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