5 25 Dec 2001; Martin Schlemmer (azarah@gentoo.org); Update
6 /etc/init.d/shutdown.sh and /etc/init.d/reboot.sh not to force the
7 halt and reboot. This fixes a problem where / was not unmounted
8 properly in some cases.
9
10 24 Dec 2001; Martin Schlemmer (azarah@gentoo.org): Move $svcdir to
11 to /etc/init.d/functions.sh, and update /etc/init.d/runscript.sh and
12 /etc/init.d/depscan.sh for this
13
14 Modified /etc/init.d/runscript.sh to also restart the services that
15 depend on a service if that service is restarted. Enhanced the
16 restart function to be able to have custom restart() functions in
17 rc-scripts. The custom restart() have to use svc_stop() and
18 svc_start() to restart the service.
19
20 Add a pause function to /etc/init.d/runscript.sh. It will basically
21 stop a service without stopping the services that depends on that
22 service.
23
24* rc-scripts 1.2.3 (18 Dec 2001)
25
26 16 Dec 2001; Martin Schlemmer (azarah@gentoo.org): Moved the stuff from
27 /sbin/init (old) to /sbin/rc (basically drop the init wrapper we used).
28
29 Some cleanups: take out the shm resize comment;
30
31 remove the $wrongmount;
32
33 remove the mountshm() function and insert it directly
34 where needed;
35
36 remove the setting of $PATH as /sbin/init already do
37 this for us.
38
39 Added the if statement to detect if it is the first time the 'boot'
40 runlevel is executed (if [ "$RUNLEVEL" = "S" ] && [ "$argv1" = "boot" ]).
41 $RUNLEVEL is a env var set by /sbin/init.
42
43 Also added functionality to detect if the kernel have DEVFS support
44 compiled in; seems new users thinks devfs is unstable and as they do
45 not always read the docs, it does not get compiled in ;/ Should
46 make live for us a bit easier.
47
48 14 Dec 2001; Martin Schlemmer (azarah@gentoo.org): Fixed /sbin/rc to kill
49 a cosmetic bug in the part that stops all the unneeded services.
50
51* rc-scripts 1.2.2 (8 Dec 2001)
52
53 10 Dec 2001; Added a localhost entry in /etc/hosts.
54
55 8 Dec 2001; Donny Davies (woodchip@gentoo.org): Added start-stop-daemon.c
56 to rc-scripts/sbin source. Moved rc-scripts/init.d/runscript.c to
57 rc-scripts/sbin/runscript.c. Added manpage for start-stop-daemon.
58 Start-stop-daemon is moved here from sysvinit by the way. There is stuff
59 in this ChangeLog that needs to be removed! Like the changes to hosts,
60 profile. /etc/{passwd,group} have minor UID and GID type fixes for
61 users ftp, postgres, xfs. Tweaked tarball.sh to not include CVS
62 directories.
63
64 29 Nov 2001; Donny Davies (woodchip@gentoo.org): Added a man directory
65 to rc-scripts. Checked in two manpages there, one for modules.autoload.5
66 and one for update-modules.8. These were adapted from Debian. Updated
67 tarball.sh to include the new man directory. Updated baselayout to install
68 these manpages. Slightly tweak the /etc/modules.autoload comments.
69
70 28 Nov 2001; Martin Schlemmer (azarah@gentoo.org): Updated /sbin/init
71 to work correctly with the 'gentoo=nodevfs' option, and cleaned
72 out old code.
73
74 Updated /etc/init.d/bootmisc with additional lock files to clean.
75
76 27 Nov 2001; Martin Schlemmer (azarah@gentoo.org): Updated
77 /etc/init.d/depscan.sh for a virtual 'use' depend, called 'logger'
78 that can be used for services that needs to have a logger started
79 before they are started. Updated /etc/conf.d/basic with $SYSLOGGER
80 that is used to define what loggers the 'logger' depend represent.
81
82 26 Nov 2001; Martin Schlemmer (azarah@gentoo.org): Updated
83 /etc/passwd and /etc/group with minor fixes to pass pwck and grpck.
84
85 25 Nov 2001; Martin Schlemmer (azarah@gentoo.org): Changed umask in
86 /etc/profile for the user to 077 for security.
87
88 Added a stop() function to /etc/init.d/clock. Also removed uneeded
89 'source /etc/rc.conf' line.
90
91 Updated /etc/init.d/hostname to set the hostname to 'localhost' if
92 /etc/hostname is invalid.
93
94 Updated /sbin/init to move the entries in /lib/dev-state to /dev before
95 running devfsd, as it did still not save settings properly. Also removed
96 old /dev-state/compat stuff.
97
98 25 Nov 2001; ncsd, the name service cache daemon script, has been removed
99 from the default "default" runlevel. It still exists in the archive so that
100 users who want/need it can add it easily.
101
102 25 Nov 2001; Updated the /etc/fstab; removed usbdevfs (explicitly mounted),
103 removed notail from the ext2 boot partition, other cleanups.
104
5 25 Nov 2001; Fixed init.d/clock script to work in UTC mode. 105 25 Nov 2001; Fixed init.d/clock script to work in UTC mode.
6 106
107 24 Nov 2001; Martin Schlemmer (azarah@gentoo.org): Added /etc/devfsd.conf
108 and updated /sbin/init to use a new scheme for saving /dev permissions.
109 Also moved /dev-state to /lib/dev-state which is a more standard location.
110
111 Fixed a ugly bug in /etc/init.d/depscan.sh. If a service depended on
112 itself, calling depscan.sh or changing runlevels cause a tempory effect
113 similar to a 'mini fork bomb'. Afterwards the depends was broken, and
114 changing runlevels did not want to work.
115
116 Updated /etc/init.d/halt.sh to terminate and display message for devfsd.
117 More cosmetic than anything else, but cant hurt with the new dev-state
118 scheme.
119
120 Updated /sbin/init to set the console log level to 1, so that bootup
121 can be much cleaner. Also updated /etc/init.d/modules not to have
122 a logger in it 'use' depends, as it should not be needed anymore.
123
124 Updated /sbin/rc to check if devfsd is still running between runlevel
125 changes.
126
127 Updated /etc/init.d/modules to run update-modules. We want to be sure
128 /etc/modules.conf is updated when running depmod -a.
129
130 Change ftp's uid to 21 in /etc/passwd (was the same as bind). Also
131 added a entry for xfs (X Font Server) in /etc/passwd and /etc/group.
132
133 Added /etc/init.d/net.ppp0, /etc/conf.d/net.ppp0 and
134 /usr/lib/ppp/chat-default as part of my new pppd scripts. Also
135 updated tarball.sh to handle ppp/chat-default.
136
137 Added /etc/skel/.bash* to make things cleaner.
138
139 Other minor changes.
