23 from Bill Nottingham.
24 * Adjust makefile to make sure the install directories are created
25 before files are copied into them.
26 * Simplify build rules, based on patch from Mike Frysinger and Gentoo.
27 * Fix minor bug in optimizing of argument parsing. Based on
28 report from jakemus on freshmeat.
29 * Add casts to get rid of compiler warning about signed/unsigned issues.
30 * Change tty handling in init to make sure the UTF-8 flag is not cleared
31 on boot. Patch from Samuel Thibault.
32 * Add Makefile in toplevel directory.
33 * Print usage information when shutdown is used by non-root user.
34 Patch from Mike Frysinger and Gentoo.

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

115 * Document -e and -t options for telinit in init(8).
116 * Update address of FSF in the COPYRIGHT file.
117 * Document in halt(8) that -n might not disable all syncing.

121 the time between downs. Fix typo in string compare in last.c.
122 Patch by Thomas Hood.
123 * Improve handling of IPv6 addresses in last. Patch from Fedora.
124 * Document last options in usage information, previously only
125 mentioned in the manual page.

127 of the short form provided by default. Patch from Olaf Dabrunz
128 and SuSe.
129 * Adjust build rules to make sure the installed binaries
130 are stripped.
131 * Increase the compiler warning level when building.
132 * Fix utmp/wtmp updating on 64-bit platforms. Patch by Bill
133 Nottingham and Fedora.

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

181 some pids during shutdown. Based on patch from Colin Watson and
182 Ubuntu.
183 * Add references between killall5 and pidof manual pages. Patch from Debian.
184 * Modify killall to work better with user space file system, by
185 changing cwd to /proc when stopping and killing processes, and
186 avoiding stat() when the value isn't used. Also, lock process
187 pages in memory to avoid paging when user processes are stopped.
188 Patch from Debian and Goswin von Brederlow with changes by Kel
189 Modderman.
190 * Change shutdown to only accept flags -H and -P with the -h flag,
191 and document this requirement in the manual page.

200
201 * Fixed up bootlogd to read /proc/cmdline. Also keep an internal
202 linebuffer to process \r, \t and ^H. It is becoming useable.
203 * Applied trivial OWL patches
204 * Block signals in syslog(), since syslog() is not re-entrant
205 (James Olin Oden <joden@malachi.lee.k12.nc.us>, redhat bug #97534)
206 * Minor adjustements so that sysvinit compiles on the Hurd
207 * killall5 now skips kernel threads
208 * Inittab entries with both 'S' and other runlevels were broken.
209 Fix by Bryan Kadzban <bryan@kadzban.is-a-geek.net>
210 * Changed initreq.h to be more flexible and forwards-compatible.
211 * You can now through /dev/initctl set environment variables in
212 init that will be inherited by its children. For now, only
213 variables prefixed with INIT_ can be set and the maximum is
214 16 variables. There's also a length limit due to the size
215 of struct init_request, so it should be safe from abuse.
216 * Option -P and -H to shutdown set INIT_HALT=POWERDOWN and
217 INIT_HALT=HALT as environment variables as described above
218 * Add "mountpoint" utility.
219 * Slightly better algorithm in killall5.c:pidof()
220 * Added some patches from fedora-core (halt-usage, last -t,
221 sulogin-message, user-console)

226
227 * Add IPv6 support in last(1)
228 * Sulogin: even if the root password is empty, ask for a password-
229 otherwise there is no way to set a timeout.
230 * Removed support for ioctl.save.
231 * Turned of support for /etc/initrunlvl and /var/run/initrunlvl
232 * Fixed warts in dowall.c ("Dmitry V. Levin" <ldv@altlinux.org>)
233 * Fix init.c::spawn(). The "f" variable was used both as file descriptor
234 and waitpid(2) return code. In certain circumstances, this leads to
235 TIOCSCTTY with wrong file descriptor (Vladimir N. Oleynik).
236 * Fix fd leak in sulogin (Dmitry V. Levin).
237 * More error checking in all wait() calling code (Dmitry V. Levin).
238 * Fix argv[] initialization in spawn() (Dmitry V. Levin).
239 * Change strncpy to strncat in most places (Dmitry V. Levin).

