6 agaffney 337
7 codeman 409 23 Mar 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
8     small changes to setup_network_post. moved adding to runlevel of net.x to
9     after the device gets symlinked. added domainname runlevel command.
10    
11 agaffney 401 23 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
12 agaffney 408 minor fix (hopefully) to livecd-kernel code. Removed call to mkvardb in
13 agaffney 412 livecd-kernel code as it's now done by catalyst. Switch _emerge() call to
14     spawn() call in livecd-kernel code to pass environment variables.
15 agaffney 414 livecd-kernel code pulls PKGDIR and PORTAGE_TMPDIR from make.conf info in
16     the install profile if available.
17 agaffney 402
18     23 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
19 agaffney 401 Added code to build_kernel() and emerge_kernel_sources() in ArchTemplate
20     to handle installing the livecd kernel into the new system.
21    
22 codeman 395 22 Mar 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
23     should emerge hotplug and coldplug before adding them to runlevel.
24    
25 codeman 390 21 Mar 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
26 codeman 395 took chroot out of grub_install command.
27    
28     21 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
29     Changed chroot wrapper code in spawn() to write the wrapper the python way
30     instead of the bash way to avoid quote conflicts. Added
31 agaffney 392 'logfile=self._compile_logfile' to a number of spawn() calls. Added new
32 agaffney 394 hash_password() function to GLIUtility. Remove command to 'rm /tmp/spawn.sh'
33     as it breaks the piping.
34 codeman 390
35 codeman 387 20 Mar 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
36     Added the amd64ArchitectureTemplate, mostly a copy of x86 without lilo.
37    
38 agaffney 385 20 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
39     Added _get_packages_to_emerge() to GLIArchitectureTemplate and calls in
40 agaffney 386 stage1() and stage2(). Added 'origminor' parameter to GLIStorageDevice and
41 agaffney 389 GLIInstallProfile.
42 agaffney 385
43 agaffney 379 19 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
44 agaffney 384 Fixed a couple bugs in add_netmount() in GLIInstallProfile. spawn() outputs
45     to the actual tty8 with display_on_tty8 flag. Compile output logfile moved
46     into /mnt/gentoo in prepare_chroot()
47 agaffney 379
48 agaffney 375 18 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
49     Add sigunmask.c contributed by d_m (on freenode) to counteract python's
50 agaffney 377 retarted behavior regarding threads and signals. Add code to convert MB/%/*
51     to start/end sectors
52 agaffney 375
53     17 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
54 agaffney 374 Add 2>&1 to cmd in spawn()
55    
56 agaffney 369 16 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
57     Modified GLIUtility.exitsuccess() to work with return value from
58 agaffney 371 commands.getstatusoutput instead of os.waitpid(). spawn() automatically
59     creates wrapper script for commands run inside chroot so multiple commands
60 agaffney 373 and redirection can be used. Change exitsuccess() back. Added 'chmod a+x'
61     for the generated script from spawn()
62 agaffney 369
63 codeman 361 16 Mar 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
64     Removed default values for stage tarball URI and portage tree URI from
65     InstallProfile. These should be set by the FEs. also added services step to
66     ArchTemplate and coldplug/hotplug runlevels to the genkernel step.
67     Possibly fixed CC DHCP bug with -n. (thx agaffney)
68    
69 codeman 359 14 Mar 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
70     Small fix for setting the default gateway. Also added feature to dialogfe.
71    
72 agaffney 357 7 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
73     Switched spawn() over to commands.getstatusoutput() instead of fork/waitpid
74    
75 codeman 345 1 Mar 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
76 codeman 346 Fixed a bunch of true -> True typos. lots of em
77 codeman 347 only write new resolv.conf if there are dns servers listed.
78 codeman 345
79 agaffney 343 1 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
80     Commented out 'display_on_tty8=True' in start_portmap()
81    
82 codeman 341 18 Feb 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
83     added progress bar to dialogfe and fix logger bug in ArchTemplate.
84    
85 agaffney 337 18 Feb 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
86 agaffney 339 Created GLISayWhat module. Renamed GLISayWhat to GLILocalization. Moved
87     lang parameter to __init__()
88 codeman 331
89     10 Feb 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
90     updates to TODO list.
91 esammer 4
92 agaffney 322 6 Feb 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
93 agaffney 324 Initial code for quickpkg GRP support. Fix loop to grab packages from
94     'emerge -p blah'
95 agaffney 322
96 codeman 319 6 Feb 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
97 codeman 320 check for dhcp in the network stuff and emerge it if it is.
