6 agaffney 337
7 agaffney 503 13 Apr 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
8     Moved 'end >= device_sectors' check out of loop to check for next partition's
9 agaffney 505 start point (thanks to Marco Djukic). Fix >4 primary partitions on non-x86.
10 agaffney 506 Partitioning code now tracks start/end of extended for placing logicals.
11 agaffney 503
12 agaffney 497 11 Apr 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
13 agaffney 501 Finish overhaul of backend partitioning code. Fixed all bugs that stood in
14 agaffney 502 the way of partitioning from a blank disk. Add int() around access to minor
15     key in partition information due to new partition code leaving them as float.
16 agaffney 497
17 agaffney 494 10 Apr 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
18 agaffney 495 tidy_partitions() function in GLIStorageDevice. Tweaks to tidy code
19 agaffney 494
20 agaffney 492 9 Apr 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
21     Major GLIStorageDevice overhaul...all MB now instead of sectors.

36    
37 agaffney 463 30 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
38     Check for disklabel type "loop" and use the device name without a minor.
39    
40 agaffney 453 29 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
41     Remove /tmp/compile_output.log and /var/log/install.log when install is
42 agaffney 456 complete. Added code to (hopefully) keep 2nd thread running after install.
43 agaffney 458 Patch from zahna for extra arguments to the kernel. Patch from zahna to add
44 agaffney 460 get_eth_info() function. Remove most of content in amd64ArchTemplate and
45 agaffney 461 make it inherit from x86Archtemplate. kernel_args -> bootloader_kernel_args
46 agaffney 453
47 agaffney 451 28 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
48 agaffney 452 Added 'append_log=True' to all spawn() calls using logfile=. Append to log
49     when unpacking tarball.
50 agaffney 451
51 codeman 443 28 Mar 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
52 codeman 446 rewrote filesystem_tools. looks like it works so ripping out all the old
53     filesystem_tools code.
54 codeman 443
55 codeman 427 26 Mar 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
56     Changed the print statements to logging in the partitioning BE code.
57     the logger may need to be imported to the x86archtemplate. unknown yet.
58 codeman 432 Added the finishing_cleanup function.
59 codeman 433 added a fix to the logger from BenUrban
60 codeman 427
61 codeman 422 25 Mar 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
62     changed InstallProfile to remove is_uri check on kernel, stage, and portage
63     URIs. The blank uri check has been commented out.
64 codeman 426 ripped out error checking of set_services. this is done by _add_to_runlevel.
65 codeman 422
66 agaffney 419 25 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
67     set_stage_tarball_uri() doesn't raise an exception on a blank string.
68    
69 agaffney 415 24 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
70     GRP-ish quickpkg code pulls PKGDIR and PORTAGE_TMPDIR from make.conf info in
71 agaffney 416 the install profile if available. Commented out spawn() debugging prints
72 agaffney 415
73 codeman 409 23 Mar 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
74     small changes to setup_network_post. moved adding to runlevel of net.x to
75     after the device gets symlinked. added domainname runlevel command.
76    
77 agaffney 401 23 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
78 agaffney 408 minor fix (hopefully) to livecd-kernel code. Removed call to mkvardb in
79 agaffney 412 livecd-kernel code as it's now done by catalyst. Switch _emerge() call to
80     spawn() call in livecd-kernel code to pass environment variables.
81 agaffney 414 livecd-kernel code pulls PKGDIR and PORTAGE_TMPDIR from make.conf info in
82     the install profile if available.
83 agaffney 402
84     23 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
85 agaffney 401 Added code to build_kernel() and emerge_kernel_sources() in ArchTemplate
86     to handle installing the livecd kernel into the new system.
87    
88 codeman 395 22 Mar 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
89     should emerge hotplug and coldplug before adding them to runlevel.
90    
91 codeman 390 21 Mar 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
92 codeman 395 took chroot out of grub_install command.
93    
94     21 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
95     Changed chroot wrapper code in spawn() to write the wrapper the python way
96     instead of the bash way to avoid quote conflicts. Added
97 agaffney 392 'logfile=self._compile_logfile' to a number of spawn() calls. Added new
98 agaffney 394 hash_password() function to GLIUtility. Remove command to 'rm /tmp/spawn.sh'
99     as it breaks the piping.
