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. Fix space vs. tab issue.
11 Fix undefined variable 'output' issue in spawn(). Changed setup_network_post
12 to check for 'interfaces[interface][0] != "dhcp"' instead of
13 'interfaces[interface][1]' since DHCP uses that field for its options.
14 setup_network_post() writes custom DHCP options to /etc/conf.d/net.
15
16 20 Jun 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
17 More updates to GenDialog and gli-d.
18
19 19 Jun 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
20 Modify list_mirrors() to return a list of mirror URL/name pairs.
21
22 19 Jun 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
23 Adding gli-dialog.py. Updates to GenDialog. Added function to GLIUtility to
24 get subarch.
25
26 16 Jun 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
27 Backend partitioning will create disklabel is none exists. Installprofile
28 defaults to "" now instead of "msdos" for disklabel type. Fix for
29 mount_local_partitions() to remember device along with minor in the
30 parts_to_mount dict (closes #96319). mount_local_partitions() cleanups and
31 add else block to log unsupported netmount types to mount_network_shares()
32
33 15 Jun 2005; Robin H. Johnson <robbat2@gentoo.org>
34 src/GLIArchitectureTemplate.py:
35 Refactor kernel_compile common stuff, fix 2.4 build process.
36 src/fe/cli/clife.py:
37 Logging system.
38 src/GLIUtility.py, src/GLIStorageDevice.py:
39 Add comments about re-writes needed for boxes without sysfs.
40
41 15 Jun 2005; Robin H. Johnson <robbat2@gentoo.org>
42 src/GLIArchitectureTemplate.py:
43 2.4 support (pull version data from /usr/src/linux/Makefile), incl.
44 'make dep' call for custom compile. build_mode support for prepare-only and
45 none types completed. custom compile function chains shell functions in
46 spawned script, to allow for catching all errors.
47
48 15 Jun 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
49 fixed up build_kernel in ArchTemplate for build_mode as well as in dialogfe
50 and GenDialog. other gendialog updates as well. kernel updates untested.
51
52 14 Jun 2005; Robin H. Johnson <robbat2@gentoo.org>
53 src/GLIInstallProfile.py:
54 Change structure of etc-portage stuff. The serialization was broken before my
55 last commit, and I am the only person that's ever used it. The new schema is
56 as follows:
57 <etc-portage>
58 <file name="package.mask"/>
59 <file name="package.unmask">
60 <entry atom="sys-kernel/openmosix-sources"/>
61 </file>
62 <file name="package.use">
63 <entry atom="sys-libs/db">
64 -java
65 </entry>
66 <entry atom="dev-libs/cyrus-sasl">
67 -ldap
68 </entry>
69 </file>
70 </etc-portage>
71
72
73 13 Jun 2005; Robin H. Johnson <robbat2@gentoo.org>
74 src/GLIInstallProfile.py:
75 Add new entry for gli-profile/kernel-build-method item. Add missing
76 serialize_etc_portage (temporary). Make serialize_make_conf always print the
77 keys in the same order.
78
79 13 Jun 2005; Robin H. Johnson <robbat2@gentoo.org>
80 src/GLIArchitectureTemplate.py:
81 Clean up commenting used by _edit_config(), and fix bug where wrong comment
82 was repeatedly appended to make.conf.
83
84 13 Jun 2005; Robin H. Johnson <robbat2@gentoo.org>
85 src/GLIArchitectureTemplate.py:
86 Put some Linux-2.6 specific code under a if statement. Store list of
87 successfully mounted swap device for using swapoff. Add proper error checking
88 to install_packages and install_filesystem_tools. Fixed namespace conflicts on
89 'file'. Clean up some redundant code (thanks to pychecker).'
90
91 13 Jun 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
92 Fix typos: get_extended() instead of get_extended_partition(). Added
93 list_mirrors() and list_stage_tarballs_from_mirror() functions to GLIUtility.
94 Change _emerge("sync") call to direct call to spawn to avoid 'emerge -k sync'
95
96 12 Jun 2005; John N. Laliberte <allanonjl@gentoo.org>
97 GLIInstallProfile.py: add missing set for dhcp_options if a tuple is passed
98 in add_network_interface.
99
100 12 Jun 2005; Robin H. Johnson <robbat2@gentoo.org> src/GLIArchitectureTemplate.py:
101 ensure PORTAGE_TMPDIR/PORT_LOGDIR/PORTDIR_OVERLAY/PKGDIR exist prior to any
102 usage - this caused a failure for stage1/stage2 previously. swapoff for swap
103 space at end of install. Mount /dev, /dev/shm, /dev/pts and /sys during
104 prepare_chroot.
