5 * rc-scripts 1.2.2 (8 Dec 2001)
7 8 Dec 2001; Donny Davies (woodchip@gentoo.org): Added start-stop-daemon.c
8 to rc-scripts/sbin source. Moved rc-scripts/init.d/runscript.c to
9 rc-scripts/sbin/runscript.c. Added manpage for start-stop-daemon.
10 Start-stop-daemon is moved here from sysvinit by the way. There is stuff
11 in this ChangeLog that needs to be removed! Like the changes to hosts,
12 profile. /etc/{passwd,group} have minor UID and GID type fixes for
13 users ftp, postgres, xfs.
15 29 Nov 2001; Donny Davies (woodchip@gentoo.org): Added a man directory
16 to rc-scripts. Checked in two manpages there, one for modules.autoload.5
17 and one for update-modules.8. These were adapted from Debian. Updated
18 tarball.sh to include the new man directory. Updated baselayout to install
19 these manpages. Slightly tweak the /etc/modules.autoload comments.
21 28 Nov 2001; Martin Schlemmer (azarah@gentoo.org): Updated /sbin/init
22 to work correctly with the 'gentoo=nodevfs' option, and cleaned
23 out old code.
25 Updated /etc/init.d/bootmisc with additional lock files to clean.
27 Updated /etc/init.d/hdparm to check if devfs is used.
29 27 Nov 2001; Martin Schlemmer (azarah@gentoo.org): Updated
30 /etc/init.d/depscan.sh for a virtual 'use' depend, called 'logger'
31 that can be used for services that needs to have a logger started
32 before they are started. Updated /etc/conf.d/basic with $SYSLOGGER
33 that is used to define what loggers the 'logger' depend represent.
34 Also updated /etc/init.d/hdparm and /etc/init.d/modules to use
35 this new depend.
37 26 Nov 2001; Martin Schlemmer (azarah@gentoo.org): Updated
38 /etc/passwd and /etc/group with minor fixes to pass pwck and grpck.
40 25 Nov 2001; Martin Schlemmer (azarah@gentoo.org): Changed umask in
41 /etc/profile for the user to 077 for security.
43 Added a localhost line to /etc/hosts after yet another post to gentoo-user.
44 I cant see any problem with this, and since nobody else wants to take the
45 plunge ....
47 Added a stop() function to /etc/init.d/clock. Also removed uneeded
48 'source /etc/rc.conf' line.
50 Updated /etc/init.d/hostname to set the hostname to 'localhost' if
51 /etc/hostname is invalid.
53 Updated /etc/init.d/hdparm to display a [ok] for each drive it optimizes.
55 Updated /sbin/init to move the entries in /lib/dev-state to /dev before
56 running devfsd, as it did still not save settings properly. Also removed
57 old /dev-state/compat stuff.
59 Removed a stupid bug out of /sbin/init ... /lib/dev-state/* was moved
60 to /dev *before* /dev was mounted.
62 Seems the .keep files in /lib/dev-state/pts and /lib/dev-state/shm
63 caused /sbin/init to lock while moving /lib/dev-state/* to /dev. Added
64 the needed fixes to the baselayout ebuild.
66 On second thoughts, removed the 'try' out of the code that moves
67 /lib/dev-state/* to /dev, since this is not a critical task, and
68 booting will still continue on failure.
70 25 Nov 2001; ncsd, the name service cache daemon script, has been removed
71 from the default "default" runlevel. It still exists in the archive so that
72 users who want/need it can add it easily.
74 25 Nov 2001; Updated the /etc/fstab; removed usbdevfs (explicitly mounted),
75 removed notail from the ext2 boot partition, other cleanups.
77 25 Nov 2001; Fixed init.d/clock script to work in UTC mode.
79 24 Nov 2001; Martin Schlemmer (azarah@gentoo.org): Added /etc/devfsd.conf
80 and updated /sbin/init to use a new scheme for saving /dev permissions.
81 Also moved /dev-state to /lib/dev-state which is a more standard location.
83 Added /etc/conf.d and moved rc.conf there as /etc/conf.d/basic. Created
84 /etc/rc.conf again as a blank file .. the website should be updated to
85 say that the user should look in /etc/conf.d/* for stuff to configure.
87 Added /etc/init.d/hdparm and /etc/conf.d/hdparm; a script and config
88 file for setting generic optimizations for the disk drives.
90 Fixed a ugly bug in /etc/init.d/depscan.sh. If a service depended on
91 itself, calling depscan.sh or changing runlevels cause a tempory effect
92 similar to a 'mini fork bomb'. Afterwards the depends was broken, and
93 changing runlevels did not want to work.
95 Updated /etc/init.d/halt.sh to terminate and display message for devfsd.
96 More cosmetic than anything else, but cant hurt with the new dev-state
97 scheme.
