4
5 30 Dec 2001; Martin Schlemmer (azarah@gentoo.org): Updated
6 /etc/init.d/checkfs to return 0 if the fs was successfully repaired.
7
8 29 Dec 2001; Donny Davies (woodchip@gentoo.org):
9 sort -t: -k3,3 -n /etc/passwd,group. Ahhhh :))
10
11 28 Dec 2001; Martin Schlemmer (azarah@gentoo.org); Updated
12 /etc/init.d/depscan.sh to store info about missing dependancies of
13 type 'need' in ${svcdir}/broken. Also updated /etc/init.d/runscript.sh
14 to use this when starting a script ('need' dependancies is critical for
15 startup). Added the broken() function to /etc/init.d/runscript.sh
16 to list the missing dependancies.
17
18 Updated /etc/init.d/runscript.sh for svc_start() to have better error
19 checking.
20
21 Updated /etc/init.d/functions.sh with ewend(), which is the same as
22 eend(), but print a warning on error, not a error. Updated
23 /etc/init.d/checkroot and /etc/init.d/checkfs to use this function.
24
25 27 Dec 2001; Martin Schlemmer (azarah@gentoo.org); Update /sbin/runscript.c
26 to run /etc/init.d/rc-help.sh if no arguments is passed to a rc-script.
27
28 Added /etc/init.d/rc-help.sh, simple script that prints out help for
29 the rc-scripts.
30
31 25 Dec 2001; Martin Schlemmer (azarah@gentoo.org); Update
32 /etc/init.d/shutdown.sh and /etc/init.d/reboot.sh not to force the
33 halt and reboot. This fixes a problem where / was not unmounted
34 properly in some cases.
35
36 24 Dec 2001; Martin Schlemmer (azarah@gentoo.org): Move $svcdir to
37 to /etc/init.d/functions.sh, and update /etc/init.d/runscript.sh and
38 /etc/init.d/depscan.sh for this
39
40 Modified /etc/init.d/runscript.sh to also restart the services that
41 depend on a service if that service is restarted. Enhanced the
42 restart function to be able to have custom restart() functions in
43 rc-scripts. The custom restart() have to use svc_stop() and
44 svc_start() to restart the service.
45
46 Add a pause function to /etc/init.d/runscript.sh. It will basically
47 stop a service without stopping the services that depends on that
48 service.
49
50 * rc-scripts 1.2.3 (18 Dec 2001)
51
52 16 Dec 2001; Martin Schlemmer (azarah@gentoo.org): Moved the stuff from
53 /sbin/init (old) to /sbin/rc (basically drop the init wrapper we used).
54
55 Some cleanups: take out the shm resize comment;
56
57 remove the $wrongmount;
58
59 remove the mountshm() function and insert it directly
60 where needed;
61
62 remove the setting of $PATH as /sbin/init already do
63 this for us.
64
65 Added the if statement to detect if it is the first time the 'boot'
66 runlevel is executed (if [ "$RUNLEVEL" = "S" ] && [ "$argv1" = "boot" ]).
67 $RUNLEVEL is a env var set by /sbin/init.
68
69 Also added functionality to detect if the kernel have DEVFS support
70 compiled in; seems new users thinks devfs is unstable and as they do
71 not always read the docs, it does not get compiled in ;/ Should
72 make live for us a bit easier.
73
74 14 Dec 2001; Martin Schlemmer (azarah@gentoo.org): Fixed /sbin/rc to kill
75 a cosmetic bug in the part that stops all the unneeded services.
76
77 * rc-scripts 1.2.2 (8 Dec 2001)
78
79 10 Dec 2001; Added a localhost entry in /etc/hosts.
80
81 8 Dec 2001; Donny Davies (woodchip@gentoo.org): Added start-stop-daemon.c
82 to rc-scripts/sbin source. Moved rc-scripts/init.d/runscript.c to
83 rc-scripts/sbin/runscript.c. Added manpage for start-stop-daemon.
84 Start-stop-daemon is moved here from sysvinit by the way. There is stuff
85 in this ChangeLog that needs to be removed! Like the changes to hosts,
86 profile. /etc/{passwd,group} have minor UID and GID type fixes for
87 users ftp, postgres, xfs. Tweaked tarball.sh to not include CVS
88 directories.
89
90 29 Nov 2001; Donny Davies (woodchip@gentoo.org): Added a man directory
91 to rc-scripts. Checked in two manpages there, one for modules.autoload.5
92 and one for update-modules.8. These were adapted from Debian. Updated
93 tarball.sh to include the new man directory. Updated baselayout to install
94 these manpages. Slightly tweak the /etc/modules.autoload comments.
95
96 28 Nov 2001; Martin Schlemmer (azarah@gentoo.org): Updated /sbin/init
97 to work correctly with the 'gentoo=nodevfs' option, and cleaned
98 out old code.
99
100 Updated /etc/init.d/bootmisc with additional lock files to clean.
101
102 27 Nov 2001; Martin Schlemmer (azarah@gentoo.org): Updated
103 /etc/init.d/depscan.sh for a virtual 'use' depend, called 'logger'
104 that can be used for services that needs to have a logger started
105 before they are started. Updated /etc/conf.d/basic with $SYSLOGGER
106 that is used to define what loggers the 'logger' depend represent.
107
108 26 Nov 2001; Martin Schlemmer (azarah@gentoo.org): Updated
109 /etc/passwd and /etc/group with minor fixes to pass pwck and grpck.
110
111 25 Nov 2001; Martin Schlemmer (azarah@gentoo.org): Changed umask in
112 /etc/profile for the user to 077 for security.
113
114 Added a stop() function to /etc/init.d/clock. Also removed uneeded
115 'source /etc/rc.conf' line.
