83 agaffney 458 Patch from zahna for extra arguments to the kernel. Patch from zahna to add
84 agaffney 460 get_eth_info() function. Remove most of content in amd64ArchTemplate and

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

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

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

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

177    
178 agaffney 357 7 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>

180    
181 codeman 345 1 Mar 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
182 codeman 346 Fixed a bunch of true -> True typos. lots of em

190    
191 agaffney 337 18 Feb 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>

204     added quickpkg to TODO list
205 codeman 319
206 codeman 318 5 Feb 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
207     Changed the raising of 'warning' exceptions to a simple log of the error
208     so that the installer can continue.
209    
210 codeman 314 3 Feb 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
211     Some big changes. First, changed most output to display_on_tty8.

240     the partitions :P
241    
242 agaffney 271 19 Jan 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
243 agaffney 272 Updated TODO. swapon failure it temporarily not an error. swapon is an error

246 agaffney 271
247 codeman 268 19 Jan 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>

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

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

297 codeman 222
298     07 Jan 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
299 codeman 219 Fixed a few more edit_configs. fixed a chroot multicommand bug thanks to agaffney.
300     Test Install ran very well (skipping partitioning).
301    
302 codeman 213 05 Jan 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
303 codeman 215 My mid-day update. rewrote mount_local_partitions for order of mounting. fixed prepare_chroot
304 codeman 216 rewrote configure_fstab and install_bootloader for new partition format. fixed a few _edit_configs.
305     some may still have eluded me.
306 codeman 215
307     05 Jan 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
308 codeman 213 Overhauled the entire ArchTemplate and did a lot of other misc fixes in order to test it.

310    
311 agaffney 212 05 Jan 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
312     Added get_num_sectors() to GLIStorageDevice.
313    
314     04 Jan 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
315 agaffney 205 GLIStorageDevice now tracks partition boundaries in sectors instead of cylinders.
316 agaffney 208 Also now ignores <=100 sectors for free space. Removed remaining depends stuff
317     from GLIInstallProfile.
318 agaffney 205
319 agaffney 188 20 Dec 2004; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
320     GLIStorageDevice returns "unknown" instead of "" for get_type()
321    
322 agaffney 183 19 Dec 2004; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
323 agaffney 184 Added get_extended_partition() to GLIStorageDevice. Rewrote get_logicals() to
324     actually work. Commented out resizability checking code for speed.
325 agaffney 183
326 agaffney 174 17 Dec 2004; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
327     Switched to using dumpe2fs to determine free space left in ext2/3 filesystem in
328     GLIStorageDevice at the suggestion of plors
329    
330 agaffney 162 10 Dec 2004; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
331     Added a function to GLIUtility to pull a value from a make.conf-style config
332 agaffney 163 file. Minor type fix to GLIInstallProfile.py
333 agaffney 162
334 agaffney 160 09 Dec 2004; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
335 agaffney 163 Added code in GLIArchitectureTemplate.py to write netmounts into fstab. Separated
336     network mounts from partition data structure in GLIInstallProfile
337 agaffney 161
338 agaffney 147 27 Nov 2004; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
339     Changed the way GLIStorageDevice.py determines the amount a ext2/3 filesystem
340     can be resized.
341    
342 codeman 91 27 Oct 2004; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
343     Added some of the final functions to GLIInstallTemplate.
344     Yes this project is still active despite rare use of the Changelog!
345    
346 npmccallum 58 11 Jun 2004; Nathaniel McCallum <npmccallum@gentoo.org>
347     Added the GLIPartitionTools.py file. This is a temporary insertion of
348     partitioning tools that will eventually go into their own package.
349    
350 npmccallum 33 27 Mar 2004; Nathaniel McCallum <npmccallum@gentoo.org>
351     Added InstallProfileTODO.txt. Added GLIClientConfiguration.py (contains run-time
352     for the program). Added __init__(install_profile, client_configuration) to
353     GLI.InstallProfile. This sets install_profile and client_configuration once so as
354     to avoid constantly passing stuff every time we call a method.

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

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

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

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