39 from Bill Nottingham.
40 * Adjust makefile to make sure the install directories are created
41 before files are copied into them.
42 * Simplify build rules, based on patch from Mike Frysinger and Gentoo.
43 * Fix minor bug in optimizing of argument parsing. Based on
44 report from jakemus on freshmeat.
45 * Add casts to get rid of compiler warning about signed/unsigned issues.
46 * Change tty handling in init to make sure the UTF-8 flag is not cleared
47 on boot. Patch from Samuel Thibault.
48 * Add Makefile in toplevel directory.
49 * Print usage information when shutdown is used by non-root user.
50 Patch from Mike Frysinger and Gentoo.
51 * Sync shutdown manual page and usage information. Patch from Mike
52 Frysinger and Gentoo.
53 * Fix race condition in utmp writing. Patch from Gil Kloepfer via
54 Mike Frysinger and Gentoo.
55 * Rewrite findtty() in bootlogd to recursively search /dev/ for the
56 correct device, to handle terminal devices for example in /dev/pty/.
57 Patch from Debian.
58 * Make sure bootlogd findpty() returns an error value when it fails to
59 find a usable pty. Patch from Rob Leslie via Debian.
60 * Make sure bootlogd fflush() every line, even if asked not to flush
61 to disk using fdatasync(). Patch from Scott Gifford via Debian.
62 * Add compatibility code to handle old path "/etc/powerstatus" for a
63 while.
64 * Incude definition for MNT_DETACH which is missing in older GNU libc
65 headers.
66 * Do not strip binaries before installing them, to make it easier to
67 get binaries with debug information installed.

69 [ Werner Fink ]
70 * Add the comment from Andrea Arcangeli about the correct
71 place of setting the default childhandler within spawn().
72 * Make sure that newline is printed out for last(1) even
73 if an utmp record entry is truncated.
74 * Check if utmp not only exists but also is writable and delay
75 writing out of the utmp runlevel record if utmp is not writable.
76 * Be able to find libcrypt also on 64 bit based architectures.
77 * Add option -w to the last command to display the full user and
78 domain names in the output. Patch from Petr Lautrbach.
79 * Add a manual page for utmpdump as this tool is sometimes
80 very useful even if not intended for normal use.
81 * Use paths.h macros for wall
82 * Change path "/etc/powerstatus" to "/var/run/powerstatus"
83 * Detected also removable block devices at halt/reboot to be able
84 to flush data and send them the ATA standby command. This should
85 avoid data loss on USB sticks and other removable block devices.
86 * Flush block devices on halt/reboot if not done by the kernel.
87 * Set SHELL to /bin/sh in the environmant of shutdown.
88 * Retry to write out shutdown messages if interrupted.
89 * pidof/killall5 - make omit pid list a dynamic one.
90 * pidof - provide '-n' to skip stat(2) syscall on network based FS.
91 * init - avoid compiler warnings
92 * init - initialize console by using the macros from ttydefaults.h
93 * init - add the possiblity to ignore further interrupts from keyboard
94 * init - add the possiblity to set sane terminal line settings
95 * sulogin - add the possibility to reset the terminal io
96 * Fix some minor problems
97 * init - enable is_selinux_enabled() to detect selinuxfs
98 * Add fix for Debian bug #536574 -- Can be enabled by -DACCTON_OFF
99 * Add helper program fstab-decode to make it easier to handle
100 /etc/mtab content. Patch by Miloslav Trmac and Fedora.
101 * Add fix for Debian bug #335023 - Make sure TERM is set on FreeBSD.
102 * Add fix for Debian bug #374038 - Make it clear that shutdown -c can
103 only cancel a waiting shutdown, not an active one.
104 * Add note to pidof manual page about the use of readlink(2). Patch by
105 Bill Nottingham and Fedora.
106 * Add PAM patch contrib/notify-pam-dead.patch based on Debian bug
107 #68621, which will add PAM support for programs spawned by init on
108 the console like sulogin. Based on patch by Topi Miettinen. This
109 patch is not applied by default yet while we review its
110 usefullness. It is only helpful for session handling, as sulogin
111 do not use and will not use a PAM conv() function. The current
112 sulogin is able to handle DES as well as MD5, SHA, and Blowfish
113 encrypted passwords due using getpwnam(3).
114 * Move utmp/wtmp before the execvp() in spawn() to be sure to
115 use the correct pid even on a controlling tty
116 * Remaining problem is that the pid of the second fork() for
117 getting a controlling tty isn't that reported by spawn()
118 * Re-enable writting utmp/wtmp for boot scripts
119 * Extend sulogin to support additional encryption algorithms
120 * Re-enable maintenance message of sulogin
121 * Enable the sulogin fallback password check to handle MD5, SHA, and
122 Blowfish encrypted passwords in case of getpwnam(3) fails.
123 * sulogin picking the SELinux context was broken. Patch by Daniel Walsh