99 Removed config stuff from /etc/init.d/net.eth0, and moved it to
100 /etc/conf.d/net.eth0. Also added a comment to this effect.
102 Removed config stuff from /etc/init.d/net.eth0-dhcp, and moved it to
103 /etc/conf.d/net.eth0-dhcp. Also added a comment to this effect.
105 Updated gentoo-src/rc-scripts/rc-lists/default to add /etc/init.d/hdparm
106 to the default runlevel.
108 Updated /sbin/init to set the console log level to 1, so that bootup
109 can be much cleaner. Also updated /etc/init.d/modules not to have
110 a logger in it 'use' depends, as it should not be needed anymore.
112 Updated /sbin/rc to check if devfsd is still running between runlevel
113 changes.
115 Updated /etc/init.d/modules to run update-modules. We want to be sure
116 /etc/modules.conf is updated when running depmod -a.
118 Change ftp's uid to 21 in /etc/passwd (was the same as bind). Also
119 added a entry for xfs (X Font Server) in /etc/passwd and /etc/group.
121 Added /etc/init.d/net.ppp0, /etc/conf.d/net.ppp0 and
122 /usr/lib/ppp/chat-default as part of my new pppd scripts. Also
123 updated tarball.sh to handle ppp/chat-default.
125 Added /etc/skel/.bash* to make things cleaner and set $INPUTRC.
127 Minor changes I forgot about.
129 17 Nov 2001; Donny Davies (woodchip@gentoo.org): Added /etc/shells file
130 to rc-scripts. Can remove it from sys-libs/shadow at the next release.
132 * rc-scripts 1.1.8 (15 Nov 2001)
134 16 Nov 2001; removed bogus "mountall.test" script.
136 15 Nov 2001; Martin Schlemmer (azarah@gentoo.org): Updated
137 init.d/{runscript.sh,depscan.sh}, sbin/rc to the new dep being 'use' not
138 'uses', as it fits better with 'need' (not 'needs'). Also removed unneeded
139 for loop from init.d/depscan.sh, and other fixes. Updated names of new
140 functions in init.d/runscript.sh to better sounding ones. Updated
141 init.d/modules, init.d/netmount to use 'use'. Lots of other fixes/cleanups.
142 Removed try() out of init.d/runscript.sh (why was this here ?).
144 14 Nov 2001; Martin Schlemmer (azarah@gentoo.org): init.d/bootmisc: Now
145 cleans /tmp. Also creates /etc/resolv.conf if it doesn't exist.
147 init.d/hostname: Added check for a valid /etc/hostname.
149 init.d/keymaps: Added check for valid $KEYMAP.
151 init.d/modules: Added sysklogd, metalog, syslog-ng as 'use' deps. This
152 should solve Woodchip's syslog+glue issue. We just have to change the
153 console loglevel for metalog and syslog-ng (sysklogd already updated) not to
154 output info and warnings, etc to the console, then boot will be much cleaner.
155 Also the install guide will need changing to add the loggers to 'boot' and
156 not 'default' runlevel.
158 init.d/mountall.test: Hopefully updated to the new rc-scripts style. Is
159 this really needed (I cannot see that it is used anywhere ...)?
161 13 Nov 2001; Martin Schlemmer (azarah@gentoo.org): Updated
162 init.d/runscript.sh, init.d/depscan.sh and sbin/rc with a new depend called
163 'uses'. It basically have the same usage as 'need', except that it do not
164 start services that is not in the current and 'boot' runlevels.
166 Updated init.d/netmount to use the 'uses' depend.
168 11 Nov 2001; Martin Schlemmer (azarah@gentoo.org): Fixed init.d/runscript.sh
169 not to destroy the 'need' depends in /${svcdir}/need. This caused subsequent
170 starting and stopping of services not to start depends.
172 7 Nov 2001; Martin Schlemmer (azarah@gentoo.org): Fixed a problem in sbin/rc
173 where the ${svcdir}/softscripts directory got destroyed before stopping
174 running services scheduled to be stopped. This with the fact that $SOFTLEVEL
175 was set too early, caused the services to be stopped in the wrong order.
177 30 Oct 2001; Martin Schlemmer (azarah@gentoo.org): Modified init.d/netmount to
178 check if any network filesystems is mounted.
180 29 Oct 2001; init.d/netmount: umount -art doesn't seem to work, so I added
181 some awk and grep magic to find all remote filesystems and umount them.
183 29 Oct 2001; Martin Schlemmer (azarah@gentoo.org): A fix for checkroot
184 (missing "/"); it now actually checks the root filesystem. Also, a
185 localmount cleanliness fix.
187 * rc-scripts 1.1.7 (18 Oct 2001)

208 *init.d/runscript.sh
209 New "zap" option for manually resetting the state of an initscript
210 to stopped.
212 *init.d/{samba,sysklogd,sshd}

220 similarly to the old version, except this one updates our dependency
221 cache.
