8     fixed the way set_timezone works.
9    
10 codeman 467 31 Mar 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
11     Fixed indent problem in GLICController
12    
13 agaffney 463 30 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
14     Check for disklabel type "loop" and use the device name without a minor.
15    
16 agaffney 453 29 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
17     Remove /tmp/compile_output.log and /var/log/install.log when install is
18 agaffney 456 complete. Added code to (hopefully) keep 2nd thread running after install.
19 agaffney 458 Patch from zahna for extra arguments to the kernel. Patch from zahna to add
20 agaffney 460 get_eth_info() function. Remove most of content in amd64ArchTemplate and
21 agaffney 461 make it inherit from x86Archtemplate. kernel_args -> bootloader_kernel_args
22 agaffney 453
23 agaffney 451 28 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
24 agaffney 452 Added 'append_log=True' to all spawn() calls using logfile=. Append to log
25     when unpacking tarball.
26 agaffney 451
27 codeman 443 28 Mar 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
28 codeman 446 rewrote filesystem_tools. looks like it works so ripping out all the old
29     filesystem_tools code.
30 codeman 443
31 codeman 427 26 Mar 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
32     Changed the print statements to logging in the partitioning BE code.
33     the logger may need to be imported to the x86archtemplate. unknown yet.
34 codeman 432 Added the finishing_cleanup function.
35 codeman 433 added a fix to the logger from BenUrban
36 codeman 427
37 codeman 422 25 Mar 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
38     changed InstallProfile to remove is_uri check on kernel, stage, and portage
39     URIs. The blank uri check has been commented out.
40 codeman 426 ripped out error checking of set_services. this is done by _add_to_runlevel.
41 codeman 422
42 agaffney 419 25 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
43     set_stage_tarball_uri() doesn't raise an exception on a blank string.
44    
45 agaffney 415 24 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
46     GRP-ish quickpkg code pulls PKGDIR and PORTAGE_TMPDIR from make.conf info in
47 agaffney 416 the install profile if available. Commented out spawn() debugging prints
48 agaffney 415
49 codeman 409 23 Mar 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
50     small changes to setup_network_post. moved adding to runlevel of net.x to
51     after the device gets symlinked. added domainname runlevel command.
52    
53 agaffney 401 23 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
54 agaffney 408 minor fix (hopefully) to livecd-kernel code. Removed call to mkvardb in
55 agaffney 412 livecd-kernel code as it's now done by catalyst. Switch _emerge() call to
56     spawn() call in livecd-kernel code to pass environment variables.
57 agaffney 414 livecd-kernel code pulls PKGDIR and PORTAGE_TMPDIR from make.conf info in
58     the install profile if available.
59 agaffney 402
60     23 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
61 agaffney 401 Added code to build_kernel() and emerge_kernel_sources() in ArchTemplate
62     to handle installing the livecd kernel into the new system.
63    
64 codeman 395 22 Mar 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
65     should emerge hotplug and coldplug before adding them to runlevel.
66    
67 codeman 390 21 Mar 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
68 codeman 395 took chroot out of grub_install command.
69    
70     21 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
71     Changed chroot wrapper code in spawn() to write the wrapper the python way
72     instead of the bash way to avoid quote conflicts. Added
73 agaffney 392 'logfile=self._compile_logfile' to a number of spawn() calls. Added new
74 agaffney 394 hash_password() function to GLIUtility. Remove command to 'rm /tmp/spawn.sh'
75     as it breaks the piping.
76 codeman 390
77 codeman 387 20 Mar 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
78     Added the amd64ArchitectureTemplate, mostly a copy of x86 without lilo.
79    
80 agaffney 385 20 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
81     Added _get_packages_to_emerge() to GLIArchitectureTemplate and calls in
82 agaffney 386 stage1() and stage2(). Added 'origminor' parameter to GLIStorageDevice and
83 agaffney 389 GLIInstallProfile.
