5* rc-scripts 1.3.4 (21 April 2002)
6
7 21 April 2002; Martin Schlemmer <azarah@gentoo.org>:
8
9 Add /sbin/rc-envupdate.sh to speedup updating of /etc/profile.env,
10 and /etc/csh.env. Update /etc/init.d/bootmisc to use this.
11
12 12 April 2002; Martin Schlemmer <azarah@gentoo.org>:
13
14 Update /etc/init.d/bootmisc to create /var/run/utmpx. This
15 is needed, else /usr/bin/newgrp segfault.
16
17 11 April 2002; Martin Schlemmer <azarah@gentoo.org>:
18
19 Update /etc/skel/.bash_profile to make it tcsh compadible.
20 Thanks to Väinö Järvelä for this fix.
21
22 Update /etc/profile to also set the PS? variables if $SHELL
23 is set to /bin/sh. This should make prompt colours in
24 bootstrap work again.
25
26 Move LVM stuff to checkfs to ensure that they get fscked.
27 This resolves bug #1552.
28
29* rc-scripts 1.3.3 (5 April 2002)
30
31 5 April 2002; Martin Schlemmer <azarah@gentoo.org>:
32
33 Move /etc/init.d/{depscan.sh,runscript.sh,functions.sh} to /sbin.
34 This is done to try and ensure system integrity.
35
36 1 April 2002; Martin Schlemmer <azarah@gentoo.org>:
37
38 Add quotes to the "export INPUTRC=/etc/inputrc" line to resolve bug #1391.
39
40 Add a error message to /etc/init.d/consolefont, resolving bug #1415.
41
42 Add a bash check to the code that sets the prompt, fixing bug #1078.
43
44* rc-scripts 1.3.2 (24 Mar 2002)
45
46 24 March 2002; Martin Schlemmer <azarah@gentoo.org>:
47
48 Resolve bug #1274. Updated /etc/init.d/hostname and /etc/init.d/bootmisc
49 for this.
50
51 With the "before" and "after" stuff, recursion levels was getting too high,
52 and with some cases, things just plain did not work as it should. Reworked
53 things to to lower the levels of recursion and get the order right. Updated
54 /etc/init.d/runscript.sh for this.
55
56 Fixed a problem in /sbin/rc and /etc/init.d/runscript.sh where
57 ${svcdir}/softlevel did not always exist, but runscript.sh tried to open it.
58
59 Enhance --quiet support. Updated /etc/init.d/functions.sh for this.
60
61 Remove /etc/pwdb.conf, as pwdb already install a copy of this.
62
63 Remove /etc/pam.d/{rexec,rlogin,rsh} as pam already install this.
64
65 Added $INPUTRC to /etc/profile, since too many people keep on bugging me,
66 and it seems it has fallen now to my discression.
67
68* rc-scripts 1.3.1 (23 Mar 2002)
69
70 23 March 2002; Daniel Robbins <drobbins@gentoo.org>: init.d/net.eth0: fix for
71 DHCP lease release from Jim Nutt.
72
73 23 March 2002; Daniel Robbins <drobbins@gentoo.org>: rolling a new release
74 since there are a lot of important bug fixes in here that are needed.
75
76 23 March 2002; Martin Schlemmer <azarah@gentoo.org>:
77
78 Resolve bug #1292.
79
80 Remove the extra 'depmod -a' in /etc/init.d/modules, thanks to
81 Spidler.
82
83 21 March 2002; Martin Schlemmer <azarah@gentoo.org>:
84
85 Update /sbin/rc to fix a 'cat mounts' instead of the correct
86 version, 'cat /proc/mounts'.
87
88 19 March 2002; Martin Schlemmer <azarah@gentoo.org>:
89
90 Add initial support for the --quiet flag that suppress output.
91
92 18 March 2002; Martin Schlemmer <azarah@gentoo.org>:
93
94 Remove the 'try' from 'try /etc/init.d/depscan.sh' in /sbin/rc
95 as not all errors by depscan.sh is critical. It should be
96 reworked to do better error handeling.
97
98 14 March 2002; Martin Schlemmer <azarah@gentoo.org>:
99
100 Fix the GID and UID of nobody and nogroup in /etc/passwd and
101 /etc/group to match those of Debian, FBSD and others. Thanks
102 to those who reported it, and Woodchip for looking up the
103 proper values.
104
105 Update /etc/init.d/net.eth0 to properly down DHCP interfaces.
106 This resolves bug #1150, thanks to Paul Fleischer.
107
108 11 March 2002; Martin Schlemmer <azarah@gentoo.org>:
109
110 Updated /etc/init.d/functions.sh not to use /usr/bin/basename,
111 as some users have /usr on seperate partition which is not
112 mounted when depscan.sh is run the first time.
113
114 Updated the checking for more than one service providing the
115 same virtual function in /etc/init.d/depscan.sh. It should
116 be working now, and this also fix a problem that when there is no
117 service providing a virtual, counter was used uninitialized.
