5* rc-scripts 1.3.1 (23 Mar 2002)
6
7 23 March 2002; Daniel Robbins <drobbins@gentoo.org>: rolling a new
8 release since there are a lot of important bug fixes in here that
9 are needed.
10
11 23 March 2002; Martin Schlemmer <azarah@gentoo.org>:
12
13 Resolve bug #1292.
14
15 Remove the extra 'depmod -a' in /etc/init.d/modules, thanks to
16 Spidler.
17
18 21 March 2002; Martin Schlemmer <azarah@gentoo.org>:
19
20 Update /sbin/rc to fix a 'cat mounts' instead of the correct
21 version, 'cat /proc/mounts'.
22
23 19 March 2002; Martin Schlemmer <azarah@gentoo.org>:
24
25 Add initial support for the --quiet flag that suppress output.
26
27 18 March 2002; Martin Schlemmer <azarah@gentoo.org>:
28
29 Remove the 'try' from 'try /etc/init.d/depscan.sh' in /sbin/rc
30 as not all errors by depscan.sh is critical. It should be
31 reworked to do better error handeling.
32
33 14 March 2002; Martin Schlemmer <azarah@gentoo.org>:
34
35 Fix the GID and UID of nobody and nogroup in /etc/passwd and
36 /etc/group to match those of Debian, FBSD and others. Thanks
37 to those who reported it, and Woodchip for looking up the
38 proper values.
39
40 Update /etc/init.d/net.eth0 to properly down DHCP interfaces.
41 This resolves bug #1150, thanks to Paul Fleischer.
42
43 11 March 2002; Martin Schlemmer <azarah@gentoo.org>:
44
45 Updated /etc/init.d/functions.sh not to use /usr/bin/basename,
46 as some users have /usr on seperate partition which is not
47 mounted when depscan.sh is run the first time.
48
49 Updated the checking for more than one service providing the
50 same virtual function in /etc/init.d/depscan.sh. It should
51 be working now, and this also fix a problem that when there is no
52 service providing a virtual, counter was used uninitialized.
53
54* rc-scripts 1.3.0 (10 March 2002)
55
56 10 March 2002; Martin Schlemmer <azarah@gentoo.org>: Resolved
57 bug #1021; updated /etc/init.d/consolefont for this.
58
59 Resolved bug #1029; updated /etc/init.d/net.eth0 for this.
60
61 Resolved bug #990; updated /etc/init.d/net.eth0, /etc/init.d/netmount
62 and /etc/init.d/localmount for this.
63
64 Lots of form/syntax cleanups, most things should be more
65 consistant now. Fixed fail detection/return values of lots of
66 scripts.
67
68 Lots of cleanup/fixes in the three main scripts behind our
69 rc-system, /sbin/rc, /etc/init.d/depscan.sh, /etc/init.d/runscript.sh
70
71 Fix a bug regarding a invalid $PATH for portage if /etc/init.d/functions.sh
72 is sourced in a ebuild.
73
74 Fix a bug that our rc-script wrapper introduced: Global variables
75 in scripts no longer worked. Updated /etc/init.d/runscript.sh for
76 this.
77
78 Implemented more error checking for the main startup code in /sbin/rc.
79 Also fixed try() for mounting /proc (maybe all mount commands).
80 The function worked fine in a simulated test, but in real life failed
81 to detect a error when mounting /proc (remember to thank Grant for
82 his UserMode ebuilds, and Guide).
83
84* rc-scripts 1.2.9 (6 March 2002)
85
86 6 March 2002; Martin Schlemmer <azarah@gentoo.org>: General form
87 updates and some piping fixes.
88
89 Updated /etc/inittab, /etc/init.d/xdm and /etc/X11/startDM.sh
90 to fix a problem where startDM.sh would be respawned repeatedly
91 if xdm was not in the default runlevel.
92
93* rc-scripts 1.2.8 (4 March 2002)
94
95 4 March 2002; Martin Schlemmer <azarah@gentoo.org>: add /etc/init.d/xdm,
96 /etc/X11/startDM.sh and updated /etc/inittab to fix the "dead key"
97 problem we had with xdm/gdm/kdm. We should move them to the
98 xfree ebuild later on when things settles down.
99
100 Added some sanity checks to /sbin/rc, /etc/init.d/runscripts.sh.
101
102 Added a basic $PATH to /etc/init.d/functions.sh to fix a problem
103 where we had a invalid $PATH on boot in some cases.
104
105 Updated /etc/init.d/keymap and /etc/init.d/consolefont to work with
106 the new sys-apps/kbd package.
107
108* rc-scripts 1.2.7 (3 March 2002)
109
110 3 March 2002; Martin Schlemmer <azarah@gentoo.org>: fixed the problem
111 of rc-scripts trying to start/stop a service multiple times if it
112 fails to do so. Updated /etc/init.d/runscript.sh and /sbin/rc for
113 this.
114
115 Fixing some variable declarations in /etc/init.d/runscript.sh caused
116 /etc/init.d/net.lo to fail on stop ($IFACE was set invalid). Fixed
117 this.
118
119 Added caching of the "depend() { need foo; } " lines, and updated
120 /etc/init.d/depscan.sh to touch the actual files less. This should
121 speedup dependancy caching a lot, especially on slow machines.
122
123 Updated /etc/passwd to have users with no shell defined, use /bin/false
124 for security.
125
126 Update /etc/fstab to mention /dev/shm since we dont mount it anymore.
127
128 1 March 2002; Martin Schlemmer <azarah@gentoo.org>: added a wrapper for
129 sourcing the rc-scripts to eliminate syntax errors. Thanks to
130 Karl Trygve Kalleberg (aka karltk) for the idea. Updated
131 /etc/init.d/depscan.sh, /etc/init.d/functions.sh and
132 /etc/init.d/runscript.sh for this (added wrap_rcscript() function).
