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

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

71 _configure_{grub,lilo} since they don't install the loaders anymore
72 themselves.
73

95 Remove separate install step configure_rc_conf() since it's handled by
96 update_config_files()
97 Make a copy of newvalues in _edit_config() so quotes aren't added when the
98 function is called twice on the same file.
99
100 29 Jun 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
101 Missing \ in sed in _get_packages_to_emerge()
102 Removed explicit emerging of hotplug and no longer add it to the runlevel.

117 attempt at fixing rc.conf function. moved 3 generate functions out of
118 fe/gtk/RcDotConf and put them in Utility. fixed self bug.
119 added dialog.py to the fe/dialog directory so it actually gets used.
120
121 27 Jun 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
122 Roll rc_conf and make_conf into master etc_files structure in InstallProfile.
123
124 27 Jun 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>

126 beginning internationalization runthrough.
127
128 26 Jun 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
129 added dialog.py to /src temporarily until it gets accepted upstream.
130 fix for unused value in form in dialog.py and changed heights.

134 Changed hostname/domainname for new baselayout.
135 Changed _add_to_runlevel errors to logs.
136 Updated TODO list to show status of GenDialog
137 More updates to GenDialog including two checklists that probably won't work.
138 update IP to use comma-separated list instead of space separated for services.
139
140 24 Jun 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
141 Add dhcp_options to the CC, CConfig, and GenDialog. More overall changes to
142 GenDialog as it gets closer to completion.
143
144 22 Jun 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
145 Modify get_eth_info() to take a full interface name (eth0 fex). float()
146 instead of int() in add_partition_device_partition() for minor (closes 96804)
147
148 21 Jun 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
149 Changed setup_network_post to check for 'interfaces[interface][0] != "dhcp"'
150 instead of 'interfaces[interface][1]' since DHCP uses that field for its
151 options. setup_network_post() writes custom DHCP options to /etc/conf.d/net.
152
153 20 Jun 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
154 Apply spawn() patch from #96644 (with minor changes). Make sure the return
155 value from all spawn() calls is checked with GLIUtility.exitsuccess(). Fix
156 small error with <pipe>.close() returning None. Fix space vs. tab issue.

167 get subarch.
168
169 16 Jun 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
170 Backend partitioning will create disklabel is none exists. Installprofile
171 defaults to "" now instead of "msdos" for disklabel type. Fix for
172 mount_local_partitions() to remember device along with minor in the
173 parts_to_mount dict (closes #96319). mount_local_partitions() cleanups and
174 add else block to log unsupported netmount types to mount_network_shares()
175
176 15 Jun 2005; Robin H. Johnson <robbat2@gentoo.org>
177 src/GLIArchitectureTemplate.py:
178 Refactor kernel_compile common stuff, fix 2.4 build process.

