8 Missing \ in sed in _get_packages_to_emerge()
9 Removed explicit emerging of hotplug and no longer add it to the runlevel.
10
11 28 Jun 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>

17 Check to see that _etc_files['make.conf'] exists in get_make_conf()
18 Only use float() in partition xml parsing code if type == "free"
19
20 28 Jun 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
21 finished almost all internationalization of GenDialog.
22 attempt at fixing rc.conf function. moved 3 generate functions out of
23 fe/gtk/RcDotConf and put them in Utility. fixed self bug.
24 added dialog.py to the fe/dialog directory so it actually gets used.
25
26 27 Jun 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
27 Roll rc_conf and make_conf into master etc_files structure in InstallProfile.
28
29 27 Jun 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
30 fix extra entry in list_mirrors()
31 beginning internationalization runthrough.
32
33 26 Jun 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
34 added dialog.py to /src temporarily until it gets accepted upstream.
35 fix for unused value in form in dialog.py and changed heights.
36 fix GenDialog forms.
37
38 25 Jun 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
39 Changed hostname/domainname for new baselayout.
40 Changed _add_to_runlevel errors to logs.
41 Updated TODO list to show status of GenDialog
42 More updates to GenDialog including two checklists that probably won't work.
43 update IP to use comma-separated list instead of space separated for services.
44
45 24 Jun 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
46 Add dhcp_options to the CC, CConfig, and GenDialog. More overall changes to
47 GenDialog as it gets closer to completion.
48
49 22 Jun 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
50 Modify get_eth_info() to take a full interface name (eth0 fex). float()
51 instead of int() in add_partition_device_partition() for minor (closes 96804)
52
53 21 Jun 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
54 Changed setup_network_post to check for 'interfaces[interface][0] != "dhcp"'
55 instead of 'interfaces[interface][1]' since DHCP uses that field for its
56 options. setup_network_post() writes custom DHCP options to /etc/conf.d/net.
57
58 20 Jun 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
59 Apply spawn() patch from #96644 (with minor changes). Make sure the return
60 value from all spawn() calls is checked with GLIUtility.exitsuccess(). Fix

72 get subarch.
73
74 16 Jun 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
75 Backend partitioning will create disklabel is none exists. Installprofile
76 defaults to "" now instead of "msdos" for disklabel type. Fix for
77 mount_local_partitions() to remember device along with minor in the
78 parts_to_mount dict (closes #96319). mount_local_partitions() cleanups and
79 add else block to log unsupported netmount types to mount_network_shares()
80
81 15 Jun 2005; Robin H. Johnson <robbat2@gentoo.org>
82 src/GLIArchitectureTemplate.py:

87 Add comments about re-writes needed for boxes without sysfs.
88
89 15 Jun 2005; Robin H. Johnson <robbat2@gentoo.org>
90 src/GLIArchitectureTemplate.py:
91 2.4 support (pull version data from /usr/src/linux/Makefile), incl.
92 'make dep' call for custom compile. build_mode support for prepare-only and
93 none types completed. custom compile function chains shell functions in
94 spawned script, to allow for catching all errors.
95
96 15 Jun 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
97 fixed up build_kernel in ArchTemplate for build_mode as well as in dialogfe
98 and GenDialog. other gendialog updates as well. kernel updates untested.
99
100 14 Jun 2005; Robin H. Johnson <robbat2@gentoo.org>
101 src/GLIInstallProfile.py:
102 Change structure of etc-portage stuff. The serialization was broken before my
103 last commit, and I am the only person that's ever used it. The new schema is
104 as follows:
105 <etc-portage>
106 <file name="package.mask"/>
107 <file name="package.unmask">
108 <entry atom="sys-kernel/openmosix-sources"/>
109 </file>
110 <file name="package.use">
111 <entry atom="sys-libs/db">
112 -java
113 </entry>
114 <entry atom="dev-libs/cyrus-sasl">
115 -ldap
116 </entry>
117 </file>
118 </etc-portage>
119
120
121 13 Jun 2005; Robin H. Johnson <robbat2@gentoo.org>
122 src/GLIInstallProfile.py:
123 Add new entry for gli-profile/kernel-build-method item. Add missing
124 serialize_etc_portage (temporary). Make serialize_make_conf always print the
125 keys in the same order.
126
127 13 Jun 2005; Robin H. Johnson <robbat2@gentoo.org>
128 src/GLIArchitectureTemplate.py:
129 Clean up commenting used by _edit_config(), and fix bug where wrong comment
130 was repeatedly appended to make.conf.
131
132 13 Jun 2005; Robin H. Johnson <robbat2@gentoo.org>
133 src/GLIArchitectureTemplate.py:
134 Put some Linux-2.6 specific code under a if statement. Store list of
135 successfully mounted swap device for using swapoff. Add proper error checking
136 to install_packages and install_filesystem_tools. Fixed namespace conflicts on
137 'file'. Clean up some redundant code (thanks to pychecker).'
138
139 13 Jun 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
140 Fix typos: get_extended() instead of get_extended_partition(). Added
141 list_mirrors() and list_stage_tarballs_from_mirror() functions to GLIUtility.
142 Change _emerge("sync") call to direct call to spawn to avoid 'emerge -k sync'
143
144 12 Jun 2005; John N. Laliberte <allanonjl@gentoo.org>
145 GLIInstallProfile.py: add missing set for dhcp_options if a tuple is passed
146 in add_network_interface.
147
148 12 Jun 2005; Robin H. Johnson <robbat2@gentoo.org> src/GLIArchitectureTemplate.py:
149 ensure PORTAGE_TMPDIR/PORT_LOGDIR/PORTDIR_OVERLAY/PKGDIR exist prior to any
150 usage - this caused a failure for stage1/stage2 previously. swapoff for swap
151 space at end of install. Mount /dev, /dev/shm, /dev/pts and /sys during
152 prepare_chroot.
153
154 11 Jun 2005; Robin H. Johnson <robbat2@gentoo.org> +src/cli/clife.py,
155 +src/cli/README, +src/fe/installer-cli, +src/fe/installer-dialog,
156 +src/fe/installer-gtk:
157 Add new automated CLI frontend. Add scripts that are the intended means to
158 use each frontend.
159
160 11 Jun 2005; Robin H. Johnson <robbat2@gentoo.org>
161 src/GLIClientController.py:
162 Add null type to network config, for cases where the interface is already up
163 and should not be touched (netboot for example).
164
165 11 Jun 2005; Robin H. Johnson <robbat2@gentoo.org>
166 src/GLIArchitectureTemplate.py:
167 pcmcia is not a variable name for a call to _add_to_runlevel, it should be a
168 string!. Try to use binary packages if available by default.
169
170 11 Jun 2005; Robin H. Johnson <robbat2@gentoo.org>
171 src/GLIArchitectureTemplate.py:
172 More error checking for _add_to_runlevel, to ensure that the init script
173 actually exists before we try to add it. set_services phase must take place
174 after the package installation, otherwise the init scripts might not exist.
175 Find the correct init script for the cron and logging daemons, and add that
176 instead of the package atom.
177
178 11 Jun 2005; Robin H. Johnson <robbat2@gentoo.org>
179 src/GLIArchitectureTemplate.py:
180 Fix up _edit_config so that it works if the file doesn't already exist. Fix
181 usage of 'file' to 'contents' for the variable name, as it shadows
182 __builtin__.file.
183
184 11 Jun 2005; Robin H. Johnson <robbat2@gentoo.org>
185 src/GLIArchitectureTemplate.py:
186 Add MTA install code, and include MTA install phase. Ensure
187 PORT_LOGDIR/PORTDIR_OVERLAY are created in _emerge if needed. Add support
188 for 'none' kernel config for build_kernel phase. Put kernel_script in
189 /var/tmp instead of /root for build_kernel phase.
190

192 Rename mta variables to match syslog/cron variables.
193
194 11 Jun 2005; Robin H. Johnson <robbat2@gentoo.org>
195 src/GLIArchitectureTemplate.py, src/templates/x86ArchitectureTemplate.py,
196 src/.cvsignore, src/fe/dialog/.cvsignore, src/fe/gtk/.cvsignore,
197 src/fe/net/client/.cvsignore, src/fe/net/server/.cvsignore,
198 src/templates/.cvsignore, src/tests/.cvsignore:
199 Refactor partition formatting again to include error checking. Allow 'none'
200 for kernel and bootloader specifications. Add .cvsignore files for .py[co].
201
202 11 Jun 2005; Robin H. Johnson <robbat2@gentoo.org>

209
210 11 Jun 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
211 Move /tmp/spawn.sh and /tmp/post-install to /var/tmp since that should always
212 be executable.
213
214 10 Jun 2005; Scott Myron <samyron@gentoo.org>
215 Fixed one of the FIXME's in the ClientConfiguration. There is now some
216 error checking when you call set_architecture_template.
217
218 10 Jun 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
219 moved the mkfsopts input to the partition options menu instead of the during
220 the creation process. updated GenDialog to say it supports reiserfs v3.
221
222 9 Jun 2005; Robin H. Johnson <robbat2@gentoo.org> src/GLIInstallProfile.py,
