300 Changed setup_network_post to check for 'interfaces[interface][0] != "dhcp"'

322 defaults to "" now instead of "msdos" for disklabel type. Fix for
323 mount_local_partitions() to remember device along with minor in the
324 parts_to_mount dict (closes #96319). mount_local_partitions() cleanups and
325 add else block to log unsupported netmount types to mount_network_shares()
326

346 14 Jun 2005; Robin H. Johnson <robbat2@gentoo.org>
347 src/GLIInstallProfile.py:
348 Change structure of etc-portage stuff. The serialization was broken before my
349 last commit, and I am the only person that's ever used it. The new schema is
350 as follows:
351 <etc-portage>
352 <file name="package.mask"/>
353 <file name="package.unmask">
354 <entry atom="sys-kernel/openmosix-sources"/>
355 </file>
356 <file name="package.use">
357 <entry atom="sys-libs/db">
358 -java
359 </entry>
360 <entry atom="dev-libs/cyrus-sasl">

374 src/GLIArchitectureTemplate.py:

376 was repeatedly appended to make.conf.
377
378 13 Jun 2005; Robin H. Johnson <robbat2@gentoo.org>
379 src/GLIArchitectureTemplate.py:
380 Put some Linux-2.6 specific code under a if statement. Store list of
381 successfully mounted swap device for using swapoff. Add proper error checking
382 to install_packages and install_filesystem_tools. Fixed namespace conflicts on
383 'file'. Clean up some redundant code (thanks to pychecker).'
