5 25 Dec 2001; Martin Schlemmer (azarah@gentoo.org); Update
6 /etc/init.d/shutdown.sh and /etc/init.d/reboot.sh not to force the
7 halt and reboot. This fixes a problem where / was not unmounted
8 properly in some cases.
10 24 Dec 2001; Martin Schlemmer (azarah@gentoo.org): Move $svcdir to
11 to /etc/init.d/functions.sh, and update /etc/init.d/runscript.sh and
12 /etc/init.d/depscan.sh for this
14 Modified /etc/init.d/runscript.sh to also restart the services that
15 depend on a service if that service is restarted. Enhanced the
16 restart function to be able to have custom restart() functions in
17 rc-scripts. The custom restart() have to use svc_stop() and
18 svc_start() to restart the service.
20 Add a pause function to /etc/init.d/runscript.sh. It will basically
21 stop a service without stopping the services that depends on that
22 service.
24 * rc-scripts 1.2.3 (18 Dec 2001)
26 16 Dec 2001; Martin Schlemmer (azarah@gentoo.org): Moved the stuff from
27 /sbin/init (old) to /sbin/rc (basically drop the init wrapper we used).
29 Some cleanups: take out the shm resize comment;
31 remove the $wrongmount;
33 remove the mountshm() function and insert it directly
34 where needed;
36 remove the setting of $PATH as /sbin/init already do
37 this for us.
39 Added the if statement to detect if it is the first time the 'boot'
40 runlevel is executed (if [ "$RUNLEVEL" = "S" ] && [ "$argv1" = "boot" ]).
41 $RUNLEVEL is a env var set by /sbin/init.
43 Also added functionality to detect if the kernel have DEVFS support
44 compiled in; seems new users thinks devfs is unstable and as they do
45 not always read the docs, it does not get compiled in ;/ Should
46 make live for us a bit easier.
48 14 Dec 2001; Martin Schlemmer (azarah@gentoo.org): Fixed /sbin/rc to kill
49 a cosmetic bug in the part that stops all the unneeded services.
51 * rc-scripts 1.2.2 (8 Dec 2001)
53 10 Dec 2001; Added a localhost entry in /etc/hosts.
55 8 Dec 2001; Donny Davies (woodchip@gentoo.org): Added start-stop-daemon.c
56 to rc-scripts/sbin source. Moved rc-scripts/init.d/runscript.c to
57 rc-scripts/sbin/runscript.c. Added manpage for start-stop-daemon.
58 Start-stop-daemon is moved here from sysvinit by the way. There is stuff
59 in this ChangeLog that needs to be removed! Like the changes to hosts,
60 profile. /etc/{passwd,group} have minor UID and GID type fixes for
61 users ftp, postgres, xfs. Tweaked tarball.sh to not include CVS
62 directories.
64 29 Nov 2001; Donny Davies (woodchip@gentoo.org): Added a man directory
65 to rc-scripts. Checked in two manpages there, one for modules.autoload.5
66 and one for update-modules.8. These were adapted from Debian. Updated
67 tarball.sh to include the new man directory. Updated baselayout to install
68 these manpages. Slightly tweak the /etc/modules.autoload comments.
70 28 Nov 2001; Martin Schlemmer (azarah@gentoo.org): Updated /sbin/init
71 to work correctly with the 'gentoo=nodevfs' option, and cleaned
72 out old code.
74 Updated /etc/init.d/bootmisc with additional lock files to clean.
76 27 Nov 2001; Martin Schlemmer (azarah@gentoo.org): Updated
77 /etc/init.d/depscan.sh for a virtual 'use' depend, called 'logger'
78 that can be used for services that needs to have a logger started
79 before they are started. Updated /etc/conf.d/basic with $SYSLOGGER
80 that is used to define what loggers the 'logger' depend represent.
82 26 Nov 2001; Martin Schlemmer (azarah@gentoo.org): Updated
83 /etc/passwd and /etc/group with minor fixes to pass pwck and grpck.
85 25 Nov 2001; Martin Schlemmer (azarah@gentoo.org): Changed umask in
86 /etc/profile for the user to 077 for security.
88 Added a stop() function to /etc/init.d/clock. Also removed uneeded
89 'source /etc/rc.conf' line.
91 Updated /etc/init.d/hostname to set the hostname to 'localhost' if
92 /etc/hostname is invalid.
94 Updated /sbin/init to move the entries in /lib/dev-state to /dev before
95 running devfsd, as it did still not save settings properly. Also removed
96 old /dev-state/compat stuff.
98 25 Nov 2001; ncsd, the name service cache daemon script, has been removed
99 from the default "default" runlevel. It still exists in the archive so that
100 users who want/need it can add it easily.
102 25 Nov 2001; Updated the /etc/fstab; removed usbdevfs (explicitly mounted),
103 removed notail from the ext2 boot partition, other cleanups.
105 25 Nov 2001; Fixed init.d/clock script to work in UTC mode.
