4
5 * 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 $PATH on boot in some cases.
16
17 Updated /etc/init.d/keymap and /etc/init.d/consolefont to work with
18 the new sys-apps/kbd package.
19
20 * rc-scripts 1.2.7 (3 March 2002)
21
22 3 March 2002; Martin Schlemmer <azarah@gentoo.org>: fixed the problem
23 of rc-scripts trying to start/stop a service multiple times if it
24 fails to do so. Updated /etc/init.d/runscript.sh and /sbin/rc for
25 this.
26
27 Fixing some variable declarations in /etc/init.d/runscript.sh caused
28 /etc/init.d/net.lo to fail on stop ($IFACE was set invalid). Fixed
29 this.
30
31 Added caching of the "depend() { need foo; } " lines, and updated
32 /etc/init.d/depscan.sh to touch the actual files less. This should
33 speedup dependancy caching a lot, especially on slow machines.
34
35 Updated /etc/passwd to have users with no shell defined, use /bin/false
36 for security.
37
38 Update /etc/fstab to mention /dev/shm since we dont mount it anymore.
39
40 1 March 2002; Martin Schlemmer <azarah@gentoo.org>: added a wrapper for
41 sourcing the rc-scripts to eliminate syntax errors. Thanks to
42 Karl Trygve Kalleberg (aka karltk) for the idea. Updated
43 /etc/init.d/depscan.sh, /etc/init.d/functions.sh and
44 /etc/init.d/runscript.sh for this (added wrap_rcscript() function).
45
46 Removed stopping of dependant services that have current service as
47 a 'use'dependancy ... should be less confusing now.
48 Updated /etc/init.d/runscript.sh for this.
49
50 28 Feb 2002; Martin Schlemmer <azarah@gentoo.org>: add /etc/conf.d/local.start
51 and /etc/conf.d/local.stop for adding any misc programs to startup. This
52 should pretty much have /etc/init.d/ static, except for baselayout updates,
53 etc.
54
55 27 Feb 2002; Martin Schlemmer <azarah@gentoo.org>: in some wierd cases,
56 a redundent /dev/.devfsd on a unmounted /dev can cause problems. Fixed
57 this in /sbin/rc.
58
59 Added the patches from Grant Goodyear (aka g2boojum) to enable us to
60 use a ramdisk to store the contents of ${svcdir}. Updated /sbin/rc,
61 /etc/init.d/functions.sh and /etc/init.d/checkroot for this.
62
63 26 Feb 2002; Martin Schlemmer <azarah@gentoo.org>: fix my brain dead
64 update of the 25th. It really should keep "gentoo=nodevfs" in mind.
65 Also added 'get_bootparam()' to help in retrieving kernel options.
66 Updated /etc/init.d/functions.sh, /etc/init.d/checkroot and /sbin/rc
67 for this.
68
69 Updated /etc/init.d/consolefont to work without devfs as well.
70
71 When rebooting or shutting down, a service should not fail to stop
72 if a service it depends on, fails. Updated /etc/init.d/runscript.sh
73 for this.
74
75 25 Feb 2002; Martin Schlemmer <azarah@gentoo.org>: added a check if
76 /dev is mounted when creating entries for /etc/mtab. This should solve a
77 invalid entry or /dev being mounted even with 'gentoo=nodevfs' option.
78 Updated /etc/init.d/checkroot for this.
79
80 17 Feb 2002: Daniel Robbins <drobbins@gentoo.org>: Made "xfs" the default
81 filesystem in /etc/fstab (from ReiserFS) and removed "notail" option (it's
82 just in a comment now)
83
84 17 Feb 2002: Martin Schlemmer (azarah@gentoo.org): more fixes to 'after' and
85 'before', updated /etc/init.d/runscript.sh for this. This should fix
86 services not getting started in the correct order in a tight loop, services
87 getting stopped out of order, and some other sanity checks. Updated
88 rc-script.sh for updated help.
89
90 15 Feb 2002: Martin Schlemmer (azarah@gentoo.org): update /etc/profile to
91 resolve bug #588. Reimplemented things a bit, and added the 'after' type.
92 'before' and 'after' will only work currently for a change of runlevel.
