sbin/init (old) to /sbin/rc (basically drop the init wrapper we used).
51    
52     Some cleanups: take out the shm resize comment;
53    
54     remove the $wrongmount;
55    
56     remove the mountshm() function and insert it directly
57     where needed;
58    
59     remove the setting of $PATH as /sbin/init already do
60     this for us.
61    
62     Added the if statement to detect if it is the first time the 'boot'
63     runlevel is executed (if [ "$RUNLEVEL" = "S" ] && [ "$argv1" = "boot" ]).
64     $RUNLEVEL is a env var set by /sbin/init.
65    
66     Also added functionality to detect if the kernel have DEVFS support
67     compiled in; seems new users thinks devfs is unstable and as they do
68     not always read the docs, it does not get compiled in ;/ Should
69     make live for us a bit easier.
70    
71     14 Dec 2001; Martin Schlemmer (azarah@gentoo.org): Fixed /sbin/rc to kill
72     a cosmetic bug in the part that stops all the unneeded services.
73    
74 woodchip 1.16 * rc-scripts 1.2.2 (8 Dec 2001)
75    
76 azarah 1.18 10 Dec 2001; Added a localhost entry in /etc/hosts.
77    
78 woodchip 1.16 8 Dec 2001; Donny Davies (woodchip@gentoo.org): Added start-stop-daemon.c
79     to rc-scripts/sbin source. Moved rc-scripts/init.d/runscript.c to
80     rc-scripts/sbin/runscript.c. Added manpage for start-stop-daemon.
81     Start-stop-daemon is moved here from sysvinit by the way. There is stuff
82     in this ChangeLog that needs to be removed! Like the changes to hosts,
83     profile. /etc/{passwd,group} have minor UID and GID type fixes for
84 woodchip 1.17 users ftp, postgres, xfs. Tweaked tarball.sh to not include CVS
85     directories.
86 woodchip 1.16
87 woodchip 1.13 29 Nov 2001; Donny Davies (woodchip@gentoo.org): Added a man directory
88     to rc-scripts. Checked in two manpages there, one for modules.autoload.5
89 woodchip 1.14 and one for update-modules.8. These were adapted from Debian. Updated
90     tarball.sh to include the new man directory. Updated baselayout to install
91     these manpages. Slightly tweak the /etc/modules.autoload comments.
92 woodchip 1.13
93 drobbins 1.15 28 Nov 2001; Martin Schlemmer (azarah@gentoo.org): Updated /sbin/init
94     to work correctly with the 'gentoo=nodevfs' option, and cleaned
95     out old code.
96    
97     Updated /etc/init.d/bootmisc with additional lock files to clean.
98    
99     27 Nov 2001; Martin Schlemmer (azarah@gentoo.org): Updated
100     /etc/init.d/depscan.sh for a virtual 'use' depend, called 'logger'
101     that can be used for services that needs to have a logger started
102     before they are started. Updated /etc/conf.d/basic with $SYSLOGGER
103     that is used to define what loggers the 'logger' depend represent.
104    
105     26 Nov 2001; Martin Schlemmer (azarah@gentoo.org): Updated
106     /etc/passwd and /etc/group with minor fixes to pass pwck and grpck.
107    
108     25 Nov 2001; Martin Schlemmer (azarah@gentoo.org): Changed umask in
109     /etc/profile for the user to 077 for security.
110    
111     Added a stop() function to /etc/init.d/clock. Also removed uneeded
112     'source /etc/rc.conf' line.
113    
114     Updated /etc/init.d/hostname to set the hostname to 'localhost' if
115     /etc/hostname is invalid.
116    
117     Updated /sbin/init to move the entries in /lib/dev-state to /dev before
118     running devfsd, as it did still not save settings properly. Also removed
119     old /dev-state/compat stuff.
120    
121 drobbins 1.12 25 Nov 2001; ncsd, the name service cache daemon script, has been removed
122     from the default "default" runlevel. It still exists in the archive so that
123 drobbins 1.15 users who want/need it can add it easily.
124 drobbins 1.12
125 drobbins 1.11 25 Nov 2001; Updated the /etc/fstab; removed usbdevfs (explicitly mounted),
126 drobbins 1.15 removed notail from the ext2 boot partition, other cleanups.
127 drobbins 1.11
128 drobbins 1.10 25 Nov 2001; Fixed init.d/clock script to work in UTC mode.
129 drobbins 1.15
130     24 Nov 2001; Martin Schlemmer (azarah@gentoo.org): Added /etc/devfsd.conf
131     and updated /sbin/init to use a new scheme for saving /dev permissions.
132     Also moved /dev-state to /lib/dev-state which is a more standard location.
133    
134     Fixed a ugly bug in /etc/init.d/depscan.sh. If a service depended on
135     itself, calling depscan.sh or changing runlevels cause a tempory effect
136     similar to a 'mini fork bomb'. Afterwards the depends was broken, and
137     changing runlevels did not want to work.
138    
139     Updated /etc/init.d/halt.sh to terminate and display message for devfsd.
140     More cosmetic than anything else, but cant hurt with the new dev-state
141     scheme.
