5* rc-scripts 1.3.2 (24 Mar 2002)
5 6
7 24 March 2002; Martin Schlemmer <azarah@gentoo.org>:
8
9 Resolve bug #1274. Updated /etc/init.d/hostname and /etc/init.d/bootmisc
10 for this.
11
12 With the "before" and "after" stuff, recursion levels was getting too high,
13 and with some cases, things just plain did not work as it should. Reworked
14 things to to lower the levels of recursion and get the order right. Updated
15 /etc/init.d/runscript.sh for this.
16
17 Fixed a problem in /sbin/rc and /etc/init.d/runscript.sh where
18 ${svcdir}/softlevel did not always exist, but runscript.sh tried to open it.
19
20 Enhance --quiet support. Updated /etc/init.d/functions.sh for this.
21
22 Remove /etc/pwdb.conf, as pwdb already install a copy of this.
23
24 Remove /etc/pam.d/{rexec,rlogin,rsh} as pam already install this.
25
26 Added $INPUTRC to /etc/profile, since too many people keep on bugging me,
27 and it seems it has fallen now to my discression.
28
29* rc-scripts 1.3.1 (23 Mar 2002)
30
31 23 March 2002; Daniel Robbins <drobbins@gentoo.org>: init.d/net.eth0: fix for
32 DHCP lease release from Jim Nutt.
33
34 23 March 2002; Daniel Robbins <drobbins@gentoo.org>: rolling a new release
35 since there are a lot of important bug fixes in here that are needed.
36
37 23 March 2002; Martin Schlemmer <azarah@gentoo.org>:
38
39 Resolve bug #1292.
40
41 Remove the extra 'depmod -a' in /etc/init.d/modules, thanks to
42 Spidler.
43
44 21 March 2002; Martin Schlemmer <azarah@gentoo.org>:
45
46 Update /sbin/rc to fix a 'cat mounts' instead of the correct
47 version, 'cat /proc/mounts'.
48
49 19 March 2002; Martin Schlemmer <azarah@gentoo.org>:
50
51 Add initial support for the --quiet flag that suppress output.
52
53 18 March 2002; Martin Schlemmer <azarah@gentoo.org>:
54
55 Remove the 'try' from 'try /etc/init.d/depscan.sh' in /sbin/rc
56 as not all errors by depscan.sh is critical. It should be
57 reworked to do better error handeling.
58
59 14 March 2002; Martin Schlemmer <azarah@gentoo.org>:
60
61 Fix the GID and UID of nobody and nogroup in /etc/passwd and
62 /etc/group to match those of Debian, FBSD and others. Thanks
63 to those who reported it, and Woodchip for looking up the
64 proper values.
65
66 Update /etc/init.d/net.eth0 to properly down DHCP interfaces.
67 This resolves bug #1150, thanks to Paul Fleischer.
68
69 11 March 2002; Martin Schlemmer <azarah@gentoo.org>:
70
71 Updated /etc/init.d/functions.sh not to use /usr/bin/basename,
72 as some users have /usr on seperate partition which is not
73 mounted when depscan.sh is run the first time.
74
75 Updated the checking for more than one service providing the
76 same virtual function in /etc/init.d/depscan.sh. It should
77 be working now, and this also fix a problem that when there is no
78 service providing a virtual, counter was used uninitialized.
79
80* rc-scripts 1.3.0 (10 March 2002)
81
82 10 March 2002; Martin Schlemmer <azarah@gentoo.org>: Resolved
83 bug #1021; updated /etc/init.d/consolefont for this.
84
85 Resolved bug #1029; updated /etc/init.d/net.eth0 for this.
86
87 Resolved bug #990; updated /etc/init.d/net.eth0, /etc/init.d/netmount
88 and /etc/init.d/localmount for this.
89
90 Lots of form/syntax cleanups, most things should be more
91 consistant now. Fixed fail detection/return values of lots of
92 scripts.
93
94 Lots of cleanup/fixes in the three main scripts behind our
95 rc-system, /sbin/rc, /etc/init.d/depscan.sh, /etc/init.d/runscript.sh
96
97 Fix a bug regarding a invalid $PATH for portage if /etc/init.d/functions.sh
98 is sourced in a ebuild.
99
100 Fix a bug that our rc-script wrapper introduced: Global variables
101 in scripts no longer worked. Updated /etc/init.d/runscript.sh for
102 this.
103
104 Implemented more error checking for the main startup code in /sbin/rc.
105 Also fixed try() for mounting /proc (maybe all mount commands).
106 The function worked fine in a simulated test, but in real life failed
107 to detect a error when mounting /proc (remember to thank Grant for
108 his UserMode ebuilds, and Guide).
109
110* rc-scripts 1.2.9 (6 March 2002)
111
112 6 March 2002; Martin Schlemmer <azarah@gentoo.org>: General form
113 updates and some piping fixes.
