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

711 defaults to "" now instead of "msdos" for disklabel type. Fix for
712 mount_local_partitions() to remember device along with minor in the
713 parts_to_mount dict (closes #96319). mount_local_partitions() cleanups and
714 add else block to log unsupported netmount types to mount_network_shares()

734
735 14 Jun 2005; Robin H. Johnson <robbat2@gentoo.org>
736 src/GLIInstallProfile.py:
737 Change structure of etc-portage stuff. The serialization was broken before my
738 last commit, and I am the only person that's ever used it. The new schema is
739 as follows:
740 <etc-portage>
741 <file name="package.mask"/>
742 <file name="package.unmask">
743 <entry atom="sys-kernel/openmosix-sources"/>
744 </file>
745 <file name="package.use">
746 <entry atom="sys-libs/db">
747 -java
748 </entry>

765 was repeatedly appended to make.conf.
766
767 13 Jun 2005; Robin H. Johnson <robbat2@gentoo.org>
768 src/GLIArchitectureTemplate.py:
769 Put some Linux-2.6 specific code under a if statement. Store list of
770 successfully mounted swap device for using swapoff. Add proper error checking
771 to install_packages and install_filesystem_tools. Fixed namespace conflicts on
772 'file'. Clean up some redundant code (thanks to pychecker).'
773
774 13 Jun 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>

780 GLIInstallProfile.py: add missing set for dhcp_options if a tuple is passed
781 in add_network_interface.
782
783 12 Jun 2005; Robin H. Johnson <robbat2@gentoo.org> src/GLIArchitectureTemplate.py:
784 ensure PORTAGE_TMPDIR/PORT_LOGDIR/PORTDIR_OVERLAY/PKGDIR exist prior to any
785 usage - this caused a failure for stage1/stage2 previously. swapoff for swap
786 space at end of install. Mount /dev, /dev/shm, /dev/pts and /sys during
787 prepare_chroot.
788
789 11 Jun 2005; Robin H. Johnson <robbat2@gentoo.org> +src/cli/clife.py,

799
800 11 Jun 2005; Robin H. Johnson <robbat2@gentoo.org>
801 src/GLIArchitectureTemplate.py:
802 pcmcia is not a variable name for a call to _add_to_runlevel, it should be a
803 string!. Try to use binary packages if available by default.
804
805 11 Jun 2005; Robin H. Johnson <robbat2@gentoo.org>
806 src/GLIArchitectureTemplate.py:
807 More error checking for _add_to_runlevel, to ensure that the init script
808 actually exists before we try to add it. set_services phase must take place
809 after the package installation, otherwise the init scripts might not exist.
810 Find the correct init script for the cron and logging daemons, and add that
811 instead of the package atom.
812
813 11 Jun 2005; Robin H. Johnson <robbat2@gentoo.org>
814 src/GLIArchitectureTemplate.py:
815 Fix up _edit_config so that it works if the file doesn't already exist. Fix

844
845 11 Jun 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
846 Move /tmp/spawn.sh and /tmp/post-install to /var/tmp since that should always
847 be executable.
848
849 10 Jun 2005; Scott Myron <samyron@gentoo.org>
850 Fixed one of the FIXME's in the ClientConfiguration. There is now some
851 error checking when you call set_architecture_template.
852
853 10 Jun 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
854 moved the mkfsopts input to the partition options menu instead of the during
855 the creation process. updated GenDialog to say it supports reiserfs v3.
856

1028 16 Apr 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
1029 Changed _edit_config() to modify value in-place instead of commenting out and
1030 adding the new value to the end of the file.
1031
1032 15 Apr 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
1033 Back. Did the docuementation thang for ArchTemplate and ClientConfiguration.

1040 13 Apr 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
1041 Moved 'end >= device_sectors' check out of loop to check for next partition's
1042 start point (thanks to Marco Djukic). Fix >4 primary partitions on non-x86.

