6
7 28 Jun 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
8 fixed agaffney's missing = and extra : in x86AT. commented out crashing line
9 in the dialog.py gauge code.
10
11 28 Jun 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
12 Add code to update_config_files() to go through etc_files and update stuff.
13 Check to see that _etc_files['make.conf'] exists in get_make_conf()
14 Only use float() in partition xml parsing code if type == "free"
15
16 28 Jun 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
17 finished almost all internationalization of GenDialog.
18 attempt at fixing rc.conf function. moved 3 generate functions out of
19 fe/gtk/RcDotConf and put them in Utility. fixed self bug.
20 added dialog.py to the fe/dialog directory so it actually gets used.
21
22 27 Jun 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
23 Roll rc_conf and make_conf into master etc_files structure in InstallProfile.
24
25 27 Jun 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
26 fix extra entry in list_mirrors()
27 beginning internationalization runthrough.
28
29 26 Jun 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
30 added dialog.py to /src temporarily until it gets accepted upstream.
31 fix for unused value in form in dialog.py and changed heights.
32 fix GenDialog forms.
33
34 25 Jun 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
35 Changed hostname/domainname for new baselayout.
36 Changed _add_to_runlevel errors to logs.
37 Updated TODO list to show status of GenDialog
38 More updates to GenDialog including two checklists that probably won't work.
39 update IP to use comma-separated list instead of space separated for services.
40
41 24 Jun 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
42 Add dhcp_options to the CC, CConfig, and GenDialog. More overall changes to
43 GenDialog as it gets closer to completion.
44
45 22 Jun 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
46 Modify get_eth_info() to take a full interface name (eth0 fex). float()
47 instead of int() in add_partition_device_partition() for minor (closes 96804)
48
49 21 Jun 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
50 Changed setup_network_post to check for 'interfaces[interface][0] != "dhcp"'
51 instead of 'interfaces[interface][1]' since DHCP uses that field for its
52 options. setup_network_post() writes custom DHCP options to /etc/conf.d/net.
53
54 20 Jun 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
55 Apply spawn() patch from #96644 (with minor changes). Make sure the return
56 value from all spawn() calls is checked with GLIUtility.exitsuccess(). Fix
57 small error with <pipe>.close() returning None. Fix space vs. tab issue.
58 Fix undefined variable 'output' issue in spawn().
59
60 20 Jun 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>

68 get subarch.
69
70 16 Jun 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
71 Backend partitioning will create disklabel is none exists. Installprofile
72 defaults to "" now instead of "msdos" for disklabel type. Fix for
73 mount_local_partitions() to remember device along with minor in the
74 parts_to_mount dict (closes #96319). mount_local_partitions() cleanups and
75 add else block to log unsupported netmount types to mount_network_shares()
76
77 15 Jun 2005; Robin H. Johnson <robbat2@gentoo.org>
78 src/GLIArchitectureTemplate.py:
79 Refactor kernel_compile common stuff, fix 2.4 build process.
80 src/fe/cli/clife.py:
81 Logging system.
82 src/GLIUtility.py, src/GLIStorageDevice.py:
83 Add comments about re-writes needed for boxes without sysfs.
84
85 15 Jun 2005; Robin H. Johnson <robbat2@gentoo.org>
86 src/GLIArchitectureTemplate.py:
87 2.4 support (pull version data from /usr/src/linux/Makefile), incl.
88 'make dep' call for custom compile. build_mode support for prepare-only and
89 none types completed. custom compile function chains shell functions in
90 spawned script, to allow for catching all errors.
91
92 15 Jun 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
93 fixed up build_kernel in ArchTemplate for build_mode as well as in dialogfe
94 and GenDialog. other gendialog updates as well. kernel updates untested.
95
96 14 Jun 2005; Robin H. Johnson <robbat2@gentoo.org>
97 src/GLIInstallProfile.py:
98 Change structure of etc-portage stuff. The serialization was broken before my
99 last commit, and I am the only person that's ever used it. The new schema is
100 as follows:
101 <etc-portage>
102 <file name="package.mask"/>
103 <file name="package.unmask">
104 <entry atom="sys-kernel/openmosix-sources"/>
105 </file>
106 <file name="package.use">
107 <entry atom="sys-libs/db">
108 -java
109 </entry>
110 <entry atom="dev-libs/cyrus-sasl">
111 -ldap
112 </entry>
113 </file>
114 </etc-portage>
115
116
117 13 Jun 2005; Robin H. Johnson <robbat2@gentoo.org>
118 src/GLIInstallProfile.py:
119 Add new entry for gli-profile/kernel-build-method item. Add missing
120 serialize_etc_portage (temporary). Make serialize_make_conf always print the
121 keys in the same order.
122
123 13 Jun 2005; Robin H. Johnson <robbat2@gentoo.org>
124 src/GLIArchitectureTemplate.py:
125 Clean up commenting used by _edit_config(), and fix bug where wrong comment
126 was repeatedly appended to make.conf.
