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