136 src/templates/x86ArchitectureTemplate.py:

166 function is called twice on the same file.
167
168 29 Jun 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
169 Missing \ in sed in _get_packages_to_emerge()

209 Add dhcp_options to the CC, CConfig, and GenDialog. More overall changes to
210 GenDialog as it gets closer to completion.
211
212 22 Jun 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
213 Modify get_eth_info() to take a full interface name (eth0 fex). float()
214 instead of int() in add_partition_device_partition() for minor (closes 96804)
215
216 21 Jun 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
217 Changed setup_network_post to check for 'interfaces[interface][0] != "dhcp"'
218 instead of 'interfaces[interface][1]' since DHCP uses that field for its
219 options. setup_network_post() writes custom DHCP options to /etc/conf.d/net.
220
221 20 Jun 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
222 Apply spawn() patch from #96644 (with minor changes). Make sure the return

235 get subarch.
236
237 16 Jun 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
238 Backend partitioning will create disklabel is none exists. Installprofile
239 defaults to "" now instead of "msdos" for disklabel type. Fix for
240 mount_local_partitions() to remember device along with minor in the
241 parts_to_mount dict (closes #96319). mount_local_partitions() cleanups and
242 add else block to log unsupported netmount types to mount_network_shares()
243
244 15 Jun 2005; Robin H. Johnson <robbat2@gentoo.org>
245 src/GLIArchitectureTemplate.py:

254 2.4 support (pull version data from /usr/src/linux/Makefile), incl.
255 'make dep' call for custom compile. build_mode support for prepare-only and
256 none types completed. custom compile function chains shell functions in
257 spawned script, to allow for catching all errors.
258
259 15 Jun 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
260 fixed up build_kernel in ArchTemplate for build_mode as well as in dialogfe
261 and GenDialog. other gendialog updates as well. kernel updates untested.
262
263 14 Jun 2005; Robin H. Johnson <robbat2@gentoo.org>
264 src/GLIInstallProfile.py:
265 Change structure of etc-portage stuff. The serialization was broken before my
266 last commit, and I am the only person that's ever used it. The new schema is
267 as follows:
268 <etc-portage>
269 <file name="package.mask"/>
270 <file name="package.unmask">
271 <entry atom="sys-kernel/openmosix-sources"/>
272 </file>
273 <file name="package.use">
274 <entry atom="sys-libs/db">
275 -java
276 </entry>
277 <entry atom="dev-libs/cyrus-sasl">
278 -ldap
279 </entry>
280 </file>
281 </etc-portage>
282
283
284 13 Jun 2005; Robin H. Johnson <robbat2@gentoo.org>
285 src/GLIInstallProfile.py:
286 Add new entry for gli-profile/kernel-build-method item. Add missing
287 serialize_etc_portage (temporary). Make serialize_make_conf always print the
288 keys in the same order.
289
290 13 Jun 2005; Robin H. Johnson <robbat2@gentoo.org>
291 src/GLIArchitectureTemplate.py:
292 Clean up commenting used by _edit_config(), and fix bug where wrong comment
293 was repeatedly appended to make.conf.
294
295 13 Jun 2005; Robin H. Johnson <robbat2@gentoo.org>
296 src/GLIArchitectureTemplate.py:
297 Put some Linux-2.6 specific code under a if statement. Store list of
298 successfully mounted swap device for using swapoff. Add proper error checking
299 to install_packages and install_filesystem_tools. Fixed namespace conflicts on
300 'file'. Clean up some redundant code (thanks to pychecker).'
301
302 13 Jun 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
303 Fix typos: get_extended() instead of get_extended_partition(). Added
304 list_mirrors() and list_stage_tarballs_from_mirror() functions to GLIUtility.
305 Change _emerge("sync") call to direct call to spawn to avoid 'emerge -k sync'
306
307 12 Jun 2005; John N. Laliberte <allanonjl@gentoo.org>
308 GLIInstallProfile.py: add missing set for dhcp_options if a tuple is passed
309 in add_network_interface.
310
311 12 Jun 2005; Robin H. Johnson <robbat2@gentoo.org> src/GLIArchitectureTemplate.py:
312 ensure PORTAGE_TMPDIR/PORT_LOGDIR/PORTDIR_OVERLAY/PKGDIR exist prior to any
313 usage - this caused a failure for stage1/stage2 previously. swapoff for swap
314 space at end of install. Mount /dev, /dev/shm, /dev/pts and /sys during
315 prepare_chroot.
316
317 11 Jun 2005; Robin H. Johnson <robbat2@gentoo.org> +src/cli/clife.py,
318 +src/cli/README, +src/fe/installer-cli, +src/fe/installer-dialog,
319 +src/fe/installer-gtk:
320 Add new automated CLI frontend. Add scripts that are the intended means to
321 use each frontend.
322
323 11 Jun 2005; Robin H. Johnson <robbat2@gentoo.org>
324 src/GLIClientController.py:
325 Add null type to network config, for cases where the interface is already up
326 and should not be touched (netboot for example).
327
328 11 Jun 2005; Robin H. Johnson <robbat2@gentoo.org>
329 src/GLIArchitectureTemplate.py:
330 pcmcia is not a variable name for a call to _add_to_runlevel, it should be a
331 string!. Try to use binary packages if available by default.
332
333 11 Jun 2005; Robin H. Johnson <robbat2@gentoo.org>
334 src/GLIArchitectureTemplate.py:
335 More error checking for _add_to_runlevel, to ensure that the init script
336 actually exists before we try to add it. set_services phase must take place
337 after the package installation, otherwise the init scripts might not exist.
338 Find the correct init script for the cron and logging daemons, and add that
339 instead of the package atom.
340
341 11 Jun 2005; Robin H. Johnson <robbat2@gentoo.org>
342 src/GLIArchitectureTemplate.py:
343 Fix up _edit_config so that it works if the file doesn't already exist. Fix
344 usage of 'file' to 'contents' for the variable name, as it shadows
345 __builtin__.file.
346
347 11 Jun 2005; Robin H. Johnson <robbat2@gentoo.org>
348 src/GLIArchitectureTemplate.py:
349 Add MTA install code, and include MTA install phase. Ensure
350 PORT_LOGDIR/PORTDIR_OVERLAY are created in _emerge if needed. Add support
351 for 'none' kernel config for build_kernel phase. Put kernel_script in
352 /var/tmp instead of /root for build_kernel phase.
353
354 11 Jun 2005; Robin H. Johnson <robbat2@gentoo.org> src/GLIInstallProfile.py:
355 Rename mta variables to match syslog/cron variables.
356
357 11 Jun 2005; Robin H. Johnson <robbat2@gentoo.org>
358 src/GLIArchitectureTemplate.py, src/templates/x86ArchitectureTemplate.py,
359 src/.cvsignore, src/fe/dialog/.cvsignore, src/fe/gtk/.cvsignore,
360 src/fe/net/client/.cvsignore, src/fe/net/server/.cvsignore,
361 src/templates/.cvsignore, src/tests/.cvsignore:
362 Refactor partition formatting again to include error checking. Allow 'none'
363 for kernel and bootloader specifications. Add .cvsignore files for .py[co].
364
365 11 Jun 2005; Robin H. Johnson <robbat2@gentoo.org>
366 src/GLIArchitectureTemplate.py, src/templates/x86ArchitectureTemplate.py:
367 Refactor _emerge to remove duplicate code. Refactor mkfs code in backend to
368 only have a single spawn call.
369
370 11 Jun 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
371 refixed samyron's fix of set_architecture_template.
372
373 11 Jun 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
374 Move /tmp/spawn.sh and /tmp/post-install to /var/tmp since that should always
375 be executable.
6 376
7 10 Jun 2005; Scott Myron <samyron@gentoo.org> 377 10 Jun 2005; Scott Myron <samyron@gentoo.org>
8 Fixed one of the FIXME's in the ClientConfiguration. There is now some 378 Fixed one of the FIXME's in the ClientConfiguration. There is now some
9 error checking when you call set_architecture_template. 379 error checking when you call set_architecture_template.
