4 23 Nov 2004; Roy Marples <uberlord@gentoo.org>:
5
6 iproute2 does not need to create dummy interfaces for aliases
7 unlike ifconfig so we no longer do this
8 We now bring down all aliases and addresses properly
9 Split off some functions from net.lo into helpers.d/functions
10 so that our DHCP helper scripts can use them too :)
11 Deprecated interface specific setup in favour of a generic config
12 macchanger brings interface up now - fixes #71929
13 DHCP over VLAN now works - fixes #71860
14 Disabled modified function checking as it's far too expensive on CPU
15 and still isn't 100% reliable
16 When specifing a module that isn't emerged, you now get an error
17 telling you what to emerge
18 Removed -p option from the diff call used for function removal
19 Removed rp_filter setting - fixes first part of bug #71971
20 Added sysctl.conf settings relating to rp_filter to sysctl.conf
21 - fixes last part of bug #71971
22 Fixed pump exporing ntp servers
23 implemented MODULES_DIR so we can change directory we load from on the fly
24
25 19 Nov 2004; Aron Grffis <agriffis@gentoo.org>:
26
27 Remove crap "ll" and "d" aliases from skel .bashrc
28
29 19 Nov 2004; Roy Marples <uberlord@gentoo.org>:
30
31 tests for hostname (none) when sending hostname via dhcpcd, udhpc or pump
32 udhcpc now does correct signal handling so we can release leases and
33 terminate cleanly
34 Improved pump process detection
35 Rewrote udhcpc helper scripts around udhcpc and wrapped dhclient to udhcpc
36 scripts. This makes things much saner as udhcpc is much saner - also fixed
37 essidnet and ipv6 local link for them.
38 removed iproute2 udhcpc reliance on the "bc" command
39
40 17 Nov 2004; Roy Marples <uberlord@gentoo.org>:
41
42 Fixed invalid variable handling in bonding and vlan - bug #71419
43 apipa now brings the interface up before testing if address exists
44 Updated bonding documentation - bug #71419
45 Fixed iproute2 adding addresses for vlans - bug #71419
46 ifconfig handle inet6 routing automatically - bug #33310
47 ifconfig - fixed old gateway + gateway in routes conflict
48 iproute2 cleaned up some functions
49
50 16 Nov 2004; Roy Marples <uberlord@gentoo.org>:
51
52 We no longer default a fallback to APIPA when no config is given
53 net.example fleshed out a bit more for dhcpcd - fixes #60845
54 Improved forced module handling a touch
55 modules_sort and modules_check_user in net.lo buffer _provides,
56 _before and _after in arrays to avoid shelling out
57
58 15 Nov 2004; Mike Frysinger <vapier@gentoo.org>:
59
60 Add a check to clock init.d to make sure users dont try to set
61 config their clock in rc.conf anymore.
62
63 Redo hostname/domainname scripts to use files in /etc/conf.d/
64 instead of creating files in /etc/. Allows for controlling things
65 like the behavior of setting the 'domain' in resolv.conf since users
66 may not always understand exactly what's going on.
67
68 Stop referring to conf.d/basic as a global rc config option. That
69 file hasn't been used in a long time and has since been replaced
70 with env.d/00basic. Updated sbin/runscript.sh, etc/profile,
71 sbin/rc-help.sh, and src/awk/cachedepends.awk.
72
73 Run `find | xargs` instead of `find -exec`. Much better performance
74 this way, and busybox friendly #59732.
75
76 15 Nov 2004; Roy Marples <uberlord@gentoo.org>:
77
78 Split modules_load into smaller more managable functions in net.lo
79 Added modules_force option to net.lo with a big phat warning in
80 net.example about it potentially breaking networking
81 Added searchdomains_ESSID option to essidnet
82 Stopped the domain setting from putting the same entry in search
83 in config-system and essidnet
84 Removed second warning in net.lo when configuration not set
85 Documented APIPA module in net.example
86 Added kernel checking for vlan - fixes #70829
87 Added kernel checking for bonding, bridging and tuntap
88 Added iproute2 support to the APIPA module
89
90 13 Nov 2004; Mike Frysinger <vapier@gentoo.org>:
91
92 Update the svcdir mounting #69595. Instead of mounting in /mnt
93 and then bind mounting to $svcdir, we mount the ramdisk on $svcidr.
