4 drobbins 45
5 azarah 107 * rc-scripts 1.2.5 (20 Jan 2002)
6    
7 azarah 106 20 Jan 2002: Martin Schlemmer (azarah@gentoo.org): updated
8     /etc/init.d/net.eth0 to 'use' pcmcia.
9    
10 azarah 102 8 Jan 2002: Martin Schlemmer (azarah@gentoo.org): added '--sh' to
11     the dircolors command in /etc/skel/.bash_profile to handle cases
12     where bash do not export $SHELL.
13    
14     6 Jan 2002: Martin Schlemmer (azarah@gentoo.org): updated
15     /etc/init.d/runscripts.sh, /etc/init.d/net.eth0, /etc/conf.d/net and
16     removed /etc/init.d/net.eth0-dhcp to reflect a new 'bsd-ish' config
17     scheme for the net.eth* scripts.
18    
19 woodchip 100 6 Jan 2002: Donny Davies (woodchip@gentoo.org): Removed email address
20     from manpages; no need for that..
21    
22 azarah 102 5 Jan 2002: Martin Schlemmer (azarah@gentoo.org): fix type-o in
23     /etc/devfsd.conf; had 'dvd' in the cdrw stuff.
24    
25 drobbins 97 * rc-scripts 1.2.4 (30 Dec 2001)
26    
27     30 Dec 2001: Daniel Robbins (drobbins@gentoo.org): Changed default umask
28     back to 022 as it should be.
29    
30 azarah 96 30 Dec 2001; Martin Schlemmer (azarah@gentoo.org): Updated
31     /etc/init.d/checkfs to return 0 if the fs was successfully repaired.
32    
33 woodchip 95 29 Dec 2001; Donny Davies (woodchip@gentoo.org):
34     sort -t: -k3,3 -n /etc/passwd,group. Ahhhh :))
35    
36 azarah 93 28 Dec 2001; Martin Schlemmer (azarah@gentoo.org); Updated
37     /etc/init.d/depscan.sh to store info about missing dependancies of
38     type 'need' in ${svcdir}/broken. Also updated /etc/init.d/runscript.sh
39     to use this when starting a script ('need' dependancies is critical for
40     startup). Added the broken() function to /etc/init.d/runscript.sh
41     to list the missing dependancies.
42    
43     Updated /etc/init.d/runscript.sh for svc_start() to have better error
44     checking.
45    
46     Updated /etc/init.d/functions.sh with ewend(), which is the same as
47     eend(), but print a warning on error, not a error. Updated
48     /etc/init.d/checkroot and /etc/init.d/checkfs to use this function.
49    
50     27 Dec 2001; Martin Schlemmer (azarah@gentoo.org); Update /sbin/runscript.c
51     to run /etc/init.d/rc-help.sh if no arguments is passed to a rc-script.
52    
53     Added /etc/init.d/rc-help.sh, simple script that prints out help for
54     the rc-scripts.
55    
56 azarah 91 25 Dec 2001; Martin Schlemmer (azarah@gentoo.org); Update
57     /etc/init.d/shutdown.sh and /etc/init.d/reboot.sh not to force the
58     halt and reboot. This fixes a problem where / was not unmounted
59     properly in some cases.
60    
61     24 Dec 2001; Martin Schlemmer (azarah@gentoo.org): Move $svcdir to
62     to /etc/init.d/functions.sh, and update /etc/init.d/runscript.sh and
63     /etc/init.d/depscan.sh for this
64    
65     Modified /etc/init.d/runscript.sh to also restart the services that
66     depend on a service if that service is restarted. Enhanced the
67     restart function to be able to have custom restart() functions in
68     rc-scripts. The custom restart() have to use svc_stop() and
69     svc_start() to restart the service.
70    
71     Add a pause function to /etc/init.d/runscript.sh. It will basically
72     stop a service without stopping the services that depends on that
73     service.
