8     Use blackace's one-liner to add comments for all function for use with
9     pythondoc.
10    
11 agaffney 503 13 Apr 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
12     Moved 'end >= device_sectors' check out of loop to check for next partition's
13 agaffney 505 start point (thanks to Marco Djukic). Fix >4 primary partitions on non-x86.
14 agaffney 507 Partitioning code now tracks start/end of extended for placing logicals. End
15     point of logical is now adjusted along with start.
16 agaffney 503
17 agaffney 497 11 Apr 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
18 agaffney 501 Finish overhaul of backend partitioning code. Fixed all bugs that stood in
19 agaffney 502 the way of partitioning from a blank disk. Add int() around access to minor
20     key in partition information due to new partition code leaving them as float.
21 agaffney 497
22 agaffney 494 10 Apr 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
23 agaffney 495 tidy_partitions() function in GLIStorageDevice. Tweaks to tidy code
24 agaffney 494
25 agaffney 492 9 Apr 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
26     Major GLIStorageDevice overhaul...all MB now instead of sectors.
27    
28     8 Apr 2005; Scott Myron <samyron@gentoo.org>
29 samyron 491 Added support for DHCP options and MAC addresses in the InstallProfile.
30    
31 agaffney 481 3 Apr 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
32 agaffney 484 Changed mountopts check to work for blank and whitespace. Pipe emerge through

34 agaffney 481
35 codeman 475 2 Apr 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
36 codeman 476 fixed the way set_timezone works. added hotplug/coldplug for livecd-kernel
37 codeman 479 added --emptytree to stage2. fixed ethx not being added to runlevel defalt.
38 codeman 475
39 codeman 467 31 Mar 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
40     Fixed indent problem in GLICController
41    
42 agaffney 463 30 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
43     Check for disklabel type "loop" and use the device name without a minor.
44    
45 agaffney 453 29 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
46     Remove /tmp/compile_output.log and /var/log/install.log when install is
47 agaffney 456 complete. Added code to (hopefully) keep 2nd thread running after install.
48 agaffney 458 Patch from zahna for extra arguments to the kernel. Patch from zahna to add
49 agaffney 460 get_eth_info() function. Remove most of content in amd64ArchTemplate and
50 agaffney 461 make it inherit from x86Archtemplate. kernel_args -> bootloader_kernel_args
51 agaffney 453
52 agaffney 451 28 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
53 agaffney 452 Added 'append_log=True' to all spawn() calls using logfile=. Append to log
54     when unpacking tarball.
55 agaffney 451
56 codeman 443 28 Mar 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
57 codeman 446 rewrote filesystem_tools. looks like it works so ripping out all the old
58     filesystem_tools code.
59 codeman 443
60 codeman 427 26 Mar 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
61     Changed the print statements to logging in the partitioning BE code.
62     the logger may need to be imported to the x86archtemplate. unknown yet.
63 codeman 432 Added the finishing_cleanup function.
64 codeman 433 added a fix to the logger from BenUrban
65 codeman 427
66 codeman 422 25 Mar 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
67     changed InstallProfile to remove is_uri check on kernel, stage, and portage
68     URIs. The blank uri check has been commented out.
69 codeman 426 ripped out error checking of set_services. this is done by _add_to_runlevel.
70 codeman 422
71 agaffney 419 25 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
72     set_stage_tarball_uri() doesn't raise an exception on a blank string.
73    
74 agaffney 415 24 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
75     GRP-ish quickpkg code pulls PKGDIR and PORTAGE_TMPDIR from make.conf info in
76 agaffney 416 the install profile if available. Commented out spawn() debugging prints
77 agaffney 415
78 codeman 409 23 Mar 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
79     small changes to setup_network_post. moved adding to runlevel of net.x to
80     after the device gets symlinked. added domainname runlevel command.
