6 azarah 124 15 Feb 2002: Martin Schlemmer (azarah@gentoo.org): update
7 azarah 125 /etc/profile to resolve bug #588.
8 azarah 124
9 azarah 125 Reimplemented things a bit, and added the 'after' type. 'before'
10     and 'after' will only work currently for a change of runlevel.
11     Updated /etc/init.d/depscan.sh, /etc/init.d/runscript.sh and
12     /sbin/rc for it.
13    
14 azarah 124 13 Feb 2002: Martin Schlemmer (azarah@gentoo.org): add some more
15     entries to /etc/devfsd.conf to make alsa users life easier ...
16     thanks Tod.
17    
18     12 Feb 2002: Martin Schlemmer (azarah@gentoo.org): Some more
19     cleanups to /etc/init.d/depscan.sh and /etc/init.d/runscript.sh.
20    
21     Fixed some services not starting again when restarting a service.
22     Seems simple is still the best way.
23    
24     Fixed some other problems created with feature additions and cleanups.
25    
26     11 Feb 2002: Martin Schlemmer (azarah@gentoo.org): General cleanups
27     to /etc/init.d/depscan.sh and /etc/init.d/runscript.sh.
28    
29     Added 'before *' to /etc/init.d/checkroot to make sure it gets
30     started first.
31    
32     Added 'use *' to /etc/init.d/local to make sure it gets started
33     last.
34    
35     10 Feb 2002: Martin Schlemmer (azarah@gentoo.org): Fixed /sbin/rc
36     to stop a service on change of runlevel if it is in 'use' by
37     another service.
38    
39     Added the 'provide' depend type for creating virtual services.
40     Updated /etc/init.d/depscan.sh for this.
41    
42     Added the 'before' depend type. This is more for changing the
43     order services start in. Updated /etc/init.d/depscan.sh and
44     /etc/init.d/functions.sh for this.
45    
46     Updated /etc/init.d/depscan.sh to work with '*' as argument for
47     dependancy types. This can be used with 'use' and 'before' to
48     start a script last or first respectively.
49    
50     Added save_options() and get_options() to /etc/init.d/functions.sh
51     for saving misc settings between startup/shutdown. Updated
52     /etc/init.d/net.eth0 to use these and properly down virtual
53     interfaces.
54    
55     6 Feb 2002: Martin Schlemmer (azarah@gentoo.org): updated both
56     /etc/init.d/bootmisc and /etc/init.d/keymaps to be quiet on no
57     errors.
58    
59     * rc-scripts 1.2.6 (6 Feb 2002)
60    
61 azarah 122 2 Feb 2002: Martin Schlemmer (azarah@gentoo.org): updated /etc/net.eth0
62     to specify the gateway device via the $gateway variable (something like
63     gateway="eth0/192.168.0.1").
64    
65 azarah 119 2 Feb 2002: Martin Schlemmer (azarah@gentoo.org): added rc-script
66     /etc/init.d/numlock, for enabling numlock at boot.
67    
68 azarah 117 29 Jan 2002: Martin Schlemmer (azarah@gentoo.org): hopefully the
69     last fix to /etc/init.d/netmount to umount cleanly. This fix
70     implements a retry if not successful the first time, and will
71     kill processess using the mount. Also small type-o fix to
72     /etc/init.d/halt.sh.
73    
74 woodchip 115 27 Jan 2002: Donny Davies (woodchip@gentoo.org): security fix to
75     /etc/pam.d/sshd,login,chsh: added pam_shells.so to the stack.
76     Fixed /etc/passwd,group for user/group mysql.
77    
78 azarah 113 27 Jan 2002: Martin Schlemmer (azarah@gentoo.org): added charset
79     map file support to /etc/init.d/consolefont and the setting to
80     /etc/rc.conf.
81    
82 azarah 112 25 Jan 2002: Martin Schlemmer (azarah@gentoo.org): fixed dircolors
83     in skel files to support both versions of dircolors.
