4 17 Nov 2004; Roy Marples <uberlord@gentoo.org>:
5 Fixed invalid variable handling in bonding and vlan - bug #71419
6 apipa now brings the interface up before testing if address exists
7 Updated bonding documentation - bug #71419
8 Fixed iproute2 adding addresses for vlans - bug #71419
9 ifconfig handle inet6 routing automatically - bug #33310
10 ifconfig - fixed old gateway + gateway in routes conflict
11 iproute2 cleaned up some functions
12
13 16 Nov 2004; Roy Marples <uberlord@gentoo.org>:
14
15 We no longer default a fallback to APIPA when no config is given
16 net.example fleshed out a bit more for dhcpcd - fixes #60845
17 Improved forced module handling a touch
18 modules_sort and modules_check_user in net.lo buffer _provides,
19 _before and _after in arrays to avoid shelling out
20
21 15 Nov 2004; Mike Frysinger <vapier@gentoo.org>:
22
23 Add a check to clock init.d to make sure users dont try to set
24 config their clock in rc.conf anymore.
25
26 Redo hostname/domainname scripts to use files in /etc/conf.d/
27 instead of creating files in /etc/. Allows for controlling things
28 like the behavior of setting the 'domain' in resolv.conf since users
29 may not always understand exactly what's going on.
30
31 Stop referring to conf.d/basic as a global rc config option. That
32 file hasn't been used in a long time and has since been replaced
33 with env.d/00basic. Updated sbin/runscript.sh, etc/profile,
34 sbin/rc-help.sh, and src/awk/cachedepends.awk.
35
36 Run `find | xargs` instead of `find -exec`. Much better performance
37 this way, and busybox friendly #59732.
38
39 15 Nov 2004; Roy Marples <uberlord@gentoo.org>:
40
41 Split modules_load into smaller more managable functions in net.lo
42 Added modules_force option to net.lo with a big phat warning in
43 net.example about it potentially breaking networking
44 Added searchdomains_ESSID option to essidnet
45 Stopped the domain setting from putting the same entry in search
46 in config-system and essidnet
47 Removed second warning in net.lo when configuration not set
48 Documented APIPA module in net.example
49 Added kernel checking for vlan - fixes #70829
50 Added kernel checking for bonding, bridging and tuntap
51 Added iproute2 support to the APIPA module
52
53 13 Nov 2004; Mike Frysinger <vapier@gentoo.org>:
54
55 Update the svcdir mounting #69595. Instead of mounting in /mnt
56 and then bind mounting to $svcdir, we mount the ramdisk on $svcidr.
57
58 12 Nov 2004; Roy Marples <uberlord@gentoo.org>:
59
60 Added arping duplicate address detection to net.lo
61 Created Automatic Private IP Addressing (APIPA) module
62
63 Added dependancy checking to ipppd
64 Bonding is now started pre instead of post
65 Fixed iface variable in dhcp modules for vlans
66 Changed get_device to interface_device
67 Changed get_type to interface_type
68 Added vlan configuration options and documented them in net.example
69 Fixed bridge configuration handling
70 Removed _get_vlans from iproute2 and ifconfig as vlan now does it itself
71
72 11 Nov 2004; Roy Marples <uberlord@gentoo.org>:
73
74 Fixed category of rp-pppoe to net-dialup error when requesting ADSL
75 Improved inet6 address deletion and detection in iproute2
76 Improved gateway logic in ifconfig
77 Changed all wireless reporting functions to use iwgetid instead of
78 parsing iwconfig output except for essid
79
80* rc-scripts 1.6.6 (08 Nov 2004)
81
82 08 Nov 2004; Roy Marples <uberlord@gentoo.org>:
83
84 Added options to configure bridge
85 Added bridge configuration example to net.example
86 Added missing required function interface_exists to iptunnel check_depends
87
88 07 Nov 2004; Aron Griffis <agriffis@gentoo.org>:
89
90 Fix shell scripting errors that would result in
91 /sbin/functions.sh: line 166: [: too many arguments.
