1 drobbins 1.6 # ChangeLog for Gentoo Linux System Intialization ("rc") scripts

4    
5 azarah 1.49 * rc-scripts 1.2.8 (4 March 2002)
6    
7     4 March 2002; Martin Schlemmer <azarah@gentoo.org>: add /etc/init.d/xdm,
8     /etc/X11/startDM.sh and updated /etc/inittab to fix the "dead key"
9     problem we had with xdm/gdm/kdm. We should move them to the
10     xfree ebuild later on when things settles down.
11    
12     Added some sanity checks to /sbin/rc, /etc/init.d/runscripts.sh.
13    
14     Added a basic $PATH to /etc/init.d/functions.sh to fix a problem
15     where we had a invalid $PATH on boot in some cases.
16    
17 azarah 1.48 * rc-scripts 1.2.7 (3 March 2002)
18    
19 azarah 1.47 3 March 2002; Martin Schlemmer <azarah@gentoo.org>: fixed the problem
20     of rc-scripts trying to start/stop a service multiple times if it
21     fails to do so. Updated /etc/init.d/runscript.sh and /sbin/rc for
22     this.
23    
24     Fixing some variable declarations in /etc/init.d/runscript.sh caused
25     /etc/init.d/net.lo to fail on stop ($IFACE was set invalid). Fixed
26     this.
27    
28     Added caching of the "depend() { need foo; } " lines, and updated
29     /etc/init.d/depscan.sh to touch the actual files less. This should
30     speedup dependancy caching a lot, especially on slow machines.
31 azarah 1.48
32     Updated /etc/passwd to have users with no shell defined, use /bin/false
33     for security.
34    
35     Update /etc/fstab to mention /dev/shm since we dont mount it anymore.
36 azarah 1.47
37     1 March 2002; Martin Schlemmer <azarah@gentoo.org>: added a wrapper for
38 azarah 1.46 sourcing the rc-scripts to eliminate syntax errors. Thanks to
39     Karl Trygve Kalleberg (aka karltk) for the idea. Updated
40     /etc/init.d/depscan.sh, /etc/init.d/functions.sh and
41     /etc/init.d/runscript.sh for this (added wrap_rcscript() function).
42    
43     Removed stopping of dependant services that have current service as
44     a 'use'dependancy ... should be less confusing now.
45     Updated /etc/init.d/runscript.sh for this.
46    
47 azarah 1.45 28 Feb 2002; Martin Schlemmer <azarah@gentoo.org>: add /etc/conf.d/local.start
48     and /etc/conf.d/local.stop for adding any misc programs to startup. This
49     should pretty much have /etc/init.d/ static, except for baselayout updates,
50     etc.
51    
52 azarah 1.43 27 Feb 2002; Martin Schlemmer <azarah@gentoo.org>: in some wierd cases,
53 azarah 1.44 a redundent /dev/.devfsd on a unmounted /dev can cause problems. Fixed
54     this in /sbin/rc.
55    
56     Added the patches from Grant Goodyear (aka g2boojum) to enable us to
57     use a ramdisk to store the contents of ${svcdir}. Updated /sbin/rc,
58     /etc/init.d/functions.sh and /etc/init.d/checkroot for this.
59 azarah 1.43
60 azarah 1.41 26 Feb 2002; Martin Schlemmer <azarah@gentoo.org>: fix my brain dead
61     update of the 25th. It really should keep "gentoo=nodevfs" in mind.
62     Also added 'get_bootparam()' to help in retrieving kernel options.
63     Updated /etc/init.d/functions.sh, /etc/init.d/checkroot and /sbin/rc
64     for this.
65    
66     Updated /etc/init.d/consolefont to work without devfs as well.
67    
68 azarah 1.42 When rebooting or shutting down, a service should not fail to stop
69     if a service it depends on, fails. Updated /etc/init.d/runscript.sh
70     for this.