133
134 Removed stopping of dependant services that have current service as
135 a 'use'dependancy ... should be less confusing now.
136 Updated /etc/init.d/runscript.sh for this.
137
138 28 Feb 2002; Martin Schlemmer <azarah@gentoo.org>: add /etc/conf.d/local.start
139 and /etc/conf.d/local.stop for adding any misc programs to startup. This
140 should pretty much have /etc/init.d/ static, except for baselayout updates,
141 etc.
142
143 27 Feb 2002; Martin Schlemmer <azarah@gentoo.org>: in some wierd cases,
144 a redundent /dev/.devfsd on a unmounted /dev can cause problems. Fixed
145 this in /sbin/rc.
146
147 Added the patches from Grant Goodyear (aka g2boojum) to enable us to
148 use a ramdisk to store the contents of ${svcdir}. Updated /sbin/rc,
149 /etc/init.d/functions.sh and /etc/init.d/checkroot for this.
150
151 26 Feb 2002; Martin Schlemmer <azarah@gentoo.org>: fix my brain dead
152 update of the 25th. It really should keep "gentoo=nodevfs" in mind.
153 Also added 'get_bootparam()' to help in retrieving kernel options.
154 Updated /etc/init.d/functions.sh, /etc/init.d/checkroot and /sbin/rc
155 for this.
156
157 Updated /etc/init.d/consolefont to work without devfs as well.
158
159 When rebooting or shutting down, a service should not fail to stop
160 if a service it depends on, fails. Updated /etc/init.d/runscript.sh
161 for this.
162
163 25 Feb 2002; Martin Schlemmer <azarah@gentoo.org>: added a check if
164 /dev is mounted when creating entries for /etc/mtab. This should solve a
165 invalid entry or /dev being mounted even with 'gentoo=nodevfs' option.
166 Updated /etc/init.d/checkroot for this.
167
168 17 Feb 2002: Daniel Robbins <drobbins@gentoo.org>: Made "xfs" the default
169 filesystem in /etc/fstab (from ReiserFS) and removed "notail" option (it's
170 just in a comment now)
171
172 17 Feb 2002: Martin Schlemmer (azarah@gentoo.org): more fixes to 'after' and
173 'before', updated /etc/init.d/runscript.sh for this. This should fix
174 services not getting started in the correct order in a tight loop, services
175 getting stopped out of order, and some other sanity checks. Updated
176 rc-script.sh for updated help.
177
178 15 Feb 2002: Martin Schlemmer (azarah@gentoo.org): update /etc/profile to
179 resolve bug #588. Reimplemented things a bit, and added the 'after' type.
180 'before' and 'after' will only work currently for a change of runlevel.
181 Updated /etc/init.d/depscan.sh, /etc/init.d/runscript.sh and /sbin/rc for it.
182
183 13 Feb 2002: Martin Schlemmer (azarah@gentoo.org): add some more entries to
184 /etc/devfsd.conf to make alsa users life easier ... thanks Tod.
185
186 12 Feb 2002: Martin Schlemmer (azarah@gentoo.org): Some more cleanups to
187 /etc/init.d/depscan.sh and /etc/init.d/runscript.sh.
188
189 Fixed some services not starting again when restarting a service.
190 Seems simple is still the best way.
191
192 Fixed some other problems created with feature additions and cleanups.
193
194 11 Feb 2002: Martin Schlemmer (azarah@gentoo.org): General cleanups to
195 /etc/init.d/depscan.sh and /etc/init.d/runscript.sh.
196
197 Added 'before *' to /etc/init.d/checkroot to make sure it gets
198 started first.
199
200 Added 'use *' to /etc/init.d/local to make sure it gets started
201 last.
202
203 10 Feb 2002: Martin Schlemmer (azarah@gentoo.org): Fixed /sbin/rc
204 to stop a service on change of runlevel if it is in 'use' by
205 another service.
206
207 Added the 'provide' depend type for creating virtual services.
208 Updated /etc/init.d/depscan.sh for this.
209
210 Added the 'before' depend type. This is more for changing the
211 order services start in. Updated /etc/init.d/depscan.sh and
212 /etc/init.d/functions.sh for this.
213
214 Updated /etc/init.d/depscan.sh to work with '*' as argument for
215 dependancy types. This can be used with 'use' and 'before' to
216 start a script last or first respectively.
217
218 Added save_options() and get_options() to /etc/init.d/functions.sh
219 for saving misc settings between startup/shutdown. Updated
220 /etc/init.d/net.eth0 to use these and properly down virtual
221 interfaces.
222
223 6 Feb 2002: Martin Schlemmer (azarah@gentoo.org): updated both
224 /etc/init.d/bootmisc and /etc/init.d/keymaps to be quiet on no
225 errors.

228
229 2 Feb 2002: Martin Schlemmer (azarah@gentoo.org): updated /etc/net.eth0
230 to specify the gateway device via the $gateway variable (something like
231 gateway="eth0/192.168.0.1").
232
233 2 Feb 2002: Martin Schlemmer (azarah@gentoo.org): added rc-script
234 /etc/init.d/numlock, for enabling numlock at boot.
235
236 29 Jan 2002: Martin Schlemmer (azarah@gentoo.org): hopefully the
237 last fix to /etc/init.d/netmount to umount cleanly. This fix
238 implements a retry if not successful the first time, and will
239 kill processess using the mount. Also small type-o fix to
240 /etc/init.d/halt.sh.
241
242 27 Jan 2002: Donny Davies (woodchip@gentoo.org): security fix to
243 /etc/pam.d/sshd,login,chsh: added pam_shells.so to the stack.