93 Updated /etc/init.d/depscan.sh, /etc/init.d/runscript.sh and /sbin/rc for it.
94
95 13 Feb 2002: Martin Schlemmer (azarah@gentoo.org): add some more entries to
96 /etc/devfsd.conf to make alsa users life easier ... thanks Tod.
97
98 12 Feb 2002: Martin Schlemmer (azarah@gentoo.org): Some more cleanups to
99 /etc/init.d/depscan.sh and /etc/init.d/runscript.sh.
100
101 Fixed some services not starting again when restarting a service.
102 Seems simple is still the best way.
103
104 Fixed some other problems created with feature additions and cleanups.
105
106 11 Feb 2002: Martin Schlemmer (azarah@gentoo.org): General cleanups to
107 /etc/init.d/depscan.sh and /etc/init.d/runscript.sh.
108
109 Added 'before *' to /etc/init.d/checkroot to make sure it gets
110 started first.
111
112 Added 'use *' to /etc/init.d/local to make sure it gets started
113 last.
114
115 10 Feb 2002: Martin Schlemmer (azarah@gentoo.org): Fixed /sbin/rc
116 to stop a service on change of runlevel if it is in 'use' by
117 another service.
118
119 Added the 'provide' depend type for creating virtual services.
120 Updated /etc/init.d/depscan.sh for this.
121
122 Added the 'before' depend type. This is more for changing the
123 order services start in. Updated /etc/init.d/depscan.sh and
124 /etc/init.d/functions.sh for this.
125
126 Updated /etc/init.d/depscan.sh to work with '*' as argument for
127 dependancy types. This can be used with 'use' and 'before' to
128 start a script last or first respectively.
129
130 Added save_options() and get_options() to /etc/init.d/functions.sh
131 for saving misc settings between startup/shutdown. Updated
132 /etc/init.d/net.eth0 to use these and properly down virtual
133 interfaces.
134
135 6 Feb 2002: Martin Schlemmer (azarah@gentoo.org): updated both
136 /etc/init.d/bootmisc and /etc/init.d/keymaps to be quiet on no
137 errors.
138
139 * rc-scripts 1.2.6 (6 Feb 2002)
140
141 2 Feb 2002: Martin Schlemmer (azarah@gentoo.org): updated /etc/net.eth0
142 to specify the gateway device via the $gateway variable (something like
143 gateway="eth0/192.168.0.1").
144
145 2 Feb 2002: Martin Schlemmer (azarah@gentoo.org): added rc-script
146 /etc/init.d/numlock, for enabling numlock at boot.
147
148 29 Jan 2002: Martin Schlemmer (azarah@gentoo.org): hopefully the
149 last fix to /etc/init.d/netmount to umount cleanly. This fix
150 implements a retry if not successful the first time, and will
151 kill processess using the mount. Also small type-o fix to
152 /etc/init.d/halt.sh.
153
154 27 Jan 2002: Donny Davies (woodchip@gentoo.org): security fix to
155 /etc/pam.d/sshd,login,chsh: added pam_shells.so to the stack.
156 Fixed /etc/passwd,group for user/group mysql.
157
158 27 Jan 2002: Martin Schlemmer (azarah@gentoo.org): added charset
159 map file support to /etc/init.d/consolefont and the setting to
160 /etc/rc.conf.
161
162 25 Jan 2002: Martin Schlemmer (azarah@gentoo.org): fixed dircolors
163 in skel files to support both versions of dircolors.
164
165 23 Jan 2002: Martin Schlemmer (azarah@gentoo.org): fixed bug
166 in the restart stuff of /etc/init.d/runscript.sh that caused
167 a restart of a 'net' service not to restart services again
168 that depended on it.
169
170 * rc-scripts 1.2.5 (20 Jan 2002)
171
172 20 Jan 2002: Martin Schlemmer (azarah@gentoo.org): updated
173 /etc/init.d/net.eth0 to 'use' pcmcia.
174
175 8 Jan 2002: Martin Schlemmer (azarah@gentoo.org): added '--sh' to
176 the dircolors command in /etc/skel/.bash_profile to handle cases
177 where bash do not export $SHELL.
178
179 6 Jan 2002: Martin Schlemmer (azarah@gentoo.org): updated
180 /etc/init.d/runscripts.sh, /etc/init.d/net.eth0, /etc/conf.d/net and
181 removed /etc/init.d/net.eth0-dhcp to reflect a new 'bsd-ish' config
182 scheme for the net.eth* scripts.
