5* rc-scripts 1.5.0 (26 Jun 2004)
6
7 26 Jun 2004; Aron Griffis <agriffis@gentoo.org>:
8
9 Fix bug 47659: support iproute2-style configuration. Thanks to
10 Dean Bailey for some fantastic patches, including documentation
11 for conf.d/net. This is a pretty huge re-write of net.eth0
12
13 Fix bug 34607: provide examples for in conf.d/net for preup,
14 postup, predown, postdown functions. Also pay attention to return
15 value from predown function (previously ignored)
16
17 15 Jun 2004; Aron Griffis <agriffis@gentoo.org>:
18
19 Fix bug 25975: support adsl in net.eth0. Thanks to Patrick McLean
20 for the initial pass at the code.
21
22 Fix bug 34140: add --servicelist option to rc-status. Thanks to
23 Eldad Zack for the patch.
24
25 Fix bug 37418: fix order of LVM and RAID in checkfs. Thanks to
26 Raimondo Giammanco for the patch.
27
28* rc-scripts 1.4.16 (06 Jun 2004)
29
30 06 Jun 2004; Aron Griffis <agriffis@gentoo.org>:
31
32 Only call generate-modprobe.conf with --assume-kernel if
33 modules-update was called with --assume-kernel. This means that
34 only catalyst has the dependency on module-init-tools, not
35 everybody with the newer baselayout
36
37* rc-scripts 1.4.15 (21 May 2004)
38
39 21 May 2004; Aron Grifis <agriffis@gentoo.org>:
40
41 Fix bug 51570: typo on line 161 of /sbin/livecd-functions.sh
42
43 Fix bug 51626: wrong variable declaration at top of
44 get_bootparam() in /sbin/functions.sh
45
46* rc-scripts 1.4.14 (17 May 2004)
47
48 17 May 2004; Aron Griffis <agriffis@gentoo.org>:
49
50 Bump version to 1.4.14 to push out gmsoft's fix for hppa console
51 on ttyB0
52
53* rc-scripts 1.4.13 (15 May 2004)
54
55 15 May 2004; Aron Griffis <agriffis@gentoo.org>:
56
57 Bump version to 1.4.13 to push out Gustavo's livecd serial console
58 fixes for sparc and hppa.
59
60* rc-scripts 1.4.12 (07 May 2004)
61
62 10 May 2004; Aron Griffis <agriffis@gentoo.org>:
63
64 Bump version to 1.4.12 to release these critical bug fixes
65
66 Fix bug 50434: The new version of start-stop-daemon changes
67 directory to / by default unless --chdir is specified. Revert
68 this behavior to maintain working directory. This fixes openvpn
69 startup (probably among other things). Thanks to Sven Wegener for
70 the patch.
71
72 Fix bug 50448: Four days ago I changed bash loops to use the wrong
73 conditional syntax in net.eth0. Thanks to Sven Wegener for
74 pointing out the problem and providing a patch.
75
76* rc-scripts 1.4.11 (07 May 2004)
77
78 07 May 2004; Aron Griffis <agriffis@gentoo.org>:
79
80 Fix bug 20597: Skip RCS files when updating modules
81
82 Fix bug 49926: Add a --assume-kernel flag to modules-update. This
83 requires a companion patch in module-init-tools-3.0-r2 to handle
84 the same flag in generate-modprobe.conf; this dependency won't be
85 handled in the baselayout ebuild since it only affects livecd
86 building.
87
88 06 May 2004; Aron Griffis <agriffis@gentoo.org>:
89
90 In net.eth0, fix many instances of loops like "for ((i = 0; i <
91 100; i = i + 1))". The problem here is that the middle comparison
92 is being interpreted as a bash conditional, which means that it's
93 doing string comparison by default. It needs to be "i -lt 100"
94
95 Fix bug 34827: net.eth0 breaks when localized because the ifconfig
96 output changes. Wrap ifconfig in a function that overrides
97 LC_ALL=C
98
99 Fix bug 48305: Provide a new network configuration variable
100 ifconfig_fallback_eth0 which allows one to specify a fallback
101 configuration in case DHCP fails.
