5 12 April 2002; Martin Schlemmer <azarah@gentoo.org>:
6
7 Update /etc/init.d/bootmisc to create /var/run/utmpx. This
8 is needed, else /usr/bin/newgrp segfault.
9
10 11 April 2002; Martin Schlemmer <azarah@gentoo.org>:
11
12 Update /etc/skel/.bash_profile to make it tcsh compadible.
13 Thanks to Väinö Järvelä for this fix.
14
15 Update /etc/profile to also set the PS? variables if $SHELL
16 is set to /bin/sh. This should make prompt colours in
17 bootstrap work again.
18
19 Move LVM stuff to checkfs to ensure that they get fscked.
20 This resolves bug #1552.
21
22* rc-scripts 1.3.3 (5 April 2002)
23
24 5 April 2002; Martin Schlemmer <azarah@gentoo.org>:
25
26 Move /etc/init.d/{depscan.sh,runscript.sh,functions.sh} to /sbin.
27 This is done to try and ensure system integrity.
28
29 1 April 2002; Martin Schlemmer <azarah@gentoo.org>:
30
31 Add quotes to the "export INPUTRC=/etc/inputrc" line to resolve bug #1391.
32
33 Add a error message to /etc/init.d/consolefont, resolving bug #1415.
34
35 Add a bash check to the code that sets the prompt, fixing bug #1078.
36
37* rc-scripts 1.3.2 (24 Mar 2002)
38
39 24 March 2002; Martin Schlemmer <azarah@gentoo.org>:
40
41 Resolve bug #1274. Updated /etc/init.d/hostname and /etc/init.d/bootmisc
42 for this.
43
44 With the "before" and "after" stuff, recursion levels was getting too high,
45 and with some cases, things just plain did not work as it should. Reworked
46 things to to lower the levels of recursion and get the order right. Updated
47 /etc/init.d/runscript.sh for this.
48
49 Fixed a problem in /sbin/rc and /etc/init.d/runscript.sh where
50 ${svcdir}/softlevel did not always exist, but runscript.sh tried to open it.
51
52 Enhance --quiet support. Updated /etc/init.d/functions.sh for this.
53
54 Remove /etc/pwdb.conf, as pwdb already install a copy of this.
55
56 Remove /etc/pam.d/{rexec,rlogin,rsh} as pam already install this.
57
58 Added $INPUTRC to /etc/profile, since too many people keep on bugging me,
59 and it seems it has fallen now to my discression.
60
61* rc-scripts 1.3.1 (23 Mar 2002)
62
63 23 March 2002; Daniel Robbins <drobbins@gentoo.org>: init.d/net.eth0: fix for
64 DHCP lease release from Jim Nutt.
65
66 23 March 2002; Daniel Robbins <drobbins@gentoo.org>: rolling a new release
67 since there are a lot of important bug fixes in here that are needed.
68
69 23 March 2002; Martin Schlemmer <azarah@gentoo.org>:
70
71 Resolve bug #1292.
72
73 Remove the extra 'depmod -a' in /etc/init.d/modules, thanks to
74 Spidler.
75
76 21 March 2002; Martin Schlemmer <azarah@gentoo.org>:
77
78 Update /sbin/rc to fix a 'cat mounts' instead of the correct
79 version, 'cat /proc/mounts'.
80
81 19 March 2002; Martin Schlemmer <azarah@gentoo.org>:
82
83 Add initial support for the --quiet flag that suppress output.
84
85 18 March 2002; Martin Schlemmer <azarah@gentoo.org>:
86
87 Remove the 'try' from 'try /etc/init.d/depscan.sh' in /sbin/rc
88 as not all errors by depscan.sh is critical. It should be
89 reworked to do better error handeling.
90
91 14 March 2002; Martin Schlemmer <azarah@gentoo.org>:
92
93 Fix the GID and UID of nobody and nogroup in /etc/passwd and
94 /etc/group to match those of Debian, FBSD and others. Thanks
95 to those who reported it, and Woodchip for looking up the
96 proper values.
97
98 Update /etc/init.d/net.eth0 to properly down DHCP interfaces.
99 This resolves bug #1150, thanks to Paul Fleischer.
100
101 11 March 2002; Martin Schlemmer <azarah@gentoo.org>:
102
103 Updated /etc/init.d/functions.sh not to use /usr/bin/basename,
104 as some users have /usr on seperate partition which is not
105 mounted when depscan.sh is run the first time.
106
107 Updated the checking for more than one service providing the
108 same virtual function in /etc/init.d/depscan.sh. It should
109 be working now, and this also fix a problem that when there is no
110 service providing a virtual, counter was used uninitialized.
111
112* rc-scripts 1.3.0 (10 March 2002)
113
114 10 March 2002; Martin Schlemmer <azarah@gentoo.org>: Resolved
115 bug #1021; updated /etc/init.d/consolefont for this.
116
117 Resolved bug #1029; updated /etc/init.d/net.eth0 for this.
118
119 Resolved bug #990; updated /etc/init.d/net.eth0, /etc/init.d/netmount
120 and /etc/init.d/localmount for this.