71    
72 azarah 1.40 25 Feb 2002; Martin Schlemmer <azarah@gentoo.org>: added a check if
73     /dev is mounted when creating entries for /etc/mtab. This should solve a
74     invalid entry or /dev being mounted even with 'gentoo=nodevfs' option.
75     Updated /etc/init.d/checkroot for this.
76    
77 drobbins 1.39 17 Feb 2002: Daniel Robbins <drobbins@gentoo.org>: Made "xfs" the default
78     filesystem in /etc/fstab (from ReiserFS) and removed "notail" option (it's
79     just in a comment now)
80    
81     17 Feb 2002: Martin Schlemmer (azarah@gentoo.org): more fixes to 'after' and
82     'before', updated /etc/init.d/runscript.sh for this. This should fix
83     services not getting started in the correct order in a tight loop, services
84     getting stopped out of order, and some other sanity checks. Updated
85     rc-script.sh for updated help.
86    
87     15 Feb 2002: Martin Schlemmer (azarah@gentoo.org): update /etc/profile to
88     resolve bug #588. Reimplemented things a bit, and added the 'after' type.
89     'before' and 'after' will only work currently for a change of runlevel.
90     Updated /etc/init.d/depscan.sh, /etc/init.d/runscript.sh and /sbin/rc for it.
91 azarah 1.36
92 drobbins 1.39 13 Feb 2002: Martin Schlemmer (azarah@gentoo.org): add some more entries to
93     /etc/devfsd.conf to make alsa users life easier ... thanks Tod.
94    
95     12 Feb 2002: Martin Schlemmer (azarah@gentoo.org): Some more cleanups to
96     /etc/init.d/depscan.sh and /etc/init.d/runscript.sh.
97 azarah 1.36
98     Fixed some services not starting again when restarting a service.
99     Seems simple is still the best way.
100    
101     Fixed some other problems created with feature additions and cleanups.
102    
103 drobbins 1.39 11 Feb 2002: Martin Schlemmer (azarah@gentoo.org): General cleanups to
104     /etc/init.d/depscan.sh and /etc/init.d/runscript.sh.
105 azarah 1.36
106     Added 'before *' to /etc/init.d/checkroot to make sure it gets
107     started first.
108    
109     Added 'use *' to /etc/init.d/local to make sure it gets started
110     last.
111    
112     10 Feb 2002: Martin Schlemmer (azarah@gentoo.org): Fixed /sbin/rc
113     to stop a service on change of runlevel if it is in 'use' by
114     another service.
115    
116     Added the 'provide' depend type for creating virtual services.
117     Updated /etc/init.d/depscan.sh for this.
118    
119     Added the 'before' depend type. This is more for changing the
120     order services start in. Updated /etc/init.d/depscan.sh and
121     /etc/init.d/functions.sh for this.
122    
123     Updated /etc/init.d/depscan.sh to work with '*' as argument for
124     dependancy types. This can be used with 'use' and 'before' to
125     start a script last or first respectively.
126    
127     Added save_options() and get_options() to /etc/init.d/functions.sh
128     for saving misc settings between startup/shutdown. Updated
129     /etc/init.d/net.eth0 to use these and properly down virtual
130     interfaces.
131    
132     6 Feb 2002: Martin Schlemmer (azarah@gentoo.org): updated both
133     /etc/init.d/bootmisc and /etc/init.d/keymaps to be quiet on no
134     errors.
135    
136     * rc-scripts 1.2.6 (6 Feb 2002)
137    
138 azarah 1.35 2 Feb 2002: Martin Schlemmer (azarah@gentoo.org): updated /etc/net.eth0
139     to specify the gateway device via the $gateway variable (something like
140     gateway="eth0/192.168.0.1").
141    
142 azarah 1.34 2 Feb 2002: Martin Schlemmer (azarah@gentoo.org): added rc-script
143     /etc/init.d/numlock, for enabling numlock at boot.
