5 azarah 1.47 3 March 2002; Martin Schlemmer <azarah@gentoo.org>: fixed the problem
6     of rc-scripts trying to start/stop a service multiple times if it
7     fails to do so. Updated /etc/init.d/runscript.sh and /sbin/rc for
8     this.
9    
10     Fixing some variable declarations in /etc/init.d/runscript.sh caused
11     /etc/init.d/net.lo to fail on stop ($IFACE was set invalid). Fixed
12     this.
13    
14     Added caching of the "depend() { need foo; } " lines, and updated
15     /etc/init.d/depscan.sh to touch the actual files less. This should
16     speedup dependancy caching a lot, especially on slow machines.
17    
18     1 March 2002; Martin Schlemmer <azarah@gentoo.org>: added a wrapper for
19 azarah 1.46 sourcing the rc-scripts to eliminate syntax errors. Thanks to
20     Karl Trygve Kalleberg (aka karltk) for the idea. Updated
21     /etc/init.d/depscan.sh, /etc/init.d/functions.sh and
22     /etc/init.d/runscript.sh for this (added wrap_rcscript() function).
23    
24     Removed stopping of dependant services that have current service as
25     a 'use'dependancy ... should be less confusing now.
26     Updated /etc/init.d/runscript.sh for this.
27    
28 azarah 1.45 28 Feb 2002; Martin Schlemmer <azarah@gentoo.org>: add /etc/conf.d/local.start
29     and /etc/conf.d/local.stop for adding any misc programs to startup. This
30     should pretty much have /etc/init.d/ static, except for baselayout updates,
31     etc.
32    
33 azarah 1.43 27 Feb 2002; Martin Schlemmer <azarah@gentoo.org>: in some wierd cases,
34 azarah 1.44 a redundent /dev/.devfsd on a unmounted /dev can cause problems. Fixed
35     this in /sbin/rc.
36    
37     Added the patches from Grant Goodyear (aka g2boojum) to enable us to
38     use a ramdisk to store the contents of ${svcdir}. Updated /sbin/rc,
39     /etc/init.d/functions.sh and /etc/init.d/checkroot for this.
40 azarah 1.43
41 azarah 1.41 26 Feb 2002; Martin Schlemmer <azarah@gentoo.org>: fix my brain dead
42     update of the 25th. It really should keep "gentoo=nodevfs" in mind.
43     Also added 'get_bootparam()' to help in retrieving kernel options.
44     Updated /etc/init.d/functions.sh, /etc/init.d/checkroot and /sbin/rc
45     for this.
46    
47     Updated /etc/init.d/consolefont to work without devfs as well.
48    
49 azarah 1.42 When rebooting or shutting down, a service should not fail to stop
50     if a service it depends on, fails. Updated /etc/init.d/runscript.sh
51     for this.
52    
53 azarah 1.40 25 Feb 2002; Martin Schlemmer <azarah@gentoo.org>: added a check if
54     /dev is mounted when creating entries for /etc/mtab. This should solve a
55     invalid entry or /dev being mounted even with 'gentoo=nodevfs' option.
56     Updated /etc/init.d/checkroot for this.
57    
58 drobbins 1.39 17 Feb 2002: Daniel Robbins <drobbins@gentoo.org>: Made "xfs" the default
59     filesystem in /etc/fstab (from ReiserFS) and removed "notail" option (it's
60     just in a comment now)
61    
62     17 Feb 2002: Martin Schlemmer (azarah@gentoo.org): more fixes to 'after' and
63     'before', updated /etc/init.d/runscript.sh for this. This should fix
64     services not getting started in the correct order in a tight loop, services
65     getting stopped out of order, and some other sanity checks. Updated
66     rc-script.sh for updated help.
67    
68     15 Feb 2002: Martin Schlemmer (azarah@gentoo.org): update /etc/profile to
69     resolve bug #588. Reimplemented things a bit, and added the 'after' type.
70     'before' and 'after' will only work currently for a change of runlevel.
71     Updated /etc/init.d/depscan.sh, /etc/init.d/runscript.sh and /sbin/rc for it.
72 azarah 1.36
73 drobbins 1.39 13 Feb 2002: Martin Schlemmer (azarah@gentoo.org): add some more entries to
74     /etc/devfsd.conf to make alsa users life easier ... thanks Tod.
75    
76     12 Feb 2002: Martin Schlemmer (azarah@gentoo.org): Some more cleanups to
77     /etc/init.d/depscan.sh and /etc/init.d/runscript.sh.
