3 [ Werner Fink ]
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

36 [ Petter Reinholdtsen ]
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.

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

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

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

172 Thomas Hood.
173 * Improve error message from init if fork() fail. Patch found in Suse.
174 * Add support for SE Linux capability handling. Patch from Manoj
175 Srivastava, adjusted to avoid aborting if SE policy was loaded in
176 the initrd with patch from Bill Nottingham and Fedora.
177 * Add -c option to pidof for only matching processes with the same
178 process root. Ignore -c when not running as root. Patch from
179 Thomas Woerner and Fedora.
180 * Adjust init to terminate argv0 with one 0 rather than two so that

186 * Add bootlogd option -c to tell it to create the log file if it does
187 not exist. Patch from Thomas Hood.
188 * Let bootlogd also look at ttyB* devices to work on HPPA. Patch

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

212 * Modify killall to work better with user space file system, by
213 changing cwd to /proc when stopping and killing processes, and
214 avoiding stat() when the value isn't used. Also, lock process
215 pages in memory to avoid paging when user processes are stopped.
216 Patch from Debian and Goswin von Brederlow with changes by Kel
217 Modderman.

228
229 * Fixed up bootlogd to read /proc/cmdline. Also keep an internal
230 linebuffer to process \r, \t and ^H. It is becoming useable.
231 * Applied trivial OWL patches
232 * Block signals in syslog(), since syslog() is not re-entrant
233 (James Olin Oden <joden@malachi.lee.k12.nc.us>, redhat bug #97534)
234 * Minor adjustements so that sysvinit compiles on the Hurd
235 * killall5 now skips kernel threads
236 * Inittab entries with both 'S' and other runlevels were broken.
237 Fix by Bryan Kadzban <bryan@kadzban.is-a-geek.net>
238 * Changed initreq.h to be more flexible and forwards-compatible.
239 * You can now through /dev/initctl set environment variables in
240 init that will be inherited by its children. For now, only
241 variables prefixed with INIT_ can be set and the maximum is
242 16 variables. There's also a length limit due to the size
243 of struct init_request, so it should be safe from abuse.
244 * Option -P and -H to shutdown set INIT_HALT=POWERDOWN and
245 INIT_HALT=HALT as environment variables as described above
246 * Add "mountpoint" utility.
247 * Slightly better algorithm in killall5.c:pidof()
248 * Added some patches from fedora-core (halt-usage, last -t,
249 sulogin-message, user-console)

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

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

436 sysvinit (2.74-1) unstable; urgency=low
437
438 * Should compile with glibc 1.99 :)
439 * Change behaviour of reboot(1) and halt(1) so that the default when
440 the runlevel can't be determined is to call shutdown.
441 * Added re-exec patch from Al Viro (21 Feb 1998):
442 'U' flag added to telinit. It forces init to re-exec itself
443 (passing its state through exec, certainly).
444 May be useful for smoother (heh) upgrades.
445 24 Feb 1998, AV:
446 did_boot made global and added to state - thanks, Miquel.
447 Yet another file descriptors leak - close state pipe if
448 re_exec fails.

458 sysvinit (2.73-1) unstable; urgency=low
459
460 * Use siginterrupt, now that system calls are restarted by default.
461 Main symptom was that the sulogin timeout didn't work but there
462 might have been more hidden problems.
463 * Kill process immidiately if turned off in inittab
464 * Fixed sulogin check on tty arg.
465 * Use strerror() instead of sys_errlist
466 * wall now supports a '-n' option to suppress [most of] the banner.
467 Debian doesn't use sysvinit's wall, but apparently Redhat does.
468 * Add '-F' (forcefsck) option to shutdown
469 * Close and reopen /dev/initctl on SIGUSR1 (mainly for a /dev in ram)

483 "Jonathan I. Kamens" <jik@kamens.brookline.ma.us>
484 * Fix halt and reboot runlevels 0 & 6 check.
485 * Only say "no more processes left in runlevel x" once
486 * Fix race condition with SIGCHLD in spawn()
487 (thanks to Alon Ziv <alonz@CS.Technion.AC.IL>)
488 * Compress all manpages (missed 2)
489 * Compiled for libc6
490 * Added poweroff patch by Roderich Schupp <rsch@ExperTeam.de>

