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

801 defaults to "" now instead of "msdos" for disklabel type. Fix for
802 mount_local_partitions() to remember device along with minor in the
803 parts_to_mount dict (closes #96319). mount_local_partitions() cleanups and

824
825 14 Jun 2005; Robin H. Johnson <robbat2@gentoo.org>
826 src/GLIInstallProfile.py:
827 Change structure of etc-portage stuff. The serialization was broken before my
828 last commit, and I am the only person that's ever used it. The new schema is
829 as follows:
830 <etc-portage>
831 <file name="package.mask"/>
832 <file name="package.unmask">
833 <entry atom="sys-kernel/openmosix-sources"/>
834 </file>

855 was repeatedly appended to make.conf.
856
857 13 Jun 2005; Robin H. Johnson <robbat2@gentoo.org>
858 src/GLIArchitectureTemplate.py:
859 Put some Linux-2.6 specific code under a if statement. Store list of
860 successfully mounted swap device for using swapoff. Add proper error checking
861 to install_packages and install_filesystem_tools. Fixed namespace conflicts on
862 'file'. Clean up some redundant code (thanks to pychecker).'
863
864 13 Jun 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>

874 ensure PORTAGE_TMPDIR/PORT_LOGDIR/PORTDIR_OVERLAY/PKGDIR exist prior to any
875 usage - this caused a failure for stage1/stage2 previously. swapoff for swap
876 space at end of install. Mount /dev, /dev/shm, /dev/pts and /sys during
877 prepare_chroot.
878
879 11 Jun 2005; Robin H. Johnson <robbat2@gentoo.org> +src/cli/clife.py,

889
890 11 Jun 2005; Robin H. Johnson <robbat2@gentoo.org>
891 src/GLIArchitectureTemplate.py:
892 pcmcia is not a variable name for a call to _add_to_runlevel, it should be a
893 string!. Try to use binary packages if available by default.
894
895 11 Jun 2005; Robin H. Johnson <robbat2@gentoo.org>
896 src/GLIArchitectureTemplate.py:
897 More error checking for _add_to_runlevel, to ensure that the init script
898 actually exists before we try to add it. set_services phase must take place
899 after the package installation, otherwise the init scripts might not exist.
900 Find the correct init script for the cron and logging daemons, and add that
901 instead of the package atom.
902
903 11 Jun 2005; Robin H. Johnson <robbat2@gentoo.org>
904 src/GLIArchitectureTemplate.py:
905 Fix up _edit_config so that it works if the file doesn't already exist. Fix

909 11 Jun 2005; Robin H. Johnson <robbat2@gentoo.org>
910 src/GLIArchitectureTemplate.py:
911 Add MTA install code, and include MTA install phase. Ensure

931
932 11 Jun 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
933 refixed samyron's fix of set_architecture_template.
934
935 11 Jun 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
936 Move /tmp/spawn.sh and /tmp/post-install to /var/tmp since that should always
937 be executable.
938
939 10 Jun 2005; Scott Myron <samyron@gentoo.org>
940 Fixed one of the FIXME's in the ClientConfiguration. There is now some
941 error checking when you call set_architecture_template.
942
943 10 Jun 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
944 moved the mkfsopts input to the partition options menu instead of the during
945 the creation process. updated GenDialog to say it supports reiserfs v3.

1176 rewrote filesystem_tools. looks like it works so ripping out all the old
1177 filesystem_tools code.
1178
1179 26 Mar 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>

1184
1185 25 Mar 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
1186 changed InstallProfile to remove is_uri check on kernel, stage, and portage
1187 URIs. The blank uri check has been commented out.
1188 ripped out error checking of set_services. this is done by _add_to_runlevel.
1189
1190 25 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
1191 set_stage_tarball_uri() doesn't raise an exception on a blank string.
1192

