5 30 Jun 2002; Martin Schlemmer <azarah@gentoo.org>:
6
7 Update /etc/skel/.bashrc to update the window title of X terminals
8 that supports it. Closes bug #4232.
9
10 26 Jun 2002; Martin Schlemmer <azarah@gentoo.org>:
11
12 Add sshd user and group. Updated /etc/passwd and /etc/group for this.
13
14 Update /etc/inputrc to resolve bug #2599.
15
16 20 Jun 2002; Martin Schlemmer <azarah@gentoo.org>:
17
18 Add /opt/bin to $PATH and $ROOTPATH, closing bug #3603. Modified
19 /etc/env.d/00basic for this.
20
21 Add some new daemon stop and pid detection stuff to /sbin/functions.sh.
22 Nothing official, but I spent enouth time on it not to want to loose it :)
23
24 Fixed a bug in /sbin/functions.sh that caused rc-scripts run as cron jobs
25 to give output to stderr. This was caused by a call to "stty", which when
26 run without a attatched terminal, have this effect. Basically just pipe
27 stderr to /dev/null.
28
29 5 Jun 2002; Martin Schlemmer <azarah@gentoo.org>:
30
31 Add /usr/local/share/man to $MANPATH (/etc/env.d/00basic), resolving
32 bug #3363
33
34 26 May 2002; Martin Schlemmer <azarah@gentoo.org>:
35
36 Update /etc/init.d/netmount not to try and mount NFS filesystems
37 if portmap was not started. This is to stop "hang" problems for
38 new users who do not add portmap to the default runlevel. See
39 bug #2555.
40
41 Add the video4linux stuff to /etc/devfsd.conf. Resolves bug #2015.
42
43 19 May 2002; Martin Schlemmer <azarah@gentoo.org>:
44
45 Move $EDITOR from /etc/profile to /etc/env.d/00basic.
46
47 13 May 2002; Martin Schlemmer <azarah@gentoo.org>:
48
49 Change the homes of user "at" and "cron" in /etc/passwd, as
50 they moved to /var/spool/cron...
51
52* rc-scripts 1.3.5 (12 May 2002)
53
54 12 May 2002; Martin Schlemmer <azarah@gentoo.org>:
55
56 Make slight modifications to /sbin/depscan.sh to improve speed (about
57 1 second on a celeron 633).
58
59 Finally fix /sbin/runscript.sh to properly handle interdependencies
60 between types need/use and before/after on runlevel change. I can
61 actually kick myself for previous implementations, as this fix simplifies
62 things a lot, and is almost 30 lines of code less!
63
64 Change /etc/init.d/netmount not to fail if all mounts are not mounted.
65 It rather just exit with a warning, as I think most people have like
66 me mounts that are to boxes that are not always up.
67
68 Resolve bug #2439 (should not use try with the dd command for ramdisk
69 stuff). Also increase the number of inodes used for the ramdisk to
70 fix "out of space" errors. Updated /sbin/rc for this.
71
72 10 May 2002; Martin Schlemmer <azarah@gentoo.org>:
73
74 Resolve bug #2505 ... /sbin/rc-envupdate.sh should not use
75 backup files to generate /etc/profile.env.
76
77 Resolve bug #2489 and #2175. Modified /etc/init.d/net.eth0
78 for this.
79
80 6 May 2002; Martin Schlemmer <azarah@gentoo.org>:
81
82 Fixed /sbin/rc-envupdate.sh to only use the $KDEDIR of the highest
83 /etc/env.d/ file. Same for $QTDIR.
84
85 5 May 2002; Martin Schlemmer <azarah@gentoo.org>:
86
87 Add /etc/DIR_COLORS as it is no longer shipped with fileutils,
88 and is needed for some fixes.
89
90 28 April 2002; Martin Schlemmer <azarah@gentoo.org>:
91
92 Update /etc/rc.conf to be more clear and state that you should
93 remove consolefont from startup if you do not use it. Should
94 resolve bug #2174.
95
96 26 April 2002; Donny Davies <woodchip@gentoo.org> passwd, group :
97
98 Added user/group apache with uid/gid 81.
99
100 25 April 2002; Martin Schlemmer <azarah@gentoo.org>:
101
102 Remove the "-net" from the line setting the default gateway
103 in /etc/init.d/net.eth0. Thanks to Peter W. Michaleas for
104 noting this.
