5 15 Feb 2002: Martin Schlemmer (azarah@gentoo.org): update
6 /etc/profile to resolve bug #588.
7
8 13 Feb 2002: Martin Schlemmer (azarah@gentoo.org): add some more
9 entries to /etc/devfsd.conf to make alsa users life easier ...
10 thanks Tod.
11
12 12 Feb 2002: Martin Schlemmer (azarah@gentoo.org): Some more
13 cleanups to /etc/init.d/depscan.sh and /etc/init.d/runscript.sh.
14
15 Fixed some services not starting again when restarting a service.
16 Seems simple is still the best way.
17
18 Fixed some other problems created with feature additions and cleanups.
19
20 11 Feb 2002: Martin Schlemmer (azarah@gentoo.org): General cleanups
21 to /etc/init.d/depscan.sh and /etc/init.d/runscript.sh.
22
23 Added 'before *' to /etc/init.d/checkroot to make sure it gets
24 started first.
25
26 Added 'use *' to /etc/init.d/local to make sure it gets started
27 last.
28
29 10 Feb 2002: Martin Schlemmer (azarah@gentoo.org): Fixed /sbin/rc
30 to stop a service on change of runlevel if it is in 'use' by
31 another service.
32
33 Added the 'provide' depend type for creating virtual services.
34 Updated /etc/init.d/depscan.sh for this.
35
36 Added the 'before' depend type. This is more for changing the
37 order services start in. Updated /etc/init.d/depscan.sh and
38 /etc/init.d/functions.sh for this.
39
40 Updated /etc/init.d/depscan.sh to work with '*' as argument for
41 dependancy types. This can be used with 'use' and 'before' to
42 start a script last or first respectively.
43
44 Added save_options() and get_options() to /etc/init.d/functions.sh
45 for saving misc settings between startup/shutdown. Updated
46 /etc/init.d/net.eth0 to use these and properly down virtual
47 interfaces.
48
49 6 Feb 2002: Martin Schlemmer (azarah@gentoo.org): updated both
50 /etc/init.d/bootmisc and /etc/init.d/keymaps to be quiet on no
51 errors.
52
53* rc-scripts 1.2.6 (6 Feb 2002)
54
55 2 Feb 2002: Martin Schlemmer (azarah@gentoo.org): updated /etc/net.eth0
56 to specify the gateway device via the $gateway variable (something like
57 gateway="eth0/192.168.0.1").
58
59 2 Feb 2002: Martin Schlemmer (azarah@gentoo.org): added rc-script
60 /etc/init.d/numlock, for enabling numlock at boot.
61
62 29 Jan 2002: Martin Schlemmer (azarah@gentoo.org): hopefully the
63 last fix to /etc/init.d/netmount to umount cleanly. This fix
64 implements a retry if not successful the first time, and will
65 kill processess using the mount. Also small type-o fix to
66 /etc/init.d/halt.sh.
67
68 27 Jan 2002: Donny Davies (woodchip@gentoo.org): security fix to
69 /etc/pam.d/sshd,login,chsh: added pam_shells.so to the stack.
70 Fixed /etc/passwd,group for user/group mysql.
71
72 27 Jan 2002: Martin Schlemmer (azarah@gentoo.org): added charset
73 map file support to /etc/init.d/consolefont and the setting to
74 /etc/rc.conf.
75
76 25 Jan 2002: Martin Schlemmer (azarah@gentoo.org): fixed dircolors
77 in skel files to support both versions of dircolors.
78
79 23 Jan 2002: Martin Schlemmer (azarah@gentoo.org): fixed bug
80 in the restart stuff of /etc/init.d/runscript.sh that caused
81 a restart of a 'net' service not to restart services again
82 that depended on it.
83
84* rc-scripts 1.2.5 (20 Jan 2002)
85
86 20 Jan 2002: Martin Schlemmer (azarah@gentoo.org): updated
87 /etc/init.d/net.eth0 to 'use' pcmcia.
88
89 8 Jan 2002: Martin Schlemmer (azarah@gentoo.org): added '--sh' to
90 the dircolors command in /etc/skel/.bash_profile to handle cases
91 where bash do not export $SHELL.
92
93 6 Jan 2002: Martin Schlemmer (azarah@gentoo.org): updated
94 /etc/init.d/runscripts.sh, /etc/init.d/net.eth0, /etc/conf.d/net and
95 removed /etc/init.d/net.eth0-dhcp to reflect a new 'bsd-ish' config
96 scheme for the net.eth* scripts.
97
98 6 Jan 2002: Donny Davies (woodchip@gentoo.org): Removed email address
99 from manpages; no need for that..
100
101 5 Jan 2002: Martin Schlemmer (azarah@gentoo.org): fix type-o in
102 /etc/devfsd.conf; had 'dvd' in the cdrw stuff.
103
104* rc-scripts 1.2.4 (30 Dec 2001)
105
106 30 Dec 2001: Daniel Robbins (drobbins@gentoo.org): Changed default umask
107 back to 022 as it should be.
