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

62 get subarch.
63
64 16 Jun 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
65 Backend partitioning will create disklabel is none exists. Installprofile
66 defaults to "" now instead of "msdos" for disklabel type. Fix for
67 mount_local_partitions() to remember device along with minor in the
68 parts_to_mount dict (closes #96319). mount_local_partitions() cleanups and
69 add else block to log unsupported netmount types to mount_network_shares()
70
71 15 Jun 2005; Robin H. Johnson <robbat2@gentoo.org>
72 src/GLIArchitectureTemplate.py:
73 Refactor kernel_compile common stuff, fix 2.4 build process.
74 src/fe/cli/clife.py:
75 Logging system.
76 src/GLIUtility.py, src/GLIStorageDevice.py:
77 Add comments about re-writes needed for boxes without sysfs.
78
79 15 Jun 2005; Robin H. Johnson <robbat2@gentoo.org>
80 src/GLIArchitectureTemplate.py:
81 2.4 support (pull version data from /usr/src/linux/Makefile), incl.
82 'make dep' call for custom compile. build_mode support for prepare-only and
83 none types completed. custom compile function chains shell functions in
84 spawned script, to allow for catching all errors.
85
86 15 Jun 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
87 fixed up build_kernel in ArchTemplate for build_mode as well as in dialogfe
88 and GenDialog. other gendialog updates as well. kernel updates untested.
89
90 14 Jun 2005; Robin H. Johnson <robbat2@gentoo.org>
91 src/GLIInstallProfile.py:
92 Change structure of etc-portage stuff. The serialization was broken before my
93 last commit, and I am the only person that's ever used it. The new schema is
94 as follows:
95 <etc-portage>
96 <file name="package.mask"/>
97 <file name="package.unmask">
98 <entry atom="sys-kernel/openmosix-sources"/>
99 </file>
100 <file name="package.use">
101 <entry atom="sys-libs/db">
102 -java
103 </entry>
104 <entry atom="dev-libs/cyrus-sasl">
105 -ldap
106 </entry>
107 </file>
108 </etc-portage>
109
110
111 13 Jun 2005; Robin H. Johnson <robbat2@gentoo.org>
112 src/GLIInstallProfile.py:
113 Add new entry for gli-profile/kernel-build-method item. Add missing
114 serialize_etc_portage (temporary). Make serialize_make_conf always print the
115 keys in the same order.
116
117 13 Jun 2005; Robin H. Johnson <robbat2@gentoo.org>
118 src/GLIArchitectureTemplate.py:
119 Clean up commenting used by _edit_config(), and fix bug where wrong comment
120 was repeatedly appended to make.conf.
121
122 13 Jun 2005; Robin H. Johnson <robbat2@gentoo.org>
123 src/GLIArchitectureTemplate.py:
124 Put some Linux-2.6 specific code under a if statement. Store list of
125 successfully mounted swap device for using swapoff. Add proper error checking
126 to install_packages and install_filesystem_tools. Fixed namespace conflicts on
127 'file'. Clean up some redundant code (thanks to pychecker).'
128
129 13 Jun 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
130 Fix typos: get_extended() instead of get_extended_partition(). Added
131 list_mirrors() and list_stage_tarballs_from_mirror() functions to GLIUtility.
132 Change _emerge("sync") call to direct call to spawn to avoid 'emerge -k sync'
133
134 12 Jun 2005; John N. Laliberte <allanonjl@gentoo.org>
135 GLIInstallProfile.py: add missing set for dhcp_options if a tuple is passed
136 in add_network_interface.
137
138 12 Jun 2005; Robin H. Johnson <robbat2@gentoo.org> src/GLIArchitectureTemplate.py:
139 ensure PORTAGE_TMPDIR/PORT_LOGDIR/PORTDIR_OVERLAY/PKGDIR exist prior to any
140 usage - this caused a failure for stage1/stage2 previously. swapoff for swap
141 space at end of install. Mount /dev, /dev/shm, /dev/pts and /sys during
142 prepare_chroot.
143
144 11 Jun 2005; Robin H. Johnson <robbat2@gentoo.org> +src/cli/clife.py,
145 +src/cli/README, +src/fe/installer-cli, +src/fe/installer-dialog,
146 +src/fe/installer-gtk:
147 Add new automated CLI frontend. Add scripts that are the intended means to
148 use each frontend.
149
150 11 Jun 2005; Robin H. Johnson <robbat2@gentoo.org>
151 src/GLIClientController.py:
152 Add null type to network config, for cases where the interface is already up
153 and should not be touched (netboot for example).
154
155 11 Jun 2005; Robin H. Johnson <robbat2@gentoo.org>
156 src/GLIArchitectureTemplate.py:
157 pcmcia is not a variable name for a call to _add_to_runlevel, it should be a
158 string!. Try to use binary packages if available by default.
159
160 11 Jun 2005; Robin H. Johnson <robbat2@gentoo.org>
161 src/GLIArchitectureTemplate.py:
162 More error checking for _add_to_runlevel, to ensure that the init script
163 actually exists before we try to add it. set_services phase must take place
164 after the package installation, otherwise the init scripts might not exist.
165 Find the correct init script for the cron and logging daemons, and add that
166 instead of the package atom.
167
168 11 Jun 2005; Robin H. Johnson <robbat2@gentoo.org>
169 src/GLIArchitectureTemplate.py:
170 Fix up _edit_config so that it works if the file doesn't already exist. Fix
171 usage of 'file' to 'contents' for the variable name, as it shadows
172 __builtin__.file.
173
174 11 Jun 2005; Robin H. Johnson <robbat2@gentoo.org>
175 src/GLIArchitectureTemplate.py:
176 Add MTA install code, and include MTA install phase. Ensure
177 PORT_LOGDIR/PORTDIR_OVERLAY are created in _emerge if needed. Add support
178 for 'none' kernel config for build_kernel phase. Put kernel_script in
179 /var/tmp instead of /root for build_kernel phase.
180
181 11 Jun 2005; Robin H. Johnson <robbat2@gentoo.org> src/GLIInstallProfile.py:
182 Rename mta variables to match syslog/cron variables.
183
184 11 Jun 2005; Robin H. Johnson <robbat2@gentoo.org>
185 src/GLIArchitectureTemplate.py, src/templates/x86ArchitectureTemplate.py,
186 src/.cvsignore, src/fe/dialog/.cvsignore, src/fe/gtk/.cvsignore,
187 src/fe/net/client/.cvsignore, src/fe/net/server/.cvsignore,
188 src/templates/.cvsignore, src/tests/.cvsignore:
189 Refactor partition formatting again to include error checking. Allow 'none'
190 for kernel and bootloader specifications. Add .cvsignore files for .py[co].
191
192 11 Jun 2005; Robin H. Johnson <robbat2@gentoo.org>
193 src/GLIArchitectureTemplate.py, src/templates/x86ArchitectureTemplate.py:

199
200 11 Jun 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>

202 be executable.
203
204 10 Jun 2005; Scott Myron <samyron@gentoo.org>
205 Fixed one of the FIXME's in the ClientConfiguration. There is now some
206 error checking when you call set_architecture_template.
207
208 10 Jun 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
209 moved the mkfsopts input to the partition options menu instead of the during
210 the creation process. updated GenDialog to say it supports reiserfs v3.
211
