5*GLI-0.01 (9 Feb 2004) 5*GLI-0.1_alpha (4 Apr 2005)
6
7 26 Jun 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
8 added dialog.py to /src temporarily until it gets accepted upstream.
9
10 25 Jun 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
11 Changed hostname/domainname for new baselayout.
12 Changed _add_to_runlevel errors to logs.
13 Updated TODO list to show status of GenDialog
14 More updates to GenDialog including two checklists that probably won't work.
15 update IP to use comma-separated list instead of space separated for services.
16
17 24 Jun 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
18 Add dhcp_options to the CC, CConfig, and GenDialog. More overall changes to
19 GenDialog as it gets closer to completion.
20
21 22 Jun 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
22 Modify get_eth_info() to take a full interface name (eth0 fex). float()
23 instead of int() in add_partition_device_partition() for minor (closes 96804)
24
25 21 Jun 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
26 Changed setup_network_post to check for 'interfaces[interface][0] != "dhcp"'
27 instead of 'interfaces[interface][1]' since DHCP uses that field for its
28 options. setup_network_post() writes custom DHCP options to /etc/conf.d/net.
29
30 20 Jun 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
31 Apply spawn() patch from #96644 (with minor changes). Make sure the return
32 value from all spawn() calls is checked with GLIUtility.exitsuccess(). Fix
33 small error with <pipe>.close() returning None. Fix space vs. tab issue.
34 Fix undefined variable 'output' issue in spawn().
35
36 20 Jun 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
37 More updates to GenDialog and gli-d.
38
39 19 Jun 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>

41
42 19 Jun 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
43 Adding gli-dialog.py. Updates to GenDialog. Added function to GLIUtility to
44 get subarch.
45
46 16 Jun 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
47 Backend partitioning will create disklabel is none exists. Installprofile
48 defaults to "" now instead of "msdos" for disklabel type. Fix for
49 mount_local_partitions() to remember device along with minor in the
50 parts_to_mount dict (closes #96319). mount_local_partitions() cleanups and
51 add else block to log unsupported netmount types to mount_network_shares()
52
53 15 Jun 2005; Robin H. Johnson <robbat2@gentoo.org>
54 src/GLIArchitectureTemplate.py:
55 Refactor kernel_compile common stuff, fix 2.4 build process.

