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