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.

35 [ Werner Fink ]
36 * Add the comment from Andrea Arcangeli about the correct
37 place of setting the default childhandler within spawn().
38 * Make sure that newline is printed out for last(1) even
39 if an utmp record entry is truncated.
40 * Check if utmp not only exists but also is writable and delay
41 writing out of the utmp runlevel record if utmp is not writable.
42 * Be able to find libcrypt also on 64 bit based architectures.
43 * Add option -w to the last command to display the full user and
44 domain names in the output. Patch from Petr Lautrbach.
45 * Add a manual page for utmpdump as this tool is sometimes
46 very useful even if not intended for normal use.
47 * Use paths.h macros for wall
48 * Change path "/etc/powerstatus" to "/var/run/powerstatus"
49 * Detected also removable block devices at halt/reboot to be able
50 to flush data and send them the ATA standby command. This should
51 avoid data loss on USB sticks and other removable block devices.
52 * Flush block devices on halt/reboot if not done by the kernel.
53 * Set SHELL to /bin/sh in the environmant of shutdown.
54 * Retry to write out shutdown messages if interrupted.
55 * pidof/killall5 - make omit pid list a dynamic one.
56 * pidof - provide '-n' to skip stat(2) syscall on network based FS.
57 * init - avoid compiler warnings
58 * init - initialize console by using the macros from ttydefaults.h
59 * init - add the possiblity to ignore further interrupts from keyboard
60 * init - add the possiblity to set sane terminal line settings
61 * sulogin - add the possibility to reset the terminal io
62 * Fix some minor problems
63 * init - enable is_selinux_enabled() to detect selinuxfs
64 * Add fix for Debian bug #536574 -- Can be enabled by -DACCTON_OFF
65 * Add helper program fstab-decode to make it easier to handle
66 /etc/mtab content. Patch by Miloslav Trmac and Fedora.
67 * Add fix for Debian bug #335023 - Make sure TERM is set on FreeBSD.
68 * Add fix for Debian bug #374038 - Make it clear that shutdown -c can
69 only cancel a waiting shutdown, not an active one.
70 * Add note to pidof manual page about the use of readlink(2). Patch by
71 Bill Nottingham and Fedora.
72 * Add changes for Debian bug #68621 - Add PAM support for programs spawned
73 by init on the console like sulogin. Based on patch by Topi Miettinen.
74 * Test out PAM support, extend PAM support by providing environment
75 is specified by /etc/pam.d/init
76 * Move utmp/wtmp before the execvp() in spawn() to be sure to
77 use the correct pid even on a controlling tty
78 * Remaining problem is that the pid of the second fork() for
79 getting a controlling tty isn't that reported by spawn()
80 * Re-enable writting utmp/wtmp for boot scripts
81 * Provide a simply /etc/pam.d/init as without it will not work (sigh!)
82 * Extend sulogin to support additional encryption algorithms
83 * Re-enable maintenance message of sulogin
84 * Remove PAM session start part from init as sulogin do not use
85 and will not use a PAM conv() function. The current sulogin
86 is able to handle DES as well as MD5, SHA, and Blowfish encrypted
87 passwords due using getpwnam(3).
88 * Enable the sulogin fallback password check to handle MD5, SHA, and
89 Blowfish encrypted passwords in case of getpwnam(3) fails.
90 * sulogin picking the SELinux context was broken. Patch by Daniel Walsh

104 the time between downs. Fix typo in string compare in last.c.
105 Patch by Thomas Hood.
106 * Improve handling of IPv6 addresses in last. Patch from Fedora.
107 * Document last options in usage information, previously only
108 mentioned in the manual page.
109 * Add new option -F to last, to output full date string instead
110 of the short form provided by default. Patch from Olaf Dabrunz
111 and SuSe.
112 * Adjust build rules to make sure the installed binaries
113 are stripped.
114 * Increase the compiler warning level when building.
115 * Fix utmp/wtmp updating on 64-bit platforms. Patch by Bill

119 * Make sure to use execle and no execl when passing environment to
120 the new process. Patch from RedHat.
121 * Correct init to make sure the waiting status is preserved across
122 re-exec. Patch from RedHat.
123 * Correct init to avoid race condition when starting programs during
124 boot. Patch from SuSe.

130 Srivastava, adjusted to avoid aborting if SE policy was loaded in
131 the initrd with patch from Bill Nottingham and Fedora.
132 * Add -c option to pidof for only matching processes with the same
133 process root. Ignore -c when not running as root. Patch from
134 Thomas Woerner and Fedora.
135 * Adjust init to terminate argv0 with one 0 rather than two so that
136 process name can be one character longer. Patch by Kir Kolyshkin.
137 * Make sure bootlogd exit with non-error exit code when forking of
138 the child successfully.
139 * Add bootlogd option -s to make it possible to control the use of
140 fdatasync(). Patch from Thomas Hood.
141 * Add bootlogd option -c to tell it to create the log file if it does
142 not exist. Patch from Thomas Hood.
143 * Let bootlogd also look at ttyB* devices to work on HPPA. Patch
144 from Thomas Hood.
145 * Change init to use setenv() instead of putenv, make sure the PATH
146 value is usable on re-exec. Patch from Thomas Hood.
147 * Add usleep in killall5 after killing processes, to force the kernel
148 to reschedule. Patch from SuSe.
149 * Modify pidof to not print empty line if no pid was found.
150 * Modify init and sulogin to fix emergency mode's tty, making sure ^C
151 and ^Z work when booting with 'emergency' kernel option. Patch from
152 Samuel Thibault.
153 * Modify init to allow some time for failed opens to resolve themselves.
154 Patch from Bill Nottingham and Fedora.
155 * Modify init to shut down IDE, SCSI and SATA disks properly. Patches
156 from Sebastian Reichelt, Werner Fink and SuSe.

