4    
5 azarah 1.45 28 Feb 2002; Martin Schlemmer <azarah@gentoo.org>: add /etc/conf.d/local.start
6     and /etc/conf.d/local.stop for adding any misc programs to startup. This
7     should pretty much have /etc/init.d/ static, except for baselayout updates,
8     etc.
9    
10 azarah 1.43 27 Feb 2002; Martin Schlemmer <azarah@gentoo.org>: in some wierd cases,
11 azarah 1.44 a redundent /dev/.devfsd on a unmounted /dev can cause problems. Fixed
12     this in /sbin/rc.
13    
14     Added the patches from Grant Goodyear (aka g2boojum) to enable us to
15     use a ramdisk to store the contents of ${svcdir}. Updated /sbin/rc,
16     /etc/init.d/functions.sh and /etc/init.d/checkroot for this.
17 azarah 1.43
18 azarah 1.41 26 Feb 2002; Martin Schlemmer <azarah@gentoo.org>: fix my brain dead
19     update of the 25th. It really should keep "gentoo=nodevfs" in mind.
20     Also added 'get_bootparam()' to help in retrieving kernel options.
21     Updated /etc/init.d/functions.sh, /etc/init.d/checkroot and /sbin/rc
22     for this.
23    
24     Updated /etc/init.d/consolefont to work without devfs as well.
25    
26 azarah 1.42 When rebooting or shutting down, a service should not fail to stop
27     if a service it depends on, fails. Updated /etc/init.d/runscript.sh
28     for this.
29    
30 azarah 1.40 25 Feb 2002; Martin Schlemmer <azarah@gentoo.org>: added a check if
31     /dev is mounted when creating entries for /etc/mtab. This should solve a
32     invalid entry or /dev being mounted even with 'gentoo=nodevfs' option.
33     Updated /etc/init.d/checkroot for this.
34    
35 drobbins 1.39 17 Feb 2002: Daniel Robbins <drobbins@gentoo.org>: Made "xfs" the default
36     filesystem in /etc/fstab (from ReiserFS) and removed "notail" option (it's
37     just in a comment now)
38    
39     17 Feb 2002: Martin Schlemmer (azarah@gentoo.org): more fixes to 'after' and
40     'before', updated /etc/init.d/runscript.sh for this. This should fix
41     services not getting started in the correct order in a tight loop, services
42     getting stopped out of order, and some other sanity checks. Updated
43     rc-script.sh for updated help.
44    
45     15 Feb 2002: Martin Schlemmer (azarah@gentoo.org): update /etc/profile to
46     resolve bug #588. Reimplemented things a bit, and added the 'after' type.
47     'before' and 'after' will only work currently for a change of runlevel.
48     Updated /etc/init.d/depscan.sh, /etc/init.d/runscript.sh and /sbin/rc for it.
49 azarah 1.36
50 drobbins 1.39 13 Feb 2002: Martin Schlemmer (azarah@gentoo.org): add some more entries to
51     /etc/devfsd.conf to make alsa users life easier ... thanks Tod.
52    
53     12 Feb 2002: Martin Schlemmer (azarah@gentoo.org): Some more cleanups to
54     /etc/init.d/depscan.sh and /etc/init.d/runscript.sh.
55 azarah 1.36
56     Fixed some services not starting again when restarting a service.
57     Seems simple is still the best way.
58    
59     Fixed some other problems created with feature additions and cleanups.
60    
61 drobbins 1.39 11 Feb 2002: Martin Schlemmer (azarah@gentoo.org): General cleanups to
62     /etc/init.d/depscan.sh and /etc/init.d/runscript.sh.
63 azarah 1.36
64     Added 'before *' to /etc/init.d/checkroot to make sure it gets
65     started first.
66    
67     Added 'use *' to /etc/init.d/local to make sure it gets started
68     last.
69    
70     10 Feb 2002: Martin Schlemmer (azarah@gentoo.org): Fixed /sbin/rc
71     to stop a service on change of runlevel if it is in 'use' by
72     another service.
73    
74     Added the 'provide' depend type for creating virtual services.
75     Updated /etc/init.d/depscan.sh for this.
76    
77     Added the 'before' depend type. This is more for changing the
78     order services start in. Updated /etc/init.d/depscan.sh and
79     /etc/init.d/functions.sh for this.
