5 25 April 2002; Martin Schlemmer <azarah@gentoo.org>:
6
7 Remove the "-net" from the line setting the default gateway
8 in /etc/init.d/net.eth0. Thanks to Peter W. Michaleas for
9 noting this.
10
11 24 April 2002; Donny Davies <woodchip@gentoo.org> rc.conf :
12
13 Remove NFSSERVER from rc.conf since it's now covered in /etc/conf.d/nfs
14 which is installed with the nfs-utils package. Also tidied up some
15 really old, leftover junk like the non-supported stuff from rc5.
16 Closes #1754.
17
18 23 April 2002; Martin Schlemmer <azarah@gentoo.org>:
19
20 Remove creation of /var/run/utmpx from bootmisc again. Seems
21 other people have wierd problems.
22
23* rc-scripts 1.3.4 (21 April 2002)
24
25 21 April 2002; Martin Schlemmer <azarah@gentoo.org>:
26
27 Add /sbin/rc-envupdate.sh to speedup updating of /etc/profile.env,
28 and /etc/csh.env. Update /etc/init.d/bootmisc to use this.
29
30 Implement the status commandline argument. Updated /sbin/runscript.sh
31 and /sbin/rc-help.sh for this.
32
33 Fix /sbin/depscan.sh to honour NEED and USE overriding BEFORE
34 and AFTER.
35
36 12 April 2002; Martin Schlemmer <azarah@gentoo.org>:
37
38 Update /etc/init.d/bootmisc to create /var/run/utmpx. This

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

317
318 2 Feb 2002: Martin Schlemmer (azarah@gentoo.org): updated /etc/net.eth0
319 to specify the gateway device via the $gateway variable (something like
320 gateway="eth0/192.168.0.1").
321
322 2 Feb 2002: Martin Schlemmer (azarah@gentoo.org): added rc-script
323 /etc/init.d/numlock, for enabling numlock at boot.
324
325 29 Jan 2002: Martin Schlemmer (azarah@gentoo.org): hopefully the
326 last fix to /etc/init.d/netmount to umount cleanly. This fix
327 implements a retry if not successful the first time, and will
328 kill processess using the mount. Also small type-o fix to
329 /etc/init.d/halt.sh.
330
331 27 Jan 2002: Donny Davies (woodchip@gentoo.org): security fix to
332 /etc/pam.d/sshd,login,chsh: added pam_shells.so to the stack.
333 Fixed /etc/passwd,group for user/group mysql.
334
335 27 Jan 2002: Martin Schlemmer (azarah@gentoo.org): added charset
336 map file support to /etc/init.d/consolefont and the setting to
337 /etc/rc.conf.

9 in the restart stuff of /etc/init.d/runscript.sh that caused 343 in the restart stuff of /etc/init.d/runscript.sh that caused
10 a restart of a 'net' service not to restart services again 344 a restart of a 'net' service not to restart services again
11 that depended on it. 345 that depended on it.
12
13 Change the way /etc/mtab is created in /etc/init.d/checkroot to
14 be more generic.
15 346
16* rc-scripts 1.2.5 (20 Jan 2002) 347* rc-scripts 1.2.5 (20 Jan 2002)
