1710 minor fix (hopefully) to livecd-kernel code. Removed call to mkvardb in
1711 livecd-kernel code as it's now done by catalyst. Switch _emerge() call to
1712 spawn() call in livecd-kernel code to pass environment variables.
1713 livecd-kernel code pulls PKGDIR and PORTAGE_TMPDIR from make.conf info in
1714 the install profile if available.

1724 took chroot out of grub_install command.
1725
1726 21 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org> :
1727 Changed chroot wrapper code in spawn() to write the wrapper the python way
1728 instead of the bash way to avoid quote conflicts. Added
1729 'logfile=self._compile_logfile' to a number of spawn() calls. Added new
1730 hash_password() function to GLIUtility. Remove command to 'rm /tmp/spawn.sh'

1740
1741 19 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org> :

1755 Modified GLIUtility.exitsuccess() to work with return value from
1756 commands.getstatusoutput instead of os.waitpid(). spawn() automatically
1757 creates wrapper script for commands run inside chroot so multiple commands
1758 and redirection can be used. Change exitsuccess() back. Added 'chmod a+x'
1759 for the generated script from spawn()
1760
1761 16 Mar 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org> :
1762 Removed default values for stage tarball URI and portage tree URI from

1803 Some big changes. First, changed most output to display_on_tty8.
1804 Second, added log lines to all templates. Some smaller fixes such as typos.
1805 Also did some cleanups of old commented lines.
1806
1807 1 Feb 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org> :
1808 Changed tty8 output to a fifo. Minor GLIStorageDevice fix thanks to BenUrban.
1809 Undo change with fix. Escaping fix in GLIStorageDevice.py
1810
1811 31 Jan 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org> :
1812 more updates to TODO list. hopefully we'll soon start removing items instead
1813 of adding them.
1814
1815 29 Jan 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org> :
1816 Changed the way GLIStorageDevice.get_max_sectors_for_resize() works
1817
1818 27 Jan 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org> :
1819 updated TODO list. (again)
1820
1821 25 Jan 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org> :
1822 changed output of portmap start to display_on_tty8.
1823 fixed bootloader for udev and multiple kernels
1824 fixed custom kernel config (again)
1825
1826 22 Jan 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org> :
1827 changed default value of CC._enable_ssh to True because this is smart.
1828 added code to allow custom kernel .config. may be unstable and break. sorry.
1829
1830 21 Jan 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org> :
1831 partition() now waits until after it checks for partition flags before delete
1832 the partitions :P
1833
1834 19 Jan 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org> :
1835 Updated TODO. swapon failure it temporarily not an error. swapon is an error
1836 again. is_uri() check only performed on portage_tree_snapshot_uri if it isn't
1837 blank.
1838
1839 19 Jan 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org> :
1840 Various fixes related to the add_users function. Still not yet finished.
1841 Added things to the TODO list. Lets start using that!
1842
1843 18 Jan 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org> :
1844 Added code to x86Template to format newly created partitions. Also added
1845 some error checking code. GLIStorageDevice passes 'minor' with data to
1846 InstallProfile. Added partition() call back in ArchTemplate. Fixed NFS
1847 mounting code.
1848
1849 18 Jan 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org> :
1850 Took out unnecessary setting of random livecd root password. the cd already
1851 sets it randomly.
1852
1853 15 Jan 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org> :
1854 Took out an unneeded step from CC's run()
1855
1856 15 Jan 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org> :
1857 Attempt at detecting and adding windows partitions to lilo.
1858
1859 14 Jan 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org> :
1860 Added lilo code and cleaned up lilo code. also do_partitioning renamed to
1861 partition. fixed misc exit_status => exitstatus typo.
1862
1863 11 Jan 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org> :
1864 Added basic code for resizing filesystems with pyparted. Fixed code for
1865 resizing ntfs and ext2/3.
1866
1867 10 Jan 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org> :
1868 Fixed partition() in x86Template so that it scans through logicals and deletes
1869 before deleting containing extended partition. Also clears partition table to
1870 be safe before third pass.
1871
1872 08 Jan 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org> :
1873 Added mount_network_shares. not able to test it from this computer.
1874 will test when i get back to school.
1875 also added start_portmap to the client_controller as an always-do.
1876 agaffney says this is needed for NFS mounts to work.
1877
1878 08 Jan 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org> :
1879 Partial rewrite of partitioning code in x86Template. No longer shells out to
1880 parted to perform actions, now uses all pyparted calls. Code "works" in a
1881 test, but still needs lots of TLC. Also modified tests/install.py to work
