5*GLI-0.01 (9 Feb 2004) 5*GLI-0.1_alpha (4 Apr 2005)
6
7 22 Jun 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
8 Modify get_eth_info() to take a full interface name (eth0 fex). float()
9 instead of int() in add_partition_device_partition() for minor (closes 96804)
10
11 21 Jun 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
12 Changed setup_network_post to check for 'interfaces[interface][0] != "dhcp"'
13 instead of 'interfaces[interface][1]' since DHCP uses that field for its
14 options. setup_network_post() writes custom DHCP options to /etc/conf.d/net.
15
16 20 Jun 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
17 Apply spawn() patch from #96644 (with minor changes). Make sure the return
18 value from all spawn() calls is checked with GLIUtility.exitsuccess(). Fix
19 small error with <pipe>.close() returning None. Fix space vs. tab issue.
20 Fix undefined variable 'output' issue in spawn().
21
22 20 Jun 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
23 More updates to GenDialog and gli-d.
24
25 19 Jun 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
26 Modify list_mirrors() to return a list of mirror URL/name pairs.
27
28 19 Jun 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
29 Adding gli-dialog.py. Updates to GenDialog. Added function to GLIUtility to
30 get subarch.
31
32 16 Jun 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
33 Backend partitioning will create disklabel is none exists. Installprofile
34 defaults to "" now instead of "msdos" for disklabel type. Fix for
35 mount_local_partitions() to remember device along with minor in the
36 parts_to_mount dict (closes #96319). mount_local_partitions() cleanups and
37 add else block to log unsupported netmount types to mount_network_shares()
38
39 15 Jun 2005; Robin H. Johnson <robbat2@gentoo.org>
40 src/GLIArchitectureTemplate.py:
41 Refactor kernel_compile common stuff, fix 2.4 build process.

