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.

35 [ Petter Reinholdtsen ]
36 * Next release will be 2.89dsf.
37 * Add #ifdef in bootlogd.c to avoid gcc warnings about unused
38 variable on non-linux platforms.
39 * Only set the VSWTC field for termios in init if it is available,
40 to get the source building on FreeBSD.

52 before files are copied into them.
53 * Simplify build rules, based on patch from Mike Frysinger and Gentoo.
54 * Fix minor bug in optimizing of argument parsing. Based on
55 report from jakemus on freshmeat.
56 * Add casts to get rid of compiler warning about signed/unsigned issues.
57 * Change tty handling in init to make sure the UTF-8 flag is not cleared
58 on boot. Patch from Samuel Thibault.
59 * Add Makefile in toplevel directory.
60 * Print usage information when shutdown is used by non-root user.
61 Patch from Mike Frysinger and Gentoo.

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

162 Patch from Christian 'Dr. Disk' Hechelmann and Fedora.
163 * Make sure to use execle and no execl when passing environment to
164 the new process. Patch from RedHat.
165 * Correct init to make sure the waiting status is preserved across
166 re-exec. Patch from RedHat.
167 * Correct init to avoid race condition when starting programs during
168 boot. Patch from SuSe.
169 * Allow 'telinit u' in runlevels 0 and 6. Patch from Thomas Hood.
170 * Change install rules to make pidof an absolute symlink. Patch from
171 Thomas Hood.
172 * Improve error message from init if fork() fail. Patch found in Suse.
173 * Add support for SE Linux capability handling. Patch from Manoj
174 Srivastava, adjusted to avoid aborting if SE policy was loaded in
175 the initrd with patch from Bill Nottingham and Fedora.
176 * Add -c option to pidof for only matching processes with the same
177 process root. Ignore -c when not running as root. Patch from
178 Thomas Woerner and Fedora.
179 * Adjust init to terminate argv0 with one 0 rather than two so that
180 process name can be one character longer. Patch by Kir Kolyshkin.
181 * Make sure bootlogd exit with non-error exit code when forking of
182 the child successfully.
183 * Add bootlogd option -s to make it possible to control the use of
184 fdatasync(). Patch from Thomas Hood.
185 * Add bootlogd option -c to tell it to create the log file if it does
186 not exist. Patch from Thomas Hood.
187 * Let bootlogd also look at ttyB* devices to work on HPPA. Patch

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

210 * Add references between killall5 and pidof manual pages. Patch from Debian.
211 * Modify killall to work better with user space file system, by
212 changing cwd to /proc when stopping and killing processes, and
213 avoiding stat() when the value isn't used. Also, lock process
214 pages in memory to avoid paging when user processes are stopped.
215 Patch from Debian and Goswin von Brederlow with changes by Kel
216 Modderman.

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

257 * Removed support for ioctl.save.
258 * Turned of support for /etc/initrunlvl and /var/run/initrunlvl
259 * Fixed warts in dowall.c ("Dmitry V. Levin" <ldv@altlinux.org>)
260 * Fix init.c::spawn(). The "f" variable was used both as file descriptor
261 and waitpid(2) return code. In certain circumstances, this leads to
262 TIOCSCTTY with wrong file descriptor (Vladimir N. Oleynik).

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

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

484 * Only say "no more processes left in runlevel x" once
485 * Fix race condition with SIGCHLD in spawn()
486 (thanks to Alon Ziv <alonz@CS.Technion.AC.IL>)
487 * Compress all manpages (missed 2)
488 * Compiled for libc6
489 * Added poweroff patch by Roderich Schupp <rsch@ExperTeam.de>

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

689 - Lots of changes all over the place.
690 (like showing runlevel in "ps" listing, logging
691 runlevel into utmp file etc)
692 - now using "reliable" signals instead of V7 style.
693 - Updated all scripts. Examples are in two directories:
694 etc (normal) and etc-sysv (sysv style scripts).

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

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