86 * Add PAM patch contrib/notify-pam-dead.patch based on Debian bug
87 #68621, which will add PAM support for programs spawned by init on
88 the console like sulogin. Based on patch by Topi Miettinen. This
89 patch is not applied by default yet while we review its
90 usefullness. It is only helpful for session handling, as sulogin
91 do not use and will not use a PAM conv() function. The current
92 sulogin is able to handle DES as well as MD5, SHA, and Blowfish
93 encrypted passwords due using getpwnam(3).

178 Ubuntu.
179 * Add references between killall5 and pidof manual pages. Patch from Debian.
180 * Modify killall to work better with user space file system, by
181 changing cwd to /proc when stopping and killing processes, and
182 avoiding stat() when the value isn't used. Also, lock process
183 pages in memory to avoid paging when user processes are stopped.
184 Patch from Debian and Goswin von Brederlow with changes by Kel
185 Modderman.
186 * Change shutdown to only accept flags -H and -P with the -h flag,

197 * Fixed up bootlogd to read /proc/cmdline. Also keep an internal
198 linebuffer to process \r, \t and ^H. It is becoming useable.
199 * Applied trivial OWL patches
200 * Block signals in syslog(), since syslog() is not re-entrant
201 (James Olin Oden <joden@malachi.lee.k12.nc.us>, redhat bug #97534)
202 * Minor adjustements so that sysvinit compiles on the Hurd
203 * killall5 now skips kernel threads
204 * Inittab entries with both 'S' and other runlevels were broken.
205 Fix by Bryan Kadzban <bryan@kadzban.is-a-geek.net>
206 * Changed initreq.h to be more flexible and forwards-compatible.
207 * You can now through /dev/initctl set environment variables in
208 init that will be inherited by its children. For now, only
209 variables prefixed with INIT_ can be set and the maximum is
210 16 variables. There's also a length limit due to the size
211 of struct init_request, so it should be safe from abuse.
212 * Option -P and -H to shutdown set INIT_HALT=POWERDOWN and
213 INIT_HALT=HALT as environment variables as described above
214 * Add "mountpoint" utility.
215 * Slightly better algorithm in killall5.c:pidof()
216 * Added some patches from fedora-core (halt-usage, last -t,
217 sulogin-message, user-console)

225 otherwise there is no way to set a timeout.

228 * Fixed warts in dowall.c ("Dmitry V. Levin" <ldv@altlinux.org>)
229 * Fix init.c::spawn(). The "f" variable was used both as file descriptor
230 and waitpid(2) return code. In certain circumstances, this leads to
231 TIOCSCTTY with wrong file descriptor (Vladimir N. Oleynik).

244 'behave as system init even if you're not PID#1'. Useful for

412 May be useful for smoother (heh) upgrades.
413 24 Feb 1998, AV:
414 did_boot made global and added to state - thanks, Miquel.
415 Yet another file descriptors leak - close state pipe if
416 re_exec fails.

428 * Use siginterrupt, now that system calls are restarted by default.
429 Main symptom was that the sulogin timeout didn't work but there
430 might have been more hidden problems.
431 * Kill process immidiately if turned off in inittab
432 * Fixed sulogin check on tty arg.
433 * Use strerror() instead of sys_errlist
434 * wall now supports a '-n' option to suppress [most of] the banner.
435 Debian doesn't use sysvinit's wall, but apparently Redhat does.
436 * Add '-F' (forcefsck) option to shutdown
437 * Close and reopen /dev/initctl on SIGUSR1 (mainly for a /dev in ram)

510 * Fixed init panic'ing on empty lines in /etc/inittab
511 * Changed default PATH to include /usr/local/sbin
512 * Set /dev/console as controlling terminal for sysinit,bootwait,wait,powerwait
513 This allows using ^C to interrupt some parts of eg the boot process.

515 /var/log and /etc itself.

672
6732.4g 15-May-93

676 keyword for catching the TreeFingerSalute is
677 now "ctrlaltdel" instead of "power{wait,fail}".
678
6792.4a 22-Apr-93
680- Fixed last to reckognize BSD style wtmp logging.
681- Changed init to write wtmp records that are
682 SysV compliant but are also reckognized by the
683 BSD last. Added a '+' option to the 'process'
684 field of inittab, for getties that want to do
685 their own utmp/wtmp housekeeping (kludge!).
686- Now accepts a runlevel on the command line,
687 and reckognizes the 'auto' argument. (Sets the
688 environment variable AUTOBOOT to YES)
689
6902.2.3 24-Mar-93
691- Ripped out the 'leave' action. To difficult, and
692 unneeded.

695- This version is stable enough to post.
696
6972.2 02-Mar-93
698- Made wait()'s asynchronous
699- Changed whole thing to one big state machine
700- Now using 'pseudo levels' # & * for SYSINIT & BOOT
701- Added a new type of 'action', called leave. This
702 process will be executed when the system goes from a
703 runlevel specified in it's runlevel field to a
704 level that's not. Nice to bring down NFS and the like.
705
7062.1 28-Jan-93
707- Fixed a bug with 'boot' and 'once'.
708- Check 'initdefault' for validity.
709- Reckognizes "single" as command line argument.
710- Retries execvp with 'sh -c exec ..' if command

713
7142.0 08-Dec-92
715- Rewrote the code totally, so started with a new
716 version number.

719 run standalone for test purposes.
720
7211.3, 05-Jul-92
722- Got a 386, so installed Linux. Added 'soft' reboot
723 to be default under linux. Fixed some typos.
724
7251.2, 16-Jun-92
726- Bugreport from Michael Haardt ; removed deadlock
727 and added 'waitpid' instead of 'wait' for SYSV.
728
7291.1, 30-Apr-92
730- Read manual wrong: there is no 'action' field called
731 process, but all entries are of type process. Every
732 'process' get exec'ed by /bin/sh -c 'exec command'.
733- Rapidly respawning processes are caught in the act.
734- _SYSV support is really Linux support,
735 done by poe@daimi.aau.dk on 25-Mar-92.
736
737 1.0, 01-Feb-92
738- Initial version, very primitive for the Minix
739 operating system. Required some mods. to the
740 kernel.
741
