6
7 28 Jun 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
8 finished almost all internationalization of GenDialog.
9 attempt at fixing rc.conf function. moved 3 generate functions out of
10 fe/gtk/RcDotConf and put them in Utility.
11
12 27 Jun 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
13 Roll rc_conf and make_conf into master etc_files structure in InstallProfile.
14
15 27 Jun 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
16 fix extra entry in list_mirrors()
17 beginning internationalization runthrough.
18
19 26 Jun 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
20 added dialog.py to /src temporarily until it gets accepted upstream.
21 fix for unused value in form in dialog.py and changed heights.
22 fix GenDialog forms.
23
24 25 Jun 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
25 Changed hostname/domainname for new baselayout.
26 Changed _add_to_runlevel errors to logs.
27 Updated TODO list to show status of GenDialog
28 More updates to GenDialog including two checklists that probably won't work.
29 update IP to use comma-separated list instead of space separated for services.
30
31 24 Jun 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
32 Add dhcp_options to the CC, CConfig, and GenDialog. More overall changes to
33 GenDialog as it gets closer to completion.
34
35 22 Jun 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
36 Modify get_eth_info() to take a full interface name (eth0 fex). float()
37 instead of int() in add_partition_device_partition() for minor (closes 96804)
38
39 21 Jun 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
40 Changed setup_network_post to check for 'interfaces[interface][0] != "dhcp"'
41 instead of 'interfaces[interface][1]' since DHCP uses that field for its
42 options. setup_network_post() writes custom DHCP options to /etc/conf.d/net.
43
44 20 Jun 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
45 Apply spawn() patch from #96644 (with minor changes). Make sure the return
46 value from all spawn() calls is checked with GLIUtility.exitsuccess(). Fix
47 small error with <pipe>.close() returning None. Fix space vs. tab issue.
48 Fix undefined variable 'output' issue in spawn().
49
50 20 Jun 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
51 More updates to GenDialog and gli-d.
52
53 19 Jun 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>

58 get subarch.
59
60 16 Jun 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
61 Backend partitioning will create disklabel is none exists. Installprofile
62 defaults to "" now instead of "msdos" for disklabel type. Fix for
63 mount_local_partitions() to remember device along with minor in the
64 parts_to_mount dict (closes #96319). mount_local_partitions() cleanups and
65 add else block to log unsupported netmount types to mount_network_shares()
66
67 15 Jun 2005; Robin H. Johnson <robbat2@gentoo.org>
68 src/GLIArchitectureTemplate.py:
69 Refactor kernel_compile common stuff, fix 2.4 build process.
70 src/fe/cli/clife.py:
71 Logging system.
72 src/GLIUtility.py, src/GLIStorageDevice.py:
73 Add comments about re-writes needed for boxes without sysfs.
74
75 15 Jun 2005; Robin H. Johnson <robbat2@gentoo.org>
76 src/GLIArchitectureTemplate.py:
77 2.4 support (pull version data from /usr/src/linux/Makefile), incl.
78 'make dep' call for custom compile. build_mode support for prepare-only and
79 none types completed. custom compile function chains shell functions in
80 spawned script, to allow for catching all errors.
81
82 15 Jun 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
83 fixed up build_kernel in ArchTemplate for build_mode as well as in dialogfe
84 and GenDialog. other gendialog updates as well. kernel updates untested.
85
86 14 Jun 2005; Robin H. Johnson <robbat2@gentoo.org>
87 src/GLIInstallProfile.py:
88 Change structure of etc-portage stuff. The serialization was broken before my
89 last commit, and I am the only person that's ever used it. The new schema is
90 as follows:
91 <etc-portage>
92 <file name="package.mask"/>
93 <file name="package.unmask">
94 <entry atom="sys-kernel/openmosix-sources"/>
95 </file>
96 <file name="package.use">
97 <entry atom="sys-libs/db">
98 -java
99 </entry>
100 <entry atom="dev-libs/cyrus-sasl">
101 -ldap
102 </entry>
103 </file>
104 </etc-portage>
105
106
107 13 Jun 2005; Robin H. Johnson <robbat2@gentoo.org>
108 src/GLIInstallProfile.py:
109 Add new entry for gli-profile/kernel-build-method item. Add missing
110 serialize_etc_portage (temporary). Make serialize_make_conf always print the
111 keys in the same order.
112
113 13 Jun 2005; Robin H. Johnson <robbat2@gentoo.org>
114 src/GLIArchitectureTemplate.py:
115 Clean up commenting used by _edit_config(), and fix bug where wrong comment
116 was repeatedly appended to make.conf.
