5* rc-scripts 1.2.2 (8 Dec 2001)
6
7 8 Dec 2001; Donny Davies (woodchip@gentoo.org): Added start-stop-daemon.c
8 to rc-scripts/sbin source. Moved rc-scripts/init.d/runscript.c to
9 rc-scripts/sbin/runscript.c. Added manpage for start-stop-daemon.
10 Start-stop-daemon is moved here from sysvinit by the way. There is stuff
11 in this ChangeLog that needs to be removed! Like the changes to hosts,
12 profile. /etc/{passwd,group} have minor UID and GID type fixes for
13 users ftp, postgres, xfs. Tweaked tarball.sh to not include CVS
14 directories.
15
16 29 Nov 2001; Donny Davies (woodchip@gentoo.org): Added a man directory
17 to rc-scripts. Checked in two manpages there, one for modules.autoload.5
18 and one for update-modules.8. These were adapted from Debian. Updated
19 tarball.sh to include the new man directory. Updated baselayout to install
20 these manpages. Slightly tweak the /etc/modules.autoload comments.
21
22 28 Nov 2001; Martin Schlemmer (azarah@gentoo.org): Updated /sbin/init
23 to work correctly with the 'gentoo=nodevfs' option, and cleaned
24 out old code.
25
26 Updated /etc/init.d/bootmisc with additional lock files to clean.
27
28 Updated /etc/init.d/hdparm to check if devfs is used.
29
30 27 Nov 2001; Martin Schlemmer (azarah@gentoo.org): Updated
31 /etc/init.d/depscan.sh for a virtual 'use' depend, called 'logger'
32 that can be used for services that needs to have a logger started
33 before they are started. Updated /etc/conf.d/basic with $SYSLOGGER
34 that is used to define what loggers the 'logger' depend represent.
35 Also updated /etc/init.d/hdparm and /etc/init.d/modules to use
36 this new depend.
37
38 26 Nov 2001; Martin Schlemmer (azarah@gentoo.org): Updated
39 /etc/passwd and /etc/group with minor fixes to pass pwck and grpck.
40
41 25 Nov 2001; Martin Schlemmer (azarah@gentoo.org): Changed umask in
42 /etc/profile for the user to 077 for security.
43
44 Added a localhost line to /etc/hosts after yet another post to gentoo-user.
45 I cant see any problem with this, and since nobody else wants to take the
46 plunge ....
47
48 Added a stop() function to /etc/init.d/clock. Also removed uneeded
49 'source /etc/rc.conf' line.
50
51 Updated /etc/init.d/hostname to set the hostname to 'localhost' if
52 /etc/hostname is invalid.
53
54 Updated /etc/init.d/hdparm to display a [ok] for each drive it optimizes.
55
56 Updated /sbin/init to move the entries in /lib/dev-state to /dev before
57 running devfsd, as it did still not save settings properly. Also removed
58 old /dev-state/compat stuff.
59
60 Removed a stupid bug out of /sbin/init ... /lib/dev-state/* was moved
61 to /dev *before* /dev was mounted.
62
63 Seems the .keep files in /lib/dev-state/pts and /lib/dev-state/shm
64 caused /sbin/init to lock while moving /lib/dev-state/* to /dev. Added
65 the needed fixes to the baselayout ebuild.
66
67 On second thoughts, removed the 'try' out of the code that moves
68 /lib/dev-state/* to /dev, since this is not a critical task, and
69 booting will still continue on failure.
70
71 25 Nov 2001; ncsd, the name service cache daemon script, has been removed
72 from the default "default" runlevel. It still exists in the archive so that
73 users who want/need it can add it easily.
74
75 25 Nov 2001; Updated the /etc/fstab; removed usbdevfs (explicitly mounted),
76 removed notail from the ext2 boot partition, other cleanups.
77
78 25 Nov 2001; Fixed init.d/clock script to work in UTC mode.
79
80 24 Nov 2001; Martin Schlemmer (azarah@gentoo.org): Added /etc/devfsd.conf
81 and updated /sbin/init to use a new scheme for saving /dev permissions.
82 Also moved /dev-state to /lib/dev-state which is a more standard location.
83
84 Added /etc/conf.d and moved rc.conf there as /etc/conf.d/basic. Created
85 /etc/rc.conf again as a blank file .. the website should be updated to
86 say that the user should look in /etc/conf.d/* for stuff to configure.
87
88 Added /etc/init.d/hdparm and /etc/conf.d/hdparm; a script and config
89 file for setting generic optimizations for the disk drives.
90
91 Fixed a ugly bug in /etc/init.d/depscan.sh. If a service depended on
92 itself, calling depscan.sh or changing runlevels cause a tempory effect
93 similar to a 'mini fork bomb'. Afterwards the depends was broken, and
94 changing runlevels did not want to work.
95
96 Updated /etc/init.d/halt.sh to terminate and display message for devfsd.
97 More cosmetic than anything else, but cant hurt with the new dev-state
98 scheme.
99
100 Removed config stuff from /etc/init.d/net.eth0, and moved it to
101 /etc/conf.d/net.eth0. Also added a comment to this effect.
102
103 Removed config stuff from /etc/init.d/net.eth0-dhcp, and moved it to
104 /etc/conf.d/net.eth0-dhcp. Also added a comment to this effect.
105
106 Updated gentoo-src/rc-scripts/rc-lists/default to add /etc/init.d/hdparm
107 to the default runlevel.
108
109 Updated /sbin/init to set the console log level to 1, so that bootup
110 can be much cleaner. Also updated /etc/init.d/modules not to have
111 a logger in it 'use' depends, as it should not be needed anymore.
112
113 Updated /sbin/rc to check if devfsd is still running between runlevel
114 changes.
115
116 Updated /etc/init.d/modules to run update-modules. We want to be sure
117 /etc/modules.conf is updated when running depmod -a.
118
119 Change ftp's uid to 21 in /etc/passwd (was the same as bind). Also
120 added a entry for xfs (X Font Server) in /etc/passwd and /etc/group.
121
122 Added /etc/init.d/net.ppp0, /etc/conf.d/net.ppp0 and
123 /usr/lib/ppp/chat-default as part of my new pppd scripts. Also
124 updated tarball.sh to handle ppp/chat-default.
125
126 Added /etc/skel/.bash* to make things cleaner and set $INPUTRC.
127
128 Minor changes I forgot about.
129
130 17 Nov 2001; Donny Davies (woodchip@gentoo.org): Added /etc/shells file
131 to rc-scripts. Can remove it from sys-libs/shadow at the next release.
