stabilize sys-apps/sysvinit-2.86-r10
Comment 1 Doug Goldstein (RETIRED) gentoo-dev 2007-12-19 15:08:29 UTC
spoke with Uberlord about this pkg and we should be good to go. robbat2 and I would prefer that all arches are on the same baselayout-1 version before we unmask baselayout-2 so that there's only 1 migration path rather then 2.
Comment 2 Ferris McCormick (RETIRED) gentoo-dev 2007-12-19 18:17:36 UTC
Stable for sparc.
Comment 3 Doug Goldstein (RETIRED) gentoo-dev 2007-12-19 20:34:44 UTC
amd64 stable
Comment 4 Alexey Maximov 2007-12-20 20:20:44 UTC
not stable with 
sys-apps/baselayout-2.0.0_rc6 inside VServer

it overriedes and files and broke guest OS in vserver

the files and should have simple checks inside like:

# If we are in a VPS, we don't need anything below here, because
#   1) we don't need (and by default can't) umount anything (VServer) or
#   2) the host utils take care of all umounting stuff (OpenVZ)

if [ "${RC_SYS}" = "VPS" ] ; then
               exit 0

see code from sys-apps/baselayout-2.0.0_rc6

currenty, latest sysvinit BROKE rebooting guest OS inside vservers

This package is masked and mixing hardmasked ~arch packages with stable packages is broken and unsupported.

Are you saying that this is a regression from 2.86-r8 to 2.86-r10? If -r8 had the same behavior then this is not a regression but a request for a feature change and as such belongs in it's own bug.
Comment 6 Alexey Maximov 2007-12-20 20:45:53 UTC
its NOT masked or hardmasked for vserver guests.
its default for any gentoo os running inside vserver
for VPS guests we havent any stable and supported baselayout, only latest is acceptible now.

many my friends got a troubles after auto-updating init.d dir (files has been autorewritten)

<Cardoe> !herd vserver
<jeeves> Cardoe: (vserver) chtekk, hollow
<Hollow> Cardoe: pong
<Cardoe> Hollow: should vserver users be using baselayout-2.0.0_rc6?
<Hollow> yes
<Cardoe> is there a regression between sysvinit-2.86-r8 and sysvinit-2.86-r10?
<Cardoe> bug #202790
<Hollow> *sigh* i told him, if he blindly overwrites config protected files he is on his own
<Hollow> vservers have a custom
<Hollow> and these custom files have a big warning in them, that you should never overwrite them

This is not a regression but a new feature request.
Comment 8 Benedikt Böhm (RETIRED) gentoo-dev 2007-12-20 21:19:52 UTC
i admit it's not that fat:

# gentoo init style needs this (and nothing else)
exit 0

but you shouldn't overwrite it nevertheless...

vservers sucking is not a reason to block stabilization
