5 14 March 2002; Martin Schlemmer <azarah@gentoo.org>:
5 6
7 Fix the GID and UID of nobody and nogroup in /etc/passwd and
8 /etc/group to match those of Debian, FBSD and others. Thanks
9 to those who reported it, and Woodchip for looking up the
10 proper values.
11
12 Update /etc/init.d/net.eth0 to properly down DHCP interfaces.
13 This resolves bug #1150, thanks to Paul Fleischer.
14
15 11 March 2002; Martin Schlemmer <azarah@gentoo.org>:
16
17 Updated /etc/init.d/functions.sh not to use /usr/bin/basename,
18 as some users have /usr on seperate partition which is not
19 mounted when depscan.sh is run the first time.
20
21 Updated the checking for more than one service providing the
22 same virtual function in /etc/init.d/depscan.sh. It should
23 be working now, and this also fix a problem that when there is no
24 service providing a virtual, counter was used uninitialized.
25
26* rc-scripts 1.3.0 (10 March 2002)
27
28 10 March 2002; Martin Schlemmer <azarah@gentoo.org>: Resolved
29 bug #1021; updated /etc/init.d/consolefont for this.
30
31 Resolved bug #1029; updated /etc/init.d/net.eth0 for this.
32
33 Resolved bug #990; updated /etc/init.d/net.eth0, /etc/init.d/netmount
34 and /etc/init.d/localmount for this.
35
36 Lots of form/syntax cleanups, most things should be more
37 consistant now. Fixed fail detection/return values of lots of
38 scripts.
39
40 Lots of cleanup/fixes in the three main scripts behind our
41 rc-system, /sbin/rc, /etc/init.d/depscan.sh, /etc/init.d/runscript.sh
42
43 Fix a bug regarding a invalid $PATH for portage if /etc/init.d/functions.sh
44 is sourced in a ebuild.
45
46 Fix a bug that our rc-script wrapper introduced: Global variables
47 in scripts no longer worked. Updated /etc/init.d/runscript.sh for
48 this.
49
50 Implemented more error checking for the main startup code in /sbin/rc.
51 Also fixed try() for mounting /proc (maybe all mount commands).
52 The function worked fine in a simulated test, but in real life failed
53 to detect a error when mounting /proc (remember to thank Grant for
54 his UserMode ebuilds, and Guide).
55
56* rc-scripts 1.2.9 (6 March 2002)
57
58 6 March 2002; Martin Schlemmer <azarah@gentoo.org>: General form
59 updates and some piping fixes.
60
61 Updated /etc/inittab, /etc/init.d/xdm and /etc/X11/startDM.sh
62 to fix a problem where startDM.sh would be respawned repeatedly
63 if xdm was not in the default runlevel.
64
65* rc-scripts 1.2.8 (4 March 2002)
66
67 4 March 2002; Martin Schlemmer <azarah@gentoo.org>: add /etc/init.d/xdm,
68 /etc/X11/startDM.sh and updated /etc/inittab to fix the "dead key"
69 problem we had with xdm/gdm/kdm. We should move them to the
70 xfree ebuild later on when things settles down.
71
72 Added some sanity checks to /sbin/rc, /etc/init.d/runscripts.sh.
73
74 Added a basic $PATH to /etc/init.d/functions.sh to fix a problem
75 where we had a invalid $PATH on boot in some cases.
76
77 Updated /etc/init.d/keymap and /etc/init.d/consolefont to work with
78 the new sys-apps/kbd package.
79
80* rc-scripts 1.2.7 (3 March 2002)
81
82 3 March 2002; Martin Schlemmer <azarah@gentoo.org>: fixed the problem
83 of rc-scripts trying to start/stop a service multiple times if it
84 fails to do so. Updated /etc/init.d/runscript.sh and /sbin/rc for
85 this.