84 agaffney 385
85 agaffney 379 19 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
86 agaffney 384 Fixed a couple bugs in add_netmount() in GLIInstallProfile. spawn() outputs
87     to the actual tty8 with display_on_tty8 flag. Compile output logfile moved
88     into /mnt/gentoo in prepare_chroot()
89 agaffney 379
90 agaffney 375 18 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
91     Add sigunmask.c contributed by d_m (on freenode) to counteract python's
92 agaffney 377 retarted behavior regarding threads and signals. Add code to convert MB/%/*
93     to start/end sectors
94 agaffney 375
95     17 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
96 agaffney 374 Add 2>&1 to cmd in spawn()
97    
98 agaffney 369 16 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
99     Modified GLIUtility.exitsuccess() to work with return value from
100 agaffney 371 commands.getstatusoutput instead of os.waitpid(). spawn() automatically
101     creates wrapper script for commands run inside chroot so multiple commands
102 agaffney 373 and redirection can be used. Change exitsuccess() back. Added 'chmod a+x'
103     for the generated script from spawn()
104 agaffney 369
105 codeman 361 16 Mar 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
106     Removed default values for stage tarball URI and portage tree URI from
107     InstallProfile. These should be set by the FEs. also added services step to
108     ArchTemplate and coldplug/hotplug runlevels to the genkernel step.
109     Possibly fixed CC DHCP bug with -n. (thx agaffney)
110    
111 codeman 359 14 Mar 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
112     Small fix for setting the default gateway. Also added feature to dialogfe.
113    
114 agaffney 357 7 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
115     Switched spawn() over to commands.getstatusoutput() instead of fork/waitpid
116    
117 codeman 345 1 Mar 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
118 codeman 346 Fixed a bunch of true -> True typos. lots of em
119 codeman 347 only write new resolv.conf if there are dns servers listed.
120 codeman 345
121 agaffney 343 1 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
122     Commented out 'display_on_tty8=True' in start_portmap()
123    
124 codeman 341 18 Feb 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
125     added progress bar to dialogfe and fix logger bug in ArchTemplate.
126    
127 agaffney 337 18 Feb 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
128 agaffney 339 Created GLISayWhat module. Renamed GLISayWhat to GLILocalization. Moved
129     lang parameter to __init__()
130 codeman 331
131     10 Feb 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
132     updates to TODO list.
133 esammer 4
134 agaffney 322 6 Feb 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>

136     'emerge -p blah'
137 agaffney 322
138 codeman 319 6 Feb 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
139 codeman 320 check for dhcp in the network stuff and emerge it if it is.
140     added quickpkg to TODO list
141 codeman 319
142 codeman 318 5 Feb 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
143     Changed the raising of 'warning' exceptions to a simple log of the error
144     so that the installer can continue.
145    
146 codeman 314 3 Feb 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
147     Some big changes. First, changed most output to display_on_tty8.
148     Second, added log lines to all templates. Some smaller fixes such as typos.
149     Also did some cleanups of old commented lines.
150    
151 agaffney 310 1 Feb 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
152 agaffney 312 Changed tty8 output to a fifo. Minor GLIStorageDevice fix thanks to BenUrban.
153 agaffney 313 Undo change with fix. Escaping fix in GLIStorageDevice.py
154 agaffney 310
155 codeman 306 31 Jan 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
156     more updates to TODO list. hopefully we'll soon start removing items instead
157     of adding them.
158    
159 agaffney 301 29 Jan 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
160     Changed the way GLIStorageDevice.get_max_sectors_for_resize() works
161    
162 codeman 293 27 Jan 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
163 codeman 295 updated TODO list. (again)
164 codeman 293
165 codeman 286 25 Jan 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
166     changed output of portmap start to display_on_tty8.

168 codeman 288 fixed custom kernel config (again)
169 codeman 286
170 codeman 281 22 Jan 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
171     changed default value of CC._enable_ssh to True because this is smart.
