5 28 April 2002; Martin Schlemmer <azarah@gentoo.org>:
6
7 Update /etc/rc.conf to be more clear and state that you should

9 resolve bug #2174.
10
11 26 April 2002; Donny Davies <woodchip@gentoo.org> passwd, group :

18 in /etc/init.d/net.eth0. Thanks to Peter W. Michaleas for
19 noting this.
20
21 24 April 2002; Donny Davies <woodchip@gentoo.org> rc.conf :
22
23 Remove NFSSERVER from rc.conf since it's now covered in /etc/conf.d/nfs
24 which is installed with the nfs-utils package. Also tidied up some
25 really old, leftover junk like the non-supported stuff from rc5.
26 Closes #1754.
27
28 23 April 2002; Martin Schlemmer <azarah@gentoo.org>:
29
30 Remove creation of /var/run/utmpx from bootmisc again. Seems

34
35 21 April 2002; Martin Schlemmer <azarah@gentoo.org>:
36
37 Add /sbin/rc-envupdate.sh to speedup updating of /etc/profile.env,
38 and /etc/csh.env. Update /etc/init.d/bootmisc to use this.

45
46 12 April 2002; Martin Schlemmer <azarah@gentoo.org>:
47
48 Update /etc/init.d/bootmisc to create /var/run/utmpx. This

50
51 11 April 2002; Martin Schlemmer <azarah@gentoo.org>:
52
53 Update /etc/skel/.bash_profile to make it tcsh compadible.
54 Thanks to Väinö Järvelä for this fix.
55
56 Update /etc/profile to also set the PS? variables if $SHELL
57 is set to /bin/sh. This should make prompt colours in
58 bootstrap work again.
59
60 Move LVM stuff to checkfs to ensure that they get fscked.
61 This resolves bug #1552.
62
63* rc-scripts 1.3.3 (5 April 2002)
64
65 5 April 2002; Martin Schlemmer <azarah@gentoo.org>:
66
67 Move /etc/init.d/{depscan.sh,runscript.sh,functions.sh} to /sbin.

