8 [ Petter Reinholdtsen ]
9 * Mention new home on Savannah in README.
10 * Revert change from Fedora/RedHat where the now obsolete command
11 INIT_CMD_CHANGECONS was introduced. Based on feedback and patch
12 from Bill Nottingham.
13 * Adjust makefile to make sure the install directories are created
14 before files are copied into them.
15 * Simplify build rules, based on patch from Mike Frysinger and Gentoo.
16 * Fix minor bug in optimizing of argument parsing. Based on
17 report from jakemus on freshmeat.
18 * Add casts to get rid of compiler warning about signed/unsigned issues.
19 * Change tty handling in init to make sure the UTF-8 flag is not cleared
20 on boot. Patch from Samuel Thibault.
21 * Add Makefile in toplevel directory.
22 * Print usage information when shutdown is used by non-root user.
23 Patch from Mike Frysinger and Gentoo.
24 * Sync shutdown manual page and usage information. Patch from Mike
25 Frysinger and Gentoo.
26 * Fix race condition in utmp writing. Patch from Gil Kloepfer via
27 Mike Frysinger and Gentoo.
28 * Rewrite findtty() in bootlogd to recursively search /dev/ for the
29 correct device, to handle terminal devices for example in /dev/pty/.
30 Patch from Debian.
31 * Make sure bootlogd findpty() returns an error value when it fails to
32 find a usable pty. Patch from Rob Leslie via Debian.
33 * Make sure bootlogd fflush() every line, even if asked not to flush
34 to disk using fdatasync(). Patch from Scott Gifford via Debian.
35 * Add compatibility code to handle old path "/etc/powerstatus" for a
36 while.
37 * Incude definition for MNT_DETACH which is missing in older GNU libc
38 headers.
39 * Do not strip binaries before installing them, to make it easier to
40 get binaries with debug information installed.

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

136 Srivastava, adjusted to avoid aborting if SE policy was loaded in
137 the initrd with patch from Bill Nottingham and Fedora.
138 * Add -c option to pidof for only matching processes with the same
139 process root. Ignore -c when not running as root. Patch from
140 Thomas Woerner and Fedora.
141 * Adjust init to terminate argv0 with one 0 rather than two so that

164 string lengths. Patch from SuSe.
165 * Change wall to make halt include hostname in output.
166 * Change killall to avoid killing init by mistake. Patch from SuSe.
167 * Change killall5 to use the exit value to report if it found any
168 processes to kill. Patch from Debian.

172 * Add references between killall5 and pidof manual pages. Patch from Debian.
173 * Modify killall to work better with user space file system, by
174 changing cwd to /proc when stopping and killing processes, and
175 avoiding stat() when the value isn't used. Also, lock process
176 pages in memory to avoid paging when user processes are stopped.
177 Patch from Debian and Goswin von Brederlow with changes by Kel
178 Modderman.

189
190 * Fixed up bootlogd to read /proc/cmdline. Also keep an internal
191 linebuffer to process \r, \t and ^H. It is becoming useable.
192 * Applied trivial OWL patches
193 * Block signals in syslog(), since syslog() is not re-entrant
194 (James Olin Oden <joden@malachi.lee.k12.nc.us>, redhat bug #97534)
195 * Minor adjustements so that sysvinit compiles on the Hurd
196 * killall5 now skips kernel threads
197 * Inittab entries with both 'S' and other runlevels were broken.
198 Fix by Bryan Kadzban <bryan@kadzban.is-a-geek.net>
199 * Changed initreq.h to be more flexible and forwards-compatible.
200 * You can now through /dev/initctl set environment variables in
201 init that will be inherited by its children. For now, only
202 variables prefixed with INIT_ can be set and the maximum is
203 16 variables. There's also a length limit due to the size
204 of struct init_request, so it should be safe from abuse.
205 * Option -P and -H to shutdown set INIT_HALT=POWERDOWN and
206 INIT_HALT=HALT as environment variables as described above
207 * Add "mountpoint" utility.
208 * Slightly better algorithm in killall5.c:pidof()
209 * Added some patches from fedora-core (halt-usage, last -t,
210 sulogin-message, user-console)

216 * Add IPv6 support in last(1)
217 * Sulogin: even if the root password is empty, ask for a password-
218 otherwise there is no way to set a timeout.
219 * Removed support for ioctl.save.
220 * Turned of support for /etc/initrunlvl and /var/run/initrunlvl
221 * Fixed warts in dowall.c ("Dmitry V. Levin" <ldv@altlinux.org>)
222 * Fix init.c::spawn(). The "f" variable was used both as file descriptor
223 and waitpid(2) return code. In certain circumstances, this leads to
224 TIOCSCTTY with wrong file descriptor (Vladimir N. Oleynik).

