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 507 Partitioning code now tracks start/end of extended for placing logicals. End
11     point of logical is now adjusted along with start.
12 agaffney 503
13 agaffney 497 11 Apr 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
14 agaffney 501 Finish overhaul of backend partitioning code. Fixed all bugs that stood in
15 agaffney 502 the way of partitioning from a blank disk. Add int() around access to minor
16     key in partition information due to new partition code leaving them as float.
17 agaffney 497
18 agaffney 494 10 Apr 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
19 agaffney 495 tidy_partitions() function in GLIStorageDevice. Tweaks to tidy code
20 agaffney 494
21 agaffney 492 9 Apr 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
22     Major GLIStorageDevice overhaul...all MB now instead of sectors.
23    
24     8 Apr 2005; Scott Myron <samyron@gentoo.org>
25 samyron 491 Added support for DHCP options and MAC addresses in the InstallProfile.
26    
27 agaffney 481 3 Apr 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
28 agaffney 484 Changed mountopts check to work for blank and whitespace. Pipe emerge through

30 agaffney 481
31 codeman 475 2 Apr 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
32 codeman 476 fixed the way set_timezone works. added hotplug/coldplug for livecd-kernel
33 codeman 479 added --emptytree to stage2. fixed ethx not being added to runlevel defalt.
34 codeman 475
35 codeman 467 31 Mar 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
36     Fixed indent problem in GLICController
37    
38 agaffney 463 30 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
39     Check for disklabel type "loop" and use the device name without a minor.
40    
41 agaffney 453 29 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
42     Remove /tmp/compile_output.log and /var/log/install.log when install is
43 agaffney 456 complete. Added code to (hopefully) keep 2nd thread running after install.
44 agaffney 458 Patch from zahna for extra arguments to the kernel. Patch from zahna to add
45 agaffney 460 get_eth_info() function. Remove most of content in amd64ArchTemplate and
46 agaffney 461 make it inherit from x86Archtemplate. kernel_args -> bootloader_kernel_args
47 agaffney 453
48 agaffney 451 28 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
49 agaffney 452 Added 'append_log=True' to all spawn() calls using logfile=. Append to log
50     when unpacking tarball.
51 agaffney 451
52 codeman 443 28 Mar 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
53 codeman 446 rewrote filesystem_tools. looks like it works so ripping out all the old
54     filesystem_tools code.
55 codeman 443
56 codeman 427 26 Mar 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
57     Changed the print statements to logging in the partitioning BE code.
58     the logger may need to be imported to the x86archtemplate. unknown yet.
59 codeman 432 Added the finishing_cleanup function.
60 codeman 433 added a fix to the logger from BenUrban
61 codeman 427
62 codeman 422 25 Mar 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
63     changed InstallProfile to remove is_uri check on kernel, stage, and portage
64     URIs. The blank uri check has been commented out.
65 codeman 426 ripped out error checking of set_services. this is done by _add_to_runlevel.
66 codeman 422
67 agaffney 419 25 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
68     set_stage_tarball_uri() doesn't raise an exception on a blank string.
69    
70 agaffney 415 24 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
71     GRP-ish quickpkg code pulls PKGDIR and PORTAGE_TMPDIR from make.conf info in
72 agaffney 416 the install profile if available. Commented out spawn() debugging prints
73 agaffney 415
74 codeman 409 23 Mar 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
75     small changes to setup_network_post. moved adding to runlevel of net.x to
76     after the device gets symlinked. added domainname runlevel command.
77    
78 agaffney 401 23 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
79 agaffney 408 minor fix (hopefully) to livecd-kernel code. Removed call to mkvardb in
80 agaffney 412 livecd-kernel code as it's now done by catalyst. Switch _emerge() call to
81     spawn() call in livecd-kernel code to pass environment variables.
82 agaffney 414 livecd-kernel code pulls PKGDIR and PORTAGE_TMPDIR from make.conf info in
83     the install profile if available.
84 agaffney 402
85     23 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
86 agaffney 401 Added code to build_kernel() and emerge_kernel_sources() in ArchTemplate
87     to handle installing the livecd kernel into the new system.
88    
89 codeman 395 22 Mar 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
90     should emerge hotplug and coldplug before adding them to runlevel.
