5 24 April 2002; Donny Davies <woodchip@gentoo.org> rc.conf :
6
7 Remove NFSSERVER from rc.conf since it's now covered in /etc/conf.d/nfs
8 which is installed with the nfs-utils package. Also tidied up some
9 really old, leftover junk like the non-supported stuff from rc5.
10 Closes #1754.
11
12 23 April 2002; Martin Schlemmer <azarah@gentoo.org>:
13
14 Remove creation of /var/run/utmpx from bootmisc again. Seems
15 other people have wierd problems.
16
17* rc-scripts 1.3.4 (21 April 2002)
18
19 21 April 2002; Martin Schlemmer <azarah@gentoo.org>:
20
21 Add /sbin/rc-envupdate.sh to speedup updating of /etc/profile.env,
22 and /etc/csh.env. Update /etc/init.d/bootmisc to use this.
23
24 Implement the status commandline argument. Updated /sbin/runscript.sh
25 and /sbin/rc-help.sh for this.
26
27 Fix /sbin/depscan.sh to honour NEED and USE overriding BEFORE
28 and AFTER.
29
30 12 April 2002; Martin Schlemmer <azarah@gentoo.org>:
31
32 Update /etc/init.d/bootmisc to create /var/run/utmpx. This
33 is needed, else /usr/bin/newgrp segfault.
34
35 11 April 2002; Martin Schlemmer <azarah@gentoo.org>:
36
37 Update /etc/skel/.bash_profile to make it tcsh compadible.
38 Thanks to Väinö Järvelä for this fix.
39
40 Update /etc/profile to also set the PS? variables if $SHELL
41 is set to /bin/sh. This should make prompt colours in
42 bootstrap work again.
43
44 Move LVM stuff to checkfs to ensure that they get fscked.
45 This resolves bug #1552.
46
47* rc-scripts 1.3.3 (5 April 2002)
48
49 5 April 2002; Martin Schlemmer <azarah@gentoo.org>:
50
51 Move /etc/init.d/{depscan.sh,runscript.sh,functions.sh} to /sbin.
52 This is done to try and ensure system integrity.
53
54 1 April 2002; Martin Schlemmer <azarah@gentoo.org>:
55
56 Add quotes to the "export INPUTRC=/etc/inputrc" line to resolve bug #1391.
57
58 Add a error message to /etc/init.d/consolefont, resolving bug #1415.
59
60 Add a bash check to the code that sets the prompt, fixing bug #1078.
61
62* rc-scripts 1.3.2 (24 Mar 2002)
63
64 24 March 2002; Martin Schlemmer <azarah@gentoo.org>:
65
66 Resolve bug #1274. Updated /etc/init.d/hostname and /etc/init.d/bootmisc
67 for this.
68
69 With the "before" and "after" stuff, recursion levels was getting too high,
70 and with some cases, things just plain did not work as it should. Reworked
71 things to to lower the levels of recursion and get the order right. Updated
72 /etc/init.d/runscript.sh for this.
73
74 Fixed a problem in /sbin/rc and /etc/init.d/runscript.sh where
75 ${svcdir}/softlevel did not always exist, but runscript.sh tried to open it.
76
77 Enhance --quiet support. Updated /etc/init.d/functions.sh for this.
78
79 Remove /etc/pwdb.conf, as pwdb already install a copy of this.
80
81 Remove /etc/pam.d/{rexec,rlogin,rsh} as pam already install this.
82
83 Added $INPUTRC to /etc/profile, since too many people keep on bugging me,
84 and it seems it has fallen now to my discression.
85
86* rc-scripts 1.3.1 (23 Mar 2002)
87
88 23 March 2002; Daniel Robbins <drobbins@gentoo.org>: init.d/net.eth0: fix for
89 DHCP lease release from Jim Nutt.
90
91 23 March 2002; Daniel Robbins <drobbins@gentoo.org>: rolling a new release
92 since there are a lot of important bug fixes in here that are needed.
