41 src/GLIInstallProfile.py:
42 Fix codeman's screwup of changing the service seperator to ',' in the parser
43 without changing it in the serialization code! Also document this in a
44 comment so you find it easier. Everybody needs to make sure they update
45 their install profiles!

60 Refactor install_bootloader code and _install_{grub,lilo} so that 'none' for

63 themselves.
64

89 function is called twice on the same file.
90
91 29 Jun 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
92 Missing \ in sed in _get_packages_to_emerge()

132 Add dhcp_options to the CC, CConfig, and GenDialog. More overall changes to
133 GenDialog as it gets closer to completion.
134
135 22 Jun 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
136 Modify get_eth_info() to take a full interface name (eth0 fex). float()
137 instead of int() in add_partition_device_partition() for minor (closes 96804)
138
139 21 Jun 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
140 Changed setup_network_post to check for 'interfaces[interface][0] != "dhcp"'
141 instead of 'interfaces[interface][1]' since DHCP uses that field for its
142 options. setup_network_post() writes custom DHCP options to /etc/conf.d/net.
143
144 20 Jun 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
145 Apply spawn() patch from #96644 (with minor changes). Make sure the return

158 get subarch.
159
160 16 Jun 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
161 Backend partitioning will create disklabel is none exists. Installprofile
162 defaults to "" now instead of "msdos" for disklabel type. Fix for
163 mount_local_partitions() to remember device along with minor in the
164 parts_to_mount dict (closes #96319). mount_local_partitions() cleanups and
165 add else block to log unsupported netmount types to mount_network_shares()
166
167 15 Jun 2005; Robin H. Johnson <robbat2@gentoo.org>

177 2.4 support (pull version data from /usr/src/linux/Makefile), incl.
178 'make dep' call for custom compile. build_mode support for prepare-only and
179 none types completed. custom compile function chains shell functions in
180 spawned script, to allow for catching all errors.
181
182 15 Jun 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
183 fixed up build_kernel in ArchTemplate for build_mode as well as in dialogfe
184 and GenDialog. other gendialog updates as well. kernel updates untested.
185
186 14 Jun 2005; Robin H. Johnson <robbat2@gentoo.org>
187 src/GLIInstallProfile.py:
188 Change structure of etc-portage stuff. The serialization was broken before my
189 last commit, and I am the only person that's ever used it. The new schema is
190 as follows:
191 <etc-portage>
192 <file name="package.mask"/>
193 <file name="package.unmask">
194 <entry atom="sys-kernel/openmosix-sources"/>
195 </file>
196 <file name="package.use">
197 <entry atom="sys-libs/db">
198 -java
199 </entry>
200 <entry atom="dev-libs/cyrus-sasl">
201 -ldap
202 </entry>
203 </file>
204 </etc-portage>
205
206
207 13 Jun 2005; Robin H. Johnson <robbat2@gentoo.org>
208 src/GLIInstallProfile.py:
209 Add new entry for gli-profile/kernel-build-method item. Add missing
210 serialize_etc_portage (temporary). Make serialize_make_conf always print the
211 keys in the same order.
212
213 13 Jun 2005; Robin H. Johnson <robbat2@gentoo.org>
214 src/GLIArchitectureTemplate.py:
215 Clean up commenting used by _edit_config(), and fix bug where wrong comment
216 was repeatedly appended to make.conf.
217
218 13 Jun 2005; Robin H. Johnson <robbat2@gentoo.org>
219 src/GLIArchitectureTemplate.py:
220 Put some Linux-2.6 specific code under a if statement. Store list of
221 successfully mounted swap device for using swapoff. Add proper error checking
222 to install_packages and install_filesystem_tools. Fixed namespace conflicts on
223 'file'. Clean up some redundant code (thanks to pychecker).'
224
225 13 Jun 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
226 Fix typos: get_extended() instead of get_extended_partition(). Added
227 list_mirrors() and list_stage_tarballs_from_mirror() functions to GLIUtility.
228 Change _emerge("sync") call to direct call to spawn to avoid 'emerge -k sync'
229
230 12 Jun 2005; John N. Laliberte <allanonjl@gentoo.org>
231 GLIInstallProfile.py: add missing set for dhcp_options if a tuple is passed
232 in add_network_interface.
233
234 12 Jun 2005; Robin H. Johnson <robbat2@gentoo.org> src/GLIArchitectureTemplate.py:
235 ensure PORTAGE_TMPDIR/PORT_LOGDIR/PORTDIR_OVERLAY/PKGDIR exist prior to any
236 usage - this caused a failure for stage1/stage2 previously. swapoff for swap
237 space at end of install. Mount /dev, /dev/shm, /dev/pts and /sys during
238 prepare_chroot.
239
240 11 Jun 2005; Robin H. Johnson <robbat2@gentoo.org> +src/cli/clife.py,
241 +src/cli/README, +src/fe/installer-cli, +src/fe/installer-dialog,

