5 25 Oct 2004; Aron Griffis <agriffis@gentoo.org>:
6
7 In net-scripts/net.modules.d/ifconfig:
8 - Simplify ifconfig_is_up()
9 - Fix ifconfig_get_aliases_rev() to actually work... you can't
10 specify an interface name to ifconfig if you want to see the
11 aliases.
12 - Workaround a couple ifconfig bugs dealing with aliases
13 - Correct a return status in ifconfig_interface_del_addresses()
14
15 24 Oct 2004; Aron Griffis <agriffis@gentoo.org>:
16
17 Include livecd patch that was applied to baselayout-1.9.4-r6
18 to use agetty instead of mingetty
19
20 24 Oct 2004; Mike Frysinger <vapier@gentoo.org>:
21
22 Mount tmpfs instead of ramfs on /dev when using udev systems.
23 The problem with ramfs is that it has no size limitations so
24 one could easily take down their machine by accident. Perhaps
25 this could be made into a configuration option (type is ramfs,
26 tmpfs, or ramdisk and size is xxxx), but for now we'll just
27 force tmpfs unless someone cares ;) #68653.
28
29* rc-scripts 1.6.3 (23 Oct 2004)
30
31 22 Oct 2004; Aron Griffis <agriffis@gentoo.org>:
32
33 Add support for user_eth0 in the adsl module and in net.example.
34 This means that most users won't need to edit pppoe.conf at all
35
36 21 Oct 2004; Aron Griffis <agriffis@gentoo.org>:
37
38 Remove old etc/conf.d/net and try to clarify instructions in
39 net-scripts/conf.d/net.example. Add example for ADSL
40
41 21 Oct 2004; Mike Frysinger <vapier@gentoo.org>:
42
43 Merge all of the UML checks into one function, is_uml_sys(),
44 which is now in functions.sh.
45
46 18 Oct 2004; Aron Griffis <agriffis@gentoo.org>:
47
48 Add v-e-commands (veinfo, vbegin, etc) to sbin/functions.sh that
49 depend on RC_VERBOSE which defaults to no. Add --verbose to args
50 understood by runscript.sh.
51
52 In net.lo, use veinfo and friends when loading modules since this
53 information is confusing to users.
54
55 In net.lo, always load global "modules" setting in following
56 "modules_iface" since this is a little easier for users to
57 understand.
58
59 In net.lo, use eindent for output of pre/post scripts
60
61 18 Oct 2004; Mike Frysinger <vapier@gentoo.org>:
62
63 Add shfs to our list of net filesystems #61452. Also add afs/nfs4.
64
65 Add a '-u' parameter to depscan.sh to allow for updates only when
66 the config files have changed. With /sbin/rc using this, we speed
67 up bootup by only regenerating the cache when need be #67976. Also
68 add a '-u' parameter to env-update.sh for same reasons.
69
70 Don't run depscan.sh in rc-update anymore since the cache files don't
71 depend on runlevels (which is all that rc-update modifies).
72
73 Add unicode support to keymaps/consolefont #32111 and UML support #29707.
74
75 Add checks to many filesystem operations in the eventuality that the
76 filesystems are mounted read only.
77
78 16 Oct 2004; Mike Frysinger <vapier@gentoo.org>:
79
80 Update the default fstab /dev/shm mount to include the nodev, nosuid,
81 and noexec mount flags. No reason for the filesystem to have those.
82
83 Cleaned up the clock init script. Moved the clock options out of
84 rc.conf and into its own conf.d/clock file. Added support for the
85 weird Alpha consoles SRM/ARC since they need special config options.
86 Also made the syncing of system clock to hardware clock at shutdown
87 optional (with the default being off) #15834. Don't try to set the
88 clock if running inside a coLinux environment #52870.
89
90 Update default PATH ordering to try to follow default behavior in
91 other distro's and because it's logical that /usr/local should
92 override /usr which should override /. Fixes #12531.
