5 28 Feb 2002; Martin Schlemmer <azarah@gentoo.org>: add /etc/conf.d/local.start
6 and /etc/conf.d/local.stop for adding any misc programs to startup. This
7 should pretty much have /etc/init.d/ static, except for baselayout updates,
8 etc.
9
10 27 Feb 2002; Martin Schlemmer <azarah@gentoo.org>: in some wierd cases,
11 a redundent /dev/.devfsd on a unmounted /dev can cause problems. Fixed
12 this in /sbin/rc.
13
14 Added the patches from Grant Goodyear (aka g2boojum) to enable us to
15 use a ramdisk to store the contents of ${svcdir}. Updated /sbin/rc,
16 /etc/init.d/functions.sh and /etc/init.d/checkroot for this.
17
18 26 Feb 2002; Martin Schlemmer <azarah@gentoo.org>: fix my brain dead
19 update of the 25th. It really should keep "gentoo=nodevfs" in mind.
20 Also added 'get_bootparam()' to help in retrieving kernel options.
21 Updated /etc/init.d/functions.sh, /etc/init.d/checkroot and /sbin/rc
22 for this.
23
24 Updated /etc/init.d/consolefont to work without devfs as well.
25
26 When rebooting or shutting down, a service should not fail to stop
27 if a service it depends on, fails. Updated /etc/init.d/runscript.sh
28 for this.
29
30 25 Feb 2002; Martin Schlemmer <azarah@gentoo.org>: added a check if
31 /dev is mounted when creating entries for /etc/mtab. This should solve a
32 invalid entry or /dev being mounted even with 'gentoo=nodevfs' option.
33 Updated /etc/init.d/checkroot for this.
34
35 17 Feb 2002: Daniel Robbins <drobbins@gentoo.org>: Made "xfs" the default
36 filesystem in /etc/fstab (from ReiserFS) and removed "notail" option (it's
37 just in a comment now)
38
39 17 Feb 2002: Martin Schlemmer (azarah@gentoo.org): more fixes to 'after' and
40 'before', updated /etc/init.d/runscript.sh for this. This should fix
41 services not getting started in the correct order in a tight loop, services
42 getting stopped out of order, and some other sanity checks. Updated
43 rc-script.sh for updated help.
44
45 15 Feb 2002: Martin Schlemmer (azarah@gentoo.org): update /etc/profile to
46 resolve bug #588. Reimplemented things a bit, and added the 'after' type.
47 'before' and 'after' will only work currently for a change of runlevel.
48 Updated /etc/init.d/depscan.sh, /etc/init.d/runscript.sh and /sbin/rc for it.
49
50 13 Feb 2002: Martin Schlemmer (azarah@gentoo.org): add some more entries to
51 /etc/devfsd.conf to make alsa users life easier ... thanks Tod.
52
53 12 Feb 2002: Martin Schlemmer (azarah@gentoo.org): Some more cleanups to
54 /etc/init.d/depscan.sh and /etc/init.d/runscript.sh.
55
56 Fixed some services not starting again when restarting a service.
57 Seems simple is still the best way.
58
59 Fixed some other problems created with feature additions and cleanups.
60
61 11 Feb 2002: Martin Schlemmer (azarah@gentoo.org): General cleanups to
62 /etc/init.d/depscan.sh and /etc/init.d/runscript.sh.
63
64 Added 'before *' to /etc/init.d/checkroot to make sure it gets
65 started first.
66
67 Added 'use *' to /etc/init.d/local to make sure it gets started
68 last.
69
70 10 Feb 2002: Martin Schlemmer (azarah@gentoo.org): Fixed /sbin/rc
71 to stop a service on change of runlevel if it is in 'use' by
72 another service.
73
74 Added the 'provide' depend type for creating virtual services.
75 Updated /etc/init.d/depscan.sh for this.
76
77 Added the 'before' depend type. This is more for changing the
78 order services start in. Updated /etc/init.d/depscan.sh and
79 /etc/init.d/functions.sh for this.
80
81 Updated /etc/init.d/depscan.sh to work with '*' as argument for
82 dependancy types. This can be used with 'use' and 'before' to
83 start a script last or first respectively.
84
85 Added save_options() and get_options() to /etc/init.d/functions.sh
86 for saving misc settings between startup/shutdown. Updated
87 /etc/init.d/net.eth0 to use these and properly down virtual
88 interfaces.
89
90 6 Feb 2002: Martin Schlemmer (azarah@gentoo.org): updated both
91 /etc/init.d/bootmisc and /etc/init.d/keymaps to be quiet on no
92 errors.
