5 woodchip 1.24 6 Jan 2002: Donny Davies (woodchip@gentoo.org): Removed email address
6     from manpages; no need for that..
7    
8 drobbins 1.23 * rc-scripts 1.2.4 (30 Dec 2001)
9    
10     30 Dec 2001: Daniel Robbins (drobbins@gentoo.org): Changed default umask
11     back to 022 as it should be.
12    
13 azarah 1.22 30 Dec 2001; Martin Schlemmer (azarah@gentoo.org): Updated
14     /etc/init.d/checkfs to return 0 if the fs was successfully repaired.
15    
16 woodchip 1.21 29 Dec 2001; Donny Davies (woodchip@gentoo.org):
17     sort -t: -k3,3 -n /etc/passwd,group. Ahhhh :))
18    
19 azarah 1.20 28 Dec 2001; Martin Schlemmer (azarah@gentoo.org); Updated
20     /etc/init.d/depscan.sh to store info about missing dependancies of
21     type 'need' in ${svcdir}/broken. Also updated /etc/init.d/runscript.sh
22     to use this when starting a script ('need' dependancies is critical for
23     startup). Added the broken() function to /etc/init.d/runscript.sh
24     to list the missing dependancies.
25    
26     Updated /etc/init.d/runscript.sh for svc_start() to have better error
27     checking.
28    
29     Updated /etc/init.d/functions.sh with ewend(), which is the same as
30     eend(), but print a warning on error, not a error. Updated
31     /etc/init.d/checkroot and /etc/init.d/checkfs to use this function.
32    
33     27 Dec 2001; Martin Schlemmer (azarah@gentoo.org); Update /sbin/runscript.c
34     to run /etc/init.d/rc-help.sh if no arguments is passed to a rc-script.
35    
36     Added /etc/init.d/rc-help.sh, simple script that prints out help for
37     the rc-scripts.
38    
39 azarah 1.19 25 Dec 2001; Martin Schlemmer (azarah@gentoo.org); Update
40     /etc/init.d/shutdown.sh and /etc/init.d/reboot.sh not to force the
41     halt and reboot. This fixes a problem where / was not unmounted
42     properly in some cases.
43    
44     24 Dec 2001; Martin Schlemmer (azarah@gentoo.org): Move $svcdir to
45     to /etc/init.d/functions.sh, and update /etc/init.d/runscript.sh and
46     /etc/init.d/depscan.sh for this
47    
48     Modified /etc/init.d/runscript.sh to also restart the services that
49     depend on a service if that service is restarted. Enhanced the
50     restart function to be able to have custom restart() functions in
51     rc-scripts. The custom restart() have to use svc_stop() and
52     svc_start() to restart the service.
53    
54     Add a pause function to /etc/init.d/runscript.sh. It will basically
55     stop a service without stopping the services that depends on that
56     service.
57 drobbins 1.23
58     Add a pause function to /etc/init.d/runscript.sh. It will basically stop a
59     service without stopping the services that depends on that service.
60 azarah 1.19
61     * rc-scripts 1.2.3 (18 Dec 2001)
62    
63     16 Dec 2001; Martin Schlemmer (azarah@gentoo.org): Moved the stuff from
64     /sbin/init (old) to /sbin/rc (basically drop the init wrapper we used).
65    
66     Some cleanups: take out the shm resize comment;
67    
68     remove the $wrongmount;
69    
70     remove the mountshm() function and insert it directly
71     where needed;
72    
73     remove the setting of $PATH as /sbin/init already do
74     this for us.
75    
76     Added the if statement to detect if it is the first time the 'boot'
77     runlevel is executed (if [ "$RUNLEVEL" = "S" ] && [ "$argv1" = "boot" ]).
78     $RUNLEVEL is a env var set by /sbin/init.
79    
80     Also added functionality to detect if the kernel have DEVFS support
81     compiled in; seems new users thinks devfs is unstable and as they do
82     not always read the docs, it does not get compiled in ;/ Should
83     make live for us a bit easier.
84    
85     14 Dec 2001; Martin Schlemmer (azarah@gentoo.org): Fixed /sbin/rc to kill
86     a cosmetic bug in the part that stops all the unneeded services.
87    
88 woodchip 1.16 * rc-scripts 1.2.2 (8 Dec 2001)
89    
90 azarah 1.18 10 Dec 2001; Added a localhost entry in /etc/hosts.