105
106 24 April 2002; Donny Davies <woodchip@gentoo.org> rc.conf :
107
108 Remove NFSSERVER from rc.conf since it's now covered in /etc/conf.d/nfs
109 which is installed with the nfs-utils package. Also tidied up some
110 really old, leftover junk like the non-supported stuff from rc5.
111 Closes #1754.
112
113 23 April 2002; Martin Schlemmer <azarah@gentoo.org>:
114
115 Remove creation of /var/run/utmpx from bootmisc again. Seems
116 other people have wierd problems.
117
118* rc-scripts 1.3.4 (21 April 2002)
119
120 21 April 2002; Martin Schlemmer <azarah@gentoo.org>:
121
122 Add /sbin/rc-envupdate.sh to speedup updating of /etc/profile.env,
123 and /etc/csh.env. Update /etc/init.d/bootmisc to use this.
124
125 Implement the status commandline argument. Updated /sbin/runscript.sh
126 and /sbin/rc-help.sh for this.
127
128 Fix /sbin/depscan.sh to honour NEED and USE overriding BEFORE
129 and AFTER.
130
131 12 April 2002; Martin Schlemmer <azarah@gentoo.org>:
132
133 Update /etc/init.d/bootmisc to create /var/run/utmpx. This
134 is needed, else /usr/bin/newgrp segfault.
135
136 11 April 2002; Martin Schlemmer <azarah@gentoo.org>:
137
138 Update /etc/skel/.bash_profile to make it tcsh compadible.
139 Thanks to Väinö Järvelä for this fix.
140
141 Update /etc/profile to also set the PS? variables if $SHELL
142 is set to /bin/sh. This should make prompt colours in
143 bootstrap work again.
144
145 Move LVM stuff to checkfs to ensure that they get fscked.
146 This resolves bug #1552.
147
148* rc-scripts 1.3.3 (5 April 2002)
149
150 5 April 2002; Martin Schlemmer <azarah@gentoo.org>:
151
152 Move /etc/init.d/{depscan.sh,runscript.sh,functions.sh} to /sbin.
153 This is done to try and ensure system integrity.
154
155 1 April 2002; Martin Schlemmer <azarah@gentoo.org>:
156
157 Add quotes to the "export INPUTRC=/etc/inputrc" line to resolve bug #1391.
158
159 Add a error message to /etc/init.d/consolefont, resolving bug #1415.
160
161 Add a bash check to the code that sets the prompt, fixing bug #1078.
162
163* rc-scripts 1.3.2 (24 Mar 2002)
164
165 24 March 2002; Martin Schlemmer <azarah@gentoo.org>:
166
167 Resolve bug #1274. Updated /etc/init.d/hostname and /etc/init.d/bootmisc
168 for this.
169
170 With the "before" and "after" stuff, recursion levels was getting too high,
171 and with some cases, things just plain did not work as it should. Reworked
172 things to to lower the levels of recursion and get the order right. Updated
173 /etc/init.d/runscript.sh for this.
174
175 Fixed a problem in /sbin/rc and /etc/init.d/runscript.sh where
176 ${svcdir}/softlevel did not always exist, but runscript.sh tried to open it.
177
178 Enhance --quiet support. Updated /etc/init.d/functions.sh for this.
179
180 Remove /etc/pwdb.conf, as pwdb already install a copy of this.
181
182 Remove /etc/pam.d/{rexec,rlogin,rsh} as pam already install this.
183
184 Added $INPUTRC to /etc/profile, since too many people keep on bugging me,
185 and it seems it has fallen now to my discression.
186
187* rc-scripts 1.3.1 (23 Mar 2002)
188
189 23 March 2002; Daniel Robbins <drobbins@gentoo.org>: init.d/net.eth0: fix for
190 DHCP lease release from Jim Nutt.
191
192 23 March 2002; Daniel Robbins <drobbins@gentoo.org>: rolling a new release
193 since there are a lot of important bug fixes in here that are needed.
194
195 23 March 2002; Martin Schlemmer <azarah@gentoo.org>:
196
197 Resolve bug #1292.
198
199 Remove the extra 'depmod -a' in /etc/init.d/modules, thanks to
200 Spidler.
201
202 21 March 2002; Martin Schlemmer <azarah@gentoo.org>:
203
204 Update /sbin/rc to fix a 'cat mounts' instead of the correct
205 version, 'cat /proc/mounts'.
