32
33 [ Petter Reinholdtsen ]
34 * Mention new home on Savannah in README.
35 * Revert change from Fedora/RedHat where the now obsolete command
36 INIT_CMD_CHANGECONS was introduced. Based on feedback and patch
37 from Bill Nottingham.
38 * Adjust makefile to make sure the install directories are created
39 before files are copied into them.
40 * Simplify build rules, based on patch from Mike Frysinger and Gentoo.
41 * Fix minor bug in optimizing of argument parsing. Based on
42 report from jakemus on freshmeat.
43 * Add casts to get rid of compiler warning about signed/unsigned issues.
44 * Change tty handling in init to make sure the UTF-8 flag is not cleared
45 on boot. Patch from Samuel Thibault.
46 * Add Makefile in toplevel directory.
47 * Print usage information when shutdown is used by non-root user.
48 Patch from Mike Frysinger and Gentoo.
49 * Sync shutdown manual page and usage information. Patch from Mike
50 Frysinger and Gentoo.
51 * Fix race condition in utmp writing. Patch from Gil Kloepfer via
52 Mike Frysinger and Gentoo.
53 * Rewrite findtty() in bootlogd to recursively search /dev/ for the
54 correct device, to handle terminal devices for example in /dev/pty/.
55 Patch from Debian.
56 * Make sure bootlogd findpty() returns an error value when it fails to
57 find a usable pty. Patch from Rob Leslie via Debian.
58 * Make sure bootlogd fflush() every line, even if asked not to flush
59 to disk using fdatasync(). Patch from Scott Gifford via Debian.
60 * Add compatibility code to handle old path "/etc/powerstatus" for a
61 while.
62 * Incude definition for MNT_DETACH which is missing in older GNU libc
63 headers.
64 * Do not strip binaries before installing them, to make it easier to
65 get binaries with debug information installed.
66
67 [ Werner Fink ]
68 * Add the comment from Andrea Arcangeli about the correct
69 place of setting the default childhandler within spawn().
70 * Make sure that newline is printed out for last(1) even
71 if an utmp record entry is truncated.
72 * Check if utmp not only exists but also is writable and delay
73 writing out of the utmp runlevel record if utmp is not writable.
74 * Be able to find libcrypt also on 64 bit based architectures.
75 * Add option -w to the last command to display the full user and
76 domain names in the output. Patch from Petr Lautrbach.
77 * Add a manual page for utmpdump as this tool is sometimes
78 very useful even if not intended for normal use.
79 * Use paths.h macros for wall
80 * Change path "/etc/powerstatus" to "/var/run/powerstatus"
81 * Detected also removable block devices at halt/reboot to be able
82 to flush data and send them the ATA standby command. This should
83 avoid data loss on USB sticks and other removable block devices.
84 * Flush block devices on halt/reboot if not done by the kernel.
85 * Set SHELL to /bin/sh in the environmant of shutdown.
86 * Retry to write out shutdown messages if interrupted.
87 * pidof/killall5 - make omit pid list a dynamic one.
88 * pidof - provide '-n' to skip stat(2) syscall on network based FS.
89 * init - avoid compiler warnings
90 * init - initialize console by using the macros from ttydefaults.h
91 * init - add the possiblity to ignore further interrupts from keyboard
92 * init - add the possiblity to set sane terminal line settings
93 * sulogin - add the possibility to reset the terminal io
94 * Fix some minor problems
95 * init - enable is_selinux_enabled() to detect selinuxfs
96 * Add fix for Debian bug #536574 -- Can be enabled by -DACCTON_OFF
97 * Add helper program fstab-decode to make it easier to handle
98 /etc/mtab content. Patch by Miloslav Trmac and Fedora.
99 * Add fix for Debian bug #335023 - Make sure TERM is set on FreeBSD.
100 * Add fix for Debian bug #374038 - Make it clear that shutdown -c can
101 only cancel a waiting shutdown, not an active one.
102 * Add note to pidof manual page about the use of readlink(2). Patch by
103 Bill Nottingham and Fedora.
104 * Add PAM patch contrib/notify-pam-dead.patch based on Debian bug
105 #68621, which will add PAM support for programs spawned by init on
106 the console like sulogin. Based on patch by Topi Miettinen. This
107 patch is not applied by default yet while we review its
108 usefullness. It is only helpful for session handling, as sulogin
109 do not use and will not use a PAM conv() function. The current
110 sulogin is able to handle DES as well as MD5, SHA, and Blowfish
111 encrypted passwords due using getpwnam(3).
112 * Move utmp/wtmp before the execvp() in spawn() to be sure to
113 use the correct pid even on a controlling tty
114 * Remaining problem is that the pid of the second fork() for
115 getting a controlling tty isn't that reported by spawn()
116 * Re-enable writting utmp/wtmp for boot scripts
117 * Extend sulogin to support additional encryption algorithms
118 * Re-enable maintenance message of sulogin
119 * Enable the sulogin fallback password check to handle MD5, SHA, and
120 Blowfish encrypted passwords in case of getpwnam(3) fails.
121 * sulogin picking the SELinux context was broken. Patch by Daniel Walsh