93
94 23 March 2002; Martin Schlemmer <azarah@gentoo.org>:
95
96 Resolve bug #1292.
97
98 Remove the extra 'depmod -a' in /etc/init.d/modules, thanks to
99 Spidler.
100
101 21 March 2002; Martin Schlemmer <azarah@gentoo.org>:
102
103 Update /sbin/rc to fix a 'cat mounts' instead of the correct
104 version, 'cat /proc/mounts'.
105
106 19 March 2002; Martin Schlemmer <azarah@gentoo.org>:
107
108 Add initial support for the --quiet flag that suppress output.
109
110 18 March 2002; Martin Schlemmer <azarah@gentoo.org>:
111
112 Remove the 'try' from 'try /etc/init.d/depscan.sh' in /sbin/rc
113 as not all errors by depscan.sh is critical. It should be
114 reworked to do better error handeling.
115
116 14 March 2002; Martin Schlemmer <azarah@gentoo.org>:
117
118 Fix the GID and UID of nobody and nogroup in /etc/passwd and
119 /etc/group to match those of Debian, FBSD and others. Thanks
120 to those who reported it, and Woodchip for looking up the
121 proper values.
122
123 Update /etc/init.d/net.eth0 to properly down DHCP interfaces.
124 This resolves bug #1150, thanks to Paul Fleischer.
125
126 11 March 2002; Martin Schlemmer <azarah@gentoo.org>:
127
128 Updated /etc/init.d/functions.sh not to use /usr/bin/basename,
129 as some users have /usr on seperate partition which is not
130 mounted when depscan.sh is run the first time.
131
132 Updated the checking for more than one service providing the
133 same virtual function in /etc/init.d/depscan.sh. It should
134 be working now, and this also fix a problem that when there is no
135 service providing a virtual, counter was used uninitialized.
136
137* rc-scripts 1.3.0 (10 March 2002)
138
139 10 March 2002; Martin Schlemmer <azarah@gentoo.org>: Resolved
140 bug #1021; updated /etc/init.d/consolefont for this.
141
142 Resolved bug #1029; updated /etc/init.d/net.eth0 for this.
143
144 Resolved bug #990; updated /etc/init.d/net.eth0, /etc/init.d/netmount
145 and /etc/init.d/localmount for this.
146
147 Lots of form/syntax cleanups, most things should be more
148 consistant now. Fixed fail detection/return values of lots of
149 scripts.
150
151 Lots of cleanup/fixes in the three main scripts behind our
152 rc-system, /sbin/rc, /etc/init.d/depscan.sh, /etc/init.d/runscript.sh
153
154 Fix a bug regarding a invalid $PATH for portage if /etc/init.d/functions.sh
155 is sourced in a ebuild.
156
157 Fix a bug that our rc-script wrapper introduced: Global variables
158 in scripts no longer worked. Updated /etc/init.d/runscript.sh for
159 this.
160
161 Implemented more error checking for the main startup code in /sbin/rc.
162 Also fixed try() for mounting /proc (maybe all mount commands).
163 The function worked fine in a simulated test, but in real life failed
164 to detect a error when mounting /proc (remember to thank Grant for
165 his UserMode ebuilds, and Guide).
166
167* rc-scripts 1.2.9 (6 March 2002)
168
169 6 March 2002; Martin Schlemmer <azarah@gentoo.org>: General form
170 updates and some piping fixes.
171
172 Updated /etc/inittab, /etc/init.d/xdm and /etc/X11/startDM.sh
173 to fix a problem where startDM.sh would be respawned repeatedly
174 if xdm was not in the default runlevel.
175
176* rc-scripts 1.2.8 (4 March 2002)
177
178 4 March 2002; Martin Schlemmer <azarah@gentoo.org>: add /etc/init.d/xdm,
179 /etc/X11/startDM.sh and updated /etc/inittab to fix the "dead key"
180 problem we had with xdm/gdm/kdm. We should move them to the
181 xfree ebuild later on when things settles down.
182
183 Added some sanity checks to /sbin/rc, /etc/init.d/runscripts.sh.
184
185 Added a basic $PATH to /etc/init.d/functions.sh to fix a problem
186 where we had a invalid $PATH on boot in some cases.
