5 azarah 124 15 Feb 2002: Martin Schlemmer (azarah@gentoo.org): update
6     /etc/profile to resolve bug #588.
7    
8     13 Feb 2002: Martin Schlemmer (azarah@gentoo.org): add some more
9     entries to /etc/devfsd.conf to make alsa users life easier ...
10     thanks Tod.
11    
12     12 Feb 2002: Martin Schlemmer (azarah@gentoo.org): Some more
13     cleanups to /etc/init.d/depscan.sh and /etc/init.d/runscript.sh.
14    
15     Fixed some services not starting again when restarting a service.
16     Seems simple is still the best way.
17    
18     Fixed some other problems created with feature additions and cleanups.
19    
20     11 Feb 2002: Martin Schlemmer (azarah@gentoo.org): General cleanups
21     to /etc/init.d/depscan.sh and /etc/init.d/runscript.sh.
22    
23     Added 'before *' to /etc/init.d/checkroot to make sure it gets
24     started first.
25    
26     Added 'use *' to /etc/init.d/local to make sure it gets started
27     last.
28    
29     10 Feb 2002: Martin Schlemmer (azarah@gentoo.org): Fixed /sbin/rc
30     to stop a service on change of runlevel if it is in 'use' by
31     another service.
32    
33     Added the 'provide' depend type for creating virtual services.
34     Updated /etc/init.d/depscan.sh for this.
35    
36     Added the 'before' depend type. This is more for changing the
37     order services start in. Updated /etc/init.d/depscan.sh and
38     /etc/init.d/functions.sh for this.
39    
40     Updated /etc/init.d/depscan.sh to work with '*' as argument for
41     dependancy types. This can be used with 'use' and 'before' to
42     start a script last or first respectively.
43    
44     Added save_options() and get_options() to /etc/init.d/functions.sh
45     for saving misc settings between startup/shutdown. Updated
46     /etc/init.d/net.eth0 to use these and properly down virtual
47     interfaces.
48    
49     6 Feb 2002: Martin Schlemmer (azarah@gentoo.org): updated both
50     /etc/init.d/bootmisc and /etc/init.d/keymaps to be quiet on no
51     errors.
52    
53     * rc-scripts 1.2.6 (6 Feb 2002)
54    
55 azarah 122 2 Feb 2002: Martin Schlemmer (azarah@gentoo.org): updated /etc/net.eth0
56     to specify the gateway device via the $gateway variable (something like
57     gateway="eth0/192.168.0.1").
58    
59 azarah 119 2 Feb 2002: Martin Schlemmer (azarah@gentoo.org): added rc-script
60     /etc/init.d/numlock, for enabling numlock at boot.
61    
62 azarah 117 29 Jan 2002: Martin Schlemmer (azarah@gentoo.org): hopefully the
63     last fix to /etc/init.d/netmount to umount cleanly. This fix
64     implements a retry if not successful the first time, and will
65     kill processess using the mount. Also small type-o fix to
66     /etc/init.d/halt.sh.
67    
68 woodchip 115 27 Jan 2002: Donny Davies (woodchip@gentoo.org): security fix to
69     /etc/pam.d/sshd,login,chsh: added pam_shells.so to the stack.
70     Fixed /etc/passwd,group for user/group mysql.
71    
72 azarah 113 27 Jan 2002: Martin Schlemmer (azarah@gentoo.org): added charset
73     map file support to /etc/init.d/consolefont and the setting to
74     /etc/rc.conf.
75    
76 azarah 112 25 Jan 2002: Martin Schlemmer (azarah@gentoo.org): fixed dircolors
77     in skel files to support both versions of dircolors.
78    
79 azarah 109 23 Jan 2002: Martin Schlemmer (azarah@gentoo.org): fixed bug
80 azarah 113 in the restart stuff of /etc/init.d/runscript.sh that caused
81     a restart of a 'net' service not to restart services again
82     that depended on it.
