128 function is called twice on the same file.
129
130 29 Jun 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
131 Missing \ in sed in _get_packages_to_emerge()

173
174 22 Jun 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
175 Modify get_eth_info() to take a full interface name (eth0 fex). float()
176 instead of int() in add_partition_device_partition() for minor (closes 96804)
177
178 21 Jun 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
179 Changed setup_network_post to check for 'interfaces[interface][0] != "dhcp"'
180 instead of 'interfaces[interface][1]' since DHCP uses that field for its
181 options. setup_network_post() writes custom DHCP options to /etc/conf.d/net.
182
183 20 Jun 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
184 Apply spawn() patch from #96644 (with minor changes). Make sure the return

197 get subarch.
198
199 16 Jun 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
200 Backend partitioning will create disklabel is none exists. Installprofile
201 defaults to "" now instead of "msdos" for disklabel type. Fix for
202 mount_local_partitions() to remember device along with minor in the
203 parts_to_mount dict (closes #96319). mount_local_partitions() cleanups and
204 add else block to log unsupported netmount types to mount_network_shares()
205
206 15 Jun 2005; Robin H. Johnson <robbat2@gentoo.org>

216 2.4 support (pull version data from /usr/src/linux/Makefile), incl.
217 'make dep' call for custom compile. build_mode support for prepare-only and
218 none types completed. custom compile function chains shell functions in
219 spawned script, to allow for catching all errors.
220
221 15 Jun 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
222 fixed up build_kernel in ArchTemplate for build_mode as well as in dialogfe
223 and GenDialog. other gendialog updates as well. kernel updates untested.
224
225 14 Jun 2005; Robin H. Johnson <robbat2@gentoo.org>
226 src/GLIInstallProfile.py:
227 Change structure of etc-portage stuff. The serialization was broken before my
228 last commit, and I am the only person that's ever used it. The new schema is
229 as follows:
230 <etc-portage>
231 <file name="package.mask"/>
232 <file name="package.unmask">
233 <entry atom="sys-kernel/openmosix-sources"/>
234 </file>
235 <file name="package.use">
236 <entry atom="sys-libs/db">
237 -java
238 </entry>
239 <entry atom="dev-libs/cyrus-sasl">
240 -ldap
241 </entry>
242 </file>
243 </etc-portage>
244
245
246 13 Jun 2005; Robin H. Johnson <robbat2@gentoo.org>
247 src/GLIInstallProfile.py:
248 Add new entry for gli-profile/kernel-build-method item. Add missing
249 serialize_etc_portage (temporary). Make serialize_make_conf always print the
250 keys in the same order.
251
252 13 Jun 2005; Robin H. Johnson <robbat2@gentoo.org>
253 src/GLIArchitectureTemplate.py:
254 Clean up commenting used by _edit_config(), and fix bug where wrong comment
255 was repeatedly appended to make.conf.
256
257 13 Jun 2005; Robin H. Johnson <robbat2@gentoo.org>
258 src/GLIArchitectureTemplate.py:
259 Put some Linux-2.6 specific code under a if statement. Store list of
260 successfully mounted swap device for using swapoff. Add proper error checking
261 to install_packages and install_filesystem_tools. Fixed namespace conflicts on
262 'file'. Clean up some redundant code (thanks to pychecker).'
263
264 13 Jun 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
265 Fix typos: get_extended() instead of get_extended_partition(). Added
266 list_mirrors() and list_stage_tarballs_from_mirror() functions to GLIUtility.
267 Change _emerge("sync") call to direct call to spawn to avoid 'emerge -k sync'
268
269 12 Jun 2005; John N. Laliberte <allanonjl@gentoo.org>
270 GLIInstallProfile.py: add missing set for dhcp_options if a tuple is passed
271 in add_network_interface.
272
273 12 Jun 2005; Robin H. Johnson <robbat2@gentoo.org> src/GLIArchitectureTemplate.py:
274 ensure PORTAGE_TMPDIR/PORT_LOGDIR/PORTDIR_OVERLAY/PKGDIR exist prior to any
275 usage - this caused a failure for stage1/stage2 previously. swapoff for swap
276 space at end of install. Mount /dev, /dev/shm, /dev/pts and /sys during
277 prepare_chroot.
278
279 11 Jun 2005; Robin H. Johnson <robbat2@gentoo.org> +src/cli/clife.py,
280 +src/cli/README, +src/fe/installer-cli, +src/fe/installer-dialog,