93
94* rc-scripts 1.2.6 (6 Feb 2002)
95
96 2 Feb 2002: Martin Schlemmer (azarah@gentoo.org): updated /etc/net.eth0
97 to specify the gateway device via the $gateway variable (something like
98 gateway="eth0/192.168.0.1").
99
100 2 Feb 2002: Martin Schlemmer (azarah@gentoo.org): added rc-script
101 /etc/init.d/numlock, for enabling numlock at boot.
102
103 29 Jan 2002: Martin Schlemmer (azarah@gentoo.org): hopefully the
104 last fix to /etc/init.d/netmount to umount cleanly. This fix
105 implements a retry if not successful the first time, and will
106 kill processess using the mount. Also small type-o fix to
107 /etc/init.d/halt.sh.
108
109 27 Jan 2002: Donny Davies (woodchip@gentoo.org): security fix to
110 /etc/pam.d/sshd,login,chsh: added pam_shells.so to the stack.
111 Fixed /etc/passwd,group for user/group mysql.
112
113 27 Jan 2002: Martin Schlemmer (azarah@gentoo.org): added charset
114 map file support to /etc/init.d/consolefont and the setting to
115 /etc/rc.conf.
116
117 25 Jan 2002: Martin Schlemmer (azarah@gentoo.org): fixed dircolors
118 in skel files to support both versions of dircolors.
119
120 23 Jan 2002: Martin Schlemmer (azarah@gentoo.org): fixed bug
121 in the restart stuff of /etc/init.d/runscript.sh that caused
122 a restart of a 'net' service not to restart services again
123 that depended on it.
124
125* rc-scripts 1.2.5 (20 Jan 2002)
126
127 20 Jan 2002: Martin Schlemmer (azarah@gentoo.org): updated
128 /etc/init.d/net.eth0 to 'use' pcmcia.
129
130 8 Jan 2002: Martin Schlemmer (azarah@gentoo.org): added '--sh' to
131 the dircolors command in /etc/skel/.bash_profile to handle cases
132 where bash do not export $SHELL.
133
134 6 Jan 2002: Martin Schlemmer (azarah@gentoo.org): updated
135 /etc/init.d/runscripts.sh, /etc/init.d/net.eth0, /etc/conf.d/net and
136 removed /etc/init.d/net.eth0-dhcp to reflect a new 'bsd-ish' config
137 scheme for the net.eth* scripts.
138
139 6 Jan 2002: Donny Davies (woodchip@gentoo.org): Removed email address
140 from manpages; no need for that..
141
142 5 Jan 2002: Martin Schlemmer (azarah@gentoo.org): fix type-o in
143 /etc/devfsd.conf; had 'dvd' in the cdrw stuff.
144
145* rc-scripts 1.2.4 (30 Dec 2001)
146
147 30 Dec 2001: Daniel Robbins (drobbins@gentoo.org): Changed default umask
148 back to 022 as it should be.
149
150 30 Dec 2001; Martin Schlemmer (azarah@gentoo.org): Updated
151 /etc/init.d/checkfs to return 0 if the fs was successfully repaired.
152
153 29 Dec 2001; Donny Davies (woodchip@gentoo.org):
154 sort -t: -k3,3 -n /etc/passwd,group. Ahhhh :))
155
156 28 Dec 2001; Martin Schlemmer (azarah@gentoo.org); Updated
157 /etc/init.d/depscan.sh to store info about missing dependancies of
158 type 'need' in ${svcdir}/broken. Also updated /etc/init.d/runscript.sh
159 to use this when starting a script ('need' dependancies is critical for
160 startup). Added the broken() function to /etc/init.d/runscript.sh
161 to list the missing dependancies.
162
163 Updated /etc/init.d/runscript.sh for svc_start() to have better error
164 checking.
165
166 Updated /etc/init.d/functions.sh with ewend(), which is the same as
167 eend(), but print a warning on error, not a error. Updated
168 /etc/init.d/checkroot and /etc/init.d/checkfs to use this function.
169
170 27 Dec 2001; Martin Schlemmer (azarah@gentoo.org); Update /sbin/runscript.c
171 to run /etc/init.d/rc-help.sh if no arguments is passed to a rc-script.
172
173 Added /etc/init.d/rc-help.sh, simple script that prints out help for
174 the rc-scripts.
175
176 25 Dec 2001; Martin Schlemmer (azarah@gentoo.org); Update
177 /etc/init.d/shutdown.sh and /etc/init.d/reboot.sh not to force the
178 halt and reboot. This fixes a problem where / was not unmounted
179 properly in some cases.
