5 *GLI-0.01 (9 Feb 2004)
6
7 21 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
8 Changed chroot wrapper code in spawn() to write the wrapper the python way
9 instead of the bash way to avoid quote conflicts.
10
11 20 Mar 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
12 Added the amd64ArchitectureTemplate, mostly a copy of x86 without lilo.
13
14 20 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
15 Added _get_packages_to_emerge() to GLIArchitectureTemplate and calls in
16 stage1() and stage2(). Added 'origminor' parameter to GLIStorageDevice and
17 GLIInstallProfile.
18
19 19 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
20 Fixed a couple bugs in add_netmount() in GLIInstallProfile. spawn() outputs
21 to the actual tty8 with display_on_tty8 flag. Compile output logfile moved
22 into /mnt/gentoo in prepare_chroot()
23
24 18 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
25 Add sigunmask.c contributed by d_m (on freenode) to counteract python's
26 retarted behavior regarding threads and signals. Add code to convert MB/%/*
27 to start/end sectors
28
29 17 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
30 Add 2>&1 to cmd in spawn()
31
32 16 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
33 Modified GLIUtility.exitsuccess() to work with return value from
34 commands.getstatusoutput instead of os.waitpid(). spawn() automatically
35 creates wrapper script for commands run inside chroot so multiple commands
36 and redirection can be used. Change exitsuccess() back. Added 'chmod a+x'
37 for the generated script from spawn()
38
39 16 Mar 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
40 Removed default values for stage tarball URI and portage tree URI from
41 InstallProfile. These should be set by the FEs. also added services step to
42 ArchTemplate and coldplug/hotplug runlevels to the genkernel step.
43 Possibly fixed CC DHCP bug with -n. (thx agaffney)
44
45 14 Mar 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
46 Small fix for setting the default gateway. Also added feature to dialogfe.
47
48 7 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
49 Switched spawn() over to commands.getstatusoutput() instead of fork/waitpid
50
51 1 Mar 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
52 Fixed a bunch of true -> True typos. lots of em
53 only write new resolv.conf if there are dns servers listed.
54
55 1 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
56 Commented out 'display_on_tty8=True' in start_portmap()
57
58 18 Feb 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
59 added progress bar to dialogfe and fix logger bug in ArchTemplate.
60
61 18 Feb 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>

66 updates to TODO list.
67
68 6 Feb 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
69 Initial code for quickpkg GRP support. Fix loop to grab packages from
70 'emerge -p blah'
71
72 6 Feb 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
73 check for dhcp in the network stuff and emerge it if it is.
74 added quickpkg to TODO list
75
76 5 Feb 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
77 Changed the raising of 'warning' exceptions to a simple log of the error
78 so that the installer can continue.
79
80 3 Feb 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
81 Some big changes. First, changed most output to display_on_tty8.
82 Second, added log lines to all templates. Some smaller fixes such as typos.
83 Also did some cleanups of old commented lines.
84
85 1 Feb 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
86 Changed tty8 output to a fifo. Minor GLIStorageDevice fix thanks to BenUrban.
87 Undo change with fix. Escaping fix in GLIStorageDevice.py
88
89 31 Jan 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
90 more updates to TODO list. hopefully we'll soon start removing items instead
91 of adding them.
92
93 29 Jan 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
94 Changed the way GLIStorageDevice.get_max_sectors_for_resize() works
95
96 27 Jan 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
97 updated TODO list. (again)
98
99 25 Jan 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>

101 fixed bootloader for udev and multiple kernels
102 fixed custom kernel config (again)
103
104 22 Jan 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
105 changed default value of CC._enable_ssh to True because this is smart.
106 added code to allow custom kernel .config. may be unstable and break. sorry.
107
108 21 Jan 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
109 partition() now waits until after it checks for partition flags before delete
110 the partitions :P
111
112 19 Jan 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
113 Updated TODO. swapon failure it temporarily not an error. swapon is an error
114 again. is_uri() check only performed on portage_tree_snapshot_uri if it isn't
115 blank.
116
117 19 Jan 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
118 Various fixes related to the add_users function. Still not yet finished.
119 Added things to the TODO list. Lets start using that!
120
121 18 Jan 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
122 Added code to x86Template to format newly created partitions. Also added
123 some error checking code. GLIStorageDevice passes 'minor' with data to
124 InstallProfile. Added partition() call back in ArchTemplate. Fixed NFS
125 mounting code.
126
127 18 Jan 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
128 Took out unnecessary setting of random livecd root password. the cd already
129 sets it randomly.
130
131 15 Jan 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
132 Took out an unneeded step from CC's run()
133
134 15 Jan 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
135 Attempt at detecting and adding windows partitions to lilo.
136
137 14 Jan 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
138 Added lilo code and cleaned up lilo code. also do_partitioning renamed to
139 partition. fixed misc exit_status => exitstatus typo.
140
141 11 Jan 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
142 Added basic code for resizing filesystems with pyparted. Fixed code for
143 resizing ntfs and ext2/3.
144
145 10 Jan 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
146 Fixed partition() in x86Template so that it scans through logicals and deletes
147 before deleting containing extended partition. Also clears partition table to
148 be safe before third pass.