187
188 Updated /etc/init.d/keymap and /etc/init.d/consolefont to work with
189 the new sys-apps/kbd package.
190
191* rc-scripts 1.2.7 (3 March 2002)
192
193 3 March 2002; Martin Schlemmer <azarah@gentoo.org>: fixed the problem
194 of rc-scripts trying to start/stop a service multiple times if it
195 fails to do so. Updated /etc/init.d/runscript.sh and /sbin/rc for
196 this.
197
198 Fixing some variable declarations in /etc/init.d/runscript.sh caused
199 /etc/init.d/net.lo to fail on stop ($IFACE was set invalid). Fixed
200 this.
201
202 Added caching of the "depend() { need foo; } " lines, and updated
203 /etc/init.d/depscan.sh to touch the actual files less. This should
204 speedup dependancy caching a lot, especially on slow machines.
205
206 Updated /etc/passwd to have users with no shell defined, use /bin/false
207 for security.
208
209 Update /etc/fstab to mention /dev/shm since we dont mount it anymore.
210
211 1 March 2002; Martin Schlemmer <azarah@gentoo.org>: added a wrapper for
212 sourcing the rc-scripts to eliminate syntax errors. Thanks to
213 Karl Trygve Kalleberg (aka karltk) for the idea. Updated
214 /etc/init.d/depscan.sh, /etc/init.d/functions.sh and
215 /etc/init.d/runscript.sh for this (added wrap_rcscript() function).
216
217 Removed stopping of dependant services that have current service as
218 a 'use'dependancy ... should be less confusing now.
219 Updated /etc/init.d/runscript.sh for this.
220
221 28 Feb 2002; Martin Schlemmer <azarah@gentoo.org>: add /etc/conf.d/local.start
222 and /etc/conf.d/local.stop for adding any misc programs to startup. This
223 should pretty much have /etc/init.d/ static, except for baselayout updates,
224 etc.
225
226 27 Feb 2002; Martin Schlemmer <azarah@gentoo.org>: in some wierd cases,
227 a redundent /dev/.devfsd on a unmounted /dev can cause problems. Fixed
228 this in /sbin/rc.
229
230 Added the patches from Grant Goodyear (aka g2boojum) to enable us to
231 use a ramdisk to store the contents of ${svcdir}. Updated /sbin/rc,
232 /etc/init.d/functions.sh and /etc/init.d/checkroot for this.
233
234 26 Feb 2002; Martin Schlemmer <azarah@gentoo.org>: fix my brain dead
235 update of the 25th. It really should keep "gentoo=nodevfs" in mind.
236 Also added 'get_bootparam()' to help in retrieving kernel options.
237 Updated /etc/init.d/functions.sh, /etc/init.d/checkroot and /sbin/rc
238 for this.
239
240 Updated /etc/init.d/consolefont to work without devfs as well.
241
242 When rebooting or shutting down, a service should not fail to stop
243 if a service it depends on, fails. Updated /etc/init.d/runscript.sh
244 for this.
245
246 25 Feb 2002; Martin Schlemmer <azarah@gentoo.org>: added a check if
247 /dev is mounted when creating entries for /etc/mtab. This should solve a
248 invalid entry or /dev being mounted even with 'gentoo=nodevfs' option.
249 Updated /etc/init.d/checkroot for this.
250
251 17 Feb 2002: Daniel Robbins <drobbins@gentoo.org>: Made "xfs" the default
252 filesystem in /etc/fstab (from ReiserFS) and removed "notail" option (it's
253 just in a comment now)
254
255 17 Feb 2002: Martin Schlemmer (azarah@gentoo.org): more fixes to 'after' and
256 'before', updated /etc/init.d/runscript.sh for this. This should fix
257 services not getting started in the correct order in a tight loop, services
258 getting stopped out of order, and some other sanity checks. Updated
259 rc-script.sh for updated help.
260
261 15 Feb 2002: Martin Schlemmer (azarah@gentoo.org): update /etc/profile to
262 resolve bug #588. Reimplemented things a bit, and added the 'after' type.
263 'before' and 'after' will only work currently for a change of runlevel.