144    
145 azarah 1.33 29 Jan 2002: Martin Schlemmer (azarah@gentoo.org): hopefully the
146     last fix to /etc/init.d/netmount to umount cleanly. This fix
147     implements a retry if not successful the first time, and will
148     kill processess using the mount. Also small type-o fix to
149     /etc/init.d/halt.sh.
150    
151 woodchip 1.32 27 Jan 2002: Donny Davies (woodchip@gentoo.org): security fix to
152     /etc/pam.d/sshd,login,chsh: added pam_shells.so to the stack.
153     Fixed /etc/passwd,group for user/group mysql.
154    
155 azarah 1.31 27 Jan 2002: Martin Schlemmer (azarah@gentoo.org): added charset
156     map file support to /etc/init.d/consolefont and the setting to
157     /etc/rc.conf.
158    
159 azarah 1.30 25 Jan 2002: Martin Schlemmer (azarah@gentoo.org): fixed dircolors
160     in skel files to support both versions of dircolors.
161    
162 azarah 1.28 23 Jan 2002: Martin Schlemmer (azarah@gentoo.org): fixed bug
163 azarah 1.31 in the restart stuff of /etc/init.d/runscript.sh that caused
164     a restart of a 'net' service not to restart services again
165     that depended on it.
166 azarah 1.28
167 azarah 1.27 * rc-scripts 1.2.5 (20 Jan 2002)
168    
169 azarah 1.26 20 Jan 2002: Martin Schlemmer (azarah@gentoo.org): updated
170     /etc/init.d/net.eth0 to 'use' pcmcia.
171    
172 azarah 1.25 8 Jan 2002: Martin Schlemmer (azarah@gentoo.org): added '--sh' to
173     the dircolors command in /etc/skel/.bash_profile to handle cases
174     where bash do not export $SHELL.
175    
176     6 Jan 2002: Martin Schlemmer (azarah@gentoo.org): updated
177     /etc/init.d/runscripts.sh, /etc/init.d/net.eth0, /etc/conf.d/net and
178     removed /etc/init.d/net.eth0-dhcp to reflect a new 'bsd-ish' config
179     scheme for the net.eth* scripts.
180    
181 woodchip 1.24 6 Jan 2002: Donny Davies (woodchip@gentoo.org): Removed email address
182     from manpages; no need for that..
183 azarah 1.25
184     5 Jan 2002: Martin Schlemmer (azarah@gentoo.org): fix type-o in
185     /etc/devfsd.conf; had 'dvd' in the cdrw stuff.
186 woodchip 1.24
187 drobbins 1.23 * rc-scripts 1.2.4 (30 Dec 2001)
188    
189     30 Dec 2001: Daniel Robbins (drobbins@gentoo.org): Changed default umask
190     back to 022 as it should be.
191    
192 azarah 1.22 30 Dec 2001; Martin Schlemmer (azarah@gentoo.org): Updated
193     /etc/init.d/checkfs to return 0 if the fs was successfully repaired.
194    
195 woodchip 1.21 29 Dec 2001; Donny Davies (woodchip@gentoo.org):
196     sort -t: -k3,3 -n /etc/passwd,group. Ahhhh :))
197    
198 azarah 1.20 28 Dec 2001; Martin Schlemmer (azarah@gentoo.org); Updated
199     /etc/init.d/depscan.sh to store info about missing dependancies of
200     type 'need' in ${svcdir}/broken. Also updated /etc/init.d/runscript.sh
201     to use this when starting a script ('need' dependancies is critical for
202     startup). Added the broken() function to /etc/init.d/runscript.sh
203     to list the missing dependancies.
204    
205     Updated /etc/init.d/runscript.sh for svc_start() to have better error
206     checking.
207    
208     Updated /etc/init.d/functions.sh with ewend(), which is the same as
209     eend(), but print a warning on error, not a error. Updated
210     /etc/init.d/checkroot and /etc/init.d/checkfs to use this function.
