5 *GLI-0.01 (9 Feb 2004)
6
7 23 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
8 Added code to build_kernel() and emerge_kernel_sources() in ArchTemplate
9 to handle installing the livecd kernel into the new system.
10
11 22 Mar 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
12 should emerge hotplug and coldplug before adding them to runlevel.
13
14 21 Mar 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
15 took chroot out of grub_install command.
16
17 21 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
18 Changed chroot wrapper code in spawn() to write the wrapper the python way
19 instead of the bash way to avoid quote conflicts. Added
20 'logfile=self._compile_logfile' to a number of spawn() calls. Added new
21 hash_password() function to GLIUtility. Remove command to 'rm /tmp/spawn.sh'
22 as it breaks the piping.
23
24 20 Mar 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
25 Added the amd64ArchitectureTemplate, mostly a copy of x86 without lilo.
26
27 20 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
28 Added _get_packages_to_emerge() to GLIArchitectureTemplate and calls in
29 stage1() and stage2(). Added 'origminor' parameter to GLIStorageDevice and
30 GLIInstallProfile.
31
32 19 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
33 Fixed a couple bugs in add_netmount() in GLIInstallProfile. spawn() outputs
34 to the actual tty8 with display_on_tty8 flag. Compile output logfile moved
35 into /mnt/gentoo in prepare_chroot()
36
37 18 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
38 Add sigunmask.c contributed by d_m (on freenode) to counteract python's
39 retarted behavior regarding threads and signals. Add code to convert MB/%/*
40 to start/end sectors
41
42 17 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
43 Add 2>&1 to cmd in spawn()
44
45 16 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
46 Modified GLIUtility.exitsuccess() to work with return value from
47 commands.getstatusoutput instead of os.waitpid(). spawn() automatically
48 creates wrapper script for commands run inside chroot so multiple commands
49 and redirection can be used. Change exitsuccess() back. Added 'chmod a+x'
50 for the generated script from spawn()
51
52 16 Mar 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
53 Removed default values for stage tarball URI and portage tree URI from
54 InstallProfile. These should be set by the FEs. also added services step to
55 ArchTemplate and coldplug/hotplug runlevels to the genkernel step.
56 Possibly fixed CC DHCP bug with -n. (thx agaffney)
57
58 14 Mar 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
59 Small fix for setting the default gateway. Also added feature to dialogfe.
60
61 7 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
62 Switched spawn() over to commands.getstatusoutput() instead of fork/waitpid
63
64 1 Mar 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
65 Fixed a bunch of true -> True typos. lots of em
66 only write new resolv.conf if there are dns servers listed.
67
68 1 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
69 Commented out 'display_on_tty8=True' in start_portmap()
70
71 18 Feb 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
72 added progress bar to dialogfe and fix logger bug in ArchTemplate.
73
74 18 Feb 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
75 Created GLISayWhat module. Renamed GLISayWhat to GLILocalization. Moved
76 lang parameter to __init__()
77
78 10 Feb 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
79 updates to TODO list.
80
81 6 Feb 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
82 Initial code for quickpkg GRP support. Fix loop to grab packages from
83 'emerge -p blah'
84
85 6 Feb 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
86 check for dhcp in the network stuff and emerge it if it is.
87 added quickpkg to TODO list
88
89 5 Feb 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
90 Changed the raising of 'warning' exceptions to a simple log of the error
91 so that the installer can continue.
92
93 3 Feb 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
94 Some big changes. First, changed most output to display_on_tty8.
95 Second, added log lines to all templates. Some smaller fixes such as typos.
96 Also did some cleanups of old commented lines.
97
98 1 Feb 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
99 Changed tty8 output to a fifo. Minor GLIStorageDevice fix thanks to BenUrban.
100 Undo change with fix. Escaping fix in GLIStorageDevice.py
101
102 31 Jan 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
103 more updates to TODO list. hopefully we'll soon start removing items instead
104 of adding them.
105
106 29 Jan 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
107 Changed the way GLIStorageDevice.get_max_sectors_for_resize() works
108
109 27 Jan 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
110 updated TODO list. (again)
111

114 fixed bootloader for udev and multiple kernels
115 fixed custom kernel config (again)
116
117 22 Jan 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
118 changed default value of CC._enable_ssh to True because this is smart.
119 added code to allow custom kernel .config. may be unstable and break. sorry.
120
121 21 Jan 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
122 partition() now waits until after it checks for partition flags before delete
123 the partitions :P
124
125 19 Jan 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
126 Updated TODO. swapon failure it temporarily not an error. swapon is an error
127 again. is_uri() check only performed on portage_tree_snapshot_uri if it isn't
128 blank.
129
130 19 Jan 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
131 Various fixes related to the add_users function. Still not yet finished.
132 Added things to the TODO list. Lets start using that!
133
134 18 Jan 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
135 Added code to x86Template to format newly created partitions. Also added
136 some error checking code. GLIStorageDevice passes 'minor' with data to
137 InstallProfile. Added partition() call back in ArchTemplate. Fixed NFS
138 mounting code.
139
140 18 Jan 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
141 Took out unnecessary setting of random livecd root password. the cd already
142 sets it randomly.
143
144 15 Jan 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
145 Took out an unneeded step from CC's run()
146
147 15 Jan 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
148 Attempt at detecting and adding windows partitions to lilo.
149
150 14 Jan 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
151 Added lilo code and cleaned up lilo code. also do_partitioning renamed to
152 partition. fixed misc exit_status => exitstatus typo.
