5* rc-scripts 1.3.4 (21 April 2002)
5 6
7 21 April 2002; Martin Schlemmer <azarah@gentoo.org>:
8
9 Add /sbin/rc-envupdate.sh to speedup updating of /etc/profile.env,
10 and /etc/csh.env. Update /etc/init.d/bootmisc to use this.
11
12 Implement the status commandline argument. Updated /sbin/runscript.sh
13 and /sbin/rc-help.sh for this.
14
15 Fix /sbin/depscan.sh to honour NEED and USE overriding BEFORE
16 and AFTER.
17
18 12 April 2002; Martin Schlemmer <azarah@gentoo.org>:
19
20 Update /etc/init.d/bootmisc to create /var/run/utmpx. This
21 is needed, else /usr/bin/newgrp segfault.
22
23 11 April 2002; Martin Schlemmer <azarah@gentoo.org>:
24
25 Update /etc/skel/.bash_profile to make it tcsh compadible.
26 Thanks to Väinö Järvelä for this fix.
27
28 Update /etc/profile to also set the PS? variables if $SHELL
29 is set to /bin/sh. This should make prompt colours in
30 bootstrap work again.
31
32 Move LVM stuff to checkfs to ensure that they get fscked.
33 This resolves bug #1552.
34
35* rc-scripts 1.3.3 (5 April 2002)
36
37 5 April 2002; Martin Schlemmer <azarah@gentoo.org>:
38
39 Move /etc/init.d/{depscan.sh,runscript.sh,functions.sh} to /sbin.
40 This is done to try and ensure system integrity.
41
42 1 April 2002; Martin Schlemmer <azarah@gentoo.org>:
43
44 Add quotes to the "export INPUTRC=/etc/inputrc" line to resolve bug #1391.
45
46 Add a error message to /etc/init.d/consolefont, resolving bug #1415.
47
48 Add a bash check to the code that sets the prompt, fixing bug #1078.
49
50* rc-scripts 1.3.2 (24 Mar 2002)
51
52 24 March 2002; Martin Schlemmer <azarah@gentoo.org>:
53
54 Resolve bug #1274. Updated /etc/init.d/hostname and /etc/init.d/bootmisc
55 for this.
56
57 With the "before" and "after" stuff, recursion levels was getting too high,
58 and with some cases, things just plain did not work as it should. Reworked
59 things to to lower the levels of recursion and get the order right. Updated
60 /etc/init.d/runscript.sh for this.
61
62 Fixed a problem in /sbin/rc and /etc/init.d/runscript.sh where
63 ${svcdir}/softlevel did not always exist, but runscript.sh tried to open it.
64
65 Enhance --quiet support. Updated /etc/init.d/functions.sh for this.
66
67 Remove /etc/pwdb.conf, as pwdb already install a copy of this.
68
69 Remove /etc/pam.d/{rexec,rlogin,rsh} as pam already install this.
70
71 Added $INPUTRC to /etc/profile, since too many people keep on bugging me,
72 and it seems it has fallen now to my discression.
73
74* rc-scripts 1.3.1 (23 Mar 2002)
75
76 23 March 2002; Daniel Robbins <drobbins@gentoo.org>: init.d/net.eth0: fix for
77 DHCP lease release from Jim Nutt.
78
79 23 March 2002; Daniel Robbins <drobbins@gentoo.org>: rolling a new release
80 since there are a lot of important bug fixes in here that are needed.
81
82 23 March 2002; Martin Schlemmer <azarah@gentoo.org>:
83
84 Resolve bug #1292.
85
86 Remove the extra 'depmod -a' in /etc/init.d/modules, thanks to
87 Spidler.
88
89 21 March 2002; Martin Schlemmer <azarah@gentoo.org>:
90
91 Update /sbin/rc to fix a 'cat mounts' instead of the correct
92 version, 'cat /proc/mounts'.
