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

226
227 25 Mar 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
228 changed InstallProfile to remove is_uri check on kernel, stage, and portage
229 URIs. The blank uri check has been commented out.

242
243 23 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
244 minor fix (hopefully) to livecd-kernel code. Removed call to mkvardb in
245 livecd-kernel code as it's now done by catalyst. Switch _emerge() call to
246 spawn() call in livecd-kernel code to pass environment variables.
247 livecd-kernel code pulls PKGDIR and PORTAGE_TMPDIR from make.conf info in
248 the install profile if available.
249
250 23 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
251 Added code to build_kernel() and emerge_kernel_sources() in ArchTemplate
252 to handle installing the livecd kernel into the new system.
253
254 22 Mar 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
255 should emerge hotplug and coldplug before adding them to runlevel.
256
257 21 Mar 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
258 took chroot out of grub_install command.
259
260 21 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
261 Changed chroot wrapper code in spawn() to write the wrapper the python way
262 instead of the bash way to avoid quote conflicts. Added
263 'logfile=self._compile_logfile' to a number of spawn() calls. Added new
264 hash_password() function to GLIUtility. Remove command to 'rm /tmp/spawn.sh'
265 as it breaks the piping.
266
267 20 Mar 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
268 Added the amd64ArchitectureTemplate, mostly a copy of x86 without lilo.
269
270 20 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
271 Added _get_packages_to_emerge() to GLIArchitectureTemplate and calls in
272 stage1() and stage2(). Added 'origminor' parameter to GLIStorageDevice and
273 GLIInstallProfile.
274
275 19 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
276 Fixed a couple bugs in add_netmount() in GLIInstallProfile. spawn() outputs
277 to the actual tty8 with display_on_tty8 flag. Compile output logfile moved
278 into /mnt/gentoo in prepare_chroot()
279
280 18 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
281 Add sigunmask.c contributed by d_m (on freenode) to counteract python's
282 retarted behavior regarding threads and signals. Add code to convert MB/%/*
283 to start/end sectors
284
285 17 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
286 Add 2>&1 to cmd in spawn()
287
288 16 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
289 Modified GLIUtility.exitsuccess() to work with return value from
290 commands.getstatusoutput instead of os.waitpid(). spawn() automatically
291 creates wrapper script for commands run inside chroot so multiple commands
292 and redirection can be used. Change exitsuccess() back. Added 'chmod a+x'
293 for the generated script from spawn()
294
295 16 Mar 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
296 Removed default values for stage tarball URI and portage tree URI from
297 InstallProfile. These should be set by the FEs. also added services step to
298 ArchTemplate and coldplug/hotplug runlevels to the genkernel step.
299 Possibly fixed CC DHCP bug with -n. (thx agaffney)
300
301 14 Mar 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>

306
307 1 Mar 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
308 Fixed a bunch of true -> True typos. lots of em
309 only write new resolv.conf if there are dns servers listed.
310
311 1 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
312 Commented out 'display_on_tty8=True' in start_portmap()
313

334 so that the installer can continue.
335

338 Second, added log lines to all templates. Some smaller fixes such as typos.
339 Also did some cleanups of old commented lines.
340
341 1 Feb 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
342 Changed tty8 output to a fifo. Minor GLIStorageDevice fix thanks to BenUrban.
343 Undo change with fix. Escaping fix in GLIStorageDevice.py
344
345 31 Jan 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>

366 the partitions :P
367
368 19 Jan 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
369 Updated TODO. swapon failure it temporarily not an error. swapon is an error
