493 28 Jun 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
494 finished almost all internationalization of GenDialog.
495 attempt at fixing rc.conf function. moved 3 generate functions out of
496 fe/gtk/RcDotConf and put them in Utility. fixed self bug.
497 added dialog.py to the fe/dialog directory so it actually gets used.
498
499 27 Jun 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
500 Roll rc_conf and make_conf into master etc_files structure in InstallProfile.

524 instead of int() in add_partition_device_partition() for minor (closes 96804)
525
526 21 Jun 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
527 Changed setup_network_post to check for 'interfaces[interface][0] != "dhcp"'
528 instead of 'interfaces[interface][1]' since DHCP uses that field for its
529 options. setup_network_post() writes custom DHCP options to /etc/conf.d/net.
530
531 20 Jun 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
532 Apply spawn() patch from #96644 (with minor changes). Make sure the return

546
547 16 Jun 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
548 Backend partitioning will create disklabel is none exists. Installprofile
549 defaults to "" now instead of "msdos" for disklabel type. Fix for
550 mount_local_partitions() to remember device along with minor in the
551 parts_to_mount dict (closes #96319). mount_local_partitions() cleanups and
552 add else block to log unsupported netmount types to mount_network_shares()

564 2.4 support (pull version data from /usr/src/linux/Makefile), incl.
565 'make dep' call for custom compile. build_mode support for prepare-only and
566 none types completed. custom compile function chains shell functions in
567 spawned script, to allow for catching all errors.
568
569 15 Jun 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
570 fixed up build_kernel in ArchTemplate for build_mode as well as in dialogfe

572
573 14 Jun 2005; Robin H. Johnson <robbat2@gentoo.org>
574 src/GLIInstallProfile.py:
575 Change structure of etc-portage stuff. The serialization was broken before my
576 last commit, and I am the only person that's ever used it. The new schema is
577 as follows:
578 <etc-portage>
579 <file name="package.mask"/>
580 <file name="package.unmask">
581 <entry atom="sys-kernel/openmosix-sources"/>
582 </file>
583 <file name="package.use">
584 <entry atom="sys-libs/db">
585 -java

594 13 Jun 2005; Robin H. Johnson <robbat2@gentoo.org>
595 src/GLIInstallProfile.py:
596 Add new entry for gli-profile/kernel-build-method item. Add missing
597 serialize_etc_portage (temporary). Make serialize_make_conf always print the
598 keys in the same order.

600 13 Jun 2005; Robin H. Johnson <robbat2@gentoo.org>
601 src/GLIArchitectureTemplate.py:
602 Clean up commenting used by _edit_config(), and fix bug where wrong comment
603 was repeatedly appended to make.conf.
604
605 13 Jun 2005; Robin H. Johnson <robbat2@gentoo.org>
606 src/GLIArchitectureTemplate.py:
607 Put some Linux-2.6 specific code under a if statement. Store list of
608 successfully mounted swap device for using swapoff. Add proper error checking
609 to install_packages and install_filesystem_tools. Fixed namespace conflicts on
610 'file'. Clean up some redundant code (thanks to pychecker).'
611
612 13 Jun 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
613 Fix typos: get_extended() instead of get_extended_partition(). Added
614 list_mirrors() and list_stage_tarballs_from_mirror() functions to GLIUtility.

616
617 12 Jun 2005; John N. Laliberte <allanonjl@gentoo.org>
618 GLIInstallProfile.py: add missing set for dhcp_options if a tuple is passed
619 in add_network_interface.
620
621 12 Jun 2005; Robin H. Johnson <robbat2@gentoo.org> src/GLIArchitectureTemplate.py:
622 ensure PORTAGE_TMPDIR/PORT_LOGDIR/PORTDIR_OVERLAY/PKGDIR exist prior to any
623 usage - this caused a failure for stage1/stage2 previously. swapoff for swap
624 space at end of install. Mount /dev, /dev/shm, /dev/pts and /sys during
625 prepare_chroot.
626
627 11 Jun 2005; Robin H. Johnson <robbat2@gentoo.org> +src/cli/clife.py,

639 src/GLIArchitectureTemplate.py:
640 pcmcia is not a variable name for a call to _add_to_runlevel, it should be a
641 string!. Try to use binary packages if available by default.
642
643 11 Jun 2005; Robin H. Johnson <robbat2@gentoo.org>
644 src/GLIArchitectureTemplate.py:
645 More error checking for _add_to_runlevel, to ensure that the init script
646 actually exists before we try to add it. set_services phase must take place
647 after the package installation, otherwise the init scripts might not exist.
648 Find the correct init script for the cron and logging daemons, and add that
649 instead of the package atom.
650
651 11 Jun 2005; Robin H. Johnson <robbat2@gentoo.org>
652 src/GLIArchitectureTemplate.py:
653 Fix up _edit_config so that it works if the file doesn't already exist. Fix