183
184 6 Jan 2002: Donny Davies (woodchip@gentoo.org): Removed email address
185 from manpages; no need for that..
186
187 5 Jan 2002: Martin Schlemmer (azarah@gentoo.org): fix type-o in
188 /etc/devfsd.conf; had 'dvd' in the cdrw stuff.
189
190 * rc-scripts 1.2.4 (30 Dec 2001)
191
192 30 Dec 2001: Daniel Robbins (drobbins@gentoo.org): Changed default umask
193 back to 022 as it should be.
194
195 30 Dec 2001; Martin Schlemmer (azarah@gentoo.org): Updated
196 /etc/init.d/checkfs to return 0 if the fs was successfully repaired.
197
198 29 Dec 2001; Donny Davies (woodchip@gentoo.org):
199 sort -t: -k3,3 -n /etc/passwd,group. Ahhhh :))
200
201 28 Dec 2001; Martin Schlemmer (azarah@gentoo.org); Updated
202 /etc/init.d/depscan.sh to store info about missing dependancies of
203 type 'need' in ${svcdir}/broken. Also updated /etc/init.d/runscript.sh
204 to use this when starting a script ('need' dependancies is critical for
205 startup). Added the broken() function to /etc/init.d/runscript.sh
206 to list the missing dependancies.
207
208 Updated /etc/init.d/runscript.sh for svc_start() to have better error
209 checking.
210
211 Updated /etc/init.d/functions.sh with ewend(), which is the same as
212 eend(), but print a warning on error, not a error. Updated
213 /etc/init.d/checkroot and /etc/init.d/checkfs to use this function.
214
215 27 Dec 2001; Martin Schlemmer (azarah@gentoo.org); Update /sbin/runscript.c
216 to run /etc/init.d/rc-help.sh if no arguments is passed to a rc-script.
217
218 Added /etc/init.d/rc-help.sh, simple script that prints out help for
219 the rc-scripts.
220
221 25 Dec 2001; Martin Schlemmer (azarah@gentoo.org); Update
222 /etc/init.d/shutdown.sh and /etc/init.d/reboot.sh not to force the
223 halt and reboot. This fixes a problem where / was not unmounted
224 properly in some cases.
225
226 24 Dec 2001; Martin Schlemmer (azarah@gentoo.org): Move $svcdir to
227 to /etc/init.d/functions.sh, and update /etc/init.d/runscript.sh and
228 /etc/init.d/depscan.sh for this
229
230 Modified /etc/init.d/runscript.sh to also restart the services that
231 depend on a service if that service is restarted. Enhanced the
232 restart function to be able to have custom restart() functions in
233 rc-scripts. The custom restart() have to use svc_stop() and
234 svc_start() to restart the service.
235
236 Add a pause function to /etc/init.d/runscript.sh. It will basically
237 stop a service without stopping the services that depends on that
238 service.
239
240 Add a pause function to /etc/init.d/runscript.sh. It will basically stop a
241 service without stopping the services that depends on that service.
242
243 * rc-scripts 1.2.3 (18 Dec 2001)
244
245 16 Dec 2001; Martin Schlemmer (azarah@gentoo.org): Moved the stuff from
246 /sbin/init (old) to /sbin/rc (basically drop the init wrapper we used).
247
248 Some cleanups: take out the shm resize comment;
249
250 remove the $wrongmount;
251
252 remove the mountshm() function and insert it directly
253 where needed;
254
255 remove the setting of $PATH as /sbin/init already do
256 this for us.
257
258 Added the if statement to detect if it is the first time the 'boot'
259 runlevel is executed (if [ "$RUNLEVEL" = "S" ] && [ "$argv1" = "boot" ]).
260 $RUNLEVEL is a env var set by /sbin/init.
261
262 Also added functionality to detect if the kernel have DEVFS support
263 compiled in; seems new users thinks devfs is unstable and as they do
264 not always read the docs, it does not get compiled in ;/ Should
265 make live for us a bit easier.
266
267 14 Dec 2001; Martin Schlemmer (azarah@gentoo.org): Fixed /sbin/rc to kill
268 a cosmetic bug in the part that stops all the unneeded services.
