5 24 March 2002; Martin Schlemmer <azarah@gentoo.org>:
6
7 Resolve bug #1274. Updated /etc/init.d/hostname and /etc/init.d/bootmisc
8 for this.
9
10 With the "before" and "after" stuff, recursion levels was getting too high,
11 and with some cases, things just plain did not work as it should. Reworked
12 things to to lower the levels of recursion and get the order right. Updated
13 /etc/init.d/runscript.sh for this.
14
15 Fixed a problem in /sbin/rc and /etc/init.d/runscript.sh where
16 ${svcdir}/softlevel did not always exist, but runscript.sh tried to open it.
17
18 Enhance --quiet support. Updated /etc/init.d/functions.sh for this.
19
20 Remove /etc/pwdb.conf, as pwdb already install a copy of this.
21
22 Remove /etc/pam.d/{rexec,rlogin,rsh} as pam already install this.
23
24* rc-scripts 1.3.1 (23 Mar 2002)
25
26 23 March 2002; Daniel Robbins <drobbins@gentoo.org>: init.d/net.eth0: fix for
27 DHCP lease release from Jim Nutt.
28
29 23 March 2002; Daniel Robbins <drobbins@gentoo.org>: rolling a new release
30 since there are a lot of important bug fixes in here that are needed.
31
32 23 March 2002; Martin Schlemmer <azarah@gentoo.org>:
33
34 Resolve bug #1292.
35
36 Remove the extra 'depmod -a' in /etc/init.d/modules, thanks to
37 Spidler.
38
39 21 March 2002; Martin Schlemmer <azarah@gentoo.org>:
40
41 Update /sbin/rc to fix a 'cat mounts' instead of the correct
42 version, 'cat /proc/mounts'.
43
44 19 March 2002; Martin Schlemmer <azarah@gentoo.org>:
45
46 Add initial support for the --quiet flag that suppress output.
47
48 18 March 2002; Martin Schlemmer <azarah@gentoo.org>:
49
50 Remove the 'try' from 'try /etc/init.d/depscan.sh' in /sbin/rc
51 as not all errors by depscan.sh is critical. It should be
52 reworked to do better error handeling.
53
54 14 March 2002; Martin Schlemmer <azarah@gentoo.org>:
55
56 Fix the GID and UID of nobody and nogroup in /etc/passwd and
57 /etc/group to match those of Debian, FBSD and others. Thanks
58 to those who reported it, and Woodchip for looking up the
59 proper values.
60
61 Update /etc/init.d/net.eth0 to properly down DHCP interfaces.
62 This resolves bug #1150, thanks to Paul Fleischer.
63
64 11 March 2002; Martin Schlemmer <azarah@gentoo.org>:
65
66 Updated /etc/init.d/functions.sh not to use /usr/bin/basename,
67 as some users have /usr on seperate partition which is not
68 mounted when depscan.sh is run the first time.
69
70 Updated the checking for more than one service providing the
71 same virtual function in /etc/init.d/depscan.sh. It should
72 be working now, and this also fix a problem that when there is no
73 service providing a virtual, counter was used uninitialized.
74
75* rc-scripts 1.3.0 (10 March 2002)
76
77 10 March 2002; Martin Schlemmer <azarah@gentoo.org>: Resolved
78 bug #1021; updated /etc/init.d/consolefont for this.
79
80 Resolved bug #1029; updated /etc/init.d/net.eth0 for this.
81
82 Resolved bug #990; updated /etc/init.d/net.eth0, /etc/init.d/netmount
83 and /etc/init.d/localmount for this.
84
85 Lots of form/syntax cleanups, most things should be more
86 consistant now. Fixed fail detection/return values of lots of
87 scripts.
88
89 Lots of cleanup/fixes in the three main scripts behind our
90 rc-system, /sbin/rc, /etc/init.d/depscan.sh, /etc/init.d/runscript.sh
91
92 Fix a bug regarding a invalid $PATH for portage if /etc/init.d/functions.sh
93 is sourced in a ebuild.
