5 23 March 2002; Martin Schlemmer <azarah@gentoo.org>:
6
7 Resolve bug #1292.
8
9 Remove the extra 'depmod -a' in /etc/init.d/modules, thanks to
10 Spidler.
11
12 21 March 2002; Martin Schlemmer <azarah@gentoo.org>:
13
14 Update /sbin/rc to fix a 'cat mounts' instead of the correct
15 version, 'cat /proc/mounts'.
16
17 19 March 2002; Martin Schlemmer <azarah@gentoo.org>:
18
19 Add initial support for the --quiet flag that suppress output.
20
21 18 March 2002; Martin Schlemmer <azarah@gentoo.org>:
22
23 Remove the 'try' from 'try /etc/init.d/depscan.sh' in /sbin/rc
24 as not all errors by depscan.sh is critical. It should be
25 reworked to do better error handeling.
26
27 14 March 2002; Martin Schlemmer <azarah@gentoo.org>:
28
29 Fix the GID and UID of nobody and nogroup in /etc/passwd and
30 /etc/group to match those of Debian, FBSD and others. Thanks
31 to those who reported it, and Woodchip for looking up the
32 proper values.
33
34 Update /etc/init.d/net.eth0 to properly down DHCP interfaces.
35 This resolves bug #1150, thanks to Paul Fleischer.
36
37 11 March 2002; Martin Schlemmer <azarah@gentoo.org>:
38
39 Updated /etc/init.d/functions.sh not to use /usr/bin/basename,
40 as some users have /usr on seperate partition which is not
41 mounted when depscan.sh is run the first time.
42
43 Updated the checking for more than one service providing the
44 same virtual function in /etc/init.d/depscan.sh. It should
45 be working now, and this also fix a problem that when there is no
46 service providing a virtual, counter was used uninitialized.
47
48* rc-scripts 1.3.0 (10 March 2002)
49
50 10 March 2002; Martin Schlemmer <azarah@gentoo.org>: Resolved
51 bug #1021; updated /etc/init.d/consolefont for this.
52
53 Resolved bug #1029; updated /etc/init.d/net.eth0 for this.
54
55 Resolved bug #990; updated /etc/init.d/net.eth0, /etc/init.d/netmount
56 and /etc/init.d/localmount for this.
57
58 Lots of form/syntax cleanups, most things should be more
59 consistant now. Fixed fail detection/return values of lots of
60 scripts.
61
62 Lots of cleanup/fixes in the three main scripts behind our
63 rc-system, /sbin/rc, /etc/init.d/depscan.sh, /etc/init.d/runscript.sh
64
65 Fix a bug regarding a invalid $PATH for portage if /etc/init.d/functions.sh
66 is sourced in a ebuild.
67
68 Fix a bug that our rc-script wrapper introduced: Global variables
69 in scripts no longer worked. Updated /etc/init.d/runscript.sh for
70 this.
71
72 Implemented more error checking for the main startup code in /sbin/rc.
73 Also fixed try() for mounting /proc (maybe all mount commands).
74 The function worked fine in a simulated test, but in real life failed
75 to detect a error when mounting /proc (remember to thank Grant for
76 his UserMode ebuilds, and Guide).
77
78* rc-scripts 1.2.9 (6 March 2002)
79
80 6 March 2002; Martin Schlemmer <azarah@gentoo.org>: General form
81 updates and some piping fixes.
82
83 Updated /etc/inittab, /etc/init.d/xdm and /etc/X11/startDM.sh
84 to fix a problem where startDM.sh would be respawned repeatedly
85 if xdm was not in the default runlevel.
86
87* rc-scripts 1.2.8 (4 March 2002)
88
89 4 March 2002; Martin Schlemmer <azarah@gentoo.org>: add /etc/init.d/xdm,
90 /etc/X11/startDM.sh and updated /etc/inittab to fix the "dead key"
91 problem we had with xdm/gdm/kdm. We should move them to the
92 xfree ebuild later on when things settles down.
93
94 Added some sanity checks to /sbin/rc, /etc/init.d/runscripts.sh.
95
96 Added a basic $PATH to /etc/init.d/functions.sh to fix a problem
97 where we had a invalid $PATH on boot in some cases.
