5 05 May 2004; Aron Griffis <agriffis@gentoo.org>:
6
7 Fix bug 48595: Make sure $(id -u) is zero (root user) when running
8 init scripts to avoid a lot of error messages.
9
10 03 May 2004; Aron Griffis <agriffis@gentoo.org>:
11
12 Update to version 1.10.20 of Debian's start-stop-daemon (contained
13 in dpkg at http://packages.debian.org/testing/base/dpkg). This
14 fixes bug 22686 (start-stop-daemon in baselayout doesn't allow
15 altered nicelevel).
16
17* rc-scripts 1.4.10 (25 Apr 2004)
18
19 25 Apr 2004; Aron Griffis <agriffis@gentoo.org>:
20
21 Fix typos in sbin/rc: "try try mount" and "mount ... & >/dev/null"
22 Also removed the errstr double-checking since the need for that is
23 alleviated by these typo fixes.
24
25 23 Apr 2004; Aron Griffis <agriffis@gentoo.org>:
26
27 Fix bug 48629 (/sbin/rc fixups for udev) with patch from GregKH
28
29 Fix bug 40987 (gentoo should be able to boot with an empty /dev)
30 with patch from Spanky. The patch avoids redirection to /dev/null
31 when it doesn't exist; this was breaking /sbin/rc.
32
33* rc-scripts 1.4.9 (15 Apr 2004)
34
35 15 Apr 2004; Aron Griffis <agriffis@gentoo.org>:
36
37 Fix bug 47111 (severe depcache problems) with tons of help from
38 dswhite42 and the rest of the crew in that bug. Thanks guys!
39
40* rc-scripts 1.4.8 (14 Apr 2004)
41
42 14 Apr 2004; Aron Griffis <agriffis@gentoo.org>:
43
44 Fix bug 47623 (error removing inet6 addresses) with patch provided
45 by Vlad Yasevich.
46
47* rc-scripts 1.4.7 (12 Apr 2004)
48
49 12 Apr 2004; Aron Griffis <agriffis@gentoo.org>:
50
51 Fix bug 47218 (net.eth0 broken for vlans) with patch provided by
52 Andy Dustman. Fix bug 47250 (depscan.sh fails to create
53 /var/lib/init.d/* directories) with patch from Terje Bergström.
54
55* rc-scripts 1.4.6 (08 Apr 2004)
56
57 08 Apr 2004; Aron Griffis <agriffis@gentoo.org>:
58
59 Update patch from Gustavoz; -ln /bin/bash should have been -nl /bin/bash
60
61* rc-scripts 1.4.5 (08 Apr 2004)
62
63 08 Apr 2004; Aron Griffis <agriffis@gentoo.org>:
64
65 Patch init.d/checkroot to list / (root) only once in mtab; see bug 38360.
66 Patch from Gustavoz to livecd-functions.sh to run bash instead of login on
67 serial consoles, necessary due to scrambled root passwords.
68
69* rc-scripts 1.4.4 (07 Apr 2004)
70
71 07 Apr 2004; Aron Griffis <agriffis@gentoo.org>:
72
73 Patch from Gustavoz for Sparc console: Fetch LIVECD_CONSOLE from dmesg
74 output. Also support 4800 baud correctly.
