3 [ Petter Reinholdtsen ]
4 * Mention new home on Savannah in README.
5 * Revert change from Fedora/RedHat where the now obsolete command
6 INIT_CMD_CHANGECONS was introduced. Based on feedback and patch
7 from Bill Nottingham.
8 * Adjust makefile to make sure the install directories are created
9 before files are copied into them.
10 * Simplify build rules, based on patch from Mike Frysinger and Gentoo.
11 * Fix minor bug in optimizing of argument parsing. Based on
12 report from jakemus on freshmeat.
13 * Add casts to get rid of compiler warning about signed/unsigned issues.
14 * Change tty handling in init to make sure the UTF-8 flag is not cleared
15 on boot. Patch from Samuel Thibault.
16 * Add Makefile in toplevel directory.
17 * Print usage information when shutdown is used by non-root user.
18 Patch from Mike Frysinger and Gentoo.
19 * Sync shutdown manual page and usage information. Patch from Mike
20 Frysinger and Gentoo.
21 * Fix race condition in utmp writing. Patch from Gil Kloepfer via
22 Mike Frysinger and Gentoo.
23 * Rewrite findtty() in bootlogd to recursively search /dev/ for the
24 correct device, to handle terminal devices for example in /dev/pty/.
25 Patch from Debian.
26 * Make sure bootlogd findpty() returns an error value when it fails to
27 find a usable pty. Patch from Rob Leslie via Debian.
28 * Make sure bootlogd fflush() every line, even if asked not to flush
29 to disk using fdatasync(). Patch from Scott Gifford via Debian.
30 * Add compatibility code to handle old path "/etc/powerstatus" for a
31 while.
32 * Incude definition for MNT_DETACH which is missing in older GNU libc
33 headers.
34 * Do not strip binaries before installing them, to make it easier to
35 get binaries with debug information installed.
36
37 [ Werner Fink ]
38 * Add the comment from Andrea Arcangeli about the correct
39 place of setting the default childhandler within spawn().
40 * Make sure that newline is printed out for last(1) even
41 if an utmp record entry is truncated.
42 * Check if utmp not only exists but also is writable and delay
43 writing out of the utmp runlevel record if utmp is not writable.
44 * Be able to find libcrypt also on 64 bit based architectures.
45 * Add option -w to the last command to display the full user and
46 domain names in the output. Patch from Petr Lautrbach.
47 * Add a manual page for utmpdump as this tool is sometimes
48 very useful even if not intended for normal use.
49 * Use paths.h macros for wall
50 * Change path "/etc/powerstatus" to "/var/run/powerstatus"
51 * Detected also removable block devices at halt/reboot to be able
52 to flush data and send them the ATA standby command. This should
53 avoid data loss on USB sticks and other removable block devices.
54 * Flush block devices on halt/reboot if not done by the kernel.
55 * Set SHELL to /bin/sh in the environmant of shutdown.
56 * Retry to write out shutdown messages if interrupted.
57 * pidof/killall5 - make omit pid list a dynamic one.
58 * pidof - provide '-n' to skip stat(2) syscall on network based FS.
59 * init - avoid compiler warnings
60 * init - initialize console by using the macros from ttydefaults.h
61 * init - add the possiblity to ignore further interrupts from keyboard
62 * init - add the possiblity to set sane terminal line settings
63 * sulogin - add the possibility to reset the terminal io
64 * Fix some minor problems
65 * init - enable is_selinux_enabled() to detect selinuxfs
66 * Add fix for Debian bug #536574 -- Can be enabled by -DACCTON_OFF
67 * Add helper program fstab-decode to make it easier to handle
68 /etc/mtab content. Patch by Miloslav Trmac and Fedora.
69 * Add fix for Debian bug #335023 - Make sure TERM is set on FreeBSD.
70 * Add fix for Debian bug #374038 - Make it clear that shutdown -c can
71 only cancel a waiting shutdown, not an active one.
72 * Add note to pidof manual page about the use of readlink(2). Patch by
73 Bill Nottingham and Fedora.
74 * Add PAM patch contrib/notify-pam-dead.patch based on Debian bug
75 #68621, which will add PAM support for programs spawned by init on
76 the console like sulogin. Based on patch by Topi Miettinen. This
77 patch is not applied by default yet while we review its
78 usefullness. It is only helpful for session handling, as sulogin
79 do not use and will not use a PAM conv() function. The current
80 sulogin is able to handle DES as well as MD5, SHA, and Blowfish
81 encrypted passwords due using getpwnam(3).
82 * Move utmp/wtmp before the execvp() in spawn() to be sure to
83 use the correct pid even on a controlling tty
84 * Remaining problem is that the pid of the second fork() for
85 getting a controlling tty isn't that reported by spawn()
86 * Re-enable writting utmp/wtmp for boot scripts
87 * Provide a simply /etc/pam.d/init as without it will not work (sigh!)
88 * Extend sulogin to support additional encryption algorithms
89 * Re-enable maintenance message of sulogin
90 * Enable the sulogin fallback password check to handle MD5, SHA, and
91 Blowfish encrypted passwords in case of getpwnam(3) fails.
92 * sulogin picking the SELinux context was broken. Patch by Daniel Walsh

