3 # Written by Daniel Robbins (drobbins@gentoo.org)
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. Tweaked tarball.sh to not include CVS
14 directories.
16 29 Nov 2001; Donny Davies (woodchip@gentoo.org): Added a man directory
17 to rc-scripts. Checked in two manpages there, one for modules.autoload.5
18 and one for update-modules.8. These were adapted from Debian. Updated
19 tarball.sh to include the new man directory. Updated baselayout to install
20 these manpages. Slightly tweak the /etc/modules.autoload comments.
22 28 Nov 2001; Martin Schlemmer (azarah@gentoo.org): Updated /sbin/init
23 to work correctly with the 'gentoo=nodevfs' option, and cleaned
24 out old code.
26 Updated /etc/init.d/bootmisc with additional lock files to clean.
28 Updated /etc/init.d/hdparm to check if devfs is used.
30 27 Nov 2001; Martin Schlemmer (azarah@gentoo.org): Updated
31 /etc/init.d/depscan.sh for a virtual 'use' depend, called 'logger'
32 that can be used for services that needs to have a logger started
33 before they are started. Updated /etc/conf.d/basic with $SYSLOGGER
34 that is used to define what loggers the 'logger' depend represent.
35 Also updated /etc/init.d/hdparm and /etc/init.d/modules to use
36 this new depend.
38 26 Nov 2001; Martin Schlemmer (azarah@gentoo.org): Updated
39 /etc/passwd and /etc/group with minor fixes to pass pwck and grpck.
41 25 Nov 2001; Martin Schlemmer (azarah@gentoo.org): Changed umask in
42 /etc/profile for the user to 077 for security.
44 Added a localhost line to /etc/hosts after yet another post to gentoo-user.
45 I cant see any problem with this, and since nobody else wants to take the
46 plunge ....
48 Added a stop() function to /etc/init.d/clock. Also removed uneeded
49 'source /etc/rc.conf' line.
51 Updated /etc/init.d/hostname to set the hostname to 'localhost' if
52 /etc/hostname is invalid.
54 Updated /etc/init.d/hdparm to display a [ok] for each drive it optimizes.
56 Updated /sbin/init to move the entries in /lib/dev-state to /dev before
57 running devfsd, as it did still not save settings properly. Also removed
58 old /dev-state/compat stuff.
60 Removed a stupid bug out of /sbin/init ... /lib/dev-state/* was moved
61 to /dev *before* /dev was mounted.
63 Seems the .keep files in /lib/dev-state/pts and /lib/dev-state/shm
64 caused /sbin/init to lock while moving /lib/dev-state/* to /dev. Added
65 the needed fixes to the baselayout ebuild.
67 On second thoughts, removed the 'try' out of the code that moves
68 /lib/dev-state/* to /dev, since this is not a critical task, and
69 booting will still continue on failure.
71 25 Nov 2001; ncsd, the name service cache daemon script, has been removed
72 from the default "default" runlevel. It still exists in the archive so that
73 users who want/need it can add it easily.
75 25 Nov 2001; Updated the /etc/fstab; removed usbdevfs (explicitly mounted),
76 removed notail from the ext2 boot partition, other cleanups.
78 25 Nov 2001; Fixed init.d/clock script to work in UTC mode.
80 24 Nov 2001; Martin Schlemmer (azarah@gentoo.org): Added /etc/devfsd.conf
81 and updated /sbin/init to use a new scheme for saving /dev permissions.
82 Also moved /dev-state to /lib/dev-state which is a more standard location.
84 Added /etc/conf.d and moved rc.conf there as /etc/conf.d/basic. Created
85 /etc/rc.conf again as a blank file .. the website should be updated to
86 say that the user should look in /etc/conf.d/* for stuff to configure.
88 Added /etc/init.d/hdparm and /etc/conf.d/hdparm; a script and config
89 file for setting generic optimizations for the disk drives.
91 Fixed a ugly bug in /etc/init.d/depscan.sh. If a service depended on
92 itself, calling depscan.sh or changing runlevels cause a tempory effect
93 similar to a 'mini fork bomb'. Afterwards the depends was broken, and
94 changing runlevels did not want to work.
96 Updated /etc/init.d/halt.sh to terminate and display message for devfsd.
97 More cosmetic than anything else, but cant hurt with the new dev-state
98 scheme.
100 Removed config stuff from /etc/init.d/net.eth0, and moved it to
101 /etc/conf.d/net.eth0. Also added a comment to this effect.
103 Removed config stuff from /etc/init.d/net.eth0-dhcp, and moved it to
104 /etc/conf.d/net.eth0-dhcp. Also added a comment to this effect.
106 Updated gentoo-src/rc-scripts/rc-lists/default to add /etc/init.d/hdparm
107 to the default runlevel.
109 Updated /sbin/init to set the console log level to 1, so that bootup
110 can be much cleaner. Also updated /etc/init.d/modules not to have
111 a logger in it 'use' depends, as it should not be needed anymore.
