124 function is called twice on the same file.
125
126 29 Jun 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
127 Missing \ in sed in _get_packages_to_emerge()

169
170 22 Jun 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
171 Modify get_eth_info() to take a full interface name (eth0 fex). float()
172 instead of int() in add_partition_device_partition() for minor (closes 96804)
173
174 21 Jun 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
175 Changed setup_network_post to check for 'interfaces[interface][0] != "dhcp"'
176 instead of 'interfaces[interface][1]' since DHCP uses that field for its
177 options. setup_network_post() writes custom DHCP options to /etc/conf.d/net.
178
179 20 Jun 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
180 Apply spawn() patch from #96644 (with minor changes). Make sure the return

193 get subarch.
194
195 16 Jun 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
196 Backend partitioning will create disklabel is none exists. Installprofile
197 defaults to "" now instead of "msdos" for disklabel type. Fix for
198 mount_local_partitions() to remember device along with minor in the
199 parts_to_mount dict (closes #96319). mount_local_partitions() cleanups and
200 add else block to log unsupported netmount types to mount_network_shares()
201
202 15 Jun 2005; Robin H. Johnson <robbat2@gentoo.org>

212 2.4 support (pull version data from /usr/src/linux/Makefile), incl.
213 'make dep' call for custom compile. build_mode support for prepare-only and
214 none types completed. custom compile function chains shell functions in
215 spawned script, to allow for catching all errors.
216
217 15 Jun 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
218 fixed up build_kernel in ArchTemplate for build_mode as well as in dialogfe
219 and GenDialog. other gendialog updates as well. kernel updates untested.
220
221 14 Jun 2005; Robin H. Johnson <robbat2@gentoo.org>
222 src/GLIInstallProfile.py:
223 Change structure of etc-portage stuff. The serialization was broken before my
224 last commit, and I am the only person that's ever used it. The new schema is
225 as follows:
226 <etc-portage>
227 <file name="package.mask"/>
228 <file name="package.unmask">
229 <entry atom="sys-kernel/openmosix-sources"/>
230 </file>
231 <file name="package.use">
232 <entry atom="sys-libs/db">
233 -java
234 </entry>
235 <entry atom="dev-libs/cyrus-sasl">
236 -ldap
237 </entry>
238 </file>
239 </etc-portage>
240
241
242 13 Jun 2005; Robin H. Johnson <robbat2@gentoo.org>
243 src/GLIInstallProfile.py:
244 Add new entry for gli-profile/kernel-build-method item. Add missing
245 serialize_etc_portage (temporary). Make serialize_make_conf always print the
246 keys in the same order.
247
248 13 Jun 2005; Robin H. Johnson <robbat2@gentoo.org>
249 src/GLIArchitectureTemplate.py:
250 Clean up commenting used by _edit_config(), and fix bug where wrong comment
251 was repeatedly appended to make.conf.
252
253 13 Jun 2005; Robin H. Johnson <robbat2@gentoo.org>
254 src/GLIArchitectureTemplate.py:
255 Put some Linux-2.6 specific code under a if statement. Store list of
256 successfully mounted swap device for using swapoff. Add proper error checking
257 to install_packages and install_filesystem_tools. Fixed namespace conflicts on
258 'file'. Clean up some redundant code (thanks to pychecker).'
259
260 13 Jun 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
261 Fix typos: get_extended() instead of get_extended_partition(). Added
262 list_mirrors() and list_stage_tarballs_from_mirror() functions to GLIUtility.
263 Change _emerge("sync") call to direct call to spawn to avoid 'emerge -k sync'
264
265 12 Jun 2005; John N. Laliberte <allanonjl@gentoo.org>
266 GLIInstallProfile.py: add missing set for dhcp_options if a tuple is passed
267 in add_network_interface.
268
269 12 Jun 2005; Robin H. Johnson <robbat2@gentoo.org> src/GLIArchitectureTemplate.py:
270 ensure PORTAGE_TMPDIR/PORT_LOGDIR/PORTDIR_OVERLAY/PKGDIR exist prior to any
271 usage - this caused a failure for stage1/stage2 previously. swapoff for swap
272 space at end of install. Mount /dev, /dev/shm, /dev/pts and /sys during
273 prepare_chroot.
274
275 11 Jun 2005; Robin H. Johnson <robbat2@gentoo.org> +src/cli/clife.py,
276 +src/cli/README, +src/fe/installer-cli, +src/fe/installer-dialog,

