1 drobbins 1.6 # ChangeLog for Gentoo Linux System Intialization ("rc") scripts
2     # Copyright 2001 Gentoo Technologies, Inc.; Distributed under the GPL
3     # Written by Daniel Robbins (drobbins@gentoo.org)
4    
5 azarah 1.40 25 Feb 2002; Martin Schlemmer <azarah@gentoo.org>: added a check if
6     /dev is mounted when creating entries for /etc/mtab. This should solve a
7     invalid entry or /dev being mounted even with 'gentoo=nodevfs' option.
8     Updated /etc/init.d/checkroot for this.
9    
10 drobbins 1.39 17 Feb 2002: Daniel Robbins <drobbins@gentoo.org>: Made "xfs" the default
11     filesystem in /etc/fstab (from ReiserFS) and removed "notail" option (it's
12     just in a comment now)
13    
14     17 Feb 2002: Martin Schlemmer (azarah@gentoo.org): more fixes to 'after' and
15     'before', updated /etc/init.d/runscript.sh for this. This should fix
16     services not getting started in the correct order in a tight loop, services
17     getting stopped out of order, and some other sanity checks. Updated
18     rc-script.sh for updated help.
19    
20     15 Feb 2002: Martin Schlemmer (azarah@gentoo.org): update /etc/profile to
21     resolve bug #588. Reimplemented things a bit, and added the 'after' type.
22     'before' and 'after' will only work currently for a change of runlevel.
23     Updated /etc/init.d/depscan.sh, /etc/init.d/runscript.sh and /sbin/rc for it.
24 azarah 1.36
25 drobbins 1.39 13 Feb 2002: Martin Schlemmer (azarah@gentoo.org): add some more entries to
26     /etc/devfsd.conf to make alsa users life easier ... thanks Tod.
27    
28     12 Feb 2002: Martin Schlemmer (azarah@gentoo.org): Some more cleanups to
29     /etc/init.d/depscan.sh and /etc/init.d/runscript.sh.
30 azarah 1.36
31     Fixed some services not starting again when restarting a service.
32     Seems simple is still the best way.
33    
34     Fixed some other problems created with feature additions and cleanups.
35    
36 drobbins 1.39 11 Feb 2002: Martin Schlemmer (azarah@gentoo.org): General cleanups to
37     /etc/init.d/depscan.sh and /etc/init.d/runscript.sh.
38 azarah 1.36
39     Added 'before *' to /etc/init.d/checkroot to make sure it gets
40     started first.
41    
42     Added 'use *' to /etc/init.d/local to make sure it gets started
43     last.
44    
45     10 Feb 2002: Martin Schlemmer (azarah@gentoo.org): Fixed /sbin/rc
46     to stop a service on change of runlevel if it is in 'use' by
47     another service.
48    
49     Added the 'provide' depend type for creating virtual services.
50     Updated /etc/init.d/depscan.sh for this.
51    
52     Added the 'before' depend type. This is more for changing the
53     order services start in. Updated /etc/init.d/depscan.sh and
54     /etc/init.d/functions.sh for this.
55    
56     Updated /etc/init.d/depscan.sh to work with '*' as argument for
57     dependancy types. This can be used with 'use' and 'before' to
58     start a script last or first respectively.
59    
60     Added save_options() and get_options() to /etc/init.d/functions.sh
61     for saving misc settings between startup/shutdown. Updated
62     /etc/init.d/net.eth0 to use these and properly down virtual
63     interfaces.
64    
65     6 Feb 2002: Martin Schlemmer (azarah@gentoo.org): updated both
66     /etc/init.d/bootmisc and /etc/init.d/keymaps to be quiet on no
67     errors.
68    
69     * rc-scripts 1.2.6 (6 Feb 2002)
70    
71 azarah 1.35 2 Feb 2002: Martin Schlemmer (azarah@gentoo.org): updated /etc/net.eth0
72     to specify the gateway device via the $gateway variable (something like
73     gateway="eth0/192.168.0.1").
74    
75 azarah 1.34 2 Feb 2002: Martin Schlemmer (azarah@gentoo.org): added rc-script
76     /etc/init.d/numlock, for enabling numlock at boot.
77    
78 azarah 1.33 29 Jan 2002: Martin Schlemmer (azarah@gentoo.org): hopefully the
79     last fix to /etc/init.d/netmount to umount cleanly. This fix
80     implements a retry if not successful the first time, and will
81     kill processess using the mount. Also small type-o fix to
82     /etc/init.d/halt.sh.
83    
84 woodchip 1.32 27 Jan 2002: Donny Davies (woodchip@gentoo.org): security fix to
85     /etc/pam.d/sshd,login,chsh: added pam_shells.so to the stack.
86     Fixed /etc/passwd,group for user/group mysql.
87    
88 azarah 1.31 27 Jan 2002: Martin Schlemmer (azarah@gentoo.org): added charset
89     map file support to /etc/init.d/consolefont and the setting to
90     /etc/rc.conf.
91    
92 azarah 1.30 25 Jan 2002: Martin Schlemmer (azarah@gentoo.org): fixed dircolors
93     in skel files to support both versions of dircolors.
94    
95 azarah 1.28 23 Jan 2002: Martin Schlemmer (azarah@gentoo.org): fixed bug
96 azarah 1.31 in the restart stuff of /etc/init.d/runscript.sh that caused
97     a restart of a 'net' service not to restart services again
98     that depended on it.
99 azarah 1.28
100 azarah 1.27 * rc-scripts 1.2.5 (20 Jan 2002)
101    
102 azarah 1.26 20 Jan 2002: Martin Schlemmer (azarah@gentoo.org): updated
103     /etc/init.d/net.eth0 to 'use' pcmcia.
104    
105 azarah 1.25 8 Jan 2002: Martin Schlemmer (azarah@gentoo.org): added '--sh' to
106     the dircolors command in /etc/skel/.bash_profile to handle cases
107     where bash do not export $SHELL.
108    
109     6 Jan 2002: Martin Schlemmer (azarah@gentoo.org): updated
110     /etc/init.d/runscripts.sh, /etc/init.d/net.eth0, /etc/conf.d/net and
111     removed /etc/init.d/net.eth0-dhcp to reflect a new 'bsd-ish' config
112     scheme for the net.eth* scripts.
113    
114 woodchip 1.24 6 Jan 2002: Donny Davies (woodchip@gentoo.org): Removed email address
115     from manpages; no need for that..
116 azarah 1.25
117     5 Jan 2002: Martin Schlemmer (azarah@gentoo.org): fix type-o in
118     /etc/devfsd.conf; had 'dvd' in the cdrw stuff.
119 woodchip 1.24
120 drobbins 1.23 * rc-scripts 1.2.4 (30 Dec 2001)
121    
122     30 Dec 2001: Daniel Robbins (drobbins@gentoo.org): Changed default umask
123     back to 022 as it should be.
124    
125 azarah 1.22 30 Dec 2001; Martin Schlemmer (azarah@gentoo.org): Updated
126     /etc/init.d/checkfs to return 0 if the fs was successfully repaired.
127    
128 woodchip 1.21 29 Dec 2001; Donny Davies (woodchip@gentoo.org):
129     sort -t: -k3,3 -n /etc/passwd,group. Ahhhh :))
130    
131 azarah 1.20 28 Dec 2001; Martin Schlemmer (azarah@gentoo.org); Updated
132     /etc/init.d/depscan.sh to store info about missing dependancies of
133     type 'need' in ${svcdir}/broken. Also updated /etc/init.d/runscript.sh
134     to use this when starting a script ('need' dependancies is critical for
135     startup). Added the broken() function to /etc/init.d/runscript.sh
136     to list the missing dependancies.
137    
138     Updated /etc/init.d/runscript.sh for svc_start() to have better error
139     checking.
