7 The changes in this commit pertain primarily to
8 http://bugs.gentoo.org/show_bug.cgi?id=19695
9 http://bugs.gentoo.org/show_bug.cgi?id=35736
10
11 Specify routes as an array per interface, for example:
12 routes_eth0=(
13 "-net 10.1.0.0 netmask 255.255.0.0 gw 10.0.0.5"
14 "-net 10.2.0.0 netmask 255.255.0.0 gw 10.0.0.6"
15 "-host 10.3.0.1 dev eth0"
16 )
17
18 You can optionally use the gateway variable or just put the default route
19 in the routes variable. The following two are REDUNDANT:
20
21 routes_eth0=( "default gw 10.0.0.5" )
22 gateway="eth0/10.0.0.5"
23
24 Old configuration variables in /etc/conf.d/net are fully supported and
25 used transparently if ifconfig_eth0 is missing. In other words, this new
26 script is fully backward-compatible. However you can get rid of
27 iface_eth0, alias_eth0, broadcast_eth0 and netmask_eth0 if you want by
28 using the new syntax:
29
30 ifconfig_eth0=(
31 "10.0.0.6 broadcast 10.0.255.255 netmask 255.255.0.0"
32 "192.168.1.1 netmask 255.255.255.0"
33 "123.456.789.1"
34 )
35
36 Full backward compatibility so no danger to screwing up users relying on
37 existing /etc/conf.d/net setup
38
39 NET_DEBUG can be set in the environment for copious debugging output
40
41 Deprecate [ ] in favor of [[ ]] which has fewer quoting issues and
42 better functionality (and is even slightly faster)
43
44 Properly localize all variables, including variables returned by
45 setup_vars
46
47 Allow full options for every ifconfig command, both base address and
48 aliases via ifconfig_eth0, replacing the convoluted and less-functional
49 iface_eth0, alias_eth0, broadcast_eth0, netmask_eth0
50
51 Provide full support for static routes via routes_eth0
52
53 Fix potential quoting problems in setup_vars by using better eval syntax
54 instead of eval echo
55
56 Display IP addresses while configuring, both DHCP-retrieved and
57 statically set addresses
58
59 Collapse redundant caching of $? since eend returns $? again
60
61 Report when keeping kernel configuration for an interface along with IP
62 address gleaned
63
64 Don't reset the default gateway if it is already set correctly
65
66 Don't bind default gateway to particular interface when /sbin/route is
67 called so that it can survive if there is more than one interface on the
68 required subnet. (Old behavior can be obtained by setting
69 routes_eth0="default gw 1.2.3.4 dev eth0" if you really want it)
70
71 Don't bomb if default gateway can't be set since that doesn't
72 necessarily mean that the interface configuration is invalid.
73 (Old behavior was completely broken, but commented section
74 demonstrates how to do it right if necessary)
75
76 iface_stop no longer relies on configuration in /etc/conf.d/net AT ALL.
77 This is very good because it means you can put new configuration in
78 /etc/conf.d/net, then restart the interface and the old configuration will
79 be properly shut down.
80
81 iface_stop reports when it is releasing the DHCP lease
82
83* rc-scripts 1.4.3.13p1 (26 Feb 2004)
84
85 26 Feb 2004; Martin Schlemmer <azarah@gentoo.org>:
86
87 Remove /etc/DIR_COLORS, as coreutils provides it now.
88
89 Add RC_DEVICE_TARBALL to /etc/conf.d/rc to control use of device tarball.
90 Also modified /sbin/rc and /etc/init.d/halt.sh for this.
91
92 Start udevd if present.
93
94 Small fix to sbin/rc-services.sh related to mtime checking and 'net'
95 virtual service - it had no mtime generated, so check_mtime() failed
96 for it ...
97
98 25 Feb 2004; Martin Schlemmer <azarah@gentoo.org>:
99
100 Update to enable checking of mtimes on rc-scripts, and auto running
101 depscan.sh if needed. Also try to run depscan.sh when RC_GOT_DEPTREE_INFO
102 is not set instead of just erroring.
