101 function is called twice on the same file.
102
103 29 Jun 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
104 Missing \ in sed in _get_packages_to_emerge()

132 added dialog.py to /src temporarily until it gets accepted upstream.
133 fix for unused value in form in dialog.py and changed heights.

144 Add dhcp_options to the CC, CConfig, and GenDialog. More overall changes to
145 GenDialog as it gets closer to completion.
146
147 22 Jun 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
148 Modify get_eth_info() to take a full interface name (eth0 fex). float()
149 instead of int() in add_partition_device_partition() for minor (closes 96804)
150
151 21 Jun 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
152 Changed setup_network_post to check for 'interfaces[interface][0] != "dhcp"'
153 instead of 'interfaces[interface][1]' since DHCP uses that field for its
154 options. setup_network_post() writes custom DHCP options to /etc/conf.d/net.
155
156 20 Jun 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
157 Apply spawn() patch from #96644 (with minor changes). Make sure the return

170 get subarch.
171
172 16 Jun 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
173 Backend partitioning will create disklabel is none exists. Installprofile
174 defaults to "" now instead of "msdos" for disklabel type. Fix for
175 mount_local_partitions() to remember device along with minor in the
176 parts_to_mount dict (closes #96319). mount_local_partitions() cleanups and
177 add else block to log unsupported netmount types to mount_network_shares()
178
179 15 Jun 2005; Robin H. Johnson <robbat2@gentoo.org>

189 2.4 support (pull version data from /usr/src/linux/Makefile), incl.
190 'make dep' call for custom compile. build_mode support for prepare-only and
191 none types completed. custom compile function chains shell functions in
192 spawned script, to allow for catching all errors.
193
194 15 Jun 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
195 fixed up build_kernel in ArchTemplate for build_mode as well as in dialogfe
196 and GenDialog. other gendialog updates as well. kernel updates untested.
197
198 14 Jun 2005; Robin H. Johnson <robbat2@gentoo.org>
199 src/GLIInstallProfile.py:
200 Change structure of etc-portage stuff. The serialization was broken before my
201 last commit, and I am the only person that's ever used it. The new schema is
202 as follows:
203 <etc-portage>
204 <file name="package.mask"/>
205 <file name="package.unmask">
206 <entry atom="sys-kernel/openmosix-sources"/>
207 </file>
208 <file name="package.use">
209 <entry atom="sys-libs/db">
210 -java
211 </entry>
212 <entry atom="dev-libs/cyrus-sasl">
213 -ldap
214 </entry>
215 </file>
216 </etc-portage>
217
218
219 13 Jun 2005; Robin H. Johnson <robbat2@gentoo.org>
220 src/GLIInstallProfile.py:
221 Add new entry for gli-profile/kernel-build-method item. Add missing
222 serialize_etc_portage (temporary). Make serialize_make_conf always print the
223 keys in the same order.
224
225 13 Jun 2005; Robin H. Johnson <robbat2@gentoo.org>
226 src/GLIArchitectureTemplate.py:
227 Clean up commenting used by _edit_config(), and fix bug where wrong comment
228 was repeatedly appended to make.conf.
229
230 13 Jun 2005; Robin H. Johnson <robbat2@gentoo.org>
231 src/GLIArchitectureTemplate.py:
232 Put some Linux-2.6 specific code under a if statement. Store list of
233 successfully mounted swap device for using swapoff. Add proper error checking
234 to install_packages and install_filesystem_tools. Fixed namespace conflicts on
235 'file'. Clean up some redundant code (thanks to pychecker).'
236
237 13 Jun 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
238 Fix typos: get_extended() instead of get_extended_partition(). Added
239 list_mirrors() and list_stage_tarballs_from_mirror() functions to GLIUtility.
240 Change _emerge("sync") call to direct call to spawn to avoid 'emerge -k sync'
241
242 12 Jun 2005; John N. Laliberte <allanonjl@gentoo.org>
243 GLIInstallProfile.py: add missing set for dhcp_options if a tuple is passed
244 in add_network_interface.
245
246 12 Jun 2005; Robin H. Johnson <robbat2@gentoo.org> src/GLIArchitectureTemplate.py:
247 ensure PORTAGE_TMPDIR/PORT_LOGDIR/PORTDIR_OVERLAY/PKGDIR exist prior to any
248 usage - this caused a failure for stage1/stage2 previously. swapoff for swap
249 space at end of install. Mount /dev, /dev/shm, /dev/pts and /sys during
250 prepare_chroot.
251
252 11 Jun 2005; Robin H. Johnson <robbat2@gentoo.org> +src/cli/clife.py,
253 +src/cli/README, +src/fe/installer-cli, +src/fe/installer-dialog,