83 azarah 109
84 azarah 107 * rc-scripts 1.2.5 (20 Jan 2002)
85    
86 azarah 106 20 Jan 2002: Martin Schlemmer (azarah@gentoo.org): updated
87     /etc/init.d/net.eth0 to 'use' pcmcia.
88    
89 azarah 102 8 Jan 2002: Martin Schlemmer (azarah@gentoo.org): added '--sh' to
90     the dircolors command in /etc/skel/.bash_profile to handle cases
91     where bash do not export $SHELL.
92    
93     6 Jan 2002: Martin Schlemmer (azarah@gentoo.org): updated
94     /etc/init.d/runscripts.sh, /etc/init.d/net.eth0, /etc/conf.d/net and
95     removed /etc/init.d/net.eth0-dhcp to reflect a new 'bsd-ish' config
96     scheme for the net.eth* scripts.
97    
98 woodchip 100 6 Jan 2002: Donny Davies (woodchip@gentoo.org): Removed email address
99     from manpages; no need for that..
100    
101 azarah 102 5 Jan 2002: Martin Schlemmer (azarah@gentoo.org): fix type-o in
102     /etc/devfsd.conf; had 'dvd' in the cdrw stuff.
103    
104 drobbins 97 * rc-scripts 1.2.4 (30 Dec 2001)
105    
106     30 Dec 2001: Daniel Robbins (drobbins@gentoo.org): Changed default umask
107     back to 022 as it should be.
108    
109 azarah 96 30 Dec 2001; Martin Schlemmer (azarah@gentoo.org): Updated
110     /etc/init.d/checkfs to return 0 if the fs was successfully repaired.
111    
112 woodchip 95 29 Dec 2001; Donny Davies (woodchip@gentoo.org):
113     sort -t: -k3,3 -n /etc/passwd,group. Ahhhh :))
114    
115 azarah 93 28 Dec 2001; Martin Schlemmer (azarah@gentoo.org); Updated
116     /etc/init.d/depscan.sh to store info about missing dependancies of
117     type 'need' in ${svcdir}/broken. Also updated /etc/init.d/runscript.sh
118     to use this when starting a script ('need' dependancies is critical for
119     startup). Added the broken() function to /etc/init.d/runscript.sh
120     to list the missing dependancies.
121    
122     Updated /etc/init.d/runscript.sh for svc_start() to have better error
123     checking.
124    
125     Updated /etc/init.d/functions.sh with ewend(), which is the same as
126     eend(), but print a warning on error, not a error. Updated
127     /etc/init.d/checkroot and /etc/init.d/checkfs to use this function.
128    
129     27 Dec 2001; Martin Schlemmer (azarah@gentoo.org); Update /sbin/runscript.c
130     to run /etc/init.d/rc-help.sh if no arguments is passed to a rc-script.
131    
132     Added /etc/init.d/rc-help.sh, simple script that prints out help for
133     the rc-scripts.
134    
135 azarah 91 25 Dec 2001; Martin Schlemmer (azarah@gentoo.org); Update
136     /etc/init.d/shutdown.sh and /etc/init.d/reboot.sh not to force the
137     halt and reboot. This fixes a problem where / was not unmounted
138     properly in some cases.
139    
140     24 Dec 2001; Martin Schlemmer (azarah@gentoo.org): Move $svcdir to
141     to /etc/init.d/functions.sh, and update /etc/init.d/runscript.sh and
142     /etc/init.d/depscan.sh for this
143    
144     Modified /etc/init.d/runscript.sh to also restart the services that
145     depend on a service if that service is restarted. Enhanced the
146     restart function to be able to have custom restart() functions in
147     rc-scripts. The custom restart() have to use svc_stop() and
148     svc_start() to restart the service.
149    
150     Add a pause function to /etc/init.d/runscript.sh. It will basically
151     stop a service without stopping the services that depends on that
152     service.