211    
212     27 Dec 2001; Martin Schlemmer (azarah@gentoo.org); Update /sbin/runscript.c
213     to run /etc/init.d/rc-help.sh if no arguments is passed to a rc-script.
214    
215     Added /etc/init.d/rc-help.sh, simple script that prints out help for
216     the rc-scripts.
217    
218 azarah 1.19 25 Dec 2001; Martin Schlemmer (azarah@gentoo.org); Update
219     /etc/init.d/shutdown.sh and /etc/init.d/reboot.sh not to force the
220     halt and reboot. This fixes a problem where / was not unmounted
221     properly in some cases.
222    
223     24 Dec 2001; Martin Schlemmer (azarah@gentoo.org): Move $svcdir to
224     to /etc/init.d/functions.sh, and update /etc/init.d/runscript.sh and
225     /etc/init.d/depscan.sh for this
226    
227     Modified /etc/init.d/runscript.sh to also restart the services that
228     depend on a service if that service is restarted. Enhanced the
229     restart function to be able to have custom restart() functions in
230     rc-scripts. The custom restart() have to use svc_stop() and
231     svc_start() to restart the service.
232    
233     Add a pause function to /etc/init.d/runscript.sh. It will basically
234     stop a service without stopping the services that depends on that
235     service.
236 drobbins 1.23
237     Add a pause function to /etc/init.d/runscript.sh. It will basically stop a
238     service without stopping the services that depends on that service.
239 azarah 1.19
240     * rc-scripts 1.2.3 (18 Dec 2001)
241    
242     16 Dec 2001; Martin Schlemmer (azarah@gentoo.org): Moved the stuff from
243     /sbin/init (old) to /sbin/rc (basically drop the init wrapper we used).
244    
245     Some cleanups: take out the shm resize comment;
246    
247     remove the $wrongmount;
248    
249     remove the mountshm() function and insert it directly
250     where needed;
251    
252     remove the setting of $PATH as /sbin/init already do
253     this for us.
254    
255     Added the if statement to detect if it is the first time the 'boot'
256     runlevel is executed (if [ "$RUNLEVEL" = "S" ] && [ "$argv1" = "boot" ]).
257     $RUNLEVEL is a env var set by /sbin/init.
258    
259     Also added functionality to detect if the kernel have DEVFS support
260     compiled in; seems new users thinks devfs is unstable and as they do
261     not always read the docs, it does not get compiled in ;/ Should
262     make live for us a bit easier.
263    
264     14 Dec 2001; Martin Schlemmer (azarah@gentoo.org): Fixed /sbin/rc to kill
265     a cosmetic bug in the part that stops all the unneeded services.
266    
267 woodchip 1.16 * rc-scripts 1.2.2 (8 Dec 2001)
268    
269 azarah 1.18 10 Dec 2001; Added a localhost entry in /etc/hosts.
270    
271 woodchip 1.16 8 Dec 2001; Donny Davies (woodchip@gentoo.org): Added start-stop-daemon.c
272     to rc-scripts/sbin source. Moved rc-scripts/init.d/runscript.c to
273     rc-scripts/sbin/runscript.c. Added manpage for start-stop-daemon.
274     Start-stop-daemon is moved here from sysvinit by the way. There is stuff
275     in this ChangeLog that needs to be removed! Like the changes to hosts,
276     profile. /etc/{passwd,group} have minor UID and GID type fixes for
277 woodchip 1.17 users ftp, postgres, xfs. Tweaked tarball.sh to not include CVS
278     directories.
279 woodchip 1.16
280 woodchip 1.13 29 Nov 2001; Donny Davies (woodchip@gentoo.org): Added a man directory
281     to rc-scripts. Checked in two manpages there, one for modules.autoload.5
282 woodchip 1.14 and one for update-modules.8. These were adapted from Debian. Updated
283     tarball.sh to include the new man directory. Updated baselayout to install
284     these manpages. Slightly tweak the /etc/modules.autoload comments.
