6 agaffney 337
7 agaffney 451 28 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
8 agaffney 452 Added 'append_log=True' to all spawn() calls using logfile=. Append to log
9     when unpacking tarball.
10 agaffney 451
11 codeman 443 28 Mar 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
12 codeman 446 rewrote filesystem_tools. looks like it works so ripping out all the old
13     filesystem_tools code.
14 codeman 443
15 codeman 427 26 Mar 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
16     Changed the print statements to logging in the partitioning BE code.
17     the logger may need to be imported to the x86archtemplate. unknown yet.
18 codeman 432 Added the finishing_cleanup function.
19 codeman 433 added a fix to the logger from BenUrban
20 codeman 427
21 codeman 422 25 Mar 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
22     changed InstallProfile to remove is_uri check on kernel, stage, and portage
23     URIs. The blank uri check has been commented out.
24 codeman 426 ripped out error checking of set_services. this is done by _add_to_runlevel.
25 codeman 422
26 agaffney 419 25 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
27     set_stage_tarball_uri() doesn't raise an exception on a blank string.
28    
29 agaffney 415 24 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
30     GRP-ish quickpkg code pulls PKGDIR and PORTAGE_TMPDIR from make.conf info in
31 agaffney 416 the install profile if available. Commented out spawn() debugging prints
32 agaffney 415
33 codeman 409 23 Mar 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
34     small changes to setup_network_post. moved adding to runlevel of net.x to
35     after the device gets symlinked. added domainname runlevel command.
36    
37 agaffney 401 23 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
38 agaffney 408 minor fix (hopefully) to livecd-kernel code. Removed call to mkvardb in
39 agaffney 412 livecd-kernel code as it's now done by catalyst. Switch _emerge() call to
40     spawn() call in livecd-kernel code to pass environment variables.
41 agaffney 414 livecd-kernel code pulls PKGDIR and PORTAGE_TMPDIR from make.conf info in
42     the install profile if available.
43 agaffney 402
44     23 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
45 agaffney 401 Added code to build_kernel() and emerge_kernel_sources() in ArchTemplate
46     to handle installing the livecd kernel into the new system.
47    
48 codeman 395 22 Mar 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
49     should emerge hotplug and coldplug before adding them to runlevel.
50    
51 codeman 390 21 Mar 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
52 codeman 395 took chroot out of grub_install command.
53    
54     21 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
55     Changed chroot wrapper code in spawn() to write the wrapper the python way
56     instead of the bash way to avoid quote conflicts. Added
57 agaffney 392 'logfile=self._compile_logfile' to a number of spawn() calls. Added new
58 agaffney 394 hash_password() function to GLIUtility. Remove command to 'rm /tmp/spawn.sh'
59     as it breaks the piping.
60 codeman 390
61 codeman 387 20 Mar 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
62     Added the amd64ArchitectureTemplate, mostly a copy of x86 without lilo.
63    
64 agaffney 385 20 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
65     Added _get_packages_to_emerge() to GLIArchitectureTemplate and calls in
66 agaffney 386 stage1() and stage2(). Added 'origminor' parameter to GLIStorageDevice and
67 agaffney 389 GLIInstallProfile.
68 agaffney 385
69 agaffney 379 19 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
70 agaffney 384 Fixed a couple bugs in add_netmount() in GLIInstallProfile. spawn() outputs
71     to the actual tty8 with display_on_tty8 flag. Compile output logfile moved
72     into /mnt/gentoo in prepare_chroot()
73 agaffney 379
74 agaffney 375 18 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
75     Add sigunmask.c contributed by d_m (on freenode) to counteract python's
76 agaffney 377 retarted behavior regarding threads and signals. Add code to convert MB/%/*
77     to start/end sectors
78 agaffney 375
79     17 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
80 agaffney 374 Add 2>&1 to cmd in spawn()
81    
82 agaffney 369 16 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
83     Modified GLIUtility.exitsuccess() to work with return value from
84 agaffney 371 commands.getstatusoutput instead of os.waitpid(). spawn() automatically
85     creates wrapper script for commands run inside chroot so multiple commands
86 agaffney 373 and redirection can be used. Change exitsuccess() back. Added 'chmod a+x'
87     for the generated script from spawn()
88 agaffney 369
89 codeman 361 16 Mar 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
90     Removed default values for stage tarball URI and portage tree URI from
91     InstallProfile. These should be set by the FEs. also added services step to
92     ArchTemplate and coldplug/hotplug runlevels to the genkernel step.
93     Possibly fixed CC DHCP bug with -n. (thx agaffney)
94    
95 codeman 359 14 Mar 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
96     Small fix for setting the default gateway. Also added feature to dialogfe.
97    
98 agaffney 357 7 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
99     Switched spawn() over to commands.getstatusoutput() instead of fork/waitpid
100    
101 codeman 345 1 Mar 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
102 codeman 346 Fixed a bunch of true -> True typos. lots of em
103 codeman 347 only write new resolv.conf if there are dns servers listed.