92
93 05 Nov 2004; Roy Marples <uberlord@gentoo.org>:
94
95 net-scripts/net.modules.d/bridge
96 - fixed destroying a bridge if no ports were added
97 - starts interfaces if they don't exist - fixed bug #65153
98
99 net-scrips/net.modules.d/bonding
100 - starts interfaces if they don't exist
101
102 net-scripts/init.d/net.lo
103 - added net_start() function to start depandant ifaces
104 so that bridge br0 can active tun0 which net.tun0 has to create
105 - added use dependany on wlan incase we're using linux-wlan-ng drivers
106 fixes bug #64978
107 - moved start() to run_start() and stop() to run_stop()
108 created run() and new start()/stop() functions
109 this is so that we have one single entry point to localise variables
110 and to remove any added functions loaded by our modules
111 - removed redundant interface_exists() as it's provided by
112 ifconfig and/or iproute2
113
114 net-scripts/net.modules.d/ifconfig and iproute2
115 - added ifconfig_tunnel and iproute2_tunnel functions
116
117 addred gre/ipip tunnel support via the the tunnel module
118 - fixes bug #50765
119
120 04 Nov 2004; Roy Marples <uberlord@gentoo.org>:
121
122 net-scripts/net.modules.d/pump
123 - fixed setting ntp servers
124
125 net-scripts/net.modules.d/dhcpcd
126 - fixed stopping function
127
128 net-scripts/net.modules.d/bonding
129 - fixed module to actually work with the interface
130
131 net-scripts/init.d/net.lo
132 - we remove all added functions when restarting an interface
133 this relies on the diff command being available
134
135 added isdn support via the new ipppd module - fixes bug #69035
136
137 net-scripts/conf.d/net.example
138 - added sample isdn setup
139
140 net-scripts/conf.d/wireless.example
141 - added better descriptions to the _sleep variables
142
143 Fixed boolean logic error when testing is_net_up in /sbin/runscript.sh
144 - fixed bug #70022
145
146 net.lo - added get_type function to return the type of the interface
147 - eth, ippp, etc
148
149 ipppd, tuntap
150 - start() moved to pre_start() and we now test by type
151 this means you no longer need ifconfig_ippp0=( "isdn" "dhcp" )
152 as ippp0 is always an isdn device
153
154 bridge - fixed stop function and moved start() to pre_start()
155 and automatically start if the variable bridge_${iface} exists
156
157 net.example - fixed up documentation for changed behaviour above
158
159 03 Nov 2004; Mike Frysinger <vapier@gentoo.org>:
160
161 When launching critical services in /sbin/rc, make sure we source
162 the conf.d file (if it exists). Resolves #69956.
163
164 03 Nov 2004; Roy Marples <uberlord@gentoo.org>:
165
166 net-scripts/init.d/net.lo
167 - fixed !module when it's not installed
168 - we can now specify null inet addresses in the config
169 this allows a pure inet6 setup
170 - shutdown lo the same way we bring it up
171
172 net-scripts/net.modules.d/ifconfig
173 - changed IPv6 to inet6 in output of adding inet6 addresses
174 - just output inet6 address removed, not eth0 del foo
175
176 net-scripts/net.modules.d/iproute2
177 - fix deletion of non-link addresses - fixes bug #65417 (again)
178 - handle inet6 addresses like ifconfig - fixes more bug #65417
179
180 net-scripts/conf.d/net.example
181 - noted that inet6 addresses do not create aliases
182 - added examples of assigning inet6 addresses
183
184 net-scripts/net.modules.d/iwconfig
185 - improve error message when card does not support scanning
186
187 net-scripts/conf.d/wireless.example
188 - fixed comment regarding preferred_aps not working with cards that don't
189 support scanning
190
191 02 Nov 2004; Roy Marples <uberlord@gentoo.org>:
192
193 net-scripts/conf.d/net.example
194 - added bridging and tuntap examples
195
196 net-scripts/init.d/net.lo
197 - modprobe ${IFACE} when ${IFACE} does not exist
198
199 net-scripts/net.modules.d/ifconfig
200 - fixed interface existance check
201
202 net-scripts/net.modules.d
203 ifconfig & iproute2
204 - added boolean to interface_exists to report if it exists or not
205 - added checks to see if the interface exists or not when starting
206
207 dhcpcd
208 - removed debug line
209
210 bonding, dhclient, dhcpcd, essidnet, macchanger, pump, udhcpc
211 - added checks to see if the interface exists or not when starting
212
213 tuntap
214 - added checks to see if the interface exists or not when stopping
215
216 01 Nov 2004; Mike Frysinger <vapier@gentoo.org>:
217
218 Dump the error message that hwclock returns since it tends to be
219 quite useful. Modified init.d/clock.
