35 Check to see that _etc_files['make.conf'] exists in get_make_conf()
36 Only use float() in partition xml parsing code if type == "free"
37
38 28 Jun 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
39 finished almost all internationalization of GenDialog.
40 attempt at fixing rc.conf function. moved 3 generate functions out of
41 fe/gtk/RcDotConf and put them in Utility. fixed self bug.
42 added dialog.py to the fe/dialog directory so it actually gets used.

45 Roll rc_conf and make_conf into master etc_files structure in InstallProfile.
46
47 27 Jun 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
48 fix extra entry in list_mirrors()
49 beginning internationalization runthrough.
50
51 26 Jun 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>

53 fix for unused value in form in dialog.py and changed heights.
54 fix GenDialog forms.
55
56 25 Jun 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>

58 Changed _add_to_runlevel errors to logs.
59 Updated TODO list to show status of GenDialog
60 More updates to GenDialog including two checklists that probably won't work.
61 update IP to use comma-separated list instead of space separated for services.
62
63 24 Jun 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
64 Add dhcp_options to the CC, CConfig, and GenDialog. More overall changes to

69 instead of int() in add_partition_device_partition() for minor (closes 96804)
70
71 21 Jun 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
72 Changed setup_network_post to check for 'interfaces[interface][0] != "dhcp"'
73 instead of 'interfaces[interface][1]' since DHCP uses that field for its
74 options. setup_network_post() writes custom DHCP options to /etc/conf.d/net.
75
76 20 Jun 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
77 Apply spawn() patch from #96644 (with minor changes). Make sure the return

90 get subarch.
91
92 16 Jun 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
93 Backend partitioning will create disklabel is none exists. Installprofile
94 defaults to "" now instead of "msdos" for disklabel type. Fix for
95 mount_local_partitions() to remember device along with minor in the
96 parts_to_mount dict (closes #96319). mount_local_partitions() cleanups and
97 add else block to log unsupported netmount types to mount_network_shares()
98
99 15 Jun 2005; Robin H. Johnson <robbat2@gentoo.org>
100 src/GLIArchitectureTemplate.py:
101 Refactor kernel_compile common stuff, fix 2.4 build process.

