7 Add one more check to genenviron.awk, to spot cases where there is a
8 space between the variable and the '='.

10 08 Apr 2003; Martin Schlemmer <azarah@gentoo.org>:
11
12 Fix interactive shell not to have coloured prompt when used as a
13 dumb client, bug #18886. Fix was inspired by patch from
14 Matthew Kennedy <mkennedy@gentoo.org>.

17
18 06 Apr 2003; Martin Schlemmer <azarah@gentoo.org>:
19
20 Hopefully get the serial support sane again. Added /bin/consoletype
21 from Redhat to check for serial console. This should resolve bug
22 #18329 partly.
23
24 Add the --nocolor option to suppress the use of colors.
25
26 Change the 'status' option to return true if the service is running,
27 and false if stopped. This is only if the '--quiet' flag was also
28 given.
29
30 Change the start and stop options not to output or return false if
31 the '--quiet' flag was given.
32
33 Redirect stderr for consolechars in /etc/init.d/consolefont to /dev/null
34 as well, fixing bug #18344.
35
36 Optimize $EDITOR extraction in /etc/profile closing bug #18614, thanks to
37 Aron Griffis <agriffis@gentoo.org>.
38
39 Set HALT to 'shutdown' or 'reboot' depending on if we are shutting down
40 or rebooting.
41

46 24 Mar 2003; Martin Schlemmer <azarah@gentoo.org>:
47
48 Optimize USB fs stuff in /etc/init.d/localmount to use less cats etc.
49 Fix a problem where it might not have mounted the USB fs when usbcore
50 was compiled as module, and the kernel did not mount it by the time
51 the script was started. Get it to rather check what filesystems is
52 supported when deciding if it should use 'usbdevfs' or 'usbfs', as
53 later 2.4 kernels now also support the newer 'usbfs'.
54
55 Optimize RAID stuff in /etc/init.d/checkfs a bit.
56
57 16 Mar 2003; Martin Schlemmer <azarah@gentoo.org>:
