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 removed is_in_fstab function and replaced with get_mount_fstab which
10 returns a mount command based on the contents of fstab. Resolves bugs
11 #70044 and #73762
12
13 07 Dec 2004; Roy Marples <uberlord@gentoo.org>:
14
15 essidnet - fixed setting up search domains
16 ifconfig now reads the old gateway variable correctly - fixes #73641
17 iwconfig now supports backgrounding
18 ifconfig and iproute2 now support function interface_set_mac_address
19 macchanger no longer depends on macchanger if configuring a specific
20 mac address
21
22 fix depstop for net-services when system is booting - should fix #61594
23 added service_stopped function to make reading code easier and trying
24 to avoid race conditions
25
26 06 Dec 2004; Roy Marples <uberlord@gentoo.org>:
27
28 macchanger defaults to setting the interface down, and then trying
29 with it up - fixes #71929
30 macchanger converts mac_${IFACE} to lowercase - fixes #73549
31 iproute2 now configures the interface up everytime we add an address
32 removed "need interface" from all modules depends as net.lo requires
33 interface anyway
34 removed hardcoded ath0 in wpa_supplicant
35
36 added rc-script statuses "starting", "stopping" and "inactive"
37 dhcpcd, udhcpc and dhclient now support backgrounding - fixes #52975
38
39 05 Dec 2004; Roy Marples <uberlord@gentoo.org>:
40
41 dhclient now kill it's process if it failed to get a lease on startup
42 all dhclient responses are now handled correctly
43
44 04 Dec 2004; Roy Marples <uberlord@gentoo.org>:
45
46 fixed dhclient-ifconfig to look for dhclient-udhcpc-wrapper in the correct
47 place and changed hardcoded eth1 to ${interface} in udhcpc-ifconfig.
48 Fixes #73327 - thanks to Benoit Boissinot
49
50 essidnet gets the essid itself instead of relying on ${ESSID}
51 wpa_supplicant module added
52 config-system now creates files as .tmp instead of .new and loads
53 the wpa_supplicant module if needed
54 ifconfig now addes aliases to devices other than eth0
55 dhcpcd, dhclient, pump and udhcpc now expose the dhcp_${IFACE} variable
56 instead of the old peer_dns_${IFACE}, peer_ntp_${IFACE}, peer_nis_${IFACE}
57 ones
58
59 removed modules use dependancy in net.lo and added installed
60 - this allows use to provide "virtual" modules which are only "installed"
61 when other depended modules are installed
62
63* rc-scripts 1.6.7 (03 Dec 2004)
64
65 03 Dec 2004; Mike Frysinger <vapier@gentoo.org>:
66
67 Simply filesystem unmounting in halt.sh. Based upon work by Georg Sauthoff
68 #68697. Also clean up the filesystem remounting readonly. As a last
69 resort to filesystems which won't remount readonly, we try to unmount them
70 with the force/readonly options. Idea from #70349.
71
72 03 Dec 2004; Roy Marples <uberlord@gentoo.org>:
73
74 Fixed config-system for only changing hostname when needed
75 udhcpc and dhclient now restore saved configs when stopping and work
76 with non-infinite leases
77 Moved generic dhcp options into a space seperated string
78 udhcpc now caches it's IP address and requests it the next time it starts
79 if the address is not released
80 udhcpc and dhclient no longer flush interfaces if we don't need too
81 ipppd module now looks for ipppd in /usr/sbin - fixes #73067
82
83 02 Dec 2004; Mike Frysinger <vapier@gentoo.org>:
84
85 Merge time checking function (is_older_than) to help simplify config
86 file update checking. Used for now in env-update.sh #71285. Function
87 written by Paul Pacheco #55329.
88
89 02 Dec 2004; Roy Marples <uberlord@gentoo.org>:
90
91 Added option dhcp_release to specify if we release the DHCP lease or not
92 defaults to no
93 Changed variables peer_* to dhcp_*
94 dhclient and udhcpc now specify a pidfile
95 Fixed iwconfig report if iwgetid does not support --channel
96
97 01 Dec 2004; Mike Frysinger <vapier@gentoo.org>:
98
99 Refix and clean up the netmount script to kill processes #64034.
100
101 01 Dec 2004; Roy Marples <uberlord@gentoo.org>:
102
103 Documentation fixes regarding iwconfig and linux-wlan-ng
104 Fixed bonding deps per bug #71419
105
106 30 Nov 2004; Mike Frysinger <vapier@gentoo.org>:
107
108 Fix the UML/coLinux check in init.d/clock #72937.
109
110 Allow the user to override the default mount options via /etc/fstab
111 for all the mounts. Added a 'is_in_fstab' function to see if the
112 user has defined the mount, and if not, fall back to the hardcoded
113 stuff from before. This also lets us get rid of $RC_DEVICE_FS #70044.