78 azarah 1.36
79     Fixed some services not starting again when restarting a service.
80     Seems simple is still the best way.
81    
82     Fixed some other problems created with feature additions and cleanups.
83    
84 drobbins 1.39 11 Feb 2002: Martin Schlemmer (azarah@gentoo.org): General cleanups to
85     /etc/init.d/depscan.sh and /etc/init.d/runscript.sh.
86 azarah 1.36
87     Added 'before *' to /etc/init.d/checkroot to make sure it gets
88     started first.
89    
90     Added 'use *' to /etc/init.d/local to make sure it gets started
91     last.
92    
93     10 Feb 2002: Martin Schlemmer (azarah@gentoo.org): Fixed /sbin/rc
94     to stop a service on change of runlevel if it is in 'use' by
95     another service.
96    
97     Added the 'provide' depend type for creating virtual services.
98     Updated /etc/init.d/depscan.sh for this.
99    
100     Added the 'before' depend type. This is more for changing the
101     order services start in. Updated /etc/init.d/depscan.sh and
102     /etc/init.d/functions.sh for this.
103    
104     Updated /etc/init.d/depscan.sh to work with '*' as argument for
105     dependancy types. This can be used with 'use' and 'before' to
106     start a script last or first respectively.
107    
108     Added save_options() and get_options() to /etc/init.d/functions.sh
109     for saving misc settings between startup/shutdown. Updated
110     /etc/init.d/net.eth0 to use these and properly down virtual
111     interfaces.
112    
113     6 Feb 2002: Martin Schlemmer (azarah@gentoo.org): updated both
114     /etc/init.d/bootmisc and /etc/init.d/keymaps to be quiet on no
115     errors.
116    
117     * rc-scripts 1.2.6 (6 Feb 2002)
118    
119 azarah 1.35 2 Feb 2002: Martin Schlemmer (azarah@gentoo.org): updated /etc/net.eth0
120     to specify the gateway device via the $gateway variable (something like
121     gateway="eth0/192.168.0.1").
122    
123 azarah 1.34 2 Feb 2002: Martin Schlemmer (azarah@gentoo.org): added rc-script
124     /etc/init.d/numlock, for enabling numlock at boot.
125    
126 azarah 1.33 29 Jan 2002: Martin Schlemmer (azarah@gentoo.org): hopefully the
127     last fix to /etc/init.d/netmount to umount cleanly. This fix
128     implements a retry if not successful the first time, and will
129     kill processess using the mount. Also small type-o fix to
130     /etc/init.d/halt.sh.
131    
132 woodchip 1.32 27 Jan 2002: Donny Davies (woodchip@gentoo.org): security fix to
133     /etc/pam.d/sshd,login,chsh: added pam_shells.so to the stack.
134     Fixed /etc/passwd,group for user/group mysql.
135    
136 azarah 1.31 27 Jan 2002: Martin Schlemmer (azarah@gentoo.org): added charset
137     map file support to /etc/init.d/consolefont and the setting to
138     /etc/rc.conf.
139    
140 azarah 1.30 25 Jan 2002: Martin Schlemmer (azarah@gentoo.org): fixed dircolors
141     in skel files to support both versions of dircolors.
142    
143 azarah 1.28 23 Jan 2002: Martin Schlemmer (azarah@gentoo.org): fixed bug
144 azarah 1.31 in the restart stuff of /etc/init.d/runscript.sh that caused
145     a restart of a 'net' service not to restart services again
146     that depended on it.
147 azarah 1.28
148 azarah 1.27 * rc-scripts 1.2.5 (20 Jan 2002)
149    
150 azarah 1.26 20 Jan 2002: Martin Schlemmer (azarah@gentoo.org): updated
151     /etc/init.d/net.eth0 to 'use' pcmcia.
152    
153 azarah 1.25 8 Jan 2002: Martin Schlemmer (azarah@gentoo.org): added '--sh' to
154     the dircolors command in /etc/skel/.bash_profile to handle cases
155     where bash do not export $SHELL.
156    
157     6 Jan 2002: Martin Schlemmer (azarah@gentoo.org): updated
158     /etc/init.d/runscripts.sh, /etc/init.d/net.eth0, /etc/conf.d/net and
159     removed /etc/init.d/net.eth0-dhcp to reflect a new 'bsd-ish' config
160     scheme for the net.eth* scripts.