285 woodchip 1.13
286 drobbins 1.15 28 Nov 2001; Martin Schlemmer (azarah@gentoo.org): Updated /sbin/init
287     to work correctly with the 'gentoo=nodevfs' option, and cleaned
288     out old code.
289    
290     Updated /etc/init.d/bootmisc with additional lock files to clean.
291    
292     27 Nov 2001; Martin Schlemmer (azarah@gentoo.org): Updated
293     /etc/init.d/depscan.sh for a virtual 'use' depend, called 'logger'
294     that can be used for services that needs to have a logger started
295     before they are started. Updated /etc/conf.d/basic with $SYSLOGGER
296     that is used to define what loggers the 'logger' depend represent.
297    
298     26 Nov 2001; Martin Schlemmer (azarah@gentoo.org): Updated
299     /etc/passwd and /etc/group with minor fixes to pass pwck and grpck.
300    
301     25 Nov 2001; Martin Schlemmer (azarah@gentoo.org): Changed umask in
302     /etc/profile for the user to 077 for security.
303    
304     Added a stop() function to /etc/init.d/clock. Also removed uneeded
305     'source /etc/rc.conf' line.
306    
307     Updated /etc/init.d/hostname to set the hostname to 'localhost' if
308     /etc/hostname is invalid.
309    
310     Updated /sbin/init to move the entries in /lib/dev-state to /dev before
311     running devfsd, as it did still not save settings properly. Also removed
312     old /dev-state/compat stuff.
313    
314 drobbins 1.12 25 Nov 2001; ncsd, the name service cache daemon script, has been removed
315     from the default "default" runlevel. It still exists in the archive so that
316 drobbins 1.15 users who want/need it can add it easily.
317 drobbins 1.12
318 drobbins 1.11 25 Nov 2001; Updated the /etc/fstab; removed usbdevfs (explicitly mounted),
319 drobbins 1.15 removed notail from the ext2 boot partition, other cleanups.
320 drobbins 1.11
321 drobbins 1.10 25 Nov 2001; Fixed init.d/clock script to work in UTC mode.
322 drobbins 1.15
323     24 Nov 2001; Martin Schlemmer (azarah@gentoo.org): Added /etc/devfsd.conf
324     and updated /sbin/init to use a new scheme for saving /dev permissions.
325     Also moved /dev-state to /lib/dev-state which is a more standard location.
326    
327     Fixed a ugly bug in /etc/init.d/depscan.sh. If a service depended on
328     itself, calling depscan.sh or changing runlevels cause a tempory effect
329     similar to a 'mini fork bomb'. Afterwards the depends was broken, and
330     changing runlevels did not want to work.
331    
332     Updated /etc/init.d/halt.sh to terminate and display message for devfsd.
333     More cosmetic than anything else, but cant hurt with the new dev-state
334     scheme.
335    
336     Updated /sbin/init to set the console log level to 1, so that bootup
337     can be much cleaner. Also updated /etc/init.d/modules not to have
338     a logger in it 'use' depends, as it should not be needed anymore.
339    
340     Updated /sbin/rc to check if devfsd is still running between runlevel
341     changes.
342    
343     Updated /etc/init.d/modules to run update-modules. We want to be sure
344     /etc/modules.conf is updated when running depmod -a.
345    
346     Change ftp's uid to 21 in /etc/passwd (was the same as bind). Also
347     added a entry for xfs (X Font Server) in /etc/passwd and /etc/group.
348    
349     Added /etc/init.d/net.ppp0, /etc/conf.d/net.ppp0 and
350     /usr/lib/ppp/chat-default as part of my new pppd scripts. Also
351     updated tarball.sh to handle ppp/chat-default.
