158 src/templates/x86ArchitectureTemplate.py:
159 Refactor install_bootloader code and _install_{grub,lilo} so that 'none' for

188 function is called twice on the same file.
189
190 29 Jun 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
191 Missing \ in sed in _get_packages_to_emerge()

207 attempt at fixing rc.conf function. moved 3 generate functions out of
208 fe/gtk/RcDotConf and put them in Utility. fixed self bug.
209 added dialog.py to the fe/dialog directory so it actually gets used.
210
211 27 Jun 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>

233
234 22 Jun 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>

236 instead of int() in add_partition_device_partition() for minor (closes 96804)
237
238 21 Jun 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
239 Changed setup_network_post to check for 'interfaces[interface][0] != "dhcp"'
240 instead of 'interfaces[interface][1]' since DHCP uses that field for its
241 options. setup_network_post() writes custom DHCP options to /etc/conf.d/net.
242
243 20 Jun 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
244 Apply spawn() patch from #96644 (with minor changes). Make sure the return

257 get subarch.
258
259 16 Jun 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
260 Backend partitioning will create disklabel is none exists. Installprofile
261 defaults to "" now instead of "msdos" for disklabel type. Fix for
262 mount_local_partitions() to remember device along with minor in the
263 parts_to_mount dict (closes #96319). mount_local_partitions() cleanups and
264 add else block to log unsupported netmount types to mount_network_shares()
265
266 15 Jun 2005; Robin H. Johnson <robbat2@gentoo.org>

