78 point of logical is now adjusted along with start.
79
80 11 Apr 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
81 Finish overhaul of backend partitioning code. Fixed all bugs that stood in
82 the way of partitioning from a blank disk. Add int() around access to minor

108 29 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
109 Remove /tmp/compile_output.log and /var/log/install.log when install is
110 complete. Added code to (hopefully) keep 2nd thread running after install.
111 Patch from zahna for extra arguments to the kernel. Patch from zahna to add
112 get_eth_info() function. Remove most of content in amd64ArchTemplate and
113 make it inherit from x86Archtemplate. kernel_args -> bootloader_kernel_args
114
115 28 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
116 Added 'append_log=True' to all spawn() calls using logfile=. Append to log
117 when unpacking tarball.
118
119 28 Mar 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
120 rewrote filesystem_tools. looks like it works so ripping out all the old
121 filesystem_tools code.
122
123 26 Mar 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
124 Changed the print statements to logging in the partitioning BE code.
125 the logger may need to be imported to the x86archtemplate. unknown yet.

127 added a fix to the logger from BenUrban
128
129 25 Mar 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
130 changed InstallProfile to remove is_uri check on kernel, stage, and portage
131 URIs. The blank uri check has been commented out.
132 ripped out error checking of set_services. this is done by _add_to_runlevel.
133
134 25 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
135 set_stage_tarball_uri() doesn't raise an exception on a blank string.
136
137 24 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
138 GRP-ish quickpkg code pulls PKGDIR and PORTAGE_TMPDIR from make.conf info in
139 the install profile if available. Commented out spawn() debugging prints
140
141 23 Mar 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
142 small changes to setup_network_post. moved adding to runlevel of net.x to
143 after the device gets symlinked. added domainname runlevel command.
144
145 23 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
146 minor fix (hopefully) to livecd-kernel code. Removed call to mkvardb in
147 livecd-kernel code as it's now done by catalyst. Switch _emerge() call to
148 spawn() call in livecd-kernel code to pass environment variables.
149 livecd-kernel code pulls PKGDIR and PORTAGE_TMPDIR from make.conf info in
150 the install profile if available.
151
152 23 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
153 Added code to build_kernel() and emerge_kernel_sources() in ArchTemplate
154 to handle installing the livecd kernel into the new system.
155
156 22 Mar 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
157 should emerge hotplug and coldplug before adding them to runlevel.
158
159 21 Mar 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
160 took chroot out of grub_install command.
161
162 21 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
163 Changed chroot wrapper code in spawn() to write the wrapper the python way
164 instead of the bash way to avoid quote conflicts. Added
165 'logfile=self._compile_logfile' to a number of spawn() calls. Added new
166 hash_password() function to GLIUtility. Remove command to 'rm /tmp/spawn.sh'
167 as it breaks the piping.
168
169 20 Mar 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
170 Added the amd64ArchitectureTemplate, mostly a copy of x86 without lilo.
171
172 20 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
173 Added _get_packages_to_emerge() to GLIArchitectureTemplate and calls in
174 stage1() and stage2(). Added 'origminor' parameter to GLIStorageDevice and
175 GLIInstallProfile.
176
177 19 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
178 Fixed a couple bugs in add_netmount() in GLIInstallProfile. spawn() outputs
179 to the actual tty8 with display_on_tty8 flag. Compile output logfile moved
180 into /mnt/gentoo in prepare_chroot()
181
182 18 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
183 Add sigunmask.c contributed by d_m (on freenode) to counteract python's
184 retarted behavior regarding threads and signals. Add code to convert MB/%/*
185 to start/end sectors
186
187 17 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
188 Add 2>&1 to cmd in spawn()
189
190 16 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
191 Modified GLIUtility.exitsuccess() to work with return value from
192 commands.getstatusoutput instead of os.waitpid(). spawn() automatically
193 creates wrapper script for commands run inside chroot so multiple commands
194 and redirection can be used. Change exitsuccess() back. Added 'chmod a+x'
195 for the generated script from spawn()
196
197 16 Mar 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
198 Removed default values for stage tarball URI and portage tree URI from
199 InstallProfile. These should be set by the FEs. also added services step to
200 ArchTemplate and coldplug/hotplug runlevels to the genkernel step.
201 Possibly fixed CC DHCP bug with -n. (thx agaffney)
202
203 14 Mar 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
204 Small fix for setting the default gateway. Also added feature to dialogfe.
205
206 7 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
207 Switched spawn() over to commands.getstatusoutput() instead of fork/waitpid
208
209 1 Mar 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
210 Fixed a bunch of true -> True typos. lots of em
211 only write new resolv.conf if there are dns servers listed.
212
213 1 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
214 Commented out 'display_on_tty8=True' in start_portmap()
215
216 18 Feb 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>

229
230 6 Feb 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
231 check for dhcp in the network stuff and emerge it if it is.

241 Also did some cleanups of old commented lines.
242
243 1 Feb 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
244 Changed tty8 output to a fifo. Minor GLIStorageDevice fix thanks to BenUrban.
245 Undo change with fix. Escaping fix in GLIStorageDevice.py
246
247 31 Jan 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>

249 of adding them.
250

266 21 Jan 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
267 partition() now waits until after it checks for partition flags before delete
268 the partitions :P
269
270 19 Jan 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
271 Updated TODO. swapon failure it temporarily not an error. swapon is an error

273 blank.
274
275 19 Jan 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
