10
11 24 Jul 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
12 changed default values of cron/logger in IP.

26 src/GLIInstallProfile.py:
27 Fix codeman's screwup of changing the service seperator to ',' in the parser
28 without changing it in the serialization code! Also document this in a
29 comment so you find it easier. Everybody needs to make sure they update
30 their install profiles!
31
32 07 Jul 2005; Robin H. Johnson <robbat2@gentoo.org>
33 src/GLIArchitectureTemplate.py:
34 Fix casting of list to string and concat of None with string, as well as

44 src/templates/x86ArchitectureTemplate.py:
45 Refactor install_bootloader code and _install_{grub,lilo} so that 'none' for
46 bootloader works again. Also rename _install_{grub,lilo} to
47 _configure_{grub,lilo} since they don't install the loaders anymore
48 themselves.
49

74 function is called twice on the same file.
75
76 29 Jun 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
77 Missing \ in sed in _get_packages_to_emerge()

117 Add dhcp_options to the CC, CConfig, and GenDialog. More overall changes to
118 GenDialog as it gets closer to completion.
119
120 22 Jun 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
121 Modify get_eth_info() to take a full interface name (eth0 fex). float()
122 instead of int() in add_partition_device_partition() for minor (closes 96804)
123
124 21 Jun 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
125 Changed setup_network_post to check for 'interfaces[interface][0] != "dhcp"'
126 instead of 'interfaces[interface][1]' since DHCP uses that field for its
127 options. setup_network_post() writes custom DHCP options to /etc/conf.d/net.
128
129 20 Jun 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
130 Apply spawn() patch from #96644 (with minor changes). Make sure the return

143 get subarch.
144
145 16 Jun 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
146 Backend partitioning will create disklabel is none exists. Installprofile
147 defaults to "" now instead of "msdos" for disklabel type. Fix for
148 mount_local_partitions() to remember device along with minor in the
149 parts_to_mount dict (closes #96319). mount_local_partitions() cleanups and
150 add else block to log unsupported netmount types to mount_network_shares()
151
152 15 Jun 2005; Robin H. Johnson <robbat2@gentoo.org>
153 src/GLIArchitectureTemplate.py:
154 Refactor kernel_compile common stuff, fix 2.4 build process.

162 2.4 support (pull version data from /usr/src/linux/Makefile), incl.
163 'make dep' call for custom compile. build_mode support for prepare-only and
164 none types completed. custom compile function chains shell functions in
165 spawned script, to allow for catching all errors.
166
167 15 Jun 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
168 fixed up build_kernel in ArchTemplate for build_mode as well as in dialogfe
169 and GenDialog. other gendialog updates as well. kernel updates untested.
170
171 14 Jun 2005; Robin H. Johnson <robbat2@gentoo.org>
172 src/GLIInstallProfile.py:
173 Change structure of etc-portage stuff. The serialization was broken before my
174 last commit, and I am the only person that's ever used it. The new schema is
175 as follows:
176 <etc-portage>
177 <file name="package.mask"/>
178 <file name="package.unmask">
179 <entry atom="sys-kernel/openmosix-sources"/>
180 </file>
181 <file name="package.use">
182 <entry atom="sys-libs/db">
183 -java
184 </entry>
185 <entry atom="dev-libs/cyrus-sasl">
186 -ldap
187 </entry>
188 </file>
189 </etc-portage>
190
191
192 13 Jun 2005; Robin H. Johnson <robbat2@gentoo.org>
193 src/GLIInstallProfile.py:
194 Add new entry for gli-profile/kernel-build-method item. Add missing
195 serialize_etc_portage (temporary). Make serialize_make_conf always print the
196 keys in the same order.
197
198 13 Jun 2005; Robin H. Johnson <robbat2@gentoo.org>
199 src/GLIArchitectureTemplate.py:
200 Clean up commenting used by _edit_config(), and fix bug where wrong comment
201 was repeatedly appended to make.conf.
202
203 13 Jun 2005; Robin H. Johnson <robbat2@gentoo.org>
204 src/GLIArchitectureTemplate.py:
205 Put some Linux-2.6 specific code under a if statement. Store list of
206 successfully mounted swap device for using swapoff. Add proper error checking
207 to install_packages and install_filesystem_tools. Fixed namespace conflicts on
208 'file'. Clean up some redundant code (thanks to pychecker).'
209
210 13 Jun 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
211 Fix typos: get_extended() instead of get_extended_partition(). Added
212 list_mirrors() and list_stage_tarballs_from_mirror() functions to GLIUtility.
213 Change _emerge("sync") call to direct call to spawn to avoid 'emerge -k sync'
214
215 12 Jun 2005; John N. Laliberte <allanonjl@gentoo.org>
216 GLIInstallProfile.py: add missing set for dhcp_options if a tuple is passed
217 in add_network_interface.
218
219 12 Jun 2005; Robin H. Johnson <robbat2@gentoo.org> src/GLIArchitectureTemplate.py:
220 ensure PORTAGE_TMPDIR/PORT_LOGDIR/PORTDIR_OVERLAY/PKGDIR exist prior to any
221 usage - this caused a failure for stage1/stage2 previously. swapoff for swap
222 space at end of install. Mount /dev, /dev/shm, /dev/pts and /sys during
223 prepare_chroot.
224
225 11 Jun 2005; Robin H. Johnson <robbat2@gentoo.org> +src/cli/clife.py,

