21 from Bill Nottingham.
22 * Adjust makefile to make sure the install directories are created
23 before files are copied into them.
24 * Simplify build rules, based on patch from Mike Frysinger and Gentoo.
25 * Fix minor bug in optimizing of argument parsing. Based on
26 report from jakemus on freshmeat.
27 * Add casts to get rid of compiler warning about signed/unsigned issues.
28 * Change tty handling in init to make sure the UTF-8 flag is not cleared
29 on boot. Patch from Samuel Thibault.

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

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

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

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

133 Patch from Christian 'Dr. Disk' Hechelmann and Fedora.
134 * Make sure to use execle and no execl when passing environment to
135 the new process. Patch from RedHat.
136 * Correct init to make sure the waiting status is preserved across
137 re-exec. Patch from RedHat.
138 * Correct init to avoid race condition when starting programs during
139 boot. Patch from SuSe.
140 * Allow 'telinit u' in runlevels 0 and 6. Patch from Thomas Hood.

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

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

198
199 * Fixed up bootlogd to read /proc/cmdline. Also keep an internal
200 linebuffer to process \r, \t and ^H. It is becoming useable.
201 * Applied trivial OWL patches
202 * Block signals in syslog(), since syslog() is not re-entrant
203 (James Olin Oden <joden@malachi.lee.k12.nc.us>, redhat bug #97534)
204 * Minor adjustements so that sysvinit compiles on the Hurd
205 * killall5 now skips kernel threads
206 * Inittab entries with both 'S' and other runlevels were broken.
207 Fix by Bryan Kadzban <bryan@kadzban.is-a-geek.net>
208 * Changed initreq.h to be more flexible and forwards-compatible.
209 * You can now through /dev/initctl set environment variables in
210 init that will be inherited by its children. For now, only
211 variables prefixed with INIT_ can be set and the maximum is
212 16 variables. There's also a length limit due to the size
213 of struct init_request, so it should be safe from abuse.
214 * Option -P and -H to shutdown set INIT_HALT=POWERDOWN and
215 INIT_HALT=HALT as environment variables as described above
216 * Add "mountpoint" utility.
217 * Slightly better algorithm in killall5.c:pidof()
218 * Added some patches from fedora-core (halt-usage, last -t,
219 sulogin-message, user-console)

224
225 * Add IPv6 support in last(1)
226 * Sulogin: even if the root password is empty, ask for a password-
227 otherwise there is no way to set a timeout.
228 * Removed support for ioctl.save.
229 * Turned of support for /etc/initrunlvl and /var/run/initrunlvl
230 * Fixed warts in dowall.c ("Dmitry V. Levin" <ldv@altlinux.org>)
231 * Fix init.c::spawn(). The "f" variable was used both as file descriptor
232 and waitpid(2) return code. In certain circumstances, this leads to
233 TIOCSCTTY with wrong file descriptor (Vladimir N. Oleynik).
234 * Fix fd leak in sulogin (Dmitry V. Levin).
235 * More error checking in all wait() calling code (Dmitry V. Levin).
236 * Fix argv[] initialization in spawn() (Dmitry V. Levin).
237 * Change strncpy to strncat in most places (Dmitry V. Levin).

243 * Don't use /etc/initlvl interface for telinit; only use /dev/initctl,
244 and give a clear error when that fails.
245 * Add -i/--init command line flag to init - this tells init
246 'behave as system init even if you're not PID#1'. Useful for
247 testing in chroot/jail type environments.

408 * Should compile with glibc 1.99 :)
409 * Change behaviour of reboot(1) and halt(1) so that the default when
410 the runlevel can't be determined is to call shutdown.
411 * Added re-exec patch from Al Viro (21 Feb 1998):
412 'U' flag added to telinit. It forces init to re-exec itself
413 (passing its state through exec, certainly).
414 May be useful for smoother (heh) upgrades.
415 24 Feb 1998, AV:
416 did_boot made global and added to state - thanks, Miquel.

434 * Fixed sulogin check on tty arg.
435 * Use strerror() instead of sys_errlist
436 * wall now supports a '-n' option to suppress [most of] the banner.
437 Debian doesn't use sysvinit's wall, but apparently Redhat does.
438 * Add '-F' (forcefsck) option to shutdown
439 * Close and reopen /dev/initctl on SIGUSR1 (mainly for a /dev in ram)

517 /var/log and /etc itself.

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

673 SysVinit-2.4.tar.z.
674
675 2.4g 15-May-93
676 - Changed init to really catch SIGPWR 'cause we
677 hooked up an UPS to the Linux machine. The
678 keyword for catching the TreeFingerSalute is
679 now "ctrlaltdel" instead of "power{wait,fail}".
680
681 2.4a 22-Apr-93
682 - Fixed last to reckognize BSD style wtmp logging.
683 - Changed init to write wtmp records that are
684 SysV compliant but are also reckognized by the
685 BSD last. Added a '+' option to the 'process'
686 field of inittab, for getties that want to do
687 their own utmp/wtmp housekeeping (kludge!).
688 - Now accepts a runlevel on the command line,
689 and reckognizes the 'auto' argument. (Sets the
690 environment variable AUTOBOOT to YES)
691
692 2.2.3 24-Mar-93
693 - Ripped out the 'leave' action. To difficult, and
694 unneeded.

697 - This version is stable enough to post.
698
699 2.2 02-Mar-93
700 - Made wait()'s asynchronous
701 - Changed whole thing to one big state machine
702 - Now using 'pseudo levels' # & * for SYSINIT & BOOT
703 - Added a new type of 'action', called leave. This
704 process will be executed when the system goes from a
705 runlevel specified in it's runlevel field to a
706 level that's not. Nice to bring down NFS and the like.
707
708 2.1 28-Jan-93
709 - Fixed a bug with 'boot' and 'once'.
710 - Check 'initdefault' for validity.
711 - Reckognizes "single" as command line argument.
712 - Retries execvp with 'sh -c exec ..' if command
713 is a shell script. (shouldn't execvp do this?)
714 - Added patches to use syslog if defined.
715
716 2.0 08-Dec-92
717 - Rewrote the code totally, so started with a new
718 version number.

720 - With TEST switch on, this init & telinit can
721 run standalone for test purposes.
722
723 1.3, 05-Jul-92
724 - Got a 386, so installed Linux. Added 'soft' reboot
725 to be default under linux. Fixed some typos.
726
727 1.2, 16-Jun-92
728 - Bugreport from Michael Haardt ; removed deadlock
729 and added 'waitpid' instead of 'wait' for SYSV.
730
731 1.1, 30-Apr-92
732 - Read manual wrong: there is no 'action' field called
733 process, but all entries are of type process. Every
734 'process' get exec'ed by /bin/sh -c 'exec command'.
735 - Rapidly respawning processes are caught in the act.
736 - _SYSV support is really Linux support,
737 done by poe@daimi.aau.dk on 25-Mar-92.
738
739 1.0, 01-Feb-92
740 - Initial version, very primitive for the Minix
741 operating system. Required some mods. to the
742 kernel.
743
