3 [ Werner Fink ]
4 * Remove man-db tag for encoding for canonical man
5 * Sulogin: try to detect the real device(s) used for the system console
6 /dev/console if but only if /dev/console is used. On Linux this can
7 be more than one device, e.g. a serial line as well as a virtual
8 console as well as a simple printer.
9 * Fix counting message lines in wall. Patch from Petr Lautrbach.
10 * Fix bad printf conversion specifier in wall. Patch from S├ębastien Luttringer.
11 * Add patches from Openwall project. Thanks goes to Solar Designer.
12 * Add code to detect the system consoles with the help of the
13 new /proc/consoles files of linux kernel 2.6.38+
14 * Try to make utmpdump IPv6 valid, change based on suggestion from
15 Navdeep Bhatia (see local bug #32429)
16 * Fix signal and alarm handling based on the patch from Florent Viard.
17 (was local bug #32304)
18 * Add fix for Redhat bug #573346: last incorrectly displays IPv6
19 addresses (was local bug #29497)
20 * Correct fix for Debian bug #547073: use IUTF8 flag if defined
21 and if already set to make sure the utf-8 flag is not cleared
22 from the tty. Patch from Samuel Thibault.
23 * Include limits.h in killall.c to enforce definition of PATH_MAX
24 * Fix sysvinit bug #29758 Linker invocation should not contain
25 headers. Change based on patch from Elias Pipping.
26 * Add fix for Debian bug #580272: use return value 1 of
27 is_selinux_enabled() to determine if SELinux is enabled,
28 otherwise initialize SELinux and load the policy. Patch from
29 Petter Reinholdtsen.
30 * Make quotes visible in example of the manual page of fstab-decode
31
32 [ Petter Reinholdtsen ]
33 * Next release will be 2.89dsf.
34 * Add #ifdef in bootlogd.c to avoid gcc warnings about unused
35 variable on non-linux platforms.
36 * Only set the VSWTC field for termios in init if it is available,
37 to get the source building on FreeBSD.

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

144 of uptime too. In shutdown lines print downtimes rather than
145 the time between downs. Fix typo in string compare in last.c.
146 Patch by Thomas Hood.
147 * Improve handling of IPv6 addresses in last. Patch from Fedora.
148 * Document last options in usage information, previously only
149 mentioned in the manual page.

151 of the short form provided by default. Patch from Olaf Dabrunz
152 and SuSe.
153 * Adjust build rules to make sure the installed binaries
154 are stripped.
155 * Increase the compiler warning level when building.
156 * Fix utmp/wtmp updating on 64-bit platforms. Patch by Bill
157 Nottingham and Fedora.

159 Patch from Christian 'Dr. Disk' Hechelmann and Fedora.
160 * Make sure to use execle and no execl when passing environment to
161 the new process. Patch from RedHat.
162 * Correct init to make sure the waiting status is preserved across
163 re-exec. Patch from RedHat.
164 * Correct init to avoid race condition when starting programs during
165 boot. Patch from SuSe.
166 * Allow 'telinit u' in runlevels 0 and 6. Patch from Thomas Hood.
167 * Change install rules to make pidof an absolute symlink. Patch from
168 Thomas Hood.
169 * Improve error message from init if fork() fail. Patch found in Suse.
170 * Add support for SE Linux capability handling. Patch from Manoj
171 Srivastava, adjusted to avoid aborting if SE policy was loaded in
172 the initrd with patch from Bill Nottingham and Fedora.
173 * Add -c option to pidof for only matching processes with the same
174 process root. Ignore -c when not running as root. Patch from
175 Thomas Woerner and Fedora.
176 * Adjust init to terminate argv0 with one 0 rather than two so that
177 process name can be one character longer. Patch by Kir Kolyshkin.
178 * Make sure bootlogd exit with non-error exit code when forking of
179 the child successfully.
180 * Add bootlogd option -s to make it possible to control the use of
181 fdatasync(). Patch from Thomas Hood.
182 * Add bootlogd option -c to tell it to create the log file if it does
183 not exist. Patch from Thomas Hood.
184 * Let bootlogd also look at ttyB* devices to work on HPPA. Patch
185 from Thomas Hood.

189 to reschedule. Patch from SuSe.
190 * Modify pidof to not print empty line if no pid was found.

195 Patch from Bill Nottingham and Fedora.
196 * Modify init to shut down IDE, SCSI and SATA disks properly. Patches
197 from Sebastian Reichelt, Werner Fink and SuSe.

199 string lengths. Patch from SuSe.
200 * Change wall to make halt include hostname in output.
201 * Change killall to avoid killing init by mistake. Patch from SuSe.
202 * Change killall5 to use the exit value to report if it found any
203 processes to kill. Patch from Debian.

207 * Add references between killall5 and pidof manual pages. Patch from Debian.
208 * Modify killall to work better with user space file system, by
209 changing cwd to /proc when stopping and killing processes, and
210 avoiding stat() when the value isn't used. Also, lock process
211 pages in memory to avoid paging when user processes are stopped.
212 Patch from Debian and Goswin von Brederlow with changes by Kel
213 Modderman.
214 * Change shutdown to only accept flags -H and -P with the -h flag,