91    
92 codeman 390 21 Mar 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
93 codeman 395 took chroot out of grub_install command.
94    
95     21 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
96     Changed chroot wrapper code in spawn() to write the wrapper the python way
97     instead of the bash way to avoid quote conflicts. Added
98 agaffney 392 'logfile=self._compile_logfile' to a number of spawn() calls. Added new
99 agaffney 394 hash_password() function to GLIUtility. Remove command to 'rm /tmp/spawn.sh'
100     as it breaks the piping.
101 codeman 390
102 codeman 387 20 Mar 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
103     Added the amd64ArchitectureTemplate, mostly a copy of x86 without lilo.
104    
105 agaffney 385 20 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
106     Added _get_packages_to_emerge() to GLIArchitectureTemplate and calls in
107 agaffney 386 stage1() and stage2(). Added 'origminor' parameter to GLIStorageDevice and
108 agaffney 389 GLIInstallProfile.
109 agaffney 385
110 agaffney 379 19 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
111 agaffney 384 Fixed a couple bugs in add_netmount() in GLIInstallProfile. spawn() outputs
112     to the actual tty8 with display_on_tty8 flag. Compile output logfile moved
113     into /mnt/gentoo in prepare_chroot()
114 agaffney 379
115 agaffney 375 18 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
116     Add sigunmask.c contributed by d_m (on freenode) to counteract python's
117 agaffney 377 retarted behavior regarding threads and signals. Add code to convert MB/%/*
118     to start/end sectors
119 agaffney 375
120     17 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
121 agaffney 374 Add 2>&1 to cmd in spawn()
122    
123 agaffney 369 16 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
124     Modified GLIUtility.exitsuccess() to work with return value from
125 agaffney 371 commands.getstatusoutput instead of os.waitpid(). spawn() automatically
126     creates wrapper script for commands run inside chroot so multiple commands
127 agaffney 373 and redirection can be used. Change exitsuccess() back. Added 'chmod a+x'
128     for the generated script from spawn()
129 agaffney 369
130 codeman 361 16 Mar 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
131     Removed default values for stage tarball URI and portage tree URI from
132     InstallProfile. These should be set by the FEs. also added services step to
133     ArchTemplate and coldplug/hotplug runlevels to the genkernel step.
134     Possibly fixed CC DHCP bug with -n. (thx agaffney)
135    
136 codeman 359 14 Mar 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
137     Small fix for setting the default gateway. Also added feature to dialogfe.
138    
139 agaffney 357 7 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
140     Switched spawn() over to commands.getstatusoutput() instead of fork/waitpid
141    
142 codeman 345 1 Mar 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
143 codeman 346 Fixed a bunch of true -> True typos. lots of em
144 codeman 347 only write new resolv.conf if there are dns servers listed.
145 codeman 345
146 agaffney 343 1 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
147     Commented out 'display_on_tty8=True' in start_portmap()
148    
149 codeman 341 18 Feb 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
150     added progress bar to dialogfe and fix logger bug in ArchTemplate.
151    
152 agaffney 337 18 Feb 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
153 agaffney 339 Created GLISayWhat module. Renamed GLISayWhat to GLILocalization. Moved
154     lang parameter to __init__()
155 codeman 331
156     10 Feb 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>

162 agaffney 322
163 codeman 319 6 Feb 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
164 codeman 320 check for dhcp in the network stuff and emerge it if it is.
165     added quickpkg to TODO list
166 codeman 319
167 codeman 318 5 Feb 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
168     Changed the raising of 'warning' exceptions to a simple log of the error
169     so that the installer can continue.
170    
171 codeman 314 3 Feb 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
172     Some big changes. First, changed most output to display_on_tty8.
173     Second, added log lines to all templates. Some smaller fixes such as typos.
174     Also did some cleanups of old commented lines.
175    
176 agaffney 310 1 Feb 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
177 agaffney 312 Changed tty8 output to a fifo. Minor GLIStorageDevice fix thanks to BenUrban.
178 agaffney 313 Undo change with fix. Escaping fix in GLIStorageDevice.py
179 agaffney 310
180 codeman 306 31 Jan 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
181     more updates to TODO list. hopefully we'll soon start removing items instead
182     of adding them.