244 use each frontend.
245
246 11 Jun 2005; Robin H. Johnson <robbat2@gentoo.org>
247 src/GLIClientController.py:
248 Add null type to network config, for cases where the interface is already up
249 and should not be touched (netboot for example).
250
251 11 Jun 2005; Robin H. Johnson <robbat2@gentoo.org>
252 src/GLIArchitectureTemplate.py:
253 pcmcia is not a variable name for a call to _add_to_runlevel, it should be a
254 string!. Try to use binary packages if available by default.
255
256 11 Jun 2005; Robin H. Johnson <robbat2@gentoo.org>
257 src/GLIArchitectureTemplate.py:
258 More error checking for _add_to_runlevel, to ensure that the init script
259 actually exists before we try to add it. set_services phase must take place
260 after the package installation, otherwise the init scripts might not exist.
261 Find the correct init script for the cron and logging daemons, and add that
262 instead of the package atom.
263
264 11 Jun 2005; Robin H. Johnson <robbat2@gentoo.org>
265 src/GLIArchitectureTemplate.py:
266 Fix up _edit_config so that it works if the file doesn't already exist. Fix
267 usage of 'file' to 'contents' for the variable name, as it shadows
268 __builtin__.file.
269
270 11 Jun 2005; Robin H. Johnson <robbat2@gentoo.org>
271 src/GLIArchitectureTemplate.py:
272 Add MTA install code, and include MTA install phase. Ensure
273 PORT_LOGDIR/PORTDIR_OVERLAY are created in _emerge if needed. Add support
274 for 'none' kernel config for build_kernel phase. Put kernel_script in
275 /var/tmp instead of /root for build_kernel phase.
276
277 11 Jun 2005; Robin H. Johnson <robbat2@gentoo.org> src/GLIInstallProfile.py:
278 Rename mta variables to match syslog/cron variables.
279
280 11 Jun 2005; Robin H. Johnson <robbat2@gentoo.org>
281 src/GLIArchitectureTemplate.py, src/templates/x86ArchitectureTemplate.py,
282 src/.cvsignore, src/fe/dialog/.cvsignore, src/fe/gtk/.cvsignore,
283 src/fe/net/client/.cvsignore, src/fe/net/server/.cvsignore,
284 src/templates/.cvsignore, src/tests/.cvsignore:
285 Refactor partition formatting again to include error checking. Allow 'none'
286 for kernel and bootloader specifications. Add .cvsignore files for .py[co].
287
288 11 Jun 2005; Robin H. Johnson <robbat2@gentoo.org>
289 src/GLIArchitectureTemplate.py, src/templates/x86ArchitectureTemplate.py:
290 Refactor _emerge to remove duplicate code. Refactor mkfs code in backend to
291 only have a single spawn call.
292
293 11 Jun 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
294 refixed samyron's fix of set_architecture_template.
295
296 11 Jun 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
297 Move /tmp/spawn.sh and /tmp/post-install to /var/tmp since that should always
298 be executable.
299
300 10 Jun 2005; Scott Myron <samyron@gentoo.org>
301 Fixed one of the FIXME's in the ClientConfiguration. There is now some
302 error checking when you call set_architecture_template.
303
304 10 Jun 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
305 moved the mkfsopts input to the partition options menu instead of the during
306 the creation process. updated GenDialog to say it supports reiserfs v3.
307

309 src/GLIStorageDevice.py, fe/dialog/dialogfe.py:
310 Complete support for 'mkfsopts' parameter in main system and dialogfe.

314
315 9 Jun 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
316 Removed start/end from XML output and added mkfsopts to partitioning info.
317 'mkfsopts' parameter is now used and support for creating xfs, jfs, and
318 reiserfs is now in (patch from robbat2). Change '_parser' to 'self._parser'
319 in GLIClientConfiguration. Change from .1 and .9 to constants for
320 partitioning. Fix free space overwriting bug. Remove a few unused functions