125 sysvinit (2.87dsf) world; urgency=low
126
127 * Fix typos and do minor updates in the manual pages.
128 * Correct section of mountpoint(1).
129 * Document -e and -t options for telinit in init(8).
130 * Update address of FSF in the COPYRIGHT file.
131 * Document in halt(8) that -n might not disable all syncing.
132 Patch by Bill Nottingham and Fedora
133 * Adjust output from "last -x". In reboot lines, print endpoint
134 of uptime too. In shutdown lines print downtimes rather than
135 the time between downs. Fix typo in string compare in last.c.
136 Patch by Thomas Hood.
137 * Improve handling of IPv6 addresses in last. Patch from Fedora.
138 * Document last options in usage information, previously only
139 mentioned in the manual page.
140 * Add new option -F to last, to output full date string instead
141 of the short form provided by default. Patch from Olaf Dabrunz
142 and SuSe.
143 * Adjust build rules to make sure the installed binaries
144 are stripped.
145 * Increase the compiler warning level when building.
146 * Fix utmp/wtmp updating on 64-bit platforms. Patch by Bill
147 Nottingham and Fedora.
148 * Avoid unchecked return value from malloc() in utmpdump.
149 Patch from Christian 'Dr. Disk' Hechelmann and Fedora.
150 * Make sure to use execle and no execl when passing environment to
151 the new process. Patch from RedHat.
152 * Correct init to make sure the waiting status is preserved across
153 re-exec. Patch from RedHat.
154 * Correct init to avoid race condition when starting programs during
155 boot. Patch from SuSe.
156 * Allow 'telinit u' in runlevels 0 and 6. Patch from Thomas Hood.
157 * Change install rules to make pidof an absolute symlink. Patch from
158 Thomas Hood.
159 * Improve error message from init if fork() fail. Patch found in Suse.
160 * Add support for SE Linux capability handling. Patch from Manoj
161 Srivastava, adjusted to avoid aborting if SE policy was loaded in
162 the initrd with patch from Bill Nottingham and Fedora.
163 * Add -c option to pidof for only matching processes with the same
164 process root. Ignore -c when not running as root. Patch from
165 Thomas Woerner and Fedora.
166 * Adjust init to terminate argv0 with one 0 rather than two so that
167 process name can be one character longer. Patch by Kir Kolyshkin.
168 * Make sure bootlogd exit with non-error exit code when forking of
169 the child successfully.
170 * Add bootlogd option -s to make it possible to control the use of
171 fdatasync(). Patch from Thomas Hood.
172 * Add bootlogd option -c to tell it to create the log file if it does
173 not exist. Patch from Thomas Hood.
174 * Let bootlogd also look at ttyB* devices to work on HPPA. Patch
175 from Thomas Hood.
176 * Change init to use setenv() instead of putenv, make sure the PATH
177 value is usable on re-exec. Patch from Thomas Hood.
178 * Add usleep in killall5 after killing processes, to force the kernel
179 to reschedule. Patch from SuSe.
180 * Modify pidof to not print empty line if no pid was found.
181 * Modify init and sulogin to fix emergency mode's tty, making sure ^C
182 and ^Z work when booting with 'emergency' kernel option. Patch from
183 Samuel Thibault.
184 * Modify init to allow some time for failed opens to resolve themselves.
185 Patch from Bill Nottingham and Fedora.
186 * Modify init to shut down IDE, SCSI and SATA disks properly. Patches
187 from Sebastian Reichelt, Werner Fink and SuSe.
188 * Modify wall to use UT_LINESIZE from <utmp.h> instead of hardcoded
189 string lengths. Patch from SuSe.
190 * Change wall to make halt include hostname in output.
191 * Change killall to avoid killing init by mistake. Patch from SuSe.
192 * Change killall5 to use the exit value to report if it found any
193 processes to kill. Patch from Debian.

