9 agaffney 494
10 agaffney 492 9 Apr 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
11     Major GLIStorageDevice overhaul...all MB now instead of sectors.

26    
27 agaffney 463 30 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
28     Check for disklabel type "loop" and use the device name without a minor.
29    
30 agaffney 453 29 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
31     Remove /tmp/compile_output.log and /var/log/install.log when install is
32 agaffney 456 complete. Added code to (hopefully) keep 2nd thread running after install.
33 agaffney 458 Patch from zahna for extra arguments to the kernel. Patch from zahna to add
34 agaffney 460 get_eth_info() function. Remove most of content in amd64ArchTemplate and
35 agaffney 461 make it inherit from x86Archtemplate. kernel_args -> bootloader_kernel_args
36 agaffney 453
37 agaffney 451 28 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
38 agaffney 452 Added 'append_log=True' to all spawn() calls using logfile=. Append to log

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

66    
67 agaffney 401 23 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
68 agaffney 408 minor fix (hopefully) to livecd-kernel code. Removed call to mkvardb in
69 agaffney 412 livecd-kernel code as it's now done by catalyst. Switch _emerge() call to
70     spawn() call in livecd-kernel code to pass environment variables.
71 agaffney 414 livecd-kernel code pulls PKGDIR and PORTAGE_TMPDIR from make.conf info in
72     the install profile if available.
73 agaffney 402
74     23 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
75 agaffney 401 Added code to build_kernel() and emerge_kernel_sources() in ArchTemplate
76     to handle installing the livecd kernel into the new system.
77    
78 codeman 395 22 Mar 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
79     should emerge hotplug and coldplug before adding them to runlevel.
80    
81 codeman 390 21 Mar 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
82 codeman 395 took chroot out of grub_install command.
83    
84     21 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
85     Changed chroot wrapper code in spawn() to write the wrapper the python way
86     instead of the bash way to avoid quote conflicts. Added
87 agaffney 392 'logfile=self._compile_logfile' to a number of spawn() calls. Added new
88 agaffney 394 hash_password() function to GLIUtility. Remove command to 'rm /tmp/spawn.sh'
89     as it breaks the piping.
90 codeman 390
91 codeman 387 20 Mar 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
92     Added the amd64ArchitectureTemplate, mostly a copy of x86 without lilo.
93    
94 agaffney 385 20 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
95     Added _get_packages_to_emerge() to GLIArchitectureTemplate and calls in
96 agaffney 386 stage1() and stage2(). Added 'origminor' parameter to GLIStorageDevice and
97 agaffney 389 GLIInstallProfile.
98 agaffney 385
99 agaffney 379 19 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
100 agaffney 384 Fixed a couple bugs in add_netmount() in GLIInstallProfile. spawn() outputs
101     to the actual tty8 with display_on_tty8 flag. Compile output logfile moved
102     into /mnt/gentoo in prepare_chroot()
103 agaffney 379
104 agaffney 375 18 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
105     Add sigunmask.c contributed by d_m (on freenode) to counteract python's
106 agaffney 377 retarted behavior regarding threads and signals. Add code to convert MB/%/*
107     to start/end sectors
108 agaffney 375
109     17 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
110 agaffney 374 Add 2>&1 to cmd in spawn()
111    
112 agaffney 369 16 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
113     Modified GLIUtility.exitsuccess() to work with return value from
114 agaffney 371 commands.getstatusoutput instead of os.waitpid(). spawn() automatically
115     creates wrapper script for commands run inside chroot so multiple commands
116 agaffney 373 and redirection can be used. Change exitsuccess() back. Added 'chmod a+x'
117     for the generated script from spawn()
118 agaffney 369
119 codeman 361 16 Mar 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
120     Removed default values for stage tarball URI and portage tree URI from
121     InstallProfile. These should be set by the FEs. also added services step to
122     ArchTemplate and coldplug/hotplug runlevels to the genkernel step.
123     Possibly fixed CC DHCP bug with -n. (thx agaffney)
124    
125 codeman 359 14 Mar 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
126     Small fix for setting the default gateway. Also added feature to dialogfe.
127    
128 agaffney 357 7 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
129     Switched spawn() over to commands.getstatusoutput() instead of fork/waitpid
130    
131 codeman 345 1 Mar 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
132 codeman 346 Fixed a bunch of true -> True typos. lots of em
133 codeman 347 only write new resolv.conf if there are dns servers listed.
134 codeman 345
135 agaffney 343 1 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
136     Commented out 'display_on_tty8=True' in start_portmap()
137    
138 codeman 341 18 Feb 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
139     added progress bar to dialogfe and fix logger bug in ArchTemplate.
