5* rc-scripts 1.2.5 (20 Jan 2002)
6
7 20 Jan 2002: Martin Schlemmer (azarah@gentoo.org): updated
8 /etc/init.d/net.eth0 to 'use' pcmcia.
9
10 8 Jan 2002: Martin Schlemmer (azarah@gentoo.org): added '--sh' to
11 the dircolors command in /etc/skel/.bash_profile to handle cases
12 where bash do not export $SHELL.
13
14 6 Jan 2002: Martin Schlemmer (azarah@gentoo.org): updated
15 /etc/init.d/runscripts.sh, /etc/init.d/net.eth0, /etc/conf.d/net and
16 removed /etc/init.d/net.eth0-dhcp to reflect a new 'bsd-ish' config
17 scheme for the net.eth* scripts.
18
19 6 Jan 2002: Donny Davies (woodchip@gentoo.org): Removed email address
20 from manpages; no need for that..
21
22 5 Jan 2002: Martin Schlemmer (azarah@gentoo.org): fix type-o in
23 /etc/devfsd.conf; had 'dvd' in the cdrw stuff.
24
25* rc-scripts 1.2.4 (30 Dec 2001)
26
27 30 Dec 2001: Daniel Robbins (drobbins@gentoo.org): Changed default umask
28 back to 022 as it should be.
29
30 30 Dec 2001; Martin Schlemmer (azarah@gentoo.org): Updated
31 /etc/init.d/checkfs to return 0 if the fs was successfully repaired.
32
33 29 Dec 2001; Donny Davies (woodchip@gentoo.org):
34 sort -t: -k3,3 -n /etc/passwd,group. Ahhhh :))
35
36 28 Dec 2001; Martin Schlemmer (azarah@gentoo.org); Updated
37 /etc/init.d/depscan.sh to store info about missing dependancies of
38 type 'need' in ${svcdir}/broken. Also updated /etc/init.d/runscript.sh
39 to use this when starting a script ('need' dependancies is critical for
40 startup). Added the broken() function to /etc/init.d/runscript.sh
41 to list the missing dependancies.
42
43 Updated /etc/init.d/runscript.sh for svc_start() to have better error
44 checking.
45
46 Updated /etc/init.d/functions.sh with ewend(), which is the same as
47 eend(), but print a warning on error, not a error. Updated
48 /etc/init.d/checkroot and /etc/init.d/checkfs to use this function.
49
50 27 Dec 2001; Martin Schlemmer (azarah@gentoo.org); Update /sbin/runscript.c
51 to run /etc/init.d/rc-help.sh if no arguments is passed to a rc-script.
52
53 Added /etc/init.d/rc-help.sh, simple script that prints out help for
54 the rc-scripts.
55
56 25 Dec 2001; Martin Schlemmer (azarah@gentoo.org); Update
57 /etc/init.d/shutdown.sh and /etc/init.d/reboot.sh not to force the
58 halt and reboot. This fixes a problem where / was not unmounted
59 properly in some cases.
60
61 24 Dec 2001; Martin Schlemmer (azarah@gentoo.org): Move $svcdir to
62 to /etc/init.d/functions.sh, and update /etc/init.d/runscript.sh and
63 /etc/init.d/depscan.sh for this
64
65 Modified /etc/init.d/runscript.sh to also restart the services that
66 depend on a service if that service is restarted. Enhanced the
67 restart function to be able to have custom restart() functions in
68 rc-scripts. The custom restart() have to use svc_stop() and
69 svc_start() to restart the service.
70
71 Add a pause function to /etc/init.d/runscript.sh. It will basically
72 stop a service without stopping the services that depends on that
73 service.
74
75 Add a pause function to /etc/init.d/runscript.sh. It will basically stop a
76 service without stopping the services that depends on that service.
77
78* rc-scripts 1.2.3 (18 Dec 2001)
79
80 16 Dec 2001; Martin Schlemmer (azarah@gentoo.org): Moved the stuff from
81 /sbin/init (old) to /sbin/rc (basically drop the init wrapper we used).
82
83 Some cleanups: take out the shm resize comment;
84
85 remove the $wrongmount;
86
87 remove the mountshm() function and insert it directly
88 where needed;
89
90 remove the setting of $PATH as /sbin/init already do
91 this for us.
92
93 Added the if statement to detect if it is the first time the 'boot'
94 runlevel is executed (if [ "$RUNLEVEL" = "S" ] && [ "$argv1" = "boot" ]).
95 $RUNLEVEL is a env var set by /sbin/init.
96
97 Also added functionality to detect if the kernel have DEVFS support
98 compiled in; seems new users thinks devfs is unstable and as they do
99 not always read the docs, it does not get compiled in ;/ Should
100 make live for us a bit easier.