102
103 Fix bug 50246: Give root an invalid password ("*" in /etc/shadow)
104 in the default baselayout. This prevents the first reboot after
105 installation from having a blank password.
106
107 05 May 2004; Aron Griffis <agriffis@gentoo.org>:
108
109 Fix bug 48595: Make sure $(id -u) is zero (root user) when running
110 init scripts to avoid a lot of error messages.
111
112 Replace many lines of awk with two lines of grep in
113 init.d/localmount
114
115 Fix bug 44316: Use 0644 instead of 0640 for resolv.conf in net.ppp0
116
117 03 May 2004; Aron Griffis <agriffis@gentoo.org>:
118
119 Update to version 1.10.20 of Debian's start-stop-daemon (contained
120 in dpkg at http://packages.debian.org/testing/base/dpkg). This
121 fixes bug 22686 (start-stop-daemon in baselayout doesn't allow
122 altered nicelevel).
123
124* rc-scripts 1.4.10 (25 Apr 2004)
125
126 25 Apr 2004; Aron Griffis <agriffis@gentoo.org>:
127
128 Fix typos in sbin/rc: "try try mount" and "mount ... & >/dev/null"
129 Also removed the errstr double-checking since the need for that is
130 alleviated by these typo fixes.
131
132 23 Apr 2004; Aron Griffis <agriffis@gentoo.org>:
133
134 Fix bug 48629 (/sbin/rc fixups for udev) with patch from GregKH
135
136 Fix bug 40987 (gentoo should be able to boot with an empty /dev)
137 with patch from Spanky. The patch avoids redirection to /dev/null
138 when it doesn't exist; this was breaking /sbin/rc.
139
140* rc-scripts 1.4.9 (15 Apr 2004)
141
142 15 Apr 2004; Aron Griffis <agriffis@gentoo.org>:
143
144 Fix bug 47111 (severe depcache problems) with tons of help from
145 dswhite42 and the rest of the crew in that bug. Thanks guys!
146
147* rc-scripts 1.4.8 (14 Apr 2004)
148
149 14 Apr 2004; Aron Griffis <agriffis@gentoo.org>:
150
151 Fix bug 47623 (error removing inet6 addresses) with patch provided
152 by Vlad Yasevich.
153
154* rc-scripts 1.4.7 (12 Apr 2004)
155
156 12 Apr 2004; Aron Griffis <agriffis@gentoo.org>:
157
158 Fix bug 47218 (net.eth0 broken for vlans) with patch provided by
159 Andy Dustman. Fix bug 47250 (depscan.sh fails to create
160 /var/lib/init.d/* directories) with patch from Terje Bergström.
161
162* rc-scripts 1.4.6 (08 Apr 2004)
163
164 08 Apr 2004; Aron Griffis <agriffis@gentoo.org>:
165
166 Update patch from Gustavoz; -ln /bin/bash should have been -nl /bin/bash
167
168* rc-scripts 1.4.5 (08 Apr 2004)
169
170 08 Apr 2004; Aron Griffis <agriffis@gentoo.org>:
171
172 Patch init.d/checkroot to list / (root) only once in mtab; see bug 38360.
173 Patch from Gustavoz to livecd-functions.sh to run bash instead of login on
174 serial consoles, necessary due to scrambled root passwords.
175
176* rc-scripts 1.4.4 (07 Apr 2004)
177
178 07 Apr 2004; Aron Griffis <agriffis@gentoo.org>:
179
180 Patch from Gustavoz for Sparc console: Fetch LIVECD_CONSOLE from dmesg
181 output. Also support 4800 baud correctly.
