4    
5 azarah 1.41 26 Feb 2002; Martin Schlemmer <azarah@gentoo.org>: fix my brain dead
6     update of the 25th. It really should keep "gentoo=nodevfs" in mind.
7     Also added 'get_bootparam()' to help in retrieving kernel options.
8     Updated /etc/init.d/functions.sh, /etc/init.d/checkroot and /sbin/rc
9     for this.
10    
11     Updated /etc/init.d/consolefont to work without devfs as well.
12    
13 azarah 1.40 25 Feb 2002; Martin Schlemmer <azarah@gentoo.org>: added a check if
14     /dev is mounted when creating entries for /etc/mtab. This should solve a
15     invalid entry or /dev being mounted even with 'gentoo=nodevfs' option.
16     Updated /etc/init.d/checkroot for this.
17    
18 drobbins 1.39 17 Feb 2002: Daniel Robbins <drobbins@gentoo.org>: Made "xfs" the default
19     filesystem in /etc/fstab (from ReiserFS) and removed "notail" option (it's
20     just in a comment now)
21    
22     17 Feb 2002: Martin Schlemmer (azarah@gentoo.org): more fixes to 'after' and
23     'before', updated /etc/init.d/runscript.sh for this. This should fix
24     services not getting started in the correct order in a tight loop, services
25     getting stopped out of order, and some other sanity checks. Updated
26     rc-script.sh for updated help.
27    
28     15 Feb 2002: Martin Schlemmer (azarah@gentoo.org): update /etc/profile to
29     resolve bug #588. Reimplemented things a bit, and added the 'after' type.
30     'before' and 'after' will only work currently for a change of runlevel.
31     Updated /etc/init.d/depscan.sh, /etc/init.d/runscript.sh and /sbin/rc for it.
32 azarah 1.36
33 drobbins 1.39 13 Feb 2002: Martin Schlemmer (azarah@gentoo.org): add some more entries to
34     /etc/devfsd.conf to make alsa users life easier ... thanks Tod.
35    
36     12 Feb 2002: Martin Schlemmer (azarah@gentoo.org): Some more cleanups to
37     /etc/init.d/depscan.sh and /etc/init.d/runscript.sh.
38 azarah 1.36
39     Fixed some services not starting again when restarting a service.
40     Seems simple is still the best way.
41    
42     Fixed some other problems created with feature additions and cleanups.
43    
44 drobbins 1.39 11 Feb 2002: Martin Schlemmer (azarah@gentoo.org): General cleanups to
45     /etc/init.d/depscan.sh and /etc/init.d/runscript.sh.
46 azarah 1.36
47     Added 'before *' to /etc/init.d/checkroot to make sure it gets
48     started first.
49    
50     Added 'use *' to /etc/init.d/local to make sure it gets started
51     last.
52    
53     10 Feb 2002: Martin Schlemmer (azarah@gentoo.org): Fixed /sbin/rc
54     to stop a service on change of runlevel if it is in 'use' by
55     another service.
56    
57     Added the 'provide' depend type for creating virtual services.
58     Updated /etc/init.d/depscan.sh for this.
59    
60     Added the 'before' depend type. This is more for changing the
61     order services start in. Updated /etc/init.d/depscan.sh and
62     /etc/init.d/functions.sh for this.
63    
64     Updated /etc/init.d/depscan.sh to work with '*' as argument for
65     dependancy types. This can be used with 'use' and 'before' to
66     start a script last or first respectively.
67    
68     Added save_options() and get_options() to /etc/init.d/functions.sh
69     for saving misc settings between startup/shutdown. Updated
70     /etc/init.d/net.eth0 to use these and properly down virtual
71     interfaces.
72    
73     6 Feb 2002: Martin Schlemmer (azarah@gentoo.org): updated both
74     /etc/init.d/bootmisc and /etc/init.d/keymaps to be quiet on no
75     errors.
