5 23 April 2002; Martin Schlemmer <azarah@gentoo.org>:
6
7 Remove creation of /var/run/utmpx from bootmisc again. Seems
8 other people have wierd problems.
9
10* rc-scripts 1.3.4 (21 April 2002)
11
12 21 April 2002; Martin Schlemmer <azarah@gentoo.org>:
13
14 Add /sbin/rc-envupdate.sh to speedup updating of /etc/profile.env,
15 and /etc/csh.env. Update /etc/init.d/bootmisc to use this.
16
17 Implement the status commandline argument. Updated /sbin/runscript.sh
18 and /sbin/rc-help.sh for this.
19
20 Fix /sbin/depscan.sh to honour NEED and USE overriding BEFORE
21 and AFTER.
22
23 12 April 2002; Martin Schlemmer <azarah@gentoo.org>:
24
25 Update /etc/init.d/bootmisc to create /var/run/utmpx. This
26 is needed, else /usr/bin/newgrp segfault.
27
28 11 April 2002; Martin Schlemmer <azarah@gentoo.org>:
29
30 Update /etc/skel/.bash_profile to make it tcsh compadible.
31 Thanks to Väinö Järvelä for this fix.
32
33 Update /etc/profile to also set the PS? variables if $SHELL
34 is set to /bin/sh. This should make prompt colours in
35 bootstrap work again.
36
37 Move LVM stuff to checkfs to ensure that they get fscked.
38 This resolves bug #1552.
39
40* rc-scripts 1.3.3 (5 April 2002)
41
42 5 April 2002; Martin Schlemmer <azarah@gentoo.org>:
43
44 Move /etc/init.d/{depscan.sh,runscript.sh,functions.sh} to /sbin.
45 This is done to try and ensure system integrity.
46
47 1 April 2002; Martin Schlemmer <azarah@gentoo.org>:
48
49 Add quotes to the "export INPUTRC=/etc/inputrc" line to resolve bug #1391.
50
51 Add a error message to /etc/init.d/consolefont, resolving bug #1415.
52
53 Add a bash check to the code that sets the prompt, fixing bug #1078.
54
55* rc-scripts 1.3.2 (24 Mar 2002)
56
57 24 March 2002; Martin Schlemmer <azarah@gentoo.org>:
58
59 Resolve bug #1274. Updated /etc/init.d/hostname and /etc/init.d/bootmisc
60 for this.
61
62 With the "before" and "after" stuff, recursion levels was getting too high,
63 and with some cases, things just plain did not work as it should. Reworked
64 things to to lower the levels of recursion and get the order right. Updated
65 /etc/init.d/runscript.sh for this.
66
67 Fixed a problem in /sbin/rc and /etc/init.d/runscript.sh where
68 ${svcdir}/softlevel did not always exist, but runscript.sh tried to open it.
69
70 Enhance --quiet support. Updated /etc/init.d/functions.sh for this.
71
72 Remove /etc/pwdb.conf, as pwdb already install a copy of this.
73
74 Remove /etc/pam.d/{rexec,rlogin,rsh} as pam already install this.
75
76 Added $INPUTRC to /etc/profile, since too many people keep on bugging me,
77 and it seems it has fallen now to my discression.
78
79* rc-scripts 1.3.1 (23 Mar 2002)
80
81 23 March 2002; Daniel Robbins <drobbins@gentoo.org>: init.d/net.eth0: fix for
82 DHCP lease release from Jim Nutt.
83
84 23 March 2002; Daniel Robbins <drobbins@gentoo.org>: rolling a new release
85 since there are a lot of important bug fixes in here that are needed.
86
87 23 March 2002; Martin Schlemmer <azarah@gentoo.org>:
88
89 Resolve bug #1292.
90
91 Remove the extra 'depmod -a' in /etc/init.d/modules, thanks to
92 Spidler.
93
94 21 March 2002; Martin Schlemmer <azarah@gentoo.org>:
95
96 Update /sbin/rc to fix a 'cat mounts' instead of the correct
97 version, 'cat /proc/mounts'.