142    
143     Updated /sbin/init to set the console log level to 1, so that bootup
144     can be much cleaner. Also updated /etc/init.d/modules not to have
145     a logger in it 'use' depends, as it should not be needed anymore.
146    
147     Updated /sbin/rc to check if devfsd is still running between runlevel
148     changes.
149    
150     Updated /etc/init.d/modules to run update-modules. We want to be sure
151     /etc/modules.conf is updated when running depmod -a.
152    
153     Change ftp's uid to 21 in /etc/passwd (was the same as bind). Also
154     added a entry for xfs (X Font Server) in /etc/passwd and /etc/group.
155    
156     Added /etc/init.d/net.ppp0, /etc/conf.d/net.ppp0 and
157     /usr/lib/ppp/chat-default as part of my new pppd scripts. Also
158     updated tarball.sh to handle ppp/chat-default.
159    
160 azarah 1.19 Added /etc/skel/.bash* to make things cleaner.
161 drobbins 1.15
162 azarah 1.19 Other minor changes.
163 drobbins 1.15
164 woodchip 1.9 17 Nov 2001; Donny Davies (woodchip@gentoo.org): Added /etc/shells file
165     to rc-scripts. Can remove it from sys-libs/shadow at the next release.
166    
167 drobbins 1.8 * rc-scripts 1.1.8 (15 Nov 2001)
168    
169     16 Nov 2001; removed bogus "mountall.test" script.
170 drobbins 1.7
171 drobbins 1.8 15 Nov 2001; Martin Schlemmer (azarah@gentoo.org): Updated
172     init.d/{runscript.sh,depscan.sh}, sbin/rc to the new dep being 'use' not
173     'uses', as it fits better with 'need' (not 'needs'). Also removed unneeded
174     for loop from init.d/depscan.sh, and other fixes. Updated names of new
175     functions in init.d/runscript.sh to better sounding ones. Updated
176     init.d/modules, init.d/netmount to use 'use'. Lots of other fixes/cleanups.
177     Removed try() out of init.d/runscript.sh (why was this here ?).
178    
179     14 Nov 2001; Martin Schlemmer (azarah@gentoo.org): init.d/bootmisc: Now
180 drobbins 1.15 cleans /tmp. Also creates /etc/resolv.conf if it doesn't exist.
181 drobbins 1.8
182 drobbins 1.15 init.d/hostname: Added check for a valid /etc/hostname.
183 drobbins 1.8
184 drobbins 1.15 init.d/keymaps: Added check for valid $KEYMAP.
185 drobbins 1.8
186 drobbins 1.15 init.d/modules: Added sysklogd, metalog, syslog-ng as 'use' deps. This
187     should solve Woodchip's syslog+glue issue. We just have to change the
188     console loglevel for metalog and syslog-ng (sysklogd already updated) not to
189     output info and warnings, etc to the console, then boot will be much cleaner.
190     Also the install guide will need changing to add the loggers to 'boot' and
191     not 'default' runlevel.
192 drobbins 1.8
193 drobbins 1.15 init.d/mountall.test: Hopefully updated to the new rc-scripts style. Is
194     this really needed (I cannot see that it is used anywhere ...)?
195 drobbins 1.8
196     13 Nov 2001; Martin Schlemmer (azarah@gentoo.org): Updated
197 drobbins 1.15 init.d/runscript.sh, init.d/depscan.sh and sbin/rc with a new depend called
198     'uses'. It basically have the same usage as 'need', except that it do not
199     start services that is not in the current and 'boot' runlevels.
200 drobbins 1.8
201 drobbins 1.15 Updated init.d/netmount to use the 'uses' depend.
202 drobbins 1.8
203     11 Nov 2001; Martin Schlemmer (azarah@gentoo.org): Fixed init.d/runscript.sh
204     not to destroy the 'need' depends in /${svcdir}/need. This caused subsequent
205     starting and stopping of services not to start depends.
206    
207     7 Nov 2001; Martin Schlemmer (azarah@gentoo.org): Fixed a problem in sbin/rc
208     where the ${svcdir}/softscripts directory got destroyed before stopping
209     running services scheduled to be stopped. This with the fact that $SOFTLEVEL
210     was set too early, caused the services to be stopped in the wrong order.
211    
212     30 Oct 2001; Martin Schlemmer (azarah@gentoo.org): Modified init.d/netmount to
213     check if any network filesystems is mounted.
214    
215     29 Oct 2001; init.d/netmount: umount -art doesn't seem to work, so I added
216     some awk and grep magic to find all remote filesystems and umount them.
217    
218     29 Oct 2001; Martin Schlemmer (azarah@gentoo.org): A fix for checkroot
219     (missing "/"); it now actually checks the root filesystem. Also, a
220     localmount cleanliness fix.
221 drobbins 1.6

235 drobbins 1.3 rc-scripts-1.1.6, released 15 Sep 2001
236     ======================================
237    
238     *init.d/runscript.sh, others
239     Handling of "net" dependencies resolve to all net devices in

259     New and better looking informational message functions (einfo, einfon).
260     Brand new message functions (ewarn).
261    
262     *sbin/init, init.d/checkroot
263     We're going back to a /proc/mounts-based mtab symlink because it's
264     just plain better. Appropriate changes made.
