17 * Next release will be 2.89dsf.
18 * Add #ifdef in bootlogd.c to avoid gcc warnings about unused
19 variable on non-linux platforms.

33 before files are copied into them.
34 * Simplify build rules, based on patch from Mike Frysinger and Gentoo.
35 * Fix minor bug in optimizing of argument parsing. Based on
36 report from jakemus on freshmeat.

38 * Change tty handling in init to make sure the UTF-8 flag is not cleared
39 on boot. Patch from Samuel Thibault.

46 Mike Frysinger and Gentoo.
47 * Rewrite findtty() in bootlogd to recursively search /dev/ for the
48 correct device, to handle terminal devices for example in /dev/pty/.
49 Patch from Debian.
50 * Make sure bootlogd findpty() returns an error value when it fails to
51 find a usable pty. Patch from Rob Leslie via Debian.
52 * Make sure bootlogd fflush() every line, even if asked not to flush
53 to disk using fdatasync(). Patch from Scott Gifford via Debian.
54 * Add compatibility code to handle old path "/etc/powerstatus" for a
55 while.
56 * Incude definition for MNT_DETACH which is missing in older GNU libc
57 headers.

59 get binaries with debug information installed.
60
61 [ Werner Fink ]
62 * Add the comment from Andrea Arcangeli about the correct
63 place of setting the default childhandler within spawn().
64 * Make sure that newline is printed out for last(1) even
65 if an utmp record entry is truncated.
66 * Check if utmp not only exists but also is writable and delay
67 writing out of the utmp runlevel record if utmp is not writable.
68 * Be able to find libcrypt also on 64 bit based architectures.
69 * Add option -w to the last command to display the full user and
70 domain names in the output. Patch from Petr Lautrbach.
71 * Add a manual page for utmpdump as this tool is sometimes
72 very useful even if not intended for normal use.
73 * Use paths.h macros for wall
74 * Change path "/etc/powerstatus" to "/var/run/powerstatus"
75 * Detected also removable block devices at halt/reboot to be able
76 to flush data and send them the ATA standby command. This should
77 avoid data loss on USB sticks and other removable block devices.
78 * Flush block devices on halt/reboot if not done by the kernel.
79 * Set SHELL to /bin/sh in the environmant of shutdown.
80 * Retry to write out shutdown messages if interrupted.
81 * pidof/killall5 - make omit pid list a dynamic one.
82 * pidof - provide '-n' to skip stat(2) syscall on network based FS.
83 * init - avoid compiler warnings
84 * init - initialize console by using the macros from ttydefaults.h
85 * init - add the possiblity to ignore further interrupts from keyboard
86 * init - add the possiblity to set sane terminal line settings
87 * sulogin - add the possibility to reset the terminal io
88 * Fix some minor problems
89 * init - enable is_selinux_enabled() to detect selinuxfs
90 * Add fix for Debian bug #536574 -- Can be enabled by -DACCTON_OFF
91 * Add helper program fstab-decode to make it easier to handle
92 /etc/mtab content. Patch by Miloslav Trmac and Fedora.
93 * Add fix for Debian bug #335023 - Make sure TERM is set on FreeBSD.
94 * Add fix for Debian bug #374038 - Make it clear that shutdown -c can
95 only cancel a waiting shutdown, not an active one.
96 * Add note to pidof manual page about the use of readlink(2). Patch by
97 Bill Nottingham and Fedora.
98 * Add PAM patch contrib/notify-pam-dead.patch based on Debian bug
99 #68621, which will add PAM support for programs spawned by init on
100 the console like sulogin. Based on patch by Topi Miettinen. This
101 patch is not applied by default yet while we review its
102 usefullness. It is only helpful for session handling, as sulogin
103 do not use and will not use a PAM conv() function. The current
104 sulogin is able to handle DES as well as MD5, SHA, and Blowfish
105 encrypted passwords due using getpwnam(3).
106 * Move utmp/wtmp before the execvp() in spawn() to be sure to
107 use the correct pid even on a controlling tty
108 * Remaining problem is that the pid of the second fork() for
109 getting a controlling tty isn't that reported by spawn()
110 * Re-enable writting utmp/wtmp for boot scripts
111 * Extend sulogin to support additional encryption algorithms
112 * Re-enable maintenance message of sulogin
113 * Enable the sulogin fallback password check to handle MD5, SHA, and
114 Blowfish encrypted passwords in case of getpwnam(3) fails.
115 * sulogin picking the SELinux context was broken. Patch by Daniel Walsh

123 * Document -e and -t options for telinit in init(8).
124 * Update address of FSF in the COPYRIGHT file.
125 * Document in halt(8) that -n might not disable all syncing.
126 Patch by Bill Nottingham and Fedora

128 of uptime too. In shutdown lines print downtimes rather than
129 the time between downs. Fix typo in string compare in last.c.
130 Patch by Thomas Hood.
131 * Improve handling of IPv6 addresses in last. Patch from Fedora.
132 * Document last options in usage information, previously only
133 mentioned in the manual page.

