10 07 Jul 2005; Robin H. Johnson <robbat2@gentoo.org>
11 src/GLIInstallProfile.py:
12 Fix codeman's screwup of changing the service seperator to ',' in the parser
13 without changing it in the serialization code! Also document this in a
14 comment so you find it easier. Everybody needs to make sure they update
15 their install profiles!
16
17 07 Jul 2005; Robin H. Johnson <robbat2@gentoo.org>
18 src/GLIArchitectureTemplate.py:
19 Fix casting of list to string and concat of None with string, as well as
20 commented prototype of checking that mounting actually worked (found a case
21 where mount can return success, but the mount won't be done).
22
23 07 Jul 2005; Robin H. Johnson <robbat2@gentoo.org>
24 src/templates/x86ArchitectureTemplate.py:
25 Remove TEMP UGLY HACK of time.sleep(5), and replace it with a while loop
26 checking for the device, and sleeping 1 second each time.
27
28 07 Jul 2005; Robin H. Johnson <robbat2@gentoo.org>
29 src/templates/x86ArchitectureTemplate.py:
30 Refactor install_bootloader code and _install_{grub,lilo} so that 'none' for
31 bootloader works again. Also rename _install_{grub,lilo} to
32 _configure_{grub,lilo} since they don't install the loaders anymore
33 themselves.
34

56 Remove separate install step configure_rc_conf() since it's handled by
57 update_config_files()
58 Make a copy of newvalues in _edit_config() so quotes aren't added when the
59 function is called twice on the same file.
60
61 29 Jun 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
62 Missing \ in sed in _get_packages_to_emerge()
63 Removed explicit emerging of hotplug and no longer add it to the runlevel.

83 Roll rc_conf and make_conf into master etc_files structure in InstallProfile.
84
85 27 Jun 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
86 fix extra entry in list_mirrors()
87 beginning internationalization runthrough.
88
89 26 Jun 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
90 added dialog.py to /src temporarily until it gets accepted upstream.
91 fix for unused value in form in dialog.py and changed heights.
92 fix GenDialog forms.
93
94 25 Jun 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>

97 Updated TODO list to show status of GenDialog
98 More updates to GenDialog including two checklists that probably won't work.
99 update IP to use comma-separated list instead of space separated for services.
100
101 24 Jun 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
102 Add dhcp_options to the CC, CConfig, and GenDialog. More overall changes to
103 GenDialog as it gets closer to completion.
104
105 22 Jun 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
106 Modify get_eth_info() to take a full interface name (eth0 fex). float()
107 instead of int() in add_partition_device_partition() for minor (closes 96804)
108
109 21 Jun 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
110 Changed setup_network_post to check for 'interfaces[interface][0] != "dhcp"'
111 instead of 'interfaces[interface][1]' since DHCP uses that field for its
112 options. setup_network_post() writes custom DHCP options to /etc/conf.d/net.
113
114 20 Jun 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
115 Apply spawn() patch from #96644 (with minor changes). Make sure the return
116 value from all spawn() calls is checked with GLIUtility.exitsuccess(). Fix
117 small error with <pipe>.close() returning None. Fix space vs. tab issue.

128 get subarch.
129
130 16 Jun 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
131 Backend partitioning will create disklabel is none exists. Installprofile
132 defaults to "" now instead of "msdos" for disklabel type. Fix for
133 mount_local_partitions() to remember device along with minor in the
134 parts_to_mount dict (closes #96319). mount_local_partitions() cleanups and
135 add else block to log unsupported netmount types to mount_network_shares()
136
137 15 Jun 2005; Robin H. Johnson <robbat2@gentoo.org>
138 src/GLIArchitectureTemplate.py:
139 Refactor kernel_compile common stuff, fix 2.4 build process.

