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

483
484 Fix bug 48595: Make sure $(id -u) is zero (root user) when running
485 init scripts to avoid a lot of error messages.
486
487 Replace many lines of awk with two lines of grep in
488 init.d/localmount
489
490 Fix bug 44316: Use 0644 instead of 0640 for resolv.conf in net.ppp0
491
492 03 May 2004; Aron Griffis <agriffis@gentoo.org>:
493
494 Update to version 1.10.20 of Debian's start-stop-daemon (contained
495 in dpkg at http://packages.debian.org/testing/base/dpkg). This
496 fixes bug 22686 (start-stop-daemon in baselayout doesn't allow
497 altered nicelevel).
498
499* rc-scripts 1.4.10 (25 Apr 2004)
500
501 25 Apr 2004; Aron Griffis <agriffis@gentoo.org>:
502
503 Fix typos in sbin/rc: "try try mount" and "mount ... & >/dev/null"
504 Also removed the errstr double-checking since the need for that is
505 alleviated by these typo fixes.
506
507 23 Apr 2004; Aron Griffis <agriffis@gentoo.org>:
508
509 Fix bug 48629 (/sbin/rc fixups for udev) with patch from GregKH
510
511 Fix bug 40987 (gentoo should be able to boot with an empty /dev)
512 with patch from Spanky. The patch avoids redirection to /dev/null
513 when it doesn't exist; this was breaking /sbin/rc.
514
515* rc-scripts 1.4.9 (15 Apr 2004)
516

536
537* rc-scripts 1.4.6 (08 Apr 2004)
538

544
545 08 Apr 2004; Aron Griffis <agriffis@gentoo.org>:
546
547 Patch init.d/checkroot to list / (root) only once in mtab; see bug 38360.
548 Patch from Gustavoz to livecd-functions.sh to run bash instead of login on
549 serial consoles, necessary due to scrambled root passwords.
550
551* rc-scripts 1.4.4 (07 Apr 2004)
552
553 07 Apr 2004; Aron Griffis <agriffis@gentoo.org>:

555 Patch from Gustavoz for Sparc console: Fetch LIVECD_CONSOLE from dmesg
556 output. Also support 4800 baud correctly.

560 The changes in this commit pertain primarily to
561 http://bugs.gentoo.org/show_bug.cgi?id=19695
562 http://bugs.gentoo.org/show_bug.cgi?id=35736
563
564 Specify routes as an array per interface, for example:
565 routes_eth0=(
566 "-net 10.1.0.0 netmask 255.255.0.0 gw 10.0.0.5"
567 "-net 10.2.0.0 netmask 255.255.0.0 gw 10.0.0.6"
568 "-host 10.3.0.1 dev eth0"
569 )
570
571 You can optionally use the gateway variable or just put the default route
572 in the routes variable. The following two are REDUNDANT:
573
574 routes_eth0=( "default gw 10.0.0.5" )
575 gateway="eth0/10.0.0.5"
576
577 Old configuration variables in /etc/conf.d/net are fully supported and
578 used transparently if ifconfig_eth0 is missing. In other words, this new
579 script is fully backward-compatible. However you can get rid of
580 iface_eth0, alias_eth0, broadcast_eth0 and netmask_eth0 if you want by
581 using the new syntax:
582
583 ifconfig_eth0=(
584 "10.0.0.6 broadcast 10.0.255.255 netmask 255.255.0.0"
585 "192.168.1.1 netmask 255.255.255.0"
586 "123.456.789.1"
587 )
588
589 Full backward compatibility so no danger to screwing up users relying on
590 existing /etc/conf.d/net setup
591
592 NET_DEBUG can be set in the environment for copious debugging output
593
594 Deprecate [ ] in favor of [[ ]] which has fewer quoting issues and
595 better functionality (and is even slightly faster)
596
597 Properly localize all variables, including variables returned by
598 setup_vars
599
600 Allow full options for every ifconfig command, both base address and
601 aliases via ifconfig_eth0, replacing the convoluted and less-functional
602 iface_eth0, alias_eth0, broadcast_eth0, netmask_eth0
603
604 Provide full support for static routes via routes_eth0
605
606 Fix potential quoting problems in setup_vars by using better eval syntax
607 instead of eval echo
608
609 Display IP addresses while configuring, both DHCP-retrieved and
610 statically set addresses
611
612 Collapse redundant caching of $? since eend returns $? again
613
614 Report when keeping kernel configuration for an interface along with IP
615 address gleaned
616
617 Don't reset the default gateway if it is already set correctly
618
619 Don't bind default gateway to particular interface when /sbin/route is
620 called so that it can survive if there is more than one interface on the
621 required subnet. (Old behavior can be obtained by setting
622 routes_eth0="default gw 1.2.3.4 dev eth0" if you really want it)
623
624 Don't bomb if default gateway can't be set since that doesn't
625 necessarily mean that the interface configuration is invalid.
626 (Old behavior was completely broken, but commented section
627 demonstrates how to do it right if necessary)
628
629 iface_stop no longer relies on configuration in /etc/conf.d/net AT ALL.
630 This is very good because it means you can put new configuration in
631 /etc/conf.d/net, then restart the interface and the old configuration will
632 be properly shut down.
633
634 iface_stop reports when it is releasing the DHCP lease
635

642 Add RC_DEVICE_TARBALL to /etc/conf.d/rc to control use of device tarball.
643 Also modified /sbin/rc and /etc/init.d/halt.sh for this.
644
645 Start udevd if present.
646
647 Small fix to sbin/rc-services.sh related to mtime checking and 'net'
648 virtual service - it had no mtime generated, so check_mtime() failed
649 for it ...