93
94 Move devfs stuff out of baselayout and into the devfsd package.
95
96 Don't run /sbin/pam_console_apply -r if using udev on /dev #50315.
97
98 14 Oct 2004; Aron Griffis <agriffis@gentoo.org>:
99
100 Fix rc-status to work with new COLS code.
101
102 14 Oct 2004; Mike Frysinger <vapier@gentoo.org>:
103
104 Allow users to mount ramfs/tmpfs/ramdisk as their svcdir and
105 stop assuming ramfs==ramdisk #64079.
106
107 13 Oct 2004; Mike Frysinger <vapier@gentoo.org>:
108
109 Rework the code for managing /dev to make it more flexible for
110 users. Some don't want to use devfs/udev but rather just create
111 their own nodes. Handles some issues with #44906 / #67276.
112
113 Move the utmp clearing code out of bootmisc and into /sbin/rc.
114 The utmp log must be cleared while in the initial boot level
115 (meaning inside /sbin/rc) because as soon as rc exists, init
116 writes a 'boot' record (`who -b`) which would normally be lost
117 when the bootmisc init.d script is run #61727.
118
119 13 Oct 2004; Aron Griffis <agriffis@gentoo.org>:
120
121 Cosmetic fixes for starting loopback interface
122
123 SpanKY doesn't like the dots... disable them by default, but you
124 can set RC_DOT_PATTERN=' .' in /etc/conf.d/rc to get them back
125
126* rc-scripts 1.6.2 (13 Oct 2004)
127
128 13 Oct 2004; Aron Griffis <agriffis@gentoo.org>:
129
130 Install net.modules.d to /lib/rcscripts instead of /etc so we
131 don't have to deal with CONFIG_PROTECT
132
133 Fix diff code in modules_load so it can identify which functions
134 have been modified
135
136 Fix fallback mechanism in iface_start so that it works correctly
137 and doesn't report a bogus error message when trying the fallback
138
139 Get rid of need_begin trickery in iface_stop
140
141 Simplify eend processing in dhcp modules
142
143 Implement eindent, eoutdent, esetdent in functions.sh and adjust
144 net-scripts to use them.
145
146 Re-write einfo, ewarn, eerror, ebegin, eend, ewend to use
147 RC_INDENTATION and to work better on serial terminals
148
149 Remove conf.d/net.ppp0 since that is provided by net-dialup/ppp
150
151 12 Oct 2004; Aron Griffis <agriffis@gentoo.org>:
152
153 Fix ipaddr_fallback in net-scripts/conf.d/net.example
154
155 09 Oct 2004; Aron Griffis <agriffis@gentoo.org>:
156
157 Remove init.d/net.eth0 net.lo and net.ppp0. The first two are
158 provided now by net-scripts and net.ppp0 is shipped in
159 net-dialup/ppp
160
161 Create NET_FS_LIST and is_net_fs in functions.sh and use them in
162 checkroot, localmount, netmount, net.example, and net.lo
163
164 09 Oct 2004; Mike Frysinger <vapier@gentoo.org>:
165
166 If the hostname has already been set via the kernel/dhcp, don't
167 force it to 'localhost'. Used in netboot/terminal setups #38172.
168
169 Add domainname to default boot runlevel list #47041.
170
171 08 Oct 2004; Mike Frysinger <vapier@gentoo.org>:
172
173 Make sure that when we try to mount /sys, we do so with -n (tigger).
174
175 Add some examples for nfs to sysctl.conf #66575.
176
177 06 Oct 2004; Aron Griffis <agriffis@gentoo.org>:
178
179 Update to net-scripts 1.0.2 from Roy
180 ------------------------------------
181 - wireless module: replaced preferred_only var with
182 associate_order this makes more sense now as we have changed the
183 possible values
184 - wireless module: added patch from Daniel Zappala we should call
185 wireless_get_essid everywhere now
186 - wireless module: don't declare ESSID local in
187 wireless_configure(). This allows ESSID to be tested in the
188 user defined postup() function
189 - wireless module: test type != "NOT READY!" instead of testing =
190 IEEE. this resolves problems with intel and ra-tech drivers
191 - net.lo start() now errors when the interface does not exist
192 - dhcpcd, dhclient, udhcpc and pump now expose peer_* vars this
193 enables wireless to map them from peer_dns_ESSID
194 - config-system helper now loads wireless module to remap
195 variables from ESSID this allows udhcpc and dhclient to use
196 remapped wireless vars
197 - fixed dhcpcd and pump modules using peer_* vars
198 - wireless aborts after 5 seconds if it cannot report a valid
199 ESSID this fixes a potential infinite loop problem
200 - wireless_setup_iface() renamed to wireless_map_essid_vars() this
201 avoids confusion about what the function actually does
202
203 06 Oct 2004; Mike Frysinger <vapier@gentoo.org>:
204
205 Change the default net.ipv4.conf.default.rp_filter setting to 1
206 in sysctl.conf since it shouldn't be harmful in anyway. Redhat
207 does the same.
