5* rc-scripts 1.2.7 (3 March 2002)
6
7 3 March 2002; Martin Schlemmer <azarah@gentoo.org>: fixed the problem
8 of rc-scripts trying to start/stop a service multiple times if it
9 fails to do so. Updated /etc/init.d/runscript.sh and /sbin/rc for
10 this.
11
12 Fixing some variable declarations in /etc/init.d/runscript.sh caused
13 /etc/init.d/net.lo to fail on stop ($IFACE was set invalid). Fixed
14 this.
15
16 Added caching of the "depend() { need foo; } " lines, and updated
17 /etc/init.d/depscan.sh to touch the actual files less. This should
18 speedup dependancy caching a lot, especially on slow machines.
19
20 Updated /etc/passwd to have users with no shell defined, use /bin/false
21 for security.
22
23 Update /etc/fstab to mention /dev/shm since we dont mount it anymore.
24
25 1 March 2002; Martin Schlemmer <azarah@gentoo.org>: added a wrapper for
26 sourcing the rc-scripts to eliminate syntax errors. Thanks to
27 Karl Trygve Kalleberg (aka karltk) for the idea. Updated
28 /etc/init.d/depscan.sh, /etc/init.d/functions.sh and
29 /etc/init.d/runscript.sh for this (added wrap_rcscript() function).
30
31 Removed stopping of dependant services that have current service as
32 a 'use'dependancy ... should be less confusing now.
33 Updated /etc/init.d/runscript.sh for this.
34
35 28 Feb 2002; Martin Schlemmer <azarah@gentoo.org>: add /etc/conf.d/local.start
36 and /etc/conf.d/local.stop for adding any misc programs to startup. This
37 should pretty much have /etc/init.d/ static, except for baselayout updates,
38 etc.
39
40 27 Feb 2002; Martin Schlemmer <azarah@gentoo.org>: in some wierd cases,
41 a redundent /dev/.devfsd on a unmounted /dev can cause problems. Fixed
42 this in /sbin/rc.
43
44 Added the patches from Grant Goodyear (aka g2boojum) to enable us to
45 use a ramdisk to store the contents of ${svcdir}. Updated /sbin/rc,
46 /etc/init.d/functions.sh and /etc/init.d/checkroot for this.
47
48 26 Feb 2002; Martin Schlemmer <azarah@gentoo.org>: fix my brain dead
49 update of the 25th. It really should keep "gentoo=nodevfs" in mind.
50 Also added 'get_bootparam()' to help in retrieving kernel options.
51 Updated /etc/init.d/functions.sh, /etc/init.d/checkroot and /sbin/rc
52 for this.
53
54 Updated /etc/init.d/consolefont to work without devfs as well.
55
56 When rebooting or shutting down, a service should not fail to stop
57 if a service it depends on, fails. Updated /etc/init.d/runscript.sh
58 for this.
59
60 25 Feb 2002; Martin Schlemmer <azarah@gentoo.org>: added a check if
61 /dev is mounted when creating entries for /etc/mtab. This should solve a
62 invalid entry or /dev being mounted even with 'gentoo=nodevfs' option.
63 Updated /etc/init.d/checkroot for this.
64
65 17 Feb 2002: Daniel Robbins <drobbins@gentoo.org>: Made "xfs" the default
66 filesystem in /etc/fstab (from ReiserFS) and removed "notail" option (it's
67 just in a comment now)
68
