5 woodchip 79 * rc-scripts 1.2.2 (8 Dec 2001)
6    
7 azarah 81 10 Dec 2001; Added a localhost entry in /etc/hosts.
8    
9 woodchip 79 8 Dec 2001; Donny Davies (woodchip@gentoo.org): Added start-stop-daemon.c
10     to rc-scripts/sbin source. Moved rc-scripts/init.d/runscript.c to
11     rc-scripts/sbin/runscript.c. Added manpage for start-stop-daemon.
12     Start-stop-daemon is moved here from sysvinit by the way. There is stuff
13     in this ChangeLog that needs to be removed! Like the changes to hosts,
14     profile. /etc/{passwd,group} have minor UID and GID type fixes for
15 woodchip 80 users ftp, postgres, xfs. Tweaked tarball.sh to not include CVS
16     directories.
17 woodchip 79
18 woodchip 61 29 Nov 2001; Donny Davies (woodchip@gentoo.org): Added a man directory
19     to rc-scripts. Checked in two manpages there, one for modules.autoload.5
20 woodchip 63 and one for update-modules.8. These were adapted from Debian. Updated
21     tarball.sh to include the new man directory. Updated baselayout to install
22     these manpages. Slightly tweak the /etc/modules.autoload comments.
23 woodchip 61
24 drobbins 65 28 Nov 2001; Martin Schlemmer (azarah@gentoo.org): Updated /sbin/init
25     to work correctly with the 'gentoo=nodevfs' option, and cleaned
26     out old code.
27    
28     Updated /etc/init.d/bootmisc with additional lock files to clean.
29    
30 azarah 81 Updated /etc/init.d/hdparm to check if devfs is uddsed.
31 drobbins 65
32     27 Nov 2001; Martin Schlemmer (azarah@gentoo.org): Updated
33     /etc/init.d/depscan.sh for a virtual 'use' depend, called 'logger'
34     that can be used for services that needs to have a logger started
35     before they are started. Updated /etc/conf.d/basic with $SYSLOGGER
36     that is used to define what loggers the 'logger' depend represent.
37     Also updated /etc/init.d/hdparm and /etc/init.d/modules to use
38     this new depend.
39    
40     26 Nov 2001; Martin Schlemmer (azarah@gentoo.org): Updated
41     /etc/passwd and /etc/group with minor fixes to pass pwck and grpck.
42    
43     25 Nov 2001; Martin Schlemmer (azarah@gentoo.org): Changed umask in
44     /etc/profile for the user to 077 for security.
45    
46     Added a localhost line to /etc/hosts after yet another post to gentoo-user.
47     I cant see any problem with this, and since nobody else wants to take the
48     plunge ....
49    
50     Added a stop() function to /etc/init.d/clock. Also removed uneeded
51     'source /etc/rc.conf' line.
52    
53     Updated /etc/init.d/hostname to set the hostname to 'localhost' if
54     /etc/hostname is invalid.
55    
56     Updated /etc/init.d/hdparm to display a [ok] for each drive it optimizes.
57    
58     Updated /sbin/init to move the entries in /lib/dev-state to /dev before
59     running devfsd, as it did still not save settings properly. Also removed
60     old /dev-state/compat stuff.
61    
62     Removed a stupid bug out of /sbin/init ... /lib/dev-state/* was moved
63     to /dev *before* /dev was mounted.
64    
65     Seems the .keep files in /lib/dev-state/pts and /lib/dev-state/shm
66     caused /sbin/init to lock while moving /lib/dev-state/* to /dev. Added
67     the needed fixes to the baselayout ebuild.
68    
69     On second thoughts, removed the 'try' out of the code that moves
70     /lib/dev-state/* to /dev, since this is not a critical task, and
71     booting will still continue on failure.
72    
73 drobbins 57 25 Nov 2001; ncsd, the name service cache daemon script, has been removed
74     from the default "default" runlevel. It still exists in the archive so that
75 drobbins 65 users who want/need it can add it easily.
