5*GLI-0.01 (9 Feb 2004) 5*GLI-0.1_alpha (4 Apr 2005)
6
7 24 Jun 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
8 Add dhcp_options to the CC, CConfig, and GenDialog. More overall changes to
9 GenDialog as it gets closer to completion.
10
11 22 Jun 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
12 Modify get_eth_info() to take a full interface name (eth0 fex). float()
13 instead of int() in add_partition_device_partition() for minor (closes 96804)
14
15 21 Jun 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
16 Changed setup_network_post to check for 'interfaces[interface][0] != "dhcp"'
17 instead of 'interfaces[interface][1]' since DHCP uses that field for its
18 options. setup_network_post() writes custom DHCP options to /etc/conf.d/net.
19
20 20 Jun 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
21 Apply spawn() patch from #96644 (with minor changes). Make sure the return
22 value from all spawn() calls is checked with GLIUtility.exitsuccess(). Fix
23 small error with <pipe>.close() returning None. Fix space vs. tab issue.
24 Fix undefined variable 'output' issue in spawn().
25
26 20 Jun 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
27 More updates to GenDialog and gli-d.
28
29 19 Jun 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
30 Modify list_mirrors() to return a list of mirror URL/name pairs.
31
32 19 Jun 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
33 Adding gli-dialog.py. Updates to GenDialog. Added function to GLIUtility to
34 get subarch.
35
36 16 Jun 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
37 Backend partitioning will create disklabel is none exists. Installprofile
38 defaults to "" now instead of "msdos" for disklabel type. Fix for
39 mount_local_partitions() to remember device along with minor in the
40 parts_to_mount dict (closes #96319). mount_local_partitions() cleanups and
41 add else block to log unsupported netmount types to mount_network_shares()
42
43 15 Jun 2005; Robin H. Johnson <robbat2@gentoo.org>
44 src/GLIArchitectureTemplate.py:
45 Refactor kernel_compile common stuff, fix 2.4 build process.

