591 2.4 support (pull version data from /usr/src/linux/Makefile), incl.
592 'make dep' call for custom compile. build_mode support for prepare-only and
593 none types completed. custom compile function chains shell functions in
594 spawned script, to allow for catching all errors.
595
596 15 Jun 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
597 fixed up build_kernel in ArchTemplate for build_mode as well as in dialogfe

599
600 14 Jun 2005; Robin H. Johnson <robbat2@gentoo.org>
601 src/GLIInstallProfile.py:
602 Change structure of etc-portage stuff. The serialization was broken before my
603 last commit, and I am the only person that's ever used it. The new schema is
604 as follows:
605 <etc-portage>
606 <file name="package.mask"/>
607 <file name="package.unmask">
608 <entry atom="sys-kernel/openmosix-sources"/>
609 </file>
610 <file name="package.use">
611 <entry atom="sys-libs/db">
612 -java
613 </entry>
614 <entry atom="dev-libs/cyrus-sasl">
615 -ldap
616 </entry>
617 </file>
618 </etc-portage>
619

621 13 Jun 2005; Robin H. Johnson <robbat2@gentoo.org>
622 src/GLIInstallProfile.py:
623 Add new entry for gli-profile/kernel-build-method item. Add missing
624 serialize_etc_portage (temporary). Make serialize_make_conf always print the
625 keys in the same order.

630 was repeatedly appended to make.conf.
631
632 13 Jun 2005; Robin H. Johnson <robbat2@gentoo.org>
633 src/GLIArchitectureTemplate.py:
634 Put some Linux-2.6 specific code under a if statement. Store list of
635 successfully mounted swap device for using swapoff. Add proper error checking
636 to install_packages and install_filesystem_tools. Fixed namespace conflicts on
637 'file'. Clean up some redundant code (thanks to pychecker).'
638
639 13 Jun 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
640 Fix typos: get_extended() instead of get_extended_partition(). Added
641 list_mirrors() and list_stage_tarballs_from_mirror() functions to GLIUtility.

643
644 12 Jun 2005; John N. Laliberte <allanonjl@gentoo.org>
645 GLIInstallProfile.py: add missing set for dhcp_options if a tuple is passed
646 in add_network_interface.
647
648 12 Jun 2005; Robin H. Johnson <robbat2@gentoo.org> src/GLIArchitectureTemplate.py:
649 ensure PORTAGE_TMPDIR/PORT_LOGDIR/PORTDIR_OVERLAY/PKGDIR exist prior to any
650 usage - this caused a failure for stage1/stage2 previously. swapoff for swap
651 space at end of install. Mount /dev, /dev/shm, /dev/pts and /sys during
652 prepare_chroot.
653
654 11 Jun 2005; Robin H. Johnson <robbat2@gentoo.org> +src/cli/clife.py,

663 and should not be touched (netboot for example).
664
665 11 Jun 2005; Robin H. Johnson <robbat2@gentoo.org>
666 src/GLIArchitectureTemplate.py:
667 pcmcia is not a variable name for a call to _add_to_runlevel, it should be a
668 string!. Try to use binary packages if available by default.
669
670 11 Jun 2005; Robin H. Johnson <robbat2@gentoo.org>
671 src/GLIArchitectureTemplate.py:
672 More error checking for _add_to_runlevel, to ensure that the init script
673 actually exists before we try to add it. set_services phase must take place
674 after the package installation, otherwise the init scripts might not exist.
675 Find the correct init script for the cron and logging daemons, and add that
676 instead of the package atom.
677
678 11 Jun 2005; Robin H. Johnson <robbat2@gentoo.org>
679 src/GLIArchitectureTemplate.py:
680 Fix up _edit_config so that it works if the file doesn't already exist. Fix

682 __builtin__.file.
683
684 11 Jun 2005; Robin H. Johnson <robbat2@gentoo.org>
685 src/GLIArchitectureTemplate.py:
686 Add MTA install code, and include MTA install phase. Ensure
687 PORT_LOGDIR/PORTDIR_OVERLAY are created in _emerge if needed. Add support

709
710 11 Jun 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
711 Move /tmp/spawn.sh and /tmp/post-install to /var/tmp since that should always
712 be executable.
713
714 10 Jun 2005; Scott Myron <samyron@gentoo.org>
715 Fixed one of the FIXME's in the ClientConfiguration. There is now some
716 error checking when you call set_architecture_template.
717
718 10 Jun 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
719 moved the mkfsopts input to the partition options menu instead of the during
720 the creation process. updated GenDialog to say it supports reiserfs v3.
721

