5 11 April 2002; Martin Schlemmer <azarah@gentoo.org>:
6
7 Update /etc/skel/.bash_profile to make it tcsh compadible.
8 Thanks to Väinö Järvelä for this fix.
9
10 Update /etc/profile to also set the PS? variables if $SHELL
11 is set to /bin/sh. This should make prompt colours in
12 bootstrap work again.
13
14 Move LVM stuff to checkfs to ensure that they get fscked.
15 This resolves bug #1552.
16
17* rc-scripts 1.3.3 (5 April 2002)
18
19 5 April 2002; Martin Schlemmer <azarah@gentoo.org>:
20
21 Move /etc/init.d/{depscan.sh,runscript.sh,functions.sh} to /sbin.
22 This is done to try and ensure system integrity.
23
24 1 April 2002; Martin Schlemmer <azarah@gentoo.org>:
25
26 Add quotes to the "export INPUTRC=/etc/inputrc" line to resolve bug #1391.
27
28 Add a error message to /etc/init.d/consolefont, resolving bug #1415.
29
30 Add a bash check to the code that sets the prompt, fixing bug #1078.
31
32* rc-scripts 1.3.2 (24 Mar 2002)
33
34 24 March 2002; Martin Schlemmer <azarah@gentoo.org>:
35
36 Resolve bug #1274. Updated /etc/init.d/hostname and /etc/init.d/bootmisc
37 for this.
38
39 With the "before" and "after" stuff, recursion levels was getting too high,
40 and with some cases, things just plain did not work as it should. Reworked
41 things to to lower the levels of recursion and get the order right. Updated
42 /etc/init.d/runscript.sh for this.
43
44 Fixed a problem in /sbin/rc and /etc/init.d/runscript.sh where
45 ${svcdir}/softlevel did not always exist, but runscript.sh tried to open it.
46
47 Enhance --quiet support. Updated /etc/init.d/functions.sh for this.
48
49 Remove /etc/pwdb.conf, as pwdb already install a copy of this.
50
51 Remove /etc/pam.d/{rexec,rlogin,rsh} as pam already install this.
52
53 Added $INPUTRC to /etc/profile, since too many people keep on bugging me,
54 and it seems it has fallen now to my discression.
55
56* rc-scripts 1.3.1 (23 Mar 2002)
57
58 23 March 2002; Daniel Robbins <drobbins@gentoo.org>: init.d/net.eth0: fix for
59 DHCP lease release from Jim Nutt.
60
61 23 March 2002; Daniel Robbins <drobbins@gentoo.org>: rolling a new release
62 since there are a lot of important bug fixes in here that are needed.
63
64 23 March 2002; Martin Schlemmer <azarah@gentoo.org>:
65
66 Resolve bug #1292.
67
68 Remove the extra 'depmod -a' in /etc/init.d/modules, thanks to
69 Spidler.
70
71 21 March 2002; Martin Schlemmer <azarah@gentoo.org>:
72
73 Update /sbin/rc to fix a 'cat mounts' instead of the correct
74 version, 'cat /proc/mounts'.
75
76 19 March 2002; Martin Schlemmer <azarah@gentoo.org>:
77
78 Add initial support for the --quiet flag that suppress output.
79
80 18 March 2002; Martin Schlemmer <azarah@gentoo.org>:
81
82 Remove the 'try' from 'try /etc/init.d/depscan.sh' in /sbin/rc
83 as not all errors by depscan.sh is critical. It should be
84 reworked to do better error handeling.
85
86 14 March 2002; Martin Schlemmer <azarah@gentoo.org>:
87
88 Fix the GID and UID of nobody and nogroup in /etc/passwd and
89 /etc/group to match those of Debian, FBSD and others. Thanks
90 to those who reported it, and Woodchip for looking up the
91 proper values.
92
93 Update /etc/init.d/net.eth0 to properly down DHCP interfaces.
94 This resolves bug #1150, thanks to Paul Fleischer.
95
96 11 March 2002; Martin Schlemmer <azarah@gentoo.org>:
97
98 Updated /etc/init.d/functions.sh not to use /usr/bin/basename,
99 as some users have /usr on seperate partition which is not
100 mounted when depscan.sh is run the first time.
101
102 Updated the checking for more than one service providing the
103 same virtual function in /etc/init.d/depscan.sh. It should
104 be working now, and this also fix a problem that when there is no
105 service providing a virtual, counter was used uninitialized.
106
107* rc-scripts 1.3.0 (10 March 2002)
108
109 10 March 2002; Martin Schlemmer <azarah@gentoo.org>: Resolved
110 bug #1021; updated /etc/init.d/consolefont for this.
111
112 Resolved bug #1029; updated /etc/init.d/net.eth0 for this.
113
114 Resolved bug #990; updated /etc/init.d/net.eth0, /etc/init.d/netmount
115 and /etc/init.d/localmount for this.
