5* rc-scripts 1.3.3 (5 April 2002)
6
7 5 April 2002; Martin Schlemmer <azarah@gentoo.org>:
8
9 Move /etc/init.d/{depscan.sh,runscript.sh,functions.sh} to /sbin.
10 This is done to try and ensure system integrity.
11
12 1 April 2002; Martin Schlemmer <azarah@gentoo.org>:
13
14 Add quotes to the "export INPUTRC=/etc/inputrc" line to resolve bug #1391.
15
16 Add a error message to /etc/init.d/consolefont, resolving bug #1415.
17
18 Add a bash check to the code that sets the prompt, fixing bug #1078.
19
20* rc-scripts 1.3.2 (24 Mar 2002)
21
22 24 March 2002; Martin Schlemmer <azarah@gentoo.org>:
23
24 Resolve bug #1274. Updated /etc/init.d/hostname and /etc/init.d/bootmisc
25 for this.
26
27 With the "before" and "after" stuff, recursion levels was getting too high,
28 and with some cases, things just plain did not work as it should. Reworked
29 things to to lower the levels of recursion and get the order right. Updated
30 /etc/init.d/runscript.sh for this.
31
32 Fixed a problem in /sbin/rc and /etc/init.d/runscript.sh where
33 ${svcdir}/softlevel did not always exist, but runscript.sh tried to open it.
34
35 Enhance --quiet support. Updated /etc/init.d/functions.sh for this.
36
37 Remove /etc/pwdb.conf, as pwdb already install a copy of this.
38
39 Remove /etc/pam.d/{rexec,rlogin,rsh} as pam already install this.
40
41 Added $INPUTRC to /etc/profile, since too many people keep on bugging me,
42 and it seems it has fallen now to my discression.
43
44* rc-scripts 1.3.1 (23 Mar 2002)
45
46 23 March 2002; Daniel Robbins <drobbins@gentoo.org>: init.d/net.eth0: fix for
47 DHCP lease release from Jim Nutt.
48
49 23 March 2002; Daniel Robbins <drobbins@gentoo.org>: rolling a new release
50 since there are a lot of important bug fixes in here that are needed.
51
52 23 March 2002; Martin Schlemmer <azarah@gentoo.org>:
53
54 Resolve bug #1292.
55
56 Remove the extra 'depmod -a' in /etc/init.d/modules, thanks to
57 Spidler.
58
59 21 March 2002; Martin Schlemmer <azarah@gentoo.org>:
60
61 Update /sbin/rc to fix a 'cat mounts' instead of the correct
62 version, 'cat /proc/mounts'.
63
64 19 March 2002; Martin Schlemmer <azarah@gentoo.org>:
65
66 Add initial support for the --quiet flag that suppress output.
67
68 18 March 2002; Martin Schlemmer <azarah@gentoo.org>:
69
70 Remove the 'try' from 'try /etc/init.d/depscan.sh' in /sbin/rc
71 as not all errors by depscan.sh is critical. It should be
72 reworked to do better error handeling.
73
74 14 March 2002; Martin Schlemmer <azarah@gentoo.org>:
75
76 Fix the GID and UID of nobody and nogroup in /etc/passwd and
77 /etc/group to match those of Debian, FBSD and others. Thanks
78 to those who reported it, and Woodchip for looking up the
79 proper values.
80
81 Update /etc/init.d/net.eth0 to properly down DHCP interfaces.
82 This resolves bug #1150, thanks to Paul Fleischer.
83
84 11 March 2002; Martin Schlemmer <azarah@gentoo.org>:
85
86 Updated /etc/init.d/functions.sh not to use /usr/bin/basename,
87 as some users have /usr on seperate partition which is not
88 mounted when depscan.sh is run the first time.
89
90 Updated the checking for more than one service providing the
91 same virtual function in /etc/init.d/depscan.sh. It should
92 be working now, and this also fix a problem that when there is no
93 service providing a virtual, counter was used uninitialized.
94
95* rc-scripts 1.3.0 (10 March 2002)
96
97 10 March 2002; Martin Schlemmer <azarah@gentoo.org>: Resolved
98 bug #1021; updated /etc/init.d/consolefont for this.
99
100 Resolved bug #1029; updated /etc/init.d/net.eth0 for this.
101
102 Resolved bug #990; updated /etc/init.d/net.eth0, /etc/init.d/netmount
103 and /etc/init.d/localmount for this.
104
105 Lots of form/syntax cleanups, most things should be more
106 consistant now. Fixed fail detection/return values of lots of
107 scripts.
108
109 Lots of cleanup/fixes in the three main scripts behind our
110 rc-system, /sbin/rc, /etc/init.d/depscan.sh, /etc/init.d/runscript.sh
111
112 Fix a bug regarding a invalid $PATH for portage if /etc/init.d/functions.sh
113 is sourced in a ebuild.
