11 * Remove man-db tag for encoding for canonical man
12 * Sulogin: try to detect the real device(s) used for the system console
13 /dev/console if but only if /dev/console is used. On Linux this can
14 be more than one device, e.g. a serial line as well as a virtual
15 console as well as a simple printer.
16 * Fix counting message lines in wall. Patch from Petr Lautrbach.
17 * Fix bad printf conversion specifier in wall. Patch from S├ębastien Luttringer.

19 * Add code to detect the system consoles with the help of the
20 new /proc/consoles files of linux kernel 2.6.38+
21 * Try to make utmpdump IPv6 valid, change based on suggestion from
22 Navdeep Bhatia (see local bug #32429)
23 * Fix signal and alarm handling based on the patch from Florent Viard.
24 (was local bug #32304)
25 * Add fix for Redhat bug #573346: last incorrectly displays IPv6
26 addresses (was local bug #29497)
27 * Correct fix for Debian bug #547073: use IUTF8 flag if defined
28 and if already set to make sure the utf-8 flag is not cleared
29 from the tty. Patch from Samuel Thibault.
30 * Include limits.h in killall.c to enforce definition of PATH_MAX
31 * Fix sysvinit bug #29758 Linker invocation should not contain
32 headers. Change based on patch from Elias Pipping.
33 * Add fix for Debian bug #580272: use return value 1 of
34 is_selinux_enabled() to determine if SELinux is enabled,
35 otherwise initialize SELinux and load the policy. Patch from
36 Petter Reinholdtsen.
37 * Make quotes visible in example of the manual page of fstab-decode
38 * Sulogin: enforce reconnection of stdin/stdout/stderr if a device
39 was specified.
40 * Sulogin: if zero is read at reading the passwd guess it's done.
41 * Sulogin: respect byte order that is do not mix chars and ints
42 * Shutdown: use PATH_DEFAULT as suggested by Paul Arthur in local bug #36101
43 * Killall5/pidof: handle strange names of executables (local bug #36252)
44 * Sulogin: be aware the crypt(3) may fail (local bug #36313)

46 [ Petter Reinholdtsen ]
47 * Next release will be 2.89dsf.
48 * Add #ifdef in bootlogd.c to avoid gcc warnings about unused
49 variable on non-linux platforms.
50 * Only set the VSWTC field for termios in init if it is available,
51 to get the source building on FreeBSD.

53 kernel 3.0 and above
54 * Improve message printed when signaling processes to stop.
55 Patch from Matias A. Fonzo at the dragora project.
56 * Rename internal functions warn() and shutdown() in the shutdown
57 binary to avoid surprising dynamic library name resolution
58 conflict with NSS modules. Patch from Richard Tollerton.
59 * Try harder to find libcrypt.*, even if there is no static library
60 available. Also look in /usr/lib/*/ for the library, to handle
61 Debian multiarch systems. Based on patch from Andrew Gregory.
62 * Adjust included headers to be compatible with the musl C
63 library. Patch from Matias A. Fonzo and Dragora.