75
76 16 Mar 2004; Aron Griffis <agriffis@gentoo.org>:
77
78 The changes in this commit pertain primarily to
79 http://bugs.gentoo.org/show_bug.cgi?id=19695
80 http://bugs.gentoo.org/show_bug.cgi?id=35736
81
82 Specify routes as an array per interface, for example:
83 routes_eth0=(
84 "-net 10.1.0.0 netmask 255.255.0.0 gw 10.0.0.5"
85 "-net 10.2.0.0 netmask 255.255.0.0 gw 10.0.0.6"
86 "-host 10.3.0.1 dev eth0"
87 )
88
89 You can optionally use the gateway variable or just put the default route
90 in the routes variable. The following two are REDUNDANT:
91
92 routes_eth0=( "default gw 10.0.0.5" )
93 gateway="eth0/10.0.0.5"
94
95 Old configuration variables in /etc/conf.d/net are fully supported and
96 used transparently if ifconfig_eth0 is missing. In other words, this new
97 script is fully backward-compatible. However you can get rid of
98 iface_eth0, alias_eth0, broadcast_eth0 and netmask_eth0 if you want by
99 using the new syntax:
100
101 ifconfig_eth0=(
102 "10.0.0.6 broadcast 10.0.255.255 netmask 255.255.0.0"
103 "192.168.1.1 netmask 255.255.255.0"
104 "123.456.789.1"
105 )
106
107 Full backward compatibility so no danger to screwing up users relying on
108 existing /etc/conf.d/net setup
109
110 NET_DEBUG can be set in the environment for copious debugging output
111
112 Deprecate [ ] in favor of [[ ]] which has fewer quoting issues and
113 better functionality (and is even slightly faster)
114
115 Properly localize all variables, including variables returned by
116 setup_vars
117
118 Allow full options for every ifconfig command, both base address and
119 aliases via ifconfig_eth0, replacing the convoluted and less-functional
120 iface_eth0, alias_eth0, broadcast_eth0, netmask_eth0
121
122 Provide full support for static routes via routes_eth0
123
124 Fix potential quoting problems in setup_vars by using better eval syntax
125 instead of eval echo
126
127 Display IP addresses while configuring, both DHCP-retrieved and
128 statically set addresses
129
130 Collapse redundant caching of $? since eend returns $? again
131
132 Report when keeping kernel configuration for an interface along with IP
133 address gleaned
134
135 Don't reset the default gateway if it is already set correctly
136
137 Don't bind default gateway to particular interface when /sbin/route is
138 called so that it can survive if there is more than one interface on the
139 required subnet. (Old behavior can be obtained by setting
140 routes_eth0="default gw 1.2.3.4 dev eth0" if you really want it)
141
142 Don't bomb if default gateway can't be set since that doesn't
143 necessarily mean that the interface configuration is invalid.
144 (Old behavior was completely broken, but commented section
145 demonstrates how to do it right if necessary)
146
147 iface_stop no longer relies on configuration in /etc/conf.d/net AT ALL.
148 This is very good because it means you can put new configuration in
149 /etc/conf.d/net, then restart the interface and the old configuration will
150 be properly shut down.
151
152 iface_stop reports when it is releasing the DHCP lease
153
154* rc-scripts 1.4.3.13p1 (26 Feb 2004)
155
156 26 Feb 2004; Martin Schlemmer <azarah@gentoo.org>:
157
158 Remove /etc/DIR_COLORS, as coreutils provides it now.
159
160 Add RC_DEVICE_TARBALL to /etc/conf.d/rc to control use of device tarball.
161 Also modified /sbin/rc and /etc/init.d/halt.sh for this.
162
163 Start udevd if present.
164
165 Small fix to sbin/rc-services.sh related to mtime checking and 'net'
166 virtual service - it had no mtime generated, so check_mtime() failed
167 for it ...
168
169 25 Feb 2004; Martin Schlemmer <azarah@gentoo.org>:
170
171 Update to enable checking of mtimes on rc-scripts, and auto running
172 depscan.sh if needed. Also try to run depscan.sh when RC_GOT_DEPTREE_INFO
173 is not set instead of just erroring.
174
175 19 Feb 2004; Martin Schlemmer <azarah@gentoo.org>:
176
177 Fix irda type-o in /sbin/MAKEDEV, thanks to Tobias Sager <moixa@gmx.ch>.

179 Fix type-o in /etc/initrc, bug #41666 (Tom Vergote <bugzilla@tomvergote.be>).

187 Fix type-o in /etc/init.d/consolefont, bug #40938, thanks to patch from
188 Cory Tusar <ctusar@adelphia.net>.
