12 in /etc/init.d/net.eth0. Thanks to Peter W. Michaleas for
13 noting this.
14
15 24 April 2002; Donny Davies <woodchip@gentoo.org> rc.conf :
16
17 Remove NFSSERVER from rc.conf since it's now covered in /etc/conf.d/nfs
18 which is installed with the nfs-utils package. Also tidied up some
19 really old, leftover junk like the non-supported stuff from rc5.
20 Closes #1754.
21
22 23 April 2002; Martin Schlemmer <azarah@gentoo.org>:
23
24 Remove creation of /var/run/utmpx from bootmisc again. Seems

28
29 21 April 2002; Martin Schlemmer <azarah@gentoo.org>:
30
31 Add /sbin/rc-envupdate.sh to speedup updating of /etc/profile.env,
32 and /etc/csh.env. Update /etc/init.d/bootmisc to use this.

34 Implement the status commandline argument. Updated /sbin/runscript.sh
35 and /sbin/rc-help.sh for this.
36
37 Fix /sbin/depscan.sh to honour NEED and USE overriding BEFORE
38 and AFTER.
39
40 12 April 2002; Martin Schlemmer <azarah@gentoo.org>:
41
42 Update /etc/init.d/bootmisc to create /var/run/utmpx. This

44
45 11 April 2002; Martin Schlemmer <azarah@gentoo.org>:
46
47 Update /etc/skel/.bash_profile to make it tcsh compadible.
48 Thanks to Väinö Järvelä for this fix.
49
50 Update /etc/profile to also set the PS? variables if $SHELL
51 is set to /bin/sh. This should make prompt colours in
52 bootstrap work again.
53
54 Move LVM stuff to checkfs to ensure that they get fscked.
55 This resolves bug #1552.
56
57* rc-scripts 1.3.3 (5 April 2002)
58
59 5 April 2002; Martin Schlemmer <azarah@gentoo.org>:
60
61 Move /etc/init.d/{depscan.sh,runscript.sh,functions.sh} to /sbin.
62 This is done to try and ensure system integrity.
63

65
66 Add quotes to the "export INPUTRC=/etc/inputrc" line to resolve bug #1391.
67
68 Add a error message to /etc/init.d/consolefont, resolving bug #1415.
69
70 Add a bash check to the code that sets the prompt, fixing bug #1078.

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

321
322 2 Feb 2002: Martin Schlemmer (azarah@gentoo.org): updated /etc/net.eth0
323 to specify the gateway device via the $gateway variable (something like
324 gateway="eth0/192.168.0.1").
325
326 2 Feb 2002: Martin Schlemmer (azarah@gentoo.org): added rc-script
327 /etc/init.d/numlock, for enabling numlock at boot.
328
329 29 Jan 2002: Martin Schlemmer (azarah@gentoo.org): hopefully the
330 last fix to /etc/init.d/netmount to umount cleanly. This fix
331 implements a retry if not successful the first time, and will
332 kill processess using the mount. Also small type-o fix to
333 /etc/init.d/halt.sh.
334
335 27 Jan 2002: Donny Davies (woodchip@gentoo.org): security fix to
336 /etc/pam.d/sshd,login,chsh: added pam_shells.so to the stack.
337 Fixed /etc/passwd,group for user/group mysql.
338
339 27 Jan 2002: Martin Schlemmer (azarah@gentoo.org): added charset

9 in the restart stuff of /etc/init.d/runscript.sh that caused 347 in the restart stuff of /etc/init.d/runscript.sh that caused
10 a restart of a 'net' service not to restart services again 348 a restart of a 'net' service not to restart services again
11 that depended on it. 349 that depended on it.
12
13 Change the way /etc/mtab is created in /etc/init.d/checkroot to
14 be more generic.
15 350
16* rc-scripts 1.2.5 (20 Jan 2002) 351* rc-scripts 1.2.5 (20 Jan 2002)
