5 17 Feb 2002: Martin Schlemmer (azarah@gentoo.org): more fixes to
6 'after' and 'before', updated /etc/init.d/runscript.sh for this.
7 This should fix services not getting started in the correct order
8 in a tight loop, services getting stopped out of order, and some
9 other sanity checks.
10
11 Updated rc-script.sh for updated help.
12
13 15 Feb 2002: Martin Schlemmer (azarah@gentoo.org): update
14 /etc/profile to resolve bug #588.
15
16 Reimplemented things a bit, and added the 'after' type. 'before'
17 and 'after' will only work currently for a change of runlevel.
18 Updated /etc/init.d/depscan.sh, /etc/init.d/runscript.sh and
19 /sbin/rc for it.
20
21 13 Feb 2002: Martin Schlemmer (azarah@gentoo.org): add some more
22 entries to /etc/devfsd.conf to make alsa users life easier ...
23 thanks Tod.
24
25 12 Feb 2002: Martin Schlemmer (azarah@gentoo.org): Some more
26 cleanups to /etc/init.d/depscan.sh and /etc/init.d/runscript.sh.
27
28 Fixed some services not starting again when restarting a service.
29 Seems simple is still the best way.
30
31 Fixed some other problems created with feature additions and cleanups.
32
33 11 Feb 2002: Martin Schlemmer (azarah@gentoo.org): General cleanups
34 to /etc/init.d/depscan.sh and /etc/init.d/runscript.sh.
35
36 Added 'before *' to /etc/init.d/checkroot to make sure it gets
37 started first.
38
39 Added 'use *' to /etc/init.d/local to make sure it gets started
40 last.
41
42 10 Feb 2002: Martin Schlemmer (azarah@gentoo.org): Fixed /sbin/rc
43 to stop a service on change of runlevel if it is in 'use' by
44 another service.
45
46 Added the 'provide' depend type for creating virtual services.
47 Updated /etc/init.d/depscan.sh for this.
48
49 Added the 'before' depend type. This is more for changing the
50 order services start in. Updated /etc/init.d/depscan.sh and
51 /etc/init.d/functions.sh for this.
52
53 Updated /etc/init.d/depscan.sh to work with '*' as argument for
54 dependancy types. This can be used with 'use' and 'before' to
55 start a script last or first respectively.
56
57 Added save_options() and get_options() to /etc/init.d/functions.sh
58 for saving misc settings between startup/shutdown. Updated
59 /etc/init.d/net.eth0 to use these and properly down virtual
60 interfaces.
61
62 6 Feb 2002: Martin Schlemmer (azarah@gentoo.org): updated both
63 /etc/init.d/bootmisc and /etc/init.d/keymaps to be quiet on no
64 errors.
65
66* rc-scripts 1.2.6 (6 Feb 2002)
67
68 2 Feb 2002: Martin Schlemmer (azarah@gentoo.org): updated /etc/net.eth0
69 to specify the gateway device via the $gateway variable (something like
70 gateway="eth0/192.168.0.1").
71
72 2 Feb 2002: Martin Schlemmer (azarah@gentoo.org): added rc-script
73 /etc/init.d/numlock, for enabling numlock at boot.
74
75 29 Jan 2002: Martin Schlemmer (azarah@gentoo.org): hopefully the
76 last fix to /etc/init.d/netmount to umount cleanly. This fix
77 implements a retry if not successful the first time, and will
78 kill processess using the mount. Also small type-o fix to
79 /etc/init.d/halt.sh.
80
81 27 Jan 2002: Donny Davies (woodchip@gentoo.org): security fix to
82 /etc/pam.d/sshd,login,chsh: added pam_shells.so to the stack.
83 Fixed /etc/passwd,group for user/group mysql.
84
85 27 Jan 2002: Martin Schlemmer (azarah@gentoo.org): added charset
86 map file support to /etc/init.d/consolefont and the setting to
87 /etc/rc.conf.