1882 with x86Template and GLIClientConfiguration.
1883
1884 07 Jan 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org> :
1885 Initial move of partitioning code from ArchTemplate to x86Template.
1886
1887 07 Jan 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org> :
1888 Added grp_install and services to InstallProfile. forgot about the set_root_password
1889
1890 07 Jan 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org> :
1891 Fixed a few more edit_configs. fixed a chroot multicommand bug thanks to
1892 agaffney. Test Install ran very well (skipping partitioning).
1893
1894 05 Jan 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org> :
1895 My mid-day update. rewrote mount_local_partitions for order of mounting.
1896 fixed prepare_chroot. rewrote configure_fstab and install_bootloader for new
1897 partition format. fixed a few _edit_configs. some may still have eluded me.
1898
1899 05 Jan 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org> :
1900 Overhauled the entire ArchTemplate and did a lot of other misc fixes in order
1901 to test it.
1902 Just finished mount_local_partitions in GLIArchitectureTemplate
1903
1904 05 Jan 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org> :
1905 Added get_num_sectors() to GLIStorageDevice.
1906
1907 04 Jan 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org> :
1908 GLIStorageDevice now tracks partition boundaries in sectors instead of
1909 cylinders.
1910 Also now ignores <=100 sectors for free space. Removed remaining depends stuff
1911 from GLIInstallProfile.
1912
1913 20 Dec 2004; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org> :
1914 GLIStorageDevice returns "unknown" instead of "" for get_type()
1915
1916 19 Dec 2004; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org> :
1917 Added get_extended_partition() to GLIStorageDevice. Rewrote get_logicals() to
1918 actually work. Commented out resizability checking code for speed.
1919
1920 17 Dec 2004; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org> :
1921 Switched to using dumpe2fs to determine free space left in ext2/3 filesystem
1922 in GLIStorageDevice at the suggestion of plors
1923
1924 10 Dec 2004; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org> :
1925 Added a function to GLIUtility to pull a value from a make.conf-style config
1926 file. Minor type fix to GLIInstallProfile.py
1927
1928 09 Dec 2004; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org> :
1929 Added code in GLIArchitectureTemplate.py to write netmounts into fstab.
1930 Separated network mounts from partition data structure in GLIInstallProfile
1931
1932 27 Nov 2004; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org> :
1933 Changed the way GLIStorageDevice.py determines the amount a ext2/3 filesystem
1934 can be resized.
1935
1936 27 Oct 2004; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org> :
1937 Added some of the final functions to GLIInstallTemplate.
1938 Yes this project is still active despite rare use of the Changelog!
1939
1940 11 Jun 2004; Nathaniel McCallum <npmccallum@gentoo.org> :
1941 Added the GLIPartitionTools.py file. This is a temporary insertion of
1942 partitioning tools that will eventually go into their own package.
1943
1944 27 Mar 2004; Nathaniel McCallum <npmccallum@gentoo.org> :
1945 Added InstallProfileTODO.txt. Added GLIClientConfiguration.py (contains
1946 run-time for the program). Added __init__(install_profile,
1947 client_configuration) to GLI.InstallProfile. This sets install_profile and
1948 client_configuration once so as to avoid constantly passing stuff every time
1949 we call a method.
1950
1951 26 Mar 2004; Nathaniel McCallum <npmccallum@gentoo.org> :
1952
1953 Added another private method to GLI.InstallTemplate. _edit_config() modifies
1954 config files without messing up all the other stuff in them. This will be
1955 used for making changes to make.conf, rc.conf, /etc/conf.d/net, etc...
1956
1957 25 Mar 2004; Nathaniel McCallum <npmccallum@gentoo.org> :
1958
1959 Added GLI.InstallTemplate framework. This is not yet functional. However,
1960 it does have a few basic things. I added two private methods. One is
1961 _depends(). This will be used for dependency checking (ie. unpacking a
1962 tarball requires that partitioning has been done). The other is
1963 _exec_in_chroot(). This is the exact same syntax as os.system(), however,
1964 instead of being run in the liveCD environment, it runs in the chroot. This
1965 requires a bit of fork() magic, so I isolated the code. Hope to work more
1966 this week to get this class formed...
1967
1968 14 Feb 2004; Eric Sammer <esammer@gentoo.org> :
1969 Added SAX parsing. Made GLI.InstallProfile a subclass of
1970 xml.sax.ContentHandler for obvious reasons. Switched kernel_modules and users
1971 to be lists instead of tuples to allow for easier modification (mutable,
1972 rather than immutable objects). Updated existing pydoc and added more.
1973 Implemented body of GLI.InstallProfile.parse(). Cleaned file format of
1974 GLI.py a bit. Fixed all accessors to use self references.
1975 Added initial unit test code.
1976
1977 9 Feb 2004; Eric Sammer <esammer@gentoo.org> :
1978 Added initial changelog. Setting up the basic structure of the CVS repository
1979 for the project. Added the UML class diagram in docs. Added a skeletal GLI
1980 python module. Added misc files such news, authors, etc.
