4 * Do not forget room for last NULL of new environment (was
5 local bug 35866)
6 * Handle deleted binaries in pidof (was local bug #34992)
7 * Allow init to delete extra environment variables (was local bug
8 #35858)
9 * Avoid that init double environment variables for its childs
10 (was local bug #35855)
11 * Remove man-db tag for encoding for canonical man
12 * Sulogin: try to detect the real device(s) used for the system console
13 /dev/console if but only if /dev/console is used. On Linux this can
14 be more than one device, e.g. a serial line as well as a virtual
15 console as well as a simple printer.
16 * Fix counting message lines in wall. Patch from Petr Lautrbach.
17 * Fix bad printf conversion specifier in wall. Patch from S├ębastien Luttringer.
18 * Add patches from Openwall project. Thanks goes to Solar Designer.
19 * Add code to detect the system consoles with the help of the
20 new /proc/consoles files of linux kernel 2.6.38+
21 * Try to make utmpdump IPv6 valid, change based on suggestion from
22 Navdeep Bhatia (see local bug #32429)
23 * Fix signal and alarm handling based on the patch from Florent Viard.
24 (was local bug #32304)
25 * Add fix for Redhat bug #573346: last incorrectly displays IPv6
26 addresses (was local bug #29497)
27 * Correct fix for Debian bug #547073: use IUTF8 flag if defined
28 and if already set to make sure the utf-8 flag is not cleared
29 from the tty. Patch from Samuel Thibault.
30 * Include limits.h in killall.c to enforce definition of PATH_MAX
31 * Fix sysvinit bug #29758 Linker invocation should not contain
32 headers. Change based on patch from Elias Pipping.
33 * Add fix for Debian bug #580272: use return value 1 of
34 is_selinux_enabled() to determine if SELinux is enabled,
35 otherwise initialize SELinux and load the policy. Patch from
36 Petter Reinholdtsen.
37 * Make quotes visible in example of the manual page of fstab-decode
38 * Sulogin: enforce reconnection of stdin/stdout/stderr if a device
39 was specified.
40 * Sulogin: if zero is read at reading the passwd guess it's done.
41 * Sulogin: respect byte order that is do not mix chars and ints
42 * Shutdown: use PATH_DEFAULT as suggested by Paul Arthur in local bug #36101
43 * Killall5/pidof: handle strange names of executables (local bug #36252)
44 * Sulogin: be aware the crypt(3) may fail (local bug #36313)
45
46 [ Petter Reinholdtsen ]
47 * Next release will be 2.89dsf.
48 * Add #ifdef in bootlogd.c to avoid gcc warnings about unused
49 variable on non-linux platforms.
50 * Only set the VSWTC field for termios in init if it is available,
51 to get the source building on FreeBSD.
52 * Add some code to be able to detect programs even as user with
53 kernel 3.0 and above
54 * Improve message printed when signaling processes to stop.
55 Patch from Matias A. Fonzo at the dragora project.
56 * Rename internal functions warn() and shutdown() in the shutdown
57 binary to avoid surprising dynamic library name resolution
58 conflict with NSS modules. Patch from Richard Tollerton.
59 * Try harder to find libcrypt.*, even if there is no static library
60 available. Also look in /usr/lib/*/ for the library, to handle
61 Debian multiarch systems. Based on patch from Andrew Gregory.
62 * Adjust included headers to be compatible with the musl C
63 library. Patch from Matias A. Fonzo and Dragora.
64 * Move dovoid() macro from #ifdef__GLIBC__ to #ifdef __linux__,
65 to match the condutions of the place where it is used. Thanks
66 to Matias A. Fonzo for noticing.
67 * Define _XOPEN_SOURCE when building to get crypt() from <unistd.h>
68 instead of using <crypt.h> in sulogin.c, to get the source building
69 with the musl C library.
70 * Use sysconf(_SC_SYMLOOP_MAX) instead of MAXSYMLINKS. If sysconf
71 returns an error, fall back to MAXSYMLINKS on platforms that
72 define it. Fixes build on Hurd. Patch from Justus Winter and
73 Debian.
74 * Adjust makefile to make it easier to link all binaries statically.
75 Patch from Matias A. Fonzo and Dragora.