1200
1201 23 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
1202 minor fix (hopefully) to livecd-kernel code. Removed call to mkvardb in
1203 livecd-kernel code as it's now done by catalyst. Switch _emerge() call to
1204 spawn() call in livecd-kernel code to pass environment variables.
1205 livecd-kernel code pulls PKGDIR and PORTAGE_TMPDIR from make.conf info in
1206 the install profile if available.
1207
1208 23 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
1209 Added code to build_kernel() and emerge_kernel_sources() in ArchTemplate
1210 to handle installing the livecd kernel into the new system.
1211
1212 22 Mar 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
1213 should emerge hotplug and coldplug before adding them to runlevel.
1214
1215 21 Mar 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
1216 took chroot out of grub_install command.
1217
1218 21 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
1219 Changed chroot wrapper code in spawn() to write the wrapper the python way
1220 instead of the bash way to avoid quote conflicts. Added
1221 'logfile=self._compile_logfile' to a number of spawn() calls. Added new
1222 hash_password() function to GLIUtility. Remove command to 'rm /tmp/spawn.sh'
1223 as it breaks the piping.
1224
1225 20 Mar 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
1226 Added the amd64ArchitectureTemplate, mostly a copy of x86 without lilo.
1227
1228 20 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
1229 Added _get_packages_to_emerge() to GLIArchitectureTemplate and calls in
1230 stage1() and stage2(). Added 'origminor' parameter to GLIStorageDevice and
1231 GLIInstallProfile.
1232
1233 19 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
1234 Fixed a couple bugs in add_netmount() in GLIInstallProfile. spawn() outputs
1235 to the actual tty8 with display_on_tty8 flag. Compile output logfile moved
1236 into /mnt/gentoo in prepare_chroot()
1237
1238 18 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
1239 Add sigunmask.c contributed by d_m (on freenode) to counteract python's
1240 retarted behavior regarding threads and signals. Add code to convert MB/%/*
1241 to start/end sectors
1242
1243 17 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
1244 Add 2>&1 to cmd in spawn()
1245
1246 16 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
1247 Modified GLIUtility.exitsuccess() to work with return value from
1248 commands.getstatusoutput instead of os.waitpid(). spawn() automatically
1249 creates wrapper script for commands run inside chroot so multiple commands
1250 and redirection can be used. Change exitsuccess() back. Added 'chmod a+x'
1251 for the generated script from spawn()
1252
1253 16 Mar 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
1254 Removed default values for stage tarball URI and portage tree URI from
1255 InstallProfile. These should be set by the FEs. also added services step to
1256 ArchTemplate and coldplug/hotplug runlevels to the genkernel step.
1257 Possibly fixed CC DHCP bug with -n. (thx agaffney)
1258

1264
1265 1 Mar 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
1266 Fixed a bunch of true -> True typos. lots of em
1267 only write new resolv.conf if there are dns servers listed.
1268
1269 1 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
1270 Commented out 'display_on_tty8=True' in start_portmap()

1292 so that the installer can continue.
1293
1294 3 Feb 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
1295 Some big changes. First, changed most output to display_on_tty8.
1296 Second, added log lines to all templates. Some smaller fixes such as typos.
1297 Also did some cleanups of old commented lines.
1298
1299 1 Feb 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>

1323 partition() now waits until after it checks for partition flags before delete
1324 the partitions :P
1325
1326 19 Jan 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
1327 Updated TODO. swapon failure it temporarily not an error. swapon is an error

1339 mounting code.
1340
1341 18 Jan 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>

1362 be safe before third pass.
1363
1364 08 Jan 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
1365 Added mount_network_shares. not able to test it from this computer.
1366 will test when i get back to school.
1367 also added start_portmap to the client_controller as an always-do.
1368 agaffney says this is needed for NFS mounts to work.