98     added quickpkg to TODO list
99 codeman 319
100 codeman 318 5 Feb 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
101     Changed the raising of 'warning' exceptions to a simple log of the error
102     so that the installer can continue.
103    
104 codeman 314 3 Feb 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
105     Some big changes. First, changed most output to display_on_tty8.
106     Second, added log lines to all templates. Some smaller fixes such as typos.
107     Also did some cleanups of old commented lines.
108    
109 agaffney 310 1 Feb 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
110 agaffney 312 Changed tty8 output to a fifo. Minor GLIStorageDevice fix thanks to BenUrban.
111 agaffney 313 Undo change with fix. Escaping fix in GLIStorageDevice.py
112 agaffney 310
113 codeman 306 31 Jan 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
114     more updates to TODO list. hopefully we'll soon start removing items instead
115     of adding them.
116    
117 agaffney 301 29 Jan 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
118     Changed the way GLIStorageDevice.get_max_sectors_for_resize() works
119    
120 codeman 293 27 Jan 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
121 codeman 295 updated TODO list. (again)
122 codeman 293
123 codeman 286 25 Jan 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
124     changed output of portmap start to display_on_tty8.
125     fixed bootloader for udev and multiple kernels
126 codeman 288 fixed custom kernel config (again)
127 codeman 286
128 codeman 281 22 Jan 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
129     changed default value of CC._enable_ssh to True because this is smart.
130 codeman 282 added code to allow custom kernel .config. may be unstable and break. sorry.
131 codeman 281
132 agaffney 278 21 Jan 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
133     partition() now waits until after it checks for partition flags before delete
134     the partitions :P
135    
136 agaffney 271 19 Jan 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
137 agaffney 272 Updated TODO. swapon failure it temporarily not an error. swapon is an error
138 agaffney 277 again. is_uri() check only performed on portage_tree_snapshot_uri if it isn't
139     blank.
140 agaffney 271
141 codeman 268 19 Jan 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
142     Various fixes related to the add_users function. Still not yet finished.
143 codeman 269 Added things to the TODO list. Lets start using that!
144 codeman 268
145 agaffney 264 18 Jan 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
146     Added code to x86Template to format newly created partitions. Also added
147 agaffney 265 some error checking code. GLIStorageDevice passes 'minor' with data to
148 agaffney 266 InstallProfile. Added partition() call back in ArchTemplate. Fixed NFS
149     mounting code.
150 agaffney 264
151 codeman 263 18 Jan 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
152     Took out unnecessary setting of random livecd root password. the cd already
153     sets it randomly.
154    
155 agaffney 255 15 Jan 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
156     Took out an unneeded step from CC's run()
157    
158 codeman 248 15 Jan 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
159     Attempt at detecting and adding windows partitions to lilo.
160    
161 codeman 235 14 Jan 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
162 codeman 237 Added lilo code and cleaned up lilo code. also do_partitioning renamed to
163     partition. fixed misc exit_status => exitstatus typo.
164 codeman 235
165 agaffney 230 11 Jan 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
166 agaffney 232 Added basic code for resizing filesystems with pyparted. Fixed code for
167     resizing ntfs and ext2/3.
168 agaffney 230
169 agaffney 228 10 Jan 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
170     Fixed partition() in x86Template so that it scans through logicals and deletes
171 agaffney 229 before deleting containing extended partition. Also clears partition table to
172     be safe before third pass.
173 agaffney 228
174 codeman 226 08 Jan 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
175     Added mount_network_shares. not able to test it from this computer.
176     will test when i get back to school.
177     also added start_portmap to the client_controller as an always-do.
178     agaffney says this is needed for NFS mounts to work.
179    
180 agaffney 225 08 Jan 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
181     Partial rewrite of partitioning code in x86Template. No longer shells out to
182     parted to perform actions, now uses all pyparted calls. Code "works" in a
183     test, but still needs lots of TLC. Also modified tests/install.py to work
184     with x86Template and GLIClientConfiguration.
185    
186 agaffney 221 07 Jan 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
187     Initial move of partitioning code from ArchTemplate to x86Template.
188 agaffney 220
189 codeman 219 07 Jan 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
190 agaffney 224 Added grp_install and services to InstallProfile. forgot about the set_root_password
191 codeman 222
192     07 Jan 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
193 codeman 219 Fixed a few more edit_configs. fixed a chroot multicommand bug thanks to agaffney.
194     Test Install ran very well (skipping partitioning).
195    
196 codeman 213 05 Jan 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
197 codeman 215 My mid-day update. rewrote mount_local_partitions for order of mounting. fixed prepare_chroot
198 codeman 216 rewrote configure_fstab and install_bootloader for new partition format. fixed a few _edit_configs.
