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

770 was repeatedly appended to make.conf.
771
772 13 Jun 2005; Robin H. Johnson <robbat2@gentoo.org>
773 src/GLIArchitectureTemplate.py:
774 Put some Linux-2.6 specific code under a if statement. Store list of
775 successfully mounted swap device for using swapoff. Add proper error checking
776 to install_packages and install_filesystem_tools. Fixed namespace conflicts on
777 'file'. Clean up some redundant code (thanks to pychecker).'
778
779 13 Jun 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>

789 ensure PORTAGE_TMPDIR/PORT_LOGDIR/PORTDIR_OVERLAY/PKGDIR exist prior to any
790 usage - this caused a failure for stage1/stage2 previously. swapoff for swap
791 space at end of install. Mount /dev, /dev/shm, /dev/pts and /sys during
792 prepare_chroot.
793
794 11 Jun 2005; Robin H. Johnson <robbat2@gentoo.org> +src/cli/clife.py,

803 and should not be touched (netboot for example).
804
805 11 Jun 2005; Robin H. Johnson <robbat2@gentoo.org>
806 src/GLIArchitectureTemplate.py:
807 pcmcia is not a variable name for a call to _add_to_runlevel, it should be a
808 string!. Try to use binary packages if available by default.
809
810 11 Jun 2005; Robin H. Johnson <robbat2@gentoo.org>
811 src/GLIArchitectureTemplate.py:
812 More error checking for _add_to_runlevel, to ensure that the init script
813 actually exists before we try to add it. set_services phase must take place
814 after the package installation, otherwise the init scripts might not exist.
815 Find the correct init script for the cron and logging daemons, and add that
816 instead of the package atom.
817
818 11 Jun 2005; Robin H. Johnson <robbat2@gentoo.org>
819 src/GLIArchitectureTemplate.py:
820 Fix up _edit_config so that it works if the file doesn't already exist. Fix

849
850 11 Jun 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
851 Move /tmp/spawn.sh and /tmp/post-install to /var/tmp since that should always
852 be executable.
853
854 10 Jun 2005; Scott Myron <samyron@gentoo.org>
855 Fixed one of the FIXME's in the ClientConfiguration. There is now some
856 error checking when you call set_architecture_template.
857
858 10 Jun 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
859 moved the mkfsopts input to the partition options menu instead of the during
860 the creation process. updated GenDialog to say it supports reiserfs v3.
861

1035 adding the new value to the end of the file.
1036
1037 15 Apr 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
1038 Back. Did the docuementation thang for ArchTemplate and ClientConfiguration.

1045 13 Apr 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
1046 Moved 'end >= device_sectors' check out of loop to check for next partition's
1047 start point (thanks to Marco Djukic). Fix >4 primary partitions on non-x86.

1049 point of logical is now adjusted along with start.
1050
1051 11 Apr 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
1052 Finish overhaul of backend partitioning code. Fixed all bugs that stood in
1053 the way of partitioning from a blank disk. Add int() around access to minor
1054 key in partition information due to new partition code leaving them as float.
1055
1056 10 Apr 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
1057 tidy_partitions() function in GLIStorageDevice. Tweaks to tidy code

1081 complete. Added code to (hopefully) keep 2nd thread running after install.
1082 Patch from zahna for extra arguments to the kernel. Patch from zahna to add
1083 get_eth_info() function. Remove most of content in amd64ArchTemplate and
1084 make it inherit from x86Archtemplate. kernel_args -> bootloader_kernel_args
1085
1086 28 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
1087 Added 'append_log=True' to all spawn() calls using logfile=. Append to log
1088 when unpacking tarball.
1089
1090 28 Mar 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
1091 rewrote filesystem_tools. looks like it works so ripping out all the old
1092 filesystem_tools code.
1093
1094 26 Mar 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
1095 Changed the print statements to logging in the partitioning BE code.

