5*GLI-0.01 (9 Feb 2004) 5*GLI-0.1_alpha (4 Apr 2005)
6
7 13 Jun 2005; Robin H. Johnson <robbat2@gentoo.org>
8 src/GLIArchitectureTemplate.py:
9 Clean up commenting used by _edit_config(), and fix bug where wrong comment
10 was repeatedly appended to make.conf.
11
12 13 Jun 2005; Robin H. Johnson <robbat2@gentoo.org>
13 src/GLIArchitectureTemplate.py:
14 Put some Linux-2.6 specific code under a if statement. Store list of
15 successfully mounted swap device for using swapoff. Add proper error checking
16 to install_packages and install_filesystem_tools. Fixed namespace conflicts on
17 'file'. Clean up some redundant code (thanks to pychecker).'
18
19 13 Jun 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
20 Fix typos: get_extended() instead of get_extended_partition(). Added
21 list_mirrors() and list_stage_tarballs_from_mirror() functions to GLIUtility.
22 Change _emerge("sync") call to direct call to spawn to avoid 'emerge -k sync'
23
24 12 Jun 2005; John N. Laliberte <allanonjl@gentoo.org>
25 GLIInstallProfile.py: add missing set for dhcp_options if a tuple is passed
26 in add_network_interface.
27
28 12 Jun 2005; Robin H. Johnson <robbat2@gentoo.org> src/GLIArchitectureTemplate.py:
29 ensure PORTAGE_TMPDIR/PORT_LOGDIR/PORTDIR_OVERLAY/PKGDIR exist prior to any
30 usage - this caused a failure for stage1/stage2 previously. swapoff for swap
31 space at end of install. Mount /dev, /dev/shm, /dev/pts and /sys during
32 prepare_chroot.
33
34 11 Jun 2005; Robin H. Johnson <robbat2@gentoo.org> +src/cli/clife.py,
35 +src/cli/README, +src/fe/installer-cli, +src/fe/installer-dialog,
36 +src/fe/installer-gtk:
37 Add new automated CLI frontend. Add scripts that are the intended means to
38 use each frontend.
39
40 11 Jun 2005; Robin H. Johnson <robbat2@gentoo.org>
41 src/GLIClientController.py:
42 Add null type to network config, for cases where the interface is already up
43 and should not be touched (netboot for example).
44
45 11 Jun 2005; Robin H. Johnson <robbat2@gentoo.org>
46 src/GLIArchitectureTemplate.py:
47 pcmcia is not a variable name for a call to _add_to_runlevel, it should be a
48 string!. Try to use binary packages if available by default.
49
50 11 Jun 2005; Robin H. Johnson <robbat2@gentoo.org>
51 src/GLIArchitectureTemplate.py:
52 More error checking for _add_to_runlevel, to ensure that the init script
53 actually exists before we try to add it. set_services phase must take place
54 after the package installation, otherwise the init scripts might not exist.
55 Find the correct init script for the cron and logging daemons, and add that
56 instead of the package atom.
57
58 11 Jun 2005; Robin H. Johnson <robbat2@gentoo.org>
59 src/GLIArchitectureTemplate.py:
60 Fix up _edit_config so that it works if the file doesn't already exist. Fix
61 usage of 'file' to 'contents' for the variable name, as it shadows
62 __builtin__.file.
63
64 11 Jun 2005; Robin H. Johnson <robbat2@gentoo.org>
65 src/GLIArchitectureTemplate.py:
66 Add MTA install code, and include MTA install phase. Ensure
67 PORT_LOGDIR/PORTDIR_OVERLAY are created in _emerge if needed. Add support
68 for 'none' kernel config for build_kernel phase. Put kernel_script in
69 /var/tmp instead of /root for build_kernel phase.

72 Rename mta variables to match syslog/cron variables.

75 src/GLIArchitectureTemplate.py, src/templates/x86ArchitectureTemplate.py,
76 src/.cvsignore, src/fe/dialog/.cvsignore, src/fe/gtk/.cvsignore,
77 src/fe/net/client/.cvsignore, src/fe/net/server/.cvsignore,
78 src/templates/.cvsignore, src/tests/.cvsignore:
79 Refactor partition formatting again to include error checking. Allow 'none'
80 for kernel and bootloader specifications. Add .cvsignore files for .py[co].
81
82 11 Jun 2005; Robin H. Johnson <robbat2@gentoo.org>

89

92 be executable.
93
94 10 Jun 2005; Scott Myron <samyron@gentoo.org>

98 10 Jun 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
99 moved the mkfsopts input to the partition options menu instead of the during
100 the creation process. updated GenDialog to say it supports reiserfs v3.
101
102 9 Jun 2005; Robin H. Johnson <robbat2@gentoo.org> src/GLIInstallProfile.py,
103 src/GLIStorageDevice.py, fe/dialog/dialogfe.py:
