8     Back. Did the docuementation thang for ArchTemplate and ClientConfiguration.
9     Also updated TODO list.
10    
11 agaffney 509 14 Apr 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
12     Use blackace's one-liner to add comments for all function for use with
13     pythondoc.
14    
15 agaffney 503 13 Apr 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
16     Moved 'end >= device_sectors' check out of loop to check for next partition's
17 agaffney 505 start point (thanks to Marco Djukic). Fix >4 primary partitions on non-x86.
18 agaffney 507 Partitioning code now tracks start/end of extended for placing logicals. End
19     point of logical is now adjusted along with start.
20 agaffney 503
21 agaffney 497 11 Apr 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
22 agaffney 501 Finish overhaul of backend partitioning code. Fixed all bugs that stood in
23 agaffney 502 the way of partitioning from a blank disk. Add int() around access to minor
24     key in partition information due to new partition code leaving them as float.
25 agaffney 497
26 agaffney 494 10 Apr 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
27 agaffney 495 tidy_partitions() function in GLIStorageDevice. Tweaks to tidy code
28 agaffney 494
29 agaffney 492 9 Apr 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
30     Major GLIStorageDevice overhaul...all MB now instead of sectors.
31    
32     8 Apr 2005; Scott Myron <samyron@gentoo.org>
33 samyron 491 Added support for DHCP options and MAC addresses in the InstallProfile.
34    
35 agaffney 481 3 Apr 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
36 agaffney 484 Changed mountopts check to work for blank and whitespace. Pipe emerge through

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

173     added quickpkg to TODO list
174 codeman 319
175 codeman 318 5 Feb 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
176     Changed the raising of 'warning' exceptions to a simple log of the error
177     so that the installer can continue.
178    
179 codeman 314 3 Feb 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
180     Some big changes. First, changed most output to display_on_tty8.

182     Also did some cleanups of old commented lines.
183    
184 agaffney 310 1 Feb 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>

