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

109     URIs. The blank uri check has been commented out.
110 codeman 426 ripped out error checking of set_services. this is done by _add_to_runlevel.
111 codeman 422
112 agaffney 419 25 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
113     set_stage_tarball_uri() doesn't raise an exception on a blank string.
114    
115 agaffney 415 24 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
116     GRP-ish quickpkg code pulls PKGDIR and PORTAGE_TMPDIR from make.conf info in

124 agaffney 408 minor fix (hopefully) to livecd-kernel code. Removed call to mkvardb in
125 agaffney 412 livecd-kernel code as it's now done by catalyst. Switch _emerge() call to
126     spawn() call in livecd-kernel code to pass environment variables.
127 agaffney 414 livecd-kernel code pulls PKGDIR and PORTAGE_TMPDIR from make.conf info in
128     the install profile if available.
129 agaffney 402
130     23 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
131 agaffney 401 Added code to build_kernel() and emerge_kernel_sources() in ArchTemplate
132     to handle installing the livecd kernel into the new system.
133    
134 codeman 395 22 Mar 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
135     should emerge hotplug and coldplug before adding them to runlevel.
136    
137 codeman 390 21 Mar 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
138 codeman 395 took chroot out of grub_install command.
139    
140     21 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
141     Changed chroot wrapper code in spawn() to write the wrapper the python way
142     instead of the bash way to avoid quote conflicts. Added
143 agaffney 392 'logfile=self._compile_logfile' to a number of spawn() calls. Added new
144 agaffney 394 hash_password() function to GLIUtility. Remove command to 'rm /tmp/spawn.sh'
145     as it breaks the piping.
146 codeman 390
147 codeman 387 20 Mar 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
148     Added the amd64ArchitectureTemplate, mostly a copy of x86 without lilo.
149    
150 agaffney 385 20 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
151     Added _get_packages_to_emerge() to GLIArchitectureTemplate and calls in

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

163     to start/end sectors
164 agaffney 375
165     17 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
166 agaffney 374 Add 2>&1 to cmd in spawn()
167    
168 agaffney 369 16 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
169     Modified GLIUtility.exitsuccess() to work with return value from
170 agaffney 371 commands.getstatusoutput instead of os.waitpid(). spawn() automatically
171     creates wrapper script for commands run inside chroot so multiple commands
172 agaffney 373 and redirection can be used. Change exitsuccess() back. Added 'chmod a+x'
173     for the generated script from spawn()
174 agaffney 369
175 codeman 361 16 Mar 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
176     Removed default values for stage tarball URI and portage tree URI from
177     InstallProfile. These should be set by the FEs. also added services step to
178     ArchTemplate and coldplug/hotplug runlevels to the genkernel step.
179     Possibly fixed CC DHCP bug with -n. (thx agaffney)
180    
181 codeman 359 14 Mar 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
182     Small fix for setting the default gateway. Also added feature to dialogfe.
183    
184 agaffney 357 7 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
185     Switched spawn() over to commands.getstatusoutput() instead of fork/waitpid
186    
187 codeman 345 1 Mar 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
188 codeman 346 Fixed a bunch of true -> True typos. lots of em

210     added quickpkg to TODO list
211 codeman 319
212 codeman 318 5 Feb 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
213     Changed the raising of 'warning' exceptions to a simple log of the error
214     so that the installer can continue.
215    
216 codeman 314 3 Feb 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
217     Some big changes. First, changed most output to display_on_tty8.
218     Second, added log lines to all templates. Some smaller fixes such as typos.
219     Also did some cleanups of old commented lines.