93
94 19 March 2002; Martin Schlemmer <azarah@gentoo.org>:
95
96 Add initial support for the --quiet flag that suppress output.
97
98 18 March 2002; Martin Schlemmer <azarah@gentoo.org>:
99
100 Remove the 'try' from 'try /etc/init.d/depscan.sh' in /sbin/rc
101 as not all errors by depscan.sh is critical. It should be
102 reworked to do better error handeling.
103
104 14 March 2002; Martin Schlemmer <azarah@gentoo.org>:
105
106 Fix the GID and UID of nobody and nogroup in /etc/passwd and
107 /etc/group to match those of Debian, FBSD and others. Thanks
108 to those who reported it, and Woodchip for looking up the
109 proper values.
110
111 Update /etc/init.d/net.eth0 to properly down DHCP interfaces.
112 This resolves bug #1150, thanks to Paul Fleischer.
113
114 11 March 2002; Martin Schlemmer <azarah@gentoo.org>:
115
116 Updated /etc/init.d/functions.sh not to use /usr/bin/basename,
117 as some users have /usr on seperate partition which is not
118 mounted when depscan.sh is run the first time.
119
120 Updated the checking for more than one service providing the
121 same virtual function in /etc/init.d/depscan.sh. It should
122 be working now, and this also fix a problem that when there is no
123 service providing a virtual, counter was used uninitialized.
124
125* rc-scripts 1.3.0 (10 March 2002)
126
127 10 March 2002; Martin Schlemmer <azarah@gentoo.org>: Resolved
128 bug #1021; updated /etc/init.d/consolefont for this.
129
130 Resolved bug #1029; updated /etc/init.d/net.eth0 for this.
131
132 Resolved bug #990; updated /etc/init.d/net.eth0, /etc/init.d/netmount
133 and /etc/init.d/localmount for this.
134
135 Lots of form/syntax cleanups, most things should be more
136 consistant now. Fixed fail detection/return values of lots of
137 scripts.
138
139 Lots of cleanup/fixes in the three main scripts behind our
140 rc-system, /sbin/rc, /etc/init.d/depscan.sh, /etc/init.d/runscript.sh
141
142 Fix a bug regarding a invalid $PATH for portage if /etc/init.d/functions.sh
143 is sourced in a ebuild.
144
145 Fix a bug that our rc-script wrapper introduced: Global variables
146 in scripts no longer worked. Updated /etc/init.d/runscript.sh for
147 this.
148
149 Implemented more error checking for the main startup code in /sbin/rc.
150 Also fixed try() for mounting /proc (maybe all mount commands).
151 The function worked fine in a simulated test, but in real life failed
152 to detect a error when mounting /proc (remember to thank Grant for
153 his UserMode ebuilds, and Guide).
154
155* rc-scripts 1.2.9 (6 March 2002)
156
157 6 March 2002; Martin Schlemmer <azarah@gentoo.org>: General form
158 updates and some piping fixes.
159
160 Updated /etc/inittab, /etc/init.d/xdm and /etc/X11/startDM.sh
161 to fix a problem where startDM.sh would be respawned repeatedly
162 if xdm was not in the default runlevel.
163
164* rc-scripts 1.2.8 (4 March 2002)
165
166 4 March 2002; Martin Schlemmer <azarah@gentoo.org>: add /etc/init.d/xdm,
167 /etc/X11/startDM.sh and updated /etc/inittab to fix the "dead key"
168 problem we had with xdm/gdm/kdm. We should move them to the
169 xfree ebuild later on when things settles down.
170
171 Added some sanity checks to /sbin/rc, /etc/init.d/runscripts.sh.
172
173 Added a basic $PATH to /etc/init.d/functions.sh to fix a problem
174 where we had a invalid $PATH on boot in some cases.
175
176 Updated /etc/init.d/keymap and /etc/init.d/consolefont to work with
177 the new sys-apps/kbd package.
