697
698 14 Jun 2005; Robin H. Johnson <robbat2@gentoo.org>
699 src/GLIInstallProfile.py:
700 Change structure of etc-portage stuff. The serialization was broken before my
701 last commit, and I am the only person that's ever used it. The new schema is
702 as follows:
703 <etc-portage>
704 <file name="package.mask"/>
705 <file name="package.unmask">
706 <entry atom="sys-kernel/openmosix-sources"/>
707 </file>
708 <file name="package.use">
709 <entry atom="sys-libs/db">
710 -java
711 </entry>
712 <entry atom="dev-libs/cyrus-sasl">
713 -ldap
714 </entry>
715 </file>
716 </etc-portage>
717

728 was repeatedly appended to make.conf.
729
730 13 Jun 2005; Robin H. Johnson <robbat2@gentoo.org>
731 src/GLIArchitectureTemplate.py:
732 Put some Linux-2.6 specific code under a if statement. Store list of
733 successfully mounted swap device for using swapoff. Add proper error checking
734 to install_packages and install_filesystem_tools. Fixed namespace conflicts on
735 'file'. Clean up some redundant code (thanks to pychecker).'
736
737 13 Jun 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>

744 in add_network_interface.
745
746 12 Jun 2005; Robin H. Johnson <robbat2@gentoo.org> src/GLIArchitectureTemplate.py:
747 ensure PORTAGE_TMPDIR/PORT_LOGDIR/PORTDIR_OVERLAY/PKGDIR exist prior to any
748 usage - this caused a failure for stage1/stage2 previously. swapoff for swap
749 space at end of install. Mount /dev, /dev/shm, /dev/pts and /sys during
750 prepare_chroot.
751
752 11 Jun 2005; Robin H. Johnson <robbat2@gentoo.org> +src/cli/clife.py,

761 and should not be touched (netboot for example).
762
763 11 Jun 2005; Robin H. Johnson <robbat2@gentoo.org>
764 src/GLIArchitectureTemplate.py:
765 pcmcia is not a variable name for a call to _add_to_runlevel, it should be a
766 string!. Try to use binary packages if available by default.
767
768 11 Jun 2005; Robin H. Johnson <robbat2@gentoo.org>
769 src/GLIArchitectureTemplate.py:
770 More error checking for _add_to_runlevel, to ensure that the init script
771 actually exists before we try to add it. set_services phase must take place
772 after the package installation, otherwise the init scripts might not exist.
773 Find the correct init script for the cron and logging daemons, and add that
774 instead of the package atom.
775
776 11 Jun 2005; Robin H. Johnson <robbat2@gentoo.org>
777 src/GLIArchitectureTemplate.py:
778 Fix up _edit_config so that it works if the file doesn't already exist. Fix

790 Rename mta variables to match syslog/cron variables.
791
792 11 Jun 2005; Robin H. Johnson <robbat2@gentoo.org>
793 src/GLIArchitectureTemplate.py, src/templates/x86ArchitectureTemplate.py,
794 src/.cvsignore, src/fe/dialog/.cvsignore, src/fe/gtk/.cvsignore,

807
808 11 Jun 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
809 Move /tmp/spawn.sh and /tmp/post-install to /var/tmp since that should always
810 be executable.
811
812 10 Jun 2005; Scott Myron <samyron@gentoo.org>
813 Fixed one of the FIXME's in the ClientConfiguration. There is now some
814 error checking when you call set_architecture_template.
815
816 10 Jun 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
817 moved the mkfsopts input to the partition options menu instead of the during
818 the creation process. updated GenDialog to say it supports reiserfs v3.
819

989 code.
990
991 16 Apr 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
992 Changed _edit_config() to modify value in-place instead of commenting out and
993 adding the new value to the end of the file.
994
995 15 Apr 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
996 Back. Did the docuementation thang for ArchTemplate and ClientConfiguration.

1000 Use blackace's one-liner to add comments for all function for use with
1001 pythondoc.
1002
1003 13 Apr 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
1004 Moved 'end >= device_sectors' check out of loop to check for next partition's
1005 start point (thanks to Marco Djukic). Fix >4 primary partitions on non-x86.
1006 Partitioning code now tracks start/end of extended for placing logicals. End
1007 point of logical is now adjusted along with start.
1008
1009 11 Apr 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
1010 Finish overhaul of backend partitioning code. Fixed all bugs that stood in
1011 the way of partitioning from a blank disk. Add int() around access to minor
1012 key in partition information due to new partition code leaving them as float.
1013
1014 10 Apr 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
1015 tidy_partitions() function in GLIStorageDevice. Tweaks to tidy code

