178
179 22 Jun 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
180 Modify get_eth_info() to take a full interface name (eth0 fex). float()
181 instead of int() in add_partition_device_partition() for minor (closes 96804)
182
183 21 Jun 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
184 Changed setup_network_post to check for 'interfaces[interface][0] != "dhcp"'
185 instead of 'interfaces[interface][1]' since DHCP uses that field for its
186 options. setup_network_post() writes custom DHCP options to /etc/conf.d/net.
187
188 20 Jun 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
189 Apply spawn() patch from #96644 (with minor changes). Make sure the return

202 get subarch.
203
204 16 Jun 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
205 Backend partitioning will create disklabel is none exists. Installprofile
206 defaults to "" now instead of "msdos" for disklabel type. Fix for
207 mount_local_partitions() to remember device along with minor in the
208 parts_to_mount dict (closes #96319). mount_local_partitions() cleanups and
209 add else block to log unsupported netmount types to mount_network_shares()
210
211 15 Jun 2005; Robin H. Johnson <robbat2@gentoo.org>

222 'make dep' call for custom compile. build_mode support for prepare-only and
223 none types completed. custom compile function chains shell functions in
224 spawned script, to allow for catching all errors.
225
226 15 Jun 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
227 fixed up build_kernel in ArchTemplate for build_mode as well as in dialogfe
228 and GenDialog. other gendialog updates as well. kernel updates untested.
229
230 14 Jun 2005; Robin H. Johnson <robbat2@gentoo.org>
231 src/GLIInstallProfile.py:
232 Change structure of etc-portage stuff. The serialization was broken before my
233 last commit, and I am the only person that's ever used it. The new schema is
234 as follows:
235 <etc-portage>
236 <file name="package.mask"/>
237 <file name="package.unmask">
238 <entry atom="sys-kernel/openmosix-sources"/>
239 </file>
240 <file name="package.use">
241 <entry atom="sys-libs/db">
242 -java
243 </entry>
244 <entry atom="dev-libs/cyrus-sasl">
245 -ldap
246 </entry>
247 </file>
248 </etc-portage>
249

251 13 Jun 2005; Robin H. Johnson <robbat2@gentoo.org>
252 src/GLIInstallProfile.py:
253 Add new entry for gli-profile/kernel-build-method item. Add missing
254 serialize_etc_portage (temporary). Make serialize_make_conf always print the
255 keys in the same order.
256
257 13 Jun 2005; Robin H. Johnson <robbat2@gentoo.org>
258 src/GLIArchitectureTemplate.py:
259 Clean up commenting used by _edit_config(), and fix bug where wrong comment
260 was repeatedly appended to make.conf.
261
262 13 Jun 2005; Robin H. Johnson <robbat2@gentoo.org>
263 src/GLIArchitectureTemplate.py:
264 Put some Linux-2.6 specific code under a if statement. Store list of
265 successfully mounted swap device for using swapoff. Add proper error checking
266 to install_packages and install_filesystem_tools. Fixed namespace conflicts on
267 'file'. Clean up some redundant code (thanks to pychecker).'
268
269 13 Jun 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
270 Fix typos: get_extended() instead of get_extended_partition(). Added
271 list_mirrors() and list_stage_tarballs_from_mirror() functions to GLIUtility.
272 Change _emerge("sync") call to direct call to spawn to avoid 'emerge -k sync'
273
274 12 Jun 2005; John N. Laliberte <allanonjl@gentoo.org>
275 GLIInstallProfile.py: add missing set for dhcp_options if a tuple is passed
276 in add_network_interface.
277
278 12 Jun 2005; Robin H. Johnson <robbat2@gentoo.org> src/GLIArchitectureTemplate.py:
279 ensure PORTAGE_TMPDIR/PORT_LOGDIR/PORTDIR_OVERLAY/PKGDIR exist prior to any
280 usage - this caused a failure for stage1/stage2 previously. swapoff for swap
281 space at end of install. Mount /dev, /dev/shm, /dev/pts and /sys during
282 prepare_chroot.
283
284 11 Jun 2005; Robin H. Johnson <robbat2@gentoo.org> +src/cli/clife.py,
285 +src/cli/README, +src/fe/installer-cli, +src/fe/installer-dialog,