81 [ Petter Reinholdtsen ]
82 * Mention new home on Savannah in README.
83 * Revert change from Fedora/RedHat where the now obsolete command
84 INIT_CMD_CHANGECONS was introduced. Based on feedback and patch
85 from Bill Nottingham.

87 before files are copied into them.
88 * Simplify build rules, based on patch from Mike Frysinger and Gentoo.
89 * Fix minor bug in optimizing of argument parsing. Based on
90 report from jakemus on freshmeat.
91 * Add casts to get rid of compiler warning about signed/unsigned issues.
92 * Change tty handling in init to make sure the UTF-8 flag is not cleared
93 on boot. Patch from Samuel Thibault.
94 * Add Makefile in toplevel directory.
95 * Print usage information when shutdown is used by non-root user.
96 Patch from Mike Frysinger and Gentoo.
97 * Sync shutdown manual page and usage information. Patch from Mike
98 Frysinger and Gentoo.
99 * Fix race condition in utmp writing. Patch from Gil Kloepfer via
100 Mike Frysinger and Gentoo.

102 correct device, to handle terminal devices for example in /dev/pty/.
103 Patch from Debian.
104 * Make sure bootlogd findpty() returns an error value when it fails to
105 find a usable pty. Patch from Rob Leslie via Debian.
106 * Make sure bootlogd fflush() every line, even if asked not to flush
107 to disk using fdatasync(). Patch from Scott Gifford via Debian.
108 * Add compatibility code to handle old path "/etc/powerstatus" for a
109 while.
110 * Incude definition for MNT_DETACH which is missing in older GNU libc
111 headers.
112 * Do not strip binaries before installing them, to make it easier to
113 get binaries with debug information installed.
114
115 [ Werner Fink ]
116 * Add the comment from Andrea Arcangeli about the correct
117 place of setting the default childhandler within spawn().
118 * Make sure that newline is printed out for last(1) even
119 if an utmp record entry is truncated.
120 * Check if utmp not only exists but also is writable and delay
121 writing out of the utmp runlevel record if utmp is not writable.
122 * Be able to find libcrypt also on 64 bit based architectures.
123 * Add option -w to the last command to display the full user and
124 domain names in the output. Patch from Petr Lautrbach.
125 * Add a manual page for utmpdump as this tool is sometimes
126 very useful even if not intended for normal use.
127 * Use paths.h macros for wall
128 * Change path "/etc/powerstatus" to "/var/run/powerstatus"
129 * Detected also removable block devices at halt/reboot to be able
130 to flush data and send them the ATA standby command. This should
131 avoid data loss on USB sticks and other removable block devices.
132 * Flush block devices on halt/reboot if not done by the kernel.
133 * Set SHELL to /bin/sh in the environmant of shutdown.
134 * Retry to write out shutdown messages if interrupted.
135 * pidof/killall5 - make omit pid list a dynamic one.
136 * pidof - provide '-n' to skip stat(2) syscall on network based FS.
137 * init - avoid compiler warnings
138 * init - initialize console by using the macros from ttydefaults.h
139 * init - add the possiblity to ignore further interrupts from keyboard
140 * init - add the possiblity to set sane terminal line settings
141 * sulogin - add the possibility to reset the terminal io
142 * Fix some minor problems
143 * init - enable is_selinux_enabled() to detect selinuxfs
144 * Add fix for Debian bug #536574 -- Can be enabled by -DACCTON_OFF
145 * Add helper program fstab-decode to make it easier to handle
146 /etc/mtab content. Patch by Miloslav Trmac and Fedora.
147 * Add fix for Debian bug #335023 - Make sure TERM is set on FreeBSD.
148 * Add fix for Debian bug #374038 - Make it clear that shutdown -c can
149 only cancel a waiting shutdown, not an active one.
150 * Add note to pidof manual page about the use of readlink(2). Patch by
151 Bill Nottingham and Fedora.
152 * Add PAM patch contrib/notify-pam-dead.patch based on Debian bug
153 #68621, which will add PAM support for programs spawned by init on
154 the console like sulogin. Based on patch by Topi Miettinen. This
155 patch is not applied by default yet while we review its
156 usefullness. It is only helpful for session handling, as sulogin
157 do not use and will not use a PAM conv() function. The current
158 sulogin is able to handle DES as well as MD5, SHA, and Blowfish
159 encrypted passwords due using getpwnam(3).
160 * Move utmp/wtmp before the execvp() in spawn() to be sure to
161 use the correct pid even on a controlling tty
162 * Remaining problem is that the pid of the second fork() for
163 getting a controlling tty isn't that reported by spawn()
164 * Re-enable writting utmp/wtmp for boot scripts
165 * Extend sulogin to support additional encryption algorithms
166 * Re-enable maintenance message of sulogin
167 * Enable the sulogin fallback password check to handle MD5, SHA, and
168 Blowfish encrypted passwords in case of getpwnam(3) fails.
169 * sulogin picking the SELinux context was broken. Patch by Daniel Walsh