208
209 05 Oct 2004; Aron Griffis <agriffis@gentoo.org>:
210
211 Get rid of getcols() in sbin/functions.sh. Use COLUMNS when
212 possible and otherwise clean up the COLS code. Fix the "emerge
213 depend" detection code to use RC_ENDCOL="no"
214
215 05 Oct 2004; Mike Frysinger <vapier@gentoo.org>:
216
217 Changed behavior of the domainname init.d script. It will now
218 override any settings obtained via dhcp/whatever. See #48277.
219
220 Updated bootmisc to dump the output of `dmesg` to /var/log/dmesg.
221 This way users have an 'after-boot' log of their dmesg saved
222 somewhere useful #55421.
223
224 Added the 'eend' back to depscan.sh since the script starts with a
225 call to 'ebegin' #59694.
226
227 Add selinux update from Chris PeBenito for src/runscript.c #64019.
228
229 Add more quoting to rc-help.sh to fix some non-critical errors.
230 Make rc-help.sh respect the value of RC_NOCOLOR. Allow RC_NOCOLOR
231 in functions.sh to be set via the environment.
232
233 Flesh out the default sysctl.conf with comments and more examples
234 since our previous one was pretty sparse #59993.
235
236 Change calls to `uniq` to `sort -u` in checkroot/halt.sh. This way
237 we only require sort in / and not both #36453.
238
239 04 Oct 2004; Mike Frysinger <vapier@gentoo.org>:
240
241 More (I mean a LOT more) services. This takes care of #44458,
242 #52881 #55939 #58997 #66166 #66297. Gleaned many from the IANA
243 list/Fedora/FreeBSD/Debian.
244
245 Change the test for /proc/cmdline from -e to -r. On grsecurity
246 based systems for example, the file may exist, but not be readable
247 by non-root users (patch by Ned Ludd).
248
249 03 Oct 2004; Mike Frysinger <vapier@gentoo.org>:
250
251 Add support for NFSv4 from #25106 to the netmount script. Don't
252 try to fsck / if the root is a remote filesystem (like NFS) #36624.
253
254 Update the fs_passno values in the default fstab to match the
255 settings suggested by the manpage #37314. Make checkroot respect
256 a fs_passno setting of 0 when dealing with / #39212. Change
257 default / filesystem type to ext3 instead of xfs #42670.
258
259 Re-order the arguments to mount to match POSIX requirements #66225.
260
261 Don't pipe swapon in localmount to /dev/null and ignore return
262 codes anymore. A swapon that works shows no output #39834.
263
264 02 Oct 2004; Mike Frysinger <vapier@gentoo.org>:
265
266 Break up the COL/COLOR code properly this time. Not all serial
267 consoles can handle adjusting to the end of the line, so let's not
268 bother running stty at all anymore. This should fix up #32453.
269
270 30 Sep 2004; Mike Frysinger <vapier@gentoo.org>:
271
272 Disable cryptfs by default in the conf.d file. Also cleanup
273 the output generated in localmount/checkfs/halt.sh for dm-crypt.
274 Add an extra check so that cryptfs is only run when the conf.d
275 file exists as well as /bin/cryptsetup.
276
277 29 Sep 2004; Mike Frysinger <vapier@gentoo.org>:
278
279 Let glibc install nscd since different versions of glibc will
280 need to be handled differently. See #43076 by Rui Malheiro.
