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.
34 * Do not strip binaries before installing them, to make it easier to
35 get binaries with debug information installed.
36
37 [ Werner Fink ]
38 * Add the comment from Andrea Arcangeli about the correct
39 place of setting the default childhandler within spawn().
40 * Make sure that newline is printed out for last(1) even
41 if an utmp record entry is truncated.
42 * Check if utmp not only exists but also is writable and delay
43 writing out of the utmp runlevel record if utmp is not writable.
44 * Be able to find libcrypt also on 64 bit based architectures.
45 * Add option -w to the last command to display the full user and
46 domain names in the output. Patch from Petr Lautrbach.
47 * Add a manual page for utmpdump as this tool is sometimes
48 very useful even if not intended for normal use.
49 * Use paths.h macros for wall
50 * Change path "/etc/powerstatus" to "/var/run/powerstatus"
51 * Detected also removable block devices at halt/reboot to be able
52 to flush data and send them the ATA standby command. This should
53 avoid data loss on USB sticks and other removable block devices.
54 * Flush block devices on halt/reboot if not done by the kernel.
55 * Set SHELL to /bin/sh in the environmant of shutdown.
56 * Retry to write out shutdown messages if interrupted.
57 * pidof/killall5 - make omit pid list a dynamic one.
58 * pidof - provide '-n' to skip stat(2) syscall on network based FS.
59 * init - avoid compiler warnings
60 * init - initialize console by using the macros from ttydefaults.h
61 * init - add the possiblity to ignore further interrupts from keyboard
62 * init - add the possiblity to set sane terminal line settings
63 * sulogin - add the possibility to reset the terminal io
64 * Fix some minor problems
65 * init - enable is_selinux_enabled() to detect selinuxfs
66 * Add fix for Debian bug #536574 -- Can be enabled by -DACCTON_OFF
67 * Add helper program fstab-decode to make it easier to handle
68 /etc/mtab content. Patch by Miloslav Trmac and Fedora.
69 * Add fix for Debian bug #335023 - Make sure TERM is set on FreeBSD.
70 * Add fix for Debian bug #374038 - Make it clear that shutdown -c can
71 only cancel a waiting shutdown, not an active one.
72 * Add note to pidof manual page about the use of readlink(2). Patch by
73 Bill Nottingham and Fedora.
74 * Add PAM patch contrib/notify-pam-dead.patch based on Debian bug
75 #68621, which will add PAM support for programs spawned by init on
76 the console like sulogin. Based on patch by Topi Miettinen. This
77 patch is not applied by default yet while we review its
78 usefullness. It is only helpful for session handling, as sulogin
79 do not use and will not use a PAM conv() function. The current
80 sulogin is able to handle DES as well as MD5, SHA, and Blowfish
81 encrypted passwords due using getpwnam(3).
82 * Move utmp/wtmp before the execvp() in spawn() to be sure to
83 use the correct pid even on a controlling tty
84 * Remaining problem is that the pid of the second fork() for
85 getting a controlling tty isn't that reported by spawn()
86 * Re-enable writting utmp/wtmp for boot scripts
87 * Extend sulogin to support additional encryption algorithms
88 * Re-enable maintenance message of sulogin
89 * Enable the sulogin fallback password check to handle MD5, SHA, and
90 Blowfish encrypted passwords in case of getpwnam(3) fails.
91 * sulogin picking the SELinux context was broken. Patch by Daniel Walsh

