5 06 May 2004; Aron Griffis <agriffis@gentoo.org>:
6
7 Fix bug 34827: net.eth0 breaks when localized because the ifconfig
8 output changes. Wrap ifconfig in a function that overrides
9 LC_ALL=C
10
11 Fix bug 48305: Provide a new network configuration variable
12 ifconfig_fallback_eth0 which allows one to specify a fallback
13 configuration in case DHCP fails.
14
15 Fix bug 50246: Give root an invalid password ("*" in /etc/shadow)
16 in the default baselayout. This prevents the first reboot after
17 installation from having a blank password.
18
19 05 May 2004; Aron Griffis <agriffis@gentoo.org>:
20
21 Fix bug 48595: Make sure $(id -u) is zero (root user) when running
22 init scripts to avoid a lot of error messages.
23
24 Replace many lines of awk with two lines of grep in
25 init.d/localmount
26
27 Fix bug 44316: Use 0644 instead of 0640 for resolv.conf in net.ppp0
28
29 03 May 2004; Aron Griffis <agriffis@gentoo.org>:
30
31 Update to version 1.10.20 of Debian's start-stop-daemon (contained
32 in dpkg at http://packages.debian.org/testing/base/dpkg). This
33 fixes bug 22686 (start-stop-daemon in baselayout doesn't allow
34 altered nicelevel).
35
36* rc-scripts 1.4.10 (25 Apr 2004)
37
38 25 Apr 2004; Aron Griffis <agriffis@gentoo.org>:
39
40 Fix typos in sbin/rc: "try try mount" and "mount ... & >/dev/null"
41 Also removed the errstr double-checking since the need for that is
42 alleviated by these typo fixes.
43
44 23 Apr 2004; Aron Griffis <agriffis@gentoo.org>:
45
46 Fix bug 48629 (/sbin/rc fixups for udev) with patch from GregKH
47
48 Fix bug 40987 (gentoo should be able to boot with an empty /dev)
49 with patch from Spanky. The patch avoids redirection to /dev/null
50 when it doesn't exist; this was breaking /sbin/rc.
51
52* rc-scripts 1.4.9 (15 Apr 2004)
53
54 15 Apr 2004; Aron Griffis <agriffis@gentoo.org>:
55
56 Fix bug 47111 (severe depcache problems) with tons of help from
57 dswhite42 and the rest of the crew in that bug. Thanks guys!
58
59* rc-scripts 1.4.8 (14 Apr 2004)
60
61 14 Apr 2004; Aron Griffis <agriffis@gentoo.org>:
62
63 Fix bug 47623 (error removing inet6 addresses) with patch provided
64 by Vlad Yasevich.
65
66* rc-scripts 1.4.7 (12 Apr 2004)
67
68 12 Apr 2004; Aron Griffis <agriffis@gentoo.org>:
69
70 Fix bug 47218 (net.eth0 broken for vlans) with patch provided by
71 Andy Dustman. Fix bug 47250 (depscan.sh fails to create
72 /var/lib/init.d/* directories) with patch from Terje Bergström.
73
74* rc-scripts 1.4.6 (08 Apr 2004)
75
76 08 Apr 2004; Aron Griffis <agriffis@gentoo.org>:
77
78 Update patch from Gustavoz; -ln /bin/bash should have been -nl /bin/bash
79
80* rc-scripts 1.4.5 (08 Apr 2004)
81
82 08 Apr 2004; Aron Griffis <agriffis@gentoo.org>:
83
84 Patch init.d/checkroot to list / (root) only once in mtab; see bug 38360.
85 Patch from Gustavoz to livecd-functions.sh to run bash instead of login on
86 serial consoles, necessary due to scrambled root passwords.
87
88* rc-scripts 1.4.4 (07 Apr 2004)
89
90 07 Apr 2004; Aron Griffis <agriffis@gentoo.org>:
91
92 Patch from Gustavoz for Sparc console: Fetch LIVECD_CONSOLE from dmesg
93 output. Also support 4800 baud correctly.
