4
5 19 March 2002; Martin Schlemmer <azarah@gentoo.org>:
6
7 Add initial support for the --quiet flag that suppress output.
8
9 18 March 2002; Martin Schlemmer <azarah@gentoo.org>:
10
11 Remove the 'try' from 'try /etc/init.d/depscan.sh' in /sbin/rc
12 as not all errors by depscan.sh is critical. It should be
13 reworked to do better error handeling.
14
15 14 March 2002; Martin Schlemmer <azarah@gentoo.org>:
16
17 Fix the GID and UID of nobody and nogroup in /etc/passwd and
18 /etc/group to match those of Debian, FBSD and others. Thanks
19 to those who reported it, and Woodchip for looking up the
20 proper values.
21
22 Update /etc/init.d/net.eth0 to properly down DHCP interfaces.
23 This resolves bug #1150, thanks to Paul Fleischer.
24
25 11 March 2002; Martin Schlemmer <azarah@gentoo.org>:
26
27 Updated /etc/init.d/functions.sh not to use /usr/bin/basename,
28 as some users have /usr on seperate partition which is not
29 mounted when depscan.sh is run the first time.
30
31 Updated the checking for more than one service providing the
32 same virtual function in /etc/init.d/depscan.sh. It should
33 be working now, and this also fix a problem that when there is no
34 service providing a virtual, counter was used uninitialized.
35
36* rc-scripts 1.3.0 (10 March 2002)
37
38 10 March 2002; Martin Schlemmer <azarah@gentoo.org>: Resolved
39 bug #1021; updated /etc/init.d/consolefont for this.
40
41 Resolved bug #1029; updated /etc/init.d/net.eth0 for this.
42
43 Resolved bug #990; updated /etc/init.d/net.eth0, /etc/init.d/netmount
44 and /etc/init.d/localmount for this.
45
46 Lots of form/syntax cleanups, most things should be more
47 consistant now. Fixed fail detection/return values of lots of
48 scripts.
49
50 Lots of cleanup/fixes in the three main scripts behind our
51 rc-system, /sbin/rc, /etc/init.d/depscan.sh, /etc/init.d/runscript.sh
52
53 Fix a bug regarding a invalid $PATH for portage if /etc/init.d/functions.sh
54 is sourced in a ebuild.
55
56 Fix a bug that our rc-script wrapper introduced: Global variables
57 in scripts no longer worked. Updated /etc/init.d/runscript.sh for
58 this.
59
60 Implemented more error checking for the main startup code in /sbin/rc.
61 Also fixed try() for mounting /proc (maybe all mount commands).
62 The function worked fine in a simulated test, but in real life failed
63 to detect a error when mounting /proc (remember to thank Grant for
64 his UserMode ebuilds, and Guide).
65
66* rc-scripts 1.2.9 (6 March 2002)
67
68 6 March 2002; Martin Schlemmer <azarah@gentoo.org>: General form
69 updates and some piping fixes.
70
71 Updated /etc/inittab, /etc/init.d/xdm and /etc/X11/startDM.sh
72 to fix a problem where startDM.sh would be respawned repeatedly
73 if xdm was not in the default runlevel.
74
75* rc-scripts 1.2.8 (4 March 2002)
76
77 4 March 2002; Martin Schlemmer <azarah@gentoo.org>: add /etc/init.d/xdm,
78 /etc/X11/startDM.sh and updated /etc/inittab to fix the "dead key"
79 problem we had with xdm/gdm/kdm. We should move them to the
80 xfree ebuild later on when things settles down.
81
82 Added some sanity checks to /sbin/rc, /etc/init.d/runscripts.sh.
83
84 Added a basic $PATH to /etc/init.d/functions.sh to fix a problem
85 where we had a invalid $PATH on boot in some cases.
86
87 Updated /etc/init.d/keymap and /etc/init.d/consolefont to work with
88 the new sys-apps/kbd package.