113 Updated /sbin/rc to check if devfsd is still running between runlevel
114 changes.
116 Updated /etc/init.d/modules to run update-modules. We want to be sure
117 /etc/modules.conf is updated when running depmod -a.
119 Change ftp's uid to 21 in /etc/passwd (was the same as bind). Also
120 added a entry for xfs (X Font Server) in /etc/passwd and /etc/group.
122 Added /etc/init.d/net.ppp0, /etc/conf.d/net.ppp0 and
123 /usr/lib/ppp/chat-default as part of my new pppd scripts. Also
124 updated tarball.sh to handle ppp/chat-default.
126 Added /etc/skel/.bash* to make things cleaner and set $INPUTRC.
128 Minor changes I forgot about.
130 17 Nov 2001; Donny Davies (woodchip@gentoo.org): Added /etc/shells file
131 to rc-scripts. Can remove it from sys-libs/shadow at the next release.
133 * rc-scripts 1.1.8 (15 Nov 2001)
135 16 Nov 2001; removed bogus "mountall.test" script.
137 15 Nov 2001; Martin Schlemmer (azarah@gentoo.org): Updated
138 init.d/{runscript.sh,depscan.sh}, sbin/rc to the new dep being 'use' not
139 'uses', as it fits better with 'need' (not 'needs'). Also removed unneeded
140 for loop from init.d/depscan.sh, and other fixes. Updated names of new
141 functions in init.d/runscript.sh to better sounding ones. Updated
142 init.d/modules, init.d/netmount to use 'use'. Lots of other fixes/cleanups.
143 Removed try() out of init.d/runscript.sh (why was this here ?).
145 14 Nov 2001; Martin Schlemmer (azarah@gentoo.org): init.d/bootmisc: Now
146 cleans /tmp. Also creates /etc/resolv.conf if it doesn't exist.
148 init.d/hostname: Added check for a valid /etc/hostname.
150 init.d/keymaps: Added check for valid $KEYMAP.
152 init.d/modules: Added sysklogd, metalog, syslog-ng as 'use' deps. This
153 should solve Woodchip's syslog+glue issue. We just have to change the
154 console loglevel for metalog and syslog-ng (sysklogd already updated) not to
155 output info and warnings, etc to the console, then boot will be much cleaner.
156 Also the install guide will need changing to add the loggers to 'boot' and
157 not 'default' runlevel.
159 init.d/mountall.test: Hopefully updated to the new rc-scripts style. Is
160 this really needed (I cannot see that it is used anywhere ...)?
162 13 Nov 2001; Martin Schlemmer (azarah@gentoo.org): Updated
163 init.d/runscript.sh, init.d/depscan.sh and sbin/rc with a new depend called
164 'uses'. It basically have the same usage as 'need', except that it do not
165 start services that is not in the current and 'boot' runlevels.
167 Updated init.d/netmount to use the 'uses' depend.
169 11 Nov 2001; Martin Schlemmer (azarah@gentoo.org): Fixed init.d/runscript.sh
170 not to destroy the 'need' depends in /${svcdir}/need. This caused subsequent
171 starting and stopping of services not to start depends.
173 7 Nov 2001; Martin Schlemmer (azarah@gentoo.org): Fixed a problem in sbin/rc
174 where the ${svcdir}/softscripts directory got destroyed before stopping
175 running services scheduled to be stopped. This with the fact that $SOFTLEVEL
176 was set too early, caused the services to be stopped in the wrong order.
178 30 Oct 2001; Martin Schlemmer (azarah@gentoo.org): Modified init.d/netmount to
179 check if any network filesystems is mounted.
181 29 Oct 2001; init.d/netmount: umount -art doesn't seem to work, so I added
182 some awk and grep magic to find all remote filesystems and umount them.
184 29 Oct 2001; Martin Schlemmer (azarah@gentoo.org): A fix for checkroot
185 (missing "/"); it now actually checks the root filesystem. Also, a
186 localmount cleanliness fix.
188 * rc-scripts 1.1.7 (18 Oct 2001)
190 [old changelog format follows]
192 *lots of scripts; woodchip

202 ======================================
204 *init.d/runscript.sh, others
205 Handling of "net" dependencies resolve to all net devices in
206 /etc/runlevels/boot and /etc/runlevels/[curr-runlevel]. INTERFACES
207 variable in /etc/rc.conf has been removed.
209 *init.d/runscript.sh
210 New "zap" option for manually resetting the state of an initscript
211 to stopped.
213 *init.d/{samba,sysklogd,sshd}
214 Removed from CVS; they live in their respective packages.
216 rc-scripts-1.1.5, released 02 Sep 2001
217 ====================================
219 *sbin/rc-update

221 similarly to the old version, except this one updates our dependency
222 cache.
224 *init.d/functions.sh
225 New and better looking informational message functions (einfo, einfon).
226 Brand new message functions (ewarn).
228 *sbin/init, init.d/checkroot
229 We're going back to a /proc/mounts-based mtab symlink because it's
230 just plain better. Appropriate changes made.
