120 function is called twice on the same file.
121
122 29 Jun 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
123 Missing \ in sed in _get_packages_to_emerge()

163 Add dhcp_options to the CC, CConfig, and GenDialog. More overall changes to
164 GenDialog as it gets closer to completion.
165
166 22 Jun 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
167 Modify get_eth_info() to take a full interface name (eth0 fex). float()
168 instead of int() in add_partition_device_partition() for minor (closes 96804)
169
170 21 Jun 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
171 Changed setup_network_post to check for 'interfaces[interface][0] != "dhcp"'
172 instead of 'interfaces[interface][1]' since DHCP uses that field for its
173 options. setup_network_post() writes custom DHCP options to /etc/conf.d/net.
174
175 20 Jun 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
176 Apply spawn() patch from #96644 (with minor changes). Make sure the return

189 get subarch.
190
191 16 Jun 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
192 Backend partitioning will create disklabel is none exists. Installprofile
193 defaults to "" now instead of "msdos" for disklabel type. Fix for
194 mount_local_partitions() to remember device along with minor in the
195 parts_to_mount dict (closes #96319). mount_local_partitions() cleanups and
196 add else block to log unsupported netmount types to mount_network_shares()
197
198 15 Jun 2005; Robin H. Johnson <robbat2@gentoo.org>

208 2.4 support (pull version data from /usr/src/linux/Makefile), incl.
209 'make dep' call for custom compile. build_mode support for prepare-only and
210 none types completed. custom compile function chains shell functions in
211 spawned script, to allow for catching all errors.
212
213 15 Jun 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
214 fixed up build_kernel in ArchTemplate for build_mode as well as in dialogfe
215 and GenDialog. other gendialog updates as well. kernel updates untested.
216
217 14 Jun 2005; Robin H. Johnson <robbat2@gentoo.org>
218 src/GLIInstallProfile.py:
219 Change structure of etc-portage stuff. The serialization was broken before my
220 last commit, and I am the only person that's ever used it. The new schema is
221 as follows:
222 <etc-portage>
223 <file name="package.mask"/>
224 <file name="package.unmask">
225 <entry atom="sys-kernel/openmosix-sources"/>
226 </file>
227 <file name="package.use">
228 <entry atom="sys-libs/db">
229 -java
230 </entry>
231 <entry atom="dev-libs/cyrus-sasl">
232 -ldap
233 </entry>
234 </file>
235 </etc-portage>
236
237
238 13 Jun 2005; Robin H. Johnson <robbat2@gentoo.org>
239 src/GLIInstallProfile.py:
240 Add new entry for gli-profile/kernel-build-method item. Add missing
241 serialize_etc_portage (temporary). Make serialize_make_conf always print the
242 keys in the same order.
243
244 13 Jun 2005; Robin H. Johnson <robbat2@gentoo.org>
245 src/GLIArchitectureTemplate.py:
246 Clean up commenting used by _edit_config(), and fix bug where wrong comment
247 was repeatedly appended to make.conf.
248
249 13 Jun 2005; Robin H. Johnson <robbat2@gentoo.org>
250 src/GLIArchitectureTemplate.py:
251 Put some Linux-2.6 specific code under a if statement. Store list of
252 successfully mounted swap device for using swapoff. Add proper error checking
253 to install_packages and install_filesystem_tools. Fixed namespace conflicts on
254 'file'. Clean up some redundant code (thanks to pychecker).'
255
256 13 Jun 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
257 Fix typos: get_extended() instead of get_extended_partition(). Added
258 list_mirrors() and list_stage_tarballs_from_mirror() functions to GLIUtility.
259 Change _emerge("sync") call to direct call to spawn to avoid 'emerge -k sync'
260
261 12 Jun 2005; John N. Laliberte <allanonjl@gentoo.org>
262 GLIInstallProfile.py: add missing set for dhcp_options if a tuple is passed
263 in add_network_interface.
264
265 12 Jun 2005; Robin H. Johnson <robbat2@gentoo.org> src/GLIArchitectureTemplate.py:
266 ensure PORTAGE_TMPDIR/PORT_LOGDIR/PORTDIR_OVERLAY/PKGDIR exist prior to any
267 usage - this caused a failure for stage1/stage2 previously. swapoff for swap
268 space at end of install. Mount /dev, /dev/shm, /dev/pts and /sys during
269 prepare_chroot.
270
271 11 Jun 2005; Robin H. Johnson <robbat2@gentoo.org> +src/cli/clife.py,
272 +src/cli/README, +src/fe/installer-cli, +src/fe/installer-dialog,