59 Add comments about re-writes needed for boxes without sysfs.
60
61 15 Jun 2005; Robin H. Johnson <robbat2@gentoo.org>
62 src/GLIArchitectureTemplate.py:
63 2.4 support (pull version data from /usr/src/linux/Makefile), incl.
64 'make dep' call for custom compile. build_mode support for prepare-only and
65 none types completed. custom compile function chains shell functions in
66 spawned script, to allow for catching all errors.
67
68 15 Jun 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
69 fixed up build_kernel in ArchTemplate for build_mode as well as in dialogfe
70 and GenDialog. other gendialog updates as well. kernel updates untested.
71
72 14 Jun 2005; Robin H. Johnson <robbat2@gentoo.org>
73 src/GLIInstallProfile.py:
74 Change structure of etc-portage stuff. The serialization was broken before my
75 last commit, and I am the only person that's ever used it. The new schema is
76 as follows:
77 <etc-portage>
78 <file name="package.mask"/>
79 <file name="package.unmask">
80 <entry atom="sys-kernel/openmosix-sources"/>
81 </file>
82 <file name="package.use">
83 <entry atom="sys-libs/db">
84 -java
85 </entry>
86 <entry atom="dev-libs/cyrus-sasl">
87 -ldap
88 </entry>
89 </file>
90 </etc-portage>
91
92
93 13 Jun 2005; Robin H. Johnson <robbat2@gentoo.org>
94 src/GLIInstallProfile.py:
95 Add new entry for gli-profile/kernel-build-method item. Add missing
96 serialize_etc_portage (temporary). Make serialize_make_conf always print the
97 keys in the same order.
98
99 13 Jun 2005; Robin H. Johnson <robbat2@gentoo.org>
100 src/GLIArchitectureTemplate.py:
101 Clean up commenting used by _edit_config(), and fix bug where wrong comment
102 was repeatedly appended to make.conf.
103
104 13 Jun 2005; Robin H. Johnson <robbat2@gentoo.org>
105 src/GLIArchitectureTemplate.py:
106 Put some Linux-2.6 specific code under a if statement. Store list of
107 successfully mounted swap device for using swapoff. Add proper error checking
108 to install_packages and install_filesystem_tools. Fixed namespace conflicts on
109 'file'. Clean up some redundant code (thanks to pychecker).'
110
111 13 Jun 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
112 Fix typos: get_extended() instead of get_extended_partition(). Added
113 list_mirrors() and list_stage_tarballs_from_mirror() functions to GLIUtility.
114 Change _emerge("sync") call to direct call to spawn to avoid 'emerge -k sync'
115
116 12 Jun 2005; John N. Laliberte <allanonjl@gentoo.org>
117 GLIInstallProfile.py: add missing set for dhcp_options if a tuple is passed
118 in add_network_interface.
119
120 12 Jun 2005; Robin H. Johnson <robbat2@gentoo.org> src/GLIArchitectureTemplate.py:
121 ensure PORTAGE_TMPDIR/PORT_LOGDIR/PORTDIR_OVERLAY/PKGDIR exist prior to any
122 usage - this caused a failure for stage1/stage2 previously. swapoff for swap
123 space at end of install. Mount /dev, /dev/shm, /dev/pts and /sys during
124 prepare_chroot.
125
126 11 Jun 2005; Robin H. Johnson <robbat2@gentoo.org> +src/cli/clife.py,
127 +src/cli/README, +src/fe/installer-cli, +src/fe/installer-dialog,
128 +src/fe/installer-gtk:
129 Add new automated CLI frontend. Add scripts that are the intended means to
130 use each frontend.
131
132 11 Jun 2005; Robin H. Johnson <robbat2@gentoo.org>
133 src/GLIClientController.py:
134 Add null type to network config, for cases where the interface is already up
135 and should not be touched (netboot for example).
136
137 11 Jun 2005; Robin H. Johnson <robbat2@gentoo.org>
138 src/GLIArchitectureTemplate.py:
139 pcmcia is not a variable name for a call to _add_to_runlevel, it should be a
140 string!. Try to use binary packages if available by default.
141
142 11 Jun 2005; Robin H. Johnson <robbat2@gentoo.org>
143 src/GLIArchitectureTemplate.py:
144 More error checking for _add_to_runlevel, to ensure that the init script
145 actually exists before we try to add it. set_services phase must take place
146 after the package installation, otherwise the init scripts might not exist.
147 Find the correct init script for the cron and logging daemons, and add that
148 instead of the package atom.
149
150 11 Jun 2005; Robin H. Johnson <robbat2@gentoo.org>
151 src/GLIArchitectureTemplate.py:
152 Fix up _edit_config so that it works if the file doesn't already exist. Fix
153 usage of 'file' to 'contents' for the variable name, as it shadows
154 __builtin__.file.
155
156 11 Jun 2005; Robin H. Johnson <robbat2@gentoo.org>
157 src/GLIArchitectureTemplate.py:
158 Add MTA install code, and include MTA install phase. Ensure
159 PORT_LOGDIR/PORTDIR_OVERLAY are created in _emerge if needed. Add support
160 for 'none' kernel config for build_kernel phase. Put kernel_script in
161 /var/tmp instead of /root for build_kernel phase.
162
163 11 Jun 2005; Robin H. Johnson <robbat2@gentoo.org> src/GLIInstallProfile.py:
164 Rename mta variables to match syslog/cron variables.
165
166 11 Jun 2005; Robin H. Johnson <robbat2@gentoo.org>
167 src/GLIArchitectureTemplate.py, src/templates/x86ArchitectureTemplate.py,
168 src/.cvsignore, src/fe/dialog/.cvsignore, src/fe/gtk/.cvsignore,
169 src/fe/net/client/.cvsignore, src/fe/net/server/.cvsignore,
170 src/templates/.cvsignore, src/tests/.cvsignore:
171 Refactor partition formatting again to include error checking. Allow 'none'
172 for kernel and bootloader specifications. Add .cvsignore files for .py[co].
173
174 11 Jun 2005; Robin H. Johnson <robbat2@gentoo.org>

181
182 11 Jun 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
183 Move /tmp/spawn.sh and /tmp/post-install to /var/tmp since that should always
184 be executable.
185
186 10 Jun 2005; Scott Myron <samyron@gentoo.org>
187 Fixed one of the FIXME's in the ClientConfiguration. There is now some
188 error checking when you call set_architecture_template.
189
190 10 Jun 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
191 moved the mkfsopts input to the partition options menu instead of the during
192 the creation process. updated GenDialog to say it supports reiserfs v3.
193
