80
81 21 Jun 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
82 Changed setup_network_post to check for 'interfaces[interface][0] != "dhcp"'
83 instead of 'interfaces[interface][1]' since DHCP uses that field for its

85
86 20 Jun 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
87 Apply spawn() patch from #96644 (with minor changes). Make sure the return

100 get subarch.
101
102 16 Jun 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
103 Backend partitioning will create disklabel is none exists. Installprofile
104 defaults to "" now instead of "msdos" for disklabel type. Fix for
105 mount_local_partitions() to remember device along with minor in the
106 parts_to_mount dict (closes #96319). mount_local_partitions() cleanups and
107 add else block to log unsupported netmount types to mount_network_shares()
108
109 15 Jun 2005; Robin H. Johnson <robbat2@gentoo.org>
110 src/GLIArchitectureTemplate.py:
111 Refactor kernel_compile common stuff, fix 2.4 build process.

119 2.4 support (pull version data from /usr/src/linux/Makefile), incl.
120 'make dep' call for custom compile. build_mode support for prepare-only and
121 none types completed. custom compile function chains shell functions in
122 spawned script, to allow for catching all errors.
123
124 15 Jun 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
125 fixed up build_kernel in ArchTemplate for build_mode as well as in dialogfe
126 and GenDialog. other gendialog updates as well. kernel updates untested.
127
128 14 Jun 2005; Robin H. Johnson <robbat2@gentoo.org>
129 src/GLIInstallProfile.py:
130 Change structure of etc-portage stuff. The serialization was broken before my
131 last commit, and I am the only person that's ever used it. The new schema is
132 as follows:
133 <etc-portage>
134 <file name="package.mask"/>
135 <file name="package.unmask">
136 <entry atom="sys-kernel/openmosix-sources"/>
137 </file>
138 <file name="package.use">
139 <entry atom="sys-libs/db">
140 -java
141 </entry>
142 <entry atom="dev-libs/cyrus-sasl">
143 -ldap
144 </entry>
145 </file>
146 </etc-portage>
147
148
149 13 Jun 2005; Robin H. Johnson <robbat2@gentoo.org>
150 src/GLIInstallProfile.py:
151 Add new entry for gli-profile/kernel-build-method item. Add missing
152 serialize_etc_portage (temporary). Make serialize_make_conf always print the
153 keys in the same order.
154
155 13 Jun 2005; Robin H. Johnson <robbat2@gentoo.org>
156 src/GLIArchitectureTemplate.py:
157 Clean up commenting used by _edit_config(), and fix bug where wrong comment
158 was repeatedly appended to make.conf.
159
160 13 Jun 2005; Robin H. Johnson <robbat2@gentoo.org>
161 src/GLIArchitectureTemplate.py:
162 Put some Linux-2.6 specific code under a if statement. Store list of
163 successfully mounted swap device for using swapoff. Add proper error checking
164 to install_packages and install_filesystem_tools. Fixed namespace conflicts on
165 'file'. Clean up some redundant code (thanks to pychecker).'
166
167 13 Jun 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
168 Fix typos: get_extended() instead of get_extended_partition(). Added
169 list_mirrors() and list_stage_tarballs_from_mirror() functions to GLIUtility.
170 Change _emerge("sync") call to direct call to spawn to avoid 'emerge -k sync'
171
172 12 Jun 2005; John N. Laliberte <allanonjl@gentoo.org>
173 GLIInstallProfile.py: add missing set for dhcp_options if a tuple is passed
174 in add_network_interface.
175
176 12 Jun 2005; Robin H. Johnson <robbat2@gentoo.org> src/GLIArchitectureTemplate.py:
177 ensure PORTAGE_TMPDIR/PORT_LOGDIR/PORTDIR_OVERLAY/PKGDIR exist prior to any
178 usage - this caused a failure for stage1/stage2 previously. swapoff for swap
179 space at end of install. Mount /dev, /dev/shm, /dev/pts and /sys during
180 prepare_chroot.
181
182 11 Jun 2005; Robin H. Johnson <robbat2@gentoo.org> +src/cli/clife.py,
183 +src/cli/README, +src/fe/installer-cli, +src/fe/installer-dialog,

185 Add new automated CLI frontend. Add scripts that are the intended means to
186 use each frontend.
187
188 11 Jun 2005; Robin H. Johnson <robbat2@gentoo.org>

190 Add null type to network config, for cases where the interface is already up
191 and should not be touched (netboot for example).
192
193 11 Jun 2005; Robin H. Johnson <robbat2@gentoo.org>
194 src/GLIArchitectureTemplate.py:
195 pcmcia is not a variable name for a call to _add_to_runlevel, it should be a
196 string!. Try to use binary packages if available by default.
197
198 11 Jun 2005; Robin H. Johnson <robbat2@gentoo.org>
199 src/GLIArchitectureTemplate.py:
200 More error checking for _add_to_runlevel, to ensure that the init script
201 actually exists before we try to add it. set_services phase must take place
202 after the package installation, otherwise the init scripts might not exist.
203 Find the correct init script for the cron and logging daemons, and add that
204 instead of the package atom.
205
206 11 Jun 2005; Robin H. Johnson <robbat2@gentoo.org>
207 src/GLIArchitectureTemplate.py:
208 Fix up _edit_config so that it works if the file doesn't already exist. Fix
209 usage of 'file' to 'contents' for the variable name, as it shadows
210 __builtin__.file.
211
212 11 Jun 2005; Robin H. Johnson <robbat2@gentoo.org>
213 src/GLIArchitectureTemplate.py:
214 Add MTA install code, and include MTA install phase. Ensure
215 PORT_LOGDIR/PORTDIR_OVERLAY are created in _emerge if needed. Add support
216 for 'none' kernel config for build_kernel phase. Put kernel_script in
217 /var/tmp instead of /root for build_kernel phase.
218

220 Rename mta variables to match syslog/cron variables.
221
222 11 Jun 2005; Robin H. Johnson <robbat2@gentoo.org>
223 src/GLIArchitectureTemplate.py, src/templates/x86ArchitectureTemplate.py,
224 src/.cvsignore, src/fe/dialog/.cvsignore, src/fe/gtk/.cvsignore,
225 src/fe/net/client/.cvsignore, src/fe/net/server/.cvsignore,
226 src/templates/.cvsignore, src/tests/.cvsignore:
227 Refactor partition formatting again to include error checking. Allow 'none'
228 for kernel and bootloader specifications. Add .cvsignore files for .py[co].
229
230 11 Jun 2005; Robin H. Johnson <robbat2@gentoo.org>
231 src/GLIArchitectureTemplate.py, src/templates/x86ArchitectureTemplate.py:
232 Refactor _emerge to remove duplicate code. Refactor mkfs code in backend to
233 only have a single spawn call.
234
235 11 Jun 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
236 refixed samyron's fix of set_architecture_template.
237
238 11 Jun 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
239 Move /tmp/spawn.sh and /tmp/post-install to /var/tmp since that should always
240 be executable.
241
242 10 Jun 2005; Scott Myron <samyron@gentoo.org>
243 Fixed one of the FIXME's in the ClientConfiguration. There is now some
244 error checking when you call set_architecture_template.
245
246 10 Jun 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
247 moved the mkfsopts input to the partition options menu instead of the during
248 the creation process. updated GenDialog to say it supports reiserfs v3.
249
