24 Patch from Gustavoz to livecd-functions.sh to run bash instead of login on

40 Specify routes as an array per interface, for example:
41 routes_eth0=(
42 "-net 10.1.0.0 netmask 255.255.0.0 gw 10.0.0.5"
43 "-net 10.2.0.0 netmask 255.255.0.0 gw 10.0.0.6"
44 "-host 10.3.0.1 dev eth0"
45 )
46
47 You can optionally use the gateway variable or just put the default route
48 in the routes variable. The following two are REDUNDANT:
49
50 routes_eth0=( "default gw 10.0.0.5" )
51 gateway="eth0/10.0.0.5"
52
53 Old configuration variables in /etc/conf.d/net are fully supported and
54 used transparently if ifconfig_eth0 is missing. In other words, this new
55 script is fully backward-compatible. However you can get rid of
56 iface_eth0, alias_eth0, broadcast_eth0 and netmask_eth0 if you want by
57 using the new syntax:
58
59 ifconfig_eth0=(
60 "10.0.0.6 broadcast 10.0.255.255 netmask 255.255.0.0"
61 "192.168.1.1 netmask 255.255.255.0"
62 "123.456.789.1"
63 )
64
65 Full backward compatibility so no danger to screwing up users relying on
66 existing /etc/conf.d/net setup
67
68 NET_DEBUG can be set in the environment for copious debugging output
69
70 Deprecate [ ] in favor of [[ ]] which has fewer quoting issues and
71 better functionality (and is even slightly faster)
72
73 Properly localize all variables, including variables returned by
74 setup_vars
75
76 Allow full options for every ifconfig command, both base address and
77 aliases via ifconfig_eth0, replacing the convoluted and less-functional
78 iface_eth0, alias_eth0, broadcast_eth0, netmask_eth0
79
80 Provide full support for static routes via routes_eth0
81
82 Fix potential quoting problems in setup_vars by using better eval syntax
83 instead of eval echo
84
85 Display IP addresses while configuring, both DHCP-retrieved and
86 statically set addresses
87
88 Collapse redundant caching of $? since eend returns $? again
89
90 Report when keeping kernel configuration for an interface along with IP
91 address gleaned
92
93 Don't reset the default gateway if it is already set correctly
94
95 Don't bind default gateway to particular interface when /sbin/route is
96 called so that it can survive if there is more than one interface on the
97 required subnet. (Old behavior can be obtained by setting
98 routes_eth0="default gw 1.2.3.4 dev eth0" if you really want it)
99
100 Don't bomb if default gateway can't be set since that doesn't
101 necessarily mean that the interface configuration is invalid.
102 (Old behavior was completely broken, but commented section
103 demonstrates how to do it right if necessary)
104
105 iface_stop no longer relies on configuration in /etc/conf.d/net AT ALL.
106 This is very good because it means you can put new configuration in
107 /etc/conf.d/net, then restart the interface and the old configuration will
108 be properly shut down.
109
110 iface_stop reports when it is releasing the DHCP lease
111
112* rc-scripts 1.4.3.13p1 (26 Feb 2004)
113
114 26 Feb 2004; Martin Schlemmer <azarah@gentoo.org>:
115
116 Remove /etc/DIR_COLORS, as coreutils provides it now.
117
118 Add RC_DEVICE_TARBALL to /etc/conf.d/rc to control use of device tarball.
119 Also modified /sbin/rc and /etc/init.d/halt.sh for this.
120
121 Start udevd if present.
122
123 Small fix to sbin/rc-services.sh related to mtime checking and 'net'
124 virtual service - it had no mtime generated, so check_mtime() failed
125 for it ...
126
127 25 Feb 2004; Martin Schlemmer <azarah@gentoo.org>:
128
129 Update to enable checking of mtimes on rc-scripts, and auto running
130 depscan.sh if needed. Also try to run depscan.sh when RC_GOT_DEPTREE_INFO
131 is not set instead of just erroring.
132