224
225 * Fixed up bootlogd to read /proc/cmdline. Also keep an internal
226 linebuffer to process \r, \t and ^H. It is becoming useable.
227 * Applied trivial OWL patches
228 * Block signals in syslog(), since syslog() is not re-entrant
229 (James Olin Oden <joden@malachi.lee.k12.nc.us>, redhat bug #97534)
230 * Minor adjustements so that sysvinit compiles on the Hurd
231 * killall5 now skips kernel threads
232 * Inittab entries with both 'S' and other runlevels were broken.
233 Fix by Bryan Kadzban <bryan@kadzban.is-a-geek.net>
234 * Changed initreq.h to be more flexible and forwards-compatible.
235 * You can now through /dev/initctl set environment variables in
236 init that will be inherited by its children. For now, only
237 variables prefixed with INIT_ can be set and the maximum is
238 16 variables. There's also a length limit due to the size
239 of struct init_request, so it should be safe from abuse.
240 * Option -P and -H to shutdown set INIT_HALT=POWERDOWN and
241 INIT_HALT=HALT as environment variables as described above
242 * Add "mountpoint" utility.
243 * Slightly better algorithm in killall5.c:pidof()
244 * Added some patches from fedora-core (halt-usage, last -t,
245 sulogin-message, user-console)

251 * Add IPv6 support in last(1)
252 * Sulogin: even if the root password is empty, ask for a password-
253 otherwise there is no way to set a timeout.
254 * Removed support for ioctl.save.
255 * Turned of support for /etc/initrunlvl and /var/run/initrunlvl
256 * Fixed warts in dowall.c ("Dmitry V. Levin" <ldv@altlinux.org>)
257 * Fix init.c::spawn(). The "f" variable was used both as file descriptor
258 and waitpid(2) return code. In certain circumstances, this leads to
259 TIOCSCTTY with wrong file descriptor (Vladimir N. Oleynik).
260 * Fix fd leak in sulogin (Dmitry V. Levin).
261 * More error checking in all wait() calling code (Dmitry V. Levin).
262 * Fix argv[] initialization in spawn() (Dmitry V. Levin).

435 * Change behaviour of reboot(1) and halt(1) so that the default when
436 the runlevel can't be determined is to call shutdown.
437 * Added re-exec patch from Al Viro (21 Feb 1998):
438 'U' flag added to telinit. It forces init to re-exec itself
439 (passing its state through exec, certainly).
440 May be useful for smoother (heh) upgrades.
441 24 Feb 1998, AV:
442 did_boot made global and added to state - thanks, Miquel.
443 Yet another file descriptors leak - close state pipe if
444 re_exec fails.

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

682
683 2.50 14-Feb-1994
684 - Ignores unknown command line arguments.
685 - Modelled more after the "real" sysVinit
686 - Lots of changes all over the place.
687 (like showing runlevel in "ps" listing, logging
688 runlevel into utmp file etc)
689 - now using "reliable" signals instead of V7 style.
690 - Updated all scripts. Examples are in two directories:
691 etc (normal) and etc-sysv (sysv style scripts).
692 - runlevel 0 = halt, 1 = single user, 6 = reboot.
693 - added support for serial console.
694 - updated Propaganda, manpages.
695 - added shutdown access control.
696
697 2.4 24-May-93
698 - Send out the official version into the world as
699 SysVinit-2.4.tar.z.
700
701 2.4g 15-May-93
702 - Changed init to really catch SIGPWR 'cause we
703 hooked up an UPS to the Linux machine. The
704 keyword for catching the TreeFingerSalute is
705 now "ctrlaltdel" instead of "power{wait,fail}".
706
707 2.4a 22-Apr-93
708 - Fixed last to reckognize BSD style wtmp logging.
709 - Changed init to write wtmp records that are
710 SysV compliant but are also reckognized by the
711 BSD last. Added a '+' option to the 'process'
712 field of inittab, for getties that want to do
713 their own utmp/wtmp housekeeping (kludge!).
714 - Now accepts a runlevel on the command line,
715 and reckognizes the 'auto' argument. (Sets the
716 environment variable AUTOBOOT to YES)
717
718 2.2.3 24-Mar-93
719 - Ripped out the 'leave' action. To difficult, and
720 unneeded.
721 - Going single user now kills _all_ processes.

723 - This version is stable enough to post.
724
725 2.2 02-Mar-93
726 - Made wait()'s asynchronous
727 - Changed whole thing to one big state machine
728 - Now using 'pseudo levels' # & * for SYSINIT & BOOT
729 - Added a new type of 'action', called leave. This
730 process will be executed when the system goes from a
731 runlevel specified in it's runlevel field to a
732 level that's not. Nice to bring down NFS and the like.
733
734 2.1 28-Jan-93
735 - Fixed a bug with 'boot' and 'once'.
736 - Check 'initdefault' for validity.
737 - Reckognizes "single" as command line argument.
738 - Retries execvp with 'sh -c exec ..' if command
739 is a shell script. (shouldn't execvp do this?)
740 - Added patches to use syslog if defined.
741
742 2.0 08-Dec-92
743 - Rewrote the code totally, so started with a new
744 version number.
745 - Dropped Minix support, this code now is Linux - specific.
746 - With TEST switch on, this init & telinit can
747 run standalone for test purposes.
748
749 1.3, 05-Jul-92
750 - Got a 386, so installed Linux. Added 'soft' reboot
751 to be default under linux. Fixed some typos.
752
753 1.2, 16-Jun-92
754 - Bugreport from Michael Haardt ; removed deadlock
755 and added 'waitpid' instead of 'wait' for SYSV.
756
757 1.1, 30-Apr-92
758 - Read manual wrong: there is no 'action' field called
759 process, but all entries are of type process. Every
760 'process' get exec'ed by /bin/sh -c 'exec command'.
761 - Rapidly respawning processes are caught in the act.
762 - _SYSV support is really Linux support,
763 done by poe@daimi.aau.dk on 25-Mar-92.
764
765 1.0, 01-Feb-92
766 - Initial version, very primitive for the Minix
767 operating system. Required some mods. to the
768 kernel.
769
