5 *GLI-0.01 (9 Feb 2004)
6
7 21 Mar 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
8 took chroot out of grub_install command.
9
10 21 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
11 Changed chroot wrapper code in spawn() to write the wrapper the python way
12 instead of the bash way to avoid quote conflicts.
13
14 20 Mar 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
15 Added the amd64ArchitectureTemplate, mostly a copy of x86 without lilo.
16
17 20 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
18 Added _get_packages_to_emerge() to GLIArchitectureTemplate and calls in
19 stage1() and stage2(). Added 'origminor' parameter to GLIStorageDevice and
20 GLIInstallProfile.
21
22 19 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
23 Fixed a couple bugs in add_netmount() in GLIInstallProfile. spawn() outputs
24 to the actual tty8 with display_on_tty8 flag. Compile output logfile moved
25 into /mnt/gentoo in prepare_chroot()
26
27 18 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
28 Add sigunmask.c contributed by d_m (on freenode) to counteract python's
29 retarted behavior regarding threads and signals. Add code to convert MB/%/*
30 to start/end sectors
31
32 17 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
33 Add 2>&1 to cmd in spawn()
34
35 16 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
36 Modified GLIUtility.exitsuccess() to work with return value from
37 commands.getstatusoutput instead of os.waitpid(). spawn() automatically
38 creates wrapper script for commands run inside chroot so multiple commands
39 and redirection can be used. Change exitsuccess() back. Added 'chmod a+x'
40 for the generated script from spawn()
41
42 16 Mar 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
43 Removed default values for stage tarball URI and portage tree URI from
44 InstallProfile. These should be set by the FEs. also added services step to
45 ArchTemplate and coldplug/hotplug runlevels to the genkernel step.
46 Possibly fixed CC DHCP bug with -n. (thx agaffney)
47
48 14 Mar 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
49 Small fix for setting the default gateway. Also added feature to dialogfe.
50
51 7 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
52 Switched spawn() over to commands.getstatusoutput() instead of fork/waitpid
53
54 1 Mar 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
55 Fixed a bunch of true -> True typos. lots of em
56 only write new resolv.conf if there are dns servers listed.
57
58 1 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
59 Commented out 'display_on_tty8=True' in start_portmap()
60
61 18 Feb 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
62 added progress bar to dialogfe and fix logger bug in ArchTemplate.
63
64 18 Feb 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
65 Created GLISayWhat module. Renamed GLISayWhat to GLILocalization. Moved
66 lang parameter to __init__()
67
68 10 Feb 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
69 updates to TODO list.
70
71 6 Feb 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
72 Initial code for quickpkg GRP support. Fix loop to grab packages from
73 'emerge -p blah'
74
75 6 Feb 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
76 check for dhcp in the network stuff and emerge it if it is.
77 added quickpkg to TODO list
78
79 5 Feb 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
80 Changed the raising of 'warning' exceptions to a simple log of the error
81 so that the installer can continue.
82
83 3 Feb 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
84 Some big changes. First, changed most output to display_on_tty8.
85 Second, added log lines to all templates. Some smaller fixes such as typos.
86 Also did some cleanups of old commented lines.
87
88 1 Feb 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
89 Changed tty8 output to a fifo. Minor GLIStorageDevice fix thanks to BenUrban.
90 Undo change with fix. Escaping fix in GLIStorageDevice.py
91
92 31 Jan 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
93 more updates to TODO list. hopefully we'll soon start removing items instead
94 of adding them.
95
96 29 Jan 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
97 Changed the way GLIStorageDevice.get_max_sectors_for_resize() works
98
99 27 Jan 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
100 updated TODO list. (again)
101
102 25 Jan 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>

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