76    
77     * rc-scripts 1.2.6 (6 Feb 2002)
78    
79 azarah 1.35 2 Feb 2002: Martin Schlemmer (azarah@gentoo.org): updated /etc/net.eth0
80     to specify the gateway device via the $gateway variable (something like
81     gateway="eth0/192.168.0.1").
82    
83 azarah 1.34 2 Feb 2002: Martin Schlemmer (azarah@gentoo.org): added rc-script
84     /etc/init.d/numlock, for enabling numlock at boot.
85    
86 azarah 1.33 29 Jan 2002: Martin Schlemmer (azarah@gentoo.org): hopefully the
87     last fix to /etc/init.d/netmount to umount cleanly. This fix
88     implements a retry if not successful the first time, and will
89     kill processess using the mount. Also small type-o fix to
90     /etc/init.d/halt.sh.
91    
92 woodchip 1.32 27 Jan 2002: Donny Davies (woodchip@gentoo.org): security fix to
93     /etc/pam.d/sshd,login,chsh: added pam_shells.so to the stack.
94     Fixed /etc/passwd,group for user/group mysql.
95    
96 azarah 1.31 27 Jan 2002: Martin Schlemmer (azarah@gentoo.org): added charset
97     map file support to /etc/init.d/consolefont and the setting to
98     /etc/rc.conf.
99    
100 azarah 1.30 25 Jan 2002: Martin Schlemmer (azarah@gentoo.org): fixed dircolors
101     in skel files to support both versions of dircolors.
102    
103 azarah 1.28 23 Jan 2002: Martin Schlemmer (azarah@gentoo.org): fixed bug
104 azarah 1.31 in the restart stuff of /etc/init.d/runscript.sh that caused
105     a restart of a 'net' service not to restart services again
106     that depended on it.
107 azarah 1.28
108 azarah 1.27 * rc-scripts 1.2.5 (20 Jan 2002)
109    
110 azarah 1.26 20 Jan 2002: Martin Schlemmer (azarah@gentoo.org): updated
111     /etc/init.d/net.eth0 to 'use' pcmcia.
112    
113 azarah 1.25 8 Jan 2002: Martin Schlemmer (azarah@gentoo.org): added '--sh' to
114     the dircolors command in /etc/skel/.bash_profile to handle cases
115     where bash do not export $SHELL.
116    
117     6 Jan 2002: Martin Schlemmer (azarah@gentoo.org): updated
118     /etc/init.d/runscripts.sh, /etc/init.d/net.eth0, /etc/conf.d/net and
119     removed /etc/init.d/net.eth0-dhcp to reflect a new 'bsd-ish' config
120     scheme for the net.eth* scripts.
121    
122 woodchip 1.24 6 Jan 2002: Donny Davies (woodchip@gentoo.org): Removed email address
123     from manpages; no need for that..
124 azarah 1.25
125     5 Jan 2002: Martin Schlemmer (azarah@gentoo.org): fix type-o in
126     /etc/devfsd.conf; had 'dvd' in the cdrw stuff.
127 woodchip 1.24
128 drobbins 1.23 * rc-scripts 1.2.4 (30 Dec 2001)
129    
130     30 Dec 2001: Daniel Robbins (drobbins@gentoo.org): Changed default umask
131     back to 022 as it should be.
132    
133 azarah 1.22 30 Dec 2001; Martin Schlemmer (azarah@gentoo.org): Updated
134     /etc/init.d/checkfs to return 0 if the fs was successfully repaired.
135    
136 woodchip 1.21 29 Dec 2001; Donny Davies (woodchip@gentoo.org):
137     sort -t: -k3,3 -n /etc/passwd,group. Ahhhh :))
138    
139 azarah 1.20 28 Dec 2001; Martin Schlemmer (azarah@gentoo.org); Updated
140     /etc/init.d/depscan.sh to store info about missing dependancies of
141     type 'need' in ${svcdir}/broken. Also updated /etc/init.d/runscript.sh
142     to use this when starting a script ('need' dependancies is critical for
143     startup). Added the broken() function to /etc/init.d/runscript.sh
144     to list the missing dependancies.