98
99 Updated /etc/init.d/keymap and /etc/init.d/consolefont to work with
100 the new sys-apps/kbd package.
101
102* rc-scripts 1.2.7 (3 March 2002)
103
104 3 March 2002; Martin Schlemmer <azarah@gentoo.org>: fixed the problem
105 of rc-scripts trying to start/stop a service multiple times if it
106 fails to do so. Updated /etc/init.d/runscript.sh and /sbin/rc for
107 this.
108
109 Fixing some variable declarations in /etc/init.d/runscript.sh caused
110 /etc/init.d/net.lo to fail on stop ($IFACE was set invalid). Fixed
111 this.
112
113 Added caching of the "depend() { need foo; } " lines, and updated
114 /etc/init.d/depscan.sh to touch the actual files less. This should
115 speedup dependancy caching a lot, especially on slow machines.
116
117 Updated /etc/passwd to have users with no shell defined, use /bin/false
118 for security.
119
120 Update /etc/fstab to mention /dev/shm since we dont mount it anymore.
121
122 1 March 2002; Martin Schlemmer <azarah@gentoo.org>: added a wrapper for
123 sourcing the rc-scripts to eliminate syntax errors. Thanks to
124 Karl Trygve Kalleberg (aka karltk) for the idea. Updated
125 /etc/init.d/depscan.sh, /etc/init.d/functions.sh and
126 /etc/init.d/runscript.sh for this (added wrap_rcscript() function).
127
128 Removed stopping of dependant services that have current service as
129 a 'use'dependancy ... should be less confusing now.
130 Updated /etc/init.d/runscript.sh for this.
131
132 28 Feb 2002; Martin Schlemmer <azarah@gentoo.org>: add /etc/conf.d/local.start
133 and /etc/conf.d/local.stop for adding any misc programs to startup. This
134 should pretty much have /etc/init.d/ static, except for baselayout updates,
135 etc.
136
137 27 Feb 2002; Martin Schlemmer <azarah@gentoo.org>: in some wierd cases,
138 a redundent /dev/.devfsd on a unmounted /dev can cause problems. Fixed
139 this in /sbin/rc.
140
141 Added the patches from Grant Goodyear (aka g2boojum) to enable us to
142 use a ramdisk to store the contents of ${svcdir}. Updated /sbin/rc,
143 /etc/init.d/functions.sh and /etc/init.d/checkroot for this.
144
145 26 Feb 2002; Martin Schlemmer <azarah@gentoo.org>: fix my brain dead
146 update of the 25th. It really should keep "gentoo=nodevfs" in mind.
147 Also added 'get_bootparam()' to help in retrieving kernel options.
148 Updated /etc/init.d/functions.sh, /etc/init.d/checkroot and /sbin/rc
149 for this.
150
151 Updated /etc/init.d/consolefont to work without devfs as well.
152
153 When rebooting or shutting down, a service should not fail to stop
154 if a service it depends on, fails. Updated /etc/init.d/runscript.sh
155 for this.
156
157 25 Feb 2002; Martin Schlemmer <azarah@gentoo.org>: added a check if
158 /dev is mounted when creating entries for /etc/mtab. This should solve a
159 invalid entry or /dev being mounted even with 'gentoo=nodevfs' option.
160 Updated /etc/init.d/checkroot for this.
161
162 17 Feb 2002: Daniel Robbins <drobbins@gentoo.org>: Made "xfs" the default
163 filesystem in /etc/fstab (from ReiserFS) and removed "notail" option (it's
164 just in a comment now)
165
166 17 Feb 2002: Martin Schlemmer (azarah@gentoo.org): more fixes to 'after' and
167 'before', updated /etc/init.d/runscript.sh for this. This should fix
168 services not getting started in the correct order in a tight loop, services
169 getting stopped out of order, and some other sanity checks. Updated
170 rc-script.sh for updated help.
171
172 15 Feb 2002: Martin Schlemmer (azarah@gentoo.org): update /etc/profile to
173 resolve bug #588. Reimplemented things a bit, and added the 'after' type.
174 'before' and 'after' will only work currently for a change of runlevel.
