44 before files are copied into them.
45 * Simplify build rules, based on patch from Mike Frysinger and Gentoo.
46 * Fix minor bug in optimizing of argument parsing. Based on
47 report from jakemus on freshmeat.

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

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

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

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

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

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

435 May be useful for smoother (heh) upgrades.
436 24 Feb 1998, AV:
437 did_boot made global and added to state - thanks, Miquel.
438 Yet another file descriptors leak - close state pipe if
439 re_exec fails.

451 * Use siginterrupt, now that system calls are restarted by default.
452 Main symptom was that the sulogin timeout didn't work but there
453 might have been more hidden problems.
454 * Kill process immidiately if turned off in inittab
455 * Fixed sulogin check on tty arg.
456 * Use strerror() instead of sys_errlist
457 * wall now supports a '-n' option to suppress [most of] the banner.
458 Debian doesn't use sysvinit's wall, but apparently Redhat does.
459 * Add '-F' (forcefsck) option to shutdown
460 * Close and reopen /dev/initctl on SIGUSR1 (mainly for a /dev in ram)

679 - Ignores unknown command line arguments.
680 - Modelled more after the "real" sysVinit
681 - Lots of changes all over the place.
682 (like showing runlevel in "ps" listing, logging
683 runlevel into utmp file etc)
684 - now using "reliable" signals instead of V7 style.
685 - Updated all scripts. Examples are in two directories:
686 etc (normal) and etc-sysv (sysv style scripts).
687 - runlevel 0 = halt, 1 = single user, 6 = reboot.
688 - added support for serial console.
689 - updated Propaganda, manpages.
690 - added shutdown access control.

694 SysVinit-2.4.tar.z.
695
696 2.4g 15-May-93
697 - Changed init to really catch SIGPWR 'cause we
698 hooked up an UPS to the Linux machine. The
699 keyword for catching the TreeFingerSalute is
700 now "ctrlaltdel" instead of "power{wait,fail}".
701
702 2.4a 22-Apr-93
703 - Fixed last to reckognize BSD style wtmp logging.
704 - Changed init to write wtmp records that are
705 SysV compliant but are also reckognized by the
706 BSD last. Added a '+' option to the 'process'
707 field of inittab, for getties that want to do
708 their own utmp/wtmp housekeeping (kludge!).
709 - Now accepts a runlevel on the command line,
710 and reckognizes the 'auto' argument. (Sets the
711 environment variable AUTOBOOT to YES)
712
713 2.2.3 24-Mar-93
714 - Ripped out the 'leave' action. To difficult, and
715 unneeded.

718 - This version is stable enough to post.
719
720 2.2 02-Mar-93
721 - Made wait()'s asynchronous
722 - Changed whole thing to one big state machine
723 - Now using 'pseudo levels' # & * for SYSINIT & BOOT
724 - Added a new type of 'action', called leave. This
725 process will be executed when the system goes from a
726 runlevel specified in it's runlevel field to a
727 level that's not. Nice to bring down NFS and the like.
728
729 2.1 28-Jan-93
730 - Fixed a bug with 'boot' and 'once'.
731 - Check 'initdefault' for validity.
732 - Reckognizes "single" as command line argument.
733 - Retries execvp with 'sh -c exec ..' if command
734 is a shell script. (shouldn't execvp do this?)
735 - Added patches to use syslog if defined.
736
737 2.0 08-Dec-92
738 - Rewrote the code totally, so started with a new
739 version number.
740 - Dropped Minix support, this code now is Linux - specific.
741 - With TEST switch on, this init & telinit can
742 run standalone for test purposes.
743
744 1.3, 05-Jul-92
745 - Got a 386, so installed Linux. Added 'soft' reboot
746 to be default under linux. Fixed some typos.
747
748 1.2, 16-Jun-92
749 - Bugreport from Michael Haardt ; removed deadlock
750 and added 'waitpid' instead of 'wait' for SYSV.
751
752 1.1, 30-Apr-92
753 - Read manual wrong: there is no 'action' field called
754 process, but all entries are of type process. Every
755 'process' get exec'ed by /bin/sh -c 'exec command'.
756 - Rapidly respawning processes are caught in the act.
757 - _SYSV support is really Linux support,
758 done by poe@daimi.aau.dk on 25-Mar-92.
759
760 1.0, 01-Feb-92
761 - Initial version, very primitive for the Minix
762 operating system. Required some mods. to the
763 kernel.
764
