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