40 agaffney 503
41 agaffney 497 11 Apr 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>

68    
69 agaffney 453 29 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
70     Remove /tmp/compile_output.log and /var/log/install.log when install is
71 agaffney 456 complete. Added code to (hopefully) keep 2nd thread running after install.
72 agaffney 458 Patch from zahna for extra arguments to the kernel. Patch from zahna to add
73 agaffney 460 get_eth_info() function. Remove most of content in amd64ArchTemplate and
74 agaffney 461 make it inherit from x86Archtemplate. kernel_args -> bootloader_kernel_args
75 agaffney 453
76 agaffney 451 28 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
77 agaffney 452 Added 'append_log=True' to all spawn() calls using logfile=. Append to log

79 agaffney 451
80 codeman 443 28 Mar 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
81 codeman 446 rewrote filesystem_tools. looks like it works so ripping out all the old
82     filesystem_tools code.
83 codeman 443
84 codeman 427 26 Mar 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
85     Changed the print statements to logging in the partitioning BE code.

89 codeman 427
90 codeman 422 25 Mar 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
91     changed InstallProfile to remove is_uri check on kernel, stage, and portage
92     URIs. The blank uri check has been commented out.
93 codeman 426 ripped out error checking of set_services. this is done by _add_to_runlevel.
94 codeman 422
95 agaffney 419 25 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
96     set_stage_tarball_uri() doesn't raise an exception on a blank string.
97    
98 agaffney 415 24 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
99     GRP-ish quickpkg code pulls PKGDIR and PORTAGE_TMPDIR from make.conf info in

101 agaffney 415
102 codeman 409 23 Mar 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
103     small changes to setup_network_post. moved adding to runlevel of net.x to

105    
106 agaffney 401 23 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
107 agaffney 408 minor fix (hopefully) to livecd-kernel code. Removed call to mkvardb in
108 agaffney 412 livecd-kernel code as it's now done by catalyst. Switch _emerge() call to
109     spawn() call in livecd-kernel code to pass environment variables.
110 agaffney 414 livecd-kernel code pulls PKGDIR and PORTAGE_TMPDIR from make.conf info in
111     the install profile if available.
112 agaffney 402
113     23 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
114 agaffney 401 Added code to build_kernel() and emerge_kernel_sources() in ArchTemplate
115     to handle installing the livecd kernel into the new system.
116    
117 codeman 395 22 Mar 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
118     should emerge hotplug and coldplug before adding them to runlevel.
119    
120 codeman 390 21 Mar 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
121 codeman 395 took chroot out of grub_install command.
122    
123     21 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
124     Changed chroot wrapper code in spawn() to write the wrapper the python way
125     instead of the bash way to avoid quote conflicts. Added
126 agaffney 392 'logfile=self._compile_logfile' to a number of spawn() calls. Added new
127 agaffney 394 hash_password() function to GLIUtility. Remove command to 'rm /tmp/spawn.sh'
128     as it breaks the piping.
129 codeman 390
130 codeman 387 20 Mar 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
131     Added the amd64ArchitectureTemplate, mostly a copy of x86 without lilo.
132    
133 agaffney 385 20 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
134     Added _get_packages_to_emerge() to GLIArchitectureTemplate and calls in
135 agaffney 386 stage1() and stage2(). Added 'origminor' parameter to GLIStorageDevice and
136 agaffney 389 GLIInstallProfile.
137 agaffney 385
138 agaffney 379 19 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
139 agaffney 384 Fixed a couple bugs in add_netmount() in GLIInstallProfile. spawn() outputs
140     to the actual tty8 with display_on_tty8 flag. Compile output logfile moved
141     into /mnt/gentoo in prepare_chroot()
142 agaffney 379
143 agaffney 375 18 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
144     Add sigunmask.c contributed by d_m (on freenode) to counteract python's
145 agaffney 377 retarted behavior regarding threads and signals. Add code to convert MB/%/*
146     to start/end sectors
147 agaffney 375
148     17 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
149 agaffney 374 Add 2>&1 to cmd in spawn()
150    
151 agaffney 369 16 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
152     Modified GLIUtility.exitsuccess() to work with return value from
153 agaffney 371 commands.getstatusoutput instead of os.waitpid(). spawn() automatically
154     creates wrapper script for commands run inside chroot so multiple commands
155 agaffney 373 and redirection can be used. Change exitsuccess() back. Added 'chmod a+x'
156     for the generated script from spawn()
157 agaffney 369
158 codeman 361 16 Mar 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
159     Removed default values for stage tarball URI and portage tree URI from
160     InstallProfile. These should be set by the FEs. also added services step to
161     ArchTemplate and coldplug/hotplug runlevels to the genkernel step.
162     Possibly fixed CC DHCP bug with -n. (thx agaffney)
163    
164 codeman 359 14 Mar 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
165     Small fix for setting the default gateway. Also added feature to dialogfe.
166    
167 agaffney 357 7 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
168     Switched spawn() over to commands.getstatusoutput() instead of fork/waitpid
169    
170 codeman 345 1 Mar 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
171 codeman 346 Fixed a bunch of true -> True typos. lots of em
172 codeman 347 only write new resolv.conf if there are dns servers listed.
173 codeman 345
174 agaffney 343 1 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
175     Commented out 'display_on_tty8=True' in start_portmap()
176    
177 codeman 341 18 Feb 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
178     added progress bar to dialogfe and fix logger bug in ArchTemplate.
179    
180 agaffney 337 18 Feb 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
181 agaffney 339 Created GLISayWhat module. Renamed GLISayWhat to GLILocalization. Moved
182     lang parameter to __init__()
183 codeman 331