81    
82 agaffney 401 23 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
83 agaffney 408 minor fix (hopefully) to livecd-kernel code. Removed call to mkvardb in
84 agaffney 412 livecd-kernel code as it's now done by catalyst. Switch _emerge() call to
85     spawn() call in livecd-kernel code to pass environment variables.
86 agaffney 414 livecd-kernel code pulls PKGDIR and PORTAGE_TMPDIR from make.conf info in
87     the install profile if available.
88 agaffney 402
89     23 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
90 agaffney 401 Added code to build_kernel() and emerge_kernel_sources() in ArchTemplate
91     to handle installing the livecd kernel into the new system.
92    
93 codeman 395 22 Mar 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
94     should emerge hotplug and coldplug before adding them to runlevel.
95    
96 codeman 390 21 Mar 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
97 codeman 395 took chroot out of grub_install command.
98    
99     21 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
100     Changed chroot wrapper code in spawn() to write the wrapper the python way
101     instead of the bash way to avoid quote conflicts. Added
102 agaffney 392 'logfile=self._compile_logfile' to a number of spawn() calls. Added new
103 agaffney 394 hash_password() function to GLIUtility. Remove command to 'rm /tmp/spawn.sh'
104     as it breaks the piping.
105 codeman 390
106 codeman 387 20 Mar 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
107     Added the amd64ArchitectureTemplate, mostly a copy of x86 without lilo.
108    
109 agaffney 385 20 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
110     Added _get_packages_to_emerge() to GLIArchitectureTemplate and calls in
111 agaffney 386 stage1() and stage2(). Added 'origminor' parameter to GLIStorageDevice and
112 agaffney 389 GLIInstallProfile.
113 agaffney 385
114 agaffney 379 19 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
115 agaffney 384 Fixed a couple bugs in add_netmount() in GLIInstallProfile. spawn() outputs
116     to the actual tty8 with display_on_tty8 flag. Compile output logfile moved
117     into /mnt/gentoo in prepare_chroot()
118 agaffney 379
119 agaffney 375 18 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
120     Add sigunmask.c contributed by d_m (on freenode) to counteract python's
121 agaffney 377 retarted behavior regarding threads and signals. Add code to convert MB/%/*
122     to start/end sectors
123 agaffney 375
124     17 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
125 agaffney 374 Add 2>&1 to cmd in spawn()
126    
127 agaffney 369 16 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
128     Modified GLIUtility.exitsuccess() to work with return value from
129 agaffney 371 commands.getstatusoutput instead of os.waitpid(). spawn() automatically
130     creates wrapper script for commands run inside chroot so multiple commands
131 agaffney 373 and redirection can be used. Change exitsuccess() back. Added 'chmod a+x'
132     for the generated script from spawn()
133 agaffney 369
134 codeman 361 16 Mar 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
135     Removed default values for stage tarball URI and portage tree URI from
136     InstallProfile. These should be set by the FEs. also added services step to
137     ArchTemplate and coldplug/hotplug runlevels to the genkernel step.
138     Possibly fixed CC DHCP bug with -n. (thx agaffney)
139    
140 codeman 359 14 Mar 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
141     Small fix for setting the default gateway. Also added feature to dialogfe.
142    
143 agaffney 357 7 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
144     Switched spawn() over to commands.getstatusoutput() instead of fork/waitpid
145    
146 codeman 345 1 Mar 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
147 codeman 346 Fixed a bunch of true -> True typos. lots of em
148 codeman 347 only write new resolv.conf if there are dns servers listed.
149 codeman 345
150 agaffney 343 1 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
151     Commented out 'display_on_tty8=True' in start_portmap()
152    
153 codeman 341 18 Feb 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
154     added progress bar to dialogfe and fix logger bug in ArchTemplate.
155    
156 agaffney 337 18 Feb 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
157 agaffney 339 Created GLISayWhat module. Renamed GLISayWhat to GLILocalization. Moved
158     lang parameter to __init__()
159 codeman 331
160     10 Feb 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>

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

197 codeman 288 fixed custom kernel config (again)
198 codeman 286
199 codeman 281 22 Jan 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
200     changed default value of CC._enable_ssh to True because this is smart.
