5 24 March 2002; Martin Schlemmer <azarah@gentoo.org>:
6
7 Resolve bug #1274. Updated /etc/init.d/hostname and /etc/init.d/bootmisc
8 for this.
9
10 With the "before" and "after" stuff, recursion levels was getting too high,
11 and with some cases, things just plain did not work as it should. Reworked
12 things to to lower the levels of recursion and get the order right. Updated
13 /etc/init.d/runscript.sh for this.
14
15 Fixed a problem in /sbin/rc and /etc/init.d/runscript.sh where
16 ${svcdir}/softlevel did not always exist, but runscript.sh tried to open it.
17
18 Enhance --quiet support. Updated /etc/init.d/functions.sh for this.
19
20 Remove /etc/pwdb.conf, as pwdb already install a copy of this.
21
22 Remove /etc/pam.d/{rexec,rlogin,rsh} as pam already install this.
23
24* rc-scripts 1.3.1 (23 Mar 2002)
25
26 23 March 2002; Daniel Robbins <drobbins@gentoo.org>: init.d/net.eth0: fix for
27 DHCP lease release from Jim Nutt.
28
29 23 March 2002; Daniel Robbins <drobbins@gentoo.org>: rolling a new release
30 since there are a lot of important bug fixes in here that are needed.
31
32 23 March 2002; Martin Schlemmer <azarah@gentoo.org>:
33
34 Resolve bug #1292.
35
36 Remove the extra 'depmod -a' in /etc/init.d/modules, thanks to
37 Spidler.
38
39 21 March 2002; Martin Schlemmer <azarah@gentoo.org>:
40
41 Update /sbin/rc to fix a 'cat mounts' instead of the correct
42 version, 'cat /proc/mounts'.
43
44 19 March 2002; Martin Schlemmer <azarah@gentoo.org>:
45
46 Add initial support for the --quiet flag that suppress output.
47
48 18 March 2002; Martin Schlemmer <azarah@gentoo.org>:
49
50 Remove the 'try' from 'try /etc/init.d/depscan.sh' in /sbin/rc
51 as not all errors by depscan.sh is critical. It should be
52 reworked to do better error handeling.
53
54 14 March 2002; Martin Schlemmer <azarah@gentoo.org>:
55
56 Fix the GID and UID of nobody and nogroup in /etc/passwd and
57 /etc/group to match those of Debian, FBSD and others. Thanks
58 to those who reported it, and Woodchip for looking up the
59 proper values.
60
61 Update /etc/init.d/net.eth0 to properly down DHCP interfaces.
62 This resolves bug #1150, thanks to Paul Fleischer.
63
64 11 March 2002; Martin Schlemmer <azarah@gentoo.org>:
65
66 Updated /etc/init.d/functions.sh not to use /usr/bin/basename,
67 as some users have /usr on seperate partition which is not
68 mounted when depscan.sh is run the first time.
69
70 Updated the checking for more than one service providing the
71 same virtual function in /etc/init.d/depscan.sh. It should
72 be working now, and this also fix a problem that when there is no
73 service providing a virtual, counter was used uninitialized.
74
75* rc-scripts 1.3.0 (10 March 2002)
76
77 10 March 2002; Martin Schlemmer <azarah@gentoo.org>: Resolved
78 bug #1021; updated /etc/init.d/consolefont for this.
79
80 Resolved bug #1029; updated /etc/init.d/net.eth0 for this.
81
82 Resolved bug #990; updated /etc/init.d/net.eth0, /etc/init.d/netmount
83 and /etc/init.d/localmount for this.
84
85 Lots of form/syntax cleanups, most things should be more
86 consistant now. Fixed fail detection/return values of lots of
87 scripts.
88
89 Lots of cleanup/fixes in the three main scripts behind our
90 rc-system, /sbin/rc, /etc/init.d/depscan.sh, /etc/init.d/runscript.sh
91
92 Fix a bug regarding a invalid $PATH for portage if /etc/init.d/functions.sh
93 is sourced in a ebuild.
94
95 Fix a bug that our rc-script wrapper introduced: Global variables
96 in scripts no longer worked. Updated /etc/init.d/runscript.sh for
97 this.
98
99 Implemented more error checking for the main startup code in /sbin/rc.
100 Also fixed try() for mounting /proc (maybe all mount commands).
101 The function worked fine in a simulated test, but in real life failed
102 to detect a error when mounting /proc (remember to thank Grant for
103 his UserMode ebuilds, and Guide).