86
87 Fixing some variable declarations in /etc/init.d/runscript.sh caused
88 /etc/init.d/net.lo to fail on stop ($IFACE was set invalid). Fixed
89 this.
90
91 Added caching of the "depend() { need foo; } " lines, and updated
92 /etc/init.d/depscan.sh to touch the actual files less. This should
93 speedup dependancy caching a lot, especially on slow machines.
94
95 Updated /etc/passwd to have users with no shell defined, use /bin/false
96 for security.
97
98 Update /etc/fstab to mention /dev/shm since we dont mount it anymore.
99
100 1 March 2002; Martin Schlemmer <azarah@gentoo.org>: added a wrapper for
101 sourcing the rc-scripts to eliminate syntax errors. Thanks to
102 Karl Trygve Kalleberg (aka karltk) for the idea. Updated
103 /etc/init.d/depscan.sh, /etc/init.d/functions.sh and
104 /etc/init.d/runscript.sh for this (added wrap_rcscript() function).
105
106 Removed stopping of dependant services that have current service as
107 a 'use'dependancy ... should be less confusing now.
108 Updated /etc/init.d/runscript.sh for this.
109
110 28 Feb 2002; Martin Schlemmer <azarah@gentoo.org>: add /etc/conf.d/local.start
111 and /etc/conf.d/local.stop for adding any misc programs to startup. This
112 should pretty much have /etc/init.d/ static, except for baselayout updates,
113 etc.
114
115 27 Feb 2002; Martin Schlemmer <azarah@gentoo.org>: in some wierd cases,
116 a redundent /dev/.devfsd on a unmounted /dev can cause problems. Fixed
117 this in /sbin/rc.
118
119 Added the patches from Grant Goodyear (aka g2boojum) to enable us to
120 use a ramdisk to store the contents of ${svcdir}. Updated /sbin/rc,
121 /etc/init.d/functions.sh and /etc/init.d/checkroot for this.
122
123 26 Feb 2002; Martin Schlemmer <azarah@gentoo.org>: fix my brain dead
124 update of the 25th. It really should keep "gentoo=nodevfs" in mind.
125 Also added 'get_bootparam()' to help in retrieving kernel options.
126 Updated /etc/init.d/functions.sh, /etc/init.d/checkroot and /sbin/rc
127 for this.
128
129 Updated /etc/init.d/consolefont to work without devfs as well.
130
131 When rebooting or shutting down, a service should not fail to stop
132 if a service it depends on, fails. Updated /etc/init.d/runscript.sh
133 for this.
134
135 25 Feb 2002; Martin Schlemmer <azarah@gentoo.org>: added a check if
136 /dev is mounted when creating entries for /etc/mtab. This should solve a
137 invalid entry or /dev being mounted even with 'gentoo=nodevfs' option.
138 Updated /etc/init.d/checkroot for this.
139
140 17 Feb 2002: Daniel Robbins <drobbins@gentoo.org>: Made "xfs" the default
141 filesystem in /etc/fstab (from ReiserFS) and removed "notail" option (it's
142 just in a comment now)
143
144 17 Feb 2002: Martin Schlemmer (azarah@gentoo.org): more fixes to 'after' and
145 'before', updated /etc/init.d/runscript.sh for this. This should fix
146 services not getting started in the correct order in a tight loop, services
147 getting stopped out of order, and some other sanity checks. Updated
148 rc-script.sh for updated help.
149
6 15 Feb 2002: Martin Schlemmer (azarah@gentoo.org): update 150 15 Feb 2002: Martin Schlemmer (azarah@gentoo.org): update /etc/profile to

10 and 'after' will only work currently for a change of runlevel. 152 'before' and 'after' will only work currently for a change of runlevel.
11 Updated /etc/init.d/depscan.sh, /etc/init.d/runscript.sh and 153 Updated /etc/init.d/depscan.sh, /etc/init.d/runscript.sh and /sbin/rc for it.
12 /sbin/rc for it.

16 thanks Tod.