1045
1046 11 Apr 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
1047 Finish overhaul of backend partitioning code. Fixed all bugs that stood in
1048 the way of partitioning from a blank disk. Add int() around access to minor

1050
1051 10 Apr 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
1052 tidy_partitions() function in GLIStorageDevice. Tweaks to tidy code

1076 complete. Added code to (hopefully) keep 2nd thread running after install.
1077 Patch from zahna for extra arguments to the kernel. Patch from zahna to add
1078 get_eth_info() function. Remove most of content in amd64ArchTemplate and
1079 make it inherit from x86Archtemplate. kernel_args -> bootloader_kernel_args
1080
1081 28 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
1082 Added 'append_log=True' to all spawn() calls using logfile=. Append to log
1083 when unpacking tarball.
1084
1085 28 Mar 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
1086 rewrote filesystem_tools. looks like it works so ripping out all the old
1087 filesystem_tools code.
1088
1089 26 Mar 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
1090 Changed the print statements to logging in the partitioning BE code.

1094
1095 25 Mar 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
1096 changed InstallProfile to remove is_uri check on kernel, stage, and portage
1097 URIs. The blank uri check has been commented out.
1098 ripped out error checking of set_services. this is done by _add_to_runlevel.
1099
1100 25 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
1101 set_stage_tarball_uri() doesn't raise an exception on a blank string.
1102
1103 24 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
1104 GRP-ish quickpkg code pulls PKGDIR and PORTAGE_TMPDIR from make.conf info in
1105 the install profile if available. Commented out spawn() debugging prints
1106
1107 23 Mar 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
1108 small changes to setup_network_post. moved adding to runlevel of net.x to
1109 after the device gets symlinked. added domainname runlevel command.
1110
1111 23 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
1112 minor fix (hopefully) to livecd-kernel code. Removed call to mkvardb in
1113 livecd-kernel code as it's now done by catalyst. Switch _emerge() call to
1114 spawn() call in livecd-kernel code to pass environment variables.
1115 livecd-kernel code pulls PKGDIR and PORTAGE_TMPDIR from make.conf info in
1116 the install profile if available.
1117
1118 23 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
1119 Added code to build_kernel() and emerge_kernel_sources() in ArchTemplate
1120 to handle installing the livecd kernel into the new system.
1121
1122 22 Mar 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
1123 should emerge hotplug and coldplug before adding them to runlevel.
1124
1125 21 Mar 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
1126 took chroot out of grub_install command.
1127
1128 21 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
1129 Changed chroot wrapper code in spawn() to write the wrapper the python way
1130 instead of the bash way to avoid quote conflicts. Added
1131 'logfile=self._compile_logfile' to a number of spawn() calls. Added new
1132 hash_password() function to GLIUtility. Remove command to 'rm /tmp/spawn.sh'
1133 as it breaks the piping.
1134
1135 20 Mar 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
1136 Added the amd64ArchitectureTemplate, mostly a copy of x86 without lilo.
1137
1138 20 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
1139 Added _get_packages_to_emerge() to GLIArchitectureTemplate and calls in
1140 stage1() and stage2(). Added 'origminor' parameter to GLIStorageDevice and
1141 GLIInstallProfile.
1142
1143 19 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
1144 Fixed a couple bugs in add_netmount() in GLIInstallProfile. spawn() outputs
1145 to the actual tty8 with display_on_tty8 flag. Compile output logfile moved
1146 into /mnt/gentoo in prepare_chroot()
1147
1148 18 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
1149 Add sigunmask.c contributed by d_m (on freenode) to counteract python's
1150 retarted behavior regarding threads and signals. Add code to convert MB/%/*
1151 to start/end sectors
1152
1153 17 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
1154 Add 2>&1 to cmd in spawn()
1155
1156 16 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
1157 Modified GLIUtility.exitsuccess() to work with return value from
1158 commands.getstatusoutput instead of os.waitpid(). spawn() automatically
1159 creates wrapper script for commands run inside chroot so multiple commands
1160 and redirection can be used. Change exitsuccess() back. Added 'chmod a+x'
1161 for the generated script from spawn()
1162
1163 16 Mar 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
1164 Removed default values for stage tarball URI and portage tree URI from
1165 InstallProfile. These should be set by the FEs. also added services step to
1166 ArchTemplate and coldplug/hotplug runlevels to the genkernel step.
1167 Possibly fixed CC DHCP bug with -n. (thx agaffney)
1168
1169 14 Mar 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>

