6
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.
11
12 20 Jun 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
13 More updates to GenDialog and gli-d.
14
15 19 Jun 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
16 Modify list_mirrors() to return a list of mirror URL/name pairs.
17
18 19 Jun 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
19 Adding gli-dialog.py. Updates to GenDialog. Added function to GLIUtility to
20 get subarch.
21
22 16 Jun 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
23 Backend partitioning will create disklabel is none exists. Installprofile
24 defaults to "" now instead of "msdos" for disklabel type. Fix for
25 mount_local_partitions() to remember device along with minor in the
26 parts_to_mount dict (closes #96319). mount_local_partitions() cleanups and
27 add else block to log unsupported netmount types to mount_network_shares()
28
29 15 Jun 2005; Robin H. Johnson <robbat2@gentoo.org>
30 src/GLIArchitectureTemplate.py:
31 Refactor kernel_compile common stuff, fix 2.4 build process.
32 src/fe/cli/clife.py:
33 Logging system.
34 src/GLIUtility.py, src/GLIStorageDevice.py:
35 Add comments about re-writes needed for boxes without sysfs.
36
37 15 Jun 2005; Robin H. Johnson <robbat2@gentoo.org>
38 src/GLIArchitectureTemplate.py:
39 2.4 support (pull version data from /usr/src/linux/Makefile), incl.
40 'make dep' call for custom compile. build_mode support for prepare-only and
41 none types completed. custom compile function chains shell functions in
42 spawned script, to allow for catching all errors.
43
44 15 Jun 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
45 fixed up build_kernel in ArchTemplate for build_mode as well as in dialogfe
46 and GenDialog. other gendialog updates as well. kernel updates untested.
47
48 14 Jun 2005; Robin H. Johnson <robbat2@gentoo.org>
49 src/GLIInstallProfile.py:
50 Change structure of etc-portage stuff. The serialization was broken before my
51 last commit, and I am the only person that's ever used it. The new schema is
52 as follows:
53 <etc-portage>
54 <file name="package.mask"/>
55 <file name="package.unmask">
56 <entry atom="sys-kernel/openmosix-sources"/>
57 </file>
58 <file name="package.use">
59 <entry atom="sys-libs/db">
60 -java
61 </entry>
62 <entry atom="dev-libs/cyrus-sasl">
63 -ldap
64 </entry>
65 </file>
66 </etc-portage>
67
68
69 13 Jun 2005; Robin H. Johnson <robbat2@gentoo.org>
70 src/GLIInstallProfile.py:
71 Add new entry for gli-profile/kernel-build-method item. Add missing
72 serialize_etc_portage (temporary). Make serialize_make_conf always print the
73 keys in the same order.
74
75 13 Jun 2005; Robin H. Johnson <robbat2@gentoo.org>
76 src/GLIArchitectureTemplate.py:
77 Clean up commenting used by _edit_config(), and fix bug where wrong comment
78 was repeatedly appended to make.conf.
79
80 13 Jun 2005; Robin H. Johnson <robbat2@gentoo.org>
81 src/GLIArchitectureTemplate.py:
82 Put some Linux-2.6 specific code under a if statement. Store list of
83 successfully mounted swap device for using swapoff. Add proper error checking
84 to install_packages and install_filesystem_tools. Fixed namespace conflicts on
85 'file'. Clean up some redundant code (thanks to pychecker).'
86
87 13 Jun 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
88 Fix typos: get_extended() instead of get_extended_partition(). Added
89 list_mirrors() and list_stage_tarballs_from_mirror() functions to GLIUtility.
90 Change _emerge("sync") call to direct call to spawn to avoid 'emerge -k sync'
91
92 12 Jun 2005; John N. Laliberte <allanonjl@gentoo.org>
93 GLIInstallProfile.py: add missing set for dhcp_options if a tuple is passed
94 in add_network_interface.
95
96 12 Jun 2005; Robin H. Johnson <robbat2@gentoo.org> src/GLIArchitectureTemplate.py:
97 ensure PORTAGE_TMPDIR/PORT_LOGDIR/PORTDIR_OVERLAY/PKGDIR exist prior to any
98 usage - this caused a failure for stage1/stage2 previously. swapoff for swap
99 space at end of install. Mount /dev, /dev/shm, /dev/pts and /sys during
100 prepare_chroot.