80    
81     Updated /etc/init.d/depscan.sh to work with '*' as argument for
82     dependancy types. This can be used with 'use' and 'before' to
83     start a script last or first respectively.
84    
85     Added save_options() and get_options() to /etc/init.d/functions.sh
86     for saving misc settings between startup/shutdown. Updated
87     /etc/init.d/net.eth0 to use these and properly down virtual
88     interfaces.
89    
90     6 Feb 2002: Martin Schlemmer (azarah@gentoo.org): updated both
91     /etc/init.d/bootmisc and /etc/init.d/keymaps to be quiet on no
92     errors.
93    
94     * rc-scripts 1.2.6 (6 Feb 2002)
95    
96 azarah 1.35 2 Feb 2002: Martin Schlemmer (azarah@gentoo.org): updated /etc/net.eth0
97     to specify the gateway device via the $gateway variable (something like
98     gateway="eth0/192.168.0.1").
99    
100 azarah 1.34 2 Feb 2002: Martin Schlemmer (azarah@gentoo.org): added rc-script
101     /etc/init.d/numlock, for enabling numlock at boot.
102    
103 azarah 1.33 29 Jan 2002: Martin Schlemmer (azarah@gentoo.org): hopefully the
104     last fix to /etc/init.d/netmount to umount cleanly. This fix
105     implements a retry if not successful the first time, and will
106     kill processess using the mount. Also small type-o fix to
107     /etc/init.d/halt.sh.
108    
109 woodchip 1.32 27 Jan 2002: Donny Davies (woodchip@gentoo.org): security fix to
110     /etc/pam.d/sshd,login,chsh: added pam_shells.so to the stack.
111     Fixed /etc/passwd,group for user/group mysql.
112    
113 azarah 1.31 27 Jan 2002: Martin Schlemmer (azarah@gentoo.org): added charset
114     map file support to /etc/init.d/consolefont and the setting to
115     /etc/rc.conf.
116    
117 azarah 1.30 25 Jan 2002: Martin Schlemmer (azarah@gentoo.org): fixed dircolors
118     in skel files to support both versions of dircolors.
119    
120 azarah 1.28 23 Jan 2002: Martin Schlemmer (azarah@gentoo.org): fixed bug
121 azarah 1.31 in the restart stuff of /etc/init.d/runscript.sh that caused
122     a restart of a 'net' service not to restart services again
123     that depended on it.
124 azarah 1.28
125 azarah 1.27 * rc-scripts 1.2.5 (20 Jan 2002)
126    
127 azarah 1.26 20 Jan 2002: Martin Schlemmer (azarah@gentoo.org): updated
128     /etc/init.d/net.eth0 to 'use' pcmcia.
129    
130 azarah 1.25 8 Jan 2002: Martin Schlemmer (azarah@gentoo.org): added '--sh' to
131     the dircolors command in /etc/skel/.bash_profile to handle cases
132     where bash do not export $SHELL.
133    
134     6 Jan 2002: Martin Schlemmer (azarah@gentoo.org): updated
135     /etc/init.d/runscripts.sh, /etc/init.d/net.eth0, /etc/conf.d/net and
136     removed /etc/init.d/net.eth0-dhcp to reflect a new 'bsd-ish' config
137     scheme for the net.eth* scripts.
138    
139 woodchip 1.24 6 Jan 2002: Donny Davies (woodchip@gentoo.org): Removed email address
140     from manpages; no need for that..
141 azarah 1.25
142     5 Jan 2002: Martin Schlemmer (azarah@gentoo.org): fix type-o in
143     /etc/devfsd.conf; had 'dvd' in the cdrw stuff.
144 woodchip 1.24
145 drobbins 1.23 * rc-scripts 1.2.4 (30 Dec 2001)
146    
147     30 Dec 2001: Daniel Robbins (drobbins@gentoo.org): Changed default umask
148     back to 022 as it should be.
149    
150 azarah 1.22 30 Dec 2001; Martin Schlemmer (azarah@gentoo.org): Updated
151     /etc/init.d/checkfs to return 0 if the fs was successfully repaired.
