45 finished almost all internationalization of GenDialog.
46 attempt at fixing rc.conf function. moved 3 generate functions out of
47 fe/gtk/RcDotConf and put them in Utility. fixed self bug.

75 instead of int() in add_partition_device_partition() for minor (closes 96804)
76
77 21 Jun 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
78 Changed setup_network_post to check for 'interfaces[interface][0] != "dhcp"'
79 instead of 'interfaces[interface][1]' since DHCP uses that field for its
80 options. setup_network_post() writes custom DHCP options to /etc/conf.d/net.
81
82 20 Jun 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
83 Apply spawn() patch from #96644 (with minor changes). Make sure the return

96 get subarch.
97
98 16 Jun 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
99 Backend partitioning will create disklabel is none exists. Installprofile
100 defaults to "" now instead of "msdos" for disklabel type. Fix for
101 mount_local_partitions() to remember device along with minor in the
102 parts_to_mount dict (closes #96319). mount_local_partitions() cleanups and
103 add else block to log unsupported netmount types to mount_network_shares()
104
105 15 Jun 2005; Robin H. Johnson <robbat2@gentoo.org>
106 src/GLIArchitectureTemplate.py:
107 Refactor kernel_compile common stuff, fix 2.4 build process.

115 2.4 support (pull version data from /usr/src/linux/Makefile), incl.
116 'make dep' call for custom compile. build_mode support for prepare-only and
117 none types completed. custom compile function chains shell functions in
118 spawned script, to allow for catching all errors.
119
120 15 Jun 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
121 fixed up build_kernel in ArchTemplate for build_mode as well as in dialogfe
122 and GenDialog. other gendialog updates as well. kernel updates untested.
123
124 14 Jun 2005; Robin H. Johnson <robbat2@gentoo.org>
125 src/GLIInstallProfile.py:
126 Change structure of etc-portage stuff. The serialization was broken before my
127 last commit, and I am the only person that's ever used it. The new schema is
128 as follows:
129 <etc-portage>
130 <file name="package.mask"/>
131 <file name="package.unmask">
132 <entry atom="sys-kernel/openmosix-sources"/>
133 </file>
134 <file name="package.use">
135 <entry atom="sys-libs/db">
136 -java
137 </entry>
138 <entry atom="dev-libs/cyrus-sasl">
139 -ldap
140 </entry>
141 </file>
142 </etc-portage>
143
144
145 13 Jun 2005; Robin H. Johnson <robbat2@gentoo.org>
146 src/GLIInstallProfile.py:
147 Add new entry for gli-profile/kernel-build-method item. Add missing
148 serialize_etc_portage (temporary). Make serialize_make_conf always print the
149 keys in the same order.
150
151 13 Jun 2005; Robin H. Johnson <robbat2@gentoo.org>
152 src/GLIArchitectureTemplate.py:
153 Clean up commenting used by _edit_config(), and fix bug where wrong comment
154 was repeatedly appended to make.conf.
155
156 13 Jun 2005; Robin H. Johnson <robbat2@gentoo.org>
157 src/GLIArchitectureTemplate.py:
158 Put some Linux-2.6 specific code under a if statement. Store list of
159 successfully mounted swap device for using swapoff. Add proper error checking
160 to install_packages and install_filesystem_tools. Fixed namespace conflicts on
161 'file'. Clean up some redundant code (thanks to pychecker).'
162
163 13 Jun 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
164 Fix typos: get_extended() instead of get_extended_partition(). Added
165 list_mirrors() and list_stage_tarballs_from_mirror() functions to GLIUtility.
166 Change _emerge("sync") call to direct call to spawn to avoid 'emerge -k sync'
167
168 12 Jun 2005; John N. Laliberte <allanonjl@gentoo.org>
169 GLIInstallProfile.py: add missing set for dhcp_options if a tuple is passed
170 in add_network_interface.
171
172 12 Jun 2005; Robin H. Johnson <robbat2@gentoo.org> src/GLIArchitectureTemplate.py:
173 ensure PORTAGE_TMPDIR/PORT_LOGDIR/PORTDIR_OVERLAY/PKGDIR exist prior to any
174 usage - this caused a failure for stage1/stage2 previously. swapoff for swap
175 space at end of install. Mount /dev, /dev/shm, /dev/pts and /sys during
176 prepare_chroot.
177
178 11 Jun 2005; Robin H. Johnson <robbat2@gentoo.org> +src/cli/clife.py,
179 +src/cli/README, +src/fe/installer-cli, +src/fe/installer-dialog,