1173 Switched spawn() over to commands.getstatusoutput() instead of fork/waitpid
1174
1175 1 Mar 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
1176 Fixed a bunch of true -> True typos. lots of em
1177 only write new resolv.conf if there are dns servers listed.
1178
1179 1 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
1180 Commented out 'display_on_tty8=True' in start_portmap()
1181

1184
1185 18 Feb 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
1186 Created GLISayWhat module. Renamed GLISayWhat to GLILocalization. Moved
1187 lang parameter to __init__()
1188
1189 10 Feb 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
1190 updates to TODO list.
1191
1192 6 Feb 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>

1194 'emerge -p blah'
1195
1196 6 Feb 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
1197 check for dhcp in the network stuff and emerge it if it is.
1198 added quickpkg to TODO list
1199
1200 5 Feb 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
1201 Changed the raising of 'warning' exceptions to a simple log of the error
1202 so that the installer can continue.
1203
1204 3 Feb 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
1205 Some big changes. First, changed most output to display_on_tty8.
1206 Second, added log lines to all templates. Some smaller fixes such as typos.
1207 Also did some cleanups of old commented lines.
1208
1209 1 Feb 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
1210 Changed tty8 output to a fifo. Minor GLIStorageDevice fix thanks to BenUrban.
1211 Undo change with fix. Escaping fix in GLIStorageDevice.py
1212
1213 31 Jan 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
1214 more updates to TODO list. hopefully we'll soon start removing items instead
1215 of adding them.
1216
1217 29 Jan 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
1218 Changed the way GLIStorageDevice.get_max_sectors_for_resize() works
1219
1220 27 Jan 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
1221 updated TODO list. (again)
1222
1223 25 Jan 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>