152    
153 woodchip 1.21 29 Dec 2001; Donny Davies (woodchip@gentoo.org):
154     sort -t: -k3,3 -n /etc/passwd,group. Ahhhh :))
155    
156 azarah 1.20 28 Dec 2001; Martin Schlemmer (azarah@gentoo.org); Updated
157     /etc/init.d/depscan.sh to store info about missing dependancies of
158     type 'need' in ${svcdir}/broken. Also updated /etc/init.d/runscript.sh
159     to use this when starting a script ('need' dependancies is critical for
160     startup). Added the broken() function to /etc/init.d/runscript.sh
161     to list the missing dependancies.
162    
163     Updated /etc/init.d/runscript.sh for svc_start() to have better error
164     checking.
165    
166     Updated /etc/init.d/functions.sh with ewend(), which is the same as
167     eend(), but print a warning on error, not a error. Updated
168     /etc/init.d/checkroot and /etc/init.d/checkfs to use this function.
169    
170     27 Dec 2001; Martin Schlemmer (azarah@gentoo.org); Update /sbin/runscript.c
171     to run /etc/init.d/rc-help.sh if no arguments is passed to a rc-script.
172    
173     Added /etc/init.d/rc-help.sh, simple script that prints out help for
174     the rc-scripts.
175    
176 azarah 1.19 25 Dec 2001; Martin Schlemmer (azarah@gentoo.org); Update
177     /etc/init.d/shutdown.sh and /etc/init.d/reboot.sh not to force the
178     halt and reboot. This fixes a problem where / was not unmounted
179     properly in some cases.
180    
181     24 Dec 2001; Martin Schlemmer (azarah@gentoo.org): Move $svcdir to
182     to /etc/init.d/functions.sh, and update /etc/init.d/runscript.sh and
183     /etc/init.d/depscan.sh for this
184    
185     Modified /etc/init.d/runscript.sh to also restart the services that
186     depend on a service if that service is restarted. Enhanced the
187     restart function to be able to have custom restart() functions in
188     rc-scripts. The custom restart() have to use svc_stop() and
189     svc_start() to restart the service.
190    
191     Add a pause function to /etc/init.d/runscript.sh. It will basically
192     stop a service without stopping the services that depends on that
193     service.
194 drobbins 1.23
195     Add a pause function to /etc/init.d/runscript.sh. It will basically stop a
196     service without stopping the services that depends on that service.
197 azarah 1.19
198     * rc-scripts 1.2.3 (18 Dec 2001)
199    
200     16 Dec 2001; Martin Schlemmer (azarah@gentoo.org): Moved the stuff from
201     /sbin/init (old) to /sbin/rc (basically drop the init wrapper we used).
202    
203     Some cleanups: take out the shm resize comment;
204    
205     remove the $wrongmount;
206    
207     remove the mountshm() function and insert it directly
208     where needed;
209    
210     remove the setting of $PATH as /sbin/init already do
211     this for us.
212    
213     Added the if statement to detect if it is the first time the 'boot'
214     runlevel is executed (if [ "$RUNLEVEL" = "S" ] && [ "$argv1" = "boot" ]).
215     $RUNLEVEL is a env var set by /sbin/init.
216    
217     Also added functionality to detect if the kernel have DEVFS support
218     compiled in; seems new users thinks devfs is unstable and as they do
219     not always read the docs, it does not get compiled in ;/ Should
220     make live for us a bit easier.
221    
222     14 Dec 2001; Martin Schlemmer (azarah@gentoo.org): Fixed /sbin/rc to kill
223     a cosmetic bug in the part that stops all the unneeded services.
224    
225 woodchip 1.16 * rc-scripts 1.2.2 (8 Dec 2001)
226    
227 azarah 1.18 10 Dec 2001; Added a localhost entry in /etc/hosts.
228    
229 woodchip 1.16 8 Dec 2001; Donny Davies (woodchip@gentoo.org): Added start-stop-daemon.c
230     to rc-scripts/sbin source. Moved rc-scripts/init.d/runscript.c to
231     rc-scripts/sbin/runscript.c. Added manpage for start-stop-daemon.