206
207 19 March 2002; Martin Schlemmer <azarah@gentoo.org>:
208
209 Add initial support for the --quiet flag that suppress output.
210
211 18 March 2002; Martin Schlemmer <azarah@gentoo.org>:
212
213 Remove the 'try' from 'try /etc/init.d/depscan.sh' in /sbin/rc
214 as not all errors by depscan.sh is critical. It should be
215 reworked to do better error handeling.
216
217 14 March 2002; Martin Schlemmer <azarah@gentoo.org>:
218
219 Fix the GID and UID of nobody and nogroup in /etc/passwd and
220 /etc/group to match those of Debian, FBSD and others. Thanks
221 to those who reported it, and Woodchip for looking up the
222 proper values.
223
224 Update /etc/init.d/net.eth0 to properly down DHCP interfaces.
225 This resolves bug #1150, thanks to Paul Fleischer.
226
227 11 March 2002; Martin Schlemmer <azarah@gentoo.org>:
228
229 Updated /etc/init.d/functions.sh not to use /usr/bin/basename,
230 as some users have /usr on seperate partition which is not
231 mounted when depscan.sh is run the first time.
232
233 Updated the checking for more than one service providing the
234 same virtual function in /etc/init.d/depscan.sh. It should
235 be working now, and this also fix a problem that when there is no
236 service providing a virtual, counter was used uninitialized.
237
238* rc-scripts 1.3.0 (10 March 2002)
239
240 10 March 2002; Martin Schlemmer <azarah@gentoo.org>:
241
242 Resolved bug #1021; updated /etc/init.d/consolefont for this.
243
244 Resolved bug #1029; updated /etc/init.d/net.eth0 for this.
245
246 Resolved bug #990; updated /etc/init.d/net.eth0, /etc/init.d/netmount
247 and /etc/init.d/localmount for this.
248
249 Lots of form/syntax cleanups, most things should be more
250 consistant now. Fixed fail detection/return values of lots of
251 scripts.
252
253 Lots of cleanup/fixes in the three main scripts behind our
254 rc-system, /sbin/rc, /etc/init.d/depscan.sh, /etc/init.d/runscript.sh
255
256 Fix a bug regarding a invalid $PATH for portage if /etc/init.d/functions.sh
257 is sourced in a ebuild.
258
259 Fix a bug that our rc-script wrapper introduced: Global variables
260 in scripts no longer worked. Updated /etc/init.d/runscript.sh for
261 this.
262
263 Implemented more error checking for the main startup code in /sbin/rc.
264 Also fixed try() for mounting /proc (maybe all mount commands).
265 The function worked fine in a simulated test, but in real life failed
266 to detect a error when mounting /proc (remember to thank Grant for
267 his UserMode ebuilds, and Guide).
268
269* rc-scripts 1.2.9 (6 March 2002)
270
271 6 March 2002; Martin Schlemmer <azarah@gentoo.org>:
272
273 General form updates and some piping fixes.
274
275 Updated /etc/inittab, /etc/init.d/xdm and /etc/X11/startDM.sh
276 to fix a problem where startDM.sh would be respawned repeatedly
277 if xdm was not in the default runlevel.
278
279* rc-scripts 1.2.8 (4 March 2002)
280
281 4 March 2002; Martin Schlemmer <azarah@gentoo.org>:
282
283 Add /etc/init.d/xdm, /etc/X11/startDM.sh and updated /etc/inittab
284 to fix the "dead key" problem we had with xdm/gdm/kdm. We should
285 move them to the xfree ebuild later on when things settles down.
286
287 Added some sanity checks to /sbin/rc, /etc/init.d/runscripts.sh.
288
289 Added a basic $PATH to /etc/init.d/functions.sh to fix a problem
290 where we had a invalid $PATH on boot in some cases.
291
292 Updated /etc/init.d/keymap and /etc/init.d/consolefont to work with
293 the new sys-apps/kbd package.
294
295* rc-scripts 1.2.7 (3 March 2002)
296
297 3 March 2002; Martin Schlemmer <azarah@gentoo.org>:
298
299 Fixed the problem of rc-scripts trying to start/stop a service multiple
300 times if it fails to do so. Updated /etc/init.d/runscript.sh and /sbin/rc
301 for this.
302
303 Fixing some variable declarations in /etc/init.d/runscript.sh caused
304 /etc/init.d/net.lo to fail on stop ($IFACE was set invalid). Fixed
305 this.
