205 Add dhcp_options to the CC, CConfig, and GenDialog. More overall changes to
206 GenDialog as it gets closer to completion.
207
208 22 Jun 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>

210 instead of int() in add_partition_device_partition() for minor (closes 96804)
211
212 21 Jun 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
213 Changed setup_network_post to check for 'interfaces[interface][0] != "dhcp"'
214 instead of 'interfaces[interface][1]' since DHCP uses that field for its
215 options. setup_network_post() writes custom DHCP options to /etc/conf.d/net.
216
217 20 Jun 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
218 Apply spawn() patch from #96644 (with minor changes). Make sure the return

231 get subarch.
232
233 16 Jun 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
234 Backend partitioning will create disklabel is none exists. Installprofile
235 defaults to "" now instead of "msdos" for disklabel type. Fix for
236 mount_local_partitions() to remember device along with minor in the
237 parts_to_mount dict (closes #96319). mount_local_partitions() cleanups and
238 add else block to log unsupported netmount types to mount_network_shares()
239
240 15 Jun 2005; Robin H. Johnson <robbat2@gentoo.org>

250 2.4 support (pull version data from /usr/src/linux/Makefile), incl.
251 'make dep' call for custom compile. build_mode support for prepare-only and
252 none types completed. custom compile function chains shell functions in
253 spawned script, to allow for catching all errors.
254
255 15 Jun 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
256 fixed up build_kernel in ArchTemplate for build_mode as well as in dialogfe
257 and GenDialog. other gendialog updates as well. kernel updates untested.
258
259 14 Jun 2005; Robin H. Johnson <robbat2@gentoo.org>
260 src/GLIInstallProfile.py:
261 Change structure of etc-portage stuff. The serialization was broken before my
262 last commit, and I am the only person that's ever used it. The new schema is
263 as follows:
264 <etc-portage>
265 <file name="package.mask"/>
266 <file name="package.unmask">
267 <entry atom="sys-kernel/openmosix-sources"/>
268 </file>
269 <file name="package.use">
270 <entry atom="sys-libs/db">
271 -java
272 </entry>
273 <entry atom="dev-libs/cyrus-sasl">
274 -ldap
275 </entry>
276 </file>
277 </etc-portage>
278
279
280 13 Jun 2005; Robin H. Johnson <robbat2@gentoo.org>
281 src/GLIInstallProfile.py:
282 Add new entry for gli-profile/kernel-build-method item. Add missing
283 serialize_etc_portage (temporary). Make serialize_make_conf always print the
284 keys in the same order.
285
286 13 Jun 2005; Robin H. Johnson <robbat2@gentoo.org>
287 src/GLIArchitectureTemplate.py:
288 Clean up commenting used by _edit_config(), and fix bug where wrong comment
289 was repeatedly appended to make.conf.
290
291 13 Jun 2005; Robin H. Johnson <robbat2@gentoo.org>
292 src/GLIArchitectureTemplate.py:
293 Put some Linux-2.6 specific code under a if statement. Store list of
294 successfully mounted swap device for using swapoff. Add proper error checking
295 to install_packages and install_filesystem_tools. Fixed namespace conflicts on
296 'file'. Clean up some redundant code (thanks to pychecker).'
297
298 13 Jun 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
299 Fix typos: get_extended() instead of get_extended_partition(). Added
300 list_mirrors() and list_stage_tarballs_from_mirror() functions to GLIUtility.
301 Change _emerge("sync") call to direct call to spawn to avoid 'emerge -k sync'
302
303 12 Jun 2005; John N. Laliberte <allanonjl@gentoo.org>
304 GLIInstallProfile.py: add missing set for dhcp_options if a tuple is passed
305 in add_network_interface.
306
307 12 Jun 2005; Robin H. Johnson <robbat2@gentoo.org> src/GLIArchitectureTemplate.py:
308 ensure PORTAGE_TMPDIR/PORT_LOGDIR/PORTDIR_OVERLAY/PKGDIR exist prior to any
309 usage - this caused a failure for stage1/stage2 previously. swapoff for swap
310 space at end of install. Mount /dev, /dev/shm, /dev/pts and /sys during
311 prepare_chroot.
312
313 11 Jun 2005; Robin H. Johnson <robbat2@gentoo.org> +src/cli/clife.py,
314 +src/cli/README, +src/fe/installer-cli, +src/fe/installer-dialog,

317 use each frontend.