94
95 Fix a bug that our rc-script wrapper introduced: Global variables
96 in scripts no longer worked. Updated /etc/init.d/runscript.sh for
97 this.
98
99 Implemented more error checking for the main startup code in /sbin/rc.
100 Also fixed try() for mounting /proc (maybe all mount commands).
101 The function worked fine in a simulated test, but in real life failed
102 to detect a error when mounting /proc (remember to thank Grant for
103 his UserMode ebuilds, and Guide).
104
105* rc-scripts 1.2.9 (6 March 2002)
106
107 6 March 2002; Martin Schlemmer <azarah@gentoo.org>: General form
108 updates and some piping fixes.
109
110 Updated /etc/inittab, /etc/init.d/xdm and /etc/X11/startDM.sh
111 to fix a problem where startDM.sh would be respawned repeatedly
112 if xdm was not in the default runlevel.
113
114* rc-scripts 1.2.8 (4 March 2002)
115
116 4 March 2002; Martin Schlemmer <azarah@gentoo.org>: add /etc/init.d/xdm,
117 /etc/X11/startDM.sh and updated /etc/inittab to fix the "dead key"
118 problem we had with xdm/gdm/kdm. We should move them to the
119 xfree ebuild later on when things settles down.
120
121 Added some sanity checks to /sbin/rc, /etc/init.d/runscripts.sh.
122
123 Added a basic $PATH to /etc/init.d/functions.sh to fix a problem
124 where we had a invalid $PATH on boot in some cases.
125
126 Updated /etc/init.d/keymap and /etc/init.d/consolefont to work with
127 the new sys-apps/kbd package.
128
129* rc-scripts 1.2.7 (3 March 2002)
130
131 3 March 2002; Martin Schlemmer <azarah@gentoo.org>: fixed the problem
132 of rc-scripts trying to start/stop a service multiple times if it
133 fails to do so. Updated /etc/init.d/runscript.sh and /sbin/rc for
134 this.
135
136 Fixing some variable declarations in /etc/init.d/runscript.sh caused
137 /etc/init.d/net.lo to fail on stop ($IFACE was set invalid). Fixed
138 this.
139
140 Added caching of the "depend() { need foo; } " lines, and updated
141 /etc/init.d/depscan.sh to touch the actual files less. This should
142 speedup dependancy caching a lot, especially on slow machines.
143
144 Updated /etc/passwd to have users with no shell defined, use /bin/false
145 for security.
146
147 Update /etc/fstab to mention /dev/shm since we dont mount it anymore.
148
149 1 March 2002; Martin Schlemmer <azarah@gentoo.org>: added a wrapper for
150 sourcing the rc-scripts to eliminate syntax errors. Thanks to
151 Karl Trygve Kalleberg (aka karltk) for the idea. Updated
152 /etc/init.d/depscan.sh, /etc/init.d/functions.sh and
153 /etc/init.d/runscript.sh for this (added wrap_rcscript() function).
154
155 Removed stopping of dependant services that have current service as
156 a 'use'dependancy ... should be less confusing now.
157 Updated /etc/init.d/runscript.sh for this.
158
159 28 Feb 2002; Martin Schlemmer <azarah@gentoo.org>: add /etc/conf.d/local.start
160 and /etc/conf.d/local.stop for adding any misc programs to startup. This
161 should pretty much have /etc/init.d/ static, except for baselayout updates,
162 etc.
163
164 27 Feb 2002; Martin Schlemmer <azarah@gentoo.org>: in some wierd cases,
165 a redundent /dev/.devfsd on a unmounted /dev can cause problems. Fixed
166 this in /sbin/rc.
167
168 Added the patches from Grant Goodyear (aka g2boojum) to enable us to
169 use a ramdisk to store the contents of ${svcdir}. Updated /sbin/rc,
170 /etc/init.d/functions.sh and /etc/init.d/checkroot for this.
171
172 26 Feb 2002; Martin Schlemmer <azarah@gentoo.org>: fix my brain dead
173 update of the 25th. It really should keep "gentoo=nodevfs" in mind.
