106 function is called twice on the same file.
107
108 29 Jun 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
109 Missing \ in sed in _get_packages_to_emerge()

149 Add dhcp_options to the CC, CConfig, and GenDialog. More overall changes to
150 GenDialog as it gets closer to completion.
151
152 22 Jun 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
153 Modify get_eth_info() to take a full interface name (eth0 fex). float()
154 instead of int() in add_partition_device_partition() for minor (closes 96804)
155
156 21 Jun 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
157 Changed setup_network_post to check for 'interfaces[interface][0] != "dhcp"'
158 instead of 'interfaces[interface][1]' since DHCP uses that field for its
159 options. setup_network_post() writes custom DHCP options to /etc/conf.d/net.
160
161 20 Jun 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
162 Apply spawn() patch from #96644 (with minor changes). Make sure the return

175 get subarch.
176
177 16 Jun 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
178 Backend partitioning will create disklabel is none exists. Installprofile
179 defaults to "" now instead of "msdos" for disklabel type. Fix for
180 mount_local_partitions() to remember device along with minor in the
181 parts_to_mount dict (closes #96319). mount_local_partitions() cleanups and
182 add else block to log unsupported netmount types to mount_network_shares()
183
184 15 Jun 2005; Robin H. Johnson <robbat2@gentoo.org>

194 2.4 support (pull version data from /usr/src/linux/Makefile), incl.
195 'make dep' call for custom compile. build_mode support for prepare-only and
196 none types completed. custom compile function chains shell functions in
197 spawned script, to allow for catching all errors.
198
199 15 Jun 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
200 fixed up build_kernel in ArchTemplate for build_mode as well as in dialogfe
201 and GenDialog. other gendialog updates as well. kernel updates untested.
202
203 14 Jun 2005; Robin H. Johnson <robbat2@gentoo.org>
204 src/GLIInstallProfile.py:
205 Change structure of etc-portage stuff. The serialization was broken before my
206 last commit, and I am the only person that's ever used it. The new schema is
207 as follows:
208 <etc-portage>
209 <file name="package.mask"/>
210 <file name="package.unmask">
211 <entry atom="sys-kernel/openmosix-sources"/>
212 </file>
213 <file name="package.use">
214 <entry atom="sys-libs/db">
215 -java
216 </entry>
217 <entry atom="dev-libs/cyrus-sasl">
218 -ldap
219 </entry>
220 </file>
221 </etc-portage>
222
223
224 13 Jun 2005; Robin H. Johnson <robbat2@gentoo.org>
225 src/GLIInstallProfile.py:
226 Add new entry for gli-profile/kernel-build-method item. Add missing
227 serialize_etc_portage (temporary). Make serialize_make_conf always print the
228 keys in the same order.
229
230 13 Jun 2005; Robin H. Johnson <robbat2@gentoo.org>
231 src/GLIArchitectureTemplate.py:
232 Clean up commenting used by _edit_config(), and fix bug where wrong comment
233 was repeatedly appended to make.conf.
234
235 13 Jun 2005; Robin H. Johnson <robbat2@gentoo.org>
236 src/GLIArchitectureTemplate.py:
237 Put some Linux-2.6 specific code under a if statement. Store list of
238 successfully mounted swap device for using swapoff. Add proper error checking
239 to install_packages and install_filesystem_tools. Fixed namespace conflicts on
240 'file'. Clean up some redundant code (thanks to pychecker).'
241
242 13 Jun 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
243 Fix typos: get_extended() instead of get_extended_partition(). Added
244 list_mirrors() and list_stage_tarballs_from_mirror() functions to GLIUtility.
245 Change _emerge("sync") call to direct call to spawn to avoid 'emerge -k sync'
246
247 12 Jun 2005; John N. Laliberte <allanonjl@gentoo.org>
248 GLIInstallProfile.py: add missing set for dhcp_options if a tuple is passed
249 in add_network_interface.
250
251 12 Jun 2005; Robin H. Johnson <robbat2@gentoo.org> src/GLIArchitectureTemplate.py:
252 ensure PORTAGE_TMPDIR/PORT_LOGDIR/PORTDIR_OVERLAY/PKGDIR exist prior to any
253 usage - this caused a failure for stage1/stage2 previously. swapoff for swap
254 space at end of install. Mount /dev, /dev/shm, /dev/pts and /sys during
255 prepare_chroot.
256
257 11 Jun 2005; Robin H. Johnson <robbat2@gentoo.org> +src/cli/clife.py,
258 +src/cli/README, +src/fe/installer-cli, +src/fe/installer-dialog,