181 Add new automated CLI frontend. Add scripts that are the intended means to
182 use each frontend.
183
184 11 Jun 2005; Robin H. Johnson <robbat2@gentoo.org>
185 src/GLIClientController.py:
186 Add null type to network config, for cases where the interface is already up
187 and should not be touched (netboot for example).
188
189 11 Jun 2005; Robin H. Johnson <robbat2@gentoo.org>
190 src/GLIArchitectureTemplate.py:
191 pcmcia is not a variable name for a call to _add_to_runlevel, it should be a
192 string!. Try to use binary packages if available by default.
193
194 11 Jun 2005; Robin H. Johnson <robbat2@gentoo.org>
195 src/GLIArchitectureTemplate.py:
196 More error checking for _add_to_runlevel, to ensure that the init script
197 actually exists before we try to add it. set_services phase must take place
198 after the package installation, otherwise the init scripts might not exist.
199 Find the correct init script for the cron and logging daemons, and add that
200 instead of the package atom.
201
202 11 Jun 2005; Robin H. Johnson <robbat2@gentoo.org>
203 src/GLIArchitectureTemplate.py:
204 Fix up _edit_config so that it works if the file doesn't already exist. Fix
205 usage of 'file' to 'contents' for the variable name, as it shadows
206 __builtin__.file.
207
208 11 Jun 2005; Robin H. Johnson <robbat2@gentoo.org>
209 src/GLIArchitectureTemplate.py:
210 Add MTA install code, and include MTA install phase. Ensure
211 PORT_LOGDIR/PORTDIR_OVERLAY are created in _emerge if needed. Add support
212 for 'none' kernel config for build_kernel phase. Put kernel_script in
213 /var/tmp instead of /root for build_kernel phase.
214
215 11 Jun 2005; Robin H. Johnson <robbat2@gentoo.org> src/GLIInstallProfile.py:
216 Rename mta variables to match syslog/cron variables.
217
218 11 Jun 2005; Robin H. Johnson <robbat2@gentoo.org>
219 src/GLIArchitectureTemplate.py, src/templates/x86ArchitectureTemplate.py,
220 src/.cvsignore, src/fe/dialog/.cvsignore, src/fe/gtk/.cvsignore,
221 src/fe/net/client/.cvsignore, src/fe/net/server/.cvsignore,
222 src/templates/.cvsignore, src/tests/.cvsignore:
223 Refactor partition formatting again to include error checking. Allow 'none'
224 for kernel and bootloader specifications. Add .cvsignore files for .py[co].
225
226 11 Jun 2005; Robin H. Johnson <robbat2@gentoo.org>
227 src/GLIArchitectureTemplate.py, src/templates/x86ArchitectureTemplate.py:
228 Refactor _emerge to remove duplicate code. Refactor mkfs code in backend to
229 only have a single spawn call.
230
231 11 Jun 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
232 refixed samyron's fix of set_architecture_template.
233
234 11 Jun 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
235 Move /tmp/spawn.sh and /tmp/post-install to /var/tmp since that should always
236 be executable.
237
238 10 Jun 2005; Scott Myron <samyron@gentoo.org>
239 Fixed one of the FIXME's in the ClientConfiguration. There is now some
240 error checking when you call set_architecture_template.
241
242 10 Jun 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
243 moved the mkfsopts input to the partition options menu instead of the during
244 the creation process. updated GenDialog to say it supports reiserfs v3.
245
246 9 Jun 2005; Robin H. Johnson <robbat2@gentoo.org> src/GLIInstallProfile.py,

253 9 Jun 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
254 Removed start/end from XML output and added mkfsopts to partitioning info.
255 'mkfsopts' parameter is now used and support for creating xfs, jfs, and
256 reiserfs is now in (patch from robbat2). Change '_parser' to 'self._parser'
257 in GLIClientConfiguration. Change from .1 and .9 to constants for
258 partitioning. Fix free space overwriting bug. Remove a few unused functions