174 Also added 'get_bootparam()' to help in retrieving kernel options.
175 Updated /etc/init.d/functions.sh, /etc/init.d/checkroot and /sbin/rc
176 for this.
177
178 Updated /etc/init.d/consolefont to work without devfs as well.
179
180 When rebooting or shutting down, a service should not fail to stop
181 if a service it depends on, fails. Updated /etc/init.d/runscript.sh
182 for this.
183
184 25 Feb 2002; Martin Schlemmer <azarah@gentoo.org>: added a check if
185 /dev is mounted when creating entries for /etc/mtab. This should solve a
186 invalid entry or /dev being mounted even with 'gentoo=nodevfs' option.
187 Updated /etc/init.d/checkroot for this.
188
189 17 Feb 2002: Daniel Robbins <drobbins@gentoo.org>: Made "xfs" the default
190 filesystem in /etc/fstab (from ReiserFS) and removed "notail" option (it's
191 just in a comment now)
192
193 17 Feb 2002: Martin Schlemmer (azarah@gentoo.org): more fixes to 'after' and
194 'before', updated /etc/init.d/runscript.sh for this. This should fix
195 services not getting started in the correct order in a tight loop, services
196 getting stopped out of order, and some other sanity checks. Updated
197 rc-script.sh for updated help.
198
199 15 Feb 2002: Martin Schlemmer (azarah@gentoo.org): update /etc/profile to
200 resolve bug #588. Reimplemented things a bit, and added the 'after' type.
201 'before' and 'after' will only work currently for a change of runlevel.
202 Updated /etc/init.d/depscan.sh, /etc/init.d/runscript.sh and /sbin/rc for it.
203
204 13 Feb 2002: Martin Schlemmer (azarah@gentoo.org): add some more entries to
205 /etc/devfsd.conf to make alsa users life easier ... thanks Tod.
206
207 12 Feb 2002: Martin Schlemmer (azarah@gentoo.org): Some more cleanups to
208 /etc/init.d/depscan.sh and /etc/init.d/runscript.sh.
209
210 Fixed some services not starting again when restarting a service.
211 Seems simple is still the best way.
212
213 Fixed some other problems created with feature additions and cleanups.
214
215 11 Feb 2002: Martin Schlemmer (azarah@gentoo.org): General cleanups to
216 /etc/init.d/depscan.sh and /etc/init.d/runscript.sh.
217
218 Added 'before *' to /etc/init.d/checkroot to make sure it gets
219 started first.
220
221 Added 'use *' to /etc/init.d/local to make sure it gets started
222 last.
223
224 10 Feb 2002: Martin Schlemmer (azarah@gentoo.org): Fixed /sbin/rc
225 to stop a service on change of runlevel if it is in 'use' by
226 another service.
227
228 Added the 'provide' depend type for creating virtual services.
229 Updated /etc/init.d/depscan.sh for this.
230
231 Added the 'before' depend type. This is more for changing the
232 order services start in. Updated /etc/init.d/depscan.sh and
233 /etc/init.d/functions.sh for this.
234
235 Updated /etc/init.d/depscan.sh to work with '*' as argument for
236 dependancy types. This can be used with 'use' and 'before' to
237 start a script last or first respectively.
238
239 Added save_options() and get_options() to /etc/init.d/functions.sh
240 for saving misc settings between startup/shutdown. Updated
241 /etc/init.d/net.eth0 to use these and properly down virtual
242 interfaces.
243
244 6 Feb 2002: Martin Schlemmer (azarah@gentoo.org): updated both
245 /etc/init.d/bootmisc and /etc/init.d/keymaps to be quiet on no
246 errors.
247
248* rc-scripts 1.2.6 (6 Feb 2002)
249
250 2 Feb 2002: Martin Schlemmer (azarah@gentoo.org): updated /etc/net.eth0
251 to specify the gateway device via the $gateway variable (something like
252 gateway="eth0/192.168.0.1").
4 253
5 2 Feb 2002: Martin Schlemmer (azarah@gentoo.org): added rc-script 254 2 Feb 2002: Martin Schlemmer (azarah@gentoo.org): added rc-script