246     the partitions :P
247    
248 agaffney 271 19 Jan 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
249 agaffney 272 Updated TODO. swapon failure it temporarily not an error. swapon is an error

251     blank.
252 agaffney 271
253 codeman 268 19 Jan 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>

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

280 agaffney 230
281 agaffney 228 10 Jan 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
282     Fixed partition() in x86Template so that it scans through logicals and deletes
283 agaffney 229 before deleting containing extended partition. Also clears partition table to
284     be safe before third pass.
285 agaffney 228
286 codeman 226 08 Jan 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
287     Added mount_network_shares. not able to test it from this computer.
288     will test when i get back to school.
289     also added start_portmap to the client_controller as an always-do.
290     agaffney says this is needed for NFS mounts to work.
291    
292 agaffney 225 08 Jan 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
293     Partial rewrite of partitioning code in x86Template. No longer shells out to
294     parted to perform actions, now uses all pyparted calls. Code "works" in a
295     test, but still needs lots of TLC. Also modified tests/install.py to work
296     with x86Template and GLIClientConfiguration.
297    
298 agaffney 221 07 Jan 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>

303 codeman 222
304     07 Jan 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
305 codeman 219 Fixed a few more edit_configs. fixed a chroot multicommand bug thanks to agaffney.
306     Test Install ran very well (skipping partitioning).
307    
308 codeman 213 05 Jan 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
309 codeman 215 My mid-day update. rewrote mount_local_partitions for order of mounting. fixed prepare_chroot
310 codeman 216 rewrote configure_fstab and install_bootloader for new partition format. fixed a few _edit_configs.
311     some may still have eluded me.
312 codeman 215
313     05 Jan 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>

321 agaffney 205 GLIStorageDevice now tracks partition boundaries in sectors instead of cylinders.
322 agaffney 208 Also now ignores <=100 sectors for free space. Removed remaining depends stuff
323     from GLIInstallProfile.
324 agaffney 205
325 agaffney 188 20 Dec 2004; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>

328 agaffney 183 19 Dec 2004; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
329 agaffney 184 Added get_extended_partition() to GLIStorageDevice. Rewrote get_logicals() to
330     actually work. Commented out resizability checking code for speed.
331 agaffney 183
332 agaffney 174 17 Dec 2004; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
333     Switched to using dumpe2fs to determine free space left in ext2/3 filesystem in
334     GLIStorageDevice at the suggestion of plors
335    
336 agaffney 162 10 Dec 2004; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>

343 agaffney 161
344 agaffney 147 27 Nov 2004; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>

347    
348 codeman 91 27 Oct 2004; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
349     Added some of the final functions to GLIInstallTemplate.

351    
352 npmccallum 58 11 Jun 2004; Nathaniel McCallum <npmccallum@gentoo.org>

354     partitioning tools that will eventually go into their own package.

356 npmccallum 33 27 Mar 2004; Nathaniel McCallum <npmccallum@gentoo.org>
357     Added InstallProfileTODO.txt. Added GLIClientConfiguration.py (contains run-time
358     for the program). Added __init__(install_profile, client_configuration) to
359     GLI.InstallProfile. This sets install_profile and client_configuration once so as
360     to avoid constantly passing stuff every time we call a method.
361    
362 npmccallum 28 26 Mar 2004; Nathaniel McCallum <npmccallum@gentoo.org>
363    
364     Added another private method to GLI.InstallTemplate. _edit_config() modifies config
365     files without messing up all the other stuff in them. This will be used for making
366     changes to make.conf, rc.conf, /etc/conf.d/net, etc...
367

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

379    
380     Added SAX parsing. Made GLI.InstallProfile a subclass of xml.sax.ContentHandler for
381     obvious reasons. Switched kernel_modules and users to be lists instead of tuples
382     to allow for easier modification (mutable, rather than immutable objects). Updated
383     existing pydoc and added more. Implemented body of GLI.InstallProfile.parse().
384     Cleaned file format of GLI.py a bit. Fixed all accessors to use self references.
385     Added initial unit test code.
386    
387 esammer 4 9 Feb 2004; Eric Sammer <esammer@gentoo.org>
388    
389     Added initial changelog. Setting up the basic structure of the CVS repository
390     for the project. Added the UML class diagram in docs. Added a skeletal GLI
391     python module. Added misc files such news, authors, etc.