922 8 Apr 2005; Scott Myron <samyron@gentoo.org>
923 Added support for DHCP options and MAC addresses in the InstallProfile.
924
925 3 Apr 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
926 Changed mountopts check to work for blank and whitespace. Pipe emerge through
927 sed to properly strip out junk.
928
929 2 Apr 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
930 fixed the way set_timezone works. added hotplug/coldplug for livecd-kernel
931 added --emptytree to stage2. fixed ethx not being added to runlevel defalt.
932
933 31 Mar 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
934 Fixed indent problem in GLICController
935
936 30 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
937 Check for disklabel type "loop" and use the device name without a minor.
938
939 29 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
940 Remove /tmp/compile_output.log and /var/log/install.log when install is
941 complete. Added code to (hopefully) keep 2nd thread running after install.
942 Patch from zahna for extra arguments to the kernel. Patch from zahna to add
943 get_eth_info() function. Remove most of content in amd64ArchTemplate and
944 make it inherit from x86Archtemplate. kernel_args -> bootloader_kernel_args
945
946 28 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
947 Added 'append_log=True' to all spawn() calls using logfile=. Append to log
948 when unpacking tarball.
949
950 28 Mar 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
951 rewrote filesystem_tools. looks like it works so ripping out all the old
952 filesystem_tools code.
953
954 26 Mar 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
955 Changed the print statements to logging in the partitioning BE code.
956 the logger may need to be imported to the x86archtemplate. unknown yet.
957 Added the finishing_cleanup function.
958 added a fix to the logger from BenUrban
959
960 25 Mar 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
961 changed InstallProfile to remove is_uri check on kernel, stage, and portage
962 URIs. The blank uri check has been commented out.
963 ripped out error checking of set_services. this is done by _add_to_runlevel.
964
965 25 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
966 set_stage_tarball_uri() doesn't raise an exception on a blank string.
967
968 24 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
969 GRP-ish quickpkg code pulls PKGDIR and PORTAGE_TMPDIR from make.conf info in
970 the install profile if available. Commented out spawn() debugging prints
971
972 23 Mar 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
973 small changes to setup_network_post. moved adding to runlevel of net.x to
974 after the device gets symlinked. added domainname runlevel command.
975
976 23 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
977 minor fix (hopefully) to livecd-kernel code. Removed call to mkvardb in
978 livecd-kernel code as it's now done by catalyst. Switch _emerge() call to
979 spawn() call in livecd-kernel code to pass environment variables.
980 livecd-kernel code pulls PKGDIR and PORTAGE_TMPDIR from make.conf info in
981 the install profile if available.
982
983 23 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
984 Added code to build_kernel() and emerge_kernel_sources() in ArchTemplate
985 to handle installing the livecd kernel into the new system.
986
987 22 Mar 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
988 should emerge hotplug and coldplug before adding them to runlevel.
989
990 21 Mar 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
991 took chroot out of grub_install command.
992
993 21 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
994 Changed chroot wrapper code in spawn() to write the wrapper the python way
995 instead of the bash way to avoid quote conflicts. Added
996 'logfile=self._compile_logfile' to a number of spawn() calls. Added new
997 hash_password() function to GLIUtility. Remove command to 'rm /tmp/spawn.sh'
998 as it breaks the piping.
999
1000 20 Mar 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
1001 Added the amd64ArchitectureTemplate, mostly a copy of x86 without lilo.
1002
1003 20 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
1004 Added _get_packages_to_emerge() to GLIArchitectureTemplate and calls in
1005 stage1() and stage2(). Added 'origminor' parameter to GLIStorageDevice and
1006 GLIInstallProfile.
1007
1008 19 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
1009 Fixed a couple bugs in add_netmount() in GLIInstallProfile. spawn() outputs
1010 to the actual tty8 with display_on_tty8 flag. Compile output logfile moved
1011 into /mnt/gentoo in prepare_chroot()
1012
1013 18 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
1014 Add sigunmask.c contributed by d_m (on freenode) to counteract python's
1015 retarted behavior regarding threads and signals. Add code to convert MB/%/*
1016 to start/end sectors
1017
1018 17 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
1019 Add 2>&1 to cmd in spawn()
1020
1021 16 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
1022 Modified GLIUtility.exitsuccess() to work with return value from
1023 commands.getstatusoutput instead of os.waitpid(). spawn() automatically
1024 creates wrapper script for commands run inside chroot so multiple commands
1025 and redirection can be used. Change exitsuccess() back. Added 'chmod a+x'
1026 for the generated script from spawn()
1027
1028 16 Mar 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
1029 Removed default values for stage tarball URI and portage tree URI from
