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

741 successfully mounted swap device for using swapoff. Add proper error checking
742 to install_packages and install_filesystem_tools. Fixed namespace conflicts on
743 'file'. Clean up some redundant code (thanks to pychecker).'
744
745 13 Jun 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>

755 ensure PORTAGE_TMPDIR/PORT_LOGDIR/PORTDIR_OVERLAY/PKGDIR exist prior to any
756 usage - this caused a failure for stage1/stage2 previously. swapoff for swap
757 space at end of install. Mount /dev, /dev/shm, /dev/pts and /sys during
758 prepare_chroot.
759
760 11 Jun 2005; Robin H. Johnson <robbat2@gentoo.org> +src/cli/clife.py,

772 src/GLIArchitectureTemplate.py:
773 pcmcia is not a variable name for a call to _add_to_runlevel, it should be a
774 string!. Try to use binary packages if available by default.
775
776 11 Jun 2005; Robin H. Johnson <robbat2@gentoo.org>
777 src/GLIArchitectureTemplate.py:
778 More error checking for _add_to_runlevel, to ensure that the init script
779 actually exists before we try to add it. set_services phase must take place
780 after the package installation, otherwise the init scripts might not exist.
781 Find the correct init script for the cron and logging daemons, and add that
782 instead of the package atom.
783
784 11 Jun 2005; Robin H. Johnson <robbat2@gentoo.org>
785 src/GLIArchitectureTemplate.py:
786 Fix up _edit_config so that it works if the file doesn't already exist. Fix

815
816 11 Jun 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
817 Move /tmp/spawn.sh and /tmp/post-install to /var/tmp since that should always
818 be executable.
819
820 10 Jun 2005; Scott Myron <samyron@gentoo.org>
821 Fixed one of the FIXME's in the ClientConfiguration. There is now some
822 error checking when you call set_architecture_template.
823
824 10 Jun 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
825 moved the mkfsopts input to the partition options menu instead of the during
826 the creation process. updated GenDialog to say it supports reiserfs v3.

997 code.
998
999 16 Apr 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
1000 Changed _edit_config() to modify value in-place instead of commenting out and
1001 adding the new value to the end of the file.
1002
1003 15 Apr 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
1004 Back. Did the docuementation thang for ArchTemplate and ClientConfiguration.

1010
1011 13 Apr 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
1012 Moved 'end >= device_sectors' check out of loop to check for next partition's
1013 start point (thanks to Marco Djukic). Fix >4 primary partitions on non-x86.
1014 Partitioning code now tracks start/end of extended for placing logicals. End
1015 point of logical is now adjusted along with start.
1016
1017 11 Apr 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
1018 Finish overhaul of backend partitioning code. Fixed all bugs that stood in
1019 the way of partitioning from a blank disk. Add int() around access to minor
1020 key in partition information due to new partition code leaving them as float.
1021
1022 10 Apr 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
1023 tidy_partitions() function in GLIStorageDevice. Tweaks to tidy code
1024
1025 9 Apr 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
1026 Major GLIStorageDevice overhaul...all MB now instead of sectors.
1027

1029 Added support for DHCP options and MAC addresses in the InstallProfile.
1030
1031 3 Apr 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
1032 Changed mountopts check to work for blank and whitespace. Pipe emerge through
1033 sed to properly strip out junk.
1034
1035 2 Apr 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
1036 fixed the way set_timezone works. added hotplug/coldplug for livecd-kernel

1038
1039 31 Mar 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
1040 Fixed indent problem in GLICController
1041

1044
1045 29 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
1046 Remove /tmp/compile_output.log and /var/log/install.log when install is
1047 complete. Added code to (hopefully) keep 2nd thread running after install.
1048 Patch from zahna for extra arguments to the kernel. Patch from zahna to add
1049 get_eth_info() function. Remove most of content in amd64ArchTemplate and
1050 make it inherit from x86Archtemplate. kernel_args -> bootloader_kernel_args
1051
1052 28 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
1053 Added 'append_log=True' to all spawn() calls using logfile=. Append to log
1054 when unpacking tarball.
1055
1056 28 Mar 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
1057 rewrote filesystem_tools. looks like it works so ripping out all the old
1058 filesystem_tools code.
1059
1060 26 Mar 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
1061 Changed the print statements to logging in the partitioning BE code.
1062 the logger may need to be imported to the x86archtemplate. unknown yet.
1063 Added the finishing_cleanup function.
1064 added a fix to the logger from BenUrban
1065
1066 25 Mar 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
1067 changed InstallProfile to remove is_uri check on kernel, stage, and portage
1068 URIs. The blank uri check has been commented out.
1069 ripped out error checking of set_services. this is done by _add_to_runlevel.
1070
1071 25 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
1072 set_stage_tarball_uri() doesn't raise an exception on a blank string.
1073
1074 24 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
1075 GRP-ish quickpkg code pulls PKGDIR and PORTAGE_TMPDIR from make.conf info in
1076 the install profile if available. Commented out spawn() debugging prints
1077
1078 23 Mar 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
1079 small changes to setup_network_post. moved adding to runlevel of net.x to
1080 after the device gets symlinked. added domainname runlevel command.
1081
1082 23 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
1083 minor fix (hopefully) to livecd-kernel code. Removed call to mkvardb in
1084 livecd-kernel code as it's now done by catalyst. Switch _emerge() call to
1085 spawn() call in livecd-kernel code to pass environment variables.
1086 livecd-kernel code pulls PKGDIR and PORTAGE_TMPDIR from make.conf info in
1087 the install profile if available.
1088
1089 23 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
1090 Added code to build_kernel() and emerge_kernel_sources() in ArchTemplate
1091 to handle installing the livecd kernel into the new system.
1092
1093 22 Mar 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
1094 should emerge hotplug and coldplug before adding them to runlevel.
1095
1096 21 Mar 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
1097 took chroot out of grub_install command.
1098
1099 21 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
1100 Changed chroot wrapper code in spawn() to write the wrapper the python way
1101 instead of the bash way to avoid quote conflicts. Added
1102 'logfile=self._compile_logfile' to a number of spawn() calls. Added new
1103 hash_password() function to GLIUtility. Remove command to 'rm /tmp/spawn.sh'
1104 as it breaks the piping.
1105
1106 20 Mar 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
1107 Added the amd64ArchitectureTemplate, mostly a copy of x86 without lilo.
1108
1109 20 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
1110 Added _get_packages_to_emerge() to GLIArchitectureTemplate and calls in
1111 stage1() and stage2(). Added 'origminor' parameter to GLIStorageDevice and
1112 GLIInstallProfile.
1113
1114 19 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
1115 Fixed a couple bugs in add_netmount() in GLIInstallProfile. spawn() outputs
1116 to the actual tty8 with display_on_tty8 flag. Compile output logfile moved
1117 into /mnt/gentoo in prepare_chroot()
1118
1119 18 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
1120 Add sigunmask.c contributed by d_m (on freenode) to counteract python's
1121 retarted behavior regarding threads and signals. Add code to convert MB/%/*
1122 to start/end sectors
1123
1124 17 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
1125 Add 2>&1 to cmd in spawn()
1126
1127 16 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
1128 Modified GLIUtility.exitsuccess() to work with return value from
1129 commands.getstatusoutput instead of os.waitpid(). spawn() automatically
1130 creates wrapper script for commands run inside chroot so multiple commands
1131 and redirection can be used. Change exitsuccess() back. Added 'chmod a+x'
1132 for the generated script from spawn()
1133
1134 16 Mar 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
1135 Removed default values for stage tarball URI and portage tree URI from
1136 InstallProfile. These should be set by the FEs. also added services step to
1137 ArchTemplate and coldplug/hotplug runlevels to the genkernel step.
1138 Possibly fixed CC DHCP bug with -n. (thx agaffney)
1139
1140 14 Mar 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
1141 Small fix for setting the default gateway. Also added feature to dialogfe.
1142
1143 7 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
1144 Switched spawn() over to commands.getstatusoutput() instead of fork/waitpid
1145
1146 1 Mar 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
1147 Fixed a bunch of true -> True typos. lots of em
1148 only write new resolv.conf if there are dns servers listed.
1149
1150 1 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
1151 Commented out 'display_on_tty8=True' in start_portmap()
1152
1153 18 Feb 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
1154 added progress bar to dialogfe and fix logger bug in ArchTemplate.
1155
1156 18 Feb 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
1157 Created GLISayWhat module. Renamed GLISayWhat to GLILocalization. Moved
1158 lang parameter to __init__()
1159
1160 10 Feb 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
1161 updates to TODO list.
1162
1163 6 Feb 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
1164 Initial code for quickpkg GRP support. Fix loop to grab packages from
1165 'emerge -p blah'
1166
1167 6 Feb 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
1168 check for dhcp in the network stuff and emerge it if it is.
1169 added quickpkg to TODO list
1170
1171 5 Feb 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
1172 Changed the raising of 'warning' exceptions to a simple log of the error
1173 so that the installer can continue.
1174
1175 3 Feb 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
1176 Some big changes. First, changed most output to display_on_tty8.
1177 Second, added log lines to all templates. Some smaller fixes such as typos.
1178 Also did some cleanups of old commented lines.
1179
1180 1 Feb 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
1181 Changed tty8 output to a fifo. Minor GLIStorageDevice fix thanks to BenUrban.
1182 Undo change with fix. Escaping fix in GLIStorageDevice.py
1183
1184 31 Jan 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
1185 more updates to TODO list. hopefully we'll soon start removing items instead
1186 of adding them.
1187
1188 29 Jan 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
1189 Changed the way GLIStorageDevice.get_max_sectors_for_resize() works
1190
1191 27 Jan 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
1192 updated TODO list. (again)
1193
1194 25 Jan 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
1195 changed output of portmap start to display_on_tty8.
1196 fixed bootloader for udev and multiple kernels
1197 fixed custom kernel config (again)
1198
1199 22 Jan 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
1200 changed default value of CC._enable_ssh to True because this is smart.
1201 added code to allow custom kernel .config. may be unstable and break. sorry.
1202
1203 21 Jan 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
1204 partition() now waits until after it checks for partition flags before delete
1205 the partitions :P
1206
1207 19 Jan 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
1208 Updated TODO. swapon failure it temporarily not an error. swapon is an error
1209 again. is_uri() check only performed on portage_tree_snapshot_uri if it isn't
1210 blank.
1211
1212 19 Jan 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
1213 Various fixes related to the add_users function. Still not yet finished.
1214 Added things to the TODO list. Lets start using that!
1215
1216 18 Jan 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
1217 Added code to x86Template to format newly created partitions. Also added
1218 some error checking code. GLIStorageDevice passes 'minor' with data to
1219 InstallProfile. Added partition() call back in ArchTemplate. Fixed NFS
1220 mounting code.
1221
1222 18 Jan 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
1223 Took out unnecessary setting of random livecd root password. the cd already
1224 sets it randomly.
1225
1226 15 Jan 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
1227 Took out an unneeded step from CC's run()
1228
1229 15 Jan 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
1230 Attempt at detecting and adding windows partitions to lilo.
1231
1232 14 Jan 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
1233 Added lilo code and cleaned up lilo code. also do_partitioning renamed to
1234 partition. fixed misc exit_status => exitstatus typo.
1235
1236 11 Jan 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
1237 Added basic code for resizing filesystems with pyparted. Fixed code for
1238 resizing ntfs and ext2/3.
1239
1240 10 Jan 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
1241 Fixed partition() in x86Template so that it scans through logicals and deletes
1242 before deleting containing extended partition. Also clears partition table to
1243 be safe before third pass.
1244
1245 08 Jan 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
1246 Added mount_network_shares. not able to test it from this computer.
1247 will test when i get back to school.
1248 also added start_portmap to the client_controller as an always-do.
1249 agaffney says this is needed for NFS mounts to work.
1250
1251 08 Jan 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
1252 Partial rewrite of partitioning code in x86Template. No longer shells out to
1253 parted to perform actions, now uses all pyparted calls. Code "works" in a
1254 test, but still needs lots of TLC. Also modified tests/install.py to work