90 correct device, to handle terminal devices for example in /dev/pty/.
91 Patch from Debian.
92 * Make sure bootlogd findpty() returns an error value when it fails to
93 find a usable pty. Patch from Rob Leslie via Debian.
94 * Make sure bootlogd fflush() every line, even if asked not to flush
95 to disk using fdatasync(). Patch from Scott Gifford via Debian.
96 * Add compatibility code to handle old path "/etc/powerstatus" for a
97 while.
98 * Incude definition for MNT_DETACH which is missing in older GNU libc
99 headers.
100 * Do not strip binaries before installing them, to make it easier to
101 get binaries with debug information installed.
102
103 [ Werner Fink ]
104 * Add the comment from Andrea Arcangeli about the correct
105 place of setting the default childhandler within spawn().
106 * Make sure that newline is printed out for last(1) even
107 if an utmp record entry is truncated.
108 * Check if utmp not only exists but also is writable and delay
109 writing out of the utmp runlevel record if utmp is not writable.
110 * Be able to find libcrypt also on 64 bit based architectures.
111 * Add option -w to the last command to display the full user and
112 domain names in the output. Patch from Petr Lautrbach.
113 * Add a manual page for utmpdump as this tool is sometimes
114 very useful even if not intended for normal use.
115 * Use paths.h macros for wall
116 * Change path "/etc/powerstatus" to "/var/run/powerstatus"
117 * Detected also removable block devices at halt/reboot to be able
118 to flush data and send them the ATA standby command. This should
119 avoid data loss on USB sticks and other removable block devices.
120 * Flush block devices on halt/reboot if not done by the kernel.
121 * Set SHELL to /bin/sh in the environmant of shutdown.
122 * Retry to write out shutdown messages if interrupted.
123 * pidof/killall5 - make omit pid list a dynamic one.
124 * pidof - provide '-n' to skip stat(2) syscall on network based FS.
125 * init - avoid compiler warnings
126 * init - initialize console by using the macros from ttydefaults.h
127 * init - add the possiblity to ignore further interrupts from keyboard
128 * init - add the possiblity to set sane terminal line settings
129 * sulogin - add the possibility to reset the terminal io
130 * Fix some minor problems
131 * init - enable is_selinux_enabled() to detect selinuxfs
132 * Add fix for Debian bug #536574 -- Can be enabled by -DACCTON_OFF
133 * Add helper program fstab-decode to make it easier to handle
134 /etc/mtab content. Patch by Miloslav Trmac and Fedora.
135 * Add fix for Debian bug #335023 - Make sure TERM is set on FreeBSD.
136 * Add fix for Debian bug #374038 - Make it clear that shutdown -c can
137 only cancel a waiting shutdown, not an active one.
138 * Add note to pidof manual page about the use of readlink(2). Patch by
139 Bill Nottingham and Fedora.
140 * Add PAM patch contrib/notify-pam-dead.patch based on Debian bug
141 #68621, which will add PAM support for programs spawned by init on
142 the console like sulogin. Based on patch by Topi Miettinen. This
143 patch is not applied by default yet while we review its
144 usefullness. It is only helpful for session handling, as sulogin
145 do not use and will not use a PAM conv() function. The current
146 sulogin is able to handle DES as well as MD5, SHA, and Blowfish
147 encrypted passwords due using getpwnam(3).
148 * Move utmp/wtmp before the execvp() in spawn() to be sure to
149 use the correct pid even on a controlling tty
150 * Remaining problem is that the pid of the second fork() for
151 getting a controlling tty isn't that reported by spawn()
152 * Re-enable writting utmp/wtmp for boot scripts
153 * Extend sulogin to support additional encryption algorithms
154 * Re-enable maintenance message of sulogin
155 * Enable the sulogin fallback password check to handle MD5, SHA, and
156 Blowfish encrypted passwords in case of getpwnam(3) fails.
157 * sulogin picking the SELinux context was broken. Patch by Daniel Walsh

166 * Update address of FSF in the COPYRIGHT file.
167 * Document in halt(8) that -n might not disable all syncing.
168 Patch by Bill Nottingham and Fedora
169 * Adjust output from "last -x". In reboot lines, print endpoint
170 of uptime too. In shutdown lines print downtimes rather than
171 the time between downs. Fix typo in string compare in last.c.
172 Patch by Thomas Hood.
173 * Improve handling of IPv6 addresses in last. Patch from Fedora.
174 * Document last options in usage information, previously only
175 mentioned in the manual page.

177 of the short form provided by default. Patch from Olaf Dabrunz
178 and SuSe.
179 * Adjust build rules to make sure the installed binaries
180 are stripped.
181 * Increase the compiler warning level when building.
182 * Fix utmp/wtmp updating on 64-bit platforms. Patch by Bill

185 Patch from Christian 'Dr. Disk' Hechelmann and Fedora.
186 * Make sure to use execle and no execl when passing environment to
187 the new process. Patch from RedHat.
188 * Correct init to make sure the waiting status is preserved across
189 re-exec. Patch from RedHat.
190 * Correct init to avoid race condition when starting programs during
191 boot. Patch from SuSe.

