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

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

252
253 25 Mar 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
254 changed InstallProfile to remove is_uri check on kernel, stage, and portage
255 URIs. The blank uri check has been commented out.
256 ripped out error checking of set_services. this is done by _add_to_runlevel.
257
258 25 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>

268
269 23 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
270 minor fix (hopefully) to livecd-kernel code. Removed call to mkvardb in
271 livecd-kernel code as it's now done by catalyst. Switch _emerge() call to
272 spawn() call in livecd-kernel code to pass environment variables.
273 livecd-kernel code pulls PKGDIR and PORTAGE_TMPDIR from make.conf info in
274 the install profile if available.
275
276 23 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
277 Added code to build_kernel() and emerge_kernel_sources() in ArchTemplate
278 to handle installing the livecd kernel into the new system.
279
280 22 Mar 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
281 should emerge hotplug and coldplug before adding them to runlevel.
282
283 21 Mar 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
284 took chroot out of grub_install command.
285
286 21 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
287 Changed chroot wrapper code in spawn() to write the wrapper the python way
288 instead of the bash way to avoid quote conflicts. Added
289 'logfile=self._compile_logfile' to a number of spawn() calls. Added new
290 hash_password() function to GLIUtility. Remove command to 'rm /tmp/spawn.sh'
291 as it breaks the piping.
292
293 20 Mar 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
294 Added the amd64ArchitectureTemplate, mostly a copy of x86 without lilo.
295
296 20 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
297 Added _get_packages_to_emerge() to GLIArchitectureTemplate and calls in
298 stage1() and stage2(). Added 'origminor' parameter to GLIStorageDevice and
299 GLIInstallProfile.
300
301 19 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
302 Fixed a couple bugs in add_netmount() in GLIInstallProfile. spawn() outputs
303 to the actual tty8 with display_on_tty8 flag. Compile output logfile moved
304 into /mnt/gentoo in prepare_chroot()
305
306 18 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
307 Add sigunmask.c contributed by d_m (on freenode) to counteract python's
308 retarted behavior regarding threads and signals. Add code to convert MB/%/*
309 to start/end sectors
310
311 17 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
312 Add 2>&1 to cmd in spawn()
313
314 16 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
315 Modified GLIUtility.exitsuccess() to work with return value from
316 commands.getstatusoutput instead of os.waitpid(). spawn() automatically
317 creates wrapper script for commands run inside chroot so multiple commands
318 and redirection can be used. Change exitsuccess() back. Added 'chmod a+x'
319 for the generated script from spawn()
320
321 16 Mar 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
322 Removed default values for stage tarball URI and portage tree URI from
323 InstallProfile. These should be set by the FEs. also added services step to
324 ArchTemplate and coldplug/hotplug runlevels to the genkernel step.
325 Possibly fixed CC DHCP bug with -n. (thx agaffney)
326
327 14 Mar 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>

332
333 1 Mar 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
334 Fixed a bunch of true -> True typos. lots of em
335 only write new resolv.conf if there are dns servers listed.
336
337 1 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
338 Commented out 'display_on_tty8=True' in start_portmap()
339
340 18 Feb 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>

365 Also did some cleanups of old commented lines.
366
367 1 Feb 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
368 Changed tty8 output to a fifo. Minor GLIStorageDevice fix thanks to BenUrban.
369 Undo change with fix. Escaping fix in GLIStorageDevice.py
370

392 the partitions :P
393
394 19 Jan 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
395 Updated TODO. swapon failure it temporarily not an error. swapon is an error