232     Start-stop-daemon is moved here from sysvinit by the way. There is stuff
233     in this ChangeLog that needs to be removed! Like the changes to hosts,
234     profile. /etc/{passwd,group} have minor UID and GID type fixes for
235 woodchip 1.17 users ftp, postgres, xfs. Tweaked tarball.sh to not include CVS
236     directories.
237 woodchip 1.16
238 woodchip 1.13 29 Nov 2001; Donny Davies (woodchip@gentoo.org): Added a man directory
239     to rc-scripts. Checked in two manpages there, one for modules.autoload.5
240 woodchip 1.14 and one for update-modules.8. These were adapted from Debian. Updated
241     tarball.sh to include the new man directory. Updated baselayout to install
242     these manpages. Slightly tweak the /etc/modules.autoload comments.
243 woodchip 1.13
244 drobbins 1.15 28 Nov 2001; Martin Schlemmer (azarah@gentoo.org): Updated /sbin/init
245     to work correctly with the 'gentoo=nodevfs' option, and cleaned
246     out old code.
247    
248     Updated /etc/init.d/bootmisc with additional lock files to clean.
249    
250     27 Nov 2001; Martin Schlemmer (azarah@gentoo.org): Updated
251     /etc/init.d/depscan.sh for a virtual 'use' depend, called 'logger'
252     that can be used for services that needs to have a logger started
253     before they are started. Updated /etc/conf.d/basic with $SYSLOGGER
254     that is used to define what loggers the 'logger' depend represent.
255    
256     26 Nov 2001; Martin Schlemmer (azarah@gentoo.org): Updated
257     /etc/passwd and /etc/group with minor fixes to pass pwck and grpck.
258    
259     25 Nov 2001; Martin Schlemmer (azarah@gentoo.org): Changed umask in
260     /etc/profile for the user to 077 for security.
261    
262     Added a stop() function to /etc/init.d/clock. Also removed uneeded
263     'source /etc/rc.conf' line.
264    
265     Updated /etc/init.d/hostname to set the hostname to 'localhost' if
266     /etc/hostname is invalid.
267    
268     Updated /sbin/init to move the entries in /lib/dev-state to /dev before
269     running devfsd, as it did still not save settings properly. Also removed
270     old /dev-state/compat stuff.
271    
272 drobbins 1.12 25 Nov 2001; ncsd, the name service cache daemon script, has been removed
273     from the default "default" runlevel. It still exists in the archive so that
274 drobbins 1.15 users who want/need it can add it easily.
275 drobbins 1.12
276 drobbins 1.11 25 Nov 2001; Updated the /etc/fstab; removed usbdevfs (explicitly mounted),
277 drobbins 1.15 removed notail from the ext2 boot partition, other cleanups.
278 drobbins 1.11
279 drobbins 1.10 25 Nov 2001; Fixed init.d/clock script to work in UTC mode.
280 drobbins 1.15
281     24 Nov 2001; Martin Schlemmer (azarah@gentoo.org): Added /etc/devfsd.conf
282     and updated /sbin/init to use a new scheme for saving /dev permissions.
283     Also moved /dev-state to /lib/dev-state which is a more standard location.
284    
285     Fixed a ugly bug in /etc/init.d/depscan.sh. If a service depended on
286     itself, calling depscan.sh or changing runlevels cause a tempory effect
287     similar to a 'mini fork bomb'. Afterwards the depends was broken, and
288     changing runlevels did not want to work.
289    
290     Updated /etc/init.d/halt.sh to terminate and display message for devfsd.
291     More cosmetic than anything else, but cant hurt with the new dev-state
292     scheme.
293    
294     Updated /sbin/init to set the console log level to 1, so that bootup
295     can be much cleaner. Also updated /etc/init.d/modules not to have
296     a logger in it 'use' depends, as it should not be needed anymore.
297    
298     Updated /sbin/rc to check if devfsd is still running between runlevel
299     changes.
300    
301     Updated /etc/init.d/modules to run update-modules. We want to be sure
302     /etc/modules.conf is updated when running depmod -a.
303    
304     Change ftp's uid to 21 in /etc/passwd (was the same as bind). Also
305     added a entry for xfs (X Font Server) in /etc/passwd and /etc/group.