187 agaffney 310
188 codeman 306 31 Jan 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
189     more updates to TODO list. hopefully we'll soon start removing items instead
190     of adding them.
191    
192 agaffney 301 29 Jan 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
193     Changed the way GLIStorageDevice.get_max_sectors_for_resize() works
194    
195 codeman 293 27 Jan 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
196 codeman 295 updated TODO list. (again)
197 codeman 293
198 codeman 286 25 Jan 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
199     changed output of portmap start to display_on_tty8.
200     fixed bootloader for udev and multiple kernels
201 codeman 288 fixed custom kernel config (again)
202 codeman 286
203 codeman 281 22 Jan 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
204     changed default value of CC._enable_ssh to True because this is smart.
205 codeman 282 added code to allow custom kernel .config. may be unstable and break. sorry.
206 codeman 281
207 agaffney 278 21 Jan 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
208     partition() now waits until after it checks for partition flags before delete
209     the partitions :P
210    
211 agaffney 271 19 Jan 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
212 agaffney 272 Updated TODO. swapon failure it temporarily not an error. swapon is an error
213 agaffney 277 again. is_uri() check only performed on portage_tree_snapshot_uri if it isn't
214     blank.
215 agaffney 271
216 codeman 268 19 Jan 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
217     Various fixes related to the add_users function. Still not yet finished.
218 codeman 269 Added things to the TODO list. Lets start using that!
219 codeman 268
220 agaffney 264 18 Jan 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
221     Added code to x86Template to format newly created partitions. Also added
222 agaffney 265 some error checking code. GLIStorageDevice passes 'minor' with data to
223 agaffney 266 InstallProfile. Added partition() call back in ArchTemplate. Fixed NFS
224     mounting code.
225 agaffney 264
226 codeman 263 18 Jan 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
227     Took out unnecessary setting of random livecd root password. the cd already
228     sets it randomly.
229    
230 agaffney 255 15 Jan 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
231     Took out an unneeded step from CC's run()
232    
233 codeman 248 15 Jan 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
234     Attempt at detecting and adding windows partitions to lilo.
235    
236 codeman 235 14 Jan 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
237 codeman 237 Added lilo code and cleaned up lilo code. also do_partitioning renamed to
238     partition. fixed misc exit_status => exitstatus typo.
239 codeman 235
240 agaffney 230 11 Jan 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
241 agaffney 232 Added basic code for resizing filesystems with pyparted. Fixed code for
242     resizing ntfs and ext2/3.
243 agaffney 230
244 agaffney 228 10 Jan 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
245     Fixed partition() in x86Template so that it scans through logicals and deletes
246 agaffney 229 before deleting containing extended partition. Also clears partition table to
247     be safe before third pass.
248 agaffney 228
249 codeman 226 08 Jan 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
250     Added mount_network_shares. not able to test it from this computer.
251     will test when i get back to school.
252     also added start_portmap to the client_controller as an always-do.
253     agaffney says this is needed for NFS mounts to work.
254    
255 agaffney 225 08 Jan 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
256     Partial rewrite of partitioning code in x86Template. No longer shells out to
257     parted to perform actions, now uses all pyparted calls. Code "works" in a
258     test, but still needs lots of TLC. Also modified tests/install.py to work
259     with x86Template and GLIClientConfiguration.
260    
261 agaffney 221 07 Jan 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
262     Initial move of partitioning code from ArchTemplate to x86Template.
263 agaffney 220
264 codeman 219 07 Jan 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
265 agaffney 224 Added grp_install and services to InstallProfile. forgot about the set_root_password
266 codeman 222
267     07 Jan 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
268 codeman 219 Fixed a few more edit_configs. fixed a chroot multicommand bug thanks to agaffney.
269     Test Install ran very well (skipping partitioning).
270    
271 codeman 213 05 Jan 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
272 codeman 215 My mid-day update. rewrote mount_local_partitions for order of mounting. fixed prepare_chroot
273 codeman 216 rewrote configure_fstab and install_bootloader for new partition format. fixed a few _edit_configs.
274     some may still have eluded me.
275 codeman 215
276     05 Jan 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
277 codeman 213 Overhauled the entire ArchTemplate and did a lot of other misc fixes in order to test it.
278     Just finished mount_local_partitions in GLIArchitectureTemplate
279    
280 agaffney 212 05 Jan 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
281     Added get_num_sectors() to GLIStorageDevice.
282    
283     04 Jan 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
284 agaffney 205 GLIStorageDevice now tracks partition boundaries in sectors instead of cylinders.
285 agaffney 208 Also now ignores <=100 sectors for free space. Removed remaining depends stuff
286     from GLIInstallProfile.
287 agaffney 205
288 agaffney 188 20 Dec 2004; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
289     GLIStorageDevice returns "unknown" instead of "" for get_type()
290    
291 agaffney 183 19 Dec 2004; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
292 agaffney 184 Added get_extended_partition() to GLIStorageDevice. Rewrote get_logicals() to
293     actually work. Commented out resizability checking code for speed.
294 agaffney 183
295 agaffney 174 17 Dec 2004; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
296     Switched to using dumpe2fs to determine free space left in ext2/3 filesystem in
297     GLIStorageDevice at the suggestion of plors
298    
299 agaffney 162 10 Dec 2004; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
300     Added a function to GLIUtility to pull a value from a make.conf-style config
301 agaffney 163 file. Minor type fix to GLIInstallProfile.py
302 agaffney 162
303 agaffney 160 09 Dec 2004; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
304 agaffney 163 Added code in GLIArchitectureTemplate.py to write netmounts into fstab. Separated
305     network mounts from partition data structure in GLIInstallProfile
306 agaffney 161
307 agaffney 147 27 Nov 2004; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
308     Changed the way GLIStorageDevice.py determines the amount a ext2/3 filesystem
309     can be resized.
310    
311 codeman 91 27 Oct 2004; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
312     Added some of the final functions to GLIInstallTemplate.
313     Yes this project is still active despite rare use of the Changelog!
314    
315 npmccallum 58 11 Jun 2004; Nathaniel McCallum <npmccallum@gentoo.org>
316     Added the GLIPartitionTools.py file. This is a temporary insertion of
317     partitioning tools that will eventually go into their own package.
318    
319 npmccallum 33 27 Mar 2004; Nathaniel McCallum <npmccallum@gentoo.org>
320     Added InstallProfileTODO.txt. Added GLIClientConfiguration.py (contains run-time
321     for the program). Added __init__(install_profile, client_configuration) to
322     GLI.InstallProfile. This sets install_profile and client_configuration once so as
323     to avoid constantly passing stuff every time we call a method.
324    
325 npmccallum 28 26 Mar 2004; Nathaniel McCallum <npmccallum@gentoo.org>
326    
327     Added another private method to GLI.InstallTemplate. _edit_config() modifies config
328     files without messing up all the other stuff in them. This will be used for making
329     changes to make.conf, rc.conf, /etc/conf.d/net, etc...
330    
331 npmccallum 27 25 Mar 2004; Nathaniel McCallum <npmccallum@gentoo.org>
332    
333     Added GLI.InstallTemplate framework. This is not yet functional. However, it does
334     have a few basic things. I added two private methods. One is _depends(). This
335     will be used for dependency checking (ie. unpacking a tarball requires that
336     partitioning has been done). The other is _exec_in_chroot(). This is the exact
337     same syntax as os.system(), however, instead of being run in the liveCD
338     environment, it runs in the chroot. This requires a bit of fork() magic, so I
339     isolated the code. Hope to work more this week to get this class formed...
340    
341 esammer 7 14 Feb 2004; Eric Sammer <esammer@gentoo.org>
342    
343     Added SAX parsing. Made GLI.InstallProfile a subclass of xml.sax.ContentHandler for
344     obvious reasons. Switched kernel_modules and users to be lists instead of tuples
345     to allow for easier modification (mutable, rather than immutable objects). Updated
346     existing pydoc and added more. Implemented body of GLI.InstallProfile.parse().
347     Cleaned file format of GLI.py a bit. Fixed all accessors to use self references.
348     Added initial unit test code.
349    
350 esammer 4 9 Feb 2004; Eric Sammer <esammer@gentoo.org>
351    
352     Added initial changelog. Setting up the basic structure of the CVS repository
353     for the project. Added the UML class diagram in docs. Added a skeletal GLI
354     python module. Added misc files such news, authors, etc.
