7 codeman 522 17 Apr 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
8     Update AUTHORS, NEWS, TODO. Added documentation to GLILogger.
9    
10 agaffney 521 17 Apr 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
11     Reverted change to ArchTemplate and added support for commented line in old
12     code.
13    
14 agaffney 518 16 Apr 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
15     Changed _edit_config() to modify value in-place instead of commenting out and
16     adding the new value to the end of the file.
17    
18 codeman 512 15 Apr 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
19     Back. Did the docuementation thang for ArchTemplate and ClientConfiguration.
20     Also updated TODO list.
21    
22 agaffney 509 14 Apr 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
23     Use blackace's one-liner to add comments for all function for use with
24     pythondoc.
25    
26 agaffney 503 13 Apr 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
27     Moved 'end >= device_sectors' check out of loop to check for next partition's
28 agaffney 505 start point (thanks to Marco Djukic). Fix >4 primary partitions on non-x86.
29 agaffney 507 Partitioning code now tracks start/end of extended for placing logicals. End
30     point of logical is now adjusted along with start.
31 agaffney 503
32 agaffney 497 11 Apr 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
33 agaffney 501 Finish overhaul of backend partitioning code. Fixed all bugs that stood in
34 agaffney 502 the way of partitioning from a blank disk. Add int() around access to minor
35     key in partition information due to new partition code leaving them as float.
36 agaffney 497
37 agaffney 494 10 Apr 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
38 agaffney 495 tidy_partitions() function in GLIStorageDevice. Tweaks to tidy code

52 codeman 479 added --emptytree to stage2. fixed ethx not being added to runlevel defalt.
53 codeman 475
54 codeman 467 31 Mar 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>

56    
57 agaffney 463 30 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
58     Check for disklabel type "loop" and use the device name without a minor.
59    
60 agaffney 453 29 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
61     Remove /tmp/compile_output.log and /var/log/install.log when install is
62 agaffney 456 complete. Added code to (hopefully) keep 2nd thread running after install.
63 agaffney 458 Patch from zahna for extra arguments to the kernel. Patch from zahna to add
64 agaffney 460 get_eth_info() function. Remove most of content in amd64ArchTemplate and
65 agaffney 461 make it inherit from x86Archtemplate. kernel_args -> bootloader_kernel_args
66 agaffney 453
67 agaffney 451 28 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
68 agaffney 452 Added 'append_log=True' to all spawn() calls using logfile=. Append to log
69     when unpacking tarball.
70 agaffney 451
71 codeman 443 28 Mar 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
72 codeman 446 rewrote filesystem_tools. looks like it works so ripping out all the old
73     filesystem_tools code.
74 codeman 443
75 codeman 427 26 Mar 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
76     Changed the print statements to logging in the partitioning BE code.
77     the logger may need to be imported to the x86archtemplate. unknown yet.
78 codeman 432 Added the finishing_cleanup function.
79 codeman 433 added a fix to the logger from BenUrban
80 codeman 427
81 codeman 422 25 Mar 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
82     changed InstallProfile to remove is_uri check on kernel, stage, and portage
83     URIs. The blank uri check has been commented out.
84 codeman 426 ripped out error checking of set_services. this is done by _add_to_runlevel.
85 codeman 422
86 agaffney 419 25 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
87     set_stage_tarball_uri() doesn't raise an exception on a blank string.
88    
89 agaffney 415 24 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
90     GRP-ish quickpkg code pulls PKGDIR and PORTAGE_TMPDIR from make.conf info in
91 agaffney 416 the install profile if available. Commented out spawn() debugging prints
92 agaffney 415
93 codeman 409 23 Mar 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
94     small changes to setup_network_post. moved adding to runlevel of net.x to
95     after the device gets symlinked. added domainname runlevel command.
96    
97 agaffney 401 23 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
98 agaffney 408 minor fix (hopefully) to livecd-kernel code. Removed call to mkvardb in
99 agaffney 412 livecd-kernel code as it's now done by catalyst. Switch _emerge() call to
100     spawn() call in livecd-kernel code to pass environment variables.
101 agaffney 414 livecd-kernel code pulls PKGDIR and PORTAGE_TMPDIR from make.conf info in
102     the install profile if available.
