5*GLI-0.1_alpha (4 Apr 2005) 5*GLI-0.1_alpha (4 Apr 2005)
6
7 28 Jun 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
8 finished almost all internationalization of GenDialog.
9
10 27 Jun 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
11 Roll rc_conf and make_conf into master etc_files structure in InstallProfile.
12
13 27 Jun 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
14 fix extra entry in list_mirrors()
15 beginning internationalization runthrough.
16
17 26 Jun 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
18 added dialog.py to /src temporarily until it gets accepted upstream.
19 fix for unused value in form in dialog.py and changed heights.
20 fix GenDialog forms.
21
22 25 Jun 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
23 Changed hostname/domainname for new baselayout.
24 Changed _add_to_runlevel errors to logs.
25 Updated TODO list to show status of GenDialog
26 More updates to GenDialog including two checklists that probably won't work.
27 update IP to use comma-separated list instead of space separated for services.
28
29 24 Jun 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
30 Add dhcp_options to the CC, CConfig, and GenDialog. More overall changes to
31 GenDialog as it gets closer to completion.
32
33 22 Jun 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
34 Modify get_eth_info() to take a full interface name (eth0 fex). float()
35 instead of int() in add_partition_device_partition() for minor (closes 96804)
36
37 21 Jun 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
38 Changed setup_network_post to check for 'interfaces[interface][0] != "dhcp"'
39 instead of 'interfaces[interface][1]' since DHCP uses that field for its
40 options. setup_network_post() writes custom DHCP options to /etc/conf.d/net.
41
42 20 Jun 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
43 Apply spawn() patch from #96644 (with minor changes). Make sure the return
44 value from all spawn() calls is checked with GLIUtility.exitsuccess(). Fix
45 small error with <pipe>.close() returning None. Fix space vs. tab issue.
46 Fix undefined variable 'output' issue in spawn().
47
48 20 Jun 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
49 More updates to GenDialog and gli-d.
50
51 19 Jun 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
52 Modify list_mirrors() to return a list of mirror URL/name pairs.
53
54 19 Jun 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
55 Adding gli-dialog.py. Updates to GenDialog. Added function to GLIUtility to
56 get subarch.
57
58 16 Jun 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
59 Backend partitioning will create disklabel is none exists. Installprofile
60 defaults to "" now instead of "msdos" for disklabel type. Fix for
61 mount_local_partitions() to remember device along with minor in the
62 parts_to_mount dict (closes #96319). mount_local_partitions() cleanups and
63 add else block to log unsupported netmount types to mount_network_shares()
64
65 15 Jun 2005; Robin H. Johnson <robbat2@gentoo.org>
66 src/GLIArchitectureTemplate.py:
67 Refactor kernel_compile common stuff, fix 2.4 build process.
68 src/fe/cli/clife.py:
69 Logging system.
70 src/GLIUtility.py, src/GLIStorageDevice.py:
71 Add comments about re-writes needed for boxes without sysfs.
72
73 15 Jun 2005; Robin H. Johnson <robbat2@gentoo.org>
74 src/GLIArchitectureTemplate.py:
75 2.4 support (pull version data from /usr/src/linux/Makefile), incl.
76 'make dep' call for custom compile. build_mode support for prepare-only and
77 none types completed. custom compile function chains shell functions in
78 spawned script, to allow for catching all errors.
79
80 15 Jun 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
81 fixed up build_kernel in ArchTemplate for build_mode as well as in dialogfe
82 and GenDialog. other gendialog updates as well. kernel updates untested.
83
84 14 Jun 2005; Robin H. Johnson <robbat2@gentoo.org>
85 src/GLIInstallProfile.py:
86 Change structure of etc-portage stuff. The serialization was broken before my
87 last commit, and I am the only person that's ever used it. The new schema is
88 as follows:
89 <etc-portage>
90 <file name="package.mask"/>
91 <file name="package.unmask">
92 <entry atom="sys-kernel/openmosix-sources"/>
93 </file>
94 <file name="package.use">
95 <entry atom="sys-libs/db">
96 -java
97 </entry>
98 <entry atom="dev-libs/cyrus-sasl">
99 -ldap
100 </entry>
101 </file>
102 </etc-portage>
103
104
105 13 Jun 2005; Robin H. Johnson <robbat2@gentoo.org>
106 src/GLIInstallProfile.py:
107 Add new entry for gli-profile/kernel-build-method item. Add missing
108 serialize_etc_portage (temporary). Make serialize_make_conf always print the
109 keys in the same order.
110
111 13 Jun 2005; Robin H. Johnson <robbat2@gentoo.org>
112 src/GLIArchitectureTemplate.py:
113 Clean up commenting used by _edit_config(), and fix bug where wrong comment
114 was repeatedly appended to make.conf.
115
116 13 Jun 2005; Robin H. Johnson <robbat2@gentoo.org>
117 src/GLIArchitectureTemplate.py:
118 Put some Linux-2.6 specific code under a if statement. Store list of
119 successfully mounted swap device for using swapoff. Add proper error checking
120 to install_packages and install_filesystem_tools. Fixed namespace conflicts on
121 'file'. Clean up some redundant code (thanks to pychecker).'
