141 patch is not applied by default yet while we review its
142 usefullness. It is only helpful for session handling, as sulogin

250 linebuffer to process \r, \t and ^H. It is becoming useable.
251 * Applied trivial OWL patches
252 * Block signals in syslog(), since syslog() is not re-entrant
253 (James Olin Oden <joden@malachi.lee.k12.nc.us>, redhat bug #97534)
254 * Minor adjustements so that sysvinit compiles on the Hurd
255 * killall5 now skips kernel threads
256 * Inittab entries with both 'S' and other runlevels were broken.
257 Fix by Bryan Kadzban <bryan@kadzban.is-a-geek.net>
258 * Changed initreq.h to be more flexible and forwards-compatible.
259 * You can now through /dev/initctl set environment variables in
260 init that will be inherited by its children. For now, only
261 variables prefixed with INIT_ can be set and the maximum is
262 16 variables. There's also a length limit due to the size
263 of struct init_request, so it should be safe from abuse.
264 * Option -P and -H to shutdown set INIT_HALT=POWERDOWN and
265 INIT_HALT=HALT as environment variables as described above
266 * Add "mountpoint" utility.
267 * Slightly better algorithm in killall5.c:pidof()
268 * Added some patches from fedora-core (halt-usage, last -t,
269 sulogin-message, user-console)

407 * Change sulogin password buffer to 128 characters.
408 * Don't print control characters in dowall.c
409 * Try to open getenv ("CONSOLE"), /dev/console and /dev/tty0 in order.
410 For backwards compatibility when you try to boot a 2.0.x kernel
411 with a linux > 2.1.70 /dev/console device.
412 * Change src/Makefile for non-debian systems (mainly, RedHat)
413 * Try to create /dev/initctl if not present; check every time to see
414 if the dev/ino of /dev/initctl has changed and re-open it. This should
415 help devfs a bit.
416 * Send SIGUSR1 to init at bootup to let it re-open /dev/initctl;
417 again in support of devfs.
418 * Moved pidof to /bin (it's only a link to killall5 anyway)

435 * Fixes bugs:
436 #21616: sysvinit: sulogin thinks md5 root password is bad
437 #21765: sysvinit: Typo in `killall5.c'
438 #21775: sysvinit: sysvinit does not support MD5 hashed passwords

458 * Should compile with glibc 1.99 :)
459 * Change behaviour of reboot(1) and halt(1) so that the default when
460 the runlevel can't be determined is to call shutdown.
461 * Added re-exec patch from Al Viro (21 Feb 1998):
462 'U' flag added to telinit. It forces init to re-exec itself
463 (passing its state through exec, certainly).
464 May be useful for smoother (heh) upgrades.
465 24 Feb 1998, AV:
466 did_boot made global and added to state - thanks, Miquel.
467 Yet another file descriptors leak - close state pipe if
468 re_exec fails.

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

507 (thanks to Alon Ziv <alonz@CS.Technion.AC.IL>)

563 * Changed default PATH to include /usr/local/sbin
564 * Set /dev/console as controlling terminal for sysinit,bootwait,wait,powerwait

710- Lots of changes all over the place.
711 (like showing runlevel in "ps" listing, logging
712 runlevel into utmp file etc)
713- now using "reliable" signals instead of V7 style.
714- Updated all scripts. Examples are in two directories:
715 etc (normal) and etc-sysv (sysv style scripts).
716- runlevel 0 = halt, 1 = single user, 6 = reboot.
717- added support for serial console.

727 hooked up an UPS to the Linux machine. The
728 keyword for catching the TreeFingerSalute is
729 now "ctrlaltdel" instead of "power{wait,fail}".
730
7312.4a 22-Apr-93
732- Fixed last to reckognize BSD style wtmp logging.
733- Changed init to write wtmp records that are
734 SysV compliant but are also reckognized by the
735 BSD last. Added a '+' option to the 'process'
736 field of inittab, for getties that want to do
737 their own utmp/wtmp housekeeping (kludge!).
738- Now accepts a runlevel on the command line,
739 and reckognizes the 'auto' argument. (Sets the
740 environment variable AUTOBOOT to YES)
741
7422.2.3 24-Mar-93
743- Ripped out the 'leave' action. To difficult, and
744 unneeded.
745- Going single user now kills _all_ processes.
746- Added '-t secs' option to all commands.
747- This version is stable enough to post.
748
7492.2 02-Mar-93
750- Made wait()'s asynchronous
751- Changed whole thing to one big state machine
752- Now using 'pseudo levels' # & * for SYSINIT & BOOT
753- Added a new type of 'action', called leave. This
754 process will be executed when the system goes from a
755 runlevel specified in it's runlevel field to a
756 level that's not. Nice to bring down NFS and the like.
757
7582.1 28-Jan-93
759- Fixed a bug with 'boot' and 'once'.
760- Check 'initdefault' for validity.
761- Reckognizes "single" as command line argument.
762- Retries execvp with 'sh -c exec ..' if command
763 is a shell script. (shouldn't execvp do this?)
764- Added patches to use syslog if defined.
765
7662.0 08-Dec-92
767- Rewrote the code totally, so started with a new
768 version number.
769- Dropped Minix support, this code now is Linux - specific.
770- With TEST switch on, this init & telinit can
771 run standalone for test purposes.
772
7731.3, 05-Jul-92
774- Got a 386, so installed Linux. Added 'soft' reboot
775 to be default under linux. Fixed some typos.
776
7771.2, 16-Jun-92
778- Bugreport from Michael Haardt ; removed deadlock
779 and added 'waitpid' instead of 'wait' for SYSV.
780
7811.1, 30-Apr-92
782- Read manual wrong: there is no 'action' field called
783 process, but all entries are of type process. Every
784 'process' get exec'ed by /bin/sh -c 'exec command'.
785- Rapidly respawning processes are caught in the act.
786- _SYSV support is really Linux support,
787 done by poe@daimi.aau.dk on 25-Mar-92.
788
789 1.0, 01-Feb-92
790- Initial version, very primitive for the Minix
791 operating system. Required some mods. to the
792 kernel.
