5 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
7 this in /sbin/rc.
8
9 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.
11 Also added 'get_bootparam()' to help in retrieving kernel options.
12 Updated /etc/init.d/functions.sh, /etc/init.d/checkroot and /sbin/rc
13 for this.
14
15 Updated /etc/init.d/consolefont to work without devfs as well.
16
17 When rebooting or shutting down, a service should not fail to stop
18 if a service it depends on, fails. Updated /etc/init.d/runscript.sh
19 for this.
20
21 25 Feb 2002; Martin Schlemmer <azarah@gentoo.org>: added a check if
22 /dev is mounted when creating entries for /etc/mtab. This should solve a
23 invalid entry or /dev being mounted even with 'gentoo=nodevfs' option.
24 Updated /etc/init.d/checkroot for this.
25
26 17 Feb 2002: Daniel Robbins <drobbins@gentoo.org>: Made "xfs" the default
27 filesystem in /etc/fstab (from ReiserFS) and removed "notail" option (it's
28 just in a comment now)
29
30 17 Feb 2002: Martin Schlemmer (azarah@gentoo.org): more fixes to 'after' and
31 'before', updated /etc/init.d/runscript.sh for this. This should fix
32 services not getting started in the correct order in a tight loop, services
33 getting stopped out of order, and some other sanity checks. Updated
34 rc-script.sh for updated help.
35
36 15 Feb 2002: Martin Schlemmer (azarah@gentoo.org): update /etc/profile to
37 resolve bug #588. Reimplemented things a bit, and added the 'after' type.
38 'before' and 'after' will only work currently for a change of runlevel.
39 Updated /etc/init.d/depscan.sh, /etc/init.d/runscript.sh and /sbin/rc for it.
40
41 13 Feb 2002: Martin Schlemmer (azarah@gentoo.org): add some more entries to
42 /etc/devfsd.conf to make alsa users life easier ... thanks Tod.
43
44 12 Feb 2002: Martin Schlemmer (azarah@gentoo.org): Some more cleanups to
45 /etc/init.d/depscan.sh and /etc/init.d/runscript.sh.
46
47 Fixed some services not starting again when restarting a service.
48 Seems simple is still the best way.
49
50 Fixed some other problems created with feature additions and cleanups.
51
52 11 Feb 2002: Martin Schlemmer (azarah@gentoo.org): General cleanups to
53 /etc/init.d/depscan.sh and /etc/init.d/runscript.sh.
54
55 Added 'before *' to /etc/init.d/checkroot to make sure it gets
56 started first.
57
58 Added 'use *' to /etc/init.d/local to make sure it gets started
59 last.
60
61 10 Feb 2002: Martin Schlemmer (azarah@gentoo.org): Fixed /sbin/rc
62 to stop a service on change of runlevel if it is in 'use' by
63 another service.
64
65 Added the 'provide' depend type for creating virtual services.
66 Updated /etc/init.d/depscan.sh for this.
67
68 Added the 'before' depend type. This is more for changing the
69 order services start in. Updated /etc/init.d/depscan.sh and
70 /etc/init.d/functions.sh for this.
71
72 Updated /etc/init.d/depscan.sh to work with '*' as argument for
73 dependancy types. This can be used with 'use' and 'before' to
74 start a script last or first respectively.
75
76 Added save_options() and get_options() to /etc/init.d/functions.sh
77 for saving misc settings between startup/shutdown. Updated
78 /etc/init.d/net.eth0 to use these and properly down virtual
79 interfaces.
80
81 6 Feb 2002: Martin Schlemmer (azarah@gentoo.org): updated both
82 /etc/init.d/bootmisc and /etc/init.d/keymaps to be quiet on no
83 errors.
84
85* rc-scripts 1.2.6 (6 Feb 2002)
86
87 2 Feb 2002: Martin Schlemmer (azarah@gentoo.org): updated /etc/net.eth0
88 to specify the gateway device via the $gateway variable (something like
89 gateway="eth0/192.168.0.1").
90
91 2 Feb 2002: Martin Schlemmer (azarah@gentoo.org): added rc-script
92 /etc/init.d/numlock, for enabling numlock at boot.
