5 azarah 1.43 27 Feb 2002; Martin Schlemmer <azarah@gentoo.org>: in some wierd cases,
6 azarah 1.44 a redundent /dev/.devfsd on a unmounted /dev can cause problems. Fixed
7     this in /sbin/rc.
8    
9     Added the patches from Grant Goodyear (aka g2boojum) to enable us to
10     use a ramdisk to store the contents of ${svcdir}. Updated /sbin/rc,
11     /etc/init.d/functions.sh and /etc/init.d/checkroot for this.
12 azarah 1.43
13 azarah 1.41 26 Feb 2002; Martin Schlemmer <azarah@gentoo.org>: fix my brain dead
14     update of the 25th. It really should keep "gentoo=nodevfs" in mind.
15     Also added 'get_bootparam()' to help in retrieving kernel options.
16     Updated /etc/init.d/functions.sh, /etc/init.d/checkroot and /sbin/rc
17     for this.
18    
19     Updated /etc/init.d/consolefont to work without devfs as well.
20    
21 azarah 1.42 When rebooting or shutting down, a service should not fail to stop
22     if a service it depends on, fails. Updated /etc/init.d/runscript.sh
23     for this.
24    
25 azarah 1.40 25 Feb 2002; Martin Schlemmer <azarah@gentoo.org>: added a check if
26     /dev is mounted when creating entries for /etc/mtab. This should solve a
27     invalid entry or /dev being mounted even with 'gentoo=nodevfs' option.
28     Updated /etc/init.d/checkroot for this.
29    
30 drobbins 1.39 17 Feb 2002: Daniel Robbins <drobbins@gentoo.org>: Made "xfs" the default
31     filesystem in /etc/fstab (from ReiserFS) and removed "notail" option (it's
32     just in a comment now)
33    
34     17 Feb 2002: Martin Schlemmer (azarah@gentoo.org): more fixes to 'after' and
35     'before', updated /etc/init.d/runscript.sh for this. This should fix
36     services not getting started in the correct order in a tight loop, services
37     getting stopped out of order, and some other sanity checks. Updated
38     rc-script.sh for updated help.
39    
40     15 Feb 2002: Martin Schlemmer (azarah@gentoo.org): update /etc/profile to
41     resolve bug #588. Reimplemented things a bit, and added the 'after' type.
42     'before' and 'after' will only work currently for a change of runlevel.
43     Updated /etc/init.d/depscan.sh, /etc/init.d/runscript.sh and /sbin/rc for it.
44 azarah 1.36
45 drobbins 1.39 13 Feb 2002: Martin Schlemmer (azarah@gentoo.org): add some more entries to
46     /etc/devfsd.conf to make alsa users life easier ... thanks Tod.
47    
48     12 Feb 2002: Martin Schlemmer (azarah@gentoo.org): Some more cleanups to
49     /etc/init.d/depscan.sh and /etc/init.d/runscript.sh.
50 azarah 1.36
51     Fixed some services not starting again when restarting a service.
52     Seems simple is still the best way.
53    
54     Fixed some other problems created with feature additions and cleanups.
55    
56 drobbins 1.39 11 Feb 2002: Martin Schlemmer (azarah@gentoo.org): General cleanups to
57     /etc/init.d/depscan.sh and /etc/init.d/runscript.sh.
58 azarah 1.36
59     Added 'before *' to /etc/init.d/checkroot to make sure it gets
60     started first.
61    
62     Added 'use *' to /etc/init.d/local to make sure it gets started
63     last.
64    
65     10 Feb 2002: Martin Schlemmer (azarah@gentoo.org): Fixed /sbin/rc
66     to stop a service on change of runlevel if it is in 'use' by
67     another service.
68    
69     Added the 'provide' depend type for creating virtual services.
70     Updated /etc/init.d/depscan.sh for this.
71    
72     Added the 'before' depend type. This is more for changing the
73     order services start in. Updated /etc/init.d/depscan.sh and
74     /etc/init.d/functions.sh for this.
75    
76     Updated /etc/init.d/depscan.sh to work with '*' as argument for
77     dependancy types. This can be used with 'use' and 'before' to
78     start a script last or first respectively.