1099
1100 25 Mar 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
1101 changed InstallProfile to remove is_uri check on kernel, stage, and portage
1102 URIs. The blank uri check has been commented out.
1103 ripped out error checking of set_services. this is done by _add_to_runlevel.
1104
1105 25 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
1106 set_stage_tarball_uri() doesn't raise an exception on a blank string.
1107
1108 24 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
1109 GRP-ish quickpkg code pulls PKGDIR and PORTAGE_TMPDIR from make.conf info in
1110 the install profile if available. Commented out spawn() debugging prints
1111
1112 23 Mar 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
1113 small changes to setup_network_post. moved adding to runlevel of net.x to
1114 after the device gets symlinked. added domainname runlevel command.
1115
1116 23 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
1117 minor fix (hopefully) to livecd-kernel code. Removed call to mkvardb in
1118 livecd-kernel code as it's now done by catalyst. Switch _emerge() call to
1119 spawn() call in livecd-kernel code to pass environment variables.
1120 livecd-kernel code pulls PKGDIR and PORTAGE_TMPDIR from make.conf info in
1121 the install profile if available.
1122
1123 23 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
1124 Added code to build_kernel() and emerge_kernel_sources() in ArchTemplate
1125 to handle installing the livecd kernel into the new system.
1126
1127 22 Mar 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
1128 should emerge hotplug and coldplug before adding them to runlevel.
1129
1130 21 Mar 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
1131 took chroot out of grub_install command.
1132
1133 21 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
1134 Changed chroot wrapper code in spawn() to write the wrapper the python way
1135 instead of the bash way to avoid quote conflicts. Added
1136 'logfile=self._compile_logfile' to a number of spawn() calls. Added new
1137 hash_password() function to GLIUtility. Remove command to 'rm /tmp/spawn.sh'
1138 as it breaks the piping.
1139
1140 20 Mar 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
1141 Added the amd64ArchitectureTemplate, mostly a copy of x86 without lilo.
1142
1143 20 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
1144 Added _get_packages_to_emerge() to GLIArchitectureTemplate and calls in
1145 stage1() and stage2(). Added 'origminor' parameter to GLIStorageDevice and
1146 GLIInstallProfile.
1147
1148 19 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
1149 Fixed a couple bugs in add_netmount() in GLIInstallProfile. spawn() outputs
1150 to the actual tty8 with display_on_tty8 flag. Compile output logfile moved
1151 into /mnt/gentoo in prepare_chroot()
1152
1153 18 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
1154 Add sigunmask.c contributed by d_m (on freenode) to counteract python's
1155 retarted behavior regarding threads and signals. Add code to convert MB/%/*
1156 to start/end sectors
1157
1158 17 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
1159 Add 2>&1 to cmd in spawn()
1160
1161 16 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
1162 Modified GLIUtility.exitsuccess() to work with return value from
1163 commands.getstatusoutput instead of os.waitpid(). spawn() automatically
1164 creates wrapper script for commands run inside chroot so multiple commands
1165 and redirection can be used. Change exitsuccess() back. Added 'chmod a+x'
1166 for the generated script from spawn()
1167
1168 16 Mar 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
1169 Removed default values for stage tarball URI and portage tree URI from
1170 InstallProfile. These should be set by the FEs. also added services step to
1171 ArchTemplate and coldplug/hotplug runlevels to the genkernel step.
1172 Possibly fixed CC DHCP bug with -n. (thx agaffney)
1173
1174 14 Mar 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>

1178 Switched spawn() over to commands.getstatusoutput() instead of fork/waitpid
1179
1180 1 Mar 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
1181 Fixed a bunch of true -> True typos. lots of em
1182 only write new resolv.conf if there are dns servers listed.
1183
1184 1 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
1185 Commented out 'display_on_tty8=True' in start_portmap()
1186

1192 lang parameter to __init__()
1193
1194 10 Feb 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
1195 updates to TODO list.
1196
1197 6 Feb 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>

