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