6 agaffney 337
7 agaffney 453 29 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
8     Remove /tmp/compile_output.log and /var/log/install.log when install is
9 agaffney 456 complete. Added code to (hopefully) keep 2nd thread running after install.
10 agaffney 458 Patch from zahna for extra arguments to the kernel. Patch from zahna to add
11 agaffney 460 get_eth_info() function. Remove most of content in amd64ArchTemplate and
12 agaffney 461 make it inherit from x86Archtemplate. kernel_args -> bootloader_kernel_args
13 agaffney 453
14 agaffney 451 28 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
15 agaffney 452 Added 'append_log=True' to all spawn() calls using logfile=. Append to log
16     when unpacking tarball.
17 agaffney 451
18 codeman 443 28 Mar 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
19 codeman 446 rewrote filesystem_tools. looks like it works so ripping out all the old
20     filesystem_tools code.
21 codeman 443
22 codeman 427 26 Mar 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
23     Changed the print statements to logging in the partitioning BE code.
24     the logger may need to be imported to the x86archtemplate. unknown yet.
25 codeman 432 Added the finishing_cleanup function.
26 codeman 433 added a fix to the logger from BenUrban
27 codeman 427
28 codeman 422 25 Mar 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
29     changed InstallProfile to remove is_uri check on kernel, stage, and portage
30     URIs. The blank uri check has been commented out.
31 codeman 426 ripped out error checking of set_services. this is done by _add_to_runlevel.
32 codeman 422
33 agaffney 419 25 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
34     set_stage_tarball_uri() doesn't raise an exception on a blank string.
35    
36 agaffney 415 24 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
37     GRP-ish quickpkg code pulls PKGDIR and PORTAGE_TMPDIR from make.conf info in
38 agaffney 416 the install profile if available. Commented out spawn() debugging prints
39 agaffney 415
40 codeman 409 23 Mar 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
41     small changes to setup_network_post. moved adding to runlevel of net.x to
42     after the device gets symlinked. added domainname runlevel command.
43    
44 agaffney 401 23 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
45 agaffney 408 minor fix (hopefully) to livecd-kernel code. Removed call to mkvardb in
46 agaffney 412 livecd-kernel code as it's now done by catalyst. Switch _emerge() call to
47     spawn() call in livecd-kernel code to pass environment variables.
48 agaffney 414 livecd-kernel code pulls PKGDIR and PORTAGE_TMPDIR from make.conf info in
49     the install profile if available.
50 agaffney 402
51     23 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
52 agaffney 401 Added code to build_kernel() and emerge_kernel_sources() in ArchTemplate
53     to handle installing the livecd kernel into the new system.
54    
55 codeman 395 22 Mar 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
56     should emerge hotplug and coldplug before adding them to runlevel.
57    
58 codeman 390 21 Mar 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
59 codeman 395 took chroot out of grub_install command.
60    
61     21 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
62     Changed chroot wrapper code in spawn() to write the wrapper the python way
63     instead of the bash way to avoid quote conflicts. Added
64 agaffney 392 'logfile=self._compile_logfile' to a number of spawn() calls. Added new
65 agaffney 394 hash_password() function to GLIUtility. Remove command to 'rm /tmp/spawn.sh'
66     as it breaks the piping.
67 codeman 390
68 codeman 387 20 Mar 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
69     Added the amd64ArchitectureTemplate, mostly a copy of x86 without lilo.
70    
71 agaffney 385 20 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
72     Added _get_packages_to_emerge() to GLIArchitectureTemplate and calls in
73 agaffney 386 stage1() and stage2(). Added 'origminor' parameter to GLIStorageDevice and
74 agaffney 389 GLIInstallProfile.
75 agaffney 385
76 agaffney 379 19 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
77 agaffney 384 Fixed a couple bugs in add_netmount() in GLIInstallProfile. spawn() outputs
78     to the actual tty8 with display_on_tty8 flag. Compile output logfile moved
79     into /mnt/gentoo in prepare_chroot()
80 agaffney 379
81 agaffney 375 18 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
82     Add sigunmask.c contributed by d_m (on freenode) to counteract python's
83 agaffney 377 retarted behavior regarding threads and signals. Add code to convert MB/%/*
84     to start/end sectors
85 agaffney 375
86     17 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
87 agaffney 374 Add 2>&1 to cmd in spawn()
88    
89 agaffney 369 16 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
90     Modified GLIUtility.exitsuccess() to work with return value from
91 agaffney 371 commands.getstatusoutput instead of os.waitpid(). spawn() automatically
92     creates wrapper script for commands run inside chroot so multiple commands
93 agaffney 373 and redirection can be used. Change exitsuccess() back. Added 'chmod a+x'
94     for the generated script from spawn()
95 agaffney 369
96 codeman 361 16 Mar 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
97     Removed default values for stage tarball URI and portage tree URI from
98     InstallProfile. These should be set by the FEs. also added services step to
99     ArchTemplate and coldplug/hotplug runlevels to the genkernel step.
100     Possibly fixed CC DHCP bug with -n. (thx agaffney)
101    
102 codeman 359 14 Mar 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
103     Small fix for setting the default gateway. Also added feature to dialogfe.
104    
105 agaffney 357 7 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
106     Switched spawn() over to commands.getstatusoutput() instead of fork/waitpid
107    
108 codeman 345 1 Mar 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
109 codeman 346 Fixed a bunch of true -> True typos. lots of em
110 codeman 347 only write new resolv.conf if there are dns servers listed.
