37 src/GLIInstallProfile.py:
38 Fix codeman's screwup of changing the service seperator to ',' in the parser
39 without changing it in the serialization code! Also document this in a
40 comment so you find it easier. Everybody needs to make sure they update
41 their install profiles!

85 function is called twice on the same file.
86
87 29 Jun 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
88 Missing \ in sed in _get_packages_to_emerge()

128 Add dhcp_options to the CC, CConfig, and GenDialog. More overall changes to
129 GenDialog as it gets closer to completion.
130
131 22 Jun 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
132 Modify get_eth_info() to take a full interface name (eth0 fex). float()
133 instead of int() in add_partition_device_partition() for minor (closes 96804)
134
135 21 Jun 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
136 Changed setup_network_post to check for 'interfaces[interface][0] != "dhcp"'
137 instead of 'interfaces[interface][1]' since DHCP uses that field for its
138 options. setup_network_post() writes custom DHCP options to /etc/conf.d/net.
139
140 20 Jun 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
141 Apply spawn() patch from #96644 (with minor changes). Make sure the return

154 get subarch.
155
156 16 Jun 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
157 Backend partitioning will create disklabel is none exists. Installprofile
158 defaults to "" now instead of "msdos" for disklabel type. Fix for
159 mount_local_partitions() to remember device along with minor in the
160 parts_to_mount dict (closes #96319). mount_local_partitions() cleanups and
161 add else block to log unsupported netmount types to mount_network_shares()
162
163 15 Jun 2005; Robin H. Johnson <robbat2@gentoo.org>
164 src/GLIArchitectureTemplate.py:
165 Refactor kernel_compile common stuff, fix 2.4 build process.