220
221 Fix error in functions.sh [ -z "$@" ] -> [[ -z "$@" ]] #69789.
222
223 Don't create /dev/sndstat link anymore in populate_udev per #69635.
224
225 01 Nov 2004; Roy Marples <uberlord@gentoo.org>:
226
227 net-scripts/init.d/net.lo:
228 - modules specified by interface config now error if they are not loaded
229 - moved interface check to after preup incase user preup loads drivers
230 - modules can be explicitly not used by prefixing them with a !
231 however, they are still available to other modules
232 fixes bugs #68908, #69027
233 - remove check to see if interface exists
234 - modules may setup new interfaces and still require config
235 so we have a new label counter in iface_start
236 - removed the check to see if a class wrapping already exists
237 this fixes the bug where ifconfig and iproute2 are installed, but
238 ifconfig is asked for and the interface is restarted.
239 - added check to see if the configured module is loaded
240 and installed or not in iface_start
241 - add dependancy on isdn4linux - fixes bug #69035
242 - interface_exists moved to iproute and ifconfig
243
244 net-scripts/net.modules.d
245 - Split wireless module into iwconfig and essidnet modules
246 - Added tuntap and bridge modules, fixes bug #55394, #30688
247
248 net-scripts/init.d/iwconfig:
249 - wep mode is now reported
250 - removed post_stop function so we keep existing config
251 - added pre_stop to set the ESSID variable
252 - changed to veinfo/vewarn where appropriate
253 - check if interface exists otherwise abort gracefully
254 - no longer deletes addresses as we now avoid
255 ipv6 local addresses in detecting if interface has an addresses or not
256
257 net-scripts/init.d/ifconfig:
258 - added flag enable/disable function
259 - scope:link inet6 addresses are ignored when testing is_up and
260 del_addresses - fixes bug #65417
261
262 net-scripts/init.d/iproute2:
263 - added flag enable/disable function
264 - scope:link inet6 addresses are ignored when testing is_up and
265 del_addresses - fixes bug #65417
266
267 net-scripts/init.d/macchanger:
268 - fixed detecting whether the change worked or not, fixes bug #68893
269
270 net-scripts/init.d/vlan:
271 - fixed old config problem
272
273 31 Oct 2004; Martin Schlemmer <azarah@gentoo.org>:
274
275 Do not delete depscan and envupdate caches on reboot, as this should
276 improve bootup times - works nicely with the '-u' parameters of both.
277 Also move the '-u' parameter test of depscan.sh after the directory
278 exist test, else ${svcdir}/started/, etc do not exist. Modified both
279 /sbin/rc and /sbin/depscan.sh for this.
280
281 Move things around in /sbin/functions.sh to have all functions above.
282
283 Add the 'lo' option to RC_NET_STRICT_CHECKING to resolve bug #29225.
284
285 28 Oct 2004; Martin Schlemmer <azarah@gentoo.org>:
286
287 Only add files not managed by udev to device tarball, bug #57110.
288
289 28 Oct 2004; Mike Frysinger <vapier@gentoo.org>:
290
291 Revert pam_console_apply udev check in bootmisc/halt.sh since
292 the bug is with pam_console_apply and not udev/pam.
293
294 Use ${EUID} instead of $(id -u) to help out BSD in runscript.sh.
295
296 Allow users to select ramfs instead of default tmpfs for mounting
297 on /dev with udev #69091.
298
299 Add issue.devfix which would be auto copied to /etc/issue if
300 /sbin/rc detects the user is missing /dev/null or /dev/console.
301 Includes a simple explanation/fix for what's wrong.
302
303 Make sure the clock init script runs after checkroot/modules/localmount
304 so that timestamps are synchronized asap #68133 / #70008.
