6
7 12 Jun 2005; Robin H. Johnson <robbat2@gentoo.org> src/GLIArchitectureTemplate.py:
8 ensure PORTAGE_TMPDIR/PORT_LOGDIR/PORTDIR_OVERLAY/PKGDIR exist prior to any
9 usage - this caused a failure for stage1/stage2 previously. swapoff for swap
10 space at end of install.
11
12 11 Jun 2005; Robin H. Johnson <robbat2@gentoo.org> +src/cli/clife.py,
13 +src/cli/README, +src/fe/installer-cli, +src/fe/installer-dialog,
14 +src/fe/installer-gtk:
15 Add new automated CLI frontend. Add scripts that are the intended means to
16 use each frontend.
17
18 11 Jun 2005; Robin H. Johnson <robbat2@gentoo.org>
19 src/GLIClientController.py:
20 Add null type to network config, for cases where the interface is already up
21 and should not be touched (netboot for example).
22
23 11 Jun 2005; Robin H. Johnson <robbat2@gentoo.org>
24 src/GLIArchitectureTemplate.py:
25 pcmcia is not a variable name for a call to _add_to_runlevel, it should be a
26 string!. Try to use binary packages if available by default.
27
28 11 Jun 2005; Robin H. Johnson <robbat2@gentoo.org>
29 src/GLIArchitectureTemplate.py:
30 More error checking for _add_to_runlevel, to ensure that the init script
31 actually exists before we try to add it. set_services phase must take place
32 after the package installation, otherwise the init scripts might not exist.
33 Find the correct init script for the cron and logging daemons, and add that
34 instead of the package atom.
35
36 11 Jun 2005; Robin H. Johnson <robbat2@gentoo.org>
37 src/GLIArchitectureTemplate.py:
38 Fix up _edit_config so that it works if the file doesn't already exist. Fix
39 usage of 'file' to 'contents' for the variable name, as it shadows
40 __builtin__.file.
41
42 11 Jun 2005; Robin H. Johnson <robbat2@gentoo.org>
43 src/GLIArchitectureTemplate.py:
44 Add MTA install code, and include MTA install phase. Ensure
45 PORT_LOGDIR/PORTDIR_OVERLAY are created in _emerge if needed. Add support
46 for 'none' kernel config for build_kernel phase. Put kernel_script in
47 /var/tmp instead of /root for build_kernel phase.
48
49 11 Jun 2005; Robin H. Johnson <robbat2@gentoo.org> src/GLIInstallProfile.py:
50 Rename mta variables to match syslog/cron variables.

53 src/GLIArchitectureTemplate.py, src/templates/x86ArchitectureTemplate.py,
54 src/.cvsignore, src/fe/dialog/.cvsignore, src/fe/gtk/.cvsignore,
55 src/fe/net/client/.cvsignore, src/fe/net/server/.cvsignore,
56 src/templates/.cvsignore, src/tests/.cvsignore:
57 Refactor partition formatting again to include error checking. Allow 'none'
58 for kernel and bootloader specifications. Add .cvsignore files for .py[co].
59
60 11 Jun 2005; Robin H. Johnson <robbat2@gentoo.org>
61 src/GLIArchitectureTemplate.py, src/templates/x86ArchitectureTemplate.py:

67

76 10 Jun 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
77 moved the mkfsopts input to the partition options menu instead of the during
78 the creation process. updated GenDialog to say it supports reiserfs v3.
79
80 9 Jun 2005; Robin H. Johnson <robbat2@gentoo.org> src/GLIInstallProfile.py,
81 src/GLIStorageDevice.py, fe/dialog/dialogfe.py:
82 Complete support for 'mkfsopts' parameter in main system and dialogfe.
83 Add support for other partition types to dialogfe.
84 Fix all usages of int(possible_big_number) to long(possible_bit_number) to
