209 Finish overhaul of backend partitioning code. Fixed all bugs that stood in

239 Patch from zahna for extra arguments to the kernel. Patch from zahna to add
240 get_eth_info() function. Remove most of content in amd64ArchTemplate and

255 added a fix to the logger from BenUrban
256
257 25 Mar 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
258 changed InstallProfile to remove is_uri check on kernel, stage, and portage
259 URIs. The blank uri check has been commented out.
260 ripped out error checking of set_services. this is done by _add_to_runlevel.
261
262 25 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>

272
273 23 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
274 minor fix (hopefully) to livecd-kernel code. Removed call to mkvardb in
275 livecd-kernel code as it's now done by catalyst. Switch _emerge() call to
276 spawn() call in livecd-kernel code to pass environment variables.
277 livecd-kernel code pulls PKGDIR and PORTAGE_TMPDIR from make.conf info in
278 the install profile if available.
279
280 23 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
281 Added code to build_kernel() and emerge_kernel_sources() in ArchTemplate
282 to handle installing the livecd kernel into the new system.
283
284 22 Mar 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
285 should emerge hotplug and coldplug before adding them to runlevel.
286
287 21 Mar 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
288 took chroot out of grub_install command.
289
290 21 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
291 Changed chroot wrapper code in spawn() to write the wrapper the python way
292 instead of the bash way to avoid quote conflicts. Added
293 'logfile=self._compile_logfile' to a number of spawn() calls. Added new
294 hash_password() function to GLIUtility. Remove command to 'rm /tmp/spawn.sh'
295 as it breaks the piping.
296
297 20 Mar 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
298 Added the amd64ArchitectureTemplate, mostly a copy of x86 without lilo.
299
300 20 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
301 Added _get_packages_to_emerge() to GLIArchitectureTemplate and calls in
302 stage1() and stage2(). Added 'origminor' parameter to GLIStorageDevice and
303 GLIInstallProfile.
304
305 19 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
306 Fixed a couple bugs in add_netmount() in GLIInstallProfile. spawn() outputs
307 to the actual tty8 with display_on_tty8 flag. Compile output logfile moved
308 into /mnt/gentoo in prepare_chroot()
309
310 18 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
311 Add sigunmask.c contributed by d_m (on freenode) to counteract python's
312 retarted behavior regarding threads and signals. Add code to convert MB/%/*
313 to start/end sectors
314

317
318 16 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
319 Modified GLIUtility.exitsuccess() to work with return value from
320 commands.getstatusoutput instead of os.waitpid(). spawn() automatically
321 creates wrapper script for commands run inside chroot so multiple commands
322 and redirection can be used. Change exitsuccess() back. Added 'chmod a+x'
323 for the generated script from spawn()
324
325 16 Mar 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
326 Removed default values for stage tarball URI and portage tree URI from
327 InstallProfile. These should be set by the FEs. also added services step to
328 ArchTemplate and coldplug/hotplug runlevels to the genkernel step.
329 Possibly fixed CC DHCP bug with -n. (thx agaffney)
330
331 14 Mar 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>

336
337 1 Mar 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
338 Fixed a bunch of true -> True typos. lots of em
339 only write new resolv.conf if there are dns servers listed.
340
341 1 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
342 Commented out 'display_on_tty8=True' in start_portmap()
343
344 18 Feb 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>

369 Also did some cleanups of old commented lines.
370
371 1 Feb 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
372 Changed tty8 output to a fifo. Minor GLIStorageDevice fix thanks to BenUrban.
373 Undo change with fix. Escaping fix in GLIStorageDevice.py
374
