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

120     URIs. The blank uri check has been commented out.
121 codeman 426 ripped out error checking of set_services. this is done by _add_to_runlevel.
122 codeman 422
123 agaffney 419 25 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
124     set_stage_tarball_uri() doesn't raise an exception on a blank string.

137     spawn() call in livecd-kernel code to pass environment variables.
138 agaffney 414 livecd-kernel code pulls PKGDIR and PORTAGE_TMPDIR from make.conf info in
139     the install profile if available.
140 agaffney 402
141     23 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
142 agaffney 401 Added code to build_kernel() and emerge_kernel_sources() in ArchTemplate

150    
151     21 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>

153     instead of the bash way to avoid quote conflicts. Added
154 agaffney 392 'logfile=self._compile_logfile' to a number of spawn() calls. Added new
155 agaffney 394 hash_password() function to GLIUtility. Remove command to 'rm /tmp/spawn.sh'
156     as it breaks the piping.
157 codeman 390
158 codeman 387 20 Mar 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
159     Added the amd64ArchitectureTemplate, mostly a copy of x86 without lilo.
160    
161 agaffney 385 20 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>

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

175 agaffney 375
176     17 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
177 agaffney 374 Add 2>&1 to cmd in spawn()
178    
179 agaffney 369 16 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
180     Modified GLIUtility.exitsuccess() to work with return value from
181 agaffney 371 commands.getstatusoutput instead of os.waitpid(). spawn() automatically
182     creates wrapper script for commands run inside chroot so multiple commands
183 agaffney 373 and redirection can be used. Change exitsuccess() back. Added 'chmod a+x'
184     for the generated script from spawn()
185 agaffney 369
186 codeman 361 16 Mar 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
187     Removed default values for stage tarball URI and portage tree URI from
188     InstallProfile. These should be set by the FEs. also added services step to
189     ArchTemplate and coldplug/hotplug runlevels to the genkernel step.
190     Possibly fixed CC DHCP bug with -n. (thx agaffney)
191

194    
195 agaffney 357 7 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
196     Switched spawn() over to commands.getstatusoutput() instead of fork/waitpid
197    
198 codeman 345 1 Mar 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
199 codeman 346 Fixed a bunch of true -> True typos. lots of em

223 codeman 318 5 Feb 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
224     Changed the raising of 'warning' exceptions to a simple log of the error
225     so that the installer can continue.
226    
227 codeman 314 3 Feb 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>

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

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

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

277    
278 agaffney 255 15 Jan 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
279     Took out an unneeded step from CC's run()

292 agaffney 228 10 Jan 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
293     Fixed partition() in x86Template so that it scans through logicals and deletes
294 agaffney 229 before deleting containing extended partition. Also clears partition table to
295     be safe before third pass.
296 agaffney 228
297 codeman 226 08 Jan 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
298     Added mount_network_shares. not able to test it from this computer.
299     will test when i get back to school.
300     also added start_portmap to the client_controller as an always-do.
301     agaffney says this is needed for NFS mounts to work.
302    
303 agaffney 225 08 Jan 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
304     Partial rewrite of partitioning code in x86Template. No longer shells out to
305     parted to perform actions, now uses all pyparted calls. Code "works" in a
306     test, but still needs lots of TLC. Also modified tests/install.py to work
307     with x86Template and GLIClientConfiguration.
308    
309 agaffney 221 07 Jan 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>

315     07 Jan 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
316 codeman 219 Fixed a few more edit_configs. fixed a chroot multicommand bug thanks to agaffney.
317     Test Install ran very well (skipping partitioning).
318    
319 codeman 213 05 Jan 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
320 codeman 215 My mid-day update. rewrote mount_local_partitions for order of mounting. fixed prepare_chroot
321 codeman 216 rewrote configure_fstab and install_bootloader for new partition format. fixed a few _edit_configs.
322     some may still have eluded me.
323 codeman 215
324     05 Jan 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>

332 agaffney 205 GLIStorageDevice now tracks partition boundaries in sectors instead of cylinders.
333 agaffney 208 Also now ignores <=100 sectors for free space. Removed remaining depends stuff
334     from GLIInstallProfile.
335 agaffney 205
336 agaffney 188 20 Dec 2004; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>

339 agaffney 183 19 Dec 2004; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
340 agaffney 184 Added get_extended_partition() to GLIStorageDevice. Rewrote get_logicals() to
341     actually work. Commented out resizability checking code for speed.
342 agaffney 183
343 agaffney 174 17 Dec 2004; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
344     Switched to using dumpe2fs to determine free space left in ext2/3 filesystem in
345     GLIStorageDevice at the suggestion of plors
346    
347 agaffney 162 10 Dec 2004; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>

353     network mounts from partition data structure in GLIInstallProfile
354 agaffney 161
355 agaffney 147 27 Nov 2004; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
356     Changed the way GLIStorageDevice.py determines the amount a ext2/3 filesystem
357     can be resized.
358    
359 codeman 91 27 Oct 2004; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
360     Added some of the final functions to GLIInstallTemplate.
361     Yes this project is still active despite rare use of the Changelog!
362    
363 npmccallum 58 11 Jun 2004; Nathaniel McCallum <npmccallum@gentoo.org>
364     Added the GLIPartitionTools.py file. This is a temporary insertion of
365     partitioning tools that will eventually go into their own package.
366    
367 npmccallum 33 27 Mar 2004; Nathaniel McCallum <npmccallum@gentoo.org>
368     Added InstallProfileTODO.txt. Added GLIClientConfiguration.py (contains run-time
369     for the program). Added __init__(install_profile, client_configuration) to
370     GLI.InstallProfile. This sets install_profile and client_configuration once so as
371     to avoid constantly passing stuff every time we call a method.
372    
373 npmccallum 28 26 Mar 2004; Nathaniel McCallum <npmccallum@gentoo.org>
374    
375     Added another private method to GLI.InstallTemplate. _edit_config() modifies config
376     files without messing up all the other stuff in them. This will be used for making
377     changes to make.conf, rc.conf, /etc/conf.d/net, etc...
378    
379 npmccallum 27 25 Mar 2004; Nathaniel McCallum <npmccallum@gentoo.org>
380    
381     Added GLI.InstallTemplate framework. This is not yet functional. However, it does
382     have a few basic things. I added two private methods. One is _depends(). This
383     will be used for dependency checking (ie. unpacking a tarball requires that
384     partitioning has been done). The other is _exec_in_chroot(). This is the exact
385     same syntax as os.system(), however, instead of being run in the liveCD
386     environment, it runs in the chroot. This requires a bit of fork() magic, so I
387     isolated the code. Hope to work more this week to get this class formed...

390    
391     Added SAX parsing. Made GLI.InstallProfile a subclass of xml.sax.ContentHandler for
392     obvious reasons. Switched kernel_modules and users to be lists instead of tuples
393     to allow for easier modification (mutable, rather than immutable objects). Updated
394     existing pydoc and added more. Implemented body of GLI.InstallProfile.parse().
395     Cleaned file format of GLI.py a bit. Fixed all accessors to use self references.
396     Added initial unit test code.
397    
398 esammer 4 9 Feb 2004; Eric Sammer <esammer@gentoo.org>
399    
400     Added initial changelog. Setting up the basic structure of the CVS repository
401     for the project. Added the UML class diagram in docs. Added a skeletal GLI
402     python module. Added misc files such news, authors, etc.
