181 function is called twice on the same file.
182
183 29 Jun 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
184 Missing \ in sed in _get_packages_to_emerge()

200 attempt at fixing rc.conf function. moved 3 generate functions out of
201 fe/gtk/RcDotConf and put them in Utility. fixed self bug.
202 added dialog.py to the fe/dialog directory so it actually gets used.
203
204 27 Jun 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>

212 added dialog.py to /src temporarily until it gets accepted upstream.
213 fix for unused value in form in dialog.py and changed heights.

224 Add dhcp_options to the CC, CConfig, and GenDialog. More overall changes to
225 GenDialog as it gets closer to completion.
226
227 22 Jun 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>

229 instead of int() in add_partition_device_partition() for minor (closes 96804)
230
231 21 Jun 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
232 Changed setup_network_post to check for 'interfaces[interface][0] != "dhcp"'
233 instead of 'interfaces[interface][1]' since DHCP uses that field for its
234 options. setup_network_post() writes custom DHCP options to /etc/conf.d/net.
235
236 20 Jun 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
237 Apply spawn() patch from #96644 (with minor changes). Make sure the return

250 get subarch.
251
252 16 Jun 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
253 Backend partitioning will create disklabel is none exists. Installprofile
254 defaults to "" now instead of "msdos" for disklabel type. Fix for
255 mount_local_partitions() to remember device along with minor in the
256 parts_to_mount dict (closes #96319). mount_local_partitions() cleanups and
257 add else block to log unsupported netmount types to mount_network_shares()
258
259 15 Jun 2005; Robin H. Johnson <robbat2@gentoo.org>

269 2.4 support (pull version data from /usr/src/linux/Makefile), incl.
270 'make dep' call for custom compile. build_mode support for prepare-only and
271 none types completed. custom compile function chains shell functions in
272 spawned script, to allow for catching all errors.
273
274 15 Jun 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
275 fixed up build_kernel in ArchTemplate for build_mode as well as in dialogfe
276 and GenDialog. other gendialog updates as well. kernel updates untested.
277
278 14 Jun 2005; Robin H. Johnson <robbat2@gentoo.org>
279 src/GLIInstallProfile.py:
280 Change structure of etc-portage stuff. The serialization was broken before my
281 last commit, and I am the only person that's ever used it. The new schema is
282 as follows:
283 <etc-portage>
284 <file name="package.mask"/>
285 <file name="package.unmask">
286 <entry atom="sys-kernel/openmosix-sources"/>
287 </file>
288 <file name="package.use">
289 <entry atom="sys-libs/db">
290 -java
291 </entry>
292 <entry atom="dev-libs/cyrus-sasl">
293 -ldap
294 </entry>
295 </file>
296 </etc-portage>
297
298
299 13 Jun 2005; Robin H. Johnson <robbat2@gentoo.org>
300 src/GLIInstallProfile.py:
301 Add new entry for gli-profile/kernel-build-method item. Add missing
302 serialize_etc_portage (temporary). Make serialize_make_conf always print the
303 keys in the same order.
304
305 13 Jun 2005; Robin H. Johnson <robbat2@gentoo.org>
306 src/GLIArchitectureTemplate.py:
307 Clean up commenting used by _edit_config(), and fix bug where wrong comment
308 was repeatedly appended to make.conf.
309
310 13 Jun 2005; Robin H. Johnson <robbat2@gentoo.org>
311 src/GLIArchitectureTemplate.py:
312 Put some Linux-2.6 specific code under a if statement. Store list of
313 successfully mounted swap device for using swapoff. Add proper error checking
314 to install_packages and install_filesystem_tools. Fixed namespace conflicts on
315 'file'. Clean up some redundant code (thanks to pychecker).'
316
317 13 Jun 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
318 Fix typos: get_extended() instead of get_extended_partition(). Added
319 list_mirrors() and list_stage_tarballs_from_mirror() functions to GLIUtility.
320 Change _emerge("sync") call to direct call to spawn to avoid 'emerge -k sync'
321
322 12 Jun 2005; John N. Laliberte <allanonjl@gentoo.org>
323 GLIInstallProfile.py: add missing set for dhcp_options if a tuple is passed
324 in add_network_interface.
325
326 12 Jun 2005; Robin H. Johnson <robbat2@gentoo.org> src/GLIArchitectureTemplate.py:
327 ensure PORTAGE_TMPDIR/PORT_LOGDIR/PORTDIR_OVERLAY/PKGDIR exist prior to any
328 usage - this caused a failure for stage1/stage2 previously. swapoff for swap
329 space at end of install. Mount /dev, /dev/shm, /dev/pts and /sys during
330 prepare_chroot.
331
332 11 Jun 2005; Robin H. Johnson <robbat2@gentoo.org> +src/cli/clife.py,
333 +src/cli/README, +src/fe/installer-cli, +src/fe/installer-dialog,

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

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