1030 InstallProfile. These should be set by the FEs. also added services step to
1031 ArchTemplate and coldplug/hotplug runlevels to the genkernel step.
1032 Possibly fixed CC DHCP bug with -n. (thx agaffney)
1033
1034 14 Mar 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
1035 Small fix for setting the default gateway. Also added feature to dialogfe.
1036
1037 7 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
1038 Switched spawn() over to commands.getstatusoutput() instead of fork/waitpid
1039
1040 1 Mar 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
1041 Fixed a bunch of true -> True typos. lots of em
1042 only write new resolv.conf if there are dns servers listed.
1043
1044 1 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
1045 Commented out 'display_on_tty8=True' in start_portmap()
1046
1047 18 Feb 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
1048 added progress bar to dialogfe and fix logger bug in ArchTemplate.
1049
1050 18 Feb 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
1051 Created GLISayWhat module. Renamed GLISayWhat to GLILocalization. Moved
1052 lang parameter to __init__()
1053
1054 10 Feb 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
1055 updates to TODO list.
1056
1057 6 Feb 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
1058 Initial code for quickpkg GRP support. Fix loop to grab packages from
1059 'emerge -p blah'
1060
1061 6 Feb 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
1062 check for dhcp in the network stuff and emerge it if it is.
1063 added quickpkg to TODO list
1064
1065 5 Feb 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
1066 Changed the raising of 'warning' exceptions to a simple log of the error
1067 so that the installer can continue.
1068
1069 3 Feb 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
1070 Some big changes. First, changed most output to display_on_tty8.
1071 Second, added log lines to all templates. Some smaller fixes such as typos.
1072 Also did some cleanups of old commented lines.
1073
1074 1 Feb 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
1075 Changed tty8 output to a fifo. Minor GLIStorageDevice fix thanks to BenUrban.
1076 Undo change with fix. Escaping fix in GLIStorageDevice.py
1077
1078 31 Jan 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
1079 more updates to TODO list. hopefully we'll soon start removing items instead
1080 of adding them.
1081
1082 29 Jan 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
1083 Changed the way GLIStorageDevice.get_max_sectors_for_resize() works
1084
1085 27 Jan 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
1086 updated TODO list. (again)
1087
1088 25 Jan 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
1089 changed output of portmap start to display_on_tty8.
1090 fixed bootloader for udev and multiple kernels
1091 fixed custom kernel config (again)
1092
1093 22 Jan 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
1094 changed default value of CC._enable_ssh to True because this is smart.
1095 added code to allow custom kernel .config. may be unstable and break. sorry.
1096
1097 21 Jan 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
1098 partition() now waits until after it checks for partition flags before delete
1099 the partitions :P
1100
1101 19 Jan 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
1102 Updated TODO. swapon failure it temporarily not an error. swapon is an error
1103 again. is_uri() check only performed on portage_tree_snapshot_uri if it isn't
1104 blank.
1105
1106 19 Jan 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
1107 Various fixes related to the add_users function. Still not yet finished.
1108 Added things to the TODO list. Lets start using that!
1109
1110 18 Jan 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
1111 Added code to x86Template to format newly created partitions. Also added
1112 some error checking code. GLIStorageDevice passes 'minor' with data to
1113 InstallProfile. Added partition() call back in ArchTemplate. Fixed NFS
1114 mounting code.
1115
1116 18 Jan 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
1117 Took out unnecessary setting of random livecd root password. the cd already
1118 sets it randomly.
1119
1120 15 Jan 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
1121 Took out an unneeded step from CC's run()
1122
1123 15 Jan 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
1124 Attempt at detecting and adding windows partitions to lilo.
1125
1126 14 Jan 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
1127 Added lilo code and cleaned up lilo code. also do_partitioning renamed to
1128 partition. fixed misc exit_status => exitstatus typo.
1129
1130 11 Jan 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
1131 Added basic code for resizing filesystems with pyparted. Fixed code for
1132 resizing ntfs and ext2/3.
1133
1134 10 Jan 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
1135 Fixed partition() in x86Template so that it scans through logicals and deletes
1136 before deleting containing extended partition. Also clears partition table to
1137 be safe before third pass.
1138
1139 08 Jan 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
1140 Added mount_network_shares. not able to test it from this computer.
1141 will test when i get back to school.
1142 also added start_portmap to the client_controller as an always-do.
1143 agaffney says this is needed for NFS mounts to work.
1144
1145 08 Jan 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