153    
154 drobbins 97 Add a pause function to /etc/init.d/runscript.sh. It will basically stop a
155     service without stopping the services that depends on that service.
156    
157 azarah 91 * rc-scripts 1.2.3 (18 Dec 2001)
158    
159     16 Dec 2001; Martin Schlemmer (azarah@gentoo.org): Moved the stuff from
160     /sbin/init (old) to /sbin/rc (basically drop the init wrapper we used).
161    
162     Some cleanups: take out the shm resize comment;
163    
164     remove the $wrongmount;
165    
166     remove the mountshm() function and insert it directly
167     where needed;
168    
169     remove the setting of $PATH as /sbin/init already do
170     this for us.
171    
172     Added the if statement to detect if it is the first time the 'boot'
173     runlevel is executed (if [ "$RUNLEVEL" = "S" ] && [ "$argv1" = "boot" ]).
174     $RUNLEVEL is a env var set by /sbin/init.
175    
176     Also added functionality to detect if the kernel have DEVFS support
177     compiled in; seems new users thinks devfs is unstable and as they do
178     not always read the docs, it does not get compiled in ;/ Should
179     make live for us a bit easier.
180    
181     14 Dec 2001; Martin Schlemmer (azarah@gentoo.org): Fixed /sbin/rc to kill
182     a cosmetic bug in the part that stops all the unneeded services.
183    
184 woodchip 79 * rc-scripts 1.2.2 (8 Dec 2001)
185    
186 azarah 81 10 Dec 2001; Added a localhost entry in /etc/hosts.
187    
188 woodchip 79 8 Dec 2001; Donny Davies (woodchip@gentoo.org): Added start-stop-daemon.c
189     to rc-scripts/sbin source. Moved rc-scripts/init.d/runscript.c to
190     rc-scripts/sbin/runscript.c. Added manpage for start-stop-daemon.
191     Start-stop-daemon is moved here from sysvinit by the way. There is stuff
192     in this ChangeLog that needs to be removed! Like the changes to hosts,
193     profile. /etc/{passwd,group} have minor UID and GID type fixes for
194 woodchip 80 users ftp, postgres, xfs. Tweaked tarball.sh to not include CVS
195     directories.
196 woodchip 79
197 woodchip 61 29 Nov 2001; Donny Davies (woodchip@gentoo.org): Added a man directory
198     to rc-scripts. Checked in two manpages there, one for modules.autoload.5
199 woodchip 63 and one for update-modules.8. These were adapted from Debian. Updated
200     tarball.sh to include the new man directory. Updated baselayout to install
201     these manpages. Slightly tweak the /etc/modules.autoload comments.
202 woodchip 61
203 drobbins 65 28 Nov 2001; Martin Schlemmer (azarah@gentoo.org): Updated /sbin/init
204     to work correctly with the 'gentoo=nodevfs' option, and cleaned
205     out old code.
206    
207     Updated /etc/init.d/bootmisc with additional lock files to clean.
208    
209     27 Nov 2001; Martin Schlemmer (azarah@gentoo.org): Updated
210     /etc/init.d/depscan.sh for a virtual 'use' depend, called 'logger'
211     that can be used for services that needs to have a logger started
212     before they are started. Updated /etc/conf.d/basic with $SYSLOGGER
213     that is used to define what loggers the 'logger' depend represent.
214    
215     26 Nov 2001; Martin Schlemmer (azarah@gentoo.org): Updated
216     /etc/passwd and /etc/group with minor fixes to pass pwck and grpck.
217    
218     25 Nov 2001; Martin Schlemmer (azarah@gentoo.org): Changed umask in
219     /etc/profile for the user to 077 for security.
220    
221     Added a stop() function to /etc/init.d/clock. Also removed uneeded
222     'source /etc/rc.conf' line.
223    
224     Updated /etc/init.d/hostname to set the hostname to 'localhost' if
225     /etc/hostname is invalid.