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

105 of uptime too. In shutdown lines print downtimes rather than
106 the time between downs. Fix typo in string compare in last.c.
107 Patch by Thomas Hood.
108 * Improve handling of IPv6 addresses in last. Patch from Fedora.
109 * Document last options in usage information, previously only
110 mentioned in the manual page.
111 * Add new option -F to last, to output full date string instead
112 of the short form provided by default. Patch from Olaf Dabrunz
113 and SuSe.
114 * Adjust build rules to make sure the installed binaries
115 are stripped.
116 * Increase the compiler warning level when building.
117 * Fix utmp/wtmp updating on 64-bit platforms. Patch by Bill
118 Nottingham and Fedora.
119 * Avoid unchecked return value from malloc() in utmpdump.
120 Patch from Christian 'Dr. Disk' Hechelmann and Fedora.
121 * Make sure to use execle and no execl when passing environment to
122 the new process. Patch from RedHat.
123 * Correct init to make sure the waiting status is preserved across
124 re-exec. Patch from RedHat.
125 * Correct init to avoid race condition when starting programs during
126 boot. Patch from SuSe.
127 * Allow 'telinit u' in runlevels 0 and 6. Patch from Thomas Hood.
128 * Change install rules to make pidof an absolute symlink. Patch from
129 Thomas Hood.
130 * Improve error message from init if fork() fail. Patch found in Suse.
131 * Add support for SE Linux capability handling. Patch from Manoj
132 Srivastava, adjusted to avoid aborting if SE policy was loaded in
133 the initrd with patch from Bill Nottingham and Fedora.
134 * Add -c option to pidof for only matching processes with the same
135 process root. Ignore -c when not running as root. Patch from
136 Thomas Woerner and Fedora.
137 * Adjust init to terminate argv0 with one 0 rather than two so that
138 process name can be one character longer. Patch by Kir Kolyshkin.
139 * Make sure bootlogd exit with non-error exit code when forking of
140 the child successfully.
141 * Add bootlogd option -s to make it possible to control the use of
142 fdatasync(). Patch from Thomas Hood.
143 * Add bootlogd option -c to tell it to create the log file if it does
144 not exist. Patch from Thomas Hood.
145 * Let bootlogd also look at ttyB* devices to work on HPPA. Patch
146 from Thomas Hood.
147 * Change init to use setenv() instead of putenv, make sure the PATH
148 value is usable on re-exec. Patch from Thomas Hood.
149 * Add usleep in killall5 after killing processes, to force the kernel
150 to reschedule. Patch from SuSe.
151 * Modify pidof to not print empty line if no pid was found.
152 * Modify init and sulogin to fix emergency mode's tty, making sure ^C
153 and ^Z work when booting with 'emergency' kernel option. Patch from
154 Samuel Thibault.
155 * Modify init to allow some time for failed opens to resolve themselves.
156 Patch from Bill Nottingham and Fedora.
157 * Modify init to shut down IDE, SCSI and SATA disks properly. Patches
158 from Sebastian Reichelt, Werner Fink and SuSe.
159 * Modify wall to use UT_LINESIZE from <utmp.h> instead of hardcoded
160 string lengths. Patch from SuSe.
161 * Change wall to make halt include hostname in output.
162 * Change killall to avoid killing init by mistake. Patch from SuSe.
163 * Change killall5 to use the exit value to report if it found any
164 processes to kill. Patch from Debian.
165 * Add option -o opmitpid to killall5, to make it possible to skip
166 some pids during shutdown. Based on patch from Colin Watson and
167 Ubuntu.
168 * Add references between killall5 and pidof manual pages. Patch from Debian.
169 * Modify killall to work better with user space file system, by
170 changing cwd to /proc when stopping and killing processes, and
171 avoiding stat() when the value isn't used. Also, lock process
172 pages in memory to avoid paging when user processes are stopped.
173 Patch from Debian and Goswin von Brederlow with changes by Kel
174 Modderman.
175 * Change shutdown to only accept flags -H and -P with the -h flag,
176 and document this requirement in the manual page.
177 * Change reboot/halt to work properly when used as a login shell.
178 Patch by Dale R. Worley and Fedora.
179 * Let sulogin fall back to the staticly linked /bin/sash if both roots
180 shell and /bin/sh fail to execute.