145    
146     Updated /etc/init.d/runscript.sh for svc_start() to have better error
147     checking.
148    
149     Updated /etc/init.d/functions.sh with ewend(), which is the same as
150     eend(), but print a warning on error, not a error. Updated
151     /etc/init.d/checkroot and /etc/init.d/checkfs to use this function.
152    
153     27 Dec 2001; Martin Schlemmer (azarah@gentoo.org); Update /sbin/runscript.c
154     to run /etc/init.d/rc-help.sh if no arguments is passed to a rc-script.
155    
156     Added /etc/init.d/rc-help.sh, simple script that prints out help for
157     the rc-scripts.
158    
159 azarah 1.19 25 Dec 2001; Martin Schlemmer (azarah@gentoo.org); Update
160     /etc/init.d/shutdown.sh and /etc/init.d/reboot.sh not to force the
161     halt and reboot. This fixes a problem where / was not unmounted
162     properly in some cases.
163    
164     24 Dec 2001; Martin Schlemmer (azarah@gentoo.org): Move $svcdir to
165     to /etc/init.d/functions.sh, and update /etc/init.d/runscript.sh and
166     /etc/init.d/depscan.sh for this
167    
168     Modified /etc/init.d/runscript.sh to also restart the services that
169     depend on a service if that service is restarted. Enhanced the
170     restart function to be able to have custom restart() functions in
171     rc-scripts. The custom restart() have to use svc_stop() and
172     svc_start() to restart the service.
173    
174     Add a pause function to /etc/init.d/runscript.sh. It will basically
175     stop a service without stopping the services that depends on that
176     service.
177 drobbins 1.23
178     Add a pause function to /etc/init.d/runscript.sh. It will basically stop a
179     service without stopping the services that depends on that service.
180 azarah 1.19
181     * rc-scripts 1.2.3 (18 Dec 2001)
182    
183     16 Dec 2001; Martin Schlemmer (azarah@gentoo.org): Moved the stuff from
184     /sbin/init (old) to /sbin/rc (basically drop the init wrapper we used).
185    
186     Some cleanups: take out the shm resize comment;
187    
188     remove the $wrongmount;
189    
190     remove the mountshm() function and insert it directly
191     where needed;
192    
193     remove the setting of $PATH as /sbin/init already do
194     this for us.
195    
196     Added the if statement to detect if it is the first time the 'boot'
197     runlevel is executed (if [ "$RUNLEVEL" = "S" ] && [ "$argv1" = "boot" ]).
198     $RUNLEVEL is a env var set by /sbin/init.
199    
200     Also added functionality to detect if the kernel have DEVFS support
201     compiled in; seems new users thinks devfs is unstable and as they do
202     not always read the docs, it does not get compiled in ;/ Should
203     make live for us a bit easier.
204    
205     14 Dec 2001; Martin Schlemmer (azarah@gentoo.org): Fixed /sbin/rc to kill
206     a cosmetic bug in the part that stops all the unneeded services.
207    
208 woodchip 1.16 * rc-scripts 1.2.2 (8 Dec 2001)
209    
210 azarah 1.18 10 Dec 2001; Added a localhost entry in /etc/hosts.
211    
212 woodchip 1.16 8 Dec 2001; Donny Davies (woodchip@gentoo.org): Added start-stop-daemon.c
213     to rc-scripts/sbin source. Moved rc-scripts/init.d/runscript.c to
214     rc-scripts/sbin/runscript.c. Added manpage for start-stop-daemon.
215     Start-stop-daemon is moved here from sysvinit by the way. There is stuff
216     in this ChangeLog that needs to be removed! Like the changes to hosts,
217     profile. /etc/{passwd,group} have minor UID and GID type fixes for
218 woodchip 1.17 users ftp, postgres, xfs. Tweaked tarball.sh to not include CVS
219     directories.