74    
75 drobbins 97 Add a pause function to /etc/init.d/runscript.sh. It will basically stop a
76     service without stopping the services that depends on that service.
77    
78 azarah 91 * rc-scripts 1.2.3 (18 Dec 2001)
79    
80     16 Dec 2001; Martin Schlemmer (azarah@gentoo.org): Moved the stuff from
81     /sbin/init (old) to /sbin/rc (basically drop the init wrapper we used).
82    
83     Some cleanups: take out the shm resize comment;
84    
85     remove the $wrongmount;
86    
87     remove the mountshm() function and insert it directly
88     where needed;
89    
90     remove the setting of $PATH as /sbin/init already do
91     this for us.
92    
93     Added the if statement to detect if it is the first time the 'boot'
94     runlevel is executed (if [ "$RUNLEVEL" = "S" ] && [ "$argv1" = "boot" ]).
95     $RUNLEVEL is a env var set by /sbin/init.
96    
97     Also added functionality to detect if the kernel have DEVFS support
98     compiled in; seems new users thinks devfs is unstable and as they do
99     not always read the docs, it does not get compiled in ;/ Should
100     make live for us a bit easier.
101    
102     14 Dec 2001; Martin Schlemmer (azarah@gentoo.org): Fixed /sbin/rc to kill
103     a cosmetic bug in the part that stops all the unneeded services.
104    
105 woodchip 79 * rc-scripts 1.2.2 (8 Dec 2001)
106    
107 azarah 81 10 Dec 2001; Added a localhost entry in /etc/hosts.
108    
109 woodchip 79 8 Dec 2001; Donny Davies (woodchip@gentoo.org): Added start-stop-daemon.c
110     to rc-scripts/sbin source. Moved rc-scripts/init.d/runscript.c to
111     rc-scripts/sbin/runscript.c. Added manpage for start-stop-daemon.
112     Start-stop-daemon is moved here from sysvinit by the way. There is stuff
113     in this ChangeLog that needs to be removed! Like the changes to hosts,
114     profile. /etc/{passwd,group} have minor UID and GID type fixes for
115 woodchip 80 users ftp, postgres, xfs. Tweaked tarball.sh to not include CVS
116     directories.
117 woodchip 79
118 woodchip 61 29 Nov 2001; Donny Davies (woodchip@gentoo.org): Added a man directory
119     to rc-scripts. Checked in two manpages there, one for modules.autoload.5
120 woodchip 63 and one for update-modules.8. These were adapted from Debian. Updated
121     tarball.sh to include the new man directory. Updated baselayout to install
122     these manpages. Slightly tweak the /etc/modules.autoload comments.
123 woodchip 61
124 drobbins 65 28 Nov 2001; Martin Schlemmer (azarah@gentoo.org): Updated /sbin/init
125     to work correctly with the 'gentoo=nodevfs' option, and cleaned
126     out old code.
127    
128     Updated /etc/init.d/bootmisc with additional lock files to clean.
129    
130     27 Nov 2001; Martin Schlemmer (azarah@gentoo.org): Updated
131     /etc/init.d/depscan.sh for a virtual 'use' depend, called 'logger'
132     that can be used for services that needs to have a logger started
133     before they are started. Updated /etc/conf.d/basic with $SYSLOGGER
134     that is used to define what loggers the 'logger' depend represent.
135    
136     26 Nov 2001; Martin Schlemmer (azarah@gentoo.org): Updated
137     /etc/passwd and /etc/group with minor fixes to pass pwck and grpck.
138    
139     25 Nov 2001; Martin Schlemmer (azarah@gentoo.org): Changed umask in
140     /etc/profile for the user to 077 for security.
141    
142     Added a stop() function to /etc/init.d/clock. Also removed uneeded
143     'source /etc/rc.conf' line.
144    
145     Updated /etc/init.d/hostname to set the hostname to 'localhost' if
146     /etc/hostname is invalid.
