14 src/GLIInstallProfile.py:
15 Fix codeman's screwup of changing the service seperator to ',' in the parser
16 without changing it in the serialization code! Also document this in a
17 comment so you find it easier. Everybody needs to make sure they update
18 their install profiles!
19
20 07 Jul 2005; Robin H. Johnson <robbat2@gentoo.org>
21 src/GLIArchitectureTemplate.py:
22 Fix casting of list to string and concat of None with string, as well as
23 commented prototype of checking that mounting actually worked (found a case
24 where mount can return success, but the mount won't be done).

31 07 Jul 2005; Robin H. Johnson <robbat2@gentoo.org>
32 src/templates/x86ArchitectureTemplate.py:
33 Refactor install_bootloader code and _install_{grub,lilo} so that 'none' for
34 bootloader works again. Also rename _install_{grub,lilo} to
35 _configure_{grub,lilo} since they don't install the loaders anymore
36 themselves.
37

62 function is called twice on the same file.
63
64 29 Jun 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
65 Missing \ in sed in _get_packages_to_emerge()

87
88 27 Jun 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>

103
104 24 Jun 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
105 Add dhcp_options to the CC, CConfig, and GenDialog. More overall changes to
106 GenDialog as it gets closer to completion.
107
108 22 Jun 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
109 Modify get_eth_info() to take a full interface name (eth0 fex). float()
110 instead of int() in add_partition_device_partition() for minor (closes 96804)
111
112 21 Jun 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
113 Changed setup_network_post to check for 'interfaces[interface][0] != "dhcp"'
114 instead of 'interfaces[interface][1]' since DHCP uses that field for its
115 options. setup_network_post() writes custom DHCP options to /etc/conf.d/net.
116
117 20 Jun 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
118 Apply spawn() patch from #96644 (with minor changes). Make sure the return
119 value from all spawn() calls is checked with GLIUtility.exitsuccess(). Fix
120 small error with <pipe>.close() returning None. Fix space vs. tab issue.

131 get subarch.
132
133 16 Jun 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
134 Backend partitioning will create disklabel is none exists. Installprofile
135 defaults to "" now instead of "msdos" for disklabel type. Fix for
136 mount_local_partitions() to remember device along with minor in the
137 parts_to_mount dict (closes #96319). mount_local_partitions() cleanups and
138 add else block to log unsupported netmount types to mount_network_shares()
139
140 15 Jun 2005; Robin H. Johnson <robbat2@gentoo.org>
141 src/GLIArchitectureTemplate.py:
142 Refactor kernel_compile common stuff, fix 2.4 build process.

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

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