7 29 Jun 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
8 Missing \ in sed in _get_packages_to_emerge()
9
10 28 Jun 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
11 fixed agaffney's missing = and extra : in x86AT. commented out crashing line
12 in the dialog.py gauge code.
13
14 28 Jun 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
15 Add code to update_config_files() to go through etc_files and update stuff.
16 Check to see that _etc_files['make.conf'] exists in get_make_conf()
17 Only use float() in partition xml parsing code if type == "free"
18
19 28 Jun 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
20 finished almost all internationalization of GenDialog.
21 attempt at fixing rc.conf function. moved 3 generate functions out of
22 fe/gtk/RcDotConf and put them in Utility. fixed self bug.
23 added dialog.py to the fe/dialog directory so it actually gets used.
24
25 27 Jun 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
26 Roll rc_conf and make_conf into master etc_files structure in InstallProfile.
27
28 27 Jun 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
29 fix extra entry in list_mirrors()
30 beginning internationalization runthrough.
31
32 26 Jun 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
33 added dialog.py to /src temporarily until it gets accepted upstream.
34 fix for unused value in form in dialog.py and changed heights.
35 fix GenDialog forms.
36
37 25 Jun 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
38 Changed hostname/domainname for new baselayout.
39 Changed _add_to_runlevel errors to logs.
40 Updated TODO list to show status of GenDialog
41 More updates to GenDialog including two checklists that probably won't work.
42 update IP to use comma-separated list instead of space separated for services.
43
44 24 Jun 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
45 Add dhcp_options to the CC, CConfig, and GenDialog. More overall changes to
46 GenDialog as it gets closer to completion.
47
48 22 Jun 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
49 Modify get_eth_info() to take a full interface name (eth0 fex). float()
50 instead of int() in add_partition_device_partition() for minor (closes 96804)
51
52 21 Jun 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
53 Changed setup_network_post to check for 'interfaces[interface][0] != "dhcp"'
54 instead of 'interfaces[interface][1]' since DHCP uses that field for its
55 options. setup_network_post() writes custom DHCP options to /etc/conf.d/net.
56
57 20 Jun 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
58 Apply spawn() patch from #96644 (with minor changes). Make sure the return
59 value from all spawn() calls is checked with GLIUtility.exitsuccess(). Fix
60 small error with <pipe>.close() returning None. Fix space vs. tab issue.
61 Fix undefined variable 'output' issue in spawn().
62
63 20 Jun 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>

