6 15 Feb 2002: Martin Schlemmer (azarah@gentoo.org): update
7 /etc/profile to resolve bug #588.
8
9 Reimplemented things a bit, and added the 'after' type. 'before'
10 and 'after' will only work currently for a change of runlevel.
11 Updated /etc/init.d/depscan.sh, /etc/init.d/runscript.sh and
12 /sbin/rc for it.
13
14 13 Feb 2002: Martin Schlemmer (azarah@gentoo.org): add some more
15 entries to /etc/devfsd.conf to make alsa users life easier ...
16 thanks Tod.
17
18 12 Feb 2002: Martin Schlemmer (azarah@gentoo.org): Some more
19 cleanups to /etc/init.d/depscan.sh and /etc/init.d/runscript.sh.
20
21 Fixed some services not starting again when restarting a service.
22 Seems simple is still the best way.
23
24 Fixed some other problems created with feature additions and cleanups.
25
26 11 Feb 2002: Martin Schlemmer (azarah@gentoo.org): General cleanups
27 to /etc/init.d/depscan.sh and /etc/init.d/runscript.sh.
28
29 Added 'before *' to /etc/init.d/checkroot to make sure it gets
30 started first.
31
32 Added 'use *' to /etc/init.d/local to make sure it gets started
33 last.
34
35 10 Feb 2002: Martin Schlemmer (azarah@gentoo.org): Fixed /sbin/rc
36 to stop a service on change of runlevel if it is in 'use' by
37 another service.
38
39 Added the 'provide' depend type for creating virtual services.
40 Updated /etc/init.d/depscan.sh for this.
41
42 Added the 'before' depend type. This is more for changing the
43 order services start in. Updated /etc/init.d/depscan.sh and
44 /etc/init.d/functions.sh for this.
45
46 Updated /etc/init.d/depscan.sh to work with '*' as argument for
47 dependancy types. This can be used with 'use' and 'before' to
48 start a script last or first respectively.
49
50 Added save_options() and get_options() to /etc/init.d/functions.sh
51 for saving misc settings between startup/shutdown. Updated
52 /etc/init.d/net.eth0 to use these and properly down virtual
53 interfaces.
54
55 6 Feb 2002: Martin Schlemmer (azarah@gentoo.org): updated both
56 /etc/init.d/bootmisc and /etc/init.d/keymaps to be quiet on no
57 errors.
58
59* rc-scripts 1.2.6 (6 Feb 2002)
60
61 2 Feb 2002: Martin Schlemmer (azarah@gentoo.org): updated /etc/net.eth0
62 to specify the gateway device via the $gateway variable (something like
63 gateway="eth0/192.168.0.1").
64
65 2 Feb 2002: Martin Schlemmer (azarah@gentoo.org): added rc-script
66 /etc/init.d/numlock, for enabling numlock at boot.
67
68 29 Jan 2002: Martin Schlemmer (azarah@gentoo.org): hopefully the
69 last fix to /etc/init.d/netmount to umount cleanly. This fix
70 implements a retry if not successful the first time, and will
71 kill processess using the mount. Also small type-o fix to
72 /etc/init.d/halt.sh.
73
74 27 Jan 2002: Donny Davies (woodchip@gentoo.org): security fix to
75 /etc/pam.d/sshd,login,chsh: added pam_shells.so to the stack.
76 Fixed /etc/passwd,group for user/group mysql.
77
78 27 Jan 2002: Martin Schlemmer (azarah@gentoo.org): added charset
79 map file support to /etc/init.d/consolefont and the setting to
80 /etc/rc.conf.
81
82 25 Jan 2002: Martin Schlemmer (azarah@gentoo.org): fixed dircolors
83 in skel files to support both versions of dircolors.
84
85 23 Jan 2002: Martin Schlemmer (azarah@gentoo.org): fixed bug
86 in the restart stuff of /etc/init.d/runscript.sh that caused
87 a restart of a 'net' service not to restart services again
88 that depended on it.
89
90* rc-scripts 1.2.5 (20 Jan 2002)
91
92 20 Jan 2002: Martin Schlemmer (azarah@gentoo.org): updated
93 /etc/init.d/net.eth0 to 'use' pcmcia.
94
95 8 Jan 2002: Martin Schlemmer (azarah@gentoo.org): added '--sh' to
96 the dircolors command in /etc/skel/.bash_profile to handle cases
97 where bash do not export $SHELL.
98
99 6 Jan 2002: Martin Schlemmer (azarah@gentoo.org): updated
100 /etc/init.d/runscripts.sh, /etc/init.d/net.eth0, /etc/conf.d/net and
101 removed /etc/init.d/net.eth0-dhcp to reflect a new 'bsd-ish' config
102 scheme for the net.eth* scripts.
103
104 6 Jan 2002: Donny Davies (woodchip@gentoo.org): Removed email address
105 from manpages; no need for that..
106
107 5 Jan 2002: Martin Schlemmer (azarah@gentoo.org): fix type-o in
108 /etc/devfsd.conf; had 'dvd' in the cdrw stuff.
109
110* rc-scripts 1.2.4 (30 Dec 2001)
111
112 30 Dec 2001: Daniel Robbins (drobbins@gentoo.org): Changed default umask
113 back to 022 as it should be.
114
115 30 Dec 2001; Martin Schlemmer (azarah@gentoo.org): Updated
116 /etc/init.d/checkfs to return 0 if the fs was successfully repaired.
117
118 29 Dec 2001; Donny Davies (woodchip@gentoo.org):
119 sort -t: -k3,3 -n /etc/passwd,group. Ahhhh :))
120
121 28 Dec 2001; Martin Schlemmer (azarah@gentoo.org); Updated
122 /etc/init.d/depscan.sh to store info about missing dependancies of
123 type 'need' in ${svcdir}/broken. Also updated /etc/init.d/runscript.sh
124 to use this when starting a script ('need' dependancies is critical for
125 startup). Added the broken() function to /etc/init.d/runscript.sh
126 to list the missing dependancies.
127
128 Updated /etc/init.d/runscript.sh for svc_start() to have better error
129 checking.
130
131 Updated /etc/init.d/functions.sh with ewend(), which is the same as
132 eend(), but print a warning on error, not a error. Updated
133 /etc/init.d/checkroot and /etc/init.d/checkfs to use this function.
134
135 27 Dec 2001; Martin Schlemmer (azarah@gentoo.org); Update /sbin/runscript.c
136 to run /etc/init.d/rc-help.sh if no arguments is passed to a rc-script.
137
138 Added /etc/init.d/rc-help.sh, simple script that prints out help for
139 the rc-scripts.
140
141 25 Dec 2001; Martin Schlemmer (azarah@gentoo.org); Update
142 /etc/init.d/shutdown.sh and /etc/init.d/reboot.sh not to force the
143 halt and reboot. This fixes a problem where / was not unmounted
144 properly in some cases.
145
146 24 Dec 2001; Martin Schlemmer (azarah@gentoo.org): Move $svcdir to
147 to /etc/init.d/functions.sh, and update /etc/init.d/runscript.sh and
148 /etc/init.d/depscan.sh for this
149
150 Modified /etc/init.d/runscript.sh to also restart the services that
151 depend on a service if that service is restarted. Enhanced the
152 restart function to be able to have custom restart() functions in
153 rc-scripts. The custom restart() have to use svc_stop() and
154 svc_start() to restart the service.
155
156 Add a pause function to /etc/init.d/runscript.sh. It will basically
157 stop a service without stopping the services that depends on that
158 service.
159
160 Add a pause function to /etc/init.d/runscript.sh. It will basically stop a
161 service without stopping the services that depends on that service.
162
163* rc-scripts 1.2.3 (18 Dec 2001)
164
165 16 Dec 2001; Martin Schlemmer (azarah@gentoo.org): Moved the stuff from
166 /sbin/init (old) to /sbin/rc (basically drop the init wrapper we used).
167
168 Some cleanups: take out the shm resize comment;
169
170 remove the $wrongmount;
171
172 remove the mountshm() function and insert it directly
173 where needed;
174
175 remove the setting of $PATH as /sbin/init already do
176 this for us.
177
178 Added the if statement to detect if it is the first time the 'boot'
179 runlevel is executed (if [ "$RUNLEVEL" = "S" ] && [ "$argv1" = "boot" ]).
180 $RUNLEVEL is a env var set by /sbin/init.
181
182 Also added functionality to detect if the kernel have DEVFS support
183 compiled in; seems new users thinks devfs is unstable and as they do
184 not always read the docs, it does not get compiled in ;/ Should
185 make live for us a bit easier.
186
187 14 Dec 2001; Martin Schlemmer (azarah@gentoo.org): Fixed /sbin/rc to kill
188 a cosmetic bug in the part that stops all the unneeded services.