108
109 30 Dec 2001; Martin Schlemmer (azarah@gentoo.org): Updated
110 /etc/init.d/checkfs to return 0 if the fs was successfully repaired.
111
112 29 Dec 2001; Donny Davies (woodchip@gentoo.org):
113 sort -t: -k3,3 -n /etc/passwd,group. Ahhhh :))
114
115 28 Dec 2001; Martin Schlemmer (azarah@gentoo.org); Updated
116 /etc/init.d/depscan.sh to store info about missing dependancies of
117 type 'need' in ${svcdir}/broken. Also updated /etc/init.d/runscript.sh
118 to use this when starting a script ('need' dependancies is critical for
119 startup). Added the broken() function to /etc/init.d/runscript.sh
120 to list the missing dependancies.
121
122 Updated /etc/init.d/runscript.sh for svc_start() to have better error
123 checking.
124
125 Updated /etc/init.d/functions.sh with ewend(), which is the same as
126 eend(), but print a warning on error, not a error. Updated
127 /etc/init.d/checkroot and /etc/init.d/checkfs to use this function.
128
129 27 Dec 2001; Martin Schlemmer (azarah@gentoo.org); Update /sbin/runscript.c
130 to run /etc/init.d/rc-help.sh if no arguments is passed to a rc-script.
131
132 Added /etc/init.d/rc-help.sh, simple script that prints out help for
133 the rc-scripts.
134
135 25 Dec 2001; Martin Schlemmer (azarah@gentoo.org); Update
136 /etc/init.d/shutdown.sh and /etc/init.d/reboot.sh not to force the
137 halt and reboot. This fixes a problem where / was not unmounted
138 properly in some cases.
139
140 24 Dec 2001; Martin Schlemmer (azarah@gentoo.org): Move $svcdir to
141 to /etc/init.d/functions.sh, and update /etc/init.d/runscript.sh and
142 /etc/init.d/depscan.sh for this
143
144 Modified /etc/init.d/runscript.sh to also restart the services that
145 depend on a service if that service is restarted. Enhanced the
146 restart function to be able to have custom restart() functions in
147 rc-scripts. The custom restart() have to use svc_stop() and
148 svc_start() to restart the service.
149
150 Add a pause function to /etc/init.d/runscript.sh. It will basically
151 stop a service without stopping the services that depends on that
152 service.
153
154 Add a pause function to /etc/init.d/runscript.sh. It will basically stop a
155 service without stopping the services that depends on that service.
156
157* rc-scripts 1.2.3 (18 Dec 2001)
158
159 16 Dec 2001; Martin Schlemmer (azarah@gentoo.org): Moved the stuff from
160 /sbin/init (old) to /sbin/rc (basically drop the init wrapper we used).
161
162 Some cleanups: take out the shm resize comment;
163
164 remove the $wrongmount;
165
166 remove the mountshm() function and insert it directly
167 where needed;
168
169 remove the setting of $PATH as /sbin/init already do
170 this for us.
171
172 Added the if statement to detect if it is the first time the 'boot'
173 runlevel is executed (if [ "$RUNLEVEL" = "S" ] && [ "$argv1" = "boot" ]).
174 $RUNLEVEL is a env var set by /sbin/init.
175
176 Also added functionality to detect if the kernel have DEVFS support
177 compiled in; seems new users thinks devfs is unstable and as they do
178 not always read the docs, it does not get compiled in ;/ Should
179 make live for us a bit easier.
180
181 14 Dec 2001; Martin Schlemmer (azarah@gentoo.org): Fixed /sbin/rc to kill
182 a cosmetic bug in the part that stops all the unneeded services.
183
184* rc-scripts 1.2.2 (8 Dec 2001)
185
186 10 Dec 2001; Added a localhost entry in /etc/hosts.
187
188 8 Dec 2001; Donny Davies (woodchip@gentoo.org): Added start-stop-daemon.c
189 to rc-scripts/sbin source. Moved rc-scripts/init.d/runscript.c to
190 rc-scripts/sbin/runscript.c. Added manpage for start-stop-daemon.
191 Start-stop-daemon is moved here from sysvinit by the way. There is stuff
192 in this ChangeLog that needs to be removed! Like the changes to hosts,
193 profile. /etc/{passwd,group} have minor UID and GID type fixes for
194 users ftp, postgres, xfs. Tweaked tarball.sh to not include CVS
195 directories.
196
197 29 Nov 2001; Donny Davies (woodchip@gentoo.org): Added a man directory
198 to rc-scripts. Checked in two manpages there, one for modules.autoload.5
199 and one for update-modules.8. These were adapted from Debian. Updated
200 tarball.sh to include the new man directory. Updated baselayout to install
201 these manpages. Slightly tweak the /etc/modules.autoload comments.
202
203 28 Nov 2001; Martin Schlemmer (azarah@gentoo.org): Updated /sbin/init
204 to work correctly with the 'gentoo=nodevfs' option, and cleaned
205 out old code.