94
95 16 Mar 2004; Aron Griffis <agriffis@gentoo.org>:
96
97 The changes in this commit pertain primarily to
98 http://bugs.gentoo.org/show_bug.cgi?id=19695
99 http://bugs.gentoo.org/show_bug.cgi?id=35736
100
101 Specify routes as an array per interface, for example:
102 routes_eth0=(
103 "-net 10.1.0.0 netmask 255.255.0.0 gw 10.0.0.5"
104 "-net 10.2.0.0 netmask 255.255.0.0 gw 10.0.0.6"
105 "-host 10.3.0.1 dev eth0"
106 )
107
108 You can optionally use the gateway variable or just put the default route
109 in the routes variable. The following two are REDUNDANT:
110
111 routes_eth0=( "default gw 10.0.0.5" )
112 gateway="eth0/10.0.0.5"
113
114 Old configuration variables in /etc/conf.d/net are fully supported and
115 used transparently if ifconfig_eth0 is missing. In other words, this new
116 script is fully backward-compatible. However you can get rid of
117 iface_eth0, alias_eth0, broadcast_eth0 and netmask_eth0 if you want by
118 using the new syntax:
119
120 ifconfig_eth0=(
121 "10.0.0.6 broadcast 10.0.255.255 netmask 255.255.0.0"
122 "192.168.1.1 netmask 255.255.255.0"
123 "123.456.789.1"
124 )
125
126 Full backward compatibility so no danger to screwing up users relying on
127 existing /etc/conf.d/net setup
128
129 NET_DEBUG can be set in the environment for copious debugging output
130
131 Deprecate [ ] in favor of [[ ]] which has fewer quoting issues and
132 better functionality (and is even slightly faster)
133
134 Properly localize all variables, including variables returned by
135 setup_vars
136
137 Allow full options for every ifconfig command, both base address and
138 aliases via ifconfig_eth0, replacing the convoluted and less-functional
139 iface_eth0, alias_eth0, broadcast_eth0, netmask_eth0
140
141 Provide full support for static routes via routes_eth0
142
143 Fix potential quoting problems in setup_vars by using better eval syntax
144 instead of eval echo
145
146 Display IP addresses while configuring, both DHCP-retrieved and
147 statically set addresses
148
149 Collapse redundant caching of $? since eend returns $? again
150
151 Report when keeping kernel configuration for an interface along with IP
152 address gleaned
153
154 Don't reset the default gateway if it is already set correctly
155
156 Don't bind default gateway to particular interface when /sbin/route is
157 called so that it can survive if there is more than one interface on the
158 required subnet. (Old behavior can be obtained by setting
159 routes_eth0="default gw 1.2.3.4 dev eth0" if you really want it)
160
161 Don't bomb if default gateway can't be set since that doesn't
162 necessarily mean that the interface configuration is invalid.
163 (Old behavior was completely broken, but commented section
164 demonstrates how to do it right if necessary)
165
166 iface_stop no longer relies on configuration in /etc/conf.d/net AT ALL.
167 This is very good because it means you can put new configuration in
168 /etc/conf.d/net, then restart the interface and the old configuration will
169 be properly shut down.
170
171 iface_stop reports when it is releasing the DHCP lease
172
173* rc-scripts 1.4.3.13p1 (26 Feb 2004)
174
175 26 Feb 2004; Martin Schlemmer <azarah@gentoo.org>:
176
177 Remove /etc/DIR_COLORS, as coreutils provides it now.
178
179 Add RC_DEVICE_TARBALL to /etc/conf.d/rc to control use of device tarball.
180 Also modified /sbin/rc and /etc/init.d/halt.sh for this.
181
182 Start udevd if present.
183
184 Small fix to sbin/rc-services.sh related to mtime checking and 'net'
185 virtual service - it had no mtime generated, so check_mtime() failed
186 for it ...
187
188 25 Feb 2004; Martin Schlemmer <azarah@gentoo.org>:
189
190 Update to enable checking of mtimes on rc-scripts, and auto running
191 depscan.sh if needed. Also try to run depscan.sh when RC_GOT_DEPTREE_INFO
192 is not set instead of just erroring.
193
194 19 Feb 2004; Martin Schlemmer <azarah@gentoo.org>:
195
196 Fix irda type-o in /sbin/MAKEDEV, thanks to Tobias Sager <moixa@gmx.ch>.
197
198 Fix type-o in /etc/initrc, bug #41666 (Tom Vergote <bugzilla@tomvergote.be>).
199
200 15 Feb 2004; Martin Schlemmer <azarah@gentoo.org>:
201
202 Add RC_TTY_NUMBER to /etc/conf.d/rc to configure how many tty devices
203 are used in scripts such as consolefonts, numlock, etc. This should
204 close bug #39863.