1370 08 Jan 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
1371 Partial rewrite of partitioning code in x86Template. No longer shells out to
1372 parted to perform actions, now uses all pyparted calls. Code "works" in a
1373 test, but still needs lots of TLC. Also modified tests/install.py to work
1374 with x86Template and GLIClientConfiguration.
1375
1376 07 Jan 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
1377 Initial move of partitioning code from ArchTemplate to x86Template.
1378
1379 07 Jan 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
1380 Added grp_install and services to InstallProfile. forgot about the set_root_password
1381
1382 07 Jan 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
1383 Fixed a few more edit_configs. fixed a chroot multicommand bug thanks to agaffney.
1384 Test Install ran very well (skipping partitioning).
1385
1386 05 Jan 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
1387 My mid-day update. rewrote mount_local_partitions for order of mounting. fixed prepare_chroot
1388 rewrote configure_fstab and install_bootloader for new partition format. fixed a few _edit_configs.
1389 some may still have eluded me.
1390
1391 05 Jan 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
1392 Overhauled the entire ArchTemplate and did a lot of other misc fixes in order to test it.
1393 Just finished mount_local_partitions in GLIArchitectureTemplate
1394
1395 05 Jan 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
1396 Added get_num_sectors() to GLIStorageDevice.
1397
1398 04 Jan 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
1399 GLIStorageDevice now tracks partition boundaries in sectors instead of cylinders.
1400 Also now ignores <=100 sectors for free space. Removed remaining depends stuff
1401 from GLIInstallProfile.
1402
1403 20 Dec 2004; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
1404 GLIStorageDevice returns "unknown" instead of "" for get_type()
1405
1406 19 Dec 2004; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
1407 Added get_extended_partition() to GLIStorageDevice. Rewrote get_logicals() to
1408 actually work. Commented out resizability checking code for speed.
1409
1410 17 Dec 2004; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
1411 Switched to using dumpe2fs to determine free space left in ext2/3 filesystem in
1412 GLIStorageDevice at the suggestion of plors
1413
1414 10 Dec 2004; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
1415 Added a function to GLIUtility to pull a value from a make.conf-style config
1416 file. Minor type fix to GLIInstallProfile.py
1417
1418 09 Dec 2004; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
1419 Added code in GLIArchitectureTemplate.py to write netmounts into fstab. Separated
1420 network mounts from partition data structure in GLIInstallProfile
1421
1422 27 Nov 2004; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
1423 Changed the way GLIStorageDevice.py determines the amount a ext2/3 filesystem
1424 can be resized.
1425
1426 27 Oct 2004; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
1427 Added some of the final functions to GLIInstallTemplate.
1428 Yes this project is still active despite rare use of the Changelog!
1429
1430 11 Jun 2004; Nathaniel McCallum <npmccallum@gentoo.org>
1431 Added the GLIPartitionTools.py file. This is a temporary insertion of
1432 partitioning tools that will eventually go into their own package.
1433
1434 27 Mar 2004; Nathaniel McCallum <npmccallum@gentoo.org>
1435 Added InstallProfileTODO.txt. Added GLIClientConfiguration.py (contains run-time
1436 for the program). Added __init__(install_profile, client_configuration) to
1437 GLI.InstallProfile. This sets install_profile and client_configuration once so as
1438 to avoid constantly passing stuff every time we call a method.
1439
1440 26 Mar 2004; Nathaniel McCallum <npmccallum@gentoo.org>
1441
1442 Added another private method to GLI.InstallTemplate. _edit_config() modifies config
1443 files without messing up all the other stuff in them. This will be used for making
1444 changes to make.conf, rc.conf, /etc/conf.d/net, etc...
1445
1446 25 Mar 2004; Nathaniel McCallum <npmccallum@gentoo.org>
1447
1448 Added GLI.InstallTemplate framework. This is not yet functional. However, it does
1449 have a few basic things. I added two private methods. One is _depends(). This
1450 will be used for dependency checking (ie. unpacking a tarball requires that
1451 partitioning has been done). The other is _exec_in_chroot(). This is the exact
1452 same syntax as os.system(), however, instead of being run in the liveCD
1453 environment, it runs in the chroot. This requires a bit of fork() magic, so I
1454 isolated the code. Hope to work more this week to get this class formed...
1455
1456 14 Feb 2004; Eric Sammer <esammer@gentoo.org>
1457
1458 Added SAX parsing. Made GLI.InstallProfile a subclass of xml.sax.ContentHandler for
1459 obvious reasons. Switched kernel_modules and users to be lists instead of tuples
1460 to allow for easier modification (mutable, rather than immutable objects). Updated
1461 existing pydoc and added more. Implemented body of GLI.InstallProfile.parse().
1462 Cleaned file format of GLI.py a bit. Fixed all accessors to use self references.
1463 Added initial unit test code.
1464
1465 9 Feb 2004; Eric Sammer <esammer@gentoo.org>
1466
1467 Added initial changelog. Setting up the basic structure of the CVS repository
1468 for the project. Added the UML class diagram in docs. Added a skeletal GLI
1469 python module. Added misc files such news, authors, etc.