121
122 Lots of form/syntax cleanups, most things should be more
123 consistant now. Fixed fail detection/return values of lots of
124 scripts.
125
126 Lots of cleanup/fixes in the three main scripts behind our
127 rc-system, /sbin/rc, /etc/init.d/depscan.sh, /etc/init.d/runscript.sh
128
129 Fix a bug regarding a invalid $PATH for portage if /etc/init.d/functions.sh
130 is sourced in a ebuild.
131
132 Fix a bug that our rc-script wrapper introduced: Global variables
133 in scripts no longer worked. Updated /etc/init.d/runscript.sh for
134 this.
135
136 Implemented more error checking for the main startup code in /sbin/rc.
137 Also fixed try() for mounting /proc (maybe all mount commands).
138 The function worked fine in a simulated test, but in real life failed
139 to detect a error when mounting /proc (remember to thank Grant for
140 his UserMode ebuilds, and Guide).
141
142* rc-scripts 1.2.9 (6 March 2002)
143
144 6 March 2002; Martin Schlemmer <azarah@gentoo.org>: General form
145 updates and some piping fixes.
146
147 Updated /etc/inittab, /etc/init.d/xdm and /etc/X11/startDM.sh
148 to fix a problem where startDM.sh would be respawned repeatedly
149 if xdm was not in the default runlevel.
150
151* rc-scripts 1.2.8 (4 March 2002)
152
153 4 March 2002; Martin Schlemmer <azarah@gentoo.org>: add /etc/init.d/xdm,
154 /etc/X11/startDM.sh and updated /etc/inittab to fix the "dead key"
155 problem we had with xdm/gdm/kdm. We should move them to the
156 xfree ebuild later on when things settles down.
157
158 Added some sanity checks to /sbin/rc, /etc/init.d/runscripts.sh.
159
160 Added a basic $PATH to /etc/init.d/functions.sh to fix a problem
161 where we had a invalid $PATH on boot in some cases.
162
163 Updated /etc/init.d/keymap and /etc/init.d/consolefont to work with
164 the new sys-apps/kbd package.
165
166* rc-scripts 1.2.7 (3 March 2002)
167
168 3 March 2002; Martin Schlemmer <azarah@gentoo.org>: fixed the problem
169 of rc-scripts trying to start/stop a service multiple times if it
170 fails to do so. Updated /etc/init.d/runscript.sh and /sbin/rc for
171 this.
172
173 Fixing some variable declarations in /etc/init.d/runscript.sh caused
174 /etc/init.d/net.lo to fail on stop ($IFACE was set invalid). Fixed
175 this.
176
177 Added caching of the "depend() { need foo; } " lines, and updated
178 /etc/init.d/depscan.sh to touch the actual files less. This should
179 speedup dependancy caching a lot, especially on slow machines.
180
181 Updated /etc/passwd to have users with no shell defined, use /bin/false
182 for security.
183
184 Update /etc/fstab to mention /dev/shm since we dont mount it anymore.
185
186 1 March 2002; Martin Schlemmer <azarah@gentoo.org>: added a wrapper for
187 sourcing the rc-scripts to eliminate syntax errors. Thanks to
188 Karl Trygve Kalleberg (aka karltk) for the idea. Updated
189 /etc/init.d/depscan.sh, /etc/init.d/functions.sh and
190 /etc/init.d/runscript.sh for this (added wrap_rcscript() function).
191
192 Removed stopping of dependant services that have current service as
193 a 'use'dependancy ... should be less confusing now.
194 Updated /etc/init.d/runscript.sh for this.
195
196 28 Feb 2002; Martin Schlemmer <azarah@gentoo.org>: add /etc/conf.d/local.start
197 and /etc/conf.d/local.stop for adding any misc programs to startup. This
198 should pretty much have /etc/init.d/ static, except for baselayout updates,
199 etc.
200
201 27 Feb 2002; Martin Schlemmer <azarah@gentoo.org>: in some wierd cases,
202 a redundent /dev/.devfsd on a unmounted /dev can cause problems. Fixed
203 this in /sbin/rc.
204
205 Added the patches from Grant Goodyear (aka g2boojum) to enable us to
206 use a ramdisk to store the contents of ${svcdir}. Updated /sbin/rc,
207 /etc/init.d/functions.sh and /etc/init.d/checkroot for this.
208
209 26 Feb 2002; Martin Schlemmer <azarah@gentoo.org>: fix my brain dead
210 update of the 25th. It really should keep "gentoo=nodevfs" in mind.
211 Also added 'get_bootparam()' to help in retrieving kernel options.
212 Updated /etc/init.d/functions.sh, /etc/init.d/checkroot and /sbin/rc
213 for this.
214
215 Updated /etc/init.d/consolefont to work without devfs as well.
216
217 When rebooting or shutting down, a service should not fail to stop
218 if a service it depends on, fails. Updated /etc/init.d/runscript.sh
219 for this.
