6 from the tty. Patch from Samuel Thibault.
7 * Include limits.h in killall.c to enforce definition of PATH_MAX
8 * Fix sysvinit bug #29758 Linker invocation should not contain
9 headers. Change based on patch from Elias Pipping.
10 * Add fix for Debian bug #580272: use return value 1 of
11 is_selinux_enabled() to determine if SELinux is enabled,
12 otherwise initialize SELinux and load the policy. Patch from
13 Petter Reinholdtsen.

15 [ Petter Reinholdtsen ]
16 * Next release will be 2.89dsf.
17 * Add #ifdef in bootlogd.c to avoid gcc warnings about unused
18 variable on non-linux platforms.
19 * Only set the VSWTC field for termios in init if it is available,
20 to get the source building on FreeBSD.

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

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

122 * Document -e and -t options for telinit in init(8).
123 * Update address of FSF in the COPYRIGHT file.
124 * Document in halt(8) that -n might not disable all syncing.
125 Patch by Bill Nottingham and Fedora
126 * Adjust output from "last -x". In reboot lines, print endpoint
127 of uptime too. In shutdown lines print downtimes rather than
128 the time between downs. Fix typo in string compare in last.c.
129 Patch by Thomas Hood.
130 * Improve handling of IPv6 addresses in last. Patch from Fedora.
131 * Document last options in usage information, previously only
132 mentioned in the manual page.
133 * Add new option -F to last, to output full date string instead
134 of the short form provided by default. Patch from Olaf Dabrunz
135 and SuSe.
136 * Adjust build rules to make sure the installed binaries
137 are stripped.
138 * Increase the compiler warning level when building.
139 * Fix utmp/wtmp updating on 64-bit platforms. Patch by Bill
140 Nottingham and Fedora.

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

207
208 * Fixed up bootlogd to read /proc/cmdline. Also keep an internal
209 linebuffer to process \r, \t and ^H. It is becoming useable.
210 * Applied trivial OWL patches
211 * Block signals in syslog(), since syslog() is not re-entrant
212 (James Olin Oden <joden@malachi.lee.k12.nc.us>, redhat bug #97534)
213 * Minor adjustements so that sysvinit compiles on the Hurd
214 * killall5 now skips kernel threads
215 * Inittab entries with both 'S' and other runlevels were broken.
216 Fix by Bryan Kadzban <bryan@kadzban.is-a-geek.net>
217 * Changed initreq.h to be more flexible and forwards-compatible.
218 * You can now through /dev/initctl set environment variables in
219 init that will be inherited by its children. For now, only
220 variables prefixed with INIT_ can be set and the maximum is
221 16 variables. There's also a length limit due to the size
222 of struct init_request, so it should be safe from abuse.
223 * Option -P and -H to shutdown set INIT_HALT=POWERDOWN and
224 INIT_HALT=HALT as environment variables as described above
225 * Add "mountpoint" utility.
226 * Slightly better algorithm in killall5.c:pidof()
227 * Added some patches from fedora-core (halt-usage, last -t,
228 sulogin-message, user-console)

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

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

418 * Change behaviour of reboot(1) and halt(1) so that the default when
419 the runlevel can't be determined is to call shutdown.
420 * Added re-exec patch from Al Viro (21 Feb 1998):
421 'U' flag added to telinit. It forces init to re-exec itself
422 (passing its state through exec, certainly).
423 May be useful for smoother (heh) upgrades.

