23    
24 agaffney 453 29 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
25     Remove /tmp/compile_output.log and /var/log/install.log when install is
26 agaffney 456 complete. Added code to (hopefully) keep 2nd thread running after install.
27 agaffney 458 Patch from zahna for extra arguments to the kernel. Patch from zahna to add
28 agaffney 460 get_eth_info() function. Remove most of content in amd64ArchTemplate and
29 agaffney 461 make it inherit from x86Archtemplate. kernel_args -> bootloader_kernel_args
30 agaffney 453
31 agaffney 451 28 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
32 agaffney 452 Added 'append_log=True' to all spawn() calls using logfile=. Append to log

34 agaffney 451
35 codeman 443 28 Mar 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
36 codeman 446 rewrote filesystem_tools. looks like it works so ripping out all the old
37     filesystem_tools code.
38 codeman 443
39 codeman 427 26 Mar 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
40     Changed the print statements to logging in the partitioning BE code.
41     the logger may need to be imported to the x86archtemplate. unknown yet.

44 codeman 427
45 codeman 422 25 Mar 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
46     changed InstallProfile to remove is_uri check on kernel, stage, and portage
47     URIs. The blank uri check has been commented out.
48 codeman 426 ripped out error checking of set_services. this is done by _add_to_runlevel.
49 codeman 422
50 agaffney 419 25 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
51     set_stage_tarball_uri() doesn't raise an exception on a blank string.
52    
53 agaffney 415 24 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
54     GRP-ish quickpkg code pulls PKGDIR and PORTAGE_TMPDIR from make.conf info in

56 agaffney 415
57 codeman 409 23 Mar 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
58     small changes to setup_network_post. moved adding to runlevel of net.x to

61 agaffney 401 23 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
62 agaffney 408 minor fix (hopefully) to livecd-kernel code. Removed call to mkvardb in
63 agaffney 412 livecd-kernel code as it's now done by catalyst. Switch _emerge() call to
64     spawn() call in livecd-kernel code to pass environment variables.
65 agaffney 414 livecd-kernel code pulls PKGDIR and PORTAGE_TMPDIR from make.conf info in
66     the install profile if available.
67 agaffney 402
68     23 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
69 agaffney 401 Added code to build_kernel() and emerge_kernel_sources() in ArchTemplate
70     to handle installing the livecd kernel into the new system.
71    
72 codeman 395 22 Mar 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
73     should emerge hotplug and coldplug before adding them to runlevel.
74    
75 codeman 390 21 Mar 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
76 codeman 395 took chroot out of grub_install command.
77    
78     21 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
79     Changed chroot wrapper code in spawn() to write the wrapper the python way
80     instead of the bash way to avoid quote conflicts. Added
81 agaffney 392 'logfile=self._compile_logfile' to a number of spawn() calls. Added new
82 agaffney 394 hash_password() function to GLIUtility. Remove command to 'rm /tmp/spawn.sh'
83     as it breaks the piping.
84 codeman 390
85 codeman 387 20 Mar 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
86     Added the amd64ArchitectureTemplate, mostly a copy of x86 without lilo.
87    
88 agaffney 385 20 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
89     Added _get_packages_to_emerge() to GLIArchitectureTemplate and calls in
90 agaffney 386 stage1() and stage2(). Added 'origminor' parameter to GLIStorageDevice and
91 agaffney 389 GLIInstallProfile.
92 agaffney 385
93 agaffney 379 19 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
94 agaffney 384 Fixed a couple bugs in add_netmount() in GLIInstallProfile. spawn() outputs
95     to the actual tty8 with display_on_tty8 flag. Compile output logfile moved
96     into /mnt/gentoo in prepare_chroot()
97 agaffney 379
98 agaffney 375 18 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
99     Add sigunmask.c contributed by d_m (on freenode) to counteract python's
100 agaffney 377 retarted behavior regarding threads and signals. Add code to convert MB/%/*
101     to start/end sectors
102 agaffney 375
103     17 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
104 agaffney 374 Add 2>&1 to cmd in spawn()
105    
106 agaffney 369 16 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
107     Modified GLIUtility.exitsuccess() to work with return value from
108 agaffney 371 commands.getstatusoutput instead of os.waitpid(). spawn() automatically
109     creates wrapper script for commands run inside chroot so multiple commands
110 agaffney 373 and redirection can be used. Change exitsuccess() back. Added 'chmod a+x'
111     for the generated script from spawn()
112 agaffney 369
113 codeman 361 16 Mar 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
114     Removed default values for stage tarball URI and portage tree URI from
115     InstallProfile. These should be set by the FEs. also added services step to
116     ArchTemplate and coldplug/hotplug runlevels to the genkernel step.
117     Possibly fixed CC DHCP bug with -n. (thx agaffney)
118    
119 codeman 359 14 Mar 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
120     Small fix for setting the default gateway. Also added feature to dialogfe.
121    
122 agaffney 357 7 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
123     Switched spawn() over to commands.getstatusoutput() instead of fork/waitpid
124    
125 codeman 345 1 Mar 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
126 codeman 346 Fixed a bunch of true -> True typos. lots of em
127 codeman 347 only write new resolv.conf if there are dns servers listed.
128 codeman 345
129 agaffney 343 1 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
130     Commented out 'display_on_tty8=True' in start_portmap()
131    
132 codeman 341 18 Feb 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
133     added progress bar to dialogfe and fix logger bug in ArchTemplate.
134    
135 agaffney 337 18 Feb 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
136 agaffney 339 Created GLISayWhat module. Renamed GLISayWhat to GLILocalization. Moved
137     lang parameter to __init__()
138 codeman 331
139     10 Feb 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
140     updates to TODO list.
141 esammer 4
142 agaffney 322 6 Feb 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>