180
181 24 Dec 2001; Martin Schlemmer (azarah@gentoo.org): Move $svcdir to
182 to /etc/init.d/functions.sh, and update /etc/init.d/runscript.sh and
183 /etc/init.d/depscan.sh for this
184
185 Modified /etc/init.d/runscript.sh to also restart the services that
186 depend on a service if that service is restarted. Enhanced the
187 restart function to be able to have custom restart() functions in
188 rc-scripts. The custom restart() have to use svc_stop() and
189 svc_start() to restart the service.
190
191 Add a pause function to /etc/init.d/runscript.sh. It will basically
192 stop a service without stopping the services that depends on that
193 service.
194
195 Add a pause function to /etc/init.d/runscript.sh. It will basically stop a
196 service without stopping the services that depends on that service.
197
198* rc-scripts 1.2.3 (18 Dec 2001)
199
200 16 Dec 2001; Martin Schlemmer (azarah@gentoo.org): Moved the stuff from
201 /sbin/init (old) to /sbin/rc (basically drop the init wrapper we used).
202
203 Some cleanups: take out the shm resize comment;
204
205 remove the $wrongmount;
206
207 remove the mountshm() function and insert it directly
208 where needed;
209
210 remove the setting of $PATH as /sbin/init already do
211 this for us.
212
213 Added the if statement to detect if it is the first time the 'boot'
214 runlevel is executed (if [ "$RUNLEVEL" = "S" ] && [ "$argv1" = "boot" ]).
215 $RUNLEVEL is a env var set by /sbin/init.
216
217 Also added functionality to detect if the kernel have DEVFS support
218 compiled in; seems new users thinks devfs is unstable and as they do
219 not always read the docs, it does not get compiled in ;/ Should
220 make live for us a bit easier.
221
222 14 Dec 2001; Martin Schlemmer (azarah@gentoo.org): Fixed /sbin/rc to kill
223 a cosmetic bug in the part that stops all the unneeded services.
224
225* rc-scripts 1.2.2 (8 Dec 2001)
226
227 10 Dec 2001; Added a localhost entry in /etc/hosts.
228
229 8 Dec 2001; Donny Davies (woodchip@gentoo.org): Added start-stop-daemon.c
230 to rc-scripts/sbin source. Moved rc-scripts/init.d/runscript.c to
231 rc-scripts/sbin/runscript.c. Added manpage for start-stop-daemon.
232 Start-stop-daemon is moved here from sysvinit by the way. There is stuff
233 in this ChangeLog that needs to be removed! Like the changes to hosts,
234 profile. /etc/{passwd,group} have minor UID and GID type fixes for
235 users ftp, postgres, xfs. Tweaked tarball.sh to not include CVS
236 directories.
237
238 29 Nov 2001; Donny Davies (woodchip@gentoo.org): Added a man directory
239 to rc-scripts. Checked in two manpages there, one for modules.autoload.5
240 and one for update-modules.8. These were adapted from Debian. Updated
241 tarball.sh to include the new man directory. Updated baselayout to install
242 these manpages. Slightly tweak the /etc/modules.autoload comments.
243
244 28 Nov 2001; Martin Schlemmer (azarah@gentoo.org): Updated /sbin/init
245 to work correctly with the 'gentoo=nodevfs' option, and cleaned
246 out old code.
247
248 Updated /etc/init.d/bootmisc with additional lock files to clean.
249
250 27 Nov 2001; Martin Schlemmer (azarah@gentoo.org): Updated
251 /etc/init.d/depscan.sh for a virtual 'use' depend, called 'logger'
252 that can be used for services that needs to have a logger started
253 before they are started. Updated /etc/conf.d/basic with $SYSLOGGER
254 that is used to define what loggers the 'logger' depend represent.
255
256 26 Nov 2001; Martin Schlemmer (azarah@gentoo.org): Updated
257 /etc/passwd and /etc/group with minor fixes to pass pwck and grpck.
258
259 25 Nov 2001; Martin Schlemmer (azarah@gentoo.org): Changed umask in
260 /etc/profile for the user to 077 for security.
261
262 Added a stop() function to /etc/init.d/clock. Also removed uneeded
263 'source /etc/rc.conf' line.
264
265 Updated /etc/init.d/hostname to set the hostname to 'localhost' if
266 /etc/hostname is invalid.
267
268 Updated /sbin/init to move the entries in /lib/dev-state to /dev before
269 running devfsd, as it did still not save settings properly. Also removed
270 old /dev-state/compat stuff.
271
5 25 Nov 2001; ncsd, the name service cache daemon script, has been removed 272 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 273 from the default "default" runlevel. It still exists in the archive so that
7 users who want/need it can add it easily. 274 users who want/need it can add it easily.