192 codeman 320 check for dhcp in the network stuff and emerge it if it is.
193     added quickpkg to TODO list
194 codeman 319
195 codeman 318 5 Feb 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
196     Changed the raising of 'warning' exceptions to a simple log of the error
197     so that the installer can continue.
198    
199 codeman 314 3 Feb 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
200     Some big changes. First, changed most output to display_on_tty8.
201     Second, added log lines to all templates. Some smaller fixes such as typos.
202     Also did some cleanups of old commented lines.
203    
204 agaffney 310 1 Feb 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>

207 agaffney 310
208 codeman 306 31 Jan 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
209     more updates to TODO list. hopefully we'll soon start removing items instead
210     of adding them.
211    
212 agaffney 301 29 Jan 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
213     Changed the way GLIStorageDevice.get_max_sectors_for_resize() works
214    
215 codeman 293 27 Jan 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
216 codeman 295 updated TODO list. (again)
217 codeman 293
218 codeman 286 25 Jan 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
219     changed output of portmap start to display_on_tty8.
220     fixed bootloader for udev and multiple kernels
221 codeman 288 fixed custom kernel config (again)
222 codeman 286
223 codeman 281 22 Jan 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
224     changed default value of CC._enable_ssh to True because this is smart.
225 codeman 282 added code to allow custom kernel .config. may be unstable and break. sorry.
226 codeman 281
227 agaffney 278 21 Jan 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
228     partition() now waits until after it checks for partition flags before delete
229     the partitions :P
230    
231 agaffney 271 19 Jan 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
232 agaffney 272 Updated TODO. swapon failure it temporarily not an error. swapon is an error
233 agaffney 277 again. is_uri() check only performed on portage_tree_snapshot_uri if it isn't
234     blank.
235 agaffney 271
236 codeman 268 19 Jan 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
237     Various fixes related to the add_users function. Still not yet finished.
238 codeman 269 Added things to the TODO list. Lets start using that!
239 codeman 268
240 agaffney 264 18 Jan 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
241     Added code to x86Template to format newly created partitions. Also added
242 agaffney 265 some error checking code. GLIStorageDevice passes 'minor' with data to
243 agaffney 266 InstallProfile. Added partition() call back in ArchTemplate. Fixed NFS
244     mounting code.
245 agaffney 264
246 codeman 263 18 Jan 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
247     Took out unnecessary setting of random livecd root password. the cd already
248     sets it randomly.
249    
250 agaffney 255 15 Jan 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
251     Took out an unneeded step from CC's run()
252

