5* rc-scripts 1.2.8 (4 March 2002)
6
7 4 March 2002; Martin Schlemmer <azarah@gentoo.org>: add /etc/init.d/xdm,
8 /etc/X11/startDM.sh and updated /etc/inittab to fix the "dead key"
9 problem we had with xdm/gdm/kdm. We should move them to the
10 xfree ebuild later on when things settles down.
11
12 Added some sanity checks to /sbin/rc, /etc/init.d/runscripts.sh.
13
14 Added a basic $PATH to /etc/init.d/functions.sh to fix a problem
15 where we had a invalid $PATH on boot in some cases.
16
17* rc-scripts 1.2.7 (3 March 2002)
18
19 3 March 2002; Martin Schlemmer <azarah@gentoo.org>: fixed the problem
20 of rc-scripts trying to start/stop a service multiple times if it
21 fails to do so. Updated /etc/init.d/runscript.sh and /sbin/rc for
22 this.
23
24 Fixing some variable declarations in /etc/init.d/runscript.sh caused
25 /etc/init.d/net.lo to fail on stop ($IFACE was set invalid). Fixed
26 this.
27
28 Added caching of the "depend() { need foo; } " lines, and updated
29 /etc/init.d/depscan.sh to touch the actual files less. This should
30 speedup dependancy caching a lot, especially on slow machines.
31
32 Updated /etc/passwd to have users with no shell defined, use /bin/false
33 for security.
34
35 Update /etc/fstab to mention /dev/shm since we dont mount it anymore.
36
37 1 March 2002; Martin Schlemmer <azarah@gentoo.org>: added a wrapper for
38 sourcing the rc-scripts to eliminate syntax errors. Thanks to
39 Karl Trygve Kalleberg (aka karltk) for the idea. Updated
40 /etc/init.d/depscan.sh, /etc/init.d/functions.sh and
41 /etc/init.d/runscript.sh for this (added wrap_rcscript() function).
42
43 Removed stopping of dependant services that have current service as
44 a 'use'dependancy ... should be less confusing now.
45 Updated /etc/init.d/runscript.sh for this.
46
47 28 Feb 2002; Martin Schlemmer <azarah@gentoo.org>: add /etc/conf.d/local.start
48 and /etc/conf.d/local.stop for adding any misc programs to startup. This
49 should pretty much have /etc/init.d/ static, except for baselayout updates,
50 etc.
51
52 27 Feb 2002; Martin Schlemmer <azarah@gentoo.org>: in some wierd cases,
53 a redundent /dev/.devfsd on a unmounted /dev can cause problems. Fixed
54 this in /sbin/rc.
55
56 Added the patches from Grant Goodyear (aka g2boojum) to enable us to
57 use a ramdisk to store the contents of ${svcdir}. Updated /sbin/rc,
58 /etc/init.d/functions.sh and /etc/init.d/checkroot for this.
59
60 26 Feb 2002; Martin Schlemmer <azarah@gentoo.org>: fix my brain dead
61 update of the 25th. It really should keep "gentoo=nodevfs" in mind.
62 Also added 'get_bootparam()' to help in retrieving kernel options.
63 Updated /etc/init.d/functions.sh, /etc/init.d/checkroot and /sbin/rc
64 for this.
65
66 Updated /etc/init.d/consolefont to work without devfs as well.
67
68 When rebooting or shutting down, a service should not fail to stop
69 if a service it depends on, fails. Updated /etc/init.d/runscript.sh
70 for this.
71
72 25 Feb 2002; Martin Schlemmer <azarah@gentoo.org>: added a check if
73 /dev is mounted when creating entries for /etc/mtab. This should solve a
74 invalid entry or /dev being mounted even with 'gentoo=nodevfs' option.
75 Updated /etc/init.d/checkroot for this.
76
77 17 Feb 2002: Daniel Robbins <drobbins@gentoo.org>: Made "xfs" the default
78 filesystem in /etc/fstab (from ReiserFS) and removed "notail" option (it's
79 just in a comment now)
80
81 17 Feb 2002: Martin Schlemmer (azarah@gentoo.org): more fixes to 'after' and
82 'before', updated /etc/init.d/runscript.sh for this. This should fix
83 services not getting started in the correct order in a tight loop, services
84 getting stopped out of order, and some other sanity checks. Updated
85 rc-script.sh for updated help.