76 drobbins 57
77 drobbins 56 25 Nov 2001; Updated the /etc/fstab; removed usbdevfs (explicitly mounted),
78 drobbins 65 removed notail from the ext2 boot partition, other cleanups.
79 drobbins 56
80 drobbins 55 25 Nov 2001; Fixed init.d/clock script to work in UTC mode.
81 drobbins 65
82     24 Nov 2001; Martin Schlemmer (azarah@gentoo.org): Added /etc/devfsd.conf
83     and updated /sbin/init to use a new scheme for saving /dev permissions.
84     Also moved /dev-state to /lib/dev-state which is a more standard location.
85    
86     Added /etc/conf.d and moved rc.conf there as /etc/conf.d/basic. Created
87     /etc/rc.conf again as a blank file .. the website should be updated to
88     say that the user should look in /etc/conf.d/* for stuff to configure.
89    
90     Added /etc/init.d/hdparm and /etc/conf.d/hdparm; a script and config
91     file for setting generic optimizations for the disk drives.
92    
93     Fixed a ugly bug in /etc/init.d/depscan.sh. If a service depended on
94     itself, calling depscan.sh or changing runlevels cause a tempory effect
95     similar to a 'mini fork bomb'. Afterwards the depends was broken, and
96     changing runlevels did not want to work.
97    
98     Updated /etc/init.d/halt.sh to terminate and display message for devfsd.
99     More cosmetic than anything else, but cant hurt with the new dev-state
100     scheme.
101    
102     Removed config stuff from /etc/init.d/net.eth0, and moved it to
103     /etc/conf.d/net.eth0. Also added a comment to this effect.
104    
105     Removed config stuff from /etc/init.d/net.eth0-dhcp, and moved it to
106     /etc/conf.d/net.eth0-dhcp. Also added a comment to this effect.
107    
108     Updated gentoo-src/rc-scripts/rc-lists/default to add /etc/init.d/hdparm
109     to the default runlevel.
110    
111     Updated /sbin/init to set the console log level to 1, so that bootup
112     can be much cleaner. Also updated /etc/init.d/modules not to have
113     a logger in it 'use' depends, as it should not be needed anymore.
114    
115     Updated /sbin/rc to check if devfsd is still running between runlevel
116     changes.
117    
118     Updated /etc/init.d/modules to run update-modules. We want to be sure
119     /etc/modules.conf is updated when running depmod -a.
120    
121     Change ftp's uid to 21 in /etc/passwd (was the same as bind). Also
122     added a entry for xfs (X Font Server) in /etc/passwd and /etc/group.
123    
124     Added /etc/init.d/net.ppp0, /etc/conf.d/net.ppp0 and
125     /usr/lib/ppp/chat-default as part of my new pppd scripts. Also
126     updated tarball.sh to handle ppp/chat-default.
127    
128     Added /etc/skel/.bash* to make things cleaner and set $INPUTRC.
129    
130     Minor changes I forgot about.
131    
132 woodchip 53 17 Nov 2001; Donny Davies (woodchip@gentoo.org): Added /etc/shells file
133     to rc-scripts. Can remove it from sys-libs/shadow at the next release.
134    
135 drobbins 51 * rc-scripts 1.1.8 (15 Nov 2001)
136    
137     16 Nov 2001; removed bogus "mountall.test" script.
138 drobbins 48
139 drobbins 51 15 Nov 2001; Martin Schlemmer (azarah@gentoo.org): Updated
140     init.d/{runscript.sh,depscan.sh}, sbin/rc to the new dep being 'use' not
141     'uses', as it fits better with 'need' (not 'needs'). Also removed unneeded
142     for loop from init.d/depscan.sh, and other fixes. Updated names of new
143     functions in init.d/runscript.sh to better sounding ones. Updated
144     init.d/modules, init.d/netmount to use 'use'. Lots of other fixes/cleanups.
145     Removed try() out of init.d/runscript.sh (why was this here ?).
146 drobbins 46
147 drobbins 51 14 Nov 2001; Martin Schlemmer (azarah@gentoo.org): init.d/bootmisc: Now
148 drobbins 65 cleans /tmp. Also creates /etc/resolv.conf if it doesn't exist.