93
94 29 Jan 2002: Martin Schlemmer (azarah@gentoo.org): hopefully the
95 last fix to /etc/init.d/netmount to umount cleanly. This fix
96 implements a retry if not successful the first time, and will
97 kill processess using the mount. Also small type-o fix to
98 /etc/init.d/halt.sh.
99
100 27 Jan 2002: Donny Davies (woodchip@gentoo.org): security fix to
101 /etc/pam.d/sshd,login,chsh: added pam_shells.so to the stack.
102 Fixed /etc/passwd,group for user/group mysql.
103
104 27 Jan 2002: Martin Schlemmer (azarah@gentoo.org): added charset
105 map file support to /etc/init.d/consolefont and the setting to
106 /etc/rc.conf.
107
108 25 Jan 2002: Martin Schlemmer (azarah@gentoo.org): fixed dircolors
109 in skel files to support both versions of dircolors.
110
111 23 Jan 2002: Martin Schlemmer (azarah@gentoo.org): fixed bug
112 in the restart stuff of /etc/init.d/runscript.sh that caused
113 a restart of a 'net' service not to restart services again
114 that depended on it.
115
116* rc-scripts 1.2.5 (20 Jan 2002)
117
118 20 Jan 2002: Martin Schlemmer (azarah@gentoo.org): updated
119 /etc/init.d/net.eth0 to 'use' pcmcia.
120
121 8 Jan 2002: Martin Schlemmer (azarah@gentoo.org): added '--sh' to
122 the dircolors command in /etc/skel/.bash_profile to handle cases
123 where bash do not export $SHELL.
124
125 6 Jan 2002: Martin Schlemmer (azarah@gentoo.org): updated
126 /etc/init.d/runscripts.sh, /etc/init.d/net.eth0, /etc/conf.d/net and
127 removed /etc/init.d/net.eth0-dhcp to reflect a new 'bsd-ish' config
128 scheme for the net.eth* scripts.
129
130 6 Jan 2002: Donny Davies (woodchip@gentoo.org): Removed email address
131 from manpages; no need for that..
132
133 5 Jan 2002: Martin Schlemmer (azarah@gentoo.org): fix type-o in
134 /etc/devfsd.conf; had 'dvd' in the cdrw stuff.
135
136* rc-scripts 1.2.4 (30 Dec 2001)
137
138 30 Dec 2001: Daniel Robbins (drobbins@gentoo.org): Changed default umask
139 back to 022 as it should be.
140
141 30 Dec 2001; Martin Schlemmer (azarah@gentoo.org): Updated
142 /etc/init.d/checkfs to return 0 if the fs was successfully repaired.
143
144 29 Dec 2001; Donny Davies (woodchip@gentoo.org):
145 sort -t: -k3,3 -n /etc/passwd,group. Ahhhh :))
146
147 28 Dec 2001; Martin Schlemmer (azarah@gentoo.org); Updated
148 /etc/init.d/depscan.sh to store info about missing dependancies of
149 type 'need' in ${svcdir}/broken. Also updated /etc/init.d/runscript.sh
150 to use this when starting a script ('need' dependancies is critical for
151 startup). Added the broken() function to /etc/init.d/runscript.sh
152 to list the missing dependancies.
153
154 Updated /etc/init.d/runscript.sh for svc_start() to have better error
155 checking.
156
157 Updated /etc/init.d/functions.sh with ewend(), which is the same as
158 eend(), but print a warning on error, not a error. Updated
159 /etc/init.d/checkroot and /etc/init.d/checkfs to use this function.
160
161 27 Dec 2001; Martin Schlemmer (azarah@gentoo.org); Update /sbin/runscript.c
162 to run /etc/init.d/rc-help.sh if no arguments is passed to a rc-script.
163
164 Added /etc/init.d/rc-help.sh, simple script that prints out help for
165 the rc-scripts.
166
167 25 Dec 2001; Martin Schlemmer (azarah@gentoo.org); Update
168 /etc/init.d/shutdown.sh and /etc/init.d/reboot.sh not to force the
169 halt and reboot. This fixes a problem where / was not unmounted
170 properly in some cases.