178
179* rc-scripts 1.2.7 (3 March 2002)
180
181 3 March 2002; Martin Schlemmer <azarah@gentoo.org>: fixed the problem
182 of rc-scripts trying to start/stop a service multiple times if it
183 fails to do so. Updated /etc/init.d/runscript.sh and /sbin/rc for
184 this.
185
186 Fixing some variable declarations in /etc/init.d/runscript.sh caused
187 /etc/init.d/net.lo to fail on stop ($IFACE was set invalid). Fixed
188 this.
189
190 Added caching of the "depend() { need foo; } " lines, and updated
191 /etc/init.d/depscan.sh to touch the actual files less. This should
192 speedup dependancy caching a lot, especially on slow machines.
193
194 Updated /etc/passwd to have users with no shell defined, use /bin/false
195 for security.
196
197 Update /etc/fstab to mention /dev/shm since we dont mount it anymore.
198
199 1 March 2002; Martin Schlemmer <azarah@gentoo.org>: added a wrapper for
200 sourcing the rc-scripts to eliminate syntax errors. Thanks to
201 Karl Trygve Kalleberg (aka karltk) for the idea. Updated
202 /etc/init.d/depscan.sh, /etc/init.d/functions.sh and
203 /etc/init.d/runscript.sh for this (added wrap_rcscript() function).
204
205 Removed stopping of dependant services that have current service as
206 a 'use'dependancy ... should be less confusing now.
207 Updated /etc/init.d/runscript.sh for this.
208
209 28 Feb 2002; Martin Schlemmer <azarah@gentoo.org>: add /etc/conf.d/local.start
210 and /etc/conf.d/local.stop for adding any misc programs to startup. This
211 should pretty much have /etc/init.d/ static, except for baselayout updates,
212 etc.
213
214 27 Feb 2002; Martin Schlemmer <azarah@gentoo.org>: in some wierd cases,
215 a redundent /dev/.devfsd on a unmounted /dev can cause problems. Fixed
216 this in /sbin/rc.
217
218 Added the patches from Grant Goodyear (aka g2boojum) to enable us to
219 use a ramdisk to store the contents of ${svcdir}. Updated /sbin/rc,
220 /etc/init.d/functions.sh and /etc/init.d/checkroot for this.
221
222 26 Feb 2002; Martin Schlemmer <azarah@gentoo.org>: fix my brain dead
223 update of the 25th. It really should keep "gentoo=nodevfs" in mind.
224 Also added 'get_bootparam()' to help in retrieving kernel options.
225 Updated /etc/init.d/functions.sh, /etc/init.d/checkroot and /sbin/rc
226 for this.
227
228 Updated /etc/init.d/consolefont to work without devfs as well.
229
230 When rebooting or shutting down, a service should not fail to stop
231 if a service it depends on, fails. Updated /etc/init.d/runscript.sh
232 for this.
233
234 25 Feb 2002; Martin Schlemmer <azarah@gentoo.org>: added a check if
235 /dev is mounted when creating entries for /etc/mtab. This should solve a
236 invalid entry or /dev being mounted even with 'gentoo=nodevfs' option.
237 Updated /etc/init.d/checkroot for this.
238
239 17 Feb 2002: Daniel Robbins <drobbins@gentoo.org>: Made "xfs" the default
240 filesystem in /etc/fstab (from ReiserFS) and removed "notail" option (it's
241 just in a comment now)
242
243 17 Feb 2002: Martin Schlemmer (azarah@gentoo.org): more fixes to 'after' and
244 'before', updated /etc/init.d/runscript.sh for this. This should fix
245 services not getting started in the correct order in a tight loop, services
246 getting stopped out of order, and some other sanity checks. Updated
247 rc-script.sh for updated help.
248
6 15 Feb 2002: Martin Schlemmer (azarah@gentoo.org): update 249 15 Feb 2002: Martin Schlemmer (azarah@gentoo.org): update /etc/profile to
7 /etc/profile to resolve bug #588.
