12
13 28 Jun 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
14 fixed agaffney's missing = and extra : in x86AT. commented out crashing line
15 in the dialog.py gauge code.
16

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

74 get subarch.
75
76 16 Jun 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
77 Backend partitioning will create disklabel is none exists. Installprofile
78 defaults to "" now instead of "msdos" for disklabel type. Fix for
79 mount_local_partitions() to remember device along with minor in the
80 parts_to_mount dict (closes #96319). mount_local_partitions() cleanups and
81 add else block to log unsupported netmount types to mount_network_shares()
82
83 15 Jun 2005; Robin H. Johnson <robbat2@gentoo.org>
84 src/GLIArchitectureTemplate.py:
85 Refactor kernel_compile common stuff, fix 2.4 build process.
86 src/fe/cli/clife.py:
87 Logging system.

89 Add comments about re-writes needed for boxes without sysfs.
90
91 15 Jun 2005; Robin H. Johnson <robbat2@gentoo.org>
92 src/GLIArchitectureTemplate.py:
93 2.4 support (pull version data from /usr/src/linux/Makefile), incl.
94 'make dep' call for custom compile. build_mode support for prepare-only and
95 none types completed. custom compile function chains shell functions in
96 spawned script, to allow for catching all errors.
97
98 15 Jun 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
99 fixed up build_kernel in ArchTemplate for build_mode as well as in dialogfe
100 and GenDialog. other gendialog updates as well. kernel updates untested.
101
102 14 Jun 2005; Robin H. Johnson <robbat2@gentoo.org>
103 src/GLIInstallProfile.py:
104 Change structure of etc-portage stuff. The serialization was broken before my
105 last commit, and I am the only person that's ever used it. The new schema is
106 as follows:
107 <etc-portage>
108 <file name="package.mask"/>
109 <file name="package.unmask">
110 <entry atom="sys-kernel/openmosix-sources"/>
111 </file>
112 <file name="package.use">
113 <entry atom="sys-libs/db">
114 -java
115 </entry>
116 <entry atom="dev-libs/cyrus-sasl">
117 -ldap
118 </entry>
119 </file>
120 </etc-portage>
121
122
123 13 Jun 2005; Robin H. Johnson <robbat2@gentoo.org>
124 src/GLIInstallProfile.py:
125 Add new entry for gli-profile/kernel-build-method item. Add missing
126 serialize_etc_portage (temporary). Make serialize_make_conf always print the
127 keys in the same order.
128
129 13 Jun 2005; Robin H. Johnson <robbat2@gentoo.org>
130 src/GLIArchitectureTemplate.py:
131 Clean up commenting used by _edit_config(), and fix bug where wrong comment
132 was repeatedly appended to make.conf.
133
134 13 Jun 2005; Robin H. Johnson <robbat2@gentoo.org>
135 src/GLIArchitectureTemplate.py:
136 Put some Linux-2.6 specific code under a if statement. Store list of
137 successfully mounted swap device for using swapoff. Add proper error checking
138 to install_packages and install_filesystem_tools. Fixed namespace conflicts on
139 'file'. Clean up some redundant code (thanks to pychecker).'
140
141 13 Jun 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
142 Fix typos: get_extended() instead of get_extended_partition(). Added
143 list_mirrors() and list_stage_tarballs_from_mirror() functions to GLIUtility.
144 Change _emerge("sync") call to direct call to spawn to avoid 'emerge -k sync'
145
146 12 Jun 2005; John N. Laliberte <allanonjl@gentoo.org>
147 GLIInstallProfile.py: add missing set for dhcp_options if a tuple is passed
148 in add_network_interface.
149
150 12 Jun 2005; Robin H. Johnson <robbat2@gentoo.org> src/GLIArchitectureTemplate.py:
151 ensure PORTAGE_TMPDIR/PORT_LOGDIR/PORTDIR_OVERLAY/PKGDIR exist prior to any