161    
162 woodchip 1.24 6 Jan 2002: Donny Davies (woodchip@gentoo.org): Removed email address
163     from manpages; no need for that..
164 azarah 1.25
165     5 Jan 2002: Martin Schlemmer (azarah@gentoo.org): fix type-o in
166     /etc/devfsd.conf; had 'dvd' in the cdrw stuff.
167 woodchip 1.24
168 drobbins 1.23 * rc-scripts 1.2.4 (30 Dec 2001)
169    
170     30 Dec 2001: Daniel Robbins (drobbins@gentoo.org): Changed default umask
171     back to 022 as it should be.
172    
173 azarah 1.22 30 Dec 2001; Martin Schlemmer (azarah@gentoo.org): Updated
174     /etc/init.d/checkfs to return 0 if the fs was successfully repaired.
175    
176 woodchip 1.21 29 Dec 2001; Donny Davies (woodchip@gentoo.org):
177     sort -t: -k3,3 -n /etc/passwd,group. Ahhhh :))
178    
179 azarah 1.20 28 Dec 2001; Martin Schlemmer (azarah@gentoo.org); Updated
180     /etc/init.d/depscan.sh to store info about missing dependancies of
181     type 'need' in ${svcdir}/broken. Also updated /etc/init.d/runscript.sh
182     to use this when starting a script ('need' dependancies is critical for
183     startup). Added the broken() function to /etc/init.d/runscript.sh
184     to list the missing dependancies.
185    
186     Updated /etc/init.d/runscript.sh for svc_start() to have better error
187     checking.
188    
189     Updated /etc/init.d/functions.sh with ewend(), which is the same as
190     eend(), but print a warning on error, not a error. Updated
191     /etc/init.d/checkroot and /etc/init.d/checkfs to use this function.
192    
193     27 Dec 2001; Martin Schlemmer (azarah@gentoo.org); Update /sbin/runscript.c
194     to run /etc/init.d/rc-help.sh if no arguments is passed to a rc-script.
195    
196     Added /etc/init.d/rc-help.sh, simple script that prints out help for
197     the rc-scripts.
198    
199 azarah 1.19 25 Dec 2001; Martin Schlemmer (azarah@gentoo.org); Update
200     /etc/init.d/shutdown.sh and /etc/init.d/reboot.sh not to force the
201     halt and reboot. This fixes a problem where / was not unmounted
202     properly in some cases.
203    
204     24 Dec 2001; Martin Schlemmer (azarah@gentoo.org): Move $svcdir to
205     to /etc/init.d/functions.sh, and update /etc/init.d/runscript.sh and
206     /etc/init.d/depscan.sh for this
207    
208     Modified /etc/init.d/runscript.sh to also restart the services that
209     depend on a service if that service is restarted. Enhanced the
210     restart function to be able to have custom restart() functions in
211     rc-scripts. The custom restart() have to use svc_stop() and
212     svc_start() to restart the service.
213    
214     Add a pause function to /etc/init.d/runscript.sh. It will basically
215     stop a service without stopping the services that depends on that
216     service.
217 drobbins 1.23
218     Add a pause function to /etc/init.d/runscript.sh. It will basically stop a
219     service without stopping the services that depends on that service.
220 azarah 1.19
221     * rc-scripts 1.2.3 (18 Dec 2001)
222    
223     16 Dec 2001; Martin Schlemmer (azarah@gentoo.org): Moved the stuff from
224     /sbin/init (old) to /sbin/rc (basically drop the init wrapper we used).
225    
226     Some cleanups: take out the shm resize comment;
227    
228     remove the $wrongmount;
229    
230     remove the mountshm() function and insert it directly
231     where needed;
232    
233     remove the setting of $PATH as /sbin/init already do
234     this for us.
235    
236     Added the if statement to detect if it is the first time the 'boot'
237     runlevel is executed (if [ "$RUNLEVEL" = "S" ] && [ "$argv1" = "boot" ]).
238     $RUNLEVEL is a env var set by /sbin/init.
239    
240     Also added functionality to detect if the kernel have DEVFS support
241     compiled in; seems new users thinks devfs is unstable and as they do
242     not always read the docs, it does not get compiled in ;/ Should
243     make live for us a bit easier.
244    
245     14 Dec 2001; Martin Schlemmer (azarah@gentoo.org): Fixed /sbin/rc to kill
246     a cosmetic bug in the part that stops all the unneeded services.