306
307 Added caching of the "depend() { need foo; } " lines, and updated
308 /etc/init.d/depscan.sh to touch the actual files less. This should
309 speedup dependancy caching a lot, especially on slow machines.
310
311 Updated /etc/passwd to have users with no shell defined, use /bin/false
312 for security.
313
314 Update /etc/fstab to mention /dev/shm since we dont mount it anymore.
315
316 1 March 2002; Martin Schlemmer <azarah@gentoo.org>:
317
318 Added a wrapper for sourcing the rc-scripts to eliminate syntax errors.
319 Thanks to Karl Trygve Kalleberg (aka karltk) for the idea. Updated
320 /etc/init.d/depscan.sh, /etc/init.d/functions.sh and
321 /etc/init.d/runscript.sh for this (added wrap_rcscript() function).
322
323 Removed stopping of dependant services that have current service as
324 a 'use'dependancy ... should be less confusing now.
325 Updated /etc/init.d/runscript.sh for this.
326
327 28 Feb 2002; Martin Schlemmer <azarah@gentoo.org>:
328
329 Add /etc/conf.d/local.start and /etc/conf.d/local.stop for adding any misc
330 programs to startup. This should pretty much have /etc/init.d/ static,
331 except for baselayout updates, etc.
332
333 27 Feb 2002; Martin Schlemmer <azarah@gentoo.org>:
334
335 In some wierd cases, a redundent /dev/.devfsd on a unmounted /dev can cause
336 problems. Fixed this in /sbin/rc.
337
338 Added the patches from Grant Goodyear (aka g2boojum) to enable us to
339 use a ramdisk to store the contents of ${svcdir}. Updated /sbin/rc,
340 /etc/init.d/functions.sh and /etc/init.d/checkroot for this.
341
342 26 Feb 2002; Martin Schlemmer <azarah@gentoo.org>:
343
344 Fix my brain dead update of the 25th. It really should keep
345 "gentoo=nodevfs" in mind. Also added 'get_bootparam()' to help in
346 retrieving kernel options. Updated /etc/init.d/functions.sh,
347 /etc/init.d/checkroot and /sbin/rc for this.
348
349 Updated /etc/init.d/consolefont to work without devfs as well.
350
351 When rebooting or shutting down, a service should not fail to stop
352 if a service it depends on, fails. Updated /etc/init.d/runscript.sh
353 for this.
354
355 25 Feb 2002; Martin Schlemmer <azarah@gentoo.org>:
356
357 Added a check if /dev is mounted when creating entries for /etc/mtab.
358 This should solve a invalid entry or /dev being mounted even with
359 'gentoo=nodevfs' option. Updated /etc/init.d/checkroot for this.
360
361 17 Feb 2002: Daniel Robbins <drobbins@gentoo.org>: Made "xfs" the default
362 filesystem in /etc/fstab (from ReiserFS) and removed "notail" option (it's
363 just in a comment now)
364
365 17 Feb 2002: Martin Schlemmer (azarah@gentoo.org):
366
367 Mmore fixes to 'after' and 'before', updated /etc/init.d/runscript.sh for
368 this. This should fix services not getting started in the correct order
369 in a tight loop, services getting stopped out of order, and some other
370 sanity checks. Updated rc-script.sh for updated help.
371
372 15 Feb 2002: Martin Schlemmer (azarah@gentoo.org):
373
374 Update /etc/profile to resolve bug #588. Reimplemented things a bit,
375 and added the 'after' type. 'before' and 'after' will only work currently
376 for a change of runlevel. Updated /etc/init.d/depscan.sh,
377 /etc/init.d/runscript.sh and /sbin/rc for this.
378
379 13 Feb 2002: Martin Schlemmer (azarah@gentoo.org):
380
381 Add some more entries to /etc/devfsd.conf to make alsa users life
382 easier ... thanks Tod.
383
384 12 Feb 2002: Martin Schlemmer (azarah@gentoo.org):
385
386 Some more cleanups to /etc/init.d/depscan.sh and /etc/init.d/runscript.sh.
387
388 Fixed some services not starting again when restarting a service.
389 Seems simple is still the best way.
390
391 Fixed some other problems created with feature additions and cleanups.
392
393 11 Feb 2002: Martin Schlemmer (azarah@gentoo.org):
394
395 General cleanups to /etc/init.d/depscan.sh and /etc/init.d/runscript.sh.
396
397 Added 'before *' to /etc/init.d/checkroot to make sure it gets
398 started first.