91    
92 woodchip 1.16 8 Dec 2001; Donny Davies (woodchip@gentoo.org): Added start-stop-daemon.c
93     to rc-scripts/sbin source. Moved rc-scripts/init.d/runscript.c to
94     rc-scripts/sbin/runscript.c. Added manpage for start-stop-daemon.
95     Start-stop-daemon is moved here from sysvinit by the way. There is stuff
96     in this ChangeLog that needs to be removed! Like the changes to hosts,
97     profile. /etc/{passwd,group} have minor UID and GID type fixes for
98 woodchip 1.17 users ftp, postgres, xfs. Tweaked tarball.sh to not include CVS
99     directories.
100 woodchip 1.16
101 woodchip 1.13 29 Nov 2001; Donny Davies (woodchip@gentoo.org): Added a man directory
102     to rc-scripts. Checked in two manpages there, one for modules.autoload.5
103 woodchip 1.14 and one for update-modules.8. These were adapted from Debian. Updated
104     tarball.sh to include the new man directory. Updated baselayout to install
105     these manpages. Slightly tweak the /etc/modules.autoload comments.
106 woodchip 1.13
107 drobbins 1.15 28 Nov 2001; Martin Schlemmer (azarah@gentoo.org): Updated /sbin/init
108     to work correctly with the 'gentoo=nodevfs' option, and cleaned
109     out old code.
110    
111     Updated /etc/init.d/bootmisc with additional lock files to clean.
112    
113     27 Nov 2001; Martin Schlemmer (azarah@gentoo.org): Updated
114     /etc/init.d/depscan.sh for a virtual 'use' depend, called 'logger'
115     that can be used for services that needs to have a logger started
116     before they are started. Updated /etc/conf.d/basic with $SYSLOGGER
117     that is used to define what loggers the 'logger' depend represent.
118    
119     26 Nov 2001; Martin Schlemmer (azarah@gentoo.org): Updated
120     /etc/passwd and /etc/group with minor fixes to pass pwck and grpck.
121    
122     25 Nov 2001; Martin Schlemmer (azarah@gentoo.org): Changed umask in
123     /etc/profile for the user to 077 for security.
124    
125     Added a stop() function to /etc/init.d/clock. Also removed uneeded
126     'source /etc/rc.conf' line.
127    
128     Updated /etc/init.d/hostname to set the hostname to 'localhost' if
129     /etc/hostname is invalid.
130    
131     Updated /sbin/init to move the entries in /lib/dev-state to /dev before
132     running devfsd, as it did still not save settings properly. Also removed
133     old /dev-state/compat stuff.
134    
135 drobbins 1.12 25 Nov 2001; ncsd, the name service cache daemon script, has been removed
136     from the default "default" runlevel. It still exists in the archive so that
137 drobbins 1.15 users who want/need it can add it easily.
138 drobbins 1.12
139 drobbins 1.11 25 Nov 2001; Updated the /etc/fstab; removed usbdevfs (explicitly mounted),
140 drobbins 1.15 removed notail from the ext2 boot partition, other cleanups.
141 drobbins 1.11
142 drobbins 1.10 25 Nov 2001; Fixed init.d/clock script to work in UTC mode.
143 drobbins 1.15
144     24 Nov 2001; Martin Schlemmer (azarah@gentoo.org): Added /etc/devfsd.conf
145     and updated /sbin/init to use a new scheme for saving /dev permissions.
146     Also moved /dev-state to /lib/dev-state which is a more standard location.
147    
148     Fixed a ugly bug in /etc/init.d/depscan.sh. If a service depended on
149     itself, calling depscan.sh or changing runlevels cause a tempory effect
150     similar to a 'mini fork bomb'. Afterwards the depends was broken, and
151     changing runlevels did not want to work.
152    
153     Updated /etc/init.d/halt.sh to terminate and display message for devfsd.
154     More cosmetic than anything else, but cant hurt with the new dev-state
155     scheme.
156    
157     Updated /sbin/init to set the console log level to 1, so that bootup
158     can be much cleaner. Also updated /etc/init.d/modules not to have
159     a logger in it 'use' depends, as it should not be needed anymore.
160    
161     Updated /sbin/rc to check if devfsd is still running between runlevel
162     changes.
163    
164     Updated /etc/init.d/modules to run update-modules. We want to be sure
165     /etc/modules.conf is updated when running depmod -a.
166    
167     Change ftp's uid to 21 in /etc/passwd (was the same as bind). Also
168     added a entry for xfs (X Font Server) in /etc/passwd and /etc/group.