182
183 16 Mar 2004; Aron Griffis <agriffis@gentoo.org>:
184
185 The changes in this commit pertain primarily to
186 http://bugs.gentoo.org/show_bug.cgi?id=19695
187 http://bugs.gentoo.org/show_bug.cgi?id=35736
188
189 Specify routes as an array per interface, for example:
190 routes_eth0=(
191 "-net 10.1.0.0 netmask 255.255.0.0 gw 10.0.0.5"
192 "-net 10.2.0.0 netmask 255.255.0.0 gw 10.0.0.6"
193 "-host 10.3.0.1 dev eth0"
194 )
195
196 You can optionally use the gateway variable or just put the default route
197 in the routes variable. The following two are REDUNDANT:
198
199 routes_eth0=( "default gw 10.0.0.5" )
200 gateway="eth0/10.0.0.5"
201
202 Old configuration variables in /etc/conf.d/net are fully supported and
203 used transparently if ifconfig_eth0 is missing. In other words, this new
204 script is fully backward-compatible. However you can get rid of
205 iface_eth0, alias_eth0, broadcast_eth0 and netmask_eth0 if you want by
206 using the new syntax:
207
208 ifconfig_eth0=(
209 "10.0.0.6 broadcast 10.0.255.255 netmask 255.255.0.0"
210 "192.168.1.1 netmask 255.255.255.0"
211 "123.456.789.1"
212 )
213
214 Full backward compatibility so no danger to screwing up users relying on
215 existing /etc/conf.d/net setup
216
217 NET_DEBUG can be set in the environment for copious debugging output
218
219 Deprecate [ ] in favor of [[ ]] which has fewer quoting issues and
220 better functionality (and is even slightly faster)
221
222 Properly localize all variables, including variables returned by
223 setup_vars
224
225 Allow full options for every ifconfig command, both base address and
226 aliases via ifconfig_eth0, replacing the convoluted and less-functional
227 iface_eth0, alias_eth0, broadcast_eth0, netmask_eth0
228
229 Provide full support for static routes via routes_eth0
230
231 Fix potential quoting problems in setup_vars by using better eval syntax
232 instead of eval echo
233
234 Display IP addresses while configuring, both DHCP-retrieved and
235 statically set addresses
236
237 Collapse redundant caching of $? since eend returns $? again
238
239 Report when keeping kernel configuration for an interface along with IP
240 address gleaned
241
242 Don't reset the default gateway if it is already set correctly
243
244 Don't bind default gateway to particular interface when /sbin/route is
245 called so that it can survive if there is more than one interface on the
246 required subnet. (Old behavior can be obtained by setting
247 routes_eth0="default gw 1.2.3.4 dev eth0" if you really want it)
248
249 Don't bomb if default gateway can't be set since that doesn't
250 necessarily mean that the interface configuration is invalid.
251 (Old behavior was completely broken, but commented section
252 demonstrates how to do it right if necessary)
253
254 iface_stop no longer relies on configuration in /etc/conf.d/net AT ALL.
255 This is very good because it means you can put new configuration in
256 /etc/conf.d/net, then restart the interface and the old configuration will
257 be properly shut down.
258
259 iface_stop reports when it is releasing the DHCP lease
260
261* rc-scripts 1.4.3.13p1 (26 Feb 2004)
262
5 26 Feb 2004; Martin Schlemmer <azarah@gentoo.org>: 263 26 Feb 2004; Martin Schlemmer <azarah@gentoo.org>:
6 264
7 Remove /etc/DIR_COLORS, as coreutils provides it now. 265 Remove /etc/DIR_COLORS, as coreutils provides it now.
266
267 Add RC_DEVICE_TARBALL to /etc/conf.d/rc to control use of device tarball.
268 Also modified /sbin/rc and /etc/init.d/halt.sh for this.
269
270 Start udevd if present.
271
272 Small fix to sbin/rc-services.sh related to mtime checking and 'net'
273 virtual service - it had no mtime generated, so check_mtime() failed
274 for it ...
8 275
9 25 Feb 2004; Martin Schlemmer <azarah@gentoo.org>: 276 25 Feb 2004; Martin Schlemmer <azarah@gentoo.org>:
10 277
11 Update to enable checking of mtimes on rc-scripts, and auto running 278 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 279 depscan.sh if needed. Also try to run depscan.sh when RC_GOT_DEPTREE_INFO