183    
184 agaffney 301 29 Jan 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
185     Changed the way GLIStorageDevice.get_max_sectors_for_resize() works
186    
187 codeman 293 27 Jan 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
188 codeman 295 updated TODO list. (again)
189 codeman 293
190 codeman 286 25 Jan 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
191     changed output of portmap start to display_on_tty8.
192     fixed bootloader for udev and multiple kernels
193 codeman 288 fixed custom kernel config (again)
194 codeman 286
195 codeman 281 22 Jan 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
196     changed default value of CC._enable_ssh to True because this is smart.
197 codeman 282 added code to allow custom kernel .config. may be unstable and break. sorry.
198 codeman 281
199 agaffney 278 21 Jan 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
200     partition() now waits until after it checks for partition flags before delete
201     the partitions :P
202    
203 agaffney 271 19 Jan 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
204 agaffney 272 Updated TODO. swapon failure it temporarily not an error. swapon is an error
205 agaffney 277 again. is_uri() check only performed on portage_tree_snapshot_uri if it isn't
206     blank.
207 agaffney 271
208 codeman 268 19 Jan 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
209     Various fixes related to the add_users function. Still not yet finished.
210 codeman 269 Added things to the TODO list. Lets start using that!
211 codeman 268
212 agaffney 264 18 Jan 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
213     Added code to x86Template to format newly created partitions. Also added
214 agaffney 265 some error checking code. GLIStorageDevice passes 'minor' with data to
215 agaffney 266 InstallProfile. Added partition() call back in ArchTemplate. Fixed NFS
216     mounting code.
217 agaffney 264
218 codeman 263 18 Jan 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
219     Took out unnecessary setting of random livecd root password. the cd already
220     sets it randomly.
221    
222 agaffney 255 15 Jan 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
223     Took out an unneeded step from CC's run()
224    
225 codeman 248 15 Jan 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
226     Attempt at detecting and adding windows partitions to lilo.
227    
228 codeman 235 14 Jan 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
229 codeman 237 Added lilo code and cleaned up lilo code. also do_partitioning renamed to
230     partition. fixed misc exit_status => exitstatus typo.
231 codeman 235
232 agaffney 230 11 Jan 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
233 agaffney 232 Added basic code for resizing filesystems with pyparted. Fixed code for
234     resizing ntfs and ext2/3.
235 agaffney 230
236 agaffney 228 10 Jan 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
237     Fixed partition() in x86Template so that it scans through logicals and deletes
238 agaffney 229 before deleting containing extended partition. Also clears partition table to
239     be safe before third pass.
240 agaffney 228
241 codeman 226 08 Jan 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
242     Added mount_network_shares. not able to test it from this computer.
243     will test when i get back to school.
244     also added start_portmap to the client_controller as an always-do.
245     agaffney says this is needed for NFS mounts to work.
246    
247 agaffney 225 08 Jan 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
248     Partial rewrite of partitioning code in x86Template. No longer shells out to
249     parted to perform actions, now uses all pyparted calls. Code "works" in a
250     test, but still needs lots of TLC. Also modified tests/install.py to work
251     with x86Template and GLIClientConfiguration.
252    
253 agaffney 221 07 Jan 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
254     Initial move of partitioning code from ArchTemplate to x86Template.
255 agaffney 220
256 codeman 219 07 Jan 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
257 agaffney 224 Added grp_install and services to InstallProfile. forgot about the set_root_password
258 codeman 222
259     07 Jan 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
260 codeman 219 Fixed a few more edit_configs. fixed a chroot multicommand bug thanks to agaffney.
261     Test Install ran very well (skipping partitioning).
262    
263 codeman 213 05 Jan 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
264 codeman 215 My mid-day update. rewrote mount_local_partitions for order of mounting. fixed prepare_chroot
265 codeman 216 rewrote configure_fstab and install_bootloader for new partition format. fixed a few _edit_configs.
266     some may still have eluded me.
267 codeman 215
268     05 Jan 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
269 codeman 213 Overhauled the entire ArchTemplate and did a lot of other misc fixes in order to test it.
270     Just finished mount_local_partitions in GLIArchitectureTemplate
271    
272 agaffney 212 05 Jan 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
273     Added get_num_sectors() to GLIStorageDevice.
274    
275     04 Jan 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
276 agaffney 205 GLIStorageDevice now tracks partition boundaries in sectors instead of cylinders.
277 agaffney 208 Also now ignores <=100 sectors for free space. Removed remaining depends stuff
278     from GLIInstallProfile.
279 agaffney 205
280 agaffney 188 20 Dec 2004; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
281     GLIStorageDevice returns "unknown" instead of "" for get_type()
282    
283 agaffney 183 19 Dec 2004; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
284 agaffney 184 Added get_extended_partition() to GLIStorageDevice. Rewrote get_logicals() to
285     actually work. Commented out resizability checking code for speed.
286 agaffney 183
287 agaffney 174 17 Dec 2004; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
288     Switched to using dumpe2fs to determine free space left in ext2/3 filesystem in
289     GLIStorageDevice at the suggestion of plors
290    
291 agaffney 162 10 Dec 2004; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
292     Added a function to GLIUtility to pull a value from a make.conf-style config
293 agaffney 163 file. Minor type fix to GLIInstallProfile.py
294 agaffney 162
295 agaffney 160 09 Dec 2004; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
296 agaffney 163 Added code in GLIArchitectureTemplate.py to write netmounts into fstab. Separated
297     network mounts from partition data structure in GLIInstallProfile
298 agaffney 161
299 agaffney 147 27 Nov 2004; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
300     Changed the way GLIStorageDevice.py determines the amount a ext2/3 filesystem
301     can be resized.
302    
303 codeman 91 27 Oct 2004; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
304     Added some of the final functions to GLIInstallTemplate.
305     Yes this project is still active despite rare use of the Changelog!
306    
307 npmccallum 58 11 Jun 2004; Nathaniel McCallum <npmccallum@gentoo.org>
308     Added the GLIPartitionTools.py file. This is a temporary insertion of
309     partitioning tools that will eventually go into their own package.
310    
311 npmccallum 33 27 Mar 2004; Nathaniel McCallum <npmccallum@gentoo.org>
312     Added InstallProfileTODO.txt. Added GLIClientConfiguration.py (contains run-time
313     for the program). Added __init__(install_profile, client_configuration) to
314     GLI.InstallProfile. This sets install_profile and client_configuration once so as
315     to avoid constantly passing stuff every time we call a method.
316    
317 npmccallum 28 26 Mar 2004; Nathaniel McCallum <npmccallum@gentoo.org>
318    
319     Added another private method to GLI.InstallTemplate. _edit_config() modifies config
320     files without messing up all the other stuff in them. This will be used for making
321     changes to make.conf, rc.conf, /etc/conf.d/net, etc...
322    
323 npmccallum 27 25 Mar 2004; Nathaniel McCallum <npmccallum@gentoo.org>
324    
325     Added GLI.InstallTemplate framework. This is not yet functional. However, it does
326     have a few basic things. I added two private methods. One is _depends(). This
327     will be used for dependency checking (ie. unpacking a tarball requires that
328     partitioning has been done). The other is _exec_in_chroot(). This is the exact
329     same syntax as os.system(), however, instead of being run in the liveCD
330     environment, it runs in the chroot. This requires a bit of fork() magic, so I
331     isolated the code. Hope to work more this week to get this class formed...
332    
333 esammer 7 14 Feb 2004; Eric Sammer <esammer@gentoo.org>
334    
335     Added SAX parsing. Made GLI.InstallProfile a subclass of xml.sax.ContentHandler for
336     obvious reasons. Switched kernel_modules and users to be lists instead of tuples
337     to allow for easier modification (mutable, rather than immutable objects). Updated
338     existing pydoc and added more. Implemented body of GLI.InstallProfile.parse().
339     Cleaned file format of GLI.py a bit. Fixed all accessors to use self references.
340     Added initial unit test code.
341    
342 esammer 4 9 Feb 2004; Eric Sammer <esammer@gentoo.org>
343    
344     Added initial changelog. Setting up the basic structure of the CVS repository
345     for the project. Added the UML class diagram in docs. Added a skeletal GLI
346     python module. Added misc files such news, authors, etc.
