717
718 14 Jun 2005; Robin H. Johnson <robbat2@gentoo.org>
719 src/GLIInstallProfile.py:
720 Change structure of etc-portage stuff. The serialization was broken before my
721 last commit, and I am the only person that's ever used it. The new schema is
722 as follows:
723 <etc-portage>
724 <file name="package.mask"/>
725 <file name="package.unmask">
726 <entry atom="sys-kernel/openmosix-sources"/>
727 </file>
728 <file name="package.use">
729 <entry atom="sys-libs/db">
730 -java
731 </entry>
732 <entry atom="dev-libs/cyrus-sasl">

748 was repeatedly appended to make.conf.
749
750 13 Jun 2005; Robin H. Johnson <robbat2@gentoo.org>
751 src/GLIArchitectureTemplate.py:
752 Put some Linux-2.6 specific code under a if statement. Store list of
753 successfully mounted swap device for using swapoff. Add proper error checking
754 to install_packages and install_filesystem_tools. Fixed namespace conflicts on
755 'file'. Clean up some redundant code (thanks to pychecker).'
756
757 13 Jun 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>

767 ensure PORTAGE_TMPDIR/PORT_LOGDIR/PORTDIR_OVERLAY/PKGDIR exist prior to any
768 usage - this caused a failure for stage1/stage2 previously. swapoff for swap
769 space at end of install. Mount /dev, /dev/shm, /dev/pts and /sys during
770 prepare_chroot.
771
772 11 Jun 2005; Robin H. Johnson <robbat2@gentoo.org> +src/cli/clife.py,

782
783 11 Jun 2005; Robin H. Johnson <robbat2@gentoo.org>
784 src/GLIArchitectureTemplate.py:
785 pcmcia is not a variable name for a call to _add_to_runlevel, it should be a
786 string!. Try to use binary packages if available by default.
787
788 11 Jun 2005; Robin H. Johnson <robbat2@gentoo.org>
789 src/GLIArchitectureTemplate.py:
790 More error checking for _add_to_runlevel, to ensure that the init script
791 actually exists before we try to add it. set_services phase must take place
792 after the package installation, otherwise the init scripts might not exist.
793 Find the correct init script for the cron and logging daemons, and add that
794 instead of the package atom.
795
796 11 Jun 2005; Robin H. Johnson <robbat2@gentoo.org>
797 src/GLIArchitectureTemplate.py:
798 Fix up _edit_config so that it works if the file doesn't already exist. Fix

827
828 11 Jun 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
829 Move /tmp/spawn.sh and /tmp/post-install to /var/tmp since that should always
830 be executable.
831
832 10 Jun 2005; Scott Myron <samyron@gentoo.org>
833 Fixed one of the FIXME's in the ClientConfiguration. There is now some
834 error checking when you call set_architecture_template.
835
836 10 Jun 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
837 moved the mkfsopts input to the partition options menu instead of the during
838 the creation process. updated GenDialog to say it supports reiserfs v3.
839

947
948 10 May 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
949 Added GLIGenDialog.py to make a generic class for the dialog functions that
950 can be used by both dialogfe and the netfe/be. updated both for new filename.

1009 code.
1010
1011 16 Apr 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
1012 Changed _edit_config() to modify value in-place instead of commenting out and
1013 adding the new value to the end of the file.
1014
1015 15 Apr 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
1016 Back. Did the docuementation thang for ArchTemplate and ClientConfiguration.

1018
1019 14 Apr 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
1020 Use blackace's one-liner to add comments for all function for use with
1021 pythondoc.
1022
1023 13 Apr 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
1024 Moved 'end >= device_sectors' check out of loop to check for next partition's
1025 start point (thanks to Marco Djukic). Fix >4 primary partitions on non-x86.
1026 Partitioning code now tracks start/end of extended for placing logicals. End
1027 point of logical is now adjusted along with start.
1028
1029 11 Apr 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
1030 Finish overhaul of backend partitioning code. Fixed all bugs that stood in
1031 the way of partitioning from a blank disk. Add int() around access to minor
1032 key in partition information due to new partition code leaving them as float.
1033
1034 10 Apr 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
1035 tidy_partitions() function in GLIStorageDevice. Tweaks to tidy code

1041 Added support for DHCP options and MAC addresses in the InstallProfile.
1042
1043 3 Apr 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
1044 Changed mountopts check to work for blank and whitespace. Pipe emerge through
1045 sed to properly strip out junk.
1046
1047 2 Apr 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
1048 fixed the way set_timezone works. added hotplug/coldplug for livecd-kernel