135 of the short form provided by default. Patch from Olaf Dabrunz
136 and SuSe.
137 * Adjust build rules to make sure the installed binaries
138 are stripped.
139 * Increase the compiler warning level when building.
140 * Fix utmp/wtmp updating on 64-bit platforms. Patch by Bill
141 Nottingham and Fedora.

143 Patch from Christian 'Dr. Disk' Hechelmann and Fedora.
144 * Make sure to use execle and no execl when passing environment to
145 the new process. Patch from RedHat.
146 * Correct init to make sure the waiting status is preserved across
147 re-exec. Patch from RedHat.
148 * Correct init to avoid race condition when starting programs during
149 boot. Patch from SuSe.
150 * Allow 'telinit u' in runlevels 0 and 6. Patch from Thomas Hood.
151 * Change install rules to make pidof an absolute symlink. Patch from
152 Thomas Hood.
153 * Improve error message from init if fork() fail. Patch found in Suse.
154 * Add support for SE Linux capability handling. Patch from Manoj
155 Srivastava, adjusted to avoid aborting if SE policy was loaded in
156 the initrd with patch from Bill Nottingham and Fedora.
157 * Add -c option to pidof for only matching processes with the same
158 process root. Ignore -c when not running as root. Patch from
159 Thomas Woerner and Fedora.
160 * Adjust init to terminate argv0 with one 0 rather than two so that
161 process name can be one character longer. Patch by Kir Kolyshkin.
162 * Make sure bootlogd exit with non-error exit code when forking of
163 the child successfully.
164 * Add bootlogd option -s to make it possible to control the use of
165 fdatasync(). Patch from Thomas Hood.
166 * Add bootlogd option -c to tell it to create the log file if it does
167 not exist. Patch from Thomas Hood.
168 * Let bootlogd also look at ttyB* devices to work on HPPA. Patch
169 from Thomas Hood.
170 * Change init to use setenv() instead of putenv, make sure the PATH
171 value is usable on re-exec. Patch from Thomas Hood.
172 * Add usleep in killall5 after killing processes, to force the kernel
173 to reschedule. Patch from SuSe.
174 * Modify pidof to not print empty line if no pid was found.
175 * Modify init and sulogin to fix emergency mode's tty, making sure ^C
176 and ^Z work when booting with 'emergency' kernel option. Patch from
177 Samuel Thibault.
178 * Modify init to allow some time for failed opens to resolve themselves.
179 Patch from Bill Nottingham and Fedora.
180 * Modify init to shut down IDE, SCSI and SATA disks properly. Patches
181 from Sebastian Reichelt, Werner Fink and SuSe.
182 * Modify wall to use UT_LINESIZE from <utmp.h> instead of hardcoded
183 string lengths. Patch from SuSe.
184 * Change wall to make halt include hostname in output.
185 * Change killall to avoid killing init by mistake. Patch from SuSe.
186 * Change killall5 to use the exit value to report if it found any
187 processes to kill. Patch from Debian.

189 some pids during shutdown. Based on patch from Colin Watson and
190 Ubuntu.
191 * Add references between killall5 and pidof manual pages. Patch from Debian.
192 * Modify killall to work better with user space file system, by
193 changing cwd to /proc when stopping and killing processes, and
194 avoiding stat() when the value isn't used. Also, lock process
195 pages in memory to avoid paging when user processes are stopped.
196 Patch from Debian and Goswin von Brederlow with changes by Kel
197 Modderman.
198 * Change shutdown to only accept flags -H and -P with the -h flag,
199 and document this requirement in the manual page.

208
209 * Fixed up bootlogd to read /proc/cmdline. Also keep an internal
210 linebuffer to process \r, \t and ^H. It is becoming useable.
211 * Applied trivial OWL patches
212 * Block signals in syslog(), since syslog() is not re-entrant
213 (James Olin Oden <joden@malachi.lee.k12.nc.us>, redhat bug #97534)
214 * Minor adjustements so that sysvinit compiles on the Hurd
215 * killall5 now skips kernel threads
216 * Inittab entries with both 'S' and other runlevels were broken.
217 Fix by Bryan Kadzban <bryan@kadzban.is-a-geek.net>
218 * Changed initreq.h to be more flexible and forwards-compatible.
219 * You can now through /dev/initctl set environment variables in
220 init that will be inherited by its children. For now, only
221 variables prefixed with INIT_ can be set and the maximum is
222 16 variables. There's also a length limit due to the size
223 of struct init_request, so it should be safe from abuse.
224 * Option -P and -H to shutdown set INIT_HALT=POWERDOWN and
225 INIT_HALT=HALT as environment variables as described above
226 * Add "mountpoint" utility.
227 * Slightly better algorithm in killall5.c:pidof()
228 * Added some patches from fedora-core (halt-usage, last -t,
229 sulogin-message, user-console)

234
235 * Add IPv6 support in last(1)
236 * Sulogin: even if the root password is empty, ask for a password-
237 otherwise there is no way to set a timeout.
238 * Removed support for ioctl.save.
239 * Turned of support for /etc/initrunlvl and /var/run/initrunlvl
240 * Fixed warts in dowall.c ("Dmitry V. Levin" <ldv@altlinux.org>)
241 * Fix init.c::spawn(). The "f" variable was used both as file descriptor
242 and waitpid(2) return code. In certain circumstances, this leads to
243 TIOCSCTTY with wrong file descriptor (Vladimir N. Oleynik).
244 * Fix fd leak in sulogin (Dmitry V. Levin).
245 * More error checking in all wait() calling code (Dmitry V. Levin).
246 * Fix argv[] initialization in spawn() (Dmitry V. Levin).
247 * Change strncpy to strncat in most places (Dmitry V. Levin).

