646 Changed setup_network_post to check for 'interfaces[interface][0] != "dhcp"'
647 instead of 'interfaces[interface][1]' since DHCP uses that field for its

649
650 20 Jun 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
651 Apply spawn() patch from #96644 (with minor changes). Make sure the return

687
688 15 Jun 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
689 fixed up build_kernel in ArchTemplate for build_mode as well as in dialogfe

691
692 14 Jun 2005; Robin H. Johnson <robbat2@gentoo.org>
693 src/GLIInstallProfile.py:
694 Change structure of etc-portage stuff. The serialization was broken before my
695 last commit, and I am the only person that's ever used it. The new schema is
696 as follows:
697 <etc-portage>
698 <file name="package.mask"/>
699 <file name="package.unmask">
700 <entry atom="sys-kernel/openmosix-sources"/>
701 </file>
702 <file name="package.use">
703 <entry atom="sys-libs/db">
704 -java
705 </entry>
706 <entry atom="dev-libs/cyrus-sasl">
707 -ldap
708 </entry>
709 </file>
710 </etc-portage>
711
712
713 13 Jun 2005; Robin H. Johnson <robbat2@gentoo.org>
714 src/GLIInstallProfile.py:
715 Add new entry for gli-profile/kernel-build-method item. Add missing

722 was repeatedly appended to make.conf.
723
724 13 Jun 2005; Robin H. Johnson <robbat2@gentoo.org>
725 src/GLIArchitectureTemplate.py:
726 Put some Linux-2.6 specific code under a if statement. Store list of
727 successfully mounted swap device for using swapoff. Add proper error checking
728 to install_packages and install_filesystem_tools. Fixed namespace conflicts on
729 'file'. Clean up some redundant code (thanks to pychecker).'
730
731 13 Jun 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
732 Fix typos: get_extended() instead of get_extended_partition(). Added
733 list_mirrors() and list_stage_tarballs_from_mirror() functions to GLIUtility.

738 in add_network_interface.
739
740 12 Jun 2005; Robin H. Johnson <robbat2@gentoo.org> src/GLIArchitectureTemplate.py:
741 ensure PORTAGE_TMPDIR/PORT_LOGDIR/PORTDIR_OVERLAY/PKGDIR exist prior to any
742 usage - this caused a failure for stage1/stage2 previously. swapoff for swap
743 space at end of install. Mount /dev, /dev/shm, /dev/pts and /sys during
744 prepare_chroot.
745
746 11 Jun 2005; Robin H. Johnson <robbat2@gentoo.org> +src/cli/clife.py,

755 and should not be touched (netboot for example).
756
757 11 Jun 2005; Robin H. Johnson <robbat2@gentoo.org>
758 src/GLIArchitectureTemplate.py:
759 pcmcia is not a variable name for a call to _add_to_runlevel, it should be a
760 string!. Try to use binary packages if available by default.
761
762 11 Jun 2005; Robin H. Johnson <robbat2@gentoo.org>
763 src/GLIArchitectureTemplate.py:
764 More error checking for _add_to_runlevel, to ensure that the init script
765 actually exists before we try to add it. set_services phase must take place
766 after the package installation, otherwise the init scripts might not exist.
767 Find the correct init script for the cron and logging daemons, and add that
768 instead of the package atom.
769
770 11 Jun 2005; Robin H. Johnson <robbat2@gentoo.org>
771 src/GLIArchitectureTemplate.py:
772 Fix up _edit_config so that it works if the file doesn't already exist. Fix

774 __builtin__.file.
775
776 11 Jun 2005; Robin H. Johnson <robbat2@gentoo.org>
777 src/GLIArchitectureTemplate.py:
778 Add MTA install code, and include MTA install phase. Ensure