105
106 11 Jun 2005; Robin H. Johnson <robbat2@gentoo.org> +src/cli/clife.py,
107 +src/cli/README, +src/fe/installer-cli, +src/fe/installer-dialog,
108 +src/fe/installer-gtk:
109 Add new automated CLI frontend. Add scripts that are the intended means to
110 use each frontend.
111
112 11 Jun 2005; Robin H. Johnson <robbat2@gentoo.org>
113 src/GLIClientController.py:
114 Add null type to network config, for cases where the interface is already up
115 and should not be touched (netboot for example).
116
117 11 Jun 2005; Robin H. Johnson <robbat2@gentoo.org>
118 src/GLIArchitectureTemplate.py:
119 pcmcia is not a variable name for a call to _add_to_runlevel, it should be a
120 string!. Try to use binary packages if available by default.
121
122 11 Jun 2005; Robin H. Johnson <robbat2@gentoo.org>
123 src/GLIArchitectureTemplate.py:
124 More error checking for _add_to_runlevel, to ensure that the init script
125 actually exists before we try to add it. set_services phase must take place
126 after the package installation, otherwise the init scripts might not exist.
127 Find the correct init script for the cron and logging daemons, and add that
128 instead of the package atom.
129
130 11 Jun 2005; Robin H. Johnson <robbat2@gentoo.org>
131 src/GLIArchitectureTemplate.py:
132 Fix up _edit_config so that it works if the file doesn't already exist. Fix
133 usage of 'file' to 'contents' for the variable name, as it shadows
134 __builtin__.file.
135
136 11 Jun 2005; Robin H. Johnson <robbat2@gentoo.org>
137 src/GLIArchitectureTemplate.py:
138 Add MTA install code, and include MTA install phase. Ensure
139 PORT_LOGDIR/PORTDIR_OVERLAY are created in _emerge if needed. Add support
140 for 'none' kernel config for build_kernel phase. Put kernel_script in
141 /var/tmp instead of /root for build_kernel phase.
142
143 11 Jun 2005; Robin H. Johnson <robbat2@gentoo.org> src/GLIInstallProfile.py:
144 Rename mta variables to match syslog/cron variables.
145
146 11 Jun 2005; Robin H. Johnson <robbat2@gentoo.org>
147 src/GLIArchitectureTemplate.py, src/templates/x86ArchitectureTemplate.py,
148 src/.cvsignore, src/fe/dialog/.cvsignore, src/fe/gtk/.cvsignore,
149 src/fe/net/client/.cvsignore, src/fe/net/server/.cvsignore,
150 src/templates/.cvsignore, src/tests/.cvsignore:
151 Refactor partition formatting again to include error checking. Allow 'none'
152 for kernel and bootloader specifications. Add .cvsignore files for .py[co].
153
154 11 Jun 2005; Robin H. Johnson <robbat2@gentoo.org>
155 src/GLIArchitectureTemplate.py, src/templates/x86ArchitectureTemplate.py:
156 Refactor _emerge to remove duplicate code. Refactor mkfs code in backend to
157 only have a single spawn call.
158
159 11 Jun 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
160 refixed samyron's fix of set_architecture_template.
161
162 11 Jun 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
163 Move /tmp/spawn.sh and /tmp/post-install to /var/tmp since that should always
164 be executable.
165
166 10 Jun 2005; Scott Myron <samyron@gentoo.org>
167 Fixed one of the FIXME's in the ClientConfiguration. There is now some
168 error checking when you call set_architecture_template.
169
170 10 Jun 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
171 moved the mkfsopts input to the partition options menu instead of the during
172 the creation process. updated GenDialog to say it supports reiserfs v3.
173
174 9 Jun 2005; Robin H. Johnson <robbat2@gentoo.org> src/GLIInstallProfile.py,
175 src/GLIStorageDevice.py, fe/dialog/dialogfe.py:
176 Complete support for 'mkfsopts' parameter in main system and dialogfe.
177 Add support for other partition types to dialogfe.
178 Fix all usages of int(possible_big_number) to long(possible_bit_number) to
179 avoid integer overflows and wraparounds.
180
181 9 Jun 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
182 Removed start/end from XML output and added mkfsopts to partitioning info.
183 'mkfsopts' parameter is now used and support for creating xfs, jfs, and
184 reiserfs is now in (patch from robbat2). Change '_parser' to 'self._parser'
185 in GLIClientConfiguration. Change from .1 and .9 to constants for
