5* rc-scripts 1.3.1 (23 Mar 2002)
6
7 23 March 2002; Daniel Robbins <drobbins@gentoo.org>: rolling a new
8 release since there are a lot of important bug fixes in here that
9 are needed.
10
11 23 March 2002; Martin Schlemmer <azarah@gentoo.org>:
12
13 Resolve bug #1292.
14
15 Remove the extra 'depmod -a' in /etc/init.d/modules, thanks to
16 Spidler.
17
18 21 March 2002; Martin Schlemmer <azarah@gentoo.org>:
19
20 Update /sbin/rc to fix a 'cat mounts' instead of the correct
21 version, 'cat /proc/mounts'.
22
23 19 March 2002; Martin Schlemmer <azarah@gentoo.org>:
24
25 Add initial support for the --quiet flag that suppress output.
26
27 18 March 2002; Martin Schlemmer <azarah@gentoo.org>:
28
29 Remove the 'try' from 'try /etc/init.d/depscan.sh' in /sbin/rc
30 as not all errors by depscan.sh is critical. It should be
31 reworked to do better error handeling.
32
33 14 March 2002; Martin Schlemmer <azarah@gentoo.org>:
34
35 Fix the GID and UID of nobody and nogroup in /etc/passwd and
36 /etc/group to match those of Debian, FBSD and others. Thanks
37 to those who reported it, and Woodchip for looking up the
38 proper values.
39
40 Update /etc/init.d/net.eth0 to properly down DHCP interfaces.
41 This resolves bug #1150, thanks to Paul Fleischer.
42
43 11 March 2002; Martin Schlemmer <azarah@gentoo.org>:
44
45 Updated /etc/init.d/functions.sh not to use /usr/bin/basename,
46 as some users have /usr on seperate partition which is not
47 mounted when depscan.sh is run the first time.
48
49 Updated the checking for more than one service providing the
50 same virtual function in /etc/init.d/depscan.sh. It should
51 be working now, and this also fix a problem that when there is no
52 service providing a virtual, counter was used uninitialized.
53
54* rc-scripts 1.3.0 (10 March 2002)
55
56 10 March 2002; Martin Schlemmer <azarah@gentoo.org>: Resolved
57 bug #1021; updated /etc/init.d/consolefont for this.
58
59 Resolved bug #1029; updated /etc/init.d/net.eth0 for this.
60
61 Resolved bug #990; updated /etc/init.d/net.eth0, /etc/init.d/netmount
62 and /etc/init.d/localmount for this.
63
64 Lots of form/syntax cleanups, most things should be more
65 consistant now. Fixed fail detection/return values of lots of
66 scripts.
67
68 Lots of cleanup/fixes in the three main scripts behind our
69 rc-system, /sbin/rc, /etc/init.d/depscan.sh, /etc/init.d/runscript.sh
70
71 Fix a bug regarding a invalid $PATH for portage if /etc/init.d/functions.sh
72 is sourced in a ebuild.
73
74 Fix a bug that our rc-script wrapper introduced: Global variables
75 in scripts no longer worked. Updated /etc/init.d/runscript.sh for
76 this.
77
78 Implemented more error checking for the main startup code in /sbin/rc.
79 Also fixed try() for mounting /proc (maybe all mount commands).
80 The function worked fine in a simulated test, but in real life failed
81 to detect a error when mounting /proc (remember to thank Grant for
82 his UserMode ebuilds, and Guide).
83
84* rc-scripts 1.2.9 (6 March 2002)
85
86 6 March 2002; Martin Schlemmer <azarah@gentoo.org>: General form
87 updates and some piping fixes.
88
89 Updated /etc/inittab, /etc/init.d/xdm and /etc/X11/startDM.sh
90 to fix a problem where startDM.sh would be respawned repeatedly
91 if xdm was not in the default runlevel.
