7 24 Jul 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
8 changed default values of cron/logger in IP.
9 moved GenDialog IP init out to the individual files. gli-dialog's version
10 will change quite a bit.
11

22 src/GLIInstallProfile.py:
23 Fix codeman's screwup of changing the service seperator to ',' in the parser
24 without changing it in the serialization code! Also document this in a
25 comment so you find it easier. Everybody needs to make sure they update
26 their install profiles!
27
28 07 Jul 2005; Robin H. Johnson <robbat2@gentoo.org>
29 src/GLIArchitectureTemplate.py:
30 Fix casting of list to string and concat of None with string, as well as

40 src/templates/x86ArchitectureTemplate.py:
41 Refactor install_bootloader code and _install_{grub,lilo} so that 'none' for
42 bootloader works again. Also rename _install_{grub,lilo} to
43 _configure_{grub,lilo} since they don't install the loaders anymore
44 themselves.
45
46 7 Jul 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>

69 Make a copy of newvalues in _edit_config() so quotes aren't added when the
70 function is called twice on the same file.
71
72 29 Jun 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
73 Missing \ in sed in _get_packages_to_emerge()

118 instead of int() in add_partition_device_partition() for minor (closes 96804)
119
120 21 Jun 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
121 Changed setup_network_post to check for 'interfaces[interface][0] != "dhcp"'
122 instead of 'interfaces[interface][1]' since DHCP uses that field for its
123 options. setup_network_post() writes custom DHCP options to /etc/conf.d/net.
124
125 20 Jun 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
126 Apply spawn() patch from #96644 (with minor changes). Make sure the return

139 get subarch.
140
141 16 Jun 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
142 Backend partitioning will create disklabel is none exists. Installprofile
143 defaults to "" now instead of "msdos" for disklabel type. Fix for
144 mount_local_partitions() to remember device along with minor in the
145 parts_to_mount dict (closes #96319). mount_local_partitions() cleanups and
146 add else block to log unsupported netmount types to mount_network_shares()
147
148 15 Jun 2005; Robin H. Johnson <robbat2@gentoo.org>

158 2.4 support (pull version data from /usr/src/linux/Makefile), incl.
159 'make dep' call for custom compile. build_mode support for prepare-only and
160 none types completed. custom compile function chains shell functions in
161 spawned script, to allow for catching all errors.
162
163 15 Jun 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
164 fixed up build_kernel in ArchTemplate for build_mode as well as in dialogfe
165 and GenDialog. other gendialog updates as well. kernel updates untested.
166
167 14 Jun 2005; Robin H. Johnson <robbat2@gentoo.org>
168 src/GLIInstallProfile.py:
169 Change structure of etc-portage stuff. The serialization was broken before my
170 last commit, and I am the only person that's ever used it. The new schema is
171 as follows:
172 <etc-portage>
173 <file name="package.mask"/>
174 <file name="package.unmask">
175 <entry atom="sys-kernel/openmosix-sources"/>
176 </file>
177 <file name="package.use">
178 <entry atom="sys-libs/db">
179 -java
180 </entry>
181 <entry atom="dev-libs/cyrus-sasl">
182 -ldap
183 </entry>
184 </file>
185 </etc-portage>
186
187
188 13 Jun 2005; Robin H. Johnson <robbat2@gentoo.org>
189 src/GLIInstallProfile.py:
190 Add new entry for gli-profile/kernel-build-method item. Add missing
191 serialize_etc_portage (temporary). Make serialize_make_conf always print the
192 keys in the same order.
193
194 13 Jun 2005; Robin H. Johnson <robbat2@gentoo.org>
195 src/GLIArchitectureTemplate.py:
196 Clean up commenting used by _edit_config(), and fix bug where wrong comment
197 was repeatedly appended to make.conf.
198
199 13 Jun 2005; Robin H. Johnson <robbat2@gentoo.org>
200 src/GLIArchitectureTemplate.py:
201 Put some Linux-2.6 specific code under a if statement. Store list of
202 successfully mounted swap device for using swapoff. Add proper error checking
203 to install_packages and install_filesystem_tools. Fixed namespace conflicts on
204 'file'. Clean up some redundant code (thanks to pychecker).'
205
206 13 Jun 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
207 Fix typos: get_extended() instead of get_extended_partition(). Added
208 list_mirrors() and list_stage_tarballs_from_mirror() functions to GLIUtility.
209 Change _emerge("sync") call to direct call to spawn to avoid 'emerge -k sync'
210
211 12 Jun 2005; John N. Laliberte <allanonjl@gentoo.org>
212 GLIInstallProfile.py: add missing set for dhcp_options if a tuple is passed
213 in add_network_interface.
214
215 12 Jun 2005; Robin H. Johnson <robbat2@gentoo.org> src/GLIArchitectureTemplate.py:
216 ensure PORTAGE_TMPDIR/PORT_LOGDIR/PORTDIR_OVERLAY/PKGDIR exist prior to any
217 usage - this caused a failure for stage1/stage2 previously. swapoff for swap
218 space at end of install. Mount /dev, /dev/shm, /dev/pts and /sys during
219 prepare_chroot.
220
221 11 Jun 2005; Robin H. Johnson <robbat2@gentoo.org> +src/cli/clife.py,
222 +src/cli/README, +src/fe/installer-cli, +src/fe/installer-dialog,
223 +src/fe/installer-gtk:
224 Add new automated CLI frontend. Add scripts that are the intended means to
225 use each frontend.
226

