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

123 Patch by Thomas Hood.
124 * Improve handling of IPv6 addresses in last. Patch from Fedora.
125 * Document last options in usage information, previously only
126 mentioned in the manual page.

128 of the short form provided by default. Patch from Olaf Dabrunz
129 and SuSe.
130 * Adjust build rules to make sure the installed binaries
131 are stripped.
132 * Increase the compiler warning level when building.

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

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

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

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

416 (passing its state through exec, certainly).
417 May be useful for smoother (heh) upgrades.

441 * Add '-F' (forcefsck) option to shutdown
442 * Close and reopen /dev/initctl on SIGUSR1 (mainly for a /dev in ram)

665 runlevel into utmp file etc)
666 - now using "reliable" signals instead of V7 style.
667 - Updated all scripts. Examples are in two directories:
668 etc (normal) and etc-sysv (sysv style scripts).

670 - added support for serial console.
671 - updated Propaganda, manpages.
672 - added shutdown access control.

676 SysVinit-2.4.tar.z.
677
678 2.4g 15-May-93
679 - Changed init to really catch SIGPWR 'cause we
680 hooked up an UPS to the Linux machine. The
681 keyword for catching the TreeFingerSalute is
682 now "ctrlaltdel" instead of "power{wait,fail}".
683
684 2.4a 22-Apr-93
685 - Fixed last to reckognize BSD style wtmp logging.
686 - Changed init to write wtmp records that are
687 SysV compliant but are also reckognized by the
688 BSD last. Added a '+' option to the 'process'
689 field of inittab, for getties that want to do
690 their own utmp/wtmp housekeeping (kludge!).
691 - Now accepts a runlevel on the command line,
692 and reckognizes the 'auto' argument. (Sets the
693 environment variable AUTOBOOT to YES)
694
695 2.2.3 24-Mar-93
696 - Ripped out the 'leave' action. To difficult, and
697 unneeded.

700 - This version is stable enough to post.
701
702 2.2 02-Mar-93
703 - Made wait()'s asynchronous
704 - Changed whole thing to one big state machine
705 - Now using 'pseudo levels' # & * for SYSINIT & BOOT
706 - Added a new type of 'action', called leave. This
707 process will be executed when the system goes from a
708 runlevel specified in it's runlevel field to a
709 level that's not. Nice to bring down NFS and the like.
710
711 2.1 28-Jan-93
712 - Fixed a bug with 'boot' and 'once'.
713 - Check 'initdefault' for validity.
714 - Reckognizes "single" as command line argument.
715 - Retries execvp with 'sh -c exec ..' if command
716 is a shell script. (shouldn't execvp do this?)
717 - Added patches to use syslog if defined.
718
719 2.0 08-Dec-92
720 - Rewrote the code totally, so started with a new
721 version number.

723 - With TEST switch on, this init & telinit can
724 run standalone for test purposes.
725
726 1.3, 05-Jul-92
727 - Got a 386, so installed Linux. Added 'soft' reboot
728 to be default under linux. Fixed some typos.
729
730 1.2, 16-Jun-92
731 - Bugreport from Michael Haardt ; removed deadlock
732 and added 'waitpid' instead of 'wait' for SYSV.
733
734 1.1, 30-Apr-92
735 - Read manual wrong: there is no 'action' field called
736 process, but all entries are of type process. Every
737 'process' get exec'ed by /bin/sh -c 'exec command'.
738 - Rapidly respawning processes are caught in the act.
739 - _SYSV support is really Linux support,
740 done by poe@daimi.aau.dk on 25-Mar-92.
741
742 1.0, 01-Feb-92
743 - Initial version, very primitive for the Minix
744 operating system. Required some mods. to the
745 kernel.
746