1225 fixed bootloader for udev and multiple kernels
1226 fixed custom kernel config (again)
1227
1228 22 Jan 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
1229 changed default value of CC._enable_ssh to True because this is smart.
1230 added code to allow custom kernel .config. may be unstable and break. sorry.
1231
1232 21 Jan 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
1233 partition() now waits until after it checks for partition flags before delete
1234 the partitions :P
1235
1236 19 Jan 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
1237 Updated TODO. swapon failure it temporarily not an error. swapon is an error
1238 again. is_uri() check only performed on portage_tree_snapshot_uri if it isn't
1239 blank.
1240
1241 19 Jan 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
1242 Various fixes related to the add_users function. Still not yet finished.
1243 Added things to the TODO list. Lets start using that!
1244
1245 18 Jan 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
1246 Added code to x86Template to format newly created partitions. Also added
1247 some error checking code. GLIStorageDevice passes 'minor' with data to
1248 InstallProfile. Added partition() call back in ArchTemplate. Fixed NFS
1249 mounting code.
1250
1251 18 Jan 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
1252 Took out unnecessary setting of random livecd root password. the cd already
1253 sets it randomly.
1254
1255 15 Jan 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
1256 Took out an unneeded step from CC's run()
1257
1258 15 Jan 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
1259 Attempt at detecting and adding windows partitions to lilo.
1260
1261 14 Jan 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
1262 Added lilo code and cleaned up lilo code. also do_partitioning renamed to
1263 partition. fixed misc exit_status => exitstatus typo.
1264
1265 11 Jan 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
1266 Added basic code for resizing filesystems with pyparted. Fixed code for
1267 resizing ntfs and ext2/3.
1268
1269 10 Jan 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
1270 Fixed partition() in x86Template so that it scans through logicals and deletes
1271 before deleting containing extended partition. Also clears partition table to
1272 be safe before third pass.
1273
1274 08 Jan 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
1275 Added mount_network_shares. not able to test it from this computer.
1276 will test when i get back to school.
1277 also added start_portmap to the client_controller as an always-do.
1278 agaffney says this is needed for NFS mounts to work.
1279
1280 08 Jan 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
1281 Partial rewrite of partitioning code in x86Template. No longer shells out to
1282 parted to perform actions, now uses all pyparted calls. Code "works" in a
1283 test, but still needs lots of TLC. Also modified tests/install.py to work
1284 with x86Template and GLIClientConfiguration.
1285
1286 07 Jan 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
1287 Initial move of partitioning code from ArchTemplate to x86Template.
1288
1289 07 Jan 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
1290 Added grp_install and services to InstallProfile. forgot about the set_root_password
1291
1292 07 Jan 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
1293 Fixed a few more edit_configs. fixed a chroot multicommand bug thanks to agaffney.
1294 Test Install ran very well (skipping partitioning).
1295
1296 05 Jan 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
1297 My mid-day update. rewrote mount_local_partitions for order of mounting. fixed prepare_chroot
1298 rewrote configure_fstab and install_bootloader for new partition format. fixed a few _edit_configs.
1299 some may still have eluded me.
1300
1301 05 Jan 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
1302 Overhauled the entire ArchTemplate and did a lot of other misc fixes in order to test it.
1303 Just finished mount_local_partitions in GLIArchitectureTemplate
1304
1305 05 Jan 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
1306 Added get_num_sectors() to GLIStorageDevice.
1307
1308 04 Jan 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
1309 GLIStorageDevice now tracks partition boundaries in sectors instead of cylinders.
1310 Also now ignores <=100 sectors for free space. Removed remaining depends stuff
1311 from GLIInstallProfile.
1312
1313 20 Dec 2004; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
1314 GLIStorageDevice returns "unknown" instead of "" for get_type()
1315
1316 19 Dec 2004; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
1317 Added get_extended_partition() to GLIStorageDevice. Rewrote get_logicals() to
1318 actually work. Commented out resizability checking code for speed.
1319
1320 17 Dec 2004; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
1321 Switched to using dumpe2fs to determine free space left in ext2/3 filesystem in
1322 GLIStorageDevice at the suggestion of plors
1323
1324 10 Dec 2004; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
1325 Added a function to GLIUtility to pull a value from a make.conf-style config
1326 file. Minor type fix to GLIInstallProfile.py
1327
1328 09 Dec 2004; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
1329 Added code in GLIArchitectureTemplate.py to write netmounts into fstab. Separated
1330 network mounts from partition data structure in GLIInstallProfile
1331
1332 27 Nov 2004; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
1333 Changed the way GLIStorageDevice.py determines the amount a ext2/3 filesystem
1334 can be resized.
1335
1336 27 Oct 2004; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
1337 Added some of the final functions to GLIInstallTemplate.
1338 Yes this project is still active despite rare use of the Changelog!
1339
1340 11 Jun 2004; Nathaniel McCallum <npmccallum@gentoo.org>
1341 Added the GLIPartitionTools.py file. This is a temporary insertion of
1342 partitioning tools that will eventually go into their own package.
1343
1344 27 Mar 2004; Nathaniel McCallum <npmccallum@gentoo.org>
1345 Added InstallProfileTODO.txt. Added GLIClientConfiguration.py (contains run-time
1346 for the program). Added __init__(install_profile, client_configuration) to
1347 GLI.InstallProfile. This sets install_profile and client_configuration once so as
1348 to avoid constantly passing stuff every time we call a method.
1349
1350 26 Mar 2004; Nathaniel McCallum <npmccallum@gentoo.org>
1351
1352 Added another private method to GLI.InstallTemplate. _edit_config() modifies config
1353 files without messing up all the other stuff in them. This will be used for making
1354 changes to make.conf, rc.conf, /etc/conf.d/net, etc...
1355

1358 Added GLI.InstallTemplate framework. This is not yet functional. However, it does
1359 have a few basic things. I added two private methods. One is _depends(). This
1360 will be used for dependency checking (ie. unpacking a tarball requires that
1361 partitioning has been done). The other is _exec_in_chroot(). This is the exact
1362 same syntax as os.system(), however, instead of being run in the liveCD
1363 environment, it runs in the chroot. This requires a bit of fork() magic, so I
1364 isolated the code. Hope to work more this week to get this class formed...

1368 Added SAX parsing. Made GLI.InstallProfile a subclass of xml.sax.ContentHandler for
1369 obvious reasons. Switched kernel_modules and users to be lists instead of tuples
1370 to allow for easier modification (mutable, rather than immutable objects). Updated
1371 existing pydoc and added more. Implemented body of GLI.InstallProfile.parse().
1372 Cleaned file format of GLI.py a bit. Fixed all accessors to use self references.
1373 Added initial unit test code.

1378 for the project. Added the UML class diagram in docs. Added a skeletal GLI
1379 python module. Added misc files such news, authors, etc.
