145 Finish overhaul of backend partitioning code. Fixed all bugs that stood in

172 29 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>

174 complete. Added code to (hopefully) keep 2nd thread running after install.
175 Patch from zahna for extra arguments to the kernel. Patch from zahna to add
176 get_eth_info() function. Remove most of content in amd64ArchTemplate and
177 make it inherit from x86Archtemplate. kernel_args -> bootloader_kernel_args
178
179 28 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
180 Added 'append_log=True' to all spawn() calls using logfile=. Append to log
181 when unpacking tarball.
182
183 28 Mar 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>

192
193 25 Mar 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
194 changed InstallProfile to remove is_uri check on kernel, stage, and portage
195 URIs. The blank uri check has been commented out.
196 ripped out error checking of set_services. this is done by _add_to_runlevel.
197
198 25 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
199 set_stage_tarball_uri() doesn't raise an exception on a blank string.
200

203 the install profile if available. Commented out spawn() debugging prints
204
205 23 Mar 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
206 small changes to setup_network_post. moved adding to runlevel of net.x to
207 after the device gets symlinked. added domainname runlevel command.
208
209 23 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
210 minor fix (hopefully) to livecd-kernel code. Removed call to mkvardb in
211 livecd-kernel code as it's now done by catalyst. Switch _emerge() call to
212 spawn() call in livecd-kernel code to pass environment variables.
213 livecd-kernel code pulls PKGDIR and PORTAGE_TMPDIR from make.conf info in
214 the install profile if available.
215
216 23 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
217 Added code to build_kernel() and emerge_kernel_sources() in ArchTemplate
218 to handle installing the livecd kernel into the new system.
219
220 22 Mar 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
221 should emerge hotplug and coldplug before adding them to runlevel.
222
223 21 Mar 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
224 took chroot out of grub_install command.
225
226 21 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
227 Changed chroot wrapper code in spawn() to write the wrapper the python way
228 instead of the bash way to avoid quote conflicts. Added
229 'logfile=self._compile_logfile' to a number of spawn() calls. Added new
230 hash_password() function to GLIUtility. Remove command to 'rm /tmp/spawn.sh'
231 as it breaks the piping.
232
233 20 Mar 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
234 Added the amd64ArchitectureTemplate, mostly a copy of x86 without lilo.
235
236 20 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
237 Added _get_packages_to_emerge() to GLIArchitectureTemplate and calls in
238 stage1() and stage2(). Added 'origminor' parameter to GLIStorageDevice and
239 GLIInstallProfile.
240
241 19 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
242 Fixed a couple bugs in add_netmount() in GLIInstallProfile. spawn() outputs
243 to the actual tty8 with display_on_tty8 flag. Compile output logfile moved
244 into /mnt/gentoo in prepare_chroot()
245
246 18 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
247 Add sigunmask.c contributed by d_m (on freenode) to counteract python's
248 retarted behavior regarding threads and signals. Add code to convert MB/%/*
249 to start/end sectors
250
251 17 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
252 Add 2>&1 to cmd in spawn()
253
254 16 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
255 Modified GLIUtility.exitsuccess() to work with return value from
256 commands.getstatusoutput instead of os.waitpid(). spawn() automatically
257 creates wrapper script for commands run inside chroot so multiple commands
258 and redirection can be used. Change exitsuccess() back. Added 'chmod a+x'
259 for the generated script from spawn()
260
261 16 Mar 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
262 Removed default values for stage tarball URI and portage tree URI from
263 InstallProfile. These should be set by the FEs. also added services step to
264 ArchTemplate and coldplug/hotplug runlevels to the genkernel step.
265 Possibly fixed CC DHCP bug with -n. (thx agaffney)
266
267 14 Mar 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
268 Small fix for setting the default gateway. Also added feature to dialogfe.
269
270 7 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
271 Switched spawn() over to commands.getstatusoutput() instead of fork/waitpid
272
273 1 Mar 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
274 Fixed a bunch of true -> True typos. lots of em
275 only write new resolv.conf if there are dns servers listed.
276
277 1 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
278 Commented out 'display_on_tty8=True' in start_portmap()
279
280 18 Feb 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
281 added progress bar to dialogfe and fix logger bug in ArchTemplate.
282
283 18 Feb 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>

288 updates to TODO list.
289

292 'emerge -p blah'
293
294 6 Feb 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
295 check for dhcp in the network stuff and emerge it if it is.

297
298 5 Feb 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
299 Changed the raising of 'warning' exceptions to a simple log of the error
300 so that the installer can continue.
301
302 3 Feb 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
303 Some big changes. First, changed most output to display_on_tty8.
304 Second, added log lines to all templates. Some smaller fixes such as typos.
305 Also did some cleanups of old commented lines.
306
307 1 Feb 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
308 Changed tty8 output to a fifo. Minor GLIStorageDevice fix thanks to BenUrban.
309 Undo change with fix. Escaping fix in GLIStorageDevice.py