96
97 * Fix typos and do minor updates in the manual pages.
98 * Correct section of mountpoint(1).
99 * Document -e and -t options for telinit in init(8).
100 * Update address of FSF in the COPYRIGHT file.
101 * Document in halt(8) that -n might not disable all syncing.
102 Patch by Bill Nottingham and Fedora
103 * Adjust output from "last -x". In reboot lines, print endpoint
104 of uptime too. In shutdown lines print downtimes rather than
105 the time between downs. Fix typo in string compare in last.c.
106 Patch by Thomas Hood.
107 * Improve handling of IPv6 addresses in last. Patch from Fedora.
108 * Document last options in usage information, previously only
109 mentioned in the manual page.
110 * Add new option -F to last, to output full date string instead
111 of the short form provided by default. Patch from Olaf Dabrunz
112 and SuSe.
113 * Adjust build rules to make sure the installed binaries
114 are stripped.
115 * Increase the compiler warning level when building.
116 * Fix utmp/wtmp updating on 64-bit platforms. Patch by Bill
117 Nottingham and Fedora.
118 * Avoid unchecked return value from malloc() in utmpdump.
119 Patch from Christian 'Dr. Disk' Hechelmann and Fedora.
120 * Make sure to use execle and no execl when passing environment to
121 the new process. Patch from RedHat.
122 * Correct init to make sure the waiting status is preserved across
123 re-exec. Patch from RedHat.
124 * Correct init to avoid race condition when starting programs during
125 boot. Patch from SuSe.
126 * Allow 'telinit u' in runlevels 0 and 6. Patch from Thomas Hood.
127 * Change install rules to make pidof an absolute symlink. Patch from
128 Thomas Hood.
129 * Improve error message from init if fork() fail. Patch found in Suse.
130 * Add support for SE Linux capability handling. Patch from Manoj
131 Srivastava, adjusted to avoid aborting if SE policy was loaded in
132 the initrd with patch from Bill Nottingham and Fedora.
133 * Add -c option to pidof for only matching processes with the same
134 process root. Ignore -c when not running as root. Patch from
135 Thomas Woerner and Fedora.
136 * Adjust init to terminate argv0 with one 0 rather than two so that
137 process name can be one character longer. Patch by Kir Kolyshkin.
138 * Make sure bootlogd exit with non-error exit code when forking of
139 the child successfully.
140 * Add bootlogd option -s to make it possible to control the use of
141 fdatasync(). Patch from Thomas Hood.
142 * Add bootlogd option -c to tell it to create the log file if it does
143 not exist. Patch from Thomas Hood.
144 * Let bootlogd also look at ttyB* devices to work on HPPA. Patch
145 from Thomas Hood.
146 * Change init to use setenv() instead of putenv, make sure the PATH
147 value is usable on re-exec. Patch from Thomas Hood.
148 * Add usleep in killall5 after killing processes, to force the kernel
149 to reschedule. Patch from SuSe.
150 * Modify pidof to not print empty line if no pid was found.
151 * Modify init and sulogin to fix emergency mode's tty, making sure ^C
152 and ^Z work when booting with 'emergency' kernel option. Patch from
153 Samuel Thibault.
154 * Modify init to allow some time for failed opens to resolve themselves.
155 Patch from Bill Nottingham and Fedora.
156 * Modify init to shut down IDE, SCSI and SATA disks properly. Patches
157 from Sebastian Reichelt, Werner Fink and SuSe.
158 * Modify wall to use UT_LINESIZE from <utmp.h> instead of hardcoded
159 string lengths. Patch from SuSe.
160 * Change wall to make halt include hostname in output.
161 * Change killall to avoid killing init by mistake. Patch from SuSe.
162 * Change killall5 to use the exit value to report if it found any
163 processes to kill. Patch from Debian.
164 * Add option -o opmitpid to killall5, to make it possible to skip
165 some pids during shutdown. Based on patch from Colin Watson and
166 Ubuntu.
167 * Add references between killall5 and pidof manual pages. Patch from Debian.
168 * Modify killall to work better with user space file system, by
169 changing cwd to /proc when stopping and killing processes, and
170 avoiding stat() when the value isn't used. Also, lock process
171 pages in memory to avoid paging when user processes are stopped.
172 Patch from Debian and Goswin von Brederlow with changes by Kel
173 Modderman.
174 * Change shutdown to only accept flags -H and -P with the -h flag,
175 and document this requirement in the manual page.

177 Patch by Dale R. Worley and Fedora.
178 * Let sulogin fall back to the staticly linked /bin/sash if both roots
179 shell and /bin/sh fail to execute.

183 sysvinit (2.86) cistron; urgency=low
184
185 * Fixed up bootlogd to read /proc/cmdline. Also keep an internal
186 linebuffer to process \r, \t and ^H. It is becoming useable.
187 * Applied trivial OWL patches
188 * Block signals in syslog(), since syslog() is not re-entrant
189 (James Olin Oden <joden@malachi.lee.k12.nc.us>, redhat bug #97534)
190 * Minor adjustements so that sysvinit compiles on the Hurd
191 * killall5 now skips kernel threads
192 * Inittab entries with both 'S' and other runlevels were broken.
193 Fix by Bryan Kadzban <bryan@kadzban.is-a-geek.net>
194 * Changed initreq.h to be more flexible and forwards-compatible.
195 * You can now through /dev/initctl set environment variables in
196 init that will be inherited by its children. For now, only
197 variables prefixed with INIT_ can be set and the maximum is
198 16 variables. There's also a length limit due to the size
199 of struct init_request, so it should be safe from abuse.
200 * Option -P and -H to shutdown set INIT_HALT=POWERDOWN and
201 INIT_HALT=HALT as environment variables as described above
202 * Add "mountpoint" utility.
203 * Slightly better algorithm in killall5.c:pidof()
204 * Added some patches from fedora-core (halt-usage, last -t,
205 sulogin-message, user-console)

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

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

346 For backwards compatibility when you try to boot a 2.0.x kernel
347 with a linux > 2.1.70 /dev/console device.
348 * Change src/Makefile for non-debian systems (mainly, RedHat)
349 * Try to create /dev/initctl if not present; check every time to see
350 if the dev/ino of /dev/initctl has changed and re-open it. This should
351 help devfs a bit.
352 * Send SIGUSR1 to init at bootup to let it re-open /dev/initctl;

395 * Change behaviour of reboot(1) and halt(1) so that the default when
396 the runlevel can't be determined is to call shutdown.
397 * Added re-exec patch from Al Viro (21 Feb 1998):
398 'U' flag added to telinit. It forces init to re-exec itself
399 (passing its state through exec, certainly).
400 May be useful for smoother (heh) upgrades.
401 24 Feb 1998, AV:
402 did_boot made global and added to state - thanks, Miquel.
403 Yet another file descriptors leak - close state pipe if
404 re_exec fails.

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

651 etc (normal) and etc-sysv (sysv style scripts).

659 SysVinit-2.4.tar.z.
660
661 2.4g 15-May-93

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

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