184 sysvinit (2.86) cistron; urgency=low
185
186 * Fixed up bootlogd to read /proc/cmdline. Also keep an internal
187 linebuffer to process \r, \t and ^H. It is becoming useable.
188 * Applied trivial OWL patches
189 * Block signals in syslog(), since syslog() is not re-entrant
190 (James Olin Oden <joden@malachi.lee.k12.nc.us>, redhat bug #97534)
191 * Minor adjustements so that sysvinit compiles on the Hurd
192 * killall5 now skips kernel threads
193 * Inittab entries with both 'S' and other runlevels were broken.
194 Fix by Bryan Kadzban <bryan@kadzban.is-a-geek.net>
195 * Changed initreq.h to be more flexible and forwards-compatible.
196 * You can now through /dev/initctl set environment variables in
197 init that will be inherited by its children. For now, only
198 variables prefixed with INIT_ can be set and the maximum is
199 16 variables. There's also a length limit due to the size
200 of struct init_request, so it should be safe from abuse.
201 * Option -P and -H to shutdown set INIT_HALT=POWERDOWN and
202 INIT_HALT=HALT as environment variables as described above
203 * Add "mountpoint" utility.
204 * Slightly better algorithm in killall5.c:pidof()
205 * Added some patches from fedora-core (halt-usage, last -t,
206 sulogin-message, user-console)

211
212 * Add IPv6 support in last(1)
213 * Sulogin: even if the root password is empty, ask for a password-
214 otherwise there is no way to set a timeout.
215 * Removed support for ioctl.save.
216 * Turned of support for /etc/initrunlvl and /var/run/initrunlvl
217 * Fixed warts in dowall.c ("Dmitry V. Levin" <ldv@altlinux.org>)
218 * Fix init.c::spawn(). The "f" variable was used both as file descriptor
219 and waitpid(2) return code. In certain circumstances, this leads to
220 TIOCSCTTY with wrong file descriptor (Vladimir N. Oleynik).
221 * Fix fd leak in sulogin (Dmitry V. Levin).
222 * More error checking in all wait() calling code (Dmitry V. Levin).
223 * Fix argv[] initialization in spawn() (Dmitry V. Levin).
224 * Change strncpy to strncat in most places (Dmitry V. Levin).

