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

158 complete. Added code to (hopefully) keep 2nd thread running after install.
159 Patch from zahna for extra arguments to the kernel. Patch from zahna to add
160 get_eth_info() function. Remove most of content in amd64ArchTemplate and
161 make it inherit from x86Archtemplate. kernel_args -> bootloader_kernel_args
162
163 28 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
164 Added 'append_log=True' to all spawn() calls using logfile=. Append to log
165 when unpacking tarball.
166
167 28 Mar 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>

176
177 25 Mar 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
178 changed InstallProfile to remove is_uri check on kernel, stage, and portage
179 URIs. The blank uri check has been commented out.
180 ripped out error checking of set_services. this is done by _add_to_runlevel.
181
182 25 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>

192
193 23 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
194 minor fix (hopefully) to livecd-kernel code. Removed call to mkvardb in
195 livecd-kernel code as it's now done by catalyst. Switch _emerge() call to
196 spawn() call in livecd-kernel code to pass environment variables.
197 livecd-kernel code pulls PKGDIR and PORTAGE_TMPDIR from make.conf info in
198 the install profile if available.
199
200 23 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
201 Added code to build_kernel() and emerge_kernel_sources() in ArchTemplate
202 to handle installing the livecd kernel into the new system.
203
204 22 Mar 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
205 should emerge hotplug and coldplug before adding them to runlevel.
206
207 21 Mar 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
208 took chroot out of grub_install command.
209
210 21 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
211 Changed chroot wrapper code in spawn() to write the wrapper the python way
212 instead of the bash way to avoid quote conflicts. Added
213 'logfile=self._compile_logfile' to a number of spawn() calls. Added new
214 hash_password() function to GLIUtility. Remove command to 'rm /tmp/spawn.sh'
215 as it breaks the piping.
216
217 20 Mar 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
218 Added the amd64ArchitectureTemplate, mostly a copy of x86 without lilo.
219
220 20 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
221 Added _get_packages_to_emerge() to GLIArchitectureTemplate and calls in
222 stage1() and stage2(). Added 'origminor' parameter to GLIStorageDevice and
223 GLIInstallProfile.
224
225 19 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
226 Fixed a couple bugs in add_netmount() in GLIInstallProfile. spawn() outputs
227 to the actual tty8 with display_on_tty8 flag. Compile output logfile moved
228 into /mnt/gentoo in prepare_chroot()
229
230 18 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
231 Add sigunmask.c contributed by d_m (on freenode) to counteract python's
232 retarted behavior regarding threads and signals. Add code to convert MB/%/*
233 to start/end sectors
234
235 17 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
236 Add 2>&1 to cmd in spawn()
237
238 16 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
239 Modified GLIUtility.exitsuccess() to work with return value from
240 commands.getstatusoutput instead of os.waitpid(). spawn() automatically
241 creates wrapper script for commands run inside chroot so multiple commands
242 and redirection can be used. Change exitsuccess() back. Added 'chmod a+x'
243 for the generated script from spawn()
244
245 16 Mar 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
246 Removed default values for stage tarball URI and portage tree URI from
247 InstallProfile. These should be set by the FEs. also added services step to
248 ArchTemplate and coldplug/hotplug runlevels to the genkernel step.
249 Possibly fixed CC DHCP bug with -n. (thx agaffney)
250
251 14 Mar 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>

255 Switched spawn() over to commands.getstatusoutput() instead of fork/waitpid
256
257 1 Mar 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
258 Fixed a bunch of true -> True typos. lots of em
259 only write new resolv.conf if there are dns servers listed.
260
261 1 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
262 Commented out 'display_on_tty8=True' in start_portmap()
263
264 18 Feb 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
265 added progress bar to dialogfe and fix logger bug in ArchTemplate.

289 Also did some cleanups of old commented lines.
290
291 1 Feb 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
292 Changed tty8 output to a fifo. Minor GLIStorageDevice fix thanks to BenUrban.
293 Undo change with fix. Escaping fix in GLIStorageDevice.py
294
