6
7 20 Jun 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
8 Apply spawn() patch from #96644 (with minor changes). Make sure the return
9 value from all spawn() calls is checked with GLIUtility.exitsuccess(). Fix
10 small error with <pipe>.close() returning None. Fix space vs. tab issue.
11 Fix undefined variable 'output' issue in spawn(). Changed setup_network_post
12 to check for 'interfaces[interface][0] != "dhcp"' instead of
13 'interfaces[interface][1]' since DHCP uses that field for its options.
14
15 20 Jun 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
16 More updates to GenDialog and gli-d.
17
18 19 Jun 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
19 Modify list_mirrors() to return a list of mirror URL/name pairs.
20
21 19 Jun 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
22 Adding gli-dialog.py. Updates to GenDialog. Added function to GLIUtility to
23 get subarch.
24
25 16 Jun 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
26 Backend partitioning will create disklabel is none exists. Installprofile
27 defaults to "" now instead of "msdos" for disklabel type. Fix for
28 mount_local_partitions() to remember device along with minor in the
29 parts_to_mount dict (closes #96319). mount_local_partitions() cleanups and
30 add else block to log unsupported netmount types to mount_network_shares()
31
32 15 Jun 2005; Robin H. Johnson <robbat2@gentoo.org>
33 src/GLIArchitectureTemplate.py:
34 Refactor kernel_compile common stuff, fix 2.4 build process.

38 Add comments about re-writes needed for boxes without sysfs.
39
40 15 Jun 2005; Robin H. Johnson <robbat2@gentoo.org>
41 src/GLIArchitectureTemplate.py:
42 2.4 support (pull version data from /usr/src/linux/Makefile), incl.
43 'make dep' call for custom compile. build_mode support for prepare-only and
44 none types completed. custom compile function chains shell functions in
45 spawned script, to allow for catching all errors.
46
47 15 Jun 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
48 fixed up build_kernel in ArchTemplate for build_mode as well as in dialogfe
49 and GenDialog. other gendialog updates as well. kernel updates untested.
50
51 14 Jun 2005; Robin H. Johnson <robbat2@gentoo.org>
52 src/GLIInstallProfile.py:
53 Change structure of etc-portage stuff. The serialization was broken before my
54 last commit, and I am the only person that's ever used it. The new schema is
55 as follows:
56 <etc-portage>
57 <file name="package.mask"/>
58 <file name="package.unmask">
59 <entry atom="sys-kernel/openmosix-sources"/>
60 </file>
61 <file name="package.use">
62 <entry atom="sys-libs/db">
63 -java
64 </entry>
65 <entry atom="dev-libs/cyrus-sasl">
66 -ldap
67 </entry>
68 </file>
69 </etc-portage>
70
71
72 13 Jun 2005; Robin H. Johnson <robbat2@gentoo.org>
73 src/GLIInstallProfile.py:
74 Add new entry for gli-profile/kernel-build-method item. Add missing
75 serialize_etc_portage (temporary). Make serialize_make_conf always print the
76 keys in the same order.
77
78 13 Jun 2005; Robin H. Johnson <robbat2@gentoo.org>
79 src/GLIArchitectureTemplate.py:
80 Clean up commenting used by _edit_config(), and fix bug where wrong comment
81 was repeatedly appended to make.conf.
82
83 13 Jun 2005; Robin H. Johnson <robbat2@gentoo.org>
84 src/GLIArchitectureTemplate.py:
85 Put some Linux-2.6 specific code under a if statement. Store list of
86 successfully mounted swap device for using swapoff. Add proper error checking
87 to install_packages and install_filesystem_tools. Fixed namespace conflicts on
88 'file'. Clean up some redundant code (thanks to pychecker).'
89
90 13 Jun 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
91 Fix typos: get_extended() instead of get_extended_partition(). Added
92 list_mirrors() and list_stage_tarballs_from_mirror() functions to GLIUtility.
93 Change _emerge("sync") call to direct call to spawn to avoid 'emerge -k sync'
94
95 12 Jun 2005; John N. Laliberte <allanonjl@gentoo.org>
96 GLIInstallProfile.py: add missing set for dhcp_options if a tuple is passed
97 in add_network_interface.
98
99 12 Jun 2005; Robin H. Johnson <robbat2@gentoo.org> src/GLIArchitectureTemplate.py:
100 ensure PORTAGE_TMPDIR/PORT_LOGDIR/PORTDIR_OVERLAY/PKGDIR exist prior to any
101 usage - this caused a failure for stage1/stage2 previously. swapoff for swap
102 space at end of install. Mount /dev, /dev/shm, /dev/pts and /sys during
103 prepare_chroot.
104
105 11 Jun 2005; Robin H. Johnson <robbat2@gentoo.org> +src/cli/clife.py,
106 +src/cli/README, +src/fe/installer-cli, +src/fe/installer-dialog,
107 +src/fe/installer-gtk:

111 11 Jun 2005; Robin H. Johnson <robbat2@gentoo.org>
112 src/GLIClientController.py:
113 Add null type to network config, for cases where the interface is already up
114 and should not be touched (netboot for example).
115
116 11 Jun 2005; Robin H. Johnson <robbat2@gentoo.org>
117 src/GLIArchitectureTemplate.py:
118 pcmcia is not a variable name for a call to _add_to_runlevel, it should be a
119 string!. Try to use binary packages if available by default.
120
121 11 Jun 2005; Robin H. Johnson <robbat2@gentoo.org>
122 src/GLIArchitectureTemplate.py:
123 More error checking for _add_to_runlevel, to ensure that the init script
124 actually exists before we try to add it. set_services phase must take place
125 after the package installation, otherwise the init scripts might not exist.
126 Find the correct init script for the cron and logging daemons, and add that
127 instead of the package atom.
128
129 11 Jun 2005; Robin H. Johnson <robbat2@gentoo.org>
130 src/GLIArchitectureTemplate.py:
131 Fix up _edit_config so that it works if the file doesn't already exist. Fix
132 usage of 'file' to 'contents' for the variable name, as it shadows
133 __builtin__.file.
134
135 11 Jun 2005; Robin H. Johnson <robbat2@gentoo.org>
136 src/GLIArchitectureTemplate.py:
137 Add MTA install code, and include MTA install phase. Ensure

143 Rename mta variables to match syslog/cron variables.

151 for kernel and bootloader specifications. Add .cvsignore files for .py[co].
152

160
161 11 Jun 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>

163 be executable.
164
165 10 Jun 2005; Scott Myron <samyron@gentoo.org>
166 Fixed one of the FIXME's in the ClientConfiguration. There is now some
167 error checking when you call set_architecture_template.
168
169 10 Jun 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
170 moved the mkfsopts input to the partition options menu instead of the during
171 the creation process. updated GenDialog to say it supports reiserfs v3.
172