1146 Partial rewrite of partitioning code in x86Template. No longer shells out to
1147 parted to perform actions, now uses all pyparted calls. Code "works" in a
1148 test, but still needs lots of TLC. Also modified tests/install.py to work
1149 with x86Template and GLIClientConfiguration.
1150
1151 07 Jan 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
1152 Initial move of partitioning code from ArchTemplate to x86Template.
1153
1154 07 Jan 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
1155 Added grp_install and services to InstallProfile. forgot about the set_root_password
1156
1157 07 Jan 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
1158 Fixed a few more edit_configs. fixed a chroot multicommand bug thanks to agaffney.
1159 Test Install ran very well (skipping partitioning).
1160
1161 05 Jan 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
1162 My mid-day update. rewrote mount_local_partitions for order of mounting. fixed prepare_chroot
1163 rewrote configure_fstab and install_bootloader for new partition format. fixed a few _edit_configs.
1164 some may still have eluded me.
1165
1166 05 Jan 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
1167 Overhauled the entire ArchTemplate and did a lot of other misc fixes in order to test it.
1168 Just finished mount_local_partitions in GLIArchitectureTemplate
1169
1170 05 Jan 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
1171 Added get_num_sectors() to GLIStorageDevice.
1172
1173 04 Jan 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
1174 GLIStorageDevice now tracks partition boundaries in sectors instead of cylinders.
1175 Also now ignores <=100 sectors for free space. Removed remaining depends stuff
1176 from GLIInstallProfile.
1177
1178 20 Dec 2004; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
1179 GLIStorageDevice returns "unknown" instead of "" for get_type()
1180
1181 19 Dec 2004; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
1182 Added get_extended_partition() to GLIStorageDevice. Rewrote get_logicals() to
1183 actually work. Commented out resizability checking code for speed.
1184
1185 17 Dec 2004; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
1186 Switched to using dumpe2fs to determine free space left in ext2/3 filesystem in
1187 GLIStorageDevice at the suggestion of plors
1188
1189 10 Dec 2004; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
1190 Added a function to GLIUtility to pull a value from a make.conf-style config
1191 file. Minor type fix to GLIInstallProfile.py
1192
1193 09 Dec 2004; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
1194 Added code in GLIArchitectureTemplate.py to write netmounts into fstab. Separated
1195 network mounts from partition data structure in GLIInstallProfile
1196
1197 27 Nov 2004; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
1198 Changed the way GLIStorageDevice.py determines the amount a ext2/3 filesystem
1199 can be resized.
1200
1201 27 Oct 2004; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
1202 Added some of the final functions to GLIInstallTemplate.
1203 Yes this project is still active despite rare use of the Changelog!
1204
1205 11 Jun 2004; Nathaniel McCallum <npmccallum@gentoo.org>
1206 Added the GLIPartitionTools.py file. This is a temporary insertion of
1207 partitioning tools that will eventually go into their own package.
1208
1209 27 Mar 2004; Nathaniel McCallum <npmccallum@gentoo.org>
1210 Added InstallProfileTODO.txt. Added GLIClientConfiguration.py (contains run-time
1211 for the program). Added __init__(install_profile, client_configuration) to
1212 GLI.InstallProfile. This sets install_profile and client_configuration once so as
1213 to avoid constantly passing stuff every time we call a method.
1214
1215 26 Mar 2004; Nathaniel McCallum <npmccallum@gentoo.org>
1216
1217 Added another private method to GLI.InstallTemplate. _edit_config() modifies config
1218 files without messing up all the other stuff in them. This will be used for making
1219 changes to make.conf, rc.conf, /etc/conf.d/net, etc...
1220
1221 25 Mar 2004; Nathaniel McCallum <npmccallum@gentoo.org>
1222
1223 Added GLI.InstallTemplate framework. This is not yet functional. However, it does
1224 have a few basic things. I added two private methods. One is _depends(). This
1225 will be used for dependency checking (ie. unpacking a tarball requires that
1226 partitioning has been done). The other is _exec_in_chroot(). This is the exact
1227 same syntax as os.system(), however, instead of being run in the liveCD
1228 environment, it runs in the chroot. This requires a bit of fork() magic, so I
1229 isolated the code. Hope to work more this week to get this class formed...
1230
1231 14 Feb 2004; Eric Sammer <esammer@gentoo.org>
1232
1233 Added SAX parsing. Made GLI.InstallProfile a subclass of xml.sax.ContentHandler for
1234 obvious reasons. Switched kernel_modules and users to be lists instead of tuples
1235 to allow for easier modification (mutable, rather than immutable objects). Updated
1236 existing pydoc and added more. Implemented body of GLI.InstallProfile.parse().
1237 Cleaned file format of GLI.py a bit. Fixed all accessors to use self references.
1238 Added initial unit test code.
1239
1240 9 Feb 2004; Eric Sammer <esammer@gentoo.org>
1241
1242 Added initial changelog. Setting up the basic structure of the CVS repository
1243 for the project. Added the UML class diagram in docs. Added a skeletal GLI
1244 python module. Added misc files such news, authors, etc.
