542 attempt at fixing rc.conf function. moved 3 generate functions out of
543 fe/gtk/RcDotConf and put them in Utility. fixed self bug.
544 added dialog.py to the fe/dialog directory so it actually gets used.

572
573 21 Jun 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
574 Changed setup_network_post to check for 'interfaces[interface][0] != "dhcp"'
575 instead of 'interfaces[interface][1]' since DHCP uses that field for its

577
578 20 Jun 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>

596 defaults to "" now instead of "msdos" for disklabel type. Fix for
597 mount_local_partitions() to remember device along with minor in the
598 parts_to_mount dict (closes #96319). mount_local_partitions() cleanups and
599 add else block to log unsupported netmount types to mount_network_shares()

611 2.4 support (pull version data from /usr/src/linux/Makefile), incl.
612 'make dep' call for custom compile. build_mode support for prepare-only and
613 none types completed. custom compile function chains shell functions in
614 spawned script, to allow for catching all errors.
615
616 15 Jun 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
617 fixed up build_kernel in ArchTemplate for build_mode as well as in dialogfe
618 and GenDialog. other gendialog updates as well. kernel updates untested.
619
620 14 Jun 2005; Robin H. Johnson <robbat2@gentoo.org>
621 src/GLIInstallProfile.py:
622 Change structure of etc-portage stuff. The serialization was broken before my
623 last commit, and I am the only person that's ever used it. The new schema is
624 as follows:
625 <etc-portage>
626 <file name="package.mask"/>
627 <file name="package.unmask">
628 <entry atom="sys-kernel/openmosix-sources"/>
629 </file>
630 <file name="package.use">
631 <entry atom="sys-libs/db">
632 -java
633 </entry>
634 <entry atom="dev-libs/cyrus-sasl">
635 -ldap
636 </entry>
637 </file>
638 </etc-portage>
639

641 13 Jun 2005; Robin H. Johnson <robbat2@gentoo.org>
642 src/GLIInstallProfile.py:
643 Add new entry for gli-profile/kernel-build-method item. Add missing
644 serialize_etc_portage (temporary). Make serialize_make_conf always print the
645 keys in the same order.

647 13 Jun 2005; Robin H. Johnson <robbat2@gentoo.org>
648 src/GLIArchitectureTemplate.py:

650 was repeatedly appended to make.conf.
651
652 13 Jun 2005; Robin H. Johnson <robbat2@gentoo.org>
653 src/GLIArchitectureTemplate.py:
654 Put some Linux-2.6 specific code under a if statement. Store list of
655 successfully mounted swap device for using swapoff. Add proper error checking
656 to install_packages and install_filesystem_tools. Fixed namespace conflicts on
657 'file'. Clean up some redundant code (thanks to pychecker).'
658
659 13 Jun 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
660 Fix typos: get_extended() instead of get_extended_partition(). Added
661 list_mirrors() and list_stage_tarballs_from_mirror() functions to GLIUtility.

663
664 12 Jun 2005; John N. Laliberte <allanonjl@gentoo.org>
665 GLIInstallProfile.py: add missing set for dhcp_options if a tuple is passed
666 in add_network_interface.
667
668 12 Jun 2005; Robin H. Johnson <robbat2@gentoo.org> src/GLIArchitectureTemplate.py:
669 ensure PORTAGE_TMPDIR/PORT_LOGDIR/PORTDIR_OVERLAY/PKGDIR exist prior to any
670 usage - this caused a failure for stage1/stage2 previously. swapoff for swap
671 space at end of install. Mount /dev, /dev/shm, /dev/pts and /sys during
672 prepare_chroot.
673
674 11 Jun 2005; Robin H. Johnson <robbat2@gentoo.org> +src/cli/clife.py,
675 +src/cli/README, +src/fe/installer-cli, +src/fe/installer-dialog,

683 and should not be touched (netboot for example).
684
685 11 Jun 2005; Robin H. Johnson <robbat2@gentoo.org>
686 src/GLIArchitectureTemplate.py:
687 pcmcia is not a variable name for a call to _add_to_runlevel, it should be a
688 string!. Try to use binary packages if available by default.
689
690 11 Jun 2005; Robin H. Johnson <robbat2@gentoo.org>
691 src/GLIArchitectureTemplate.py:
692 More error checking for _add_to_runlevel, to ensure that the init script
693 actually exists before we try to add it. set_services phase must take place
694 after the package installation, otherwise the init scripts might not exist.
695 Find the correct init script for the cron and logging daemons, and add that
696 instead of the package atom.
697
698 11 Jun 2005; Robin H. Johnson <robbat2@gentoo.org>
699 src/GLIArchitectureTemplate.py:
700 Fix up _edit_config so that it works if the file doesn't already exist. Fix

702 __builtin__.file.
703
704 11 Jun 2005; Robin H. Johnson <robbat2@gentoo.org>
705 src/GLIArchitectureTemplate.py:
706 Add MTA install code, and include MTA install phase. Ensure
707 PORT_LOGDIR/PORTDIR_OVERLAY are created in _emerge if needed. Add support

729
730 11 Jun 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
731 Move /tmp/spawn.sh and /tmp/post-install to /var/tmp since that should always
732 be executable.
733
734 10 Jun 2005; Scott Myron <samyron@gentoo.org>
735 Fixed one of the FIXME's in the ClientConfiguration. There is now some
736 error checking when you call set_architecture_template.
737
738 10 Jun 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
739 moved the mkfsopts input to the partition options menu instead of the during
740 the creation process. updated GenDialog to say it supports reiserfs v3.
741
