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 fix for unused value in form in dialog.py and changed heights.
10 fix GenDialog forms.
11
12 25 Jun 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
13 Changed hostname/domainname for new baselayout.
14 Changed _add_to_runlevel errors to logs.
15 Updated TODO list to show status of GenDialog
16 More updates to GenDialog including two checklists that probably won't work.
17 update IP to use comma-separated list instead of space separated for services.
18
19 24 Jun 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
20 Add dhcp_options to the CC, CConfig, and GenDialog. More overall changes to
21 GenDialog as it gets closer to completion.
22
23 22 Jun 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
24 Modify get_eth_info() to take a full interface name (eth0 fex). float()
25 instead of int() in add_partition_device_partition() for minor (closes 96804)
26
27 21 Jun 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
28 Changed setup_network_post to check for 'interfaces[interface][0] != "dhcp"'
29 instead of 'interfaces[interface][1]' since DHCP uses that field for its
30 options. setup_network_post() writes custom DHCP options to /etc/conf.d/net.
31
32 20 Jun 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
33 Apply spawn() patch from #96644 (with minor changes). Make sure the return
34 value from all spawn() calls is checked with GLIUtility.exitsuccess(). Fix
35 small error with <pipe>.close() returning None. Fix space vs. tab issue.
36 Fix undefined variable 'output' issue in spawn().
37
38 20 Jun 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
39 More updates to GenDialog and gli-d.
40
41 19 Jun 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
42 Modify list_mirrors() to return a list of mirror URL/name pairs.
43
44 19 Jun 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
45 Adding gli-dialog.py. Updates to GenDialog. Added function to GLIUtility to
46 get subarch.
47
48 16 Jun 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
49 Backend partitioning will create disklabel is none exists. Installprofile
50 defaults to "" now instead of "msdos" for disklabel type. Fix for
51 mount_local_partitions() to remember device along with minor in the
52 parts_to_mount dict (closes #96319). mount_local_partitions() cleanups and
53 add else block to log unsupported netmount types to mount_network_shares()
54
55 15 Jun 2005; Robin H. Johnson <robbat2@gentoo.org>
56 src/GLIArchitectureTemplate.py:
57 Refactor kernel_compile common stuff, fix 2.4 build process.
58 src/fe/cli/clife.py:
59 Logging system.

61 Add comments about re-writes needed for boxes without sysfs.
62
63 15 Jun 2005; Robin H. Johnson <robbat2@gentoo.org>
64 src/GLIArchitectureTemplate.py:
65 2.4 support (pull version data from /usr/src/linux/Makefile), incl.
66 'make dep' call for custom compile. build_mode support for prepare-only and
67 none types completed. custom compile function chains shell functions in
68 spawned script, to allow for catching all errors.
69
70 15 Jun 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
71 fixed up build_kernel in ArchTemplate for build_mode as well as in dialogfe
72 and GenDialog. other gendialog updates as well. kernel updates untested.
73
74 14 Jun 2005; Robin H. Johnson <robbat2@gentoo.org>
75 src/GLIInstallProfile.py:
76 Change structure of etc-portage stuff. The serialization was broken before my
77 last commit, and I am the only person that's ever used it. The new schema is
78 as follows:
79 <etc-portage>
80 <file name="package.mask"/>
81 <file name="package.unmask">
82 <entry atom="sys-kernel/openmosix-sources"/>
83 </file>
84 <file name="package.use">
85 <entry atom="sys-libs/db">
86 -java
87 </entry>
88 <entry atom="dev-libs/cyrus-sasl">
89 -ldap
90 </entry>
91 </file>
92 </etc-portage>
93
94
95 13 Jun 2005; Robin H. Johnson <robbat2@gentoo.org>
96 src/GLIInstallProfile.py:
97 Add new entry for gli-profile/kernel-build-method item. Add missing
98 serialize_etc_portage (temporary). Make serialize_make_conf always print the
99 keys in the same order.
100
101 13 Jun 2005; Robin H. Johnson <robbat2@gentoo.org>
102 src/GLIArchitectureTemplate.py:
103 Clean up commenting used by _edit_config(), and fix bug where wrong comment
104 was repeatedly appended to make.conf.
105
106 13 Jun 2005; Robin H. Johnson <robbat2@gentoo.org>
107 src/GLIArchitectureTemplate.py:
108 Put some Linux-2.6 specific code under a if statement. Store list of
109 successfully mounted swap device for using swapoff. Add proper error checking
110 to install_packages and install_filesystem_tools. Fixed namespace conflicts on
111 'file'. Clean up some redundant code (thanks to pychecker).'
112
113 13 Jun 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
114 Fix typos: get_extended() instead of get_extended_partition(). Added
115 list_mirrors() and list_stage_tarballs_from_mirror() functions to GLIUtility.
116 Change _emerge("sync") call to direct call to spawn to avoid 'emerge -k sync'
117
118 12 Jun 2005; John N. Laliberte <allanonjl@gentoo.org>
119 GLIInstallProfile.py: add missing set for dhcp_options if a tuple is passed
120 in add_network_interface.
121
122 12 Jun 2005; Robin H. Johnson <robbat2@gentoo.org> src/GLIArchitectureTemplate.py:
123 ensure PORTAGE_TMPDIR/PORT_LOGDIR/PORTDIR_OVERLAY/PKGDIR exist prior to any
124 usage - this caused a failure for stage1/stage2 previously. swapoff for swap
125 space at end of install. Mount /dev, /dev/shm, /dev/pts and /sys during
126 prepare_chroot.
127
128 11 Jun 2005; Robin H. Johnson <robbat2@gentoo.org> +src/cli/clife.py,
129 +src/cli/README, +src/fe/installer-cli, +src/fe/installer-dialog,
130 +src/fe/installer-gtk:
131 Add new automated CLI frontend. Add scripts that are the intended means to
132 use each frontend.
133
134 11 Jun 2005; Robin H. Johnson <robbat2@gentoo.org>
135 src/GLIClientController.py:
136 Add null type to network config, for cases where the interface is already up
137 and should not be touched (netboot for example).
138
139 11 Jun 2005; Robin H. Johnson <robbat2@gentoo.org>
140 src/GLIArchitectureTemplate.py:
141 pcmcia is not a variable name for a call to _add_to_runlevel, it should be a
142 string!. Try to use binary packages if available by default.
143
144 11 Jun 2005; Robin H. Johnson <robbat2@gentoo.org>
145 src/GLIArchitectureTemplate.py:
146 More error checking for _add_to_runlevel, to ensure that the init script
147 actually exists before we try to add it. set_services phase must take place
148 after the package installation, otherwise the init scripts might not exist.
149 Find the correct init script for the cron and logging daemons, and add that
150 instead of the package atom.
151
152 11 Jun 2005; Robin H. Johnson <robbat2@gentoo.org>
153 src/GLIArchitectureTemplate.py:
154 Fix up _edit_config so that it works if the file doesn't already exist. Fix
155 usage of 'file' to 'contents' for the variable name, as it shadows
156 __builtin__.file.
157
158 11 Jun 2005; Robin H. Johnson <robbat2@gentoo.org>
159 src/GLIArchitectureTemplate.py:
160 Add MTA install code, and include MTA install phase. Ensure
161 PORT_LOGDIR/PORTDIR_OVERLAY are created in _emerge if needed. Add support
162 for 'none' kernel config for build_kernel phase. Put kernel_script in
163 /var/tmp instead of /root for build_kernel phase.
164
165 11 Jun 2005; Robin H. Johnson <robbat2@gentoo.org> src/GLIInstallProfile.py:
166 Rename mta variables to match syslog/cron variables.
167
168 11 Jun 2005; Robin H. Johnson <robbat2@gentoo.org>
169 src/GLIArchitectureTemplate.py, src/templates/x86ArchitectureTemplate.py,
170 src/.cvsignore, src/fe/dialog/.cvsignore, src/fe/gtk/.cvsignore,
171 src/fe/net/client/.cvsignore, src/fe/net/server/.cvsignore,
172 src/templates/.cvsignore, src/tests/.cvsignore:
173 Refactor partition formatting again to include error checking. Allow 'none'
174 for kernel and bootloader specifications. Add .cvsignore files for .py[co].
175
176 11 Jun 2005; Robin H. Johnson <robbat2@gentoo.org>

183
184 11 Jun 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
185 Move /tmp/spawn.sh and /tmp/post-install to /var/tmp since that should always
186 be executable.
187
188 10 Jun 2005; Scott Myron <samyron@gentoo.org>
189 Fixed one of the FIXME's in the ClientConfiguration. There is now some
190 error checking when you call set_architecture_template.
191
192 10 Jun 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
193 moved the mkfsopts input to the partition options menu instead of the during
194 the creation process. updated GenDialog to say it supports reiserfs v3.
195