801
802 11 Jun 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
803 Move /tmp/spawn.sh and /tmp/post-install to /var/tmp since that should always
804 be executable.
805
806 10 Jun 2005; Scott Myron <samyron@gentoo.org>
807 Fixed one of the FIXME's in the ClientConfiguration. There is now some
808 error checking when you call set_architecture_template.
809
810 10 Jun 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
811 moved the mkfsopts input to the partition options menu instead of the during
812 the creation process. updated GenDialog to say it supports reiserfs v3.
813

957
958 29 Apr 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
959 Proxies patch from chotchki (bug #90147). Fixed == instead of = typos in
960 GLIStorageDevice (pointed out by chotchki). Fixed missing int()s. Split
961 'custom' sync option into 'none' and 'snapshot'. Minor fixes to
962 GLIStorageDevice as suggested by pychecker. Fix minor bug in

983 code.
984
985 16 Apr 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
986 Changed _edit_config() to modify value in-place instead of commenting out and
987 adding the new value to the end of the file.
988
989 15 Apr 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
990 Back. Did the docuementation thang for ArchTemplate and ClientConfiguration.

993 14 Apr 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
994 Use blackace's one-liner to add comments for all function for use with
995 pythondoc.
996
997 13 Apr 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
998 Moved 'end >= device_sectors' check out of loop to check for next partition's
999 start point (thanks to Marco Djukic). Fix >4 primary partitions on non-x86.
1000 Partitioning code now tracks start/end of extended for placing logicals. End
1001 point of logical is now adjusted along with start.
1002
1003 11 Apr 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
1004 Finish overhaul of backend partitioning code. Fixed all bugs that stood in
1005 the way of partitioning from a blank disk. Add int() around access to minor
1006 key in partition information due to new partition code leaving them as float.
1007
1008 10 Apr 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
1009 tidy_partitions() function in GLIStorageDevice. Tweaks to tidy code

1016
1017 3 Apr 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
1018 Changed mountopts check to work for blank and whitespace. Pipe emerge through
1019 sed to properly strip out junk.
1020
1021 2 Apr 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
1022 fixed the way set_timezone works. added hotplug/coldplug for livecd-kernel

1024
1025 31 Mar 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
1026 Fixed indent problem in GLICController
1027

