1 drobbins 1.6 # ChangeLog for Gentoo Linux System Intialization ("rc") scripts

4    
5 azarah 1.49 * rc-scripts 1.2.8 (4 March 2002)
6    
7     4 March 2002; Martin Schlemmer <azarah@gentoo.org>: add /etc/init.d/xdm,
8     /etc/X11/startDM.sh and updated /etc/inittab to fix the "dead key"
9     problem we had with xdm/gdm/kdm. We should move them to the
10     xfree ebuild later on when things settles down.
11    
12     Added some sanity checks to /sbin/rc, /etc/init.d/runscripts.sh.
13    
14     Added a basic $PATH to /etc/init.d/functions.sh to fix a problem
15     where we had a invalid $PATH on boot in some cases.
16    
17 azarah 1.50 Updated /etc/init.d/keymap and /etc/init.d/consolefont to work with
18     the new sys-apps/kbd package.
19    
20 azarah 1.48 * rc-scripts 1.2.7 (3 March 2002)
21    
22 azarah 1.47 3 March 2002; Martin Schlemmer <azarah@gentoo.org>: fixed the problem
23     of rc-scripts trying to start/stop a service multiple times if it
24     fails to do so. Updated /etc/init.d/runscript.sh and /sbin/rc for
25     this.
26    
27     Fixing some variable declarations in /etc/init.d/runscript.sh caused
28     /etc/init.d/net.lo to fail on stop ($IFACE was set invalid). Fixed
29     this.
30    
31     Added caching of the "depend() { need foo; } " lines, and updated
32     /etc/init.d/depscan.sh to touch the actual files less. This should
33     speedup dependancy caching a lot, especially on slow machines.
34 azarah 1.48
35     Updated /etc/passwd to have users with no shell defined, use /bin/false
36     for security.
37    
38     Update /etc/fstab to mention /dev/shm since we dont mount it anymore.
39 azarah 1.47
40     1 March 2002; Martin Schlemmer <azarah@gentoo.org>: added a wrapper for
41 azarah 1.46 sourcing the rc-scripts to eliminate syntax errors. Thanks to
42     Karl Trygve Kalleberg (aka karltk) for the idea. Updated
43     /etc/init.d/depscan.sh, /etc/init.d/functions.sh and
44     /etc/init.d/runscript.sh for this (added wrap_rcscript() function).
45    
46     Removed stopping of dependant services that have current service as
47     a 'use'dependancy ... should be less confusing now.
48     Updated /etc/init.d/runscript.sh for this.
49    
50 azarah 1.45 28 Feb 2002; Martin Schlemmer <azarah@gentoo.org>: add /etc/conf.d/local.start
51     and /etc/conf.d/local.stop for adding any misc programs to startup. This
52     should pretty much have /etc/init.d/ static, except for baselayout updates,
53     etc.
54    
55 azarah 1.43 27 Feb 2002; Martin Schlemmer <azarah@gentoo.org>: in some wierd cases,
56 azarah 1.44 a redundent /dev/.devfsd on a unmounted /dev can cause problems. Fixed
57     this in /sbin/rc.
58    
59     Added the patches from Grant Goodyear (aka g2boojum) to enable us to
60     use a ramdisk to store the contents of ${svcdir}. Updated /sbin/rc,
61     /etc/init.d/functions.sh and /etc/init.d/checkroot for this.
62 azarah 1.43
63 azarah 1.41 26 Feb 2002; Martin Schlemmer <azarah@gentoo.org>: fix my brain dead
64     update of the 25th. It really should keep "gentoo=nodevfs" in mind.
65     Also added 'get_bootparam()' to help in retrieving kernel options.
66     Updated /etc/init.d/functions.sh, /etc/init.d/checkroot and /sbin/rc
67     for this.
68    
69     Updated /etc/init.d/consolefont to work without devfs as well.
70    
71 azarah 1.42 When rebooting or shutting down, a service should not fail to stop
72     if a service it depends on, fails. Updated /etc/init.d/runscript.sh
73     for this.
