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

115     URIs. The blank uri check has been commented out.
116 codeman 426 ripped out error checking of set_services. this is done by _add_to_runlevel.
117 codeman 422
118 agaffney 419 25 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
119     set_stage_tarball_uri() doesn't raise an exception on a blank string.
120    
121 agaffney 415 24 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
122     GRP-ish quickpkg code pulls PKGDIR and PORTAGE_TMPDIR from make.conf info in

130 agaffney 408 minor fix (hopefully) to livecd-kernel code. Removed call to mkvardb in
131 agaffney 412 livecd-kernel code as it's now done by catalyst. Switch _emerge() call to
132     spawn() call in livecd-kernel code to pass environment variables.
133 agaffney 414 livecd-kernel code pulls PKGDIR and PORTAGE_TMPDIR from make.conf info in
134     the install profile if available.
135 agaffney 402
136     23 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
137 agaffney 401 Added code to build_kernel() and emerge_kernel_sources() in ArchTemplate

139    
140 codeman 395 22 Mar 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
141     should emerge hotplug and coldplug before adding them to runlevel.

143 codeman 390 21 Mar 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
144 codeman 395 took chroot out of grub_install command.
145    
146     21 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
147     Changed chroot wrapper code in spawn() to write the wrapper the python way
148     instead of the bash way to avoid quote conflicts. Added
149 agaffney 392 'logfile=self._compile_logfile' to a number of spawn() calls. Added new
150 agaffney 394 hash_password() function to GLIUtility. Remove command to 'rm /tmp/spawn.sh'
151     as it breaks the piping.
152 codeman 390
153 codeman 387 20 Mar 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
154     Added the amd64ArchitectureTemplate, mostly a copy of x86 without lilo.
155    
156 agaffney 385 20 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
157     Added _get_packages_to_emerge() to GLIArchitectureTemplate and calls in
158 agaffney 386 stage1() and stage2(). Added 'origminor' parameter to GLIStorageDevice and

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

169     to start/end sectors
170 agaffney 375
171     17 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
172 agaffney 374 Add 2>&1 to cmd in spawn()
173    
174 agaffney 369 16 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
175     Modified GLIUtility.exitsuccess() to work with return value from
176 agaffney 371 commands.getstatusoutput instead of os.waitpid(). spawn() automatically
177     creates wrapper script for commands run inside chroot so multiple commands
178 agaffney 373 and redirection can be used. Change exitsuccess() back. Added 'chmod a+x'
179     for the generated script from spawn()
180 agaffney 369
181 codeman 361 16 Mar 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
182     Removed default values for stage tarball URI and portage tree URI from
183     InstallProfile. These should be set by the FEs. also added services step to
184     ArchTemplate and coldplug/hotplug runlevels to the genkernel step.
185     Possibly fixed CC DHCP bug with -n. (thx agaffney)
186    
187 codeman 359 14 Mar 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
188     Small fix for setting the default gateway. Also added feature to dialogfe.
189    
190 agaffney 357 7 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
191     Switched spawn() over to commands.getstatusoutput() instead of fork/waitpid
192    
193 codeman 345 1 Mar 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
194 codeman 346 Fixed a bunch of true -> True typos. lots of em

196 codeman 345
197 agaffney 343 1 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
198     Commented out 'display_on_tty8=True' in start_portmap()

216     added quickpkg to TODO list
217 codeman 319
218 codeman 318 5 Feb 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
219     Changed the raising of 'warning' exceptions to a simple log of the error
220     so that the installer can continue.
221    
222 codeman 314 3 Feb 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
223     Some big changes. First, changed most output to display_on_tty8.

254 agaffney 271 19 Jan 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
255 agaffney 272 Updated TODO. swapon failure it temporarily not an error. swapon is an error

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

262 codeman 268
263 agaffney 264 18 Jan 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
264     Added code to x86Template to format newly created partitions. Also added
265 agaffney 265 some error checking code. GLIStorageDevice passes 'minor' with data to
266 agaffney 266 InstallProfile. Added partition() call back in ArchTemplate. Fixed NFS
267     mounting code.
268 agaffney 264
269 codeman 263 18 Jan 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
270     Took out unnecessary setting of random livecd root password. the cd already

272    
273 agaffney 255 15 Jan 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
274     Took out an unneeded step from CC's run()