437 sysvinit (2.73-1) unstable; urgency=low
438
439 * Use siginterrupt, now that system calls are restarted by default.
440 Main symptom was that the sulogin timeout didn't work but there
441 might have been more hidden problems.
442 * Kill process immidiately if turned off in inittab
443 * Fixed sulogin check on tty arg.
444 * Use strerror() instead of sys_errlist
445 * wall now supports a '-n' option to suppress [most of] the banner.
446 Debian doesn't use sysvinit's wall, but apparently Redhat does.
447 * Add '-F' (forcefsck) option to shutdown
448 * Close and reopen /dev/initctl on SIGUSR1 (mainly for a /dev in ram)

481 * Added code for updwtmp() in utmp.c for glibc (2.0.3)
482 * Fixed all programs to use functions from utmp.c and getutent()
483 * Do not try to clean up utmp in init itself (Bug#9022)

516
517 * Skipped 2.65. A development 2.65 got out by accident and is apparently
518 being used..
519 * Also compiles and runs with GNU libc (and on the Alpha)
520 * Fixed dowall.c not to exit when getpwuid() fails and uid == 0.
521 * Fixed init panic'ing on empty lines in /etc/inittab
522 * Changed default PATH to include /usr/local/sbin
523 * Set /dev/console as controlling terminal for sysinit,bootwait,wait,powerwait
524 This allows using ^C to interrupt some parts of eg the boot process.
525 * Remove old symlink in /var/log/initlvl; let init check both
526 /var/log and /etc itself.

671 runlevel into utmp file etc)
672 - now using "reliable" signals instead of V7 style.
673 - Updated all scripts. Examples are in two directories:
674 etc (normal) and etc-sysv (sysv style scripts).

683
684 2.4g 15-May-93
685 - Changed init to really catch SIGPWR 'cause we
686 hooked up an UPS to the Linux machine. The
687 keyword for catching the TreeFingerSalute is
688 now "ctrlaltdel" instead of "power{wait,fail}".
689
690 2.4a 22-Apr-93
691 - Fixed last to reckognize BSD style wtmp logging.
692 - Changed init to write wtmp records that are
693 SysV compliant but are also reckognized by the
694 BSD last. Added a '+' option to the 'process'
695 field of inittab, for getties that want to do
696 their own utmp/wtmp housekeeping (kludge!).
697 - Now accepts a runlevel on the command line,
698 and reckognizes the 'auto' argument. (Sets the
699 environment variable AUTOBOOT to YES)
700
701 2.2.3 24-Mar-93
702 - Ripped out the 'leave' action. To difficult, and
703 unneeded.

706 - This version is stable enough to post.
707
708 2.2 02-Mar-93
709 - Made wait()'s asynchronous
710 - Changed whole thing to one big state machine
711 - Now using 'pseudo levels' # & * for SYSINIT & BOOT
712 - Added a new type of 'action', called leave. This
713 process will be executed when the system goes from a
714 runlevel specified in it's runlevel field to a
715 level that's not. Nice to bring down NFS and the like.
716
717 2.1 28-Jan-93
718 - Fixed a bug with 'boot' and 'once'.
719 - Check 'initdefault' for validity.
720 - Reckognizes "single" as command line argument.
721 - Retries execvp with 'sh -c exec ..' if command
722 is a shell script. (shouldn't execvp do this?)
723 - Added patches to use syslog if defined.
724
725 2.0 08-Dec-92
726 - Rewrote the code totally, so started with a new
727 version number.
728 - Dropped Minix support, this code now is Linux - specific.
729 - With TEST switch on, this init & telinit can
730 run standalone for test purposes.
731
732 1.3, 05-Jul-92
733 - Got a 386, so installed Linux. Added 'soft' reboot
734 to be default under linux. Fixed some typos.
735
736 1.2, 16-Jun-92
737 - Bugreport from Michael Haardt ; removed deadlock
738 and added 'waitpid' instead of 'wait' for SYSV.
739
740 1.1, 30-Apr-92
741 - Read manual wrong: there is no 'action' field called
742 process, but all entries are of type process. Every
743 'process' get exec'ed by /bin/sh -c 'exec command'.
744 - Rapidly respawning processes are caught in the act.
745 - _SYSV support is really Linux support,
746 done by poe@daimi.aau.dk on 25-Mar-92.
747
748 1.0, 01-Feb-92
749 - Initial version, very primitive for the Minix
750 operating system. Required some mods. to the
751 kernel.
752
