5* rc-scripts 1.2.8 (4 March 2002)
5 6
7 4 March 2002; Martin Schlemmer <azarah@gentoo.org>: add /etc/init.d/xdm,
8 /etc/X11/startDM.sh and updated /etc/inittab to fix the "dead key"
9 problem we had with xdm/gdm/kdm. We should move them to the
10 xfree ebuild later on when things settles down.
11
12 Added some sanity checks to /sbin/rc, /etc/init.d/runscripts.sh.
13
14 Added a basic $PATH to /etc/init.d/functions.sh to fix a problem
15 where we had a invalid $PATH on boot in some cases.
16
17 Updated /etc/init.d/keymap and /etc/init.d/consolefont to work with
18 the new sys-apps/kbd package.
19
20* rc-scripts 1.2.7 (3 March 2002)
21
22 3 March 2002; Martin Schlemmer <azarah@gentoo.org>: fixed the problem
23 of rc-scripts trying to start/stop a service multiple times if it
24 fails to do so. Updated /etc/init.d/runscript.sh and /sbin/rc for
25 this.
26
27 Fixing some variable declarations in /etc/init.d/runscript.sh caused
28 /etc/init.d/net.lo to fail on stop ($IFACE was set invalid). Fixed
29 this.
30
31 Added caching of the "depend() { need foo; } " lines, and updated
32 /etc/init.d/depscan.sh to touch the actual files less. This should
33 speedup dependancy caching a lot, especially on slow machines.
34
35 Updated /etc/passwd to have users with no shell defined, use /bin/false
36 for security.
37
38 Update /etc/fstab to mention /dev/shm since we dont mount it anymore.
39
40 1 March 2002; Martin Schlemmer <azarah@gentoo.org>: added a wrapper for
41 sourcing the rc-scripts to eliminate syntax errors. Thanks to
42 Karl Trygve Kalleberg (aka karltk) for the idea. Updated
43 /etc/init.d/depscan.sh, /etc/init.d/functions.sh and
44 /etc/init.d/runscript.sh for this (added wrap_rcscript() function).
45
46 Removed stopping of dependant services that have current service as
47 a 'use'dependancy ... should be less confusing now.
48 Updated /etc/init.d/runscript.sh for this.
49
50 28 Feb 2002; Martin Schlemmer <azarah@gentoo.org>: add /etc/conf.d/local.start
51 and /etc/conf.d/local.stop for adding any misc programs to startup. This
52 should pretty much have /etc/init.d/ static, except for baselayout updates,
53 etc.
54
55 27 Feb 2002; Martin Schlemmer <azarah@gentoo.org>: in some wierd cases,
56 a redundent /dev/.devfsd on a unmounted /dev can cause problems. Fixed
57 this in /sbin/rc.
58
59 Added the patches from Grant Goodyear (aka g2boojum) to enable us to
60 use a ramdisk to store the contents of ${svcdir}. Updated /sbin/rc,
61 /etc/init.d/functions.sh and /etc/init.d/checkroot for this.
62
63 26 Feb 2002; Martin Schlemmer <azarah@gentoo.org>: fix my brain dead
64 update of the 25th. It really should keep "gentoo=nodevfs" in mind.
65 Also added 'get_bootparam()' to help in retrieving kernel options.
66 Updated /etc/init.d/functions.sh, /etc/init.d/checkroot and /sbin/rc
67 for this.
68
69 Updated /etc/init.d/consolefont to work without devfs as well.
70
71 When rebooting or shutting down, a service should not fail to stop
72 if a service it depends on, fails. Updated /etc/init.d/runscript.sh
73 for this.
74
75 25 Feb 2002; Martin Schlemmer <azarah@gentoo.org>: added a check if
76 /dev is mounted when creating entries for /etc/mtab. This should solve a
77 invalid entry or /dev being mounted even with 'gentoo=nodevfs' option.
78 Updated /etc/init.d/checkroot for this.
79
80 17 Feb 2002: Daniel Robbins <drobbins@gentoo.org>: Made "xfs" the default
81 filesystem in /etc/fstab (from ReiserFS) and removed "notail" option (it's
82 just in a comment now)
83
84 17 Feb 2002: Martin Schlemmer (azarah@gentoo.org): more fixes to 'after' and
85 'before', updated /etc/init.d/runscript.sh for this. This should fix
86 services not getting started in the correct order in a tight loop, services
87 getting stopped out of order, and some other sanity checks. Updated
88 rc-script.sh for updated help.
89
6 15 Feb 2002: Martin Schlemmer (azarah@gentoo.org): update 90 15 Feb 2002: Martin Schlemmer (azarah@gentoo.org): update /etc/profile to
7 /etc/profile to resolve bug #588.
