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

97 function is called twice on the same file.
98
99 29 Jun 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
100 Missing \ in sed in _get_packages_to_emerge()

140 Add dhcp_options to the CC, CConfig, and GenDialog. More overall changes to
141 GenDialog as it gets closer to completion.
142
143 22 Jun 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
144 Modify get_eth_info() to take a full interface name (eth0 fex). float()
145 instead of int() in add_partition_device_partition() for minor (closes 96804)
146
147 21 Jun 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
148 Changed setup_network_post to check for 'interfaces[interface][0] != "dhcp"'
149 instead of 'interfaces[interface][1]' since DHCP uses that field for its
150 options. setup_network_post() writes custom DHCP options to /etc/conf.d/net.
151
152 20 Jun 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
153 Apply spawn() patch from #96644 (with minor changes). Make sure the return

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

185 2.4 support (pull version data from /usr/src/linux/Makefile), incl.
186 'make dep' call for custom compile. build_mode support for prepare-only and
187 none types completed. custom compile function chains shell functions in
188 spawned script, to allow for catching all errors.
189
190 15 Jun 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
191 fixed up build_kernel in ArchTemplate for build_mode as well as in dialogfe
192 and GenDialog. other gendialog updates as well. kernel updates untested.
193
194 14 Jun 2005; Robin H. Johnson <robbat2@gentoo.org>
195 src/GLIInstallProfile.py:
196 Change structure of etc-portage stuff. The serialization was broken before my
197 last commit, and I am the only person that's ever used it. The new schema is
198 as follows:
199 <etc-portage>
200 <file name="package.mask"/>
201 <file name="package.unmask">
202 <entry atom="sys-kernel/openmosix-sources"/>
203 </file>
204 <file name="package.use">
205 <entry atom="sys-libs/db">
206 -java
207 </entry>
208 <entry atom="dev-libs/cyrus-sasl">
209 -ldap
210 </entry>
211 </file>
212 </etc-portage>
213
214
215 13 Jun 2005; Robin H. Johnson <robbat2@gentoo.org>
216 src/GLIInstallProfile.py:
217 Add new entry for gli-profile/kernel-build-method item. Add missing
218 serialize_etc_portage (temporary). Make serialize_make_conf always print the
219 keys in the same order.
220
221 13 Jun 2005; Robin H. Johnson <robbat2@gentoo.org>
222 src/GLIArchitectureTemplate.py:
223 Clean up commenting used by _edit_config(), and fix bug where wrong comment
224 was repeatedly appended to make.conf.
225
226 13 Jun 2005; Robin H. Johnson <robbat2@gentoo.org>
227 src/GLIArchitectureTemplate.py:
228 Put some Linux-2.6 specific code under a if statement. Store list of
229 successfully mounted swap device for using swapoff. Add proper error checking
230 to install_packages and install_filesystem_tools. Fixed namespace conflicts on
231 'file'. Clean up some redundant code (thanks to pychecker).'
232
233 13 Jun 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
234 Fix typos: get_extended() instead of get_extended_partition(). Added
235 list_mirrors() and list_stage_tarballs_from_mirror() functions to GLIUtility.
236 Change _emerge("sync") call to direct call to spawn to avoid 'emerge -k sync'
237
238 12 Jun 2005; John N. Laliberte <allanonjl@gentoo.org>
239 GLIInstallProfile.py: add missing set for dhcp_options if a tuple is passed
240 in add_network_interface.
241
242 12 Jun 2005; Robin H. Johnson <robbat2@gentoo.org> src/GLIArchitectureTemplate.py:
243 ensure PORTAGE_TMPDIR/PORT_LOGDIR/PORTDIR_OVERLAY/PKGDIR exist prior to any
