 * linaro-fetch-image-ui:

 * All hardware that is available is shown on page 1
 * If you chose hardware that doesn't have a build type available (release or snapshot) that build type is greyed out on page 2 with some help text saying why.

 * linaro_image_tools/media_create/boards.py:

 Look for u-boot.img before u-boot.bin which is needed when u-boot SPL is enabled for Pandaboard.

2011-08-19 Mattias Backman <email address hidden>

 * linaro_image_tools/media_create/boards.py:

 Check for u-boot.img to be copied to the boot partition. If u-boot.img is not found, use u-boot.bin.

 * linaro-fetch-image-ui:

 Updates around the end of the GUI:
 * LMC settings page has advanced settings done properly
 * New device choser
 * New are you sure question when writing image to device.

2011-08-18 James Tunnicliffe <email address hidden>

 * linaro-fetch-image-ui:

 Added an OK device choser. Unfortunately most of the information that you can get over dbus (http://hal.freedesktop.org/docs/DeviceKit-disks/Device.html) is mostly useless. My guess is that hard disks are much better supported than finding out about an SD card hanging of a USB writer.

2011-08-18 James Tunnicliffe <email address hidden>

 * linaro-fetch-image-ui:

 Trying to get a decent dev choser. Not working so far!

2011-08-18 James Tunnicliffe <email address hidden>

 * linaro-fetch-image-ui:

 lmc_settings page updates:
 * Removed "are you sure" tick box

 * Saying you want to run a simulation will generate a Beagle image to run on QEMU (tool does not run QEMU for you)
 * Advanced options on page 2 allow for selecting an OS that isn't Ubuntu Desktop
 * Unless you are selecting a snapshot build, page 3 is now linaro-media-create settings

 Part 3 of the updates will concentrate on the linaro-media-create settings page.

2011-08-17 James Tunnicliffe <email address hidden>

 Modifications that change the fetch image library unit tests to use local files, not downloaded ones.

2011-08-17 James Tunnicliffe <email address hidden>

 * linaro_image_tools/tests/test_fetch_image.py:

 switch from using inspect to __file__ to determine the current file. While this is potentially less reliable, it is consistent with the rest of the code.

2011-08-11 James Tunnicliffe <email address hidden>

 * linaro_image_tools/tests/test_fetch_image.py:

 Fix possible problem with using a really old database for the test.

 * linaro-fetch-image:
 * linaro_image_tools/fetch_image.py:

 * linaro-fetch-image:

 Quick spell check for the release/snapshot CLI parameter.

2011-08-15 James Tunnicliffe <email address hidden>

 * linaro_image_tools/fetch_image.py:
 * linaro_image_tools/utils.py:

 GPG interaction now uses --status-file to give us language independent output.

2011-08-15 James Tunnicliffe <email address hidden>

 * linaro_image_tools/fetch_image.py:

 Found another message not being passed as a tuple.

2011-08-15 James Tunnicliffe <email address hidden>

 * linaro_image_tools/fetch_image.py:
 * linaro_image_tools/tests/test_utils.py:
 * linaro_image_tools/utils.py:

 Bug fix: Was not passing a message correctly into the message queue correctly (not sent as tuple)
 linaro-fetch-image[-ui] copes with GPG signates failing because the GPG key is missing from the users keyring more sensibly.

2011-08-15 James Tunnicliffe <email address hidden>

 * linaro_image_tools/fetch_image_settings.yaml:

 Added back some required parts of the YAML that didn't get added to bzr.

 * linaro-hwpack-replace:

 hwpack-replace: allow the caller to specify a prefix of packages to remove.

2011-08-11 Deepti B. Kalakeri<email address hidden>

 * linaro-hwpack-replace:

 Adding a small comment and including the descrption abt hwpack removal into should_remove() and using the string to directly compare instead of string substitution

2011-08-11 Deepti B. Kalakeri<email address hidden>

 * linaro-hwpack-replace:

 Addressing comments to include a small function (should_remove) to verify if package information
 needs to be removed from the Packages and manifest file. Also, use the same function to remove
 the debian packages matching the prefix of the package specified.

2011-08-05 Deepti B. Kalakeri<email address hidden>

 * linaro-hwpack-replace:

 Changes to make it work for non linaro hwpack instead of making it work for linaro hwpack only

2011-08-05 Deepti B. Kalakeri<email address hidden>

 * linaro-hwpack-replace:

 Removing un necessary backslash

2011-08-05 Deepti B. Kalakeri<email address hidden>

 * linaro-hwpack-replace:

 This patch addresses review comments with the following changes:
 1) Improve the description of the --prefix-pkg-remove arguement of l-h-r
 2) Rectified indentation problem and removed un necessary backslash
 3) Removed un used debian_pack_found variable
 4) Gave a comment on why we need to remove the hwpack-linaro-* info

2011-08-04 Deepti B. Kalakeri<email address hidden>

 * linaro-hwpack-replace:

 This patch fixes the bug Bug #816767 [linaro-hwpack-replace only replace same name deb pkg but in fact it needs a smart match]
 It now replaces old deb (with a different name) package with a new hwpack,
 so that l-m-c can determine which package is to be installed in later hwpack installation.
 The changes adds the new option --prefix-pkg-remove to handle this where the user is needed to provide the
 prefix of the debian package that needs to be removed while including the new one.

 * linaro_image_tools/media_create/boards.py:
 * linaro_image_tools/media_create/tests/test_media_create.py:

 Set initrd_high and fdt_high u-boot env vars on Panda.

2011-07-09 David A. Long <email address hidden>

 * linaro_image_tools/media_create/boards.py:
 * linaro_image_tools/media_create/tests/test_media_create.py:

 Set the initrd_high and the new fdt_high u-boot environment variables to prevent u-boot
 from relocating the intial ramdisk and flattened device tree to the end of memory,
 which would be in HIGHMEM on Panda and would therefore not work.

2011-08-10 James Westby <email address hidden>

 * linaro_image_tools/hwpack/packages.py:
 * linaro_image_tools/hwpack/tests/test_packages.py:

 Create /etc/apt/sources.list.d in IsolatedAptCache. Thanks to Rex Tsai.

 Newer apts require this dir to function, and so we have to create it in
 our temp apt hierarchy.

 * setup.py:

 Merge lp:~lool/linaro-image-tools/initrd-do; adds a script to edit an initrd

 pyflakes: drop unused variable redownloaded_files.

2011-07-28 Loïc Minier <email address hidden>

 * linaro_image_tools/fetch_image.py:

 pyflakes: gpg_files should be self.gpg_files; this is unused in both cases, so
 should perhaps be removed.

2011-07-28 Loïc Minier <email address hidden>

 * linaro_image_tools/hwpack/builder.py:

 Split with statement in two for compatibility with older pythons.

2011-07-27 James Tunnicliffe <email address hidden>

 * linaro-fetch-image-ui:
 * linaro_image_tools/fetch_image.py:

 1. fetch-image-ui now examines the return code of linaro-media-create and reports failures to the UI.