205
206 Fix type-o in /etc/init.d/consolefont, bug #40938, thanks to patch from
207 Cory Tusar <ctusar@adelphia.net>.
208
209 09 Feb 2004; Martin Schlemmer <azarah@gentoo.org>:
210
211 Add SELinux modifications to /sbin/runscript. This allows runscript to
212 make sure it is running in the right domain. Patch done by
213 Chris PeBenito <pebenito@gentoo.org>.
214
215* rc-scripts 1.4.3.13 (08 Feb 2004)
216
217 08 Feb 2004; Martin Schlemmer <azarah@gentoo.org>:
218
219 Fix wrong logic in /etc/init.d/halt.sh which did not umount all mounts
220 _but_ /mnt/cdrom and /mnt/livecd.
221
222 Update /etc/init.d/consolefont to use newer kbd. Should also close
223 bug #39864.
224
225 Fix /sbin/depscan.sh, /sbin/functions.sh and /sbin/rc to use mkdir rather
226 than install, as newer versions of install is located in /usr/bin. This
227 closes bug #39648.
228
229 06 Feb 2004; Martin Schlemmer <azarah@gentoo.org>:
230
231 Tweak livecd support changes and add some more to hopefully sort out
232 last issues, with help from Brad House <brad_mssw@gentoo.org>.
233
234 Add code to generate /dev/fd, /dev/std* and /dev/core to /sbin/rc,
235 bug #37349.
236
237* rc-scripts 1.4.3.12p3 (21 Jan 2004)
238
239 19 Jan 2004; Martin Schlemmer <azarah@gentoo.org>:
240
241 Add /sbin/livecd-functions.sh from Brad House <brad_mssw@gentoo.org>
242 for livecd support. Add bits to /sbin/rc to support it.
243
244 06 Jan 2004; Martin Schlemmer <azarah@gentoo.org>:
245
246 Fix type-o in /etc/init.d/checkfs, bug #37113.
247
248 29 Dec 2003; Martin Schlemmer <azarah@gentoo.org>:
249
250 Update /sbin/depscan.sh, /sbin/env-update.sh, src/awk/cachedepends.awk,
251 src/awk/gendepends.awk and src/awk/genenviron.awk to use ENVIRON rather
252 then gawk -v. Also add some tests to see if we got the environment
253 variables.
254
255 28 Dec 2003; Martin Schlemmer <azarah@gentoo.org>:
256
257 Fix /sbin/rc to mount /dev/pts with gid=5 and mode=0620, bug #36088.
258
259* rc-scripts 1.4.3.12p2 (27 Dec 2003)
260
261 26 Dec 2003; Martin Schlemmer <azarah@gentoo.org>:
262
263 Update code to generate /dev from /sys. Add UDEV_NO_SLEEP=1 for
264 hack to not make udev sleep - its not needed as these entries
265 are already present, and not a hotplug event.
266
267 Update /etc/init.d/{consolefont,numlock} to work with udev managed
268 /dev that have devfs layout.
269
270 14 Dec 2003; Martin Schlemmer <azarah@gentoo.org>:
271
272 Fix type-o in /sbin/rc, bug #34837.
273
274* rc-scripts 1.4.3.12p1 (26 Nov 2003)
275
276 26 Nov 2003; Martin Schlemmer <azarah@gentoo.org>:
277
278 Fix /etc/init.d/halt.sh to reset pam_console permissions, else
279 the next bootup might be done with some non-root nodes which cause
280 some odd issues.
281
282 Add code to generate /dev from sysfs entries - not much it currently
283 support but block/tty devices, but it is a start for when we have
284 full sysfs support in all drivers.
285
286 Revert carrier detection check, as there is currently too many
287 issues with it, bug #33272.
288
289 Make sure we mount already mounted mount (done in /sbin/rc) with
290 correct permissions, etc, bug #33764. Modified /etc/init.d/checkroot
291 for this.