244 usage - this caused a failure for stage1/stage2 previously. swapoff for swap
245 space at end of install. Mount /dev, /dev/shm, /dev/pts and /sys during
246 prepare_chroot.
247
248 11 Jun 2005; Robin H. Johnson <robbat2@gentoo.org> +src/cli/clife.py,
249 +src/cli/README, +src/fe/installer-cli, +src/fe/installer-dialog,
250 +src/fe/installer-gtk:
251 Add new automated CLI frontend. Add scripts that are the intended means to
252 use each frontend.
253
254 11 Jun 2005; Robin H. Johnson <robbat2@gentoo.org>
255 src/GLIClientController.py:
256 Add null type to network config, for cases where the interface is already up
257 and should not be touched (netboot for example).
258
259 11 Jun 2005; Robin H. Johnson <robbat2@gentoo.org>
260 src/GLIArchitectureTemplate.py:
261 pcmcia is not a variable name for a call to _add_to_runlevel, it should be a
262 string!. Try to use binary packages if available by default.
263
264 11 Jun 2005; Robin H. Johnson <robbat2@gentoo.org>
265 src/GLIArchitectureTemplate.py:
266 More error checking for _add_to_runlevel, to ensure that the init script
267 actually exists before we try to add it. set_services phase must take place
268 after the package installation, otherwise the init scripts might not exist.
269 Find the correct init script for the cron and logging daemons, and add that
270 instead of the package atom.
271
272 11 Jun 2005; Robin H. Johnson <robbat2@gentoo.org>
273 src/GLIArchitectureTemplate.py:
274 Fix up _edit_config so that it works if the file doesn't already exist. Fix
275 usage of 'file' to 'contents' for the variable name, as it shadows
276 __builtin__.file.
277
278 11 Jun 2005; Robin H. Johnson <robbat2@gentoo.org>
279 src/GLIArchitectureTemplate.py:
280 Add MTA install code, and include MTA install phase. Ensure
281 PORT_LOGDIR/PORTDIR_OVERLAY are created in _emerge if needed. Add support
282 for 'none' kernel config for build_kernel phase. Put kernel_script in
283 /var/tmp instead of /root for build_kernel phase.
284
285 11 Jun 2005; Robin H. Johnson <robbat2@gentoo.org> src/GLIInstallProfile.py:
286 Rename mta variables to match syslog/cron variables.
287
288 11 Jun 2005; Robin H. Johnson <robbat2@gentoo.org>
289 src/GLIArchitectureTemplate.py, src/templates/x86ArchitectureTemplate.py,
290 src/.cvsignore, src/fe/dialog/.cvsignore, src/fe/gtk/.cvsignore,
291 src/fe/net/client/.cvsignore, src/fe/net/server/.cvsignore,
292 src/templates/.cvsignore, src/tests/.cvsignore:
293 Refactor partition formatting again to include error checking. Allow 'none'
294 for kernel and bootloader specifications. Add .cvsignore files for .py[co].
295
296 11 Jun 2005; Robin H. Johnson <robbat2@gentoo.org>
297 src/GLIArchitectureTemplate.py, src/templates/x86ArchitectureTemplate.py:
298 Refactor _emerge to remove duplicate code. Refactor mkfs code in backend to
299 only have a single spawn call.
300
301 11 Jun 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
302 refixed samyron's fix of set_architecture_template.
303
304 11 Jun 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
305 Move /tmp/spawn.sh and /tmp/post-install to /var/tmp since that should always
306 be executable.
307
308 10 Jun 2005; Scott Myron <samyron@gentoo.org>
309 Fixed one of the FIXME's in the ClientConfiguration. There is now some
310 error checking when you call set_architecture_template.
311
312 10 Jun 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
313 moved the mkfsopts input to the partition options menu instead of the during
314 the creation process. updated GenDialog to say it supports reiserfs v3.
315
316 9 Jun 2005; Robin H. Johnson <robbat2@gentoo.org> src/GLIInstallProfile.py,
317 src/GLIStorageDevice.py, fe/dialog/dialogfe.py:
