4 4
5* rc-scripts 1.4.13 (15 May 2004)
6
7 15 May 2004; Aron Griffis <agriffis@gentoo.org>:
8
9 Bump version to 1.4.13 to push out Gustavo's livecd serial console
10 fixes for sparc and hppa.
11
12* rc-scripts 1.4.12 (07 May 2004)
13
14 10 May 2004; Aron Griffis <agriffis@gentoo.org>:
15
16 Bump version to 1.4.12 to release these critical bug fixes
17
18 Fix bug 50434: The new version of start-stop-daemon changes
19 directory to / by default unless --chdir is specified. Revert
20 this behavior to maintain working directory. This fixes openvpn
21 startup (probably among other things). Thanks to Sven Wegener for
22 the patch.
23
24 Fix bug 50448: Four days ago I changed bash loops to use the wrong
25 conditional syntax in net.eth0. Thanks to Sven Wegener for
26 pointing out the problem and providing a patch.
27
28* rc-scripts 1.4.11 (07 May 2004)
29
30 07 May 2004; Aron Griffis <agriffis@gentoo.org>:
31
32 Fix bug 20597: Skip RCS files when updating modules
33
34 Fix bug 49926: Add a --assume-kernel flag to modules-update. This
35 requires a companion patch in module-init-tools-3.0-r2 to handle
36 the same flag in generate-modprobe.conf; this dependency won't be
37 handled in the baselayout ebuild since it only affects livecd
38 building.
39
40 06 May 2004; Aron Griffis <agriffis@gentoo.org>:
41
42 In net.eth0, fix many instances of loops like "for ((i = 0; i <
43 100; i = i + 1))". The problem here is that the middle comparison
44 is being interpreted as a bash conditional, which means that it's
45 doing string comparison by default. It needs to be "i -lt 100"
46
47 Fix bug 34827: net.eth0 breaks when localized because the ifconfig
48 output changes. Wrap ifconfig in a function that overrides
49 LC_ALL=C
50
51 Fix bug 48305: Provide a new network configuration variable
52 ifconfig_fallback_eth0 which allows one to specify a fallback
53 configuration in case DHCP fails.
54
55 Fix bug 50246: Give root an invalid password ("*" in /etc/shadow)
56 in the default baselayout. This prevents the first reboot after
57 installation from having a blank password.
58
59 05 May 2004; Aron Griffis <agriffis@gentoo.org>:
60
61 Fix bug 48595: Make sure $(id -u) is zero (root user) when running
62 init scripts to avoid a lot of error messages.
63
64 Replace many lines of awk with two lines of grep in
65 init.d/localmount
66
67 Fix bug 44316: Use 0644 instead of 0640 for resolv.conf in net.ppp0
68
69 03 May 2004; Aron Griffis <agriffis@gentoo.org>:
70
71 Update to version 1.10.20 of Debian's start-stop-daemon (contained
72 in dpkg at http://packages.debian.org/testing/base/dpkg). This
73 fixes bug 22686 (start-stop-daemon in baselayout doesn't allow
74 altered nicelevel).
75
76* rc-scripts 1.4.10 (25 Apr 2004)
77
78 25 Apr 2004; Aron Griffis <agriffis@gentoo.org>:
79
80 Fix typos in sbin/rc: "try try mount" and "mount ... & >/dev/null"
81 Also removed the errstr double-checking since the need for that is
82 alleviated by these typo fixes.
83
84 23 Apr 2004; Aron Griffis <agriffis@gentoo.org>:
85
86 Fix bug 48629 (/sbin/rc fixups for udev) with patch from GregKH
87
88 Fix bug 40987 (gentoo should be able to boot with an empty /dev)
89 with patch from Spanky. The patch avoids redirection to /dev/null
90 when it doesn't exist; this was breaking /sbin/rc.
91
92* rc-scripts 1.4.9 (15 Apr 2004)
93
94 15 Apr 2004; Aron Griffis <agriffis@gentoo.org>:
95
96 Fix bug 47111 (severe depcache problems) with tons of help from
97 dswhite42 and the rest of the crew in that bug. Thanks guys!
98
99* rc-scripts 1.4.8 (14 Apr 2004)
100
101 14 Apr 2004; Aron Griffis <agriffis@gentoo.org>:
102
103 Fix bug 47623 (error removing inet6 addresses) with patch provided
104 by Vlad Yasevich.
105
106* rc-scripts 1.4.7 (12 Apr 2004)
107
108 12 Apr 2004; Aron Griffis <agriffis@gentoo.org>:
109
110 Fix bug 47218 (net.eth0 broken for vlans) with patch provided by
111 Andy Dustman. Fix bug 47250 (depscan.sh fails to create
112 /var/lib/init.d/* directories) with patch from Terje Bergström.
113
114* rc-scripts 1.4.6 (08 Apr 2004)
115
116 08 Apr 2004; Aron Griffis <agriffis@gentoo.org>:
117
118 Update patch from Gustavoz; -ln /bin/bash should have been -nl /bin/bash
119
120* rc-scripts 1.4.5 (08 Apr 2004)
121
122 08 Apr 2004; Aron Griffis <agriffis@gentoo.org>:
123
124 Patch init.d/checkroot to list / (root) only once in mtab; see bug 38360.
125 Patch from Gustavoz to livecd-functions.sh to run bash instead of login on
126 serial consoles, necessary due to scrambled root passwords.
127
128* rc-scripts 1.4.4 (07 Apr 2004)
129
130 07 Apr 2004; Aron Griffis <agriffis@gentoo.org>:
131
132 Patch from Gustavoz for Sparc console: Fetch LIVECD_CONSOLE from dmesg
133 output. Also support 4800 baud correctly.
134
135 16 Mar 2004; Aron Griffis <agriffis@gentoo.org>:
136
137 The changes in this commit pertain primarily to
138 http://bugs.gentoo.org/show_bug.cgi?id=19695
139 http://bugs.gentoo.org/show_bug.cgi?id=35736
140
141 Specify routes as an array per interface, for example:
142 routes_eth0=(
143 "-net 10.1.0.0 netmask 255.255.0.0 gw 10.0.0.5"
144 "-net 10.2.0.0 netmask 255.255.0.0 gw 10.0.0.6"
145 "-host 10.3.0.1 dev eth0"
146 )
147
148 You can optionally use the gateway variable or just put the default route
149 in the routes variable. The following two are REDUNDANT:
150
151 routes_eth0=( "default gw 10.0.0.5" )
152 gateway="eth0/10.0.0.5"
153
154 Old configuration variables in /etc/conf.d/net are fully supported and
155 used transparently if ifconfig_eth0 is missing. In other words, this new
156 script is fully backward-compatible. However you can get rid of
157 iface_eth0, alias_eth0, broadcast_eth0 and netmask_eth0 if you want by
158 using the new syntax:
159
160 ifconfig_eth0=(
161 "10.0.0.6 broadcast 10.0.255.255 netmask 255.255.0.0"
162 "192.168.1.1 netmask 255.255.255.0"
163 "123.456.789.1"
164 )
165
166 Full backward compatibility so no danger to screwing up users relying on
167 existing /etc/conf.d/net setup
168
169 NET_DEBUG can be set in the environment for copious debugging output
170
171 Deprecate [ ] in favor of [[ ]] which has fewer quoting issues and
172 better functionality (and is even slightly faster)
173
174 Properly localize all variables, including variables returned by
175 setup_vars
176
177 Allow full options for every ifconfig command, both base address and
178 aliases via ifconfig_eth0, replacing the convoluted and less-functional
179 iface_eth0, alias_eth0, broadcast_eth0, netmask_eth0
180
181 Provide full support for static routes via routes_eth0
182
183 Fix potential quoting problems in setup_vars by using better eval syntax
184 instead of eval echo
185
186 Display IP addresses while configuring, both DHCP-retrieved and
187 statically set addresses
188
189 Collapse redundant caching of $? since eend returns $? again
190
191 Report when keeping kernel configuration for an interface along with IP
192 address gleaned
193
194 Don't reset the default gateway if it is already set correctly
195
196 Don't bind default gateway to particular interface when /sbin/route is
197 called so that it can survive if there is more than one interface on the
198 required subnet. (Old behavior can be obtained by setting
199 routes_eth0="default gw 1.2.3.4 dev eth0" if you really want it)
200
201 Don't bomb if default gateway can't be set since that doesn't
202 necessarily mean that the interface configuration is invalid.
203 (Old behavior was completely broken, but commented section
204 demonstrates how to do it right if necessary)
205
206 iface_stop no longer relies on configuration in /etc/conf.d/net AT ALL.
207 This is very good because it means you can put new configuration in
208 /etc/conf.d/net, then restart the interface and the old configuration will
209 be properly shut down.
210
211 iface_stop reports when it is releasing the DHCP lease
212
213* rc-scripts 1.4.3.13p1 (26 Feb 2004)
214
5 26 Feb 2004; Martin Schlemmer <azarah@gentoo.org>: 215 26 Feb 2004; Martin Schlemmer <azarah@gentoo.org>:
6 216
7 Remove /etc/DIR_COLORS, as coreutils provides it now. 217 Remove /etc/DIR_COLORS, as coreutils provides it now.
218
219 Add RC_DEVICE_TARBALL to /etc/conf.d/rc to control use of device tarball.
220 Also modified /sbin/rc and /etc/init.d/halt.sh for this.
221
222 Start udevd if present.
223
224 Small fix to sbin/rc-services.sh related to mtime checking and 'net'
225 virtual service - it had no mtime generated, so check_mtime() failed
226 for it ...
8 227
9 25 Feb 2004; Martin Schlemmer <azarah@gentoo.org>: 228 25 Feb 2004; Martin Schlemmer <azarah@gentoo.org>:
10 229
11 Update to enable checking of mtimes on rc-scripts, and auto running 230 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 231 depscan.sh if needed. Also try to run depscan.sh when RC_GOT_DEPTREE_INFO