107 24 Nov 2001; Martin Schlemmer (azarah@gentoo.org): Added /etc/devfsd.conf
108 and updated /sbin/init to use a new scheme for saving /dev permissions.
109 Also moved /dev-state to /lib/dev-state which is a more standard location.
111 Fixed a ugly bug in /etc/init.d/depscan.sh. If a service depended on
112 itself, calling depscan.sh or changing runlevels cause a tempory effect
113 similar to a 'mini fork bomb'. Afterwards the depends was broken, and
114 changing runlevels did not want to work.
116 Updated /etc/init.d/halt.sh to terminate and display message for devfsd.
117 More cosmetic than anything else, but cant hurt with the new dev-state
118 scheme.
120 Updated /sbin/init to set the console log level to 1, so that bootup
121 can be much cleaner. Also updated /etc/init.d/modules not to have
122 a logger in it 'use' depends, as it should not be needed anymore.
124 Updated /sbin/rc to check if devfsd is still running between runlevel
125 changes.
127 Updated /etc/init.d/modules to run update-modules. We want to be sure
128 /etc/modules.conf is updated when running depmod -a.
130 Change ftp's uid to 21 in /etc/passwd (was the same as bind). Also
131 added a entry for xfs (X Font Server) in /etc/passwd and /etc/group.
133 Added /etc/init.d/net.ppp0, /etc/conf.d/net.ppp0 and
134 /usr/lib/ppp/chat-default as part of my new pppd scripts. Also
135 updated tarball.sh to handle ppp/chat-default.
137 Added /etc/skel/.bash* to make things cleaner.
139 Other minor changes.
141 17 Nov 2001; Donny Davies (woodchip@gentoo.org): Added /etc/shells file
142 to rc-scripts. Can remove it from sys-libs/shadow at the next release.
144 * rc-scripts 1.1.8 (15 Nov 2001)
146 16 Nov 2001; removed bogus "mountall.test" script.
148 15 Nov 2001; Martin Schlemmer (azarah@gentoo.org): Updated
149 init.d/{runscript.sh,depscan.sh}, sbin/rc to the new dep being 'use' not
150 'uses', as it fits better with 'need' (not 'needs'). Also removed unneeded
151 for loop from init.d/depscan.sh, and other fixes. Updated names of new
152 functions in init.d/runscript.sh to better sounding ones. Updated
153 init.d/modules, init.d/netmount to use 'use'. Lots of other fixes/cleanups.
154 Removed try() out of init.d/runscript.sh (why was this here ?).
156 14 Nov 2001; Martin Schlemmer (azarah@gentoo.org): init.d/bootmisc: Now
157 cleans /tmp. Also creates /etc/resolv.conf if it doesn't exist.
159 init.d/hostname: Added check for a valid /etc/hostname.
161 init.d/keymaps: Added check for valid $KEYMAP.
163 init.d/modules: Added sysklogd, metalog, syslog-ng as 'use' deps. This
164 should solve Woodchip's syslog+glue issue. We just have to change the
165 console loglevel for metalog and syslog-ng (sysklogd already updated) not to
166 output info and warnings, etc to the console, then boot will be much cleaner.
167 Also the install guide will need changing to add the loggers to 'boot' and
168 not 'default' runlevel.
170 init.d/mountall.test: Hopefully updated to the new rc-scripts style. Is
171 this really needed (I cannot see that it is used anywhere ...)?
173 13 Nov 2001; Martin Schlemmer (azarah@gentoo.org): Updated
174 init.d/runscript.sh, init.d/depscan.sh and sbin/rc with a new depend called
175 'uses'. It basically have the same usage as 'need', except that it do not
176 start services that is not in the current and 'boot' runlevels.
178 Updated init.d/netmount to use the 'uses' depend.
180 11 Nov 2001; Martin Schlemmer (azarah@gentoo.org): Fixed init.d/runscript.sh
181 not to destroy the 'need' depends in /${svcdir}/need. This caused subsequent
182 starting and stopping of services not to start depends.
184 7 Nov 2001; Martin Schlemmer (azarah@gentoo.org): Fixed a problem in sbin/rc
185 where the ${svcdir}/softscripts directory got destroyed before stopping
186 running services scheduled to be stopped. This with the fact that $SOFTLEVEL
187 was set too early, caused the services to be stopped in the wrong order.
189 30 Oct 2001; Martin Schlemmer (azarah@gentoo.org): Modified init.d/netmount to
190 check if any network filesystems is mounted.
192 29 Oct 2001; init.d/netmount: umount -art doesn't seem to work, so I added
193 some awk and grep magic to find all remote filesystems and umount them.
195 29 Oct 2001; Martin Schlemmer (azarah@gentoo.org): A fix for checkroot
196 (missing "/"); it now actually checks the root filesystem. Also, a
197 localmount cleanliness fix.
199 * rc-scripts 1.1.7 (18 Oct 2001)

221 New "zap" option for manually resetting the state of an initscript
222 to stopped.