149
150 08 Jan 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
151 Added mount_network_shares. not able to test it from this computer.
152 will test when i get back to school.
153 also added start_portmap to the client_controller as an always-do.
154 agaffney says this is needed for NFS mounts to work.
155
156 08 Jan 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
157 Partial rewrite of partitioning code in x86Template. No longer shells out to
158 parted to perform actions, now uses all pyparted calls. Code "works" in a
159 test, but still needs lots of TLC. Also modified tests/install.py to work
160 with x86Template and GLIClientConfiguration.
161
162 07 Jan 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
163 Initial move of partitioning code from ArchTemplate to x86Template.
164
165 07 Jan 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
166 Added grp_install and services to InstallProfile. forgot about the set_root_password
167
168 07 Jan 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
169 Fixed a few more edit_configs. fixed a chroot multicommand bug thanks to agaffney.
170 Test Install ran very well (skipping partitioning).
171
172 05 Jan 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
173 My mid-day update. rewrote mount_local_partitions for order of mounting. fixed prepare_chroot
174 rewrote configure_fstab and install_bootloader for new partition format. fixed a few _edit_configs.
175 some may still have eluded me.
176
177 05 Jan 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
178 Overhauled the entire ArchTemplate and did a lot of other misc fixes in order to test it.
179 Just finished mount_local_partitions in GLIArchitectureTemplate
180
181 05 Jan 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
182 Added get_num_sectors() to GLIStorageDevice.
183
184 04 Jan 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
185 GLIStorageDevice now tracks partition boundaries in sectors instead of cylinders.
186 Also now ignores <=100 sectors for free space. Removed remaining depends stuff
187 from GLIInstallProfile.
188
189 20 Dec 2004; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
190 GLIStorageDevice returns "unknown" instead of "" for get_type()
191
192 19 Dec 2004; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
193 Added get_extended_partition() to GLIStorageDevice. Rewrote get_logicals() to
194 actually work. Commented out resizability checking code for speed.
195
196 17 Dec 2004; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
197 Switched to using dumpe2fs to determine free space left in ext2/3 filesystem in
198 GLIStorageDevice at the suggestion of plors
199
200 10 Dec 2004; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
201 Added a function to GLIUtility to pull a value from a make.conf-style config
202 file. Minor type fix to GLIInstallProfile.py
203
204 09 Dec 2004; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
205 Added code in GLIArchitectureTemplate.py to write netmounts into fstab. Separated
206 network mounts from partition data structure in GLIInstallProfile
207
208 27 Nov 2004; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
209 Changed the way GLIStorageDevice.py determines the amount a ext2/3 filesystem
210 can be resized.
211
212 27 Oct 2004; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
213 Added some of the final functions to GLIInstallTemplate.
214 Yes this project is still active despite rare use of the Changelog!
215
216 11 Jun 2004; Nathaniel McCallum <npmccallum@gentoo.org>
217 Added the GLIPartitionTools.py file. This is a temporary insertion of
218 partitioning tools that will eventually go into their own package.
219
220 27 Mar 2004; Nathaniel McCallum <npmccallum@gentoo.org>
221 Added InstallProfileTODO.txt. Added GLIClientConfiguration.py (contains run-time
222 for the program). Added __init__(install_profile, client_configuration) to
223 GLI.InstallProfile. This sets install_profile and client_configuration once so as
224 to avoid constantly passing stuff every time we call a method.
225
226 26 Mar 2004; Nathaniel McCallum <npmccallum@gentoo.org>
227
228 Added another private method to GLI.InstallTemplate. _edit_config() modifies config
229 files without messing up all the other stuff in them. This will be used for making
230 changes to make.conf, rc.conf, /etc/conf.d/net, etc...
231
232 25 Mar 2004; Nathaniel McCallum <npmccallum@gentoo.org>
233
234 Added GLI.InstallTemplate framework. This is not yet functional. However, it does
235 have a few basic things. I added two private methods. One is _depends(). This
236 will be used for dependency checking (ie. unpacking a tarball requires that
237 partitioning has been done). The other is _exec_in_chroot(). This is the exact
238 same syntax as os.system(), however, instead of being run in the liveCD
239 environment, it runs in the chroot. This requires a bit of fork() magic, so I
240 isolated the code. Hope to work more this week to get this class formed...
241
242 14 Feb 2004; Eric Sammer <esammer@gentoo.org>
243
244 Added SAX parsing. Made GLI.InstallProfile a subclass of xml.sax.ContentHandler for
245 obvious reasons. Switched kernel_modules and users to be lists instead of tuples
246 to allow for easier modification (mutable, rather than immutable objects). Updated
247 existing pydoc and added more. Implemented body of GLI.InstallProfile.parse().
248 Cleaned file format of GLI.py a bit. Fixed all accessors to use self references.
249 Added initial unit test code.
250
251 9 Feb 2004; Eric Sammer <esammer@gentoo.org>
252
253 Added initial changelog. Setting up the basic structure of the CVS repository
254 for the project. Added the UML class diagram in docs. Added a skeletal GLI
255 python module. Added misc files such news, authors, etc.