269
270 * rc-scripts 1.2.2 (8 Dec 2001)
271
272 10 Dec 2001; Added a localhost entry in /etc/hosts.
273
274 8 Dec 2001; Donny Davies (woodchip@gentoo.org): Added start-stop-daemon.c
275 to rc-scripts/sbin source. Moved rc-scripts/init.d/runscript.c to
276 rc-scripts/sbin/runscript.c. Added manpage for start-stop-daemon.
277 Start-stop-daemon is moved here from sysvinit by the way. There is stuff
278 in this ChangeLog that needs to be removed! Like the changes to hosts,
279 profile. /etc/{passwd,group} have minor UID and GID type fixes for
280 users ftp, postgres, xfs. Tweaked tarball.sh to not include CVS
281 directories.
282
283 29 Nov 2001; Donny Davies (woodchip@gentoo.org): Added a man directory
284 to rc-scripts. Checked in two manpages there, one for modules.autoload.5
285 and one for update-modules.8. These were adapted from Debian. Updated
286 tarball.sh to include the new man directory. Updated baselayout to install
287 these manpages. Slightly tweak the /etc/modules.autoload comments.
288
289 28 Nov 2001; Martin Schlemmer (azarah@gentoo.org): Updated /sbin/init
290 to work correctly with the 'gentoo=nodevfs' option, and cleaned
291 out old code.
292
293 Updated /etc/init.d/bootmisc with additional lock files to clean.
294
295 27 Nov 2001; Martin Schlemmer (azarah@gentoo.org): Updated
296 /etc/init.d/depscan.sh for a virtual 'use' depend, called 'logger'
297 that can be used for services that needs to have a logger started
298 before they are started. Updated /etc/conf.d/basic with $SYSLOGGER
299 that is used to define what loggers the 'logger' depend represent.
300
301 26 Nov 2001; Martin Schlemmer (azarah@gentoo.org): Updated
302 /etc/passwd and /etc/group with minor fixes to pass pwck and grpck.
303
304 25 Nov 2001; Martin Schlemmer (azarah@gentoo.org): Changed umask in
305 /etc/profile for the user to 077 for security.
306
307 Added a stop() function to /etc/init.d/clock. Also removed uneeded
308 'source /etc/rc.conf' line.
309
310 Updated /etc/init.d/hostname to set the hostname to 'localhost' if
311 /etc/hostname is invalid.
312
313 Updated /sbin/init to move the entries in /lib/dev-state to /dev before
314 running devfsd, as it did still not save settings properly. Also removed
315 old /dev-state/compat stuff.
316
317 25 Nov 2001; ncsd, the name service cache daemon script, has been removed
318 from the default "default" runlevel. It still exists in the archive so that
319 users who want/need it can add it easily.
320
321 25 Nov 2001; Updated the /etc/fstab; removed usbdevfs (explicitly mounted),
322 removed notail from the ext2 boot partition, other cleanups.
323
324 25 Nov 2001; Fixed init.d/clock script to work in UTC mode.
325
326 24 Nov 2001; Martin Schlemmer (azarah@gentoo.org): Added /etc/devfsd.conf
327 and updated /sbin/init to use a new scheme for saving /dev permissions.
328 Also moved /dev-state to /lib/dev-state which is a more standard location.
329
330 Fixed a ugly bug in /etc/init.d/depscan.sh. If a service depended on
331 itself, calling depscan.sh or changing runlevels cause a tempory effect
332 similar to a 'mini fork bomb'. Afterwards the depends was broken, and
333 changing runlevels did not want to work.
334
335 Updated /etc/init.d/halt.sh to terminate and display message for devfsd.
336 More cosmetic than anything else, but cant hurt with the new dev-state
337 scheme.
338
339 Updated /sbin/init to set the console log level to 1, so that bootup
340 can be much cleaner. Also updated /etc/init.d/modules not to have
341 a logger in it 'use' depends, as it should not be needed anymore.
342
343 Updated /sbin/rc to check if devfsd is still running between runlevel
344 changes.
345
346 Updated /etc/init.d/modules to run update-modules. We want to be sure
347 /etc/modules.conf is updated when running depmod -a.
348
349 Change ftp's uid to 21 in /etc/passwd (was the same as bind). Also
350 added a entry for xfs (X Font Server) in /etc/passwd and /etc/group.
351
352 Added /etc/init.d/net.ppp0, /etc/conf.d/net.ppp0 and
353 /usr/lib/ppp/chat-default as part of my new pppd scripts. Also
354 updated tarball.sh to handle ppp/chat-default.
355
356 Added /etc/skel/.bash* to make things cleaner.
357
358 Other minor changes.
359
360 17 Nov 2001; Donny Davies (woodchip@gentoo.org): Added /etc/shells file
361 to rc-scripts. Can remove it from sys-libs/shadow at the next release.
362
363 * rc-scripts 1.1.8 (15 Nov 2001)
364
365 16 Nov 2001; removed bogus "mountall.test" script.
366
367 15 Nov 2001; Martin Schlemmer (azarah@gentoo.org): Updated
368 init.d/{runscript.sh,depscan.sh}, sbin/rc to the new dep being 'use' not
369 'uses', as it fits better with 'need' (not 'needs'). Also removed unneeded
370 for loop from init.d/depscan.sh, and other fixes. Updated names of new
371 functions in init.d/runscript.sh to better sounding ones. Updated
372 init.d/modules, init.d/netmount to use 'use'. Lots of other fixes/cleanups.
373 Removed try() out of init.d/runscript.sh (why was this here ?).
374
375 14 Nov 2001; Martin Schlemmer (azarah@gentoo.org): init.d/bootmisc: Now
376 cleans /tmp. Also creates /etc/resolv.conf if it doesn't exist.
377
378 init.d/hostname: Added check for a valid /etc/hostname.
379
380 init.d/keymaps: Added check for valid $KEYMAP.
381
382 init.d/modules: Added sysklogd, metalog, syslog-ng as 'use' deps. This
383 should solve Woodchip's syslog+glue issue. We just have to change the
384 console loglevel for metalog and syslog-ng (sysklogd already updated) not to
385 output info and warnings, etc to the console, then boot will be much cleaner.
386 Also the install guide will need changing to add the loggers to 'boot' and
387 not 'default' runlevel.
388
389 init.d/mountall.test: Hopefully updated to the new rc-scripts style. Is
390 this really needed (I cannot see that it is used anywhere ...)?
391
392 13 Nov 2001; Martin Schlemmer (azarah@gentoo.org): Updated
393 init.d/runscript.sh, init.d/depscan.sh and sbin/rc with a new depend called
394 'uses'. It basically have the same usage as 'need', except that it do not
395 start services that is not in the current and 'boot' runlevels.
396
397 Updated init.d/netmount to use the 'uses' depend.
398
399 11 Nov 2001; Martin Schlemmer (azarah@gentoo.org): Fixed init.d/runscript.sh
400 not to destroy the 'need' depends in /${svcdir}/need. This caused subsequent
401 starting and stopping of services not to start depends.
402
403 7 Nov 2001; Martin Schlemmer (azarah@gentoo.org): Fixed a problem in sbin/rc
404 where the ${svcdir}/softscripts directory got destroyed before stopping
405 running services scheduled to be stopped. This with the fact that $SOFTLEVEL
406 was set too early, caused the services to be stopped in the wrong order.
407
408 30 Oct 2001; Martin Schlemmer (azarah@gentoo.org): Modified init.d/netmount to
409 check if any network filesystems is mounted.
410
411 29 Oct 2001; init.d/netmount: umount -art doesn't seem to work, so I added
412 some awk and grep magic to find all remote filesystems and umount them.
413
414 29 Oct 2001; Martin Schlemmer (azarah@gentoo.org): A fix for checkroot
415 (missing "/"); it now actually checks the root filesystem. Also, a
416 localmount cleanliness fix.
417

444 Removed from CVS; they live in their respective packages.

446 rc-scripts-1.1.5, released 02 Sep 2001
447 ====================================
448
449 *sbin/rc-update
450 New version of the rc-update command for the new initscripts. Works
451 similarly to the old version, except this one updates our dependency
452 cache.
453
454 *init.d/functions.sh
455 New and better looking informational message functions (einfo, einfon).
456 Brand new message functions (ewarn).
457
458 *sbin/init, init.d/checkroot
459 We're going back to a /proc/mounts-based mtab symlink because it's
460 just plain better. Appropriate changes made.
