130 added dialog.py to /src temporarily until it gets accepted upstream.
131 fix for unused value in form in dialog.py and changed heights.

140
141 24 Jun 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
142 Add dhcp_options to the CC, CConfig, and GenDialog. More overall changes to
143 GenDialog as it gets closer to completion.
144
145 22 Jun 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
146 Modify get_eth_info() to take a full interface name (eth0 fex). float()
147 instead of int() in add_partition_device_partition() for minor (closes 96804)
148
149 21 Jun 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
150 Changed setup_network_post to check for 'interfaces[interface][0] != "dhcp"'
151 instead of 'interfaces[interface][1]' since DHCP uses that field for its
152 options. setup_network_post() writes custom DHCP options to /etc/conf.d/net.
153
154 20 Jun 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
155 Apply spawn() patch from #96644 (with minor changes). Make sure the return

168 get subarch.
169
170 16 Jun 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
171 Backend partitioning will create disklabel is none exists. Installprofile
172 defaults to "" now instead of "msdos" for disklabel type. Fix for
173 mount_local_partitions() to remember device along with minor in the
174 parts_to_mount dict (closes #96319). mount_local_partitions() cleanups and
175 add else block to log unsupported netmount types to mount_network_shares()
176
177 15 Jun 2005; Robin H. Johnson <robbat2@gentoo.org>

187 2.4 support (pull version data from /usr/src/linux/Makefile), incl.
188 'make dep' call for custom compile. build_mode support for prepare-only and
189 none types completed. custom compile function chains shell functions in
190 spawned script, to allow for catching all errors.
191
192 15 Jun 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
193 fixed up build_kernel in ArchTemplate for build_mode as well as in dialogfe
194 and GenDialog. other gendialog updates as well. kernel updates untested.
195
196 14 Jun 2005; Robin H. Johnson <robbat2@gentoo.org>
197 src/GLIInstallProfile.py:
198 Change structure of etc-portage stuff. The serialization was broken before my
199 last commit, and I am the only person that's ever used it. The new schema is
200 as follows:
201 <etc-portage>
202 <file name="package.mask"/>
203 <file name="package.unmask">
204 <entry atom="sys-kernel/openmosix-sources"/>
205 </file>
206 <file name="package.use">
207 <entry atom="sys-libs/db">
208 -java
209 </entry>
210 <entry atom="dev-libs/cyrus-sasl">
211 -ldap
212 </entry>
213 </file>
214 </etc-portage>
215
216
217 13 Jun 2005; Robin H. Johnson <robbat2@gentoo.org>
218 src/GLIInstallProfile.py:
219 Add new entry for gli-profile/kernel-build-method item. Add missing
220 serialize_etc_portage (temporary). Make serialize_make_conf always print the
221 keys in the same order.
222
223 13 Jun 2005; Robin H. Johnson <robbat2@gentoo.org>
224 src/GLIArchitectureTemplate.py:
225 Clean up commenting used by _edit_config(), and fix bug where wrong comment
226 was repeatedly appended to make.conf.
227
228 13 Jun 2005; Robin H. Johnson <robbat2@gentoo.org>
229 src/GLIArchitectureTemplate.py:
230 Put some Linux-2.6 specific code under a if statement. Store list of
231 successfully mounted swap device for using swapoff. Add proper error checking
232 to install_packages and install_filesystem_tools. Fixed namespace conflicts on
233 'file'. Clean up some redundant code (thanks to pychecker).'
234
235 13 Jun 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
236 Fix typos: get_extended() instead of get_extended_partition(). Added
237 list_mirrors() and list_stage_tarballs_from_mirror() functions to GLIUtility.
238 Change _emerge("sync") call to direct call to spawn to avoid 'emerge -k sync'
239
240 12 Jun 2005; John N. Laliberte <allanonjl@gentoo.org>
241 GLIInstallProfile.py: add missing set for dhcp_options if a tuple is passed
242 in add_network_interface.
243
244 12 Jun 2005; Robin H. Johnson <robbat2@gentoo.org> src/GLIArchitectureTemplate.py:
245 ensure PORTAGE_TMPDIR/PORT_LOGDIR/PORTDIR_OVERLAY/PKGDIR exist prior to any
246 usage - this caused a failure for stage1/stage2 previously. swapoff for swap
247 space at end of install. Mount /dev, /dev/shm, /dev/pts and /sys during
248 prepare_chroot.
249
250 11 Jun 2005; Robin H. Johnson <robbat2@gentoo.org> +src/cli/clife.py,
251 +src/cli/README, +src/fe/installer-cli, +src/fe/installer-dialog,
252 +src/fe/installer-gtk:

254 use each frontend.
255
256 11 Jun 2005; Robin H. Johnson <robbat2@gentoo.org>
257 src/GLIClientController.py:
258 Add null type to network config, for cases where the interface is already up
259 and should not be touched (netboot for example).
260
261 11 Jun 2005; Robin H. Johnson <robbat2@gentoo.org>
262 src/GLIArchitectureTemplate.py:
263 pcmcia is not a variable name for a call to _add_to_runlevel, it should be a
264 string!. Try to use binary packages if available by default.
265
266 11 Jun 2005; Robin H. Johnson <robbat2@gentoo.org>
267 src/GLIArchitectureTemplate.py:
268 More error checking for _add_to_runlevel, to ensure that the init script
269 actually exists before we try to add it. set_services phase must take place
270 after the package installation, otherwise the init scripts might not exist.
271 Find the correct init script for the cron and logging daemons, and add that
272 instead of the package atom.
273
274 11 Jun 2005; Robin H. Johnson <robbat2@gentoo.org>
275 src/GLIArchitectureTemplate.py:
276 Fix up _edit_config so that it works if the file doesn't already exist. Fix
277 usage of 'file' to 'contents' for the variable name, as it shadows
278 __builtin__.file.
279
280 11 Jun 2005; Robin H. Johnson <robbat2@gentoo.org>
281 src/GLIArchitectureTemplate.py:
282 Add MTA install code, and include MTA install phase. Ensure
283 PORT_LOGDIR/PORTDIR_OVERLAY are created in _emerge if needed. Add support
284 for 'none' kernel config for build_kernel phase. Put kernel_script in
285 /var/tmp instead of /root for build_kernel phase.
286
287 11 Jun 2005; Robin H. Johnson <robbat2@gentoo.org> src/GLIInstallProfile.py:
288 Rename mta variables to match syslog/cron variables.
289
290 11 Jun 2005; Robin H. Johnson <robbat2@gentoo.org>
291 src/GLIArchitectureTemplate.py, src/templates/x86ArchitectureTemplate.py,
292 src/.cvsignore, src/fe/dialog/.cvsignore, src/fe/gtk/.cvsignore,
293 src/fe/net/client/.cvsignore, src/fe/net/server/.cvsignore,
294 src/templates/.cvsignore, src/tests/.cvsignore:
295 Refactor partition formatting again to include error checking. Allow 'none'
296 for kernel and bootloader specifications. Add .cvsignore files for .py[co].
297
298 11 Jun 2005; Robin H. Johnson <robbat2@gentoo.org>
299 src/GLIArchitectureTemplate.py, src/templates/x86ArchitectureTemplate.py:
300 Refactor _emerge to remove duplicate code. Refactor mkfs code in backend to
301 only have a single spawn call.
302
303 11 Jun 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
304 refixed samyron's fix of set_architecture_template.
305
306 11 Jun 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
307 Move /tmp/spawn.sh and /tmp/post-install to /var/tmp since that should always
308 be executable.
309
310 10 Jun 2005; Scott Myron <samyron@gentoo.org>
311 Fixed one of the FIXME's in the ClientConfiguration. There is now some
312 error checking when you call set_architecture_template.
313
314 10 Jun 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
315 moved the mkfsopts input to the partition options menu instead of the during
316 the creation process. updated GenDialog to say it supports reiserfs v3.
317

324
325 9 Jun 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
326 Removed start/end from XML output and added mkfsopts to partitioning info.
327 'mkfsopts' parameter is now used and support for creating xfs, jfs, and
328 reiserfs is now in (patch from robbat2). Change '_parser' to 'self._parser'
329 in GLIClientConfiguration. Change from .1 and .9 to constants for
330 partitioning. Fix free space overwriting bug. Remove a few unused functions
