5*GLI-0.01 (9 Feb 2004) 5*GLI-0.1_alpha (4 Apr 2005)
6
7 27 Jun 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
8 Roll rc_conf and make_conf into master etc_files structure in InstallProfile.
9
10 27 Jun 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
11 fix extra entry in list_mirrors()
12 beginning internationalization runthrough.
13
14 26 Jun 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
15 added dialog.py to /src temporarily until it gets accepted upstream.
16 fix for unused value in form in dialog.py and changed heights.
17 fix GenDialog forms.
18
19 25 Jun 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
20 Changed hostname/domainname for new baselayout.
21 Changed _add_to_runlevel errors to logs.
22 Updated TODO list to show status of GenDialog
23 More updates to GenDialog including two checklists that probably won't work.
24 update IP to use comma-separated list instead of space separated for services.
25
26 24 Jun 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
27 Add dhcp_options to the CC, CConfig, and GenDialog. More overall changes to
28 GenDialog as it gets closer to completion.
29
30 22 Jun 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
31 Modify get_eth_info() to take a full interface name (eth0 fex). float()
32 instead of int() in add_partition_device_partition() for minor (closes 96804)
33
34 21 Jun 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
35 Changed setup_network_post to check for 'interfaces[interface][0] != "dhcp"'
36 instead of 'interfaces[interface][1]' since DHCP uses that field for its
37 options. setup_network_post() writes custom DHCP options to /etc/conf.d/net.
38
39 20 Jun 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
40 Apply spawn() patch from #96644 (with minor changes). Make sure the return
41 value from all spawn() calls is checked with GLIUtility.exitsuccess(). Fix
42 small error with <pipe>.close() returning None. Fix space vs. tab issue.
43 Fix undefined variable 'output' issue in spawn().
44
45 20 Jun 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>

53 get subarch.
54
55 16 Jun 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
56 Backend partitioning will create disklabel is none exists. Installprofile
57 defaults to "" now instead of "msdos" for disklabel type. Fix for
58 mount_local_partitions() to remember device along with minor in the
59 parts_to_mount dict (closes #96319). mount_local_partitions() cleanups and
60 add else block to log unsupported netmount types to mount_network_shares()
61
62 15 Jun 2005; Robin H. Johnson <robbat2@gentoo.org>
63 src/GLIArchitectureTemplate.py:
64 Refactor kernel_compile common stuff, fix 2.4 build process.

68 Add comments about re-writes needed for boxes without sysfs.
69
70 15 Jun 2005; Robin H. Johnson <robbat2@gentoo.org>
71 src/GLIArchitectureTemplate.py:
72 2.4 support (pull version data from /usr/src/linux/Makefile), incl.
73 'make dep' call for custom compile. build_mode support for prepare-only and
74 none types completed. custom compile function chains shell functions in
75 spawned script, to allow for catching all errors.
76
77 15 Jun 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
78 fixed up build_kernel in ArchTemplate for build_mode as well as in dialogfe
79 and GenDialog. other gendialog updates as well. kernel updates untested.
80
81 14 Jun 2005; Robin H. Johnson <robbat2@gentoo.org>
82 src/GLIInstallProfile.py:
83 Change structure of etc-portage stuff. The serialization was broken before my
84 last commit, and I am the only person that's ever used it. The new schema is
85 as follows:
86 <etc-portage>
87 <file name="package.mask"/>
88 <file name="package.unmask">
89 <entry atom="sys-kernel/openmosix-sources"/>
90 </file>
91 <file name="package.use">
92 <entry atom="sys-libs/db">
93 -java
94 </entry>
95 <entry atom="dev-libs/cyrus-sasl">
96 -ldap
97 </entry>
98 </file>
99 </etc-portage>
100
101
102 13 Jun 2005; Robin H. Johnson <robbat2@gentoo.org>
103 src/GLIInstallProfile.py:
104 Add new entry for gli-profile/kernel-build-method item. Add missing
105 serialize_etc_portage (temporary). Make serialize_make_conf always print the
106 keys in the same order.
107
108 13 Jun 2005; Robin H. Johnson <robbat2@gentoo.org>
109 src/GLIArchitectureTemplate.py:
110 Clean up commenting used by _edit_config(), and fix bug where wrong comment
111 was repeatedly appended to make.conf.
112
113 13 Jun 2005; Robin H. Johnson <robbat2@gentoo.org>
114 src/GLIArchitectureTemplate.py:
115 Put some Linux-2.6 specific code under a if statement. Store list of
116 successfully mounted swap device for using swapoff. Add proper error checking
117 to install_packages and install_filesystem_tools. Fixed namespace conflicts on
118 'file'. Clean up some redundant code (thanks to pychecker).'
119
120 13 Jun 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
121 Fix typos: get_extended() instead of get_extended_partition(). Added
122 list_mirrors() and list_stage_tarballs_from_mirror() functions to GLIUtility.
123 Change _emerge("sync") call to direct call to spawn to avoid 'emerge -k sync'
124
125 12 Jun 2005; John N. Laliberte <allanonjl@gentoo.org>
126 GLIInstallProfile.py: add missing set for dhcp_options if a tuple is passed
127 in add_network_interface.
128
129 12 Jun 2005; Robin H. Johnson <robbat2@gentoo.org> src/GLIArchitectureTemplate.py:
130 ensure PORTAGE_TMPDIR/PORT_LOGDIR/PORTDIR_OVERLAY/PKGDIR exist prior to any
131 usage - this caused a failure for stage1/stage2 previously. swapoff for swap
132 space at end of install. Mount /dev, /dev/shm, /dev/pts and /sys during
133 prepare_chroot.
134
135 11 Jun 2005; Robin H. Johnson <robbat2@gentoo.org> +src/cli/clife.py,
136 +src/cli/README, +src/fe/installer-cli, +src/fe/installer-dialog,
137 +src/fe/installer-gtk:

139 use each frontend.
140
141 11 Jun 2005; Robin H. Johnson <robbat2@gentoo.org>
142 src/GLIClientController.py:
143 Add null type to network config, for cases where the interface is already up
144 and should not be touched (netboot for example).
145
146 11 Jun 2005; Robin H. Johnson <robbat2@gentoo.org>
147 src/GLIArchitectureTemplate.py:
148 pcmcia is not a variable name for a call to _add_to_runlevel, it should be a
149 string!. Try to use binary packages if available by default.
150
151 11 Jun 2005; Robin H. Johnson <robbat2@gentoo.org>
152 src/GLIArchitectureTemplate.py:
153 More error checking for _add_to_runlevel, to ensure that the init script
154 actually exists before we try to add it. set_services phase must take place
155 after the package installation, otherwise the init scripts might not exist.
156 Find the correct init script for the cron and logging daemons, and add that
157 instead of the package atom.
158
159 11 Jun 2005; Robin H. Johnson <robbat2@gentoo.org>
160 src/GLIArchitectureTemplate.py:
161 Fix up _edit_config so that it works if the file doesn't already exist. Fix
162 usage of 'file' to 'contents' for the variable name, as it shadows
163 __builtin__.file.
164
165 11 Jun 2005; Robin H. Johnson <robbat2@gentoo.org>
166 src/GLIArchitectureTemplate.py:
167 Add MTA install code, and include MTA install phase. Ensure
168 PORT_LOGDIR/PORTDIR_OVERLAY are created in _emerge if needed. Add support
169 for 'none' kernel config for build_kernel phase. Put kernel_script in
170 /var/tmp instead of /root for build_kernel phase.
171
172 11 Jun 2005; Robin H. Johnson <robbat2@gentoo.org> src/GLIInstallProfile.py:
173 Rename mta variables to match syslog/cron variables.
174
175 11 Jun 2005; Robin H. Johnson <robbat2@gentoo.org>
176 src/GLIArchitectureTemplate.py, src/templates/x86ArchitectureTemplate.py,
177 src/.cvsignore, src/fe/dialog/.cvsignore, src/fe/gtk/.cvsignore,
178 src/fe/net/client/.cvsignore, src/fe/net/server/.cvsignore,
179 src/templates/.cvsignore, src/tests/.cvsignore:
180 Refactor partition formatting again to include error checking. Allow 'none'
181 for kernel and bootloader specifications. Add .cvsignore files for .py[co].
182

190
191 11 Jun 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>

193 be executable.
194
195 10 Jun 2005; Scott Myron <samyron@gentoo.org>
196 Fixed one of the FIXME's in the ClientConfiguration. There is now some
197 error checking when you call set_architecture_template.
198
199 10 Jun 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
200 moved the mkfsopts input to the partition options menu instead of the during
201 the creation process. updated GenDialog to say it supports reiserfs v3.
202