1199 'emerge -p blah'
1200
1201 6 Feb 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
1202 check for dhcp in the network stuff and emerge it if it is.
1203 added quickpkg to TODO list
1204
1205 5 Feb 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
1206 Changed the raising of 'warning' exceptions to a simple log of the error
1207 so that the installer can continue.
1208
1209 3 Feb 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
1210 Some big changes. First, changed most output to display_on_tty8.
1211 Second, added log lines to all templates. Some smaller fixes such as typos.
1212 Also did some cleanups of old commented lines.
1213
1214 1 Feb 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
1215 Changed tty8 output to a fifo. Minor GLIStorageDevice fix thanks to BenUrban.
1216 Undo change with fix. Escaping fix in GLIStorageDevice.py
1217
1218 31 Jan 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
1219 more updates to TODO list. hopefully we'll soon start removing items instead
1220 of adding them.
1221
1222 29 Jan 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
1223 Changed the way GLIStorageDevice.get_max_sectors_for_resize() works
1224
1225 27 Jan 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
1226 updated TODO list. (again)
1227
1228 25 Jan 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>

1230 fixed bootloader for udev and multiple kernels
1231 fixed custom kernel config (again)
1232
1233 22 Jan 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
1234 changed default value of CC._enable_ssh to True because this is smart.
1235 added code to allow custom kernel .config. may be unstable and break. sorry.
1236
1237 21 Jan 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
1238 partition() now waits until after it checks for partition flags before delete
1239 the partitions :P
1240
1241 19 Jan 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
1242 Updated TODO. swapon failure it temporarily not an error. swapon is an error
1243 again. is_uri() check only performed on portage_tree_snapshot_uri if it isn't
1244 blank.
1245
1246 19 Jan 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
1247 Various fixes related to the add_users function. Still not yet finished.
1248 Added things to the TODO list. Lets start using that!
1249
1250 18 Jan 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
1251 Added code to x86Template to format newly created partitions. Also added
1252 some error checking code. GLIStorageDevice passes 'minor' with data to
1253 InstallProfile. Added partition() call back in ArchTemplate. Fixed NFS
1254 mounting code.
1255
1256 18 Jan 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
1257 Took out unnecessary setting of random livecd root password. the cd already
1258 sets it randomly.
1259
1260 15 Jan 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
1261 Took out an unneeded step from CC's run()
1262
1263 15 Jan 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
1264 Attempt at detecting and adding windows partitions to lilo.
1265
1266 14 Jan 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
1267 Added lilo code and cleaned up lilo code. also do_partitioning renamed to
1268 partition. fixed misc exit_status => exitstatus typo.
1269
1270 11 Jan 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
1271 Added basic code for resizing filesystems with pyparted. Fixed code for
1272 resizing ntfs and ext2/3.
1273
1274 10 Jan 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
1275 Fixed partition() in x86Template so that it scans through logicals and deletes
1276 before deleting containing extended partition. Also clears partition table to
1277 be safe before third pass.
1278
1279 08 Jan 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
1280 Added mount_network_shares. not able to test it from this computer.
1281 will test when i get back to school.
1282 also added start_portmap to the client_controller as an always-do.
1283 agaffney says this is needed for NFS mounts to work.
1284
1285 08 Jan 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
1286 Partial rewrite of partitioning code in x86Template. No longer shells out to
1287 parted to perform actions, now uses all pyparted calls. Code "works" in a
1288 test, but still needs lots of TLC. Also modified tests/install.py to work
1289 with x86Template and GLIClientConfiguration.
1290
1291 07 Jan 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
1292 Initial move of partitioning code from ArchTemplate to x86Template.
1293
1294 07 Jan 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
1295 Added grp_install and services to InstallProfile. forgot about the set_root_password
1296
1297 07 Jan 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
1298 Fixed a few more edit_configs. fixed a chroot multicommand bug thanks to agaffney.
1299 Test Install ran very well (skipping partitioning).
1300
1301 05 Jan 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
1302 My mid-day update. rewrote mount_local_partitions for order of mounting. fixed prepare_chroot
1303 rewrote configure_fstab and install_bootloader for new partition format. fixed a few _edit_configs.
1304 some may still have eluded me.
1305
1306 05 Jan 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
1307 Overhauled the entire ArchTemplate and did a lot of other misc fixes in order to test it.
1308 Just finished mount_local_partitions in GLIArchitectureTemplate
1309
1310 05 Jan 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
1311 Added get_num_sectors() to GLIStorageDevice.
1312
1313 04 Jan 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
1314 GLIStorageDevice now tracks partition boundaries in sectors instead of cylinders.
1315 Also now ignores <=100 sectors for free space. Removed remaining depends stuff
1316 from GLIInstallProfile.
1317
1318 20 Dec 2004; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
1319 GLIStorageDevice returns "unknown" instead of "" for get_type()
1320
1321 19 Dec 2004; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
1322 Added get_extended_partition() to GLIStorageDevice. Rewrote get_logicals() to
1323 actually work. Commented out resizability checking code for speed.
1324
1325 17 Dec 2004; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
1326 Switched to using dumpe2fs to determine free space left in ext2/3 filesystem in
1327 GLIStorageDevice at the suggestion of plors
1328
1329 10 Dec 2004; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
1330 Added a function to GLIUtility to pull a value from a make.conf-style config
1331 file. Minor type fix to GLIInstallProfile.py
1332
1333 09 Dec 2004; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
1334 Added code in GLIArchitectureTemplate.py to write netmounts into fstab. Separated
1335 network mounts from partition data structure in GLIInstallProfile
1336
1337 27 Nov 2004; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
1338 Changed the way GLIStorageDevice.py determines the amount a ext2/3 filesystem
1339 can be resized.
1340
1341 27 Oct 2004; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
1342 Added some of the final functions to GLIInstallTemplate.
1343 Yes this project is still active despite rare use of the Changelog!
1344
1345 11 Jun 2004; Nathaniel McCallum <npmccallum@gentoo.org>
1346 Added the GLIPartitionTools.py file. This is a temporary insertion of
1347 partitioning tools that will eventually go into their own package.
1348
1349 27 Mar 2004; Nathaniel McCallum <npmccallum@gentoo.org>
1350 Added InstallProfileTODO.txt. Added GLIClientConfiguration.py (contains run-time
1351 for the program). Added __init__(install_profile, client_configuration) to
1352 GLI.InstallProfile. This sets install_profile and client_configuration once so as
1353 to avoid constantly passing stuff every time we call a method.