286 agaffney 230
287 agaffney 228 10 Jan 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
288     Fixed partition() in x86Template so that it scans through logicals and deletes
289 agaffney 229 before deleting containing extended partition. Also clears partition table to
290     be safe before third pass.
291 agaffney 228
292 codeman 226 08 Jan 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
293     Added mount_network_shares. not able to test it from this computer.
294     will test when i get back to school.
295     also added start_portmap to the client_controller as an always-do.
296     agaffney says this is needed for NFS mounts to work.
297    
298 agaffney 225 08 Jan 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
299     Partial rewrite of partitioning code in x86Template. No longer shells out to
300     parted to perform actions, now uses all pyparted calls. Code "works" in a
301     test, but still needs lots of TLC. Also modified tests/install.py to work
302     with x86Template and GLIClientConfiguration.
303    
304 agaffney 221 07 Jan 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>

310     07 Jan 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
311 codeman 219 Fixed a few more edit_configs. fixed a chroot multicommand bug thanks to agaffney.
312     Test Install ran very well (skipping partitioning).
313    
314 codeman 213 05 Jan 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
315 codeman 215 My mid-day update. rewrote mount_local_partitions for order of mounting. fixed prepare_chroot
316 codeman 216 rewrote configure_fstab and install_bootloader for new partition format. fixed a few _edit_configs.
317     some may still have eluded me.
318 codeman 215
319     05 Jan 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>

325    
326     04 Jan 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
327 agaffney 205 GLIStorageDevice now tracks partition boundaries in sectors instead of cylinders.
328 agaffney 208 Also now ignores <=100 sectors for free space. Removed remaining depends stuff
329     from GLIInstallProfile.
330 agaffney 205
331 agaffney 188 20 Dec 2004; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>

334 agaffney 183 19 Dec 2004; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
335 agaffney 184 Added get_extended_partition() to GLIStorageDevice. Rewrote get_logicals() to
336     actually work. Commented out resizability checking code for speed.
337 agaffney 183
338 agaffney 174 17 Dec 2004; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
339     Switched to using dumpe2fs to determine free space left in ext2/3 filesystem in
340     GLIStorageDevice at the suggestion of plors
341    
342 agaffney 162 10 Dec 2004; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>

349 agaffney 161
350 agaffney 147 27 Nov 2004; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>

354 codeman 91 27 Oct 2004; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
355     Added some of the final functions to GLIInstallTemplate.
356     Yes this project is still active despite rare use of the Changelog!
357    
358 npmccallum 58 11 Jun 2004; Nathaniel McCallum <npmccallum@gentoo.org>
359     Added the GLIPartitionTools.py file. This is a temporary insertion of
360     partitioning tools that will eventually go into their own package.
361    
362 npmccallum 33 27 Mar 2004; Nathaniel McCallum <npmccallum@gentoo.org>
363     Added InstallProfileTODO.txt. Added GLIClientConfiguration.py (contains run-time
364     for the program). Added __init__(install_profile, client_configuration) to
365     GLI.InstallProfile. This sets install_profile and client_configuration once so as
366     to avoid constantly passing stuff every time we call a method.
367    
368 npmccallum 28 26 Mar 2004; Nathaniel McCallum <npmccallum@gentoo.org>
369    
370     Added another private method to GLI.InstallTemplate. _edit_config() modifies config
371     files without messing up all the other stuff in them. This will be used for making
372     changes to make.conf, rc.conf, /etc/conf.d/net, etc...
373    
374 npmccallum 27 25 Mar 2004; Nathaniel McCallum <npmccallum@gentoo.org>
375    
376     Added GLI.InstallTemplate framework. This is not yet functional. However, it does
377     have a few basic things. I added two private methods. One is _depends(). This
378     will be used for dependency checking (ie. unpacking a tarball requires that
379     partitioning has been done). The other is _exec_in_chroot(). This is the exact
380     same syntax as os.system(), however, instead of being run in the liveCD
381     environment, it runs in the chroot. This requires a bit of fork() magic, so I
382     isolated the code. Hope to work more this week to get this class formed...

385    
386     Added SAX parsing. Made GLI.InstallProfile a subclass of xml.sax.ContentHandler for
387     obvious reasons. Switched kernel_modules and users to be lists instead of tuples
388     to allow for easier modification (mutable, rather than immutable objects). Updated
389     existing pydoc and added more. Implemented body of GLI.InstallProfile.parse().
390     Cleaned file format of GLI.py a bit. Fixed all accessors to use self references.
391     Added initial unit test code.
392    
393 esammer 4 9 Feb 2004; Eric Sammer <esammer@gentoo.org>
394    
395     Added initial changelog. Setting up the basic structure of the CVS repository
396     for the project. Added the UML class diagram in docs. Added a skeletal GLI
397     python module. Added misc files such news, authors, etc.
