5*GLI-0.01 (9 Feb 2004) 5*GLI-0.1_alpha (4 Apr 2005)
6
7 14 Jun 2005; Robin H. Johnson <robbat2@gentoo.org>
8 src/GLIInstallProfile.py:
9 Change structure of etc-portage stuff. The serialization was broken before my
10 last commit, and I am the only person that's ever used it. The new schema is
11 as follows:
12 <etc-portage>
13 <file name="package.mask"/>
14 <file name="package.unmask">
15 <entry atom="sys-kernel/openmosix-sources"/>
16 </file>
17 <file name="package.use">
18 <entry atom="sys-libs/db">
19 -java
20 </entry>
21 <entry atom="dev-libs/cyrus-sasl">
22 -ldap
23 </entry>
24 </file>
25 </etc-portage>
26
27
28 13 Jun 2005; Robin H. Johnson <robbat2@gentoo.org>
29 src/GLIInstallProfile.py:
30 Add new entry for gli-profile/kernel-build-method item. Add missing
31 serialize_etc_portage (temporary). Make serialize_make_conf always print the
32 keys in the same order.
33
34 13 Jun 2005; Robin H. Johnson <robbat2@gentoo.org>
35 src/GLIArchitectureTemplate.py:
36 Clean up commenting used by _edit_config(), and fix bug where wrong comment
37 was repeatedly appended to make.conf.
38
39 13 Jun 2005; Robin H. Johnson <robbat2@gentoo.org>
40 src/GLIArchitectureTemplate.py:
41 Put some Linux-2.6 specific code under a if statement. Store list of
42 successfully mounted swap device for using swapoff. Add proper error checking
43 to install_packages and install_filesystem_tools. Fixed namespace conflicts on
44 'file'. Clean up some redundant code (thanks to pychecker).'
45
46 13 Jun 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
47 Fix typos: get_extended() instead of get_extended_partition(). Added
48 list_mirrors() and list_stage_tarballs_from_mirror() functions to GLIUtility.
49 Change _emerge("sync") call to direct call to spawn to avoid 'emerge -k sync'
50
51 12 Jun 2005; John N. Laliberte <allanonjl@gentoo.org>
52 GLIInstallProfile.py: add missing set for dhcp_options if a tuple is passed
53 in add_network_interface.
54
55 12 Jun 2005; Robin H. Johnson <robbat2@gentoo.org> src/GLIArchitectureTemplate.py:
56 ensure PORTAGE_TMPDIR/PORT_LOGDIR/PORTDIR_OVERLAY/PKGDIR exist prior to any
57 usage - this caused a failure for stage1/stage2 previously. swapoff for swap
58 space at end of install. Mount /dev, /dev/shm, /dev/pts and /sys during
59 prepare_chroot.
60
61 11 Jun 2005; Robin H. Johnson <robbat2@gentoo.org> +src/cli/clife.py,
62 +src/cli/README, +src/fe/installer-cli, +src/fe/installer-dialog,
63 +src/fe/installer-gtk:
64 Add new automated CLI frontend. Add scripts that are the intended means to
65 use each frontend.
66
67 11 Jun 2005; Robin H. Johnson <robbat2@gentoo.org>
68 src/GLIClientController.py:
69 Add null type to network config, for cases where the interface is already up
70 and should not be touched (netboot for example).
71
72 11 Jun 2005; Robin H. Johnson <robbat2@gentoo.org>
73 src/GLIArchitectureTemplate.py:
74 pcmcia is not a variable name for a call to _add_to_runlevel, it should be a
75 string!. Try to use binary packages if available by default.
76
77 11 Jun 2005; Robin H. Johnson <robbat2@gentoo.org>
78 src/GLIArchitectureTemplate.py:
79 More error checking for _add_to_runlevel, to ensure that the init script
80 actually exists before we try to add it. set_services phase must take place
81 after the package installation, otherwise the init scripts might not exist.
82 Find the correct init script for the cron and logging daemons, and add that
83 instead of the package atom.
84
85 11 Jun 2005; Robin H. Johnson <robbat2@gentoo.org>
86 src/GLIArchitectureTemplate.py:
87 Fix up _edit_config so that it works if the file doesn't already exist. Fix
88 usage of 'file' to 'contents' for the variable name, as it shadows
89 __builtin__.file.
90
91 11 Jun 2005; Robin H. Johnson <robbat2@gentoo.org>
92 src/GLIArchitectureTemplate.py:
93 Add MTA install code, and include MTA install phase. Ensure
94 PORT_LOGDIR/PORTDIR_OVERLAY are created in _emerge if needed. Add support
95 for 'none' kernel config for build_kernel phase. Put kernel_script in
96 /var/tmp instead of /root for build_kernel phase.
97
98 11 Jun 2005; Robin H. Johnson <robbat2@gentoo.org> src/GLIInstallProfile.py:
99 Rename mta variables to match syslog/cron variables.
100
101 11 Jun 2005; Robin H. Johnson <robbat2@gentoo.org>
102 src/GLIArchitectureTemplate.py, src/templates/x86ArchitectureTemplate.py,
103 src/.cvsignore, src/fe/dialog/.cvsignore, src/fe/gtk/.cvsignore,
104 src/fe/net/client/.cvsignore, src/fe/net/server/.cvsignore,
105 src/templates/.cvsignore, src/tests/.cvsignore:
106 Refactor partition formatting again to include error checking. Allow 'none'
107 for kernel and bootloader specifications. Add .cvsignore files for .py[co].
108
109 11 Jun 2005; Robin H. Johnson <robbat2@gentoo.org>
110 src/GLIArchitectureTemplate.py, src/templates/x86ArchitectureTemplate.py:

116

119 be executable.
120
121 10 Jun 2005; Scott Myron <samyron@gentoo.org>
122 Fixed one of the FIXME's in the ClientConfiguration. There is now some
123 error checking when you call set_architecture_template.
124
125 10 Jun 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
126 moved the mkfsopts input to the partition options menu instead of the during
127 the creation process. updated GenDialog to say it supports reiserfs v3.
128
