7 agaffney 463 30 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
8     Check for disklabel type "loop" and use the device name without a minor.
9    
10 agaffney 453 29 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
11     Remove /tmp/compile_output.log and /var/log/install.log when install is
12 agaffney 456 complete. Added code to (hopefully) keep 2nd thread running after install.
13 agaffney 458 Patch from zahna for extra arguments to the kernel. Patch from zahna to add
14 agaffney 460 get_eth_info() function. Remove most of content in amd64ArchTemplate and
15 agaffney 461 make it inherit from x86Archtemplate. kernel_args -> bootloader_kernel_args
16 agaffney 453
17 agaffney 451 28 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
18 agaffney 452 Added 'append_log=True' to all spawn() calls using logfile=. Append to log
19     when unpacking tarball.
20 agaffney 451
21 codeman 443 28 Mar 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
22 codeman 446 rewrote filesystem_tools. looks like it works so ripping out all the old
23     filesystem_tools code.
24 codeman 443
25 codeman 427 26 Mar 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
26     Changed the print statements to logging in the partitioning BE code.
27     the logger may need to be imported to the x86archtemplate. unknown yet.
28 codeman 432 Added the finishing_cleanup function.
29 codeman 433 added a fix to the logger from BenUrban
30 codeman 427
31 codeman 422 25 Mar 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
32     changed InstallProfile to remove is_uri check on kernel, stage, and portage
33     URIs. The blank uri check has been commented out.
34 codeman 426 ripped out error checking of set_services. this is done by _add_to_runlevel.
35 codeman 422
36 agaffney 419 25 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
37     set_stage_tarball_uri() doesn't raise an exception on a blank string.
38    
39 agaffney 415 24 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
40     GRP-ish quickpkg code pulls PKGDIR and PORTAGE_TMPDIR from make.conf info in
41 agaffney 416 the install profile if available. Commented out spawn() debugging prints
42 agaffney 415
43 codeman 409 23 Mar 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
44     small changes to setup_network_post. moved adding to runlevel of net.x to
45     after the device gets symlinked. added domainname runlevel command.
46    
47 agaffney 401 23 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
48 agaffney 408 minor fix (hopefully) to livecd-kernel code. Removed call to mkvardb in
49 agaffney 412 livecd-kernel code as it's now done by catalyst. Switch _emerge() call to
50     spawn() call in livecd-kernel code to pass environment variables.
51 agaffney 414 livecd-kernel code pulls PKGDIR and PORTAGE_TMPDIR from make.conf info in
52     the install profile if available.
53 agaffney 402
54     23 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
55 agaffney 401 Added code to build_kernel() and emerge_kernel_sources() in ArchTemplate
56     to handle installing the livecd kernel into the new system.
57    
58 codeman 395 22 Mar 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
59     should emerge hotplug and coldplug before adding them to runlevel.
60    
61 codeman 390 21 Mar 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
62 codeman 395 took chroot out of grub_install command.
63    
64     21 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
65     Changed chroot wrapper code in spawn() to write the wrapper the python way
66     instead of the bash way to avoid quote conflicts. Added
67 agaffney 392 'logfile=self._compile_logfile' to a number of spawn() calls. Added new
68 agaffney 394 hash_password() function to GLIUtility. Remove command to 'rm /tmp/spawn.sh'
69     as it breaks the piping.
70 codeman 390
71 codeman 387 20 Mar 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
72     Added the amd64ArchitectureTemplate, mostly a copy of x86 without lilo.
73    
74 agaffney 385 20 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
75     Added _get_packages_to_emerge() to GLIArchitectureTemplate and calls in
76 agaffney 386 stage1() and stage2(). Added 'origminor' parameter to GLIStorageDevice and
77 agaffney 389 GLIInstallProfile.
78 agaffney 385
79 agaffney 379 19 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
80 agaffney 384 Fixed a couple bugs in add_netmount() in GLIInstallProfile. spawn() outputs
81     to the actual tty8 with display_on_tty8 flag. Compile output logfile moved
82     into /mnt/gentoo in prepare_chroot()
83 agaffney 379
84 agaffney 375 18 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
85     Add sigunmask.c contributed by d_m (on freenode) to counteract python's
86 agaffney 377 retarted behavior regarding threads and signals. Add code to convert MB/%/*
87     to start/end sectors
88 agaffney 375
89     17 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
90 agaffney 374 Add 2>&1 to cmd in spawn()
91    
92 agaffney 369 16 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
93     Modified GLIUtility.exitsuccess() to work with return value from
94 agaffney 371 commands.getstatusoutput instead of os.waitpid(). spawn() automatically
95     creates wrapper script for commands run inside chroot so multiple commands
96 agaffney 373 and redirection can be used. Change exitsuccess() back. Added 'chmod a+x'
97     for the generated script from spawn()
98 agaffney 369
99 codeman 361 16 Mar 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
100     Removed default values for stage tarball URI and portage tree URI from
101     InstallProfile. These should be set by the FEs. also added services step to
102     ArchTemplate and coldplug/hotplug runlevels to the genkernel step.
103     Possibly fixed CC DHCP bug with -n. (thx agaffney)
104    
105 codeman 359 14 Mar 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
106     Small fix for setting the default gateway. Also added feature to dialogfe.
107    
108 agaffney 357 7 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
109     Switched spawn() over to commands.getstatusoutput() instead of fork/waitpid
110    
111 codeman 345 1 Mar 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
112 codeman 346 Fixed a bunch of true -> True typos. lots of em
113 codeman 347 only write new resolv.conf if there are dns servers listed.
114 codeman 345
115 agaffney 343 1 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
116     Commented out 'display_on_tty8=True' in start_portmap()
117    
118 codeman 341 18 Feb 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
119     added progress bar to dialogfe and fix logger bug in ArchTemplate.
120    
121 agaffney 337 18 Feb 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
122 agaffney 339 Created GLISayWhat module. Renamed GLISayWhat to GLILocalization. Moved
123     lang parameter to __init__()
124 codeman 331
125     10 Feb 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>

131 agaffney 322
132 codeman 319 6 Feb 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
133 codeman 320 check for dhcp in the network stuff and emerge it if it is.
134     added quickpkg to TODO list
135 codeman 319
136 codeman 318 5 Feb 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
137     Changed the raising of 'warning' exceptions to a simple log of the error
138     so that the installer can continue.
139    
140 codeman 314 3 Feb 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
141     Some big changes. First, changed most output to display_on_tty8.

143     Also did some cleanups of old commented lines.
144    
145 agaffney 310 1 Feb 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>

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

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