80     Remove /tmp/compile_output.log and /var/log/install.log when install is
81 agaffney 456 complete. Added code to (hopefully) keep 2nd thread running after install.
82 agaffney 458 Patch from zahna for extra arguments to the kernel. Patch from zahna to add
83 agaffney 460 get_eth_info() function. Remove most of content in amd64ArchTemplate and

89 agaffney 451
90 codeman 443 28 Mar 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
91 codeman 446 rewrote filesystem_tools. looks like it works so ripping out all the old
92     filesystem_tools code.
93 codeman 443
94 codeman 427 26 Mar 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
95     Changed the print statements to logging in the partitioning BE code.

101     changed InstallProfile to remove is_uri check on kernel, stage, and portage
102     URIs. The blank uri check has been commented out.
103 codeman 426 ripped out error checking of set_services. this is done by _add_to_runlevel.
104 codeman 422
105 agaffney 419 25 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
106     set_stage_tarball_uri() doesn't raise an exception on a blank string.
107    
108 agaffney 415 24 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
109     GRP-ish quickpkg code pulls PKGDIR and PORTAGE_TMPDIR from make.conf info in

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

116 agaffney 401 23 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
117 agaffney 408 minor fix (hopefully) to livecd-kernel code. Removed call to mkvardb in
118 agaffney 412 livecd-kernel code as it's now done by catalyst. Switch _emerge() call to
119     spawn() call in livecd-kernel code to pass environment variables.
120 agaffney 414 livecd-kernel code pulls PKGDIR and PORTAGE_TMPDIR from make.conf info in
121     the install profile if available.
122 agaffney 402
123     23 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
124 agaffney 401 Added code to build_kernel() and emerge_kernel_sources() in ArchTemplate
125     to handle installing the livecd kernel into the new system.
126    
127 codeman 395 22 Mar 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
128     should emerge hotplug and coldplug before adding them to runlevel.
129    
130 codeman 390 21 Mar 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
131 codeman 395 took chroot out of grub_install command.
132    
133     21 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
134     Changed chroot wrapper code in spawn() to write the wrapper the python way
135     instead of the bash way to avoid quote conflicts. Added
136 agaffney 392 'logfile=self._compile_logfile' to a number of spawn() calls. Added new
137 agaffney 394 hash_password() function to GLIUtility. Remove command to 'rm /tmp/spawn.sh'
138     as it breaks the piping.
139 codeman 390
140 codeman 387 20 Mar 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
141     Added the amd64ArchitectureTemplate, mostly a copy of x86 without lilo.
142    
143 agaffney 385 20 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
144     Added _get_packages_to_emerge() to GLIArchitectureTemplate and calls in

146 agaffney 389 GLIInstallProfile.
147 agaffney 385
148 agaffney 379 19 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
149 agaffney 384 Fixed a couple bugs in add_netmount() in GLIInstallProfile. spawn() outputs
150     to the actual tty8 with display_on_tty8 flag. Compile output logfile moved
151     into /mnt/gentoo in prepare_chroot()
152 agaffney 379
153 agaffney 375 18 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
154     Add sigunmask.c contributed by d_m (on freenode) to counteract python's

156     to start/end sectors
157 agaffney 375
158     17 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
159 agaffney 374 Add 2>&1 to cmd in spawn()
160    
161 agaffney 369 16 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
162     Modified GLIUtility.exitsuccess() to work with return value from
163 agaffney 371 commands.getstatusoutput instead of os.waitpid(). spawn() automatically
164     creates wrapper script for commands run inside chroot so multiple commands
165 agaffney 373 and redirection can be used. Change exitsuccess() back. Added 'chmod a+x'
166     for the generated script from spawn()
167 agaffney 369
168 codeman 361 16 Mar 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
169     Removed default values for stage tarball URI and portage tree URI from
170     InstallProfile. These should be set by the FEs. also added services step to
171     ArchTemplate and coldplug/hotplug runlevels to the genkernel step.
172     Possibly fixed CC DHCP bug with -n. (thx agaffney)
173    
174 codeman 359 14 Mar 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
175     Small fix for setting the default gateway. Also added feature to dialogfe.
176    
177 agaffney 357 7 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
178     Switched spawn() over to commands.getstatusoutput() instead of fork/waitpid
179    
180 codeman 345 1 Mar 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
181 codeman 346 Fixed a bunch of true -> True typos. lots of em

183 codeman 345
184 agaffney 343 1 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
185     Commented out 'display_on_tty8=True' in start_portmap()
186

189    
190 agaffney 337 18 Feb 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
191 agaffney 339 Created GLISayWhat module. Renamed GLISayWhat to GLILocalization. Moved

203     added quickpkg to TODO list
204 codeman 319
205 codeman 318 5 Feb 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
206     Changed the raising of 'warning' exceptions to a simple log of the error
207     so that the installer can continue.
208    
209 codeman 314 3 Feb 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
210     Some big changes. First, changed most output to display_on_tty8.
211     Second, added log lines to all templates. Some smaller fixes such as typos.
212     Also did some cleanups of old commented lines.
213    
214 agaffney 310 1 Feb 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>

220     of adding them.
221    
222 agaffney 301 29 Jan 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
223     Changed the way GLIStorageDevice.get_max_sectors_for_resize() works
224

232 codeman 286
233 codeman 281 22 Jan 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
234     changed default value of CC._enable_ssh to True because this is smart.

