7 20 Jun 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
8 More updates to GenDialog and gli-d.
9
10 19 Jun 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
11 Modify list_mirrors() to return a list of mirror URL/name pairs.
12
13 19 Jun 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
14 Adding gli-dialog.py. Updates to GenDialog. Added function to GLIUtility to
15 get subarch.
16
17 16 Jun 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
18 Backend partitioning will create disklabel is none exists. Installprofile
19 defaults to "" now instead of "msdos" for disklabel type. Fix for
20 mount_local_partitions() to remember device along with minor in the
21 parts_to_mount dict (closes #96319). mount_local_partitions() cleanups and
22 add else block to log unsupported netmount types to mount_network_shares()
23
24 15 Jun 2005; Robin H. Johnson <robbat2@gentoo.org>
25 src/GLIArchitectureTemplate.py:
26 Refactor kernel_compile common stuff, fix 2.4 build process.
27 src/fe/cli/clife.py:
28 Logging system.
29 src/GLIUtility.py, src/GLIStorageDevice.py:
30 Add comments about re-writes needed for boxes without sysfs.
31
32 15 Jun 2005; Robin H. Johnson <robbat2@gentoo.org>
33 src/GLIArchitectureTemplate.py:
34 2.4 support (pull version data from /usr/src/linux/Makefile), incl.
35 'make dep' call for custom compile. build_mode support for prepare-only and
36 none types completed. custom compile function chains shell functions in
37 spawned script, to allow for catching all errors.
38
39 15 Jun 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
40 fixed up build_kernel in ArchTemplate for build_mode as well as in dialogfe
41 and GenDialog. other gendialog updates as well. kernel updates untested.
42
43 14 Jun 2005; Robin H. Johnson <robbat2@gentoo.org>
44 src/GLIInstallProfile.py:
45 Change structure of etc-portage stuff. The serialization was broken before my
46 last commit, and I am the only person that's ever used it. The new schema is
47 as follows:
48 <etc-portage>
49 <file name="package.mask"/>
50 <file name="package.unmask">
51 <entry atom="sys-kernel/openmosix-sources"/>
52 </file>
53 <file name="package.use">
54 <entry atom="sys-libs/db">
55 -java
56 </entry>
57 <entry atom="dev-libs/cyrus-sasl">
58 -ldap
59 </entry>
60 </file>
61 </etc-portage>
62
63
64 13 Jun 2005; Robin H. Johnson <robbat2@gentoo.org>
65 src/GLIInstallProfile.py:
66 Add new entry for gli-profile/kernel-build-method item. Add missing
67 serialize_etc_portage (temporary). Make serialize_make_conf always print the
68 keys in the same order.
69
70 13 Jun 2005; Robin H. Johnson <robbat2@gentoo.org>
71 src/GLIArchitectureTemplate.py:
72 Clean up commenting used by _edit_config(), and fix bug where wrong comment
73 was repeatedly appended to make.conf.
74
75 13 Jun 2005; Robin H. Johnson <robbat2@gentoo.org>
76 src/GLIArchitectureTemplate.py:
77 Put some Linux-2.6 specific code under a if statement. Store list of
78 successfully mounted swap device for using swapoff. Add proper error checking
79 to install_packages and install_filesystem_tools. Fixed namespace conflicts on
80 'file'. Clean up some redundant code (thanks to pychecker).'
81
82 13 Jun 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
83 Fix typos: get_extended() instead of get_extended_partition(). Added
84 list_mirrors() and list_stage_tarballs_from_mirror() functions to GLIUtility.
85 Change _emerge("sync") call to direct call to spawn to avoid 'emerge -k sync'
86
87 12 Jun 2005; John N. Laliberte <allanonjl@gentoo.org>
88 GLIInstallProfile.py: add missing set for dhcp_options if a tuple is passed
89 in add_network_interface.
90
91 12 Jun 2005; Robin H. Johnson <robbat2@gentoo.org> src/GLIArchitectureTemplate.py:
92 ensure PORTAGE_TMPDIR/PORT_LOGDIR/PORTDIR_OVERLAY/PKGDIR exist prior to any
93 usage - this caused a failure for stage1/stage2 previously. swapoff for swap
94 space at end of install. Mount /dev, /dev/shm, /dev/pts and /sys during
95 prepare_chroot.
