7 16 Jun 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
8 Backend partitioning will create disklabel is none exists. Installprofile
9 defaults to "" now instead of "msdos" for disklabel type.

11 15 Jun 2005; Robin H. Johnson <robbat2@gentoo.org>
12 src/GLIArchitectureTemplate.py:
13 Refactor kernel_compile common stuff, fix 2.4 build process.
14 src/fe/cli/clife.py:
15 Logging system.
16 src/GLIUtility.py, src/GLIStorageDevice.py:
17 Add comments about re-writes needed for boxes without sysfs.
18
19 15 Jun 2005; Robin H. Johnson <robbat2@gentoo.org>
20 src/GLIArchitectureTemplate.py:
21 2.4 support (pull version data from /usr/src/linux/Makefile), incl.
22 'make dep' call for custom compile. build_mode support for prepare-only and
23 none types completed. custom compile function chains shell functions in
24 spawned script, to allow for catching all errors.
25
26 15 Jun 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
27 fixed up build_kernel in ArchTemplate for build_mode as well as in dialogfe
28 and GenDialog. other gendialog updates as well. kernel updates untested.
29
30 14 Jun 2005; Robin H. Johnson <robbat2@gentoo.org>
31 src/GLIInstallProfile.py:
32 Change structure of etc-portage stuff. The serialization was broken before my
33 last commit, and I am the only person that's ever used it. The new schema is
34 as follows:
35 <etc-portage>
36 <file name="package.mask"/>
37 <file name="package.unmask">
38 <entry atom="sys-kernel/openmosix-sources"/>
39 </file>
40 <file name="package.use">
41 <entry atom="sys-libs/db">
42 -java
43 </entry>
44 <entry atom="dev-libs/cyrus-sasl">
45 -ldap
46 </entry>
47 </file>
48 </etc-portage>
49
50
51 13 Jun 2005; Robin H. Johnson <robbat2@gentoo.org>
52 src/GLIInstallProfile.py:
53 Add new entry for gli-profile/kernel-build-method item. Add missing
54 serialize_etc_portage (temporary). Make serialize_make_conf always print the
55 keys in the same order.
56
57 13 Jun 2005; Robin H. Johnson <robbat2@gentoo.org>
58 src/GLIArchitectureTemplate.py:
59 Clean up commenting used by _edit_config(), and fix bug where wrong comment
60 was repeatedly appended to make.conf.
61
62 13 Jun 2005; Robin H. Johnson <robbat2@gentoo.org>
63 src/GLIArchitectureTemplate.py:
64 Put some Linux-2.6 specific code under a if statement. Store list of
65 successfully mounted swap device for using swapoff. Add proper error checking
66 to install_packages and install_filesystem_tools. Fixed namespace conflicts on
67 'file'. Clean up some redundant code (thanks to pychecker).'
68
69 13 Jun 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
70 Fix typos: get_extended() instead of get_extended_partition(). Added
71 list_mirrors() and list_stage_tarballs_from_mirror() functions to GLIUtility.
72 Change _emerge("sync") call to direct call to spawn to avoid 'emerge -k sync'
73
74 12 Jun 2005; John N. Laliberte <allanonjl@gentoo.org>
75 GLIInstallProfile.py: add missing set for dhcp_options if a tuple is passed
76 in add_network_interface.
77
78 12 Jun 2005; Robin H. Johnson <robbat2@gentoo.org> src/GLIArchitectureTemplate.py:
79 ensure PORTAGE_TMPDIR/PORT_LOGDIR/PORTDIR_OVERLAY/PKGDIR exist prior to any
80 usage - this caused a failure for stage1/stage2 previously. swapoff for swap
81 space at end of install. Mount /dev, /dev/shm, /dev/pts and /sys during
82 prepare_chroot.
83
84 11 Jun 2005; Robin H. Johnson <robbat2@gentoo.org> +src/cli/clife.py,
85 +src/cli/README, +src/fe/installer-cli, +src/fe/installer-dialog,
86 +src/fe/installer-gtk:
87 Add new automated CLI frontend. Add scripts that are the intended means to
88 use each frontend.
89