175 Updated /etc/init.d/depscan.sh, /etc/init.d/runscript.sh and /sbin/rc for it.
176
177 13 Feb 2002: Martin Schlemmer (azarah@gentoo.org): add some more entries to
178 /etc/devfsd.conf to make alsa users life easier ... thanks Tod.
179
180 12 Feb 2002: Martin Schlemmer (azarah@gentoo.org): Some more cleanups to
181 /etc/init.d/depscan.sh and /etc/init.d/runscript.sh.
182
183 Fixed some services not starting again when restarting a service.
184 Seems simple is still the best way.
185
186 Fixed some other problems created with feature additions and cleanups.
187
188 11 Feb 2002: Martin Schlemmer (azarah@gentoo.org): General cleanups to
189 /etc/init.d/depscan.sh and /etc/init.d/runscript.sh.
190
191 Added 'before *' to /etc/init.d/checkroot to make sure it gets
192 started first.
193
194 Added 'use *' to /etc/init.d/local to make sure it gets started
195 last.
196
197 10 Feb 2002: Martin Schlemmer (azarah@gentoo.org): Fixed /sbin/rc
198 to stop a service on change of runlevel if it is in 'use' by
199 another service.
200
201 Added the 'provide' depend type for creating virtual services.
202 Updated /etc/init.d/depscan.sh for this.
203
204 Added the 'before' depend type. This is more for changing the
205 order services start in. Updated /etc/init.d/depscan.sh and
206 /etc/init.d/functions.sh for this.
207
208 Updated /etc/init.d/depscan.sh to work with '*' as argument for
209 dependancy types. This can be used with 'use' and 'before' to
210 start a script last or first respectively.
211
212 Added save_options() and get_options() to /etc/init.d/functions.sh
213 for saving misc settings between startup/shutdown. Updated
214 /etc/init.d/net.eth0 to use these and properly down virtual
215 interfaces.
216
217 6 Feb 2002: Martin Schlemmer (azarah@gentoo.org): updated both
218 /etc/init.d/bootmisc and /etc/init.d/keymaps to be quiet on no
219 errors.
220
221* rc-scripts 1.2.6 (6 Feb 2002)
222
223 2 Feb 2002: Martin Schlemmer (azarah@gentoo.org): updated /etc/net.eth0
224 to specify the gateway device via the $gateway variable (something like
225 gateway="eth0/192.168.0.1").
226
227 2 Feb 2002: Martin Schlemmer (azarah@gentoo.org): added rc-script
228 /etc/init.d/numlock, for enabling numlock at boot.
229
230 29 Jan 2002: Martin Schlemmer (azarah@gentoo.org): hopefully the
231 last fix to /etc/init.d/netmount to umount cleanly. This fix
232 implements a retry if not successful the first time, and will
233 kill processess using the mount. Also small type-o fix to
234 /etc/init.d/halt.sh.
235
236 27 Jan 2002: Donny Davies (woodchip@gentoo.org): security fix to
237 /etc/pam.d/sshd,login,chsh: added pam_shells.so to the stack.
238 Fixed /etc/passwd,group for user/group mysql.
239
240 27 Jan 2002: Martin Schlemmer (azarah@gentoo.org): added charset
241 map file support to /etc/init.d/consolefont and the setting to
242 /etc/rc.conf.
243
244 25 Jan 2002: Martin Schlemmer (azarah@gentoo.org): fixed dircolors
245 in skel files to support both versions of dircolors.
246
247 23 Jan 2002: Martin Schlemmer (azarah@gentoo.org): fixed bug
248 in the restart stuff of /etc/init.d/runscript.sh that caused
249 a restart of a 'net' service not to restart services again
250 that depended on it.
251
252* rc-scripts 1.2.5 (20 Jan 2002)
253
254 20 Jan 2002: Martin Schlemmer (azarah@gentoo.org): updated
255 /etc/init.d/net.eth0 to 'use' pcmcia.
4 256
5 8 Jan 2002: Martin Schlemmer (azarah@gentoo.org): added '--sh' to 257 8 Jan 2002: Martin Schlemmer (azarah@gentoo.org): added '--sh' to
6 the dircolors command in /etc/skel/.bash_profile to handle cases 258 the dircolors command in /etc/skel/.bash_profile to handle cases