172 codeman 282 added code to allow custom kernel .config. may be unstable and break. sorry.
173 codeman 281
174 agaffney 278 21 Jan 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
175     partition() now waits until after it checks for partition flags before delete
176     the partitions :P
177    
178 agaffney 271 19 Jan 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
179 agaffney 272 Updated TODO. swapon failure it temporarily not an error. swapon is an error
180 agaffney 277 again. is_uri() check only performed on portage_tree_snapshot_uri if it isn't
181     blank.
182 agaffney 271
183 codeman 268 19 Jan 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
184     Various fixes related to the add_users function. Still not yet finished.
185 codeman 269 Added things to the TODO list. Lets start using that!
186 codeman 268
187 agaffney 264 18 Jan 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
188     Added code to x86Template to format newly created partitions. Also added
189 agaffney 265 some error checking code. GLIStorageDevice passes 'minor' with data to
190 agaffney 266 InstallProfile. Added partition() call back in ArchTemplate. Fixed NFS
191     mounting code.
192 agaffney 264
193 codeman 263 18 Jan 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
194     Took out unnecessary setting of random livecd root password. the cd already
195     sets it randomly.
196    
197 agaffney 255 15 Jan 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
198     Took out an unneeded step from CC's run()
199    
200 codeman 248 15 Jan 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
201     Attempt at detecting and adding windows partitions to lilo.
202    
203 codeman 235 14 Jan 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
204 codeman 237 Added lilo code and cleaned up lilo code. also do_partitioning renamed to
205     partition. fixed misc exit_status => exitstatus typo.
206 codeman 235
207 agaffney 230 11 Jan 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
208 agaffney 232 Added basic code for resizing filesystems with pyparted. Fixed code for
209     resizing ntfs and ext2/3.
210 agaffney 230
211 agaffney 228 10 Jan 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
212     Fixed partition() in x86Template so that it scans through logicals and deletes
213 agaffney 229 before deleting containing extended partition. Also clears partition table to
214     be safe before third pass.
215 agaffney 228
216 codeman 226 08 Jan 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
217     Added mount_network_shares. not able to test it from this computer.
218     will test when i get back to school.
219     also added start_portmap to the client_controller as an always-do.
220     agaffney says this is needed for NFS mounts to work.
221    
222 agaffney 225 08 Jan 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
223     Partial rewrite of partitioning code in x86Template. No longer shells out to
224     parted to perform actions, now uses all pyparted calls. Code "works" in a
225     test, but still needs lots of TLC. Also modified tests/install.py to work
226     with x86Template and GLIClientConfiguration.
227    
228 agaffney 221 07 Jan 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
229     Initial move of partitioning code from ArchTemplate to x86Template.
230 agaffney 220
231 codeman 219 07 Jan 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
232 agaffney 224 Added grp_install and services to InstallProfile. forgot about the set_root_password
233 codeman 222
234     07 Jan 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
235 codeman 219 Fixed a few more edit_configs. fixed a chroot multicommand bug thanks to agaffney.
236     Test Install ran very well (skipping partitioning).
237    
238 codeman 213 05 Jan 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
239 codeman 215 My mid-day update. rewrote mount_local_partitions for order of mounting. fixed prepare_chroot
240 codeman 216 rewrote configure_fstab and install_bootloader for new partition format. fixed a few _edit_configs.
241     some may still have eluded me.
242 codeman 215
243     05 Jan 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
244 codeman 213 Overhauled the entire ArchTemplate and did a lot of other misc fixes in order to test it.
245     Just finished mount_local_partitions in GLIArchitectureTemplate
246    
247 agaffney 212 05 Jan 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
248     Added get_num_sectors() to GLIStorageDevice.
249    
250     04 Jan 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
251 agaffney 205 GLIStorageDevice now tracks partition boundaries in sectors instead of cylinders.
