5 25 Jan 2002: Martin Schlemmer (azarah@gentoo.org): fixed dircolors
6 in skel files to support both versions of dircolors.
7
8 23 Jan 2002: Martin Schlemmer (azarah@gentoo.org): fixed bug
9 in the restart stuff of /etc/init.d/runscript.sh that caused
10 a restart of a 'net' service not to restart services again
11 that depended on it.
12
13 Change the way /etc/mtab is created in /etc/init.d/checkroot to
14 be more generic.
15
16* rc-scripts 1.2.5 (20 Jan 2002)
17
18 20 Jan 2002: Martin Schlemmer (azarah@gentoo.org): updated
19 /etc/init.d/net.eth0 to 'use' pcmcia.
20
21 8 Jan 2002: Martin Schlemmer (azarah@gentoo.org): added '--sh' to
22 the dircolors command in /etc/skel/.bash_profile to handle cases
23 where bash do not export $SHELL.
24
25 6 Jan 2002: Martin Schlemmer (azarah@gentoo.org): updated
26 /etc/init.d/runscripts.sh, /etc/init.d/net.eth0, /etc/conf.d/net and
27 removed /etc/init.d/net.eth0-dhcp to reflect a new 'bsd-ish' config
28 scheme for the net.eth* scripts.
29
30 6 Jan 2002: Donny Davies (woodchip@gentoo.org): Removed email address
31 from manpages; no need for that..
32
33 5 Jan 2002: Martin Schlemmer (azarah@gentoo.org): fix type-o in
34 /etc/devfsd.conf; had 'dvd' in the cdrw stuff.
35
36* rc-scripts 1.2.4 (30 Dec 2001)
37
38 30 Dec 2001: Daniel Robbins (drobbins@gentoo.org): Changed default umask
39 back to 022 as it should be.
40
41 30 Dec 2001; Martin Schlemmer (azarah@gentoo.org): Updated
42 /etc/init.d/checkfs to return 0 if the fs was successfully repaired.
43
44 29 Dec 2001; Donny Davies (woodchip@gentoo.org):
45 sort -t: -k3,3 -n /etc/passwd,group. Ahhhh :))
46
47 28 Dec 2001; Martin Schlemmer (azarah@gentoo.org); Updated
48 /etc/init.d/depscan.sh to store info about missing dependancies of
49 type 'need' in ${svcdir}/broken. Also updated /etc/init.d/runscript.sh
50 to use this when starting a script ('need' dependancies is critical for
51 startup). Added the broken() function to /etc/init.d/runscript.sh
52 to list the missing dependancies.
53
54 Updated /etc/init.d/runscript.sh for svc_start() to have better error
55 checking.
56
57 Updated /etc/init.d/functions.sh with ewend(), which is the same as
58 eend(), but print a warning on error, not a error. Updated
59 /etc/init.d/checkroot and /etc/init.d/checkfs to use this function.
60
61 27 Dec 2001; Martin Schlemmer (azarah@gentoo.org); Update /sbin/runscript.c
62 to run /etc/init.d/rc-help.sh if no arguments is passed to a rc-script.
63
64 Added /etc/init.d/rc-help.sh, simple script that prints out help for
65 the rc-scripts.
66
67 25 Dec 2001; Martin Schlemmer (azarah@gentoo.org); Update
68 /etc/init.d/shutdown.sh and /etc/init.d/reboot.sh not to force the
69 halt and reboot. This fixes a problem where / was not unmounted
70 properly in some cases.
71
72 24 Dec 2001; Martin Schlemmer (azarah@gentoo.org): Move $svcdir to
73 to /etc/init.d/functions.sh, and update /etc/init.d/runscript.sh and
74 /etc/init.d/depscan.sh for this
75
76 Modified /etc/init.d/runscript.sh to also restart the services that
77 depend on a service if that service is restarted. Enhanced the
78 restart function to be able to have custom restart() functions in
79 rc-scripts. The custom restart() have to use svc_stop() and
80 svc_start() to restart the service.
81
82 Add a pause function to /etc/init.d/runscript.sh. It will basically
83 stop a service without stopping the services that depends on that
84 service.
85
86 Add a pause function to /etc/init.d/runscript.sh. It will basically stop a
87 service without stopping the services that depends on that service.
88
89* rc-scripts 1.2.3 (18 Dec 2001)
90
91 16 Dec 2001; Martin Schlemmer (azarah@gentoo.org): Moved the stuff from
92 /sbin/init (old) to /sbin/rc (basically drop the init wrapper we used).
93
94 Some cleanups: take out the shm resize comment;
95
96 remove the $wrongmount;
97
98 remove the mountshm() function and insert it directly
99 where needed;
100
101 remove the setting of $PATH as /sbin/init already do
102 this for us.
103
104 Added the if statement to detect if it is the first time the 'boot'
105 runlevel is executed (if [ "$RUNLEVEL" = "S" ] && [ "$argv1" = "boot" ]).
106 $RUNLEVEL is a env var set by /sbin/init.
107
108 Also added functionality to detect if the kernel have DEVFS support
109 compiled in; seems new users thinks devfs is unstable and as they do
110 not always read the docs, it does not get compiled in ;/ Should
111 make live for us a bit easier.
112
113 14 Dec 2001; Martin Schlemmer (azarah@gentoo.org): Fixed /sbin/rc to kill
114 a cosmetic bug in the part that stops all the unneeded services.
115

41 /etc/profile for the user to 077 for security. 151 /etc/profile for the user to 077 for security.
42 152
43 Added a localhost line to /etc/hosts after yet another post to gentoo-user.
44 I cant see any problem with this, and since nobody else wants to take the
45 plunge ....
46
47 Added a stop() function to /etc/init.d/clock. Also removed uneeded 153 Added a stop() function to /etc/init.d/clock. Also removed uneeded
48 'source /etc/rc.conf' line. 154 'source /etc/rc.conf' line.
49 155
50 Updated /etc/init.d/hostname to set the hostname to 'localhost' if 156 Updated /etc/init.d/hostname to set the hostname to 'localhost' if

54 158
55 Updated /sbin/init to move the entries in /lib/dev-state to /dev before 159 Updated /sbin/init to move the entries in /lib/dev-state to /dev before
56 running devfsd, as it did still not save settings properly. Also removed 160 running devfsd, as it did still not save settings properly. Also removed
57 old /dev-state/compat stuff. 161 old /dev-state/compat stuff.
58 162
59 Removed a stupid bug out of /sbin/init ... /lib/dev-state/* was moved
60 to /dev *before* /dev was mounted.
61
62 Seems the .keep files in /lib/dev-state/pts and /lib/dev-state/shm
63 caused /sbin/init to lock while moving /lib/dev-state/* to /dev. Added
64 the needed fixes to the baselayout ebuild.
65
66 On second thoughts, removed the 'try' out of the code that moves
67 /lib/dev-state/* to /dev, since this is not a critical task, and
68 booting will still continue on failure.
69
70 25 Nov 2001; ncsd, the name service cache daemon script, has been removed 163 25 Nov 2001; ncsd, the name service cache daemon script, has been removed

88 file for setting generic optimizations for the disk drives.