103
104 19 Feb 2004; Martin Schlemmer <azarah@gentoo.org>:
105
106 Fix irda type-o in /sbin/MAKEDEV, thanks to Tobias Sager <moixa@gmx.ch>.
107
108 Fix type-o in /etc/initrc, bug #41666 (Tom Vergote <bugzilla@tomvergote.be>).
109
110 15 Feb 2004; Martin Schlemmer <azarah@gentoo.org>:
111
112 Add RC_TTY_NUMBER to /etc/conf.d/rc to configure how many tty devices
113 are used in scripts such as consolefonts, numlock, etc. This should
114 close bug #39863.
115
116 Fix type-o in /etc/init.d/consolefont, bug #40938, thanks to patch from
117 Cory Tusar <ctusar@adelphia.net>.
118
119 09 Feb 2004; Martin Schlemmer <azarah@gentoo.org>:
120
121 Add SELinux modifications to /sbin/runscript. This allows runscript to
122 make sure it is running in the right domain. Patch done by
123 Chris PeBenito <pebenito@gentoo.org>.
124
125* rc-scripts 1.4.3.13 (08 Feb 2004)
126
127 08 Feb 2004; Martin Schlemmer <azarah@gentoo.org>:
128
129 Fix wrong logic in /etc/init.d/halt.sh which did not umount all mounts
130 _but_ /mnt/cdrom and /mnt/livecd.
131
132 Update /etc/init.d/consolefont to use newer kbd. Should also close
133 bug #39864.
134
135 Fix /sbin/depscan.sh, /sbin/functions.sh and /sbin/rc to use mkdir rather
136 than install, as newer versions of install is located in /usr/bin. This
137 closes bug #39648.
138
139 06 Feb 2004; Martin Schlemmer <azarah@gentoo.org>:
140
141 Tweak livecd support changes and add some more to hopefully sort out
142 last issues, with help from Brad House <brad_mssw@gentoo.org>.
143
144 Add code to generate /dev/fd, /dev/std* and /dev/core to /sbin/rc,
145 bug #37349.
146
147* rc-scripts 1.4.3.12p3 (21 Jan 2004)
148
149 19 Jan 2004; Martin Schlemmer <azarah@gentoo.org>:
150
151 Add /sbin/livecd-functions.sh from Brad House <brad_mssw@gentoo.org>
152 for livecd support. Add bits to /sbin/rc to support it.
153
154 06 Jan 2004; Martin Schlemmer <azarah@gentoo.org>:
155
156 Fix type-o in /etc/init.d/checkfs, bug #37113.
157
158 29 Dec 2003; Martin Schlemmer <azarah@gentoo.org>:
159
160 Update /sbin/depscan.sh, /sbin/env-update.sh, src/awk/cachedepends.awk,
161 src/awk/gendepends.awk and src/awk/genenviron.awk to use ENVIRON rather
162 then gawk -v. Also add some tests to see if we got the environment
163 variables.
164
165 28 Dec 2003; Martin Schlemmer <azarah@gentoo.org>:
166
167 Fix /sbin/rc to mount /dev/pts with gid=5 and mode=0620, bug #36088.
168
169* rc-scripts 1.4.3.12p2 (27 Dec 2003)
170
171 26 Dec 2003; Martin Schlemmer <azarah@gentoo.org>:
172
173 Update code to generate /dev from /sys. Add UDEV_NO_SLEEP=1 for
174 hack to not make udev sleep - its not needed as these entries
175 are already present, and not a hotplug event.
176
177 Update /etc/init.d/{consolefont,numlock} to work with udev managed
178 /dev that have devfs layout.
179
180 14 Dec 2003; Martin Schlemmer <azarah@gentoo.org>:
181
182 Fix type-o in /sbin/rc, bug #34837.
183
184* rc-scripts 1.4.3.12p1 (26 Nov 2003)
185
186 26 Nov 2003; Martin Schlemmer <azarah@gentoo.org>:
187
188 Fix /etc/init.d/halt.sh to reset pam_console permissions, else
189 the next bootup might be done with some non-root nodes which cause
190 some odd issues.
191
192 Add code to generate /dev from sysfs entries - not much it currently
193 support but block/tty devices, but it is a start for when we have
194 full sysfs support in all drivers.
195
196 Revert carrier detection check, as there is currently too many
197 issues with it, bug #33272.
198
199 Make sure we mount already mounted mount (done in /sbin/rc) with
200 correct permissions, etc, bug #33764. Modified /etc/init.d/checkroot
201 for this.