98
99 19 March 2002; Martin Schlemmer <azarah@gentoo.org>:
100
101 Add initial support for the --quiet flag that suppress output.
102
103 18 March 2002; Martin Schlemmer <azarah@gentoo.org>:
104
105 Remove the 'try' from 'try /etc/init.d/depscan.sh' in /sbin/rc
106 as not all errors by depscan.sh is critical. It should be
107 reworked to do better error handeling.
108
109 14 March 2002; Martin Schlemmer <azarah@gentoo.org>:
110
111 Fix the GID and UID of nobody and nogroup in /etc/passwd and
112 /etc/group to match those of Debian, FBSD and others. Thanks
113 to those who reported it, and Woodchip for looking up the
114 proper values.
115
116 Update /etc/init.d/net.eth0 to properly down DHCP interfaces.
117 This resolves bug #1150, thanks to Paul Fleischer.
118
119 11 March 2002; Martin Schlemmer <azarah@gentoo.org>:
120
121 Updated /etc/init.d/functions.sh not to use /usr/bin/basename,
122 as some users have /usr on seperate partition which is not
123 mounted when depscan.sh is run the first time.
124
125 Updated the checking for more than one service providing the
126 same virtual function in /etc/init.d/depscan.sh. It should
127 be working now, and this also fix a problem that when there is no
128 service providing a virtual, counter was used uninitialized.
129
130* rc-scripts 1.3.0 (10 March 2002)
131
132 10 March 2002; Martin Schlemmer <azarah@gentoo.org>: Resolved
133 bug #1021; updated /etc/init.d/consolefont for this.
134
135 Resolved bug #1029; updated /etc/init.d/net.eth0 for this.
136
137 Resolved bug #990; updated /etc/init.d/net.eth0, /etc/init.d/netmount
138 and /etc/init.d/localmount for this.
139
140 Lots of form/syntax cleanups, most things should be more
141 consistant now. Fixed fail detection/return values of lots of
142 scripts.
143
144 Lots of cleanup/fixes in the three main scripts behind our
145 rc-system, /sbin/rc, /etc/init.d/depscan.sh, /etc/init.d/runscript.sh
146
147 Fix a bug regarding a invalid $PATH for portage if /etc/init.d/functions.sh
148 is sourced in a ebuild.
149
150 Fix a bug that our rc-script wrapper introduced: Global variables
151 in scripts no longer worked. Updated /etc/init.d/runscript.sh for
152 this.
153
154 Implemented more error checking for the main startup code in /sbin/rc.
155 Also fixed try() for mounting /proc (maybe all mount commands).
156 The function worked fine in a simulated test, but in real life failed
157 to detect a error when mounting /proc (remember to thank Grant for
158 his UserMode ebuilds, and Guide).
159
160* rc-scripts 1.2.9 (6 March 2002)
161
162 6 March 2002; Martin Schlemmer <azarah@gentoo.org>: General form
163 updates and some piping fixes.
164
165 Updated /etc/inittab, /etc/init.d/xdm and /etc/X11/startDM.sh
166 to fix a problem where startDM.sh would be respawned repeatedly
167 if xdm was not in the default runlevel.
168
169* rc-scripts 1.2.8 (4 March 2002)
170
171 4 March 2002; Martin Schlemmer <azarah@gentoo.org>: add /etc/init.d/xdm,
172 /etc/X11/startDM.sh and updated /etc/inittab to fix the "dead key"
173 problem we had with xdm/gdm/kdm. We should move them to the
174 xfree ebuild later on when things settles down.
175
176 Added some sanity checks to /sbin/rc, /etc/init.d/runscripts.sh.
177
178 Added a basic $PATH to /etc/init.d/functions.sh to fix a problem
179 where we had a invalid $PATH on boot in some cases.
