5 6 May 2002; Martin Schlemmer <azarah@gentoo.org>:
5 6
7 Fixed /sbin/rc-envupdate.sh to only use the $KDEDIR of the highest
8 /etc/env.d/ file. Same for $QTDIR.
9
10 5 May 2002; Martin Schlemmer <azarah@gentoo.org>:
11
12 Add /etc/DIR_COLORS as it is no longer shipped with fileutils,
13 and is needed for some fixes.
14
15 28 April 2002; Martin Schlemmer <azarah@gentoo.org>:
16
17 Update /etc/rc.conf to be more clear and state that you should
18 remove consolefont from startup if you do not use it. Should
19 resolve bug #2174.
20
21 26 April 2002; Donny Davies <woodchip@gentoo.org> passwd, group :
22
23 Added user/group apache with uid/gid 81.

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

10 and 'after' will only work currently for a change of runlevel. 289 'before' and 'after' will only work currently for a change of runlevel.
11 Updated /etc/init.d/depscan.sh, /etc/init.d/runscript.sh and 290 Updated /etc/init.d/depscan.sh, /etc/init.d/runscript.sh and /sbin/rc for it.
12 /sbin/rc for it.