146 src/GLIArchitectureTemplate.py:
147 2.4 support (pull version data from /usr/src/linux/Makefile), incl.
148 'make dep' call for custom compile. build_mode support for prepare-only and
149 none types completed. custom compile function chains shell functions in
150 spawned script, to allow for catching all errors.
151
152 15 Jun 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
153 fixed up build_kernel in ArchTemplate for build_mode as well as in dialogfe
154 and GenDialog. other gendialog updates as well. kernel updates untested.
155
156 14 Jun 2005; Robin H. Johnson <robbat2@gentoo.org>
157 src/GLIInstallProfile.py:
158 Change structure of etc-portage stuff. The serialization was broken before my
159 last commit, and I am the only person that's ever used it. The new schema is
160 as follows:
161 <etc-portage>
162 <file name="package.mask"/>
163 <file name="package.unmask">
164 <entry atom="sys-kernel/openmosix-sources"/>
165 </file>
166 <file name="package.use">
167 <entry atom="sys-libs/db">
168 -java
169 </entry>
170 <entry atom="dev-libs/cyrus-sasl">
171 -ldap
172 </entry>
173 </file>
174 </etc-portage>
175
176
177 13 Jun 2005; Robin H. Johnson <robbat2@gentoo.org>
178 src/GLIInstallProfile.py:
179 Add new entry for gli-profile/kernel-build-method item. Add missing
180 serialize_etc_portage (temporary). Make serialize_make_conf always print the
181 keys in the same order.
182
183 13 Jun 2005; Robin H. Johnson <robbat2@gentoo.org>
184 src/GLIArchitectureTemplate.py:
185 Clean up commenting used by _edit_config(), and fix bug where wrong comment
186 was repeatedly appended to make.conf.
187
188 13 Jun 2005; Robin H. Johnson <robbat2@gentoo.org>
189 src/GLIArchitectureTemplate.py:
190 Put some Linux-2.6 specific code under a if statement. Store list of
191 successfully mounted swap device for using swapoff. Add proper error checking
192 to install_packages and install_filesystem_tools. Fixed namespace conflicts on
193 'file'. Clean up some redundant code (thanks to pychecker).'
194
195 13 Jun 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
196 Fix typos: get_extended() instead of get_extended_partition(). Added
197 list_mirrors() and list_stage_tarballs_from_mirror() functions to GLIUtility.
198 Change _emerge("sync") call to direct call to spawn to avoid 'emerge -k sync'
199
200 12 Jun 2005; John N. Laliberte <allanonjl@gentoo.org>
201 GLIInstallProfile.py: add missing set for dhcp_options if a tuple is passed
202 in add_network_interface.
203
204 12 Jun 2005; Robin H. Johnson <robbat2@gentoo.org> src/GLIArchitectureTemplate.py:
205 ensure PORTAGE_TMPDIR/PORT_LOGDIR/PORTDIR_OVERLAY/PKGDIR exist prior to any
206 usage - this caused a failure for stage1/stage2 previously. swapoff for swap
207 space at end of install. Mount /dev, /dev/shm, /dev/pts and /sys during
208 prepare_chroot.
209
210 11 Jun 2005; Robin H. Johnson <robbat2@gentoo.org> +src/cli/clife.py,
211 +src/cli/README, +src/fe/installer-cli, +src/fe/installer-dialog,
212 +src/fe/installer-gtk:
213 Add new automated CLI frontend. Add scripts that are the intended means to
214 use each frontend.
215
216 11 Jun 2005; Robin H. Johnson <robbat2@gentoo.org>
217 src/GLIClientController.py:
218 Add null type to network config, for cases where the interface is already up
219 and should not be touched (netboot for example).
220
221 11 Jun 2005; Robin H. Johnson <robbat2@gentoo.org>
222 src/GLIArchitectureTemplate.py:
223 pcmcia is not a variable name for a call to _add_to_runlevel, it should be a
224 string!. Try to use binary packages if available by default.
225
226 11 Jun 2005; Robin H. Johnson <robbat2@gentoo.org>
227 src/GLIArchitectureTemplate.py:
228 More error checking for _add_to_runlevel, to ensure that the init script
229 actually exists before we try to add it. set_services phase must take place
230 after the package installation, otherwise the init scripts might not exist.
231 Find the correct init script for the cron and logging daemons, and add that
232 instead of the package atom.
233
234 11 Jun 2005; Robin H. Johnson <robbat2@gentoo.org>
235 src/GLIArchitectureTemplate.py:
236 Fix up _edit_config so that it works if the file doesn't already exist. Fix
237 usage of 'file' to 'contents' for the variable name, as it shadows
238 __builtin__.file.
239
240 11 Jun 2005; Robin H. Johnson <robbat2@gentoo.org>
241 src/GLIArchitectureTemplate.py:
242 Add MTA install code, and include MTA install phase. Ensure
243 PORT_LOGDIR/PORTDIR_OVERLAY are created in _emerge if needed. Add support
244 for 'none' kernel config for build_kernel phase. Put kernel_script in
245 /var/tmp instead of /root for build_kernel phase.
246
247 11 Jun 2005; Robin H. Johnson <robbat2@gentoo.org> src/GLIInstallProfile.py:
248 Rename mta variables to match syslog/cron variables.
249
250 11 Jun 2005; Robin H. Johnson <robbat2@gentoo.org>
251 src/GLIArchitectureTemplate.py, src/templates/x86ArchitectureTemplate.py,
252 src/.cvsignore, src/fe/dialog/.cvsignore, src/fe/gtk/.cvsignore,
253 src/fe/net/client/.cvsignore, src/fe/net/server/.cvsignore,
254 src/templates/.cvsignore, src/tests/.cvsignore:
255 Refactor partition formatting again to include error checking. Allow 'none'
256 for kernel and bootloader specifications. Add .cvsignore files for .py[co].
257
258 11 Jun 2005; Robin H. Johnson <robbat2@gentoo.org>
259 src/GLIArchitectureTemplate.py, src/templates/x86ArchitectureTemplate.py:
260 Refactor _emerge to remove duplicate code. Refactor mkfs code in backend to
261 only have a single spawn call.
262
263 11 Jun 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
264 refixed samyron's fix of set_architecture_template.
265
266 11 Jun 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
267 Move /tmp/spawn.sh and /tmp/post-install to /var/tmp since that should always
268 be executable.
269
270 10 Jun 2005; Scott Myron <samyron@gentoo.org>
271 Fixed one of the FIXME's in the ClientConfiguration. There is now some
272 error checking when you call set_architecture_template.
273
274 10 Jun 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
275 moved the mkfsopts input to the partition options menu instead of the during
276 the creation process. updated GenDialog to say it supports reiserfs v3.
277
278 9 Jun 2005; Robin H. Johnson <robbat2@gentoo.org> src/GLIInstallProfile.py,
279 src/GLIStorageDevice.py, fe/dialog/dialogfe.py:
280 Complete support for 'mkfsopts' parameter in main system and dialogfe.
281 Add support for other partition types to dialogfe.
282 Fix all usages of int(possible_big_number) to long(possible_bit_number) to

284
285 9 Jun 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
286 Removed start/end from XML output and added mkfsopts to partitioning info.
287 'mkfsopts' parameter is now used and support for creating xfs, jfs, and
288 reiserfs is now in (patch from robbat2). Change '_parser' to 'self._parser'
289 in GLIClientConfiguration. Change from .1 and .9 to constants for