94
95 12 Nov 2004; Roy Marples <uberlord@gentoo.org>:
96
97 Added arping duplicate address detection to net.lo
98 Created Automatic Private IP Addressing (APIPA) module
99
100 Added dependancy checking to ipppd
101 Bonding is now started pre instead of post
102 Fixed iface variable in dhcp modules for vlans
103 Changed get_device to interface_device
104 Changed get_type to interface_type
105 Added vlan configuration options and documented them in net.example
106 Fixed bridge configuration handling
107 Removed _get_vlans from iproute2 and ifconfig as vlan now does it itself
108
109 11 Nov 2004; Roy Marples <uberlord@gentoo.org>:
110
111 Fixed category of rp-pppoe to net-dialup error when requesting ADSL
112 Improved inet6 address deletion and detection in iproute2
113 Improved gateway logic in ifconfig
114 Changed all wireless reporting functions to use iwgetid instead of
115 parsing iwconfig output except for essid
116
117* rc-scripts 1.6.6 (08 Nov 2004)
118
119 08 Nov 2004; Roy Marples <uberlord@gentoo.org>:
120
121 Added options to configure bridge
122 Added bridge configuration example to net.example
123 Added missing required function interface_exists to iptunnel check_depends
124
125 07 Nov 2004; Aron Griffis <agriffis@gentoo.org>:
126
127 Fix shell scripting errors that would result in
128 /sbin/functions.sh: line 166: [: too many arguments.
129
130 05 Nov 2004; Roy Marples <uberlord@gentoo.org>:
131
132 net-scripts/net.modules.d/bridge
133 - fixed destroying a bridge if no ports were added
134 - starts interfaces if they don't exist - fixed bug #65153
135
136 net-scrips/net.modules.d/bonding
137 - starts interfaces if they don't exist
138
139 net-scripts/init.d/net.lo
140 - added net_start() function to start depandant ifaces
141 so that bridge br0 can active tun0 which net.tun0 has to create
142 - added use dependany on wlan incase we're using linux-wlan-ng drivers
143 fixes bug #64978
144 - moved start() to run_start() and stop() to run_stop()
145 created run() and new start()/stop() functions
146 this is so that we have one single entry point to localise variables
147 and to remove any added functions loaded by our modules
148 - removed redundant interface_exists() as it's provided by
149 ifconfig and/or iproute2
150
151 net-scripts/net.modules.d/ifconfig and iproute2
152 - added ifconfig_tunnel and iproute2_tunnel functions
153
154 addred gre/ipip tunnel support via the the tunnel module
155 - fixes bug #50765
156
157 04 Nov 2004; Roy Marples <uberlord@gentoo.org>:
158
159 net-scripts/net.modules.d/pump
160 - fixed setting ntp servers
161
162 net-scripts/net.modules.d/dhcpcd
163 - fixed stopping function
164
165 net-scripts/net.modules.d/bonding
166 - fixed module to actually work with the interface
167
168 net-scripts/init.d/net.lo
169 - we remove all added functions when restarting an interface
170 this relies on the diff command being available
171
172 added isdn support via the new ipppd module - fixes bug #69035
173
174 net-scripts/conf.d/net.example
175 - added sample isdn setup
176
177 net-scripts/conf.d/wireless.example
178 - added better descriptions to the _sleep variables
179
180 Fixed boolean logic error when testing is_net_up in /sbin/runscript.sh
181 - fixed bug #70022
182
183 net.lo - added get_type function to return the type of the interface
184 - eth, ippp, etc
185
186 ipppd, tuntap
187 - start() moved to pre_start() and we now test by type
188 this means you no longer need ifconfig_ippp0=( "isdn" "dhcp" )
189 as ippp0 is always an isdn device
190
191 bridge - fixed stop function and moved start() to pre_start()
192 and automatically start if the variable bridge_${iface} exists
193
194 net.example - fixed up documentation for changed behaviour above
195
196 03 Nov 2004; Mike Frysinger <vapier@gentoo.org>:
197
198 When launching critical services in /sbin/rc, make sure we source
199 the conf.d file (if it exists). Resolves #69956.