226    
227     Updated /sbin/init to move the entries in /lib/dev-state to /dev before
228     running devfsd, as it did still not save settings properly. Also removed
229     old /dev-state/compat stuff.
230    
231 drobbins 57 25 Nov 2001; ncsd, the name service cache daemon script, has been removed
232     from the default "default" runlevel. It still exists in the archive so that
233 drobbins 65 users who want/need it can add it easily.
234 drobbins 57
235 drobbins 56 25 Nov 2001; Updated the /etc/fstab; removed usbdevfs (explicitly mounted),
236 drobbins 65 removed notail from the ext2 boot partition, other cleanups.
237 drobbins 56
238 drobbins 55 25 Nov 2001; Fixed init.d/clock script to work in UTC mode.
239 drobbins 65
240     24 Nov 2001; Martin Schlemmer (azarah@gentoo.org): Added /etc/devfsd.conf
241     and updated /sbin/init to use a new scheme for saving /dev permissions.
242     Also moved /dev-state to /lib/dev-state which is a more standard location.
243    
244     Fixed a ugly bug in /etc/init.d/depscan.sh. If a service depended on
245     itself, calling depscan.sh or changing runlevels cause a tempory effect
246     similar to a 'mini fork bomb'. Afterwards the depends was broken, and
247     changing runlevels did not want to work.
248    
249     Updated /etc/init.d/halt.sh to terminate and display message for devfsd.
250     More cosmetic than anything else, but cant hurt with the new dev-state
251     scheme.
252    
253     Updated /sbin/init to set the console log level to 1, so that bootup
254     can be much cleaner. Also updated /etc/init.d/modules not to have
255     a logger in it 'use' depends, as it should not be needed anymore.
256    
257     Updated /sbin/rc to check if devfsd is still running between runlevel
258     changes.
259    
260     Updated /etc/init.d/modules to run update-modules. We want to be sure
261     /etc/modules.conf is updated when running depmod -a.
262    
263     Change ftp's uid to 21 in /etc/passwd (was the same as bind). Also
264     added a entry for xfs (X Font Server) in /etc/passwd and /etc/group.
265    
266     Added /etc/init.d/net.ppp0, /etc/conf.d/net.ppp0 and
267     /usr/lib/ppp/chat-default as part of my new pppd scripts. Also
268     updated tarball.sh to handle ppp/chat-default.
269    
270 azarah 91 Added /etc/skel/.bash* to make things cleaner.
271 drobbins 65
272 azarah 91 Other minor changes.
273 drobbins 65
274 woodchip 53 17 Nov 2001; Donny Davies (woodchip@gentoo.org): Added /etc/shells file
275     to rc-scripts. Can remove it from sys-libs/shadow at the next release.
276    
277 drobbins 51 * rc-scripts 1.1.8 (15 Nov 2001)
278    
279     16 Nov 2001; removed bogus "mountall.test" script.
280 drobbins 48
281 drobbins 51 15 Nov 2001; Martin Schlemmer (azarah@gentoo.org): Updated
282     init.d/{runscript.sh,depscan.sh}, sbin/rc to the new dep being 'use' not
283     'uses', as it fits better with 'need' (not 'needs'). Also removed unneeded
284     for loop from init.d/depscan.sh, and other fixes. Updated names of new
285     functions in init.d/runscript.sh to better sounding ones. Updated
286     init.d/modules, init.d/netmount to use 'use'. Lots of other fixes/cleanups.
287     Removed try() out of init.d/runscript.sh (why was this here ?).
288 drobbins 46
289 drobbins 51 14 Nov 2001; Martin Schlemmer (azarah@gentoo.org): init.d/bootmisc: Now
290 drobbins 65 cleans /tmp. Also creates /etc/resolv.conf if it doesn't exist.
291 drobbins 51
292 drobbins 65 init.d/hostname: Added check for a valid /etc/hostname.
