16 otherwise initialize SELinux and load the policy. Patch from
17 Petter Reinholdtsen.
18 * Make quotes visible in example of the manual page of fstab-decode
19

35 from Bill Nottingham.
36 * Adjust makefile to make sure the install directories are created
37 before files are copied into them.
38 * Simplify build rules, based on patch from Mike Frysinger and Gentoo.
39 * Fix minor bug in optimizing of argument parsing. Based on
40 report from jakemus on freshmeat.
41 * Add casts to get rid of compiler warning about signed/unsigned issues.
42 * Change tty handling in init to make sure the UTF-8 flag is not cleared
43 on boot. Patch from Samuel Thibault.

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

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

132 of uptime too. In shutdown lines print downtimes rather than
133 the time between downs. Fix typo in string compare in last.c.
134 Patch by Thomas Hood.
135 * Improve handling of IPv6 addresses in last. Patch from Fedora.
136 * Document last options in usage information, previously only
137 mentioned in the manual page.
138 * Add new option -F to last, to output full date string instead
139 of the short form provided by default. Patch from Olaf Dabrunz
140 and SuSe.
141 * Adjust build rules to make sure the installed binaries
142 are stripped.
143 * Increase the compiler warning level when building.
144 * Fix utmp/wtmp updating on 64-bit platforms. Patch by Bill
145 Nottingham and Fedora.

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

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

206 * Let sulogin fall back to the staticly linked /bin/sash if both roots
207 shell and /bin/sh fail to execute.

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

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

426 'U' flag added to telinit. It forces init to re-exec itself
427 (passing its state through exec, certainly).
428 May be useful for smoother (heh) upgrades.

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

526 * Fixed init panic'ing on empty lines in /etc/inittab
527 * Changed default PATH to include /usr/local/sbin

531 /var/log and /etc itself.

674 - Lots of changes all over the place.
675 (like showing runlevel in "ps" listing, logging
676 runlevel into utmp file etc)
677 - now using "reliable" signals instead of V7 style.
678 - Updated all scripts. Examples are in two directories:
679 etc (normal) and etc-sysv (sysv style scripts).
680 - runlevel 0 = halt, 1 = single user, 6 = reboot.
681 - added support for serial console.
682 - updated Propaganda, manpages.
683 - added shutdown access control.

687 SysVinit-2.4.tar.z.
688
689 2.4g 15-May-93
690 - Changed init to really catch SIGPWR 'cause we
691 hooked up an UPS to the Linux machine. The
692 keyword for catching the TreeFingerSalute is
693 now "ctrlaltdel" instead of "power{wait,fail}".
694
695 2.4a 22-Apr-93
696 - Fixed last to reckognize BSD style wtmp logging.
697 - Changed init to write wtmp records that are
698 SysV compliant but are also reckognized by the
699 BSD last. Added a '+' option to the 'process'
700 field of inittab, for getties that want to do
701 their own utmp/wtmp housekeeping (kludge!).
702 - Now accepts a runlevel on the command line,
703 and reckognizes the 'auto' argument. (Sets the
704 environment variable AUTOBOOT to YES)
705
706 2.2.3 24-Mar-93
707 - Ripped out the 'leave' action. To difficult, and
708 unneeded.

711 - This version is stable enough to post.
712
713 2.2 02-Mar-93
714 - Made wait()'s asynchronous
715 - Changed whole thing to one big state machine
716 - Now using 'pseudo levels' # & * for SYSINIT & BOOT
717 - Added a new type of 'action', called leave. This
718 process will be executed when the system goes from a
719 runlevel specified in it's runlevel field to a
720 level that's not. Nice to bring down NFS and the like.
721
722 2.1 28-Jan-93
723 - Fixed a bug with 'boot' and 'once'.
724 - Check 'initdefault' for validity.
725 - Reckognizes "single" as command line argument.
726 - Retries execvp with 'sh -c exec ..' if command
727 is a shell script. (shouldn't execvp do this?)
728 - Added patches to use syslog if defined.
729
730 2.0 08-Dec-92
731 - Rewrote the code totally, so started with a new
732 version number.
733 - Dropped Minix support, this code now is Linux - specific.
734 - With TEST switch on, this init & telinit can
735 run standalone for test purposes.
736
737 1.3, 05-Jul-92
738 - Got a 386, so installed Linux. Added 'soft' reboot
739 to be default under linux. Fixed some typos.
740
741 1.2, 16-Jun-92
742 - Bugreport from Michael Haardt ; removed deadlock
743 and added 'waitpid' instead of 'wait' for SYSV.
744
745 1.1, 30-Apr-92
746 - Read manual wrong: there is no 'action' field called
747 process, but all entries are of type process. Every
748 'process' get exec'ed by /bin/sh -c 'exec command'.
749 - Rapidly respawning processes are caught in the act.
750 - _SYSV support is really Linux support,
751 done by poe@daimi.aau.dk on 25-Mar-92.
752
753 1.0, 01-Feb-92
754 - Initial version, very primitive for the Minix
755 operating system. Required some mods. to the
756 kernel.
757