103 agaffney 402
104     23 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
105 agaffney 401 Added code to build_kernel() and emerge_kernel_sources() in ArchTemplate
106     to handle installing the livecd kernel into the new system.
107    
108 codeman 395 22 Mar 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
109     should emerge hotplug and coldplug before adding them to runlevel.
110    
111 codeman 390 21 Mar 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
112 codeman 395 took chroot out of grub_install command.
113    
114     21 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
115     Changed chroot wrapper code in spawn() to write the wrapper the python way
116     instead of the bash way to avoid quote conflicts. Added
117 agaffney 392 'logfile=self._compile_logfile' to a number of spawn() calls. Added new
118 agaffney 394 hash_password() function to GLIUtility. Remove command to 'rm /tmp/spawn.sh'
119     as it breaks the piping.
120 codeman 390
121 codeman 387 20 Mar 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
122     Added the amd64ArchitectureTemplate, mostly a copy of x86 without lilo.
123    
124 agaffney 385 20 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
125     Added _get_packages_to_emerge() to GLIArchitectureTemplate and calls in
126 agaffney 386 stage1() and stage2(). Added 'origminor' parameter to GLIStorageDevice and
127 agaffney 389 GLIInstallProfile.
128 agaffney 385
129 agaffney 379 19 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
130 agaffney 384 Fixed a couple bugs in add_netmount() in GLIInstallProfile. spawn() outputs
131     to the actual tty8 with display_on_tty8 flag. Compile output logfile moved
132     into /mnt/gentoo in prepare_chroot()
133 agaffney 379
134 agaffney 375 18 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
135     Add sigunmask.c contributed by d_m (on freenode) to counteract python's
136 agaffney 377 retarted behavior regarding threads and signals. Add code to convert MB/%/*
137     to start/end sectors
138 agaffney 375
139     17 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
140 agaffney 374 Add 2>&1 to cmd in spawn()
141    
142 agaffney 369 16 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
143     Modified GLIUtility.exitsuccess() to work with return value from
144 agaffney 371 commands.getstatusoutput instead of os.waitpid(). spawn() automatically
145     creates wrapper script for commands run inside chroot so multiple commands
146 agaffney 373 and redirection can be used. Change exitsuccess() back. Added 'chmod a+x'
147     for the generated script from spawn()
148 agaffney 369
149 codeman 361 16 Mar 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
150     Removed default values for stage tarball URI and portage tree URI from
151     InstallProfile. These should be set by the FEs. also added services step to
152     ArchTemplate and coldplug/hotplug runlevels to the genkernel step.
153     Possibly fixed CC DHCP bug with -n. (thx agaffney)
154    
155 codeman 359 14 Mar 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
156     Small fix for setting the default gateway. Also added feature to dialogfe.
157    
158 agaffney 357 7 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
159     Switched spawn() over to commands.getstatusoutput() instead of fork/waitpid
160    
161 codeman 345 1 Mar 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
162 codeman 346 Fixed a bunch of true -> True typos. lots of em
163 codeman 347 only write new resolv.conf if there are dns servers listed.
164 codeman 345
165 agaffney 343 1 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
166     Commented out 'display_on_tty8=True' in start_portmap()
167    
168 codeman 341 18 Feb 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
169     added progress bar to dialogfe and fix logger bug in ArchTemplate.
170    
171 agaffney 337 18 Feb 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
172 agaffney 339 Created GLISayWhat module. Renamed GLISayWhat to GLILocalization. Moved
173     lang parameter to __init__()
174 codeman 331
175     10 Feb 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>

180     'emerge -p blah'
181 agaffney 322
182 codeman 319 6 Feb 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
183 codeman 320 check for dhcp in the network stuff and emerge it if it is.
184     added quickpkg to TODO list
185 codeman 319
186 codeman 318 5 Feb 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
187     Changed the raising of 'warning' exceptions to a simple log of the error
188     so that the installer can continue.
189    
190 codeman 314 3 Feb 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
191     Some big changes. First, changed most output to display_on_tty8.
192     Second, added log lines to all templates. Some smaller fixes such as typos.
193     Also did some cleanups of old commented lines.
194    
195 agaffney 310 1 Feb 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
196 agaffney 312 Changed tty8 output to a fifo. Minor GLIStorageDevice fix thanks to BenUrban.
