6
7 12 Jun 2005; John N. Laliberte <allanonjl@gentoo.org>
8 GLIInstallProfile.py: add missing set for dhcp_options if a tuple is passed
9 in add_network_interface.
10
11 12 Jun 2005; Robin H. Johnson <robbat2@gentoo.org> src/GLIArchitectureTemplate.py:
12 ensure PORTAGE_TMPDIR/PORT_LOGDIR/PORTDIR_OVERLAY/PKGDIR exist prior to any
13 usage - this caused a failure for stage1/stage2 previously. swapoff for swap
14 space at end of install. Mount /dev, /dev/shm, /dev/pts and /sys during
15 prepare_chroot.
16
17 11 Jun 2005; Robin H. Johnson <robbat2@gentoo.org> +src/cli/clife.py,
18 +src/cli/README, +src/fe/installer-cli, +src/fe/installer-dialog,
19 +src/fe/installer-gtk:
20 Add new automated CLI frontend. Add scripts that are the intended means to
21 use each frontend.
22
23 11 Jun 2005; Robin H. Johnson <robbat2@gentoo.org>
24 src/GLIClientController.py:
25 Add null type to network config, for cases where the interface is already up
26 and should not be touched (netboot for example).
27
28 11 Jun 2005; Robin H. Johnson <robbat2@gentoo.org>
29 src/GLIArchitectureTemplate.py:
30 pcmcia is not a variable name for a call to _add_to_runlevel, it should be a
31 string!. Try to use binary packages if available by default.
32
33 11 Jun 2005; Robin H. Johnson <robbat2@gentoo.org>
34 src/GLIArchitectureTemplate.py:
35 More error checking for _add_to_runlevel, to ensure that the init script
36 actually exists before we try to add it. set_services phase must take place
37 after the package installation, otherwise the init scripts might not exist.
38 Find the correct init script for the cron and logging daemons, and add that
39 instead of the package atom.
40
41 11 Jun 2005; Robin H. Johnson <robbat2@gentoo.org>
42 src/GLIArchitectureTemplate.py:
43 Fix up _edit_config so that it works if the file doesn't already exist. Fix
44 usage of 'file' to 'contents' for the variable name, as it shadows
45 __builtin__.file.
46
47 11 Jun 2005; Robin H. Johnson <robbat2@gentoo.org>
48 src/GLIArchitectureTemplate.py:
49 Add MTA install code, and include MTA install phase. Ensure
50 PORT_LOGDIR/PORTDIR_OVERLAY are created in _emerge if needed. Add support
51 for 'none' kernel config for build_kernel phase. Put kernel_script in
52 /var/tmp instead of /root for build_kernel phase.
53
54 11 Jun 2005; Robin H. Johnson <robbat2@gentoo.org> src/GLIInstallProfile.py:
55 Rename mta variables to match syslog/cron variables.
56

58 src/GLIArchitectureTemplate.py, src/templates/x86ArchitectureTemplate.py,
59 src/.cvsignore, src/fe/dialog/.cvsignore, src/fe/gtk/.cvsignore,
60 src/fe/net/client/.cvsignore, src/fe/net/server/.cvsignore,
61 src/templates/.cvsignore, src/tests/.cvsignore:
62 Refactor partition formatting again to include error checking. Allow 'none'
63 for kernel and bootloader specifications. Add .cvsignore files for .py[co].
64
65 11 Jun 2005; Robin H. Johnson <robbat2@gentoo.org>
66 src/GLIArchitectureTemplate.py, src/templates/x86ArchitectureTemplate.py:

68 only have a single spawn call.
69

72
73 11 Jun 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>

75 be executable.
76
77 10 Jun 2005; Scott Myron <samyron@gentoo.org>
78 Fixed one of the FIXME's in the ClientConfiguration. There is now some
79 error checking when you call set_architecture_template.
80
81 10 Jun 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
82 moved the mkfsopts input to the partition options menu instead of the during
83 the creation process. updated GenDialog to say it supports reiserfs v3.
84
85 9 Jun 2005; Robin H. Johnson <robbat2@gentoo.org> src/GLIInstallProfile.py,
86 src/GLIStorageDevice.py, fe/dialog/dialogfe.py:
87 Complete support for 'mkfsopts' parameter in main system and dialogfe.
88 Add support for other partition types to dialogfe.
89 Fix all usages of int(possible_big_number) to long(possible_bit_number) to