79
80 24 March 2002; Martin Schlemmer <azarah@gentoo.org>:
81
82 Resolve bug #1274. Updated /etc/init.d/hostname and /etc/init.d/bootmisc
83 for this.
84
85 With the "before" and "after" stuff, recursion levels was getting too high,
86 and with some cases, things just plain did not work as it should. Reworked
87 things to to lower the levels of recursion and get the order right. Updated
88 /etc/init.d/runscript.sh for this.
89
90 Fixed a problem in /sbin/rc and /etc/init.d/runscript.sh where
91 ${svcdir}/softlevel did not always exist, but runscript.sh tried to open it.
92
93 Enhance --quiet support. Updated /etc/init.d/functions.sh for this.
94
95 Remove /etc/pwdb.conf, as pwdb already install a copy of this.
96
97 Remove /etc/pam.d/{rexec,rlogin,rsh} as pam already install this.
98
99 Added $INPUTRC to /etc/profile, since too many people keep on bugging me,
100 and it seems it has fallen now to my discression.
101
102* rc-scripts 1.3.1 (23 Mar 2002)
103
104 23 March 2002; Daniel Robbins <drobbins@gentoo.org>: init.d/net.eth0: fix for
105 DHCP lease release from Jim Nutt.
106
107 23 March 2002; Daniel Robbins <drobbins@gentoo.org>: rolling a new release
108 since there are a lot of important bug fixes in here that are needed.
109
110 23 March 2002; Martin Schlemmer <azarah@gentoo.org>:
111
112 Resolve bug #1292.
113
114 Remove the extra 'depmod -a' in /etc/init.d/modules, thanks to
115 Spidler.
116
117 21 March 2002; Martin Schlemmer <azarah@gentoo.org>:
118
119 Update /sbin/rc to fix a 'cat mounts' instead of the correct
120 version, 'cat /proc/mounts'.
121
122 19 March 2002; Martin Schlemmer <azarah@gentoo.org>:
123
124 Add initial support for the --quiet flag that suppress output.
125
126 18 March 2002; Martin Schlemmer <azarah@gentoo.org>:
127
128 Remove the 'try' from 'try /etc/init.d/depscan.sh' in /sbin/rc
129 as not all errors by depscan.sh is critical. It should be
130 reworked to do better error handeling.
131
132 14 March 2002; Martin Schlemmer <azarah@gentoo.org>:
133
134 Fix the GID and UID of nobody and nogroup in /etc/passwd and
135 /etc/group to match those of Debian, FBSD and others. Thanks
136 to those who reported it, and Woodchip for looking up the
137 proper values.
138
139 Update /etc/init.d/net.eth0 to properly down DHCP interfaces.
140 This resolves bug #1150, thanks to Paul Fleischer.
141
142 11 March 2002; Martin Schlemmer <azarah@gentoo.org>:
143
144 Updated /etc/init.d/functions.sh not to use /usr/bin/basename,
145 as some users have /usr on seperate partition which is not
146 mounted when depscan.sh is run the first time.
147
148 Updated the checking for more than one service providing the
149 same virtual function in /etc/init.d/depscan.sh. It should
150 be working now, and this also fix a problem that when there is no
151 service providing a virtual, counter was used uninitialized.
152
153* rc-scripts 1.3.0 (10 March 2002)
154
155 10 March 2002; Martin Schlemmer <azarah@gentoo.org>: Resolved
156 bug #1021; updated /etc/init.d/consolefont for this.
157
158 Resolved bug #1029; updated /etc/init.d/net.eth0 for this.
159
160 Resolved bug #990; updated /etc/init.d/net.eth0, /etc/init.d/netmount
161 and /etc/init.d/localmount for this.
162
163 Lots of form/syntax cleanups, most things should be more
164 consistant now. Fixed fail detection/return values of lots of
165 scripts.
166
167 Lots of cleanup/fixes in the three main scripts behind our
168 rc-system, /sbin/rc, /etc/init.d/depscan.sh, /etc/init.d/runscript.sh
169
170 Fix a bug regarding a invalid $PATH for portage if /etc/init.d/functions.sh
171 is sourced in a ebuild.
172
173 Fix a bug that our rc-script wrapper introduced: Global variables
174 in scripts no longer worked. Updated /etc/init.d/runscript.sh for
175 this.
176
177 Implemented more error checking for the main startup code in /sbin/rc.
178 Also fixed try() for mounting /proc (maybe all mount commands).
179 The function worked fine in a simulated test, but in real life failed
180 to detect a error when mounting /proc (remember to thank Grant for
181 his UserMode ebuilds, and Guide).
182
183* rc-scripts 1.2.9 (6 March 2002)
184
185 6 March 2002; Martin Schlemmer <azarah@gentoo.org>: General form
186 updates and some piping fixes.
187
188 Updated /etc/inittab, /etc/init.d/xdm and /etc/X11/startDM.sh
189 to fix a problem where startDM.sh would be respawned repeatedly
190 if xdm was not in the default runlevel.
191
192* rc-scripts 1.2.8 (4 March 2002)
193
194 4 March 2002; Martin Schlemmer <azarah@gentoo.org>: add /etc/init.d/xdm,
195 /etc/X11/startDM.sh and updated /etc/inittab to fix the "dead key"
196 problem we had with xdm/gdm/kdm. We should move them to the
197 xfree ebuild later on when things settles down.
198
199 Added some sanity checks to /sbin/rc, /etc/init.d/runscripts.sh.
200
201 Added a basic $PATH to /etc/init.d/functions.sh to fix a problem
202 where we had a invalid $PATH on boot in some cases.
203
204 Updated /etc/init.d/keymap and /etc/init.d/consolefont to work with
205 the new sys-apps/kbd package.
206
207* rc-scripts 1.2.7 (3 March 2002)
208
209 3 March 2002; Martin Schlemmer <azarah@gentoo.org>: fixed the problem
210 of rc-scripts trying to start/stop a service multiple times if it
211 fails to do so. Updated /etc/init.d/runscript.sh and /sbin/rc for
212 this.
213
214 Fixing some variable declarations in /etc/init.d/runscript.sh caused
215 /etc/init.d/net.lo to fail on stop ($IFACE was set invalid). Fixed
216 this.
217
218 Added caching of the "depend() { need foo; } " lines, and updated
219 /etc/init.d/depscan.sh to touch the actual files less. This should
220 speedup dependancy caching a lot, especially on slow machines.
221
222 Updated /etc/passwd to have users with no shell defined, use /bin/false
223 for security.
224
225 Update /etc/fstab to mention /dev/shm since we dont mount it anymore.
226
227 1 March 2002; Martin Schlemmer <azarah@gentoo.org>: added a wrapper for
228 sourcing the rc-scripts to eliminate syntax errors. Thanks to
229 Karl Trygve Kalleberg (aka karltk) for the idea. Updated
230 /etc/init.d/depscan.sh, /etc/init.d/functions.sh and
231 /etc/init.d/runscript.sh for this (added wrap_rcscript() function).
232
233 Removed stopping of dependant services that have current service as
234 a 'use'dependancy ... should be less confusing now.
235 Updated /etc/init.d/runscript.sh for this.
236
237 28 Feb 2002; Martin Schlemmer <azarah@gentoo.org>: add /etc/conf.d/local.start
238 and /etc/conf.d/local.stop for adding any misc programs to startup. This
239 should pretty much have /etc/init.d/ static, except for baselayout updates,
240 etc.
241
242 27 Feb 2002; Martin Schlemmer <azarah@gentoo.org>: in some wierd cases,
243 a redundent /dev/.devfsd on a unmounted /dev can cause problems. Fixed
244 this in /sbin/rc.
245
246 Added the patches from Grant Goodyear (aka g2boojum) to enable us to
247 use a ramdisk to store the contents of ${svcdir}. Updated /sbin/rc,
248 /etc/init.d/functions.sh and /etc/init.d/checkroot for this.
249
250 26 Feb 2002; Martin Schlemmer <azarah@gentoo.org>: fix my brain dead
251 update of the 25th. It really should keep "gentoo=nodevfs" in mind.
252 Also added 'get_bootparam()' to help in retrieving kernel options.
253 Updated /etc/init.d/functions.sh, /etc/init.d/checkroot and /sbin/rc
254 for this.
255
256 Updated /etc/init.d/consolefont to work without devfs as well.
257
258 When rebooting or shutting down, a service should not fail to stop
259 if a service it depends on, fails. Updated /etc/init.d/runscript.sh
260 for this.
261
262 25 Feb 2002; Martin Schlemmer <azarah@gentoo.org>: added a check if
263 /dev is mounted when creating entries for /etc/mtab. This should solve a
264 invalid entry or /dev being mounted even with 'gentoo=nodevfs' option.
265 Updated /etc/init.d/checkroot for this.
266
267 17 Feb 2002: Daniel Robbins <drobbins@gentoo.org>: Made "xfs" the default
268 filesystem in /etc/fstab (from ReiserFS) and removed "notail" option (it's
269 just in a comment now)
270
271 17 Feb 2002: Martin Schlemmer (azarah@gentoo.org): more fixes to 'after' and
272 'before', updated /etc/init.d/runscript.sh for this. This should fix
273 services not getting started in the correct order in a tight loop, services
274 getting stopped out of order, and some other sanity checks. Updated
275 rc-script.sh for updated help.
276
277 15 Feb 2002: Martin Schlemmer (azarah@gentoo.org): update /etc/profile to
278 resolve bug #588. Reimplemented things a bit, and added the 'after' type.
279 'before' and 'after' will only work currently for a change of runlevel.
280 Updated /etc/init.d/depscan.sh, /etc/init.d/runscript.sh and /sbin/rc for it.
281
282 13 Feb 2002: Martin Schlemmer (azarah@gentoo.org): add some more entries to
283 /etc/devfsd.conf to make alsa users life easier ... thanks Tod.
284
285 12 Feb 2002: Martin Schlemmer (azarah@gentoo.org): Some more cleanups to
286 /etc/init.d/depscan.sh and /etc/init.d/runscript.sh.
287
288 Fixed some services not starting again when restarting a service.
289 Seems simple is still the best way.
290
291 Fixed some other problems created with feature additions and cleanups.
292
293 11 Feb 2002: Martin Schlemmer (azarah@gentoo.org): General cleanups to
294 /etc/init.d/depscan.sh and /etc/init.d/runscript.sh.
295
296 Added 'before *' to /etc/init.d/checkroot to make sure it gets
297 started first.
298
299 Added 'use *' to /etc/init.d/local to make sure it gets started
300 last.
301
302 10 Feb 2002: Martin Schlemmer (azarah@gentoo.org): Fixed /sbin/rc
303 to stop a service on change of runlevel if it is in 'use' by
304 another service.
305
306 Added the 'provide' depend type for creating virtual services.
307 Updated /etc/init.d/depscan.sh for this.
308
309 Added the 'before' depend type. This is more for changing the
310 order services start in. Updated /etc/init.d/depscan.sh and
311 /etc/init.d/functions.sh for this.
312
313 Updated /etc/init.d/depscan.sh to work with '*' as argument for
314 dependancy types. This can be used with 'use' and 'before' to
315 start a script last or first respectively.
316
317 Added save_options() and get_options() to /etc/init.d/functions.sh
318 for saving misc settings between startup/shutdown. Updated
319 /etc/init.d/net.eth0 to use these and properly down virtual
320 interfaces.
321
322 6 Feb 2002: Martin Schlemmer (azarah@gentoo.org): updated both
323 /etc/init.d/bootmisc and /etc/init.d/keymaps to be quiet on no
324 errors.
325
326* rc-scripts 1.2.6 (6 Feb 2002)
327
328 2 Feb 2002: Martin Schlemmer (azarah@gentoo.org): updated /etc/net.eth0
329 to specify the gateway device via the $gateway variable (something like
330 gateway="eth0/192.168.0.1").
331
332 2 Feb 2002: Martin Schlemmer (azarah@gentoo.org): added rc-script
333 /etc/init.d/numlock, for enabling numlock at boot.
334
335 29 Jan 2002: Martin Schlemmer (azarah@gentoo.org): hopefully the
336 last fix to /etc/init.d/netmount to umount cleanly. This fix
337 implements a retry if not successful the first time, and will
338 kill processess using the mount. Also small type-o fix to
339 /etc/init.d/halt.sh.
340
341 27 Jan 2002: Donny Davies (woodchip@gentoo.org): security fix to
342 /etc/pam.d/sshd,login,chsh: added pam_shells.so to the stack.
343 Fixed /etc/passwd,group for user/group mysql.
344
345 27 Jan 2002: Martin Schlemmer (azarah@gentoo.org): added charset

6 in the restart stuff of /etc/init.d/runscript.sh that caused 353 in the restart stuff of /etc/init.d/runscript.sh that caused
7 a restart of a 'net' service not to restart services again 354 a restart of a 'net' service not to restart services again
8 that depended on it. 355 that depended on it.
9
10 Change the way /etc/mtab is created in /etc/init.d/checkroot to
11 be more generic.
12 356
13* rc-scripts 1.2.5 (20 Jan 2002) 357* rc-scripts 1.2.5 (20 Jan 2002)