140    
141 agaffney 337 18 Feb 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
142 agaffney 339 Created GLISayWhat module. Renamed GLISayWhat to GLILocalization. Moved
143     lang parameter to __init__()
144 codeman 331
145     10 Feb 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
146     updates to TODO list.
147 esammer 4
148 agaffney 322 6 Feb 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>

150     'emerge -p blah'
151 agaffney 322
152 codeman 319 6 Feb 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
153 codeman 320 check for dhcp in the network stuff and emerge it if it is.
154     added quickpkg to TODO list
155 codeman 319
156 codeman 318 5 Feb 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
157     Changed the raising of 'warning' exceptions to a simple log of the error
158     so that the installer can continue.
159    
160 codeman 314 3 Feb 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
161     Some big changes. First, changed most output to display_on_tty8.
162     Second, added log lines to all templates. Some smaller fixes such as typos.
163     Also did some cleanups of old commented lines.
164    
165 agaffney 310 1 Feb 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
166 agaffney 312 Changed tty8 output to a fifo. Minor GLIStorageDevice fix thanks to BenUrban.
167 agaffney 313 Undo change with fix. Escaping fix in GLIStorageDevice.py
168 agaffney 310
169 codeman 306 31 Jan 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
170     more updates to TODO list. hopefully we'll soon start removing items instead
171     of adding them.
172    
173 agaffney 301 29 Jan 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
174     Changed the way GLIStorageDevice.get_max_sectors_for_resize() works
175    
176 codeman 293 27 Jan 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
177 codeman 295 updated TODO list. (again)
178 codeman 293
179 codeman 286 25 Jan 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
180     changed output of portmap start to display_on_tty8.
181     fixed bootloader for udev and multiple kernels
182 codeman 288 fixed custom kernel config (again)
183 codeman 286
184 codeman 281 22 Jan 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
185     changed default value of CC._enable_ssh to True because this is smart.
186 codeman 282 added code to allow custom kernel .config. may be unstable and break. sorry.
187 codeman 281
188 agaffney 278 21 Jan 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
189     partition() now waits until after it checks for partition flags before delete
190     the partitions :P
191    
192 agaffney 271 19 Jan 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
193 agaffney 272 Updated TODO. swapon failure it temporarily not an error. swapon is an error
194 agaffney 277 again. is_uri() check only performed on portage_tree_snapshot_uri if it isn't
195     blank.
196 agaffney 271
197 codeman 268 19 Jan 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
198     Various fixes related to the add_users function. Still not yet finished.
199 codeman 269 Added things to the TODO list. Lets start using that!
200 codeman 268
201 agaffney 264 18 Jan 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
202     Added code to x86Template to format newly created partitions. Also added
203 agaffney 265 some error checking code. GLIStorageDevice passes 'minor' with data to
204 agaffney 266 InstallProfile. Added partition() call back in ArchTemplate. Fixed NFS
205     mounting code.
206 agaffney 264
207 codeman 263 18 Jan 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
208     Took out unnecessary setting of random livecd root password. the cd already
209     sets it randomly.
210    
211 agaffney 255 15 Jan 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
212     Took out an unneeded step from CC's run()
213    
214 codeman 248 15 Jan 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
215     Attempt at detecting and adding windows partitions to lilo.
216    
217 codeman 235 14 Jan 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
218 codeman 237 Added lilo code and cleaned up lilo code. also do_partitioning renamed to
219     partition. fixed misc exit_status => exitstatus typo.
220 codeman 235
221 agaffney 230 11 Jan 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
222 agaffney 232 Added basic code for resizing filesystems with pyparted. Fixed code for
223     resizing ntfs and ext2/3.
224 agaffney 230
225 agaffney 228 10 Jan 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
226     Fixed partition() in x86Template so that it scans through logicals and deletes
227 agaffney 229 before deleting containing extended partition. Also clears partition table to
228     be safe before third pass.
229 agaffney 228
230 codeman 226 08 Jan 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
231     Added mount_network_shares. not able to test it from this computer.
232     will test when i get back to school.
233     also added start_portmap to the client_controller as an always-do.
234     agaffney says this is needed for NFS mounts to work.
235    
236 agaffney 225 08 Jan 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
237     Partial rewrite of partitioning code in x86Template. No longer shells out to
238     parted to perform actions, now uses all pyparted calls. Code "works" in a
239     test, but still needs lots of TLC. Also modified tests/install.py to work
240     with x86Template and GLIClientConfiguration.
241    
242 agaffney 221 07 Jan 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
243     Initial move of partitioning code from ArchTemplate to x86Template.
244 agaffney 220
245 codeman 219 07 Jan 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
246 agaffney 224 Added grp_install and services to InstallProfile. forgot about the set_root_password
247 codeman 222
248     07 Jan 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
249 codeman 219 Fixed a few more edit_configs. fixed a chroot multicommand bug thanks to agaffney.