144     'emerge -p blah'
145 agaffney 322
146 codeman 319 6 Feb 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
147 codeman 320 check for dhcp in the network stuff and emerge it if it is.
148     added quickpkg to TODO list
149 codeman 319
150 codeman 318 5 Feb 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
151     Changed the raising of 'warning' exceptions to a simple log of the error
152     so that the installer can continue.
153    
154 codeman 314 3 Feb 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
155     Some big changes. First, changed most output to display_on_tty8.
156     Second, added log lines to all templates. Some smaller fixes such as typos.
157     Also did some cleanups of old commented lines.
158    
159 agaffney 310 1 Feb 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
160 agaffney 312 Changed tty8 output to a fifo. Minor GLIStorageDevice fix thanks to BenUrban.
161 agaffney 313 Undo change with fix. Escaping fix in GLIStorageDevice.py
162 agaffney 310
163 codeman 306 31 Jan 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
164     more updates to TODO list. hopefully we'll soon start removing items instead
165     of adding them.
166    
167 agaffney 301 29 Jan 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
168     Changed the way GLIStorageDevice.get_max_sectors_for_resize() works
169    
170 codeman 293 27 Jan 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
171 codeman 295 updated TODO list. (again)
172 codeman 293
173 codeman 286 25 Jan 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
174     changed output of portmap start to display_on_tty8.