149 drobbins 51
150 drobbins 65 init.d/hostname: Added check for a valid /etc/hostname.
151 drobbins 51
152 drobbins 65 init.d/keymaps: Added check for valid $KEYMAP.
153 drobbins 51
154 drobbins 65 init.d/modules: Added sysklogd, metalog, syslog-ng as 'use' deps. This
155     should solve Woodchip's syslog+glue issue. We just have to change the
156     console loglevel for metalog and syslog-ng (sysklogd already updated) not to
157     output info and warnings, etc to the console, then boot will be much cleaner.
158     Also the install guide will need changing to add the loggers to 'boot' and
159     not 'default' runlevel.
160 drobbins 51
161 drobbins 65 init.d/mountall.test: Hopefully updated to the new rc-scripts style. Is
162     this really needed (I cannot see that it is used anywhere ...)?
163 drobbins 51
164     13 Nov 2001; Martin Schlemmer (azarah@gentoo.org): Updated
165 drobbins 65 init.d/runscript.sh, init.d/depscan.sh and sbin/rc with a new depend called
166     'uses'. It basically have the same usage as 'need', except that it do not
167     start services that is not in the current and 'boot' runlevels.
168 drobbins 51
169 drobbins 65 Updated init.d/netmount to use the 'uses' depend.
170 drobbins 51
171     11 Nov 2001; Martin Schlemmer (azarah@gentoo.org): Fixed init.d/runscript.sh
172     not to destroy the 'need' depends in /${svcdir}/need. This caused subsequent
173     starting and stopping of services not to start depends.
174    
175     7 Nov 2001; Martin Schlemmer (azarah@gentoo.org): Fixed a problem in sbin/rc
176     where the ${svcdir}/softscripts directory got destroyed before stopping
177     running services scheduled to be stopped. This with the fact that $SOFTLEVEL
178     was set too early, caused the services to be stopped in the wrong order.
179    
180     30 Oct 2001; Martin Schlemmer (azarah@gentoo.org): Modified init.d/netmount to
181     check if any network filesystems is mounted.
182    
183     29 Oct 2001; init.d/netmount: umount -art doesn't seem to work, so I added
184     some awk and grep magic to find all remote filesystems and umount them.
185    
186     29 Oct 2001; Martin Schlemmer (azarah@gentoo.org): A fix for checkroot
187     (missing "/"); it now actually checks the root filesystem. Also, a
188     localmount cleanliness fix.
189    
190 drobbins 46 * rc-scripts 1.1.7 (18 Oct 2001)
191    
192     [old changelog format follows]

194 drobbins 45 *lots of scripts; woodchip
195     removed old rc5 scripts from cvs
196    
197     *init.d/runscript.sh; agriffis
198     Added support for rc.conf and home-grown functions

200     *init.d/modules;
201 drobbins 38 Now correctly looks at /etc/modules.autoload
202    
203 drobbins 36 rc-scripts-1.1.6, released 15 Sep 2001
204     ======================================
205    
206     *init.d/runscript.sh, others
207     Handling of "net" dependencies resolve to all net devices in
208     /etc/runlevels/boot and /etc/runlevels/[curr-runlevel]. INTERFACES
209     variable in /etc/rc.conf has been removed.
210    
211 drobbins 33 *init.d/runscript.sh
212     New "zap" option for manually resetting the state of an initscript
213     to stopped.

216     Removed from CVS; they live in their respective packages.
217    
218 drobbins 28 rc-scripts-1.1.5, released 02 Sep 2001
219     ====================================
220    
221     *sbin/rc-update
222     New version of the rc-update command for the new initscripts. Works
223     similarly to the old version, except this one updates our dependency
224     cache.
225    
226     *init.d/functions.sh
227     New and better looking informational message functions (einfo, einfon).
228     Brand new message functions (ewarn).
229    
230     *sbin/init, init.d/checkroot
231     We're going back to a /proc/mounts-based mtab symlink because it's
232     just plain better. Appropriate changes made.