292
293 16 Nov 2003; Martin Schlemmer <azarah@gentoo.org>:
294
295 Fix carrier detection - we need to do a 'ifconfig $IFACE up' else
296 some drivers do not set the IFF_RUNNING bit, bug #33272, thanks to
297 Jason Rhinelander <jason-gentoo@gossamer-threads.com> for the fix.
298
299 15 Nov 2003; Martin Schlemmer <azarah@gentoo.org>:
300
301 Add a warning to cachedepends.awk if a rc-script's name ends in
302 '.sh', bug #33134. Add better error checking to /sbin/depscan.sh.
303
304 Fix /etc/init.d/halt.sh to not try and remount virtual devices,
305 also do a few cleanups. Closes bug #33271.
306
307* rc-scripts 1.4.3.12 (11 Nov 2003)
308
309 11 Nov 2003; Martin Schlemmer <azarah@gentoo.org>:
310
311 Add carrier detection to /etc/init.d/net.eth0 closing bug #25480;
312 patch by Jordan Ritter <jpr5+gentoo@darkridge.com>.
313
314 Add extra checks for critical directories to /sbin/rc.
315
316 04 Nov 2003; Martin Schlemmer <azarah@gentoo.org>:
317
318 Update /bin/rc-status giving a working '-u' parameter, bug #32417.
319 Fix by Michael Frysinger <vapier@gentoo.org>.
320
321 31 Oct 2003; Martin Schlemmer <azarah@gentoo.org>:
322
323 Add support for --tty switch added to setfont and remove consolechars
324 support; modified /etc/init.d/consolefont for this. Also remove
325 consoletools support from /etc/init.d/keymaps.
326
327 29 Oct 2003; Martin Schlemmer <azarah@gentoo.org>:
328
329 We should still use /sbin/udev as hotplug agent if /sbin/hotplug do
330 not exist. Updated /sbin/rc for this.
331
332 Add a fix to /etc/init.d/keymaps for bug #32111 (we should not have
333 '-u' in the call to loadkeys when using unicode).
334
335 We should not use '-' in variable names for bash, bug #31184, thanks
336 to Andreas Simon <yuipx@gmx.net>. Updated /sbin/MAKEDEV.
337
338 27 Oct 2003; Martin Schlemmer <azarah@gentoo.org>:
339
340 Fix return code checking of fsck in /etc/init.d/checkfs, bug #31349.
341
342 26 Oct 2003; Martin Schlemmer <azarah@gentoo.org>:
343
344 The unmount stuff in /etc/init.d/halt.sh was flawed, in the fact that
345 it called 'umount -t no<insert_fs_here>', which resulted in /proc, etc
346 unmounted anyhow. Change it to remount the last filesystems readonly
347 without trying to unmount any. This fixes a few cases where reboot
348 would halt due to unmounted /proc, etc.
349
350 This change set fixes two things:
351 1) In exporting all functions/variables in functions.sh, rc-services.sh
352 and rc-daemon.sh, we created an overly large environment, and also
353 broke stuff like glftpd. Do not do this, and hope whatever caused
354 the issues previously is fixed in the meantime. This should close
355 bugs #25754 and #31794.
356 2) gendepend.awk used to generate deptree with functions called
357 depinfo_<scriptname> which set appropriate variables when called.
358 This broke if the scriptname contained characters that is not valid
359 for bash variable names. Changed things to use an array fixing this.
360 This closes bug #24092.
361
362 Change /sbin/rc again to not set the hotplug agent to /sbin/udev, as
363 /sbin/hotplug will call udev as well.
364
365 Fix a logic error in /lib/rcscripts/sh/rc-services.sh that cause the
366 get_dep_info() function to skip the last entry in the RC_DEPEND_TREE
367 array (in my case 'net').
368
369 We did not handle the 'net' dependency properly in valid_iuse() and
370 valid_iafter(). Fix this in /lib/rcscripts/sh/rc-services.sh, closing
371 bugs #30327 and #31950.
372
373 Change an occurance of /etc/modutils in modules-update.8 to
374 /etc/modules.d/ closing bug #31171.

5 19 Oct 2003; Martin Schlemmer <azarah@gentoo.org>: 376 19 Oct 2003; Martin Schlemmer <azarah@gentoo.org>:

7 More bootsplash fixes, bug #21019 (comment #21). 378 More bootsplash fixes, bug #21019 (comment #21).
