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

125 codeman 422
126 agaffney 419 25 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
127     set_stage_tarball_uri() doesn't raise an exception on a blank string.

140     spawn() call in livecd-kernel code to pass environment variables.
141 agaffney 414 livecd-kernel code pulls PKGDIR and PORTAGE_TMPDIR from make.conf info in
142     the install profile if available.
143 agaffney 402
144     23 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
145 agaffney 401 Added code to build_kernel() and emerge_kernel_sources() in ArchTemplate

152 codeman 395 took chroot out of grub_install command.
153    
154     21 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
155     Changed chroot wrapper code in spawn() to write the wrapper the python way
156     instead of the bash way to avoid quote conflicts. Added
157 agaffney 392 'logfile=self._compile_logfile' to a number of spawn() calls. Added new
158 agaffney 394 hash_password() function to GLIUtility. Remove command to 'rm /tmp/spawn.sh'
159     as it breaks the piping.
160 codeman 390
161 codeman 387 20 Mar 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
162     Added the amd64ArchitectureTemplate, mostly a copy of x86 without lilo.
163    
164 agaffney 385 20 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>

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

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

198 agaffney 357 7 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
199     Switched spawn() over to commands.getstatusoutput() instead of fork/waitpid
200    
201 codeman 345 1 Mar 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
202 codeman 346 Fixed a bunch of true -> True typos. lots of em

228     so that the installer can continue.
229

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

274 agaffney 266 InstallProfile. Added partition() call back in ArchTemplate. Fixed NFS
275     mounting code.
276 agaffney 264
277 codeman 263 18 Jan 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>

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

304     agaffney says this is needed for NFS mounts to work.
305    
306 agaffney 225 08 Jan 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
307     Partial rewrite of partitioning code in x86Template. No longer shells out to
308     parted to perform actions, now uses all pyparted calls. Code "works" in a
309     test, but still needs lots of TLC. Also modified tests/install.py to work
310     with x86Template and GLIClientConfiguration.
311    
312 agaffney 221 07 Jan 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>

318     07 Jan 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
319 codeman 219 Fixed a few more edit_configs. fixed a chroot multicommand bug thanks to agaffney.
320     Test Install ran very well (skipping partitioning).
321    
322 codeman 213 05 Jan 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
323 codeman 215 My mid-day update. rewrote mount_local_partitions for order of mounting. fixed prepare_chroot
324 codeman 216 rewrote configure_fstab and install_bootloader for new partition format. fixed a few _edit_configs.
325     some may still have eluded me.
326 codeman 215
327     05 Jan 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>

336 agaffney 208 Also now ignores <=100 sectors for free space. Removed remaining depends stuff
337     from GLIInstallProfile.
338 agaffney 205
339 agaffney 188 20 Dec 2004; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>

342 agaffney 183 19 Dec 2004; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
343 agaffney 184 Added get_extended_partition() to GLIStorageDevice. Rewrote get_logicals() to
344     actually work. Commented out resizability checking code for speed.
345 agaffney 183
346 agaffney 174 17 Dec 2004; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
347     Switched to using dumpe2fs to determine free space left in ext2/3 filesystem in
348     GLIStorageDevice at the suggestion of plors
349    
350 agaffney 162 10 Dec 2004; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
351     Added a function to GLIUtility to pull a value from a make.conf-style config

353 agaffney 162
354 agaffney 160 09 Dec 2004; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
355 agaffney 163 Added code in GLIArchitectureTemplate.py to write netmounts into fstab. Separated
356     network mounts from partition data structure in GLIInstallProfile
357 agaffney 161
358 agaffney 147 27 Nov 2004; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
359     Changed the way GLIStorageDevice.py determines the amount a ext2/3 filesystem
360     can be resized.
361    
362 codeman 91 27 Oct 2004; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
363     Added some of the final functions to GLIInstallTemplate.
364     Yes this project is still active despite rare use of the Changelog!
365    
366 npmccallum 58 11 Jun 2004; Nathaniel McCallum <npmccallum@gentoo.org>
367     Added the GLIPartitionTools.py file. This is a temporary insertion of
368     partitioning tools that will eventually go into their own package.
369    
370 npmccallum 33 27 Mar 2004; Nathaniel McCallum <npmccallum@gentoo.org>
371     Added InstallProfileTODO.txt. Added GLIClientConfiguration.py (contains run-time
372     for the program). Added __init__(install_profile, client_configuration) to
373     GLI.InstallProfile. This sets install_profile and client_configuration once so as
374     to avoid constantly passing stuff every time we call a method.
375    
376 npmccallum 28 26 Mar 2004; Nathaniel McCallum <npmccallum@gentoo.org>
377    
378     Added another private method to GLI.InstallTemplate. _edit_config() modifies config
379     files without messing up all the other stuff in them. This will be used for making
380     changes to make.conf, rc.conf, /etc/conf.d/net, etc...
381    
382 npmccallum 27 25 Mar 2004; Nathaniel McCallum <npmccallum@gentoo.org>
383    
384     Added GLI.InstallTemplate framework. This is not yet functional. However, it does
385     have a few basic things. I added two private methods. One is _depends(). This
386     will be used for dependency checking (ie. unpacking a tarball requires that
387     partitioning has been done). The other is _exec_in_chroot(). This is the exact
388     same syntax as os.system(), however, instead of being run in the liveCD
389     environment, it runs in the chroot. This requires a bit of fork() magic, so I
390     isolated the code. Hope to work more this week to get this class formed...

393    
394     Added SAX parsing. Made GLI.InstallProfile a subclass of xml.sax.ContentHandler for
395     obvious reasons. Switched kernel_modules and users to be lists instead of tuples
396     to allow for easier modification (mutable, rather than immutable objects). Updated
397     existing pydoc and added more. Implemented body of GLI.InstallProfile.parse().
398     Cleaned file format of GLI.py a bit. Fixed all accessors to use self references.
399     Added initial unit test code.

401 esammer 4 9 Feb 2004; Eric Sammer <esammer@gentoo.org>
402    
403     Added initial changelog. Setting up the basic structure of the CVS repository
404     for the project. Added the UML class diagram in docs. Added a skeletal GLI
405     python module. Added misc files such news, authors, etc.
