5* rc-scripts 1.4.3.8p1 (21 May 2003)
6
7 21 May 2003; Martin Schlemmer <azarah@gentoo.org>:
8
9 Last fix I did not use the modified 'myservice', but used $1 again,
10 causing the network dependencies to bork. I did not notice this
11 as I have net.eth0 in default runlevel.
12
13* rc-scripts 1.4.3.8 (20 May 2003)
14
15 20 May 2003; Martin Schlemmer <azarah@gentoo.org>:
16
17 A '-' in a bash variable is not valid as well. Fix gendepend.awk and
18 rc-service.sh to handle this, thanks to YAMAKURA Makoto
19 <makoto@dsb.club.ne.jp>.
20
21 Move /etc/issue to /etc/issue.logo, and have /etc/issue only print info
22 about the host it is running on.
23
24 18 May 2003; Martin Schlemmer <azarah@gentoo.org>:
25
26 Do not let devfsd handle /dev/log's permission management, as it breaks
27 selinux. Modified /etc/devfsd.conf, changes submited by Chris PeBenito
28 <pebenito@gentoo.org>.
29
30 Fix type-o in /etc/init.d/net.ppp0, and add local ip-up/ip-down support.
31
32 14 May 2003; Martin Schlemmer <azarah@gentoo.org>:
33
34 We should not export the RC_GOT_* variables, as it breaks on some systems,
35 thanks to J?rg Gollnick <gentoo-bugs@wurzelbenutzer.de>, bug #20851.
36
37 From C. Brewer <killian@gentoo.org>:
38 - Add hide-password to the connect cmd-line of /etc/init.d/net.ppp0, which is
39 suppose to be default, but why take chances?
40 - Also, echoing chmod 640 in the resolv.conf two-step at the end to solve the
41 kppp complaint.
42
43 13 May 2003; Martin Schlemmer <azarah@gentoo.org>:
44
45 For the network functions, the dependency code tried to create a funcion
46 with a '.' in the name, causing the network rc-scripts to not have any
47 dependencies. This should fix bug #20849 's order issue, thanks to
48 YAMAKURA Makoto <makoto@dsb.club.ne.jp> for noticing.
49
50 Fix query_{before,after} to also check 'net' if 'service2' is a network
51 service.
52
53 12 May 2003; Martin Schlemmer <azarah@gentoo.org>:
54
55 More cleanups:
56 - Move the broken stuff from symlinks to a DB entry in ${svcdir}/deptree.
57 Updated /sbin/runscript.sh, /sbin/rc-services.sh and gendepend.awk for
58 this.
59 - Add functions for more common tasks in /sbin/runscript.sh to
60 /sbin/rc-services.sh.
61 - Move 'consoletype' to /sbin.
62 - Rename /sbin/rc-envupdate.sh to /sbin/env-update.sh; updated
63 /etc/init.d/bootmisc for this.
64 - Move rc-services.sh, rc-daemon.sh and rc-help.sh to /lib/rcscripts/sh.
65 - Improve detection of circular depends ... modified gendepend.awk for this.
66
67* rc-scripts 1.4.3.7 (11 May 2003)
68
69 11 May 2003; Martin Schlemmer <azarah@gentoo.org>:
70
71 Too many things to remember, so here is changes of note:
72 - More changes to gendepend.awk. This basically modifies it to not use
73 symlinks in $svcdir/{need,use,before,after,provide} anymore, but rather
74 create a file that can be sourced. Seems to speedup things nicely.
75 - Add /sbin/rc-services.sh. This is basically a module to get dependency
76 info from the new $svcdir/deptree, and some other new service functions.
77 - Modify the whole works to *only* source all needed files once. This
78 includes /sbin/{functions.sh,rc-services.sh,rc-daemon.sh}. Also
79 rc-services.sh will only source $svcdir/deptree once. /sbin/runscript.sh
80 is sourced more than once (actually each time a service is started or
81 stopped, but is is cut down much). Also seems to speed things up again.
82 - Fix a long outstanding bug in gendepend.awk that caused the 'net'
83 dependency to not be actually used in shutdown, causing the services
84 needing it to be stoped before net.* services.
85 - Add the RC_PARALLEL_STARTUP variable, with schedule_service_startup() to
86 /sbin/rc-services.sh and /etc/conf.d/rc. This is experimental parallel
87 startup of services, and seems to work nicely. Only issues to date is
88 that printing of messages is not synced, and a race very intermittantly
89 that causes a service to be started when it was already scheduled.
90 - Add a new dependency type 'parallel' that can be used to control if a
91 service can be started in paralled or not. Possible arguments is "yes"
92 or "no"; if it is not present, it is considered as "yes":
93
94 depend() {
95 parallel yes|no
96 }
97
98 Modified cachedepend.awk, gendepend.awk and /sbin/rc-services.sh.
99 - Fix the 'single' runlevel to actually work properly, and without a
100 /etc/runlevels/single directory.
101 - Remove the BOOT variable, and update /sbin/rc to set SOFTLEVEL properly.
102 Fix /etc/init.d/{checkroot,bootmisc} to use SOFTLEVEL instead of BOOT.
103
104 08 May 2003; Martin Schlemmer <azarah@gentoo.org>:
105
106 Major rework of /lib/rcscript/awk/gendepend.awk, cleaning it up nicely,
107 and adding more sanity checks.