1021 Added support for DHCP options and MAC addresses in the InstallProfile.
1022
1023 3 Apr 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
1024 Changed mountopts check to work for blank and whitespace. Pipe emerge through
1025 sed to properly strip out junk.
1026
1027 2 Apr 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
1028 fixed the way set_timezone works. added hotplug/coldplug for livecd-kernel

1030
1031 31 Mar 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
1032 Fixed indent problem in GLICController
1033
1034 30 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>

1036
1037 29 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
1038 Remove /tmp/compile_output.log and /var/log/install.log when install is
1039 complete. Added code to (hopefully) keep 2nd thread running after install.
1040 Patch from zahna for extra arguments to the kernel. Patch from zahna to add
1041 get_eth_info() function. Remove most of content in amd64ArchTemplate and
1042 make it inherit from x86Archtemplate. kernel_args -> bootloader_kernel_args
1043
1044 28 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
1045 Added 'append_log=True' to all spawn() calls using logfile=. Append to log
1046 when unpacking tarball.
1047
1048 28 Mar 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
1049 rewrote filesystem_tools. looks like it works so ripping out all the old
1050 filesystem_tools code.
1051
1052 26 Mar 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
1053 Changed the print statements to logging in the partitioning BE code.
1054 the logger may need to be imported to the x86archtemplate. unknown yet.
1055 Added the finishing_cleanup function.
1056 added a fix to the logger from BenUrban
1057
1058 25 Mar 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
1059 changed InstallProfile to remove is_uri check on kernel, stage, and portage
1060 URIs. The blank uri check has been commented out.
1061 ripped out error checking of set_services. this is done by _add_to_runlevel.
1062
1063 25 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
1064 set_stage_tarball_uri() doesn't raise an exception on a blank string.
1065
1066 24 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
1067 GRP-ish quickpkg code pulls PKGDIR and PORTAGE_TMPDIR from make.conf info in
1068 the install profile if available. Commented out spawn() debugging prints
1069
1070 23 Mar 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
1071 small changes to setup_network_post. moved adding to runlevel of net.x to
1072 after the device gets symlinked. added domainname runlevel command.
1073
1074 23 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
1075 minor fix (hopefully) to livecd-kernel code. Removed call to mkvardb in
1076 livecd-kernel code as it's now done by catalyst. Switch _emerge() call to
1077 spawn() call in livecd-kernel code to pass environment variables.
1078 livecd-kernel code pulls PKGDIR and PORTAGE_TMPDIR from make.conf info in
1079 the install profile if available.
1080
1081 23 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
1082 Added code to build_kernel() and emerge_kernel_sources() in ArchTemplate
1083 to handle installing the livecd kernel into the new system.
1084
1085 22 Mar 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
1086 should emerge hotplug and coldplug before adding them to runlevel.
1087
1088 21 Mar 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
1089 took chroot out of grub_install command.
1090
1091 21 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
1092 Changed chroot wrapper code in spawn() to write the wrapper the python way
1093 instead of the bash way to avoid quote conflicts. Added
1094 'logfile=self._compile_logfile' to a number of spawn() calls. Added new
1095 hash_password() function to GLIUtility. Remove command to 'rm /tmp/spawn.sh'
1096 as it breaks the piping.
1097
1098 20 Mar 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
1099 Added the amd64ArchitectureTemplate, mostly a copy of x86 without lilo.
1100
1101 20 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
1102 Added _get_packages_to_emerge() to GLIArchitectureTemplate and calls in
1103 stage1() and stage2(). Added 'origminor' parameter to GLIStorageDevice and
1104 GLIInstallProfile.
1105
1106 19 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
1107 Fixed a couple bugs in add_netmount() in GLIInstallProfile. spawn() outputs
1108 to the actual tty8 with display_on_tty8 flag. Compile output logfile moved
1109 into /mnt/gentoo in prepare_chroot()
1110
1111 18 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
1112 Add sigunmask.c contributed by d_m (on freenode) to counteract python's
1113 retarted behavior regarding threads and signals. Add code to convert MB/%/*
1114 to start/end sectors
1115
1116 17 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
1117 Add 2>&1 to cmd in spawn()
1118
1119 16 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
1120 Modified GLIUtility.exitsuccess() to work with return value from
1121 commands.getstatusoutput instead of os.waitpid(). spawn() automatically
1122 creates wrapper script for commands run inside chroot so multiple commands
1123 and redirection can be used. Change exitsuccess() back. Added 'chmod a+x'
1124 for the generated script from spawn()
1125
1126 16 Mar 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
1127 Removed default values for stage tarball URI and portage tree URI from
1128 InstallProfile. These should be set by the FEs. also added services step to
1129 ArchTemplate and coldplug/hotplug runlevels to the genkernel step.
1130 Possibly fixed CC DHCP bug with -n. (thx agaffney)
1131
1132 14 Mar 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
1133 Small fix for setting the default gateway. Also added feature to dialogfe.
1134
1135 7 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
1136 Switched spawn() over to commands.getstatusoutput() instead of fork/waitpid
1137
1138 1 Mar 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
1139 Fixed a bunch of true -> True typos. lots of em
1140 only write new resolv.conf if there are dns servers listed.
1141
1142 1 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
1143 Commented out 'display_on_tty8=True' in start_portmap()
1144
1145 18 Feb 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
1146 added progress bar to dialogfe and fix logger bug in ArchTemplate.
1147
1148 18 Feb 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
1149 Created GLISayWhat module. Renamed GLISayWhat to GLILocalization. Moved
1150 lang parameter to __init__()
1151
1152 10 Feb 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
1153 updates to TODO list.
1154
1155 6 Feb 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
1156 Initial code for quickpkg GRP support. Fix loop to grab packages from
1157 'emerge -p blah'
1158
1159 6 Feb 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
1160 check for dhcp in the network stuff and emerge it if it is.
1161 added quickpkg to TODO list
1162
1163 5 Feb 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
1164 Changed the raising of 'warning' exceptions to a simple log of the error
1165 so that the installer can continue.
1166
1167 3 Feb 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
1168 Some big changes. First, changed most output to display_on_tty8.
1169 Second, added log lines to all templates. Some smaller fixes such as typos.
1170 Also did some cleanups of old commented lines.
1171
1172 1 Feb 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
1173 Changed tty8 output to a fifo. Minor GLIStorageDevice fix thanks to BenUrban.
1174 Undo change with fix. Escaping fix in GLIStorageDevice.py
1175
1176 31 Jan 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
1177 more updates to TODO list. hopefully we'll soon start removing items instead
1178 of adding them.
1179
1180 29 Jan 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
1181 Changed the way GLIStorageDevice.get_max_sectors_for_resize() works
1182
1183 27 Jan 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
1184 updated TODO list. (again)
1185
1186 25 Jan 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
1187 changed output of portmap start to display_on_tty8.
1188 fixed bootloader for udev and multiple kernels
1189 fixed custom kernel config (again)
1190
1191 22 Jan 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
1192 changed default value of CC._enable_ssh to True because this is smart.
1193 added code to allow custom kernel .config. may be unstable and break. sorry.
1194
1195 21 Jan 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
1196 partition() now waits until after it checks for partition flags before delete
1197 the partitions :P
1198
1199 19 Jan 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
1200 Updated TODO. swapon failure it temporarily not an error. swapon is an error
1201 again. is_uri() check only performed on portage_tree_snapshot_uri if it isn't
1202 blank.
1203
1204 19 Jan 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
1205 Various fixes related to the add_users function. Still not yet finished.
1206 Added things to the TODO list. Lets start using that!
1207
1208 18 Jan 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
1209 Added code to x86Template to format newly created partitions. Also added
1210 some error checking code. GLIStorageDevice passes 'minor' with data to
1211 InstallProfile. Added partition() call back in ArchTemplate. Fixed NFS
1212 mounting code.
1213
1214 18 Jan 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
1215 Took out unnecessary setting of random livecd root password. the cd already
1216 sets it randomly.
1217
1218 15 Jan 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
1219 Took out an unneeded step from CC's run()
1220
1221 15 Jan 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
1222 Attempt at detecting and adding windows partitions to lilo.
1223
1224 14 Jan 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
1225 Added lilo code and cleaned up lilo code. also do_partitioning renamed to
1226 partition. fixed misc exit_status => exitstatus typo.
1227
1228 11 Jan 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
1229 Added basic code for resizing filesystems with pyparted. Fixed code for
1230 resizing ntfs and ext2/3.
1231
1232 10 Jan 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
1233 Fixed partition() in x86Template so that it scans through logicals and deletes
1234 before deleting containing extended partition. Also clears partition table to
1235 be safe before third pass.
1236
1237 08 Jan 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
1238 Added mount_network_shares. not able to test it from this computer.
1239 will test when i get back to school.
1240 also added start_portmap to the client_controller as an always-do.
1241 agaffney says this is needed for NFS mounts to work.
1242
1243 08 Jan 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
