4 * Remove man-db tag for encoding for canonical man
5 * Sulogin: try to detect the real device(s) used for the system console
6 /dev/console if but only if /dev/console is used. On Linux this can
7 be more than one device, e.g. a serial line as well as a virtual
8 console as well as a simple printer.
9 * Fix counting message lines in wall. Patch from Petr Lautrbach.
10 * Fix bad printf conversion specifier in wall. Patch from S├ębastien Luttringer.
11 * Add patches from Openwall project. Thanks goes to Solar Designer.
12 * Add code to detect the system consoles with the help of the
13 new /proc/consoles files of linux kernel 2.6.38+
14 * Try to make utmpdump IPv6 valid, change based on suggestion from
15 Navdeep Bhatia (see local bug #32429)
16 * Fix signal and alarm handling based on the patch from Florent Viard.
17 (was local bug #32304)
18 * Add fix for Redhat bug #573346: last incorrectly displays IPv6
19 addresses (was local bug #29497)
20 * Correct fix for Debian bug #547073: use IUTF8 flag if defined
21 and if already set to make sure the utf-8 flag is not cleared
22 from the tty. Patch from Samuel Thibault.
23 * Include limits.h in killall.c to enforce definition of PATH_MAX
24 * Fix sysvinit bug #29758 Linker invocation should not contain
25 headers. Change based on patch from Elias Pipping.
26 * Add fix for Debian bug #580272: use return value 1 of
27 is_selinux_enabled() to determine if SELinux is enabled,
28 otherwise initialize SELinux and load the policy. Patch from
29 Petter Reinholdtsen.
30 * Make quotes visible in example of the manual page of fstab-decode
31 * Sulogin: enforce reconnection of stdin/stdout/stderr if a device
32 was specified.
33 * Sulogin: if zero is read at reading the passwd guess it's done.
34 * Sulogin: respect byte order that is do not mix chars and ints

37 * Next release will be 2.89dsf.
38 * Add #ifdef in bootlogd.c to avoid gcc warnings about unused
39 variable on non-linux platforms.
40 * Only set the VSWTC field for termios in init if it is available,
41 to get the source building on FreeBSD.
42 * Add some code to be able to detect programs even as user with
43 kernel 3.0 and above

68 Mike Frysinger and Gentoo.
69 * Rewrite findtty() in bootlogd to recursively search /dev/ for the
70 correct device, to handle terminal devices for example in /dev/pty/.
71 Patch from Debian.
72 * Make sure bootlogd findpty() returns an error value when it fails to
73 find a usable pty. Patch from Rob Leslie via Debian.
74 * Make sure bootlogd fflush() every line, even if asked not to flush
75 to disk using fdatasync(). Patch from Scott Gifford via Debian.
76 * Add compatibility code to handle old path "/etc/powerstatus" for a
77 while.
78 * Incude definition for MNT_DETACH which is missing in older GNU libc
79 headers.
80 * Do not strip binaries before installing them, to make it easier to
81 get binaries with debug information installed.
82
83 [ Werner Fink ]
84 * Add the comment from Andrea Arcangeli about the correct
85 place of setting the default childhandler within spawn().
86 * Make sure that newline is printed out for last(1) even
87 if an utmp record entry is truncated.
88 * Check if utmp not only exists but also is writable and delay
89 writing out of the utmp runlevel record if utmp is not writable.
90 * Be able to find libcrypt also on 64 bit based architectures.
91 * Add option -w to the last command to display the full user and
92 domain names in the output. Patch from Petr Lautrbach.
93 * Add a manual page for utmpdump as this tool is sometimes
94 very useful even if not intended for normal use.
95 * Use paths.h macros for wall
96 * Change path "/etc/powerstatus" to "/var/run/powerstatus"
97 * Detected also removable block devices at halt/reboot to be able
98 to flush data and send them the ATA standby command. This should
99 avoid data loss on USB sticks and other removable block devices.
100 * Flush block devices on halt/reboot if not done by the kernel.
101 * Set SHELL to /bin/sh in the environmant of shutdown.
102 * Retry to write out shutdown messages if interrupted.
103 * pidof/killall5 - make omit pid list a dynamic one.
104 * pidof - provide '-n' to skip stat(2) syscall on network based FS.
105 * init - avoid compiler warnings
106 * init - initialize console by using the macros from ttydefaults.h
107 * init - add the possiblity to ignore further interrupts from keyboard
108 * init - add the possiblity to set sane terminal line settings
109 * sulogin - add the possibility to reset the terminal io
110 * Fix some minor problems
111 * init - enable is_selinux_enabled() to detect selinuxfs
112 * Add fix for Debian bug #536574 -- Can be enabled by -DACCTON_OFF
113 * Add helper program fstab-decode to make it easier to handle
114 /etc/mtab content. Patch by Miloslav Trmac and Fedora.
115 * Add fix for Debian bug #335023 - Make sure TERM is set on FreeBSD.
116 * Add fix for Debian bug #374038 - Make it clear that shutdown -c can
117 only cancel a waiting shutdown, not an active one.
118 * Add note to pidof manual page about the use of readlink(2). Patch by
119 Bill Nottingham and Fedora.
120 * Add PAM patch contrib/notify-pam-dead.patch based on Debian bug
121 #68621, which will add PAM support for programs spawned by init on
122 the console like sulogin. Based on patch by Topi Miettinen. This
123 patch is not applied by default yet while we review its
124 usefullness. It is only helpful for session handling, as sulogin
125 do not use and will not use a PAM conv() function. The current
126 sulogin is able to handle DES as well as MD5, SHA, and Blowfish
127 encrypted passwords due using getpwnam(3).
128 * Move utmp/wtmp before the execvp() in spawn() to be sure to
129 use the correct pid even on a controlling tty
130 * Remaining problem is that the pid of the second fork() for
131 getting a controlling tty isn't that reported by spawn()
132 * Re-enable writting utmp/wtmp for boot scripts
133 * Extend sulogin to support additional encryption algorithms
134 * Re-enable maintenance message of sulogin
135 * Enable the sulogin fallback password check to handle MD5, SHA, and
136 Blowfish encrypted passwords in case of getpwnam(3) fails.
137 * sulogin picking the SELinux context was broken. Patch by Daniel Walsh