74    
75 azarah 1.40 25 Feb 2002; Martin Schlemmer <azarah@gentoo.org>: added a check if
76     /dev is mounted when creating entries for /etc/mtab. This should solve a
77     invalid entry or /dev being mounted even with 'gentoo=nodevfs' option.
78     Updated /etc/init.d/checkroot for this.
79    
80 drobbins 1.39 17 Feb 2002: Daniel Robbins <drobbins@gentoo.org>: Made "xfs" the default
81     filesystem in /etc/fstab (from ReiserFS) and removed "notail" option (it's
82     just in a comment now)
83    
84     17 Feb 2002: Martin Schlemmer (azarah@gentoo.org): more fixes to 'after' and
85     'before', updated /etc/init.d/runscript.sh for this. This should fix
86     services not getting started in the correct order in a tight loop, services
87     getting stopped out of order, and some other sanity checks. Updated
88     rc-script.sh for updated help.
89    
90     15 Feb 2002: Martin Schlemmer (azarah@gentoo.org): update /etc/profile to
91     resolve bug #588. Reimplemented things a bit, and added the 'after' type.
92     'before' and 'after' will only work currently for a change of runlevel.
93     Updated /etc/init.d/depscan.sh, /etc/init.d/runscript.sh and /sbin/rc for it.
94 azarah 1.36
95 drobbins 1.39 13 Feb 2002: Martin Schlemmer (azarah@gentoo.org): add some more entries to
96     /etc/devfsd.conf to make alsa users life easier ... thanks Tod.
97    
98     12 Feb 2002: Martin Schlemmer (azarah@gentoo.org): Some more cleanups to
99     /etc/init.d/depscan.sh and /etc/init.d/runscript.sh.
100 azarah 1.36
101     Fixed some services not starting again when restarting a service.
102     Seems simple is still the best way.
103    
104     Fixed some other problems created with feature additions and cleanups.
105    
106 drobbins 1.39 11 Feb 2002: Martin Schlemmer (azarah@gentoo.org): General cleanups to
107     /etc/init.d/depscan.sh and /etc/init.d/runscript.sh.
108 azarah 1.36
109     Added 'before *' to /etc/init.d/checkroot to make sure it gets
110     started first.
111    
112     Added 'use *' to /etc/init.d/local to make sure it gets started
113     last.
114    
115     10 Feb 2002: Martin Schlemmer (azarah@gentoo.org): Fixed /sbin/rc
116     to stop a service on change of runlevel if it is in 'use' by
117     another service.
118    
119     Added the 'provide' depend type for creating virtual services.
120     Updated /etc/init.d/depscan.sh for this.
121    
122     Added the 'before' depend type. This is more for changing the
123     order services start in. Updated /etc/init.d/depscan.sh and
124     /etc/init.d/functions.sh for this.
125    
126     Updated /etc/init.d/depscan.sh to work with '*' as argument for
127     dependancy types. This can be used with 'use' and 'before' to
128     start a script last or first respectively.
129    
130     Added save_options() and get_options() to /etc/init.d/functions.sh
131     for saving misc settings between startup/shutdown. Updated
132     /etc/init.d/net.eth0 to use these and properly down virtual
133     interfaces.
134    
135     6 Feb 2002: Martin Schlemmer (azarah@gentoo.org): updated both
136     /etc/init.d/bootmisc and /etc/init.d/keymaps to be quiet on no
137     errors.
138    
139     * rc-scripts 1.2.6 (6 Feb 2002)
140    
141 azarah 1.35 2 Feb 2002: Martin Schlemmer (azarah@gentoo.org): updated /etc/net.eth0
142     to specify the gateway device via the $gateway variable (something like
143     gateway="eth0/192.168.0.1").
144    
145 azarah 1.34 2 Feb 2002: Martin Schlemmer (azarah@gentoo.org): added rc-script
146     /etc/init.d/numlock, for enabling numlock at boot.
147    
148 azarah 1.33 29 Jan 2002: Martin Schlemmer (azarah@gentoo.org): hopefully the
149     last fix to /etc/init.d/netmount to umount cleanly. This fix
150     implements a retry if not successful the first time, and will
151     kill processess using the mount. Also small type-o fix to
152     /etc/init.d/halt.sh.
153    
154 woodchip 1.32 27 Jan 2002: Donny Davies (woodchip@gentoo.org): security fix to
155     /etc/pam.d/sshd,login,chsh: added pam_shells.so to the stack.
156     Fixed /etc/passwd,group for user/group mysql.
157    
158 azarah 1.31 27 Jan 2002: Martin Schlemmer (azarah@gentoo.org): added charset
159     map file support to /etc/init.d/consolefont and the setting to
160     /etc/rc.conf.
161    
162 azarah 1.30 25 Jan 2002: Martin Schlemmer (azarah@gentoo.org): fixed dircolors
163     in skel files to support both versions of dircolors.
164    
165 azarah 1.28 23 Jan 2002: Martin Schlemmer (azarah@gentoo.org): fixed bug
166 azarah 1.31 in the restart stuff of /etc/init.d/runscript.sh that caused
167     a restart of a 'net' service not to restart services again
168     that depended on it.
169 azarah 1.28
170 azarah 1.27 * rc-scripts 1.2.5 (20 Jan 2002)
171    
172 azarah 1.26 20 Jan 2002: Martin Schlemmer (azarah@gentoo.org): updated
173     /etc/init.d/net.eth0 to 'use' pcmcia.
174    
175 azarah 1.25 8 Jan 2002: Martin Schlemmer (azarah@gentoo.org): added '--sh' to
176     the dircolors command in /etc/skel/.bash_profile to handle cases
177     where bash do not export $SHELL.
178    
179     6 Jan 2002: Martin Schlemmer (azarah@gentoo.org): updated
180     /etc/init.d/runscripts.sh, /etc/init.d/net.eth0, /etc/conf.d/net and
181     removed /etc/init.d/net.eth0-dhcp to reflect a new 'bsd-ish' config
182     scheme for the net.eth* scripts.
183    
184 woodchip 1.24 6 Jan 2002: Donny Davies (woodchip@gentoo.org): Removed email address
185     from manpages; no need for that..
186 azarah 1.25
187     5 Jan 2002: Martin Schlemmer (azarah@gentoo.org): fix type-o in
188     /etc/devfsd.conf; had 'dvd' in the cdrw stuff.
189 woodchip 1.24
190 drobbins 1.23 * rc-scripts 1.2.4 (30 Dec 2001)
191    
192     30 Dec 2001: Daniel Robbins (drobbins@gentoo.org): Changed default umask
193     back to 022 as it should be.
194    
195 azarah 1.22 30 Dec 2001; Martin Schlemmer (azarah@gentoo.org): Updated
196     /etc/init.d/checkfs to return 0 if the fs was successfully repaired.
197    
198 woodchip 1.21 29 Dec 2001; Donny Davies (woodchip@gentoo.org):
199     sort -t: -k3,3 -n /etc/passwd,group. Ahhhh :))
200    
201 azarah 1.20 28 Dec 2001; Martin Schlemmer (azarah@gentoo.org); Updated
202     /etc/init.d/depscan.sh to store info about missing dependancies of
203     type 'need' in ${svcdir}/broken. Also updated /etc/init.d/runscript.sh
204     to use this when starting a script ('need' dependancies is critical for
205     startup). Added the broken() function to /etc/init.d/runscript.sh
206     to list the missing dependancies.
207    
208     Updated /etc/init.d/runscript.sh for svc_start() to have better error
209     checking.
210    
211     Updated /etc/init.d/functions.sh with ewend(), which is the same as
212     eend(), but print a warning on error, not a error. Updated
213     /etc/init.d/checkroot and /etc/init.d/checkfs to use this function.
