178

220 Add dhcp_options to the CC, CConfig, and GenDialog. More overall changes to
221 GenDialog as it gets closer to completion.
222
223 22 Jun 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>

225 instead of int() in add_partition_device_partition() for minor (closes 96804)
226
227 21 Jun 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
228 Changed setup_network_post to check for 'interfaces[interface][0] != "dhcp"'
229 instead of 'interfaces[interface][1]' since DHCP uses that field for its
230 options. setup_network_post() writes custom DHCP options to /etc/conf.d/net.
231
232 20 Jun 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
233 Apply spawn() patch from #96644 (with minor changes). Make sure the return

246 get subarch.
247
248 16 Jun 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
249 Backend partitioning will create disklabel is none exists. Installprofile
250 defaults to "" now instead of "msdos" for disklabel type. Fix for
251 mount_local_partitions() to remember device along with minor in the
252 parts_to_mount dict (closes #96319). mount_local_partitions() cleanups and
253 add else block to log unsupported netmount types to mount_network_shares()
254
255 15 Jun 2005; Robin H. Johnson <robbat2@gentoo.org>

265 2.4 support (pull version data from /usr/src/linux/Makefile), incl.
266 'make dep' call for custom compile. build_mode support for prepare-only and
267 none types completed. custom compile function chains shell functions in
268 spawned script, to allow for catching all errors.
269
270 15 Jun 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
271 fixed up build_kernel in ArchTemplate for build_mode as well as in dialogfe
272 and GenDialog. other gendialog updates as well. kernel updates untested.
273
274 14 Jun 2005; Robin H. Johnson <robbat2@gentoo.org>
275 src/GLIInstallProfile.py:
276 Change structure of etc-portage stuff. The serialization was broken before my
277 last commit, and I am the only person that's ever used it. The new schema is
278 as follows:
279 <etc-portage>
280 <file name="package.mask"/>
281 <file name="package.unmask">
282 <entry atom="sys-kernel/openmosix-sources"/>
283 </file>
284 <file name="package.use">
285 <entry atom="sys-libs/db">
286 -java
287 </entry>
288 <entry atom="dev-libs/cyrus-sasl">
289 -ldap
290 </entry>
291 </file>
292 </etc-portage>
293
294
295 13 Jun 2005; Robin H. Johnson <robbat2@gentoo.org>
296 src/GLIInstallProfile.py:
297 Add new entry for gli-profile/kernel-build-method item. Add missing
298 serialize_etc_portage (temporary). Make serialize_make_conf always print the
299 keys in the same order.
300
301 13 Jun 2005; Robin H. Johnson <robbat2@gentoo.org>
302 src/GLIArchitectureTemplate.py:
303 Clean up commenting used by _edit_config(), and fix bug where wrong comment
304 was repeatedly appended to make.conf.
305
306 13 Jun 2005; Robin H. Johnson <robbat2@gentoo.org>
307 src/GLIArchitectureTemplate.py:
308 Put some Linux-2.6 specific code under a if statement. Store list of
309 successfully mounted swap device for using swapoff. Add proper error checking
310 to install_packages and install_filesystem_tools. Fixed namespace conflicts on
311 'file'. Clean up some redundant code (thanks to pychecker).'
312
313 13 Jun 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
314 Fix typos: get_extended() instead of get_extended_partition(). Added
315 list_mirrors() and list_stage_tarballs_from_mirror() functions to GLIUtility.
316 Change _emerge("sync") call to direct call to spawn to avoid 'emerge -k sync'
317
318 12 Jun 2005; John N. Laliberte <allanonjl@gentoo.org>
319 GLIInstallProfile.py: add missing set for dhcp_options if a tuple is passed
320 in add_network_interface.
321
322 12 Jun 2005; Robin H. Johnson <robbat2@gentoo.org> src/GLIArchitectureTemplate.py:
323 ensure PORTAGE_TMPDIR/PORT_LOGDIR/PORTDIR_OVERLAY/PKGDIR exist prior to any
324 usage - this caused a failure for stage1/stage2 previously. swapoff for swap
325 space at end of install. Mount /dev, /dev/shm, /dev/pts and /sys during
326 prepare_chroot.
327
328 11 Jun 2005; Robin H. Johnson <robbat2@gentoo.org> +src/cli/clife.py,
329 +src/cli/README, +src/fe/installer-cli, +src/fe/installer-dialog,