399
400 Added 'use *' to /etc/init.d/local to make sure it gets started
401 last.
402
403 10 Feb 2002: Martin Schlemmer (azarah@gentoo.org):
404
405 Fixed /sbin/rc to stop a service on change of runlevel if it is
406 in 'use' by another service.
407
408 Added the 'provide' depend type for creating virtual services.
409 Updated /etc/init.d/depscan.sh for this.
410
411 Added the 'before' depend type. This is more for changing the
412 order services start in. Updated /etc/init.d/depscan.sh and
413 /etc/init.d/functions.sh for this.
414
415 Updated /etc/init.d/depscan.sh to work with '*' as argument for
416 dependancy types. This can be used with 'use' and 'before' to
417 start a script last or first respectively.
418
419 Added save_options() and get_options() to /etc/init.d/functions.sh
420 for saving misc settings between startup/shutdown. Updated
421 /etc/init.d/net.eth0 to use these and properly down virtual
422 interfaces.
423
424 6 Feb 2002: Martin Schlemmer (azarah@gentoo.org):
425
426 Updated both /etc/init.d/bootmisc and /etc/init.d/keymaps to be quiet
427 on no errors.
428
429* rc-scripts 1.2.6 (6 Feb 2002)
430
431 2 Feb 2002: Martin Schlemmer (azarah@gentoo.org):
432
433 Updated /etc/net.eth0 to specify the gateway device via the $gateway
434 variable (something like gateway="eth0/192.168.0.1").
435
436 2 Feb 2002: Martin Schlemmer (azarah@gentoo.org):
437
438 Added rc-script /etc/init.d/numlock, for enabling numlock at boot.
439
440 29 Jan 2002: Martin Schlemmer (azarah@gentoo.org):
441
442 Hopefully the last fix to /etc/init.d/netmount to umount cleanly. This fix
443 implements a retry if not successful the first time, and will kill
444 processess using the mount. Also small type-o fix to /etc/init.d/halt.sh.
445
446 27 Jan 2002: Donny Davies (woodchip@gentoo.org): security fix to
447 /etc/pam.d/sshd,login,chsh: added pam_shells.so to the stack.
448 Fixed /etc/passwd,group for user/group mysql.
449
450 27 Jan 2002: Martin Schlemmer (azarah@gentoo.org): added charset
451 map file support to /etc/init.d/consolefont and the setting to
452 /etc/rc.conf.
453
454 25 Jan 2002: Martin Schlemmer (azarah@gentoo.org): fixed dircolors
455 in skel files to support both versions of dircolors.
456
457 23 Jan 2002: Martin Schlemmer (azarah@gentoo.org): fixed bug
458 in the restart stuff of /etc/init.d/runscript.sh that caused
459 a restart of a 'net' service not to restart services again
460 that depended on it.
461
462* rc-scripts 1.2.5 (20 Jan 2002)
463
464 20 Jan 2002: Martin Schlemmer (azarah@gentoo.org): updated
465 /etc/init.d/net.eth0 to 'use' pcmcia.
466
467 8 Jan 2002: Martin Schlemmer (azarah@gentoo.org): added '--sh' to
468 the dircolors command in /etc/skel/.bash_profile to handle cases
469 where bash do not export $SHELL.
470
471 6 Jan 2002: Martin Schlemmer (azarah@gentoo.org): updated
472 /etc/init.d/runscripts.sh, /etc/init.d/net.eth0, /etc/conf.d/net and
473 removed /etc/init.d/net.eth0-dhcp to reflect a new 'bsd-ish' config
474 scheme for the net.eth* scripts.
475
476 6 Jan 2002: Donny Davies (woodchip@gentoo.org): Removed email address
477 from manpages; no need for that..

479 5 Jan 2002: Martin Schlemmer (azarah@gentoo.org): fix type-o in
480 /etc/devfsd.conf; had 'dvd' in the cdrw stuff.
481
482* rc-scripts 1.2.4 (30 Dec 2001)
483
484 30 Dec 2001: Daniel Robbins (drobbins@gentoo.org): Changed default umask
485 back to 022 as it should be.
486
487 30 Dec 2001; Martin Schlemmer (azarah@gentoo.org): Updated
488 /etc/init.d/checkfs to return 0 if the fs was successfully repaired.
