5 20 Jan 2002: Martin Schlemmer (azarah@gentoo.org): updated
6 /etc/init.d/net.eth0 to 'use' pcmcia.
7
8 8 Jan 2002: Martin Schlemmer (azarah@gentoo.org): added '--sh' to
9 the dircolors command in /etc/skel/.bash_profile to handle cases
10 where bash do not export $SHELL.
11
12 6 Jan 2002: Martin Schlemmer (azarah@gentoo.org): updated
13 /etc/init.d/runscripts.sh, /etc/init.d/net.eth0, /etc/conf.d/net and
14 removed /etc/init.d/net.eth0-dhcp to reflect a new 'bsd-ish' config
15 scheme for the net.eth* scripts.
16
17 6 Jan 2002: Donny Davies (woodchip@gentoo.org): Removed email address
18 from manpages; no need for that..
19
20 5 Jan 2002: Martin Schlemmer (azarah@gentoo.org): fix type-o in
21 /etc/devfsd.conf; had 'dvd' in the cdrw stuff.
22
23* rc-scripts 1.2.4 (30 Dec 2001)
24
25 30 Dec 2001: Daniel Robbins (drobbins@gentoo.org): Changed default umask
26 back to 022 as it should be.
27
28 30 Dec 2001; Martin Schlemmer (azarah@gentoo.org): Updated
29 /etc/init.d/checkfs to return 0 if the fs was successfully repaired.
30
31 29 Dec 2001; Donny Davies (woodchip@gentoo.org):
32 sort -t: -k3,3 -n /etc/passwd,group. Ahhhh :))
33
34 28 Dec 2001; Martin Schlemmer (azarah@gentoo.org); Updated
35 /etc/init.d/depscan.sh to store info about missing dependancies of
36 type 'need' in ${svcdir}/broken. Also updated /etc/init.d/runscript.sh
37 to use this when starting a script ('need' dependancies is critical for
38 startup). Added the broken() function to /etc/init.d/runscript.sh
39 to list the missing dependancies.
40
41 Updated /etc/init.d/runscript.sh for svc_start() to have better error
42 checking.
43
44 Updated /etc/init.d/functions.sh with ewend(), which is the same as
45 eend(), but print a warning on error, not a error. Updated
46 /etc/init.d/checkroot and /etc/init.d/checkfs to use this function.
47
48 27 Dec 2001; Martin Schlemmer (azarah@gentoo.org); Update /sbin/runscript.c
49 to run /etc/init.d/rc-help.sh if no arguments is passed to a rc-script.
50
51 Added /etc/init.d/rc-help.sh, simple script that prints out help for
52 the rc-scripts.
53
54 25 Dec 2001; Martin Schlemmer (azarah@gentoo.org); Update
55 /etc/init.d/shutdown.sh and /etc/init.d/reboot.sh not to force the
56 halt and reboot. This fixes a problem where / was not unmounted
57 properly in some cases.
58
59 24 Dec 2001; Martin Schlemmer (azarah@gentoo.org): Move $svcdir to
60 to /etc/init.d/functions.sh, and update /etc/init.d/runscript.sh and
61 /etc/init.d/depscan.sh for this
62
63 Modified /etc/init.d/runscript.sh to also restart the services that
64 depend on a service if that service is restarted. Enhanced the
65 restart function to be able to have custom restart() functions in
66 rc-scripts. The custom restart() have to use svc_stop() and
67 svc_start() to restart the service.
68
69 Add a pause function to /etc/init.d/runscript.sh. It will basically
70 stop a service without stopping the services that depends on that
71 service.
72
73 Add a pause function to /etc/init.d/runscript.sh. It will basically stop a
74 service without stopping the services that depends on that service.
75
76* rc-scripts 1.2.3 (18 Dec 2001)
77
78 16 Dec 2001; Martin Schlemmer (azarah@gentoo.org): Moved the stuff from
79 /sbin/init (old) to /sbin/rc (basically drop the init wrapper we used).
80
81 Some cleanups: take out the shm resize comment;
82
83 remove the $wrongmount;
84
85 remove the mountshm() function and insert it directly
86 where needed;
87
88 remove the setting of $PATH as /sbin/init already do
89 this for us.
90
91 Added the if statement to detect if it is the first time the 'boot'
92 runlevel is executed (if [ "$RUNLEVEL" = "S" ] && [ "$argv1" = "boot" ]).
93 $RUNLEVEL is a env var set by /sbin/init.
94
95 Also added functionality to detect if the kernel have DEVFS support
96 compiled in; seems new users thinks devfs is unstable and as they do
97 not always read the docs, it does not get compiled in ;/ Should
98 make live for us a bit easier.
99
100 14 Dec 2001; Martin Schlemmer (azarah@gentoo.org): Fixed /sbin/rc to kill
101 a cosmetic bug in the part that stops all the unneeded services.
4 102

33 /etc/init.d/depscan.sh for a virtual 'use' depend, called 'logger' 129 /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 130 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 131 before they are started. Updated /etc/conf.d/basic with $SYSLOGGER
36 that is used to define what loggers the 'logger' depend represent. 132 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. 135 /etc/passwd and /etc/group with minor fixes to pass pwck and grpck.
42 136
43 25 Nov 2001; Martin Schlemmer (azarah@gentoo.org): Changed umask in 137 25 Nov 2001; Martin Schlemmer (azarah@gentoo.org): Changed umask in
44 /etc/profile for the user to 077 for security. 138 /etc/profile for the user to 077 for security.
45 139
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 140 Added a stop() function to /etc/init.d/clock. Also removed uneeded
51 'source /etc/rc.conf' line. 141 'source /etc/rc.conf' line.
52 142
53 Updated /etc/init.d/hostname to set the hostname to 'localhost' if 143 Updated /etc/init.d/hostname to set the hostname to 'localhost' if
54 /etc/hostname is invalid. 144 /etc/hostname is invalid.

56 Updated /etc/init.d/hdparm to display a [ok] for each drive it optimizes.
57 145
58 Updated /sbin/init to move the entries in /lib/dev-state to /dev before 146 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 147 running devfsd, as it did still not save settings properly. Also removed
60 old /dev-state/compat stuff. 148 old /dev-state/compat stuff.
61 149
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 150 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.