201 codeman 282 added code to allow custom kernel .config. may be unstable and break. sorry.
202 codeman 281
203 agaffney 278 21 Jan 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
204     partition() now waits until after it checks for partition flags before delete
205     the partitions :P
206    
207 agaffney 271 19 Jan 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
208 agaffney 272 Updated TODO. swapon failure it temporarily not an error. swapon is an error
209 agaffney 277 again. is_uri() check only performed on portage_tree_snapshot_uri if it isn't
210     blank.
211 agaffney 271
212 codeman 268 19 Jan 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
213     Various fixes related to the add_users function. Still not yet finished.
214 codeman 269 Added things to the TODO list. Lets start using that!
215 codeman 268
216 agaffney 264 18 Jan 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
217     Added code to x86Template to format newly created partitions. Also added
218 agaffney 265 some error checking code. GLIStorageDevice passes 'minor' with data to
219 agaffney 266 InstallProfile. Added partition() call back in ArchTemplate. Fixed NFS
220     mounting code.
221 agaffney 264
222 codeman 263 18 Jan 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
223     Took out unnecessary setting of random livecd root password. the cd already
224     sets it randomly.
225    
226 agaffney 255 15 Jan 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
227     Took out an unneeded step from CC's run()
228    
229 codeman 248 15 Jan 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
230     Attempt at detecting and adding windows partitions to lilo.
231    
232 codeman 235 14 Jan 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
233 codeman 237 Added lilo code and cleaned up lilo code. also do_partitioning renamed to
234     partition. fixed misc exit_status => exitstatus typo.
235 codeman 235
236 agaffney 230 11 Jan 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
237 agaffney 232 Added basic code for resizing filesystems with pyparted. Fixed code for
238     resizing ntfs and ext2/3.
239 agaffney 230
240 agaffney 228 10 Jan 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
241     Fixed partition() in x86Template so that it scans through logicals and deletes
242 agaffney 229 before deleting containing extended partition. Also clears partition table to
243     be safe before third pass.
244 agaffney 228
245 codeman 226 08 Jan 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
246     Added mount_network_shares. not able to test it from this computer.
247     will test when i get back to school.
248     also added start_portmap to the client_controller as an always-do.
249     agaffney says this is needed for NFS mounts to work.
250    
251 agaffney 225 08 Jan 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
252     Partial rewrite of partitioning code in x86Template. No longer shells out to
253     parted to perform actions, now uses all pyparted calls. Code "works" in a
254     test, but still needs lots of TLC. Also modified tests/install.py to work
255     with x86Template and GLIClientConfiguration.
256    
257 agaffney 221 07 Jan 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
258     Initial move of partitioning code from ArchTemplate to x86Template.
259 agaffney 220
260 codeman 219 07 Jan 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
261 agaffney 224 Added grp_install and services to InstallProfile. forgot about the set_root_password
262 codeman 222
263     07 Jan 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
264 codeman 219 Fixed a few more edit_configs. fixed a chroot multicommand bug thanks to agaffney.
265     Test Install ran very well (skipping partitioning).
266    
267 codeman 213 05 Jan 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
268 codeman 215 My mid-day update. rewrote mount_local_partitions for order of mounting. fixed prepare_chroot
269 codeman 216 rewrote configure_fstab and install_bootloader for new partition format. fixed a few _edit_configs.
270     some may still have eluded me.
271 codeman 215
272     05 Jan 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
273 codeman 213 Overhauled the entire ArchTemplate and did a lot of other misc fixes in order to test it.
274     Just finished mount_local_partitions in GLIArchitectureTemplate
275    
276 agaffney 212 05 Jan 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
277     Added get_num_sectors() to GLIStorageDevice.
278    
279     04 Jan 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
280 agaffney 205 GLIStorageDevice now tracks partition boundaries in sectors instead of cylinders.