200
201 03 Nov 2004; Roy Marples <uberlord@gentoo.org>:
202
203 net-scripts/init.d/net.lo
204 - fixed !module when it's not installed
205 - we can now specify null inet addresses in the config
206 this allows a pure inet6 setup
207 - shutdown lo the same way we bring it up
208
209 net-scripts/net.modules.d/ifconfig
210 - changed IPv6 to inet6 in output of adding inet6 addresses
211 - just output inet6 address removed, not eth0 del foo
212
213 net-scripts/net.modules.d/iproute2
214 - fix deletion of non-link addresses - fixes bug #65417 (again)
215 - handle inet6 addresses like ifconfig - fixes more bug #65417
216
217 net-scripts/conf.d/net.example
218 - noted that inet6 addresses do not create aliases
219 - added examples of assigning inet6 addresses
220
221 net-scripts/net.modules.d/iwconfig
222 - improve error message when card does not support scanning
223
224 net-scripts/conf.d/wireless.example
225 - fixed comment regarding preferred_aps not working with cards that don't
226 support scanning
227
228 02 Nov 2004; Roy Marples <uberlord@gentoo.org>:
229
230 net-scripts/conf.d/net.example
231 - added bridging and tuntap examples
232
233 net-scripts/init.d/net.lo
234 - modprobe ${IFACE} when ${IFACE} does not exist
235
236 net-scripts/net.modules.d/ifconfig
237 - fixed interface existance check
238
239 net-scripts/net.modules.d
240 ifconfig & iproute2
241 - added boolean to interface_exists to report if it exists or not
242 - added checks to see if the interface exists or not when starting
243
244 dhcpcd
245 - removed debug line
246
247 bonding, dhclient, dhcpcd, essidnet, macchanger, pump, udhcpc
248 - added checks to see if the interface exists or not when starting
249
250 tuntap
251 - added checks to see if the interface exists or not when stopping
252
253 01 Nov 2004; Mike Frysinger <vapier@gentoo.org>:
254
255 Dump the error message that hwclock returns since it tends to be
256 quite useful. Modified init.d/clock.
257
258 Fix error in functions.sh [ -z "$@" ] -> [[ -z "$@" ]] #69789.
259
260 Don't create /dev/sndstat link anymore in populate_udev per #69635.
261
262 01 Nov 2004; Roy Marples <uberlord@gentoo.org>:
263
264 net-scripts/init.d/net.lo:
265 - modules specified by interface config now error if they are not loaded
266 - moved interface check to after preup incase user preup loads drivers
267 - modules can be explicitly not used by prefixing them with a !
268 however, they are still available to other modules
269 fixes bugs #68908, #69027
270 - remove check to see if interface exists
271 - modules may setup new interfaces and still require config
272 so we have a new label counter in iface_start
273 - removed the check to see if a class wrapping already exists
274 this fixes the bug where ifconfig and iproute2 are installed, but
275 ifconfig is asked for and the interface is restarted.
276 - added check to see if the configured module is loaded
277 and installed or not in iface_start
278 - add dependancy on isdn4linux - fixes bug #69035
279 - interface_exists moved to iproute and ifconfig
280
281 net-scripts/net.modules.d
282 - Split wireless module into iwconfig and essidnet modules
283 - Added tuntap and bridge modules, fixes bug #55394, #30688
284
285 net-scripts/init.d/iwconfig:
286 - wep mode is now reported
287 - removed post_stop function so we keep existing config
288 - added pre_stop to set the ESSID variable
289 - changed to veinfo/vewarn where appropriate
290 - check if interface exists otherwise abort gracefully
291 - no longer deletes addresses as we now avoid
292 ipv6 local addresses in detecting if interface has an addresses or not
293
294 net-scripts/init.d/ifconfig:
295 - added flag enable/disable function
296 - scope:link inet6 addresses are ignored when testing is_up and
297 del_addresses - fixes bug #65417
298
299 net-scripts/init.d/iproute2:
300 - added flag enable/disable function
301 - scope:link inet6 addresses are ignored when testing is_up and
302 del_addresses - fixes bug #65417
303
304 net-scripts/init.d/macchanger:
305 - fixed detecting whether the change worked or not, fixes bug #68893
306
307 net-scripts/init.d/vlan:
308 - fixed old config problem
309
310 31 Oct 2004; Martin Schlemmer <azarah@gentoo.org>:
311
312 Do not delete depscan and envupdate caches on reboot, as this should
313 improve bootup times - works nicely with the '-u' parameters of both.