84    
85 azarah 109 23 Jan 2002: Martin Schlemmer (azarah@gentoo.org): fixed bug
86 azarah 113 in the restart stuff of /etc/init.d/runscript.sh that caused
87     a restart of a 'net' service not to restart services again
88     that depended on it.
89 azarah 109
90 azarah 107 * rc-scripts 1.2.5 (20 Jan 2002)
91    
92 azarah 106 20 Jan 2002: Martin Schlemmer (azarah@gentoo.org): updated
93     /etc/init.d/net.eth0 to 'use' pcmcia.
94    
95 azarah 102 8 Jan 2002: Martin Schlemmer (azarah@gentoo.org): added '--sh' to
96     the dircolors command in /etc/skel/.bash_profile to handle cases
97     where bash do not export $SHELL.
98    
99     6 Jan 2002: Martin Schlemmer (azarah@gentoo.org): updated
100     /etc/init.d/runscripts.sh, /etc/init.d/net.eth0, /etc/conf.d/net and
101     removed /etc/init.d/net.eth0-dhcp to reflect a new 'bsd-ish' config
102     scheme for the net.eth* scripts.
103    
104 woodchip 100 6 Jan 2002: Donny Davies (woodchip@gentoo.org): Removed email address
105     from manpages; no need for that..
106    
107 azarah 102 5 Jan 2002: Martin Schlemmer (azarah@gentoo.org): fix type-o in
108     /etc/devfsd.conf; had 'dvd' in the cdrw stuff.
109    
110 drobbins 97 * rc-scripts 1.2.4 (30 Dec 2001)
111    
112     30 Dec 2001: Daniel Robbins (drobbins@gentoo.org): Changed default umask
113     back to 022 as it should be.
114    
115 azarah 96 30 Dec 2001; Martin Schlemmer (azarah@gentoo.org): Updated
116     /etc/init.d/checkfs to return 0 if the fs was successfully repaired.
117    
118 woodchip 95 29 Dec 2001; Donny Davies (woodchip@gentoo.org):
119     sort -t: -k3,3 -n /etc/passwd,group. Ahhhh :))
120    
121 azarah 93 28 Dec 2001; Martin Schlemmer (azarah@gentoo.org); Updated
122     /etc/init.d/depscan.sh to store info about missing dependancies of
123     type 'need' in ${svcdir}/broken. Also updated /etc/init.d/runscript.sh
124     to use this when starting a script ('need' dependancies is critical for
125     startup). Added the broken() function to /etc/init.d/runscript.sh
126     to list the missing dependancies.
127    
128     Updated /etc/init.d/runscript.sh for svc_start() to have better error
129     checking.
130    
131     Updated /etc/init.d/functions.sh with ewend(), which is the same as
132     eend(), but print a warning on error, not a error. Updated
133     /etc/init.d/checkroot and /etc/init.d/checkfs to use this function.
134    
135     27 Dec 2001; Martin Schlemmer (azarah@gentoo.org); Update /sbin/runscript.c
136     to run /etc/init.d/rc-help.sh if no arguments is passed to a rc-script.
137    
138     Added /etc/init.d/rc-help.sh, simple script that prints out help for
139     the rc-scripts.
140    
141 azarah 91 25 Dec 2001; Martin Schlemmer (azarah@gentoo.org); Update
142     /etc/init.d/shutdown.sh and /etc/init.d/reboot.sh not to force the
143     halt and reboot. This fixes a problem where / was not unmounted
144     properly in some cases.
145    
146     24 Dec 2001; Martin Schlemmer (azarah@gentoo.org): Move $svcdir to
147     to /etc/init.d/functions.sh, and update /etc/init.d/runscript.sh and
148     /etc/init.d/depscan.sh for this
149    
150     Modified /etc/init.d/runscript.sh to also restart the services that
151     depend on a service if that service is restarted. Enhanced the
152     restart function to be able to have custom restart() functions in
153     rc-scripts. The custom restart() have to use svc_stop() and
154     svc_start() to restart the service.
