7 16 Jun 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
8 Backend partitioning will create disklabel is none exists. Installprofile
9 defaults to "" now instead of "msdos" for disklabel type. Fix for
10 mount_local_partitions() to remember device along with minor in the
11 parts_to_mount dict (closes #96319).
12
13 15 Jun 2005; Robin H. Johnson <robbat2@gentoo.org>
14 src/GLIArchitectureTemplate.py:
15 Refactor kernel_compile common stuff, fix 2.4 build process.
16 src/fe/cli/clife.py:
17 Logging system.
18 src/GLIUtility.py, src/GLIStorageDevice.py:
19 Add comments about re-writes needed for boxes without sysfs.
20
21 15 Jun 2005; Robin H. Johnson <robbat2@gentoo.org>
22 src/GLIArchitectureTemplate.py:
23 2.4 support (pull version data from /usr/src/linux/Makefile), incl.
24 'make dep' call for custom compile. build_mode support for prepare-only and
25 none types completed. custom compile function chains shell functions in
26 spawned script, to allow for catching all errors.
27
28 15 Jun 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
29 fixed up build_kernel in ArchTemplate for build_mode as well as in dialogfe
30 and GenDialog. other gendialog updates as well. kernel updates untested.
31
32 14 Jun 2005; Robin H. Johnson <robbat2@gentoo.org>
33 src/GLIInstallProfile.py:
34 Change structure of etc-portage stuff. The serialization was broken before my
35 last commit, and I am the only person that's ever used it. The new schema is
36 as follows:
37 <etc-portage>
38 <file name="package.mask"/>
39 <file name="package.unmask">
40 <entry atom="sys-kernel/openmosix-sources"/>
41 </file>
42 <file name="package.use">
43 <entry atom="sys-libs/db">
44 -java
45 </entry>
46 <entry atom="dev-libs/cyrus-sasl">
47 -ldap
48 </entry>
49 </file>
50 </etc-portage>
51
52
53 13 Jun 2005; Robin H. Johnson <robbat2@gentoo.org>
54 src/GLIInstallProfile.py:
55 Add new entry for gli-profile/kernel-build-method item. Add missing
56 serialize_etc_portage (temporary). Make serialize_make_conf always print the
57 keys in the same order.
58
59 13 Jun 2005; Robin H. Johnson <robbat2@gentoo.org>
60 src/GLIArchitectureTemplate.py:
61 Clean up commenting used by _edit_config(), and fix bug where wrong comment
62 was repeatedly appended to make.conf.
63
64 13 Jun 2005; Robin H. Johnson <robbat2@gentoo.org>
65 src/GLIArchitectureTemplate.py:
66 Put some Linux-2.6 specific code under a if statement. Store list of
67 successfully mounted swap device for using swapoff. Add proper error checking
68 to install_packages and install_filesystem_tools. Fixed namespace conflicts on
69 'file'. Clean up some redundant code (thanks to pychecker).'
70
71 13 Jun 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
72 Fix typos: get_extended() instead of get_extended_partition(). Added
73 list_mirrors() and list_stage_tarballs_from_mirror() functions to GLIUtility.
74 Change _emerge("sync") call to direct call to spawn to avoid 'emerge -k sync'
75
76 12 Jun 2005; John N. Laliberte <allanonjl@gentoo.org>
77 GLIInstallProfile.py: add missing set for dhcp_options if a tuple is passed
78 in add_network_interface.
79
80 12 Jun 2005; Robin H. Johnson <robbat2@gentoo.org> src/GLIArchitectureTemplate.py:
81 ensure PORTAGE_TMPDIR/PORT_LOGDIR/PORTDIR_OVERLAY/PKGDIR exist prior to any
82 usage - this caused a failure for stage1/stage2 previously. swapoff for swap
83 space at end of install. Mount /dev, /dev/shm, /dev/pts and /sys during
84 prepare_chroot.
85
86 11 Jun 2005; Robin H. Johnson <robbat2@gentoo.org> +src/cli/clife.py,
87 +src/cli/README, +src/fe/installer-cli, +src/fe/installer-dialog,
88 +src/fe/installer-gtk:
89 Add new automated CLI frontend. Add scripts that are the intended means to
90 use each frontend.
91
92 11 Jun 2005; Robin H. Johnson <robbat2@gentoo.org>
93 src/GLIClientController.py:
94 Add null type to network config, for cases where the interface is already up
95 and should not be touched (netboot for example).
96
97 11 Jun 2005; Robin H. Johnson <robbat2@gentoo.org>
98 src/GLIArchitectureTemplate.py:
99 pcmcia is not a variable name for a call to _add_to_runlevel, it should be a
100 string!. Try to use binary packages if available by default.
101
102 11 Jun 2005; Robin H. Johnson <robbat2@gentoo.org>
103 src/GLIArchitectureTemplate.py:
104 More error checking for _add_to_runlevel, to ensure that the init script
105 actually exists before we try to add it. set_services phase must take place
106 after the package installation, otherwise the init scripts might not exist.
107 Find the correct init script for the cron and logging daemons, and add that
108 instead of the package atom.
109
110 11 Jun 2005; Robin H. Johnson <robbat2@gentoo.org>
111 src/GLIArchitectureTemplate.py:
112 Fix up _edit_config so that it works if the file doesn't already exist. Fix
113 usage of 'file' to 'contents' for the variable name, as it shadows
114 __builtin__.file.
115
116 11 Jun 2005; Robin H. Johnson <robbat2@gentoo.org>
117 src/GLIArchitectureTemplate.py:
118 Add MTA install code, and include MTA install phase. Ensure
119 PORT_LOGDIR/PORTDIR_OVERLAY are created in _emerge if needed. Add support
120 for 'none' kernel config for build_kernel phase. Put kernel_script in
121 /var/tmp instead of /root for build_kernel phase.
122
123 11 Jun 2005; Robin H. Johnson <robbat2@gentoo.org> src/GLIInstallProfile.py:
124 Rename mta variables to match syslog/cron variables.
125
126 11 Jun 2005; Robin H. Johnson <robbat2@gentoo.org>
127 src/GLIArchitectureTemplate.py, src/templates/x86ArchitectureTemplate.py,
128 src/.cvsignore, src/fe/dialog/.cvsignore, src/fe/gtk/.cvsignore,

130 src/templates/.cvsignore, src/tests/.cvsignore:
131 Refactor partition formatting again to include error checking. Allow 'none'
132 for kernel and bootloader specifications. Add .cvsignore files for .py[co].
133
134 11 Jun 2005; Robin H. Johnson <robbat2@gentoo.org>

141
142 11 Jun 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>

144 be executable.
145
146 10 Jun 2005; Scott Myron <samyron@gentoo.org>
147 Fixed one of the FIXME's in the ClientConfiguration. There is now some
148 error checking when you call set_architecture_template.
149
150 10 Jun 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
151 moved the mkfsopts input to the partition options menu instead of the during
152 the creation process. updated GenDialog to say it supports reiserfs v3.
153
154 9 Jun 2005; Robin H. Johnson <robbat2@gentoo.org> src/GLIInstallProfile.py,