140    
141     Updated /etc/init.d/functions.sh with ewend(), which is the same as
142     eend(), but print a warning on error, not a error. Updated
143     /etc/init.d/checkroot and /etc/init.d/checkfs to use this function.
144    
145     27 Dec 2001; Martin Schlemmer (azarah@gentoo.org); Update /sbin/runscript.c
146     to run /etc/init.d/rc-help.sh if no arguments is passed to a rc-script.
147    
148     Added /etc/init.d/rc-help.sh, simple script that prints out help for
149     the rc-scripts.
150    
151 azarah 1.19 25 Dec 2001; Martin Schlemmer (azarah@gentoo.org); Update
152     /etc/init.d/shutdown.sh and /etc/init.d/reboot.sh not to force the
153     halt and reboot. This fixes a problem where / was not unmounted
154     properly in some cases.
155    
156     24 Dec 2001; Martin Schlemmer (azarah@gentoo.org): Move $svcdir to
157     to /etc/init.d/functions.sh, and update /etc/init.d/runscript.sh and
158     /etc/init.d/depscan.sh for this
159    
160     Modified /etc/init.d/runscript.sh to also restart the services that
161     depend on a service if that service is restarted. Enhanced the
162     restart function to be able to have custom restart() functions in
163     rc-scripts. The custom restart() have to use svc_stop() and
164     svc_start() to restart the service.
165    
166     Add a pause function to /etc/init.d/runscript.sh. It will basically
167     stop a service without stopping the services that depends on that
168     service.
169 drobbins 1.23
170     Add a pause function to /etc/init.d/runscript.sh. It will basically stop a
171     service without stopping the services that depends on that service.
172 azarah 1.19
173     * rc-scripts 1.2.3 (18 Dec 2001)
174    
175     16 Dec 2001; Martin Schlemmer (azarah@gentoo.org): Moved the stuff from
176     /sbin/init (old) to /sbin/rc (basically drop the init wrapper we used).
177    
178     Some cleanups: take out the shm resize comment;
179    
180     remove the $wrongmount;
181    
182     remove the mountshm() function and insert it directly
183     where needed;
184    
185     remove the setting of $PATH as /sbin/init already do
186     this for us.
187    
188     Added the if statement to detect if it is the first time the 'boot'
189     runlevel is executed (if [ "$RUNLEVEL" = "S" ] && [ "$argv1" = "boot" ]).
190     $RUNLEVEL is a env var set by /sbin/init.
191    
192     Also added functionality to detect if the kernel have DEVFS support
193     compiled in; seems new users thinks devfs is unstable and as they do
194     not always read the docs, it does not get compiled in ;/ Should
195     make live for us a bit easier.
196    
197     14 Dec 2001; Martin Schlemmer (azarah@gentoo.org): Fixed /sbin/rc to kill
198     a cosmetic bug in the part that stops all the unneeded services.
199    
200 woodchip 1.16 * rc-scripts 1.2.2 (8 Dec 2001)
201    
202 azarah 1.18 10 Dec 2001; Added a localhost entry in /etc/hosts.
203    
204 woodchip 1.16 8 Dec 2001; Donny Davies (woodchip@gentoo.org): Added start-stop-daemon.c
205     to rc-scripts/sbin source. Moved rc-scripts/init.d/runscript.c to
206     rc-scripts/sbin/runscript.c. Added manpage for start-stop-daemon.
207     Start-stop-daemon is moved here from sysvinit by the way. There is stuff
208     in this ChangeLog that needs to be removed! Like the changes to hosts,
209     profile. /etc/{passwd,group} have minor UID and GID type fixes for
210 woodchip 1.17 users ftp, postgres, xfs. Tweaked tarball.sh to not include CVS
211     directories.