322 and should not be touched (netboot for example).
323
324 11 Jun 2005; Robin H. Johnson <robbat2@gentoo.org>
325 src/GLIArchitectureTemplate.py:
326 pcmcia is not a variable name for a call to _add_to_runlevel, it should be a
327 string!. Try to use binary packages if available by default.
328
329 11 Jun 2005; Robin H. Johnson <robbat2@gentoo.org>
330 src/GLIArchitectureTemplate.py:
331 More error checking for _add_to_runlevel, to ensure that the init script
332 actually exists before we try to add it. set_services phase must take place
333 after the package installation, otherwise the init scripts might not exist.
334 Find the correct init script for the cron and logging daemons, and add that
335 instead of the package atom.
336
337 11 Jun 2005; Robin H. Johnson <robbat2@gentoo.org>
338 src/GLIArchitectureTemplate.py:
339 Fix up _edit_config so that it works if the file doesn't already exist. Fix
340 usage of 'file' to 'contents' for the variable name, as it shadows
341 __builtin__.file.
342
343 11 Jun 2005; Robin H. Johnson <robbat2@gentoo.org>
344 src/GLIArchitectureTemplate.py:
345 Add MTA install code, and include MTA install phase. Ensure
346 PORT_LOGDIR/PORTDIR_OVERLAY are created in _emerge if needed. Add support
347 for 'none' kernel config for build_kernel phase. Put kernel_script in
348 /var/tmp instead of /root for build_kernel phase.
349
350 11 Jun 2005; Robin H. Johnson <robbat2@gentoo.org> src/GLIInstallProfile.py:
351 Rename mta variables to match syslog/cron variables.
352
353 11 Jun 2005; Robin H. Johnson <robbat2@gentoo.org>
354 src/GLIArchitectureTemplate.py, src/templates/x86ArchitectureTemplate.py,
355 src/.cvsignore, src/fe/dialog/.cvsignore, src/fe/gtk/.cvsignore,
356 src/fe/net/client/.cvsignore, src/fe/net/server/.cvsignore,
357 src/templates/.cvsignore, src/tests/.cvsignore:
358 Refactor partition formatting again to include error checking. Allow 'none'
359 for kernel and bootloader specifications. Add .cvsignore files for .py[co].
360
361 11 Jun 2005; Robin H. Johnson <robbat2@gentoo.org>
362 src/GLIArchitectureTemplate.py, src/templates/x86ArchitectureTemplate.py:
363 Refactor _emerge to remove duplicate code. Refactor mkfs code in backend to
364 only have a single spawn call.
365
366 11 Jun 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
367 refixed samyron's fix of set_architecture_template.
368
369 11 Jun 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
370 Move /tmp/spawn.sh and /tmp/post-install to /var/tmp since that should always
371 be executable.
372
373 10 Jun 2005; Scott Myron <samyron@gentoo.org>
374 Fixed one of the FIXME's in the ClientConfiguration. There is now some
375 error checking when you call set_architecture_template.
376
377 10 Jun 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
378 moved the mkfsopts input to the partition options menu instead of the during
379 the creation process. updated GenDialog to say it supports reiserfs v3.
380
381 9 Jun 2005; Robin H. Johnson <robbat2@gentoo.org> src/GLIInstallProfile.py,
382 src/GLIStorageDevice.py, fe/dialog/dialogfe.py:

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