220 woodchip 1.16
221 woodchip 1.13 29 Nov 2001; Donny Davies (woodchip@gentoo.org): Added a man directory
222     to rc-scripts. Checked in two manpages there, one for modules.autoload.5
223 woodchip 1.14 and one for update-modules.8. These were adapted from Debian. Updated
224     tarball.sh to include the new man directory. Updated baselayout to install
225     these manpages. Slightly tweak the /etc/modules.autoload comments.
226 woodchip 1.13
227 drobbins 1.15 28 Nov 2001; Martin Schlemmer (azarah@gentoo.org): Updated /sbin/init
228     to work correctly with the 'gentoo=nodevfs' option, and cleaned
229     out old code.
230    
231     Updated /etc/init.d/bootmisc with additional lock files to clean.
232    
233     27 Nov 2001; Martin Schlemmer (azarah@gentoo.org): Updated
234     /etc/init.d/depscan.sh for a virtual 'use' depend, called 'logger'
235     that can be used for services that needs to have a logger started
236     before they are started. Updated /etc/conf.d/basic with $SYSLOGGER
237     that is used to define what loggers the 'logger' depend represent.
238    
239     26 Nov 2001; Martin Schlemmer (azarah@gentoo.org): Updated
240     /etc/passwd and /etc/group with minor fixes to pass pwck and grpck.
241    
242     25 Nov 2001; Martin Schlemmer (azarah@gentoo.org): Changed umask in
243     /etc/profile for the user to 077 for security.
244    
245     Added a stop() function to /etc/init.d/clock. Also removed uneeded
246     'source /etc/rc.conf' line.
247    
248     Updated /etc/init.d/hostname to set the hostname to 'localhost' if
249     /etc/hostname is invalid.
250    
251     Updated /sbin/init to move the entries in /lib/dev-state to /dev before
252     running devfsd, as it did still not save settings properly. Also removed
253     old /dev-state/compat stuff.
254    
255 drobbins 1.12 25 Nov 2001; ncsd, the name service cache daemon script, has been removed
256     from the default "default" runlevel. It still exists in the archive so that
257 drobbins 1.15 users who want/need it can add it easily.
258 drobbins 1.12
259 drobbins 1.11 25 Nov 2001; Updated the /etc/fstab; removed usbdevfs (explicitly mounted),
260 drobbins 1.15 removed notail from the ext2 boot partition, other cleanups.
261 drobbins 1.11
262 drobbins 1.10 25 Nov 2001; Fixed init.d/clock script to work in UTC mode.
263 drobbins 1.15
264     24 Nov 2001; Martin Schlemmer (azarah@gentoo.org): Added /etc/devfsd.conf
265     and updated /sbin/init to use a new scheme for saving /dev permissions.
266     Also moved /dev-state to /lib/dev-state which is a more standard location.
267    
268     Fixed a ugly bug in /etc/init.d/depscan.sh. If a service depended on
269     itself, calling depscan.sh or changing runlevels cause a tempory effect
270     similar to a 'mini fork bomb'. Afterwards the depends was broken, and
271     changing runlevels did not want to work.
272    
273     Updated /etc/init.d/halt.sh to terminate and display message for devfsd.
274     More cosmetic than anything else, but cant hurt with the new dev-state
275     scheme.
276    
277     Updated /sbin/init to set the console log level to 1, so that bootup
278     can be much cleaner. Also updated /etc/init.d/modules not to have
279     a logger in it 'use' depends, as it should not be needed anymore.
280    
281     Updated /sbin/rc to check if devfsd is still running between runlevel
282     changes.
283    
284     Updated /etc/init.d/modules to run update-modules. We want to be sure
285     /etc/modules.conf is updated when running depmod -a.
286    
287     Change ftp's uid to 21 in /etc/passwd (was the same as bind). Also
288     added a entry for xfs (X Font Server) in /etc/passwd and /etc/group.
289    
290     Added /etc/init.d/net.ppp0, /etc/conf.d/net.ppp0 and
291     /usr/lib/ppp/chat-default as part of my new pppd scripts. Also
292     updated tarball.sh to handle ppp/chat-default.
