111 attempt at fixing rc.conf function. moved 3 generate functions out of

134 24 Jun 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
135 Add dhcp_options to the CC, CConfig, and GenDialog. More overall changes to
136 GenDialog as it gets closer to completion.
137
138 22 Jun 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
139 Modify get_eth_info() to take a full interface name (eth0 fex). float()
140 instead of int() in add_partition_device_partition() for minor (closes 96804)
141
142 21 Jun 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
143 Changed setup_network_post to check for 'interfaces[interface][0] != "dhcp"'
144 instead of 'interfaces[interface][1]' since DHCP uses that field for its
145 options. setup_network_post() writes custom DHCP options to /etc/conf.d/net.
146
147 20 Jun 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
148 Apply spawn() patch from #96644 (with minor changes). Make sure the return

161 get subarch.
162
163 16 Jun 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
164 Backend partitioning will create disklabel is none exists. Installprofile
165 defaults to "" now instead of "msdos" for disklabel type. Fix for
166 mount_local_partitions() to remember device along with minor in the
167 parts_to_mount dict (closes #96319). mount_local_partitions() cleanups and
168 add else block to log unsupported netmount types to mount_network_shares()
169
170 15 Jun 2005; Robin H. Johnson <robbat2@gentoo.org>

180 2.4 support (pull version data from /usr/src/linux/Makefile), incl.
181 'make dep' call for custom compile. build_mode support for prepare-only and
182 none types completed. custom compile function chains shell functions in
183 spawned script, to allow for catching all errors.
184
185 15 Jun 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
186 fixed up build_kernel in ArchTemplate for build_mode as well as in dialogfe
187 and GenDialog. other gendialog updates as well. kernel updates untested.
188
189 14 Jun 2005; Robin H. Johnson <robbat2@gentoo.org>
190 src/GLIInstallProfile.py:
191 Change structure of etc-portage stuff. The serialization was broken before my
192 last commit, and I am the only person that's ever used it. The new schema is
193 as follows:
194 <etc-portage>
195 <file name="package.mask"/>
196 <file name="package.unmask">
197 <entry atom="sys-kernel/openmosix-sources"/>
198 </file>
199 <file name="package.use">
200 <entry atom="sys-libs/db">
201 -java
202 </entry>
203 <entry atom="dev-libs/cyrus-sasl">
204 -ldap
205 </entry>
206 </file>
207 </etc-portage>
208
209
210 13 Jun 2005; Robin H. Johnson <robbat2@gentoo.org>
211 src/GLIInstallProfile.py:
212 Add new entry for gli-profile/kernel-build-method item. Add missing
213 serialize_etc_portage (temporary). Make serialize_make_conf always print the
214 keys in the same order.
215
216 13 Jun 2005; Robin H. Johnson <robbat2@gentoo.org>
217 src/GLIArchitectureTemplate.py:
218 Clean up commenting used by _edit_config(), and fix bug where wrong comment
219 was repeatedly appended to make.conf.
220
221 13 Jun 2005; Robin H. Johnson <robbat2@gentoo.org>
222 src/GLIArchitectureTemplate.py:
223 Put some Linux-2.6 specific code under a if statement. Store list of
224 successfully mounted swap device for using swapoff. Add proper error checking
225 to install_packages and install_filesystem_tools. Fixed namespace conflicts on
226 'file'. Clean up some redundant code (thanks to pychecker).'
227
228 13 Jun 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
229 Fix typos: get_extended() instead of get_extended_partition(). Added
230 list_mirrors() and list_stage_tarballs_from_mirror() functions to GLIUtility.
231 Change _emerge("sync") call to direct call to spawn to avoid 'emerge -k sync'
232
233 12 Jun 2005; John N. Laliberte <allanonjl@gentoo.org>
234 GLIInstallProfile.py: add missing set for dhcp_options if a tuple is passed
235 in add_network_interface.
236
237 12 Jun 2005; Robin H. Johnson <robbat2@gentoo.org> src/GLIArchitectureTemplate.py:
238 ensure PORTAGE_TMPDIR/PORT_LOGDIR/PORTDIR_OVERLAY/PKGDIR exist prior to any
239 usage - this caused a failure for stage1/stage2 previously. swapoff for swap
240 space at end of install. Mount /dev, /dev/shm, /dev/pts and /sys during
