107 function is called twice on the same file.
108

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

176 get subarch.
177
178 16 Jun 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
179 Backend partitioning will create disklabel is none exists. Installprofile
180 defaults to "" now instead of "msdos" for disklabel type. Fix for
181 mount_local_partitions() to remember device along with minor in the
182 parts_to_mount dict (closes #96319). mount_local_partitions() cleanups and
183 add else block to log unsupported netmount types to mount_network_shares()
184
185 15 Jun 2005; Robin H. Johnson <robbat2@gentoo.org>

198 spawned script, to allow for catching all errors.
199
200 15 Jun 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
201 fixed up build_kernel in ArchTemplate for build_mode as well as in dialogfe
202 and GenDialog. other gendialog updates as well. kernel updates untested.
203
204 14 Jun 2005; Robin H. Johnson <robbat2@gentoo.org>
205 src/GLIInstallProfile.py:
206 Change structure of etc-portage stuff. The serialization was broken before my
207 last commit, and I am the only person that's ever used it. The new schema is
208 as follows:
209 <etc-portage>
210 <file name="package.mask"/>
211 <file name="package.unmask">
212 <entry atom="sys-kernel/openmosix-sources"/>
213 </file>
214 <file name="package.use">
215 <entry atom="sys-libs/db">
216 -java
217 </entry>
218 <entry atom="dev-libs/cyrus-sasl">
219 -ldap
220 </entry>
221 </file>
222 </etc-portage>
223
224
225 13 Jun 2005; Robin H. Johnson <robbat2@gentoo.org>
226 src/GLIInstallProfile.py:
227 Add new entry for gli-profile/kernel-build-method item. Add missing
228 serialize_etc_portage (temporary). Make serialize_make_conf always print the
229 keys in the same order.
230
231 13 Jun 2005; Robin H. Johnson <robbat2@gentoo.org>
232 src/GLIArchitectureTemplate.py:
233 Clean up commenting used by _edit_config(), and fix bug where wrong comment
234 was repeatedly appended to make.conf.
235
236 13 Jun 2005; Robin H. Johnson <robbat2@gentoo.org>
237 src/GLIArchitectureTemplate.py:
238 Put some Linux-2.6 specific code under a if statement. Store list of
239 successfully mounted swap device for using swapoff. Add proper error checking
240 to install_packages and install_filesystem_tools. Fixed namespace conflicts on
241 'file'. Clean up some redundant code (thanks to pychecker).'
242
243 13 Jun 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
244 Fix typos: get_extended() instead of get_extended_partition(). Added
245 list_mirrors() and list_stage_tarballs_from_mirror() functions to GLIUtility.
246 Change _emerge("sync") call to direct call to spawn to avoid 'emerge -k sync'
247
248 12 Jun 2005; John N. Laliberte <allanonjl@gentoo.org>
249 GLIInstallProfile.py: add missing set for dhcp_options if a tuple is passed
250 in add_network_interface.
251
252 12 Jun 2005; Robin H. Johnson <robbat2@gentoo.org> src/GLIArchitectureTemplate.py:
253 ensure PORTAGE_TMPDIR/PORT_LOGDIR/PORTDIR_OVERLAY/PKGDIR exist prior to any
254 usage - this caused a failure for stage1/stage2 previously. swapoff for swap
255 space at end of install. Mount /dev, /dev/shm, /dev/pts and /sys during
256 prepare_chroot.
257
258 11 Jun 2005; Robin H. Johnson <robbat2@gentoo.org> +src/cli/clife.py,

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

333 9 Jun 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
334 Removed start/end from XML output and added mkfsopts to partitioning info.
335 'mkfsopts' parameter is now used and support for creating xfs, jfs, and
336 reiserfs is now in (patch from robbat2). Change '_parser' to 'self._parser'