253 * Don't use /etc/initlvl interface for telinit; only use /dev/initctl,

255 * Add -i/--init command line flag to init - this tells init
256 'behave as system init even if you're not PID#1'. Useful for
257 testing in chroot/jail type environments.

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

438 sysvinit (2.73-1) unstable; urgency=low
439
440 * Use siginterrupt, now that system calls are restarted by default.
441 Main symptom was that the sulogin timeout didn't work but there
442 might have been more hidden problems.
443 * Kill process immidiately if turned off in inittab
444 * Fixed sulogin check on tty arg.
445 * Use strerror() instead of sys_errlist
446 * wall now supports a '-n' option to suppress [most of] the banner.
447 Debian doesn't use sysvinit's wall, but apparently Redhat does.
448 * Add '-F' (forcefsck) option to shutdown
449 * Close and reopen /dev/initctl on SIGUSR1 (mainly for a /dev in ram)

521 * Fixed dowall.c not to exit when getpwuid() fails and uid == 0.
522 * Fixed init panic'ing on empty lines in /etc/inittab
523 * Changed default PATH to include /usr/local/sbin

527 /var/log and /etc itself.

671 (like showing runlevel in "ps" listing, logging
672 runlevel into utmp file etc)
673 - now using "reliable" signals instead of V7 style.
674 - Updated all scripts. Examples are in two directories:
675 etc (normal) and etc-sysv (sysv style scripts).

677 - added support for serial console.
678 - updated Propaganda, manpages.
679 - added shutdown access control.

683 SysVinit-2.4.tar.z.
684
685 2.4g 15-May-93
686 - Changed init to really catch SIGPWR 'cause we
687 hooked up an UPS to the Linux machine. The
688 keyword for catching the TreeFingerSalute is
689 now "ctrlaltdel" instead of "power{wait,fail}".
690
691 2.4a 22-Apr-93
692 - Fixed last to reckognize BSD style wtmp logging.
693 - Changed init to write wtmp records that are
694 SysV compliant but are also reckognized by the
695 BSD last. Added a '+' option to the 'process'
696 field of inittab, for getties that want to do
697 their own utmp/wtmp housekeeping (kludge!).
698 - Now accepts a runlevel on the command line,
699 and reckognizes the 'auto' argument. (Sets the
700 environment variable AUTOBOOT to YES)
701
702 2.2.3 24-Mar-93
703 - Ripped out the 'leave' action. To difficult, and
704 unneeded.
705 - Going single user now kills _all_ processes.

707 - This version is stable enough to post.
708
709 2.2 02-Mar-93
710 - Made wait()'s asynchronous
711 - Changed whole thing to one big state machine
712 - Now using 'pseudo levels' # & * for SYSINIT & BOOT
713 - Added a new type of 'action', called leave. This
714 process will be executed when the system goes from a
715 runlevel specified in it's runlevel field to a
716 level that's not. Nice to bring down NFS and the like.
717
718 2.1 28-Jan-93
719 - Fixed a bug with 'boot' and 'once'.
720 - Check 'initdefault' for validity.
721 - Reckognizes "single" as command line argument.
722 - Retries execvp with 'sh -c exec ..' if command
723 is a shell script. (shouldn't execvp do this?)
724 - Added patches to use syslog if defined.
725
726 2.0 08-Dec-92
727 - Rewrote the code totally, so started with a new
728 version number.
729 - Dropped Minix support, this code now is Linux - specific.
730 - With TEST switch on, this init & telinit can
731 run standalone for test purposes.
732
733 1.3, 05-Jul-92
734 - Got a 386, so installed Linux. Added 'soft' reboot
735 to be default under linux. Fixed some typos.
736
737 1.2, 16-Jun-92
738 - Bugreport from Michael Haardt ; removed deadlock
739 and added 'waitpid' instead of 'wait' for SYSV.
740
741 1.1, 30-Apr-92
742 - Read manual wrong: there is no 'action' field called
743 process, but all entries are of type process. Every
744 'process' get exec'ed by /bin/sh -c 'exec command'.
745 - Rapidly respawning processes are caught in the act.
746 - _SYSV support is really Linux support,
747 done by poe@daimi.aau.dk on 25-Mar-92.
748
749 1.0, 01-Feb-92
750 - Initial version, very primitive for the Minix
751 operating system. Required some mods. to the
752 kernel.
753