194 Thomas Hood.
195 * Improve error message from init if fork() fail. Patch found in Suse.
196 * Add support for SE Linux capability handling. Patch from Manoj
197 Srivastava, adjusted to avoid aborting if SE policy was loaded in
198 the initrd with patch from Bill Nottingham and Fedora.
199 * Add -c option to pidof for only matching processes with the same
200 process root. Ignore -c when not running as root. Patch from
201 Thomas Woerner and Fedora.
202 * Adjust init to terminate argv0 with one 0 rather than two so that
203 process name can be one character longer. Patch by Kir Kolyshkin.
204 * Make sure bootlogd exit with non-error exit code when forking of
205 the child successfully.
206 * Add bootlogd option -s to make it possible to control the use of

208 * Add bootlogd option -c to tell it to create the log file if it does
209 not exist. Patch from Thomas Hood.
210 * Let bootlogd also look at ttyB* devices to work on HPPA. Patch

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

225 string lengths. Patch from SuSe.
226 * Change wall to make halt include hostname in output.
227 * Change killall to avoid killing init by mistake. Patch from SuSe.
228 * Change killall5 to use the exit value to report if it found any
229 processes to kill. Patch from Debian.

232 Ubuntu.
233 * Add references between killall5 and pidof manual pages. Patch from Debian.
234 * Modify killall to work better with user space file system, by
235 changing cwd to /proc when stopping and killing processes, and
236 avoiding stat() when the value isn't used. Also, lock process
237 pages in memory to avoid paging when user processes are stopped.
238 Patch from Debian and Goswin von Brederlow with changes by Kel
239 Modderman.
240 * Change shutdown to only accept flags -H and -P with the -h flag,

250
251 * Fixed up bootlogd to read /proc/cmdline. Also keep an internal
252 linebuffer to process \r, \t and ^H. It is becoming useable.
253 * Applied trivial OWL patches
254 * Block signals in syslog(), since syslog() is not re-entrant
255 (James Olin Oden <joden@malachi.lee.k12.nc.us>, redhat bug #97534)
256 * Minor adjustements so that sysvinit compiles on the Hurd
257 * killall5 now skips kernel threads
258 * Inittab entries with both 'S' and other runlevels were broken.
259 Fix by Bryan Kadzban <bryan@kadzban.is-a-geek.net>
260 * Changed initreq.h to be more flexible and forwards-compatible.
261 * You can now through /dev/initctl set environment variables in
262 init that will be inherited by its children. For now, only
263 variables prefixed with INIT_ can be set and the maximum is
264 16 variables. There's also a length limit due to the size
265 of struct init_request, so it should be safe from abuse.
266 * Option -P and -H to shutdown set INIT_HALT=POWERDOWN and
267 INIT_HALT=HALT as environment variables as described above
268 * Add "mountpoint" utility.
269 * Slightly better algorithm in killall5.c:pidof()
270 * Added some patches from fedora-core (halt-usage, last -t,
271 sulogin-message, user-console)

277 * Add IPv6 support in last(1)
278 * Sulogin: even if the root password is empty, ask for a password-
279 otherwise there is no way to set a timeout.
280 * Removed support for ioctl.save.
281 * Turned of support for /etc/initrunlvl and /var/run/initrunlvl
282 * Fixed warts in dowall.c ("Dmitry V. Levin" <ldv@altlinux.org>)
283 * Fix init.c::spawn(). The "f" variable was used both as file descriptor
284 and waitpid(2) return code. In certain circumstances, this leads to
285 TIOCSCTTY with wrong file descriptor (Vladimir N. Oleynik).
286 * Fix fd leak in sulogin (Dmitry V. Levin).
287 * More error checking in all wait() calling code (Dmitry V. Levin).
288 * Fix argv[] initialization in spawn() (Dmitry V. Levin).
289 * Change strncpy to strncat in most places (Dmitry V. Levin).

298 'behave as system init even if you're not PID#1'. Useful for

452 * Add -o option to last to process libc5 utmp files.
453 * Buffer overflow fixed in init.c (not very serious; only exploitable
454 by root). Thanks to Chris Evans <chris@ferret.lmh.ox.ac.uk>

458 sysvinit (2.74-1) unstable; urgency=low
459
460 * Should compile with glibc 1.99 :)
461 * Change behaviour of reboot(1) and halt(1) so that the default when
462 the runlevel can't be determined is to call shutdown.
463 * Added re-exec patch from Al Viro (21 Feb 1998):
464 'U' flag added to telinit. It forces init to re-exec itself
465 (passing its state through exec, certainly).
466 May be useful for smoother (heh) upgrades.
467 24 Feb 1998, AV:
468 did_boot made global and added to state - thanks, Miquel.
469 Yet another file descriptors leak - close state pipe if
470 re_exec fails.