111 codeman 345
112 agaffney 343 1 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
113     Commented out 'display_on_tty8=True' in start_portmap()
114    
115 codeman 341 18 Feb 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
116     added progress bar to dialogfe and fix logger bug in ArchTemplate.
117    
118 agaffney 337 18 Feb 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
119 agaffney 339 Created GLISayWhat module. Renamed GLISayWhat to GLILocalization. Moved
120     lang parameter to __init__()
121 codeman 331
122     10 Feb 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>

128 agaffney 322
129 codeman 319 6 Feb 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
130 codeman 320 check for dhcp in the network stuff and emerge it if it is.
131     added quickpkg to TODO list
132 codeman 319
133 codeman 318 5 Feb 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
134     Changed the raising of 'warning' exceptions to a simple log of the error
135     so that the installer can continue.
136    
137 codeman 314 3 Feb 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
138     Some big changes. First, changed most output to display_on_tty8.
139     Second, added log lines to all templates. Some smaller fixes such as typos.
140     Also did some cleanups of old commented lines.
141    
142 agaffney 310 1 Feb 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>

144 agaffney 313 Undo change with fix. Escaping fix in GLIStorageDevice.py
145 agaffney 310
146 codeman 306 31 Jan 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
147     more updates to TODO list. hopefully we'll soon start removing items instead
148     of adding them.
149    
150 agaffney 301 29 Jan 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
151     Changed the way GLIStorageDevice.get_max_sectors_for_resize() works
152    
153 codeman 293 27 Jan 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
154 codeman 295 updated TODO list. (again)
155 codeman 293

159 codeman 288 fixed custom kernel config (again)
160 codeman 286
161 codeman 281 22 Jan 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
162     changed default value of CC._enable_ssh to True because this is smart.
163 codeman 282 added code to allow custom kernel .config. may be unstable and break. sorry.
164 codeman 281
165 agaffney 278 21 Jan 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
166     partition() now waits until after it checks for partition flags before delete
167     the partitions :P
168    
169 agaffney 271 19 Jan 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
170 agaffney 272 Updated TODO. swapon failure it temporarily not an error. swapon is an error
171 agaffney 277 again. is_uri() check only performed on portage_tree_snapshot_uri if it isn't
172     blank.
173 agaffney 271
174 codeman 268 19 Jan 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
175     Various fixes related to the add_users function. Still not yet finished.
176 codeman 269 Added things to the TODO list. Lets start using that!
177 codeman 268
178 agaffney 264 18 Jan 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
179     Added code to x86Template to format newly created partitions. Also added
180 agaffney 265 some error checking code. GLIStorageDevice passes 'minor' with data to
181 agaffney 266 InstallProfile. Added partition() call back in ArchTemplate. Fixed NFS
182     mounting code.
183 agaffney 264
184 codeman 263 18 Jan 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
185     Took out unnecessary setting of random livecd root password. the cd already
186     sets it randomly.
187    
188 agaffney 255 15 Jan 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
189     Took out an unneeded step from CC's run()
190    
191 codeman 248 15 Jan 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
192     Attempt at detecting and adding windows partitions to lilo.
193    
194 codeman 235 14 Jan 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
195 codeman 237 Added lilo code and cleaned up lilo code. also do_partitioning renamed to
196     partition. fixed misc exit_status => exitstatus typo.
197 codeman 235
198 agaffney 230 11 Jan 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
199 agaffney 232 Added basic code for resizing filesystems with pyparted. Fixed code for
200     resizing ntfs and ext2/3.
201 agaffney 230
202 agaffney 228 10 Jan 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
203     Fixed partition() in x86Template so that it scans through logicals and deletes
204 agaffney 229 before deleting containing extended partition. Also clears partition table to
205     be safe before third pass.
206 agaffney 228
207 codeman 226 08 Jan 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
208     Added mount_network_shares. not able to test it from this computer.
209     will test when i get back to school.
210     also added start_portmap to the client_controller as an always-do.
211     agaffney says this is needed for NFS mounts to work.
212    
213 agaffney 225 08 Jan 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
214     Partial rewrite of partitioning code in x86Template. No longer shells out to
215     parted to perform actions, now uses all pyparted calls. Code "works" in a
216     test, but still needs lots of TLC. Also modified tests/install.py to work
217     with x86Template and GLIClientConfiguration.