281 agaffney 208 Also now ignores <=100 sectors for free space. Removed remaining depends stuff
282     from GLIInstallProfile.
283 agaffney 205
284 agaffney 188 20 Dec 2004; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
285     GLIStorageDevice returns "unknown" instead of "" for get_type()
286    
287 agaffney 183 19 Dec 2004; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
288 agaffney 184 Added get_extended_partition() to GLIStorageDevice. Rewrote get_logicals() to
289     actually work. Commented out resizability checking code for speed.
290 agaffney 183
291 agaffney 174 17 Dec 2004; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
292     Switched to using dumpe2fs to determine free space left in ext2/3 filesystem in
293     GLIStorageDevice at the suggestion of plors
294    
295 agaffney 162 10 Dec 2004; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
296     Added a function to GLIUtility to pull a value from a make.conf-style config
297 agaffney 163 file. Minor type fix to GLIInstallProfile.py
298 agaffney 162
299 agaffney 160 09 Dec 2004; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
300 agaffney 163 Added code in GLIArchitectureTemplate.py to write netmounts into fstab. Separated
301     network mounts from partition data structure in GLIInstallProfile
302 agaffney 161
303 agaffney 147 27 Nov 2004; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
304     Changed the way GLIStorageDevice.py determines the amount a ext2/3 filesystem
305     can be resized.
306    
307 codeman 91 27 Oct 2004; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
308     Added some of the final functions to GLIInstallTemplate.
309     Yes this project is still active despite rare use of the Changelog!
310    
311 npmccallum 58 11 Jun 2004; Nathaniel McCallum <npmccallum@gentoo.org>
312     Added the GLIPartitionTools.py file. This is a temporary insertion of
313     partitioning tools that will eventually go into their own package.
314    
315 npmccallum 33 27 Mar 2004; Nathaniel McCallum <npmccallum@gentoo.org>
316     Added InstallProfileTODO.txt. Added GLIClientConfiguration.py (contains run-time
317     for the program). Added __init__(install_profile, client_configuration) to
318     GLI.InstallProfile. This sets install_profile and client_configuration once so as
319     to avoid constantly passing stuff every time we call a method.
320    
321 npmccallum 28 26 Mar 2004; Nathaniel McCallum <npmccallum@gentoo.org>
322    
323     Added another private method to GLI.InstallTemplate. _edit_config() modifies config
324     files without messing up all the other stuff in them. This will be used for making
325     changes to make.conf, rc.conf, /etc/conf.d/net, etc...
326    
327 npmccallum 27 25 Mar 2004; Nathaniel McCallum <npmccallum@gentoo.org>
328    
329     Added GLI.InstallTemplate framework. This is not yet functional. However, it does
330     have a few basic things. I added two private methods. One is _depends(). This
331     will be used for dependency checking (ie. unpacking a tarball requires that
332     partitioning has been done). The other is _exec_in_chroot(). This is the exact
333     same syntax as os.system(), however, instead of being run in the liveCD
334     environment, it runs in the chroot. This requires a bit of fork() magic, so I
335     isolated the code. Hope to work more this week to get this class formed...
336    
337 esammer 7 14 Feb 2004; Eric Sammer <esammer@gentoo.org>
338    
339     Added SAX parsing. Made GLI.InstallProfile a subclass of xml.sax.ContentHandler for
340     obvious reasons. Switched kernel_modules and users to be lists instead of tuples
341     to allow for easier modification (mutable, rather than immutable objects). Updated
342     existing pydoc and added more. Implemented body of GLI.InstallProfile.parse().
343     Cleaned file format of GLI.py a bit. Fixed all accessors to use self references.
344     Added initial unit test code.
345    
346 esammer 4 9 Feb 2004; Eric Sammer <esammer@gentoo.org>
347    
348     Added initial changelog. Setting up the basic structure of the CVS repository
349     for the project. Added the UML class diagram in docs. Added a skeletal GLI
350     python module. Added misc files such news, authors, etc.
