5*GLI-0.01 (9 Feb 2004) 5*GLI-0.1_alpha (4 Apr 2005)
6
7 19 Jun 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
8 Modify list_mirrors() to return a list of mirror URL/name pairs.
9
10 19 Jun 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
11 Adding gli-dialog.py. Updates to GenDialog. Added function to GLIUtility to
12 get subarch.
13
14 16 Jun 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
15 Backend partitioning will create disklabel is none exists. Installprofile
16 defaults to "" now instead of "msdos" for disklabel type. Fix for
17 mount_local_partitions() to remember device along with minor in the
18 parts_to_mount dict (closes #96319). mount_local_partitions() cleanups and
19 add else block to log unsupported netmount types to mount_network_shares()
20
21 15 Jun 2005; Robin H. Johnson <robbat2@gentoo.org>
22 src/GLIArchitectureTemplate.py:
23 Refactor kernel_compile common stuff, fix 2.4 build process.
24 src/fe/cli/clife.py:
25 Logging system.
26 src/GLIUtility.py, src/GLIStorageDevice.py:
27 Add comments about re-writes needed for boxes without sysfs.
28
29 15 Jun 2005; Robin H. Johnson <robbat2@gentoo.org>
30 src/GLIArchitectureTemplate.py:
31 2.4 support (pull version data from /usr/src/linux/Makefile), incl.
32 'make dep' call for custom compile. build_mode support for prepare-only and
33 none types completed. custom compile function chains shell functions in
34 spawned script, to allow for catching all errors.
35
36 15 Jun 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
37 fixed up build_kernel in ArchTemplate for build_mode as well as in dialogfe
38 and GenDialog. other gendialog updates as well. kernel updates untested.
39
40 14 Jun 2005; Robin H. Johnson <robbat2@gentoo.org>
41 src/GLIInstallProfile.py:
42 Change structure of etc-portage stuff. The serialization was broken before my
43 last commit, and I am the only person that's ever used it. The new schema is
44 as follows:
45 <etc-portage>
46 <file name="package.mask"/>
47 <file name="package.unmask">
48 <entry atom="sys-kernel/openmosix-sources"/>
49 </file>
50 <file name="package.use">
51 <entry atom="sys-libs/db">
52 -java
53 </entry>
54 <entry atom="dev-libs/cyrus-sasl">
55 -ldap
56 </entry>
57 </file>
58 </etc-portage>
59
60
61 13 Jun 2005; Robin H. Johnson <robbat2@gentoo.org>
62 src/GLIInstallProfile.py:
63 Add new entry for gli-profile/kernel-build-method item. Add missing
64 serialize_etc_portage (temporary). Make serialize_make_conf always print the
65 keys in the same order.
66
67 13 Jun 2005; Robin H. Johnson <robbat2@gentoo.org>
68 src/GLIArchitectureTemplate.py:
69 Clean up commenting used by _edit_config(), and fix bug where wrong comment
70 was repeatedly appended to make.conf.
71
72 13 Jun 2005; Robin H. Johnson <robbat2@gentoo.org>
73 src/GLIArchitectureTemplate.py:
74 Put some Linux-2.6 specific code under a if statement. Store list of
75 successfully mounted swap device for using swapoff. Add proper error checking
76 to install_packages and install_filesystem_tools. Fixed namespace conflicts on
77 'file'. Clean up some redundant code (thanks to pychecker).'
78
79 13 Jun 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
80 Fix typos: get_extended() instead of get_extended_partition(). Added
81 list_mirrors() and list_stage_tarballs_from_mirror() functions to GLIUtility.
82 Change _emerge("sync") call to direct call to spawn to avoid 'emerge -k sync'
83
84 12 Jun 2005; John N. Laliberte <allanonjl@gentoo.org>
85 GLIInstallProfile.py: add missing set for dhcp_options if a tuple is passed
86 in add_network_interface.
87
88 12 Jun 2005; Robin H. Johnson <robbat2@gentoo.org> src/GLIArchitectureTemplate.py:
89 ensure PORTAGE_TMPDIR/PORT_LOGDIR/PORTDIR_OVERLAY/PKGDIR exist prior to any
90 usage - this caused a failure for stage1/stage2 previously. swapoff for swap
91 space at end of install. Mount /dev, /dev/shm, /dev/pts and /sys during
92 prepare_chroot.
93
94 11 Jun 2005; Robin H. Johnson <robbat2@gentoo.org> +src/cli/clife.py,
95 +src/cli/README, +src/fe/installer-cli, +src/fe/installer-dialog,
96 +src/fe/installer-gtk:
97 Add new automated CLI frontend. Add scripts that are the intended means to
98 use each frontend.
99
100 11 Jun 2005; Robin H. Johnson <robbat2@gentoo.org>
101 src/GLIClientController.py:
102 Add null type to network config, for cases where the interface is already up
103 and should not be touched (netboot for example).
104
105 11 Jun 2005; Robin H. Johnson <robbat2@gentoo.org>
106 src/GLIArchitectureTemplate.py:
107 pcmcia is not a variable name for a call to _add_to_runlevel, it should be a
108 string!. Try to use binary packages if available by default.
109
110 11 Jun 2005; Robin H. Johnson <robbat2@gentoo.org>
111 src/GLIArchitectureTemplate.py:
112 More error checking for _add_to_runlevel, to ensure that the init script
113 actually exists before we try to add it. set_services phase must take place
114 after the package installation, otherwise the init scripts might not exist.
115 Find the correct init script for the cron and logging daemons, and add that
116 instead of the package atom.
117
118 11 Jun 2005; Robin H. Johnson <robbat2@gentoo.org>
119 src/GLIArchitectureTemplate.py:
120 Fix up _edit_config so that it works if the file doesn't already exist. Fix
121 usage of 'file' to 'contents' for the variable name, as it shadows
122 __builtin__.file.
123
124 11 Jun 2005; Robin H. Johnson <robbat2@gentoo.org>
125 src/GLIArchitectureTemplate.py:
126 Add MTA install code, and include MTA install phase. Ensure
127 PORT_LOGDIR/PORTDIR_OVERLAY are created in _emerge if needed. Add support
128 for 'none' kernel config for build_kernel phase. Put kernel_script in
129 /var/tmp instead of /root for build_kernel phase.
130
131 11 Jun 2005; Robin H. Johnson <robbat2@gentoo.org> src/GLIInstallProfile.py:
132 Rename mta variables to match syslog/cron variables.
133
134 11 Jun 2005; Robin H. Johnson <robbat2@gentoo.org>
135 src/GLIArchitectureTemplate.py, src/templates/x86ArchitectureTemplate.py,
136 src/.cvsignore, src/fe/dialog/.cvsignore, src/fe/gtk/.cvsignore,
137 src/fe/net/client/.cvsignore, src/fe/net/server/.cvsignore,
138 src/templates/.cvsignore, src/tests/.cvsignore:
139 Refactor partition formatting again to include error checking. Allow 'none'
140 for kernel and bootloader specifications. Add .cvsignore files for .py[co].
141
142 11 Jun 2005; Robin H. Johnson <robbat2@gentoo.org>

149
150 11 Jun 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>

152 be executable.
153
154 10 Jun 2005; Scott Myron <samyron@gentoo.org>
155 Fixed one of the FIXME's in the ClientConfiguration. There is now some
156 error checking when you call set_architecture_template.
157
158 10 Jun 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
159 moved the mkfsopts input to the partition options menu instead of the during
160 the creation process. updated GenDialog to say it supports reiserfs v3.
161