202
203 16 Nov 2003; Martin Schlemmer <azarah@gentoo.org>:
204
205 Fix carrier detection - we need to do a 'ifconfig $IFACE up' else
206 some drivers do not set the IFF_RUNNING bit, bug #33272, thanks to
207 Jason Rhinelander <jason-gentoo@gossamer-threads.com> for the fix.
208
209 15 Nov 2003; Martin Schlemmer <azarah@gentoo.org>:
210
211 Add a warning to cachedepends.awk if a rc-script's name ends in
212 '.sh', bug #33134. Add better error checking to /sbin/depscan.sh.
213
214 Fix /etc/init.d/halt.sh to not try and remount virtual devices,
215 also do a few cleanups. Closes bug #33271.
216
217* rc-scripts 1.4.3.12 (11 Nov 2003)
218
219 11 Nov 2003; Martin Schlemmer <azarah@gentoo.org>:
220
221 Add carrier detection to /etc/init.d/net.eth0 closing bug #25480;
222 patch by Jordan Ritter <jpr5+gentoo@darkridge.com>.
223
224 Add extra checks for critical directories to /sbin/rc.
225
226 04 Nov 2003; Martin Schlemmer <azarah@gentoo.org>:
227
228 Update /bin/rc-status giving a working '-u' parameter, bug #32417.
229 Fix by Michael Frysinger <vapier@gentoo.org>.
230
231 31 Oct 2003; Martin Schlemmer <azarah@gentoo.org>:
232
233 Add support for --tty switch added to setfont and remove consolechars
234 support; modified /etc/init.d/consolefont for this. Also remove
235 consoletools support from /etc/init.d/keymaps.
236
237 29 Oct 2003; Martin Schlemmer <azarah@gentoo.org>:
238
239 We should still use /sbin/udev as hotplug agent if /sbin/hotplug do
240 not exist. Updated /sbin/rc for this.
241
242 Add a fix to /etc/init.d/keymaps for bug #32111 (we should not have
243 '-u' in the call to loadkeys when using unicode).
244
245 We should not use '-' in variable names for bash, bug #31184, thanks
246 to Andreas Simon <yuipx@gmx.net>. Updated /sbin/MAKEDEV.
247
248 27 Oct 2003; Martin Schlemmer <azarah@gentoo.org>:
249
250 Fix return code checking of fsck in /etc/init.d/checkfs, bug #31349.
251
252 26 Oct 2003; Martin Schlemmer <azarah@gentoo.org>:
253
254 The unmount stuff in /etc/init.d/halt.sh was flawed, in the fact that
255 it called 'umount -t no<insert_fs_here>', which resulted in /proc, etc
256 unmounted anyhow. Change it to remount the last filesystems readonly
257 without trying to unmount any. This fixes a few cases where reboot
258 would halt due to unmounted /proc, etc.
259
260 This change set fixes two things:
261 1) In exporting all functions/variables in functions.sh, rc-services.sh
262 and rc-daemon.sh, we created an overly large environment, and also
263 broke stuff like glftpd. Do not do this, and hope whatever caused
264 the issues previously is fixed in the meantime. This should close
265 bugs #25754 and #31794.
266 2) gendepend.awk used to generate deptree with functions called
267 depinfo_<scriptname> which set appropriate variables when called.
268 This broke if the scriptname contained characters that is not valid
269 for bash variable names. Changed things to use an array fixing this.
270 This closes bug #24092.
271
272 Change /sbin/rc again to not set the hotplug agent to /sbin/udev, as
273 /sbin/hotplug will call udev as well.
274
275 Fix a logic error in /lib/rcscripts/sh/rc-services.sh that cause the
276 get_dep_info() function to skip the last entry in the RC_DEPEND_TREE
277 array (in my case 'net').
278
279 We did not handle the 'net' dependency properly in valid_iuse() and
280 valid_iafter(). Fix this in /lib/rcscripts/sh/rc-services.sh, closing
281 bugs #30327 and #31950.
282
283 Change an occurance of /etc/modutils in modules-update.8 to
284 /etc/modules.d/ closing bug #31171.
4 285
5 19 Oct 2003; Martin Schlemmer <azarah@gentoo.org>: 286 19 Oct 2003; Martin Schlemmer <azarah@gentoo.org>:
6 287
7 More bootsplash fixes, bug #21019 (comment #21). 288 More bootsplash fixes, bug #21019 (comment #21).