180
181 Updated /etc/init.d/keymap and /etc/init.d/consolefont to work with
182 the new sys-apps/kbd package.
183
184* rc-scripts 1.2.7 (3 March 2002)
185
186 3 March 2002; Martin Schlemmer <azarah@gentoo.org>: fixed the problem
187 of rc-scripts trying to start/stop a service multiple times if it
188 fails to do so. Updated /etc/init.d/runscript.sh and /sbin/rc for
189 this.
190
191 Fixing some variable declarations in /etc/init.d/runscript.sh caused
192 /etc/init.d/net.lo to fail on stop ($IFACE was set invalid). Fixed
193 this.
194
195 Added caching of the "depend() { need foo; } " lines, and updated
196 /etc/init.d/depscan.sh to touch the actual files less. This should
197 speedup dependancy caching a lot, especially on slow machines.
198
199 Updated /etc/passwd to have users with no shell defined, use /bin/false
200 for security.
201
202 Update /etc/fstab to mention /dev/shm since we dont mount it anymore.
203
204 1 March 2002; Martin Schlemmer <azarah@gentoo.org>: added a wrapper for
205 sourcing the rc-scripts to eliminate syntax errors. Thanks to
206 Karl Trygve Kalleberg (aka karltk) for the idea. Updated
207 /etc/init.d/depscan.sh, /etc/init.d/functions.sh and
208 /etc/init.d/runscript.sh for this (added wrap_rcscript() function).
209
210 Removed stopping of dependant services that have current service as
211 a 'use'dependancy ... should be less confusing now.
212 Updated /etc/init.d/runscript.sh for this.
213
214 28 Feb 2002; Martin Schlemmer <azarah@gentoo.org>: add /etc/conf.d/local.start
215 and /etc/conf.d/local.stop for adding any misc programs to startup. This
216 should pretty much have /etc/init.d/ static, except for baselayout updates,
217 etc.
218
219 27 Feb 2002; Martin Schlemmer <azarah@gentoo.org>: in some wierd cases,
220 a redundent /dev/.devfsd on a unmounted /dev can cause problems. Fixed
221 this in /sbin/rc.
222
223 Added the patches from Grant Goodyear (aka g2boojum) to enable us to
224 use a ramdisk to store the contents of ${svcdir}. Updated /sbin/rc,
225 /etc/init.d/functions.sh and /etc/init.d/checkroot for this.
226
227 26 Feb 2002; Martin Schlemmer <azarah@gentoo.org>: fix my brain dead
228 update of the 25th. It really should keep "gentoo=nodevfs" in mind.
229 Also added 'get_bootparam()' to help in retrieving kernel options.
230 Updated /etc/init.d/functions.sh, /etc/init.d/checkroot and /sbin/rc
231 for this.
232
233 Updated /etc/init.d/consolefont to work without devfs as well.
234
235 When rebooting or shutting down, a service should not fail to stop
236 if a service it depends on, fails. Updated /etc/init.d/runscript.sh
237 for this.
238
239 25 Feb 2002; Martin Schlemmer <azarah@gentoo.org>: added a check if
240 /dev is mounted when creating entries for /etc/mtab. This should solve a
241 invalid entry or /dev being mounted even with 'gentoo=nodevfs' option.
242 Updated /etc/init.d/checkroot for this.
243
244 17 Feb 2002: Daniel Robbins <drobbins@gentoo.org>: Made "xfs" the default
245 filesystem in /etc/fstab (from ReiserFS) and removed "notail" option (it's
246 just in a comment now)
247
248 17 Feb 2002: Martin Schlemmer (azarah@gentoo.org): more fixes to 'after' and
249 'before', updated /etc/init.d/runscript.sh for this. This should fix
250 services not getting started in the correct order in a tight loop, services
251 getting stopped out of order, and some other sanity checks. Updated
252 rc-script.sh for updated help.
253
254 15 Feb 2002: Martin Schlemmer (azarah@gentoo.org): update /etc/profile to
255 resolve bug #588. Reimplemented things a bit, and added the 'after' type.