90 11 Jun 2005; Robin H. Johnson <robbat2@gentoo.org>
91 src/GLIClientController.py:
92 Add null type to network config, for cases where the interface is already up
93 and should not be touched (netboot for example).
94
95 11 Jun 2005; Robin H. Johnson <robbat2@gentoo.org>
96 src/GLIArchitectureTemplate.py:
97 pcmcia is not a variable name for a call to _add_to_runlevel, it should be a
98 string!. Try to use binary packages if available by default.
99
100 11 Jun 2005; Robin H. Johnson <robbat2@gentoo.org>
101 src/GLIArchitectureTemplate.py:
102 More error checking for _add_to_runlevel, to ensure that the init script
103 actually exists before we try to add it. set_services phase must take place
104 after the package installation, otherwise the init scripts might not exist.
105 Find the correct init script for the cron and logging daemons, and add that
106 instead of the package atom.
107
108 11 Jun 2005; Robin H. Johnson <robbat2@gentoo.org>
109 src/GLIArchitectureTemplate.py:
110 Fix up _edit_config so that it works if the file doesn't already exist. Fix
111 usage of 'file' to 'contents' for the variable name, as it shadows
112 __builtin__.file.
113
114 11 Jun 2005; Robin H. Johnson <robbat2@gentoo.org>
115 src/GLIArchitectureTemplate.py:
116 Add MTA install code, and include MTA install phase. Ensure
117 PORT_LOGDIR/PORTDIR_OVERLAY are created in _emerge if needed. Add support
118 for 'none' kernel config for build_kernel phase. Put kernel_script in
119 /var/tmp instead of /root for build_kernel phase.
120
121 11 Jun 2005; Robin H. Johnson <robbat2@gentoo.org> src/GLIInstallProfile.py:
122 Rename mta variables to match syslog/cron variables.
123
124 11 Jun 2005; Robin H. Johnson <robbat2@gentoo.org>
125 src/GLIArchitectureTemplate.py, src/templates/x86ArchitectureTemplate.py,
126 src/.cvsignore, src/fe/dialog/.cvsignore, src/fe/gtk/.cvsignore,
127 src/fe/net/client/.cvsignore, src/fe/net/server/.cvsignore,
128 src/templates/.cvsignore, src/tests/.cvsignore:
129 Refactor partition formatting again to include error checking. Allow 'none'
130 for kernel and bootloader specifications. Add .cvsignore files for .py[co].
131
132 11 Jun 2005; Robin H. Johnson <robbat2@gentoo.org>
133 src/GLIArchitectureTemplate.py, src/templates/x86ArchitectureTemplate.py:
134 Refactor _emerge to remove duplicate code. Refactor mkfs code in backend to
135 only have a single spawn call.
136

139
140 11 Jun 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>

142 be executable.
143
144 10 Jun 2005; Scott Myron <samyron@gentoo.org>
145 Fixed one of the FIXME's in the ClientConfiguration. There is now some
146 error checking when you call set_architecture_template.
147
148 10 Jun 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
149 moved the mkfsopts input to the partition options menu instead of the during
150 the creation process. updated GenDialog to say it supports reiserfs v3.
151
152 9 Jun 2005; Robin H. Johnson <robbat2@gentoo.org> src/GLIInstallProfile.py,

154 Complete support for 'mkfsopts' parameter in main system and dialogfe.
155 Add support for other partition types to dialogfe.
156 Fix all usages of int(possible_big_number) to long(possible_bit_number) to
157 avoid integer overflows and wraparounds.
158
159 9 Jun 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
160 Removed start/end from XML output and added mkfsopts to partitioning info.
161 'mkfsopts' parameter is now used and support for creating xfs, jfs, and
162 reiserfs is now in (patch from robbat2). Change '_parser' to 'self._parser'
163 in GLIClientConfiguration. Change from .1 and .9 to constants for