281
282 29 Sep 2004; Aron Griffis <agriffis@gentoo.org>:
283
284 Prefer ~/.dir_colors over /etc/DIR_COLORS when it exists #64489
285
286 27 Sep 2004; Aron Griffis <agriffis@gentoo.org>:
287
288 Clear the screen in .bash_logout #32330
289
290* rc-scripts 1.6.1 (27 Sep 2004)
291
292 27 Sep 2004; Aron Griffis <agriffis@gentoo.org>:
293
294 Update dm-crypt to work with multi-line configuration files.
295 Also don't set status in a subshell; it was being lost before.
296
297 23 Sep 2004; Mike Frysinger <vapier@gentoo.org>:
298
299 Rework the logic behind the $COLS code. It should not depend
300 on whether color is enabled. Also add a check for negative
301 values (like when using a serial console).
302
303* rc-scripts 1.6.0 (15 Sep 2004)
304
305 15 Sep 2004; Aron Griffis <agriffis@gentoo.org>:
306
307 Fix bug 64034: simplify netmount script's stop function so that
308 mountpoints containing spaces work correctly
309
310 Update tarball.sh to use net-scripts
311
312 14 Sep 2004; Aron Griffis <agriffis@gentoo.org>:
313
314 Commit dm-crypt enablement patch from Tigger (Rob Holland) in
315 bug 43146
316
317* rc-scripts 1.5.3 (18 Aug 2004)
318
319 18 Aug 2004; Aron Griffis <agriffis@gentoo.org>:
320
321 Fix bug 60719 (request for better error messages from runscript)
322 by allowing errors to show on the screen when they're encountered
323 in wrap_rcscript
324
325 Apply Spock's bootsplash patch from bug 45784. This moves most of
326 the splash functionality out of baselayout.
327
328 13 Aug 2004; Aron Griffis <agriffis@gentoo.org>:
329
330 Don't export PS1. Continuation of bug 26951, comments 60-62.
331
332* rc-scripts 1.5.2 (02 Aug 2004)
333
334 02 Aug 2004; Aron Griffis <agriffis@gentoo.org>:
335
336 Related to bug 38955, don't set INPUTRC. Instead patch bash so
337 that it looks for /etc/inputrc automatically if ~/.inputrc is
338 missing. This is better than using INPUTRC since that will
339 override even after the user creates ~/.inputrc.
340
341 Fix bug 54275: Don't set INFODIR. The correct variable used by
342 texinfo is INFOPATH, which is already set in 00basic. Setting
343 INFODIR is useless, and breaks a NetBSD cross compile from Gentoo
344
345 01 Aug 2004; Aron Griffis <agriffis@gentoo.org>:
346
347 Fix bug 58805: net.eth0 should use bridge so that bridge
348 interfaces are configured prior to net.br0 running
349
350 Fix bug 56856: Get rid of net.rej and integrate missing stuff to
351 conf.d/net
352
353 Apply half of spock's patch in bug 45784: Check for
354 conf.d/bootsplash instead of conf.d/bootsplash.conf
355
356 Fix bug 51351: Quote parsed output of /proc/filesystems to handle
357 octal sequences in mountpoint such as encoded spaces (\040)
358
359 Fix bug 46680: Add cifs support to localmount and netmount.
360 Thanks to Ronald Moesbergen for the patches
361
362 21 Jul 2004; Aron Griffis <agriffis@gentoo.org>:
363
364 Fix bug 26952: Use /etc/bash/bashrc to setup PS1, testing $- to
365 determine if shell is interactive. The new system-wide bashrc is
366 installed by bash-2.05b-r10
367
368 19 Jul 2004; Aron Griffis <agriffis@gentoo.org>:
369
370 Fix bug 38743: strip leading and trailing spaces from variable
371 values in genenviron.awk. Thanks to Marius Mauch for the patch.