314 Also move the '-u' parameter test of depscan.sh after the directory
315 exist test, else ${svcdir}/started/, etc do not exist. Modified both
316 /sbin/rc and /sbin/depscan.sh for this.
317
318 Move things around in /sbin/functions.sh to have all functions above.
319
320 Add the 'lo' option to RC_NET_STRICT_CHECKING to resolve bug #29225.
321
322 28 Oct 2004; Martin Schlemmer <azarah@gentoo.org>:
323
324 Only add files not managed by udev to device tarball, bug #57110.
325
326 28 Oct 2004; Mike Frysinger <vapier@gentoo.org>:
327
328 Revert pam_console_apply udev check in bootmisc/halt.sh since
329 the bug is with pam_console_apply and not udev/pam.
330
331 Use ${EUID} instead of $(id -u) to help out BSD in runscript.sh.
332
333 Allow users to select ramfs instead of default tmpfs for mounting
334 on /dev with udev #69091.
335
336 Add issue.devfix which would be auto copied to /etc/issue if
337 /sbin/rc detects the user is missing /dev/null or /dev/console.
338 Includes a simple explanation/fix for what's wrong.
339
340 Make sure the clock init script runs after checkroot/modules/localmount
341 so that timestamps are synchronized asap #68133 / #70008.
342
343 Accept '-nc' as a short option to '--nocolor' #64736.
344
345 26 Oct 2004; Mike Frysinger <vapier@gentoo.org>:
346
347 Don't use -A with fsck to respect the fs_passno since it'll try
348 to fsck all filesystems, not just the ones specified. Instead,
349 awk /etc/fstab to review the passno field in checkroot #68822.
350
351 Add support for 'gentoo=forcefsck' boot option in checkroot.
352
353 Make sure we run devfsd in /sbin/rc even when /dev has been
354 automounted by the kernel #68795.
355
356 Don't generate the device tarball in halt.sh with livecds #68469.
357
358 25 Oct 2004; Aron Griffis <agriffis@gentoo.org>:
359
360 net-scripts/net.modules.d/ifconfig:
361 - Simplify ifconfig_is_up()
362 - Fix ifconfig_get_aliases_rev() to actually work... you can't
363 specify an interface name to ifconfig if you want to see the
364 aliases.
365 - Workaround a couple ifconfig bugs dealing with aliases
366 - Correct a return status in ifconfig_interface_del_addresses()
367 - ifconfig_iface_stop() is bool, not void; fix the comments
368
369 net-scripts/net.modules.d/iproute2:
370 - iproute2_iface_stop() is bool, not void. Fix the code so it
371 returns meaningful values
372
373 net-scripts/init.d/net.lo:
374 - Fix preferred (ifconfig/dhcpcd) module loading so it doesn't
375 barf when a preferred module is either (1) missing from
376 net.modules.d or (2) not available due to missing dependencies
377 - When loading all modules in order to stop an interface, only use
378 the first available to satisfy each class wrapper
379
380 24 Oct 2004; Aron Griffis <agriffis@gentoo.org>:
381
382 Include livecd patch that was applied to baselayout-1.9.4-r6
383 to use agetty instead of mingetty
384
385 24 Oct 2004; Mike Frysinger <vapier@gentoo.org>:
386
387 Mount tmpfs instead of ramfs on /dev when using udev systems.
388 The problem with ramfs is that it has no size limitations so
389 one could easily take down their machine by accident #68653.
390
391* rc-scripts 1.6.3 (23 Oct 2004)
392
393 22 Oct 2004; Aron Griffis <agriffis@gentoo.org>:
394
395 Add support for user_eth0 in the adsl module and in net.example.
396 This means that most users won't need to edit pppoe.conf at all
397
398 21 Oct 2004; Aron Griffis <agriffis@gentoo.org>:
399
400 Remove old etc/conf.d/net and try to clarify instructions in
401 net-scripts/conf.d/net.example. Add example for ADSL
402
403 21 Oct 2004; Mike Frysinger <vapier@gentoo.org>:
404
405 Merge all of the UML checks into one function, is_uml_sys(),
406 which is now in functions.sh.