212 woodchip 1.16
213 woodchip 1.13 29 Nov 2001; Donny Davies (woodchip@gentoo.org): Added a man directory
214     to rc-scripts. Checked in two manpages there, one for modules.autoload.5
215 woodchip 1.14 and one for update-modules.8. These were adapted from Debian. Updated
216     tarball.sh to include the new man directory. Updated baselayout to install
217     these manpages. Slightly tweak the /etc/modules.autoload comments.
218 woodchip 1.13
219 drobbins 1.15 28 Nov 2001; Martin Schlemmer (azarah@gentoo.org): Updated /sbin/init
220     to work correctly with the 'gentoo=nodevfs' option, and cleaned
221     out old code.
222    
223     Updated /etc/init.d/bootmisc with additional lock files to clean.
224    
225     27 Nov 2001; Martin Schlemmer (azarah@gentoo.org): Updated
226     /etc/init.d/depscan.sh for a virtual 'use' depend, called 'logger'
227     that can be used for services that needs to have a logger started
228     before they are started. Updated /etc/conf.d/basic with $SYSLOGGER
229     that is used to define what loggers the 'logger' depend represent.
230    
231     26 Nov 2001; Martin Schlemmer (azarah@gentoo.org): Updated
232     /etc/passwd and /etc/group with minor fixes to pass pwck and grpck.
233    
234     25 Nov 2001; Martin Schlemmer (azarah@gentoo.org): Changed umask in
235     /etc/profile for the user to 077 for security.
236    
237     Added a stop() function to /etc/init.d/clock. Also removed uneeded
238     'source /etc/rc.conf' line.
239    
240     Updated /etc/init.d/hostname to set the hostname to 'localhost' if
241     /etc/hostname is invalid.
242    
243     Updated /sbin/init to move the entries in /lib/dev-state to /dev before
244     running devfsd, as it did still not save settings properly. Also removed
245     old /dev-state/compat stuff.
246    
247 drobbins 1.12 25 Nov 2001; ncsd, the name service cache daemon script, has been removed
248     from the default "default" runlevel. It still exists in the archive so that
249 drobbins 1.15 users who want/need it can add it easily.
250 drobbins 1.12
251 drobbins 1.11 25 Nov 2001; Updated the /etc/fstab; removed usbdevfs (explicitly mounted),
252 drobbins 1.15 removed notail from the ext2 boot partition, other cleanups.
253 drobbins 1.11
254 drobbins 1.10 25 Nov 2001; Fixed init.d/clock script to work in UTC mode.
255 drobbins 1.15
256     24 Nov 2001; Martin Schlemmer (azarah@gentoo.org): Added /etc/devfsd.conf
257     and updated /sbin/init to use a new scheme for saving /dev permissions.
258     Also moved /dev-state to /lib/dev-state which is a more standard location.
259    
260     Fixed a ugly bug in /etc/init.d/depscan.sh. If a service depended on
261     itself, calling depscan.sh or changing runlevels cause a tempory effect
262     similar to a 'mini fork bomb'. Afterwards the depends was broken, and
263     changing runlevels did not want to work.
264    
265     Updated /etc/init.d/halt.sh to terminate and display message for devfsd.
266     More cosmetic than anything else, but cant hurt with the new dev-state
267     scheme.
268    
269     Updated /sbin/init to set the console log level to 1, so that bootup
270     can be much cleaner. Also updated /etc/init.d/modules not to have
271     a logger in it 'use' depends, as it should not be needed anymore.
272    
273     Updated /sbin/rc to check if devfsd is still running between runlevel
274     changes.
275    
276     Updated /etc/init.d/modules to run update-modules. We want to be sure
277     /etc/modules.conf is updated when running depmod -a.
278    
279     Change ftp's uid to 21 in /etc/passwd (was the same as bind). Also
280     added a entry for xfs (X Font Server) in /etc/passwd and /etc/group.
281    
282     Added /etc/init.d/net.ppp0, /etc/conf.d/net.ppp0 and
283     /usr/lib/ppp/chat-default as part of my new pppd scripts. Also
284     updated tarball.sh to handle ppp/chat-default.
