504 src/GLIInstallProfile.py:
505 Fix codeman's screwup of changing the service seperator to ',' in the parser
506 without changing it in the serialization code! Also document this in a
507 comment so you find it easier. Everybody needs to make sure they update
508 their install profiles!

522 src/templates/x86ArchitectureTemplate.py:
523 Refactor install_bootloader code and _install_{grub,lilo} so that 'none' for
524 bootloader works again. Also rename _install_{grub,lilo} to
525 _configure_{grub,lilo} since they don't install the loaders anymore
526 themselves.
527

552 function is called twice on the same file.
553
554 29 Jun 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
555 Missing \ in sed in _get_packages_to_emerge()

571 attempt at fixing rc.conf function. moved 3 generate functions out of
572 fe/gtk/RcDotConf and put them in Utility. fixed self bug.

600 instead of int() in add_partition_device_partition() for minor (closes 96804)
601
602 21 Jun 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
603 Changed setup_network_post to check for 'interfaces[interface][0] != "dhcp"'
604 instead of 'interfaces[interface][1]' since DHCP uses that field for its
605 options. setup_network_post() writes custom DHCP options to /etc/conf.d/net.
606
607 20 Jun 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
608 Apply spawn() patch from #96644 (with minor changes). Make sure the return

624 Backend partitioning will create disklabel is none exists. Installprofile
625 defaults to "" now instead of "msdos" for disklabel type. Fix for
626 mount_local_partitions() to remember device along with minor in the
627 parts_to_mount dict (closes #96319). mount_local_partitions() cleanups and
628 add else block to log unsupported netmount types to mount_network_shares()

639 src/GLIArchitectureTemplate.py:
640 2.4 support (pull version data from /usr/src/linux/Makefile), incl.
641 'make dep' call for custom compile. build_mode support for prepare-only and
642 none types completed. custom compile function chains shell functions in
643 spawned script, to allow for catching all errors.
644
645 15 Jun 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
646 fixed up build_kernel in ArchTemplate for build_mode as well as in dialogfe
647 and GenDialog. other gendialog updates as well. kernel updates untested.
648
649 14 Jun 2005; Robin H. Johnson <robbat2@gentoo.org>
650 src/GLIInstallProfile.py:
651 Change structure of etc-portage stuff. The serialization was broken before my
652 last commit, and I am the only person that's ever used it. The new schema is
653 as follows:
654 <etc-portage>
655 <file name="package.mask"/>
656 <file name="package.unmask">
657 <entry atom="sys-kernel/openmosix-sources"/>
658 </file>
659 <file name="package.use">
660 <entry atom="sys-libs/db">
661 -java
662 </entry>
663 <entry atom="dev-libs/cyrus-sasl">
664 -ldap
665 </entry>
666 </file>
667 </etc-portage>
668
669
670 13 Jun 2005; Robin H. Johnson <robbat2@gentoo.org>
671 src/GLIInstallProfile.py:
672 Add new entry for gli-profile/kernel-build-method item. Add missing
673 serialize_etc_portage (temporary). Make serialize_make_conf always print the
674 keys in the same order.
675
676 13 Jun 2005; Robin H. Johnson <robbat2@gentoo.org>
677 src/GLIArchitectureTemplate.py:
678 Clean up commenting used by _edit_config(), and fix bug where wrong comment
679 was repeatedly appended to make.conf.
680
681 13 Jun 2005; Robin H. Johnson <robbat2@gentoo.org>
682 src/GLIArchitectureTemplate.py:
683 Put some Linux-2.6 specific code under a if statement. Store list of
684 successfully mounted swap device for using swapoff. Add proper error checking
685 to install_packages and install_filesystem_tools. Fixed namespace conflicts on
686 'file'. Clean up some redundant code (thanks to pychecker).'
687
688 13 Jun 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
689 Fix typos: get_extended() instead of get_extended_partition(). Added
690 list_mirrors() and list_stage_tarballs_from_mirror() functions to GLIUtility.

692
693 12 Jun 2005; John N. Laliberte <allanonjl@gentoo.org>
694 GLIInstallProfile.py: add missing set for dhcp_options if a tuple is passed
695 in add_network_interface.
696
697 12 Jun 2005; Robin H. Johnson <robbat2@gentoo.org> src/GLIArchitectureTemplate.py:
698 ensure PORTAGE_TMPDIR/PORT_LOGDIR/PORTDIR_OVERLAY/PKGDIR exist prior to any
699 usage - this caused a failure for stage1/stage2 previously. swapoff for swap
700 space at end of install. Mount /dev, /dev/shm, /dev/pts and /sys during
701 prepare_chroot.
702
703 11 Jun 2005; Robin H. Johnson <robbat2@gentoo.org> +src/cli/clife.py,
704 +src/cli/README, +src/fe/installer-cli, +src/fe/installer-dialog,

712 and should not be touched (netboot for example).
713
714 11 Jun 2005; Robin H. Johnson <robbat2@gentoo.org>
715 src/GLIArchitectureTemplate.py:
716 pcmcia is not a variable name for a call to _add_to_runlevel, it should be a
717 string!. Try to use binary packages if available by default.
718
719 11 Jun 2005; Robin H. Johnson <robbat2@gentoo.org>
720 src/GLIArchitectureTemplate.py:
721 More error checking for _add_to_runlevel, to ensure that the init script
722 actually exists before we try to add it. set_services phase must take place
723 after the package installation, otherwise the init scripts might not exist.
724 Find the correct init script for the cron and logging daemons, and add that
725 instead of the package atom.
726
727 11 Jun 2005; Robin H. Johnson <robbat2@gentoo.org>
728 src/GLIArchitectureTemplate.py:
729 Fix up _edit_config so that it works if the file doesn't already exist. Fix
730 usage of 'file' to 'contents' for the variable name, as it shadows
731 __builtin__.file.
732
733 11 Jun 2005; Robin H. Johnson <robbat2@gentoo.org>
734 src/GLIArchitectureTemplate.py:
735 Add MTA install code, and include MTA install phase. Ensure
736 PORT_LOGDIR/PORTDIR_OVERLAY are created in _emerge if needed. Add support
737 for 'none' kernel config for build_kernel phase. Put kernel_script in
738 /var/tmp instead of /root for build_kernel phase.

741 Rename mta variables to match syslog/cron variables.
742

747 src/templates/.cvsignore, src/tests/.cvsignore:
748 Refactor partition formatting again to include error checking. Allow 'none'
749 for kernel and bootloader specifications. Add .cvsignore files for .py[co].
750

758
759 11 Jun 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
760 Move /tmp/spawn.sh and /tmp/post-install to /var/tmp since that should always
761 be executable.
762
763 10 Jun 2005; Scott Myron <samyron@gentoo.org>
764 Fixed one of the FIXME's in the ClientConfiguration. There is now some
765 error checking when you call set_architecture_template.
766
767 10 Jun 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
768 moved the mkfsopts input to the partition options menu instead of the during
769 the creation process. updated GenDialog to say it supports reiserfs v3.
770