147    
148     Updated /sbin/init to move the entries in /lib/dev-state to /dev before
149     running devfsd, as it did still not save settings properly. Also removed
150     old /dev-state/compat stuff.
151    
152 drobbins 57 25 Nov 2001; ncsd, the name service cache daemon script, has been removed
153     from the default "default" runlevel. It still exists in the archive so that
154 drobbins 65 users who want/need it can add it easily.
155 drobbins 57
156 drobbins 56 25 Nov 2001; Updated the /etc/fstab; removed usbdevfs (explicitly mounted),
157 drobbins 65 removed notail from the ext2 boot partition, other cleanups.
158 drobbins 56
159 drobbins 55 25 Nov 2001; Fixed init.d/clock script to work in UTC mode.
160 drobbins 65
161     24 Nov 2001; Martin Schlemmer (azarah@gentoo.org): Added /etc/devfsd.conf
162     and updated /sbin/init to use a new scheme for saving /dev permissions.
163     Also moved /dev-state to /lib/dev-state which is a more standard location.
164    
165     Fixed a ugly bug in /etc/init.d/depscan.sh. If a service depended on
166     itself, calling depscan.sh or changing runlevels cause a tempory effect
167     similar to a 'mini fork bomb'. Afterwards the depends was broken, and
168     changing runlevels did not want to work.
169    
170     Updated /etc/init.d/halt.sh to terminate and display message for devfsd.
171     More cosmetic than anything else, but cant hurt with the new dev-state
172     scheme.
173    
174     Updated /sbin/init to set the console log level to 1, so that bootup
175     can be much cleaner. Also updated /etc/init.d/modules not to have
176     a logger in it 'use' depends, as it should not be needed anymore.
177    
178     Updated /sbin/rc to check if devfsd is still running between runlevel
179     changes.
180    
181     Updated /etc/init.d/modules to run update-modules. We want to be sure
182     /etc/modules.conf is updated when running depmod -a.
183    
184     Change ftp's uid to 21 in /etc/passwd (was the same as bind). Also
185     added a entry for xfs (X Font Server) in /etc/passwd and /etc/group.
186    
187     Added /etc/init.d/net.ppp0, /etc/conf.d/net.ppp0 and
188     /usr/lib/ppp/chat-default as part of my new pppd scripts. Also
189     updated tarball.sh to handle ppp/chat-default.
190    
191 azarah 91 Added /etc/skel/.bash* to make things cleaner.
192 drobbins 65
193 azarah 91 Other minor changes.
194 drobbins 65
195 woodchip 53 17 Nov 2001; Donny Davies (woodchip@gentoo.org): Added /etc/shells file
196     to rc-scripts. Can remove it from sys-libs/shadow at the next release.
197    
198 drobbins 51 * rc-scripts 1.1.8 (15 Nov 2001)
199    
200     16 Nov 2001; removed bogus "mountall.test" script.
201 drobbins 48
202 drobbins 51 15 Nov 2001; Martin Schlemmer (azarah@gentoo.org): Updated
203     init.d/{runscript.sh,depscan.sh}, sbin/rc to the new dep being 'use' not
204     'uses', as it fits better with 'need' (not 'needs'). Also removed unneeded
205     for loop from init.d/depscan.sh, and other fixes. Updated names of new
206     functions in init.d/runscript.sh to better sounding ones. Updated
207     init.d/modules, init.d/netmount to use 'use'. Lots of other fixes/cleanups.
208     Removed try() out of init.d/runscript.sh (why was this here ?).
209 drobbins 46
210 drobbins 51 14 Nov 2001; Martin Schlemmer (azarah@gentoo.org): init.d/bootmisc: Now
211 drobbins 65 cleans /tmp. Also creates /etc/resolv.conf if it doesn't exist.
212 drobbins 51
213 drobbins 65 init.d/hostname: Added check for a valid /etc/hostname.