169 re-exec. Patch from RedHat.
170 * Correct init to avoid race condition when starting programs during
171 boot. Patch from SuSe.

174 Thomas Hood.
175 * Improve error message from init if fork() fail. Patch found in Suse.
176 * Add support for SE Linux capability handling. Patch from Manoj
177 Srivastava, adjusted to avoid aborting if SE policy was loaded in
178 the initrd with patch from Bill Nottingham and Fedora.
179 * Add -c option to pidof for only matching processes with the same
180 process root. Ignore -c when not running as root. Patch from
181 Thomas Woerner and Fedora.
182 * Adjust init to terminate argv0 with one 0 rather than two so that
183 process name can be one character longer. Patch by Kir Kolyshkin.
184 * Make sure bootlogd exit with non-error exit code when forking of
185 the child successfully.
186 * Add bootlogd option -s to make it possible to control the use of
187 fdatasync(). Patch from Thomas Hood.
188 * Add bootlogd option -c to tell it to create the log file if it does
189 not exist. Patch from Thomas Hood.
190 * Let bootlogd also look at ttyB* devices to work on HPPA. Patch

205 string lengths. Patch from SuSe.
206 * Change wall to make halt include hostname in output.
207 * Change killall to avoid killing init by mistake. Patch from SuSe.
208 * Change killall5 to use the exit value to report if it found any
209 processes to kill. Patch from Debian.

213 * Add references between killall5 and pidof manual pages. Patch from Debian.
214 * Modify killall to work better with user space file system, by
215 changing cwd to /proc when stopping and killing processes, and
216 avoiding stat() when the value isn't used. Also, lock process
217 pages in memory to avoid paging when user processes are stopped.
218 Patch from Debian and Goswin von Brederlow with changes by Kel
219 Modderman.
220 * Change shutdown to only accept flags -H and -P with the -h flag,

231 * Fixed up bootlogd to read /proc/cmdline. Also keep an internal
232 linebuffer to process \r, \t and ^H. It is becoming useable.
233 * Applied trivial OWL patches
234 * Block signals in syslog(), since syslog() is not re-entrant
235 (James Olin Oden <joden@malachi.lee.k12.nc.us>, redhat bug #97534)
236 * Minor adjustements so that sysvinit compiles on the Hurd
237 * killall5 now skips kernel threads
238 * Inittab entries with both 'S' and other runlevels were broken.
239 Fix by Bryan Kadzban <bryan@kadzban.is-a-geek.net>
240 * Changed initreq.h to be more flexible and forwards-compatible.
241 * You can now through /dev/initctl set environment variables in
242 init that will be inherited by its children. For now, only
243 variables prefixed with INIT_ can be set and the maximum is
244 16 variables. There's also a length limit due to the size
245 of struct init_request, so it should be safe from abuse.
246 * Option -P and -H to shutdown set INIT_HALT=POWERDOWN and
247 INIT_HALT=HALT as environment variables as described above
248 * Add "mountpoint" utility.
249 * Slightly better algorithm in killall5.c:pidof()

262 * Fixed warts in dowall.c ("Dmitry V. Levin" <ldv@altlinux.org>)
263 * Fix init.c::spawn(). The "f" variable was used both as file descriptor
264 and waitpid(2) return code. In certain circumstances, this leads to
265 TIOCSCTTY with wrong file descriptor (Vladimir N. Oleynik).

438 sysvinit (2.74-1) unstable; urgency=low
439
440 * Should compile with glibc 1.99 :)
441 * Change behaviour of reboot(1) and halt(1) so that the default when
442 the runlevel can't be determined is to call shutdown.
443 * Added re-exec patch from Al Viro (21 Feb 1998):
444 'U' flag added to telinit. It forces init to re-exec itself
445 (passing its state through exec, certainly).
446 May be useful for smoother (heh) upgrades.
447 24 Feb 1998, AV:
448 did_boot made global and added to state - thanks, Miquel.
449 Yet another file descriptors leak - close state pipe if
450 re_exec fails.