92
93* rc-scripts 1.2.8 (4 March 2002)
94
95 4 March 2002; Martin Schlemmer <azarah@gentoo.org>: add /etc/init.d/xdm,
96 /etc/X11/startDM.sh and updated /etc/inittab to fix the "dead key"
97 problem we had with xdm/gdm/kdm. We should move them to the
98 xfree ebuild later on when things settles down.
99
100 Added some sanity checks to /sbin/rc, /etc/init.d/runscripts.sh.
101
102 Added a basic $PATH to /etc/init.d/functions.sh to fix a problem
103 where we had a invalid $PATH on boot in some cases.
104
105 Updated /etc/init.d/keymap and /etc/init.d/consolefont to work with
106 the new sys-apps/kbd package.
107
108* rc-scripts 1.2.7 (3 March 2002)
109
110 3 March 2002; Martin Schlemmer <azarah@gentoo.org>: fixed the problem
111 of rc-scripts trying to start/stop a service multiple times if it
112 fails to do so. Updated /etc/init.d/runscript.sh and /sbin/rc for
113 this.
114
115 Fixing some variable declarations in /etc/init.d/runscript.sh caused
116 /etc/init.d/net.lo to fail on stop ($IFACE was set invalid). Fixed
117 this.
118
119 Added caching of the "depend() { need foo; } " lines, and updated
120 /etc/init.d/depscan.sh to touch the actual files less. This should
121 speedup dependancy caching a lot, especially on slow machines.
122
123 Updated /etc/passwd to have users with no shell defined, use /bin/false
124 for security.
125
126 Update /etc/fstab to mention /dev/shm since we dont mount it anymore.
127
128 1 March 2002; Martin Schlemmer <azarah@gentoo.org>: added a wrapper for
129 sourcing the rc-scripts to eliminate syntax errors. Thanks to
130 Karl Trygve Kalleberg (aka karltk) for the idea. Updated
131 /etc/init.d/depscan.sh, /etc/init.d/functions.sh and
132 /etc/init.d/runscript.sh for this (added wrap_rcscript() function).
133
134 Removed stopping of dependant services that have current service as
135 a 'use'dependancy ... should be less confusing now.
136 Updated /etc/init.d/runscript.sh for this.
137
138 28 Feb 2002; Martin Schlemmer <azarah@gentoo.org>: add /etc/conf.d/local.start
139 and /etc/conf.d/local.stop for adding any misc programs to startup. This
140 should pretty much have /etc/init.d/ static, except for baselayout updates,
141 etc.
142
143 27 Feb 2002; Martin Schlemmer <azarah@gentoo.org>: in some wierd cases,
144 a redundent /dev/.devfsd on a unmounted /dev can cause problems. Fixed
145 this in /sbin/rc.
146
147 Added the patches from Grant Goodyear (aka g2boojum) to enable us to
148 use a ramdisk to store the contents of ${svcdir}. Updated /sbin/rc,
149 /etc/init.d/functions.sh and /etc/init.d/checkroot for this.
150
151 26 Feb 2002; Martin Schlemmer <azarah@gentoo.org>: fix my brain dead
152 update of the 25th. It really should keep "gentoo=nodevfs" in mind.
153 Also added 'get_bootparam()' to help in retrieving kernel options.
154 Updated /etc/init.d/functions.sh, /etc/init.d/checkroot and /sbin/rc
155 for this.
156
157 Updated /etc/init.d/consolefont to work without devfs as well.
158
159 When rebooting or shutting down, a service should not fail to stop
160 if a service it depends on, fails. Updated /etc/init.d/runscript.sh
161 for this.
4 162
5 25 Feb 2002; Martin Schlemmer <azarah@gentoo.org>: added a check if 163 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 164 /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. 165 invalid entry or /dev being mounted even with 'gentoo=nodevfs' option.
8 Updated /etc/init.d/checkroot for this. 166 Updated /etc/init.d/checkroot for this.