285    
286 azarah 1.19 Added /etc/skel/.bash* to make things cleaner.
287 drobbins 1.15
288 azarah 1.19 Other minor changes.
289 drobbins 1.15
290 woodchip 1.9 17 Nov 2001; Donny Davies (woodchip@gentoo.org): Added /etc/shells file
291     to rc-scripts. Can remove it from sys-libs/shadow at the next release.
292    
293 drobbins 1.8 * rc-scripts 1.1.8 (15 Nov 2001)
294    
295     16 Nov 2001; removed bogus "mountall.test" script.
296 drobbins 1.7
297 drobbins 1.8 15 Nov 2001; Martin Schlemmer (azarah@gentoo.org): Updated
298     init.d/{runscript.sh,depscan.sh}, sbin/rc to the new dep being 'use' not
299     'uses', as it fits better with 'need' (not 'needs'). Also removed unneeded
300     for loop from init.d/depscan.sh, and other fixes. Updated names of new
301     functions in init.d/runscript.sh to better sounding ones. Updated
302     init.d/modules, init.d/netmount to use 'use'. Lots of other fixes/cleanups.
303     Removed try() out of init.d/runscript.sh (why was this here ?).
304    
305     14 Nov 2001; Martin Schlemmer (azarah@gentoo.org): init.d/bootmisc: Now
306 drobbins 1.15 cleans /tmp. Also creates /etc/resolv.conf if it doesn't exist.
307 drobbins 1.8
308 drobbins 1.15 init.d/hostname: Added check for a valid /etc/hostname.
309 drobbins 1.8
310 drobbins 1.15 init.d/keymaps: Added check for valid $KEYMAP.
311 drobbins 1.8
312 drobbins 1.15 init.d/modules: Added sysklogd, metalog, syslog-ng as 'use' deps. This
313     should solve Woodchip's syslog+glue issue. We just have to change the
314     console loglevel for metalog and syslog-ng (sysklogd already updated) not to
315     output info and warnings, etc to the console, then boot will be much cleaner.
316     Also the install guide will need changing to add the loggers to 'boot' and
317     not 'default' runlevel.
318 drobbins 1.8
319 drobbins 1.15 init.d/mountall.test: Hopefully updated to the new rc-scripts style. Is
320     this really needed (I cannot see that it is used anywhere ...)?
321 drobbins 1.8
322     13 Nov 2001; Martin Schlemmer (azarah@gentoo.org): Updated
323 drobbins 1.15 init.d/runscript.sh, init.d/depscan.sh and sbin/rc with a new depend called
324     'uses'. It basically have the same usage as 'need', except that it do not
325     start services that is not in the current and 'boot' runlevels.
326 drobbins 1.8
327 drobbins 1.15 Updated init.d/netmount to use the 'uses' depend.
328 drobbins 1.8
329     11 Nov 2001; Martin Schlemmer (azarah@gentoo.org): Fixed init.d/runscript.sh
330     not to destroy the 'need' depends in /${svcdir}/need. This caused subsequent
331     starting and stopping of services not to start depends.
332    
333     7 Nov 2001; Martin Schlemmer (azarah@gentoo.org): Fixed a problem in sbin/rc
334     where the ${svcdir}/softscripts directory got destroyed before stopping
335     running services scheduled to be stopped. This with the fact that $SOFTLEVEL
336     was set too early, caused the services to be stopped in the wrong order.
337    
338     30 Oct 2001; Martin Schlemmer (azarah@gentoo.org): Modified init.d/netmount to
339     check if any network filesystems is mounted.
340    
341     29 Oct 2001; init.d/netmount: umount -art doesn't seem to work, so I added
342     some awk and grep magic to find all remote filesystems and umount them.
343    
344     29 Oct 2001; Martin Schlemmer (azarah@gentoo.org): A fix for checkroot
345     (missing "/"); it now actually checks the root filesystem. Also, a
346     localmount cleanliness fix.
347 drobbins 1.6