90 in skel files to support both versions of dircolors.
91
92 23 Jan 2002: Martin Schlemmer (azarah@gentoo.org): fixed bug
93 in the restart stuff of /etc/init.d/runscript.sh that caused
94 a restart of a 'net' service not to restart services again
95 that depended on it.
96
97* rc-scripts 1.2.5 (20 Jan 2002)
98
99 20 Jan 2002: Martin Schlemmer (azarah@gentoo.org): updated
100 /etc/init.d/net.eth0 to 'use' pcmcia.
101
102 8 Jan 2002: Martin Schlemmer (azarah@gentoo.org): added '--sh' to
103 the dircolors command in /etc/skel/.bash_profile to handle cases
104 where bash do not export $SHELL.
105
106 6 Jan 2002: Martin Schlemmer (azarah@gentoo.org): updated
107 /etc/init.d/runscripts.sh, /etc/init.d/net.eth0, /etc/conf.d/net and
108 removed /etc/init.d/net.eth0-dhcp to reflect a new 'bsd-ish' config
109 scheme for the net.eth* scripts.
110
111 6 Jan 2002: Donny Davies (woodchip@gentoo.org): Removed email address
112 from manpages; no need for that..
113
114 5 Jan 2002: Martin Schlemmer (azarah@gentoo.org): fix type-o in
115 /etc/devfsd.conf; had 'dvd' in the cdrw stuff.
116
117* rc-scripts 1.2.4 (30 Dec 2001)
118
119 30 Dec 2001: Daniel Robbins (drobbins@gentoo.org): Changed default umask
120 back to 022 as it should be.
121
122 30 Dec 2001; Martin Schlemmer (azarah@gentoo.org): Updated
123 /etc/init.d/checkfs to return 0 if the fs was successfully repaired.
124
125 29 Dec 2001; Donny Davies (woodchip@gentoo.org):
126 sort -t: -k3,3 -n /etc/passwd,group. Ahhhh :))
127
128 28 Dec 2001; Martin Schlemmer (azarah@gentoo.org); Updated
129 /etc/init.d/depscan.sh to store info about missing dependancies of
130 type 'need' in ${svcdir}/broken. Also updated /etc/init.d/runscript.sh
131 to use this when starting a script ('need' dependancies is critical for
132 startup). Added the broken() function to /etc/init.d/runscript.sh
133 to list the missing dependancies.
134
135 Updated /etc/init.d/runscript.sh for svc_start() to have better error
136 checking.
137
138 Updated /etc/init.d/functions.sh with ewend(), which is the same as
139 eend(), but print a warning on error, not a error. Updated
140 /etc/init.d/checkroot and /etc/init.d/checkfs to use this function.
141
142 27 Dec 2001; Martin Schlemmer (azarah@gentoo.org); Update /sbin/runscript.c
143 to run /etc/init.d/rc-help.sh if no arguments is passed to a rc-script.
144
145 Added /etc/init.d/rc-help.sh, simple script that prints out help for
146 the rc-scripts.
147
148 25 Dec 2001; Martin Schlemmer (azarah@gentoo.org); Update
149 /etc/init.d/shutdown.sh and /etc/init.d/reboot.sh not to force the
150 halt and reboot. This fixes a problem where / was not unmounted
151 properly in some cases.
152
153 24 Dec 2001; Martin Schlemmer (azarah@gentoo.org): Move $svcdir to
154 to /etc/init.d/functions.sh, and update /etc/init.d/runscript.sh and
155 /etc/init.d/depscan.sh for this
156
157 Modified /etc/init.d/runscript.sh to also restart the services that
158 depend on a service if that service is restarted. Enhanced the
159 restart function to be able to have custom restart() functions in
160 rc-scripts. The custom restart() have to use svc_stop() and
161 svc_start() to restart the service.
162
163 Add a pause function to /etc/init.d/runscript.sh. It will basically
164 stop a service without stopping the services that depends on that
165 service.
166
167 Add a pause function to /etc/init.d/runscript.sh. It will basically stop a
168 service without stopping the services that depends on that service.
169
170* rc-scripts 1.2.3 (18 Dec 2001)
171
172 16 Dec 2001; Martin Schlemmer (azarah@gentoo.org): Moved the stuff from
173 /sbin/init (old) to /sbin/rc (basically drop the init wrapper we used).
174
175 Some cleanups: take out the shm resize comment;
176
177 remove the $wrongmount;
178
179 remove the mountshm() function and insert it directly
180 where needed;
181
182 remove the setting of $PATH as /sbin/init already do
183 this for us.
184
185 Added the if statement to detect if it is the first time the 'boot'
186 runlevel is executed (if [ "$RUNLEVEL" = "S" ] && [ "$argv1" = "boot" ]).
187 $RUNLEVEL is a env var set by /sbin/init.
188
189 Also added functionality to detect if the kernel have DEVFS support
190 compiled in; seems new users thinks devfs is unstable and as they do
191 not always read the docs, it does not get compiled in ;/ Should
192 make live for us a bit easier.
193
194 14 Dec 2001; Martin Schlemmer (azarah@gentoo.org): Fixed /sbin/rc to kill
195 a cosmetic bug in the part that stops all the unneeded services.

42 233
43 Added a localhost line to /etc/hosts after yet another post to gentoo-user.
44 I cant see any problem with this, and since nobody else wants to take the
45 plunge ....
46
47 Added a stop() function to /etc/init.d/clock. Also removed uneeded 234 Added a stop() function to /etc/init.d/clock. Also removed uneeded
48 'source /etc/rc.conf' line. 235 'source /etc/rc.conf' line.

55 Updated /sbin/init to move the entries in /lib/dev-state to /dev before 240 Updated /sbin/init to move the entries in /lib/dev-state to /dev before

57 old /dev-state/compat stuff. 242 old /dev-state/compat stuff.
58 243
59 Removed a stupid bug out of /sbin/init ... /lib/dev-state/* was moved
60 to /dev *before* /dev was mounted.
61
62 Seems the .keep files in /lib/dev-state/pts and /lib/dev-state/shm
63 caused /sbin/init to lock while moving /lib/dev-state/* to /dev. Added
64 the needed fixes to the baselayout ebuild.
65
66 On second thoughts, removed the 'try' out of the code that moves
67 /lib/dev-state/* to /dev, since this is not a critical task, and
68 booting will still continue on failure.
69
70 25 Nov 2001; ncsd, the name service cache daemon script, has been removed 244 25 Nov 2001; ncsd, the name service cache daemon script, has been removed

88 file for setting generic optimizations for the disk drives.