114
115 26 Nov 2004; Roy Marples <uberlord@gentoo.org>:
116
117 Fixed up address detection in apipa
118 net.lo now checks for duplicate static IPv4 addresses before assigning
119 iwconfig now supports preassociate and postassociate user hooks
120 net.example - changed $1 to ${IFACE} in examples
121 clarified lack of linux-wlan-ng support
122
123 24 Nov 2004; Mike Frysinger <vapier@gentoo.org>:
124
125 Allow users to specify charset option to dumpkeys when using unicode
126 in conf.d/keymaps #72225. Also move all the init.d/keymap specific
127 options out of rc.conf and into conf.d/keymaps and add some config
128 checks to init.d/keymaps like the clock/hostname init.d scripts.
129
130 Make sure /etc/rc.conf overrides conf.d files when starting up
131 critical services. Should help out with transition from rc.conf.
132
133 24 Nov 2004; Roy Marples <uberlord@gentoo.org>:
134
135 Ensure all net-scripts modules depend on interface_variable function
136 where applicable
137 Fixed adsl stopping - #68934. Thanks to Andreas Kauer
138
139 23 Nov 2004; Roy Marples <uberlord@gentoo.org>:
140
141 iproute2 does not need to create dummy interfaces for aliases
142 unlike ifconfig so we no longer do this
143 We now bring down all aliases and addresses properly
144 Split off some functions from net.lo into helpers.d/functions
145 so that our DHCP helper scripts can use them too :)
146 Deprecated interface specific setup in favour of a generic config
147 macchanger brings interface up now - fixes #71929
148 DHCP over VLAN now works - fixes #71860
149 Disabled modified function checking as it's far too expensive on CPU
150 and still isn't 100% reliable
151 When specifing a module that isn't emerged, you now get an error
152 telling you what to emerge
153 Removed -p option from the diff call used for function removal
154 Removed rp_filter setting - fixes first part of bug #71971
155 Added sysctl.conf settings relating to rp_filter to sysctl.conf
156 - fixes last part of bug #71971
157 Fixed pump exporing ntp servers
158 implemented MODULES_DIR so we can change directory we load from on the fly
159 fixed variables for vlans in most modules
160
161 19 Nov 2004; Aron Grffis <agriffis@gentoo.org>:
162
163 Remove crap "ll" and "d" aliases from skel .bashrc
164
165 19 Nov 2004; Roy Marples <uberlord@gentoo.org>:
166
167 tests for hostname (none) when sending hostname via dhcpcd, udhpc or pump
168 udhcpc now does correct signal handling so we can release leases and
169 terminate cleanly
170 Improved pump process detection
171 Rewrote udhcpc helper scripts around udhcpc and wrapped dhclient to udhcpc
172 scripts. This makes things much saner as udhcpc is much saner - also fixed
173 essidnet and ipv6 local link for them.
174 removed iproute2 udhcpc reliance on the "bc" command
175
176 17 Nov 2004; Roy Marples <uberlord@gentoo.org>:
177
178 Fixed invalid variable handling in bonding and vlan - bug #71419
179 apipa now brings the interface up before testing if address exists
180 Updated bonding documentation - bug #71419
181 Fixed iproute2 adding addresses for vlans - bug #71419
182 ifconfig handle inet6 routing automatically - bug #33310
183 ifconfig - fixed old gateway + gateway in routes conflict
184 iproute2 cleaned up some functions
185
186 16 Nov 2004; Roy Marples <uberlord@gentoo.org>:
187
188 We no longer default a fallback to APIPA when no config is given
189 net.example fleshed out a bit more for dhcpcd - fixes #60845
190 Improved forced module handling a touch
191 modules_sort and modules_check_user in net.lo buffer _provides,
192 _before and _after in arrays to avoid shelling out
193
194 15 Nov 2004; Mike Frysinger <vapier@gentoo.org>:
195
196 Add a check to clock init.d to make sure users dont try to set
197 config their clock in rc.conf anymore.
198
199 Redo hostname/domainname scripts to use files in /etc/conf.d/
200 instead of creating files in /etc/. Allows for controlling things
201 like the behavior of setting the 'domain' in resolv.conf since users
202 may not always understand exactly what's going on.
203
204 Stop referring to conf.d/basic as a global rc config option. That
205 file hasn't been used in a long time and has since been replaced
206 with env.d/00basic. Updated sbin/runscript.sh, etc/profile,
207 sbin/rc-help.sh, and src/awk/cachedepends.awk.
208
209 Run `find | xargs` instead of `find -exec`. Much better performance
210 this way, and busybox friendly #59732.
211
212 15 Nov 2004; Roy Marples <uberlord@gentoo.org>:
213
214 Split modules_load into smaller more managable functions in net.lo
215 Added modules_force option to net.lo with a big phat warning in
216 net.example about it potentially breaking networking
217 Added searchdomains_ESSID option to essidnet
218 Stopped the domain setting from putting the same entry in search
219 in config-system and essidnet
220 Removed second warning in net.lo when configuration not set
221 Documented APIPA module in net.example
222 Added kernel checking for vlan - fixes #70829
223 Added kernel checking for bonding, bridging and tuntap
224 Added iproute2 support to the APIPA module
225
226 13 Nov 2004; Mike Frysinger <vapier@gentoo.org>:
227
228 Update the svcdir mounting #69595. Instead of mounting in /mnt
229 and then bind mounting to $svcdir, we mount the ramdisk on $svcidr.
230
231 12 Nov 2004; Roy Marples <uberlord@gentoo.org>:
232
233 Added arping duplicate address detection to net.lo
234 Created Automatic Private IP Addressing (APIPA) module
235
236 Added dependancy checking to ipppd
237 Bonding is now started pre instead of post
238 Fixed iface variable in dhcp modules for vlans
239 Changed get_device to interface_device
240 Changed get_type to interface_type
241 Added vlan configuration options and documented them in net.example
242 Fixed bridge configuration handling
243 Removed _get_vlans from iproute2 and ifconfig as vlan now does it itself
244
245 11 Nov 2004; Roy Marples <uberlord@gentoo.org>:
246
247 Fixed category of rp-pppoe to net-dialup error when requesting ADSL
248 Improved inet6 address deletion and detection in iproute2
249 Improved gateway logic in ifconfig
250 Changed all wireless reporting functions to use iwgetid instead of
251 parsing iwconfig output except for essid
252
253* rc-scripts 1.6.6 (08 Nov 2004)
254
255 08 Nov 2004; Roy Marples <uberlord@gentoo.org>:
256
257 Added options to configure bridge
258 Added bridge configuration example to net.example
259 Added missing required function interface_exists to iptunnel check_depends
260
261 07 Nov 2004; Aron Griffis <agriffis@gentoo.org>:
262
263 Fix shell scripting errors that would result in
264 /sbin/functions.sh: line 166: [: too many arguments.
265
266 05 Nov 2004; Roy Marples <uberlord@gentoo.org>:
267
268 net-scripts/net.modules.d/bridge
269 - fixed destroying a bridge if no ports were added
270 - starts interfaces if they don't exist - fixed bug #65153
271
272 net-scrips/net.modules.d/bonding
273 - starts interfaces if they don't exist
274
275 net-scripts/init.d/net.lo
276 - added net_start() function to start depandant ifaces
277 so that bridge br0 can active tun0 which net.tun0 has to create
278 - added use dependany on wlan incase we're using linux-wlan-ng drivers
279 fixes bug #64978
280 - moved start() to run_start() and stop() to run_stop()
281 created run() and new start()/stop() functions
282 this is so that we have one single entry point to localise variables
283 and to remove any added functions loaded by our modules
284 - removed redundant interface_exists() as it's provided by
285 ifconfig and/or iproute2
286
287 net-scripts/net.modules.d/ifconfig and iproute2
288 - added ifconfig_tunnel and iproute2_tunnel functions
289
290 addred gre/ipip tunnel support via the the tunnel module
291 - fixes bug #50765
292
293 04 Nov 2004; Roy Marples <uberlord@gentoo.org>:
294
295 net-scripts/net.modules.d/pump
296 - fixed setting ntp servers
297
298 net-scripts/net.modules.d/dhcpcd
299 - fixed stopping function
300
301 net-scripts/net.modules.d/bonding
302 - fixed module to actually work with the interface
303
304 net-scripts/init.d/net.lo
305 - we remove all added functions when restarting an interface
306 this relies on the diff command being available
307
308 added isdn support via the new ipppd module - fixes bug #69035
309
310 net-scripts/conf.d/net.example
311 - added sample isdn setup
312
313 net-scripts/conf.d/wireless.example
314 - added better descriptions to the _sleep variables
315
316 Fixed boolean logic error when testing is_net_up in /sbin/runscript.sh
317 - fixed bug #70022
318
319 net.lo - added get_type function to return the type of the interface
320 - eth, ippp, etc
321
322 ipppd, tuntap
323 - start() moved to pre_start() and we now test by type
324 this means you no longer need ifconfig_ippp0=( "isdn" "dhcp" )
325 as ippp0 is always an isdn device
326
327 bridge - fixed stop function and moved start() to pre_start()
328 and automatically start if the variable bridge_${iface} exists
329
330 net.example - fixed up documentation for changed behaviour above
331
332 03 Nov 2004; Mike Frysinger <vapier@gentoo.org>:
333
334 When launching critical services in /sbin/rc, make sure we source
335 the conf.d file (if it exists). Resolves #69956.
336
337 03 Nov 2004; Roy Marples <uberlord@gentoo.org>:
338
339 net-scripts/init.d/net.lo
340 - fixed !module when it's not installed
341 - we can now specify null inet addresses in the config
342 this allows a pure inet6 setup
343 - shutdown lo the same way we bring it up
344
345 net-scripts/net.modules.d/ifconfig
346 - changed IPv6 to inet6 in output of adding inet6 addresses
347 - just output inet6 address removed, not eth0 del foo
348
349 net-scripts/net.modules.d/iproute2
350 - fix deletion of non-link addresses - fixes bug #65417 (again)
351 - handle inet6 addresses like ifconfig - fixes more bug #65417
352
353 net-scripts/conf.d/net.example
354 - noted that inet6 addresses do not create aliases
355 - added examples of assigning inet6 addresses
356
357 net-scripts/net.modules.d/iwconfig
358 - improve error message when card does not support scanning