100 codeman 390
101 codeman 387 20 Mar 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
102     Added the amd64ArchitectureTemplate, mostly a copy of x86 without lilo.
103    
104 agaffney 385 20 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
105     Added _get_packages_to_emerge() to GLIArchitectureTemplate and calls in
106 agaffney 386 stage1() and stage2(). Added 'origminor' parameter to GLIStorageDevice and
107 agaffney 389 GLIInstallProfile.
108 agaffney 385
109 agaffney 379 19 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
110 agaffney 384 Fixed a couple bugs in add_netmount() in GLIInstallProfile. spawn() outputs
111     to the actual tty8 with display_on_tty8 flag. Compile output logfile moved
112     into /mnt/gentoo in prepare_chroot()
113 agaffney 379
114 agaffney 375 18 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
115     Add sigunmask.c contributed by d_m (on freenode) to counteract python's
116 agaffney 377 retarted behavior regarding threads and signals. Add code to convert MB/%/*
117     to start/end sectors
118 agaffney 375
119     17 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
120 agaffney 374 Add 2>&1 to cmd in spawn()
121    
122 agaffney 369 16 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
123     Modified GLIUtility.exitsuccess() to work with return value from
124 agaffney 371 commands.getstatusoutput instead of os.waitpid(). spawn() automatically
125     creates wrapper script for commands run inside chroot so multiple commands
126 agaffney 373 and redirection can be used. Change exitsuccess() back. Added 'chmod a+x'
127     for the generated script from spawn()
128 agaffney 369
129 codeman 361 16 Mar 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
130     Removed default values for stage tarball URI and portage tree URI from
131     InstallProfile. These should be set by the FEs. also added services step to
132     ArchTemplate and coldplug/hotplug runlevels to the genkernel step.
133     Possibly fixed CC DHCP bug with -n. (thx agaffney)
134    
135 codeman 359 14 Mar 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
136     Small fix for setting the default gateway. Also added feature to dialogfe.
137    
138 agaffney 357 7 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
139     Switched spawn() over to commands.getstatusoutput() instead of fork/waitpid
140    
141 codeman 345 1 Mar 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
142 codeman 346 Fixed a bunch of true -> True typos. lots of em
143 codeman 347 only write new resolv.conf if there are dns servers listed.
144 codeman 345
145 agaffney 343 1 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
146     Commented out 'display_on_tty8=True' in start_portmap()
147    
148 codeman 341 18 Feb 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
149     added progress bar to dialogfe and fix logger bug in ArchTemplate.
150    
151 agaffney 337 18 Feb 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
152 agaffney 339 Created GLISayWhat module. Renamed GLISayWhat to GLILocalization. Moved
153     lang parameter to __init__()
154 codeman 331
155     10 Feb 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>

161 agaffney 322
162 codeman 319 6 Feb 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
163 codeman 320 check for dhcp in the network stuff and emerge it if it is.
164     added quickpkg to TODO list
165 codeman 319
166 codeman 318 5 Feb 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
167     Changed the raising of 'warning' exceptions to a simple log of the error
168     so that the installer can continue.
169    
170 codeman 314 3 Feb 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
171     Some big changes. First, changed most output to display_on_tty8.
172     Second, added log lines to all templates. Some smaller fixes such as typos.
173     Also did some cleanups of old commented lines.
174    
175 agaffney 310 1 Feb 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
176 agaffney 312 Changed tty8 output to a fifo. Minor GLIStorageDevice fix thanks to BenUrban.
177 agaffney 313 Undo change with fix. Escaping fix in GLIStorageDevice.py
178 agaffney 310
179 codeman 306 31 Jan 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
180     more updates to TODO list. hopefully we'll soon start removing items instead
181     of adding them.