1050
1051 31 Mar 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
1052 Fixed indent problem in GLICController
1053
1054 30 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>

1056
1057 29 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
1058 Remove /tmp/compile_output.log and /var/log/install.log when install is
1059 complete. Added code to (hopefully) keep 2nd thread running after install.
1060 Patch from zahna for extra arguments to the kernel. Patch from zahna to add
1061 get_eth_info() function. Remove most of content in amd64ArchTemplate and
1062 make it inherit from x86Archtemplate. kernel_args -> bootloader_kernel_args
1063
1064 28 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
1065 Added 'append_log=True' to all spawn() calls using logfile=. Append to log
1066 when unpacking tarball.
1067
1068 28 Mar 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
1069 rewrote filesystem_tools. looks like it works so ripping out all the old
1070 filesystem_tools code.
1071
1072 26 Mar 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
1073 Changed the print statements to logging in the partitioning BE code.
1074 the logger may need to be imported to the x86archtemplate. unknown yet.
1075 Added the finishing_cleanup function.
1076 added a fix to the logger from BenUrban
1077
1078 25 Mar 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
1079 changed InstallProfile to remove is_uri check on kernel, stage, and portage
1080 URIs. The blank uri check has been commented out.
1081 ripped out error checking of set_services. this is done by _add_to_runlevel.
1082
1083 25 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
1084 set_stage_tarball_uri() doesn't raise an exception on a blank string.
1085
1086 24 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
1087 GRP-ish quickpkg code pulls PKGDIR and PORTAGE_TMPDIR from make.conf info in
1088 the install profile if available. Commented out spawn() debugging prints
1089
1090 23 Mar 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
1091 small changes to setup_network_post. moved adding to runlevel of net.x to
1092 after the device gets symlinked. added domainname runlevel command.
1093
1094 23 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
1095 minor fix (hopefully) to livecd-kernel code. Removed call to mkvardb in
1096 livecd-kernel code as it's now done by catalyst. Switch _emerge() call to
1097 spawn() call in livecd-kernel code to pass environment variables.
1098 livecd-kernel code pulls PKGDIR and PORTAGE_TMPDIR from make.conf info in
1099 the install profile if available.
1100
1101 23 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
1102 Added code to build_kernel() and emerge_kernel_sources() in ArchTemplate
1103 to handle installing the livecd kernel into the new system.
1104
1105 22 Mar 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
1106 should emerge hotplug and coldplug before adding them to runlevel.
1107
1108 21 Mar 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
1109 took chroot out of grub_install command.
1110
1111 21 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
1112 Changed chroot wrapper code in spawn() to write the wrapper the python way
1113 instead of the bash way to avoid quote conflicts. Added
1114 'logfile=self._compile_logfile' to a number of spawn() calls. Added new
1115 hash_password() function to GLIUtility. Remove command to 'rm /tmp/spawn.sh'
1116 as it breaks the piping.
1117
1118 20 Mar 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
1119 Added the amd64ArchitectureTemplate, mostly a copy of x86 without lilo.
1120
1121 20 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
1122 Added _get_packages_to_emerge() to GLIArchitectureTemplate and calls in
1123 stage1() and stage2(). Added 'origminor' parameter to GLIStorageDevice and
1124 GLIInstallProfile.
1125
1126 19 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
1127 Fixed a couple bugs in add_netmount() in GLIInstallProfile. spawn() outputs
1128 to the actual tty8 with display_on_tty8 flag. Compile output logfile moved
1129 into /mnt/gentoo in prepare_chroot()
1130
1131 18 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
1132 Add sigunmask.c contributed by d_m (on freenode) to counteract python's
1133 retarted behavior regarding threads and signals. Add code to convert MB/%/*
1134 to start/end sectors
1135
1136 17 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
1137 Add 2>&1 to cmd in spawn()
1138
1139 16 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
1140 Modified GLIUtility.exitsuccess() to work with return value from
1141 commands.getstatusoutput instead of os.waitpid(). spawn() automatically
1142 creates wrapper script for commands run inside chroot so multiple commands
1143 and redirection can be used. Change exitsuccess() back. Added 'chmod a+x'
1144 for the generated script from spawn()
1145
1146 16 Mar 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
1147 Removed default values for stage tarball URI and portage tree URI from
1148 InstallProfile. These should be set by the FEs. also added services step to
1149 ArchTemplate and coldplug/hotplug runlevels to the genkernel step.
1150 Possibly fixed CC DHCP bug with -n. (thx agaffney)
1151