241 prepare_chroot.
242
243 11 Jun 2005; Robin H. Johnson <robbat2@gentoo.org> +src/cli/clife.py,
244 +src/cli/README, +src/fe/installer-cli, +src/fe/installer-dialog,
245 +src/fe/installer-gtk:
246 Add new automated CLI frontend. Add scripts that are the intended means to
247 use each frontend.
248
249 11 Jun 2005; Robin H. Johnson <robbat2@gentoo.org>
250 src/GLIClientController.py:
251 Add null type to network config, for cases where the interface is already up
252 and should not be touched (netboot for example).
253
254 11 Jun 2005; Robin H. Johnson <robbat2@gentoo.org>
255 src/GLIArchitectureTemplate.py:
256 pcmcia is not a variable name for a call to _add_to_runlevel, it should be a
257 string!. Try to use binary packages if available by default.
258
259 11 Jun 2005; Robin H. Johnson <robbat2@gentoo.org>
260 src/GLIArchitectureTemplate.py:
261 More error checking for _add_to_runlevel, to ensure that the init script
262 actually exists before we try to add it. set_services phase must take place
263 after the package installation, otherwise the init scripts might not exist.
264 Find the correct init script for the cron and logging daemons, and add that
265 instead of the package atom.
266
267 11 Jun 2005; Robin H. Johnson <robbat2@gentoo.org>
268 src/GLIArchitectureTemplate.py:
269 Fix up _edit_config so that it works if the file doesn't already exist. Fix
270 usage of 'file' to 'contents' for the variable name, as it shadows
271 __builtin__.file.
272
273 11 Jun 2005; Robin H. Johnson <robbat2@gentoo.org>
274 src/GLIArchitectureTemplate.py:
275 Add MTA install code, and include MTA install phase. Ensure
276 PORT_LOGDIR/PORTDIR_OVERLAY are created in _emerge if needed. Add support
277 for 'none' kernel config for build_kernel phase. Put kernel_script in
278 /var/tmp instead of /root for build_kernel phase.
279
280 11 Jun 2005; Robin H. Johnson <robbat2@gentoo.org> src/GLIInstallProfile.py:
281 Rename mta variables to match syslog/cron variables.
282
283 11 Jun 2005; Robin H. Johnson <robbat2@gentoo.org>
284 src/GLIArchitectureTemplate.py, src/templates/x86ArchitectureTemplate.py,
285 src/.cvsignore, src/fe/dialog/.cvsignore, src/fe/gtk/.cvsignore,
286 src/fe/net/client/.cvsignore, src/fe/net/server/.cvsignore,
287 src/templates/.cvsignore, src/tests/.cvsignore:
288 Refactor partition formatting again to include error checking. Allow 'none'
289 for kernel and bootloader specifications. Add .cvsignore files for .py[co].
290
291 11 Jun 2005; Robin H. Johnson <robbat2@gentoo.org>
292 src/GLIArchitectureTemplate.py, src/templates/x86ArchitectureTemplate.py:
293 Refactor _emerge to remove duplicate code. Refactor mkfs code in backend to
294 only have a single spawn call.
295
296 11 Jun 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
297 refixed samyron's fix of set_architecture_template.
298
299 11 Jun 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
300 Move /tmp/spawn.sh and /tmp/post-install to /var/tmp since that should always
301 be executable.
302
303 10 Jun 2005; Scott Myron <samyron@gentoo.org>
304 Fixed one of the FIXME's in the ClientConfiguration. There is now some
305 error checking when you call set_architecture_template.
306
307 10 Jun 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
308 moved the mkfsopts input to the partition options menu instead of the during
309 the creation process. updated GenDialog to say it supports reiserfs v3.
310
311 9 Jun 2005; Robin H. Johnson <robbat2@gentoo.org> src/GLIInstallProfile.py,
312 src/GLIStorageDevice.py, fe/dialog/dialogfe.py:
313 Complete support for 'mkfsopts' parameter in main system and dialogfe.
314 Add support for other partition types to dialogfe.
315 Fix all usages of int(possible_big_number) to long(possible_bit_number) to
316 avoid integer overflows and wraparounds.
317
318 9 Jun 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
319 Removed start/end from XML output and added mkfsopts to partitioning info.
320 'mkfsopts' parameter is now used and support for creating xfs, jfs, and
321 reiserfs is now in (patch from robbat2). Change '_parser' to 'self._parser'
322 in GLIClientConfiguration. Change from .1 and .9 to constants for
323 partitioning. Fix free space overwriting bug. Remove a few unused functions
