6
7 13 Jun 2005; Robin H. Johnson <robbat2@gentoo.org>
8 src/GLIInstallProfile.py:
9 Add new entry for gli-profile/kernel-build-method item. Add missing
10 serialize_etc_portage (temporary). Make serialize_make_conf always print the
11 keys in the same order.
12
13 13 Jun 2005; Robin H. Johnson <robbat2@gentoo.org>
14 src/GLIArchitectureTemplate.py:
15 Clean up commenting used by _edit_config(), and fix bug where wrong comment
16 was repeatedly appended to make.conf.
17
18 13 Jun 2005; Robin H. Johnson <robbat2@gentoo.org>
19 src/GLIArchitectureTemplate.py:
20 Put some Linux-2.6 specific code under a if statement. Store list of
21 successfully mounted swap device for using swapoff. Add proper error checking
22 to install_packages and install_filesystem_tools. Fixed namespace conflicts on
23 'file'. Clean up some redundant code (thanks to pychecker).'
24
25 13 Jun 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
26 Fix typos: get_extended() instead of get_extended_partition(). Added
27 list_mirrors() and list_stage_tarballs_from_mirror() functions to GLIUtility.
28 Change _emerge("sync") call to direct call to spawn to avoid 'emerge -k sync'
29
30 12 Jun 2005; John N. Laliberte <allanonjl@gentoo.org>
31 GLIInstallProfile.py: add missing set for dhcp_options if a tuple is passed
32 in add_network_interface.
33
34 12 Jun 2005; Robin H. Johnson <robbat2@gentoo.org> src/GLIArchitectureTemplate.py:
35 ensure PORTAGE_TMPDIR/PORT_LOGDIR/PORTDIR_OVERLAY/PKGDIR exist prior to any
36 usage - this caused a failure for stage1/stage2 previously. swapoff for swap
37 space at end of install. Mount /dev, /dev/shm, /dev/pts and /sys during
38 prepare_chroot.
39
40 11 Jun 2005; Robin H. Johnson <robbat2@gentoo.org> +src/cli/clife.py,
41 +src/cli/README, +src/fe/installer-cli, +src/fe/installer-dialog,
42 +src/fe/installer-gtk:
43 Add new automated CLI frontend. Add scripts that are the intended means to
44 use each frontend.
45
46 11 Jun 2005; Robin H. Johnson <robbat2@gentoo.org>
47 src/GLIClientController.py:
48 Add null type to network config, for cases where the interface is already up
49 and should not be touched (netboot for example).
50
51 11 Jun 2005; Robin H. Johnson <robbat2@gentoo.org>
52 src/GLIArchitectureTemplate.py:
53 pcmcia is not a variable name for a call to _add_to_runlevel, it should be a
54 string!. Try to use binary packages if available by default.
55
56 11 Jun 2005; Robin H. Johnson <robbat2@gentoo.org>
57 src/GLIArchitectureTemplate.py:
58 More error checking for _add_to_runlevel, to ensure that the init script
59 actually exists before we try to add it. set_services phase must take place
60 after the package installation, otherwise the init scripts might not exist.
61 Find the correct init script for the cron and logging daemons, and add that
62 instead of the package atom.
63
64 11 Jun 2005; Robin H. Johnson <robbat2@gentoo.org>
65 src/GLIArchitectureTemplate.py:
66 Fix up _edit_config so that it works if the file doesn't already exist. Fix
67 usage of 'file' to 'contents' for the variable name, as it shadows
68 __builtin__.file.
69
70 11 Jun 2005; Robin H. Johnson <robbat2@gentoo.org>
71 src/GLIArchitectureTemplate.py:
72 Add MTA install code, and include MTA install phase. Ensure
73 PORT_LOGDIR/PORTDIR_OVERLAY are created in _emerge if needed. Add support
74 for 'none' kernel config for build_kernel phase. Put kernel_script in
75 /var/tmp instead of /root for build_kernel phase.
76
77 11 Jun 2005; Robin H. Johnson <robbat2@gentoo.org> src/GLIInstallProfile.py:
78 Rename mta variables to match syslog/cron variables.
79
80 11 Jun 2005; Robin H. Johnson <robbat2@gentoo.org>
81 src/GLIArchitectureTemplate.py, src/templates/x86ArchitectureTemplate.py,
82 src/.cvsignore, src/fe/dialog/.cvsignore, src/fe/gtk/.cvsignore,
83 src/fe/net/client/.cvsignore, src/fe/net/server/.cvsignore,
84 src/templates/.cvsignore, src/tests/.cvsignore:
85 Refactor partition formatting again to include error checking. Allow 'none'
86 for kernel and bootloader specifications. Add .cvsignore files for .py[co].
87
88 11 Jun 2005; Robin H. Johnson <robbat2@gentoo.org>
89 src/GLIArchitectureTemplate.py, src/templates/x86ArchitectureTemplate.py:

91 only have a single spawn call.

95
96 11 Jun 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>

98 be executable.
99
100 10 Jun 2005; Scott Myron <samyron@gentoo.org>
101 Fixed one of the FIXME's in the ClientConfiguration. There is now some
102 error checking when you call set_architecture_template.
103
104 10 Jun 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
105 moved the mkfsopts input to the partition options menu instead of the during
106 the creation process. updated GenDialog to say it supports reiserfs v3.
107
108 9 Jun 2005; Robin H. Johnson <robbat2@gentoo.org> src/GLIInstallProfile.py,
109 src/GLIStorageDevice.py, fe/dialog/dialogfe.py:
110 Complete support for 'mkfsopts' parameter in main system and dialogfe.
111 Add support for other partition types to dialogfe.
112 Fix all usages of int(possible_big_number) to long(possible_bit_number) to

114
115 9 Jun 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
116 Removed start/end from XML output and added mkfsopts to partitioning info.
117 'mkfsopts' parameter is now used and support for creating xfs, jfs, and
118 reiserfs is now in (patch from robbat2). Change '_parser' to 'self._parser'
119 in GLIClientConfiguration. Change from .1 and .9 to constants for