71 get subarch.
72
73 16 Jun 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
74 Backend partitioning will create disklabel is none exists. Installprofile
75 defaults to "" now instead of "msdos" for disklabel type. Fix for
76 mount_local_partitions() to remember device along with minor in the
77 parts_to_mount dict (closes #96319). mount_local_partitions() cleanups and
78 add else block to log unsupported netmount types to mount_network_shares()
79
80 15 Jun 2005; Robin H. Johnson <robbat2@gentoo.org>
81 src/GLIArchitectureTemplate.py:
82 Refactor kernel_compile common stuff, fix 2.4 build process.
83 src/fe/cli/clife.py:
84 Logging system.
85 src/GLIUtility.py, src/GLIStorageDevice.py:
86 Add comments about re-writes needed for boxes without sysfs.
87
88 15 Jun 2005; Robin H. Johnson <robbat2@gentoo.org>
89 src/GLIArchitectureTemplate.py:
90 2.4 support (pull version data from /usr/src/linux/Makefile), incl.
91 'make dep' call for custom compile. build_mode support for prepare-only and
92 none types completed. custom compile function chains shell functions in
93 spawned script, to allow for catching all errors.
94
95 15 Jun 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
96 fixed up build_kernel in ArchTemplate for build_mode as well as in dialogfe
97 and GenDialog. other gendialog updates as well. kernel updates untested.
98
99 14 Jun 2005; Robin H. Johnson <robbat2@gentoo.org>
100 src/GLIInstallProfile.py:
101 Change structure of etc-portage stuff. The serialization was broken before my
102 last commit, and I am the only person that's ever used it. The new schema is
103 as follows:
104 <etc-portage>
105 <file name="package.mask"/>
106 <file name="package.unmask">
107 <entry atom="sys-kernel/openmosix-sources"/>
108 </file>
109 <file name="package.use">
110 <entry atom="sys-libs/db">
111 -java
112 </entry>
113 <entry atom="dev-libs/cyrus-sasl">
114 -ldap
115 </entry>
116 </file>
117 </etc-portage>
118
119
120 13 Jun 2005; Robin H. Johnson <robbat2@gentoo.org>
121 src/GLIInstallProfile.py:
122 Add new entry for gli-profile/kernel-build-method item. Add missing
123 serialize_etc_portage (temporary). Make serialize_make_conf always print the
124 keys in the same order.
125
126 13 Jun 2005; Robin H. Johnson <robbat2@gentoo.org>
127 src/GLIArchitectureTemplate.py:
128 Clean up commenting used by _edit_config(), and fix bug where wrong comment
129 was repeatedly appended to make.conf.
130
131 13 Jun 2005; Robin H. Johnson <robbat2@gentoo.org>
132 src/GLIArchitectureTemplate.py:
133 Put some Linux-2.6 specific code under a if statement. Store list of
134 successfully mounted swap device for using swapoff. Add proper error checking
135 to install_packages and install_filesystem_tools. Fixed namespace conflicts on
136 'file'. Clean up some redundant code (thanks to pychecker).'
137
138 13 Jun 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
139 Fix typos: get_extended() instead of get_extended_partition(). Added
140 list_mirrors() and list_stage_tarballs_from_mirror() functions to GLIUtility.
141 Change _emerge("sync") call to direct call to spawn to avoid 'emerge -k sync'
142
143 12 Jun 2005; John N. Laliberte <allanonjl@gentoo.org>
144 GLIInstallProfile.py: add missing set for dhcp_options if a tuple is passed
145 in add_network_interface.
146
147 12 Jun 2005; Robin H. Johnson <robbat2@gentoo.org> src/GLIArchitectureTemplate.py:
148 ensure PORTAGE_TMPDIR/PORT_LOGDIR/PORTDIR_OVERLAY/PKGDIR exist prior to any
149 usage - this caused a failure for stage1/stage2 previously. swapoff for swap
150 space at end of install. Mount /dev, /dev/shm, /dev/pts and /sys during
151 prepare_chroot.
152
153 11 Jun 2005; Robin H. Johnson <robbat2@gentoo.org> +src/cli/clife.py,
154 +src/cli/README, +src/fe/installer-cli, +src/fe/installer-dialog,
155 +src/fe/installer-gtk:
156 Add new automated CLI frontend. Add scripts that are the intended means to
157 use each frontend.
158
159 11 Jun 2005; Robin H. Johnson <robbat2@gentoo.org>
160 src/GLIClientController.py:
161 Add null type to network config, for cases where the interface is already up
162 and should not be touched (netboot for example).
163
164 11 Jun 2005; Robin H. Johnson <robbat2@gentoo.org>
165 src/GLIArchitectureTemplate.py:
166 pcmcia is not a variable name for a call to _add_to_runlevel, it should be a
167 string!. Try to use binary packages if available by default.
168
169 11 Jun 2005; Robin H. Johnson <robbat2@gentoo.org>
170 src/GLIArchitectureTemplate.py:
171 More error checking for _add_to_runlevel, to ensure that the init script
172 actually exists before we try to add it. set_services phase must take place
173 after the package installation, otherwise the init scripts might not exist.
174 Find the correct init script for the cron and logging daemons, and add that
175 instead of the package atom.
176
177 11 Jun 2005; Robin H. Johnson <robbat2@gentoo.org>
178 src/GLIArchitectureTemplate.py:
179 Fix up _edit_config so that it works if the file doesn't already exist. Fix
180 usage of 'file' to 'contents' for the variable name, as it shadows
181 __builtin__.file.
182
183 11 Jun 2005; Robin H. Johnson <robbat2@gentoo.org>
184 src/GLIArchitectureTemplate.py:
185 Add MTA install code, and include MTA install phase. Ensure
186 PORT_LOGDIR/PORTDIR_OVERLAY are created in _emerge if needed. Add support
187 for 'none' kernel config for build_kernel phase. Put kernel_script in
188 /var/tmp instead of /root for build_kernel phase.
189
190 11 Jun 2005; Robin H. Johnson <robbat2@gentoo.org> src/GLIInstallProfile.py:
191 Rename mta variables to match syslog/cron variables.
192
193 11 Jun 2005; Robin H. Johnson <robbat2@gentoo.org>
194 src/GLIArchitectureTemplate.py, src/templates/x86ArchitectureTemplate.py,
195 src/.cvsignore, src/fe/dialog/.cvsignore, src/fe/gtk/.cvsignore,
196 src/fe/net/client/.cvsignore, src/fe/net/server/.cvsignore,
197 src/templates/.cvsignore, src/tests/.cvsignore:
198 Refactor partition formatting again to include error checking. Allow 'none'
199 for kernel and bootloader specifications. Add .cvsignore files for .py[co].
200
201 11 Jun 2005; Robin H. Johnson <robbat2@gentoo.org>
202 src/GLIArchitectureTemplate.py, src/templates/x86ArchitectureTemplate.py:

208
209 11 Jun 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
210 Move /tmp/spawn.sh and /tmp/post-install to /var/tmp since that should always
211 be executable.
212
213 10 Jun 2005; Scott Myron <samyron@gentoo.org>
214 Fixed one of the FIXME's in the ClientConfiguration. There is now some
215 error checking when you call set_architecture_template.
216
217 10 Jun 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
218 moved the mkfsopts input to the partition options menu instead of the during
219 the creation process. updated GenDialog to say it supports reiserfs v3.
220
221 9 Jun 2005; Robin H. Johnson <robbat2@gentoo.org> src/GLIInstallProfile.py,

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