79    
80     Added save_options() and get_options() to /etc/init.d/functions.sh
81     for saving misc settings between startup/shutdown. Updated
82     /etc/init.d/net.eth0 to use these and properly down virtual
83     interfaces.
84    
85     6 Feb 2002: Martin Schlemmer (azarah@gentoo.org): updated both
86     /etc/init.d/bootmisc and /etc/init.d/keymaps to be quiet on no
87     errors.
88    
89     * rc-scripts 1.2.6 (6 Feb 2002)
90    
91 azarah 1.35 2 Feb 2002: Martin Schlemmer (azarah@gentoo.org): updated /etc/net.eth0
92     to specify the gateway device via the $gateway variable (something like
93     gateway="eth0/192.168.0.1").
94    
95 azarah 1.34 2 Feb 2002: Martin Schlemmer (azarah@gentoo.org): added rc-script
96     /etc/init.d/numlock, for enabling numlock at boot.
97    
98 azarah 1.33 29 Jan 2002: Martin Schlemmer (azarah@gentoo.org): hopefully the
99     last fix to /etc/init.d/netmount to umount cleanly. This fix
100     implements a retry if not successful the first time, and will
101     kill processess using the mount. Also small type-o fix to
102     /etc/init.d/halt.sh.
103    
104 woodchip 1.32 27 Jan 2002: Donny Davies (woodchip@gentoo.org): security fix to
105     /etc/pam.d/sshd,login,chsh: added pam_shells.so to the stack.
106     Fixed /etc/passwd,group for user/group mysql.
107    
108 azarah 1.31 27 Jan 2002: Martin Schlemmer (azarah@gentoo.org): added charset
109     map file support to /etc/init.d/consolefont and the setting to
110     /etc/rc.conf.
111    
112 azarah 1.30 25 Jan 2002: Martin Schlemmer (azarah@gentoo.org): fixed dircolors
113     in skel files to support both versions of dircolors.
114    
115 azarah 1.28 23 Jan 2002: Martin Schlemmer (azarah@gentoo.org): fixed bug
116 azarah 1.31 in the restart stuff of /etc/init.d/runscript.sh that caused
117     a restart of a 'net' service not to restart services again
118     that depended on it.
119 azarah 1.28
120 azarah 1.27 * rc-scripts 1.2.5 (20 Jan 2002)
121    
122 azarah 1.26 20 Jan 2002: Martin Schlemmer (azarah@gentoo.org): updated
123     /etc/init.d/net.eth0 to 'use' pcmcia.
124    
125 azarah 1.25 8 Jan 2002: Martin Schlemmer (azarah@gentoo.org): added '--sh' to
126     the dircolors command in /etc/skel/.bash_profile to handle cases
127     where bash do not export $SHELL.
128    
129     6 Jan 2002: Martin Schlemmer (azarah@gentoo.org): updated
130     /etc/init.d/runscripts.sh, /etc/init.d/net.eth0, /etc/conf.d/net and
131     removed /etc/init.d/net.eth0-dhcp to reflect a new 'bsd-ish' config
132     scheme for the net.eth* scripts.
133    
134 woodchip 1.24 6 Jan 2002: Donny Davies (woodchip@gentoo.org): Removed email address
135     from manpages; no need for that..
136 azarah 1.25
137     5 Jan 2002: Martin Schlemmer (azarah@gentoo.org): fix type-o in
138     /etc/devfsd.conf; had 'dvd' in the cdrw stuff.
139 woodchip 1.24
140 drobbins 1.23 * rc-scripts 1.2.4 (30 Dec 2001)
141    
142     30 Dec 2001: Daniel Robbins (drobbins@gentoo.org): Changed default umask
143     back to 022 as it should be.
144    
145 azarah 1.22 30 Dec 2001; Martin Schlemmer (azarah@gentoo.org): Updated
146     /etc/init.d/checkfs to return 0 if the fs was successfully repaired.
