4 08 Dec 2004; Roy Marples <uberlord@gentoo.org>:
5
6 iwconfig now unsets wireless config and downs interface when backgrounding
7 fails
8 wpa_supplicant now supports backgrounding
9
10
11 07 Dec 2004; Roy Marples <uberlord@gentoo.org>:
12
13 essidnet - fixed setting up search domains
14 ifconfig now reads the old gateway variable correctly - fixes #73641
15 iwconfig now supports backgrounding
16 ifconfig and iproute2 now support function interface_set_mac_address
17 macchanger no longer depends on macchanger if configuring a specific
18 mac address
19
20 fix depstop for net-services when system is booting - should fix #61594
21 added service_stopped function to make reading code easier and trying
22 to avoid race conditions
23
24 06 Dec 2004; Roy Marples <uberlord@gentoo.org>:
25
26 macchanger defaults to setting the interface down, and then trying
27 with it up - fixes #71929
28 macchanger converts mac_${IFACE} to lowercase - fixes #73549
29 iproute2 now configures the interface up everytime we add an address
30 removed "need interface" from all modules depends as net.lo requires
31 interface anyway
32 removed hardcoded ath0 in wpa_supplicant
33
34 added rc-script statuses "starting", "stopping" and "inactive"
35 dhcpcd, udhcpc and dhclient now support backgrounding - fixes #52975
36
37 05 Dec 2004; Roy Marples <uberlord@gentoo.org>:
38
39 dhclient now kill it's process if it failed to get a lease on startup
40 all dhclient responses are now handled correctly
41
42 04 Dec 2004; Roy Marples <uberlord@gentoo.org>:
43
44 fixed dhclient-ifconfig to look for dhclient-udhcpc-wrapper in the correct
45 place and changed hardcoded eth1 to ${interface} in udhcpc-ifconfig.
46 Fixes #73327 - thanks to Benoit Boissinot
47
48 essidnet gets the essid itself instead of relying on ${ESSID}
49 wpa_supplicant module added
50 config-system now creates files as .tmp instead of .new and loads
51 the wpa_supplicant module if needed
52 ifconfig now addes aliases to devices other than eth0
53 dhcpcd, dhclient, pump and udhcpc now expose the dhcp_${IFACE} variable
54 instead of the old peer_dns_${IFACE}, peer_ntp_${IFACE}, peer_nis_${IFACE}
55 ones
56
57 removed modules use dependancy in net.lo and added installed
58 - this allows use to provide "virtual" modules which are only "installed"
59 when other depended modules are installed
60
61* rc-scripts 1.6.7 (03 Dec 2004)
62
63 03 Dec 2004; Mike Frysinger <vapier@gentoo.org>:
64
65 Simply filesystem unmounting in halt.sh. Based upon work by Georg Sauthoff
66 #68697. Also clean up the filesystem remounting readonly. As a last
67 resort to filesystems which won't remount readonly, we try to unmount them
68 with the force/readonly options. Idea from #70349.
69
70 03 Dec 2004; Roy Marples <uberlord@gentoo.org>:
71
72 Fixed config-system for only changing hostname when needed
73 udhcpc and dhclient now restore saved configs when stopping and work
74 with non-infinite leases
75 Moved generic dhcp options into a space seperated string
76 udhcpc now caches it's IP address and requests it the next time it starts
77 if the address is not released
78 udhcpc and dhclient no longer flush interfaces if we don't need too
79 ipppd module now looks for ipppd in /usr/sbin - fixes #73067
80
81 02 Dec 2004; Mike Frysinger <vapier@gentoo.org>:
82
83 Merge time checking function (is_older_than) to help simplify config
84 file update checking. Used for now in env-update.sh #71285. Function
85 written by Paul Pacheco #55329.