283 use each frontend.
284
285 11 Jun 2005; Robin H. Johnson <robbat2@gentoo.org>

288 and should not be touched (netboot for example).
289
290 11 Jun 2005; Robin H. Johnson <robbat2@gentoo.org>
291 src/GLIArchitectureTemplate.py:
292 pcmcia is not a variable name for a call to _add_to_runlevel, it should be a
293 string!. Try to use binary packages if available by default.
294
295 11 Jun 2005; Robin H. Johnson <robbat2@gentoo.org>
296 src/GLIArchitectureTemplate.py:
297 More error checking for _add_to_runlevel, to ensure that the init script
298 actually exists before we try to add it. set_services phase must take place
299 after the package installation, otherwise the init scripts might not exist.
300 Find the correct init script for the cron and logging daemons, and add that
301 instead of the package atom.
302
303 11 Jun 2005; Robin H. Johnson <robbat2@gentoo.org>
304 src/GLIArchitectureTemplate.py:
305 Fix up _edit_config so that it works if the file doesn't already exist. Fix
306 usage of 'file' to 'contents' for the variable name, as it shadows
307 __builtin__.file.
308
309 11 Jun 2005; Robin H. Johnson <robbat2@gentoo.org>
310 src/GLIArchitectureTemplate.py:
311 Add MTA install code, and include MTA install phase. Ensure
312 PORT_LOGDIR/PORTDIR_OVERLAY are created in _emerge if needed. Add support
313 for 'none' kernel config for build_kernel phase. Put kernel_script in
314 /var/tmp instead of /root for build_kernel phase.
315
316 11 Jun 2005; Robin H. Johnson <robbat2@gentoo.org> src/GLIInstallProfile.py:
317 Rename mta variables to match syslog/cron variables.
318
319 11 Jun 2005; Robin H. Johnson <robbat2@gentoo.org>
320 src/GLIArchitectureTemplate.py, src/templates/x86ArchitectureTemplate.py,
321 src/.cvsignore, src/fe/dialog/.cvsignore, src/fe/gtk/.cvsignore,
322 src/fe/net/client/.cvsignore, src/fe/net/server/.cvsignore,
323 src/templates/.cvsignore, src/tests/.cvsignore:
324 Refactor partition formatting again to include error checking. Allow 'none'
325 for kernel and bootloader specifications. Add .cvsignore files for .py[co].
326
327 11 Jun 2005; Robin H. Johnson <robbat2@gentoo.org>
328 src/GLIArchitectureTemplate.py, src/templates/x86ArchitectureTemplate.py:
329 Refactor _emerge to remove duplicate code. Refactor mkfs code in backend to
330 only have a single spawn call.
331
332 11 Jun 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
333 refixed samyron's fix of set_architecture_template.
334
335 11 Jun 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
336 Move /tmp/spawn.sh and /tmp/post-install to /var/tmp since that should always
337 be executable.
338
339 10 Jun 2005; Scott Myron <samyron@gentoo.org>
340 Fixed one of the FIXME's in the ClientConfiguration. There is now some
341 error checking when you call set_architecture_template.
342
343 10 Jun 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
344 moved the mkfsopts input to the partition options menu instead of the during
345 the creation process. updated GenDialog to say it supports reiserfs v3.
346
347 9 Jun 2005; Robin H. Johnson <robbat2@gentoo.org> src/GLIInstallProfile.py,
348 src/GLIStorageDevice.py, fe/dialog/dialogfe.py:

350 Add support for other partition types to dialogfe.
351 Fix all usages of int(possible_big_number) to long(possible_bit_number) to
352 avoid integer overflows and wraparounds.
353
354 9 Jun 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
355 Removed start/end from XML output and added mkfsopts to partitioning info.
356 'mkfsopts' parameter is now used and support for creating xfs, jfs, and
357 reiserfs is now in (patch from robbat2). Change '_parser' to 'self._parser'
358 in GLIClientConfiguration. Change from .1 and .9 to constants for
359 partitioning. Fix free space overwriting bug. Remove a few unused functions
360 from rewrite. Fix call to get_partition_at()
