16 agaffney 481
17 codeman 475 2 Apr 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
18 codeman 476 fixed the way set_timezone works. added hotplug/coldplug for livecd-kernel
19 codeman 479 added --emptytree to stage2. fixed ethx not being added to runlevel defalt.
20 codeman 475
21 codeman 467 31 Mar 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
22     Fixed indent problem in GLICController
23    
24 agaffney 463 30 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
25     Check for disklabel type "loop" and use the device name without a minor.
26    
27 agaffney 453 29 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
28     Remove /tmp/compile_output.log and /var/log/install.log when install is
29 agaffney 456 complete. Added code to (hopefully) keep 2nd thread running after install.
30 agaffney 458 Patch from zahna for extra arguments to the kernel. Patch from zahna to add
31 agaffney 460 get_eth_info() function. Remove most of content in amd64ArchTemplate and
32 agaffney 461 make it inherit from x86Archtemplate. kernel_args -> bootloader_kernel_args
33 agaffney 453
34 agaffney 451 28 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
35 agaffney 452 Added 'append_log=True' to all spawn() calls using logfile=. Append to log

37 agaffney 451
38 codeman 443 28 Mar 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
39 codeman 446 rewrote filesystem_tools. looks like it works so ripping out all the old
40     filesystem_tools code.
41 codeman 443
42 codeman 427 26 Mar 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
43     Changed the print statements to logging in the partitioning BE code.
44     the logger may need to be imported to the x86archtemplate. unknown yet.
45 codeman 432 Added the finishing_cleanup function.
46 codeman 433 added a fix to the logger from BenUrban
47 codeman 427
48 codeman 422 25 Mar 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
49     changed InstallProfile to remove is_uri check on kernel, stage, and portage
50     URIs. The blank uri check has been commented out.
51 codeman 426 ripped out error checking of set_services. this is done by _add_to_runlevel.
52 codeman 422
53 agaffney 419 25 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
54     set_stage_tarball_uri() doesn't raise an exception on a blank string.
55    
56 agaffney 415 24 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
57     GRP-ish quickpkg code pulls PKGDIR and PORTAGE_TMPDIR from make.conf info in
58 agaffney 416 the install profile if available. Commented out spawn() debugging prints
59 agaffney 415
60 codeman 409 23 Mar 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
61     small changes to setup_network_post. moved adding to runlevel of net.x to

