7 Fix bug 50448: Four days ago I changed bash loops to use the wrong
8 conditional syntax in net.eth0. Thanks to Sven Wegener in bug
9 50448 for pointing out the problem and providing a patch.
10
11* rc-scripts 1.4.11 (07 May 2004)
12
13 07 May 2004; Aron Griffis <agriffis@gentoo.org>:
14
15 Fix bug 20597: Skip RCS files when updating modules
16
17 Fix bug 49926: Add a --assume-kernel flag to modules-update. This
18 requires a companion patch in module-init-tools-3.0-r2 to handle
19 the same flag in generate-modprobe.conf; this dependency won't be
20 handled in the baselayout ebuild since it only affects livecd
21 building.
22
23 06 May 2004; Aron Griffis <agriffis@gentoo.org>:
24
25 In net.eth0, fix many instances of loops like "for ((i = 0; i <
26 100; i = i + 1))". The problem here is that the middle comparison
27 is being interpreted as a bash conditional, which means that it's
28 doing string comparison by default. It needs to be "i -lt 100"
29
30 Fix bug 34827: net.eth0 breaks when localized because the ifconfig
31 output changes. Wrap ifconfig in a function that overrides
32 LC_ALL=C
33
34 Fix bug 48305: Provide a new network configuration variable
35 ifconfig_fallback_eth0 which allows one to specify a fallback
36 configuration in case DHCP fails.
37
38 Fix bug 50246: Give root an invalid password ("*" in /etc/shadow)
39 in the default baselayout. This prevents the first reboot after
40 installation from having a blank password.
41
42 05 May 2004; Aron Griffis <agriffis@gentoo.org>:
43
44 Fix bug 48595: Make sure $(id -u) is zero (root user) when running
45 init scripts to avoid a lot of error messages.
46
47 Replace many lines of awk with two lines of grep in
48 init.d/localmount
49
50 Fix bug 44316: Use 0644 instead of 0640 for resolv.conf in net.ppp0
51
52 03 May 2004; Aron Griffis <agriffis@gentoo.org>:
53
54 Update to version 1.10.20 of Debian's start-stop-daemon (contained
55 in dpkg at http://packages.debian.org/testing/base/dpkg). This
56 fixes bug 22686 (start-stop-daemon in baselayout doesn't allow
57 altered nicelevel).
58
59* rc-scripts 1.4.10 (25 Apr 2004)
60
61 25 Apr 2004; Aron Griffis <agriffis@gentoo.org>:
62
63 Fix typos in sbin/rc: "try try mount" and "mount ... & >/dev/null"
64 Also removed the errstr double-checking since the need for that is
65 alleviated by these typo fixes.
66
67 23 Apr 2004; Aron Griffis <agriffis@gentoo.org>:
68
69 Fix bug 48629 (/sbin/rc fixups for udev) with patch from GregKH
70
71 Fix bug 40987 (gentoo should be able to boot with an empty /dev)
72 with patch from Spanky. The patch avoids redirection to /dev/null
73 when it doesn't exist; this was breaking /sbin/rc.
74
75* rc-scripts 1.4.9 (15 Apr 2004)
76
77 15 Apr 2004; Aron Griffis <agriffis@gentoo.org>:
78
79 Fix bug 47111 (severe depcache problems) with tons of help from
80 dswhite42 and the rest of the crew in that bug. Thanks guys!
81
82* rc-scripts 1.4.8 (14 Apr 2004)
83
84 14 Apr 2004; Aron Griffis <agriffis@gentoo.org>:
85
86 Fix bug 47623 (error removing inet6 addresses) with patch provided
87 by Vlad Yasevich.
88
89* rc-scripts 1.4.7 (12 Apr 2004)
90
91 12 Apr 2004; Aron Griffis <agriffis@gentoo.org>:
92
93 Fix bug 47218 (net.eth0 broken for vlans) with patch provided by
94 Andy Dustman. Fix bug 47250 (depscan.sh fails to create
95 /var/lib/init.d/* directories) with patch from Terje Bergström.
96
97* rc-scripts 1.4.6 (08 Apr 2004)
98
99 08 Apr 2004; Aron Griffis <agriffis@gentoo.org>:
100
101 Update patch from Gustavoz; -ln /bin/bash should have been -nl /bin/bash
102
103* rc-scripts 1.4.5 (08 Apr 2004)
104
105 08 Apr 2004; Aron Griffis <agriffis@gentoo.org>:
106
107 Patch init.d/checkroot to list / (root) only once in mtab; see bug 38360.
108 Patch from Gustavoz to livecd-functions.sh to run bash instead of login on
109 serial consoles, necessary due to scrambled root passwords.