250     Test Install ran very well (skipping partitioning).
251    
252 codeman 213 05 Jan 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
253 codeman 215 My mid-day update. rewrote mount_local_partitions for order of mounting. fixed prepare_chroot
254 codeman 216 rewrote configure_fstab and install_bootloader for new partition format. fixed a few _edit_configs.
255     some may still have eluded me.
256 codeman 215
257     05 Jan 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
258 codeman 213 Overhauled the entire ArchTemplate and did a lot of other misc fixes in order to test it.
259     Just finished mount_local_partitions in GLIArchitectureTemplate
260    
261 agaffney 212 05 Jan 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
262     Added get_num_sectors() to GLIStorageDevice.
263    
264     04 Jan 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
265 agaffney 205 GLIStorageDevice now tracks partition boundaries in sectors instead of cylinders.
266 agaffney 208 Also now ignores <=100 sectors for free space. Removed remaining depends stuff
267     from GLIInstallProfile.
268 agaffney 205
269 agaffney 188 20 Dec 2004; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
270     GLIStorageDevice returns "unknown" instead of "" for get_type()
271    
272 agaffney 183 19 Dec 2004; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
273 agaffney 184 Added get_extended_partition() to GLIStorageDevice. Rewrote get_logicals() to
274     actually work. Commented out resizability checking code for speed.
275 agaffney 183
276 agaffney 174 17 Dec 2004; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
277     Switched to using dumpe2fs to determine free space left in ext2/3 filesystem in
278     GLIStorageDevice at the suggestion of plors
279    
280 agaffney 162 10 Dec 2004; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
281     Added a function to GLIUtility to pull a value from a make.conf-style config
282 agaffney 163 file. Minor type fix to GLIInstallProfile.py
283 agaffney 162
284 agaffney 160 09 Dec 2004; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
285 agaffney 163 Added code in GLIArchitectureTemplate.py to write netmounts into fstab. Separated
286     network mounts from partition data structure in GLIInstallProfile
287 agaffney 161
288 agaffney 147 27 Nov 2004; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
289     Changed the way GLIStorageDevice.py determines the amount a ext2/3 filesystem
290     can be resized.
291    
292 codeman 91 27 Oct 2004; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
293     Added some of the final functions to GLIInstallTemplate.
294     Yes this project is still active despite rare use of the Changelog!
295    
296 npmccallum 58 11 Jun 2004; Nathaniel McCallum <npmccallum@gentoo.org>
297     Added the GLIPartitionTools.py file. This is a temporary insertion of
298     partitioning tools that will eventually go into their own package.
299    
300 npmccallum 33 27 Mar 2004; Nathaniel McCallum <npmccallum@gentoo.org>
301     Added InstallProfileTODO.txt. Added GLIClientConfiguration.py (contains run-time
302     for the program). Added __init__(install_profile, client_configuration) to
303     GLI.InstallProfile. This sets install_profile and client_configuration once so as
304     to avoid constantly passing stuff every time we call a method.
305    
306 npmccallum 28 26 Mar 2004; Nathaniel McCallum <npmccallum@gentoo.org>
307    
308     Added another private method to GLI.InstallTemplate. _edit_config() modifies config
309     files without messing up all the other stuff in them. This will be used for making
310     changes to make.conf, rc.conf, /etc/conf.d/net, etc...
311    
312 npmccallum 27 25 Mar 2004; Nathaniel McCallum <npmccallum@gentoo.org>
313    
314     Added GLI.InstallTemplate framework. This is not yet functional. However, it does
315     have a few basic things. I added two private methods. One is _depends(). This
316     will be used for dependency checking (ie. unpacking a tarball requires that
317     partitioning has been done). The other is _exec_in_chroot(). This is the exact
318     same syntax as os.system(), however, instead of being run in the liveCD
319     environment, it runs in the chroot. This requires a bit of fork() magic, so I
320     isolated the code. Hope to work more this week to get this class formed...
321    
322 esammer 7 14 Feb 2004; Eric Sammer <esammer@gentoo.org>
323    
324     Added SAX parsing. Made GLI.InstallProfile a subclass of xml.sax.ContentHandler for
325     obvious reasons. Switched kernel_modules and users to be lists instead of tuples
326     to allow for easier modification (mutable, rather than immutable objects). Updated
327     existing pydoc and added more. Implemented body of GLI.InstallProfile.parse().
328     Cleaned file format of GLI.py a bit. Fixed all accessors to use self references.
329     Added initial unit test code.
330    
331 esammer 4 9 Feb 2004; Eric Sammer <esammer@gentoo.org>
332    
333     Added initial changelog. Setting up the basic structure of the CVS repository
334     for the project. Added the UML class diagram in docs. Added a skeletal GLI
335     python module. Added misc files such news, authors, etc.