45 Add comments about re-writes needed for boxes without sysfs.
46
47 15 Jun 2005; Robin H. Johnson <robbat2@gentoo.org>
48 src/GLIArchitectureTemplate.py:
49 2.4 support (pull version data from /usr/src/linux/Makefile), incl.
50 'make dep' call for custom compile. build_mode support for prepare-only and
51 none types completed. custom compile function chains shell functions in
52 spawned script, to allow for catching all errors.
53
54 15 Jun 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
55 fixed up build_kernel in ArchTemplate for build_mode as well as in dialogfe
56 and GenDialog. other gendialog updates as well. kernel updates untested.
57
58 14 Jun 2005; Robin H. Johnson <robbat2@gentoo.org>
59 src/GLIInstallProfile.py:
60 Change structure of etc-portage stuff. The serialization was broken before my
61 last commit, and I am the only person that's ever used it. The new schema is
62 as follows:
63 <etc-portage>
64 <file name="package.mask"/>
65 <file name="package.unmask">
66 <entry atom="sys-kernel/openmosix-sources"/>
67 </file>
68 <file name="package.use">
69 <entry atom="sys-libs/db">
70 -java
71 </entry>
72 <entry atom="dev-libs/cyrus-sasl">
73 -ldap
74 </entry>
75 </file>
76 </etc-portage>
77
78
79 13 Jun 2005; Robin H. Johnson <robbat2@gentoo.org>
80 src/GLIInstallProfile.py:
81 Add new entry for gli-profile/kernel-build-method item. Add missing
82 serialize_etc_portage (temporary). Make serialize_make_conf always print the
83 keys in the same order.
84
85 13 Jun 2005; Robin H. Johnson <robbat2@gentoo.org>
86 src/GLIArchitectureTemplate.py:
87 Clean up commenting used by _edit_config(), and fix bug where wrong comment
88 was repeatedly appended to make.conf.
89
90 13 Jun 2005; Robin H. Johnson <robbat2@gentoo.org>
91 src/GLIArchitectureTemplate.py:
92 Put some Linux-2.6 specific code under a if statement. Store list of
93 successfully mounted swap device for using swapoff. Add proper error checking
94 to install_packages and install_filesystem_tools. Fixed namespace conflicts on
95 'file'. Clean up some redundant code (thanks to pychecker).'
96
97 13 Jun 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
98 Fix typos: get_extended() instead of get_extended_partition(). Added
99 list_mirrors() and list_stage_tarballs_from_mirror() functions to GLIUtility.
100 Change _emerge("sync") call to direct call to spawn to avoid 'emerge -k sync'
101
102 12 Jun 2005; John N. Laliberte <allanonjl@gentoo.org>
103 GLIInstallProfile.py: add missing set for dhcp_options if a tuple is passed
104 in add_network_interface.
105
106 12 Jun 2005; Robin H. Johnson <robbat2@gentoo.org> src/GLIArchitectureTemplate.py:
107 ensure PORTAGE_TMPDIR/PORT_LOGDIR/PORTDIR_OVERLAY/PKGDIR exist prior to any
108 usage - this caused a failure for stage1/stage2 previously. swapoff for swap
109 space at end of install. Mount /dev, /dev/shm, /dev/pts and /sys during
110 prepare_chroot.
111
112 11 Jun 2005; Robin H. Johnson <robbat2@gentoo.org> +src/cli/clife.py,
113 +src/cli/README, +src/fe/installer-cli, +src/fe/installer-dialog,
114 +src/fe/installer-gtk:
115 Add new automated CLI frontend. Add scripts that are the intended means to
116 use each frontend.
117
118 11 Jun 2005; Robin H. Johnson <robbat2@gentoo.org>
119 src/GLIClientController.py:
120 Add null type to network config, for cases where the interface is already up
121 and should not be touched (netboot for example).
122
123 11 Jun 2005; Robin H. Johnson <robbat2@gentoo.org>
124 src/GLIArchitectureTemplate.py:
125 pcmcia is not a variable name for a call to _add_to_runlevel, it should be a
126 string!. Try to use binary packages if available by default.
127
128 11 Jun 2005; Robin H. Johnson <robbat2@gentoo.org>
129 src/GLIArchitectureTemplate.py:
130 More error checking for _add_to_runlevel, to ensure that the init script
131 actually exists before we try to add it. set_services phase must take place
132 after the package installation, otherwise the init scripts might not exist.
133 Find the correct init script for the cron and logging daemons, and add that
134 instead of the package atom.
135
136 11 Jun 2005; Robin H. Johnson <robbat2@gentoo.org>
137 src/GLIArchitectureTemplate.py:
138 Fix up _edit_config so that it works if the file doesn't already exist. Fix
139 usage of 'file' to 'contents' for the variable name, as it shadows
140 __builtin__.file.
141
142 11 Jun 2005; Robin H. Johnson <robbat2@gentoo.org>
143 src/GLIArchitectureTemplate.py:
144 Add MTA install code, and include MTA install phase. Ensure

146 for 'none' kernel config for build_kernel phase. Put kernel_script in
147 /var/tmp instead of /root for build_kernel phase.
148

150 Rename mta variables to match syslog/cron variables.
151
152 11 Jun 2005; Robin H. Johnson <robbat2@gentoo.org>
153 src/GLIArchitectureTemplate.py, src/templates/x86ArchitectureTemplate.py,
154 src/.cvsignore, src/fe/dialog/.cvsignore, src/fe/gtk/.cvsignore,
155 src/fe/net/client/.cvsignore, src/fe/net/server/.cvsignore,
156 src/templates/.cvsignore, src/tests/.cvsignore:
157 Refactor partition formatting again to include error checking. Allow 'none'
158 for kernel and bootloader specifications. Add .cvsignore files for .py[co].
159

167
168 11 Jun 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>

170 be executable.
171
172 10 Jun 2005; Scott Myron <samyron@gentoo.org>
173 Fixed one of the FIXME's in the ClientConfiguration. There is now some
174 error checking when you call set_architecture_template.
175
176 10 Jun 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
177 moved the mkfsopts input to the partition options menu instead of the during
178 the creation process. updated GenDialog to say it supports reiserfs v3.
179