1357 Added another private method to GLI.InstallTemplate. _edit_config() modifies config
1358 files without messing up all the other stuff in them. This will be used for making
1359 changes to make.conf, rc.conf, /etc/conf.d/net, etc...

1363 Added GLI.InstallTemplate framework. This is not yet functional. However, it does
1364 have a few basic things. I added two private methods. One is _depends(). This
1365 will be used for dependency checking (ie. unpacking a tarball requires that
1366 partitioning has been done). The other is _exec_in_chroot(). This is the exact
1367 same syntax as os.system(), however, instead of being run in the liveCD
1368 environment, it runs in the chroot. This requires a bit of fork() magic, so I
1369 isolated the code. Hope to work more this week to get this class formed...

1373 Added SAX parsing. Made GLI.InstallProfile a subclass of xml.sax.ContentHandler for
1374 obvious reasons. Switched kernel_modules and users to be lists instead of tuples
1375 to allow for easier modification (mutable, rather than immutable objects). Updated
1376 existing pydoc and added more. Implemented body of GLI.InstallProfile.parse().
1377 Cleaned file format of GLI.py a bit. Fixed all accessors to use self references.
1378 Added initial unit test code.

1381
1382 Added initial changelog. Setting up the basic structure of the CVS repository
1383 for the project. Added the UML class diagram in docs. Added a skeletal GLI
1384 python module. Added misc files such news, authors, etc.
