5 21 March 2002; Martin Schlemmer <azarah@gentoo.org>:
7 Update /sbin/rc to fix a 'cat mounts' instead of the correct
8 version, 'cat /proc/mounts'.
10 19 March 2002; Martin Schlemmer <azarah@gentoo.org>:
12 Add initial support for the --quiet flag that suppress output.
14 18 March 2002; Martin Schlemmer <azarah@gentoo.org>:
16 Remove the 'try' from 'try /etc/init.d/depscan.sh' in /sbin/rc
17 as not all errors by depscan.sh is critical. It should be
18 reworked to do better error handeling.
20 14 March 2002; Martin Schlemmer <azarah@gentoo.org>:
22 Fix the GID and UID of nobody and nogroup in /etc/passwd and
23 /etc/group to match those of Debian, FBSD and others. Thanks
24 to those who reported it, and Woodchip for looking up the
25 proper values.
27 Update /etc/init.d/net.eth0 to properly down DHCP interfaces.
28 This resolves bug #1150, thanks to Paul Fleischer.
30 11 March 2002; Martin Schlemmer <azarah@gentoo.org>:
32 Updated /etc/init.d/functions.sh not to use /usr/bin/basename,
33 as some users have /usr on seperate partition which is not
34 mounted when depscan.sh is run the first time.
36 Updated the checking for more than one service providing the
37 same virtual function in /etc/init.d/depscan.sh. It should
38 be working now, and this also fix a problem that when there is no
39 service providing a virtual, counter was used uninitialized.
41* rc-scripts 1.3.0 (10 March 2002)
43 10 March 2002; Martin Schlemmer <azarah@gentoo.org>: Resolved
44 bug #1021; updated /etc/init.d/consolefont for this.
46 Resolved bug #1029; updated /etc/init.d/net.eth0 for this.
48 Resolved bug #990; updated /etc/init.d/net.eth0, /etc/init.d/netmount
49 and /etc/init.d/localmount for this.
51 Lots of form/syntax cleanups, most things should be more
52 consistant now. Fixed fail detection/return values of lots of
53 scripts.
55 Lots of cleanup/fixes in the three main scripts behind our
56 rc-system, /sbin/rc, /etc/init.d/depscan.sh, /etc/init.d/runscript.sh
58 Fix a bug regarding a invalid $PATH for portage if /etc/init.d/functions.sh
59 is sourced in a ebuild.
61 Fix a bug that our rc-script wrapper introduced: Global variables
62 in scripts no longer worked. Updated /etc/init.d/runscript.sh for
63 this.
65 Implemented more error checking for the main startup code in /sbin/rc.
66 Also fixed try() for mounting /proc (maybe all mount commands).
67 The function worked fine in a simulated test, but in real life failed
68 to detect a error when mounting /proc (remember to thank Grant for
69 his UserMode ebuilds, and Guide).
71* rc-scripts 1.2.9 (6 March 2002)
73 6 March 2002; Martin Schlemmer <azarah@gentoo.org>: General form
74 updates and some piping fixes.
76 Updated /etc/inittab, /etc/init.d/xdm and /etc/X11/startDM.sh
77 to fix a problem where startDM.sh would be respawned repeatedly
78 if xdm was not in the default runlevel.
80* rc-scripts 1.2.8 (4 March 2002)
82 4 March 2002; Martin Schlemmer <azarah@gentoo.org>: add /etc/init.d/xdm,
83 /etc/X11/startDM.sh and updated /etc/inittab to fix the "dead key"
84 problem we had with xdm/gdm/kdm. We should move them to the
85 xfree ebuild later on when things settles down.
87 Added some sanity checks to /sbin/rc, /etc/init.d/runscripts.sh.
89 Added a basic $PATH to /etc/init.d/functions.sh to fix a problem
90 where we had a invalid $PATH on boot in some cases.
92 Updated /etc/init.d/keymap and /etc/init.d/consolefont to work with
93 the new sys-apps/kbd package.
95* rc-scripts 1.2.7 (3 March 2002)
97 3 March 2002; Martin Schlemmer <azarah@gentoo.org>: fixed the problem
98 of rc-scripts trying to start/stop a service multiple times if it
99 fails to do so. Updated /etc/init.d/runscript.sh and /sbin/rc for
100 this.
102 Fixing some variable declarations in /etc/init.d/runscript.sh caused
103 /etc/init.d/net.lo to fail on stop ($IFACE was set invalid). Fixed
104 this.
106 Added caching of the "depend() { need foo; } " lines, and updated
107 /etc/init.d/depscan.sh to touch the actual files less. This should
108 speedup dependancy caching a lot, especially on slow machines.
110 Updated /etc/passwd to have users with no shell defined, use /bin/false
111 for security.
113 Update /etc/fstab to mention /dev/shm since we dont mount it anymore.
115 1 March 2002; Martin Schlemmer <azarah@gentoo.org>: added a wrapper for
116 sourcing the rc-scripts to eliminate syntax errors. Thanks to
117 Karl Trygve Kalleberg (aka karltk) for the idea. Updated
118 /etc/init.d/depscan.sh, /etc/init.d/functions.sh and
119 /etc/init.d/runscript.sh for this (added wrap_rcscript() function).
121 Removed stopping of dependant services that have current service as
122 a 'use'dependancy ... should be less confusing now.
123 Updated /etc/init.d/runscript.sh for this.
125 28 Feb 2002; Martin Schlemmer <azarah@gentoo.org>: add /etc/conf.d/local.start
126 and /etc/conf.d/local.stop for adding any misc programs to startup. This
127 should pretty much have /etc/init.d/ static, except for baselayout updates,
128 etc.
130 27 Feb 2002; Martin Schlemmer <azarah@gentoo.org>: in some wierd cases,
131 a redundent /dev/.devfsd on a unmounted /dev can cause problems. Fixed
132 this in /sbin/rc.
134 Added the patches from Grant Goodyear (aka g2boojum) to enable us to
135 use a ramdisk to store the contents of ${svcdir}. Updated /sbin/rc,
136 /etc/init.d/functions.sh and /etc/init.d/checkroot for this.
138 26 Feb 2002; Martin Schlemmer <azarah@gentoo.org>: fix my brain dead
139 update of the 25th. It really should keep "gentoo=nodevfs" in mind.
140 Also added 'get_bootparam()' to help in retrieving kernel options.
141 Updated /etc/init.d/functions.sh, /etc/init.d/checkroot and /sbin/rc
142 for this.
144 Updated /etc/init.d/consolefont to work without devfs as well.
146 When rebooting or shutting down, a service should not fail to stop
147 if a service it depends on, fails. Updated /etc/init.d/runscript.sh
148 for this.
4 149
5 25 Feb 2002; Martin Schlemmer <azarah@gentoo.org>: added a check if 150 25 Feb 2002; Martin Schlemmer <azarah@gentoo.org>: added a check if
6 /dev is mounted when creating entries for /etc/mtab. This should solve a 151 /dev is mounted when creating entries for /etc/mtab. This should solve a
7 invalid entry or /dev being mounted even with 'gentoo=nodevfs' option. 152 invalid entry or /dev being mounted even with 'gentoo=nodevfs' option.
8 Updated /etc/init.d/checkroot for this. 153 Updated /etc/init.d/checkroot for this.