153
154 11 Jan 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
155 Added basic code for resizing filesystems with pyparted. Fixed code for
156 resizing ntfs and ext2/3.
157
158 10 Jan 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
159 Fixed partition() in x86Template so that it scans through logicals and deletes
160 before deleting containing extended partition. Also clears partition table to
161 be safe before third pass.
162
163 08 Jan 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
164 Added mount_network_shares. not able to test it from this computer.
165 will test when i get back to school.
166 also added start_portmap to the client_controller as an always-do.
167 agaffney says this is needed for NFS mounts to work.
168
169 08 Jan 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
170 Partial rewrite of partitioning code in x86Template. No longer shells out to
171 parted to perform actions, now uses all pyparted calls. Code "works" in a
172 test, but still needs lots of TLC. Also modified tests/install.py to work
173 with x86Template and GLIClientConfiguration.
174
175 07 Jan 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
176 Initial move of partitioning code from ArchTemplate to x86Template.
177
178 07 Jan 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
179 Added grp_install and services to InstallProfile. forgot about the set_root_password
180
181 07 Jan 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
182 Fixed a few more edit_configs. fixed a chroot multicommand bug thanks to agaffney.
183 Test Install ran very well (skipping partitioning).
184
185 05 Jan 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
186 My mid-day update. rewrote mount_local_partitions for order of mounting. fixed prepare_chroot
187 rewrote configure_fstab and install_bootloader for new partition format. fixed a few _edit_configs.
188 some may still have eluded me.
189
190 05 Jan 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
191 Overhauled the entire ArchTemplate and did a lot of other misc fixes in order to test it.
192 Just finished mount_local_partitions in GLIArchitectureTemplate
193
194 05 Jan 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
195 Added get_num_sectors() to GLIStorageDevice.
196
197 04 Jan 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
198 GLIStorageDevice now tracks partition boundaries in sectors instead of cylinders.
199 Also now ignores <=100 sectors for free space. Removed remaining depends stuff
200 from GLIInstallProfile.
201
202 20 Dec 2004; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
203 GLIStorageDevice returns "unknown" instead of "" for get_type()
204
205 19 Dec 2004; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
206 Added get_extended_partition() to GLIStorageDevice. Rewrote get_logicals() to
207 actually work. Commented out resizability checking code for speed.
208
209 17 Dec 2004; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
210 Switched to using dumpe2fs to determine free space left in ext2/3 filesystem in
211 GLIStorageDevice at the suggestion of plors
212
213 10 Dec 2004; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
214 Added a function to GLIUtility to pull a value from a make.conf-style config
215 file. Minor type fix to GLIInstallProfile.py
216
217 09 Dec 2004; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
218 Added code in GLIArchitectureTemplate.py to write netmounts into fstab. Separated
219 network mounts from partition data structure in GLIInstallProfile
220
221 27 Nov 2004; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
222 Changed the way GLIStorageDevice.py determines the amount a ext2/3 filesystem
223 can be resized.
224
225 27 Oct 2004; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
226 Added some of the final functions to GLIInstallTemplate.
227 Yes this project is still active despite rare use of the Changelog!
228
229 11 Jun 2004; Nathaniel McCallum <npmccallum@gentoo.org>
230 Added the GLIPartitionTools.py file. This is a temporary insertion of
231 partitioning tools that will eventually go into their own package.
232
233 27 Mar 2004; Nathaniel McCallum <npmccallum@gentoo.org>
234 Added InstallProfileTODO.txt. Added GLIClientConfiguration.py (contains run-time
235 for the program). Added __init__(install_profile, client_configuration) to
236 GLI.InstallProfile. This sets install_profile and client_configuration once so as
237 to avoid constantly passing stuff every time we call a method.
238
239 26 Mar 2004; Nathaniel McCallum <npmccallum@gentoo.org>
240
241 Added another private method to GLI.InstallTemplate. _edit_config() modifies config
242 files without messing up all the other stuff in them. This will be used for making
243 changes to make.conf, rc.conf, /etc/conf.d/net, etc...
244
245 25 Mar 2004; Nathaniel McCallum <npmccallum@gentoo.org>
246
247 Added GLI.InstallTemplate framework. This is not yet functional. However, it does
248 have a few basic things. I added two private methods. One is _depends(). This
249 will be used for dependency checking (ie. unpacking a tarball requires that
250 partitioning has been done). The other is _exec_in_chroot(). This is the exact
251 same syntax as os.system(), however, instead of being run in the liveCD
252 environment, it runs in the chroot. This requires a bit of fork() magic, so I
253 isolated the code. Hope to work more this week to get this class formed...
254
255 14 Feb 2004; Eric Sammer <esammer@gentoo.org>
256
257 Added SAX parsing. Made GLI.InstallProfile a subclass of xml.sax.ContentHandler for
258 obvious reasons. Switched kernel_modules and users to be lists instead of tuples
259 to allow for easier modification (mutable, rather than immutable objects). Updated
260 existing pydoc and added more. Implemented body of GLI.InstallProfile.parse().
261 Cleaned file format of GLI.py a bit. Fixed all accessors to use self references.
262 Added initial unit test code.
263
264 9 Feb 2004; Eric Sammer <esammer@gentoo.org>
265
266 Added initial changelog. Setting up the basic structure of the CVS repository
267 for the project. Added the UML class diagram in docs. Added a skeletal GLI
268 python module. Added misc files such news, authors, etc.