178 * Update address of FSF in the COPYRIGHT file.
179 * Document in halt(8) that -n might not disable all syncing.
180 Patch by Bill Nottingham and Fedora
181 * Adjust output from "last -x". In reboot lines, print endpoint
182 of uptime too. In shutdown lines print downtimes rather than
183 the time between downs. Fix typo in string compare in last.c.
184 Patch by Thomas Hood.
185 * Improve handling of IPv6 addresses in last. Patch from Fedora.
186 * Document last options in usage information, previously only
187 mentioned in the manual page.

189 of the short form provided by default. Patch from Olaf Dabrunz
190 and SuSe.
191 * Adjust build rules to make sure the installed binaries
192 are stripped.
193 * Increase the compiler warning level when building.
194 * Fix utmp/wtmp updating on 64-bit platforms. Patch by Bill
195 Nottingham and Fedora.

197 Patch from Christian 'Dr. Disk' Hechelmann and Fedora.
198 * Make sure to use execle and no execl when passing environment to
199 the new process. Patch from RedHat.
200 * Correct init to make sure the waiting status is preserved across
201 re-exec. Patch from RedHat.
202 * Correct init to avoid race condition when starting programs during
203 boot. Patch from SuSe.
204 * Allow 'telinit u' in runlevels 0 and 6. Patch from Thomas Hood.

206 Thomas Hood.
207 * Improve error message from init if fork() fail. Patch found in Suse.
208 * Add support for SE Linux capability handling. Patch from Manoj
209 Srivastava, adjusted to avoid aborting if SE policy was loaded in
210 the initrd with patch from Bill Nottingham and Fedora.
211 * Add -c option to pidof for only matching processes with the same
212 process root. Ignore -c when not running as root. Patch from
213 Thomas Woerner and Fedora.
214 * Adjust init to terminate argv0 with one 0 rather than two so that
215 process name can be one character longer. Patch by Kir Kolyshkin.
216 * Make sure bootlogd exit with non-error exit code when forking of
217 the child successfully.
218 * Add bootlogd option -s to make it possible to control the use of

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

225 value is usable on re-exec. Patch from Thomas Hood.
226 * Add usleep in killall5 after killing processes, to force the kernel
227 to reschedule. Patch from SuSe.
228 * Modify pidof to not print empty line if no pid was found.

233 Patch from Bill Nottingham and Fedora.
234 * Modify init to shut down IDE, SCSI and SATA disks properly. Patches
235 from Sebastian Reichelt, Werner Fink and SuSe.

237 string lengths. Patch from SuSe.
238 * Change wall to make halt include hostname in output.
239 * Change killall to avoid killing init by mistake. Patch from SuSe.
240 * Change killall5 to use the exit value to report if it found any
241 processes to kill. Patch from Debian.