89
90* rc-scripts 1.2.7 (3 March 2002)
91
92 3 March 2002; Martin Schlemmer <azarah@gentoo.org>: fixed the problem
93 of rc-scripts trying to start/stop a service multiple times if it
94 fails to do so. Updated /etc/init.d/runscript.sh and /sbin/rc for
95 this.
96
97 Fixing some variable declarations in /etc/init.d/runscript.sh caused
98 /etc/init.d/net.lo to fail on stop ($IFACE was set invalid). Fixed
99 this.
100
101 Added caching of the "depend() { need foo; } " lines, and updated
102 /etc/init.d/depscan.sh to touch the actual files less. This should
103 speedup dependancy caching a lot, especially on slow machines.
104
105 Updated /etc/passwd to have users with no shell defined, use /bin/false
106 for security.
107
108 Update /etc/fstab to mention /dev/shm since we dont mount it anymore.
109
110 1 March 2002; Martin Schlemmer <azarah@gentoo.org>: added a wrapper for
111 sourcing the rc-scripts to eliminate syntax errors. Thanks to
112 Karl Trygve Kalleberg (aka karltk) for the idea. Updated
113 /etc/init.d/depscan.sh, /etc/init.d/functions.sh and
114 /etc/init.d/runscript.sh for this (added wrap_rcscript() function).
115
116 Removed stopping of dependant services that have current service as
117 a 'use'dependancy ... should be less confusing now.
118 Updated /etc/init.d/runscript.sh for this.
119
120 28 Feb 2002; Martin Schlemmer <azarah@gentoo.org>: add /etc/conf.d/local.start
121 and /etc/conf.d/local.stop for adding any misc programs to startup. This
122 should pretty much have /etc/init.d/ static, except for baselayout updates,
123 etc.
124
125 27 Feb 2002; Martin Schlemmer <azarah@gentoo.org>: in some wierd cases,
126 a redundent /dev/.devfsd on a unmounted /dev can cause problems. Fixed
127 this in /sbin/rc.
128
129 Added the patches from Grant Goodyear (aka g2boojum) to enable us to
130 use a ramdisk to store the contents of ${svcdir}. Updated /sbin/rc,
131 /etc/init.d/functions.sh and /etc/init.d/checkroot for this.
132
133 26 Feb 2002; Martin Schlemmer <azarah@gentoo.org>: fix my brain dead
134 update of the 25th. It really should keep "gentoo=nodevfs" in mind.
135 Also added 'get_bootparam()' to help in retrieving kernel options.
136 Updated /etc/init.d/functions.sh, /etc/init.d/checkroot and /sbin/rc
137 for this.
138
139 Updated /etc/init.d/consolefont to work without devfs as well.
140
141 When rebooting or shutting down, a service should not fail to stop
142 if a service it depends on, fails. Updated /etc/init.d/runscript.sh
143 for this.
144
145 25 Feb 2002; Martin Schlemmer <azarah@gentoo.org>: added a check if
146 /dev is mounted when creating entries for /etc/mtab. This should solve a
147 invalid entry or /dev being mounted even with 'gentoo=nodevfs' option.
148 Updated /etc/init.d/checkroot for this.
149
150 17 Feb 2002: Daniel Robbins <drobbins@gentoo.org>: Made "xfs" the default
151 filesystem in /etc/fstab (from ReiserFS) and removed "notail" option (it's
152 just in a comment now)
153
154 17 Feb 2002: Martin Schlemmer (azarah@gentoo.org): more fixes to 'after' and
155 'before', updated /etc/init.d/runscript.sh for this. This should fix
156 services not getting started in the correct order in a tight loop, services
157 getting stopped out of order, and some other sanity checks. Updated
158 rc-script.sh for updated help.
159
160 15 Feb 2002: Martin Schlemmer (azarah@gentoo.org): update /etc/profile to
161 resolve bug #588. Reimplemented things a bit, and added the 'after' type.
162 'before' and 'after' will only work currently for a change of runlevel.
163 Updated /etc/init.d/depscan.sh, /etc/init.d/runscript.sh and /sbin/rc for it.
164
165 13 Feb 2002: Martin Schlemmer (azarah@gentoo.org): add some more entries to
166 /etc/devfsd.conf to make alsa users life easier ... thanks Tod.