306    
307     Added /etc/init.d/net.ppp0, /etc/conf.d/net.ppp0 and
308     /usr/lib/ppp/chat-default as part of my new pppd scripts. Also
309     updated tarball.sh to handle ppp/chat-default.
310    
311 azarah 1.19 Added /etc/skel/.bash* to make things cleaner.
312 drobbins 1.15
313 azarah 1.19 Other minor changes.
314 drobbins 1.15
315 woodchip 1.9 17 Nov 2001; Donny Davies (woodchip@gentoo.org): Added /etc/shells file
316     to rc-scripts. Can remove it from sys-libs/shadow at the next release.
317    
318 drobbins 1.8 * rc-scripts 1.1.8 (15 Nov 2001)
319    
320     16 Nov 2001; removed bogus "mountall.test" script.
321 drobbins 1.7
322 drobbins 1.8 15 Nov 2001; Martin Schlemmer (azarah@gentoo.org): Updated
323     init.d/{runscript.sh,depscan.sh}, sbin/rc to the new dep being 'use' not
324     'uses', as it fits better with 'need' (not 'needs'). Also removed unneeded
325     for loop from init.d/depscan.sh, and other fixes. Updated names of new
326     functions in init.d/runscript.sh to better sounding ones. Updated
327     init.d/modules, init.d/netmount to use 'use'. Lots of other fixes/cleanups.
328     Removed try() out of init.d/runscript.sh (why was this here ?).
329    
330     14 Nov 2001; Martin Schlemmer (azarah@gentoo.org): init.d/bootmisc: Now
331 drobbins 1.15 cleans /tmp. Also creates /etc/resolv.conf if it doesn't exist.
332 drobbins 1.8
333 drobbins 1.15 init.d/hostname: Added check for a valid /etc/hostname.
334 drobbins 1.8
335 drobbins 1.15 init.d/keymaps: Added check for valid $KEYMAP.
336 drobbins 1.8
337 drobbins 1.15 init.d/modules: Added sysklogd, metalog, syslog-ng as 'use' deps. This
338     should solve Woodchip's syslog+glue issue. We just have to change the
339     console loglevel for metalog and syslog-ng (sysklogd already updated) not to
340     output info and warnings, etc to the console, then boot will be much cleaner.
341     Also the install guide will need changing to add the loggers to 'boot' and
342     not 'default' runlevel.
343 drobbins 1.8
344 drobbins 1.15 init.d/mountall.test: Hopefully updated to the new rc-scripts style. Is
345     this really needed (I cannot see that it is used anywhere ...)?
346 drobbins 1.8
347     13 Nov 2001; Martin Schlemmer (azarah@gentoo.org): Updated
348 drobbins 1.15 init.d/runscript.sh, init.d/depscan.sh and sbin/rc with a new depend called
349     'uses'. It basically have the same usage as 'need', except that it do not
350     start services that is not in the current and 'boot' runlevels.
351 drobbins 1.8
352 drobbins 1.15 Updated init.d/netmount to use the 'uses' depend.
353 drobbins 1.8
354     11 Nov 2001; Martin Schlemmer (azarah@gentoo.org): Fixed init.d/runscript.sh
355     not to destroy the 'need' depends in /${svcdir}/need. This caused subsequent
356     starting and stopping of services not to start depends.
357    
358     7 Nov 2001; Martin Schlemmer (azarah@gentoo.org): Fixed a problem in sbin/rc
359     where the ${svcdir}/softscripts directory got destroyed before stopping
360     running services scheduled to be stopped. This with the fact that $SOFTLEVEL
361     was set too early, caused the services to be stopped in the wrong order.
362    
363     30 Oct 2001; Martin Schlemmer (azarah@gentoo.org): Modified init.d/netmount to
364     check if any network filesystems is mounted.
365    
366     29 Oct 2001; init.d/netmount: umount -art doesn't seem to work, so I added
367     some awk and grep magic to find all remote filesystems and umount them.
368    
369     29 Oct 2001; Martin Schlemmer (azarah@gentoo.org): A fix for checkroot
370     (missing "/"); it now actually checks the root filesystem. Also, a
371     localmount cleanliness fix.
372 drobbins 1.6