197 agaffney 313 Undo change with fix. Escaping fix in GLIStorageDevice.py
198 agaffney 310
199 codeman 306 31 Jan 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
200     more updates to TODO list. hopefully we'll soon start removing items instead
201     of adding them.
202    
203 agaffney 301 29 Jan 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
204     Changed the way GLIStorageDevice.get_max_sectors_for_resize() works
205    
206 codeman 293 27 Jan 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
207 codeman 295 updated TODO list. (again)
208 codeman 293
209 codeman 286 25 Jan 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
210     changed output of portmap start to display_on_tty8.
211     fixed bootloader for udev and multiple kernels
212 codeman 288 fixed custom kernel config (again)
213 codeman 286
214 codeman 281 22 Jan 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
215     changed default value of CC._enable_ssh to True because this is smart.
216 codeman 282 added code to allow custom kernel .config. may be unstable and break. sorry.
217 codeman 281
218 agaffney 278 21 Jan 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
219     partition() now waits until after it checks for partition flags before delete
220     the partitions :P
221    
222 agaffney 271 19 Jan 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
223 agaffney 272 Updated TODO. swapon failure it temporarily not an error. swapon is an error
224 agaffney 277 again. is_uri() check only performed on portage_tree_snapshot_uri if it isn't
225     blank.
226 agaffney 271
227 codeman 268 19 Jan 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
228     Various fixes related to the add_users function. Still not yet finished.
229 codeman 269 Added things to the TODO list. Lets start using that!
230 codeman 268
231 agaffney 264 18 Jan 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
232     Added code to x86Template to format newly created partitions. Also added
233 agaffney 265 some error checking code. GLIStorageDevice passes 'minor' with data to
234 agaffney 266 InstallProfile. Added partition() call back in ArchTemplate. Fixed NFS
235     mounting code.
236 agaffney 264
237 codeman 263 18 Jan 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
238     Took out unnecessary setting of random livecd root password. the cd already
239     sets it randomly.
240    
241 agaffney 255 15 Jan 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
242     Took out an unneeded step from CC's run()
243    
244 codeman 248 15 Jan 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
245     Attempt at detecting and adding windows partitions to lilo.
246    
247 codeman 235 14 Jan 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
248 codeman 237 Added lilo code and cleaned up lilo code. also do_partitioning renamed to
249     partition. fixed misc exit_status => exitstatus typo.
250 codeman 235
251 agaffney 230 11 Jan 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
252 agaffney 232 Added basic code for resizing filesystems with pyparted. Fixed code for
253     resizing ntfs and ext2/3.
254 agaffney 230
255 agaffney 228 10 Jan 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
256     Fixed partition() in x86Template so that it scans through logicals and deletes
257 agaffney 229 before deleting containing extended partition. Also clears partition table to
258     be safe before third pass.
259 agaffney 228
260 codeman 226 08 Jan 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
261     Added mount_network_shares. not able to test it from this computer.
262     will test when i get back to school.
263     also added start_portmap to the client_controller as an always-do.
264     agaffney says this is needed for NFS mounts to work.
265    
266 agaffney 225 08 Jan 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
267     Partial rewrite of partitioning code in x86Template. No longer shells out to
268     parted to perform actions, now uses all pyparted calls. Code "works" in a
269     test, but still needs lots of TLC. Also modified tests/install.py to work
270     with x86Template and GLIClientConfiguration.
271    
272 agaffney 221 07 Jan 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
273     Initial move of partitioning code from ArchTemplate to x86Template.
274 agaffney 220
275 codeman 219 07 Jan 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
276 agaffney 224 Added grp_install and services to InstallProfile. forgot about the set_root_password
277 codeman 222
278     07 Jan 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
279 codeman 219 Fixed a few more edit_configs. fixed a chroot multicommand bug thanks to agaffney.
280     Test Install ran very well (skipping partitioning).
281    
282 codeman 213 05 Jan 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
283 codeman 215 My mid-day update. rewrote mount_local_partitions for order of mounting. fixed prepare_chroot
284 codeman 216 rewrote configure_fstab and install_bootloader for new partition format. fixed a few _edit_configs.