171
172 24 Dec 2001; Martin Schlemmer (azarah@gentoo.org): Move $svcdir to
173 to /etc/init.d/functions.sh, and update /etc/init.d/runscript.sh and
174 /etc/init.d/depscan.sh for this
175
176 Modified /etc/init.d/runscript.sh to also restart the services that
177 depend on a service if that service is restarted. Enhanced the
178 restart function to be able to have custom restart() functions in
179 rc-scripts. The custom restart() have to use svc_stop() and
180 svc_start() to restart the service.
181
182 Add a pause function to /etc/init.d/runscript.sh. It will basically
183 stop a service without stopping the services that depends on that
184 service.
185
186 Add a pause function to /etc/init.d/runscript.sh. It will basically stop a
187 service without stopping the services that depends on that service.
188
189* rc-scripts 1.2.3 (18 Dec 2001)
190
191 16 Dec 2001; Martin Schlemmer (azarah@gentoo.org): Moved the stuff from
192 /sbin/init (old) to /sbin/rc (basically drop the init wrapper we used).
193
194 Some cleanups: take out the shm resize comment;
195
196 remove the $wrongmount;
197
198 remove the mountshm() function and insert it directly
199 where needed;
200
201 remove the setting of $PATH as /sbin/init already do
202 this for us.
203
204 Added the if statement to detect if it is the first time the 'boot'
205 runlevel is executed (if [ "$RUNLEVEL" = "S" ] && [ "$argv1" = "boot" ]).
206 $RUNLEVEL is a env var set by /sbin/init.
207
208 Also added functionality to detect if the kernel have DEVFS support
209 compiled in; seems new users thinks devfs is unstable and as they do
210 not always read the docs, it does not get compiled in ;/ Should
211 make live for us a bit easier.
212
213 14 Dec 2001; Martin Schlemmer (azarah@gentoo.org): Fixed /sbin/rc to kill
214 a cosmetic bug in the part that stops all the unneeded services.
215
216* rc-scripts 1.2.2 (8 Dec 2001)
217
218 10 Dec 2001; Added a localhost entry in /etc/hosts.
219
220 8 Dec 2001; Donny Davies (woodchip@gentoo.org): Added start-stop-daemon.c
221 to rc-scripts/sbin source. Moved rc-scripts/init.d/runscript.c to
222 rc-scripts/sbin/runscript.c. Added manpage for start-stop-daemon.
223 Start-stop-daemon is moved here from sysvinit by the way. There is stuff
224 in this ChangeLog that needs to be removed! Like the changes to hosts,
225 profile. /etc/{passwd,group} have minor UID and GID type fixes for
226 users ftp, postgres, xfs. Tweaked tarball.sh to not include CVS
227 directories.
228
229 29 Nov 2001; Donny Davies (woodchip@gentoo.org): Added a man directory
230 to rc-scripts. Checked in two manpages there, one for modules.autoload.5
231 and one for update-modules.8. These were adapted from Debian. Updated
232 tarball.sh to include the new man directory. Updated baselayout to install
233 these manpages. Slightly tweak the /etc/modules.autoload comments.
234
235 28 Nov 2001; Martin Schlemmer (azarah@gentoo.org): Updated /sbin/init
236 to work correctly with the 'gentoo=nodevfs' option, and cleaned
237 out old code.
238
239 Updated /etc/init.d/bootmisc with additional lock files to clean.
240
241 27 Nov 2001; Martin Schlemmer (azarah@gentoo.org): Updated
242 /etc/init.d/depscan.sh for a virtual 'use' depend, called 'logger'
243 that can be used for services that needs to have a logger started
244 before they are started. Updated /etc/conf.d/basic with $SYSLOGGER
245 that is used to define what loggers the 'logger' depend represent.
246
247 26 Nov 2001; Martin Schlemmer (azarah@gentoo.org): Updated
248 /etc/passwd and /etc/group with minor fixes to pass pwck and grpck.