254     Attempt at detecting and adding windows partitions to lilo.
255    
256 codeman 235 14 Jan 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
257 codeman 237 Added lilo code and cleaned up lilo code. also do_partitioning renamed to
258     partition. fixed misc exit_status => exitstatus typo.
259 codeman 235
260 agaffney 230 11 Jan 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
261 agaffney 232 Added basic code for resizing filesystems with pyparted. Fixed code for
262     resizing ntfs and ext2/3.
263 agaffney 230
264 agaffney 228 10 Jan 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
265     Fixed partition() in x86Template so that it scans through logicals and deletes
266 agaffney 229 before deleting containing extended partition. Also clears partition table to
267     be safe before third pass.
268 agaffney 228
269 codeman 226 08 Jan 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
270     Added mount_network_shares. not able to test it from this computer.
271     will test when i get back to school.
272     also added start_portmap to the client_controller as an always-do.
273     agaffney says this is needed for NFS mounts to work.
274    
275 agaffney 225 08 Jan 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
276     Partial rewrite of partitioning code in x86Template. No longer shells out to
277     parted to perform actions, now uses all pyparted calls. Code "works" in a
278     test, but still needs lots of TLC. Also modified tests/install.py to work
279     with x86Template and GLIClientConfiguration.
280    
281 agaffney 221 07 Jan 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
282     Initial move of partitioning code from ArchTemplate to x86Template.
283 agaffney 220
284 codeman 219 07 Jan 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
285 agaffney 224 Added grp_install and services to InstallProfile. forgot about the set_root_password
286 codeman 222
287     07 Jan 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
288 codeman 219 Fixed a few more edit_configs. fixed a chroot multicommand bug thanks to agaffney.
289     Test Install ran very well (skipping partitioning).
290    
291 codeman 213 05 Jan 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
292 codeman 215 My mid-day update. rewrote mount_local_partitions for order of mounting. fixed prepare_chroot
293 codeman 216 rewrote configure_fstab and install_bootloader for new partition format. fixed a few _edit_configs.
294     some may still have eluded me.
295 codeman 215
296     05 Jan 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
297 codeman 213 Overhauled the entire ArchTemplate and did a lot of other misc fixes in order to test it.
298     Just finished mount_local_partitions in GLIArchitectureTemplate
299    
300 agaffney 212 05 Jan 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
301     Added get_num_sectors() to GLIStorageDevice.
302    
303     04 Jan 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
304 agaffney 205 GLIStorageDevice now tracks partition boundaries in sectors instead of cylinders.
305 agaffney 208 Also now ignores <=100 sectors for free space. Removed remaining depends stuff
306     from GLIInstallProfile.
307 agaffney 205
308 agaffney 188 20 Dec 2004; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
309     GLIStorageDevice returns "unknown" instead of "" for get_type()
310    
311 agaffney 183 19 Dec 2004; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
312 agaffney 184 Added get_extended_partition() to GLIStorageDevice. Rewrote get_logicals() to
313     actually work. Commented out resizability checking code for speed.
314 agaffney 183
315 agaffney 174 17 Dec 2004; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
316     Switched to using dumpe2fs to determine free space left in ext2/3 filesystem in
317     GLIStorageDevice at the suggestion of plors
318    
319 agaffney 162 10 Dec 2004; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
320     Added a function to GLIUtility to pull a value from a make.conf-style config
321 agaffney 163 file. Minor type fix to GLIInstallProfile.py
322 agaffney 162
323 agaffney 160 09 Dec 2004; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
324 agaffney 163 Added code in GLIArchitectureTemplate.py to write netmounts into fstab. Separated
325     network mounts from partition data structure in GLIInstallProfile
326 agaffney 161
327 agaffney 147 27 Nov 2004; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
328     Changed the way GLIStorageDevice.py determines the amount a ext2/3 filesystem
329     can be resized.
330    
331 codeman 91 27 Oct 2004; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
332     Added some of the final functions to GLIInstallTemplate.
333     Yes this project is still active despite rare use of the Changelog!
334    
335 npmccallum 58 11 Jun 2004; Nathaniel McCallum <npmccallum@gentoo.org>
336     Added the GLIPartitionTools.py file. This is a temporary insertion of
337     partitioning tools that will eventually go into their own package.
338    
339 npmccallum 33 27 Mar 2004; Nathaniel McCallum <npmccallum@gentoo.org>
340     Added InstallProfileTODO.txt. Added GLIClientConfiguration.py (contains run-time
341     for the program). Added __init__(install_profile, client_configuration) to
342     GLI.InstallProfile. This sets install_profile and client_configuration once so as
343     to avoid constantly passing stuff every time we call a method.
344    
345 npmccallum 28 26 Mar 2004; Nathaniel McCallum <npmccallum@gentoo.org>
346    
347     Added another private method to GLI.InstallTemplate. _edit_config() modifies config
348     files without messing up all the other stuff in them. This will be used for making
349     changes to make.conf, rc.conf, /etc/conf.d/net, etc...
350    
351 npmccallum 27 25 Mar 2004; Nathaniel McCallum <npmccallum@gentoo.org>
352    
353     Added GLI.InstallTemplate framework. This is not yet functional. However, it does
354     have a few basic things. I added two private methods. One is _depends(). This
355     will be used for dependency checking (ie. unpacking a tarball requires that
356     partitioning has been done). The other is _exec_in_chroot(). This is the exact
357     same syntax as os.system(), however, instead of being run in the liveCD
358     environment, it runs in the chroot. This requires a bit of fork() magic, so I
359     isolated the code. Hope to work more this week to get this class formed...

363     Added SAX parsing. Made GLI.InstallProfile a subclass of xml.sax.ContentHandler for
364     obvious reasons. Switched kernel_modules and users to be lists instead of tuples
365     to allow for easier modification (mutable, rather than immutable objects). Updated
366     existing pydoc and added more. Implemented body of GLI.InstallProfile.parse().
367     Cleaned file format of GLI.py a bit. Fixed all accessors to use self references.
368     Added initial unit test code.