372
373 09 Jul 2004; Aron Griffis <agriffis@gentoo.org>:
374
375 Fix bug 55576: swap words "start" and "stop" in runscript.sh error
376 message
377
378* rc-scripts 1.5.1 (28 Jun 2004)
379
380 28 Jun 2004; Aron Griffis <agriffis@gentoo.org>:
381
382 Fix dhcp in iface_start_ifconfig: It was re-using the variable
383 ${i} which would result in the following error:
384 /sbin/runscript.sh: line 441: ((: 16.141.88.153: syntax error
385 in expression (error token is ".141.88.153")
386
387 Use vlan_IFACE instead of iface_IFACE_vlans in net.eth0 for more
388 consistent vlan configuration. Thanks to robbat2 in bug 55394
389 (not fully resolved)
390
391 Add example for checking if root filesystem is NFS-mounted via
392 predown function in conf.d/net for bug 53104. This might be
393 better integrated at some point into net.eth0
394
395* rc-scripts 1.5.0 (26 Jun 2004)
396
397 26 Jun 2004; Aron Griffis <agriffis@gentoo.org>:
398
399 Fix bug 47659: support iproute2-style configuration. Thanks to
400 Dean Bailey for some fantastic patches, including documentation
401 for conf.d/net. This is a pretty huge re-write of net.eth0
402
403 Fix bug 34607: provide examples for in conf.d/net for preup,
404 postup, predown, postdown functions. Also pay attention to return
405 value from predown function (previously ignored)
406
407 15 Jun 2004; Aron Griffis <agriffis@gentoo.org>:
408
409 Fix bug 25975: support adsl in net.eth0. Thanks to Patrick McLean
410 for the initial pass at the code.
411
412 Fix bug 34140: add --servicelist option to rc-status. Thanks to
413 Eldad Zack for the patch.
414
415 Fix bug 37418: fix order of LVM and RAID in checkfs. Thanks to
416 Raimondo Giammanco for the patch.
417
418* rc-scripts 1.4.16 (06 Jun 2004)
419
420 06 Jun 2004; Aron Griffis <agriffis@gentoo.org>:
421
422 Only call generate-modprobe.conf with --assume-kernel if
423 modules-update was called with --assume-kernel. This means that
424 only catalyst has the dependency on module-init-tools, not
425 everybody with the newer baselayout
426
427* rc-scripts 1.4.15 (21 May 2004)
428
429 21 May 2004; Aron Grifis <agriffis@gentoo.org>:
430
431 Fix bug 51570: typo on line 161 of /sbin/livecd-functions.sh
432
433 Fix bug 51626: wrong variable declaration at top of
434 get_bootparam() in /sbin/functions.sh
435
436* rc-scripts 1.4.14 (17 May 2004)
437
438 17 May 2004; Aron Griffis <agriffis@gentoo.org>:
439
440 Bump version to 1.4.14 to push out gmsoft's fix for hppa console
441 on ttyB0
442
443* rc-scripts 1.4.13 (15 May 2004)
444
445 15 May 2004; Aron Griffis <agriffis@gentoo.org>:
446
447 Bump version to 1.4.13 to push out Gustavo's livecd serial console
448 fixes for sparc and hppa.
449
450* rc-scripts 1.4.12 (07 May 2004)
451
452 10 May 2004; Aron Griffis <agriffis@gentoo.org>:
453
454 Bump version to 1.4.12 to release these critical bug fixes
455
456 Fix bug 50434: The new version of start-stop-daemon changes
457 directory to / by default unless --chdir is specified. Revert
458 this behavior to maintain working directory. This fixes openvpn
459 startup (probably among other things). Thanks to Sven Wegener for
460 the patch.
461
462 Fix bug 50448: Four days ago I changed bash loops to use the wrong
463 conditional syntax in net.eth0. Thanks to Sven Wegener for
464 pointing out the problem and providing a patch.
465
466* rc-scripts 1.4.11 (07 May 2004)
467
468 07 May 2004; Aron Griffis <agriffis@gentoo.org>:
469
470 Fix bug 20597: Skip RCS files when updating modules
471
472 Fix bug 49926: Add a --assume-kernel flag to modules-update. This
473 requires a companion patch in module-init-tools-3.0-r2 to handle
474 the same flag in generate-modprobe.conf; this dependency won't be
475 handled in the baselayout ebuild since it only affects livecd
476 building.
