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

483 Fix bug 50246: Give root an invalid password ("*" in /etc/shadow)
484 in the default baselayout. This prevents the first reboot after
485 installation from having a blank password.

488
489 Fix bug 48595: Make sure $(id -u) is zero (root user) when running
490 init scripts to avoid a lot of error messages.
491
492 Replace many lines of awk with two lines of grep in
493 init.d/localmount
494
495 Fix bug 44316: Use 0644 instead of 0640 for resolv.conf in net.ppp0

499 Update to version 1.10.20 of Debian's start-stop-daemon (contained
500 in dpkg at http://packages.debian.org/testing/base/dpkg). This
501 fixes bug 22686 (start-stop-daemon in baselayout doesn't allow
502 altered nicelevel).
503
504* rc-scripts 1.4.10 (25 Apr 2004)
505
506 25 Apr 2004; Aron Griffis <agriffis@gentoo.org>:
507
508 Fix typos in sbin/rc: "try try mount" and "mount ... & >/dev/null"
509 Also removed the errstr double-checking since the need for that is
510 alleviated by these typo fixes.

513
514 Fix bug 48629 (/sbin/rc fixups for udev) with patch from GregKH
515
516 Fix bug 40987 (gentoo should be able to boot with an empty /dev)
517 with patch from Spanky. The patch avoids redirection to /dev/null
518 when it doesn't exist; this was breaking /sbin/rc.

550 08 Apr 2004; Aron Griffis <agriffis@gentoo.org>:
551
552 Patch init.d/checkroot to list / (root) only once in mtab; see bug 38360.
553 Patch from Gustavoz to livecd-functions.sh to run bash instead of login on
554 serial consoles, necessary due to scrambled root passwords.
555
556* rc-scripts 1.4.4 (07 Apr 2004)
557
558 07 Apr 2004; Aron Griffis <agriffis@gentoo.org>:

565 The changes in this commit pertain primarily to
566 http://bugs.gentoo.org/show_bug.cgi?id=19695
567 http://bugs.gentoo.org/show_bug.cgi?id=35736
568
569 Specify routes as an array per interface, for example:
570 routes_eth0=(
571 "-net 10.1.0.0 netmask 255.255.0.0 gw 10.0.0.5"
572 "-net 10.2.0.0 netmask 255.255.0.0 gw 10.0.0.6"
573 "-host 10.3.0.1 dev eth0"
574 )
575
576 You can optionally use the gateway variable or just put the default route
577 in the routes variable. The following two are REDUNDANT:
578
579 routes_eth0=( "default gw 10.0.0.5" )
580 gateway="eth0/10.0.0.5"
581
582 Old configuration variables in /etc/conf.d/net are fully supported and
583 used transparently if ifconfig_eth0 is missing. In other words, this new
584 script is fully backward-compatible. However you can get rid of
585 iface_eth0, alias_eth0, broadcast_eth0 and netmask_eth0 if you want by
586 using the new syntax:
587
588 ifconfig_eth0=(
589 "10.0.0.6 broadcast 10.0.255.255 netmask 255.255.0.0"
590 "192.168.1.1 netmask 255.255.255.0"
591 "123.456.789.1"
592 )
593
594 Full backward compatibility so no danger to screwing up users relying on
595 existing /etc/conf.d/net setup
596
597 NET_DEBUG can be set in the environment for copious debugging output
598
599 Deprecate [ ] in favor of [[ ]] which has fewer quoting issues and
600 better functionality (and is even slightly faster)
601
602 Properly localize all variables, including variables returned by
603 setup_vars
604
605 Allow full options for every ifconfig command, both base address and
606 aliases via ifconfig_eth0, replacing the convoluted and less-functional
607 iface_eth0, alias_eth0, broadcast_eth0, netmask_eth0
608
609 Provide full support for static routes via routes_eth0
610
611 Fix potential quoting problems in setup_vars by using better eval syntax
612 instead of eval echo
613
614 Display IP addresses while configuring, both DHCP-retrieved and
615 statically set addresses
616
617 Collapse redundant caching of $? since eend returns $? again
618
619 Report when keeping kernel configuration for an interface along with IP
620 address gleaned
621
622 Don't reset the default gateway if it is already set correctly
623
624 Don't bind default gateway to particular interface when /sbin/route is
625 called so that it can survive if there is more than one interface on the
626 required subnet. (Old behavior can be obtained by setting
627 routes_eth0="default gw 1.2.3.4 dev eth0" if you really want it)
628
629 Don't bomb if default gateway can't be set since that doesn't
630 necessarily mean that the interface configuration is invalid.
631 (Old behavior was completely broken, but commented section
632 demonstrates how to do it right if necessary)
633
634 iface_stop no longer relies on configuration in /etc/conf.d/net AT ALL.
635 This is very good because it means you can put new configuration in
636 /etc/conf.d/net, then restart the interface and the old configuration will
637 be properly shut down.
638
639 iface_stop reports when it is releasing the DHCP lease
640

648 Also modified /sbin/rc and /etc/init.d/halt.sh for this.
649
650 Start udevd if present.
651
652 Small fix to sbin/rc-services.sh related to mtime checking and 'net'
653 virtual service - it had no mtime generated, so check_mtime() failed
654 for it ...
