5 25 Jan 2002: Martin Schlemmer (azarah@gentoo.org): fixed dircolors
6 in skel files to support both versions of dircolors.
7
8 23 Jan 2002: Martin Schlemmer (azarah@gentoo.org): fixed bug
9 in the restart stuff of /etc/init.d/runscript.sh that caused
10 a restart of a 'net' service not to restart services again
11 that depended on it.
12
13 Change the way /etc/mtab is created in /etc/init.d/checkroot to
14 be more generic.
15
16* rc-scripts 1.2.5 (20 Jan 2002)
17
18 20 Jan 2002: Martin Schlemmer (azarah@gentoo.org): updated
19 /etc/init.d/net.eth0 to 'use' pcmcia.
20
21 8 Jan 2002: Martin Schlemmer (azarah@gentoo.org): added '--sh' to
22 the dircolors command in /etc/skel/.bash_profile to handle cases
23 where bash do not export $SHELL.
24
25 6 Jan 2002: Martin Schlemmer (azarah@gentoo.org): updated
26 /etc/init.d/runscripts.sh, /etc/init.d/net.eth0, /etc/conf.d/net and
27 removed /etc/init.d/net.eth0-dhcp to reflect a new 'bsd-ish' config
28 scheme for the net.eth* scripts.
29
30 6 Jan 2002: Donny Davies (woodchip@gentoo.org): Removed email address
31 from manpages; no need for that..
32
33 5 Jan 2002: Martin Schlemmer (azarah@gentoo.org): fix type-o in
34 /etc/devfsd.conf; had 'dvd' in the cdrw stuff.
35
36* rc-scripts 1.2.4 (30 Dec 2001)
37
38 30 Dec 2001: Daniel Robbins (drobbins@gentoo.org): Changed default umask
39 back to 022 as it should be.
40
41 30 Dec 2001; Martin Schlemmer (azarah@gentoo.org): Updated
42 /etc/init.d/checkfs to return 0 if the fs was successfully repaired.
43
44 29 Dec 2001; Donny Davies (woodchip@gentoo.org):
45 sort -t: -k3,3 -n /etc/passwd,group. Ahhhh :))
46
47 28 Dec 2001; Martin Schlemmer (azarah@gentoo.org); Updated
48 /etc/init.d/depscan.sh to store info about missing dependancies of
49 type 'need' in ${svcdir}/broken. Also updated /etc/init.d/runscript.sh
50 to use this when starting a script ('need' dependancies is critical for
51 startup). Added the broken() function to /etc/init.d/runscript.sh
52 to list the missing dependancies.
53
54 Updated /etc/init.d/runscript.sh for svc_start() to have better error
55 checking.
56
57 Updated /etc/init.d/functions.sh with ewend(), which is the same as
58 eend(), but print a warning on error, not a error. Updated
59 /etc/init.d/checkroot and /etc/init.d/checkfs to use this function.
60
61 27 Dec 2001; Martin Schlemmer (azarah@gentoo.org); Update /sbin/runscript.c
62 to run /etc/init.d/rc-help.sh if no arguments is passed to a rc-script.
63
64 Added /etc/init.d/rc-help.sh, simple script that prints out help for
65 the rc-scripts.
66
67 25 Dec 2001; Martin Schlemmer (azarah@gentoo.org); Update
68 /etc/init.d/shutdown.sh and /etc/init.d/reboot.sh not to force the
69 halt and reboot. This fixes a problem where / was not unmounted
70 properly in some cases.
71
72 24 Dec 2001; Martin Schlemmer (azarah@gentoo.org): Move $svcdir to
73 to /etc/init.d/functions.sh, and update /etc/init.d/runscript.sh and
74 /etc/init.d/depscan.sh for this
75
76 Modified /etc/init.d/runscript.sh to also restart the services that
77 depend on a service if that service is restarted. Enhanced the
78 restart function to be able to have custom restart() functions in
79 rc-scripts. The custom restart() have to use svc_stop() and
80 svc_start() to restart the service.
81
82 Add a pause function to /etc/init.d/runscript.sh. It will basically
83 stop a service without stopping the services that depends on that
84 service.
85
86 Add a pause function to /etc/init.d/runscript.sh. It will basically stop a
87 service without stopping the services that depends on that service.
88
89* rc-scripts 1.2.3 (18 Dec 2001)
90
91 16 Dec 2001; Martin Schlemmer (azarah@gentoo.org): Moved the stuff from
92 /sbin/init (old) to /sbin/rc (basically drop the init wrapper we used).
93
94 Some cleanups: take out the shm resize comment;
95
96 remove the $wrongmount;
97
98 remove the mountshm() function and insert it directly
99 where needed;
100
101 remove the setting of $PATH as /sbin/init already do
102 this for us.
103
104 Added the if statement to detect if it is the first time the 'boot'
105 runlevel is executed (if [ "$RUNLEVEL" = "S" ] && [ "$argv1" = "boot" ]).
106 $RUNLEVEL is a env var set by /sbin/init.