147    
148 woodchip 1.21 29 Dec 2001; Donny Davies (woodchip@gentoo.org):
149     sort -t: -k3,3 -n /etc/passwd,group. Ahhhh :))
150    
151 azarah 1.20 28 Dec 2001; Martin Schlemmer (azarah@gentoo.org); Updated
152     /etc/init.d/depscan.sh to store info about missing dependancies of
153     type 'need' in ${svcdir}/broken. Also updated /etc/init.d/runscript.sh
154     to use this when starting a script ('need' dependancies is critical for
155     startup). Added the broken() function to /etc/init.d/runscript.sh
156     to list the missing dependancies.
157    
158     Updated /etc/init.d/runscript.sh for svc_start() to have better error
159     checking.
160    
161     Updated /etc/init.d/functions.sh with ewend(), which is the same as
162     eend(), but print a warning on error, not a error. Updated
163     /etc/init.d/checkroot and /etc/init.d/checkfs to use this function.
164    
165     27 Dec 2001; Martin Schlemmer (azarah@gentoo.org); Update /sbin/runscript.c
166     to run /etc/init.d/rc-help.sh if no arguments is passed to a rc-script.
167    
168     Added /etc/init.d/rc-help.sh, simple script that prints out help for
169     the rc-scripts.
170    
171 azarah 1.19 25 Dec 2001; Martin Schlemmer (azarah@gentoo.org); Update
172     /etc/init.d/shutdown.sh and /etc/init.d/reboot.sh not to force the
173     halt and reboot. This fixes a problem where / was not unmounted
174     properly in some cases.
175    
176     24 Dec 2001; Martin Schlemmer (azarah@gentoo.org): Move $svcdir to
177     to /etc/init.d/functions.sh, and update /etc/init.d/runscript.sh and
178     /etc/init.d/depscan.sh for this
179    
180     Modified /etc/init.d/runscript.sh to also restart the services that
181     depend on a service if that service is restarted. Enhanced the
182     restart function to be able to have custom restart() functions in
183     rc-scripts. The custom restart() have to use svc_stop() and
184     svc_start() to restart the service.
185    
186     Add a pause function to /etc/init.d/runscript.sh. It will basically
187     stop a service without stopping the services that depends on that
188     service.
189 drobbins 1.23
190     Add a pause function to /etc/init.d/runscript.sh. It will basically stop a
191     service without stopping the services that depends on that service.
192 azarah 1.19
193     * rc-scripts 1.2.3 (18 Dec 2001)
194    
195     16 Dec 2001; Martin Schlemmer (azarah@gentoo.org): Moved the stuff from
196     /sbin/init (old) to /sbin/rc (basically drop the init wrapper we used).
197    
198     Some cleanups: take out the shm resize comment;
199    
200     remove the $wrongmount;
201    
202     remove the mountshm() function and insert it directly
203     where needed;
204    
205     remove the setting of $PATH as /sbin/init already do
206     this for us.
207    
208     Added the if statement to detect if it is the first time the 'boot'
209     runlevel is executed (if [ "$RUNLEVEL" = "S" ] && [ "$argv1" = "boot" ]).
210     $RUNLEVEL is a env var set by /sbin/init.
211    
212     Also added functionality to detect if the kernel have DEVFS support
213     compiled in; seems new users thinks devfs is unstable and as they do
214     not always read the docs, it does not get compiled in ;/ Should
215     make live for us a bit easier.
216    
217     14 Dec 2001; Martin Schlemmer (azarah@gentoo.org): Fixed /sbin/rc to kill
218     a cosmetic bug in the part that stops all the unneeded services.
219    
220 woodchip 1.16 * rc-scripts 1.2.2 (8 Dec 2001)
221    
222 azarah 1.18 10 Dec 2001; Added a localhost entry in /etc/hosts.
223    
224 woodchip 1.16 8 Dec 2001; Donny Davies (woodchip@gentoo.org): Added start-stop-daemon.c
225     to rc-scripts/sbin source. Moved rc-scripts/init.d/runscript.c to
226     rc-scripts/sbin/runscript.c. Added manpage for start-stop-daemon.
227     Start-stop-daemon is moved here from sysvinit by the way. There is stuff
228     in this ChangeLog that needs to be removed! Like the changes to hosts,
229     profile. /etc/{passwd,group} have minor UID and GID type fixes for
230 woodchip 1.17 users ftp, postgres, xfs. Tweaked tarball.sh to not include CVS
231     directories.
232 woodchip 1.16
233 woodchip 1.13 29 Nov 2001; Donny Davies (woodchip@gentoo.org): Added a man directory
234     to rc-scripts. Checked in two manpages there, one for modules.autoload.5
235 woodchip 1.14 and one for update-modules.8. These were adapted from Debian. Updated
236     tarball.sh to include the new man directory. Updated baselayout to install
237     these manpages. Slightly tweak the /etc/modules.autoload comments.
238 woodchip 1.13
239 drobbins 1.15 28 Nov 2001; Martin Schlemmer (azarah@gentoo.org): Updated /sbin/init
240     to work correctly with the 'gentoo=nodevfs' option, and cleaned
241     out old code.
242    
243     Updated /etc/init.d/bootmisc with additional lock files to clean.
244    
245     27 Nov 2001; Martin Schlemmer (azarah@gentoo.org): Updated
246     /etc/init.d/depscan.sh for a virtual 'use' depend, called 'logger'
247     that can be used for services that needs to have a logger started
248     before they are started. Updated /etc/conf.d/basic with $SYSLOGGER
249     that is used to define what loggers the 'logger' depend represent.
250    
251     26 Nov 2001; Martin Schlemmer (azarah@gentoo.org): Updated
252     /etc/passwd and /etc/group with minor fixes to pass pwck and grpck.
253    
254     25 Nov 2001; Martin Schlemmer (azarah@gentoo.org): Changed umask in
255     /etc/profile for the user to 077 for security.
256    
257     Added a stop() function to /etc/init.d/clock. Also removed uneeded
258     'source /etc/rc.conf' line.
259    
260     Updated /etc/init.d/hostname to set the hostname to 'localhost' if
261     /etc/hostname is invalid.
262    
263     Updated /sbin/init to move the entries in /lib/dev-state to /dev before
264     running devfsd, as it did still not save settings properly. Also removed
265     old /dev-state/compat stuff.
266    
267 drobbins 1.12 25 Nov 2001; ncsd, the name service cache daemon script, has been removed
268     from the default "default" runlevel. It still exists in the archive so that
269 drobbins 1.15 users who want/need it can add it easily.
270 drobbins 1.12
271 drobbins 1.11 25 Nov 2001; Updated the /etc/fstab; removed usbdevfs (explicitly mounted),
272 drobbins 1.15 removed notail from the ext2 boot partition, other cleanups.
273 drobbins 1.11
274 drobbins 1.10 25 Nov 2001; Fixed init.d/clock script to work in UTC mode.
275 drobbins 1.15
276     24 Nov 2001; Martin Schlemmer (azarah@gentoo.org): Added /etc/devfsd.conf
277     and updated /sbin/init to use a new scheme for saving /dev permissions.
278     Also moved /dev-state to /lib/dev-state which is a more standard location.
279    
280     Fixed a ugly bug in /etc/init.d/depscan.sh. If a service depended on
281     itself, calling depscan.sh or changing runlevels cause a tempory effect
282     similar to a 'mini fork bomb'. Afterwards the depends was broken, and
283     changing runlevels did not want to work.
284    
285     Updated /etc/init.d/halt.sh to terminate and display message for devfsd.
286     More cosmetic than anything else, but cant hurt with the new dev-state
287     scheme.
288    
289     Updated /sbin/init to set the console log level to 1, so that bootup
290     can be much cleaner. Also updated /etc/init.d/modules not to have
291     a logger in it 'use' depends, as it should not be needed anymore.
292    
293     Updated /sbin/rc to check if devfsd is still running between runlevel
294     changes.
295    
296     Updated /etc/init.d/modules to run update-modules. We want to be sure
297     /etc/modules.conf is updated when running depmod -a.
298    
299     Change ftp's uid to 21 in /etc/passwd (was the same as bind). Also
300     added a entry for xfs (X Font Server) in /etc/passwd and /etc/group.
301    
302     Added /etc/init.d/net.ppp0, /etc/conf.d/net.ppp0 and
303     /usr/lib/ppp/chat-default as part of my new pppd scripts. Also
304     updated tarball.sh to handle ppp/chat-default.
