5 08 Apr 2003; Martin Schlemmer <azarah@gentoo.org>:
6
7 Fix interactive shell not to have coloured prompt when used as a
8 dumb client, bug #18886. Fix was inspired by patch from
9 Matthew Kennedy <mkennedy@gentoo.org>.
10
11* rc-scripts 1.4.3.5 (06 Apr 2003)
12
13 06 Apr 2003; Martin Schlemmer <azarah@gentoo.org>:
14
15 Hopefully get the serial support sane again. Added /bin/consoletype
16 from Redhat to check for serial console. This should resolve bug
17 #18329 partly.
18
19 Add the --nocolor option to suppress the use of colors.
20
21 Change the 'status' option to return true if the service is running,
22 and false if stopped. This is only if the '--quiet' flag was also
23 given.
24
25 Change the start and stop options not to output or return false if
26 the '--quiet' flag was given.
27
28 Redirect stderr for consolechars in /etc/init.d/consolefont to /dev/null
29 as well, fixing bug #18344.
30
31 Optimize $EDITOR extraction in /etc/profile closing bug #18614, thanks to
32 Aron Griffis <agriffis@gentoo.org>.
33
34 Set HALT to 'shutdown' or 'reboot' depending on if we are shutting down
35 or rebooting.
36

41 24 Mar 2003; Martin Schlemmer <azarah@gentoo.org>:
42
43 Optimize USB fs stuff in /etc/init.d/localmount to use less cats etc.
44 Fix a problem where it might not have mounted the USB fs when usbcore
45 was compiled as module, and the kernel did not mount it by the time
46 the script was started. Get it to rather check what filesystems is
47 supported when deciding if it should use 'usbdevfs' or 'usbfs', as
48 later 2.4 kernels now also support the newer 'usbfs'.
49
50 Optimize RAID stuff in /etc/init.d/checkfs a bit.
51
52 16 Mar 2003; Martin Schlemmer <azarah@gentoo.org>:
