7 20 Jun 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
8 Apply spawn() patch from #96644 (with minor changes). Make sure the return
9 value from all spawn() calls is checked with GLIUtility.exitsuccess(). Fix
10 small error with <pipe>.close() returning None. Fix space vs. tab issue.
11 Fix undefined variable 'output' issue in spawn().
12
13 20 Jun 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
14 More updates to GenDialog and gli-d.
15
16 19 Jun 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
17 Modify list_mirrors() to return a list of mirror URL/name pairs.
18
19 19 Jun 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
20 Adding gli-dialog.py. Updates to GenDialog. Added function to GLIUtility to
21 get subarch.
22
23 16 Jun 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
24 Backend partitioning will create disklabel is none exists. Installprofile
25 defaults to "" now instead of "msdos" for disklabel type. Fix for
26 mount_local_partitions() to remember device along with minor in the
27 parts_to_mount dict (closes #96319). mount_local_partitions() cleanups and
28 add else block to log unsupported netmount types to mount_network_shares()
29
30 15 Jun 2005; Robin H. Johnson <robbat2@gentoo.org>
31 src/GLIArchitectureTemplate.py:
32 Refactor kernel_compile common stuff, fix 2.4 build process.
33 src/fe/cli/clife.py:
34 Logging system.
35 src/GLIUtility.py, src/GLIStorageDevice.py:
36 Add comments about re-writes needed for boxes without sysfs.
37
38 15 Jun 2005; Robin H. Johnson <robbat2@gentoo.org>
39 src/GLIArchitectureTemplate.py:
40 2.4 support (pull version data from /usr/src/linux/Makefile), incl.
41 'make dep' call for custom compile. build_mode support for prepare-only and
42 none types completed. custom compile function chains shell functions in
43 spawned script, to allow for catching all errors.
44
45 15 Jun 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
46 fixed up build_kernel in ArchTemplate for build_mode as well as in dialogfe
47 and GenDialog. other gendialog updates as well. kernel updates untested.
48
49 14 Jun 2005; Robin H. Johnson <robbat2@gentoo.org>
50 src/GLIInstallProfile.py:
51 Change structure of etc-portage stuff. The serialization was broken before my
52 last commit, and I am the only person that's ever used it. The new schema is
53 as follows:
54 <etc-portage>
55 <file name="package.mask"/>
56 <file name="package.unmask">
57 <entry atom="sys-kernel/openmosix-sources"/>
58 </file>
59 <file name="package.use">
60 <entry atom="sys-libs/db">
61 -java
62 </entry>
63 <entry atom="dev-libs/cyrus-sasl">
64 -ldap
65 </entry>
66 </file>
67 </etc-portage>
68
69
70 13 Jun 2005; Robin H. Johnson <robbat2@gentoo.org>
71 src/GLIInstallProfile.py:
72 Add new entry for gli-profile/kernel-build-method item. Add missing
73 serialize_etc_portage (temporary). Make serialize_make_conf always print the
74 keys in the same order.
75
76 13 Jun 2005; Robin H. Johnson <robbat2@gentoo.org>
77 src/GLIArchitectureTemplate.py:
78 Clean up commenting used by _edit_config(), and fix bug where wrong comment
79 was repeatedly appended to make.conf.
80
81 13 Jun 2005; Robin H. Johnson <robbat2@gentoo.org>
82 src/GLIArchitectureTemplate.py:
83 Put some Linux-2.6 specific code under a if statement. Store list of
84 successfully mounted swap device for using swapoff. Add proper error checking
85 to install_packages and install_filesystem_tools. Fixed namespace conflicts on
86 'file'. Clean up some redundant code (thanks to pychecker).'
87
88 13 Jun 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
89 Fix typos: get_extended() instead of get_extended_partition(). Added
90 list_mirrors() and list_stage_tarballs_from_mirror() functions to GLIUtility.
91 Change _emerge("sync") call to direct call to spawn to avoid 'emerge -k sync'
92
93 12 Jun 2005; John N. Laliberte <allanonjl@gentoo.org>
94 GLIInstallProfile.py: add missing set for dhcp_options if a tuple is passed
95 in add_network_interface.
96
97 12 Jun 2005; Robin H. Johnson <robbat2@gentoo.org> src/GLIArchitectureTemplate.py:
98 ensure PORTAGE_TMPDIR/PORT_LOGDIR/PORTDIR_OVERLAY/PKGDIR exist prior to any
99 usage - this caused a failure for stage1/stage2 previously. swapoff for swap
100 space at end of install. Mount /dev, /dev/shm, /dev/pts and /sys during
101 prepare_chroot.
102
103 11 Jun 2005; Robin H. Johnson <robbat2@gentoo.org> +src/cli/clife.py,
104 +src/cli/README, +src/fe/installer-cli, +src/fe/installer-dialog,
105 +src/fe/installer-gtk:
106 Add new automated CLI frontend. Add scripts that are the intended means to
107 use each frontend.
108
109 11 Jun 2005; Robin H. Johnson <robbat2@gentoo.org>
110 src/GLIClientController.py:
111 Add null type to network config, for cases where the interface is already up
112 and should not be touched (netboot for example).
113
114 11 Jun 2005; Robin H. Johnson <robbat2@gentoo.org>
115 src/GLIArchitectureTemplate.py:
116 pcmcia is not a variable name for a call to _add_to_runlevel, it should be a
117 string!. Try to use binary packages if available by default.
118
119 11 Jun 2005; Robin H. Johnson <robbat2@gentoo.org>
120 src/GLIArchitectureTemplate.py:
121 More error checking for _add_to_runlevel, to ensure that the init script
122 actually exists before we try to add it. set_services phase must take place
123 after the package installation, otherwise the init scripts might not exist.
124 Find the correct init script for the cron and logging daemons, and add that
125 instead of the package atom.
126
127 11 Jun 2005; Robin H. Johnson <robbat2@gentoo.org>
128 src/GLIArchitectureTemplate.py:
129 Fix up _edit_config so that it works if the file doesn't already exist. Fix
130 usage of 'file' to 'contents' for the variable name, as it shadows
131 __builtin__.file.
132
133 11 Jun 2005; Robin H. Johnson <robbat2@gentoo.org>
134 src/GLIArchitectureTemplate.py:
135 Add MTA install code, and include MTA install phase. Ensure

137 for 'none' kernel config for build_kernel phase. Put kernel_script in
138 /var/tmp instead of /root for build_kernel phase.
139

141 Rename mta variables to match syslog/cron variables.
142

144 src/GLIArchitectureTemplate.py, src/templates/x86ArchitectureTemplate.py,
145 src/.cvsignore, src/fe/dialog/.cvsignore, src/fe/gtk/.cvsignore,

147 src/templates/.cvsignore, src/tests/.cvsignore:
148 Refactor partition formatting again to include error checking. Allow 'none'
149 for kernel and bootloader specifications. Add .cvsignore files for .py[co].
150
151 11 Jun 2005; Robin H. Johnson <robbat2@gentoo.org>

158
159 11 Jun 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>

161 be executable.
162
163 10 Jun 2005; Scott Myron <samyron@gentoo.org>
164 Fixed one of the FIXME's in the ClientConfiguration. There is now some
165 error checking when you call set_architecture_template.
166
167 10 Jun 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
168 moved the mkfsopts input to the partition options menu instead of the during
169 the creation process. updated GenDialog to say it supports reiserfs v3.
170