218    
219 agaffney 221 07 Jan 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
220     Initial move of partitioning code from ArchTemplate to x86Template.
221 agaffney 220
222 codeman 219 07 Jan 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
223 agaffney 224 Added grp_install and services to InstallProfile. forgot about the set_root_password
224 codeman 222
225     07 Jan 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
226 codeman 219 Fixed a few more edit_configs. fixed a chroot multicommand bug thanks to agaffney.
227     Test Install ran very well (skipping partitioning).
228    
229 codeman 213 05 Jan 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
230 codeman 215 My mid-day update. rewrote mount_local_partitions for order of mounting. fixed prepare_chroot
231 codeman 216 rewrote configure_fstab and install_bootloader for new partition format. fixed a few _edit_configs.
232     some may still have eluded me.
233 codeman 215
234     05 Jan 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
235 codeman 213 Overhauled the entire ArchTemplate and did a lot of other misc fixes in order to test it.
236     Just finished mount_local_partitions in GLIArchitectureTemplate
237    
238 agaffney 212 05 Jan 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
239     Added get_num_sectors() to GLIStorageDevice.
240    
241     04 Jan 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
242 agaffney 205 GLIStorageDevice now tracks partition boundaries in sectors instead of cylinders.
243 agaffney 208 Also now ignores <=100 sectors for free space. Removed remaining depends stuff
244     from GLIInstallProfile.
245 agaffney 205
246 agaffney 188 20 Dec 2004; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
247     GLIStorageDevice returns "unknown" instead of "" for get_type()
248    
249 agaffney 183 19 Dec 2004; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
250 agaffney 184 Added get_extended_partition() to GLIStorageDevice. Rewrote get_logicals() to
251     actually work. Commented out resizability checking code for speed.
252 agaffney 183
253 agaffney 174 17 Dec 2004; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
254     Switched to using dumpe2fs to determine free space left in ext2/3 filesystem in
255     GLIStorageDevice at the suggestion of plors
256    
257 agaffney 162 10 Dec 2004; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
258     Added a function to GLIUtility to pull a value from a make.conf-style config
259 agaffney 163 file. Minor type fix to GLIInstallProfile.py
260 agaffney 162
261 agaffney 160 09 Dec 2004; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
262 agaffney 163 Added code in GLIArchitectureTemplate.py to write netmounts into fstab. Separated
263     network mounts from partition data structure in GLIInstallProfile
264 agaffney 161
265 agaffney 147 27 Nov 2004; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
266     Changed the way GLIStorageDevice.py determines the amount a ext2/3 filesystem
267     can be resized.
268    
269 codeman 91 27 Oct 2004; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
270     Added some of the final functions to GLIInstallTemplate.
271     Yes this project is still active despite rare use of the Changelog!
272    
273 npmccallum 58 11 Jun 2004; Nathaniel McCallum <npmccallum@gentoo.org>
274     Added the GLIPartitionTools.py file. This is a temporary insertion of
275     partitioning tools that will eventually go into their own package.
276    
277 npmccallum 33 27 Mar 2004; Nathaniel McCallum <npmccallum@gentoo.org>
278     Added InstallProfileTODO.txt. Added GLIClientConfiguration.py (contains run-time
279     for the program). Added __init__(install_profile, client_configuration) to
280     GLI.InstallProfile. This sets install_profile and client_configuration once so as
281     to avoid constantly passing stuff every time we call a method.
282    
283 npmccallum 28 26 Mar 2004; Nathaniel McCallum <npmccallum@gentoo.org>
284    
285     Added another private method to GLI.InstallTemplate. _edit_config() modifies config
286     files without messing up all the other stuff in them. This will be used for making
287     changes to make.conf, rc.conf, /etc/conf.d/net, etc...
288    
289 npmccallum 27 25 Mar 2004; Nathaniel McCallum <npmccallum@gentoo.org>
290    
291     Added GLI.InstallTemplate framework. This is not yet functional. However, it does
292     have a few basic things. I added two private methods. One is _depends(). This
293     will be used for dependency checking (ie. unpacking a tarball requires that
294     partitioning has been done). The other is _exec_in_chroot(). This is the exact
295     same syntax as os.system(), however, instead of being run in the liveCD
296     environment, it runs in the chroot. This requires a bit of fork() magic, so I
297     isolated the code. Hope to work more this week to get this class formed...
298    
299 esammer 7 14 Feb 2004; Eric Sammer <esammer@gentoo.org>
300    
301     Added SAX parsing. Made GLI.InstallProfile a subclass of xml.sax.ContentHandler for
302     obvious reasons. Switched kernel_modules and users to be lists instead of tuples
303     to allow for easier modification (mutable, rather than immutable objects). Updated
304     existing pydoc and added more. Implemented body of GLI.InstallProfile.parse().
305     Cleaned file format of GLI.py a bit. Fixed all accessors to use self references.
306     Added initial unit test code.
307    
308 esammer 4 9 Feb 2004; Eric Sammer <esammer@gentoo.org>
309    
310     Added initial changelog. Setting up the basic structure of the CVS repository
311     for the project. Added the UML class diagram in docs. Added a skeletal GLI
312     python module. Added misc files such news, authors, etc.