104 codeman 345
105 agaffney 343 1 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
106     Commented out 'display_on_tty8=True' in start_portmap()
107    
108 codeman 341 18 Feb 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
109     added progress bar to dialogfe and fix logger bug in ArchTemplate.
110    
111 agaffney 337 18 Feb 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
112 agaffney 339 Created GLISayWhat module. Renamed GLISayWhat to GLILocalization. Moved
113     lang parameter to __init__()
114 codeman 331

124     added quickpkg to TODO list
125 codeman 319
126 codeman 318 5 Feb 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
127     Changed the raising of 'warning' exceptions to a simple log of the error
128     so that the installer can continue.
129    
130 codeman 314 3 Feb 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
131     Some big changes. First, changed most output to display_on_tty8.

138 agaffney 310
139 codeman 306 31 Jan 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
140     more updates to TODO list. hopefully we'll soon start removing items instead
141     of adding them.
142    
143 agaffney 301 29 Jan 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
144     Changed the way GLIStorageDevice.get_max_sectors_for_resize() works
145

153 codeman 286
154 codeman 281 22 Jan 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
155     changed default value of CC._enable_ssh to True because this is smart.
156 codeman 282 added code to allow custom kernel .config. may be unstable and break. sorry.
157 codeman 281
158 agaffney 278 21 Jan 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
159     partition() now waits until after it checks for partition flags before delete
160     the partitions :P
161    
162 agaffney 271 19 Jan 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
163 agaffney 272 Updated TODO. swapon failure it temporarily not an error. swapon is an error
164 agaffney 277 again. is_uri() check only performed on portage_tree_snapshot_uri if it isn't
165     blank.
166 agaffney 271
167 codeman 268 19 Jan 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
168     Various fixes related to the add_users function. Still not yet finished.
169 codeman 269 Added things to the TODO list. Lets start using that!
170 codeman 268
171 agaffney 264 18 Jan 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
172     Added code to x86Template to format newly created partitions. Also added
173 agaffney 265 some error checking code. GLIStorageDevice passes 'minor' with data to
174 agaffney 266 InstallProfile. Added partition() call back in ArchTemplate. Fixed NFS
175     mounting code.
176 agaffney 264
177 codeman 263 18 Jan 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
178     Took out unnecessary setting of random livecd root password. the cd already
179     sets it randomly.
180    
181 agaffney 255 15 Jan 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
182     Took out an unneeded step from CC's run()
183    
184 codeman 248 15 Jan 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
185     Attempt at detecting and adding windows partitions to lilo.
186    
187 codeman 235 14 Jan 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
188 codeman 237 Added lilo code and cleaned up lilo code. also do_partitioning renamed to
189     partition. fixed misc exit_status => exitstatus typo.
190 codeman 235
191 agaffney 230 11 Jan 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
192 agaffney 232 Added basic code for resizing filesystems with pyparted. Fixed code for
193     resizing ntfs and ext2/3.
194 agaffney 230
195 agaffney 228 10 Jan 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
196     Fixed partition() in x86Template so that it scans through logicals and deletes
197 agaffney 229 before deleting containing extended partition. Also clears partition table to
198     be safe before third pass.
199 agaffney 228
200 codeman 226 08 Jan 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
201     Added mount_network_shares. not able to test it from this computer.
202     will test when i get back to school.
203     also added start_portmap to the client_controller as an always-do.
204     agaffney says this is needed for NFS mounts to work.
205    
206 agaffney 225 08 Jan 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
207     Partial rewrite of partitioning code in x86Template. No longer shells out to
208     parted to perform actions, now uses all pyparted calls. Code "works" in a
209     test, but still needs lots of TLC. Also modified tests/install.py to work
210     with x86Template and GLIClientConfiguration.
211    
212 agaffney 221 07 Jan 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
213     Initial move of partitioning code from ArchTemplate to x86Template.
214 agaffney 220
215 codeman 219 07 Jan 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
216 agaffney 224 Added grp_install and services to InstallProfile. forgot about the set_root_password
217 codeman 222
218     07 Jan 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
219 codeman 219 Fixed a few more edit_configs. fixed a chroot multicommand bug thanks to agaffney.