33 /etc/init.d/depscan.sh for a virtual 'use' depend, called 'logger' 216 /etc/init.d/depscan.sh for a virtual 'use' depend, called 'logger'
34 that can be used for services that needs to have a logger started 217 that can be used for services that needs to have a logger started
35 before they are started. Updated /etc/conf.d/basic with $SYSLOGGER 218 before they are started. Updated /etc/conf.d/basic with $SYSLOGGER
36 that is used to define what loggers the 'logger' depend represent. 219 that is used to define what loggers the 'logger' depend represent.

44 /etc/profile for the user to 077 for security. 225 /etc/profile for the user to 077 for security.
45 226
46 Added a localhost line to /etc/hosts after yet another post to gentoo-user.
47 I cant see any problem with this, and since nobody else wants to take the
48 plunge ....
49
50 Added a stop() function to /etc/init.d/clock. Also removed uneeded 227 Added a stop() function to /etc/init.d/clock. Also removed uneeded
51 'source /etc/rc.conf' line. 228 'source /etc/rc.conf' line.
52 229
53 Updated /etc/init.d/hostname to set the hostname to 'localhost' if 230 Updated /etc/init.d/hostname to set the hostname to 'localhost' if

58 Updated /sbin/init to move the entries in /lib/dev-state to /dev before 233 Updated /sbin/init to move the entries in /lib/dev-state to /dev before

60 old /dev-state/compat stuff. 235 old /dev-state/compat stuff.
61 236
62 Removed a stupid bug out of /sbin/init ... /lib/dev-state/* was moved
63 to /dev *before* /dev was mounted.
64
65 Seems the .keep files in /lib/dev-state/pts and /lib/dev-state/shm
66 caused /sbin/init to lock while moving /lib/dev-state/* to /dev. Added
67 the needed fixes to the baselayout ebuild.
68
69 On second thoughts, removed the 'try' out of the code that moves
70 /lib/dev-state/* to /dev, since this is not a critical task, and
71 booting will still continue on failure.
72
73 25 Nov 2001; ncsd, the name service cache daemon script, has been removed 237 25 Nov 2001; ncsd, the name service cache daemon script, has been removed

85
86 Added /etc/conf.d and moved rc.conf there as /etc/conf.d/basic. Created

88 say that the user should look in /etc/conf.d/* for stuff to configure.
89
90 Added /etc/init.d/hdparm and /etc/conf.d/hdparm; a script and config
91 file for setting generic optimizations for the disk drives.