288 use each frontend.
289

293 and should not be touched (netboot for example).
294
295 11 Jun 2005; Robin H. Johnson <robbat2@gentoo.org>
296 src/GLIArchitectureTemplate.py:
297 pcmcia is not a variable name for a call to _add_to_runlevel, it should be a
298 string!. Try to use binary packages if available by default.
299
300 11 Jun 2005; Robin H. Johnson <robbat2@gentoo.org>
301 src/GLIArchitectureTemplate.py:
302 More error checking for _add_to_runlevel, to ensure that the init script
303 actually exists before we try to add it. set_services phase must take place
304 after the package installation, otherwise the init scripts might not exist.
305 Find the correct init script for the cron and logging daemons, and add that
306 instead of the package atom.
307
308 11 Jun 2005; Robin H. Johnson <robbat2@gentoo.org>
309 src/GLIArchitectureTemplate.py:
310 Fix up _edit_config so that it works if the file doesn't already exist. Fix
311 usage of 'file' to 'contents' for the variable name, as it shadows
312 __builtin__.file.
313
314 11 Jun 2005; Robin H. Johnson <robbat2@gentoo.org>
315 src/GLIArchitectureTemplate.py:
316 Add MTA install code, and include MTA install phase. Ensure
317 PORT_LOGDIR/PORTDIR_OVERLAY are created in _emerge if needed. Add support
318 for 'none' kernel config for build_kernel phase. Put kernel_script in
319 /var/tmp instead of /root for build_kernel phase.
320
321 11 Jun 2005; Robin H. Johnson <robbat2@gentoo.org> src/GLIInstallProfile.py:
322 Rename mta variables to match syslog/cron variables.
323
324 11 Jun 2005; Robin H. Johnson <robbat2@gentoo.org>
325 src/GLIArchitectureTemplate.py, src/templates/x86ArchitectureTemplate.py,
326 src/.cvsignore, src/fe/dialog/.cvsignore, src/fe/gtk/.cvsignore,
327 src/fe/net/client/.cvsignore, src/fe/net/server/.cvsignore,
328 src/templates/.cvsignore, src/tests/.cvsignore:
329 Refactor partition formatting again to include error checking. Allow 'none'
330 for kernel and bootloader specifications. Add .cvsignore files for .py[co].
331
332 11 Jun 2005; Robin H. Johnson <robbat2@gentoo.org>
333 src/GLIArchitectureTemplate.py, src/templates/x86ArchitectureTemplate.py:
334 Refactor _emerge to remove duplicate code. Refactor mkfs code in backend to
335 only have a single spawn call.
336
337 11 Jun 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
338 refixed samyron's fix of set_architecture_template.
339
340 11 Jun 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
341 Move /tmp/spawn.sh and /tmp/post-install to /var/tmp since that should always
342 be executable.
343
344 10 Jun 2005; Scott Myron <samyron@gentoo.org>
345 Fixed one of the FIXME's in the ClientConfiguration. There is now some
346 error checking when you call set_architecture_template.
347
348 10 Jun 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
349 moved the mkfsopts input to the partition options menu instead of the during
350 the creation process. updated GenDialog to say it supports reiserfs v3.
351
352 9 Jun 2005; Robin H. Johnson <robbat2@gentoo.org> src/GLIInstallProfile.py,

359 9 Jun 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
360 Removed start/end from XML output and added mkfsopts to partitioning info.
361 'mkfsopts' parameter is now used and support for creating xfs, jfs, and
362 reiserfs is now in (patch from robbat2). Change '_parser' to 'self._parser'
363 in GLIClientConfiguration. Change from .1 and .9 to constants for
364 partitioning. Fix free space overwriting bug. Remove a few unused functions