152 usage - this caused a failure for stage1/stage2 previously. swapoff for swap
153 space at end of install. Mount /dev, /dev/shm, /dev/pts and /sys during
154 prepare_chroot.
155
156 11 Jun 2005; Robin H. Johnson <robbat2@gentoo.org> +src/cli/clife.py,
157 +src/cli/README, +src/fe/installer-cli, +src/fe/installer-dialog,
158 +src/fe/installer-gtk:
159 Add new automated CLI frontend. Add scripts that are the intended means to
160 use each frontend.
161
162 11 Jun 2005; Robin H. Johnson <robbat2@gentoo.org>
163 src/GLIClientController.py:
164 Add null type to network config, for cases where the interface is already up
165 and should not be touched (netboot for example).
166
167 11 Jun 2005; Robin H. Johnson <robbat2@gentoo.org>
168 src/GLIArchitectureTemplate.py:
169 pcmcia is not a variable name for a call to _add_to_runlevel, it should be a
170 string!. Try to use binary packages if available by default.
171
172 11 Jun 2005; Robin H. Johnson <robbat2@gentoo.org>
173 src/GLIArchitectureTemplate.py:
174 More error checking for _add_to_runlevel, to ensure that the init script
175 actually exists before we try to add it. set_services phase must take place
176 after the package installation, otherwise the init scripts might not exist.
177 Find the correct init script for the cron and logging daemons, and add that
178 instead of the package atom.
179
180 11 Jun 2005; Robin H. Johnson <robbat2@gentoo.org>
181 src/GLIArchitectureTemplate.py:
182 Fix up _edit_config so that it works if the file doesn't already exist. Fix
183 usage of 'file' to 'contents' for the variable name, as it shadows
184 __builtin__.file.
185
186 11 Jun 2005; Robin H. Johnson <robbat2@gentoo.org>
187 src/GLIArchitectureTemplate.py:
188 Add MTA install code, and include MTA install phase. Ensure
189 PORT_LOGDIR/PORTDIR_OVERLAY are created in _emerge if needed. Add support
190 for 'none' kernel config for build_kernel phase. Put kernel_script in
191 /var/tmp instead of /root for build_kernel phase.
192
193 11 Jun 2005; Robin H. Johnson <robbat2@gentoo.org> src/GLIInstallProfile.py:
194 Rename mta variables to match syslog/cron variables.
195
196 11 Jun 2005; Robin H. Johnson <robbat2@gentoo.org>
197 src/GLIArchitectureTemplate.py, src/templates/x86ArchitectureTemplate.py,
198 src/.cvsignore, src/fe/dialog/.cvsignore, src/fe/gtk/.cvsignore,
199 src/fe/net/client/.cvsignore, src/fe/net/server/.cvsignore,
200 src/templates/.cvsignore, src/tests/.cvsignore:
201 Refactor partition formatting again to include error checking. Allow 'none'
202 for kernel and bootloader specifications. Add .cvsignore files for .py[co].
203
204 11 Jun 2005; Robin H. Johnson <robbat2@gentoo.org>
205 src/GLIArchitectureTemplate.py, src/templates/x86ArchitectureTemplate.py:

211
212 11 Jun 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
213 Move /tmp/spawn.sh and /tmp/post-install to /var/tmp since that should always
214 be executable.
215
216 10 Jun 2005; Scott Myron <samyron@gentoo.org>
217 Fixed one of the FIXME's in the ClientConfiguration. There is now some
218 error checking when you call set_architecture_template.
219
220 10 Jun 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
221 moved the mkfsopts input to the partition options menu instead of the during
222 the creation process. updated GenDialog to say it supports reiserfs v3.
223
224 9 Jun 2005; Robin H. Johnson <robbat2@gentoo.org> src/GLIInstallProfile.py,

231 9 Jun 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
232 Removed start/end from XML output and added mkfsopts to partitioning info.
233 'mkfsopts' parameter is now used and support for creating xfs, jfs, and