214    
215     27 Dec 2001; Martin Schlemmer (azarah@gentoo.org); Update /sbin/runscript.c
216     to run /etc/init.d/rc-help.sh if no arguments is passed to a rc-script.
217    
218     Added /etc/init.d/rc-help.sh, simple script that prints out help for
219     the rc-scripts.
220    
221 azarah 1.19 25 Dec 2001; Martin Schlemmer (azarah@gentoo.org); Update
222     /etc/init.d/shutdown.sh and /etc/init.d/reboot.sh not to force the
223     halt and reboot. This fixes a problem where / was not unmounted
224     properly in some cases.
225    
226     24 Dec 2001; Martin Schlemmer (azarah@gentoo.org): Move $svcdir to
227     to /etc/init.d/functions.sh, and update /etc/init.d/runscript.sh and
228     /etc/init.d/depscan.sh for this
229    
230     Modified /etc/init.d/runscript.sh to also restart the services that
231     depend on a service if that service is restarted. Enhanced the
232     restart function to be able to have custom restart() functions in
233     rc-scripts. The custom restart() have to use svc_stop() and
234     svc_start() to restart the service.
235    
236     Add a pause function to /etc/init.d/runscript.sh. It will basically
237     stop a service without stopping the services that depends on that
238     service.
239 drobbins 1.23
240     Add a pause function to /etc/init.d/runscript.sh. It will basically stop a
241     service without stopping the services that depends on that service.
242 azarah 1.19
243     * rc-scripts 1.2.3 (18 Dec 2001)
244    
245     16 Dec 2001; Martin Schlemmer (azarah@gentoo.org): Moved the stuff from
246     /sbin/init (old) to /sbin/rc (basically drop the init wrapper we used).
247    
248     Some cleanups: take out the shm resize comment;
249    
250     remove the $wrongmount;
251    
252     remove the mountshm() function and insert it directly
253     where needed;
254    
255     remove the setting of $PATH as /sbin/init already do
256     this for us.
257    
258     Added the if statement to detect if it is the first time the 'boot'
259     runlevel is executed (if [ "$RUNLEVEL" = "S" ] && [ "$argv1" = "boot" ]).
260     $RUNLEVEL is a env var set by /sbin/init.
261    
262     Also added functionality to detect if the kernel have DEVFS support
263     compiled in; seems new users thinks devfs is unstable and as they do
264     not always read the docs, it does not get compiled in ;/ Should
265     make live for us a bit easier.
266    
267     14 Dec 2001; Martin Schlemmer (azarah@gentoo.org): Fixed /sbin/rc to kill
268     a cosmetic bug in the part that stops all the unneeded services.
269    
270 woodchip 1.16 * rc-scripts 1.2.2 (8 Dec 2001)
271    
272 azarah 1.18 10 Dec 2001; Added a localhost entry in /etc/hosts.
273    
274 woodchip 1.16 8 Dec 2001; Donny Davies (woodchip@gentoo.org): Added start-stop-daemon.c
275     to rc-scripts/sbin source. Moved rc-scripts/init.d/runscript.c to
276     rc-scripts/sbin/runscript.c. Added manpage for start-stop-daemon.
277     Start-stop-daemon is moved here from sysvinit by the way. There is stuff
278     in this ChangeLog that needs to be removed! Like the changes to hosts,
279     profile. /etc/{passwd,group} have minor UID and GID type fixes for
280 woodchip 1.17 users ftp, postgres, xfs. Tweaked tarball.sh to not include CVS
281     directories.
282 woodchip 1.16
283 woodchip 1.13 29 Nov 2001; Donny Davies (woodchip@gentoo.org): Added a man directory
284     to rc-scripts. Checked in two manpages there, one for modules.autoload.5
285 woodchip 1.14 and one for update-modules.8. These were adapted from Debian. Updated
286     tarball.sh to include the new man directory. Updated baselayout to install
287     these manpages. Slightly tweak the /etc/modules.autoload comments.