155 re-exec. Patch from RedHat.
156 * Correct init to avoid race condition when starting programs during
157 boot. Patch from SuSe.
158 * Allow 'telinit u' in runlevels 0 and 6. Patch from Thomas Hood.
159 * Change install rules to make pidof an absolute symlink. Patch from
160 Thomas Hood.
161 * Improve error message from init if fork() fail. Patch found in Suse.
162 * Add support for SE Linux capability handling. Patch from Manoj
163 Srivastava, adjusted to avoid aborting if SE policy was loaded in
164 the initrd with patch from Bill Nottingham and Fedora.
165 * Add -c option to pidof for only matching processes with the same
166 process root. Ignore -c when not running as root. Patch from
167 Thomas Woerner and Fedora.
168 * Adjust init to terminate argv0 with one 0 rather than two so that
169 process name can be one character longer. Patch by Kir Kolyshkin.
170 * Make sure bootlogd exit with non-error exit code when forking of
171 the child successfully.
172 * Add bootlogd option -s to make it possible to control the use of
173 fdatasync(). Patch from Thomas Hood.
174 * Add bootlogd option -c to tell it to create the log file if it does
175 not exist. Patch from Thomas Hood.
176 * Let bootlogd also look at ttyB* devices to work on HPPA. Patch
177 from Thomas Hood.

179 value is usable on re-exec. Patch from Thomas Hood.
180 * Add usleep in killall5 after killing processes, to force the kernel
181 to reschedule. Patch from SuSe.
182 * Modify pidof to not print empty line if no pid was found.

191 string lengths. Patch from SuSe.
192 * Change wall to make halt include hostname in output.
193 * Change killall to avoid killing init by mistake. Patch from SuSe.
194 * Change killall5 to use the exit value to report if it found any
195 processes to kill. Patch from Debian.

198 Ubuntu.
199 * Add references between killall5 and pidof manual pages. Patch from Debian.
200 * Modify killall to work better with user space file system, by
201 changing cwd to /proc when stopping and killing processes, and
202 avoiding stat() when the value isn't used. Also, lock process
203 pages in memory to avoid paging when user processes are stopped.
204 Patch from Debian and Goswin von Brederlow with changes by Kel
205 Modderman.
206 * Change shutdown to only accept flags -H and -P with the -h flag,

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

249 * Fix init.c::spawn(). The "f" variable was used both as file descriptor
250 and waitpid(2) return code. In certain circumstances, this leads to
251 TIOCSCTTY with wrong file descriptor (Vladimir N. Oleynik).

436 re_exec fails.

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

529 * Fixed dowall.c not to exit when getpwuid() fails and uid == 0.
530 * Fixed init panic'ing on empty lines in /etc/inittab
531 * Changed default PATH to include /usr/local/sbin
532 * Set /dev/console as controlling terminal for sysinit,bootwait,wait,powerwait
533 This allows using ^C to interrupt some parts of eg the boot process.

535 /var/log and /etc itself.

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

692
693 2.4g 15-May-93

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

715 - This version is stable enough to post.
716
717 2.2 02-Mar-93
718 - Made wait()'s asynchronous
719 - Changed whole thing to one big state machine
720 - Now using 'pseudo levels' # & * for SYSINIT & BOOT
721 - Added a new type of 'action', called leave. This
722 process will be executed when the system goes from a
723 runlevel specified in it's runlevel field to a
724 level that's not. Nice to bring down NFS and the like.
725
726 2.1 28-Jan-93
727 - Fixed a bug with 'boot' and 'once'.
728 - Check 'initdefault' for validity.
729 - Reckognizes "single" as command line argument.
730 - Retries execvp with 'sh -c exec ..' if command
731 is a shell script. (shouldn't execvp do this?)
732 - Added patches to use syslog if defined.
733
734 2.0 08-Dec-92
735 - Rewrote the code totally, so started with a new
736 version number.
737 - Dropped Minix support, this code now is Linux - specific.
738 - With TEST switch on, this init & telinit can
739 run standalone for test purposes.
740
741 1.3, 05-Jul-92
742 - Got a 386, so installed Linux. Added 'soft' reboot
743 to be default under linux. Fixed some typos.
744
745 1.2, 16-Jun-92
746 - Bugreport from Michael Haardt ; removed deadlock
747 and added 'waitpid' instead of 'wait' for SYSV.
748
749 1.1, 30-Apr-92
750 - Read manual wrong: there is no 'action' field called
751 process, but all entries are of type process. Every
752 'process' get exec'ed by /bin/sh -c 'exec command'.
753 - Rapidly respawning processes are caught in the act.
754 - _SYSV support is really Linux support,
755 done by poe@daimi.aau.dk on 25-Mar-92.
756
757 1.0, 01-Feb-92
758 - Initial version, very primitive for the Minix
759 operating system. Required some mods. to the
760 kernel.
761