116
117 Lots of form/syntax cleanups, most things should be more
118 consistant now. Fixed fail detection/return values of lots of
119 scripts.
120
121 Lots of cleanup/fixes in the three main scripts behind our
122 rc-system, /sbin/rc, /etc/init.d/depscan.sh, /etc/init.d/runscript.sh
123
124 Fix a bug regarding a invalid $PATH for portage if /etc/init.d/functions.sh
125 is sourced in a ebuild.
126
127 Fix a bug that our rc-script wrapper introduced: Global variables
128 in scripts no longer worked. Updated /etc/init.d/runscript.sh for
129 this.
130
131 Implemented more error checking for the main startup code in /sbin/rc.
132 Also fixed try() for mounting /proc (maybe all mount commands).
133 The function worked fine in a simulated test, but in real life failed
134 to detect a error when mounting /proc (remember to thank Grant for
135 his UserMode ebuilds, and Guide).
136
137* rc-scripts 1.2.9 (6 March 2002)
138
139 6 March 2002; Martin Schlemmer <azarah@gentoo.org>: General form
140 updates and some piping fixes.
141
142 Updated /etc/inittab, /etc/init.d/xdm and /etc/X11/startDM.sh
143 to fix a problem where startDM.sh would be respawned repeatedly
144 if xdm was not in the default runlevel.
145
146* rc-scripts 1.2.8 (4 March 2002)
147
148 4 March 2002; Martin Schlemmer <azarah@gentoo.org>: add /etc/init.d/xdm,
149 /etc/X11/startDM.sh and updated /etc/inittab to fix the "dead key"
150 problem we had with xdm/gdm/kdm. We should move them to the
151 xfree ebuild later on when things settles down.
152
153 Added some sanity checks to /sbin/rc, /etc/init.d/runscripts.sh.
154
155 Added a basic $PATH to /etc/init.d/functions.sh to fix a problem
156 where we had a invalid $PATH on boot in some cases.
157
158 Updated /etc/init.d/keymap and /etc/init.d/consolefont to work with
159 the new sys-apps/kbd package.
160
161* rc-scripts 1.2.7 (3 March 2002)
162
163 3 March 2002; Martin Schlemmer <azarah@gentoo.org>: fixed the problem
164 of rc-scripts trying to start/stop a service multiple times if it
165 fails to do so. Updated /etc/init.d/runscript.sh and /sbin/rc for
166 this.
167
168 Fixing some variable declarations in /etc/init.d/runscript.sh caused
169 /etc/init.d/net.lo to fail on stop ($IFACE was set invalid). Fixed
170 this.
171
172 Added caching of the "depend() { need foo; } " lines, and updated
173 /etc/init.d/depscan.sh to touch the actual files less. This should
174 speedup dependancy caching a lot, especially on slow machines.
175
176 Updated /etc/passwd to have users with no shell defined, use /bin/false
177 for security.
178
179 Update /etc/fstab to mention /dev/shm since we dont mount it anymore.
180
181 1 March 2002; Martin Schlemmer <azarah@gentoo.org>: added a wrapper for
182 sourcing the rc-scripts to eliminate syntax errors. Thanks to
183 Karl Trygve Kalleberg (aka karltk) for the idea. Updated
184 /etc/init.d/depscan.sh, /etc/init.d/functions.sh and
185 /etc/init.d/runscript.sh for this (added wrap_rcscript() function).
186
187 Removed stopping of dependant services that have current service as
188 a 'use'dependancy ... should be less confusing now.
189 Updated /etc/init.d/runscript.sh for this.
190
191 28 Feb 2002; Martin Schlemmer <azarah@gentoo.org>: add /etc/conf.d/local.start
192 and /etc/conf.d/local.stop for adding any misc programs to startup. This
193 should pretty much have /etc/init.d/ static, except for baselayout updates,
194 etc.
195
196 27 Feb 2002; Martin Schlemmer <azarah@gentoo.org>: in some wierd cases,
197 a redundent /dev/.devfsd on a unmounted /dev can cause problems. Fixed
198 this in /sbin/rc.
199
200 Added the patches from Grant Goodyear (aka g2boojum) to enable us to
201 use a ramdisk to store the contents of ${svcdir}. Updated /sbin/rc,
202 /etc/init.d/functions.sh and /etc/init.d/checkroot for this.
203
204 26 Feb 2002; Martin Schlemmer <azarah@gentoo.org>: fix my brain dead
205 update of the 25th. It really should keep "gentoo=nodevfs" in mind.
206 Also added 'get_bootparam()' to help in retrieving kernel options.
207 Updated /etc/init.d/functions.sh, /etc/init.d/checkroot and /sbin/rc
208 for this.