96
97 11 Jun 2005; Robin H. Johnson <robbat2@gentoo.org> +src/cli/clife.py,
98 +src/cli/README, +src/fe/installer-cli, +src/fe/installer-dialog,
99 +src/fe/installer-gtk:
100 Add new automated CLI frontend. Add scripts that are the intended means to
101 use each frontend.
102
103 11 Jun 2005; Robin H. Johnson <robbat2@gentoo.org>
104 src/GLIClientController.py:
105 Add null type to network config, for cases where the interface is already up
106 and should not be touched (netboot for example).
107
108 11 Jun 2005; Robin H. Johnson <robbat2@gentoo.org>
109 src/GLIArchitectureTemplate.py:
110 pcmcia is not a variable name for a call to _add_to_runlevel, it should be a
111 string!. Try to use binary packages if available by default.
112
113 11 Jun 2005; Robin H. Johnson <robbat2@gentoo.org>
114 src/GLIArchitectureTemplate.py:
115 More error checking for _add_to_runlevel, to ensure that the init script
116 actually exists before we try to add it. set_services phase must take place
117 after the package installation, otherwise the init scripts might not exist.
118 Find the correct init script for the cron and logging daemons, and add that
119 instead of the package atom.
120
121 11 Jun 2005; Robin H. Johnson <robbat2@gentoo.org>
122 src/GLIArchitectureTemplate.py:
123 Fix up _edit_config so that it works if the file doesn't already exist. Fix
124 usage of 'file' to 'contents' for the variable name, as it shadows
125 __builtin__.file.
126
127 11 Jun 2005; Robin H. Johnson <robbat2@gentoo.org>
128 src/GLIArchitectureTemplate.py:
129 Add MTA install code, and include MTA install phase. Ensure
130 PORT_LOGDIR/PORTDIR_OVERLAY are created in _emerge if needed. Add support
131 for 'none' kernel config for build_kernel phase. Put kernel_script in
132 /var/tmp instead of /root for build_kernel phase.
133
134 11 Jun 2005; Robin H. Johnson <robbat2@gentoo.org> src/GLIInstallProfile.py:
135 Rename mta variables to match syslog/cron variables.
136
137 11 Jun 2005; Robin H. Johnson <robbat2@gentoo.org>
138 src/GLIArchitectureTemplate.py, src/templates/x86ArchitectureTemplate.py,
139 src/.cvsignore, src/fe/dialog/.cvsignore, src/fe/gtk/.cvsignore,
140 src/fe/net/client/.cvsignore, src/fe/net/server/.cvsignore,
141 src/templates/.cvsignore, src/tests/.cvsignore:
142 Refactor partition formatting again to include error checking. Allow 'none'
143 for kernel and bootloader specifications. Add .cvsignore files for .py[co].
144
145 11 Jun 2005; Robin H. Johnson <robbat2@gentoo.org>
146 src/GLIArchitectureTemplate.py, src/templates/x86ArchitectureTemplate.py:
147 Refactor _emerge to remove duplicate code. Refactor mkfs code in backend to
148 only have a single spawn call.
149
150 11 Jun 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
151 refixed samyron's fix of set_architecture_template.
152
153 11 Jun 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
154 Move /tmp/spawn.sh and /tmp/post-install to /var/tmp since that should always
155 be executable.
156
157 10 Jun 2005; Scott Myron <samyron@gentoo.org>
158 Fixed one of the FIXME's in the ClientConfiguration. There is now some
159 error checking when you call set_architecture_template.
160
161 10 Jun 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
162 moved the mkfsopts input to the partition options menu instead of the during
163 the creation process. updated GenDialog to say it supports reiserfs v3.
164
165 9 Jun 2005; Robin H. Johnson <robbat2@gentoo.org> src/GLIInstallProfile.py,
166 src/GLIStorageDevice.py, fe/dialog/dialogfe.py:
167 Complete support for 'mkfsopts' parameter in main system and dialogfe.
168 Add support for other partition types to dialogfe.
169 Fix all usages of int(possible_big_number) to long(possible_bit_number) to

171
172 9 Jun 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
173 Removed start/end from XML output and added mkfsopts to partitioning info.
174 'mkfsopts' parameter is now used and support for creating xfs, jfs, and
175 reiserfs is now in (patch from robbat2). Change '_parser' to 'self._parser'
176 in GLIClientConfiguration. Change from .1 and .9 to constants for
177 partitioning. Fix free space overwriting bug. Remove a few unused functions