118
119* rc-scripts 1.3.0 (10 March 2002)
120
121 10 March 2002; Martin Schlemmer <azarah@gentoo.org>: Resolved
122 bug #1021; updated /etc/init.d/consolefont for this.
123
124 Resolved bug #1029; updated /etc/init.d/net.eth0 for this.
125
126 Resolved bug #990; updated /etc/init.d/net.eth0, /etc/init.d/netmount
127 and /etc/init.d/localmount for this.
128
129 Lots of form/syntax cleanups, most things should be more
130 consistant now. Fixed fail detection/return values of lots of
131 scripts.
132
133 Lots of cleanup/fixes in the three main scripts behind our
134 rc-system, /sbin/rc, /etc/init.d/depscan.sh, /etc/init.d/runscript.sh
135
136 Fix a bug regarding a invalid $PATH for portage if /etc/init.d/functions.sh
137 is sourced in a ebuild.
138
139 Fix a bug that our rc-script wrapper introduced: Global variables
140 in scripts no longer worked. Updated /etc/init.d/runscript.sh for
141 this.
142
143 Implemented more error checking for the main startup code in /sbin/rc.
144 Also fixed try() for mounting /proc (maybe all mount commands).
145 The function worked fine in a simulated test, but in real life failed
146 to detect a error when mounting /proc (remember to thank Grant for
147 his UserMode ebuilds, and Guide).
148
149* rc-scripts 1.2.9 (6 March 2002)
150
151 6 March 2002; Martin Schlemmer <azarah@gentoo.org>: General form
152 updates and some piping fixes.
153
154 Updated /etc/inittab, /etc/init.d/xdm and /etc/X11/startDM.sh
155 to fix a problem where startDM.sh would be respawned repeatedly
156 if xdm was not in the default runlevel.
157
158* rc-scripts 1.2.8 (4 March 2002)
159
160 4 March 2002; Martin Schlemmer <azarah@gentoo.org>: add /etc/init.d/xdm,
161 /etc/X11/startDM.sh and updated /etc/inittab to fix the "dead key"
162 problem we had with xdm/gdm/kdm. We should move them to the
163 xfree ebuild later on when things settles down.
164
165 Added some sanity checks to /sbin/rc, /etc/init.d/runscripts.sh.
166
167 Added a basic $PATH to /etc/init.d/functions.sh to fix a problem
168 where we had a invalid $PATH on boot in some cases.
169
170 Updated /etc/init.d/keymap and /etc/init.d/consolefont to work with
171 the new sys-apps/kbd package.
172
173* rc-scripts 1.2.7 (3 March 2002)
174
175 3 March 2002; Martin Schlemmer <azarah@gentoo.org>: fixed the problem
176 of rc-scripts trying to start/stop a service multiple times if it
177 fails to do so. Updated /etc/init.d/runscript.sh and /sbin/rc for
178 this.
179
180 Fixing some variable declarations in /etc/init.d/runscript.sh caused
181 /etc/init.d/net.lo to fail on stop ($IFACE was set invalid). Fixed
182 this.
183
184 Added caching of the "depend() { need foo; } " lines, and updated
185 /etc/init.d/depscan.sh to touch the actual files less. This should
186 speedup dependancy caching a lot, especially on slow machines.
187
188 Updated /etc/passwd to have users with no shell defined, use /bin/false
189 for security.
190
191 Update /etc/fstab to mention /dev/shm since we dont mount it anymore.
192
193 1 March 2002; Martin Schlemmer <azarah@gentoo.org>: added a wrapper for
194 sourcing the rc-scripts to eliminate syntax errors. Thanks to
195 Karl Trygve Kalleberg (aka karltk) for the idea. Updated
196 /etc/init.d/depscan.sh, /etc/init.d/functions.sh and
197 /etc/init.d/runscript.sh for this (added wrap_rcscript() function).
198
199 Removed stopping of dependant services that have current service as
200 a 'use'dependancy ... should be less confusing now.
201 Updated /etc/init.d/runscript.sh for this.
202
203 28 Feb 2002; Martin Schlemmer <azarah@gentoo.org>: add /etc/conf.d/local.start
204 and /etc/conf.d/local.stop for adding any misc programs to startup. This
205 should pretty much have /etc/init.d/ static, except for baselayout updates,
206 etc.
207
208 27 Feb 2002; Martin Schlemmer <azarah@gentoo.org>: in some wierd cases,
209 a redundent /dev/.devfsd on a unmounted /dev can cause problems. Fixed
210 this in /sbin/rc.
211
212 Added the patches from Grant Goodyear (aka g2boojum) to enable us to
213 use a ramdisk to store the contents of ${svcdir}. Updated /sbin/rc,
214 /etc/init.d/functions.sh and /etc/init.d/checkroot for this.
215
216 26 Feb 2002; Martin Schlemmer <azarah@gentoo.org>: fix my brain dead
217 update of the 25th. It really should keep "gentoo=nodevfs" in mind.
218 Also added 'get_bootparam()' to help in retrieving kernel options.
219 Updated /etc/init.d/functions.sh, /etc/init.d/checkroot and /sbin/rc
220 for this.