275 use each frontend.
276
277 11 Jun 2005; Robin H. Johnson <robbat2@gentoo.org>
278 src/GLIClientController.py:

280 and should not be touched (netboot for example).
281
282 11 Jun 2005; Robin H. Johnson <robbat2@gentoo.org>
283 src/GLIArchitectureTemplate.py:
284 pcmcia is not a variable name for a call to _add_to_runlevel, it should be a
285 string!. Try to use binary packages if available by default.
286
287 11 Jun 2005; Robin H. Johnson <robbat2@gentoo.org>
288 src/GLIArchitectureTemplate.py:
289 More error checking for _add_to_runlevel, to ensure that the init script
290 actually exists before we try to add it. set_services phase must take place
291 after the package installation, otherwise the init scripts might not exist.
292 Find the correct init script for the cron and logging daemons, and add that
293 instead of the package atom.
294
295 11 Jun 2005; Robin H. Johnson <robbat2@gentoo.org>
296 src/GLIArchitectureTemplate.py:
297 Fix up _edit_config so that it works if the file doesn't already exist. Fix
298 usage of 'file' to 'contents' for the variable name, as it shadows
299 __builtin__.file.
300
301 11 Jun 2005; Robin H. Johnson <robbat2@gentoo.org>
302 src/GLIArchitectureTemplate.py:
303 Add MTA install code, and include MTA install phase. Ensure
304 PORT_LOGDIR/PORTDIR_OVERLAY are created in _emerge if needed. Add support
305 for 'none' kernel config for build_kernel phase. Put kernel_script in
306 /var/tmp instead of /root for build_kernel phase.
307
308 11 Jun 2005; Robin H. Johnson <robbat2@gentoo.org> src/GLIInstallProfile.py:
309 Rename mta variables to match syslog/cron variables.
310
311 11 Jun 2005; Robin H. Johnson <robbat2@gentoo.org>
312 src/GLIArchitectureTemplate.py, src/templates/x86ArchitectureTemplate.py,
313 src/.cvsignore, src/fe/dialog/.cvsignore, src/fe/gtk/.cvsignore,
314 src/fe/net/client/.cvsignore, src/fe/net/server/.cvsignore,
315 src/templates/.cvsignore, src/tests/.cvsignore:
316 Refactor partition formatting again to include error checking. Allow 'none'
317 for kernel and bootloader specifications. Add .cvsignore files for .py[co].
318
319 11 Jun 2005; Robin H. Johnson <robbat2@gentoo.org>
320 src/GLIArchitectureTemplate.py, src/templates/x86ArchitectureTemplate.py:
321 Refactor _emerge to remove duplicate code. Refactor mkfs code in backend to
322 only have a single spawn call.
323
324 11 Jun 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
325 refixed samyron's fix of set_architecture_template.
326
327 11 Jun 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
328 Move /tmp/spawn.sh and /tmp/post-install to /var/tmp since that should always
329 be executable.
330
331 10 Jun 2005; Scott Myron <samyron@gentoo.org>
332 Fixed one of the FIXME's in the ClientConfiguration. There is now some
333 error checking when you call set_architecture_template.
334
335 10 Jun 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
336 moved the mkfsopts input to the partition options menu instead of the during
337 the creation process. updated GenDialog to say it supports reiserfs v3.
338
339 9 Jun 2005; Robin H. Johnson <robbat2@gentoo.org> src/GLIInstallProfile.py,
340 src/GLIStorageDevice.py, fe/dialog/dialogfe.py:

345
346 9 Jun 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
347 Removed start/end from XML output and added mkfsopts to partitioning info.
348 'mkfsopts' parameter is now used and support for creating xfs, jfs, and
349 reiserfs is now in (patch from robbat2). Change '_parser' to 'self._parser'
350 in GLIClientConfiguration. Change from .1 and .9 to constants for
351 partitioning. Fix free space overwriting bug. Remove a few unused functions
352 from rewrite. Fix call to get_partition_at()