86
87 15 Feb 2002: Martin Schlemmer (azarah@gentoo.org): update /etc/profile to
88 resolve bug #588. Reimplemented things a bit, and added the 'after' type.
89 'before' and 'after' will only work currently for a change of runlevel.
90 Updated /etc/init.d/depscan.sh, /etc/init.d/runscript.sh and /sbin/rc for it.
91
92 13 Feb 2002: Martin Schlemmer (azarah@gentoo.org): add some more entries to
93 /etc/devfsd.conf to make alsa users life easier ... thanks Tod.
94
95 12 Feb 2002: Martin Schlemmer (azarah@gentoo.org): Some more cleanups to
96 /etc/init.d/depscan.sh and /etc/init.d/runscript.sh.
97
98 Fixed some services not starting again when restarting a service.
99 Seems simple is still the best way.
100
101 Fixed some other problems created with feature additions and cleanups.
102
103 11 Feb 2002: Martin Schlemmer (azarah@gentoo.org): General cleanups to
104 /etc/init.d/depscan.sh and /etc/init.d/runscript.sh.
105
106 Added 'before *' to /etc/init.d/checkroot to make sure it gets
107 started first.
108
109 Added 'use *' to /etc/init.d/local to make sure it gets started
110 last.
111
112 10 Feb 2002: Martin Schlemmer (azarah@gentoo.org): Fixed /sbin/rc
113 to stop a service on change of runlevel if it is in 'use' by
114 another service.
115
116 Added the 'provide' depend type for creating virtual services.
117 Updated /etc/init.d/depscan.sh for this.
118
119 Added the 'before' depend type. This is more for changing the
120 order services start in. Updated /etc/init.d/depscan.sh and
121 /etc/init.d/functions.sh for this.
122
123 Updated /etc/init.d/depscan.sh to work with '*' as argument for
124 dependancy types. This can be used with 'use' and 'before' to
125 start a script last or first respectively.
126
127 Added save_options() and get_options() to /etc/init.d/functions.sh
128 for saving misc settings between startup/shutdown. Updated
129 /etc/init.d/net.eth0 to use these and properly down virtual
130 interfaces.
131
132 6 Feb 2002: Martin Schlemmer (azarah@gentoo.org): updated both
133 /etc/init.d/bootmisc and /etc/init.d/keymaps to be quiet on no
134 errors.
135
136* rc-scripts 1.2.6 (6 Feb 2002)
137
138 2 Feb 2002: Martin Schlemmer (azarah@gentoo.org): updated /etc/net.eth0
139 to specify the gateway device via the $gateway variable (something like
140 gateway="eth0/192.168.0.1").
141
142 2 Feb 2002: Martin Schlemmer (azarah@gentoo.org): added rc-script
143 /etc/init.d/numlock, for enabling numlock at boot.
144
145 29 Jan 2002: Martin Schlemmer (azarah@gentoo.org): hopefully the
146 last fix to /etc/init.d/netmount to umount cleanly. This fix
147 implements a retry if not successful the first time, and will
148 kill processess using the mount. Also small type-o fix to
149 /etc/init.d/halt.sh.
150
151 27 Jan 2002: Donny Davies (woodchip@gentoo.org): security fix to
152 /etc/pam.d/sshd,login,chsh: added pam_shells.so to the stack.
153 Fixed /etc/passwd,group for user/group mysql.
154
155 27 Jan 2002: Martin Schlemmer (azarah@gentoo.org): added charset
156 map file support to /etc/init.d/consolefont and the setting to
157 /etc/rc.conf.
158
159 25 Jan 2002: Martin Schlemmer (azarah@gentoo.org): fixed dircolors
160 in skel files to support both versions of dircolors.
161
162 23 Jan 2002: Martin Schlemmer (azarah@gentoo.org): fixed bug
163 in the restart stuff of /etc/init.d/runscript.sh that caused
164 a restart of a 'net' service not to restart services again
165 that depended on it.
166
167* rc-scripts 1.2.5 (20 Jan 2002)
168
169 20 Jan 2002: Martin Schlemmer (azarah@gentoo.org): updated
170 /etc/init.d/net.eth0 to 'use' pcmcia.
4 171
5 8 Jan 2002: Martin Schlemmer (azarah@gentoo.org): added '--sh' to 172 8 Jan 2002: Martin Schlemmer (azarah@gentoo.org): added '--sh' to
6 the dircolors command in /etc/skel/.bash_profile to handle cases 173 the dircolors command in /etc/skel/.bash_profile to handle cases