247 * Add -i/--init command line flag to init - this tells init
248 'behave as system init even if you're not PID#1'. Useful for
249 testing in chroot/jail type environments.

411 * Change behaviour of reboot(1) and halt(1) so that the default when
412 the runlevel can't be determined is to call shutdown.
413 * Added re-exec patch from Al Viro (21 Feb 1998):
414 'U' flag added to telinit. It forces init to re-exec itself
415 (passing its state through exec, certainly).
416 May be useful for smoother (heh) upgrades.

440 * Add '-F' (forcefsck) option to shutdown
441 * Close and reopen /dev/initctl on SIGUSR1 (mainly for a /dev in ram)

519 /var/log and /etc itself.

663 (like showing runlevel in "ps" listing, logging
664 runlevel into utmp file etc)
665 - now using "reliable" signals instead of V7 style.
666 - Updated all scripts. Examples are in two directories:
667 etc (normal) and etc-sysv (sysv style scripts).
668 - runlevel 0 = halt, 1 = single user, 6 = reboot.
669 - added support for serial console.
670 - updated Propaganda, manpages.
671 - added shutdown access control.

675 SysVinit-2.4.tar.z.
676
677 2.4g 15-May-93
678 - Changed init to really catch SIGPWR 'cause we
679 hooked up an UPS to the Linux machine. The
680 keyword for catching the TreeFingerSalute is
681 now "ctrlaltdel" instead of "power{wait,fail}".
682
683 2.4a 22-Apr-93
684 - Fixed last to reckognize BSD style wtmp logging.
685 - Changed init to write wtmp records that are
686 SysV compliant but are also reckognized by the
687 BSD last. Added a '+' option to the 'process'
688 field of inittab, for getties that want to do
689 their own utmp/wtmp housekeeping (kludge!).
690 - Now accepts a runlevel on the command line,
691 and reckognizes the 'auto' argument. (Sets the
692 environment variable AUTOBOOT to YES)
693
694 2.2.3 24-Mar-93
695 - Ripped out the 'leave' action. To difficult, and
696 unneeded.

699 - This version is stable enough to post.
700
701 2.2 02-Mar-93
702 - Made wait()'s asynchronous
703 - Changed whole thing to one big state machine
704 - Now using 'pseudo levels' # & * for SYSINIT & BOOT
705 - Added a new type of 'action', called leave. This
706 process will be executed when the system goes from a
707 runlevel specified in it's runlevel field to a
708 level that's not. Nice to bring down NFS and the like.
709
710 2.1 28-Jan-93
711 - Fixed a bug with 'boot' and 'once'.
712 - Check 'initdefault' for validity.
713 - Reckognizes "single" as command line argument.
714 - Retries execvp with 'sh -c exec ..' if command
715 is a shell script. (shouldn't execvp do this?)
716 - Added patches to use syslog if defined.
717
718 2.0 08-Dec-92
719 - Rewrote the code totally, so started with a new
720 version number.

722 - With TEST switch on, this init & telinit can
723 run standalone for test purposes.
724
725 1.3, 05-Jul-92
726 - Got a 386, so installed Linux. Added 'soft' reboot
727 to be default under linux. Fixed some typos.
728
729 1.2, 16-Jun-92
730 - Bugreport from Michael Haardt ; removed deadlock
731 and added 'waitpid' instead of 'wait' for SYSV.
732
733 1.1, 30-Apr-92
734 - Read manual wrong: there is no 'action' field called
735 process, but all entries are of type process. Every
736 'process' get exec'ed by /bin/sh -c 'exec command'.
737 - Rapidly respawning processes are caught in the act.
738 - _SYSV support is really Linux support,
739 done by poe@daimi.aau.dk on 25-Mar-92.
740
741 1.0, 01-Feb-92
742 - Initial version, very primitive for the Minix
743 operating system. Required some mods. to the
744 kernel.
745