117
118 13 Jun 2005; Robin H. Johnson <robbat2@gentoo.org>
119 src/GLIArchitectureTemplate.py:
120 Put some Linux-2.6 specific code under a if statement. Store list of
121 successfully mounted swap device for using swapoff. Add proper error checking
122 to install_packages and install_filesystem_tools. Fixed namespace conflicts on
123 'file'. Clean up some redundant code (thanks to pychecker).'
124
125 13 Jun 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
126 Fix typos: get_extended() instead of get_extended_partition(). Added
127 list_mirrors() and list_stage_tarballs_from_mirror() functions to GLIUtility.
128 Change _emerge("sync") call to direct call to spawn to avoid 'emerge -k sync'
129
130 12 Jun 2005; John N. Laliberte <allanonjl@gentoo.org>
131 GLIInstallProfile.py: add missing set for dhcp_options if a tuple is passed
132 in add_network_interface.
133
134 12 Jun 2005; Robin H. Johnson <robbat2@gentoo.org> src/GLIArchitectureTemplate.py:
135 ensure PORTAGE_TMPDIR/PORT_LOGDIR/PORTDIR_OVERLAY/PKGDIR exist prior to any
136 usage - this caused a failure for stage1/stage2 previously. swapoff for swap
137 space at end of install. Mount /dev, /dev/shm, /dev/pts and /sys during
138 prepare_chroot.
139
140 11 Jun 2005; Robin H. Johnson <robbat2@gentoo.org> +src/cli/clife.py,
141 +src/cli/README, +src/fe/installer-cli, +src/fe/installer-dialog,
142 +src/fe/installer-gtk:
143 Add new automated CLI frontend. Add scripts that are the intended means to
144 use each frontend.
145
146 11 Jun 2005; Robin H. Johnson <robbat2@gentoo.org>
147 src/GLIClientController.py:
148 Add null type to network config, for cases where the interface is already up
149 and should not be touched (netboot for example).
150
151 11 Jun 2005; Robin H. Johnson <robbat2@gentoo.org>
152 src/GLIArchitectureTemplate.py:
153 pcmcia is not a variable name for a call to _add_to_runlevel, it should be a
154 string!. Try to use binary packages if available by default.
155
156 11 Jun 2005; Robin H. Johnson <robbat2@gentoo.org>
157 src/GLIArchitectureTemplate.py:
158 More error checking for _add_to_runlevel, to ensure that the init script
159 actually exists before we try to add it. set_services phase must take place
160 after the package installation, otherwise the init scripts might not exist.
161 Find the correct init script for the cron and logging daemons, and add that
162 instead of the package atom.
163
164 11 Jun 2005; Robin H. Johnson <robbat2@gentoo.org>
165 src/GLIArchitectureTemplate.py:
166 Fix up _edit_config so that it works if the file doesn't already exist. Fix
167 usage of 'file' to 'contents' for the variable name, as it shadows
168 __builtin__.file.
169
170 11 Jun 2005; Robin H. Johnson <robbat2@gentoo.org>
171 src/GLIArchitectureTemplate.py:
172 Add MTA install code, and include MTA install phase. Ensure
173 PORT_LOGDIR/PORTDIR_OVERLAY are created in _emerge if needed. Add support
174 for 'none' kernel config for build_kernel phase. Put kernel_script in
175 /var/tmp instead of /root for build_kernel phase.
176
177 11 Jun 2005; Robin H. Johnson <robbat2@gentoo.org> src/GLIInstallProfile.py:
178 Rename mta variables to match syslog/cron variables.
179
180 11 Jun 2005; Robin H. Johnson <robbat2@gentoo.org>
181 src/GLIArchitectureTemplate.py, src/templates/x86ArchitectureTemplate.py,
182 src/.cvsignore, src/fe/dialog/.cvsignore, src/fe/gtk/.cvsignore,
183 src/fe/net/client/.cvsignore, src/fe/net/server/.cvsignore,
184 src/templates/.cvsignore, src/tests/.cvsignore:
185 Refactor partition formatting again to include error checking. Allow 'none'
186 for kernel and bootloader specifications. Add .cvsignore files for .py[co].
187
188 11 Jun 2005; Robin H. Johnson <robbat2@gentoo.org>
189 src/GLIArchitectureTemplate.py, src/templates/x86ArchitectureTemplate.py:

195
196 11 Jun 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
197 Move /tmp/spawn.sh and /tmp/post-install to /var/tmp since that should always
198 be executable.
199
200 10 Jun 2005; Scott Myron <samyron@gentoo.org>
201 Fixed one of the FIXME's in the ClientConfiguration. There is now some
202 error checking when you call set_architecture_template.
203
204 10 Jun 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
205 moved the mkfsopts input to the partition options menu instead of the during
206 the creation process. updated GenDialog to say it supports reiserfs v3.
207