264 Updated /etc/init.d/depscan.sh, /etc/init.d/runscript.sh and /sbin/rc for it.
265
266 13 Feb 2002: Martin Schlemmer (azarah@gentoo.org): add some more entries to
267 /etc/devfsd.conf to make alsa users life easier ... thanks Tod.
268
269 12 Feb 2002: Martin Schlemmer (azarah@gentoo.org): Some more cleanups to
270 /etc/init.d/depscan.sh and /etc/init.d/runscript.sh.
271
272 Fixed some services not starting again when restarting a service.
273 Seems simple is still the best way.
274
275 Fixed some other problems created with feature additions and cleanups.
276
277 11 Feb 2002: Martin Schlemmer (azarah@gentoo.org): General cleanups to
278 /etc/init.d/depscan.sh and /etc/init.d/runscript.sh.
279
280 Added 'before *' to /etc/init.d/checkroot to make sure it gets
281 started first.
282
283 Added 'use *' to /etc/init.d/local to make sure it gets started
284 last.
285
286 10 Feb 2002: Martin Schlemmer (azarah@gentoo.org): Fixed /sbin/rc
287 to stop a service on change of runlevel if it is in 'use' by
288 another service.
289
290 Added the 'provide' depend type for creating virtual services.
291 Updated /etc/init.d/depscan.sh for this.
292
293 Added the 'before' depend type. This is more for changing the
294 order services start in. Updated /etc/init.d/depscan.sh and
295 /etc/init.d/functions.sh for this.
296
297 Updated /etc/init.d/depscan.sh to work with '*' as argument for
298 dependancy types. This can be used with 'use' and 'before' to
299 start a script last or first respectively.
300
301 Added save_options() and get_options() to /etc/init.d/functions.sh
302 for saving misc settings between startup/shutdown. Updated
303 /etc/init.d/net.eth0 to use these and properly down virtual
304 interfaces.
305
306 6 Feb 2002: Martin Schlemmer (azarah@gentoo.org): updated both
307 /etc/init.d/bootmisc and /etc/init.d/keymaps to be quiet on no
308 errors.
309
310* rc-scripts 1.2.6 (6 Feb 2002)
311
312 2 Feb 2002: Martin Schlemmer (azarah@gentoo.org): updated /etc/net.eth0
313 to specify the gateway device via the $gateway variable (something like
314 gateway="eth0/192.168.0.1").
315
316 2 Feb 2002: Martin Schlemmer (azarah@gentoo.org): added rc-script
317 /etc/init.d/numlock, for enabling numlock at boot.
318
319 29 Jan 2002: Martin Schlemmer (azarah@gentoo.org): hopefully the
320 last fix to /etc/init.d/netmount to umount cleanly. This fix
321 implements a retry if not successful the first time, and will
322 kill processess using the mount. Also small type-o fix to
323 /etc/init.d/halt.sh.
324
325 27 Jan 2002: Donny Davies (woodchip@gentoo.org): security fix to
326 /etc/pam.d/sshd,login,chsh: added pam_shells.so to the stack.
327 Fixed /etc/passwd,group for user/group mysql.
328
329 27 Jan 2002: Martin Schlemmer (azarah@gentoo.org): added charset
330 map file support to /etc/init.d/consolefont and the setting to
331 /etc/rc.conf.

334 in skel files to support both versions of dircolors.
335
336 23 Jan 2002: Martin Schlemmer (azarah@gentoo.org): fixed bug
337 in the restart stuff of /etc/init.d/runscript.sh that caused
338 a restart of a 'net' service not to restart services again
339 that depended on it.
340
341* rc-scripts 1.2.5 (20 Jan 2002)
342
343 20 Jan 2002: Martin Schlemmer (azarah@gentoo.org): updated
344 /etc/init.d/net.eth0 to 'use' pcmcia.
4 345
5 8 Jan 2002: Martin Schlemmer (azarah@gentoo.org): added '--sh' to 346 8 Jan 2002: Martin Schlemmer (azarah@gentoo.org): added '--sh' to
6 the dircolors command in /etc/skel/.bash_profile to handle cases 347 the dircolors command in /etc/skel/.bash_profile to handle cases