176 codeman 288 fixed custom kernel config (again)
177 codeman 286
178 codeman 281 22 Jan 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
179     changed default value of CC._enable_ssh to True because this is smart.
180 codeman 282 added code to allow custom kernel .config. may be unstable and break. sorry.
181 codeman 281
182 agaffney 278 21 Jan 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
183     partition() now waits until after it checks for partition flags before delete
184     the partitions :P
185    
186 agaffney 271 19 Jan 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
187 agaffney 272 Updated TODO. swapon failure it temporarily not an error. swapon is an error
188 agaffney 277 again. is_uri() check only performed on portage_tree_snapshot_uri if it isn't
189     blank.
190 agaffney 271
191 codeman 268 19 Jan 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
192     Various fixes related to the add_users function. Still not yet finished.
193 codeman 269 Added things to the TODO list. Lets start using that!
194 codeman 268
195 agaffney 264 18 Jan 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
196     Added code to x86Template to format newly created partitions. Also added
197 agaffney 265 some error checking code. GLIStorageDevice passes 'minor' with data to
198 agaffney 266 InstallProfile. Added partition() call back in ArchTemplate. Fixed NFS
199     mounting code.
200 agaffney 264
201 codeman 263 18 Jan 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
202     Took out unnecessary setting of random livecd root password. the cd already
203     sets it randomly.
204    
205 agaffney 255 15 Jan 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
206     Took out an unneeded step from CC's run()
207    
208 codeman 248 15 Jan 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
209     Attempt at detecting and adding windows partitions to lilo.
210    
211 codeman 235 14 Jan 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
212 codeman 237 Added lilo code and cleaned up lilo code. also do_partitioning renamed to
213     partition. fixed misc exit_status => exitstatus typo.
214 codeman 235
215 agaffney 230 11 Jan 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
216 agaffney 232 Added basic code for resizing filesystems with pyparted. Fixed code for
217     resizing ntfs and ext2/3.
218 agaffney 230
219 agaffney 228 10 Jan 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
220     Fixed partition() in x86Template so that it scans through logicals and deletes
221 agaffney 229 before deleting containing extended partition. Also clears partition table to
222     be safe before third pass.
223 agaffney 228
224 codeman 226 08 Jan 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
225     Added mount_network_shares. not able to test it from this computer.
226     will test when i get back to school.
227     also added start_portmap to the client_controller as an always-do.
228     agaffney says this is needed for NFS mounts to work.
229    
230 agaffney 225 08 Jan 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
231     Partial rewrite of partitioning code in x86Template. No longer shells out to
232     parted to perform actions, now uses all pyparted calls. Code "works" in a
233     test, but still needs lots of TLC. Also modified tests/install.py to work
234     with x86Template and GLIClientConfiguration.
235    
236 agaffney 221 07 Jan 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
237     Initial move of partitioning code from ArchTemplate to x86Template.
238 agaffney 220
239 codeman 219 07 Jan 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
240 agaffney 224 Added grp_install and services to InstallProfile. forgot about the set_root_password
241 codeman 222
242     07 Jan 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
243 codeman 219 Fixed a few more edit_configs. fixed a chroot multicommand bug thanks to agaffney.
244     Test Install ran very well (skipping partitioning).
245    
246 codeman 213 05 Jan 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
247 codeman 215 My mid-day update. rewrote mount_local_partitions for order of mounting. fixed prepare_chroot
248 codeman 216 rewrote configure_fstab and install_bootloader for new partition format. fixed a few _edit_configs.
249     some may still have eluded me.
250 codeman 215
251     05 Jan 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
252 codeman 213 Overhauled the entire ArchTemplate and did a lot of other misc fixes in order to test it.
253     Just finished mount_local_partitions in GLIArchitectureTemplate
254    
255 agaffney 212 05 Jan 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
256     Added get_num_sectors() to GLIStorageDevice.
257    
258     04 Jan 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
259 agaffney 205 GLIStorageDevice now tracks partition boundaries in sectors instead of cylinders.
260 agaffney 208 Also now ignores <=100 sectors for free space. Removed remaining depends stuff
261     from GLIInstallProfile.
262 agaffney 205
263 agaffney 188 20 Dec 2004; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
264     GLIStorageDevice returns "unknown" instead of "" for get_type()
265    
266 agaffney 183 19 Dec 2004; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
267 agaffney 184 Added get_extended_partition() to GLIStorageDevice. Rewrote get_logicals() to
268     actually work. Commented out resizability checking code for speed.
269 agaffney 183
270 agaffney 174 17 Dec 2004; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
271     Switched to using dumpe2fs to determine free space left in ext2/3 filesystem in
272     GLIStorageDevice at the suggestion of plors
273    
274 agaffney 162 10 Dec 2004; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
275     Added a function to GLIUtility to pull a value from a make.conf-style config
276 agaffney 163 file. Minor type fix to GLIInstallProfile.py
277 agaffney 162
278 agaffney 160 09 Dec 2004; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
279 agaffney 163 Added code in GLIArchitectureTemplate.py to write netmounts into fstab. Separated
280     network mounts from partition data structure in GLIInstallProfile
281 agaffney 161
282 agaffney 147 27 Nov 2004; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
283     Changed the way GLIStorageDevice.py determines the amount a ext2/3 filesystem
284     can be resized.
285    
286 codeman 91 27 Oct 2004; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
287     Added some of the final functions to GLIInstallTemplate.
288     Yes this project is still active despite rare use of the Changelog!
289    
290 npmccallum 58 11 Jun 2004; Nathaniel McCallum <npmccallum@gentoo.org>
291     Added the GLIPartitionTools.py file. This is a temporary insertion of
292     partitioning tools that will eventually go into their own package.
293    
294 npmccallum 33 27 Mar 2004; Nathaniel McCallum <npmccallum@gentoo.org>
295     Added InstallProfileTODO.txt. Added GLIClientConfiguration.py (contains run-time
296     for the program). Added __init__(install_profile, client_configuration) to
297     GLI.InstallProfile. This sets install_profile and client_configuration once so as
298     to avoid constantly passing stuff every time we call a method.
299    
300 npmccallum 28 26 Mar 2004; Nathaniel McCallum <npmccallum@gentoo.org>
301    
302     Added another private method to GLI.InstallTemplate. _edit_config() modifies config
303     files without messing up all the other stuff in them. This will be used for making
304     changes to make.conf, rc.conf, /etc/conf.d/net, etc...
305    
306 npmccallum 27 25 Mar 2004; Nathaniel McCallum <npmccallum@gentoo.org>
307    
308     Added GLI.InstallTemplate framework. This is not yet functional. However, it does
309     have a few basic things. I added two private methods. One is _depends(). This
310     will be used for dependency checking (ie. unpacking a tarball requires that
311     partitioning has been done). The other is _exec_in_chroot(). This is the exact
312     same syntax as os.system(), however, instead of being run in the liveCD
313     environment, it runs in the chroot. This requires a bit of fork() magic, so I
314     isolated the code. Hope to work more this week to get this class formed...
315    
316 esammer 7 14 Feb 2004; Eric Sammer <esammer@gentoo.org>
317    
318     Added SAX parsing. Made GLI.InstallProfile a subclass of xml.sax.ContentHandler for
319     obvious reasons. Switched kernel_modules and users to be lists instead of tuples
320     to allow for easier modification (mutable, rather than immutable objects). Updated
321     existing pydoc and added more. Implemented body of GLI.InstallProfile.parse().
322     Cleaned file format of GLI.py a bit. Fixed all accessors to use self references.
323     Added initial unit test code.
324    
325 esammer 4 9 Feb 2004; Eric Sammer <esammer@gentoo.org>
326    
327     Added initial changelog. Setting up the basic structure of the CVS repository
328     for the project. Added the UML class diagram in docs. Added a skeletal GLI
329     python module. Added misc files such news, authors, etc.