477
478 06 May 2004; Aron Griffis <agriffis@gentoo.org>:
479
480 In net.eth0, fix many instances of loops like "for ((i = 0; i <
481 100; i = i + 1))". The problem here is that the middle comparison
482 is being interpreted as a bash conditional, which means that it's
483 doing string comparison by default. It needs to be "i -lt 100"
484
485 Fix bug 34827: net.eth0 breaks when localized because the ifconfig
486 output changes. Wrap ifconfig in a function that overrides
487 LC_ALL=C
488
489 Fix bug 48305: Provide a new network configuration variable
490 ifconfig_fallback_eth0 which allows one to specify a fallback
491 configuration in case DHCP fails.
492
493 Fix bug 50246: Give root an invalid password ("*" in /etc/shadow)
494 in the default baselayout. This prevents the first reboot after
495 installation from having a blank password.
496
497 05 May 2004; Aron Griffis <agriffis@gentoo.org>:
498
499 Fix bug 48595: Make sure $(id -u) is zero (root user) when running
500 init scripts to avoid a lot of error messages.
501
502 Replace many lines of awk with two lines of grep in
503 init.d/localmount
504
505 Fix bug 44316: Use 0644 instead of 0640 for resolv.conf in net.ppp0
506
507 03 May 2004; Aron Griffis <agriffis@gentoo.org>:
508
509 Update to version 1.10.20 of Debian's start-stop-daemon (contained
510 in dpkg at http://packages.debian.org/testing/base/dpkg). This
511 fixes bug 22686 (start-stop-daemon in baselayout doesn't allow
512 altered nicelevel).
513
514* rc-scripts 1.4.10 (25 Apr 2004)
515
516 25 Apr 2004; Aron Griffis <agriffis@gentoo.org>:
517
518 Fix typos in sbin/rc: "try try mount" and "mount ... & >/dev/null"
519 Also removed the errstr double-checking since the need for that is
520 alleviated by these typo fixes.
521
522 23 Apr 2004; Aron Griffis <agriffis@gentoo.org>:
523
524 Fix bug 48629 (/sbin/rc fixups for udev) with patch from GregKH
525
526 Fix bug 40987 (gentoo should be able to boot with an empty /dev)
527 with patch from Spanky. The patch avoids redirection to /dev/null
528 when it doesn't exist; this was breaking /sbin/rc.
529
530* rc-scripts 1.4.9 (15 Apr 2004)
531
532 15 Apr 2004; Aron Griffis <agriffis@gentoo.org>:

535 dswhite42 and the rest of the crew in that bug. Thanks guys!
536
537* rc-scripts 1.4.8 (14 Apr 2004)
538
539 14 Apr 2004; Aron Griffis <agriffis@gentoo.org>:
540
541 Fix bug 47623 (error removing inet6 addresses) with patch provided
542 by Vlad Yasevich.
543
544* rc-scripts 1.4.7 (12 Apr 2004)
545
546 12 Apr 2004; Aron Griffis <agriffis@gentoo.org>:
547
548 Fix bug 47218 (net.eth0 broken for vlans) with patch provided by
549 Andy Dustman. Fix bug 47250 (depscan.sh fails to create
550 /var/lib/init.d/* directories) with patch from Terje Bergström.
551
552* rc-scripts 1.4.6 (08 Apr 2004)
553
554 08 Apr 2004; Aron Griffis <agriffis@gentoo.org>:
555
556 Update patch from Gustavoz; -ln /bin/bash should have been -nl /bin/bash
557
558* rc-scripts 1.4.5 (08 Apr 2004)
559
560 08 Apr 2004; Aron Griffis <agriffis@gentoo.org>:
561
562 Patch init.d/checkroot to list / (root) only once in mtab; see bug 38360.
563 Patch from Gustavoz to livecd-functions.sh to run bash instead of login on
564 serial consoles, necessary due to scrambled root passwords.
565
566* rc-scripts 1.4.4 (07 Apr 2004)
567
568 07 Apr 2004; Aron Griffis <agriffis@gentoo.org>:
569
570 Patch from Gustavoz for Sparc console: Fetch LIVECD_CONSOLE from dmesg
571 output. Also support 4800 baud correctly.