158 string lengths. Patch from SuSe.
159 * Change wall to make halt include hostname in output.
160 * Change killall to avoid killing init by mistake. Patch from SuSe.
161 * Change killall5 to use the exit value to report if it found any
162 processes to kill. Patch from Debian.
163 * Add option -o opmitpid to killall5, to make it possible to skip
164 some pids during shutdown. Based on patch from Colin Watson and
165 Ubuntu.
166 * Add references between killall5 and pidof manual pages. Patch from Debian.
167 * Modify killall to work better with user space file system, by
168 changing cwd to /proc when stopping and killing processes, and
169 avoiding stat() when the value isn't used. Also, lock process
170 pages in memory to avoid paging when user processes are stopped.
171 Patch from Debian and Goswin von Brederlow with changes by Kel
172 Modderman.
173 * Change shutdown to only accept flags -H and -P with the -h flag,
174 and document this requirement in the manual page.

183
184 * Fixed up bootlogd to read /proc/cmdline. Also keep an internal
185 linebuffer to process \r, \t and ^H. It is becoming useable.
186 * Applied trivial OWL patches
187 * Block signals in syslog(), since syslog() is not re-entrant
188 (James Olin Oden <joden@malachi.lee.k12.nc.us>, redhat bug #97534)
189 * Minor adjustements so that sysvinit compiles on the Hurd
190 * killall5 now skips kernel threads
191 * Inittab entries with both 'S' and other runlevels were broken.
192 Fix by Bryan Kadzban <bryan@kadzban.is-a-geek.net>
193 * Changed initreq.h to be more flexible and forwards-compatible.
194 * You can now through /dev/initctl set environment variables in
195 init that will be inherited by its children. For now, only
196 variables prefixed with INIT_ can be set and the maximum is
197 16 variables. There's also a length limit due to the size
198 of struct init_request, so it should be safe from abuse.
199 * Option -P and -H to shutdown set INIT_HALT=POWERDOWN and
200 INIT_HALT=HALT as environment variables as described above
201 * Add "mountpoint" utility.
202 * Slightly better algorithm in killall5.c:pidof()
203 * Added some patches from fedora-core (halt-usage, last -t,
204 sulogin-message, user-console)

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

231 'behave as system init even if you're not PID#1'. Useful for

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

493 * Skipped 2.65. A development 2.65 got out by accident and is apparently
494 being used..
495 * Also compiles and runs with GNU libc (and on the Alpha)
496 * Fixed dowall.c not to exit when getpwuid() fails and uid == 0.
497 * Fixed init panic'ing on empty lines in /etc/inittab
498 * Changed default PATH to include /usr/local/sbin
499 * Set /dev/console as controlling terminal for sysinit,bootwait,wait,powerwait
500 This allows using ^C to interrupt some parts of eg the boot process.
501 * Remove old symlink in /var/log/initlvl; let init check both
502 /var/log and /etc itself.

647 runlevel into utmp file etc)
648 - now using "reliable" signals instead of V7 style.
649 - Updated all scripts. Examples are in two directories:
650 etc (normal) and etc-sysv (sysv style scripts).

658 SysVinit-2.4.tar.z.
659
660 2.4g 15-May-93

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

683
684 2.2 02-Mar-93
685 - Made wait()'s asynchronous
686 - Changed whole thing to one big state machine
687 - Now using 'pseudo levels' # & * for SYSINIT & BOOT
688 - Added a new type of 'action', called leave. This
689 process will be executed when the system goes from a
690 runlevel specified in it's runlevel field to a
691 level that's not. Nice to bring down NFS and the like.
692
693 2.1 28-Jan-93
694 - Fixed a bug with 'boot' and 'once'.
695 - Check 'initdefault' for validity.
696 - Reckognizes "single" as command line argument.
697 - Retries execvp with 'sh -c exec ..' if command
698 is a shell script. (shouldn't execvp do this?)
699 - Added patches to use syslog if defined.
700
701 2.0 08-Dec-92
702 - Rewrote the code totally, so started with a new
703 version number.
704 - Dropped Minix support, this code now is Linux - specific.
705 - With TEST switch on, this init & telinit can
706 run standalone for test purposes.
707
708 1.3, 05-Jul-92
709 - Got a 386, so installed Linux. Added 'soft' reboot
710 to be default under linux. Fixed some typos.
711
712 1.2, 16-Jun-92
713 - Bugreport from Michael Haardt ; removed deadlock
714 and added 'waitpid' instead of 'wait' for SYSV.
715
716 1.1, 30-Apr-92
717 - Read manual wrong: there is no 'action' field called
718 process, but all entries are of type process. Every
719 'process' get exec'ed by /bin/sh -c 'exec command'.
720 - Rapidly respawning processes are caught in the act.
721 - _SYSV support is really Linux support,
722 done by poe@daimi.aau.dk on 25-Mar-92.
723
724 1.0, 01-Feb-92
725 - Initial version, very primitive for the Minix
726 operating system. Required some mods. to the
727 kernel.
728