63    
64 agaffney 401 23 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
65 agaffney 408 minor fix (hopefully) to livecd-kernel code. Removed call to mkvardb in
66 agaffney 412 livecd-kernel code as it's now done by catalyst. Switch _emerge() call to
67     spawn() call in livecd-kernel code to pass environment variables.
68 agaffney 414 livecd-kernel code pulls PKGDIR and PORTAGE_TMPDIR from make.conf info in
69     the install profile if available.
70 agaffney 402
71     23 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
72 agaffney 401 Added code to build_kernel() and emerge_kernel_sources() in ArchTemplate
73     to handle installing the livecd kernel into the new system.
74    
75 codeman 395 22 Mar 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
76     should emerge hotplug and coldplug before adding them to runlevel.
77    
78 codeman 390 21 Mar 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
79 codeman 395 took chroot out of grub_install command.
80    
81     21 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
82     Changed chroot wrapper code in spawn() to write the wrapper the python way
83     instead of the bash way to avoid quote conflicts. Added
84 agaffney 392 'logfile=self._compile_logfile' to a number of spawn() calls. Added new
85 agaffney 394 hash_password() function to GLIUtility. Remove command to 'rm /tmp/spawn.sh'
86     as it breaks the piping.
87 codeman 390
88 codeman 387 20 Mar 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
89     Added the amd64ArchitectureTemplate, mostly a copy of x86 without lilo.
90    
91 agaffney 385 20 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
92     Added _get_packages_to_emerge() to GLIArchitectureTemplate and calls in
93 agaffney 386 stage1() and stage2(). Added 'origminor' parameter to GLIStorageDevice and
94 agaffney 389 GLIInstallProfile.
95 agaffney 385
96 agaffney 379 19 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
97 agaffney 384 Fixed a couple bugs in add_netmount() in GLIInstallProfile. spawn() outputs
98     to the actual tty8 with display_on_tty8 flag. Compile output logfile moved
99     into /mnt/gentoo in prepare_chroot()
100 agaffney 379
101 agaffney 375 18 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
102     Add sigunmask.c contributed by d_m (on freenode) to counteract python's
103 agaffney 377 retarted behavior regarding threads and signals. Add code to convert MB/%/*
104     to start/end sectors
105 agaffney 375
106     17 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
107 agaffney 374 Add 2>&1 to cmd in spawn()
108    
109 agaffney 369 16 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
110     Modified GLIUtility.exitsuccess() to work with return value from
111 agaffney 371 commands.getstatusoutput instead of os.waitpid(). spawn() automatically
112     creates wrapper script for commands run inside chroot so multiple commands
113 agaffney 373 and redirection can be used. Change exitsuccess() back. Added 'chmod a+x'
114     for the generated script from spawn()
115 agaffney 369
116 codeman 361 16 Mar 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
117     Removed default values for stage tarball URI and portage tree URI from
118     InstallProfile. These should be set by the FEs. also added services step to
119     ArchTemplate and coldplug/hotplug runlevels to the genkernel step.
120     Possibly fixed CC DHCP bug with -n. (thx agaffney)
121    
122 codeman 359 14 Mar 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
123     Small fix for setting the default gateway. Also added feature to dialogfe.
124    
125 agaffney 357 7 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
126     Switched spawn() over to commands.getstatusoutput() instead of fork/waitpid
127    
128 codeman 345 1 Mar 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
129 codeman 346 Fixed a bunch of true -> True typos. lots of em
130 codeman 347 only write new resolv.conf if there are dns servers listed.
131 codeman 345
132 agaffney 343 1 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
133     Commented out 'display_on_tty8=True' in start_portmap()
134    
135 codeman 341 18 Feb 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
136     added progress bar to dialogfe and fix logger bug in ArchTemplate.
137    
138 agaffney 337 18 Feb 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
139 agaffney 339 Created GLISayWhat module. Renamed GLISayWhat to GLILocalization. Moved
140     lang parameter to __init__()
141 codeman 331
142     10 Feb 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
143     updates to TODO list.
144 esammer 4
145 agaffney 322 6 Feb 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
146 agaffney 324 Initial code for quickpkg GRP support. Fix loop to grab packages from
147     'emerge -p blah'
148 agaffney 322
149 codeman 319 6 Feb 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
150 codeman 320 check for dhcp in the network stuff and emerge it if it is.
151     added quickpkg to TODO list
152 codeman 319
153 codeman 318 5 Feb 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
154     Changed the raising of 'warning' exceptions to a simple log of the error
155     so that the installer can continue.
156    
157 codeman 314 3 Feb 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
158     Some big changes. First, changed most output to display_on_tty8.
159     Second, added log lines to all templates. Some smaller fixes such as typos.
160     Also did some cleanups of old commented lines.
161    
162 agaffney 310 1 Feb 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
163 agaffney 312 Changed tty8 output to a fifo. Minor GLIStorageDevice fix thanks to BenUrban.
164 agaffney 313 Undo change with fix. Escaping fix in GLIStorageDevice.py
165 agaffney 310
166 codeman 306 31 Jan 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
167     more updates to TODO list. hopefully we'll soon start removing items instead
168     of adding them.
169    
170 agaffney 301 29 Jan 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
171     Changed the way GLIStorageDevice.get_max_sectors_for_resize() works
172    
173 codeman 293 27 Jan 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
174 codeman 295 updated TODO list. (again)
175 codeman 293
176 codeman 286 25 Jan 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
177     changed output of portmap start to display_on_tty8.

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