285     some may still have eluded me.
286 codeman 215
287     05 Jan 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
288 codeman 213 Overhauled the entire ArchTemplate and did a lot of other misc fixes in order to test it.
289     Just finished mount_local_partitions in GLIArchitectureTemplate
290    
291 agaffney 212 05 Jan 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
292     Added get_num_sectors() to GLIStorageDevice.
293    
294     04 Jan 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
295 agaffney 205 GLIStorageDevice now tracks partition boundaries in sectors instead of cylinders.
296 agaffney 208 Also now ignores <=100 sectors for free space. Removed remaining depends stuff
297     from GLIInstallProfile.
298 agaffney 205
299 agaffney 188 20 Dec 2004; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
300     GLIStorageDevice returns "unknown" instead of "" for get_type()
301    
302 agaffney 183 19 Dec 2004; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
303 agaffney 184 Added get_extended_partition() to GLIStorageDevice. Rewrote get_logicals() to
304     actually work. Commented out resizability checking code for speed.
305 agaffney 183
306 agaffney 174 17 Dec 2004; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
307     Switched to using dumpe2fs to determine free space left in ext2/3 filesystem in
308     GLIStorageDevice at the suggestion of plors
309    
310 agaffney 162 10 Dec 2004; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
311     Added a function to GLIUtility to pull a value from a make.conf-style config
312 agaffney 163 file. Minor type fix to GLIInstallProfile.py
313 agaffney 162
314 agaffney 160 09 Dec 2004; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
315 agaffney 163 Added code in GLIArchitectureTemplate.py to write netmounts into fstab. Separated
316     network mounts from partition data structure in GLIInstallProfile
317 agaffney 161
318 agaffney 147 27 Nov 2004; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
319     Changed the way GLIStorageDevice.py determines the amount a ext2/3 filesystem
320     can be resized.
321    
322 codeman 91 27 Oct 2004; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
323     Added some of the final functions to GLIInstallTemplate.
324     Yes this project is still active despite rare use of the Changelog!
325    
326 npmccallum 58 11 Jun 2004; Nathaniel McCallum <npmccallum@gentoo.org>
327     Added the GLIPartitionTools.py file. This is a temporary insertion of
328     partitioning tools that will eventually go into their own package.
329    
330 npmccallum 33 27 Mar 2004; Nathaniel McCallum <npmccallum@gentoo.org>
331     Added InstallProfileTODO.txt. Added GLIClientConfiguration.py (contains run-time
332     for the program). Added __init__(install_profile, client_configuration) to
333     GLI.InstallProfile. This sets install_profile and client_configuration once so as
334     to avoid constantly passing stuff every time we call a method.
335    
336 npmccallum 28 26 Mar 2004; Nathaniel McCallum <npmccallum@gentoo.org>
337    
338     Added another private method to GLI.InstallTemplate. _edit_config() modifies config
339     files without messing up all the other stuff in them. This will be used for making
340     changes to make.conf, rc.conf, /etc/conf.d/net, etc...
341    
342 npmccallum 27 25 Mar 2004; Nathaniel McCallum <npmccallum@gentoo.org>
343    
344     Added GLI.InstallTemplate framework. This is not yet functional. However, it does
345     have a few basic things. I added two private methods. One is _depends(). This
346     will be used for dependency checking (ie. unpacking a tarball requires that
347     partitioning has been done). The other is _exec_in_chroot(). This is the exact
348     same syntax as os.system(), however, instead of being run in the liveCD
349     environment, it runs in the chroot. This requires a bit of fork() magic, so I
350     isolated the code. Hope to work more this week to get this class formed...
351    
352 esammer 7 14 Feb 2004; Eric Sammer <esammer@gentoo.org>
353    
354     Added SAX parsing. Made GLI.InstallProfile a subclass of xml.sax.ContentHandler for
355     obvious reasons. Switched kernel_modules and users to be lists instead of tuples
356     to allow for easier modification (mutable, rather than immutable objects). Updated
357     existing pydoc and added more. Implemented body of GLI.InstallProfile.parse().
358     Cleaned file format of GLI.py a bit. Fixed all accessors to use self references.
359     Added initial unit test code.
