225 Add dhcp_options to the CC, CConfig, and GenDialog. More overall changes to
226 GenDialog as it gets closer to completion.
227
228 22 Jun 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>

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

252
253 16 Jun 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
254 Backend partitioning will create disklabel is none exists. Installprofile
255 defaults to "" now instead of "msdos" for disklabel type. Fix for
256 mount_local_partitions() to remember device along with minor in the
257 parts_to_mount dict (closes #96319). mount_local_partitions() cleanups and
258 add else block to log unsupported netmount types to mount_network_shares()
259
260 15 Jun 2005; Robin H. Johnson <robbat2@gentoo.org>

273 spawned script, to allow for catching all errors.
274
275 15 Jun 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
276 fixed up build_kernel in ArchTemplate for build_mode as well as in dialogfe
277 and GenDialog. other gendialog updates as well. kernel updates untested.
278
279 14 Jun 2005; Robin H. Johnson <robbat2@gentoo.org>
280 src/GLIInstallProfile.py:
281 Change structure of etc-portage stuff. The serialization was broken before my
282 last commit, and I am the only person that's ever used it. The new schema is
283 as follows:
284 <etc-portage>
285 <file name="package.mask"/>
286 <file name="package.unmask">
287 <entry atom="sys-kernel/openmosix-sources"/>
288 </file>
289 <file name="package.use">
290 <entry atom="sys-libs/db">
291 -java
292 </entry>
293 <entry atom="dev-libs/cyrus-sasl">
294 -ldap
295 </entry>
296 </file>
297 </etc-portage>
298
299
300 13 Jun 2005; Robin H. Johnson <robbat2@gentoo.org>
301 src/GLIInstallProfile.py:
302 Add new entry for gli-profile/kernel-build-method item. Add missing
303 serialize_etc_portage (temporary). Make serialize_make_conf always print the
304 keys in the same order.
305
306 13 Jun 2005; Robin H. Johnson <robbat2@gentoo.org>
307 src/GLIArchitectureTemplate.py:
308 Clean up commenting used by _edit_config(), and fix bug where wrong comment
309 was repeatedly appended to make.conf.
310
311 13 Jun 2005; Robin H. Johnson <robbat2@gentoo.org>
312 src/GLIArchitectureTemplate.py:
313 Put some Linux-2.6 specific code under a if statement. Store list of
314 successfully mounted swap device for using swapoff. Add proper error checking
315 to install_packages and install_filesystem_tools. Fixed namespace conflicts on
316 'file'. Clean up some redundant code (thanks to pychecker).'
317
318 13 Jun 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
319 Fix typos: get_extended() instead of get_extended_partition(). Added
320 list_mirrors() and list_stage_tarballs_from_mirror() functions to GLIUtility.
321 Change _emerge("sync") call to direct call to spawn to avoid 'emerge -k sync'
322
323 12 Jun 2005; John N. Laliberte <allanonjl@gentoo.org>
324 GLIInstallProfile.py: add missing set for dhcp_options if a tuple is passed
325 in add_network_interface.
326
327 12 Jun 2005; Robin H. Johnson <robbat2@gentoo.org> src/GLIArchitectureTemplate.py:
328 ensure PORTAGE_TMPDIR/PORT_LOGDIR/PORTDIR_OVERLAY/PKGDIR exist prior to any
329 usage - this caused a failure for stage1/stage2 previously. swapoff for swap
330 space at end of install. Mount /dev, /dev/shm, /dev/pts and /sys during
331 prepare_chroot.
332
333 11 Jun 2005; Robin H. Johnson <robbat2@gentoo.org> +src/cli/clife.py,
334 +src/cli/README, +src/fe/installer-cli, +src/fe/installer-dialog,

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

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