293 drobbins 51
294 drobbins 65 init.d/keymaps: Added check for valid $KEYMAP.
295 drobbins 51
296 drobbins 65 init.d/modules: Added sysklogd, metalog, syslog-ng as 'use' deps. This
297     should solve Woodchip's syslog+glue issue. We just have to change the
298     console loglevel for metalog and syslog-ng (sysklogd already updated) not to
299     output info and warnings, etc to the console, then boot will be much cleaner.
300     Also the install guide will need changing to add the loggers to 'boot' and
301     not 'default' runlevel.
302 drobbins 51
303 drobbins 65 init.d/mountall.test: Hopefully updated to the new rc-scripts style. Is
304     this really needed (I cannot see that it is used anywhere ...)?
305 drobbins 51
306     13 Nov 2001; Martin Schlemmer (azarah@gentoo.org): Updated
307 drobbins 65 init.d/runscript.sh, init.d/depscan.sh and sbin/rc with a new depend called
308     'uses'. It basically have the same usage as 'need', except that it do not
309     start services that is not in the current and 'boot' runlevels.
310 drobbins 51
311 drobbins 65 Updated init.d/netmount to use the 'uses' depend.
312 drobbins 51
313     11 Nov 2001; Martin Schlemmer (azarah@gentoo.org): Fixed init.d/runscript.sh
314     not to destroy the 'need' depends in /${svcdir}/need. This caused subsequent
315     starting and stopping of services not to start depends.
316    
317     7 Nov 2001; Martin Schlemmer (azarah@gentoo.org): Fixed a problem in sbin/rc
318     where the ${svcdir}/softscripts directory got destroyed before stopping
319     running services scheduled to be stopped. This with the fact that $SOFTLEVEL
320     was set too early, caused the services to be stopped in the wrong order.
321    
322     30 Oct 2001; Martin Schlemmer (azarah@gentoo.org): Modified init.d/netmount to
323     check if any network filesystems is mounted.
324    
325     29 Oct 2001; init.d/netmount: umount -art doesn't seem to work, so I added
326     some awk and grep magic to find all remote filesystems and umount them.
327    
328     29 Oct 2001; Martin Schlemmer (azarah@gentoo.org): A fix for checkroot
329     (missing "/"); it now actually checks the root filesystem. Also, a
330     localmount cleanliness fix.
331    
332 drobbins 46 * rc-scripts 1.1.7 (18 Oct 2001)
333    
334     [old changelog format follows]
335    
336 drobbins 45 *lots of scripts; woodchip
337     removed old rc5 scripts from cvs
338    
339     *init.d/runscript.sh; agriffis
340     Added support for rc.conf and home-grown functions
341    
342     *init.d/modules;
343 drobbins 38 Now correctly looks at /etc/modules.autoload
344    
345 drobbins 36 rc-scripts-1.1.6, released 15 Sep 2001
346     ======================================
347    
348     *init.d/runscript.sh, others
349     Handling of "net" dependencies resolve to all net devices in
350     /etc/runlevels/boot and /etc/runlevels/[curr-runlevel]. INTERFACES
351     variable in /etc/rc.conf has been removed.
352    
353 drobbins 33 *init.d/runscript.sh
354     New "zap" option for manually resetting the state of an initscript
355     to stopped.
356    
357     *init.d/{samba,sysklogd,sshd}
358     Removed from CVS; they live in their respective packages.
359    
360 drobbins 28 rc-scripts-1.1.5, released 02 Sep 2001
361     ====================================
362    
363     *sbin/rc-update
364     New version of the rc-update command for the new initscripts. Works
365     similarly to the old version, except this one updates our dependency
366     cache.
367    
368     *init.d/functions.sh
369     New and better looking informational message functions (einfo, einfon).
370     Brand new message functions (ewarn).
371    
372     *sbin/init, init.d/checkroot
373     We're going back to a /proc/mounts-based mtab symlink because it's
374     just plain better. Appropriate changes made.
