1 # ChangeLog for Gentoo Linux System Intialization ("rc") scripts

5 29 Nov 2001; Donny Davies (woodchip@gentoo.org): Added a man directory
6 to rc-scripts. Checked in two manpages there, one for modules.autoload.5
7 and one for update-modules.8. These were adapted from Debian. Updated
8 tarball.sh to include the new man directory. Updated baselayout to install
9 these manpages. Slightly tweak the /etc/modules.autoload comments.
11 28 Nov 2001; Martin Schlemmer (azarah@gentoo.org): Updated /sbin/init
12 to work correctly with the 'gentoo=nodevfs' option, and cleaned
13 out old code.
15 Updated /etc/init.d/bootmisc with additional lock files to clean.
17 Updated /etc/init.d/hdparm to check if devfs is used.
19 27 Nov 2001; Martin Schlemmer (azarah@gentoo.org): Updated
20 /etc/init.d/depscan.sh for a virtual 'use' depend, called 'logger'
21 that can be used for services that needs to have a logger started
22 before they are started. Updated /etc/conf.d/basic with $SYSLOGGER
23 that is used to define what loggers the 'logger' depend represent.
24 Also updated /etc/init.d/hdparm and /etc/init.d/modules to use
25 this new depend.
27 26 Nov 2001; Martin Schlemmer (azarah@gentoo.org): Updated
28 /etc/passwd and /etc/group with minor fixes to pass pwck and grpck.
30 25 Nov 2001; Martin Schlemmer (azarah@gentoo.org): Changed umask in
31 /etc/profile for the user to 077 for security.
33 Added a localhost line to /etc/hosts after yet another post to gentoo-user.
34 I cant see any problem with this, and since nobody else wants to take the
35 plunge ....
37 Added a stop() function to /etc/init.d/clock. Also removed uneeded
38 'source /etc/rc.conf' line.
40 Updated /etc/init.d/hostname to set the hostname to 'localhost' if
41 /etc/hostname is invalid.
43 Updated /etc/init.d/hdparm to display a [ok] for each drive it optimizes.
45 Updated /sbin/init to move the entries in /lib/dev-state to /dev before
46 running devfsd, as it did still not save settings properly. Also removed
47 old /dev-state/compat stuff.
49 Removed a stupid bug out of /sbin/init ... /lib/dev-state/* was moved
50 to /dev *before* /dev was mounted.
52 Seems the .keep files in /lib/dev-state/pts and /lib/dev-state/shm
53 caused /sbin/init to lock while moving /lib/dev-state/* to /dev. Added
54 the needed fixes to the baselayout ebuild.
56 On second thoughts, removed the 'try' out of the code that moves
57 /lib/dev-state/* to /dev, since this is not a critical task, and
58 booting will still continue on failure.
60 25 Nov 2001; ncsd, the name service cache daemon script, has been removed
61 from the default "default" runlevel. It still exists in the archive so that
62 users who want/need it can add it easily.
64 25 Nov 2001; Updated the /etc/fstab; removed usbdevfs (explicitly mounted),
65 removed notail from the ext2 boot partition, other cleanups.
67 25 Nov 2001; Fixed init.d/clock script to work in UTC mode.
69 24 Nov 2001; Martin Schlemmer (azarah@gentoo.org): Added /etc/devfsd.conf
70 and updated /sbin/init to use a new scheme for saving /dev permissions.
71 Also moved /dev-state to /lib/dev-state which is a more standard location.
73 Added /etc/conf.d and moved rc.conf there as /etc/conf.d/basic. Created
74 /etc/rc.conf again as a blank file .. the website should be updated to
75 say that the user should look in /etc/conf.d/* for stuff to configure.
77 Added /etc/init.d/hdparm and /etc/conf.d/hdparm; a script and config
78 file for setting generic optimizations for the disk drives.
80 Fixed a ugly bug in /etc/init.d/depscan.sh. If a service depended on
81 itself, calling depscan.sh or changing runlevels cause a tempory effect
82 similar to a 'mini fork bomb'. Afterwards the depends was broken, and
83 changing runlevels did not want to work.
85 Updated /etc/init.d/halt.sh to terminate and display message for devfsd.
86 More cosmetic than anything else, but cant hurt with the new dev-state
87 scheme.
89 Removed config stuff from /etc/init.d/net.eth0, and moved it to
90 /etc/conf.d/net.eth0. Also added a comment to this effect.
92 Removed config stuff from /etc/init.d/net.eth0-dhcp, and moved it to
93 /etc/conf.d/net.eth0-dhcp. Also added a comment to this effect.
95 Updated gentoo-src/rc-scripts/rc-lists/default to add /etc/init.d/hdparm
96 to the default runlevel.
98 Updated /sbin/init to set the console log level to 1, so that bootup
99 can be much cleaner. Also updated /etc/init.d/modules not to have
100 a logger in it 'use' depends, as it should not be needed anymore.
102 Updated /sbin/rc to check if devfsd is still running between runlevel
103 changes.
105 Updated /etc/init.d/modules to run update-modules. We want to be sure
106 /etc/modules.conf is updated when running depmod -a.
