29 noting this.
30
31 24 April 2002; Donny Davies <woodchip@gentoo.org> rc.conf :
32
33 Remove NFSSERVER from rc.conf since it's now covered in /etc/conf.d/nfs

36 Closes #1754.

64 Thanks to Väinö Järvelä for this fix.
65
66 Update /etc/profile to also set the PS? variables if $SHELL
67 is set to /bin/sh. This should make prompt colours in
68 bootstrap work again.
69
70 Move LVM stuff to checkfs to ensure that they get fscked.
71 This resolves bug #1552.
72
73* rc-scripts 1.3.3 (5 April 2002)

91
92 Resolve bug #1274. Updated /etc/init.d/hostname and /etc/init.d/bootmisc
93 for this.
94
95 With the "before" and "after" stuff, recursion levels was getting too high,
96 and with some cases, things just plain did not work as it should. Reworked
97 things to to lower the levels of recursion and get the order right. Updated
98 /etc/init.d/runscript.sh for this.
99
100 Fixed a problem in /sbin/rc and /etc/init.d/runscript.sh where
101 ${svcdir}/softlevel did not always exist, but runscript.sh tried to open it.
102
103 Enhance --quiet support. Updated /etc/init.d/functions.sh for this.
104
105 Remove /etc/pwdb.conf, as pwdb already install a copy of this.
106
107 Remove /etc/pam.d/{rexec,rlogin,rsh} as pam already install this.
108

110 and it seems it has fallen now to my discression.
111
112* rc-scripts 1.3.1 (23 Mar 2002)
113
114 23 March 2002; Daniel Robbins <drobbins@gentoo.org>: init.d/net.eth0: fix for
115 DHCP lease release from Jim Nutt.
116
117 23 March 2002; Daniel Robbins <drobbins@gentoo.org>: rolling a new release
118 since there are a lot of important bug fixes in here that are needed.
119
120 23 March 2002; Martin Schlemmer <azarah@gentoo.org>:
121
122 Resolve bug #1292.
123
124 Remove the extra 'depmod -a' in /etc/init.d/modules, thanks to
125 Spidler.
126
127 21 March 2002; Martin Schlemmer <azarah@gentoo.org>:
128
129 Update /sbin/rc to fix a 'cat mounts' instead of the correct
130 version, 'cat /proc/mounts'.
131
132 19 March 2002; Martin Schlemmer <azarah@gentoo.org>:
133
134 Add initial support for the --quiet flag that suppress output.
135
136 18 March 2002; Martin Schlemmer <azarah@gentoo.org>:
137
138 Remove the 'try' from 'try /etc/init.d/depscan.sh' in /sbin/rc
139 as not all errors by depscan.sh is critical. It should be
140 reworked to do better error handeling.
141
142 14 March 2002; Martin Schlemmer <azarah@gentoo.org>:
143
144 Fix the GID and UID of nobody and nogroup in /etc/passwd and
145 /etc/group to match those of Debian, FBSD and others. Thanks
146 to those who reported it, and Woodchip for looking up the
147 proper values.
148
149 Update /etc/init.d/net.eth0 to properly down DHCP interfaces.
150 This resolves bug #1150, thanks to Paul Fleischer.
151
152 11 March 2002; Martin Schlemmer <azarah@gentoo.org>:
153
154 Updated /etc/init.d/functions.sh not to use /usr/bin/basename,
155 as some users have /usr on seperate partition which is not
156 mounted when depscan.sh is run the first time.
157
158 Updated the checking for more than one service providing the
159 same virtual function in /etc/init.d/depscan.sh. It should
160 be working now, and this also fix a problem that when there is no
161 service providing a virtual, counter was used uninitialized.
162
163* rc-scripts 1.3.0 (10 March 2002)
164
165 10 March 2002; Martin Schlemmer <azarah@gentoo.org>: Resolved

168 Resolved bug #1029; updated /etc/init.d/net.eth0 for this.
169
170 Resolved bug #990; updated /etc/init.d/net.eth0, /etc/init.d/netmount
171 and /etc/init.d/localmount for this.
172
173 Lots of form/syntax cleanups, most things should be more
174 consistant now. Fixed fail detection/return values of lots of
175 scripts.
176
177 Lots of cleanup/fixes in the three main scripts behind our
178 rc-system, /sbin/rc, /etc/init.d/depscan.sh, /etc/init.d/runscript.sh
179
180 Fix a bug regarding a invalid $PATH for portage if /etc/init.d/functions.sh
181 is sourced in a ebuild.
182
183 Fix a bug that our rc-script wrapper introduced: Global variables
184 in scripts no longer worked. Updated /etc/init.d/runscript.sh for
185 this.
186
187 Implemented more error checking for the main startup code in /sbin/rc.
188 Also fixed try() for mounting /proc (maybe all mount commands).
189 The function worked fine in a simulated test, but in real life failed
190 to detect a error when mounting /proc (remember to thank Grant for
191 his UserMode ebuilds, and Guide).
192
193* rc-scripts 1.2.9 (6 March 2002)
194
195 6 March 2002; Martin Schlemmer <azarah@gentoo.org>: General form
196 updates and some piping fixes.
197
198 Updated /etc/inittab, /etc/init.d/xdm and /etc/X11/startDM.sh
199 to fix a problem where startDM.sh would be respawned repeatedly
200 if xdm was not in the default runlevel.
201
202* rc-scripts 1.2.8 (4 March 2002)
203
204 4 March 2002; Martin Schlemmer <azarah@gentoo.org>: add /etc/init.d/xdm,
205 /etc/X11/startDM.sh and updated /etc/inittab to fix the "dead key"
206 problem we had with xdm/gdm/kdm. We should move them to the
207 xfree ebuild later on when things settles down.
208
209 Added some sanity checks to /sbin/rc, /etc/init.d/runscripts.sh.
210
211 Added a basic $PATH to /etc/init.d/functions.sh to fix a problem
212 where we had a invalid $PATH on boot in some cases.
213
214 Updated /etc/init.d/keymap and /etc/init.d/consolefont to work with
215 the new sys-apps/kbd package.
216
217* rc-scripts 1.2.7 (3 March 2002)
4 218

15 /etc/init.d/depscan.sh to touch the actual files less. This should 229 /etc/init.d/depscan.sh to touch the actual files less. This should
16 speedup dependancy caching a lot, especially on slow machines. 230 speedup dependancy caching a lot, especially on slow machines.
231
232 Updated /etc/passwd to have users with no shell defined, use /bin/false
233 for security.
234
235 Update /etc/fstab to mention /dev/shm since we dont mount it anymore.
17 236
18 1 March 2002; Martin Schlemmer <azarah@gentoo.org>: added a wrapper for 237 1 March 2002; Martin Schlemmer <azarah@gentoo.org>: added a wrapper for
19 sourcing the rc-scripts to eliminate syntax errors. Thanks to 238 sourcing the rc-scripts to eliminate syntax errors. Thanks to