276 2.4 support (pull version data from /usr/src/linux/Makefile), incl.
277 'make dep' call for custom compile. build_mode support for prepare-only and
278 none types completed. custom compile function chains shell functions in
279 spawned script, to allow for catching all errors.
280
281 15 Jun 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
282 fixed up build_kernel in ArchTemplate for build_mode as well as in dialogfe
283 and GenDialog. other gendialog updates as well. kernel updates untested.
284
285 14 Jun 2005; Robin H. Johnson <robbat2@gentoo.org>
286 src/GLIInstallProfile.py:
287 Change structure of etc-portage stuff. The serialization was broken before my
288 last commit, and I am the only person that's ever used it. The new schema is
289 as follows:
290 <etc-portage>
291 <file name="package.mask"/>
292 <file name="package.unmask">
293 <entry atom="sys-kernel/openmosix-sources"/>
294 </file>
295 <file name="package.use">
296 <entry atom="sys-libs/db">
297 -java
298 </entry>
299 <entry atom="dev-libs/cyrus-sasl">
300 -ldap
301 </entry>
302 </file>
303 </etc-portage>
304
305
306 13 Jun 2005; Robin H. Johnson <robbat2@gentoo.org>
307 src/GLIInstallProfile.py:
308 Add new entry for gli-profile/kernel-build-method item. Add missing
309 serialize_etc_portage (temporary). Make serialize_make_conf always print the
310 keys in the same order.
311
312 13 Jun 2005; Robin H. Johnson <robbat2@gentoo.org>
313 src/GLIArchitectureTemplate.py:
314 Clean up commenting used by _edit_config(), and fix bug where wrong comment
315 was repeatedly appended to make.conf.
316
317 13 Jun 2005; Robin H. Johnson <robbat2@gentoo.org>
318 src/GLIArchitectureTemplate.py:
319 Put some Linux-2.6 specific code under a if statement. Store list of
320 successfully mounted swap device for using swapoff. Add proper error checking
321 to install_packages and install_filesystem_tools. Fixed namespace conflicts on
322 'file'. Clean up some redundant code (thanks to pychecker).'
323
324 13 Jun 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
325 Fix typos: get_extended() instead of get_extended_partition(). Added
326 list_mirrors() and list_stage_tarballs_from_mirror() functions to GLIUtility.
327 Change _emerge("sync") call to direct call to spawn to avoid 'emerge -k sync'
328
329 12 Jun 2005; John N. Laliberte <allanonjl@gentoo.org>
330 GLIInstallProfile.py: add missing set for dhcp_options if a tuple is passed
331 in add_network_interface.
332
333 12 Jun 2005; Robin H. Johnson <robbat2@gentoo.org> src/GLIArchitectureTemplate.py:
334 ensure PORTAGE_TMPDIR/PORT_LOGDIR/PORTDIR_OVERLAY/PKGDIR exist prior to any
335 usage - this caused a failure for stage1/stage2 previously. swapoff for swap
336 space at end of install. Mount /dev, /dev/shm, /dev/pts and /sys during
337 prepare_chroot.
338
339 11 Jun 2005; Robin H. Johnson <robbat2@gentoo.org> +src/cli/clife.py,
340 +src/cli/README, +src/fe/installer-cli, +src/fe/installer-dialog,
341 +src/fe/installer-gtk:
342 Add new automated CLI frontend. Add scripts that are the intended means to
343 use each frontend.
344
345 11 Jun 2005; Robin H. Johnson <robbat2@gentoo.org>
346 src/GLIClientController.py:
347 Add null type to network config, for cases where the interface is already up
348 and should not be touched (netboot for example).
349
350 11 Jun 2005; Robin H. Johnson <robbat2@gentoo.org>
351 src/GLIArchitectureTemplate.py:
352 pcmcia is not a variable name for a call to _add_to_runlevel, it should be a
353 string!. Try to use binary packages if available by default.
354
355 11 Jun 2005; Robin H. Johnson <robbat2@gentoo.org>
356 src/GLIArchitectureTemplate.py:
357 More error checking for _add_to_runlevel, to ensure that the init script
358 actually exists before we try to add it. set_services phase must take place
359 after the package installation, otherwise the init scripts might not exist.
360 Find the correct init script for the cron and logging daemons, and add that
361 instead of the package atom.
362
363 11 Jun 2005; Robin H. Johnson <robbat2@gentoo.org>
364 src/GLIArchitectureTemplate.py:
365 Fix up _edit_config so that it works if the file doesn't already exist. Fix
366 usage of 'file' to 'contents' for the variable name, as it shadows
367 __builtin__.file.
368
369 11 Jun 2005; Robin H. Johnson <robbat2@gentoo.org>
370 src/GLIArchitectureTemplate.py:
371 Add MTA install code, and include MTA install phase. Ensure
372 PORT_LOGDIR/PORTDIR_OVERLAY are created in _emerge if needed. Add support
373 for 'none' kernel config for build_kernel phase. Put kernel_script in
374 /var/tmp instead of /root for build_kernel phase.
375
376 11 Jun 2005; Robin H. Johnson <robbat2@gentoo.org> src/GLIInstallProfile.py:
377 Rename mta variables to match syslog/cron variables.
378
379 11 Jun 2005; Robin H. Johnson <robbat2@gentoo.org>
380 src/GLIArchitectureTemplate.py, src/templates/x86ArchitectureTemplate.py,
381 src/.cvsignore, src/fe/dialog/.cvsignore, src/fe/gtk/.cvsignore,
382 src/fe/net/client/.cvsignore, src/fe/net/server/.cvsignore,
383 src/templates/.cvsignore, src/tests/.cvsignore:
384 Refactor partition formatting again to include error checking. Allow 'none'
385 for kernel and bootloader specifications. Add .cvsignore files for .py[co].
386
387 11 Jun 2005; Robin H. Johnson <robbat2@gentoo.org>
388 src/GLIArchitectureTemplate.py, src/templates/x86ArchitectureTemplate.py:
389 Refactor _emerge to remove duplicate code. Refactor mkfs code in backend to
390 only have a single spawn call.
391
392 11 Jun 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
393 refixed samyron's fix of set_architecture_template.
394
395 11 Jun 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
396 Move /tmp/spawn.sh and /tmp/post-install to /var/tmp since that should always
397 be executable.
398
399 10 Jun 2005; Scott Myron <samyron@gentoo.org>
400 Fixed one of the FIXME's in the ClientConfiguration. There is now some
401 error checking when you call set_architecture_template.
402
403 10 Jun 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
404 moved the mkfsopts input to the partition options menu instead of the during
405 the creation process. updated GenDialog to say it supports reiserfs v3.
406
407 9 Jun 2005; Robin H. Johnson <robbat2@gentoo.org> src/GLIInstallProfile.py,
408 src/GLIStorageDevice.py, fe/dialog/dialogfe.py:
409 Complete support for 'mkfsopts' parameter in main system and dialogfe.
410 Add support for other partition types to dialogfe.
411 Fix all usages of int(possible_big_number) to long(possible_bit_number) to
412 avoid integer overflows and wraparounds.
413
414 9 Jun 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
415 Removed start/end from XML output and added mkfsopts to partitioning info.
416 'mkfsopts' parameter is now used and support for creating xfs, jfs, and
417 reiserfs is now in (patch from robbat2). Change '_parser' to 'self._parser'
418 in GLIClientConfiguration. Change from .1 and .9 to constants for
419 partitioning. Fix free space overwriting bug. Remove a few unused functions
420 from rewrite. Fix call to get_partition_at()