460 sysvinit (2.73-1) unstable; urgency=low
461
462 * Use siginterrupt, now that system calls are restarted by default.
463 Main symptom was that the sulogin timeout didn't work but there
464 might have been more hidden problems.
465 * Kill process immidiately if turned off in inittab
466 * Fixed sulogin check on tty arg.
467 * Use strerror() instead of sys_errlist
468 * wall now supports a '-n' option to suppress [most of] the banner.
469 Debian doesn't use sysvinit's wall, but apparently Redhat does.
470 * Add '-F' (forcefsck) option to shutdown
471 * Close and reopen /dev/initctl on SIGUSR1 (mainly for a /dev in ram)

487 * Only say "no more processes left in runlevel x" once
488 * Fix race condition with SIGCHLD in spawn()
489 (thanks to Alon Ziv <alonz@CS.Technion.AC.IL>)
490 * Compress all manpages (missed 2)
491 * Compiled for libc6

543 * Fixed dowall.c not to exit when getpwuid() fails and uid == 0.
544 * Fixed init panic'ing on empty lines in /etc/inittab
545 * Changed default PATH to include /usr/local/sbin
546 * Set /dev/console as controlling terminal for sysinit,bootwait,wait,powerwait
547 This allows using ^C to interrupt some parts of eg the boot process.

689 2.50 14-Feb-1994
690 - Ignores unknown command line arguments.
691 - Modelled more after the "real" sysVinit
692 - Lots of changes all over the place.
693 (like showing runlevel in "ps" listing, logging
694 runlevel into utmp file etc)
695 - now using "reliable" signals instead of V7 style.
696 - Updated all scripts. Examples are in two directories:
697 etc (normal) and etc-sysv (sysv style scripts).
698 - runlevel 0 = halt, 1 = single user, 6 = reboot.
699 - added support for serial console.
700 - updated Propaganda, manpages.
701 - added shutdown access control.
702
703 2.4 24-May-93
704 - Send out the official version into the world as
705 SysVinit-2.4.tar.z.
706
707 2.4g 15-May-93
708 - Changed init to really catch SIGPWR 'cause we
709 hooked up an UPS to the Linux machine. The
710 keyword for catching the TreeFingerSalute is
711 now "ctrlaltdel" instead of "power{wait,fail}".
712
713 2.4a 22-Apr-93
714 - Fixed last to reckognize BSD style wtmp logging.
715 - Changed init to write wtmp records that are
716 SysV compliant but are also reckognized by the
717 BSD last. Added a '+' option to the 'process'
718 field of inittab, for getties that want to do
719 their own utmp/wtmp housekeeping (kludge!).
720 - Now accepts a runlevel on the command line,
721 and reckognizes the 'auto' argument. (Sets the
722 environment variable AUTOBOOT to YES)
723
724 2.2.3 24-Mar-93
725 - Ripped out the 'leave' action. To difficult, and
726 unneeded.
727 - Going single user now kills _all_ processes.
728 - Added '-t secs' option to all commands.
729 - This version is stable enough to post.
730
731 2.2 02-Mar-93
732 - Made wait()'s asynchronous
733 - Changed whole thing to one big state machine
734 - Now using 'pseudo levels' # & * for SYSINIT & BOOT
735 - Added a new type of 'action', called leave. This
736 process will be executed when the system goes from a
737 runlevel specified in it's runlevel field to a
738 level that's not. Nice to bring down NFS and the like.
739
740 2.1 28-Jan-93
741 - Fixed a bug with 'boot' and 'once'.
742 - Check 'initdefault' for validity.
743 - Reckognizes "single" as command line argument.
744 - Retries execvp with 'sh -c exec ..' if command
745 is a shell script. (shouldn't execvp do this?)
746 - Added patches to use syslog if defined.
747
748 2.0 08-Dec-92
749 - Rewrote the code totally, so started with a new
750 version number.
751 - Dropped Minix support, this code now is Linux - specific.
752 - With TEST switch on, this init & telinit can
753 run standalone for test purposes.
754
755 1.3, 05-Jul-92
756 - Got a 386, so installed Linux. Added 'soft' reboot
757 to be default under linux. Fixed some typos.
758
759 1.2, 16-Jun-92
760 - Bugreport from Michael Haardt ; removed deadlock
761 and added 'waitpid' instead of 'wait' for SYSV.
762
763 1.1, 30-Apr-92
764 - Read manual wrong: there is no 'action' field called
765 process, but all entries are of type process. Every
766 'process' get exec'ed by /bin/sh -c 'exec command'.
767 - Rapidly respawning processes are caught in the act.
768 - _SYSV support is really Linux support,
769 done by poe@daimi.aau.dk on 25-Mar-92.
770
771 1.0, 01-Feb-92
772 - Initial version, very primitive for the Minix
773 operating system. Required some mods. to the
774 kernel.
775
