5 10 May 2002; Martin Schlemmer <azarah@gentoo.org>:
6
7 Resolve bug #2505 ... /sbin/rc-envupdate.sh should not use
8 backup files to generate /etc/profile.env.
9
10 Resolve bug #2489 and #2175. Modified /etc/init.d/net.eth0
11 for this.
12
13 6 May 2002; Martin Schlemmer <azarah@gentoo.org>:
14
15 Fixed /sbin/rc-envupdate.sh to only use the $KDEDIR of the highest

17
18 5 May 2002; Martin Schlemmer <azarah@gentoo.org>:
19
20 Add /etc/DIR_COLORS as it is no longer shipped with fileutils,
21 and is needed for some fixes.
22
23 28 April 2002; Martin Schlemmer <azarah@gentoo.org>:
24
25 Update /etc/rc.conf to be more clear and state that you should
26 remove consolefont from startup if you do not use it. Should
27 resolve bug #2174.
28
29 26 April 2002; Donny Davies <woodchip@gentoo.org> passwd, group :

34
35 Remove the "-net" from the line setting the default gateway
36 in /etc/init.d/net.eth0. Thanks to Peter W. Michaleas for
37 noting this.
38
39 24 April 2002; Donny Davies <woodchip@gentoo.org> rc.conf :
40
41 Remove NFSSERVER from rc.conf since it's now covered in /etc/conf.d/nfs
42 which is installed with the nfs-utils package. Also tidied up some
43 really old, leftover junk like the non-supported stuff from rc5.
44 Closes #1754.
45
46 23 April 2002; Martin Schlemmer <azarah@gentoo.org>:
47
48 Remove creation of /var/run/utmpx from bootmisc again. Seems
49 other people have wierd problems.
50
51* rc-scripts 1.3.4 (21 April 2002)
52
53 21 April 2002; Martin Schlemmer <azarah@gentoo.org>:
54
55 Add /sbin/rc-envupdate.sh to speedup updating of /etc/profile.env,
56 and /etc/csh.env. Update /etc/init.d/bootmisc to use this.
57
58 Implement the status commandline argument. Updated /sbin/runscript.sh
59 and /sbin/rc-help.sh for this.
60
61 Fix /sbin/depscan.sh to honour NEED and USE overriding BEFORE
62 and AFTER.
63
64 12 April 2002; Martin Schlemmer <azarah@gentoo.org>:
65
66 Update /etc/init.d/bootmisc to create /var/run/utmpx. This

69 11 April 2002; Martin Schlemmer <azarah@gentoo.org>:
70
71 Update /etc/skel/.bash_profile to make it tcsh compadible.
72 Thanks to Väinö Järvelä for this fix.
73
74 Update /etc/profile to also set the PS? variables if $SHELL
75 is set to /bin/sh. This should make prompt colours in
76 bootstrap work again.
77
78 Move LVM stuff to checkfs to ensure that they get fscked.
79 This resolves bug #1552.
80
81* rc-scripts 1.3.3 (5 April 2002)
82
83 5 April 2002; Martin Schlemmer <azarah@gentoo.org>:
84
85 Move /etc/init.d/{depscan.sh,runscript.sh,functions.sh} to /sbin.
86 This is done to try and ensure system integrity.
87
88 1 April 2002; Martin Schlemmer <azarah@gentoo.org>:
89
90 Add quotes to the "export INPUTRC=/etc/inputrc" line to resolve bug #1391.
91
92 Add a error message to /etc/init.d/consolefont, resolving bug #1415.
93
94 Add a bash check to the code that sets the prompt, fixing bug #1078.

96* rc-scripts 1.3.2 (24 Mar 2002)
97
98 24 March 2002; Martin Schlemmer <azarah@gentoo.org>:
99
100 Resolve bug #1274. Updated /etc/init.d/hostname and /etc/init.d/bootmisc
101 for this.
102
103 With the "before" and "after" stuff, recursion levels was getting too high,
104 and with some cases, things just plain did not work as it should. Reworked
105 things to to lower the levels of recursion and get the order right. Updated
106 /etc/init.d/runscript.sh for this.