101
102 14 Dec 2001; Martin Schlemmer (azarah@gentoo.org): Fixed /sbin/rc to kill
103 a cosmetic bug in the part that stops all the unneeded services.
104
105* rc-scripts 1.2.2 (8 Dec 2001)
106
107 10 Dec 2001; Added a localhost entry in /etc/hosts.
108
109 8 Dec 2001; Donny Davies (woodchip@gentoo.org): Added start-stop-daemon.c
110 to rc-scripts/sbin source. Moved rc-scripts/init.d/runscript.c to
111 rc-scripts/sbin/runscript.c. Added manpage for start-stop-daemon.
112 Start-stop-daemon is moved here from sysvinit by the way. There is stuff
113 in this ChangeLog that needs to be removed! Like the changes to hosts,
114 profile. /etc/{passwd,group} have minor UID and GID type fixes for
115 users ftp, postgres, xfs. Tweaked tarball.sh to not include CVS
116 directories.
117
118 29 Nov 2001; Donny Davies (woodchip@gentoo.org): Added a man directory
119 to rc-scripts. Checked in two manpages there, one for modules.autoload.5
120 and one for update-modules.8. These were adapted from Debian. Updated
121 tarball.sh to include the new man directory. Updated baselayout to install
122 these manpages. Slightly tweak the /etc/modules.autoload comments.
123
124 28 Nov 2001; Martin Schlemmer (azarah@gentoo.org): Updated /sbin/init
125 to work correctly with the 'gentoo=nodevfs' option, and cleaned
126 out old code.
127
128 Updated /etc/init.d/bootmisc with additional lock files to clean.
129
130 27 Nov 2001; Martin Schlemmer (azarah@gentoo.org): Updated
131 /etc/init.d/depscan.sh for a virtual 'use' depend, called 'logger'
132 that can be used for services that needs to have a logger started
133 before they are started. Updated /etc/conf.d/basic with $SYSLOGGER
134 that is used to define what loggers the 'logger' depend represent.
135
136 26 Nov 2001; Martin Schlemmer (azarah@gentoo.org): Updated
137 /etc/passwd and /etc/group with minor fixes to pass pwck and grpck.
138
139 25 Nov 2001; Martin Schlemmer (azarah@gentoo.org): Changed umask in
140 /etc/profile for the user to 077 for security.
141
142 Added a stop() function to /etc/init.d/clock. Also removed uneeded
143 'source /etc/rc.conf' line.
144
145 Updated /etc/init.d/hostname to set the hostname to 'localhost' if
146 /etc/hostname is invalid.
147
148 Updated /sbin/init to move the entries in /lib/dev-state to /dev before
149 running devfsd, as it did still not save settings properly. Also removed
150 old /dev-state/compat stuff.
151
152 25 Nov 2001; ncsd, the name service cache daemon script, has been removed
153 from the default "default" runlevel. It still exists in the archive so that
154 users who want/need it can add it easily.
155
156 25 Nov 2001; Updated the /etc/fstab; removed usbdevfs (explicitly mounted),
157 removed notail from the ext2 boot partition, other cleanups.
158
5 25 Nov 2001; Fixed init.d/clock script to work in UTC mode. 159 25 Nov 2001; Fixed init.d/clock script to work in UTC mode.
6 160
161 24 Nov 2001; Martin Schlemmer (azarah@gentoo.org): Added /etc/devfsd.conf
162 and updated /sbin/init to use a new scheme for saving /dev permissions.
163 Also moved /dev-state to /lib/dev-state which is a more standard location.
164
165 Fixed a ugly bug in /etc/init.d/depscan.sh. If a service depended on
166 itself, calling depscan.sh or changing runlevels cause a tempory effect
167 similar to a 'mini fork bomb'. Afterwards the depends was broken, and
168 changing runlevels did not want to work.
169
170 Updated /etc/init.d/halt.sh to terminate and display message for devfsd.
171 More cosmetic than anything else, but cant hurt with the new dev-state
172 scheme.
173
174 Updated /sbin/init to set the console log level to 1, so that bootup
175 can be much cleaner. Also updated /etc/init.d/modules not to have
176 a logger in it 'use' depends, as it should not be needed anymore.
177
178 Updated /sbin/rc to check if devfsd is still running between runlevel
179 changes.
180
181 Updated /etc/init.d/modules to run update-modules. We want to be sure
182 /etc/modules.conf is updated when running depmod -a.
183
184 Change ftp's uid to 21 in /etc/passwd (was the same as bind). Also
185 added a entry for xfs (X Font Server) in /etc/passwd and /etc/group.
186
187 Added /etc/init.d/net.ppp0, /etc/conf.d/net.ppp0 and
188 /usr/lib/ppp/chat-default as part of my new pppd scripts. Also
189 updated tarball.sh to handle ppp/chat-default.
190
191 Added /etc/skel/.bash* to make things cleaner.
192
193 Other minor changes.
194