1030
1031 29 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
1032 Remove /tmp/compile_output.log and /var/log/install.log when install is
1033 complete. Added code to (hopefully) keep 2nd thread running after install.
1034 Patch from zahna for extra arguments to the kernel. Patch from zahna to add
1035 get_eth_info() function. Remove most of content in amd64ArchTemplate and
1036 make it inherit from x86Archtemplate. kernel_args -> bootloader_kernel_args
1037
1038 28 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
1039 Added 'append_log=True' to all spawn() calls using logfile=. Append to log
1040 when unpacking tarball.
1041
1042 28 Mar 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
1043 rewrote filesystem_tools. looks like it works so ripping out all the old
1044 filesystem_tools code.
1045
1046 26 Mar 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
1047 Changed the print statements to logging in the partitioning BE code.
1048 the logger may need to be imported to the x86archtemplate. unknown yet.
1049 Added the finishing_cleanup function.
1050 added a fix to the logger from BenUrban
1051
1052 25 Mar 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
1053 changed InstallProfile to remove is_uri check on kernel, stage, and portage
1054 URIs. The blank uri check has been commented out.
1055 ripped out error checking of set_services. this is done by _add_to_runlevel.
1056
1057 25 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
1058 set_stage_tarball_uri() doesn't raise an exception on a blank string.
1059
1060 24 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
1061 GRP-ish quickpkg code pulls PKGDIR and PORTAGE_TMPDIR from make.conf info in
1062 the install profile if available. Commented out spawn() debugging prints
1063
1064 23 Mar 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
1065 small changes to setup_network_post. moved adding to runlevel of net.x to
1066 after the device gets symlinked. added domainname runlevel command.
1067
1068 23 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
1069 minor fix (hopefully) to livecd-kernel code. Removed call to mkvardb in
1070 livecd-kernel code as it's now done by catalyst. Switch _emerge() call to
1071 spawn() call in livecd-kernel code to pass environment variables.
1072 livecd-kernel code pulls PKGDIR and PORTAGE_TMPDIR from make.conf info in
1073 the install profile if available.
1074
1075 23 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
1076 Added code to build_kernel() and emerge_kernel_sources() in ArchTemplate
1077 to handle installing the livecd kernel into the new system.
1078
1079 22 Mar 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
1080 should emerge hotplug and coldplug before adding them to runlevel.
1081
1082 21 Mar 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
1083 took chroot out of grub_install command.
1084
1085 21 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
1086 Changed chroot wrapper code in spawn() to write the wrapper the python way
1087 instead of the bash way to avoid quote conflicts. Added
1088 'logfile=self._compile_logfile' to a number of spawn() calls. Added new
1089 hash_password() function to GLIUtility. Remove command to 'rm /tmp/spawn.sh'
1090 as it breaks the piping.
1091
1092 20 Mar 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
1093 Added the amd64ArchitectureTemplate, mostly a copy of x86 without lilo.
1094
1095 20 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
1096 Added _get_packages_to_emerge() to GLIArchitectureTemplate and calls in
1097 stage1() and stage2(). Added 'origminor' parameter to GLIStorageDevice and
1098 GLIInstallProfile.
1099
1100 19 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
1101 Fixed a couple bugs in add_netmount() in GLIInstallProfile. spawn() outputs
1102 to the actual tty8 with display_on_tty8 flag. Compile output logfile moved
1103 into /mnt/gentoo in prepare_chroot()
1104
1105 18 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
1106 Add sigunmask.c contributed by d_m (on freenode) to counteract python's
1107 retarted behavior regarding threads and signals. Add code to convert MB/%/*
1108 to start/end sectors
1109
1110 17 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
1111 Add 2>&1 to cmd in spawn()
1112
1113 16 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
1114 Modified GLIUtility.exitsuccess() to work with return value from
1115 commands.getstatusoutput instead of os.waitpid(). spawn() automatically
1116 creates wrapper script for commands run inside chroot so multiple commands
1117 and redirection can be used. Change exitsuccess() back. Added 'chmod a+x'
1118 for the generated script from spawn()
1119
1120 16 Mar 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
1121 Removed default values for stage tarball URI and portage tree URI from
1122 InstallProfile. These should be set by the FEs. also added services step to
1123 ArchTemplate and coldplug/hotplug runlevels to the genkernel step.
1124 Possibly fixed CC DHCP bug with -n. (thx agaffney)
1125
1126 14 Mar 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
1127 Small fix for setting the default gateway. Also added feature to dialogfe.
1128
1129 7 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