407
408 18 Oct 2004; Aron Griffis <agriffis@gentoo.org>:
409
410 Add v-e-commands (veinfo, vbegin, etc) to sbin/functions.sh that
411 depend on RC_VERBOSE which defaults to no. Add --verbose to args
412 understood by runscript.sh.
413
414 In net.lo, use veinfo and friends when loading modules since this
415 information is confusing to users.
416
417 In net.lo, always load global "modules" setting in following
418 "modules_iface" since this is a little easier for users to
419 understand.
420
421 In net.lo, use eindent for output of pre/post scripts
422
423 18 Oct 2004; Mike Frysinger <vapier@gentoo.org>:
424
425 Add shfs to our list of net filesystems #61452. Also add afs/nfs4.
426
427 Add a '-u' parameter to depscan.sh to allow for updates only when
428 the config files have changed. With /sbin/rc using this, we speed
429 up bootup by only regenerating the cache when need be #67976. Also
430 add a '-u' parameter to env-update.sh for same reasons.
431
432 Don't run depscan.sh in rc-update anymore since the cache files don't
433 depend on runlevels (which is all that rc-update modifies).
434
435 Add unicode support to keymaps/consolefont #32111 and UML support #29707.
436
437 Add checks to many filesystem operations in the eventuality that the
438 filesystems are mounted read only.
439
440 16 Oct 2004; Mike Frysinger <vapier@gentoo.org>:
441
442 Update the default fstab /dev/shm mount to include the nodev, nosuid,
443 and noexec mount flags. No reason for the filesystem to have those.
444
445 Cleaned up the clock init script. Moved the clock options out of
446 rc.conf and into its own conf.d/clock file. Added support for the
447 weird Alpha consoles SRM/ARC since they need special config options.
448 Also made the syncing of system clock to hardware clock at shutdown
449 optional (with the default being off) #15834. Don't try to set the
450 clock if running inside a coLinux environment #52870.
451
452 Update default PATH ordering to try to follow default behavior in
453 other distro's and because it's logical that /usr/local should
454 override /usr which should override /. Fixes #12531.
455
456 Move devfs stuff out of baselayout and into the devfsd package.
457
458 Don't run /sbin/pam_console_apply -r if using udev on /dev #50315.
459
460 14 Oct 2004; Aron Griffis <agriffis@gentoo.org>:
461
462 Fix rc-status to work with new COLS code.
463
464 14 Oct 2004; Mike Frysinger <vapier@gentoo.org>:
465
466 Allow users to mount ramfs/tmpfs/ramdisk as their svcdir and
467 stop assuming ramfs==ramdisk #64079.
468
469 13 Oct 2004; Mike Frysinger <vapier@gentoo.org>:
470
471 Rework the code for managing /dev to make it more flexible for
472 users. Some don't want to use devfs/udev but rather just create
473 their own nodes. Handles some issues with #44906 / #67276.
474
475 Move the utmp clearing code out of bootmisc and into /sbin/rc.
476 The utmp log must be cleared while in the initial boot level
477 (meaning inside /sbin/rc) because as soon as rc exists, init
478 writes a 'boot' record (`who -b`) which would normally be lost
479 when the bootmisc init.d script is run #61727.
480
481 13 Oct 2004; Aron Griffis <agriffis@gentoo.org>:
482
483 Cosmetic fixes for starting loopback interface
484
485 SpanKY doesn't like the dots... disable them by default, but you
486 can set RC_DOT_PATTERN=' .' in /etc/conf.d/rc to get them back
487
488* rc-scripts 1.6.2 (13 Oct 2004)
489
490 13 Oct 2004; Aron Griffis <agriffis@gentoo.org>:
491
492 Install net.modules.d to /lib/rcscripts instead of /etc so we
493 don't have to deal with CONFIG_PROTECT
494
495 Fix diff code in modules_load so it can identify which functions
496 have been modified
497
498 Fix fallback mechanism in iface_start so that it works correctly
499 and doesn't report a bogus error message when trying the fallback
500
501 Get rid of need_begin trickery in iface_stop
502
503 Simplify eend processing in dhcp modules
504
505 Implement eindent, eoutdent, esetdent in functions.sh and adjust
506 net-scripts to use them.