288 woodchip 1.13
289 drobbins 1.15 28 Nov 2001; Martin Schlemmer (azarah@gentoo.org): Updated /sbin/init
290     to work correctly with the 'gentoo=nodevfs' option, and cleaned
291     out old code.
292    
293     Updated /etc/init.d/bootmisc with additional lock files to clean.
294    
295     27 Nov 2001; Martin Schlemmer (azarah@gentoo.org): Updated
296     /etc/init.d/depscan.sh for a virtual 'use' depend, called 'logger'
297     that can be used for services that needs to have a logger started
298     before they are started. Updated /etc/conf.d/basic with $SYSLOGGER
299     that is used to define what loggers the 'logger' depend represent.
300    
301     26 Nov 2001; Martin Schlemmer (azarah@gentoo.org): Updated
302     /etc/passwd and /etc/group with minor fixes to pass pwck and grpck.
303    
304     25 Nov 2001; Martin Schlemmer (azarah@gentoo.org): Changed umask in
305     /etc/profile for the user to 077 for security.
306    
307     Added a stop() function to /etc/init.d/clock. Also removed uneeded
308     'source /etc/rc.conf' line.
309    
310     Updated /etc/init.d/hostname to set the hostname to 'localhost' if
311     /etc/hostname is invalid.
312    
313     Updated /sbin/init to move the entries in /lib/dev-state to /dev before
314     running devfsd, as it did still not save settings properly. Also removed
315     old /dev-state/compat stuff.
316    
317 drobbins 1.12 25 Nov 2001; ncsd, the name service cache daemon script, has been removed
318     from the default "default" runlevel. It still exists in the archive so that
319 drobbins 1.15 users who want/need it can add it easily.
320 drobbins 1.12
321 drobbins 1.11 25 Nov 2001; Updated the /etc/fstab; removed usbdevfs (explicitly mounted),
322 drobbins 1.15 removed notail from the ext2 boot partition, other cleanups.
323 drobbins 1.11
324 drobbins 1.10 25 Nov 2001; Fixed init.d/clock script to work in UTC mode.
325 drobbins 1.15
326     24 Nov 2001; Martin Schlemmer (azarah@gentoo.org): Added /etc/devfsd.conf
327     and updated /sbin/init to use a new scheme for saving /dev permissions.
328     Also moved /dev-state to /lib/dev-state which is a more standard location.
329    
330     Fixed a ugly bug in /etc/init.d/depscan.sh. If a service depended on
331     itself, calling depscan.sh or changing runlevels cause a tempory effect
332     similar to a 'mini fork bomb'. Afterwards the depends was broken, and
333     changing runlevels did not want to work.
334    
335     Updated /etc/init.d/halt.sh to terminate and display message for devfsd.
336     More cosmetic than anything else, but cant hurt with the new dev-state
337     scheme.
338    
339     Updated /sbin/init to set the console log level to 1, so that bootup
340     can be much cleaner. Also updated /etc/init.d/modules not to have
341     a logger in it 'use' depends, as it should not be needed anymore.
342    
343     Updated /sbin/rc to check if devfsd is still running between runlevel
344     changes.
345    
346     Updated /etc/init.d/modules to run update-modules. We want to be sure
347     /etc/modules.conf is updated when running depmod -a.
348    
349     Change ftp's uid to 21 in /etc/passwd (was the same as bind). Also
350     added a entry for xfs (X Font Server) in /etc/passwd and /etc/group.
351    
352     Added /etc/init.d/net.ppp0, /etc/conf.d/net.ppp0 and
353     /usr/lib/ppp/chat-default as part of my new pppd scripts. Also
354     updated tarball.sh to handle ppp/chat-default.
355    
356 azarah 1.19 Added /etc/skel/.bash* to make things cleaner.