1130 Switched spawn() over to commands.getstatusoutput() instead of fork/waitpid
1131
1132 1 Mar 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
1133 Fixed a bunch of true -> True typos. lots of em
1134 only write new resolv.conf if there are dns servers listed.
1135
1136 1 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
1137 Commented out 'display_on_tty8=True' in start_portmap()
1138
1139 18 Feb 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
1140 added progress bar to dialogfe and fix logger bug in ArchTemplate.
1141
1142 18 Feb 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
1143 Created GLISayWhat module. Renamed GLISayWhat to GLILocalization. Moved
1144 lang parameter to __init__()
1145
1146 10 Feb 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
1147 updates to TODO list.
1148
1149 6 Feb 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
1150 Initial code for quickpkg GRP support. Fix loop to grab packages from
1151 'emerge -p blah'
1152
1153 6 Feb 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
1154 check for dhcp in the network stuff and emerge it if it is.
1155 added quickpkg to TODO list
1156
1157 5 Feb 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
1158 Changed the raising of 'warning' exceptions to a simple log of the error
1159 so that the installer can continue.
1160
1161 3 Feb 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
1162 Some big changes. First, changed most output to display_on_tty8.
1163 Second, added log lines to all templates. Some smaller fixes such as typos.
1164 Also did some cleanups of old commented lines.
1165
1166 1 Feb 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
1167 Changed tty8 output to a fifo. Minor GLIStorageDevice fix thanks to BenUrban.
1168 Undo change with fix. Escaping fix in GLIStorageDevice.py
1169
1170 31 Jan 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
1171 more updates to TODO list. hopefully we'll soon start removing items instead
1172 of adding them.
1173
1174 29 Jan 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
1175 Changed the way GLIStorageDevice.get_max_sectors_for_resize() works
1176
1177 27 Jan 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
1178 updated TODO list. (again)
1179
1180 25 Jan 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
1181 changed output of portmap start to display_on_tty8.
1182 fixed bootloader for udev and multiple kernels
1183 fixed custom kernel config (again)
1184
1185 22 Jan 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
1186 changed default value of CC._enable_ssh to True because this is smart.
1187 added code to allow custom kernel .config. may be unstable and break. sorry.
1188
1189 21 Jan 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
1190 partition() now waits until after it checks for partition flags before delete
1191 the partitions :P
1192
1193 19 Jan 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
1194 Updated TODO. swapon failure it temporarily not an error. swapon is an error
1195 again. is_uri() check only performed on portage_tree_snapshot_uri if it isn't
1196 blank.
1197
1198 19 Jan 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
1199 Various fixes related to the add_users function. Still not yet finished.
1200 Added things to the TODO list. Lets start using that!
1201
1202 18 Jan 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
1203 Added code to x86Template to format newly created partitions. Also added
1204 some error checking code. GLIStorageDevice passes 'minor' with data to
1205 InstallProfile. Added partition() call back in ArchTemplate. Fixed NFS
1206 mounting code.
1207
1208 18 Jan 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
1209 Took out unnecessary setting of random livecd root password. the cd already
1210 sets it randomly.
1211
1212 15 Jan 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
1213 Took out an unneeded step from CC's run()
1214
1215 15 Jan 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
1216 Attempt at detecting and adding windows partitions to lilo.
1217
1218 14 Jan 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
1219 Added lilo code and cleaned up lilo code. also do_partitioning renamed to
1220 partition. fixed misc exit_status => exitstatus typo.
1221
1222 11 Jan 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
1223 Added basic code for resizing filesystems with pyparted. Fixed code for
1224 resizing ntfs and ext2/3.
1225
1226 10 Jan 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
1227 Fixed partition() in x86Template so that it scans through logicals and deletes
1228 before deleting containing extended partition. Also clears partition table to
1229 be safe before third pass.
1230
1231 08 Jan 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
1232 Added mount_network_shares. not able to test it from this computer.
1233 will test when i get back to school.
1234 also added start_portmap to the client_controller as an always-do.
1235 agaffney says this is needed for NFS mounts to work.
1236
1237 08 Jan 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
1238 Partial rewrite of partitioning code in x86Template. No longer shells out to
1239 parted to perform actions, now uses all pyparted calls. Code "works" in a
1240 test, but still needs lots of TLC. Also modified tests/install.py to work