107
108 Also added functionality to detect if the kernel have DEVFS support
109 compiled in; seems new users thinks devfs is unstable and as they do
110 not always read the docs, it does not get compiled in ;/ Should
111 make live for us a bit easier.
112
113 14 Dec 2001; Martin Schlemmer (azarah@gentoo.org): Fixed /sbin/rc to kill
114 a cosmetic bug in the part that stops all the unneeded services.
115
116* rc-scripts 1.2.2 (8 Dec 2001)
117
118 10 Dec 2001; Added a localhost entry in /etc/hosts.
119
120 8 Dec 2001; Donny Davies (woodchip@gentoo.org): Added start-stop-daemon.c
121 to rc-scripts/sbin source. Moved rc-scripts/init.d/runscript.c to
122 rc-scripts/sbin/runscript.c. Added manpage for start-stop-daemon.
123 Start-stop-daemon is moved here from sysvinit by the way. There is stuff
124 in this ChangeLog that needs to be removed! Like the changes to hosts,
125 profile. /etc/{passwd,group} have minor UID and GID type fixes for
126 users ftp, postgres, xfs. Tweaked tarball.sh to not include CVS
127 directories.
128
129 29 Nov 2001; Donny Davies (woodchip@gentoo.org): Added a man directory
130 to rc-scripts. Checked in two manpages there, one for modules.autoload.5
131 and one for update-modules.8. These were adapted from Debian. Updated
132 tarball.sh to include the new man directory. Updated baselayout to install
133 these manpages. Slightly tweak the /etc/modules.autoload comments.
134
135 28 Nov 2001; Martin Schlemmer (azarah@gentoo.org): Updated /sbin/init
136 to work correctly with the 'gentoo=nodevfs' option, and cleaned
137 out old code.
138
139 Updated /etc/init.d/bootmisc with additional lock files to clean.
140
141 27 Nov 2001; Martin Schlemmer (azarah@gentoo.org): Updated
142 /etc/init.d/depscan.sh for a virtual 'use' depend, called 'logger'
143 that can be used for services that needs to have a logger started
144 before they are started. Updated /etc/conf.d/basic with $SYSLOGGER
145 that is used to define what loggers the 'logger' depend represent.
146
147 26 Nov 2001; Martin Schlemmer (azarah@gentoo.org): Updated
148 /etc/passwd and /etc/group with minor fixes to pass pwck and grpck.
149
150 25 Nov 2001; Martin Schlemmer (azarah@gentoo.org): Changed umask in
151 /etc/profile for the user to 077 for security.
152
153 Added a stop() function to /etc/init.d/clock. Also removed uneeded
154 'source /etc/rc.conf' line.
155
156 Updated /etc/init.d/hostname to set the hostname to 'localhost' if
157 /etc/hostname is invalid.
158
159 Updated /sbin/init to move the entries in /lib/dev-state to /dev before
160 running devfsd, as it did still not save settings properly. Also removed
161 old /dev-state/compat stuff.
162
163 25 Nov 2001; ncsd, the name service cache daemon script, has been removed
164 from the default "default" runlevel. It still exists in the archive so that
165 users who want/need it can add it easily.
166
167 25 Nov 2001; Updated the /etc/fstab; removed usbdevfs (explicitly mounted),
168 removed notail from the ext2 boot partition, other cleanups.
169
5 25 Nov 2001; Fixed init.d/clock script to work in UTC mode. 170 25 Nov 2001; Fixed init.d/clock script to work in UTC mode.
6 171
172 24 Nov 2001; Martin Schlemmer (azarah@gentoo.org): Added /etc/devfsd.conf
173 and updated /sbin/init to use a new scheme for saving /dev permissions.
174 Also moved /dev-state to /lib/dev-state which is a more standard location.
175
176 Fixed a ugly bug in /etc/init.d/depscan.sh. If a service depended on
177 itself, calling depscan.sh or changing runlevels cause a tempory effect
178 similar to a 'mini fork bomb'. Afterwards the depends was broken, and
179 changing runlevels did not want to work.
180
181 Updated /etc/init.d/halt.sh to terminate and display message for devfsd.
182 More cosmetic than anything else, but cant hurt with the new dev-state
183 scheme.
184
185 Updated /sbin/init to set the console log level to 1, so that bootup
186 can be much cleaner. Also updated /etc/init.d/modules not to have
187 a logger in it 'use' depends, as it should not be needed anymore.
188
189 Updated /sbin/rc to check if devfsd is still running between runlevel
190 changes.
191
192 Updated /etc/init.d/modules to run update-modules. We want to be sure
193 /etc/modules.conf is updated when running depmod -a.
194
195 Change ftp's uid to 21 in /etc/passwd (was the same as bind). Also
196 added a entry for xfs (X Font Server) in /etc/passwd and /etc/group.
197
198 Added /etc/init.d/net.ppp0, /etc/conf.d/net.ppp0 and
199 /usr/lib/ppp/chat-default as part of my new pppd scripts. Also
200 updated tarball.sh to handle ppp/chat-default.
201
202 Added /etc/skel/.bash* to make things cleaner.
203
204 Other minor changes.
205