214 drobbins 51
215 drobbins 65 init.d/keymaps: Added check for valid $KEYMAP.
216 drobbins 51
217 drobbins 65 init.d/modules: Added sysklogd, metalog, syslog-ng as 'use' deps. This
218     should solve Woodchip's syslog+glue issue. We just have to change the
219     console loglevel for metalog and syslog-ng (sysklogd already updated) not to
220     output info and warnings, etc to the console, then boot will be much cleaner.
221     Also the install guide will need changing to add the loggers to 'boot' and
222     not 'default' runlevel.
223 drobbins 51
224 drobbins 65 init.d/mountall.test: Hopefully updated to the new rc-scripts style. Is
225     this really needed (I cannot see that it is used anywhere ...)?
226 drobbins 51
227     13 Nov 2001; Martin Schlemmer (azarah@gentoo.org): Updated
228 drobbins 65 init.d/runscript.sh, init.d/depscan.sh and sbin/rc with a new depend called
229     'uses'. It basically have the same usage as 'need', except that it do not
230     start services that is not in the current and 'boot' runlevels.
231 drobbins 51
232 drobbins 65 Updated init.d/netmount to use the 'uses' depend.
233 drobbins 51
234     11 Nov 2001; Martin Schlemmer (azarah@gentoo.org): Fixed init.d/runscript.sh
235     not to destroy the 'need' depends in /${svcdir}/need. This caused subsequent
236     starting and stopping of services not to start depends.
237    
238     7 Nov 2001; Martin Schlemmer (azarah@gentoo.org): Fixed a problem in sbin/rc
239     where the ${svcdir}/softscripts directory got destroyed before stopping
240     running services scheduled to be stopped. This with the fact that $SOFTLEVEL
241     was set too early, caused the services to be stopped in the wrong order.
242    
243     30 Oct 2001; Martin Schlemmer (azarah@gentoo.org): Modified init.d/netmount to
244     check if any network filesystems is mounted.
245    
246     29 Oct 2001; init.d/netmount: umount -art doesn't seem to work, so I added
247     some awk and grep magic to find all remote filesystems and umount them.
248    
249     29 Oct 2001; Martin Schlemmer (azarah@gentoo.org): A fix for checkroot
250     (missing "/"); it now actually checks the root filesystem. Also, a
251     localmount cleanliness fix.
252    
253 drobbins 46 * rc-scripts 1.1.7 (18 Oct 2001)
254    
255     [old changelog format follows]
256    
257 drobbins 45 *lots of scripts; woodchip
258     removed old rc5 scripts from cvs
259    
260     *init.d/runscript.sh; agriffis
261     Added support for rc.conf and home-grown functions
262    
263     *init.d/modules;
264 drobbins 38 Now correctly looks at /etc/modules.autoload
265    
266 drobbins 36 rc-scripts-1.1.6, released 15 Sep 2001
267     ======================================
268    
269     *init.d/runscript.sh, others
270     Handling of "net" dependencies resolve to all net devices in
271     /etc/runlevels/boot and /etc/runlevels/[curr-runlevel]. INTERFACES
272     variable in /etc/rc.conf has been removed.
273    
274 drobbins 33 *init.d/runscript.sh
275     New "zap" option for manually resetting the state of an initscript
276     to stopped.
277    
278     *init.d/{samba,sysklogd,sshd}
279     Removed from CVS; they live in their respective packages.
280    
281 drobbins 28 rc-scripts-1.1.5, released 02 Sep 2001
282     ====================================
283    
284     *sbin/rc-update
285     New version of the rc-update command for the new initscripts. Works
286     similarly to the old version, except this one updates our dependency
287     cache.
288    
289     *init.d/functions.sh
290     New and better looking informational message functions (einfo, einfon).
291     Brand new message functions (ewarn).
292    
293     *sbin/init, init.d/checkroot
294     We're going back to a /proc/mounts-based mtab symlink because it's
295     just plain better. Appropriate changes made.