261 and should not be touched (netboot for example).
262
263 11 Jun 2005; Robin H. Johnson <robbat2@gentoo.org>
264 src/GLIArchitectureTemplate.py:
265 pcmcia is not a variable name for a call to _add_to_runlevel, it should be a
266 string!. Try to use binary packages if available by default.
267
268 11 Jun 2005; Robin H. Johnson <robbat2@gentoo.org>
269 src/GLIArchitectureTemplate.py:
270 More error checking for _add_to_runlevel, to ensure that the init script
271 actually exists before we try to add it. set_services phase must take place
272 after the package installation, otherwise the init scripts might not exist.
273 Find the correct init script for the cron and logging daemons, and add that
274 instead of the package atom.
275
276 11 Jun 2005; Robin H. Johnson <robbat2@gentoo.org>
277 src/GLIArchitectureTemplate.py:
278 Fix up _edit_config so that it works if the file doesn't already exist. Fix
279 usage of 'file' to 'contents' for the variable name, as it shadows
280 __builtin__.file.
281
282 11 Jun 2005; Robin H. Johnson <robbat2@gentoo.org>
283 src/GLIArchitectureTemplate.py:
284 Add MTA install code, and include MTA install phase. Ensure
285 PORT_LOGDIR/PORTDIR_OVERLAY are created in _emerge if needed. Add support
286 for 'none' kernel config for build_kernel phase. Put kernel_script in
287 /var/tmp instead of /root for build_kernel phase.
288
289 11 Jun 2005; Robin H. Johnson <robbat2@gentoo.org> src/GLIInstallProfile.py:
290 Rename mta variables to match syslog/cron variables.
291
292 11 Jun 2005; Robin H. Johnson <robbat2@gentoo.org>
293 src/GLIArchitectureTemplate.py, src/templates/x86ArchitectureTemplate.py,
294 src/.cvsignore, src/fe/dialog/.cvsignore, src/fe/gtk/.cvsignore,
295 src/fe/net/client/.cvsignore, src/fe/net/server/.cvsignore,
296 src/templates/.cvsignore, src/tests/.cvsignore:
297 Refactor partition formatting again to include error checking. Allow 'none'
298 for kernel and bootloader specifications. Add .cvsignore files for .py[co].
299
300 11 Jun 2005; Robin H. Johnson <robbat2@gentoo.org>
301 src/GLIArchitectureTemplate.py, src/templates/x86ArchitectureTemplate.py:

303 only have a single spawn call.
304
305 11 Jun 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
306 refixed samyron's fix of set_architecture_template.
307
308 11 Jun 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
309 Move /tmp/spawn.sh and /tmp/post-install to /var/tmp since that should always
310 be executable.
311
312 10 Jun 2005; Scott Myron <samyron@gentoo.org>
313 Fixed one of the FIXME's in the ClientConfiguration. There is now some
314 error checking when you call set_architecture_template.
315
316 10 Jun 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
317 moved the mkfsopts input to the partition options menu instead of the during
318 the creation process. updated GenDialog to say it supports reiserfs v3.
319
320 9 Jun 2005; Robin H. Johnson <robbat2@gentoo.org> src/GLIInstallProfile.py,

328 Removed start/end from XML output and added mkfsopts to partitioning info.
329 'mkfsopts' parameter is now used and support for creating xfs, jfs, and
330 reiserfs is now in (patch from robbat2). Change '_parser' to 'self._parser'
331 in GLIClientConfiguration. Change from .1 and .9 to constants for
332 partitioning. Fix free space overwriting bug. Remove a few unused functions
