5* rc-scripts 1.2.7 (3 March 2002)
6
7 3 March 2002; Martin Schlemmer <azarah@gentoo.org>: fixed the problem
8 of rc-scripts trying to start/stop a service multiple times if it
9 fails to do so. Updated /etc/init.d/runscript.sh and /sbin/rc for
10 this.
11
12 Fixing some variable declarations in /etc/init.d/runscript.sh caused
13 /etc/init.d/net.lo to fail on stop ($IFACE was set invalid). Fixed
14 this.
15
16 Added caching of the "depend() { need foo; } " lines, and updated
17 /etc/init.d/depscan.sh to touch the actual files less. This should
18 speedup dependancy caching a lot, especially on slow machines.
19
20 Updated /etc/passwd to have users with no shell defined, use /bin/false
21 for security.
22
23 Update /etc/fstab to mention /dev/shm since we dont mount it anymore.
24
25 1 March 2002; Martin Schlemmer <azarah@gentoo.org>: added a wrapper for
26 sourcing the rc-scripts to eliminate syntax errors. Thanks to
27 Karl Trygve Kalleberg (aka karltk) for the idea. Updated
28 /etc/init.d/depscan.sh, /etc/init.d/functions.sh and
29 /etc/init.d/runscript.sh for this (added wrap_rcscript() function).
30
31 Removed stopping of dependant services that have current service as
32 a 'use'dependancy ... should be less confusing now.
33 Updated /etc/init.d/runscript.sh for this.
34
35 28 Feb 2002; Martin Schlemmer <azarah@gentoo.org>: add /etc/conf.d/local.start
36 and /etc/conf.d/local.stop for adding any misc programs to startup. This
37 should pretty much have /etc/init.d/ static, except for baselayout updates,
38 etc.
39
40 27 Feb 2002; Martin Schlemmer <azarah@gentoo.org>: in some wierd cases,
41 a redundent /dev/.devfsd on a unmounted /dev can cause problems. Fixed
42 this in /sbin/rc.
43
44 Added the patches from Grant Goodyear (aka g2boojum) to enable us to
45 use a ramdisk to store the contents of ${svcdir}. Updated /sbin/rc,
46 /etc/init.d/functions.sh and /etc/init.d/checkroot for this.
47
48 26 Feb 2002; Martin Schlemmer <azarah@gentoo.org>: fix my brain dead
49 update of the 25th. It really should keep "gentoo=nodevfs" in mind.
50 Also added 'get_bootparam()' to help in retrieving kernel options.
51 Updated /etc/init.d/functions.sh, /etc/init.d/checkroot and /sbin/rc
52 for this.
53
54 Updated /etc/init.d/consolefont to work without devfs as well.
55
56 When rebooting or shutting down, a service should not fail to stop
57 if a service it depends on, fails. Updated /etc/init.d/runscript.sh
58 for this.
59
60 25 Feb 2002; Martin Schlemmer <azarah@gentoo.org>: added a check if
61 /dev is mounted when creating entries for /etc/mtab. This should solve a
62 invalid entry or /dev being mounted even with 'gentoo=nodevfs' option.
63 Updated /etc/init.d/checkroot for this.
64
65 17 Feb 2002: Daniel Robbins <drobbins@gentoo.org>: Made "xfs" the default
66 filesystem in /etc/fstab (from ReiserFS) and removed "notail" option (it's
67 just in a comment now)
68
69 17 Feb 2002: Martin Schlemmer (azarah@gentoo.org): more fixes to 'after' and
70 'before', updated /etc/init.d/runscript.sh for this. This should fix
71 services not getting started in the correct order in a tight loop, services
72 getting stopped out of order, and some other sanity checks. Updated
73 rc-script.sh for updated help.
74
75 15 Feb 2002: Martin Schlemmer (azarah@gentoo.org): update /etc/profile to
76 resolve bug #588. Reimplemented things a bit, and added the 'after' type.
77 'before' and 'after' will only work currently for a change of runlevel.
78 Updated /etc/init.d/depscan.sh, /etc/init.d/runscript.sh and /sbin/rc for it.
79
80 13 Feb 2002: Martin Schlemmer (azarah@gentoo.org): add some more entries to
81 /etc/devfsd.conf to make alsa users life easier ... thanks Tod.
82
83 12 Feb 2002: Martin Schlemmer (azarah@gentoo.org): Some more cleanups to
84 /etc/init.d/depscan.sh and /etc/init.d/runscript.sh.
85
86 Fixed some services not starting again when restarting a service.
87 Seems simple is still the best way.
88
89 Fixed some other problems created with feature additions and cleanups.
90
91 11 Feb 2002: Martin Schlemmer (azarah@gentoo.org): General cleanups to
92 /etc/init.d/depscan.sh and /etc/init.d/runscript.sh.
93
94 Added 'before *' to /etc/init.d/checkroot to make sure it gets
95 started first.
96
97 Added 'use *' to /etc/init.d/local to make sure it gets started
98 last.
99
100 10 Feb 2002: Martin Schlemmer (azarah@gentoo.org): Fixed /sbin/rc
101 to stop a service on change of runlevel if it is in 'use' by
102 another service.
103
104 Added the 'provide' depend type for creating virtual services.
105 Updated /etc/init.d/depscan.sh for this.
106
107 Added the 'before' depend type. This is more for changing the
108 order services start in. Updated /etc/init.d/depscan.sh and
109 /etc/init.d/functions.sh for this.
110
111 Updated /etc/init.d/depscan.sh to work with '*' as argument for
112 dependancy types. This can be used with 'use' and 'before' to
113 start a script last or first respectively.
114
115 Added save_options() and get_options() to /etc/init.d/functions.sh
116 for saving misc settings between startup/shutdown. Updated
117 /etc/init.d/net.eth0 to use these and properly down virtual
118 interfaces.
119
120 6 Feb 2002: Martin Schlemmer (azarah@gentoo.org): updated both
121 /etc/init.d/bootmisc and /etc/init.d/keymaps to be quiet on no
122 errors.
123
124* rc-scripts 1.2.6 (6 Feb 2002)
125
126 2 Feb 2002: Martin Schlemmer (azarah@gentoo.org): updated /etc/net.eth0
127 to specify the gateway device via the $gateway variable (something like
128 gateway="eth0/192.168.0.1").
129
130 2 Feb 2002: Martin Schlemmer (azarah@gentoo.org): added rc-script
131 /etc/init.d/numlock, for enabling numlock at boot.
132
133 29 Jan 2002: Martin Schlemmer (azarah@gentoo.org): hopefully the
134 last fix to /etc/init.d/netmount to umount cleanly. This fix
135 implements a retry if not successful the first time, and will
136 kill processess using the mount. Also small type-o fix to
137 /etc/init.d/halt.sh.
138
139 27 Jan 2002: Donny Davies (woodchip@gentoo.org): security fix to
140 /etc/pam.d/sshd,login,chsh: added pam_shells.so to the stack.
141 Fixed /etc/passwd,group for user/group mysql.
142
143 27 Jan 2002: Martin Schlemmer (azarah@gentoo.org): added charset
144 map file support to /etc/init.d/consolefont and the setting to
145 /etc/rc.conf.
146
147 25 Jan 2002: Martin Schlemmer (azarah@gentoo.org): fixed dircolors
148 in skel files to support both versions of dircolors.

7 a restart of a 'net' service not to restart services again 152 a restart of a 'net' service not to restart services again
8 that depended on it. 153 that depended on it.
9
10 Change the way /etc/mtab is created in /etc/init.d/checkroot to
11 be more generic.