106
107 15 Jun 2005; Robin H. Johnson <robbat2@gentoo.org>
108 src/GLIArchitectureTemplate.py:
109 2.4 support (pull version data from /usr/src/linux/Makefile), incl.
110 'make dep' call for custom compile. build_mode support for prepare-only and
111 none types completed. custom compile function chains shell functions in
112 spawned script, to allow for catching all errors.
113
114 15 Jun 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
115 fixed up build_kernel in ArchTemplate for build_mode as well as in dialogfe
116 and GenDialog. other gendialog updates as well. kernel updates untested.
117
118 14 Jun 2005; Robin H. Johnson <robbat2@gentoo.org>
119 src/GLIInstallProfile.py:
120 Change structure of etc-portage stuff. The serialization was broken before my
121 last commit, and I am the only person that's ever used it. The new schema is
122 as follows:
123 <etc-portage>
124 <file name="package.mask"/>
125 <file name="package.unmask">
126 <entry atom="sys-kernel/openmosix-sources"/>
127 </file>
128 <file name="package.use">
129 <entry atom="sys-libs/db">
130 -java
131 </entry>
132 <entry atom="dev-libs/cyrus-sasl">
133 -ldap
134 </entry>
135 </file>
136 </etc-portage>
137
138
139 13 Jun 2005; Robin H. Johnson <robbat2@gentoo.org>
140 src/GLIInstallProfile.py:
141 Add new entry for gli-profile/kernel-build-method item. Add missing
142 serialize_etc_portage (temporary). Make serialize_make_conf always print the
143 keys in the same order.
144
145 13 Jun 2005; Robin H. Johnson <robbat2@gentoo.org>
146 src/GLIArchitectureTemplate.py:
147 Clean up commenting used by _edit_config(), and fix bug where wrong comment
148 was repeatedly appended to make.conf.
149
150 13 Jun 2005; Robin H. Johnson <robbat2@gentoo.org>
151 src/GLIArchitectureTemplate.py:
152 Put some Linux-2.6 specific code under a if statement. Store list of
153 successfully mounted swap device for using swapoff. Add proper error checking
154 to install_packages and install_filesystem_tools. Fixed namespace conflicts on
155 'file'. Clean up some redundant code (thanks to pychecker).'
156
157 13 Jun 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
158 Fix typos: get_extended() instead of get_extended_partition(). Added
159 list_mirrors() and list_stage_tarballs_from_mirror() functions to GLIUtility.
160 Change _emerge("sync") call to direct call to spawn to avoid 'emerge -k sync'
161
162 12 Jun 2005; John N. Laliberte <allanonjl@gentoo.org>
163 GLIInstallProfile.py: add missing set for dhcp_options if a tuple is passed
164 in add_network_interface.
165
166 12 Jun 2005; Robin H. Johnson <robbat2@gentoo.org> src/GLIArchitectureTemplate.py:
167 ensure PORTAGE_TMPDIR/PORT_LOGDIR/PORTDIR_OVERLAY/PKGDIR exist prior to any
168 usage - this caused a failure for stage1/stage2 previously. swapoff for swap
169 space at end of install. Mount /dev, /dev/shm, /dev/pts and /sys during
170 prepare_chroot.
171
172 11 Jun 2005; Robin H. Johnson <robbat2@gentoo.org> +src/cli/clife.py,
173 +src/cli/README, +src/fe/installer-cli, +src/fe/installer-dialog,
174 +src/fe/installer-gtk:
175 Add new automated CLI frontend. Add scripts that are the intended means to
176 use each frontend.
177
178 11 Jun 2005; Robin H. Johnson <robbat2@gentoo.org>
179 src/GLIClientController.py:
180 Add null type to network config, for cases where the interface is already up
181 and should not be touched (netboot for example).
182
183 11 Jun 2005; Robin H. Johnson <robbat2@gentoo.org>
184 src/GLIArchitectureTemplate.py:
185 pcmcia is not a variable name for a call to _add_to_runlevel, it should be a
186 string!. Try to use binary packages if available by default.
187
188 11 Jun 2005; Robin H. Johnson <robbat2@gentoo.org>
189 src/GLIArchitectureTemplate.py:
190 More error checking for _add_to_runlevel, to ensure that the init script
191 actually exists before we try to add it. set_services phase must take place
192 after the package installation, otherwise the init scripts might not exist.
193 Find the correct init script for the cron and logging daemons, and add that
194 instead of the package atom.
195
196 11 Jun 2005; Robin H. Johnson <robbat2@gentoo.org>
197 src/GLIArchitectureTemplate.py:
198 Fix up _edit_config so that it works if the file doesn't already exist. Fix
199 usage of 'file' to 'contents' for the variable name, as it shadows
200 __builtin__.file.
201
202 11 Jun 2005; Robin H. Johnson <robbat2@gentoo.org>
203 src/GLIArchitectureTemplate.py:
204 Add MTA install code, and include MTA install phase. Ensure
205 PORT_LOGDIR/PORTDIR_OVERLAY are created in _emerge if needed. Add support
206 for 'none' kernel config for build_kernel phase. Put kernel_script in
207 /var/tmp instead of /root for build_kernel phase.
208
209 11 Jun 2005; Robin H. Johnson <robbat2@gentoo.org> src/GLIInstallProfile.py:
210 Rename mta variables to match syslog/cron variables.
211
212 11 Jun 2005; Robin H. Johnson <robbat2@gentoo.org>
213 src/GLIArchitectureTemplate.py, src/templates/x86ArchitectureTemplate.py,
214 src/.cvsignore, src/fe/dialog/.cvsignore, src/fe/gtk/.cvsignore,
215 src/fe/net/client/.cvsignore, src/fe/net/server/.cvsignore,
216 src/templates/.cvsignore, src/tests/.cvsignore:
217 Refactor partition formatting again to include error checking. Allow 'none'
218 for kernel and bootloader specifications. Add .cvsignore files for .py[co].
219
220 11 Jun 2005; Robin H. Johnson <robbat2@gentoo.org>
221 src/GLIArchitectureTemplate.py, src/templates/x86ArchitectureTemplate.py:

226 refixed samyron's fix of set_architecture_template.
227
228 11 Jun 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
229 Move /tmp/spawn.sh and /tmp/post-install to /var/tmp since that should always
230 be executable.
231
232 10 Jun 2005; Scott Myron <samyron@gentoo.org>
233 Fixed one of the FIXME's in the ClientConfiguration. There is now some
234 error checking when you call set_architecture_template.
235
236 10 Jun 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
237 moved the mkfsopts input to the partition options menu instead of the during
238 the creation process. updated GenDialog to say it supports reiserfs v3.
239
240 9 Jun 2005; Robin H. Johnson <robbat2@gentoo.org> src/GLIInstallProfile.py,

247 9 Jun 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
248 Removed start/end from XML output and added mkfsopts to partitioning info.
249 'mkfsopts' parameter is now used and support for creating xfs, jfs, and