352    
353 azarah 1.19 Added /etc/skel/.bash* to make things cleaner.
354 drobbins 1.15
355 azarah 1.19 Other minor changes.
356 drobbins 1.15
357 woodchip 1.9 17 Nov 2001; Donny Davies (woodchip@gentoo.org): Added /etc/shells file
358     to rc-scripts. Can remove it from sys-libs/shadow at the next release.
359    
360 drobbins 1.8 * rc-scripts 1.1.8 (15 Nov 2001)
361    
362     16 Nov 2001; removed bogus "mountall.test" script.
363 drobbins 1.7
364 drobbins 1.8 15 Nov 2001; Martin Schlemmer (azarah@gentoo.org): Updated
365     init.d/{runscript.sh,depscan.sh}, sbin/rc to the new dep being 'use' not
366     'uses', as it fits better with 'need' (not 'needs'). Also removed unneeded
367     for loop from init.d/depscan.sh, and other fixes. Updated names of new
368     functions in init.d/runscript.sh to better sounding ones. Updated
369     init.d/modules, init.d/netmount to use 'use'. Lots of other fixes/cleanups.
370     Removed try() out of init.d/runscript.sh (why was this here ?).
371    
372     14 Nov 2001; Martin Schlemmer (azarah@gentoo.org): init.d/bootmisc: Now
373 drobbins 1.15 cleans /tmp. Also creates /etc/resolv.conf if it doesn't exist.
374 drobbins 1.8
375 drobbins 1.15 init.d/hostname: Added check for a valid /etc/hostname.
376 drobbins 1.8
377 drobbins 1.15 init.d/keymaps: Added check for valid $KEYMAP.
378 drobbins 1.8
379 drobbins 1.15 init.d/modules: Added sysklogd, metalog, syslog-ng as 'use' deps. This
380     should solve Woodchip's syslog+glue issue. We just have to change the
381     console loglevel for metalog and syslog-ng (sysklogd already updated) not to
382     output info and warnings, etc to the console, then boot will be much cleaner.
383     Also the install guide will need changing to add the loggers to 'boot' and
384     not 'default' runlevel.
385 drobbins 1.8
386 drobbins 1.15 init.d/mountall.test: Hopefully updated to the new rc-scripts style. Is
387     this really needed (I cannot see that it is used anywhere ...)?
388 drobbins 1.8
389     13 Nov 2001; Martin Schlemmer (azarah@gentoo.org): Updated
390 drobbins 1.15 init.d/runscript.sh, init.d/depscan.sh and sbin/rc with a new depend called
391     'uses'. It basically have the same usage as 'need', except that it do not
392     start services that is not in the current and 'boot' runlevels.
393 drobbins 1.8
394 drobbins 1.15 Updated init.d/netmount to use the 'uses' depend.
395 drobbins 1.8
396     11 Nov 2001; Martin Schlemmer (azarah@gentoo.org): Fixed init.d/runscript.sh
397     not to destroy the 'need' depends in /${svcdir}/need. This caused subsequent
398     starting and stopping of services not to start depends.
399    
400     7 Nov 2001; Martin Schlemmer (azarah@gentoo.org): Fixed a problem in sbin/rc
401     where the ${svcdir}/softscripts directory got destroyed before stopping
402     running services scheduled to be stopped. This with the fact that $SOFTLEVEL
403     was set too early, caused the services to be stopped in the wrong order.
404    
405     30 Oct 2001; Martin Schlemmer (azarah@gentoo.org): Modified init.d/netmount to
406     check if any network filesystems is mounted.
407    
408     29 Oct 2001; init.d/netmount: umount -art doesn't seem to work, so I added
409     some awk and grep magic to find all remote filesystems and umount them.
410    
411     29 Oct 2001; Martin Schlemmer (azarah@gentoo.org): A fix for checkroot
412     (missing "/"); it now actually checks the root filesystem. Also, a
413     localmount cleanliness fix.