221
222 Updated /etc/init.d/consolefont to work without devfs as well.
223
224 When rebooting or shutting down, a service should not fail to stop
225 if a service it depends on, fails. Updated /etc/init.d/runscript.sh
226 for this.
227
228 25 Feb 2002; Martin Schlemmer <azarah@gentoo.org>: added a check if
229 /dev is mounted when creating entries for /etc/mtab. This should solve a
230 invalid entry or /dev being mounted even with 'gentoo=nodevfs' option.
231 Updated /etc/init.d/checkroot for this.
232
233 17 Feb 2002: Daniel Robbins <drobbins@gentoo.org>: Made "xfs" the default
234 filesystem in /etc/fstab (from ReiserFS) and removed "notail" option (it's
235 just in a comment now)
236
237 17 Feb 2002: Martin Schlemmer (azarah@gentoo.org): more fixes to 'after' and
238 'before', updated /etc/init.d/runscript.sh for this. This should fix
239 services not getting started in the correct order in a tight loop, services
240 getting stopped out of order, and some other sanity checks. Updated
241 rc-script.sh for updated help.
242
243 15 Feb 2002: Martin Schlemmer (azarah@gentoo.org): update /etc/profile to
244 resolve bug #588. Reimplemented things a bit, and added the 'after' type.
245 'before' and 'after' will only work currently for a change of runlevel.
246 Updated /etc/init.d/depscan.sh, /etc/init.d/runscript.sh and /sbin/rc for it.
247
248 13 Feb 2002: Martin Schlemmer (azarah@gentoo.org): add some more entries to
249 /etc/devfsd.conf to make alsa users life easier ... thanks Tod.
250
251 12 Feb 2002: Martin Schlemmer (azarah@gentoo.org): Some more cleanups to
252 /etc/init.d/depscan.sh and /etc/init.d/runscript.sh.
253
254 Fixed some services not starting again when restarting a service.
255 Seems simple is still the best way.
256
257 Fixed some other problems created with feature additions and cleanups.
258
259 11 Feb 2002: Martin Schlemmer (azarah@gentoo.org): General cleanups to
260 /etc/init.d/depscan.sh and /etc/init.d/runscript.sh.
261
262 Added 'before *' to /etc/init.d/checkroot to make sure it gets
263 started first.
264
265 Added 'use *' to /etc/init.d/local to make sure it gets started
266 last.
267
268 10 Feb 2002: Martin Schlemmer (azarah@gentoo.org): Fixed /sbin/rc
269 to stop a service on change of runlevel if it is in 'use' by
270 another service.
271
272 Added the 'provide' depend type for creating virtual services.
273 Updated /etc/init.d/depscan.sh for this.
274
275 Added the 'before' depend type. This is more for changing the
276 order services start in. Updated /etc/init.d/depscan.sh and
277 /etc/init.d/functions.sh for this.
278
279 Updated /etc/init.d/depscan.sh to work with '*' as argument for
280 dependancy types. This can be used with 'use' and 'before' to
281 start a script last or first respectively.
282
283 Added save_options() and get_options() to /etc/init.d/functions.sh
284 for saving misc settings between startup/shutdown. Updated
285 /etc/init.d/net.eth0 to use these and properly down virtual
286 interfaces.
287
288 6 Feb 2002: Martin Schlemmer (azarah@gentoo.org): updated both
289 /etc/init.d/bootmisc and /etc/init.d/keymaps to be quiet on no
290 errors.
291

293
294 2 Feb 2002: Martin Schlemmer (azarah@gentoo.org): updated /etc/net.eth0
295 to specify the gateway device via the $gateway variable (something like
296 gateway="eth0/192.168.0.1").
297
298 2 Feb 2002: Martin Schlemmer (azarah@gentoo.org): added rc-script
299 /etc/init.d/numlock, for enabling numlock at boot.
300
301 29 Jan 2002: Martin Schlemmer (azarah@gentoo.org): hopefully the
302 last fix to /etc/init.d/netmount to umount cleanly. This fix
303 implements a retry if not successful the first time, and will
304 kill processess using the mount. Also small type-o fix to
305 /etc/init.d/halt.sh.
306
307 27 Jan 2002: Donny Davies (woodchip@gentoo.org): security fix to
308 /etc/pam.d/sshd,login,chsh: added pam_shells.so to the stack.
309 Fixed /etc/passwd,group for user/group mysql.
310
311 27 Jan 2002: Martin Schlemmer (azarah@gentoo.org): added charset

9 in the restart stuff of /etc/init.d/runscript.sh that caused 319 in the restart stuff of /etc/init.d/runscript.sh that caused
10 a restart of a 'net' service not to restart services again 320 a restart of a 'net' service not to restart services again
11 that depended on it. 321 that depended on it.
12
13 Change the way /etc/mtab is created in /etc/init.d/checkroot to
14 be more generic.
15 322
16* rc-scripts 1.2.5 (20 Jan 2002) 323* rc-scripts 1.2.5 (20 Jan 2002)
