205
206 22 Jun 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>

208 instead of int() in add_partition_device_partition() for minor (closes 96804)
209
210 21 Jun 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
211 Changed setup_network_post to check for 'interfaces[interface][0] != "dhcp"'
212 instead of 'interfaces[interface][1]' since DHCP uses that field for its
213 options. setup_network_post() writes custom DHCP options to /etc/conf.d/net.
214
215 20 Jun 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
216 Apply spawn() patch from #96644 (with minor changes). Make sure the return

229 get subarch.
230
231 16 Jun 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
232 Backend partitioning will create disklabel is none exists. Installprofile
233 defaults to "" now instead of "msdos" for disklabel type. Fix for
234 mount_local_partitions() to remember device along with minor in the
235 parts_to_mount dict (closes #96319). mount_local_partitions() cleanups and
236 add else block to log unsupported netmount types to mount_network_shares()
237
238 15 Jun 2005; Robin H. Johnson <robbat2@gentoo.org>

248 2.4 support (pull version data from /usr/src/linux/Makefile), incl.
249 'make dep' call for custom compile. build_mode support for prepare-only and
250 none types completed. custom compile function chains shell functions in
251 spawned script, to allow for catching all errors.
252
253 15 Jun 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
254 fixed up build_kernel in ArchTemplate for build_mode as well as in dialogfe
255 and GenDialog. other gendialog updates as well. kernel updates untested.
256
257 14 Jun 2005; Robin H. Johnson <robbat2@gentoo.org>
258 src/GLIInstallProfile.py:
259 Change structure of etc-portage stuff. The serialization was broken before my
260 last commit, and I am the only person that's ever used it. The new schema is
261 as follows:
262 <etc-portage>
263 <file name="package.mask"/>
264 <file name="package.unmask">
265 <entry atom="sys-kernel/openmosix-sources"/>
266 </file>
267 <file name="package.use">
268 <entry atom="sys-libs/db">
269 -java
270 </entry>
271 <entry atom="dev-libs/cyrus-sasl">
272 -ldap
273 </entry>
274 </file>
275 </etc-portage>
276
277
278 13 Jun 2005; Robin H. Johnson <robbat2@gentoo.org>
279 src/GLIInstallProfile.py:
280 Add new entry for gli-profile/kernel-build-method item. Add missing
281 serialize_etc_portage (temporary). Make serialize_make_conf always print the
282 keys in the same order.
283
284 13 Jun 2005; Robin H. Johnson <robbat2@gentoo.org>
285 src/GLIArchitectureTemplate.py:
286 Clean up commenting used by _edit_config(), and fix bug where wrong comment
287 was repeatedly appended to make.conf.
288
289 13 Jun 2005; Robin H. Johnson <robbat2@gentoo.org>
290 src/GLIArchitectureTemplate.py:
291 Put some Linux-2.6 specific code under a if statement. Store list of
292 successfully mounted swap device for using swapoff. Add proper error checking
293 to install_packages and install_filesystem_tools. Fixed namespace conflicts on
294 'file'. Clean up some redundant code (thanks to pychecker).'
295
296 13 Jun 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
297 Fix typos: get_extended() instead of get_extended_partition(). Added
298 list_mirrors() and list_stage_tarballs_from_mirror() functions to GLIUtility.
299 Change _emerge("sync") call to direct call to spawn to avoid 'emerge -k sync'
300
301 12 Jun 2005; John N. Laliberte <allanonjl@gentoo.org>
302 GLIInstallProfile.py: add missing set for dhcp_options if a tuple is passed
303 in add_network_interface.
304
305 12 Jun 2005; Robin H. Johnson <robbat2@gentoo.org> src/GLIArchitectureTemplate.py:
306 ensure PORTAGE_TMPDIR/PORT_LOGDIR/PORTDIR_OVERLAY/PKGDIR exist prior to any
307 usage - this caused a failure for stage1/stage2 previously. swapoff for swap
308 space at end of install. Mount /dev, /dev/shm, /dev/pts and /sys during
309 prepare_chroot.
310
311 11 Jun 2005; Robin H. Johnson <robbat2@gentoo.org> +src/cli/clife.py,
312 +src/cli/README, +src/fe/installer-cli, +src/fe/installer-dialog,