86
87 02 Dec 2004; Roy Marples <uberlord@gentoo.org>:
88
89 Added option dhcp_release to specify if we release the DHCP lease or not
90 defaults to no
91 Changed variables peer_* to dhcp_*
92 dhclient and udhcpc now specify a pidfile
93 Fixed iwconfig report if iwgetid does not support --channel
94
95 01 Dec 2004; Mike Frysinger <vapier@gentoo.org>:
96
97 Refix and clean up the netmount script to kill processes #64034.
98
99 01 Dec 2004; Roy Marples <uberlord@gentoo.org>:
100
101 Documentation fixes regarding iwconfig and linux-wlan-ng
102 Fixed bonding deps per bug #71419
103
104 30 Nov 2004; Mike Frysinger <vapier@gentoo.org>:
105
106 Fix the UML/coLinux check in init.d/clock #72937.
107
108 Allow the user to override the default mount options via /etc/fstab
109 for all the mounts. Added a 'is_in_fstab' function to see if the
110 user has defined the mount, and if not, fall back to the hardcoded
111 stuff from before. This also lets us get rid of $RC_DEVICE_FS #70044.
112
113 26 Nov 2004; Roy Marples <uberlord@gentoo.org>:
114
115 Fixed up address detection in apipa
116 net.lo now checks for duplicate static IPv4 addresses before assigning
117 iwconfig now supports preassociate and postassociate user hooks
118 net.example - changed $1 to ${IFACE} in examples
119 clarified lack of linux-wlan-ng support
120
121 24 Nov 2004; Mike Frysinger <vapier@gentoo.org>:
122
123 Allow users to specify charset option to dumpkeys when using unicode
124 in conf.d/keymaps #72225. Also move all the init.d/keymap specific
125 options out of rc.conf and into conf.d/keymaps and add some config
126 checks to init.d/keymaps like the clock/hostname init.d scripts.
127
128 Make sure /etc/rc.conf overrides conf.d files when starting up
129 critical services. Should help out with transition from rc.conf.
130
131 24 Nov 2004; Roy Marples <uberlord@gentoo.org>:
132
133 Ensure all net-scripts modules depend on interface_variable function
134 where applicable
135 Fixed adsl stopping - #68934. Thanks to Andreas Kauer
136
137 23 Nov 2004; Roy Marples <uberlord@gentoo.org>:
138
139 iproute2 does not need to create dummy interfaces for aliases
140 unlike ifconfig so we no longer do this
141 We now bring down all aliases and addresses properly
142 Split off some functions from net.lo into helpers.d/functions
143 so that our DHCP helper scripts can use them too :)
144 Deprecated interface specific setup in favour of a generic config
145 macchanger brings interface up now - fixes #71929
146 DHCP over VLAN now works - fixes #71860
147 Disabled modified function checking as it's far too expensive on CPU
148 and still isn't 100% reliable
149 When specifing a module that isn't emerged, you now get an error
150 telling you what to emerge
151 Removed -p option from the diff call used for function removal
152 Removed rp_filter setting - fixes first part of bug #71971
153 Added sysctl.conf settings relating to rp_filter to sysctl.conf
154 - fixes last part of bug #71971
155 Fixed pump exporing ntp servers
156 implemented MODULES_DIR so we can change directory we load from on the fly
157 fixed variables for vlans in most modules
158
159 19 Nov 2004; Aron Grffis <agriffis@gentoo.org>:
160
161 Remove crap "ll" and "d" aliases from skel .bashrc
162
163 19 Nov 2004; Roy Marples <uberlord@gentoo.org>:
164
165 tests for hostname (none) when sending hostname via dhcpcd, udhpc or pump
166 udhcpc now does correct signal handling so we can release leases and
167 terminate cleanly
168 Improved pump process detection
169 Rewrote udhcpc helper scripts around udhcpc and wrapped dhclient to udhcpc
170 scripts. This makes things much saner as udhcpc is much saner - also fixed
171 essidnet and ipv6 local link for them.
172 removed iproute2 udhcpc reliance on the "bc" command
173
174 17 Nov 2004; Roy Marples <uberlord@gentoo.org>:
175
176 Fixed invalid variable handling in bonding and vlan - bug #71419
177 apipa now brings the interface up before testing if address exists
178 Updated bonding documentation - bug #71419
179 Fixed iproute2 adding addresses for vlans - bug #71419
180 ifconfig handle inet6 routing automatically - bug #33310
181 ifconfig - fixed old gateway + gateway in routes conflict
182 iproute2 cleaned up some functions
183
184 16 Nov 2004; Roy Marples <uberlord@gentoo.org>:
185
186 We no longer default a fallback to APIPA when no config is given
187 net.example fleshed out a bit more for dhcpcd - fixes #60845
188 Improved forced module handling a touch
189 modules_sort and modules_check_user in net.lo buffer _provides,
190 _before and _after in arrays to avoid shelling out
191
192 15 Nov 2004; Mike Frysinger <vapier@gentoo.org>:
193
194 Add a check to clock init.d to make sure users dont try to set
195 config their clock in rc.conf anymore.
196
197 Redo hostname/domainname scripts to use files in /etc/conf.d/
198 instead of creating files in /etc/. Allows for controlling things
199 like the behavior of setting the 'domain' in resolv.conf since users
200 may not always understand exactly what's going on.
201
202 Stop referring to conf.d/basic as a global rc config option. That
203 file hasn't been used in a long time and has since been replaced
204 with env.d/00basic. Updated sbin/runscript.sh, etc/profile,
205 sbin/rc-help.sh, and src/awk/cachedepends.awk.
206
207 Run `find | xargs` instead of `find -exec`. Much better performance
208 this way, and busybox friendly #59732.
209
210 15 Nov 2004; Roy Marples <uberlord@gentoo.org>:
211
212 Split modules_load into smaller more managable functions in net.lo
213 Added modules_force option to net.lo with a big phat warning in
214 net.example about it potentially breaking networking
215 Added searchdomains_ESSID option to essidnet
216 Stopped the domain setting from putting the same entry in search
217 in config-system and essidnet
218 Removed second warning in net.lo when configuration not set
219 Documented APIPA module in net.example
220 Added kernel checking for vlan - fixes #70829
221 Added kernel checking for bonding, bridging and tuntap
222 Added iproute2 support to the APIPA module
223
224 13 Nov 2004; Mike Frysinger <vapier@gentoo.org>:
225
226 Update the svcdir mounting #69595. Instead of mounting in /mnt
227 and then bind mounting to $svcdir, we mount the ramdisk on $svcidr.
228
229 12 Nov 2004; Roy Marples <uberlord@gentoo.org>:
230
231 Added arping duplicate address detection to net.lo
232 Created Automatic Private IP Addressing (APIPA) module
233
234 Added dependancy checking to ipppd
235 Bonding is now started pre instead of post
236 Fixed iface variable in dhcp modules for vlans
237 Changed get_device to interface_device
238 Changed get_type to interface_type
239 Added vlan configuration options and documented them in net.example
240 Fixed bridge configuration handling
241 Removed _get_vlans from iproute2 and ifconfig as vlan now does it itself
242
243 11 Nov 2004; Roy Marples <uberlord@gentoo.org>:
244
245 Fixed category of rp-pppoe to net-dialup error when requesting ADSL
246 Improved inet6 address deletion and detection in iproute2
247 Improved gateway logic in ifconfig
248 Changed all wireless reporting functions to use iwgetid instead of
249 parsing iwconfig output except for essid
250
251* rc-scripts 1.6.6 (08 Nov 2004)
252
253 08 Nov 2004; Roy Marples <uberlord@gentoo.org>:
254
255 Added options to configure bridge
256 Added bridge configuration example to net.example
257 Added missing required function interface_exists to iptunnel check_depends
258
259 07 Nov 2004; Aron Griffis <agriffis@gentoo.org>:
260
261 Fix shell scripting errors that would result in
262 /sbin/functions.sh: line 166: [: too many arguments.