108 Change ftp's uid to 21 in /etc/passwd (was the same as bind). Also
109 added a entry for xfs (X Font Server) in /etc/passwd and /etc/group.
111 Added /etc/init.d/net.ppp0, /etc/conf.d/net.ppp0 and
112 /usr/lib/ppp/chat-default as part of my new pppd scripts. Also
113 updated tarball.sh to handle ppp/chat-default.
115 Added /etc/skel/.bash* to make things cleaner and set $INPUTRC.
117 Minor changes I forgot about.
119 17 Nov 2001; Donny Davies (woodchip@gentoo.org): Added /etc/shells file
120 to rc-scripts. Can remove it from sys-libs/shadow at the next release.
122 * rc-scripts 1.1.8 (15 Nov 2001)
124 16 Nov 2001; removed bogus "mountall.test" script.
126 15 Nov 2001; Martin Schlemmer (azarah@gentoo.org): Updated
127 init.d/{runscript.sh,depscan.sh}, sbin/rc to the new dep being 'use' not
128 'uses', as it fits better with 'need' (not 'needs'). Also removed unneeded
129 for loop from init.d/depscan.sh, and other fixes. Updated names of new
130 functions in init.d/runscript.sh to better sounding ones. Updated
131 init.d/modules, init.d/netmount to use 'use'. Lots of other fixes/cleanups.
132 Removed try() out of init.d/runscript.sh (why was this here ?).
134 14 Nov 2001; Martin Schlemmer (azarah@gentoo.org): init.d/bootmisc: Now
135 cleans /tmp. Also creates /etc/resolv.conf if it doesn't exist.
137 init.d/hostname: Added check for a valid /etc/hostname.
139 init.d/keymaps: Added check for valid $KEYMAP.
141 init.d/modules: Added sysklogd, metalog, syslog-ng as 'use' deps. This
142 should solve Woodchip's syslog+glue issue. We just have to change the
143 console loglevel for metalog and syslog-ng (sysklogd already updated) not to
144 output info and warnings, etc to the console, then boot will be much cleaner.
145 Also the install guide will need changing to add the loggers to 'boot' and
146 not 'default' runlevel.
148 init.d/mountall.test: Hopefully updated to the new rc-scripts style. Is
149 this really needed (I cannot see that it is used anywhere ...)?
151 13 Nov 2001; Martin Schlemmer (azarah@gentoo.org): Updated
152 init.d/runscript.sh, init.d/depscan.sh and sbin/rc with a new depend called
153 'uses'. It basically have the same usage as 'need', except that it do not
154 start services that is not in the current and 'boot' runlevels.
156 Updated init.d/netmount to use the 'uses' depend.
158 11 Nov 2001; Martin Schlemmer (azarah@gentoo.org): Fixed init.d/runscript.sh
159 not to destroy the 'need' depends in /${svcdir}/need. This caused subsequent
160 starting and stopping of services not to start depends.
162 7 Nov 2001; Martin Schlemmer (azarah@gentoo.org): Fixed a problem in sbin/rc
163 where the ${svcdir}/softscripts directory got destroyed before stopping
164 running services scheduled to be stopped. This with the fact that $SOFTLEVEL
165 was set too early, caused the services to be stopped in the wrong order.
167 30 Oct 2001; Martin Schlemmer (azarah@gentoo.org): Modified init.d/netmount to
168 check if any network filesystems is mounted.
170 29 Oct 2001; init.d/netmount: umount -art doesn't seem to work, so I added
171 some awk and grep magic to find all remote filesystems and umount them.
173 29 Oct 2001; Martin Schlemmer (azarah@gentoo.org): A fix for checkroot
174 (missing "/"); it now actually checks the root filesystem. Also, a
175 localmount cleanliness fix.
177 * rc-scripts 1.1.7 (18 Oct 2001)
179 [old changelog format follows]
181 *lots of scripts; woodchip
182 removed old rc5 scripts from cvs
184 *init.d/runscript.sh; agriffis
185 Added support for rc.conf and home-grown functions
187 *init.d/modules;
188 Now correctly looks at /etc/modules.autoload
190 rc-scripts-1.1.6, released 15 Sep 2001
191 ======================================
193 *init.d/runscript.sh, others
194 Handling of "net" dependencies resolve to all net devices in
195 /etc/runlevels/boot and /etc/runlevels/[curr-runlevel]. INTERFACES
196 variable in /etc/rc.conf has been removed.
198 *init.d/runscript.sh
199 New "zap" option for manually resetting the state of an initscript
200 to stopped.
202 *init.d/{samba,sysklogd,sshd}
203 Removed from CVS; they live in their respective packages.
205 rc-scripts-1.1.5, released 02 Sep 2001
206 ====================================
208 *sbin/rc-update
209 New version of the rc-update command for the new initscripts. Works
210 similarly to the old version, except this one updates our dependency
211 cache.
213 *init.d/functions.sh
214 New and better looking informational message functions (einfo, einfon).
215 Brand new message functions (ewarn).
217 *sbin/init, init.d/checkroot
218 We're going back to a /proc/mounts-based mtab symlink because it's
219 just plain better. Appropriate changes made.