122
123 13 Jun 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
124 Fix typos: get_extended() instead of get_extended_partition(). Added
125 list_mirrors() and list_stage_tarballs_from_mirror() functions to GLIUtility.
126 Change _emerge("sync") call to direct call to spawn to avoid 'emerge -k sync'
127
128 12 Jun 2005; John N. Laliberte <allanonjl@gentoo.org>
129 GLIInstallProfile.py: add missing set for dhcp_options if a tuple is passed
130 in add_network_interface.
131
132 12 Jun 2005; Robin H. Johnson <robbat2@gentoo.org> src/GLIArchitectureTemplate.py:
133 ensure PORTAGE_TMPDIR/PORT_LOGDIR/PORTDIR_OVERLAY/PKGDIR exist prior to any
134 usage - this caused a failure for stage1/stage2 previously. swapoff for swap
135 space at end of install. Mount /dev, /dev/shm, /dev/pts and /sys during
136 prepare_chroot.
137
138 11 Jun 2005; Robin H. Johnson <robbat2@gentoo.org> +src/cli/clife.py,
139 +src/cli/README, +src/fe/installer-cli, +src/fe/installer-dialog,
140 +src/fe/installer-gtk:
141 Add new automated CLI frontend. Add scripts that are the intended means to
142 use each frontend.
143
144 11 Jun 2005; Robin H. Johnson <robbat2@gentoo.org>
145 src/GLIClientController.py:
146 Add null type to network config, for cases where the interface is already up
147 and should not be touched (netboot for example).
148
149 11 Jun 2005; Robin H. Johnson <robbat2@gentoo.org>
150 src/GLIArchitectureTemplate.py:
151 pcmcia is not a variable name for a call to _add_to_runlevel, it should be a
152 string!. Try to use binary packages if available by default.
153
154 11 Jun 2005; Robin H. Johnson <robbat2@gentoo.org>
155 src/GLIArchitectureTemplate.py:
156 More error checking for _add_to_runlevel, to ensure that the init script
157 actually exists before we try to add it. set_services phase must take place
158 after the package installation, otherwise the init scripts might not exist.
159 Find the correct init script for the cron and logging daemons, and add that
160 instead of the package atom.
161
162 11 Jun 2005; Robin H. Johnson <robbat2@gentoo.org>
163 src/GLIArchitectureTemplate.py:
164 Fix up _edit_config so that it works if the file doesn't already exist. Fix
165 usage of 'file' to 'contents' for the variable name, as it shadows
166 __builtin__.file.
167
168 11 Jun 2005; Robin H. Johnson <robbat2@gentoo.org>
169 src/GLIArchitectureTemplate.py:
170 Add MTA install code, and include MTA install phase. Ensure
171 PORT_LOGDIR/PORTDIR_OVERLAY are created in _emerge if needed. Add support
172 for 'none' kernel config for build_kernel phase. Put kernel_script in
173 /var/tmp instead of /root for build_kernel phase.
174
175 11 Jun 2005; Robin H. Johnson <robbat2@gentoo.org> src/GLIInstallProfile.py:
176 Rename mta variables to match syslog/cron variables.
177
178 11 Jun 2005; Robin H. Johnson <robbat2@gentoo.org>
179 src/GLIArchitectureTemplate.py, src/templates/x86ArchitectureTemplate.py,
180 src/.cvsignore, src/fe/dialog/.cvsignore, src/fe/gtk/.cvsignore,
181 src/fe/net/client/.cvsignore, src/fe/net/server/.cvsignore,
182 src/templates/.cvsignore, src/tests/.cvsignore:
183 Refactor partition formatting again to include error checking. Allow 'none'
184 for kernel and bootloader specifications. Add .cvsignore files for .py[co].
185
186 11 Jun 2005; Robin H. Johnson <robbat2@gentoo.org>
187 src/GLIArchitectureTemplate.py, src/templates/x86ArchitectureTemplate.py:
188 Refactor _emerge to remove duplicate code. Refactor mkfs code in backend to
189 only have a single spawn call.

193
194 11 Jun 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
195 Move /tmp/spawn.sh and /tmp/post-install to /var/tmp since that should always
196 be executable.
197
198 10 Jun 2005; Scott Myron <samyron@gentoo.org>
199 Fixed one of the FIXME's in the ClientConfiguration. There is now some
200 error checking when you call set_architecture_template.
201
202 10 Jun 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
203 moved the mkfsopts input to the partition options menu instead of the during
204 the creation process. updated GenDialog to say it supports reiserfs v3.
205
206 9 Jun 2005; Robin H. Johnson <robbat2@gentoo.org> src/GLIInstallProfile.py,

208 Complete support for 'mkfsopts' parameter in main system and dialogfe.
209 Add support for other partition types to dialogfe.
210 Fix all usages of int(possible_big_number) to long(possible_bit_number) to