279 use each frontend.
280

284 and should not be touched (netboot for example).
285
286 11 Jun 2005; Robin H. Johnson <robbat2@gentoo.org>
287 src/GLIArchitectureTemplate.py:
288 pcmcia is not a variable name for a call to _add_to_runlevel, it should be a
289 string!. Try to use binary packages if available by default.
290
291 11 Jun 2005; Robin H. Johnson <robbat2@gentoo.org>
292 src/GLIArchitectureTemplate.py:
293 More error checking for _add_to_runlevel, to ensure that the init script
294 actually exists before we try to add it. set_services phase must take place
295 after the package installation, otherwise the init scripts might not exist.
296 Find the correct init script for the cron and logging daemons, and add that
297 instead of the package atom.
298
299 11 Jun 2005; Robin H. Johnson <robbat2@gentoo.org>
300 src/GLIArchitectureTemplate.py:
301 Fix up _edit_config so that it works if the file doesn't already exist. Fix
302 usage of 'file' to 'contents' for the variable name, as it shadows
303 __builtin__.file.
304
305 11 Jun 2005; Robin H. Johnson <robbat2@gentoo.org>
306 src/GLIArchitectureTemplate.py:
307 Add MTA install code, and include MTA install phase. Ensure
308 PORT_LOGDIR/PORTDIR_OVERLAY are created in _emerge if needed. Add support
309 for 'none' kernel config for build_kernel phase. Put kernel_script in
310 /var/tmp instead of /root for build_kernel phase.
311
312 11 Jun 2005; Robin H. Johnson <robbat2@gentoo.org> src/GLIInstallProfile.py:
313 Rename mta variables to match syslog/cron variables.
314
315 11 Jun 2005; Robin H. Johnson <robbat2@gentoo.org>
316 src/GLIArchitectureTemplate.py, src/templates/x86ArchitectureTemplate.py,
317 src/.cvsignore, src/fe/dialog/.cvsignore, src/fe/gtk/.cvsignore,
318 src/fe/net/client/.cvsignore, src/fe/net/server/.cvsignore,
319 src/templates/.cvsignore, src/tests/.cvsignore:
320 Refactor partition formatting again to include error checking. Allow 'none'
321 for kernel and bootloader specifications. Add .cvsignore files for .py[co].
322
323 11 Jun 2005; Robin H. Johnson <robbat2@gentoo.org>
324 src/GLIArchitectureTemplate.py, src/templates/x86ArchitectureTemplate.py:
325 Refactor _emerge to remove duplicate code. Refactor mkfs code in backend to
326 only have a single spawn call.
327
328 11 Jun 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
329 refixed samyron's fix of set_architecture_template.
330
331 11 Jun 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
332 Move /tmp/spawn.sh and /tmp/post-install to /var/tmp since that should always
333 be executable.
334
335 10 Jun 2005; Scott Myron <samyron@gentoo.org>
336 Fixed one of the FIXME's in the ClientConfiguration. There is now some
337 error checking when you call set_architecture_template.
338
339 10 Jun 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
340 moved the mkfsopts input to the partition options menu instead of the during
341 the creation process. updated GenDialog to say it supports reiserfs v3.
342
343 9 Jun 2005; Robin H. Johnson <robbat2@gentoo.org> src/GLIInstallProfile.py,

350 9 Jun 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
351 Removed start/end from XML output and added mkfsopts to partitioning info.
352 'mkfsopts' parameter is now used and support for creating xfs, jfs, and
353 reiserfs is now in (patch from robbat2). Change '_parser' to 'self._parser'
354 in GLIClientConfiguration. Change from .1 and .9 to constants for
355 partitioning. Fix free space overwriting bug. Remove a few unused functions
356 from rewrite. Fix call to get_partition_at()
