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

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

44 agaffney 451
45 codeman 443 28 Mar 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
46 codeman 446 rewrote filesystem_tools. looks like it works so ripping out all the old
47     filesystem_tools code.
48 codeman 443
49 codeman 427 26 Mar 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
50     Changed the print statements to logging in the partitioning BE code.
51     the logger may need to be imported to the x86archtemplate. unknown yet.
52 codeman 432 Added the finishing_cleanup function.
53 codeman 433 added a fix to the logger from BenUrban
54 codeman 427
55 codeman 422 25 Mar 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
56     changed InstallProfile to remove is_uri check on kernel, stage, and portage
57     URIs. The blank uri check has been commented out.
58 codeman 426 ripped out error checking of set_services. this is done by _add_to_runlevel.
59 codeman 422
60 agaffney 419 25 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
61     set_stage_tarball_uri() doesn't raise an exception on a blank string.
62    
63 agaffney 415 24 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
64     GRP-ish quickpkg code pulls PKGDIR and PORTAGE_TMPDIR from make.conf info in
65 agaffney 416 the install profile if available. Commented out spawn() debugging prints
66 agaffney 415
67 codeman 409 23 Mar 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
68     small changes to setup_network_post. moved adding to runlevel of net.x to
69     after the device gets symlinked. added domainname runlevel command.
70    
71 agaffney 401 23 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
72 agaffney 408 minor fix (hopefully) to livecd-kernel code. Removed call to mkvardb in
73 agaffney 412 livecd-kernel code as it's now done by catalyst. Switch _emerge() call to
74     spawn() call in livecd-kernel code to pass environment variables.
75 agaffney 414 livecd-kernel code pulls PKGDIR and PORTAGE_TMPDIR from make.conf info in
76     the install profile if available.
77 agaffney 402
78     23 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
79 agaffney 401 Added code to build_kernel() and emerge_kernel_sources() in ArchTemplate
80     to handle installing the livecd kernel into the new system.
81    
82 codeman 395 22 Mar 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
83     should emerge hotplug and coldplug before adding them to runlevel.
84    
85 codeman 390 21 Mar 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
86 codeman 395 took chroot out of grub_install command.
87    
88     21 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
89     Changed chroot wrapper code in spawn() to write the wrapper the python way
90     instead of the bash way to avoid quote conflicts. Added
91 agaffney 392 'logfile=self._compile_logfile' to a number of spawn() calls. Added new
92 agaffney 394 hash_password() function to GLIUtility. Remove command to 'rm /tmp/spawn.sh'
93     as it breaks the piping.
94 codeman 390
95 codeman 387 20 Mar 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
96     Added the amd64ArchitectureTemplate, mostly a copy of x86 without lilo.
97    
98 agaffney 385 20 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
99     Added _get_packages_to_emerge() to GLIArchitectureTemplate and calls in
100 agaffney 386 stage1() and stage2(). Added 'origminor' parameter to GLIStorageDevice and
101 agaffney 389 GLIInstallProfile.
102 agaffney 385
103 agaffney 379 19 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
104 agaffney 384 Fixed a couple bugs in add_netmount() in GLIInstallProfile. spawn() outputs
105     to the actual tty8 with display_on_tty8 flag. Compile output logfile moved
106     into /mnt/gentoo in prepare_chroot()
107 agaffney 379
108 agaffney 375 18 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
109     Add sigunmask.c contributed by d_m (on freenode) to counteract python's
110 agaffney 377 retarted behavior regarding threads and signals. Add code to convert MB/%/*
111     to start/end sectors
112 agaffney 375
113     17 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
114 agaffney 374 Add 2>&1 to cmd in spawn()
115    
116 agaffney 369 16 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
117     Modified GLIUtility.exitsuccess() to work with return value from
118 agaffney 371 commands.getstatusoutput instead of os.waitpid(). spawn() automatically
119     creates wrapper script for commands run inside chroot so multiple commands
120 agaffney 373 and redirection can be used. Change exitsuccess() back. Added 'chmod a+x'
121     for the generated script from spawn()
122 agaffney 369
123 codeman 361 16 Mar 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
124     Removed default values for stage tarball URI and portage tree URI from
125     InstallProfile. These should be set by the FEs. also added services step to
126     ArchTemplate and coldplug/hotplug runlevels to the genkernel step.
127     Possibly fixed CC DHCP bug with -n. (thx agaffney)
128    
129 codeman 359 14 Mar 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
130     Small fix for setting the default gateway. Also added feature to dialogfe.
131    
132 agaffney 357 7 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
133     Switched spawn() over to commands.getstatusoutput() instead of fork/waitpid
134    
135 codeman 345 1 Mar 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
136 codeman 346 Fixed a bunch of true -> True typos. lots of em
137 codeman 347 only write new resolv.conf if there are dns servers listed.
138 codeman 345
139 agaffney 343 1 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
140     Commented out 'display_on_tty8=True' in start_portmap()
141    
142 codeman 341 18 Feb 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
143     added progress bar to dialogfe and fix logger bug in ArchTemplate.
144    
145 agaffney 337 18 Feb 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
146 agaffney 339 Created GLISayWhat module. Renamed GLISayWhat to GLILocalization. Moved
147     lang parameter to __init__()
148 codeman 331
149     10 Feb 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
150     updates to TODO list.

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

167     Also did some cleanups of old commented lines.
168    
169 agaffney 310 1 Feb 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
170 agaffney 312 Changed tty8 output to a fifo. Minor GLIStorageDevice fix thanks to BenUrban.
171 agaffney 313 Undo change with fix. Escaping fix in GLIStorageDevice.py
172 agaffney 310
173 codeman 306 31 Jan 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
174     more updates to TODO list. hopefully we'll soon start removing items instead
175     of adding them.
176    
177 agaffney 301 29 Jan 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
178     Changed the way GLIStorageDevice.get_max_sectors_for_resize() works
179

181 codeman 295 updated TODO list. (again)
182 codeman 293

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