8 275
9 25 Nov 2001; Updated the /etc/fstab; removed usbdevfs (explicitly mounted), 276 25 Nov 2001; Updated the /etc/fstab; removed usbdevfs (explicitly mounted),
10 removed notail from the ext2 boot partition, other cleanups. 277 removed notail from the ext2 boot partition, other cleanups.
11 278
12 25 Nov 2001; Fixed init.d/clock script to work in UTC mode. 279 25 Nov 2001; Fixed init.d/clock script to work in UTC mode.
13 280
281 24 Nov 2001; Martin Schlemmer (azarah@gentoo.org): Added /etc/devfsd.conf
282 and updated /sbin/init to use a new scheme for saving /dev permissions.
283 Also moved /dev-state to /lib/dev-state which is a more standard location.
284
285 Fixed a ugly bug in /etc/init.d/depscan.sh. If a service depended on
286 itself, calling depscan.sh or changing runlevels cause a tempory effect
287 similar to a 'mini fork bomb'. Afterwards the depends was broken, and
288 changing runlevels did not want to work.
289
290 Updated /etc/init.d/halt.sh to terminate and display message for devfsd.
291 More cosmetic than anything else, but cant hurt with the new dev-state
292 scheme.
293
294 Updated /sbin/init to set the console log level to 1, so that bootup
295 can be much cleaner. Also updated /etc/init.d/modules not to have
296 a logger in it 'use' depends, as it should not be needed anymore.
297
298 Updated /sbin/rc to check if devfsd is still running between runlevel
299 changes.
300
301 Updated /etc/init.d/modules to run update-modules. We want to be sure
302 /etc/modules.conf is updated when running depmod -a.
303
304 Change ftp's uid to 21 in /etc/passwd (was the same as bind). Also
305 added a entry for xfs (X Font Server) in /etc/passwd and /etc/group.
306
307 Added /etc/init.d/net.ppp0, /etc/conf.d/net.ppp0 and
308 /usr/lib/ppp/chat-default as part of my new pppd scripts. Also
309 updated tarball.sh to handle ppp/chat-default.
310
311 Added /etc/skel/.bash* to make things cleaner.
312
313 Other minor changes.
314
14 17 Nov 2001; Donny Davies (woodchip@gentoo.org): Added /etc/shells file 315 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. 316 to rc-scripts. Can remove it from sys-libs/shadow at the next release.
16 317
17* rc-scripts 1.1.8 (15 Nov 2001) 318* rc-scripts 1.1.8 (15 Nov 2001)
18 319
25 functions in init.d/runscript.sh to better sounding ones. Updated 326 functions in init.d/runscript.sh to better sounding ones. Updated
26 init.d/modules, init.d/netmount to use 'use'. Lots of other fixes/cleanups. 327 init.d/modules, init.d/netmount to use 'use'. Lots of other fixes/cleanups.
27 Removed try() out of init.d/runscript.sh (why was this here ?). 328 Removed try() out of init.d/runscript.sh (why was this here ?).
28 329
29 14 Nov 2001; Martin Schlemmer (azarah@gentoo.org): init.d/bootmisc: Now 330 14 Nov 2001; Martin Schlemmer (azarah@gentoo.org): init.d/bootmisc: Now
30 cleans /tmp. Also creates /etc/resolv.conf if it doesn't exist. 331 cleans /tmp. Also creates /etc/resolv.conf if it doesn't exist.
31 332
32 init.d/hostname: Added check for a valid /etc/hostname. 333 init.d/hostname: Added check for a valid /etc/hostname.
33 334
34 init.d/keymaps: Added check for valid $KEYMAP. 335 init.d/keymaps: Added check for valid $KEYMAP.

36 init.d/modules: Added sysklogd, metalog, syslog-ng as 'use' deps. This 337 init.d/modules: Added sysklogd, metalog, syslog-ng as 'use' deps. This
37 should solve Woodchip's syslog+glue issue. We just have to change the 338 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 339 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. 340 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 341 Also the install guide will need changing to add the loggers to 'boot' and
41 not 'default' runlevel. 342 not 'default' runlevel.
42 343
43 init.d/mountall.test: Hopefully updated to the new rc-scripts style. Is 344 init.d/mountall.test: Hopefully updated to the new rc-scripts style. Is
44 this really needed (I cannot see that it is used anywhere ...)? 345 this really needed (I cannot see that it is used anywhere ...)?
45 346

47 init.d/runscript.sh, init.d/depscan.sh and sbin/rc with a new depend called 348 init.d/runscript.sh, init.d/depscan.sh and sbin/rc with a new depend called
48 'uses'. It basically have the same usage as 'need', except that it do not 349 'uses'. It basically have the same usage as 'need', except that it do not
49 start services that is not in the current and 'boot' runlevels. 350 start services that is not in the current and 'boot' runlevels.