245 * Add references between killall5 and pidof manual pages. Patch from Debian.
246 * Modify killall to work better with user space file system, by
247 changing cwd to /proc when stopping and killing processes, and
248 avoiding stat() when the value isn't used. Also, lock process
249 pages in memory to avoid paging when user processes are stopped.
250 Patch from Debian and Goswin von Brederlow with changes by Kel
251 Modderman.
252 * Change shutdown to only accept flags -H and -P with the -h flag,

262
263 * Fixed up bootlogd to read /proc/cmdline. Also keep an internal
264 linebuffer to process \r, \t and ^H. It is becoming useable.
265 * Applied trivial OWL patches
266 * Block signals in syslog(), since syslog() is not re-entrant
267 (James Olin Oden <joden@malachi.lee.k12.nc.us>, redhat bug #97534)
268 * Minor adjustements so that sysvinit compiles on the Hurd
269 * killall5 now skips kernel threads
270 * Inittab entries with both 'S' and other runlevels were broken.
271 Fix by Bryan Kadzban <bryan@kadzban.is-a-geek.net>
272 * Changed initreq.h to be more flexible and forwards-compatible.
273 * You can now through /dev/initctl set environment variables in
274 init that will be inherited by its children. For now, only
275 variables prefixed with INIT_ can be set and the maximum is
276 16 variables. There's also a length limit due to the size
277 of struct init_request, so it should be safe from abuse.
278 * Option -P and -H to shutdown set INIT_HALT=POWERDOWN and
279 INIT_HALT=HALT as environment variables as described above
280 * Add "mountpoint" utility.
281 * Slightly better algorithm in killall5.c:pidof()
282 * Added some patches from fedora-core (halt-usage, last -t,
283 sulogin-message, user-console)

289 * Add IPv6 support in last(1)
290 * Sulogin: even if the root password is empty, ask for a password-
291 otherwise there is no way to set a timeout.
292 * Removed support for ioctl.save.
293 * Turned of support for /etc/initrunlvl and /var/run/initrunlvl
294 * Fixed warts in dowall.c ("Dmitry V. Levin" <ldv@altlinux.org>)
295 * Fix init.c::spawn(). The "f" variable was used both as file descriptor
296 and waitpid(2) return code. In certain circumstances, this leads to
297 TIOCSCTTY with wrong file descriptor (Vladimir N. Oleynik).
298 * Fix fd leak in sulogin (Dmitry V. Levin).
299 * More error checking in all wait() calling code (Dmitry V. Levin).
300 * Fix argv[] initialization in spawn() (Dmitry V. Levin).

446 * Rewrote last.c to be much more memory friendly and correct,
447 thanks to Nick Andrew <nick@zeta.org.au> and
448 David Parrish <dparrish@zeta.org.au>
449 * Fixes bugs:
450 #21616: sysvinit: sulogin thinks md5 root password is bad
451 #21765: sysvinit: Typo in `killall5.c'
452 #21775: sysvinit: sysvinit does not support MD5 hashed passwords
453 #21990: /usr/bin/last: unnecessary memset and off-by-one bug
454 #22084: sysvinit 2.74-4: SIGPWR missing on sparc
455 #21900: init, powerfail events, and shutdown.allow
456 #21702: init 0 does not work as expected...
457 #21728: sysvinit: Typo in `init.c'
458 #22363: sysvinit: discrepance btw. manpage and /sbin/init

464 * Add -o option to last to process libc5 utmp files.
465 * Buffer overflow fixed in init.c (not very serious; only exploitable
466 by root). Thanks to Chris Evans <chris@ferret.lmh.ox.ac.uk>

470 sysvinit (2.74-1) unstable; urgency=low
471
472 * Should compile with glibc 1.99 :)
473 * Change behaviour of reboot(1) and halt(1) so that the default when
474 the runlevel can't be determined is to call shutdown.
475 * Added re-exec patch from Al Viro (21 Feb 1998):
476 'U' flag added to telinit. It forces init to re-exec itself
477 (passing its state through exec, certainly).
478 May be useful for smoother (heh) upgrades.
479 24 Feb 1998, AV:
480 did_boot made global and added to state - thanks, Miquel.
481 Yet another file descriptors leak - close state pipe if
482 re_exec fails.

