6
7 20 Jun 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
8 Apply spawn() patch from #96644 (with minor changes).
9
10 20 Jun 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
11 More updates to GenDialog and gli-d.
12
13 19 Jun 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
14 Modify list_mirrors() to return a list of mirror URL/name pairs.
15
16 19 Jun 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
17 Adding gli-dialog.py. Updates to GenDialog. Added function to GLIUtility to
18 get subarch.
19
20 16 Jun 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
21 Backend partitioning will create disklabel is none exists. Installprofile
22 defaults to "" now instead of "msdos" for disklabel type. Fix for
23 mount_local_partitions() to remember device along with minor in the
24 parts_to_mount dict (closes #96319). mount_local_partitions() cleanups and
25 add else block to log unsupported netmount types to mount_network_shares()
26
27 15 Jun 2005; Robin H. Johnson <robbat2@gentoo.org>
28 src/GLIArchitectureTemplate.py:
29 Refactor kernel_compile common stuff, fix 2.4 build process.
30 src/fe/cli/clife.py:
31 Logging system.
32 src/GLIUtility.py, src/GLIStorageDevice.py:
33 Add comments about re-writes needed for boxes without sysfs.
34
35 15 Jun 2005; Robin H. Johnson <robbat2@gentoo.org>
36 src/GLIArchitectureTemplate.py:
37 2.4 support (pull version data from /usr/src/linux/Makefile), incl.
38 'make dep' call for custom compile. build_mode support for prepare-only and
39 none types completed. custom compile function chains shell functions in
40 spawned script, to allow for catching all errors.
41
42 15 Jun 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
43 fixed up build_kernel in ArchTemplate for build_mode as well as in dialogfe
44 and GenDialog. other gendialog updates as well. kernel updates untested.
45
46 14 Jun 2005; Robin H. Johnson <robbat2@gentoo.org>
47 src/GLIInstallProfile.py:
48 Change structure of etc-portage stuff. The serialization was broken before my
49 last commit, and I am the only person that's ever used it. The new schema is
50 as follows:
51 <etc-portage>
52 <file name="package.mask"/>
53 <file name="package.unmask">
54 <entry atom="sys-kernel/openmosix-sources"/>
55 </file>
56 <file name="package.use">
57 <entry atom="sys-libs/db">
58 -java
59 </entry>
60 <entry atom="dev-libs/cyrus-sasl">
61 -ldap
62 </entry>
63 </file>
64 </etc-portage>
65
66
67 13 Jun 2005; Robin H. Johnson <robbat2@gentoo.org>
68 src/GLIInstallProfile.py:
69 Add new entry for gli-profile/kernel-build-method item. Add missing
70 serialize_etc_portage (temporary). Make serialize_make_conf always print the
71 keys in the same order.
72
73 13 Jun 2005; Robin H. Johnson <robbat2@gentoo.org>
74 src/GLIArchitectureTemplate.py:
75 Clean up commenting used by _edit_config(), and fix bug where wrong comment
76 was repeatedly appended to make.conf.
77
78 13 Jun 2005; Robin H. Johnson <robbat2@gentoo.org>
79 src/GLIArchitectureTemplate.py:
80 Put some Linux-2.6 specific code under a if statement. Store list of
81 successfully mounted swap device for using swapoff. Add proper error checking
82 to install_packages and install_filesystem_tools. Fixed namespace conflicts on
83 'file'. Clean up some redundant code (thanks to pychecker).'
84
85 13 Jun 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
86 Fix typos: get_extended() instead of get_extended_partition(). Added
87 list_mirrors() and list_stage_tarballs_from_mirror() functions to GLIUtility.
88 Change _emerge("sync") call to direct call to spawn to avoid 'emerge -k sync'
89
90 12 Jun 2005; John N. Laliberte <allanonjl@gentoo.org>
91 GLIInstallProfile.py: add missing set for dhcp_options if a tuple is passed
92 in add_network_interface.
93
94 12 Jun 2005; Robin H. Johnson <robbat2@gentoo.org> src/GLIArchitectureTemplate.py:
95 ensure PORTAGE_TMPDIR/PORT_LOGDIR/PORTDIR_OVERLAY/PKGDIR exist prior to any