247    
248 woodchip 1.16 * rc-scripts 1.2.2 (8 Dec 2001)
249    
250 azarah 1.18 10 Dec 2001; Added a localhost entry in /etc/hosts.
251    
252 woodchip 1.16 8 Dec 2001; Donny Davies (woodchip@gentoo.org): Added start-stop-daemon.c
253     to rc-scripts/sbin source. Moved rc-scripts/init.d/runscript.c to
254     rc-scripts/sbin/runscript.c. Added manpage for start-stop-daemon.
255     Start-stop-daemon is moved here from sysvinit by the way. There is stuff
256     in this ChangeLog that needs to be removed! Like the changes to hosts,
257     profile. /etc/{passwd,group} have minor UID and GID type fixes for
258 woodchip 1.17 users ftp, postgres, xfs. Tweaked tarball.sh to not include CVS
259     directories.
260 woodchip 1.16
261 woodchip 1.13 29 Nov 2001; Donny Davies (woodchip@gentoo.org): Added a man directory
262     to rc-scripts. Checked in two manpages there, one for modules.autoload.5
263 woodchip 1.14 and one for update-modules.8. These were adapted from Debian. Updated
264     tarball.sh to include the new man directory. Updated baselayout to install
265     these manpages. Slightly tweak the /etc/modules.autoload comments.
266 woodchip 1.13
267 drobbins 1.15 28 Nov 2001; Martin Schlemmer (azarah@gentoo.org): Updated /sbin/init
268     to work correctly with the 'gentoo=nodevfs' option, and cleaned
269     out old code.
270    
271     Updated /etc/init.d/bootmisc with additional lock files to clean.
272    
273     27 Nov 2001; Martin Schlemmer (azarah@gentoo.org): Updated
274     /etc/init.d/depscan.sh for a virtual 'use' depend, called 'logger'
275     that can be used for services that needs to have a logger started
276     before they are started. Updated /etc/conf.d/basic with $SYSLOGGER
277     that is used to define what loggers the 'logger' depend represent.
278    
279     26 Nov 2001; Martin Schlemmer (azarah@gentoo.org): Updated
280     /etc/passwd and /etc/group with minor fixes to pass pwck and grpck.
281    
282     25 Nov 2001; Martin Schlemmer (azarah@gentoo.org): Changed umask in
283     /etc/profile for the user to 077 for security.
284    
285     Added a stop() function to /etc/init.d/clock. Also removed uneeded
286     'source /etc/rc.conf' line.
287    
288     Updated /etc/init.d/hostname to set the hostname to 'localhost' if
289     /etc/hostname is invalid.
290    
291     Updated /sbin/init to move the entries in /lib/dev-state to /dev before
292     running devfsd, as it did still not save settings properly. Also removed
293     old /dev-state/compat stuff.
294    
295 drobbins 1.12 25 Nov 2001; ncsd, the name service cache daemon script, has been removed
296     from the default "default" runlevel. It still exists in the archive so that
297 drobbins 1.15 users who want/need it can add it easily.
298 drobbins 1.12
299 drobbins 1.11 25 Nov 2001; Updated the /etc/fstab; removed usbdevfs (explicitly mounted),
300 drobbins 1.15 removed notail from the ext2 boot partition, other cleanups.
301 drobbins 1.11
302 drobbins 1.10 25 Nov 2001; Fixed init.d/clock script to work in UTC mode.
303 drobbins 1.15
304     24 Nov 2001; Martin Schlemmer (azarah@gentoo.org): Added /etc/devfsd.conf
305     and updated /sbin/init to use a new scheme for saving /dev permissions.
306     Also moved /dev-state to /lib/dev-state which is a more standard location.
307    
308     Fixed a ugly bug in /etc/init.d/depscan.sh. If a service depended on
309     itself, calling depscan.sh or changing runlevels cause a tempory effect
310     similar to a 'mini fork bomb'. Afterwards the depends was broken, and
311     changing runlevels did not want to work.
312    
313     Updated /etc/init.d/halt.sh to terminate and display message for devfsd.
314     More cosmetic than anything else, but cant hurt with the new dev-state
315     scheme.
316    
317     Updated /sbin/init to set the console log level to 1, so that bootup
318     can be much cleaner. Also updated /etc/init.d/modules not to have
319     a logger in it 'use' depends, as it should not be needed anymore.
320    
321     Updated /sbin/rc to check if devfsd is still running between runlevel
322     changes.