184 15 Jun 2005; Robin H. Johnson <robbat2@gentoo.org>
185 src/GLIArchitectureTemplate.py:
186 2.4 support (pull version data from /usr/src/linux/Makefile), incl.
187 'make dep' call for custom compile. build_mode support for prepare-only and
188 none types completed. custom compile function chains shell functions in
189 spawned script, to allow for catching all errors.
190
191 15 Jun 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
192 fixed up build_kernel in ArchTemplate for build_mode as well as in dialogfe
193 and GenDialog. other gendialog updates as well. kernel updates untested.
194
195 14 Jun 2005; Robin H. Johnson <robbat2@gentoo.org>
196 src/GLIInstallProfile.py:
197 Change structure of etc-portage stuff. The serialization was broken before my
198 last commit, and I am the only person that's ever used it. The new schema is
199 as follows:
200 <etc-portage>
201 <file name="package.mask"/>
202 <file name="package.unmask">
203 <entry atom="sys-kernel/openmosix-sources"/>
204 </file>
205 <file name="package.use">
206 <entry atom="sys-libs/db">
207 -java
208 </entry>
209 <entry atom="dev-libs/cyrus-sasl">
210 -ldap
211 </entry>
212 </file>
213 </etc-portage>
214
215
216 13 Jun 2005; Robin H. Johnson <robbat2@gentoo.org>
217 src/GLIInstallProfile.py:
218 Add new entry for gli-profile/kernel-build-method item. Add missing
219 serialize_etc_portage (temporary). Make serialize_make_conf always print the
220 keys in the same order.
221
222 13 Jun 2005; Robin H. Johnson <robbat2@gentoo.org>
223 src/GLIArchitectureTemplate.py:
224 Clean up commenting used by _edit_config(), and fix bug where wrong comment
225 was repeatedly appended to make.conf.
226
227 13 Jun 2005; Robin H. Johnson <robbat2@gentoo.org>
228 src/GLIArchitectureTemplate.py:
229 Put some Linux-2.6 specific code under a if statement. Store list of
230 successfully mounted swap device for using swapoff. Add proper error checking
231 to install_packages and install_filesystem_tools. Fixed namespace conflicts on
232 'file'. Clean up some redundant code (thanks to pychecker).'
233
234 13 Jun 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
235 Fix typos: get_extended() instead of get_extended_partition(). Added
236 list_mirrors() and list_stage_tarballs_from_mirror() functions to GLIUtility.
237 Change _emerge("sync") call to direct call to spawn to avoid 'emerge -k sync'
238
239 12 Jun 2005; John N. Laliberte <allanonjl@gentoo.org>
240 GLIInstallProfile.py: add missing set for dhcp_options if a tuple is passed
241 in add_network_interface.
242
243 12 Jun 2005; Robin H. Johnson <robbat2@gentoo.org> src/GLIArchitectureTemplate.py:
244 ensure PORTAGE_TMPDIR/PORT_LOGDIR/PORTDIR_OVERLAY/PKGDIR exist prior to any
245 usage - this caused a failure for stage1/stage2 previously. swapoff for swap
246 space at end of install. Mount /dev, /dev/shm, /dev/pts and /sys during
247 prepare_chroot.
248
249 11 Jun 2005; Robin H. Johnson <robbat2@gentoo.org> +src/cli/clife.py,
250 +src/cli/README, +src/fe/installer-cli, +src/fe/installer-dialog,
251 +src/fe/installer-gtk:
252 Add new automated CLI frontend. Add scripts that are the intended means to
253 use each frontend.
254
255 11 Jun 2005; Robin H. Johnson <robbat2@gentoo.org>
256 src/GLIClientController.py:
257 Add null type to network config, for cases where the interface is already up
258 and should not be touched (netboot for example).
259
260 11 Jun 2005; Robin H. Johnson <robbat2@gentoo.org>
261 src/GLIArchitectureTemplate.py:
262 pcmcia is not a variable name for a call to _add_to_runlevel, it should be a
263 string!. Try to use binary packages if available by default.
264
265 11 Jun 2005; Robin H. Johnson <robbat2@gentoo.org>
266 src/GLIArchitectureTemplate.py:
267 More error checking for _add_to_runlevel, to ensure that the init script
268 actually exists before we try to add it. set_services phase must take place
269 after the package installation, otherwise the init scripts might not exist.
270 Find the correct init script for the cron and logging daemons, and add that
271 instead of the package atom.
272
273 11 Jun 2005; Robin H. Johnson <robbat2@gentoo.org>
274 src/GLIArchitectureTemplate.py:
275 Fix up _edit_config so that it works if the file doesn't already exist. Fix
276 usage of 'file' to 'contents' for the variable name, as it shadows
277 __builtin__.file.
278
279 11 Jun 2005; Robin H. Johnson <robbat2@gentoo.org>
280 src/GLIArchitectureTemplate.py:
281 Add MTA install code, and include MTA install phase. Ensure
282 PORT_LOGDIR/PORTDIR_OVERLAY are created in _emerge if needed. Add support
283 for 'none' kernel config for build_kernel phase. Put kernel_script in
284 /var/tmp instead of /root for build_kernel phase.
6 285
7 11 Jun 2005; Robin H. Johnson <robbat2@gentoo.org> src/GLIInstallProfile.py: 286 11 Jun 2005; Robin H. Johnson <robbat2@gentoo.org> src/GLIInstallProfile.py:
8 Rename mta variables to match syslog/cron variables. 287 Rename mta variables to match syslog/cron variables.
9 288