1255 with x86Template and GLIClientConfiguration.
1256
1257 07 Jan 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
1258 Initial move of partitioning code from ArchTemplate to x86Template.
1259
1260 07 Jan 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
1261 Added grp_install and services to InstallProfile. forgot about the set_root_password
1262
1263 07 Jan 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
1264 Fixed a few more edit_configs. fixed a chroot multicommand bug thanks to agaffney.
1265 Test Install ran very well (skipping partitioning).
1266
1267 05 Jan 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
1268 My mid-day update. rewrote mount_local_partitions for order of mounting. fixed prepare_chroot
1269 rewrote configure_fstab and install_bootloader for new partition format. fixed a few _edit_configs.
1270 some may still have eluded me.
1271
1272 05 Jan 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
1273 Overhauled the entire ArchTemplate and did a lot of other misc fixes in order to test it.
1274 Just finished mount_local_partitions in GLIArchitectureTemplate
1275
1276 05 Jan 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
1277 Added get_num_sectors() to GLIStorageDevice.
1278
1279 04 Jan 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
1280 GLIStorageDevice now tracks partition boundaries in sectors instead of cylinders.
1281 Also now ignores <=100 sectors for free space. Removed remaining depends stuff
1282 from GLIInstallProfile.
1283
1284 20 Dec 2004; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
1285 GLIStorageDevice returns "unknown" instead of "" for get_type()
1286
1287 19 Dec 2004; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
1288 Added get_extended_partition() to GLIStorageDevice. Rewrote get_logicals() to
1289 actually work. Commented out resizability checking code for speed.
1290
1291 17 Dec 2004; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
1292 Switched to using dumpe2fs to determine free space left in ext2/3 filesystem in
1293 GLIStorageDevice at the suggestion of plors
1294
1295 10 Dec 2004; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
1296 Added a function to GLIUtility to pull a value from a make.conf-style config
1297 file. Minor type fix to GLIInstallProfile.py
1298
1299 09 Dec 2004; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
1300 Added code in GLIArchitectureTemplate.py to write netmounts into fstab. Separated
1301 network mounts from partition data structure in GLIInstallProfile
1302
1303 27 Nov 2004; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
1304 Changed the way GLIStorageDevice.py determines the amount a ext2/3 filesystem
1305 can be resized.
1306
1307 27 Oct 2004; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
1308 Added some of the final functions to GLIInstallTemplate.
1309 Yes this project is still active despite rare use of the Changelog!
1310
1311 11 Jun 2004; Nathaniel McCallum <npmccallum@gentoo.org>
1312 Added the GLIPartitionTools.py file. This is a temporary insertion of
1313 partitioning tools that will eventually go into their own package.
1314
1315 27 Mar 2004; Nathaniel McCallum <npmccallum@gentoo.org>
1316 Added InstallProfileTODO.txt. Added GLIClientConfiguration.py (contains run-time
1317 for the program). Added __init__(install_profile, client_configuration) to
1318 GLI.InstallProfile. This sets install_profile and client_configuration once so as
1319 to avoid constantly passing stuff every time we call a method.
1320
1321 26 Mar 2004; Nathaniel McCallum <npmccallum@gentoo.org>
1322
1323 Added another private method to GLI.InstallTemplate. _edit_config() modifies config
1324 files without messing up all the other stuff in them. This will be used for making
1325 changes to make.conf, rc.conf, /etc/conf.d/net, etc...
1326
1327 25 Mar 2004; Nathaniel McCallum <npmccallum@gentoo.org>
1328
1329 Added GLI.InstallTemplate framework. This is not yet functional. However, it does
1330 have a few basic things. I added two private methods. One is _depends(). This
1331 will be used for dependency checking (ie. unpacking a tarball requires that
1332 partitioning has been done). The other is _exec_in_chroot(). This is the exact
1333 same syntax as os.system(), however, instead of being run in the liveCD
1334 environment, it runs in the chroot. This requires a bit of fork() magic, so I
1335 isolated the code. Hope to work more this week to get this class formed...
1336
1337 14 Feb 2004; Eric Sammer <esammer@gentoo.org>
1338
1339 Added SAX parsing. Made GLI.InstallProfile a subclass of xml.sax.ContentHandler for
1340 obvious reasons. Switched kernel_modules and users to be lists instead of tuples
1341 to allow for easier modification (mutable, rather than immutable objects). Updated
1342 existing pydoc and added more. Implemented body of GLI.InstallProfile.parse().
1343 Cleaned file format of GLI.py a bit. Fixed all accessors to use self references.
1344 Added initial unit test code.
1345
1346 9 Feb 2004; Eric Sammer <esammer@gentoo.org>
1347
1348 Added initial changelog. Setting up the basic structure of the CVS repository
1349 for the project. Added the UML class diagram in docs. Added a skeletal GLI
1350 python module. Added misc files such news, authors, etc.