209
210 Updated /etc/init.d/consolefont to work without devfs as well.
211
212 When rebooting or shutting down, a service should not fail to stop
213 if a service it depends on, fails. Updated /etc/init.d/runscript.sh
214 for this.
215
216 25 Feb 2002; Martin Schlemmer <azarah@gentoo.org>: added a check if
217 /dev is mounted when creating entries for /etc/mtab. This should solve a
218 invalid entry or /dev being mounted even with 'gentoo=nodevfs' option.
219 Updated /etc/init.d/checkroot for this.
220
221 17 Feb 2002: Daniel Robbins <drobbins@gentoo.org>: Made "xfs" the default
222 filesystem in /etc/fstab (from ReiserFS) and removed "notail" option (it's
223 just in a comment now)
224
225 17 Feb 2002: Martin Schlemmer (azarah@gentoo.org): more fixes to 'after' and
226 'before', updated /etc/init.d/runscript.sh for this. This should fix
227 services not getting started in the correct order in a tight loop, services
228 getting stopped out of order, and some other sanity checks. Updated
229 rc-script.sh for updated help.
230
231 15 Feb 2002: Martin Schlemmer (azarah@gentoo.org): update /etc/profile to
232 resolve bug #588. Reimplemented things a bit, and added the 'after' type.
233 'before' and 'after' will only work currently for a change of runlevel.
234 Updated /etc/init.d/depscan.sh, /etc/init.d/runscript.sh and /sbin/rc for it.
235
236 13 Feb 2002: Martin Schlemmer (azarah@gentoo.org): add some more entries to
237 /etc/devfsd.conf to make alsa users life easier ... thanks Tod.
238
239 12 Feb 2002: Martin Schlemmer (azarah@gentoo.org): Some more cleanups to
240 /etc/init.d/depscan.sh and /etc/init.d/runscript.sh.
241
242 Fixed some services not starting again when restarting a service.
243 Seems simple is still the best way.
244
245 Fixed some other problems created with feature additions and cleanups.
246
247 11 Feb 2002: Martin Schlemmer (azarah@gentoo.org): General cleanups to
248 /etc/init.d/depscan.sh and /etc/init.d/runscript.sh.
249
250 Added 'before *' to /etc/init.d/checkroot to make sure it gets
251 started first.
252
253 Added 'use *' to /etc/init.d/local to make sure it gets started
254 last.
255
256 10 Feb 2002: Martin Schlemmer (azarah@gentoo.org): Fixed /sbin/rc
257 to stop a service on change of runlevel if it is in 'use' by
258 another service.
259
260 Added the 'provide' depend type for creating virtual services.
261 Updated /etc/init.d/depscan.sh for this.
262
263 Added the 'before' depend type. This is more for changing the
264 order services start in. Updated /etc/init.d/depscan.sh and
265 /etc/init.d/functions.sh for this.
266
267 Updated /etc/init.d/depscan.sh to work with '*' as argument for
268 dependancy types. This can be used with 'use' and 'before' to
269 start a script last or first respectively.
270
271 Added save_options() and get_options() to /etc/init.d/functions.sh
272 for saving misc settings between startup/shutdown. Updated
273 /etc/init.d/net.eth0 to use these and properly down virtual
274 interfaces.
275
276 6 Feb 2002: Martin Schlemmer (azarah@gentoo.org): updated both
277 /etc/init.d/bootmisc and /etc/init.d/keymaps to be quiet on no
278 errors.
279

281
282 2 Feb 2002: Martin Schlemmer (azarah@gentoo.org): updated /etc/net.eth0
283 to specify the gateway device via the $gateway variable (something like
284 gateway="eth0/192.168.0.1").
285
286 2 Feb 2002: Martin Schlemmer (azarah@gentoo.org): added rc-script
287 /etc/init.d/numlock, for enabling numlock at boot.
288
289 29 Jan 2002: Martin Schlemmer (azarah@gentoo.org): hopefully the
290 last fix to /etc/init.d/netmount to umount cleanly. This fix
291 implements a retry if not successful the first time, and will
292 kill processess using the mount. Also small type-o fix to
293 /etc/init.d/halt.sh.
294
295 27 Jan 2002: Donny Davies (woodchip@gentoo.org): security fix to
296 /etc/pam.d/sshd,login,chsh: added pam_shells.so to the stack.
297 Fixed /etc/passwd,group for user/group mysql.
298
299 27 Jan 2002: Martin Schlemmer (azarah@gentoo.org): added charset

9 in the restart stuff of /etc/init.d/runscript.sh that caused 307 in the restart stuff of /etc/init.d/runscript.sh that caused
10 a restart of a 'net' service not to restart services again 308 a restart of a 'net' service not to restart services again
11 that depended on it. 309 that depended on it.
12
13 Change the way /etc/mtab is created in /etc/init.d/checkroot to
14 be more generic.
15 310