540 * Also compiles and runs with GNU libc (and on the Alpha)
541 * Fixed dowall.c not to exit when getpwuid() fails and uid == 0.
542 * Fixed init panic'ing on empty lines in /etc/inittab
543 * Changed default PATH to include /usr/local/sbin
544 * Set /dev/console as controlling terminal for sysinit,bootwait,wait,powerwait
545 This allows using ^C to interrupt some parts of eg the boot process.
546 * Remove old symlink in /var/log/initlvl; let init check both
547 /var/log and /etc itself.

690 - Lots of changes all over the place.
691 (like showing runlevel in "ps" listing, logging
692 runlevel into utmp file etc)
693 - now using "reliable" signals instead of V7 style.
694 - Updated all scripts. Examples are in two directories:
695 etc (normal) and etc-sysv (sysv style scripts).
696 - runlevel 0 = halt, 1 = single user, 6 = reboot.
697 - added support for serial console.
698 - updated Propaganda, manpages.
699 - added shutdown access control.
700
701 2.4 24-May-93

703 SysVinit-2.4.tar.z.
704
705 2.4g 15-May-93
706 - Changed init to really catch SIGPWR 'cause we
707 hooked up an UPS to the Linux machine. The
708 keyword for catching the TreeFingerSalute is
709 now "ctrlaltdel" instead of "power{wait,fail}".
710
711 2.4a 22-Apr-93
712 - Fixed last to reckognize BSD style wtmp logging.
713 - Changed init to write wtmp records that are
714 SysV compliant but are also reckognized by the
715 BSD last. Added a '+' option to the 'process'
716 field of inittab, for getties that want to do
717 their own utmp/wtmp housekeeping (kludge!).
718 - Now accepts a runlevel on the command line,
719 and reckognizes the 'auto' argument. (Sets the
720 environment variable AUTOBOOT to YES)
721
722 2.2.3 24-Mar-93
723 - Ripped out the 'leave' action. To difficult, and
724 unneeded.
725 - Going single user now kills _all_ processes.

727 - This version is stable enough to post.
728
729 2.2 02-Mar-93
730 - Made wait()'s asynchronous
731 - Changed whole thing to one big state machine
732 - Now using 'pseudo levels' # & * for SYSINIT & BOOT
733 - Added a new type of 'action', called leave. This
734 process will be executed when the system goes from a
735 runlevel specified in it's runlevel field to a
736 level that's not. Nice to bring down NFS and the like.
737
738 2.1 28-Jan-93
739 - Fixed a bug with 'boot' and 'once'.
740 - Check 'initdefault' for validity.
741 - Reckognizes "single" as command line argument.
742 - Retries execvp with 'sh -c exec ..' if command
743 is a shell script. (shouldn't execvp do this?)
744 - Added patches to use syslog if defined.
745
746 2.0 08-Dec-92
747 - Rewrote the code totally, so started with a new
748 version number.
749 - Dropped Minix support, this code now is Linux - specific.
750 - With TEST switch on, this init & telinit can
751 run standalone for test purposes.
752
753 1.3, 05-Jul-92
754 - Got a 386, so installed Linux. Added 'soft' reboot
755 to be default under linux. Fixed some typos.
756
757 1.2, 16-Jun-92
758 - Bugreport from Michael Haardt ; removed deadlock
759 and added 'waitpid' instead of 'wait' for SYSV.
760
761 1.1, 30-Apr-92
762 - Read manual wrong: there is no 'action' field called
763 process, but all entries are of type process. Every
764 'process' get exec'ed by /bin/sh -c 'exec command'.
765 - Rapidly respawning processes are caught in the act.
766 - _SYSV support is really Linux support,
767 done by poe@daimi.aau.dk on 25-Mar-92.
768
769 1.0, 01-Feb-92
770 - Initial version, very primitive for the Minix
771 operating system. Required some mods. to the
772 kernel.
773