107
108 Fixed a problem in /sbin/rc and /etc/init.d/runscript.sh where
109 ${svcdir}/softlevel did not always exist, but runscript.sh tried to open it.
110
111 Enhance --quiet support. Updated /etc/init.d/functions.sh for this.
112
113 Remove /etc/pwdb.conf, as pwdb already install a copy of this.
114
115 Remove /etc/pam.d/{rexec,rlogin,rsh} as pam already install this.
116
117 Added $INPUTRC to /etc/profile, since too many people keep on bugging me,
118 and it seems it has fallen now to my discression.
119
120* rc-scripts 1.3.1 (23 Mar 2002)
121
122 23 March 2002; Daniel Robbins <drobbins@gentoo.org>: init.d/net.eth0: fix for
123 DHCP lease release from Jim Nutt.
124
125 23 March 2002; Daniel Robbins <drobbins@gentoo.org>: rolling a new release
126 since there are a lot of important bug fixes in here that are needed.
127
128 23 March 2002; Martin Schlemmer <azarah@gentoo.org>:
129
130 Resolve bug #1292.
131
132 Remove the extra 'depmod -a' in /etc/init.d/modules, thanks to
133 Spidler.
134
135 21 March 2002; Martin Schlemmer <azarah@gentoo.org>:
136
137 Update /sbin/rc to fix a 'cat mounts' instead of the correct
138 version, 'cat /proc/mounts'.
139
140 19 March 2002; Martin Schlemmer <azarah@gentoo.org>:
141
142 Add initial support for the --quiet flag that suppress output.
143
144 18 March 2002; Martin Schlemmer <azarah@gentoo.org>:
145
146 Remove the 'try' from 'try /etc/init.d/depscan.sh' in /sbin/rc
147 as not all errors by depscan.sh is critical. It should be
148 reworked to do better error handeling.
149
150 14 March 2002; Martin Schlemmer <azarah@gentoo.org>:
151
152 Fix the GID and UID of nobody and nogroup in /etc/passwd and
153 /etc/group to match those of Debian, FBSD and others. Thanks
154 to those who reported it, and Woodchip for looking up the
155 proper values.
156
157 Update /etc/init.d/net.eth0 to properly down DHCP interfaces.
158 This resolves bug #1150, thanks to Paul Fleischer.
159
160 11 March 2002; Martin Schlemmer <azarah@gentoo.org>:
161
162 Updated /etc/init.d/functions.sh not to use /usr/bin/basename,
163 as some users have /usr on seperate partition which is not
164 mounted when depscan.sh is run the first time.
165
166 Updated the checking for more than one service providing the
167 same virtual function in /etc/init.d/depscan.sh. It should
168 be working now, and this also fix a problem that when there is no
169 service providing a virtual, counter was used uninitialized.
170
171* rc-scripts 1.3.0 (10 March 2002)
172
173 10 March 2002; Martin Schlemmer <azarah@gentoo.org>: Resolved
174 bug #1021; updated /etc/init.d/consolefont for this.
175
176 Resolved bug #1029; updated /etc/init.d/net.eth0 for this.
177
178 Resolved bug #990; updated /etc/init.d/net.eth0, /etc/init.d/netmount
179 and /etc/init.d/localmount for this.
180
181 Lots of form/syntax cleanups, most things should be more
182 consistant now. Fixed fail detection/return values of lots of
183 scripts.
184
185 Lots of cleanup/fixes in the three main scripts behind our
186 rc-system, /sbin/rc, /etc/init.d/depscan.sh, /etc/init.d/runscript.sh
187
188 Fix a bug regarding a invalid $PATH for portage if /etc/init.d/functions.sh
189 is sourced in a ebuild.
190
191 Fix a bug that our rc-script wrapper introduced: Global variables
192 in scripts no longer worked. Updated /etc/init.d/runscript.sh for
193 this.
194
195 Implemented more error checking for the main startup code in /sbin/rc.
196 Also fixed try() for mounting /proc (maybe all mount commands).
197 The function worked fine in a simulated test, but in real life failed
198 to detect a error when mounting /proc (remember to thank Grant for
199 his UserMode ebuilds, and Guide).
200
201* rc-scripts 1.2.9 (6 March 2002)
202
203 6 March 2002; Martin Schlemmer <azarah@gentoo.org>: General form
204 updates and some piping fixes.