266 and should not be touched (netboot for example).
267
268 11 Jun 2005; Robin H. Johnson <robbat2@gentoo.org>
269 src/GLIArchitectureTemplate.py:
270 pcmcia is not a variable name for a call to _add_to_runlevel, it should be a
271 string!. Try to use binary packages if available by default.
272
273 11 Jun 2005; Robin H. Johnson <robbat2@gentoo.org>
274 src/GLIArchitectureTemplate.py:
275 More error checking for _add_to_runlevel, to ensure that the init script
276 actually exists before we try to add it. set_services phase must take place
277 after the package installation, otherwise the init scripts might not exist.
278 Find the correct init script for the cron and logging daemons, and add that
279 instead of the package atom.
280
281 11 Jun 2005; Robin H. Johnson <robbat2@gentoo.org>
282 src/GLIArchitectureTemplate.py:
283 Fix up _edit_config so that it works if the file doesn't already exist. Fix
284 usage of 'file' to 'contents' for the variable name, as it shadows
285 __builtin__.file.
286
287 11 Jun 2005; Robin H. Johnson <robbat2@gentoo.org>
288 src/GLIArchitectureTemplate.py:
289 Add MTA install code, and include MTA install phase. Ensure
290 PORT_LOGDIR/PORTDIR_OVERLAY are created in _emerge if needed. Add support
291 for 'none' kernel config for build_kernel phase. Put kernel_script in
292 /var/tmp instead of /root for build_kernel phase.
293
294 11 Jun 2005; Robin H. Johnson <robbat2@gentoo.org> src/GLIInstallProfile.py:
295 Rename mta variables to match syslog/cron variables.
296
297 11 Jun 2005; Robin H. Johnson <robbat2@gentoo.org>
298 src/GLIArchitectureTemplate.py, src/templates/x86ArchitectureTemplate.py,
299 src/.cvsignore, src/fe/dialog/.cvsignore, src/fe/gtk/.cvsignore,
300 src/fe/net/client/.cvsignore, src/fe/net/server/.cvsignore,
301 src/templates/.cvsignore, src/tests/.cvsignore:
302 Refactor partition formatting again to include error checking. Allow 'none'
303 for kernel and bootloader specifications. Add .cvsignore files for .py[co].
304
305 11 Jun 2005; Robin H. Johnson <robbat2@gentoo.org>
306 src/GLIArchitectureTemplate.py, src/templates/x86ArchitectureTemplate.py:
307 Refactor _emerge to remove duplicate code. Refactor mkfs code in backend to
308 only have a single spawn call.
309
310 11 Jun 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
311 refixed samyron's fix of set_architecture_template.
312
313 11 Jun 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
314 Move /tmp/spawn.sh and /tmp/post-install to /var/tmp since that should always
315 be executable.
316
317 10 Jun 2005; Scott Myron <samyron@gentoo.org>
318 Fixed one of the FIXME's in the ClientConfiguration. There is now some
319 error checking when you call set_architecture_template.
320
321 10 Jun 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
322 moved the mkfsopts input to the partition options menu instead of the during
323 the creation process. updated GenDialog to say it supports reiserfs v3.
324
325 9 Jun 2005; Robin H. Johnson <robbat2@gentoo.org> src/GLIInstallProfile.py,

332 9 Jun 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
333 Removed start/end from XML output and added mkfsopts to partitioning info.
334 'mkfsopts' parameter is now used and support for creating xfs, jfs, and
335 reiserfs is now in (patch from robbat2). Change '_parser' to 'self._parser'
336 in GLIClientConfiguration. Change from .1 and .9 to constants for
337 partitioning. Fix free space overwriting bug. Remove a few unused functions
