5 25 Apr 2004; Aron Griffis <agriffis@gentoo.org>:
6
7 Fix typos in sbin/rc: "try try mount" and "mount ... & >/dev/null"
8 Also removed the errstr double-checking since the need for that is
9 alleviated by these typo fixes.
10
11 23 Apr 2004; Aron Griffis <agriffis@gentoo.org>:
12
13 Fix bug 48629 (/sbin/rc fixups for udev) with patch from GregKH
14
15 Fix bug 40987 (gentoo should be able to boot with an empty /dev)
16 with patch from Spanky. The patch avoids redirection to /dev/null
17 when it doesn't exist; this was breaking /sbin/rc.
18
19* rc-scripts 1.4.9 (15 Apr 2004)

21 15 Apr 2004; Aron Griffis <agriffis@gentoo.org>:

23 Fix bug 47111 (severe depcache problems) with tons of help from
24 dswhite42 and the rest of the crew in that bug. Thanks guys!
25
26* rc-scripts 1.4.8 (14 Apr 2004)
27
28 14 Apr 2004; Aron Griffis <agriffis@gentoo.org>:

31 by Vlad Yasevich.
32
33* rc-scripts 1.4.7 (12 Apr 2004)
34
35 12 Apr 2004; Aron Griffis <agriffis@gentoo.org>:
36
37 Fix bug 47218 (net.eth0 broken for vlans) with patch provided by
38 Andy Dustman. Fix bug 47250 (depscan.sh fails to create
39 /var/lib/init.d/* directories) with patch from Terje Bergström.
40
41* rc-scripts 1.4.6 (08 Apr 2004)
42
43 08 Apr 2004; Aron Griffis <agriffis@gentoo.org>:

46
47* rc-scripts 1.4.5 (08 Apr 2004)
48
49 08 Apr 2004; Aron Griffis <agriffis@gentoo.org>:
50
51 Patch init.d/checkroot to list / (root) only once in mtab; see bug 38360.
52 Patch from Gustavoz to livecd-functions.sh to run bash instead of login on
53 serial consoles, necessary due to scrambled root passwords.
54
55* rc-scripts 1.4.4 (07 Apr 2004)
56
57 07 Apr 2004; Aron Griffis <agriffis@gentoo.org>:
58
59 Patch from Gustavoz for Sparc console: Fetch LIVECD_CONSOLE from dmesg
60 output. Also support 4800 baud correctly.

62 16 Mar 2004; Aron Griffis <agriffis@gentoo.org>:

64 The changes in this commit pertain primarily to
65 http://bugs.gentoo.org/show_bug.cgi?id=19695
66 http://bugs.gentoo.org/show_bug.cgi?id=35736
67
68 Specify routes as an array per interface, for example:
69 routes_eth0=(
70 "-net 10.1.0.0 netmask 255.255.0.0 gw 10.0.0.5"
71 "-net 10.2.0.0 netmask 255.255.0.0 gw 10.0.0.6"
72 "-host 10.3.0.1 dev eth0"
73 )
74
75 You can optionally use the gateway variable or just put the default route
76 in the routes variable. The following two are REDUNDANT:
77
78 routes_eth0=( "default gw 10.0.0.5" )
79 gateway="eth0/10.0.0.5"
80
81 Old configuration variables in /etc/conf.d/net are fully supported and
82 used transparently if ifconfig_eth0 is missing. In other words, this new
83 script is fully backward-compatible. However you can get rid of
84 iface_eth0, alias_eth0, broadcast_eth0 and netmask_eth0 if you want by
85 using the new syntax:
86
87 ifconfig_eth0=(
88 "10.0.0.6 broadcast 10.0.255.255 netmask 255.255.0.0"
89 "192.168.1.1 netmask 255.255.255.0"
90 "123.456.789.1"
91 )
92
93 Full backward compatibility so no danger to screwing up users relying on
94 existing /etc/conf.d/net setup
95
96 NET_DEBUG can be set in the environment for copious debugging output
97
98 Deprecate [ ] in favor of [[ ]] which has fewer quoting issues and
99 better functionality (and is even slightly faster)
100
101 Properly localize all variables, including variables returned by
102 setup_vars
103
104 Allow full options for every ifconfig command, both base address and
105 aliases via ifconfig_eth0, replacing the convoluted and less-functional
106 iface_eth0, alias_eth0, broadcast_eth0, netmask_eth0
107
108 Provide full support for static routes via routes_eth0
109
110 Fix potential quoting problems in setup_vars by using better eval syntax
111 instead of eval echo
112
113 Display IP addresses while configuring, both DHCP-retrieved and
114 statically set addresses
115
116 Collapse redundant caching of $? since eend returns $? again
117
118 Report when keeping kernel configuration for an interface along with IP
119 address gleaned
120
121 Don't reset the default gateway if it is already set correctly
122
123 Don't bind default gateway to particular interface when /sbin/route is
124 called so that it can survive if there is more than one interface on the
125 required subnet. (Old behavior can be obtained by setting
126 routes_eth0="default gw 1.2.3.4 dev eth0" if you really want it)
127
128 Don't bomb if default gateway can't be set since that doesn't
129 necessarily mean that the interface configuration is invalid.
130 (Old behavior was completely broken, but commented section
131 demonstrates how to do it right if necessary)
132
133 iface_stop no longer relies on configuration in /etc/conf.d/net AT ALL.
134 This is very good because it means you can put new configuration in
135 /etc/conf.d/net, then restart the interface and the old configuration will
136 be properly shut down.
137
138 iface_stop reports when it is releasing the DHCP lease
139
140* rc-scripts 1.4.3.13p1 (26 Feb 2004)

5 26 Feb 2004; Martin Schlemmer <azarah@gentoo.org>: 142 26 Feb 2004; Martin Schlemmer <azarah@gentoo.org>:
6 143
7 Remove /etc/DIR_COLORS, as coreutils provides it now. 144 Remove /etc/DIR_COLORS, as coreutils provides it now.
145
146 Add RC_DEVICE_TARBALL to /etc/conf.d/rc to control use of device tarball.
147 Also modified /sbin/rc and /etc/init.d/halt.sh for this.
148
149 Start udevd if present.
150
151 Small fix to sbin/rc-services.sh related to mtime checking and 'net'
152 virtual service - it had no mtime generated, so check_mtime() failed
153 for it ...

9 25 Feb 2004; Martin Schlemmer <azarah@gentoo.org>: 155 25 Feb 2004; Martin Schlemmer <azarah@gentoo.org>:
10 156
11 Update to enable checking of mtimes on rc-scripts, and auto running 157 Update to enable checking of mtimes on rc-scripts, and auto running
12 depscan.sh if needed. Also try to run depscan.sh when RC_GOT_DEPTREE_INFO 158 depscan.sh if needed. Also try to run depscan.sh when RC_GOT_DEPTREE_INFO