155    
156     Add a pause function to /etc/init.d/runscript.sh. It will basically
157     stop a service without stopping the services that depends on that
158     service.
159    
160 drobbins 97 Add a pause function to /etc/init.d/runscript.sh. It will basically stop a
161     service without stopping the services that depends on that service.
162    
163 azarah 91 * rc-scripts 1.2.3 (18 Dec 2001)
164    
165     16 Dec 2001; Martin Schlemmer (azarah@gentoo.org): Moved the stuff from
166     /sbin/init (old) to /sbin/rc (basically drop the init wrapper we used).
167    
168     Some cleanups: take out the shm resize comment;
169    
170     remove the $wrongmount;
171    
172     remove the mountshm() function and insert it directly
173     where needed;
174    
175     remove the setting of $PATH as /sbin/init already do
176     this for us.
177    
178     Added the if statement to detect if it is the first time the 'boot'
179     runlevel is executed (if [ "$RUNLEVEL" = "S" ] && [ "$argv1" = "boot" ]).
180     $RUNLEVEL is a env var set by /sbin/init.
181    
182     Also added functionality to detect if the kernel have DEVFS support
183     compiled in; seems new users thinks devfs is unstable and as they do
184     not always read the docs, it does not get compiled in ;/ Should
185     make live for us a bit easier.
186    
187     14 Dec 2001; Martin Schlemmer (azarah@gentoo.org): Fixed /sbin/rc to kill
188     a cosmetic bug in the part that stops all the unneeded services.
189    
190 woodchip 79 * rc-scripts 1.2.2 (8 Dec 2001)
191    
192 azarah 81 10 Dec 2001; Added a localhost entry in /etc/hosts.
193    
194 woodchip 79 8 Dec 2001; Donny Davies (woodchip@gentoo.org): Added start-stop-daemon.c
195     to rc-scripts/sbin source. Moved rc-scripts/init.d/runscript.c to
196     rc-scripts/sbin/runscript.c. Added manpage for start-stop-daemon.
197     Start-stop-daemon is moved here from sysvinit by the way. There is stuff
198     in this ChangeLog that needs to be removed! Like the changes to hosts,
199     profile. /etc/{passwd,group} have minor UID and GID type fixes for
200 woodchip 80 users ftp, postgres, xfs. Tweaked tarball.sh to not include CVS
201     directories.
202 woodchip 79
203 woodchip 61 29 Nov 2001; Donny Davies (woodchip@gentoo.org): Added a man directory
204     to rc-scripts. Checked in two manpages there, one for modules.autoload.5
205 woodchip 63 and one for update-modules.8. These were adapted from Debian. Updated
206     tarball.sh to include the new man directory. Updated baselayout to install
207     these manpages. Slightly tweak the /etc/modules.autoload comments.
208 woodchip 61
209 drobbins 65 28 Nov 2001; Martin Schlemmer (azarah@gentoo.org): Updated /sbin/init
210     to work correctly with the 'gentoo=nodevfs' option, and cleaned
211     out old code.
212    
213     Updated /etc/init.d/bootmisc with additional lock files to clean.
214    
215     27 Nov 2001; Martin Schlemmer (azarah@gentoo.org): Updated
216     /etc/init.d/depscan.sh for a virtual 'use' depend, called 'logger'
217     that can be used for services that needs to have a logger started
218     before they are started. Updated /etc/conf.d/basic with $SYSLOGGER
219     that is used to define what loggers the 'logger' depend represent.
220    
221     26 Nov 2001; Martin Schlemmer (azarah@gentoo.org): Updated
222     /etc/passwd and /etc/group with minor fixes to pass pwck and grpck.
223    
224     25 Nov 2001; Martin Schlemmer (azarah@gentoo.org): Changed umask in
225     /etc/profile for the user to 077 for security.
226    
227     Added a stop() function to /etc/init.d/clock. Also removed uneeded
228     'source /etc/rc.conf' line.