195 some pids during shutdown. Based on patch from Colin Watson and
196 Ubuntu.
197 * Add references between killall5 and pidof manual pages. Patch from Debian.
198 * Modify killall to work better with user space file system, by
199 changing cwd to /proc when stopping and killing processes, and
200 avoiding stat() when the value isn't used. Also, lock process
201 pages in memory to avoid paging when user processes are stopped.
202 Patch from Debian and Goswin von Brederlow with changes by Kel
203 Modderman.
204 * Change shutdown to only accept flags -H and -P with the -h flag,
205 and document this requirement in the manual page.
206 * Change reboot/halt to work properly when used as a login shell.
207 Patch by Dale R. Worley and Fedora.
208 * Let sulogin fall back to the staticly linked /bin/sash if both roots
209 shell and /bin/sh fail to execute.

213 sysvinit (2.86) cistron; urgency=low
214
215 * Fixed up bootlogd to read /proc/cmdline. Also keep an internal
216 linebuffer to process \r, \t and ^H. It is becoming useable.
217 * Applied trivial OWL patches
218 * Block signals in syslog(), since syslog() is not re-entrant
219 (James Olin Oden <joden@malachi.lee.k12.nc.us>, redhat bug #97534)
220 * Minor adjustements so that sysvinit compiles on the Hurd
221 * killall5 now skips kernel threads
222 * Inittab entries with both 'S' and other runlevels were broken.
223 Fix by Bryan Kadzban <bryan@kadzban.is-a-geek.net>
224 * Changed initreq.h to be more flexible and forwards-compatible.
225 * You can now through /dev/initctl set environment variables in
226 init that will be inherited by its children. For now, only
227 variables prefixed with INIT_ can be set and the maximum is
228 16 variables. There's also a length limit due to the size
229 of struct init_request, so it should be safe from abuse.
230 * Option -P and -H to shutdown set INIT_HALT=POWERDOWN and
231 INIT_HALT=HALT as environment variables as described above
232 * Add "mountpoint" utility.
233 * Slightly better algorithm in killall5.c:pidof()
234 * Added some patches from fedora-core (halt-usage, last -t,
235 sulogin-message, user-console)

240
241 * Add IPv6 support in last(1)
242 * Sulogin: even if the root password is empty, ask for a password-
243 otherwise there is no way to set a timeout.
244 * Removed support for ioctl.save.
245 * Turned of support for /etc/initrunlvl and /var/run/initrunlvl
246 * Fixed warts in dowall.c ("Dmitry V. Levin" <ldv@altlinux.org>)
247 * Fix init.c::spawn(). The "f" variable was used both as file descriptor
248 and waitpid(2) return code. In certain circumstances, this leads to
249 TIOCSCTTY with wrong file descriptor (Vladimir N. Oleynik).
250 * Fix fd leak in sulogin (Dmitry V. Levin).
251 * More error checking in all wait() calling code (Dmitry V. Levin).
252 * Fix argv[] initialization in spawn() (Dmitry V. Levin).
253 * Change strncpy to strncat in most places (Dmitry V. Levin).