402 * Added re-exec patch from Al Viro (21 Feb 1998):
403 'U' flag added to telinit. It forces init to re-exec itself
404 (passing its state through exec, certainly).
405 May be useful for smoother (heh) upgrades.

499 * Skipped 2.65. A development 2.65 got out by accident and is apparently
500 being used..
501 * Also compiles and runs with GNU libc (and on the Alpha)
502 * Fixed dowall.c not to exit when getpwuid() fails and uid == 0.
503 * Fixed init panic'ing on empty lines in /etc/inittab
504 * Changed default PATH to include /usr/local/sbin
505 * Set /dev/console as controlling terminal for sysinit,bootwait,wait,powerwait
506 This allows using ^C to interrupt some parts of eg the boot process.
507 * Remove old symlink in /var/log/initlvl; let init check both
508 /var/log and /etc itself.

655 - Updated all scripts. Examples are in two directories:
656 etc (normal) and etc-sysv (sysv style scripts).

664 SysVinit-2.4.tar.z.
665
666 2.4g 15-May-93

668 hooked up an UPS to the Linux machine. The
669 keyword for catching the TreeFingerSalute is
670 now "ctrlaltdel" instead of "power{wait,fail}".
671
672 2.4a 22-Apr-93
673 - Fixed last to reckognize BSD style wtmp logging.
674 - Changed init to write wtmp records that are
675 SysV compliant but are also reckognized by the
676 BSD last. Added a '+' option to the 'process'
677 field of inittab, for getties that want to do
678 their own utmp/wtmp housekeeping (kludge!).
679 - Now accepts a runlevel on the command line,
680 and reckognizes the 'auto' argument. (Sets the
681 environment variable AUTOBOOT to YES)
682
683 2.2.3 24-Mar-93
684 - Ripped out the 'leave' action. To difficult, and
685 unneeded.

689
690 2.2 02-Mar-93
691 - Made wait()'s asynchronous
692 - Changed whole thing to one big state machine
693 - Now using 'pseudo levels' # & * for SYSINIT & BOOT
694 - Added a new type of 'action', called leave. This
695 process will be executed when the system goes from a
696 runlevel specified in it's runlevel field to a
697 level that's not. Nice to bring down NFS and the like.
698
699 2.1 28-Jan-93
700 - Fixed a bug with 'boot' and 'once'.
701 - Check 'initdefault' for validity.
702 - Reckognizes "single" as command line argument.
703 - Retries execvp with 'sh -c exec ..' if command
704 is a shell script. (shouldn't execvp do this?)
705 - Added patches to use syslog if defined.
706
707 2.0 08-Dec-92
708 - Rewrote the code totally, so started with a new
709 version number.

711 - With TEST switch on, this init & telinit can
712 run standalone for test purposes.
713
714 1.3, 05-Jul-92
715 - Got a 386, so installed Linux. Added 'soft' reboot
716 to be default under linux. Fixed some typos.
717
718 1.2, 16-Jun-92
719 - Bugreport from Michael Haardt ; removed deadlock
720 and added 'waitpid' instead of 'wait' for SYSV.
721
722 1.1, 30-Apr-92
723 - Read manual wrong: there is no 'action' field called
724 process, but all entries are of type process. Every
725 'process' get exec'ed by /bin/sh -c 'exec command'.
726 - Rapidly respawning processes are caught in the act.
727 - _SYSV support is really Linux support,
728 done by poe@daimi.aau.dk on 25-Mar-92.
729
730 1.0, 01-Feb-92
731 - Initial version, very primitive for the Minix
732 operating system. Required some mods. to the
733 kernel.