655 __builtin__.file.
656
657 11 Jun 2005; Robin H. Johnson <robbat2@gentoo.org>
658 src/GLIArchitectureTemplate.py:
659 Add MTA install code, and include MTA install phase. Ensure

682
683 11 Jun 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
684 Move /tmp/spawn.sh and /tmp/post-install to /var/tmp since that should always
685 be executable.
686
687 10 Jun 2005; Scott Myron <samyron@gentoo.org>
688 Fixed one of the FIXME's in the ClientConfiguration. There is now some
689 error checking when you call set_architecture_template.
690
691 10 Jun 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
692 moved the mkfsopts input to the partition options menu instead of the during
693 the creation process. updated GenDialog to say it supports reiserfs v3.
694

918
919 28 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
920 Added 'append_log=True' to all spawn() calls using logfile=. Append to log
921 when unpacking tarball.
922
923 28 Mar 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
924 rewrote filesystem_tools. looks like it works so ripping out all the old
925 filesystem_tools code.
926
927 26 Mar 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
928 Changed the print statements to logging in the partitioning BE code.
929 the logger may need to be imported to the x86archtemplate. unknown yet.
930 Added the finishing_cleanup function.
931 added a fix to the logger from BenUrban
932
933 25 Mar 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
934 changed InstallProfile to remove is_uri check on kernel, stage, and portage
935 URIs. The blank uri check has been commented out.
936 ripped out error checking of set_services. this is done by _add_to_runlevel.
937
938 25 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
939 set_stage_tarball_uri() doesn't raise an exception on a blank string.
940
941 24 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
942 GRP-ish quickpkg code pulls PKGDIR and PORTAGE_TMPDIR from make.conf info in
943 the install profile if available. Commented out spawn() debugging prints
944
945 23 Mar 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
946 small changes to setup_network_post. moved adding to runlevel of net.x to
947 after the device gets symlinked. added domainname runlevel command.
948
949 23 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
950 minor fix (hopefully) to livecd-kernel code. Removed call to mkvardb in
951 livecd-kernel code as it's now done by catalyst. Switch _emerge() call to
952 spawn() call in livecd-kernel code to pass environment variables.
953 livecd-kernel code pulls PKGDIR and PORTAGE_TMPDIR from make.conf info in
954 the install profile if available.
955
956 23 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
957 Added code to build_kernel() and emerge_kernel_sources() in ArchTemplate
958 to handle installing the livecd kernel into the new system.
959
960 22 Mar 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
961 should emerge hotplug and coldplug before adding them to runlevel.
962
963 21 Mar 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
964 took chroot out of grub_install command.
965
966 21 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
967 Changed chroot wrapper code in spawn() to write the wrapper the python way
968 instead of the bash way to avoid quote conflicts. Added
969 'logfile=self._compile_logfile' to a number of spawn() calls. Added new
970 hash_password() function to GLIUtility. Remove command to 'rm /tmp/spawn.sh'
971 as it breaks the piping.
972
973 20 Mar 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
974 Added the amd64ArchitectureTemplate, mostly a copy of x86 without lilo.
975
976 20 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
977 Added _get_packages_to_emerge() to GLIArchitectureTemplate and calls in
978 stage1() and stage2(). Added 'origminor' parameter to GLIStorageDevice and
979 GLIInstallProfile.
980
981 19 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
982 Fixed a couple bugs in add_netmount() in GLIInstallProfile. spawn() outputs
983 to the actual tty8 with display_on_tty8 flag. Compile output logfile moved
984 into /mnt/gentoo in prepare_chroot()
985
986 18 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
987 Add sigunmask.c contributed by d_m (on freenode) to counteract python's
988 retarted behavior regarding threads and signals. Add code to convert MB/%/*
989 to start/end sectors
990
991 17 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
992 Add 2>&1 to cmd in spawn()
993
994 16 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
995 Modified GLIUtility.exitsuccess() to work with return value from
996 commands.getstatusoutput instead of os.waitpid(). spawn() automatically
997 creates wrapper script for commands run inside chroot so multiple commands
998 and redirection can be used. Change exitsuccess() back. Added 'chmod a+x'
999 for the generated script from spawn()
1000
1001 16 Mar 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
1002 Removed default values for stage tarball URI and portage tree URI from
1003 InstallProfile. These should be set by the FEs. also added services step to
1004 ArchTemplate and coldplug/hotplug runlevels to the genkernel step.
1005 Possibly fixed CC DHCP bug with -n. (thx agaffney)
1006
1007 14 Mar 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
