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

384     11 Nov 2001; Martin Schlemmer (azarah@gentoo.org): Fixed init.d/runscript.sh
385     not to destroy the 'need' depends in /${svcdir}/need. This caused subsequent
386     starting and stopping of services not to start depends.
387    
388     7 Nov 2001; Martin Schlemmer (azarah@gentoo.org): Fixed a problem in sbin/rc
389     where the ${svcdir}/softscripts directory got destroyed before stopping
390     running services scheduled to be stopped. This with the fact that $SOFTLEVEL
391     was set too early, caused the services to be stopped in the wrong order.
392    
393     30 Oct 2001; Martin Schlemmer (azarah@gentoo.org): Modified init.d/netmount to
394     check if any network filesystems is mounted.
395    
396     29 Oct 2001; init.d/netmount: umount -art doesn't seem to work, so I added
397     some awk and grep magic to find all remote filesystems and umount them.
398    
399     29 Oct 2001; Martin Schlemmer (azarah@gentoo.org): A fix for checkroot
400     (missing "/"); it now actually checks the root filesystem. Also, a
401     localmount cleanliness fix.