489
490 29 Dec 2001; Donny Davies (woodchip@gentoo.org):
491 sort -t: -k3,3 -n /etc/passwd,group. Ahhhh :))
492
493 28 Dec 2001; Martin Schlemmer (azarah@gentoo.org);
494
495 Updated /etc/init.d/depscan.sh to store info about missing dependancies
496 of type 'need' in ${svcdir}/broken. Also updated /etc/init.d/runscript.sh
497 to use this when starting a script ('need' dependancies is critical for
498 startup). Added the broken() function to /etc/init.d/runscript.sh
499 to list the missing dependancies.
500
501 Updated /etc/init.d/runscript.sh for svc_start() to have better error
502 checking.
503
504 Updated /etc/init.d/functions.sh with ewend(), which is the same as
505 eend(), but print a warning on error, not a error. Updated
506 /etc/init.d/checkroot and /etc/init.d/checkfs to use this function.
507
508 27 Dec 2001; Martin Schlemmer (azarah@gentoo.org);
509
510 Update /sbin/runscript.c to run /etc/init.d/rc-help.sh if no arguments
511 is passed to a rc-script.
512
513 Added /etc/init.d/rc-help.sh, simple script that prints out help for
514 the rc-scripts.
515
516 25 Dec 2001; Martin Schlemmer (azarah@gentoo.org);
517
518 Update /etc/init.d/shutdown.sh and /etc/init.d/reboot.sh not to force the
519 halt and reboot. This fixes a problem where / was not unmounted properly
520 in some cases.
521
522 24 Dec 2001; Martin Schlemmer (azarah@gentoo.org):
523
524 Move $svcdir to to /etc/init.d/functions.sh, and update
525 /etc/init.d/runscript.sh and /etc/init.d/depscan.sh for this
526
527 Modified /etc/init.d/runscript.sh to also restart the services that
528 depend on a service if that service is restarted. Enhanced the
529 restart function to be able to have custom restart() functions in
530 rc-scripts. The custom restart() have to use svc_stop() and
531 svc_start() to restart the service.
532
533 Add a pause function to /etc/init.d/runscript.sh. It will basically
534 stop a service without stopping the services that depends on that
535 service.
536
537 Add a pause function to /etc/init.d/runscript.sh. It will basically stop a
538 service without stopping the services that depends on that service.
539
540* rc-scripts 1.2.3 (18 Dec 2001)
541
542 16 Dec 2001; Martin Schlemmer (azarah@gentoo.org):
543
544 Moved the stuff from /sbin/init (old) to /sbin/rc (basically drop the
545 init wrapper we used).
546
547 Some cleanups: take out the shm resize comment;
548
549 remove the $wrongmount;
550
551 remove the mountshm() function and insert it directly
552 where needed;
553
554 remove the setting of $PATH as /sbin/init already do
555 this for us.
556
557 Added the if statement to detect if it is the first time the 'boot'
558 runlevel is executed (if [ "$RUNLEVEL" = "S" ] && [ "$argv1" = "boot" ]).
559 $RUNLEVEL is a env var set by /sbin/init.
560
561 Also added functionality to detect if the kernel have DEVFS support
562 compiled in; seems new users thinks devfs is unstable and as they do
563 not always read the docs, it does not get compiled in ;/ Should
564 make live for us a bit easier.
565
566 14 Dec 2001; Martin Schlemmer (azarah@gentoo.org):
567
568 Fixed /sbin/rc to kill a cosmetic bug in the part that stops all
569 the unneeded services.

45
46 Added a localhost line to /etc/hosts after yet another post to gentoo-user.

48 plunge ....

58 Updated /sbin/init to move the entries in /lib/dev-state to /dev before 619 Updated /sbin/init to move the entries in /lib/dev-state to /dev before
59 running devfsd, as it did still not save settings properly. Also removed 620 running devfsd, as it did still not save settings properly. Also removed
60 old /dev-state/compat stuff. 621 old /dev-state/compat stuff.
61 622
62 Removed a stupid bug out of /sbin/init ... /lib/dev-state/* was moved
63 to /dev *before* /dev was mounted.
64
65 Seems the .keep files in /lib/dev-state/pts and /lib/dev-state/shm
66 caused /sbin/init to lock while moving /lib/dev-state/* to /dev. Added
67 the needed fixes to the baselayout ebuild.
68
69 On second thoughts, removed the 'try' out of the code that moves
70 /lib/dev-state/* to /dev, since this is not a critical task, and
71 booting will still continue on failure.