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

347 For backwards compatibility when you try to boot a 2.0.x kernel
348 with a linux > 2.1.70 /dev/console device.
349 * Change src/Makefile for non-debian systems (mainly, RedHat)
350 * Try to create /dev/initctl if not present; check every time to see
351 if the dev/ino of /dev/initctl has changed and re-open it. This should
352 help devfs a bit.
353 * Send SIGUSR1 to init at bootup to let it re-open /dev/initctl;

396 * Change behaviour of reboot(1) and halt(1) so that the default when
397 the runlevel can't be determined is to call shutdown.
398 * Added re-exec patch from Al Viro (21 Feb 1998):
399 'U' flag added to telinit. It forces init to re-exec itself
400 (passing its state through exec, certainly).
401 May be useful for smoother (heh) upgrades.
402 24 Feb 1998, AV:
403 did_boot made global and added to state - thanks, Miquel.
404 Yet another file descriptors leak - close state pipe if
405 re_exec fails.

494
495 * Skipped 2.65. A development 2.65 got out by accident and is apparently
496 being used..
497 * Also compiles and runs with GNU libc (and on the Alpha)
498 * Fixed dowall.c not to exit when getpwuid() fails and uid == 0.
499 * Fixed init panic'ing on empty lines in /etc/inittab
500 * Changed default PATH to include /usr/local/sbin

502 This allows using ^C to interrupt some parts of eg the boot process.
503 * Remove old symlink in /var/log/initlvl; let init check both
504 /var/log and /etc itself.

661
662 2.4g 15-May-93

664 hooked up an UPS to the Linux machine. The
665 keyword for catching the TreeFingerSalute is
666 now "ctrlaltdel" instead of "power{wait,fail}".
667
668 2.4a 22-Apr-93
669 - Fixed last to reckognize BSD style wtmp logging.
670 - Changed init to write wtmp records that are
671 SysV compliant but are also reckognized by the
672 BSD last. Added a '+' option to the 'process'
673 field of inittab, for getties that want to do
674 their own utmp/wtmp housekeeping (kludge!).
675 - Now accepts a runlevel on the command line,
676 and reckognizes the 'auto' argument. (Sets the
677 environment variable AUTOBOOT to YES)
678
679 2.2.3 24-Mar-93
680 - Ripped out the 'leave' action. To difficult, and
681 unneeded.

685
686 2.2 02-Mar-93
687 - Made wait()'s asynchronous
688 - Changed whole thing to one big state machine
689 - Now using 'pseudo levels' # & * for SYSINIT & BOOT
690 - Added a new type of 'action', called leave. This
691 process will be executed when the system goes from a
692 runlevel specified in it's runlevel field to a
693 level that's not. Nice to bring down NFS and the like.
694
695 2.1 28-Jan-93
696 - Fixed a bug with 'boot' and 'once'.
697 - Check 'initdefault' for validity.
698 - Reckognizes "single" as command line argument.
699 - Retries execvp with 'sh -c exec ..' if command
700 is a shell script. (shouldn't execvp do this?)
701 - Added patches to use syslog if defined.
702
703 2.0 08-Dec-92
704 - Rewrote the code totally, so started with a new
705 version number.
706 - Dropped Minix support, this code now is Linux - specific.
707 - With TEST switch on, this init & telinit can
708 run standalone for test purposes.
709
710 1.3, 05-Jul-92
711 - Got a 386, so installed Linux. Added 'soft' reboot
712 to be default under linux. Fixed some typos.
713
714 1.2, 16-Jun-92
715 - Bugreport from Michael Haardt ; removed deadlock
716 and added 'waitpid' instead of 'wait' for SYSV.
717
718 1.1, 30-Apr-92
719 - Read manual wrong: there is no 'action' field called
720 process, but all entries are of type process. Every
721 'process' get exec'ed by /bin/sh -c 'exec command'.
722 - Rapidly respawning processes are caught in the act.
723 - _SYSV support is really Linux support,
724 done by poe@daimi.aau.dk on 25-Mar-92.
725
726 1.0, 01-Feb-92
727 - Initial version, very primitive for the Minix
728 operating system. Required some mods. to the
729 kernel.