575 The changes in this commit pertain primarily to
576 http://bugs.gentoo.org/show_bug.cgi?id=19695
577 http://bugs.gentoo.org/show_bug.cgi?id=35736
578
579 Specify routes as an array per interface, for example:
580 routes_eth0=(
581 "-net 10.1.0.0 netmask 255.255.0.0 gw 10.0.0.5"
582 "-net 10.2.0.0 netmask 255.255.0.0 gw 10.0.0.6"
583 "-host 10.3.0.1 dev eth0"
584 )
585
586 You can optionally use the gateway variable or just put the default route
587 in the routes variable. The following two are REDUNDANT:
588
589 routes_eth0=( "default gw 10.0.0.5" )
590 gateway="eth0/10.0.0.5"
591
592 Old configuration variables in /etc/conf.d/net are fully supported and
593 used transparently if ifconfig_eth0 is missing. In other words, this new
594 script is fully backward-compatible. However you can get rid of
595 iface_eth0, alias_eth0, broadcast_eth0 and netmask_eth0 if you want by
596 using the new syntax:
597
598 ifconfig_eth0=(
599 "10.0.0.6 broadcast 10.0.255.255 netmask 255.255.0.0"
600 "192.168.1.1 netmask 255.255.255.0"
601 "123.456.789.1"
602 )
603
604 Full backward compatibility so no danger to screwing up users relying on
605 existing /etc/conf.d/net setup
606
607 NET_DEBUG can be set in the environment for copious debugging output
608
609 Deprecate [ ] in favor of [[ ]] which has fewer quoting issues and
610 better functionality (and is even slightly faster)
611
612 Properly localize all variables, including variables returned by
613 setup_vars
614
615 Allow full options for every ifconfig command, both base address and
616 aliases via ifconfig_eth0, replacing the convoluted and less-functional
617 iface_eth0, alias_eth0, broadcast_eth0, netmask_eth0
618
619 Provide full support for static routes via routes_eth0
620
621 Fix potential quoting problems in setup_vars by using better eval syntax
622 instead of eval echo
623
624 Display IP addresses while configuring, both DHCP-retrieved and
625 statically set addresses
626
627 Collapse redundant caching of $? since eend returns $? again
628
629 Report when keeping kernel configuration for an interface along with IP
630 address gleaned
631
632 Don't reset the default gateway if it is already set correctly
633
634 Don't bind default gateway to particular interface when /sbin/route is
635 called so that it can survive if there is more than one interface on the
636 required subnet. (Old behavior can be obtained by setting
637 routes_eth0="default gw 1.2.3.4 dev eth0" if you really want it)
638
639 Don't bomb if default gateway can't be set since that doesn't
640 necessarily mean that the interface configuration is invalid.
641 (Old behavior was completely broken, but commented section
642 demonstrates how to do it right if necessary)
643
644 iface_stop no longer relies on configuration in /etc/conf.d/net AT ALL.
645 This is very good because it means you can put new configuration in
646 /etc/conf.d/net, then restart the interface and the old configuration will
647 be properly shut down.
648
649 iface_stop reports when it is releasing the DHCP lease
650
651* rc-scripts 1.4.3.13p1 (26 Feb 2004)
652
653 26 Feb 2004; Martin Schlemmer <azarah@gentoo.org>:
654
655 Remove /etc/DIR_COLORS, as coreutils provides it now.
656
657 Add RC_DEVICE_TARBALL to /etc/conf.d/rc to control use of device tarball.
658 Also modified /sbin/rc and /etc/init.d/halt.sh for this.
659
660 Start udevd if present.
661
662 Small fix to sbin/rc-services.sh related to mtime checking and 'net'
663 virtual service - it had no mtime generated, so check_mtime() failed
664 for it ...
665
666 25 Feb 2004; Martin Schlemmer <azarah@gentoo.org>:
667
668 Update to enable checking of mtimes on rc-scripts, and auto running
669 depscan.sh if needed. Also try to run depscan.sh when RC_GOT_DEPTREE_INFO
670 is not set instead of just erroring.