256 'before' and 'after' will only work currently for a change of runlevel.
257 Updated /etc/init.d/depscan.sh, /etc/init.d/runscript.sh and /sbin/rc for it.
258
259 13 Feb 2002: Martin Schlemmer (azarah@gentoo.org): add some more entries to
260 /etc/devfsd.conf to make alsa users life easier ... thanks Tod.
261
262 12 Feb 2002: Martin Schlemmer (azarah@gentoo.org): Some more cleanups to
263 /etc/init.d/depscan.sh and /etc/init.d/runscript.sh.
264
265 Fixed some services not starting again when restarting a service.
266 Seems simple is still the best way.
267
268 Fixed some other problems created with feature additions and cleanups.
269
270 11 Feb 2002: Martin Schlemmer (azarah@gentoo.org): General cleanups to
271 /etc/init.d/depscan.sh and /etc/init.d/runscript.sh.
272
273 Added 'before *' to /etc/init.d/checkroot to make sure it gets
274 started first.
275
276 Added 'use *' to /etc/init.d/local to make sure it gets started
277 last.
278
279 10 Feb 2002: Martin Schlemmer (azarah@gentoo.org): Fixed /sbin/rc
280 to stop a service on change of runlevel if it is in 'use' by
281 another service.
282
283 Added the 'provide' depend type for creating virtual services.
284 Updated /etc/init.d/depscan.sh for this.
285
286 Added the 'before' depend type. This is more for changing the
287 order services start in. Updated /etc/init.d/depscan.sh and
288 /etc/init.d/functions.sh for this.
289
290 Updated /etc/init.d/depscan.sh to work with '*' as argument for
291 dependancy types. This can be used with 'use' and 'before' to
292 start a script last or first respectively.
293
294 Added save_options() and get_options() to /etc/init.d/functions.sh
295 for saving misc settings between startup/shutdown. Updated
296 /etc/init.d/net.eth0 to use these and properly down virtual
297 interfaces.
298
299 6 Feb 2002: Martin Schlemmer (azarah@gentoo.org): updated both
300 /etc/init.d/bootmisc and /etc/init.d/keymaps to be quiet on no
301 errors.
302
303* rc-scripts 1.2.6 (6 Feb 2002)
304
305 2 Feb 2002: Martin Schlemmer (azarah@gentoo.org): updated /etc/net.eth0
306 to specify the gateway device via the $gateway variable (something like
307 gateway="eth0/192.168.0.1").
308
309 2 Feb 2002: Martin Schlemmer (azarah@gentoo.org): added rc-script
310 /etc/init.d/numlock, for enabling numlock at boot.
311
312 29 Jan 2002: Martin Schlemmer (azarah@gentoo.org): hopefully the
313 last fix to /etc/init.d/netmount to umount cleanly. This fix
314 implements a retry if not successful the first time, and will
315 kill processess using the mount. Also small type-o fix to
316 /etc/init.d/halt.sh.
317
318 27 Jan 2002: Donny Davies (woodchip@gentoo.org): security fix to
319 /etc/pam.d/sshd,login,chsh: added pam_shells.so to the stack.
320 Fixed /etc/passwd,group for user/group mysql.
321
322 27 Jan 2002: Martin Schlemmer (azarah@gentoo.org): added charset
323 map file support to /etc/init.d/consolefont and the setting to
324 /etc/rc.conf.

9 in the restart stuff of /etc/init.d/runscript.sh that caused 330 in the restart stuff of /etc/init.d/runscript.sh that caused
10 a restart of a 'net' service not to restart services again 331 a restart of a 'net' service not to restart services again
11 that depended on it. 332 that depended on it.
12
13 Change the way /etc/mtab is created in /etc/init.d/checkroot to
14 be more generic.
15 333
16* rc-scripts 1.2.5 (20 Jan 2002) 334* rc-scripts 1.2.5 (20 Jan 2002)