114
115 Fix a bug that our rc-script wrapper introduced: Global variables
116 in scripts no longer worked. Updated /etc/init.d/runscript.sh for
117 this.
118
119 Implemented more error checking for the main startup code in /sbin/rc.
120 Also fixed try() for mounting /proc (maybe all mount commands).
121 The function worked fine in a simulated test, but in real life failed
122 to detect a error when mounting /proc (remember to thank Grant for
123 his UserMode ebuilds, and Guide).
124
125* rc-scripts 1.2.9 (6 March 2002)
126
127 6 March 2002; Martin Schlemmer <azarah@gentoo.org>: General form
128 updates and some piping fixes.
129
130 Updated /etc/inittab, /etc/init.d/xdm and /etc/X11/startDM.sh
131 to fix a problem where startDM.sh would be respawned repeatedly
132 if xdm was not in the default runlevel.
133
134* rc-scripts 1.2.8 (4 March 2002)
135
136 4 March 2002; Martin Schlemmer <azarah@gentoo.org>: add /etc/init.d/xdm,
137 /etc/X11/startDM.sh and updated /etc/inittab to fix the "dead key"
138 problem we had with xdm/gdm/kdm. We should move them to the
139 xfree ebuild later on when things settles down.
140
141 Added some sanity checks to /sbin/rc, /etc/init.d/runscripts.sh.
142
143 Added a basic $PATH to /etc/init.d/functions.sh to fix a problem
144 where we had a invalid $PATH on boot in some cases.
145
146 Updated /etc/init.d/keymap and /etc/init.d/consolefont to work with
147 the new sys-apps/kbd package.
148
149* rc-scripts 1.2.7 (3 March 2002)
150
151 3 March 2002; Martin Schlemmer <azarah@gentoo.org>: fixed the problem
152 of rc-scripts trying to start/stop a service multiple times if it
153 fails to do so. Updated /etc/init.d/runscript.sh and /sbin/rc for
154 this.
155
156 Fixing some variable declarations in /etc/init.d/runscript.sh caused
157 /etc/init.d/net.lo to fail on stop ($IFACE was set invalid). Fixed
158 this.
159
160 Added caching of the "depend() { need foo; } " lines, and updated
161 /etc/init.d/depscan.sh to touch the actual files less. This should
162 speedup dependancy caching a lot, especially on slow machines.
163
164 Updated /etc/passwd to have users with no shell defined, use /bin/false
165 for security.
166
167 Update /etc/fstab to mention /dev/shm since we dont mount it anymore.
168
169 1 March 2002; Martin Schlemmer <azarah@gentoo.org>: added a wrapper for
170 sourcing the rc-scripts to eliminate syntax errors. Thanks to
171 Karl Trygve Kalleberg (aka karltk) for the idea. Updated
172 /etc/init.d/depscan.sh, /etc/init.d/functions.sh and
173 /etc/init.d/runscript.sh for this (added wrap_rcscript() function).
174
175 Removed stopping of dependant services that have current service as
176 a 'use'dependancy ... should be less confusing now.
177 Updated /etc/init.d/runscript.sh for this.
178
179 28 Feb 2002; Martin Schlemmer <azarah@gentoo.org>: add /etc/conf.d/local.start
180 and /etc/conf.d/local.stop for adding any misc programs to startup. This
181 should pretty much have /etc/init.d/ static, except for baselayout updates,
182 etc.
183
184 27 Feb 2002; Martin Schlemmer <azarah@gentoo.org>: in some wierd cases,
185 a redundent /dev/.devfsd on a unmounted /dev can cause problems. Fixed
186 this in /sbin/rc.
187
188 Added the patches from Grant Goodyear (aka g2boojum) to enable us to
189 use a ramdisk to store the contents of ${svcdir}. Updated /sbin/rc,
190 /etc/init.d/functions.sh and /etc/init.d/checkroot for this.
191
192 26 Feb 2002; Martin Schlemmer <azarah@gentoo.org>: fix my brain dead
193 update of the 25th. It really should keep "gentoo=nodevfs" in mind.
194 Also added 'get_bootparam()' to help in retrieving kernel options.
195 Updated /etc/init.d/functions.sh, /etc/init.d/checkroot and /sbin/rc
196 for this.
197
198 Updated /etc/init.d/consolefont to work without devfs as well.
199
200 When rebooting or shutting down, a service should not fail to stop
201 if a service it depends on, fails. Updated /etc/init.d/runscript.sh
202 for this.
