118 codeman 422
119 agaffney 419 25 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
120     set_stage_tarball_uri() doesn't raise an exception on a blank string.
121    
122 agaffney 415 24 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
123     GRP-ish quickpkg code pulls PKGDIR and PORTAGE_TMPDIR from make.conf info in

133     spawn() call in livecd-kernel code to pass environment variables.
134 agaffney 414 livecd-kernel code pulls PKGDIR and PORTAGE_TMPDIR from make.conf info in
135     the install profile if available.
136 agaffney 402
137     23 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
138 agaffney 401 Added code to build_kernel() and emerge_kernel_sources() in ArchTemplate

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

161 agaffney 385
162 agaffney 379 19 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
163 agaffney 384 Fixed a couple bugs in add_netmount() in GLIInstallProfile. spawn() outputs
164     to the actual tty8 with display_on_tty8 flag. Compile output logfile moved
165     into /mnt/gentoo in prepare_chroot()
166 agaffney 379
167 agaffney 375 18 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>

171 agaffney 375
172     17 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
173 agaffney 374 Add 2>&1 to cmd in spawn()
174    
175 agaffney 369 16 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
176     Modified GLIUtility.exitsuccess() to work with return value from
177 agaffney 371 commands.getstatusoutput instead of os.waitpid(). spawn() automatically
178     creates wrapper script for commands run inside chroot so multiple commands
179 agaffney 373 and redirection can be used. Change exitsuccess() back. Added 'chmod a+x'
180     for the generated script from spawn()
181 agaffney 369
182 codeman 361 16 Mar 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
183     Removed default values for stage tarball URI and portage tree URI from
184     InstallProfile. These should be set by the FEs. also added services step to
185     ArchTemplate and coldplug/hotplug runlevels to the genkernel step.
186     Possibly fixed CC DHCP bug with -n. (thx agaffney)
187

190    
191 agaffney 357 7 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
192     Switched spawn() over to commands.getstatusoutput() instead of fork/waitpid
193    
194 codeman 345 1 Mar 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
195 codeman 346 Fixed a bunch of true -> True typos. lots of em

197 codeman 345
198 agaffney 343 1 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>

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

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

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

267 agaffney 266 InstallProfile. Added partition() call back in ArchTemplate. Fixed NFS
268     mounting code.
269 agaffney 264
270 codeman 263 18 Jan 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>

288 agaffney 228 10 Jan 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
289     Fixed partition() in x86Template so that it scans through logicals and deletes
290 agaffney 229 before deleting containing extended partition. Also clears partition table to
291     be safe before third pass.
292 agaffney 228
293 codeman 226 08 Jan 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
294     Added mount_network_shares. not able to test it from this computer.
295     will test when i get back to school.

297     agaffney says this is needed for NFS mounts to work.
298    
299 agaffney 225 08 Jan 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
300     Partial rewrite of partitioning code in x86Template. No longer shells out to
301     parted to perform actions, now uses all pyparted calls. Code "works" in a
302     test, but still needs lots of TLC. Also modified tests/install.py to work
303     with x86Template and GLIClientConfiguration.
304    
305 agaffney 221 07 Jan 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>

311     07 Jan 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
312 codeman 219 Fixed a few more edit_configs. fixed a chroot multicommand bug thanks to agaffney.
313     Test Install ran very well (skipping partitioning).
314    
315 codeman 213 05 Jan 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
316 codeman 215 My mid-day update. rewrote mount_local_partitions for order of mounting. fixed prepare_chroot

318     some may still have eluded me.
319 codeman 215
320     05 Jan 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>

329 agaffney 208 Also now ignores <=100 sectors for free space. Removed remaining depends stuff
330     from GLIInstallProfile.
331 agaffney 205
332 agaffney 188 20 Dec 2004; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>

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

350 agaffney 161
351 agaffney 147 27 Nov 2004; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
352     Changed the way GLIStorageDevice.py determines the amount a ext2/3 filesystem
353     can be resized.

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

385 esammer 7 14 Feb 2004; Eric Sammer <esammer@gentoo.org>
386    
387     Added SAX parsing. Made GLI.InstallProfile a subclass of xml.sax.ContentHandler for
388     obvious reasons. Switched kernel_modules and users to be lists instead of tuples
389     to allow for easier modification (mutable, rather than immutable objects). Updated
390     existing pydoc and added more. Implemented body of GLI.InstallProfile.parse().
391     Cleaned file format of GLI.py a bit. Fixed all accessors to use self references.
392     Added initial unit test code.
393    
394 esammer 4 9 Feb 2004; Eric Sammer <esammer@gentoo.org>
395    
396     Added initial changelog. Setting up the basic structure of the CVS repository
397     for the project. Added the UML class diagram in docs. Added a skeletal GLI
398     python module. Added misc files such news, authors, etc.