305
306 Accept '-nc' as a short option to '--nocolor' #64736.
307
308 26 Oct 2004; Mike Frysinger <vapier@gentoo.org>:
309
310 Don't use -A with fsck to respect the fs_passno since it'll try
311 to fsck all filesystems, not just the ones specified. Instead,
312 awk /etc/fstab to review the passno field in checkroot #68822.
313
314 Add support for 'gentoo=forcefsck' boot option in checkroot.
315
316 Make sure we run devfsd in /sbin/rc even when /dev has been
317 automounted by the kernel #68795.
318
319 Don't generate the device tarball in halt.sh with livecds #68469.
320
321 25 Oct 2004; Aron Griffis <agriffis@gentoo.org>:
322
323 net-scripts/net.modules.d/ifconfig:
324 - Simplify ifconfig_is_up()
325 - Fix ifconfig_get_aliases_rev() to actually work... you can't
326 specify an interface name to ifconfig if you want to see the
327 aliases.
328 - Workaround a couple ifconfig bugs dealing with aliases
329 - Correct a return status in ifconfig_interface_del_addresses()
330 - ifconfig_iface_stop() is bool, not void; fix the comments
331
332 net-scripts/net.modules.d/iproute2:
333 - iproute2_iface_stop() is bool, not void. Fix the code so it
334 returns meaningful values
335
336 net-scripts/init.d/net.lo:
337 - Fix preferred (ifconfig/dhcpcd) module loading so it doesn't
338 barf when a preferred module is either (1) missing from
339 net.modules.d or (2) not available due to missing dependencies
340 - When loading all modules in order to stop an interface, only use
341 the first available to satisfy each class wrapper
342
343 24 Oct 2004; Aron Griffis <agriffis@gentoo.org>:
344
345 Include livecd patch that was applied to baselayout-1.9.4-r6
346 to use agetty instead of mingetty
347
348 24 Oct 2004; Mike Frysinger <vapier@gentoo.org>:
349
350 Mount tmpfs instead of ramfs on /dev when using udev systems.
351 The problem with ramfs is that it has no size limitations so
352 one could easily take down their machine by accident #68653.
353
354* rc-scripts 1.6.3 (23 Oct 2004)
355
356 22 Oct 2004; Aron Griffis <agriffis@gentoo.org>:
357
358 Add support for user_eth0 in the adsl module and in net.example.
359 This means that most users won't need to edit pppoe.conf at all
360
361 21 Oct 2004; Aron Griffis <agriffis@gentoo.org>:
362
363 Remove old etc/conf.d/net and try to clarify instructions in
364 net-scripts/conf.d/net.example. Add example for ADSL
365
366 21 Oct 2004; Mike Frysinger <vapier@gentoo.org>:
367
368 Merge all of the UML checks into one function, is_uml_sys(),
369 which is now in functions.sh.
370
371 18 Oct 2004; Aron Griffis <agriffis@gentoo.org>:
372
373 Add v-e-commands (veinfo, vbegin, etc) to sbin/functions.sh that
374 depend on RC_VERBOSE which defaults to no. Add --verbose to args
375 understood by runscript.sh.
376
377 In net.lo, use veinfo and friends when loading modules since this
378 information is confusing to users.
379
380 In net.lo, always load global "modules" setting in following
381 "modules_iface" since this is a little easier for users to
382 understand.
383
384 In net.lo, use eindent for output of pre/post scripts
385
386 18 Oct 2004; Mike Frysinger <vapier@gentoo.org>:
387
388 Add shfs to our list of net filesystems #61452. Also add afs/nfs4.
389
390 Add a '-u' parameter to depscan.sh to allow for updates only when
391 the config files have changed. With /sbin/rc using this, we speed
392 up bootup by only regenerating the cache when need be #67976. Also
393 add a '-u' parameter to env-update.sh for same reasons.
394
395 Don't run depscan.sh in rc-update anymore since the cache files don't
396 depend on runlevels (which is all that rc-update modifies).
397
398 Add unicode support to keymaps/consolefont #32111 and UML support #29707.
399
400 Add checks to many filesystem operations in the eventuality that the
401 filesystems are mounted read only.
402
403 16 Oct 2004; Mike Frysinger <vapier@gentoo.org>:
404
405 Update the default fstab /dev/shm mount to include the nodev, nosuid,
406 and noexec mount flags. No reason for the filesystem to have those.