1008 Small fix for setting the default gateway. Also added feature to dialogfe.
1009
1010 7 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
1011 Switched spawn() over to commands.getstatusoutput() instead of fork/waitpid
1012
1013 1 Mar 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
1014 Fixed a bunch of true -> True typos. lots of em
1015 only write new resolv.conf if there are dns servers listed.
1016
1017 1 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
1018 Commented out 'display_on_tty8=True' in start_portmap()
1019
1020 18 Feb 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
1021 added progress bar to dialogfe and fix logger bug in ArchTemplate.
1022
1023 18 Feb 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
1024 Created GLISayWhat module. Renamed GLISayWhat to GLILocalization. Moved
1025 lang parameter to __init__()
1026
1027 10 Feb 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
1028 updates to TODO list.
1029
1030 6 Feb 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
1031 Initial code for quickpkg GRP support. Fix loop to grab packages from
1032 'emerge -p blah'
1033
1034 6 Feb 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
1035 check for dhcp in the network stuff and emerge it if it is.
1036 added quickpkg to TODO list
1037
1038 5 Feb 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
1039 Changed the raising of 'warning' exceptions to a simple log of the error
1040 so that the installer can continue.
1041
1042 3 Feb 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
1043 Some big changes. First, changed most output to display_on_tty8.
1044 Second, added log lines to all templates. Some smaller fixes such as typos.
1045 Also did some cleanups of old commented lines.
1046
1047 1 Feb 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
1048 Changed tty8 output to a fifo. Minor GLIStorageDevice fix thanks to BenUrban.
1049 Undo change with fix. Escaping fix in GLIStorageDevice.py
1050
1051 31 Jan 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
1052 more updates to TODO list. hopefully we'll soon start removing items instead
1053 of adding them.
1054
1055 29 Jan 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
1056 Changed the way GLIStorageDevice.get_max_sectors_for_resize() works
1057
1058 27 Jan 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
1059 updated TODO list. (again)
1060
1061 25 Jan 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
1062 changed output of portmap start to display_on_tty8.
1063 fixed bootloader for udev and multiple kernels
1064 fixed custom kernel config (again)
1065
1066 22 Jan 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
1067 changed default value of CC._enable_ssh to True because this is smart.
1068 added code to allow custom kernel .config. may be unstable and break. sorry.
1069
1070 21 Jan 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
1071 partition() now waits until after it checks for partition flags before delete
1072 the partitions :P
1073
1074 19 Jan 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
1075 Updated TODO. swapon failure it temporarily not an error. swapon is an error
1076 again. is_uri() check only performed on portage_tree_snapshot_uri if it isn't
1077 blank.
1078
1079 19 Jan 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
1080 Various fixes related to the add_users function. Still not yet finished.
1081 Added things to the TODO list. Lets start using that!
1082
1083 18 Jan 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
1084 Added code to x86Template to format newly created partitions. Also added
1085 some error checking code. GLIStorageDevice passes 'minor' with data to
1086 InstallProfile. Added partition() call back in ArchTemplate. Fixed NFS
1087 mounting code.
1088
1089 18 Jan 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
1090 Took out unnecessary setting of random livecd root password. the cd already
1091 sets it randomly.
1092
1093 15 Jan 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
1094 Took out an unneeded step from CC's run()
1095
1096 15 Jan 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
1097 Attempt at detecting and adding windows partitions to lilo.
1098
1099 14 Jan 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
1100 Added lilo code and cleaned up lilo code. also do_partitioning renamed to
1101 partition. fixed misc exit_status => exitstatus typo.
1102
1103 11 Jan 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
1104 Added basic code for resizing filesystems with pyparted. Fixed code for
1105 resizing ntfs and ext2/3.
1106
1107 10 Jan 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
1108 Fixed partition() in x86Template so that it scans through logicals and deletes
1109 before deleting containing extended partition. Also clears partition table to
1110 be safe before third pass.
1111
1112 08 Jan 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
1113 Added mount_network_shares. not able to test it from this computer.
1114 will test when i get back to school.
1115 also added start_portmap to the client_controller as an always-do.
1116 agaffney says this is needed for NFS mounts to work.
1117
1118 08 Jan 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
1119 Partial rewrite of partitioning code in x86Template. No longer shells out to
1120 parted to perform actions, now uses all pyparted calls. Code "works" in a
