5 8 Jan 2002: Martin Schlemmer (azarah@gentoo.org): added '--sh' to
6 the dircolors command in /etc/skel/.bash_profile to handle cases
7 where bash do not export $SHELL.
8
9 6 Jan 2002: Martin Schlemmer (azarah@gentoo.org): updated
10 /etc/init.d/runscripts.sh, /etc/init.d/net.eth0, /etc/conf.d/net and
11 removed /etc/init.d/net.eth0-dhcp to reflect a new 'bsd-ish' config
12 scheme for the net.eth* scripts.
13
14 6 Jan 2002: Donny Davies (woodchip@gentoo.org): Removed email address
15 from manpages; no need for that..
16
17 5 Jan 2002: Martin Schlemmer (azarah@gentoo.org): fix type-o in
18 /etc/devfsd.conf; had 'dvd' in the cdrw stuff.
19
20* rc-scripts 1.2.4 (30 Dec 2001)
21
22 30 Dec 2001: Daniel Robbins (drobbins@gentoo.org): Changed default umask
23 back to 022 as it should be.
24
25 30 Dec 2001; Martin Schlemmer (azarah@gentoo.org): Updated
26 /etc/init.d/checkfs to return 0 if the fs was successfully repaired.
27
28 29 Dec 2001; Donny Davies (woodchip@gentoo.org):
29 sort -t: -k3,3 -n /etc/passwd,group. Ahhhh :))
30
31 28 Dec 2001; Martin Schlemmer (azarah@gentoo.org); Updated
32 /etc/init.d/depscan.sh to store info about missing dependancies of
33 type 'need' in ${svcdir}/broken. Also updated /etc/init.d/runscript.sh
34 to use this when starting a script ('need' dependancies is critical for
35 startup). Added the broken() function to /etc/init.d/runscript.sh
36 to list the missing dependancies.
37
38 Updated /etc/init.d/runscript.sh for svc_start() to have better error
39 checking.
40
41 Updated /etc/init.d/functions.sh with ewend(), which is the same as
42 eend(), but print a warning on error, not a error. Updated
43 /etc/init.d/checkroot and /etc/init.d/checkfs to use this function.
44
45 27 Dec 2001; Martin Schlemmer (azarah@gentoo.org); Update /sbin/runscript.c
46 to run /etc/init.d/rc-help.sh if no arguments is passed to a rc-script.
47
48 Added /etc/init.d/rc-help.sh, simple script that prints out help for
49 the rc-scripts.
50
51 25 Dec 2001; Martin Schlemmer (azarah@gentoo.org); Update
52 /etc/init.d/shutdown.sh and /etc/init.d/reboot.sh not to force the
53 halt and reboot. This fixes a problem where / was not unmounted
54 properly in some cases.
55
56 24 Dec 2001; Martin Schlemmer (azarah@gentoo.org): Move $svcdir to
57 to /etc/init.d/functions.sh, and update /etc/init.d/runscript.sh and
58 /etc/init.d/depscan.sh for this
59
60 Modified /etc/init.d/runscript.sh to also restart the services that
61 depend on a service if that service is restarted. Enhanced the
62 restart function to be able to have custom restart() functions in
63 rc-scripts. The custom restart() have to use svc_stop() and
64 svc_start() to restart the service.
65
66 Add a pause function to /etc/init.d/runscript.sh. It will basically
67 stop a service without stopping the services that depends on that
68 service.
69
70 Add a pause function to /etc/init.d/runscript.sh. It will basically stop a
71 service without stopping the services that depends on that service.
72
73* rc-scripts 1.2.3 (18 Dec 2001)
74
75 16 Dec 2001; Martin Schlemmer (azarah@gentoo.org): Moved the stuff from
76 /sbin/init (old) to /sbin/rc (basically drop the init wrapper we used).
77
78 Some cleanups: take out the shm resize comment;
79
80 remove the $wrongmount;
81
82 remove the mountshm() function and insert it directly
83 where needed;
84
85 remove the setting of $PATH as /sbin/init already do
86 this for us.
87
88 Added the if statement to detect if it is the first time the 'boot'
89 runlevel is executed (if [ "$RUNLEVEL" = "S" ] && [ "$argv1" = "boot" ]).
90 $RUNLEVEL is a env var set by /sbin/init.
91
92 Also added functionality to detect if the kernel have DEVFS support
93 compiled in; seems new users thinks devfs is unstable and as they do
94 not always read the docs, it does not get compiled in ;/ Should
95 make live for us a bit easier.
96
97 14 Dec 2001; Martin Schlemmer (azarah@gentoo.org): Fixed /sbin/rc to kill
98 a cosmetic bug in the part that stops all the unneeded services.
4 99

33 /etc/init.d/depscan.sh for a virtual 'use' depend, called 'logger' 126 /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 127 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 128 before they are started. Updated /etc/conf.d/basic with $SYSLOGGER
36 that is used to define what loggers the 'logger' depend represent. 129 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.

41 /etc/passwd and /etc/group with minor fixes to pass pwck and grpck. 132 /etc/passwd and /etc/group with minor fixes to pass pwck and grpck.
42 133
43 25 Nov 2001; Martin Schlemmer (azarah@gentoo.org): Changed umask in 134 25 Nov 2001; Martin Schlemmer (azarah@gentoo.org): Changed umask in
44 /etc/profile for the user to 077 for security. 135 /etc/profile for the user to 077 for security.
45 136
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 137 Added a stop() function to /etc/init.d/clock. Also removed uneeded
51 'source /etc/rc.conf' line. 138 'source /etc/rc.conf' line.
52 139
53 Updated /etc/init.d/hostname to set the hostname to 'localhost' if 140 Updated /etc/init.d/hostname to set the hostname to 'localhost' if
54 /etc/hostname is invalid. 141 /etc/hostname is invalid.

57 142
58 Updated /sbin/init to move the entries in /lib/dev-state to /dev before 143 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 144 running devfsd, as it did still not save settings properly. Also removed
60 old /dev-state/compat stuff. 145 old /dev-state/compat stuff.
61 146
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 25 Nov 2001; ncsd, the name service cache daemon script, has been removed 147 25 Nov 2001; ncsd, the name service cache daemon script, has been removed

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.