167
168 12 Feb 2002: Martin Schlemmer (azarah@gentoo.org): Some more cleanups to
169 /etc/init.d/depscan.sh and /etc/init.d/runscript.sh.
170
171 Fixed some services not starting again when restarting a service.
172 Seems simple is still the best way.
173
174 Fixed some other problems created with feature additions and cleanups.
175
176 11 Feb 2002: Martin Schlemmer (azarah@gentoo.org): General cleanups to
177 /etc/init.d/depscan.sh and /etc/init.d/runscript.sh.
178
179 Added 'before *' to /etc/init.d/checkroot to make sure it gets
180 started first.
181
182 Added 'use *' to /etc/init.d/local to make sure it gets started
183 last.
184
185 10 Feb 2002: Martin Schlemmer (azarah@gentoo.org): Fixed /sbin/rc
186 to stop a service on change of runlevel if it is in 'use' by
187 another service.
188
189 Added the 'provide' depend type for creating virtual services.
190 Updated /etc/init.d/depscan.sh for this.
191
192 Added the 'before' depend type. This is more for changing the
193 order services start in. Updated /etc/init.d/depscan.sh and
194 /etc/init.d/functions.sh for this.
195
196 Updated /etc/init.d/depscan.sh to work with '*' as argument for
197 dependancy types. This can be used with 'use' and 'before' to
198 start a script last or first respectively.
199
200 Added save_options() and get_options() to /etc/init.d/functions.sh
201 for saving misc settings between startup/shutdown. Updated
202 /etc/init.d/net.eth0 to use these and properly down virtual
203 interfaces.
204
205 6 Feb 2002: Martin Schlemmer (azarah@gentoo.org): updated both
206 /etc/init.d/bootmisc and /etc/init.d/keymaps to be quiet on no
207 errors.
208
209* rc-scripts 1.2.6 (6 Feb 2002)
210
211 2 Feb 2002: Martin Schlemmer (azarah@gentoo.org): updated /etc/net.eth0
212 to specify the gateway device via the $gateway variable (something like
213 gateway="eth0/192.168.0.1").
214
215 2 Feb 2002: Martin Schlemmer (azarah@gentoo.org): added rc-script
216 /etc/init.d/numlock, for enabling numlock at boot.
217
218 29 Jan 2002: Martin Schlemmer (azarah@gentoo.org): hopefully the
219 last fix to /etc/init.d/netmount to umount cleanly. This fix
220 implements a retry if not successful the first time, and will
221 kill processess using the mount. Also small type-o fix to
222 /etc/init.d/halt.sh.
223
224 27 Jan 2002: Donny Davies (woodchip@gentoo.org): security fix to
225 /etc/pam.d/sshd,login,chsh: added pam_shells.so to the stack.
226 Fixed /etc/passwd,group for user/group mysql.
227
228 27 Jan 2002: Martin Schlemmer (azarah@gentoo.org): added charset
229 map file support to /etc/init.d/consolefont and the setting to
230 /etc/rc.conf.
231
232 25 Jan 2002: Martin Schlemmer (azarah@gentoo.org): fixed dircolors
233 in skel files to support both versions of dircolors.
234
235 23 Jan 2002: Martin Schlemmer (azarah@gentoo.org): fixed bug
236 in the restart stuff of /etc/init.d/runscript.sh that caused
237 a restart of a 'net' service not to restart services again
238 that depended on it.
239
240* rc-scripts 1.2.5 (20 Jan 2002)
241
242 20 Jan 2002: Martin Schlemmer (azarah@gentoo.org): updated
243 /etc/init.d/net.eth0 to 'use' pcmcia.
4 244
5 8 Jan 2002: Martin Schlemmer (azarah@gentoo.org): added '--sh' to 245 8 Jan 2002: Martin Schlemmer (azarah@gentoo.org): added '--sh' to
6 the dircolors command in /etc/skel/.bash_profile to handle cases 246 the dircolors command in /etc/skel/.bash_profile to handle cases