114
115 Updated /etc/inittab, /etc/init.d/xdm and /etc/X11/startDM.sh
116 to fix a problem where startDM.sh would be respawned repeatedly
117 if xdm was not in the default runlevel.
118
119* rc-scripts 1.2.8 (4 March 2002)
120
121 4 March 2002; Martin Schlemmer <azarah@gentoo.org>: add /etc/init.d/xdm,
122 /etc/X11/startDM.sh and updated /etc/inittab to fix the "dead key"
123 problem we had with xdm/gdm/kdm. We should move them to the
124 xfree ebuild later on when things settles down.
125
126 Added some sanity checks to /sbin/rc, /etc/init.d/runscripts.sh.
127
128 Added a basic $PATH to /etc/init.d/functions.sh to fix a problem
129 where we had a invalid $PATH on boot in some cases.
130
131 Updated /etc/init.d/keymap and /etc/init.d/consolefont to work with
132 the new sys-apps/kbd package.
133
134* rc-scripts 1.2.7 (3 March 2002)
135
136 3 March 2002; Martin Schlemmer <azarah@gentoo.org>: fixed the problem
137 of rc-scripts trying to start/stop a service multiple times if it
138 fails to do so. Updated /etc/init.d/runscript.sh and /sbin/rc for
139 this.
140
141 Fixing some variable declarations in /etc/init.d/runscript.sh caused
142 /etc/init.d/net.lo to fail on stop ($IFACE was set invalid). Fixed
143 this.
144
145 Added caching of the "depend() { need foo; } " lines, and updated
146 /etc/init.d/depscan.sh to touch the actual files less. This should
147 speedup dependancy caching a lot, especially on slow machines.
148
149 Updated /etc/passwd to have users with no shell defined, use /bin/false
150 for security.
151
152 Update /etc/fstab to mention /dev/shm since we dont mount it anymore.
153
154 1 March 2002; Martin Schlemmer <azarah@gentoo.org>: added a wrapper for
155 sourcing the rc-scripts to eliminate syntax errors. Thanks to
156 Karl Trygve Kalleberg (aka karltk) for the idea. Updated
157 /etc/init.d/depscan.sh, /etc/init.d/functions.sh and
158 /etc/init.d/runscript.sh for this (added wrap_rcscript() function).
159
160 Removed stopping of dependant services that have current service as
161 a 'use'dependancy ... should be less confusing now.
162 Updated /etc/init.d/runscript.sh for this.
163
164 28 Feb 2002; Martin Schlemmer <azarah@gentoo.org>: add /etc/conf.d/local.start
165 and /etc/conf.d/local.stop for adding any misc programs to startup. This
166 should pretty much have /etc/init.d/ static, except for baselayout updates,
167 etc.
168
169 27 Feb 2002; Martin Schlemmer <azarah@gentoo.org>: in some wierd cases,
170 a redundent /dev/.devfsd on a unmounted /dev can cause problems. Fixed
171 this in /sbin/rc.
172
173 Added the patches from Grant Goodyear (aka g2boojum) to enable us to
174 use a ramdisk to store the contents of ${svcdir}. Updated /sbin/rc,
175 /etc/init.d/functions.sh and /etc/init.d/checkroot for this.
176
177 26 Feb 2002; Martin Schlemmer <azarah@gentoo.org>: fix my brain dead
178 update of the 25th. It really should keep "gentoo=nodevfs" in mind.
179 Also added 'get_bootparam()' to help in retrieving kernel options.
180 Updated /etc/init.d/functions.sh, /etc/init.d/checkroot and /sbin/rc
181 for this.
182
183 Updated /etc/init.d/consolefont to work without devfs as well.
184
185 When rebooting or shutting down, a service should not fail to stop
186 if a service it depends on, fails. Updated /etc/init.d/runscript.sh
187 for this.
188
189 25 Feb 2002; Martin Schlemmer <azarah@gentoo.org>: added a check if
190 /dev is mounted when creating entries for /etc/mtab. This should solve a
191 invalid entry or /dev being mounted even with 'gentoo=nodevfs' option.
192 Updated /etc/init.d/checkroot for this.
193
194 17 Feb 2002: Daniel Robbins <drobbins@gentoo.org>: Made "xfs" the default
195 filesystem in /etc/fstab (from ReiserFS) and removed "notail" option (it's
196 just in a comment now)
197
198 17 Feb 2002: Martin Schlemmer (azarah@gentoo.org): more fixes to 'after' and
199 'before', updated /etc/init.d/runscript.sh for this. This should fix
200 services not getting started in the correct order in a tight loop, services
201 getting stopped out of order, and some other sanity checks. Updated
202 rc-script.sh for updated help.
203
6 15 Feb 2002: Martin Schlemmer (azarah@gentoo.org): update 204 15 Feb 2002: Martin Schlemmer (azarah@gentoo.org): update /etc/profile to
