7 31 May 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
8 Not being able to fetch the stage tarball is now an exception. Chroot wrapper
9 passes along exit code. Fix typo in GLIStorageDevice causing mountopts to be
10 loaded from XML as ['mountopts']. Changed 'data' to 'self.data' in a few
11 places in GLIClientConfiguration.
12

40
41 17 May 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
42 Fixed bug in finishing_cleanup(). Fix a late-night coding error in

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

182 Patch from zahna for extra arguments to the kernel. Patch from zahna to add
183 get_eth_info() function. Remove most of content in amd64ArchTemplate and
184 make it inherit from x86Archtemplate. kernel_args -> bootloader_kernel_args
185
186 28 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>

199
200 25 Mar 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
201 changed InstallProfile to remove is_uri check on kernel, stage, and portage
202 URIs. The blank uri check has been commented out.
203 ripped out error checking of set_services. this is done by _add_to_runlevel.
204
205 25 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
206 set_stage_tarball_uri() doesn't raise an exception on a blank string.
207
208 24 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
209 GRP-ish quickpkg code pulls PKGDIR and PORTAGE_TMPDIR from make.conf info in

211
212 23 Mar 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
213 small changes to setup_network_post. moved adding to runlevel of net.x to
214 after the device gets symlinked. added domainname runlevel command.
215
216 23 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
217 minor fix (hopefully) to livecd-kernel code. Removed call to mkvardb in
218 livecd-kernel code as it's now done by catalyst. Switch _emerge() call to
219 spawn() call in livecd-kernel code to pass environment variables.
220 livecd-kernel code pulls PKGDIR and PORTAGE_TMPDIR from make.conf info in
221 the install profile if available.
222
223 23 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
224 Added code to build_kernel() and emerge_kernel_sources() in ArchTemplate
225 to handle installing the livecd kernel into the new system.
226
227 22 Mar 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
228 should emerge hotplug and coldplug before adding them to runlevel.
229
230 21 Mar 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
231 took chroot out of grub_install command.
232
233 21 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
234 Changed chroot wrapper code in spawn() to write the wrapper the python way
235 instead of the bash way to avoid quote conflicts. Added
236 'logfile=self._compile_logfile' to a number of spawn() calls. Added new
237 hash_password() function to GLIUtility. Remove command to 'rm /tmp/spawn.sh'
238 as it breaks the piping.
239
240 20 Mar 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
241 Added the amd64ArchitectureTemplate, mostly a copy of x86 without lilo.
242
243 20 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
244 Added _get_packages_to_emerge() to GLIArchitectureTemplate and calls in
245 stage1() and stage2(). Added 'origminor' parameter to GLIStorageDevice and
246 GLIInstallProfile.
247
248 19 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
249 Fixed a couple bugs in add_netmount() in GLIInstallProfile. spawn() outputs
250 to the actual tty8 with display_on_tty8 flag. Compile output logfile moved
251 into /mnt/gentoo in prepare_chroot()
252
253 18 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
254 Add sigunmask.c contributed by d_m (on freenode) to counteract python's
255 retarted behavior regarding threads and signals. Add code to convert MB/%/*
256 to start/end sectors
257
258 17 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
259 Add 2>&1 to cmd in spawn()
260
261 16 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
262 Modified GLIUtility.exitsuccess() to work with return value from
263 commands.getstatusoutput instead of os.waitpid(). spawn() automatically
264 creates wrapper script for commands run inside chroot so multiple commands
265 and redirection can be used. Change exitsuccess() back. Added 'chmod a+x'
266 for the generated script from spawn()
267
268 16 Mar 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
269 Removed default values for stage tarball URI and portage tree URI from
270 InstallProfile. These should be set by the FEs. also added services step to
271 ArchTemplate and coldplug/hotplug runlevels to the genkernel step.
272 Possibly fixed CC DHCP bug with -n. (thx agaffney)
273
274 14 Mar 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
275 Small fix for setting the default gateway. Also added feature to dialogfe.

278 Switched spawn() over to commands.getstatusoutput() instead of fork/waitpid
279
280 1 Mar 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
281 Fixed a bunch of true -> True typos. lots of em
282 only write new resolv.conf if there are dns servers listed.
283
284 1 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
285 Commented out 'display_on_tty8=True' in start_portmap()
286
287 18 Feb 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
288 added progress bar to dialogfe and fix logger bug in ArchTemplate.

312 Also did some cleanups of old commented lines.
313
314 1 Feb 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
315 Changed tty8 output to a fifo. Minor GLIStorageDevice fix thanks to BenUrban.
316 Undo change with fix. Escaping fix in GLIStorageDevice.py
317
318 31 Jan 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>

339 the partitions :P
340
341 19 Jan 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
342 Updated TODO. swapon failure it temporarily not an error. swapon is an error

344 blank.