110
111* rc-scripts 1.4.4 (07 Apr 2004)
112
113 07 Apr 2004; Aron Griffis <agriffis@gentoo.org>:
114
115 Patch from Gustavoz for Sparc console: Fetch LIVECD_CONSOLE from dmesg
116 output. Also support 4800 baud correctly.
117
118 16 Mar 2004; Aron Griffis <agriffis@gentoo.org>:
119
120 The changes in this commit pertain primarily to
121 http://bugs.gentoo.org/show_bug.cgi?id=19695
122 http://bugs.gentoo.org/show_bug.cgi?id=35736
123
124 Specify routes as an array per interface, for example:
125 routes_eth0=(
126 "-net 10.1.0.0 netmask 255.255.0.0 gw 10.0.0.5"
127 "-net 10.2.0.0 netmask 255.255.0.0 gw 10.0.0.6"
128 "-host 10.3.0.1 dev eth0"
129 )
130
131 You can optionally use the gateway variable or just put the default route
132 in the routes variable. The following two are REDUNDANT:
133
134 routes_eth0=( "default gw 10.0.0.5" )
135 gateway="eth0/10.0.0.5"
136
137 Old configuration variables in /etc/conf.d/net are fully supported and
138 used transparently if ifconfig_eth0 is missing. In other words, this new
139 script is fully backward-compatible. However you can get rid of
140 iface_eth0, alias_eth0, broadcast_eth0 and netmask_eth0 if you want by
141 using the new syntax:
142
143 ifconfig_eth0=(
144 "10.0.0.6 broadcast 10.0.255.255 netmask 255.255.0.0"
145 "192.168.1.1 netmask 255.255.255.0"
146 "123.456.789.1"
147 )
148
149 Full backward compatibility so no danger to screwing up users relying on
150 existing /etc/conf.d/net setup
151
152 NET_DEBUG can be set in the environment for copious debugging output
153
154 Deprecate [ ] in favor of [[ ]] which has fewer quoting issues and
155 better functionality (and is even slightly faster)
156
157 Properly localize all variables, including variables returned by
158 setup_vars
159
160 Allow full options for every ifconfig command, both base address and
161 aliases via ifconfig_eth0, replacing the convoluted and less-functional
162 iface_eth0, alias_eth0, broadcast_eth0, netmask_eth0
163
164 Provide full support for static routes via routes_eth0
165
166 Fix potential quoting problems in setup_vars by using better eval syntax
167 instead of eval echo
168
169 Display IP addresses while configuring, both DHCP-retrieved and
170 statically set addresses
171
172 Collapse redundant caching of $? since eend returns $? again
173
174 Report when keeping kernel configuration for an interface along with IP
175 address gleaned
176
177 Don't reset the default gateway if it is already set correctly
178
179 Don't bind default gateway to particular interface when /sbin/route is
180 called so that it can survive if there is more than one interface on the
181 required subnet. (Old behavior can be obtained by setting
182 routes_eth0="default gw 1.2.3.4 dev eth0" if you really want it)
183
184 Don't bomb if default gateway can't be set since that doesn't
185 necessarily mean that the interface configuration is invalid.
186 (Old behavior was completely broken, but commented section
187 demonstrates how to do it right if necessary)
188
189 iface_stop no longer relies on configuration in /etc/conf.d/net AT ALL.
190 This is very good because it means you can put new configuration in
191 /etc/conf.d/net, then restart the interface and the old configuration will
192 be properly shut down.
193
194 iface_stop reports when it is releasing the DHCP lease
195
196* rc-scripts 1.4.3.13p1 (26 Feb 2004)
197
198 26 Feb 2004; Martin Schlemmer <azarah@gentoo.org>:
199
200 Remove /etc/DIR_COLORS, as coreutils provides it now.
201
202 Add RC_DEVICE_TARBALL to /etc/conf.d/rc to control use of device tarball.
203 Also modified /sbin/rc and /etc/init.d/halt.sh for this.
204
205 Start udevd if present.
206
207 Small fix to sbin/rc-services.sh related to mtime checking and 'net'
208 virtual service - it had no mtime generated, so check_mtime() failed
209 for it ...
210
211 25 Feb 2004; Martin Schlemmer <azarah@gentoo.org>:
212
213 Update to enable checking of mtimes on rc-scripts, and auto running
214 depscan.sh if needed. Also try to run depscan.sh when RC_GOT_DEPTREE_INFO
215 is not set instead of just erroring.
216
