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

178 complete. Added code to (hopefully) keep 2nd thread running after install.
179 Patch from zahna for extra arguments to the kernel. Patch from zahna to add
180 get_eth_info() function. Remove most of content in amd64ArchTemplate and
181 make it inherit from x86Archtemplate. kernel_args -> bootloader_kernel_args
182
183 28 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>

185 when unpacking tarball.
186

196
197 25 Mar 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
198 changed InstallProfile to remove is_uri check on kernel, stage, and portage
199 URIs. The blank uri check has been commented out.
200 ripped out error checking of set_services. this is done by _add_to_runlevel.
201
202 25 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
203 set_stage_tarball_uri() doesn't raise an exception on a blank string.
204

208
209 23 Mar 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
210 small changes to setup_network_post. moved adding to runlevel of net.x to

212
213 23 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
214 minor fix (hopefully) to livecd-kernel code. Removed call to mkvardb in
215 livecd-kernel code as it's now done by catalyst. Switch _emerge() call to
216 spawn() call in livecd-kernel code to pass environment variables.
217 livecd-kernel code pulls PKGDIR and PORTAGE_TMPDIR from make.conf info in
218 the install profile if available.
219
220 23 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
221 Added code to build_kernel() and emerge_kernel_sources() in ArchTemplate
222 to handle installing the livecd kernel into the new system.
223
224 22 Mar 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
225 should emerge hotplug and coldplug before adding them to runlevel.
226
227 21 Mar 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
228 took chroot out of grub_install command.
229
230 21 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
231 Changed chroot wrapper code in spawn() to write the wrapper the python way
232 instead of the bash way to avoid quote conflicts. Added
233 'logfile=self._compile_logfile' to a number of spawn() calls. Added new
234 hash_password() function to GLIUtility. Remove command to 'rm /tmp/spawn.sh'
235 as it breaks the piping.
236
237 20 Mar 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
238 Added the amd64ArchitectureTemplate, mostly a copy of x86 without lilo.
239
240 20 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
241 Added _get_packages_to_emerge() to GLIArchitectureTemplate and calls in
242 stage1() and stage2(). Added 'origminor' parameter to GLIStorageDevice and
243 GLIInstallProfile.
244
245 19 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
246 Fixed a couple bugs in add_netmount() in GLIInstallProfile. spawn() outputs
247 to the actual tty8 with display_on_tty8 flag. Compile output logfile moved
248 into /mnt/gentoo in prepare_chroot()
249
250 18 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
251 Add sigunmask.c contributed by d_m (on freenode) to counteract python's
252 retarted behavior regarding threads and signals. Add code to convert MB/%/*
253 to start/end sectors
254
255 17 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
256 Add 2>&1 to cmd in spawn()
257
258 16 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
259 Modified GLIUtility.exitsuccess() to work with return value from
260 commands.getstatusoutput instead of os.waitpid(). spawn() automatically
261 creates wrapper script for commands run inside chroot so multiple commands
262 and redirection can be used. Change exitsuccess() back. Added 'chmod a+x'
263 for the generated script from spawn()
264
265 16 Mar 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
266 Removed default values for stage tarball URI and portage tree URI from
267 InstallProfile. These should be set by the FEs. also added services step to
268 ArchTemplate and coldplug/hotplug runlevels to the genkernel step.
269 Possibly fixed CC DHCP bug with -n. (thx agaffney)
270
271 14 Mar 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>

275 Switched spawn() over to commands.getstatusoutput() instead of fork/waitpid
276
277 1 Mar 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
278 Fixed a bunch of true -> True typos. lots of em
279 only write new resolv.conf if there are dns servers listed.
280
281 1 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
282 Commented out 'display_on_tty8=True' in start_portmap()
283
284 18 Feb 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
285 added progress bar to dialogfe and fix logger bug in ArchTemplate.

309 Also did some cleanups of old commented lines.
310
311 1 Feb 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
312 Changed tty8 output to a fifo. Minor GLIStorageDevice fix thanks to BenUrban.
313 Undo change with fix. Escaping fix in GLIStorageDevice.py
314
315 31 Jan 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>

335 partition() now waits until after it checks for partition flags before delete
336 the partitions :P
337
338 19 Jan 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
339 Updated TODO. swapon failure it temporarily not an error. swapon is an error

341 blank.