220     Test Install ran very well (skipping partitioning).
221    
222 codeman 213 05 Jan 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
223 codeman 215 My mid-day update. rewrote mount_local_partitions for order of mounting. fixed prepare_chroot
224 codeman 216 rewrote configure_fstab and install_bootloader for new partition format. fixed a few _edit_configs.
225     some may still have eluded me.
226 codeman 215
227     05 Jan 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
228 codeman 213 Overhauled the entire ArchTemplate and did a lot of other misc fixes in order to test it.
229     Just finished mount_local_partitions in GLIArchitectureTemplate
230    
231 agaffney 212 05 Jan 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
232     Added get_num_sectors() to GLIStorageDevice.
233    
234     04 Jan 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
235 agaffney 205 GLIStorageDevice now tracks partition boundaries in sectors instead of cylinders.
236 agaffney 208 Also now ignores <=100 sectors for free space. Removed remaining depends stuff
237     from GLIInstallProfile.
238 agaffney 205
239 agaffney 188 20 Dec 2004; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
240     GLIStorageDevice returns "unknown" instead of "" for get_type()
241    
242 agaffney 183 19 Dec 2004; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
243 agaffney 184 Added get_extended_partition() to GLIStorageDevice. Rewrote get_logicals() to
244     actually work. Commented out resizability checking code for speed.
245 agaffney 183
246 agaffney 174 17 Dec 2004; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
247     Switched to using dumpe2fs to determine free space left in ext2/3 filesystem in
248     GLIStorageDevice at the suggestion of plors
249    
250 agaffney 162 10 Dec 2004; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
251     Added a function to GLIUtility to pull a value from a make.conf-style config
252 agaffney 163 file. Minor type fix to GLIInstallProfile.py
253 agaffney 162
254 agaffney 160 09 Dec 2004; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
255 agaffney 163 Added code in GLIArchitectureTemplate.py to write netmounts into fstab. Separated
256     network mounts from partition data structure in GLIInstallProfile
257 agaffney 161
258 agaffney 147 27 Nov 2004; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
259     Changed the way GLIStorageDevice.py determines the amount a ext2/3 filesystem
260     can be resized.
261    
262 codeman 91 27 Oct 2004; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
263     Added some of the final functions to GLIInstallTemplate.
264     Yes this project is still active despite rare use of the Changelog!
265    
266 npmccallum 58 11 Jun 2004; Nathaniel McCallum <npmccallum@gentoo.org>
267     Added the GLIPartitionTools.py file. This is a temporary insertion of
268     partitioning tools that will eventually go into their own package.
269    
270 npmccallum 33 27 Mar 2004; Nathaniel McCallum <npmccallum@gentoo.org>
271     Added InstallProfileTODO.txt. Added GLIClientConfiguration.py (contains run-time
272     for the program). Added __init__(install_profile, client_configuration) to
273     GLI.InstallProfile. This sets install_profile and client_configuration once so as
274     to avoid constantly passing stuff every time we call a method.
275    
276 npmccallum 28 26 Mar 2004; Nathaniel McCallum <npmccallum@gentoo.org>
277    
278     Added another private method to GLI.InstallTemplate. _edit_config() modifies config
279     files without messing up all the other stuff in them. This will be used for making
280     changes to make.conf, rc.conf, /etc/conf.d/net, etc...
281    
282 npmccallum 27 25 Mar 2004; Nathaniel McCallum <npmccallum@gentoo.org>
283    
284     Added GLI.InstallTemplate framework. This is not yet functional. However, it does
285     have a few basic things. I added two private methods. One is _depends(). This
286     will be used for dependency checking (ie. unpacking a tarball requires that
287     partitioning has been done). The other is _exec_in_chroot(). This is the exact
288     same syntax as os.system(), however, instead of being run in the liveCD
289     environment, it runs in the chroot. This requires a bit of fork() magic, so I
290     isolated the code. Hope to work more this week to get this class formed...
291    
292 esammer 7 14 Feb 2004; Eric Sammer <esammer@gentoo.org>
293    
294     Added SAX parsing. Made GLI.InstallProfile a subclass of xml.sax.ContentHandler for
295     obvious reasons. Switched kernel_modules and users to be lists instead of tuples
296     to allow for easier modification (mutable, rather than immutable objects). Updated
297     existing pydoc and added more. Implemented body of GLI.InstallProfile.parse().
298     Cleaned file format of GLI.py a bit. Fixed all accessors to use self references.
299     Added initial unit test code.
300    
301 esammer 4 9 Feb 2004; Eric Sammer <esammer@gentoo.org>
302    
303     Added initial changelog. Setting up the basic structure of the CVS repository
304     for the project. Added the UML class diagram in docs. Added a skeletal GLI
305     python module. Added misc files such news, authors, etc.