101
102 11 Jun 2005; Robin H. Johnson <robbat2@gentoo.org> +src/cli/clife.py,
103 +src/cli/README, +src/fe/installer-cli, +src/fe/installer-dialog,
104 +src/fe/installer-gtk:
105 Add new automated CLI frontend. Add scripts that are the intended means to
106 use each frontend.
107
108 11 Jun 2005; Robin H. Johnson <robbat2@gentoo.org>
109 src/GLIClientController.py:
110 Add null type to network config, for cases where the interface is already up
111 and should not be touched (netboot for example).
112
113 11 Jun 2005; Robin H. Johnson <robbat2@gentoo.org>
114 src/GLIArchitectureTemplate.py:
115 pcmcia is not a variable name for a call to _add_to_runlevel, it should be a
116 string!. Try to use binary packages if available by default.
117
118 11 Jun 2005; Robin H. Johnson <robbat2@gentoo.org>
119 src/GLIArchitectureTemplate.py:
120 More error checking for _add_to_runlevel, to ensure that the init script
121 actually exists before we try to add it. set_services phase must take place
122 after the package installation, otherwise the init scripts might not exist.
123 Find the correct init script for the cron and logging daemons, and add that
124 instead of the package atom.
125
126 11 Jun 2005; Robin H. Johnson <robbat2@gentoo.org>
127 src/GLIArchitectureTemplate.py:
128 Fix up _edit_config so that it works if the file doesn't already exist. Fix
129 usage of 'file' to 'contents' for the variable name, as it shadows
130 __builtin__.file.
131
132 11 Jun 2005; Robin H. Johnson <robbat2@gentoo.org>
133 src/GLIArchitectureTemplate.py:
134 Add MTA install code, and include MTA install phase. Ensure
135 PORT_LOGDIR/PORTDIR_OVERLAY are created in _emerge if needed. Add support
136 for 'none' kernel config for build_kernel phase. Put kernel_script in
137 /var/tmp instead of /root for build_kernel phase.
138
139 11 Jun 2005; Robin H. Johnson <robbat2@gentoo.org> src/GLIInstallProfile.py:
140 Rename mta variables to match syslog/cron variables.
141
142 11 Jun 2005; Robin H. Johnson <robbat2@gentoo.org>
143 src/GLIArchitectureTemplate.py, src/templates/x86ArchitectureTemplate.py,
144 src/.cvsignore, src/fe/dialog/.cvsignore, src/fe/gtk/.cvsignore,
145 src/fe/net/client/.cvsignore, src/fe/net/server/.cvsignore,
146 src/templates/.cvsignore, src/tests/.cvsignore:
147 Refactor partition formatting again to include error checking. Allow 'none'
148 for kernel and bootloader specifications. Add .cvsignore files for .py[co].
149
150 11 Jun 2005; Robin H. Johnson <robbat2@gentoo.org>
151 src/GLIArchitectureTemplate.py, src/templates/x86ArchitectureTemplate.py:
152 Refactor _emerge to remove duplicate code. Refactor mkfs code in backend to
153 only have a single spawn call.
154
155 11 Jun 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
156 refixed samyron's fix of set_architecture_template.
157
158 11 Jun 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
159 Move /tmp/spawn.sh and /tmp/post-install to /var/tmp since that should always
160 be executable.
161
162 10 Jun 2005; Scott Myron <samyron@gentoo.org>
163 Fixed one of the FIXME's in the ClientConfiguration. There is now some
164 error checking when you call set_architecture_template.
165
166 10 Jun 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
167 moved the mkfsopts input to the partition options menu instead of the during
168 the creation process. updated GenDialog to say it supports reiserfs v3.
169
170 9 Jun 2005; Robin H. Johnson <robbat2@gentoo.org> src/GLIInstallProfile.py,

172 Complete support for 'mkfsopts' parameter in main system and dialogfe.
173 Add support for other partition types to dialogfe.
174 Fix all usages of int(possible_big_number) to long(possible_bit_number) to
175 avoid integer overflows and wraparounds.

177 9 Jun 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
178 Removed start/end from XML output and added mkfsopts to partitioning info.
179 'mkfsopts' parameter is now used and support for creating xfs, jfs, and
180 reiserfs is now in (patch from robbat2). Change '_parser' to 'self._parser'
181 in GLIClientConfiguration. Change from .1 and .9 to constants for