49 Add comments about re-writes needed for boxes without sysfs.
50
51 15 Jun 2005; Robin H. Johnson <robbat2@gentoo.org>
52 src/GLIArchitectureTemplate.py:
53 2.4 support (pull version data from /usr/src/linux/Makefile), incl.
54 'make dep' call for custom compile. build_mode support for prepare-only and
55 none types completed. custom compile function chains shell functions in
56 spawned script, to allow for catching all errors.
57
58 15 Jun 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
59 fixed up build_kernel in ArchTemplate for build_mode as well as in dialogfe
60 and GenDialog. other gendialog updates as well. kernel updates untested.
61
62 14 Jun 2005; Robin H. Johnson <robbat2@gentoo.org>
63 src/GLIInstallProfile.py:
64 Change structure of etc-portage stuff. The serialization was broken before my
65 last commit, and I am the only person that's ever used it. The new schema is
66 as follows:
67 <etc-portage>
68 <file name="package.mask"/>
69 <file name="package.unmask">
70 <entry atom="sys-kernel/openmosix-sources"/>
71 </file>
72 <file name="package.use">
73 <entry atom="sys-libs/db">
74 -java
75 </entry>
76 <entry atom="dev-libs/cyrus-sasl">
77 -ldap
78 </entry>
79 </file>
80 </etc-portage>
81
82
83 13 Jun 2005; Robin H. Johnson <robbat2@gentoo.org>
84 src/GLIInstallProfile.py:
85 Add new entry for gli-profile/kernel-build-method item. Add missing
86 serialize_etc_portage (temporary). Make serialize_make_conf always print the
87 keys in the same order.
88
89 13 Jun 2005; Robin H. Johnson <robbat2@gentoo.org>
90 src/GLIArchitectureTemplate.py:
91 Clean up commenting used by _edit_config(), and fix bug where wrong comment
92 was repeatedly appended to make.conf.
93
94 13 Jun 2005; Robin H. Johnson <robbat2@gentoo.org>
95 src/GLIArchitectureTemplate.py:
96 Put some Linux-2.6 specific code under a if statement. Store list of
97 successfully mounted swap device for using swapoff. Add proper error checking
98 to install_packages and install_filesystem_tools. Fixed namespace conflicts on
99 'file'. Clean up some redundant code (thanks to pychecker).'
100
101 13 Jun 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
102 Fix typos: get_extended() instead of get_extended_partition(). Added
103 list_mirrors() and list_stage_tarballs_from_mirror() functions to GLIUtility.
104 Change _emerge("sync") call to direct call to spawn to avoid 'emerge -k sync'
105
106 12 Jun 2005; John N. Laliberte <allanonjl@gentoo.org>
107 GLIInstallProfile.py: add missing set for dhcp_options if a tuple is passed
108 in add_network_interface.
109
110 12 Jun 2005; Robin H. Johnson <robbat2@gentoo.org> src/GLIArchitectureTemplate.py:
111 ensure PORTAGE_TMPDIR/PORT_LOGDIR/PORTDIR_OVERLAY/PKGDIR exist prior to any
112 usage - this caused a failure for stage1/stage2 previously. swapoff for swap
113 space at end of install. Mount /dev, /dev/shm, /dev/pts and /sys during
114 prepare_chroot.
115
116 11 Jun 2005; Robin H. Johnson <robbat2@gentoo.org> +src/cli/clife.py,
117 +src/cli/README, +src/fe/installer-cli, +src/fe/installer-dialog,
118 +src/fe/installer-gtk:
119 Add new automated CLI frontend. Add scripts that are the intended means to
120 use each frontend.
121
122 11 Jun 2005; Robin H. Johnson <robbat2@gentoo.org>
123 src/GLIClientController.py:
124 Add null type to network config, for cases where the interface is already up
125 and should not be touched (netboot for example).
126
127 11 Jun 2005; Robin H. Johnson <robbat2@gentoo.org>
128 src/GLIArchitectureTemplate.py:
129 pcmcia is not a variable name for a call to _add_to_runlevel, it should be a
130 string!. Try to use binary packages if available by default.
131
132 11 Jun 2005; Robin H. Johnson <robbat2@gentoo.org>
133 src/GLIArchitectureTemplate.py:
134 More error checking for _add_to_runlevel, to ensure that the init script
135 actually exists before we try to add it. set_services phase must take place
136 after the package installation, otherwise the init scripts might not exist.
137 Find the correct init script for the cron and logging daemons, and add that
138 instead of the package atom.
139
140 11 Jun 2005; Robin H. Johnson <robbat2@gentoo.org>
141 src/GLIArchitectureTemplate.py:
142 Fix up _edit_config so that it works if the file doesn't already exist. Fix
143 usage of 'file' to 'contents' for the variable name, as it shadows
144 __builtin__.file.
145
146 11 Jun 2005; Robin H. Johnson <robbat2@gentoo.org>
147 src/GLIArchitectureTemplate.py:
148 Add MTA install code, and include MTA install phase. Ensure
149 PORT_LOGDIR/PORTDIR_OVERLAY are created in _emerge if needed. Add support
150 for 'none' kernel config for build_kernel phase. Put kernel_script in
151 /var/tmp instead of /root for build_kernel phase.
152
153 11 Jun 2005; Robin H. Johnson <robbat2@gentoo.org> src/GLIInstallProfile.py:
154 Rename mta variables to match syslog/cron variables.
155
156 11 Jun 2005; Robin H. Johnson <robbat2@gentoo.org>
157 src/GLIArchitectureTemplate.py, src/templates/x86ArchitectureTemplate.py,
158 src/.cvsignore, src/fe/dialog/.cvsignore, src/fe/gtk/.cvsignore,

160 src/templates/.cvsignore, src/tests/.cvsignore:
161 Refactor partition formatting again to include error checking. Allow 'none'
162 for kernel and bootloader specifications. Add .cvsignore files for .py[co].
163

171
172 11 Jun 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
173 Move /tmp/spawn.sh and /tmp/post-install to /var/tmp since that should always
174 be executable.
175
176 10 Jun 2005; Scott Myron <samyron@gentoo.org>
177 Fixed one of the FIXME's in the ClientConfiguration. There is now some
178 error checking when you call set_architecture_template.
179
180 10 Jun 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
181 moved the mkfsopts input to the partition options menu instead of the during
182 the creation process. updated GenDialog to say it supports reiserfs v3.
183