104
105* rc-scripts 1.2.9 (6 March 2002)
106
107 6 March 2002; Martin Schlemmer <azarah@gentoo.org>: General form
108 updates and some piping fixes.
109
110 Updated /etc/inittab, /etc/init.d/xdm and /etc/X11/startDM.sh
111 to fix a problem where startDM.sh would be respawned repeatedly
112 if xdm was not in the default runlevel.
113
114* rc-scripts 1.2.8 (4 March 2002)
115
116 4 March 2002; Martin Schlemmer <azarah@gentoo.org>: add /etc/init.d/xdm,
117 /etc/X11/startDM.sh and updated /etc/inittab to fix the "dead key"
118 problem we had with xdm/gdm/kdm. We should move them to the
119 xfree ebuild later on when things settles down.
120
121 Added some sanity checks to /sbin/rc, /etc/init.d/runscripts.sh.
122
123 Added a basic $PATH to /etc/init.d/functions.sh to fix a problem
124 where we had a invalid $PATH on boot in some cases.
125
126 Updated /etc/init.d/keymap and /etc/init.d/consolefont to work with
127 the new sys-apps/kbd package.
128
129* rc-scripts 1.2.7 (3 March 2002)
130
131 3 March 2002; Martin Schlemmer <azarah@gentoo.org>: fixed the problem
132 of rc-scripts trying to start/stop a service multiple times if it
133 fails to do so. Updated /etc/init.d/runscript.sh and /sbin/rc for
134 this.
135
136 Fixing some variable declarations in /etc/init.d/runscript.sh caused
137 /etc/init.d/net.lo to fail on stop ($IFACE was set invalid). Fixed
138 this.
139
140 Added caching of the "depend() { need foo; } " lines, and updated
141 /etc/init.d/depscan.sh to touch the actual files less. This should
142 speedup dependancy caching a lot, especially on slow machines.
143
144 Updated /etc/passwd to have users with no shell defined, use /bin/false
145 for security.
146
147 Update /etc/fstab to mention /dev/shm since we dont mount it anymore.
148
149 1 March 2002; Martin Schlemmer <azarah@gentoo.org>: added a wrapper for
150 sourcing the rc-scripts to eliminate syntax errors. Thanks to
151 Karl Trygve Kalleberg (aka karltk) for the idea. Updated
152 /etc/init.d/depscan.sh, /etc/init.d/functions.sh and
153 /etc/init.d/runscript.sh for this (added wrap_rcscript() function).
154
155 Removed stopping of dependant services that have current service as
156 a 'use'dependancy ... should be less confusing now.
157 Updated /etc/init.d/runscript.sh for this.
158
159 28 Feb 2002; Martin Schlemmer <azarah@gentoo.org>: add /etc/conf.d/local.start
160 and /etc/conf.d/local.stop for adding any misc programs to startup. This
161 should pretty much have /etc/init.d/ static, except for baselayout updates,
162 etc.
163
5 27 Feb 2002; Martin Schlemmer <azarah@gentoo.org>: in some wierd cases, 164 27 Feb 2002; Martin Schlemmer <azarah@gentoo.org>: in some wierd cases,
6 a redundent /dev/.devfsd on a unmounted /dev can cause problems. Fixed 165 a redundent /dev/.devfsd on a unmounted /dev can cause problems. Fixed
7 this in /sbin/rc. 166 this in /sbin/rc.
167
168 Added the patches from Grant Goodyear (aka g2boojum) to enable us to
169 use a ramdisk to store the contents of ${svcdir}. Updated /sbin/rc,
170 /etc/init.d/functions.sh and /etc/init.d/checkroot for this.
8 171
9 26 Feb 2002; Martin Schlemmer <azarah@gentoo.org>: fix my brain dead 172 26 Feb 2002; Martin Schlemmer <azarah@gentoo.org>: fix my brain dead
10 update of the 25th. It really should keep "gentoo=nodevfs" in mind. 173 update of the 25th. It really should keep "gentoo=nodevfs" in mind.
11 Also added 'get_bootparam()' to help in retrieving kernel options. 174 Also added 'get_bootparam()' to help in retrieving kernel options.
12 Updated /etc/init.d/functions.sh, /etc/init.d/checkroot and /sbin/rc 175 Updated /etc/init.d/functions.sh, /etc/init.d/checkroot and /sbin/rc