173 2.4 support (pull version data from /usr/src/linux/Makefile), incl.
174 'make dep' call for custom compile. build_mode support for prepare-only and
175 none types completed. custom compile function chains shell functions in
176 spawned script, to allow for catching all errors.
177
178 15 Jun 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
179 fixed up build_kernel in ArchTemplate for build_mode as well as in dialogfe
180 and GenDialog. other gendialog updates as well. kernel updates untested.
181
182 14 Jun 2005; Robin H. Johnson <robbat2@gentoo.org>
183 src/GLIInstallProfile.py:
184 Change structure of etc-portage stuff. The serialization was broken before my
185 last commit, and I am the only person that's ever used it. The new schema is
186 as follows:
187 <etc-portage>
188 <file name="package.mask"/>
189 <file name="package.unmask">
190 <entry atom="sys-kernel/openmosix-sources"/>
191 </file>
192 <file name="package.use">
193 <entry atom="sys-libs/db">
194 -java
195 </entry>
196 <entry atom="dev-libs/cyrus-sasl">
197 -ldap
198 </entry>
199 </file>
200 </etc-portage>
201
202
203 13 Jun 2005; Robin H. Johnson <robbat2@gentoo.org>
204 src/GLIInstallProfile.py:
205 Add new entry for gli-profile/kernel-build-method item. Add missing
206 serialize_etc_portage (temporary). Make serialize_make_conf always print the
207 keys in the same order.
208
209 13 Jun 2005; Robin H. Johnson <robbat2@gentoo.org>
210 src/GLIArchitectureTemplate.py:
211 Clean up commenting used by _edit_config(), and fix bug where wrong comment
212 was repeatedly appended to make.conf.
213
214 13 Jun 2005; Robin H. Johnson <robbat2@gentoo.org>
215 src/GLIArchitectureTemplate.py:
216 Put some Linux-2.6 specific code under a if statement. Store list of
217 successfully mounted swap device for using swapoff. Add proper error checking
218 to install_packages and install_filesystem_tools. Fixed namespace conflicts on
219 'file'. Clean up some redundant code (thanks to pychecker).'
220
221 13 Jun 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
222 Fix typos: get_extended() instead of get_extended_partition(). Added
223 list_mirrors() and list_stage_tarballs_from_mirror() functions to GLIUtility.
224 Change _emerge("sync") call to direct call to spawn to avoid 'emerge -k sync'
225
226 12 Jun 2005; John N. Laliberte <allanonjl@gentoo.org>
227 GLIInstallProfile.py: add missing set for dhcp_options if a tuple is passed
228 in add_network_interface.
229
230 12 Jun 2005; Robin H. Johnson <robbat2@gentoo.org> src/GLIArchitectureTemplate.py:
231 ensure PORTAGE_TMPDIR/PORT_LOGDIR/PORTDIR_OVERLAY/PKGDIR exist prior to any
232 usage - this caused a failure for stage1/stage2 previously. swapoff for swap
233 space at end of install. Mount /dev, /dev/shm, /dev/pts and /sys during
234 prepare_chroot.
235
236 11 Jun 2005; Robin H. Johnson <robbat2@gentoo.org> +src/cli/clife.py,
237 +src/cli/README, +src/fe/installer-cli, +src/fe/installer-dialog,
238 +src/fe/installer-gtk:
239 Add new automated CLI frontend. Add scripts that are the intended means to
240 use each frontend.
241
242 11 Jun 2005; Robin H. Johnson <robbat2@gentoo.org>
243 src/GLIClientController.py:
244 Add null type to network config, for cases where the interface is already up
245 and should not be touched (netboot for example).
246
247 11 Jun 2005; Robin H. Johnson <robbat2@gentoo.org>
248 src/GLIArchitectureTemplate.py:
249 pcmcia is not a variable name for a call to _add_to_runlevel, it should be a
250 string!. Try to use binary packages if available by default.
251
252 11 Jun 2005; Robin H. Johnson <robbat2@gentoo.org>
253 src/GLIArchitectureTemplate.py:
254 More error checking for _add_to_runlevel, to ensure that the init script
255 actually exists before we try to add it. set_services phase must take place
256 after the package installation, otherwise the init scripts might not exist.
257 Find the correct init script for the cron and logging daemons, and add that
258 instead of the package atom.
259
260 11 Jun 2005; Robin H. Johnson <robbat2@gentoo.org>
261 src/GLIArchitectureTemplate.py:
262 Fix up _edit_config so that it works if the file doesn't already exist. Fix
263 usage of 'file' to 'contents' for the variable name, as it shadows
264 __builtin__.file.
265
266 11 Jun 2005; Robin H. Johnson <robbat2@gentoo.org>
267 src/GLIArchitectureTemplate.py:
268 Add MTA install code, and include MTA install phase. Ensure
269 PORT_LOGDIR/PORTDIR_OVERLAY are created in _emerge if needed. Add support
270 for 'none' kernel config for build_kernel phase. Put kernel_script in
271 /var/tmp instead of /root for build_kernel phase.
272
273 11 Jun 2005; Robin H. Johnson <robbat2@gentoo.org> src/GLIInstallProfile.py:
274 Rename mta variables to match syslog/cron variables.
275
276 11 Jun 2005; Robin H. Johnson <robbat2@gentoo.org>
277 src/GLIArchitectureTemplate.py, src/templates/x86ArchitectureTemplate.py,
278 src/.cvsignore, src/fe/dialog/.cvsignore, src/fe/gtk/.cvsignore,
279 src/fe/net/client/.cvsignore, src/fe/net/server/.cvsignore,
280 src/templates/.cvsignore, src/tests/.cvsignore:
281 Refactor partition formatting again to include error checking. Allow 'none'
282 for kernel and bootloader specifications. Add .cvsignore files for .py[co].
283
284 11 Jun 2005; Robin H. Johnson <robbat2@gentoo.org>
285 src/GLIArchitectureTemplate.py, src/templates/x86ArchitectureTemplate.py:
286 Refactor _emerge to remove duplicate code. Refactor mkfs code in backend to
287 only have a single spawn call.
288
289 11 Jun 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
290 refixed samyron's fix of set_architecture_template.
291
292 11 Jun 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
293 Move /tmp/spawn.sh and /tmp/post-install to /var/tmp since that should always
294 be executable.
295
296 10 Jun 2005; Scott Myron <samyron@gentoo.org>
297 Fixed one of the FIXME's in the ClientConfiguration. There is now some
298 error checking when you call set_architecture_template.
299
300 10 Jun 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
301 moved the mkfsopts input to the partition options menu instead of the during
302 the creation process. updated GenDialog to say it supports reiserfs v3.
303
304 9 Jun 2005; Robin H. Johnson <robbat2@gentoo.org> src/GLIInstallProfile.py,
305 src/GLIStorageDevice.py, fe/dialog/dialogfe.py:
306 Complete support for 'mkfsopts' parameter in main system and dialogfe.
307 Add support for other partition types to dialogfe.
308 Fix all usages of int(possible_big_number) to long(possible_bit_number) to

8 Removed start/end from XML output and added mkfsopts to partitioning info. 312 Removed start/end from XML output and added mkfsopts to partitioning info.
313 'mkfsopts' parameter is now used and support for creating xfs, jfs, and
314 reiserfs is now in (patch from robbat2). Change '_parser' to 'self._parser'
315 in GLIClientConfiguration. Change from .1 and .9 to constants for
316 partitioning. Fix free space overwriting bug. Remove a few unused functions
317 from rewrite. Fix call to get_partition_at()