96 usage - this caused a failure for stage1/stage2 previously. swapoff for swap
97 space at end of install. Mount /dev, /dev/shm, /dev/pts and /sys during
98 prepare_chroot.
99
100 11 Jun 2005; Robin H. Johnson <robbat2@gentoo.org> +src/cli/clife.py,
101 +src/cli/README, +src/fe/installer-cli, +src/fe/installer-dialog,
102 +src/fe/installer-gtk:
103 Add new automated CLI frontend. Add scripts that are the intended means to
104 use each frontend.
105
106 11 Jun 2005; Robin H. Johnson <robbat2@gentoo.org>
107 src/GLIClientController.py:
108 Add null type to network config, for cases where the interface is already up
109 and should not be touched (netboot for example).
110
111 11 Jun 2005; Robin H. Johnson <robbat2@gentoo.org>
112 src/GLIArchitectureTemplate.py:
113 pcmcia is not a variable name for a call to _add_to_runlevel, it should be a
114 string!. Try to use binary packages if available by default.
115
116 11 Jun 2005; Robin H. Johnson <robbat2@gentoo.org>
117 src/GLIArchitectureTemplate.py:
118 More error checking for _add_to_runlevel, to ensure that the init script
119 actually exists before we try to add it. set_services phase must take place
120 after the package installation, otherwise the init scripts might not exist.
121 Find the correct init script for the cron and logging daemons, and add that
122 instead of the package atom.
123
124 11 Jun 2005; Robin H. Johnson <robbat2@gentoo.org>
125 src/GLIArchitectureTemplate.py:
126 Fix up _edit_config so that it works if the file doesn't already exist. Fix
127 usage of 'file' to 'contents' for the variable name, as it shadows
128 __builtin__.file.
129
130 11 Jun 2005; Robin H. Johnson <robbat2@gentoo.org>
131 src/GLIArchitectureTemplate.py:
132 Add MTA install code, and include MTA install phase. Ensure
133 PORT_LOGDIR/PORTDIR_OVERLAY are created in _emerge if needed. Add support
134 for 'none' kernel config for build_kernel phase. Put kernel_script in
135 /var/tmp instead of /root for build_kernel phase.
136
137 11 Jun 2005; Robin H. Johnson <robbat2@gentoo.org> src/GLIInstallProfile.py:
138 Rename mta variables to match syslog/cron variables.
139
140 11 Jun 2005; Robin H. Johnson <robbat2@gentoo.org>
141 src/GLIArchitectureTemplate.py, src/templates/x86ArchitectureTemplate.py,
142 src/.cvsignore, src/fe/dialog/.cvsignore, src/fe/gtk/.cvsignore,
143 src/fe/net/client/.cvsignore, src/fe/net/server/.cvsignore,
144 src/templates/.cvsignore, src/tests/.cvsignore:
145 Refactor partition formatting again to include error checking. Allow 'none'
146 for kernel and bootloader specifications. Add .cvsignore files for .py[co].
147
148 11 Jun 2005; Robin H. Johnson <robbat2@gentoo.org>

155
156 11 Jun 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
157 Move /tmp/spawn.sh and /tmp/post-install to /var/tmp since that should always
158 be executable.
159
160 10 Jun 2005; Scott Myron <samyron@gentoo.org>
161 Fixed one of the FIXME's in the ClientConfiguration. There is now some
162 error checking when you call set_architecture_template.
163
164 10 Jun 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
165 moved the mkfsopts input to the partition options menu instead of the during
166 the creation process. updated GenDialog to say it supports reiserfs v3.
167
168 9 Jun 2005; Robin H. Johnson <robbat2@gentoo.org> src/GLIInstallProfile.py,

171 Add support for other partition types to dialogfe.
172 Fix all usages of int(possible_big_number) to long(possible_bit_number) to

405
406 25 Mar 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
407 changed InstallProfile to remove is_uri check on kernel, stage, and portage

425 spawn() call in livecd-kernel code to pass environment variables.
426 livecd-kernel code pulls PKGDIR and PORTAGE_TMPDIR from make.conf info in
427 the install profile if available.
428
429 23 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