1152 14 Mar 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
1153 Small fix for setting the default gateway. Also added feature to dialogfe.
1154
1155 7 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
1156 Switched spawn() over to commands.getstatusoutput() instead of fork/waitpid
1157
1158 1 Mar 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
1159 Fixed a bunch of true -> True typos. lots of em
1160 only write new resolv.conf if there are dns servers listed.
1161
1162 1 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
1163 Commented out 'display_on_tty8=True' in start_portmap()
1164
1165 18 Feb 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
1166 added progress bar to dialogfe and fix logger bug in ArchTemplate.
1167
1168 18 Feb 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
1169 Created GLISayWhat module. Renamed GLISayWhat to GLILocalization. Moved
1170 lang parameter to __init__()
1171
1172 10 Feb 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
1173 updates to TODO list.
1174
1175 6 Feb 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
1176 Initial code for quickpkg GRP support. Fix loop to grab packages from
1177 'emerge -p blah'
1178
1179 6 Feb 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
1180 check for dhcp in the network stuff and emerge it if it is.
1181 added quickpkg to TODO list
1182
1183 5 Feb 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
1184 Changed the raising of 'warning' exceptions to a simple log of the error
1185 so that the installer can continue.
1186
1187 3 Feb 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
1188 Some big changes. First, changed most output to display_on_tty8.
1189 Second, added log lines to all templates. Some smaller fixes such as typos.
1190 Also did some cleanups of old commented lines.
1191
1192 1 Feb 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
1193 Changed tty8 output to a fifo. Minor GLIStorageDevice fix thanks to BenUrban.
1194 Undo change with fix. Escaping fix in GLIStorageDevice.py
1195
1196 31 Jan 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
1197 more updates to TODO list. hopefully we'll soon start removing items instead
1198 of adding them.
1199
1200 29 Jan 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
1201 Changed the way GLIStorageDevice.get_max_sectors_for_resize() works
1202
1203 27 Jan 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
1204 updated TODO list. (again)
1205
1206 25 Jan 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
1207 changed output of portmap start to display_on_tty8.
1208 fixed bootloader for udev and multiple kernels
1209 fixed custom kernel config (again)
1210
1211 22 Jan 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
1212 changed default value of CC._enable_ssh to True because this is smart.
1213 added code to allow custom kernel .config. may be unstable and break. sorry.
1214
1215 21 Jan 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
1216 partition() now waits until after it checks for partition flags before delete
1217 the partitions :P
1218
1219 19 Jan 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
1220 Updated TODO. swapon failure it temporarily not an error. swapon is an error
1221 again. is_uri() check only performed on portage_tree_snapshot_uri if it isn't
1222 blank.
1223
1224 19 Jan 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
1225 Various fixes related to the add_users function. Still not yet finished.
1226 Added things to the TODO list. Lets start using that!
1227
1228 18 Jan 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
1229 Added code to x86Template to format newly created partitions. Also added
1230 some error checking code. GLIStorageDevice passes 'minor' with data to
1231 InstallProfile. Added partition() call back in ArchTemplate. Fixed NFS
1232 mounting code.
1233
1234 18 Jan 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
1235 Took out unnecessary setting of random livecd root password. the cd already
1236 sets it randomly.
1237
1238 15 Jan 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
1239 Took out an unneeded step from CC's run()
1240
1241 15 Jan 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
1242 Attempt at detecting and adding windows partitions to lilo.
1243
1244 14 Jan 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
1245 Added lilo code and cleaned up lilo code. also do_partitioning renamed to
1246 partition. fixed misc exit_status => exitstatus typo.
1247
1248 11 Jan 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
1249 Added basic code for resizing filesystems with pyparted. Fixed code for
1250 resizing ntfs and ext2/3.
1251
1252 10 Jan 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
1253 Fixed partition() in x86Template so that it scans through logicals and deletes
1254 before deleting containing extended partition. Also clears partition table to
1255 be safe before third pass.
1256
1257 08 Jan 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
1258 Added mount_network_shares. not able to test it from this computer.
1259 will test when i get back to school.
1260 also added start_portmap to the client_controller as an always-do.
1261 agaffney says this is needed for NFS mounts to work.
1262