407
408 Cleaned up the clock init script. Moved the clock options out of
409 rc.conf and into its own conf.d/clock file. Added support for the
410 weird Alpha consoles SRM/ARC since they need special config options.
411 Also made the syncing of system clock to hardware clock at shutdown
412 optional (with the default being off) #15834. Don't try to set the
413 clock if running inside a coLinux environment #52870.
414
415 Update default PATH ordering to try to follow default behavior in
416 other distro's and because it's logical that /usr/local should
417 override /usr which should override /. Fixes #12531.
418
419 Move devfs stuff out of baselayout and into the devfsd package.
420
421 Don't run /sbin/pam_console_apply -r if using udev on /dev #50315.
422
423 14 Oct 2004; Aron Griffis <agriffis@gentoo.org>:
424
425 Fix rc-status to work with new COLS code.
426
427 14 Oct 2004; Mike Frysinger <vapier@gentoo.org>:
428
429 Allow users to mount ramfs/tmpfs/ramdisk as their svcdir and
430 stop assuming ramfs==ramdisk #64079.
431
432 13 Oct 2004; Mike Frysinger <vapier@gentoo.org>:
433
434 Rework the code for managing /dev to make it more flexible for
435 users. Some don't want to use devfs/udev but rather just create
436 their own nodes. Handles some issues with #44906 / #67276.
437
438 Move the utmp clearing code out of bootmisc and into /sbin/rc.
439 The utmp log must be cleared while in the initial boot level
440 (meaning inside /sbin/rc) because as soon as rc exists, init
441 writes a 'boot' record (`who -b`) which would normally be lost
442 when the bootmisc init.d script is run #61727.
443
444 13 Oct 2004; Aron Griffis <agriffis@gentoo.org>:
445
446 Cosmetic fixes for starting loopback interface
447
448 SpanKY doesn't like the dots... disable them by default, but you
449 can set RC_DOT_PATTERN=' .' in /etc/conf.d/rc to get them back
450
451* rc-scripts 1.6.2 (13 Oct 2004)
452
453 13 Oct 2004; Aron Griffis <agriffis@gentoo.org>:
454
455 Install net.modules.d to /lib/rcscripts instead of /etc so we
456 don't have to deal with CONFIG_PROTECT
457
458 Fix diff code in modules_load so it can identify which functions
459 have been modified
460
461 Fix fallback mechanism in iface_start so that it works correctly
462 and doesn't report a bogus error message when trying the fallback
463
464 Get rid of need_begin trickery in iface_stop
465
466 Simplify eend processing in dhcp modules
467
468 Implement eindent, eoutdent, esetdent in functions.sh and adjust
469 net-scripts to use them.
470
471 Re-write einfo, ewarn, eerror, ebegin, eend, ewend to use
472 RC_INDENTATION and to work better on serial terminals
473
474 Remove conf.d/net.ppp0 since that is provided by net-dialup/ppp
4 475
5 12 Oct 2004; Aron Griffis <agriffis@gentoo.org>: 476 12 Oct 2004; Aron Griffis <agriffis@gentoo.org>:
6 477
7 Fix ipaddr_fallback in net-scripts/conf.d/net.example 478 Fix ipaddr_fallback in net-scripts/conf.d/net.example
8 479
108 Update the fs_passno values in the default fstab to match the 579 Update the fs_passno values in the default fstab to match the
109 settings suggested by the manpage #37314. Make checkroot respect 580 settings suggested by the manpage #37314. Make checkroot respect
110 a fs_passno setting of 0 when dealing with / #39212. Change 581 a fs_passno setting of 0 when dealing with / #39212. Change
111 default / filesystem type to ext3 instead of xfs #42670. 582 default / filesystem type to ext3 instead of xfs #42670.
112 583
113 Re-order the arguements to mount to match POSIX requirements #66225. 584 Re-order the arguments to mount to match POSIX requirements #66225.
114 585
115 Don't pipe swapon in localmount to /dev/null and ignore return 586 Don't pipe swapon in localmount to /dev/null and ignore return
116 codes anymore. A swapon that works shows no output #39834. 587 codes anymore. A swapon that works shows no output #39834.
117 588