1121 test, but still needs lots of TLC. Also modified tests/install.py to work
1122 with x86Template and GLIClientConfiguration.
1123
1124 07 Jan 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
1125 Initial move of partitioning code from ArchTemplate to x86Template.
1126
1127 07 Jan 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
1128 Added grp_install and services to InstallProfile. forgot about the set_root_password
1129
1130 07 Jan 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
1131 Fixed a few more edit_configs. fixed a chroot multicommand bug thanks to agaffney.
1132 Test Install ran very well (skipping partitioning).
1133
1134 05 Jan 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
1135 My mid-day update. rewrote mount_local_partitions for order of mounting. fixed prepare_chroot
1136 rewrote configure_fstab and install_bootloader for new partition format. fixed a few _edit_configs.
1137 some may still have eluded me.
1138
1139 05 Jan 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
1140 Overhauled the entire ArchTemplate and did a lot of other misc fixes in order to test it.
1141 Just finished mount_local_partitions in GLIArchitectureTemplate
1142
1143 05 Jan 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
1144 Added get_num_sectors() to GLIStorageDevice.
1145
1146 04 Jan 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
1147 GLIStorageDevice now tracks partition boundaries in sectors instead of cylinders.
1148 Also now ignores <=100 sectors for free space. Removed remaining depends stuff
1149 from GLIInstallProfile.
1150
1151 20 Dec 2004; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
1152 GLIStorageDevice returns "unknown" instead of "" for get_type()
1153
1154 19 Dec 2004; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
1155 Added get_extended_partition() to GLIStorageDevice. Rewrote get_logicals() to
1156 actually work. Commented out resizability checking code for speed.
1157
1158 17 Dec 2004; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
1159 Switched to using dumpe2fs to determine free space left in ext2/3 filesystem in
1160 GLIStorageDevice at the suggestion of plors
1161
1162 10 Dec 2004; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
1163 Added a function to GLIUtility to pull a value from a make.conf-style config
1164 file. Minor type fix to GLIInstallProfile.py
1165
1166 09 Dec 2004; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
1167 Added code in GLIArchitectureTemplate.py to write netmounts into fstab. Separated
1168 network mounts from partition data structure in GLIInstallProfile
1169
1170 27 Nov 2004; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
1171 Changed the way GLIStorageDevice.py determines the amount a ext2/3 filesystem
1172 can be resized.
1173
1174 27 Oct 2004; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
1175 Added some of the final functions to GLIInstallTemplate.
1176 Yes this project is still active despite rare use of the Changelog!
1177
1178 11 Jun 2004; Nathaniel McCallum <npmccallum@gentoo.org>
1179 Added the GLIPartitionTools.py file. This is a temporary insertion of
1180 partitioning tools that will eventually go into their own package.
1181
1182 27 Mar 2004; Nathaniel McCallum <npmccallum@gentoo.org>
1183 Added InstallProfileTODO.txt. Added GLIClientConfiguration.py (contains run-time
1184 for the program). Added __init__(install_profile, client_configuration) to
1185 GLI.InstallProfile. This sets install_profile and client_configuration once so as
1186 to avoid constantly passing stuff every time we call a method.
1187
1188 26 Mar 2004; Nathaniel McCallum <npmccallum@gentoo.org>
1189
1190 Added another private method to GLI.InstallTemplate. _edit_config() modifies config
1191 files without messing up all the other stuff in them. This will be used for making
1192 changes to make.conf, rc.conf, /etc/conf.d/net, etc...
1193
1194 25 Mar 2004; Nathaniel McCallum <npmccallum@gentoo.org>
1195
1196 Added GLI.InstallTemplate framework. This is not yet functional. However, it does
1197 have a few basic things. I added two private methods. One is _depends(). This
1198 will be used for dependency checking (ie. unpacking a tarball requires that
1199 partitioning has been done). The other is _exec_in_chroot(). This is the exact
1200 same syntax as os.system(), however, instead of being run in the liveCD
1201 environment, it runs in the chroot. This requires a bit of fork() magic, so I
1202 isolated the code. Hope to work more this week to get this class formed...
1203
1204 14 Feb 2004; Eric Sammer <esammer@gentoo.org>
1205
1206 Added SAX parsing. Made GLI.InstallProfile a subclass of xml.sax.ContentHandler for
1207 obvious reasons. Switched kernel_modules and users to be lists instead of tuples
1208 to allow for easier modification (mutable, rather than immutable objects). Updated
1209 existing pydoc and added more. Implemented body of GLI.InstallProfile.parse().
1210 Cleaned file format of GLI.py a bit. Fixed all accessors to use self references.
1211 Added initial unit test code.
1212
1213 9 Feb 2004; Eric Sammer <esammer@gentoo.org>
1214
1215 Added initial changelog. Setting up the basic structure of the CVS repository
1216 for the project. Added the UML class diagram in docs. Added a skeletal GLI
1217 python module. Added misc files such news, authors, etc.