357 drobbins 1.15
358 azarah 1.19 Other minor changes.
359 drobbins 1.15
360 woodchip 1.9 17 Nov 2001; Donny Davies (woodchip@gentoo.org): Added /etc/shells file
361     to rc-scripts. Can remove it from sys-libs/shadow at the next release.
362    
363 drobbins 1.8 * rc-scripts 1.1.8 (15 Nov 2001)
364    
365     16 Nov 2001; removed bogus "mountall.test" script.
366 drobbins 1.7
367 drobbins 1.8 15 Nov 2001; Martin Schlemmer (azarah@gentoo.org): Updated
368     init.d/{runscript.sh,depscan.sh}, sbin/rc to the new dep being 'use' not
369     'uses', as it fits better with 'need' (not 'needs'). Also removed unneeded
370     for loop from init.d/depscan.sh, and other fixes. Updated names of new
371     functions in init.d/runscript.sh to better sounding ones. Updated
372     init.d/modules, init.d/netmount to use 'use'. Lots of other fixes/cleanups.
373     Removed try() out of init.d/runscript.sh (why was this here ?).
374    
375     14 Nov 2001; Martin Schlemmer (azarah@gentoo.org): init.d/bootmisc: Now
376 drobbins 1.15 cleans /tmp. Also creates /etc/resolv.conf if it doesn't exist.
377 drobbins 1.8
378 drobbins 1.15 init.d/hostname: Added check for a valid /etc/hostname.
379 drobbins 1.8
380 drobbins 1.15 init.d/keymaps: Added check for valid $KEYMAP.
381 drobbins 1.8
382 drobbins 1.15 init.d/modules: Added sysklogd, metalog, syslog-ng as 'use' deps. This
383     should solve Woodchip's syslog+glue issue. We just have to change the
384     console loglevel for metalog and syslog-ng (sysklogd already updated) not to
385     output info and warnings, etc to the console, then boot will be much cleaner.
386     Also the install guide will need changing to add the loggers to 'boot' and
387     not 'default' runlevel.
388 drobbins 1.8
389 drobbins 1.15 init.d/mountall.test: Hopefully updated to the new rc-scripts style. Is
390     this really needed (I cannot see that it is used anywhere ...)?
391 drobbins 1.8
392     13 Nov 2001; Martin Schlemmer (azarah@gentoo.org): Updated
393 drobbins 1.15 init.d/runscript.sh, init.d/depscan.sh and sbin/rc with a new depend called
394     'uses'. It basically have the same usage as 'need', except that it do not
395     start services that is not in the current and 'boot' runlevels.
396 drobbins 1.8
397 drobbins 1.15 Updated init.d/netmount to use the 'uses' depend.
398 drobbins 1.8
399     11 Nov 2001; Martin Schlemmer (azarah@gentoo.org): Fixed init.d/runscript.sh
400     not to destroy the 'need' depends in /${svcdir}/need. This caused subsequent
401     starting and stopping of services not to start depends.
402    
403     7 Nov 2001; Martin Schlemmer (azarah@gentoo.org): Fixed a problem in sbin/rc
404     where the ${svcdir}/softscripts directory got destroyed before stopping
405     running services scheduled to be stopped. This with the fact that $SOFTLEVEL
406     was set too early, caused the services to be stopped in the wrong order.
407    
408     30 Oct 2001; Martin Schlemmer (azarah@gentoo.org): Modified init.d/netmount to
409     check if any network filesystems is mounted.
410    
411     29 Oct 2001; init.d/netmount: umount -art doesn't seem to work, so I added
412     some awk and grep magic to find all remote filesystems and umount them.
413    
414     29 Oct 2001; Martin Schlemmer (azarah@gentoo.org): A fix for checkroot
415     (missing "/"); it now actually checks the root filesystem. Also, a
416     localmount cleanliness fix.

459     We're going back to a /proc/mounts-based mtab symlink because it's
460     just plain better. Appropriate changes made.