229    
230     Updated /etc/init.d/hostname to set the hostname to 'localhost' if
231     /etc/hostname is invalid.
232    
233     Updated /sbin/init to move the entries in /lib/dev-state to /dev before
234     running devfsd, as it did still not save settings properly. Also removed
235     old /dev-state/compat stuff.
236    
237 drobbins 57 25 Nov 2001; ncsd, the name service cache daemon script, has been removed
238     from the default "default" runlevel. It still exists in the archive so that
239 drobbins 65 users who want/need it can add it easily.
240 drobbins 57
241 drobbins 56 25 Nov 2001; Updated the /etc/fstab; removed usbdevfs (explicitly mounted),
242 drobbins 65 removed notail from the ext2 boot partition, other cleanups.
243 drobbins 56
244 drobbins 55 25 Nov 2001; Fixed init.d/clock script to work in UTC mode.
245 drobbins 65
246     24 Nov 2001; Martin Schlemmer (azarah@gentoo.org): Added /etc/devfsd.conf
247     and updated /sbin/init to use a new scheme for saving /dev permissions.
248     Also moved /dev-state to /lib/dev-state which is a more standard location.
249    
250     Fixed a ugly bug in /etc/init.d/depscan.sh. If a service depended on
251     itself, calling depscan.sh or changing runlevels cause a tempory effect
252     similar to a 'mini fork bomb'. Afterwards the depends was broken, and
253     changing runlevels did not want to work.
254    
255     Updated /etc/init.d/halt.sh to terminate and display message for devfsd.
256     More cosmetic than anything else, but cant hurt with the new dev-state
257     scheme.
258    
259     Updated /sbin/init to set the console log level to 1, so that bootup
260     can be much cleaner. Also updated /etc/init.d/modules not to have
261     a logger in it 'use' depends, as it should not be needed anymore.
262    
263     Updated /sbin/rc to check if devfsd is still running between runlevel
264     changes.
265    
266     Updated /etc/init.d/modules to run update-modules. We want to be sure
267     /etc/modules.conf is updated when running depmod -a.
268    
269     Change ftp's uid to 21 in /etc/passwd (was the same as bind). Also
270     added a entry for xfs (X Font Server) in /etc/passwd and /etc/group.
271    
272     Added /etc/init.d/net.ppp0, /etc/conf.d/net.ppp0 and
273     /usr/lib/ppp/chat-default as part of my new pppd scripts. Also
274     updated tarball.sh to handle ppp/chat-default.
275    
276 azarah 91 Added /etc/skel/.bash* to make things cleaner.
277 drobbins 65
278 azarah 91 Other minor changes.
279 drobbins 65
280 woodchip 53 17 Nov 2001; Donny Davies (woodchip@gentoo.org): Added /etc/shells file
281     to rc-scripts. Can remove it from sys-libs/shadow at the next release.
282    
283 drobbins 51 * rc-scripts 1.1.8 (15 Nov 2001)
284    
285     16 Nov 2001; removed bogus "mountall.test" script.
286 drobbins 48
287 drobbins 51 15 Nov 2001; Martin Schlemmer (azarah@gentoo.org): Updated
288     init.d/{runscript.sh,depscan.sh}, sbin/rc to the new dep being 'use' not
289     'uses', as it fits better with 'need' (not 'needs'). Also removed unneeded
290     for loop from init.d/depscan.sh, and other fixes. Updated names of new
291     functions in init.d/runscript.sh to better sounding ones. Updated
292     init.d/modules, init.d/netmount to use 'use'. Lots of other fixes/cleanups.
293     Removed try() out of init.d/runscript.sh (why was this here ?).
294 drobbins 46
295 drobbins 51 14 Nov 2001; Martin Schlemmer (azarah@gentoo.org): init.d/bootmisc: Now
296 drobbins 65 cleans /tmp. Also creates /etc/resolv.conf if it doesn't exist.
297 drobbins 51
298 drobbins 65 init.d/hostname: Added check for a valid /etc/hostname.
