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

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

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

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

154 agaffney 322
155 codeman 319 6 Feb 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
156 codeman 320 check for dhcp in the network stuff and emerge it if it is.
157     added quickpkg to TODO list
158 codeman 319
159 codeman 318 5 Feb 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
160     Changed the raising of 'warning' exceptions to a simple log of the error
161     so that the installer can continue.
162    
163 codeman 314 3 Feb 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
164     Some big changes. First, changed most output to display_on_tty8.

167    
168 agaffney 310 1 Feb 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>

170 agaffney 313 Undo change with fix. Escaping fix in GLIStorageDevice.py
171 agaffney 310
172 codeman 306 31 Jan 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
173     more updates to TODO list. hopefully we'll soon start removing items instead
174     of adding them.
175    
176 agaffney 301 29 Jan 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
177     Changed the way GLIStorageDevice.get_max_sectors_for_resize() works
178    
179 codeman 293 27 Jan 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
180 codeman 295 updated TODO list. (again)
181 codeman 293

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