206
207 Updated /etc/init.d/bootmisc with additional lock files to clean.
208
209 27 Nov 2001; Martin Schlemmer (azarah@gentoo.org): Updated
210 /etc/init.d/depscan.sh for a virtual 'use' depend, called 'logger'
211 that can be used for services that needs to have a logger started
212 before they are started. Updated /etc/conf.d/basic with $SYSLOGGER
213 that is used to define what loggers the 'logger' depend represent.
214
215 26 Nov 2001; Martin Schlemmer (azarah@gentoo.org): Updated
216 /etc/passwd and /etc/group with minor fixes to pass pwck and grpck.
217
218 25 Nov 2001; Martin Schlemmer (azarah@gentoo.org): Changed umask in
219 /etc/profile for the user to 077 for security.
220
221 Added a stop() function to /etc/init.d/clock. Also removed uneeded
222 'source /etc/rc.conf' line.
223
224 Updated /etc/init.d/hostname to set the hostname to 'localhost' if
225 /etc/hostname is invalid.
226
227 Updated /sbin/init to move the entries in /lib/dev-state to /dev before
228 running devfsd, as it did still not save settings properly. Also removed
229 old /dev-state/compat stuff.
230
5 25 Nov 2001; ncsd, the name service cache daemon script, has been removed 231 25 Nov 2001; ncsd, the name service cache daemon script, has been removed
6 from the default "default" runlevel. It still exists in the archive so that 232 from the default "default" runlevel. It still exists in the archive so that
7 users who want/need it can add it easily. 233 users who want/need it can add it easily.
8 234
9 25 Nov 2001; Updated the /etc/fstab; removed usbdevfs (explicitly mounted), 235 25 Nov 2001; Updated the /etc/fstab; removed usbdevfs (explicitly mounted),
10 removed notail from the ext2 boot partition, other cleanups. 236 removed notail from the ext2 boot partition, other cleanups.
11 237
12 25 Nov 2001; Fixed init.d/clock script to work in UTC mode. 238 25 Nov 2001; Fixed init.d/clock script to work in UTC mode.
13 239
240 24 Nov 2001; Martin Schlemmer (azarah@gentoo.org): Added /etc/devfsd.conf
241 and updated /sbin/init to use a new scheme for saving /dev permissions.
242 Also moved /dev-state to /lib/dev-state which is a more standard location.
243
244 Fixed a ugly bug in /etc/init.d/depscan.sh. If a service depended on
245 itself, calling depscan.sh or changing runlevels cause a tempory effect
246 similar to a 'mini fork bomb'. Afterwards the depends was broken, and
247 changing runlevels did not want to work.
248
249 Updated /etc/init.d/halt.sh to terminate and display message for devfsd.
250 More cosmetic than anything else, but cant hurt with the new dev-state
251 scheme.
252
253 Updated /sbin/init to set the console log level to 1, so that bootup
254 can be much cleaner. Also updated /etc/init.d/modules not to have
255 a logger in it 'use' depends, as it should not be needed anymore.
256
257 Updated /sbin/rc to check if devfsd is still running between runlevel
258 changes.
259
260 Updated /etc/init.d/modules to run update-modules. We want to be sure
261 /etc/modules.conf is updated when running depmod -a.
262
263 Change ftp's uid to 21 in /etc/passwd (was the same as bind). Also
264 added a entry for xfs (X Font Server) in /etc/passwd and /etc/group.
265
266 Added /etc/init.d/net.ppp0, /etc/conf.d/net.ppp0 and
267 /usr/lib/ppp/chat-default as part of my new pppd scripts. Also
268 updated tarball.sh to handle ppp/chat-default.
269
270 Added /etc/skel/.bash* to make things cleaner.
271
272 Other minor changes.
273
14 17 Nov 2001; Donny Davies (woodchip@gentoo.org): Added /etc/shells file 274 17 Nov 2001; Donny Davies (woodchip@gentoo.org): Added /etc/shells file
15 to rc-scripts. Can remove it from sys-libs/shadow at the next release. 275 to rc-scripts. Can remove it from sys-libs/shadow at the next release.

37 should solve Woodchip's syslog+glue issue. We just have to change the 297 should solve Woodchip's syslog+glue issue. We just have to change the
38 console loglevel for metalog and syslog-ng (sysklogd already updated) not to 298 console loglevel for metalog and syslog-ng (sysklogd already updated) not to
39 output info and warnings, etc to the console, then boot will be much cleaner. 299 output info and warnings, etc to the console, then boot will be much cleaner.
40 Also the install guide will need changing to add the loggers to 'boot' and 300 Also the install guide will need changing to add the loggers to 'boot' and

47 init.d/runscript.sh, init.d/depscan.sh and sbin/rc with a new depend called 307 init.d/runscript.sh, init.d/depscan.sh and sbin/rc with a new depend called