258
259 * Don't use /etc/initlvl interface for telinit; only use /dev/initctl,
260 and give a clear error when that fails.
261 * Add -i/--init command line flag to init - this tells init
262 'behave as system init even if you're not PID#1'. Useful for
263 testing in chroot/jail type environments.

424 * Should compile with glibc 1.99 :)
425 * Change behaviour of reboot(1) and halt(1) so that the default when
426 the runlevel can't be determined is to call shutdown.
427 * Added re-exec patch from Al Viro (21 Feb 1998):
428 'U' flag added to telinit. It forces init to re-exec itself
429 (passing its state through exec, certainly).
430 May be useful for smoother (heh) upgrades.
431 24 Feb 1998, AV:
432 did_boot made global and added to state - thanks, Miquel.
433 Yet another file descriptors leak - close state pipe if

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

676 - Lots of changes all over the place.
677 (like showing runlevel in "ps" listing, logging
678 runlevel into utmp file etc)
679 - now using "reliable" signals instead of V7 style.
680 - Updated all scripts. Examples are in two directories:
681 etc (normal) and etc-sysv (sysv style scripts).

683 - added support for serial console.
684 - updated Propaganda, manpages.
685 - added shutdown access control.

689 SysVinit-2.4.tar.z.
690
691 2.4g 15-May-93
692 - Changed init to really catch SIGPWR 'cause we
693 hooked up an UPS to the Linux machine. The
694 keyword for catching the TreeFingerSalute is
695 now "ctrlaltdel" instead of "power{wait,fail}".
696
697 2.4a 22-Apr-93
698 - Fixed last to reckognize BSD style wtmp logging.
699 - Changed init to write wtmp records that are
700 SysV compliant but are also reckognized by the
701 BSD last. Added a '+' option to the 'process'
702 field of inittab, for getties that want to do
703 their own utmp/wtmp housekeeping (kludge!).
704 - Now accepts a runlevel on the command line,
705 and reckognizes the 'auto' argument. (Sets the
706 environment variable AUTOBOOT to YES)
707
708 2.2.3 24-Mar-93
709 - Ripped out the 'leave' action. To difficult, and
710 unneeded.

713 - This version is stable enough to post.
714
715 2.2 02-Mar-93
716 - Made wait()'s asynchronous
717 - Changed whole thing to one big state machine
718 - Now using 'pseudo levels' # & * for SYSINIT & BOOT
719 - Added a new type of 'action', called leave. This
720 process will be executed when the system goes from a
721 runlevel specified in it's runlevel field to a
722 level that's not. Nice to bring down NFS and the like.
723
724 2.1 28-Jan-93
725 - Fixed a bug with 'boot' and 'once'.
726 - Check 'initdefault' for validity.
727 - Reckognizes "single" as command line argument.
728 - Retries execvp with 'sh -c exec ..' if command
729 is a shell script. (shouldn't execvp do this?)
730 - Added patches to use syslog if defined.
731
732 2.0 08-Dec-92
733 - Rewrote the code totally, so started with a new
734 version number.
735 - Dropped Minix support, this code now is Linux - specific.
736 - With TEST switch on, this init & telinit can
737 run standalone for test purposes.
738
739 1.3, 05-Jul-92
740 - Got a 386, so installed Linux. Added 'soft' reboot
741 to be default under linux. Fixed some typos.
742
743 1.2, 16-Jun-92
744 - Bugreport from Michael Haardt ; removed deadlock
745 and added 'waitpid' instead of 'wait' for SYSV.
746
747 1.1, 30-Apr-92
748 - Read manual wrong: there is no 'action' field called
749 process, but all entries are of type process. Every
750 'process' get exec'ed by /bin/sh -c 'exec command'.
751 - Rapidly respawning processes are caught in the act.
752 - _SYSV support is really Linux support,
753 done by poe@daimi.aau.dk on 25-Mar-92.
754
755 1.0, 01-Feb-92
756 - Initial version, very primitive for the Minix
757 operating system. Required some mods. to the
758 kernel.
759