1244 Partial rewrite of partitioning code in x86Template. No longer shells out to
1245 parted to perform actions, now uses all pyparted calls. Code "works" in a
1246 test, but still needs lots of TLC. Also modified tests/install.py to work
1247 with x86Template and GLIClientConfiguration.
1248
1249 07 Jan 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
1250 Initial move of partitioning code from ArchTemplate to x86Template.
1251
1252 07 Jan 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
1253 Added grp_install and services to InstallProfile. forgot about the set_root_password
1254
1255 07 Jan 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
1256 Fixed a few more edit_configs. fixed a chroot multicommand bug thanks to agaffney.
1257 Test Install ran very well (skipping partitioning).
1258
1259 05 Jan 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
1260 My mid-day update. rewrote mount_local_partitions for order of mounting. fixed prepare_chroot
1261 rewrote configure_fstab and install_bootloader for new partition format. fixed a few _edit_configs.
1262 some may still have eluded me.
1263
1264 05 Jan 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
1265 Overhauled the entire ArchTemplate and did a lot of other misc fixes in order to test it.
1266 Just finished mount_local_partitions in GLIArchitectureTemplate
1267
1268 05 Jan 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
1269 Added get_num_sectors() to GLIStorageDevice.
1270
1271 04 Jan 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
1272 GLIStorageDevice now tracks partition boundaries in sectors instead of cylinders.
1273 Also now ignores <=100 sectors for free space. Removed remaining depends stuff
1274 from GLIInstallProfile.
1275
1276 20 Dec 2004; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
1277 GLIStorageDevice returns "unknown" instead of "" for get_type()
1278
1279 19 Dec 2004; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
1280 Added get_extended_partition() to GLIStorageDevice. Rewrote get_logicals() to
1281 actually work. Commented out resizability checking code for speed.
1282
1283 17 Dec 2004; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
1284 Switched to using dumpe2fs to determine free space left in ext2/3 filesystem in
1285 GLIStorageDevice at the suggestion of plors
1286
1287 10 Dec 2004; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
1288 Added a function to GLIUtility to pull a value from a make.conf-style config
1289 file. Minor type fix to GLIInstallProfile.py
1290
1291 09 Dec 2004; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
1292 Added code in GLIArchitectureTemplate.py to write netmounts into fstab. Separated
1293 network mounts from partition data structure in GLIInstallProfile
1294
1295 27 Nov 2004; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
1296 Changed the way GLIStorageDevice.py determines the amount a ext2/3 filesystem
1297 can be resized.
1298
1299 27 Oct 2004; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
1300 Added some of the final functions to GLIInstallTemplate.
1301 Yes this project is still active despite rare use of the Changelog!
1302
1303 11 Jun 2004; Nathaniel McCallum <npmccallum@gentoo.org>
1304 Added the GLIPartitionTools.py file. This is a temporary insertion of
1305 partitioning tools that will eventually go into their own package.
1306
1307 27 Mar 2004; Nathaniel McCallum <npmccallum@gentoo.org>
1308 Added InstallProfileTODO.txt. Added GLIClientConfiguration.py (contains run-time
1309 for the program). Added __init__(install_profile, client_configuration) to
1310 GLI.InstallProfile. This sets install_profile and client_configuration once so as
1311 to avoid constantly passing stuff every time we call a method.
1312
1313 26 Mar 2004; Nathaniel McCallum <npmccallum@gentoo.org>
1314
1315 Added another private method to GLI.InstallTemplate. _edit_config() modifies config
1316 files without messing up all the other stuff in them. This will be used for making
1317 changes to make.conf, rc.conf, /etc/conf.d/net, etc...
1318
1319 25 Mar 2004; Nathaniel McCallum <npmccallum@gentoo.org>
1320
1321 Added GLI.InstallTemplate framework. This is not yet functional. However, it does
1322 have a few basic things. I added two private methods. One is _depends(). This
1323 will be used for dependency checking (ie. unpacking a tarball requires that
1324 partitioning has been done). The other is _exec_in_chroot(). This is the exact
1325 same syntax as os.system(), however, instead of being run in the liveCD
1326 environment, it runs in the chroot. This requires a bit of fork() magic, so I
1327 isolated the code. Hope to work more this week to get this class formed...
1328
1329 14 Feb 2004; Eric Sammer <esammer@gentoo.org>
1330
1331 Added SAX parsing. Made GLI.InstallProfile a subclass of xml.sax.ContentHandler for
1332 obvious reasons. Switched kernel_modules and users to be lists instead of tuples
1333 to allow for easier modification (mutable, rather than immutable objects). Updated
1334 existing pydoc and added more. Implemented body of GLI.InstallProfile.parse().
1335 Cleaned file format of GLI.py a bit. Fixed all accessors to use self references.
1336 Added initial unit test code.
1337
1338 9 Feb 2004; Eric Sammer <esammer@gentoo.org>
1339
1340 Added initial changelog. Setting up the basic structure of the CVS repository
1341 for the project. Added the UML class diagram in docs. Added a skeletal GLI
1342 python module. Added misc files such news, authors, etc.