305    
306 azarah 1.19 Added /etc/skel/.bash* to make things cleaner.
307 drobbins 1.15
308 azarah 1.19 Other minor changes.
309 drobbins 1.15
310 woodchip 1.9 17 Nov 2001; Donny Davies (woodchip@gentoo.org): Added /etc/shells file
311     to rc-scripts. Can remove it from sys-libs/shadow at the next release.
312    
313 drobbins 1.8 * rc-scripts 1.1.8 (15 Nov 2001)
314    
315     16 Nov 2001; removed bogus "mountall.test" script.
316 drobbins 1.7
317 drobbins 1.8 15 Nov 2001; Martin Schlemmer (azarah@gentoo.org): Updated
318     init.d/{runscript.sh,depscan.sh}, sbin/rc to the new dep being 'use' not
319     'uses', as it fits better with 'need' (not 'needs'). Also removed unneeded
320     for loop from init.d/depscan.sh, and other fixes. Updated names of new
321     functions in init.d/runscript.sh to better sounding ones. Updated
322     init.d/modules, init.d/netmount to use 'use'. Lots of other fixes/cleanups.
323     Removed try() out of init.d/runscript.sh (why was this here ?).
324    
325     14 Nov 2001; Martin Schlemmer (azarah@gentoo.org): init.d/bootmisc: Now
326 drobbins 1.15 cleans /tmp. Also creates /etc/resolv.conf if it doesn't exist.
327 drobbins 1.8
328 drobbins 1.15 init.d/hostname: Added check for a valid /etc/hostname.
329 drobbins 1.8
330 drobbins 1.15 init.d/keymaps: Added check for valid $KEYMAP.
331 drobbins 1.8
332 drobbins 1.15 init.d/modules: Added sysklogd, metalog, syslog-ng as 'use' deps. This
333     should solve Woodchip's syslog+glue issue. We just have to change the
334     console loglevel for metalog and syslog-ng (sysklogd already updated) not to
335     output info and warnings, etc to the console, then boot will be much cleaner.
336     Also the install guide will need changing to add the loggers to 'boot' and
337     not 'default' runlevel.
338 drobbins 1.8
339 drobbins 1.15 init.d/mountall.test: Hopefully updated to the new rc-scripts style. Is
340     this really needed (I cannot see that it is used anywhere ...)?
341 drobbins 1.8
342     13 Nov 2001; Martin Schlemmer (azarah@gentoo.org): Updated
343 drobbins 1.15 init.d/runscript.sh, init.d/depscan.sh and sbin/rc with a new depend called
344     'uses'. It basically have the same usage as 'need', except that it do not
345     start services that is not in the current and 'boot' runlevels.
346 drobbins 1.8
347 drobbins 1.15 Updated init.d/netmount to use the 'uses' depend.
348 drobbins 1.8
349     11 Nov 2001; Martin Schlemmer (azarah@gentoo.org): Fixed init.d/runscript.sh
350     not to destroy the 'need' depends in /${svcdir}/need. This caused subsequent
351     starting and stopping of services not to start depends.
352    
353     7 Nov 2001; Martin Schlemmer (azarah@gentoo.org): Fixed a problem in sbin/rc
354     where the ${svcdir}/softscripts directory got destroyed before stopping
355     running services scheduled to be stopped. This with the fact that $SOFTLEVEL
356     was set too early, caused the services to be stopped in the wrong order.
357    
358     30 Oct 2001; Martin Schlemmer (azarah@gentoo.org): Modified init.d/netmount to
359     check if any network filesystems is mounted.
360    
361     29 Oct 2001; init.d/netmount: umount -art doesn't seem to work, so I added
362     some awk and grep magic to find all remote filesystems and umount them.
363    
364     29 Oct 2001; Martin Schlemmer (azarah@gentoo.org): A fix for checkroot
365     (missing "/"); it now actually checks the root filesystem. Also, a
366     localmount cleanliness fix.
367 drobbins 1.6
368     * rc-scripts 1.1.7 (18 Oct 2001)
369    
370     [old changelog format follows]
371 drobbins 1.5
372     *lots of scripts; woodchip
373     removed old rc5 scripts from cvs
374    
375     *init.d/runscript.sh; agriffis