203
204 25 Feb 2002; Martin Schlemmer <azarah@gentoo.org>: added a check if
205 /dev is mounted when creating entries for /etc/mtab. This should solve a
206 invalid entry or /dev being mounted even with 'gentoo=nodevfs' option.
207 Updated /etc/init.d/checkroot for this.
208
209 17 Feb 2002: Daniel Robbins <drobbins@gentoo.org>: Made "xfs" the default
210 filesystem in /etc/fstab (from ReiserFS) and removed "notail" option (it's
211 just in a comment now)
212
213 17 Feb 2002: Martin Schlemmer (azarah@gentoo.org): more fixes to 'after' and
214 'before', updated /etc/init.d/runscript.sh for this. This should fix
215 services not getting started in the correct order in a tight loop, services
216 getting stopped out of order, and some other sanity checks. Updated
217 rc-script.sh for updated help.
218
219 15 Feb 2002: Martin Schlemmer (azarah@gentoo.org): update /etc/profile to
220 resolve bug #588. Reimplemented things a bit, and added the 'after' type.
221 'before' and 'after' will only work currently for a change of runlevel.
222 Updated /etc/init.d/depscan.sh, /etc/init.d/runscript.sh and /sbin/rc for it.
223
224 13 Feb 2002: Martin Schlemmer (azarah@gentoo.org): add some more entries to
225 /etc/devfsd.conf to make alsa users life easier ... thanks Tod.
226
227 12 Feb 2002: Martin Schlemmer (azarah@gentoo.org): Some more cleanups to
228 /etc/init.d/depscan.sh and /etc/init.d/runscript.sh.
229
230 Fixed some services not starting again when restarting a service.
231 Seems simple is still the best way.
232
233 Fixed some other problems created with feature additions and cleanups.
234
235 11 Feb 2002: Martin Schlemmer (azarah@gentoo.org): General cleanups to
236 /etc/init.d/depscan.sh and /etc/init.d/runscript.sh.
237
238 Added 'before *' to /etc/init.d/checkroot to make sure it gets
239 started first.
240
241 Added 'use *' to /etc/init.d/local to make sure it gets started
242 last.
243
244 10 Feb 2002: Martin Schlemmer (azarah@gentoo.org): Fixed /sbin/rc
245 to stop a service on change of runlevel if it is in 'use' by
246 another service.
247
248 Added the 'provide' depend type for creating virtual services.
249 Updated /etc/init.d/depscan.sh for this.
250
251 Added the 'before' depend type. This is more for changing the
252 order services start in. Updated /etc/init.d/depscan.sh and
253 /etc/init.d/functions.sh for this.
254
255 Updated /etc/init.d/depscan.sh to work with '*' as argument for
256 dependancy types. This can be used with 'use' and 'before' to
257 start a script last or first respectively.
258
259 Added save_options() and get_options() to /etc/init.d/functions.sh
260 for saving misc settings between startup/shutdown. Updated
261 /etc/init.d/net.eth0 to use these and properly down virtual
262 interfaces.
263
264 6 Feb 2002: Martin Schlemmer (azarah@gentoo.org): updated both
265 /etc/init.d/bootmisc and /etc/init.d/keymaps to be quiet on no
266 errors.
267
268* rc-scripts 1.2.6 (6 Feb 2002)
269
270 2 Feb 2002: Martin Schlemmer (azarah@gentoo.org): updated /etc/net.eth0
271 to specify the gateway device via the $gateway variable (something like
272 gateway="eth0/192.168.0.1").
273
274 2 Feb 2002: Martin Schlemmer (azarah@gentoo.org): added rc-script
275 /etc/init.d/numlock, for enabling numlock at boot.
276
277 29 Jan 2002: Martin Schlemmer (azarah@gentoo.org): hopefully the
278 last fix to /etc/init.d/netmount to umount cleanly. This fix
279 implements a retry if not successful the first time, and will
280 kill processess using the mount. Also small type-o fix to
281 /etc/init.d/halt.sh.
282
283 27 Jan 2002: Donny Davies (woodchip@gentoo.org): security fix to
284 /etc/pam.d/sshd,login,chsh: added pam_shells.so to the stack.
285 Fixed /etc/passwd,group for user/group mysql.
286
287 27 Jan 2002: Martin Schlemmer (azarah@gentoo.org): added charset
288 map file support to /etc/init.d/consolefont and the setting to
289 /etc/rc.conf.

6 in the restart stuff of /etc/init.d/runscript.sh that caused 295 in the restart stuff of /etc/init.d/runscript.sh that caused
7 a restart of a 'net' service not to restart services again 296 a restart of a 'net' service not to restart services again
8 that depended on it. 297 that depended on it.
9
10 Change the way /etc/mtab is created in /etc/init.d/checkroot to
11 be more generic.