108
109 04 May 2003; Martin Schlemmer <azarah@gentoo.org>:
110
111 Revert /etc/init.d/hostname the way it was, as it should be the user's
112 choice if he want to have a FQDN in there or not, bug #14946.
113
114 Add /etc/init.d/domainname for those that want to use it.
115
116 29 Apr 2003; Martin Schlemmer <azarah@gentoo.org>:
117
118 Change the root check back the way it was, else it breaks with non bash
119 shells; modified /etc/profile.
120
121 29 Apr 2003; Martin Schlemmer <azarah@gentoo.org>:
122
123 Change test in /etc/profile for root to '[ "$EUID" -eq 0 ]', bug #20140.
124
125 27 Apr 2003; Martin Schlemmer <azarah@gentoo.org>:
126
127 Add various patches from Rachel Holmes <rach@gmx.net>:
128
129 Dropped use of 'cat' in bash scripts, '$(<$file)' is there for that
130 purpose. Modified:
131
132 /etc/init.d/net.ppp0
133 /etc/init.d/nscd
134 /sbin/functions.sh
135 /sbin/rc
136 /sbin/rc-daemon.sh
137 /sbin/rc-envupdate.sh.bash
138 /sbin/runscript.sh
139
140 Exchanged some gratuitous use of awk for grep. Awk is a little resource
141 hungry just for a simple test. (I [azarah] did not apply the changes to
142 tests for 'devfs', as having 'usbdevfs' in the equation will break
143 things). Modified /sbin/rc for this.
144
145 Gentoo enforces having /proc, so uname -r is a little redundant when the
146 information is available without an external command. Modified:
147
148 /etc/init.d/modules
149 /etc/init.d/serial
150 /sbin/functions.sh
151 /sbin/modules-update
152
153 Changed 'id -u' commands to use $EUID in bash executed scripts, same
154 result no extra command. Modified:
155
156 /sbin/rc-envupdate.sh
157 /sbin/rc-envupdate.sh.bash
158 /sbin/rc-update
159
160 Removed all the cat sections, and the separate echo sections. The output
161 is _exactly_ the same, minus some spare spaces that have been removed.
162 Fourfold speed increase in the (granted flimsy) tests I have done.
163 Modified /sbin/rc-help.sh for this.
164
165 Final remaining 'cat' commands removed, in favour of using bash's internal
166 '$(< )' or 'echo'. Use of echo leads the way to future support for bash's
167 i18n anyway. Modified:
168
169 /sbin/rc
170 /sbin/rc-envupdate.sh
171 /sbin/rc-envupdate.sh.bash
172
173
174
175* rc-scripts 1.4.3.6 (27 Apr 2003)
176
177 27 Apr 2003; Martin Schlemmer <azarah@gentoo.org>:
178
179 Add a 'save' function /etc/init.d/clock, bug #19685.
180
181 Add a slocate group to /etc/group, bug #19604.
182
183 Do not stop a network service if we do not reboot on runlevel change,
184 as it could have been started by the user or hotplug. This should
185 address bug #12763; modified /sbin/rc for this.
186
187 Fix /etc/init.d/hostname to set only the hostname, and not the NIS
188 domainname.
189
190 Fix /etc/init.d/keymaps to be able to set the extended keymap in rc.conf.
191 This should close bug #16884.
192
193 Fix /etc/profile to be /bin/sh compadible, bug #18918.
194
195 Change the swap comments in /sbin/rc to "Activating (possible) swap" to
196 be more 'generic' ? Only try to disable swap if any devices/files was
197 activated. This should close bug #19089.
198
199 Fix /etc/init.d/checkroot to only remount / rw if not set explicitly to
200 rw in /etc/fstab, bug #19158.
201
202 24 Apr 2003; Martin Schlemmer <azarah@gentoo.org>:
203
204 Fix /etc/init.d/net.ppp0 to do the right thing if stopped was called,
205 but the ppp link was already down, bug #15333.
206
207 12 Apr 2003; Martin Schlemmer <azarah@gentoo.org>:
208
209 Fix type-o in /etc/init.d/consolefont (line 38 should be 'retval=$?').
210 Thanks to Matt Taylor <liverbugg@juno.com> (comment #6, bug #18344).
211
212 From linux-2.5.68, we need to mount devpts on /dev/pts again ...
213 updated /sbin/rc for this.
214
215 11 Apr 2003; Martin Schlemmer <azarah@gentoo.org>:
216
217 Fix errors on sourcing /etc/profile if EDITOR is not set, bug #18995.
218
219 10 Apr 2003; Martin Schlemmer <azarah@gentoo.org>:
220
221 Make checking in unmount more strict, fixing bug #19007.
222
223 09 Apr 2003; Martin Schlemmer <azarah@gentoo.org>:
224
225 Add one more check to genenviron.awk, to spot cases where there is a
226 space between the variable and the '='.
227
228 08 Apr 2003; Martin Schlemmer <azarah@gentoo.org>:
229
230 Fix interactive shell not to have coloured prompt when used as a
231 dumb client, bug #18886. Fix was inspired by patch from
232 Matthew Kennedy <mkennedy@gentoo.org>.
