255 linebuffer to process \r, \t and ^H. It is becoming useable.
256 * Applied trivial OWL patches
257 * Block signals in syslog(), since syslog() is not re-entrant
258 (James Olin Oden <joden@malachi.lee.k12.nc.us>, redhat bug #97534)

260 * killall5 now skips kernel threads
261 * Inittab entries with both 'S' and other runlevels were broken.
262 Fix by Bryan Kadzban <bryan@kadzban.is-a-geek.net>
263 * Changed initreq.h to be more flexible and forwards-compatible.
264 * You can now through /dev/initctl set environment variables in
265 init that will be inherited by its children. For now, only
266 variables prefixed with INIT_ can be set and the maximum is
267 16 variables. There's also a length limit due to the size
268 of struct init_request, so it should be safe from abuse.
269 * Option -P and -H to shutdown set INIT_HALT=POWERDOWN and
270 INIT_HALT=HALT as environment variables as described above
271 * Add "mountpoint" utility.
272 * Slightly better algorithm in killall5.c:pidof()

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

438 thanks to Nick Andrew <nick@zeta.org.au> and
439 David Parrish <dparrish@zeta.org.au>
440 * Fixes bugs:
441 #21616: sysvinit: sulogin thinks md5 root password is bad
442 #21765: sysvinit: Typo in `killall5.c'
443 #21775: sysvinit: sysvinit does not support MD5 hashed passwords
444 #21990: /usr/bin/last: unnecessary memset and off-by-one bug
445 #22084: sysvinit 2.74-4: SIGPWR missing on sparc
446 #21900: init, powerfail events, and shutdown.allow
447 #21702: init 0 does not work as expected...
448 #21728: sysvinit: Typo in `init.c'
449 #22363: sysvinit: discrepance btw. manpage and /sbin/init

457 by root). Thanks to Chris Evans <chris@ferret.lmh.ox.ac.uk>

463 * Should compile with glibc 1.99 :)
464 * Change behaviour of reboot(1) and halt(1) so that the default when
465 the runlevel can't be determined is to call shutdown.
466 * Added re-exec patch from Al Viro (21 Feb 1998):
467 'U' flag added to telinit. It forces init to re-exec itself
468 (passing its state through exec, certainly).
469 May be useful for smoother (heh) upgrades.
470 24 Feb 1998, AV:
471 did_boot made global and added to state - thanks, Miquel.
472 Yet another file descriptors leak - close state pipe if
473 re_exec fails.

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

511 * Fix race condition with SIGCHLD in spawn()
512 (thanks to Alon Ziv <alonz@CS.Technion.AC.IL>)
513 * Compress all manpages (missed 2)
514 * Compiled for libc6

568 * Changed default PATH to include /usr/local/sbin
569 * Set /dev/console as controlling terminal for sysinit,bootwait,wait,powerwait
570 This allows using ^C to interrupt some parts of eg the boot process.

713- Ignores unknown command line arguments.

715- Lots of changes all over the place.
716 (like showing runlevel in "ps" listing, logging
717 runlevel into utmp file etc)
718- now using "reliable" signals instead of V7 style.
719- Updated all scripts. Examples are in two directories:
720 etc (normal) and etc-sysv (sysv style scripts).
721- runlevel 0 = halt, 1 = single user, 6 = reboot.
722- added support for serial console.
723- updated Propaganda, manpages.
724- added shutdown access control.

729
7302.4g 15-May-93

732 hooked up an UPS to the Linux machine. The
733 keyword for catching the TreeFingerSalute is
734 now "ctrlaltdel" instead of "power{wait,fail}".
735
7362.4a 22-Apr-93
737- Fixed last to reckognize BSD style wtmp logging.
738- Changed init to write wtmp records that are
739 SysV compliant but are also reckognized by the
740 BSD last. Added a '+' option to the 'process'
741 field of inittab, for getties that want to do
742 their own utmp/wtmp housekeeping (kludge!).
743- Now accepts a runlevel on the command line,
744 and reckognizes the 'auto' argument. (Sets the
745 environment variable AUTOBOOT to YES)
746
7472.2.3 24-Mar-93
748- Ripped out the 'leave' action. To difficult, and
749 unneeded.
750- Going single user now kills _all_ processes.
751- Added '-t secs' option to all commands.
752- This version is stable enough to post.
753
7542.2 02-Mar-93
755- Made wait()'s asynchronous
756- Changed whole thing to one big state machine
757- Now using 'pseudo levels' # & * for SYSINIT & BOOT
758- Added a new type of 'action', called leave. This
759 process will be executed when the system goes from a
760 runlevel specified in it's runlevel field to a
761 level that's not. Nice to bring down NFS and the like.
762
7632.1 28-Jan-93
764- Fixed a bug with 'boot' and 'once'.
765- Check 'initdefault' for validity.
766- Reckognizes "single" as command line argument.
767- Retries execvp with 'sh -c exec ..' if command
768 is a shell script. (shouldn't execvp do this?)
769- Added patches to use syslog if defined.
770
7712.0 08-Dec-92
772- Rewrote the code totally, so started with a new
773 version number.
774- Dropped Minix support, this code now is Linux - specific.
775- With TEST switch on, this init & telinit can
776 run standalone for test purposes.
777
7781.3, 05-Jul-92
779- Got a 386, so installed Linux. Added 'soft' reboot
780 to be default under linux. Fixed some typos.
781
7821.2, 16-Jun-92
783- Bugreport from Michael Haardt ; removed deadlock
784 and added 'waitpid' instead of 'wait' for SYSV.
785
7861.1, 30-Apr-92
787- Read manual wrong: there is no 'action' field called
788 process, but all entries are of type process. Every
789 'process' get exec'ed by /bin/sh -c 'exec command'.
790- Rapidly respawning processes are caught in the act.
791- _SYSV support is really Linux support,
792 done by poe@daimi.aau.dk on 25-Mar-92.
793
794 1.0, 01-Feb-92
795- Initial version, very primitive for the Minix
796 operating system. Required some mods. to the
797 kernel.