127
128 13 Jun 2005; Robin H. Johnson <robbat2@gentoo.org>
129 src/GLIArchitectureTemplate.py:
130 Put some Linux-2.6 specific code under a if statement. Store list of
131 successfully mounted swap device for using swapoff. Add proper error checking
132 to install_packages and install_filesystem_tools. Fixed namespace conflicts on
133 'file'. Clean up some redundant code (thanks to pychecker).'
134
135 13 Jun 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
136 Fix typos: get_extended() instead of get_extended_partition(). Added
137 list_mirrors() and list_stage_tarballs_from_mirror() functions to GLIUtility.
138 Change _emerge("sync") call to direct call to spawn to avoid 'emerge -k sync'
139
140 12 Jun 2005; John N. Laliberte <allanonjl@gentoo.org>
141 GLIInstallProfile.py: add missing set for dhcp_options if a tuple is passed
142 in add_network_interface.
143
144 12 Jun 2005; Robin H. Johnson <robbat2@gentoo.org> src/GLIArchitectureTemplate.py:
145 ensure PORTAGE_TMPDIR/PORT_LOGDIR/PORTDIR_OVERLAY/PKGDIR exist prior to any
146 usage - this caused a failure for stage1/stage2 previously. swapoff for swap
147 space at end of install. Mount /dev, /dev/shm, /dev/pts and /sys during
148 prepare_chroot.
149
150 11 Jun 2005; Robin H. Johnson <robbat2@gentoo.org> +src/cli/clife.py,
151 +src/cli/README, +src/fe/installer-cli, +src/fe/installer-dialog,
152 +src/fe/installer-gtk:
153 Add new automated CLI frontend. Add scripts that are the intended means to
154 use each frontend.
155
156 11 Jun 2005; Robin H. Johnson <robbat2@gentoo.org>
157 src/GLIClientController.py:
158 Add null type to network config, for cases where the interface is already up
159 and should not be touched (netboot for example).
160
161 11 Jun 2005; Robin H. Johnson <robbat2@gentoo.org>
162 src/GLIArchitectureTemplate.py:
163 pcmcia is not a variable name for a call to _add_to_runlevel, it should be a
164 string!. Try to use binary packages if available by default.
165
166 11 Jun 2005; Robin H. Johnson <robbat2@gentoo.org>
167 src/GLIArchitectureTemplate.py:
168 More error checking for _add_to_runlevel, to ensure that the init script
169 actually exists before we try to add it. set_services phase must take place
170 after the package installation, otherwise the init scripts might not exist.
171 Find the correct init script for the cron and logging daemons, and add that
172 instead of the package atom.
173
174 11 Jun 2005; Robin H. Johnson <robbat2@gentoo.org>
175 src/GLIArchitectureTemplate.py:
176 Fix up _edit_config so that it works if the file doesn't already exist. Fix
177 usage of 'file' to 'contents' for the variable name, as it shadows
178 __builtin__.file.
179
180 11 Jun 2005; Robin H. Johnson <robbat2@gentoo.org>
181 src/GLIArchitectureTemplate.py:
182 Add MTA install code, and include MTA install phase. Ensure
183 PORT_LOGDIR/PORTDIR_OVERLAY are created in _emerge if needed. Add support
184 for 'none' kernel config for build_kernel phase. Put kernel_script in
185 /var/tmp instead of /root for build_kernel phase.
186
187 11 Jun 2005; Robin H. Johnson <robbat2@gentoo.org> src/GLIInstallProfile.py:
188 Rename mta variables to match syslog/cron variables.
189
190 11 Jun 2005; Robin H. Johnson <robbat2@gentoo.org>
191 src/GLIArchitectureTemplate.py, src/templates/x86ArchitectureTemplate.py,
192 src/.cvsignore, src/fe/dialog/.cvsignore, src/fe/gtk/.cvsignore,
193 src/fe/net/client/.cvsignore, src/fe/net/server/.cvsignore,
194 src/templates/.cvsignore, src/tests/.cvsignore:
195 Refactor partition formatting again to include error checking. Allow 'none'
196 for kernel and bootloader specifications. Add .cvsignore files for .py[co].
197
198 11 Jun 2005; Robin H. Johnson <robbat2@gentoo.org>
199 src/GLIArchitectureTemplate.py, src/templates/x86ArchitectureTemplate.py:

205
206 11 Jun 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
207 Move /tmp/spawn.sh and /tmp/post-install to /var/tmp since that should always
208 be executable.
209
210 10 Jun 2005; Scott Myron <samyron@gentoo.org>
211 Fixed one of the FIXME's in the ClientConfiguration. There is now some
212 error checking when you call set_architecture_template.
213
214 10 Jun 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
215 moved the mkfsopts input to the partition options menu instead of the during
216 the creation process. updated GenDialog to say it supports reiserfs v3.
217