332 use each frontend.
333

337 and should not be touched (netboot for example).
338
339 11 Jun 2005; Robin H. Johnson <robbat2@gentoo.org>
340 src/GLIArchitectureTemplate.py:
341 pcmcia is not a variable name for a call to _add_to_runlevel, it should be a
342 string!. Try to use binary packages if available by default.
343
344 11 Jun 2005; Robin H. Johnson <robbat2@gentoo.org>
345 src/GLIArchitectureTemplate.py:
346 More error checking for _add_to_runlevel, to ensure that the init script
347 actually exists before we try to add it. set_services phase must take place
348 after the package installation, otherwise the init scripts might not exist.
349 Find the correct init script for the cron and logging daemons, and add that
350 instead of the package atom.
351
352 11 Jun 2005; Robin H. Johnson <robbat2@gentoo.org>
353 src/GLIArchitectureTemplate.py:
354 Fix up _edit_config so that it works if the file doesn't already exist. Fix
355 usage of 'file' to 'contents' for the variable name, as it shadows
356 __builtin__.file.
357
358 11 Jun 2005; Robin H. Johnson <robbat2@gentoo.org>
359 src/GLIArchitectureTemplate.py:
360 Add MTA install code, and include MTA install phase. Ensure
361 PORT_LOGDIR/PORTDIR_OVERLAY are created in _emerge if needed. Add support
362 for 'none' kernel config for build_kernel phase. Put kernel_script in
363 /var/tmp instead of /root for build_kernel phase.
364
365 11 Jun 2005; Robin H. Johnson <robbat2@gentoo.org> src/GLIInstallProfile.py:
366 Rename mta variables to match syslog/cron variables.
367
368 11 Jun 2005; Robin H. Johnson <robbat2@gentoo.org>
369 src/GLIArchitectureTemplate.py, src/templates/x86ArchitectureTemplate.py,
370 src/.cvsignore, src/fe/dialog/.cvsignore, src/fe/gtk/.cvsignore,
371 src/fe/net/client/.cvsignore, src/fe/net/server/.cvsignore,
372 src/templates/.cvsignore, src/tests/.cvsignore:
373 Refactor partition formatting again to include error checking. Allow 'none'
374 for kernel and bootloader specifications. Add .cvsignore files for .py[co].
375
376 11 Jun 2005; Robin H. Johnson <robbat2@gentoo.org>
377 src/GLIArchitectureTemplate.py, src/templates/x86ArchitectureTemplate.py:
378 Refactor _emerge to remove duplicate code. Refactor mkfs code in backend to
379 only have a single spawn call.
380
381 11 Jun 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
382 refixed samyron's fix of set_architecture_template.
383
384 11 Jun 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
385 Move /tmp/spawn.sh and /tmp/post-install to /var/tmp since that should always
386 be executable.
387
388 10 Jun 2005; Scott Myron <samyron@gentoo.org>
389 Fixed one of the FIXME's in the ClientConfiguration. There is now some
390 error checking when you call set_architecture_template.
391
392 10 Jun 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
393 moved the mkfsopts input to the partition options menu instead of the during
394 the creation process. updated GenDialog to say it supports reiserfs v3.
395
396 9 Jun 2005; Robin H. Johnson <robbat2@gentoo.org> src/GLIInstallProfile.py,
397 src/GLIStorageDevice.py, fe/dialog/dialogfe.py:
398 Complete support for 'mkfsopts' parameter in main system and dialogfe.
399 Add support for other partition types to dialogfe.
400 Fix all usages of int(possible_big_number) to long(possible_bit_number) to

402
403 9 Jun 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
404 Removed start/end from XML output and added mkfsopts to partitioning info.
405 'mkfsopts' parameter is now used and support for creating xfs, jfs, and
406 reiserfs is now in (patch from robbat2). Change '_parser' to 'self._parser'
407 in GLIClientConfiguration. Change from .1 and .9 to constants for
408 partitioning. Fix free space overwriting bug. Remove a few unused functions
409 from rewrite. Fix call to get_partition_at()