205
206 Updated /etc/inittab, /etc/init.d/xdm and /etc/X11/startDM.sh
207 to fix a problem where startDM.sh would be respawned repeatedly
208 if xdm was not in the default runlevel.
209
210* rc-scripts 1.2.8 (4 March 2002)
211
212 4 March 2002; Martin Schlemmer <azarah@gentoo.org>: add /etc/init.d/xdm,
213 /etc/X11/startDM.sh and updated /etc/inittab to fix the "dead key"
214 problem we had with xdm/gdm/kdm. We should move them to the
215 xfree ebuild later on when things settles down.
216
217 Added some sanity checks to /sbin/rc, /etc/init.d/runscripts.sh.
218
219 Added a basic $PATH to /etc/init.d/functions.sh to fix a problem
220 where we had a invalid $PATH on boot in some cases.
221
222 Updated /etc/init.d/keymap and /etc/init.d/consolefont to work with
223 the new sys-apps/kbd package.
224
225* rc-scripts 1.2.7 (3 March 2002)
226
227 3 March 2002; Martin Schlemmer <azarah@gentoo.org>: fixed the problem
228 of rc-scripts trying to start/stop a service multiple times if it
229 fails to do so. Updated /etc/init.d/runscript.sh and /sbin/rc for
230 this.
231
232 Fixing some variable declarations in /etc/init.d/runscript.sh caused
233 /etc/init.d/net.lo to fail on stop ($IFACE was set invalid). Fixed
234 this.
235
236 Added caching of the "depend() { need foo; } " lines, and updated
237 /etc/init.d/depscan.sh to touch the actual files less. This should
238 speedup dependancy caching a lot, especially on slow machines.
239
240 Updated /etc/passwd to have users with no shell defined, use /bin/false
241 for security.
242
243 Update /etc/fstab to mention /dev/shm since we dont mount it anymore.
244
245 1 March 2002; Martin Schlemmer <azarah@gentoo.org>: added a wrapper for
246 sourcing the rc-scripts to eliminate syntax errors. Thanks to
247 Karl Trygve Kalleberg (aka karltk) for the idea. Updated
248 /etc/init.d/depscan.sh, /etc/init.d/functions.sh and
249 /etc/init.d/runscript.sh for this (added wrap_rcscript() function).
250
251 Removed stopping of dependant services that have current service as
252 a 'use'dependancy ... should be less confusing now.
253 Updated /etc/init.d/runscript.sh for this.
254
255 28 Feb 2002; Martin Schlemmer <azarah@gentoo.org>: add /etc/conf.d/local.start
256 and /etc/conf.d/local.stop for adding any misc programs to startup. This
257 should pretty much have /etc/init.d/ static, except for baselayout updates,
258 etc.
259
260 27 Feb 2002; Martin Schlemmer <azarah@gentoo.org>: in some wierd cases,
261 a redundent /dev/.devfsd on a unmounted /dev can cause problems. Fixed
262 this in /sbin/rc.
263
264 Added the patches from Grant Goodyear (aka g2boojum) to enable us to
265 use a ramdisk to store the contents of ${svcdir}. Updated /sbin/rc,
266 /etc/init.d/functions.sh and /etc/init.d/checkroot for this.
267
268 26 Feb 2002; Martin Schlemmer <azarah@gentoo.org>: fix my brain dead
269 update of the 25th. It really should keep "gentoo=nodevfs" in mind.
270 Also added 'get_bootparam()' to help in retrieving kernel options.
271 Updated /etc/init.d/functions.sh, /etc/init.d/checkroot and /sbin/rc
272 for this.
273
274 Updated /etc/init.d/consolefont to work without devfs as well.
275
276 When rebooting or shutting down, a service should not fail to stop
277 if a service it depends on, fails. Updated /etc/init.d/runscript.sh
278 for this.
4 279
5 25 Feb 2002; Martin Schlemmer <azarah@gentoo.org>: added a check if 280 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 281 /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. 282 invalid entry or /dev being mounted even with 'gentoo=nodevfs' option.
8 Updated /etc/init.d/checkroot for this. 283 Updated /etc/init.d/checkroot for this.