299 drobbins 51
300 drobbins 65 init.d/keymaps: Added check for valid $KEYMAP.
301 drobbins 51
302 drobbins 65 init.d/modules: Added sysklogd, metalog, syslog-ng as 'use' deps. This
303     should solve Woodchip's syslog+glue issue. We just have to change the
304     console loglevel for metalog and syslog-ng (sysklogd already updated) not to
305     output info and warnings, etc to the console, then boot will be much cleaner.
306     Also the install guide will need changing to add the loggers to 'boot' and
307     not 'default' runlevel.
308 drobbins 51
309 drobbins 65 init.d/mountall.test: Hopefully updated to the new rc-scripts style. Is
310     this really needed (I cannot see that it is used anywhere ...)?
311 drobbins 51
312     13 Nov 2001; Martin Schlemmer (azarah@gentoo.org): Updated
313 drobbins 65 init.d/runscript.sh, init.d/depscan.sh and sbin/rc with a new depend called
314     'uses'. It basically have the same usage as 'need', except that it do not
315     start services that is not in the current and 'boot' runlevels.
316 drobbins 51
317 drobbins 65 Updated init.d/netmount to use the 'uses' depend.
318 drobbins 51
319     11 Nov 2001; Martin Schlemmer (azarah@gentoo.org): Fixed init.d/runscript.sh
320     not to destroy the 'need' depends in /${svcdir}/need. This caused subsequent
321     starting and stopping of services not to start depends.
322    
323     7 Nov 2001; Martin Schlemmer (azarah@gentoo.org): Fixed a problem in sbin/rc
324     where the ${svcdir}/softscripts directory got destroyed before stopping
325     running services scheduled to be stopped. This with the fact that $SOFTLEVEL
326     was set too early, caused the services to be stopped in the wrong order.
327    
328     30 Oct 2001; Martin Schlemmer (azarah@gentoo.org): Modified init.d/netmount to
329     check if any network filesystems is mounted.
330    
331     29 Oct 2001; init.d/netmount: umount -art doesn't seem to work, so I added
332     some awk and grep magic to find all remote filesystems and umount them.
333    
334     29 Oct 2001; Martin Schlemmer (azarah@gentoo.org): A fix for checkroot
335     (missing "/"); it now actually checks the root filesystem. Also, a
336     localmount cleanliness fix.
337    
338 drobbins 46 * rc-scripts 1.1.7 (18 Oct 2001)
339    
340     [old changelog format follows]
341    
342 drobbins 45 *lots of scripts; woodchip
343     removed old rc5 scripts from cvs
344    
345     *init.d/runscript.sh; agriffis
346     Added support for rc.conf and home-grown functions
347    
348     *init.d/modules;
349 drobbins 38 Now correctly looks at /etc/modules.autoload
350    
351 drobbins 36 rc-scripts-1.1.6, released 15 Sep 2001
352     ======================================
353    
354     *init.d/runscript.sh, others
355     Handling of "net" dependencies resolve to all net devices in
356     /etc/runlevels/boot and /etc/runlevels/[curr-runlevel]. INTERFACES
357     variable in /etc/rc.conf has been removed.
358    
359 drobbins 33 *init.d/runscript.sh
360     New "zap" option for manually resetting the state of an initscript
361     to stopped.
362    
363     *init.d/{samba,sysklogd,sshd}
364     Removed from CVS; they live in their respective packages.
365    
366 drobbins 28 rc-scripts-1.1.5, released 02 Sep 2001
367     ====================================
368    
369     *sbin/rc-update
370     New version of the rc-update command for the new initscripts. Works
371     similarly to the old version, except this one updates our dependency
372     cache.
373    
374     *init.d/functions.sh
375     New and better looking informational message functions (einfo, einfon).
376     Brand new message functions (ewarn).
377    
378     *sbin/init, init.d/checkroot
379     We're going back to a /proc/mounts-based mtab symlink because it's
380     just plain better. Appropriate changes made.