182    
183 agaffney 301 29 Jan 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
184     Changed the way GLIStorageDevice.get_max_sectors_for_resize() works
185    
186 codeman 293 27 Jan 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
187 codeman 295 updated TODO list. (again)
188 codeman 293
189 codeman 286 25 Jan 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
190     changed output of portmap start to display_on_tty8.

192 codeman 288 fixed custom kernel config (again)
193 codeman 286
194 codeman 281 22 Jan 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
195     changed default value of CC._enable_ssh to True because this is smart.
196 codeman 282 added code to allow custom kernel .config. may be unstable and break. sorry.
197 codeman 281
198 agaffney 278 21 Jan 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
199     partition() now waits until after it checks for partition flags before delete
200     the partitions :P
201    
202 agaffney 271 19 Jan 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
203 agaffney 272 Updated TODO. swapon failure it temporarily not an error. swapon is an error
204 agaffney 277 again. is_uri() check only performed on portage_tree_snapshot_uri if it isn't
205     blank.
206 agaffney 271
207 codeman 268 19 Jan 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
208     Various fixes related to the add_users function. Still not yet finished.
209 codeman 269 Added things to the TODO list. Lets start using that!
210 codeman 268
211 agaffney 264 18 Jan 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
212     Added code to x86Template to format newly created partitions. Also added
213 agaffney 265 some error checking code. GLIStorageDevice passes 'minor' with data to
214 agaffney 266 InstallProfile. Added partition() call back in ArchTemplate. Fixed NFS
215     mounting code.
216 agaffney 264
217 codeman 263 18 Jan 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
218     Took out unnecessary setting of random livecd root password. the cd already
219     sets it randomly.
220    
221 agaffney 255 15 Jan 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
222     Took out an unneeded step from CC's run()
223    
224 codeman 248 15 Jan 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
225     Attempt at detecting and adding windows partitions to lilo.
226    
227 codeman 235 14 Jan 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
228 codeman 237 Added lilo code and cleaned up lilo code. also do_partitioning renamed to
229     partition. fixed misc exit_status => exitstatus typo.
230 codeman 235
231 agaffney 230 11 Jan 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
232 agaffney 232 Added basic code for resizing filesystems with pyparted. Fixed code for
233     resizing ntfs and ext2/3.
234 agaffney 230
235 agaffney 228 10 Jan 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
236     Fixed partition() in x86Template so that it scans through logicals and deletes
237 agaffney 229 before deleting containing extended partition. Also clears partition table to
238     be safe before third pass.
239 agaffney 228
240 codeman 226 08 Jan 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
241     Added mount_network_shares. not able to test it from this computer.
242     will test when i get back to school.
243     also added start_portmap to the client_controller as an always-do.
244     agaffney says this is needed for NFS mounts to work.
245    
246 agaffney 225 08 Jan 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
247     Partial rewrite of partitioning code in x86Template. No longer shells out to
248     parted to perform actions, now uses all pyparted calls. Code "works" in a
249     test, but still needs lots of TLC. Also modified tests/install.py to work
250     with x86Template and GLIClientConfiguration.
251    
252 agaffney 221 07 Jan 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
253     Initial move of partitioning code from ArchTemplate to x86Template.
254 agaffney 220
255 codeman 219 07 Jan 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
256 agaffney 224 Added grp_install and services to InstallProfile. forgot about the set_root_password
257 codeman 222
258     07 Jan 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
259 codeman 219 Fixed a few more edit_configs. fixed a chroot multicommand bug thanks to agaffney.
260     Test Install ran very well (skipping partitioning).
261    
262 codeman 213 05 Jan 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
263 codeman 215 My mid-day update. rewrote mount_local_partitions for order of mounting. fixed prepare_chroot
264 codeman 216 rewrote configure_fstab and install_bootloader for new partition format. fixed a few _edit_configs.
265     some may still have eluded me.
266 codeman 215
267     05 Jan 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
268 codeman 213 Overhauled the entire ArchTemplate and did a lot of other misc fixes in order to test it.
269     Just finished mount_local_partitions in GLIArchitectureTemplate
270    
271 agaffney 212 05 Jan 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
272     Added get_num_sectors() to GLIStorageDevice.
273    
274     04 Jan 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
275 agaffney 205 GLIStorageDevice now tracks partition boundaries in sectors instead of cylinders.
276 agaffney 208 Also now ignores <=100 sectors for free space. Removed remaining depends stuff
277     from GLIInstallProfile.
278 agaffney 205
279 agaffney 188 20 Dec 2004; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
280     GLIStorageDevice returns "unknown" instead of "" for get_type()
281    
282 agaffney 183 19 Dec 2004; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
283 agaffney 184 Added get_extended_partition() to GLIStorageDevice. Rewrote get_logicals() to
284     actually work. Commented out resizability checking code for speed.
285 agaffney 183
286 agaffney 174 17 Dec 2004; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
287     Switched to using dumpe2fs to determine free space left in ext2/3 filesystem in
288     GLIStorageDevice at the suggestion of plors
289    
290 agaffney 162 10 Dec 2004; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
291     Added a function to GLIUtility to pull a value from a make.conf-style config
292 agaffney 163 file. Minor type fix to GLIInstallProfile.py
293 agaffney 162
294 agaffney 160 09 Dec 2004; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
295 agaffney 163 Added code in GLIArchitectureTemplate.py to write netmounts into fstab. Separated
296     network mounts from partition data structure in GLIInstallProfile
297 agaffney 161
298 agaffney 147 27 Nov 2004; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
299     Changed the way GLIStorageDevice.py determines the amount a ext2/3 filesystem
300     can be resized.
301    
302 codeman 91 27 Oct 2004; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
303     Added some of the final functions to GLIInstallTemplate.
304     Yes this project is still active despite rare use of the Changelog!
305    
306 npmccallum 58 11 Jun 2004; Nathaniel McCallum <npmccallum@gentoo.org>
307     Added the GLIPartitionTools.py file. This is a temporary insertion of
308     partitioning tools that will eventually go into their own package.
309    
310 npmccallum 33 27 Mar 2004; Nathaniel McCallum <npmccallum@gentoo.org>
311     Added InstallProfileTODO.txt. Added GLIClientConfiguration.py (contains run-time
312     for the program). Added __init__(install_profile, client_configuration) to
313     GLI.InstallProfile. This sets install_profile and client_configuration once so as
314     to avoid constantly passing stuff every time we call a method.
315    
316 npmccallum 28 26 Mar 2004; Nathaniel McCallum <npmccallum@gentoo.org>
317    
318     Added another private method to GLI.InstallTemplate. _edit_config() modifies config
319     files without messing up all the other stuff in them. This will be used for making
320     changes to make.conf, rc.conf, /etc/conf.d/net, etc...
321    
322 npmccallum 27 25 Mar 2004; Nathaniel McCallum <npmccallum@gentoo.org>
323    
324     Added GLI.InstallTemplate framework. This is not yet functional. However, it does
325     have a few basic things. I added two private methods. One is _depends(). This
326     will be used for dependency checking (ie. unpacking a tarball requires that
327     partitioning has been done). The other is _exec_in_chroot(). This is the exact
328     same syntax as os.system(), however, instead of being run in the liveCD
329     environment, it runs in the chroot. This requires a bit of fork() magic, so I
330     isolated the code. Hope to work more this week to get this class formed...
331    
332 esammer 7 14 Feb 2004; Eric Sammer <esammer@gentoo.org>
333    
334     Added SAX parsing. Made GLI.InstallProfile a subclass of xml.sax.ContentHandler for
335     obvious reasons. Switched kernel_modules and users to be lists instead of tuples
336     to allow for easier modification (mutable, rather than immutable objects). Updated
337     existing pydoc and added more. Implemented body of GLI.InstallProfile.parse().
338     Cleaned file format of GLI.py a bit. Fixed all accessors to use self references.
339     Added initial unit test code.
340    
341 esammer 4 9 Feb 2004; Eric Sammer <esammer@gentoo.org>
342    
343     Added initial changelog. Setting up the basic structure of the CVS repository
344     for the project. Added the UML class diagram in docs. Added a skeletal GLI
345     python module. Added misc files such news, authors, etc.