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

507 * Only say "no more processes left in runlevel x" once
508 * Fix race condition with SIGCHLD in spawn()
509 (thanks to Alon Ziv <alonz@CS.Technion.AC.IL>)
510 * Compress all manpages (missed 2)
511 * Compiled for libc6
512 * Added poweroff patch by Roderich Schupp <rsch@ExperTeam.de>

563 * Fixed dowall.c not to exit when getpwuid() fails and uid == 0.
564 * Fixed init panic'ing on empty lines in /etc/inittab
565 * Changed default PATH to include /usr/local/sbin
566 * Set /dev/console as controlling terminal for sysinit,bootwait,wait,powerwait
567 This allows using ^C to interrupt some parts of eg the boot process.
568 * Remove old symlink in /var/log/initlvl; let init check both
569 /var/log and /etc itself.

708
709 2.50 14-Feb-1994
710 - Ignores unknown command line arguments.
711 - Modelled more after the "real" sysVinit
712 - Lots of changes all over the place.
713 (like showing runlevel in "ps" listing, logging
714 runlevel into utmp file etc)
715 - now using "reliable" signals instead of V7 style.
716 - Updated all scripts. Examples are in two directories:
717 etc (normal) and etc-sysv (sysv style scripts).
718 - runlevel 0 = halt, 1 = single user, 6 = reboot.
719 - added support for serial console.
720 - updated Propaganda, manpages.
721 - added shutdown access control.
722
723 2.4 24-May-93

725 SysVinit-2.4.tar.z.
726
727 2.4g 15-May-93
728 - Changed init to really catch SIGPWR 'cause we
729 hooked up an UPS to the Linux machine. The
730 keyword for catching the TreeFingerSalute is
731 now "ctrlaltdel" instead of "power{wait,fail}".
732
733 2.4a 22-Apr-93
734 - Fixed last to reckognize BSD style wtmp logging.
735 - Changed init to write wtmp records that are
736 SysV compliant but are also reckognized by the
737 BSD last. Added a '+' option to the 'process'
738 field of inittab, for getties that want to do
739 their own utmp/wtmp housekeeping (kludge!).
740 - Now accepts a runlevel on the command line,
741 and reckognizes the 'auto' argument. (Sets the
742 environment variable AUTOBOOT to YES)
743
744 2.2.3 24-Mar-93
745 - Ripped out the 'leave' action. To difficult, and
746 unneeded.
747 - Going single user now kills _all_ processes.

749 - This version is stable enough to post.
750
751 2.2 02-Mar-93
752 - Made wait()'s asynchronous
753 - Changed whole thing to one big state machine
754 - Now using 'pseudo levels' # & * for SYSINIT & BOOT
755 - Added a new type of 'action', called leave. This
756 process will be executed when the system goes from a
757 runlevel specified in it's runlevel field to a
758 level that's not. Nice to bring down NFS and the like.
759
760 2.1 28-Jan-93
761 - Fixed a bug with 'boot' and 'once'.
762 - Check 'initdefault' for validity.
763 - Reckognizes "single" as command line argument.
764 - Retries execvp with 'sh -c exec ..' if command
765 is a shell script. (shouldn't execvp do this?)
766 - Added patches to use syslog if defined.
767
768 2.0 08-Dec-92
769 - Rewrote the code totally, so started with a new
770 version number.
771 - Dropped Minix support, this code now is Linux - specific.
772 - With TEST switch on, this init & telinit can
773 run standalone for test purposes.
774
775 1.3, 05-Jul-92
776 - Got a 386, so installed Linux. Added 'soft' reboot
777 to be default under linux. Fixed some typos.
778
779 1.2, 16-Jun-92
780 - Bugreport from Michael Haardt ; removed deadlock
781 and added 'waitpid' instead of 'wait' for SYSV.
782
783 1.1, 30-Apr-92
784 - Read manual wrong: there is no 'action' field called
785 process, but all entries are of type process. Every
786 'process' get exec'ed by /bin/sh -c 'exec command'.
787 - Rapidly respawning processes are caught in the act.
788 - _SYSV support is really Linux support,
789 done by poe@daimi.aau.dk on 25-Mar-92.
790
791 1.0, 01-Feb-92
792 - Initial version, very primitive for the Minix
793 operating system. Required some mods. to the
794 kernel.
795