169    
170     Added /etc/init.d/net.ppp0, /etc/conf.d/net.ppp0 and
171     /usr/lib/ppp/chat-default as part of my new pppd scripts. Also
172     updated tarball.sh to handle ppp/chat-default.
173    
174 azarah 1.19 Added /etc/skel/.bash* to make things cleaner.
175 drobbins 1.15
176 azarah 1.19 Other minor changes.
177 drobbins 1.15
178 woodchip 1.9 17 Nov 2001; Donny Davies (woodchip@gentoo.org): Added /etc/shells file
179     to rc-scripts. Can remove it from sys-libs/shadow at the next release.
180    
181 drobbins 1.8 * rc-scripts 1.1.8 (15 Nov 2001)
182    
183     16 Nov 2001; removed bogus "mountall.test" script.
184 drobbins 1.7
185 drobbins 1.8 15 Nov 2001; Martin Schlemmer (azarah@gentoo.org): Updated
186     init.d/{runscript.sh,depscan.sh}, sbin/rc to the new dep being 'use' not
187     'uses', as it fits better with 'need' (not 'needs'). Also removed unneeded
188     for loop from init.d/depscan.sh, and other fixes. Updated names of new
189     functions in init.d/runscript.sh to better sounding ones. Updated
190     init.d/modules, init.d/netmount to use 'use'. Lots of other fixes/cleanups.
191     Removed try() out of init.d/runscript.sh (why was this here ?).
192    
193     14 Nov 2001; Martin Schlemmer (azarah@gentoo.org): init.d/bootmisc: Now
194 drobbins 1.15 cleans /tmp. Also creates /etc/resolv.conf if it doesn't exist.
195 drobbins 1.8
196 drobbins 1.15 init.d/hostname: Added check for a valid /etc/hostname.
197 drobbins 1.8
198 drobbins 1.15 init.d/keymaps: Added check for valid $KEYMAP.
199 drobbins 1.8
200 drobbins 1.15 init.d/modules: Added sysklogd, metalog, syslog-ng as 'use' deps. This
201     should solve Woodchip's syslog+glue issue. We just have to change the
202     console loglevel for metalog and syslog-ng (sysklogd already updated) not to
203     output info and warnings, etc to the console, then boot will be much cleaner.
204     Also the install guide will need changing to add the loggers to 'boot' and
205     not 'default' runlevel.
206 drobbins 1.8
207 drobbins 1.15 init.d/mountall.test: Hopefully updated to the new rc-scripts style. Is
208     this really needed (I cannot see that it is used anywhere ...)?
209 drobbins 1.8
210     13 Nov 2001; Martin Schlemmer (azarah@gentoo.org): Updated
211 drobbins 1.15 init.d/runscript.sh, init.d/depscan.sh and sbin/rc with a new depend called
212     'uses'. It basically have the same usage as 'need', except that it do not
213     start services that is not in the current and 'boot' runlevels.
214 drobbins 1.8
215 drobbins 1.15 Updated init.d/netmount to use the 'uses' depend.
216 drobbins 1.8
217     11 Nov 2001; Martin Schlemmer (azarah@gentoo.org): Fixed init.d/runscript.sh
218     not to destroy the 'need' depends in /${svcdir}/need. This caused subsequent
219     starting and stopping of services not to start depends.
220    
221     7 Nov 2001; Martin Schlemmer (azarah@gentoo.org): Fixed a problem in sbin/rc
222     where the ${svcdir}/softscripts directory got destroyed before stopping
223     running services scheduled to be stopped. This with the fact that $SOFTLEVEL
224     was set too early, caused the services to be stopped in the wrong order.
225    
226     30 Oct 2001; Martin Schlemmer (azarah@gentoo.org): Modified init.d/netmount to
227     check if any network filesystems is mounted.
228    
229     29 Oct 2001; init.d/netmount: umount -art doesn't seem to work, so I added
230     some awk and grep magic to find all remote filesystems and umount them.
231    
232     29 Oct 2001; Martin Schlemmer (azarah@gentoo.org): A fix for checkroot
233     (missing "/"); it now actually checks the root filesystem. Also, a
234     localmount cleanliness fix.
235 drobbins 1.6

252     *init.d/runscript.sh, others
253     Handling of "net" dependencies resolve to all net devices in

275    
276     *sbin/init, init.d/checkroot
277     We're going back to a /proc/mounts-based mtab symlink because it's