1241 with x86Template and GLIClientConfiguration.
1242
1243 07 Jan 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
1244 Initial move of partitioning code from ArchTemplate to x86Template.
1245
1246 07 Jan 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
1247 Added grp_install and services to InstallProfile. forgot about the set_root_password
1248
1249 07 Jan 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
1250 Fixed a few more edit_configs. fixed a chroot multicommand bug thanks to agaffney.
1251 Test Install ran very well (skipping partitioning).
1252
1253 05 Jan 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
1254 My mid-day update. rewrote mount_local_partitions for order of mounting. fixed prepare_chroot
1255 rewrote configure_fstab and install_bootloader for new partition format. fixed a few _edit_configs.
1256 some may still have eluded me.
1257
1258 05 Jan 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
1259 Overhauled the entire ArchTemplate and did a lot of other misc fixes in order to test it.
1260 Just finished mount_local_partitions in GLIArchitectureTemplate
1261
1262 05 Jan 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
1263 Added get_num_sectors() to GLIStorageDevice.
1264
1265 04 Jan 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
1266 GLIStorageDevice now tracks partition boundaries in sectors instead of cylinders.
1267 Also now ignores <=100 sectors for free space. Removed remaining depends stuff
1268 from GLIInstallProfile.
1269
1270 20 Dec 2004; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
1271 GLIStorageDevice returns "unknown" instead of "" for get_type()
1272
1273 19 Dec 2004; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
1274 Added get_extended_partition() to GLIStorageDevice. Rewrote get_logicals() to
1275 actually work. Commented out resizability checking code for speed.
1276
1277 17 Dec 2004; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
1278 Switched to using dumpe2fs to determine free space left in ext2/3 filesystem in
1279 GLIStorageDevice at the suggestion of plors
1280
1281 10 Dec 2004; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
1282 Added a function to GLIUtility to pull a value from a make.conf-style config
1283 file. Minor type fix to GLIInstallProfile.py
1284
1285 09 Dec 2004; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
1286 Added code in GLIArchitectureTemplate.py to write netmounts into fstab. Separated
1287 network mounts from partition data structure in GLIInstallProfile
1288
1289 27 Nov 2004; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
1290 Changed the way GLIStorageDevice.py determines the amount a ext2/3 filesystem
1291 can be resized.
1292
1293 27 Oct 2004; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
1294 Added some of the final functions to GLIInstallTemplate.
1295 Yes this project is still active despite rare use of the Changelog!
1296
1297 11 Jun 2004; Nathaniel McCallum <npmccallum@gentoo.org>
1298 Added the GLIPartitionTools.py file. This is a temporary insertion of
1299 partitioning tools that will eventually go into their own package.
1300
1301 27 Mar 2004; Nathaniel McCallum <npmccallum@gentoo.org>
1302 Added InstallProfileTODO.txt. Added GLIClientConfiguration.py (contains run-time
1303 for the program). Added __init__(install_profile, client_configuration) to
1304 GLI.InstallProfile. This sets install_profile and client_configuration once so as
1305 to avoid constantly passing stuff every time we call a method.
1306
1307 26 Mar 2004; Nathaniel McCallum <npmccallum@gentoo.org>
1308
1309 Added another private method to GLI.InstallTemplate. _edit_config() modifies config
1310 files without messing up all the other stuff in them. This will be used for making
1311 changes to make.conf, rc.conf, /etc/conf.d/net, etc...
1312
1313 25 Mar 2004; Nathaniel McCallum <npmccallum@gentoo.org>
1314
1315 Added GLI.InstallTemplate framework. This is not yet functional. However, it does
1316 have a few basic things. I added two private methods. One is _depends(). This
1317 will be used for dependency checking (ie. unpacking a tarball requires that
1318 partitioning has been done). The other is _exec_in_chroot(). This is the exact
1319 same syntax as os.system(), however, instead of being run in the liveCD
1320 environment, it runs in the chroot. This requires a bit of fork() magic, so I
1321 isolated the code. Hope to work more this week to get this class formed...
1322
1323 14 Feb 2004; Eric Sammer <esammer@gentoo.org>
1324
1325 Added SAX parsing. Made GLI.InstallProfile a subclass of xml.sax.ContentHandler for
1326 obvious reasons. Switched kernel_modules and users to be lists instead of tuples
1327 to allow for easier modification (mutable, rather than immutable objects). Updated
1328 existing pydoc and added more. Implemented body of GLI.InstallProfile.parse().
1329 Cleaned file format of GLI.py a bit. Fixed all accessors to use self references.
1330 Added initial unit test code.
1331
1332 9 Feb 2004; Eric Sammer <esammer@gentoo.org>
1333
1334 Added initial changelog. Setting up the basic structure of the CVS repository
1335 for the project. Added the UML class diagram in docs. Added a skeletal GLI
1336 python module. Added misc files such news, authors, etc.