220
221 25 Feb 2002; Martin Schlemmer <azarah@gentoo.org>: added a check if
222 /dev is mounted when creating entries for /etc/mtab. This should solve a
223 invalid entry or /dev being mounted even with 'gentoo=nodevfs' option.
224 Updated /etc/init.d/checkroot for this.
225
226 17 Feb 2002: Daniel Robbins <drobbins@gentoo.org>: Made "xfs" the default
227 filesystem in /etc/fstab (from ReiserFS) and removed "notail" option (it's
228 just in a comment now)
229
230 17 Feb 2002: Martin Schlemmer (azarah@gentoo.org): more fixes to 'after' and
231 'before', updated /etc/init.d/runscript.sh for this. This should fix
232 services not getting started in the correct order in a tight loop, services
233 getting stopped out of order, and some other sanity checks. Updated
234 rc-script.sh for updated help.
235
236 15 Feb 2002: Martin Schlemmer (azarah@gentoo.org): update /etc/profile to
237 resolve bug #588. Reimplemented things a bit, and added the 'after' type.
238 'before' and 'after' will only work currently for a change of runlevel.
239 Updated /etc/init.d/depscan.sh, /etc/init.d/runscript.sh and /sbin/rc for it.
240
241 13 Feb 2002: Martin Schlemmer (azarah@gentoo.org): add some more entries to
242 /etc/devfsd.conf to make alsa users life easier ... thanks Tod.
243
244 12 Feb 2002: Martin Schlemmer (azarah@gentoo.org): Some more cleanups to
245 /etc/init.d/depscan.sh and /etc/init.d/runscript.sh.
246
247 Fixed some services not starting again when restarting a service.
248 Seems simple is still the best way.
249
250 Fixed some other problems created with feature additions and cleanups.
251
252 11 Feb 2002: Martin Schlemmer (azarah@gentoo.org): General cleanups to
253 /etc/init.d/depscan.sh and /etc/init.d/runscript.sh.
254
255 Added 'before *' to /etc/init.d/checkroot to make sure it gets
256 started first.
257
258 Added 'use *' to /etc/init.d/local to make sure it gets started
259 last.
260
261 10 Feb 2002: Martin Schlemmer (azarah@gentoo.org): Fixed /sbin/rc
262 to stop a service on change of runlevel if it is in 'use' by
263 another service.
264
265 Added the 'provide' depend type for creating virtual services.
266 Updated /etc/init.d/depscan.sh for this.
267
268 Added the 'before' depend type. This is more for changing the
269 order services start in. Updated /etc/init.d/depscan.sh and
270 /etc/init.d/functions.sh for this.
271
272 Updated /etc/init.d/depscan.sh to work with '*' as argument for
273 dependancy types. This can be used with 'use' and 'before' to
274 start a script last or first respectively.
275
276 Added save_options() and get_options() to /etc/init.d/functions.sh
277 for saving misc settings between startup/shutdown. Updated
278 /etc/init.d/net.eth0 to use these and properly down virtual
279 interfaces.
280
281 6 Feb 2002: Martin Schlemmer (azarah@gentoo.org): updated both
282 /etc/init.d/bootmisc and /etc/init.d/keymaps to be quiet on no
283 errors.
284
285* rc-scripts 1.2.6 (6 Feb 2002)
286
287 2 Feb 2002: Martin Schlemmer (azarah@gentoo.org): updated /etc/net.eth0
288 to specify the gateway device via the $gateway variable (something like
289 gateway="eth0/192.168.0.1").
290
291 2 Feb 2002: Martin Schlemmer (azarah@gentoo.org): added rc-script
292 /etc/init.d/numlock, for enabling numlock at boot.
293
294 29 Jan 2002: Martin Schlemmer (azarah@gentoo.org): hopefully the
295 last fix to /etc/init.d/netmount to umount cleanly. This fix
296 implements a retry if not successful the first time, and will
297 kill processess using the mount. Also small type-o fix to
298 /etc/init.d/halt.sh.
299
300 27 Jan 2002: Donny Davies (woodchip@gentoo.org): security fix to
301 /etc/pam.d/sshd,login,chsh: added pam_shells.so to the stack.
302 Fixed /etc/passwd,group for user/group mysql.
303
304 27 Jan 2002: Martin Schlemmer (azarah@gentoo.org): added charset
305 map file support to /etc/init.d/consolefont and the setting to
306 /etc/rc.conf.
307
308 25 Jan 2002: Martin Schlemmer (azarah@gentoo.org): fixed dircolors
309 in skel files to support both versions of dircolors.
310
311 23 Jan 2002: Martin Schlemmer (azarah@gentoo.org): fixed bug
312 in the restart stuff of /etc/init.d/runscript.sh that caused
313 a restart of a 'net' service not to restart services again
314 that depended on it.
315
316* rc-scripts 1.2.5 (20 Jan 2002)
4 317
5 20 Jan 2002: Martin Schlemmer (azarah@gentoo.org): updated 318 20 Jan 2002: Martin Schlemmer (azarah@gentoo.org): updated