1263 08 Jan 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
1264 Partial rewrite of partitioning code in x86Template. No longer shells out to
1265 parted to perform actions, now uses all pyparted calls. Code "works" in a
1266 test, but still needs lots of TLC. Also modified tests/install.py to work
1267 with x86Template and GLIClientConfiguration.
1268
1269 07 Jan 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
1270 Initial move of partitioning code from ArchTemplate to x86Template.
1271
1272 07 Jan 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
1273 Added grp_install and services to InstallProfile. forgot about the set_root_password
1274
1275 07 Jan 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
1276 Fixed a few more edit_configs. fixed a chroot multicommand bug thanks to agaffney.
1277 Test Install ran very well (skipping partitioning).
1278
1279 05 Jan 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
1280 My mid-day update. rewrote mount_local_partitions for order of mounting. fixed prepare_chroot
1281 rewrote configure_fstab and install_bootloader for new partition format. fixed a few _edit_configs.
1282 some may still have eluded me.
1283
1284 05 Jan 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
1285 Overhauled the entire ArchTemplate and did a lot of other misc fixes in order to test it.
1286 Just finished mount_local_partitions in GLIArchitectureTemplate
1287
1288 05 Jan 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
1289 Added get_num_sectors() to GLIStorageDevice.
1290
1291 04 Jan 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
1292 GLIStorageDevice now tracks partition boundaries in sectors instead of cylinders.
1293 Also now ignores <=100 sectors for free space. Removed remaining depends stuff
1294 from GLIInstallProfile.
1295
1296 20 Dec 2004; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
1297 GLIStorageDevice returns "unknown" instead of "" for get_type()
1298
1299 19 Dec 2004; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
1300 Added get_extended_partition() to GLIStorageDevice. Rewrote get_logicals() to
1301 actually work. Commented out resizability checking code for speed.
1302
1303 17 Dec 2004; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
1304 Switched to using dumpe2fs to determine free space left in ext2/3 filesystem in
1305 GLIStorageDevice at the suggestion of plors
1306
1307 10 Dec 2004; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
1308 Added a function to GLIUtility to pull a value from a make.conf-style config
1309 file. Minor type fix to GLIInstallProfile.py
1310
1311 09 Dec 2004; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
1312 Added code in GLIArchitectureTemplate.py to write netmounts into fstab. Separated
1313 network mounts from partition data structure in GLIInstallProfile
1314
1315 27 Nov 2004; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
1316 Changed the way GLIStorageDevice.py determines the amount a ext2/3 filesystem
1317 can be resized.
1318
1319 27 Oct 2004; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
1320 Added some of the final functions to GLIInstallTemplate.
1321 Yes this project is still active despite rare use of the Changelog!
1322
1323 11 Jun 2004; Nathaniel McCallum <npmccallum@gentoo.org>
1324 Added the GLIPartitionTools.py file. This is a temporary insertion of
1325 partitioning tools that will eventually go into their own package.
1326
1327 27 Mar 2004; Nathaniel McCallum <npmccallum@gentoo.org>
1328 Added InstallProfileTODO.txt. Added GLIClientConfiguration.py (contains run-time
1329 for the program). Added __init__(install_profile, client_configuration) to
1330 GLI.InstallProfile. This sets install_profile and client_configuration once so as
1331 to avoid constantly passing stuff every time we call a method.
1332
1333 26 Mar 2004; Nathaniel McCallum <npmccallum@gentoo.org>
1334
1335 Added another private method to GLI.InstallTemplate. _edit_config() modifies config
1336 files without messing up all the other stuff in them. This will be used for making
1337 changes to make.conf, rc.conf, /etc/conf.d/net, etc...
1338
1339 25 Mar 2004; Nathaniel McCallum <npmccallum@gentoo.org>
1340
1341 Added GLI.InstallTemplate framework. This is not yet functional. However, it does
1342 have a few basic things. I added two private methods. One is _depends(). This
1343 will be used for dependency checking (ie. unpacking a tarball requires that
1344 partitioning has been done). The other is _exec_in_chroot(). This is the exact
1345 same syntax as os.system(), however, instead of being run in the liveCD
1346 environment, it runs in the chroot. This requires a bit of fork() magic, so I
1347 isolated the code. Hope to work more this week to get this class formed...
1348
1349 14 Feb 2004; Eric Sammer <esammer@gentoo.org>
1350
1351 Added SAX parsing. Made GLI.InstallProfile a subclass of xml.sax.ContentHandler for
1352 obvious reasons. Switched kernel_modules and users to be lists instead of tuples
1353 to allow for easier modification (mutable, rather than immutable objects). Updated
1354 existing pydoc and added more. Implemented body of GLI.InstallProfile.parse().
1355 Cleaned file format of GLI.py a bit. Fixed all accessors to use self references.
1356 Added initial unit test code.