323    
324     Updated /etc/init.d/modules to run update-modules. We want to be sure
325     /etc/modules.conf is updated when running depmod -a.
326    
327     Change ftp's uid to 21 in /etc/passwd (was the same as bind). Also
328     added a entry for xfs (X Font Server) in /etc/passwd and /etc/group.
329    
330     Added /etc/init.d/net.ppp0, /etc/conf.d/net.ppp0 and
331     /usr/lib/ppp/chat-default as part of my new pppd scripts. Also
332     updated tarball.sh to handle ppp/chat-default.
333    
334 azarah 1.19 Added /etc/skel/.bash* to make things cleaner.
335 drobbins 1.15
336 azarah 1.19 Other minor changes.
337 drobbins 1.15
338 woodchip 1.9 17 Nov 2001; Donny Davies (woodchip@gentoo.org): Added /etc/shells file
339     to rc-scripts. Can remove it from sys-libs/shadow at the next release.
340    
341 drobbins 1.8 * rc-scripts 1.1.8 (15 Nov 2001)
342    
343     16 Nov 2001; removed bogus "mountall.test" script.
344 drobbins 1.7
345 drobbins 1.8 15 Nov 2001; Martin Schlemmer (azarah@gentoo.org): Updated
346     init.d/{runscript.sh,depscan.sh}, sbin/rc to the new dep being 'use' not
347     'uses', as it fits better with 'need' (not 'needs'). Also removed unneeded
348     for loop from init.d/depscan.sh, and other fixes. Updated names of new
349     functions in init.d/runscript.sh to better sounding ones. Updated
350     init.d/modules, init.d/netmount to use 'use'. Lots of other fixes/cleanups.
351     Removed try() out of init.d/runscript.sh (why was this here ?).
352    
353     14 Nov 2001; Martin Schlemmer (azarah@gentoo.org): init.d/bootmisc: Now
354 drobbins 1.15 cleans /tmp. Also creates /etc/resolv.conf if it doesn't exist.
355 drobbins 1.8
356 drobbins 1.15 init.d/hostname: Added check for a valid /etc/hostname.
357 drobbins 1.8
358 drobbins 1.15 init.d/keymaps: Added check for valid $KEYMAP.
359 drobbins 1.8
360 drobbins 1.15 init.d/modules: Added sysklogd, metalog, syslog-ng as 'use' deps. This
361     should solve Woodchip's syslog+glue issue. We just have to change the
362     console loglevel for metalog and syslog-ng (sysklogd already updated) not to
363     output info and warnings, etc to the console, then boot will be much cleaner.
364     Also the install guide will need changing to add the loggers to 'boot' and
365     not 'default' runlevel.
366 drobbins 1.8
367 drobbins 1.15 init.d/mountall.test: Hopefully updated to the new rc-scripts style. Is
368     this really needed (I cannot see that it is used anywhere ...)?
369 drobbins 1.8
370     13 Nov 2001; Martin Schlemmer (azarah@gentoo.org): Updated
371 drobbins 1.15 init.d/runscript.sh, init.d/depscan.sh and sbin/rc with a new depend called
372     'uses'. It basically have the same usage as 'need', except that it do not
373     start services that is not in the current and 'boot' runlevels.
374 drobbins 1.8
375 drobbins 1.15 Updated init.d/netmount to use the 'uses' depend.
376 drobbins 1.8
377     11 Nov 2001; Martin Schlemmer (azarah@gentoo.org): Fixed init.d/runscript.sh
378     not to destroy the 'need' depends in /${svcdir}/need. This caused subsequent
379     starting and stopping of services not to start depends.
380    
381     7 Nov 2001; Martin Schlemmer (azarah@gentoo.org): Fixed a problem in sbin/rc
382     where the ${svcdir}/softscripts directory got destroyed before stopping
383     running services scheduled to be stopped. This with the fact that $SOFTLEVEL
384     was set too early, caused the services to be stopped in the wrong order.
385    
386     30 Oct 2001; Martin Schlemmer (azarah@gentoo.org): Modified init.d/netmount to
387     check if any network filesystems is mounted.
388    
389     29 Oct 2001; init.d/netmount: umount -art doesn't seem to work, so I added
390     some awk and grep magic to find all remote filesystems and umount them.
391    
392     29 Oct 2001; Martin Schlemmer (azarah@gentoo.org): A fix for checkroot
393     (missing "/"); it now actually checks the root filesystem. Also, a
394     localmount cleanliness fix.