315 use each frontend.
316

320 and should not be touched (netboot for example).
321
322 11 Jun 2005; Robin H. Johnson <robbat2@gentoo.org>
323 src/GLIArchitectureTemplate.py:
324 pcmcia is not a variable name for a call to _add_to_runlevel, it should be a
325 string!. Try to use binary packages if available by default.
326
327 11 Jun 2005; Robin H. Johnson <robbat2@gentoo.org>
328 src/GLIArchitectureTemplate.py:
329 More error checking for _add_to_runlevel, to ensure that the init script
330 actually exists before we try to add it. set_services phase must take place
331 after the package installation, otherwise the init scripts might not exist.
332 Find the correct init script for the cron and logging daemons, and add that
333 instead of the package atom.
334
335 11 Jun 2005; Robin H. Johnson <robbat2@gentoo.org>
336 src/GLIArchitectureTemplate.py:
337 Fix up _edit_config so that it works if the file doesn't already exist. Fix
338 usage of 'file' to 'contents' for the variable name, as it shadows
339 __builtin__.file.
340
341 11 Jun 2005; Robin H. Johnson <robbat2@gentoo.org>
342 src/GLIArchitectureTemplate.py:
343 Add MTA install code, and include MTA install phase. Ensure
344 PORT_LOGDIR/PORTDIR_OVERLAY are created in _emerge if needed. Add support
345 for 'none' kernel config for build_kernel phase. Put kernel_script in
346 /var/tmp instead of /root for build_kernel phase.
347
348 11 Jun 2005; Robin H. Johnson <robbat2@gentoo.org> src/GLIInstallProfile.py:
349 Rename mta variables to match syslog/cron variables.
350
351 11 Jun 2005; Robin H. Johnson <robbat2@gentoo.org>
352 src/GLIArchitectureTemplate.py, src/templates/x86ArchitectureTemplate.py,
353 src/.cvsignore, src/fe/dialog/.cvsignore, src/fe/gtk/.cvsignore,
354 src/fe/net/client/.cvsignore, src/fe/net/server/.cvsignore,
355 src/templates/.cvsignore, src/tests/.cvsignore:
356 Refactor partition formatting again to include error checking. Allow 'none'
357 for kernel and bootloader specifications. Add .cvsignore files for .py[co].
358
359 11 Jun 2005; Robin H. Johnson <robbat2@gentoo.org>
360 src/GLIArchitectureTemplate.py, src/templates/x86ArchitectureTemplate.py:
361 Refactor _emerge to remove duplicate code. Refactor mkfs code in backend to
362 only have a single spawn call.
363
364 11 Jun 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
365 refixed samyron's fix of set_architecture_template.
366
367 11 Jun 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
368 Move /tmp/spawn.sh and /tmp/post-install to /var/tmp since that should always
369 be executable.
370
371 10 Jun 2005; Scott Myron <samyron@gentoo.org>
372 Fixed one of the FIXME's in the ClientConfiguration. There is now some
373 error checking when you call set_architecture_template.
374
375 10 Jun 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
376 moved the mkfsopts input to the partition options menu instead of the during
377 the creation process. updated GenDialog to say it supports reiserfs v3.
378
379 9 Jun 2005; Robin H. Johnson <robbat2@gentoo.org> src/GLIInstallProfile.py,
380 src/GLIStorageDevice.py, fe/dialog/dialogfe.py:

386 9 Jun 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
387 Removed start/end from XML output and added mkfsopts to partitioning info.
388 'mkfsopts' parameter is now used and support for creating xfs, jfs, and
389 reiserfs is now in (patch from robbat2). Change '_parser' to 'self._parser'
390 in GLIClientConfiguration. Change from .1 and .9 to constants for
391 partitioning. Fix free space overwriting bug. Remove a few unused functions
392 from rewrite. Fix call to get_partition_at()