228 src/GLIClientController.py:
229 Add null type to network config, for cases where the interface is already up
230 and should not be touched (netboot for example).
231
232 11 Jun 2005; Robin H. Johnson <robbat2@gentoo.org>
233 src/GLIArchitectureTemplate.py:
234 pcmcia is not a variable name for a call to _add_to_runlevel, it should be a
235 string!. Try to use binary packages if available by default.
236
237 11 Jun 2005; Robin H. Johnson <robbat2@gentoo.org>
238 src/GLIArchitectureTemplate.py:
239 More error checking for _add_to_runlevel, to ensure that the init script
240 actually exists before we try to add it. set_services phase must take place
241 after the package installation, otherwise the init scripts might not exist.
242 Find the correct init script for the cron and logging daemons, and add that
243 instead of the package atom.
244
245 11 Jun 2005; Robin H. Johnson <robbat2@gentoo.org>
246 src/GLIArchitectureTemplate.py:
247 Fix up _edit_config so that it works if the file doesn't already exist. Fix
248 usage of 'file' to 'contents' for the variable name, as it shadows
249 __builtin__.file.
250
251 11 Jun 2005; Robin H. Johnson <robbat2@gentoo.org>
252 src/GLIArchitectureTemplate.py:
253 Add MTA install code, and include MTA install phase. Ensure
254 PORT_LOGDIR/PORTDIR_OVERLAY are created in _emerge if needed. Add support
255 for 'none' kernel config for build_kernel phase. Put kernel_script in
256 /var/tmp instead of /root for build_kernel phase.
257
258 11 Jun 2005; Robin H. Johnson <robbat2@gentoo.org> src/GLIInstallProfile.py:
259 Rename mta variables to match syslog/cron variables.
260
261 11 Jun 2005; Robin H. Johnson <robbat2@gentoo.org>
262 src/GLIArchitectureTemplate.py, src/templates/x86ArchitectureTemplate.py,
263 src/.cvsignore, src/fe/dialog/.cvsignore, src/fe/gtk/.cvsignore,
264 src/fe/net/client/.cvsignore, src/fe/net/server/.cvsignore,
265 src/templates/.cvsignore, src/tests/.cvsignore:
266 Refactor partition formatting again to include error checking. Allow 'none'
267 for kernel and bootloader specifications. Add .cvsignore files for .py[co].
268
269 11 Jun 2005; Robin H. Johnson <robbat2@gentoo.org>
270 src/GLIArchitectureTemplate.py, src/templates/x86ArchitectureTemplate.py:
271 Refactor _emerge to remove duplicate code. Refactor mkfs code in backend to
272 only have a single spawn call.
273
274 11 Jun 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
275 refixed samyron's fix of set_architecture_template.
276
277 11 Jun 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
278 Move /tmp/spawn.sh and /tmp/post-install to /var/tmp since that should always
279 be executable.
280
281 10 Jun 2005; Scott Myron <samyron@gentoo.org>
282 Fixed one of the FIXME's in the ClientConfiguration. There is now some
283 error checking when you call set_architecture_template.
284
285 10 Jun 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
286 moved the mkfsopts input to the partition options menu instead of the during
287 the creation process. updated GenDialog to say it supports reiserfs v3.
288
289 9 Jun 2005; Robin H. Johnson <robbat2@gentoo.org> src/GLIInstallProfile.py,