493
494 * Use siginterrupt, now that system calls are restarted by default.
495 Main symptom was that the sulogin timeout didn't work but there
496 might have been more hidden problems.
497 * Kill process immidiately if turned off in inittab
498 * Fixed sulogin check on tty arg.
499 * Use strerror() instead of sys_errlist
500 * wall now supports a '-n' option to suppress [most of] the banner.
501 Debian doesn't use sysvinit's wall, but apparently Redhat does.
502 * Add '-F' (forcefsck) option to shutdown
503 * Close and reopen /dev/initctl on SIGUSR1 (mainly for a /dev in ram)

520 * Fix race condition with SIGCHLD in spawn()
521 (thanks to Alon Ziv <alonz@CS.Technion.AC.IL>)
522 * Compress all manpages (missed 2)
523 * Compiled for libc6

577 * Changed default PATH to include /usr/local/sbin
578 * Set /dev/console as controlling terminal for sysinit,bootwait,wait,powerwait

720
721 2.50 14-Feb-1994
722 - Ignores unknown command line arguments.
723 - Modelled more after the "real" sysVinit
724 - Lots of changes all over the place.
725 (like showing runlevel in "ps" listing, logging
726 runlevel into utmp file etc)
727 - now using "reliable" signals instead of V7 style.
728 - Updated all scripts. Examples are in two directories:
729 etc (normal) and etc-sysv (sysv style scripts).
730 - runlevel 0 = halt, 1 = single user, 6 = reboot.
731 - added support for serial console.
732 - updated Propaganda, manpages.
733 - added shutdown access control.

737 SysVinit-2.4.tar.z.
738
739 2.4g 15-May-93
740 - Changed init to really catch SIGPWR 'cause we
741 hooked up an UPS to the Linux machine. The
742 keyword for catching the TreeFingerSalute is
743 now "ctrlaltdel" instead of "power{wait,fail}".
744
745 2.4a 22-Apr-93
746 - Fixed last to reckognize BSD style wtmp logging.
747 - Changed init to write wtmp records that are
748 SysV compliant but are also reckognized by the
749 BSD last. Added a '+' option to the 'process'
750 field of inittab, for getties that want to do
751 their own utmp/wtmp housekeeping (kludge!).
752 - Now accepts a runlevel on the command line,
753 and reckognizes the 'auto' argument. (Sets the
754 environment variable AUTOBOOT to YES)
755
756 2.2.3 24-Mar-93
757 - Ripped out the 'leave' action. To difficult, and
758 unneeded.
759 - Going single user now kills _all_ processes.

761 - This version is stable enough to post.
762
763 2.2 02-Mar-93
764 - Made wait()'s asynchronous
765 - Changed whole thing to one big state machine
766 - Now using 'pseudo levels' # & * for SYSINIT & BOOT
767 - Added a new type of 'action', called leave. This
768 process will be executed when the system goes from a
769 runlevel specified in it's runlevel field to a
770 level that's not. Nice to bring down NFS and the like.
771
772 2.1 28-Jan-93
773 - Fixed a bug with 'boot' and 'once'.
774 - Check 'initdefault' for validity.
775 - Reckognizes "single" as command line argument.
776 - Retries execvp with 'sh -c exec ..' if command
777 is a shell script. (shouldn't execvp do this?)
778 - Added patches to use syslog if defined.
779
780 2.0 08-Dec-92
781 - Rewrote the code totally, so started with a new
782 version number.
783 - Dropped Minix support, this code now is Linux - specific.
784 - With TEST switch on, this init & telinit can
785 run standalone for test purposes.
786
787 1.3, 05-Jul-92
788 - Got a 386, so installed Linux. Added 'soft' reboot
789 to be default under linux. Fixed some typos.
790
791 1.2, 16-Jun-92
792 - Bugreport from Michael Haardt ; removed deadlock
793 and added 'waitpid' instead of 'wait' for SYSV.
794
795 1.1, 30-Apr-92
796 - Read manual wrong: there is no 'action' field called
797 process, but all entries are of type process. Every
798 'process' get exec'ed by /bin/sh -c 'exec command'.
799 - Rapidly respawning processes are caught in the act.
800 - _SYSV support is really Linux support,
801 done by poe@daimi.aau.dk on 25-Mar-92.
802
803 1.0, 01-Feb-92
804 - Initial version, very primitive for the Minix
805 operating system. Required some mods. to the
806 kernel.
807