293    
294 azarah 1.19 Added /etc/skel/.bash* to make things cleaner.
295 drobbins 1.15
296 azarah 1.19 Other minor changes.
297 drobbins 1.15
298 woodchip 1.9 17 Nov 2001; Donny Davies (woodchip@gentoo.org): Added /etc/shells file
299     to rc-scripts. Can remove it from sys-libs/shadow at the next release.
300    
301 drobbins 1.8 * rc-scripts 1.1.8 (15 Nov 2001)
302    
303     16 Nov 2001; removed bogus "mountall.test" script.
304 drobbins 1.7
305 drobbins 1.8 15 Nov 2001; Martin Schlemmer (azarah@gentoo.org): Updated
306     init.d/{runscript.sh,depscan.sh}, sbin/rc to the new dep being 'use' not
307     'uses', as it fits better with 'need' (not 'needs'). Also removed unneeded
308     for loop from init.d/depscan.sh, and other fixes. Updated names of new
309     functions in init.d/runscript.sh to better sounding ones. Updated
310     init.d/modules, init.d/netmount to use 'use'. Lots of other fixes/cleanups.
311     Removed try() out of init.d/runscript.sh (why was this here ?).
312    
313     14 Nov 2001; Martin Schlemmer (azarah@gentoo.org): init.d/bootmisc: Now
314 drobbins 1.15 cleans /tmp. Also creates /etc/resolv.conf if it doesn't exist.
315 drobbins 1.8
316 drobbins 1.15 init.d/hostname: Added check for a valid /etc/hostname.
317 drobbins 1.8
318 drobbins 1.15 init.d/keymaps: Added check for valid $KEYMAP.
319 drobbins 1.8
320 drobbins 1.15 init.d/modules: Added sysklogd, metalog, syslog-ng as 'use' deps. This
321     should solve Woodchip's syslog+glue issue. We just have to change the
322     console loglevel for metalog and syslog-ng (sysklogd already updated) not to
323     output info and warnings, etc to the console, then boot will be much cleaner.
324     Also the install guide will need changing to add the loggers to 'boot' and
325     not 'default' runlevel.
326 drobbins 1.8
327 drobbins 1.15 init.d/mountall.test: Hopefully updated to the new rc-scripts style. Is
328     this really needed (I cannot see that it is used anywhere ...)?
329 drobbins 1.8
330     13 Nov 2001; Martin Schlemmer (azarah@gentoo.org): Updated
331 drobbins 1.15 init.d/runscript.sh, init.d/depscan.sh and sbin/rc with a new depend called
332     'uses'. It basically have the same usage as 'need', except that it do not
333     start services that is not in the current and 'boot' runlevels.
334 drobbins 1.8
335 drobbins 1.15 Updated init.d/netmount to use the 'uses' depend.
336 drobbins 1.8
337     11 Nov 2001; Martin Schlemmer (azarah@gentoo.org): Fixed init.d/runscript.sh
338     not to destroy the 'need' depends in /${svcdir}/need. This caused subsequent
339     starting and stopping of services not to start depends.
340    
341     7 Nov 2001; Martin Schlemmer (azarah@gentoo.org): Fixed a problem in sbin/rc
342     where the ${svcdir}/softscripts directory got destroyed before stopping
343     running services scheduled to be stopped. This with the fact that $SOFTLEVEL
344     was set too early, caused the services to be stopped in the wrong order.
345    
346     30 Oct 2001; Martin Schlemmer (azarah@gentoo.org): Modified init.d/netmount to
347     check if any network filesystems is mounted.
348    
349     29 Oct 2001; init.d/netmount: umount -art doesn't seem to work, so I added
350     some awk and grep magic to find all remote filesystems and umount them.
351    
352     29 Oct 2001; Martin Schlemmer (azarah@gentoo.org): A fix for checkroot
353     (missing "/"); it now actually checks the root filesystem. Also, a
354     localmount cleanliness fix.
355 drobbins 1.6

393     New and better looking informational message functions (einfo, einfon).
