5* rc-scripts 1.3.1 (23 Mar 2002)
6
7 23 March 2002; Daniel Robbins <drobbins@gentoo.org>: init.d/net.eth0: fix for
8 DHCP lease release from Jim Nutt.
9
10 23 March 2002; Daniel Robbins <drobbins@gentoo.org>: rolling a new release
11 since there are a lot of important bug fixes in here that are needed.
12
13 23 March 2002; Martin Schlemmer <azarah@gentoo.org>:
14
15 Resolve bug #1292.
16
17 Remove the extra 'depmod -a' in /etc/init.d/modules, thanks to
18 Spidler.
19
20 21 March 2002; Martin Schlemmer <azarah@gentoo.org>:
21
22 Update /sbin/rc to fix a 'cat mounts' instead of the correct
23 version, 'cat /proc/mounts'.
24
25 19 March 2002; Martin Schlemmer <azarah@gentoo.org>:
26
27 Add initial support for the --quiet flag that suppress output.
28
29 18 March 2002; Martin Schlemmer <azarah@gentoo.org>:
30
31 Remove the 'try' from 'try /etc/init.d/depscan.sh' in /sbin/rc
32 as not all errors by depscan.sh is critical. It should be
33 reworked to do better error handeling.
34
35 14 March 2002; Martin Schlemmer <azarah@gentoo.org>:
36
37 Fix the GID and UID of nobody and nogroup in /etc/passwd and
38 /etc/group to match those of Debian, FBSD and others. Thanks
39 to those who reported it, and Woodchip for looking up the
40 proper values.
41
42 Update /etc/init.d/net.eth0 to properly down DHCP interfaces.
43 This resolves bug #1150, thanks to Paul Fleischer.
44
45 11 March 2002; Martin Schlemmer <azarah@gentoo.org>:
46
47 Updated /etc/init.d/functions.sh not to use /usr/bin/basename,
48 as some users have /usr on seperate partition which is not
49 mounted when depscan.sh is run the first time.
50
51 Updated the checking for more than one service providing the
52 same virtual function in /etc/init.d/depscan.sh. It should
53 be working now, and this also fix a problem that when there is no
54 service providing a virtual, counter was used uninitialized.
55
56* rc-scripts 1.3.0 (10 March 2002)
57
58 10 March 2002; Martin Schlemmer <azarah@gentoo.org>: Resolved
59 bug #1021; updated /etc/init.d/consolefont for this.
60
61 Resolved bug #1029; updated /etc/init.d/net.eth0 for this.
62
63 Resolved bug #990; updated /etc/init.d/net.eth0, /etc/init.d/netmount
64 and /etc/init.d/localmount for this.
65
66 Lots of form/syntax cleanups, most things should be more
67 consistant now. Fixed fail detection/return values of lots of
68 scripts.
69
70 Lots of cleanup/fixes in the three main scripts behind our
71 rc-system, /sbin/rc, /etc/init.d/depscan.sh, /etc/init.d/runscript.sh
72
73 Fix a bug regarding a invalid $PATH for portage if /etc/init.d/functions.sh
74 is sourced in a ebuild.
75
76 Fix a bug that our rc-script wrapper introduced: Global variables
77 in scripts no longer worked. Updated /etc/init.d/runscript.sh for
78 this.
79
80 Implemented more error checking for the main startup code in /sbin/rc.
81 Also fixed try() for mounting /proc (maybe all mount commands).
82 The function worked fine in a simulated test, but in real life failed
83 to detect a error when mounting /proc (remember to thank Grant for
84 his UserMode ebuilds, and Guide).
85
86* rc-scripts 1.2.9 (6 March 2002)
87
88 6 March 2002; Martin Schlemmer <azarah@gentoo.org>: General form
89 updates and some piping fixes.
90
91 Updated /etc/inittab, /etc/init.d/xdm and /etc/X11/startDM.sh
92 to fix a problem where startDM.sh would be respawned repeatedly
93 if xdm was not in the default runlevel.
94
95* rc-scripts 1.2.8 (4 March 2002)
96
97 4 March 2002; Martin Schlemmer <azarah@gentoo.org>: add /etc/init.d/xdm,
98 /etc/X11/startDM.sh and updated /etc/inittab to fix the "dead key"
99 problem we had with xdm/gdm/kdm. We should move them to the
100 xfree ebuild later on when things settles down.
101
102 Added some sanity checks to /sbin/rc, /etc/init.d/runscripts.sh.
103
104 Added a basic $PATH to /etc/init.d/functions.sh to fix a problem
105 where we had a invalid $PATH on boot in some cases.
106
107 Updated /etc/init.d/keymap and /etc/init.d/consolefont to work with
108 the new sys-apps/kbd package.
109
110* rc-scripts 1.2.7 (3 March 2002)
4 111

15 /etc/init.d/depscan.sh to touch the actual files less. This should 122 /etc/init.d/depscan.sh to touch the actual files less. This should
16 speedup dependancy caching a lot, especially on slow machines. 123 speedup dependancy caching a lot, especially on slow machines.
124
125 Updated /etc/passwd to have users with no shell defined, use /bin/false
126 for security.
127
128 Update /etc/fstab to mention /dev/shm since we dont mount it anymore.
17 129