116
117 Updated /etc/init.d/hostname to set the hostname to 'localhost' if
118 /etc/hostname is invalid.
119
120 Updated /sbin/init to move the entries in /lib/dev-state to /dev before
121 running devfsd, as it did still not save settings properly. Also removed
122 old /dev-state/compat stuff.
123
124 25 Nov 2001; ncsd, the name service cache daemon script, has been removed
125 from the default "default" runlevel. It still exists in the archive so that
126 users who want/need it can add it easily.
127
128 25 Nov 2001; Updated the /etc/fstab; removed usbdevfs (explicitly mounted),
129 removed notail from the ext2 boot partition, other cleanups.
130
131 25 Nov 2001; Fixed init.d/clock script to work in UTC mode.
132
133 24 Nov 2001; Martin Schlemmer (azarah@gentoo.org): Added /etc/devfsd.conf
134 and updated /sbin/init to use a new scheme for saving /dev permissions.
135 Also moved /dev-state to /lib/dev-state which is a more standard location.
136
137 Fixed a ugly bug in /etc/init.d/depscan.sh. If a service depended on
138 itself, calling depscan.sh or changing runlevels cause a tempory effect
139 similar to a 'mini fork bomb'. Afterwards the depends was broken, and
140 changing runlevels did not want to work.
141
142 Updated /etc/init.d/halt.sh to terminate and display message for devfsd.
143 More cosmetic than anything else, but cant hurt with the new dev-state
144 scheme.
145
146 Updated /sbin/init to set the console log level to 1, so that bootup
147 can be much cleaner. Also updated /etc/init.d/modules not to have
148 a logger in it 'use' depends, as it should not be needed anymore.
149
150 Updated /sbin/rc to check if devfsd is still running between runlevel
151 changes.
152
153 Updated /etc/init.d/modules to run update-modules. We want to be sure
154 /etc/modules.conf is updated when running depmod -a.
155
156 Change ftp's uid to 21 in /etc/passwd (was the same as bind). Also
157 added a entry for xfs (X Font Server) in /etc/passwd and /etc/group.
158
159 Added /etc/init.d/net.ppp0, /etc/conf.d/net.ppp0 and
160 /usr/lib/ppp/chat-default as part of my new pppd scripts. Also
161 updated tarball.sh to handle ppp/chat-default.
162
163 Added /etc/skel/.bash* to make things cleaner.
164
165 Other minor changes.
166
167 17 Nov 2001; Donny Davies (woodchip@gentoo.org): Added /etc/shells file
168 to rc-scripts. Can remove it from sys-libs/shadow at the next release.
169
170 * rc-scripts 1.1.8 (15 Nov 2001)
171
172 16 Nov 2001; removed bogus "mountall.test" script.
173
174 15 Nov 2001; Martin Schlemmer (azarah@gentoo.org): Updated
175 init.d/{runscript.sh,depscan.sh}, sbin/rc to the new dep being 'use' not
176 'uses', as it fits better with 'need' (not 'needs'). Also removed unneeded
177 for loop from init.d/depscan.sh, and other fixes. Updated names of new
178 functions in init.d/runscript.sh to better sounding ones. Updated
179 init.d/modules, init.d/netmount to use 'use'. Lots of other fixes/cleanups.
180 Removed try() out of init.d/runscript.sh (why was this here ?).
181
182 14 Nov 2001; Martin Schlemmer (azarah@gentoo.org): init.d/bootmisc: Now
183 cleans /tmp. Also creates /etc/resolv.conf if it doesn't exist.
184
185 init.d/hostname: Added check for a valid /etc/hostname.
186
187 init.d/keymaps: Added check for valid $KEYMAP.
188
189 init.d/modules: Added sysklogd, metalog, syslog-ng as 'use' deps. This
190 should solve Woodchip's syslog+glue issue. We just have to change the
191 console loglevel for metalog and syslog-ng (sysklogd already updated) not to
192 output info and warnings, etc to the console, then boot will be much cleaner.
193 Also the install guide will need changing to add the loggers to 'boot' and
194 not 'default' runlevel.
195
196 init.d/mountall.test: Hopefully updated to the new rc-scripts style. Is
197 this really needed (I cannot see that it is used anywhere ...)?
198
199 13 Nov 2001; Martin Schlemmer (azarah@gentoo.org): Updated
200 init.d/runscript.sh, init.d/depscan.sh and sbin/rc with a new depend called
201 'uses'. It basically have the same usage as 'need', except that it do not
202 start services that is not in the current and 'boot' runlevels.
203
204 Updated init.d/netmount to use the 'uses' depend.
205
206 11 Nov 2001; Martin Schlemmer (azarah@gentoo.org): Fixed init.d/runscript.sh
207 not to destroy the 'need' depends in /${svcdir}/need. This caused subsequent
208 starting and stopping of services not to start depends.
209
210 7 Nov 2001; Martin Schlemmer (azarah@gentoo.org): Fixed a problem in sbin/rc
211 where the ${svcdir}/softscripts directory got destroyed before stopping
212 running services scheduled to be stopped. This with the fact that $SOFTLEVEL
213 was set too early, caused the services to be stopped in the wrong order.
214
215 30 Oct 2001; Martin Schlemmer (azarah@gentoo.org): Modified init.d/netmount to
216 check if any network filesystems is mounted.
217
218 29 Oct 2001; init.d/netmount: umount -art doesn't seem to work, so I added
219 some awk and grep magic to find all remote filesystems and umount them.
220
221 29 Oct 2001; Martin Schlemmer (azarah@gentoo.org): A fix for checkroot
222 (missing "/"); it now actually checks the root filesystem. Also, a
223 localmount cleanliness fix.
224
225 * rc-scripts 1.1.7 (18 Oct 2001)