232 src/GLIClientController.py:
233 Add null type to network config, for cases where the interface is already up
234 and should not be touched (netboot for example).
235
236 11 Jun 2005; Robin H. Johnson <robbat2@gentoo.org>
237 src/GLIArchitectureTemplate.py:
238 pcmcia is not a variable name for a call to _add_to_runlevel, it should be a
239 string!. Try to use binary packages if available by default.
240
241 11 Jun 2005; Robin H. Johnson <robbat2@gentoo.org>
242 src/GLIArchitectureTemplate.py:
243 More error checking for _add_to_runlevel, to ensure that the init script
244 actually exists before we try to add it. set_services phase must take place
245 after the package installation, otherwise the init scripts might not exist.
246 Find the correct init script for the cron and logging daemons, and add that
247 instead of the package atom.
248
249 11 Jun 2005; Robin H. Johnson <robbat2@gentoo.org>
250 src/GLIArchitectureTemplate.py:
251 Fix up _edit_config so that it works if the file doesn't already exist. Fix
252 usage of 'file' to 'contents' for the variable name, as it shadows
253 __builtin__.file.
254
255 11 Jun 2005; Robin H. Johnson <robbat2@gentoo.org>
256 src/GLIArchitectureTemplate.py:
257 Add MTA install code, and include MTA install phase. Ensure
258 PORT_LOGDIR/PORTDIR_OVERLAY are created in _emerge if needed. Add support
259 for 'none' kernel config for build_kernel phase. Put kernel_script in
260 /var/tmp instead of /root for build_kernel phase.
261
262 11 Jun 2005; Robin H. Johnson <robbat2@gentoo.org> src/GLIInstallProfile.py:
263 Rename mta variables to match syslog/cron variables.
264
265 11 Jun 2005; Robin H. Johnson <robbat2@gentoo.org>
266 src/GLIArchitectureTemplate.py, src/templates/x86ArchitectureTemplate.py,
267 src/.cvsignore, src/fe/dialog/.cvsignore, src/fe/gtk/.cvsignore,
268 src/fe/net/client/.cvsignore, src/fe/net/server/.cvsignore,
269 src/templates/.cvsignore, src/tests/.cvsignore:
270 Refactor partition formatting again to include error checking. Allow 'none'
271 for kernel and bootloader specifications. Add .cvsignore files for .py[co].
272
273 11 Jun 2005; Robin H. Johnson <robbat2@gentoo.org>
274 src/GLIArchitectureTemplate.py, src/templates/x86ArchitectureTemplate.py:
275 Refactor _emerge to remove duplicate code. Refactor mkfs code in backend to
276 only have a single spawn call.
277

279 refixed samyron's fix of set_architecture_template.
280
281 11 Jun 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
282 Move /tmp/spawn.sh and /tmp/post-install to /var/tmp since that should always
283 be executable.
284
285 10 Jun 2005; Scott Myron <samyron@gentoo.org>
286 Fixed one of the FIXME's in the ClientConfiguration. There is now some
287 error checking when you call set_architecture_template.
288
289 10 Jun 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
290 moved the mkfsopts input to the partition options menu instead of the during
291 the creation process. updated GenDialog to say it supports reiserfs v3.
292
293 9 Jun 2005; Robin H. Johnson <robbat2@gentoo.org> src/GLIInstallProfile.py,
294 src/GLIStorageDevice.py, fe/dialog/dialogfe.py:
295 Complete support for 'mkfsopts' parameter in main system and dialogfe.
296 Add support for other partition types to dialogfe.
297 Fix all usages of int(possible_big_number) to long(possible_bit_number) to

300 9 Jun 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
301 Removed start/end from XML output and added mkfsopts to partitioning info.
302 'mkfsopts' parameter is now used and support for creating xfs, jfs, and
303 reiserfs is now in (patch from robbat2). Change '_parser' to 'self._parser'
