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

7 a restart of a 'net' service not to restart services again 227 a restart of a 'net' service not to restart services again
8 that depended on it. 228 that depended on it.
9
10 Change the way /etc/mtab is created in /etc/init.d/checkroot to
11 be more generic.