236 codeman 281
237 agaffney 278 21 Jan 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
238     partition() now waits until after it checks for partition flags before delete
239     the partitions :P
240    
241 agaffney 271 19 Jan 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
242 agaffney 272 Updated TODO. swapon failure it temporarily not an error. swapon is an error
243 agaffney 277 again. is_uri() check only performed on portage_tree_snapshot_uri if it isn't
244     blank.
245 agaffney 271
246 codeman 268 19 Jan 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>

249 codeman 268
250 agaffney 264 18 Jan 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
251     Added code to x86Template to format newly created partitions. Also added
252 agaffney 265 some error checking code. GLIStorageDevice passes 'minor' with data to
253 agaffney 266 InstallProfile. Added partition() call back in ArchTemplate. Fixed NFS
254     mounting code.
255 agaffney 264
256 codeman 263 18 Jan 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
257     Took out unnecessary setting of random livecd root password. the cd already
258     sets it randomly.
259    
260 agaffney 255 15 Jan 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
261     Took out an unneeded step from CC's run()
262

272     resizing ntfs and ext2/3.
273 agaffney 230
274 agaffney 228 10 Jan 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
275     Fixed partition() in x86Template so that it scans through logicals and deletes
276 agaffney 229 before deleting containing extended partition. Also clears partition table to
277     be safe before third pass.
278 agaffney 228
279 codeman 226 08 Jan 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
280     Added mount_network_shares. not able to test it from this computer.
281     will test when i get back to school.
282     also added start_portmap to the client_controller as an always-do.
283     agaffney says this is needed for NFS mounts to work.
284    
285 agaffney 225 08 Jan 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
286     Partial rewrite of partitioning code in x86Template. No longer shells out to
287     parted to perform actions, now uses all pyparted calls. Code "works" in a
288     test, but still needs lots of TLC. Also modified tests/install.py to work
289     with x86Template and GLIClientConfiguration.
290    
291 agaffney 221 07 Jan 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
292     Initial move of partitioning code from ArchTemplate to x86Template.

294 codeman 219 07 Jan 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
295 agaffney 224 Added grp_install and services to InstallProfile. forgot about the set_root_password
296 codeman 222
297     07 Jan 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
298 codeman 219 Fixed a few more edit_configs. fixed a chroot multicommand bug thanks to agaffney.
299     Test Install ran very well (skipping partitioning).
300    
301 codeman 213 05 Jan 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
302 codeman 215 My mid-day update. rewrote mount_local_partitions for order of mounting. fixed prepare_chroot
303 codeman 216 rewrote configure_fstab and install_bootloader for new partition format. fixed a few _edit_configs.
304     some may still have eluded me.
305 codeman 215
306     05 Jan 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
307 codeman 213 Overhauled the entire ArchTemplate and did a lot of other misc fixes in order to test it.
308     Just finished mount_local_partitions in GLIArchitectureTemplate
309    
310 agaffney 212 05 Jan 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
311     Added get_num_sectors() to GLIStorageDevice.
312    
313     04 Jan 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
314 agaffney 205 GLIStorageDevice now tracks partition boundaries in sectors instead of cylinders.
315 agaffney 208 Also now ignores <=100 sectors for free space. Removed remaining depends stuff
316     from GLIInstallProfile.
317 agaffney 205
318 agaffney 188 20 Dec 2004; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
319     GLIStorageDevice returns "unknown" instead of "" for get_type()
320    
321 agaffney 183 19 Dec 2004; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
322 agaffney 184 Added get_extended_partition() to GLIStorageDevice. Rewrote get_logicals() to
323     actually work. Commented out resizability checking code for speed.
324 agaffney 183
325 agaffney 174 17 Dec 2004; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
326     Switched to using dumpe2fs to determine free space left in ext2/3 filesystem in
327     GLIStorageDevice at the suggestion of plors
328    
329 agaffney 162 10 Dec 2004; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
330     Added a function to GLIUtility to pull a value from a make.conf-style config
331 agaffney 163 file. Minor type fix to GLIInstallProfile.py
332 agaffney 162
333 agaffney 160 09 Dec 2004; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
334 agaffney 163 Added code in GLIArchitectureTemplate.py to write netmounts into fstab. Separated
335     network mounts from partition data structure in GLIInstallProfile
336 agaffney 161
337 agaffney 147 27 Nov 2004; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
338     Changed the way GLIStorageDevice.py determines the amount a ext2/3 filesystem
339     can be resized.
340    
341 codeman 91 27 Oct 2004; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
342     Added some of the final functions to GLIInstallTemplate.
343     Yes this project is still active despite rare use of the Changelog!
344    
345 npmccallum 58 11 Jun 2004; Nathaniel McCallum <npmccallum@gentoo.org>
346     Added the GLIPartitionTools.py file. This is a temporary insertion of
347     partitioning tools that will eventually go into their own package.
348    
349 npmccallum 33 27 Mar 2004; Nathaniel McCallum <npmccallum@gentoo.org>
350     Added InstallProfileTODO.txt. Added GLIClientConfiguration.py (contains run-time
351     for the program). Added __init__(install_profile, client_configuration) to
352     GLI.InstallProfile. This sets install_profile and client_configuration once so as
353     to avoid constantly passing stuff every time we call a method.

357     Added another private method to GLI.InstallTemplate. _edit_config() modifies config
358     files without messing up all the other stuff in them. This will be used for making
359     changes to make.conf, rc.conf, /etc/conf.d/net, etc...

363     Added GLI.InstallTemplate framework. This is not yet functional. However, it does
364     have a few basic things. I added two private methods. One is _depends(). This
365     will be used for dependency checking (ie. unpacking a tarball requires that
366     partitioning has been done). The other is _exec_in_chroot(). This is the exact
367     same syntax as os.system(), however, instead of being run in the liveCD
368     environment, it runs in the chroot. This requires a bit of fork() magic, so I
369     isolated the code. Hope to work more this week to get this class formed...

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

381    
382     Added initial changelog. Setting up the basic structure of the CVS repository
383     for the project. Added the UML class diagram in docs. Added a skeletal GLI
384     python module. Added misc files such news, authors, etc.