252 agaffney 208 Also now ignores <=100 sectors for free space. Removed remaining depends stuff
253     from GLIInstallProfile.
254 agaffney 205
255 agaffney 188 20 Dec 2004; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
256     GLIStorageDevice returns "unknown" instead of "" for get_type()
257    
258 agaffney 183 19 Dec 2004; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
259 agaffney 184 Added get_extended_partition() to GLIStorageDevice. Rewrote get_logicals() to
260     actually work. Commented out resizability checking code for speed.
261 agaffney 183
262 agaffney 174 17 Dec 2004; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
263     Switched to using dumpe2fs to determine free space left in ext2/3 filesystem in
264     GLIStorageDevice at the suggestion of plors
265    
266 agaffney 162 10 Dec 2004; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
267     Added a function to GLIUtility to pull a value from a make.conf-style config
268 agaffney 163 file. Minor type fix to GLIInstallProfile.py
269 agaffney 162
270 agaffney 160 09 Dec 2004; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
271 agaffney 163 Added code in GLIArchitectureTemplate.py to write netmounts into fstab. Separated
272     network mounts from partition data structure in GLIInstallProfile
273 agaffney 161
274 agaffney 147 27 Nov 2004; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
275     Changed the way GLIStorageDevice.py determines the amount a ext2/3 filesystem
276     can be resized.
277    
278 codeman 91 27 Oct 2004; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
279     Added some of the final functions to GLIInstallTemplate.
280     Yes this project is still active despite rare use of the Changelog!
281    
282 npmccallum 58 11 Jun 2004; Nathaniel McCallum <npmccallum@gentoo.org>
283     Added the GLIPartitionTools.py file. This is a temporary insertion of
284     partitioning tools that will eventually go into their own package.
285    
286 npmccallum 33 27 Mar 2004; Nathaniel McCallum <npmccallum@gentoo.org>
287     Added InstallProfileTODO.txt. Added GLIClientConfiguration.py (contains run-time
288     for the program). Added __init__(install_profile, client_configuration) to
289     GLI.InstallProfile. This sets install_profile and client_configuration once so as
290     to avoid constantly passing stuff every time we call a method.
291    
292 npmccallum 28 26 Mar 2004; Nathaniel McCallum <npmccallum@gentoo.org>
293    
294     Added another private method to GLI.InstallTemplate. _edit_config() modifies config
295     files without messing up all the other stuff in them. This will be used for making
296     changes to make.conf, rc.conf, /etc/conf.d/net, etc...
297    
298 npmccallum 27 25 Mar 2004; Nathaniel McCallum <npmccallum@gentoo.org>
299    
300     Added GLI.InstallTemplate framework. This is not yet functional. However, it does
301     have a few basic things. I added two private methods. One is _depends(). This
302     will be used for dependency checking (ie. unpacking a tarball requires that
303     partitioning has been done). The other is _exec_in_chroot(). This is the exact
304     same syntax as os.system(), however, instead of being run in the liveCD
305     environment, it runs in the chroot. This requires a bit of fork() magic, so I
306     isolated the code. Hope to work more this week to get this class formed...
307    
308 esammer 7 14 Feb 2004; Eric Sammer <esammer@gentoo.org>
309    
310     Added SAX parsing. Made GLI.InstallProfile a subclass of xml.sax.ContentHandler for
311     obvious reasons. Switched kernel_modules and users to be lists instead of tuples
312     to allow for easier modification (mutable, rather than immutable objects). Updated
313     existing pydoc and added more. Implemented body of GLI.InstallProfile.parse().
314     Cleaned file format of GLI.py a bit. Fixed all accessors to use self references.
315     Added initial unit test code.
316    
317 esammer 4 9 Feb 2004; Eric Sammer <esammer@gentoo.org>
318    
319     Added initial changelog. Setting up the basic structure of the CVS repository
320     for the project. Added the UML class diagram in docs. Added a skeletal GLI
321     python module. Added misc files such news, authors, etc.