249
250 25 Nov 2001; Martin Schlemmer (azarah@gentoo.org): Changed umask in
251 /etc/profile for the user to 077 for security.
252
253 Added a stop() function to /etc/init.d/clock. Also removed uneeded
254 'source /etc/rc.conf' line.
255
256 Updated /etc/init.d/hostname to set the hostname to 'localhost' if
257 /etc/hostname is invalid.
258
259 Updated /sbin/init to move the entries in /lib/dev-state to /dev before
260 running devfsd, as it did still not save settings properly. Also removed
261 old /dev-state/compat stuff.
262
263 25 Nov 2001; ncsd, the name service cache daemon script, has been removed
264 from the default "default" runlevel. It still exists in the archive so that
265 users who want/need it can add it easily.
266
267 25 Nov 2001; Updated the /etc/fstab; removed usbdevfs (explicitly mounted),
268 removed notail from the ext2 boot partition, other cleanups.
269
5 25 Nov 2001; Fixed init.d/clock script to work in UTC mode. 270 25 Nov 2001; Fixed init.d/clock script to work in UTC mode.
6 271
272 24 Nov 2001; Martin Schlemmer (azarah@gentoo.org): Added /etc/devfsd.conf
273 and updated /sbin/init to use a new scheme for saving /dev permissions.
274 Also moved /dev-state to /lib/dev-state which is a more standard location.
275
276 Fixed a ugly bug in /etc/init.d/depscan.sh. If a service depended on
277 itself, calling depscan.sh or changing runlevels cause a tempory effect
278 similar to a 'mini fork bomb'. Afterwards the depends was broken, and
279 changing runlevels did not want to work.
280
281 Updated /etc/init.d/halt.sh to terminate and display message for devfsd.
282 More cosmetic than anything else, but cant hurt with the new dev-state
283 scheme.
284
285 Updated /sbin/init to set the console log level to 1, so that bootup
286 can be much cleaner. Also updated /etc/init.d/modules not to have
287 a logger in it 'use' depends, as it should not be needed anymore.
288
289 Updated /sbin/rc to check if devfsd is still running between runlevel
290 changes.
291
292 Updated /etc/init.d/modules to run update-modules. We want to be sure
293 /etc/modules.conf is updated when running depmod -a.
294
295 Change ftp's uid to 21 in /etc/passwd (was the same as bind). Also
296 added a entry for xfs (X Font Server) in /etc/passwd and /etc/group.
297
298 Added /etc/init.d/net.ppp0, /etc/conf.d/net.ppp0 and
299 /usr/lib/ppp/chat-default as part of my new pppd scripts. Also
300 updated tarball.sh to handle ppp/chat-default.
301
302 Added /etc/skel/.bash* to make things cleaner.
303
304 Other minor changes.
305
7 17 Nov 2001; Donny Davies (woodchip@gentoo.org): Added /etc/shells file 306 17 Nov 2001; Donny Davies (woodchip@gentoo.org): Added /etc/shells file

23 cleans /tmp. Also creates /etc/resolv.conf if it doesn't exist. 322 cleans /tmp. Also creates /etc/resolv.conf if it doesn't exist.
24 323

30 should solve Woodchip's syslog+glue issue. We just have to change the 329 should solve Woodchip's syslog+glue issue. We just have to change the
31 console loglevel for metalog and syslog-ng (sysklogd already updated) not to 330 console loglevel for metalog and syslog-ng (sysklogd already updated) not to
32 output info and warnings, etc to the console, then boot will be much cleaner. 331 output info and warnings, etc to the console, then boot will be much cleaner.
33 Also the install guide will need changing to add the loggers to 'boot' and 332 Also the install guide will need changing to add the loggers to 'boot' and
34 not 'default' runlevel. 333 not 'default' runlevel.
35 334
36 init.d/mountall.test: Hopefully updated to the new rc-scripts style. Is 335 init.d/mountall.test: Hopefully updated to the new rc-scripts style. Is
37 this really needed (I cannot see that it is used anywhere ...)? 336 this really needed (I cannot see that it is used anywhere ...)?