199     some may still have eluded me.
200 codeman 215
201     05 Jan 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
202 codeman 213 Overhauled the entire ArchTemplate and did a lot of other misc fixes in order to test it.
203     Just finished mount_local_partitions in GLIArchitectureTemplate
204    
205 agaffney 212 05 Jan 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
206     Added get_num_sectors() to GLIStorageDevice.
207    
208     04 Jan 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
209 agaffney 205 GLIStorageDevice now tracks partition boundaries in sectors instead of cylinders.
210 agaffney 208 Also now ignores <=100 sectors for free space. Removed remaining depends stuff
211     from GLIInstallProfile.
212 agaffney 205
213 agaffney 188 20 Dec 2004; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
214     GLIStorageDevice returns "unknown" instead of "" for get_type()
215    
216 agaffney 183 19 Dec 2004; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
217 agaffney 184 Added get_extended_partition() to GLIStorageDevice. Rewrote get_logicals() to
218     actually work. Commented out resizability checking code for speed.
219 agaffney 183
220 agaffney 174 17 Dec 2004; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
221     Switched to using dumpe2fs to determine free space left in ext2/3 filesystem in
222     GLIStorageDevice at the suggestion of plors
223    
224 agaffney 162 10 Dec 2004; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
225     Added a function to GLIUtility to pull a value from a make.conf-style config
226 agaffney 163 file. Minor type fix to GLIInstallProfile.py
227 agaffney 162
228 agaffney 160 09 Dec 2004; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
229 agaffney 163 Added code in GLIArchitectureTemplate.py to write netmounts into fstab. Separated
230     network mounts from partition data structure in GLIInstallProfile
231 agaffney 161
232 agaffney 147 27 Nov 2004; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
233     Changed the way GLIStorageDevice.py determines the amount a ext2/3 filesystem
234     can be resized.
235    
236 codeman 91 27 Oct 2004; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
237     Added some of the final functions to GLIInstallTemplate.
238     Yes this project is still active despite rare use of the Changelog!
239    
240 npmccallum 58 11 Jun 2004; Nathaniel McCallum <npmccallum@gentoo.org>
241     Added the GLIPartitionTools.py file. This is a temporary insertion of
242     partitioning tools that will eventually go into their own package.
243    
244 npmccallum 33 27 Mar 2004; Nathaniel McCallum <npmccallum@gentoo.org>
245     Added InstallProfileTODO.txt. Added GLIClientConfiguration.py (contains run-time
246     for the program). Added __init__(install_profile, client_configuration) to
247     GLI.InstallProfile. This sets install_profile and client_configuration once so as
248     to avoid constantly passing stuff every time we call a method.
249    
250 npmccallum 28 26 Mar 2004; Nathaniel McCallum <npmccallum@gentoo.org>
251    
252     Added another private method to GLI.InstallTemplate. _edit_config() modifies config
253     files without messing up all the other stuff in them. This will be used for making
254     changes to make.conf, rc.conf, /etc/conf.d/net, etc...
255    
256 npmccallum 27 25 Mar 2004; Nathaniel McCallum <npmccallum@gentoo.org>
257    
258     Added GLI.InstallTemplate framework. This is not yet functional. However, it does
259     have a few basic things. I added two private methods. One is _depends(). This
260     will be used for dependency checking (ie. unpacking a tarball requires that
261     partitioning has been done). The other is _exec_in_chroot(). This is the exact
262     same syntax as os.system(), however, instead of being run in the liveCD
263     environment, it runs in the chroot. This requires a bit of fork() magic, so I
264     isolated the code. Hope to work more this week to get this class formed...
265    
266 esammer 7 14 Feb 2004; Eric Sammer <esammer@gentoo.org>
267    
268     Added SAX parsing. Made GLI.InstallProfile a subclass of xml.sax.ContentHandler for
269     obvious reasons. Switched kernel_modules and users to be lists instead of tuples
270     to allow for easier modification (mutable, rather than immutable objects). Updated
271     existing pydoc and added more. Implemented body of GLI.InstallProfile.parse().
272     Cleaned file format of GLI.py a bit. Fixed all accessors to use self references.
273     Added initial unit test code.
274    
275 esammer 4 9 Feb 2004; Eric Sammer <esammer@gentoo.org>
276    
277     Added initial changelog. Setting up the basic structure of the CVS repository
278     for the project. Added the UML class diagram in docs. Added a skeletal GLI
279     python module. Added misc files such news, authors, etc.
