5 *GLI-0.01 (9 Feb 2004)
6
7 23 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
8 minor fix (hopefully) to livecd-kernel code. Removed call to mkvardb in
9 livecd-kernel code as it's now done by catalyst.
10
11 23 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
12 Added code to build_kernel() and emerge_kernel_sources() in ArchTemplate
13 to handle installing the livecd kernel into the new system.
14
15 22 Mar 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
16 should emerge hotplug and coldplug before adding them to runlevel.
17
18 21 Mar 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
19 took chroot out of grub_install command.
20
21 21 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
22 Changed chroot wrapper code in spawn() to write the wrapper the python way
23 instead of the bash way to avoid quote conflicts. Added
24 'logfile=self._compile_logfile' to a number of spawn() calls. Added new
25 hash_password() function to GLIUtility. Remove command to 'rm /tmp/spawn.sh'
26 as it breaks the piping.
27
28 20 Mar 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
29 Added the amd64ArchitectureTemplate, mostly a copy of x86 without lilo.
30
31 20 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
32 Added _get_packages_to_emerge() to GLIArchitectureTemplate and calls in
33 stage1() and stage2(). Added 'origminor' parameter to GLIStorageDevice and
34 GLIInstallProfile.
35
36 19 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
37 Fixed a couple bugs in add_netmount() in GLIInstallProfile. spawn() outputs
38 to the actual tty8 with display_on_tty8 flag. Compile output logfile moved
39 into /mnt/gentoo in prepare_chroot()
40
41 18 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
42 Add sigunmask.c contributed by d_m (on freenode) to counteract python's
43 retarted behavior regarding threads and signals. Add code to convert MB/%/*
44 to start/end sectors
45
46 17 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
47 Add 2>&1 to cmd in spawn()
48
49 16 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
50 Modified GLIUtility.exitsuccess() to work with return value from
51 commands.getstatusoutput instead of os.waitpid(). spawn() automatically
52 creates wrapper script for commands run inside chroot so multiple commands
53 and redirection can be used. Change exitsuccess() back. Added 'chmod a+x'
54 for the generated script from spawn()
55
56 16 Mar 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
57 Removed default values for stage tarball URI and portage tree URI from
58 InstallProfile. These should be set by the FEs. also added services step to
59 ArchTemplate and coldplug/hotplug runlevels to the genkernel step.
60 Possibly fixed CC DHCP bug with -n. (thx agaffney)
61
62 14 Mar 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
63 Small fix for setting the default gateway. Also added feature to dialogfe.
64
65 7 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
66 Switched spawn() over to commands.getstatusoutput() instead of fork/waitpid
67
68 1 Mar 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
69 Fixed a bunch of true -> True typos. lots of em
70 only write new resolv.conf if there are dns servers listed.
71
72 1 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
73 Commented out 'display_on_tty8=True' in start_portmap()
74
75 18 Feb 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
76 added progress bar to dialogfe and fix logger bug in ArchTemplate.
77
78 18 Feb 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>

80 lang parameter to __init__()
81
82 10 Feb 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
83 updates to TODO list.
84
85 6 Feb 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
86 Initial code for quickpkg GRP support. Fix loop to grab packages from
87 'emerge -p blah'
88
89 6 Feb 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
90 check for dhcp in the network stuff and emerge it if it is.
91 added quickpkg to TODO list
92
93 5 Feb 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
94 Changed the raising of 'warning' exceptions to a simple log of the error
95 so that the installer can continue.
96
97 3 Feb 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
98 Some big changes. First, changed most output to display_on_tty8.
99 Second, added log lines to all templates. Some smaller fixes such as typos.
100 Also did some cleanups of old commented lines.
101
102 1 Feb 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
103 Changed tty8 output to a fifo. Minor GLIStorageDevice fix thanks to BenUrban.
104 Undo change with fix. Escaping fix in GLIStorageDevice.py
105
106 31 Jan 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
107 more updates to TODO list. hopefully we'll soon start removing items instead
108 of adding them.
109
110 29 Jan 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
111 Changed the way GLIStorageDevice.get_max_sectors_for_resize() works
112
113 27 Jan 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
114 updated TODO list. (again)
115

118 fixed bootloader for udev and multiple kernels
119 fixed custom kernel config (again)
120
121 22 Jan 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
122 changed default value of CC._enable_ssh to True because this is smart.
123 added code to allow custom kernel .config. may be unstable and break. sorry.
124
125 21 Jan 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
126 partition() now waits until after it checks for partition flags before delete
127 the partitions :P
128
129 19 Jan 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
130 Updated TODO. swapon failure it temporarily not an error. swapon is an error
131 again. is_uri() check only performed on portage_tree_snapshot_uri if it isn't
132 blank.
133
134 19 Jan 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
135 Various fixes related to the add_users function. Still not yet finished.
136 Added things to the TODO list. Lets start using that!
137
138 18 Jan 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
139 Added code to x86Template to format newly created partitions. Also added
140 some error checking code. GLIStorageDevice passes 'minor' with data to
141 InstallProfile. Added partition() call back in ArchTemplate. Fixed NFS
142 mounting code.
143
144 18 Jan 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
145 Took out unnecessary setting of random livecd root password. the cd already
146 sets it randomly.
147
148 15 Jan 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
149 Took out an unneeded step from CC's run()
150
151 15 Jan 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
152 Attempt at detecting and adding windows partitions to lilo.
153
154 14 Jan 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
155 Added lilo code and cleaned up lilo code. also do_partitioning renamed to
156 partition. fixed misc exit_status => exitstatus typo.
157
158 11 Jan 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
159 Added basic code for resizing filesystems with pyparted. Fixed code for
160 resizing ntfs and ext2/3.
161
162 10 Jan 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
163 Fixed partition() in x86Template so that it scans through logicals and deletes
164 before deleting containing extended partition. Also clears partition table to
165 be safe before third pass.
166
167 08 Jan 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
168 Added mount_network_shares. not able to test it from this computer.
169 will test when i get back to school.
170 also added start_portmap to the client_controller as an always-do.
171 agaffney says this is needed for NFS mounts to work.
172
173 08 Jan 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
174 Partial rewrite of partitioning code in x86Template. No longer shells out to
175 parted to perform actions, now uses all pyparted calls. Code "works" in a
176 test, but still needs lots of TLC. Also modified tests/install.py to work
177 with x86Template and GLIClientConfiguration.
178
179 07 Jan 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
180 Initial move of partitioning code from ArchTemplate to x86Template.
181
182 07 Jan 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
183 Added grp_install and services to InstallProfile. forgot about the set_root_password
184
185 07 Jan 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
186 Fixed a few more edit_configs. fixed a chroot multicommand bug thanks to agaffney.
187 Test Install ran very well (skipping partitioning).
188
189 05 Jan 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
190 My mid-day update. rewrote mount_local_partitions for order of mounting. fixed prepare_chroot
191 rewrote configure_fstab and install_bootloader for new partition format. fixed a few _edit_configs.
192 some may still have eluded me.
193
194 05 Jan 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
195 Overhauled the entire ArchTemplate and did a lot of other misc fixes in order to test it.
196 Just finished mount_local_partitions in GLIArchitectureTemplate
197
198 05 Jan 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
199 Added get_num_sectors() to GLIStorageDevice.
200
201 04 Jan 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
202 GLIStorageDevice now tracks partition boundaries in sectors instead of cylinders.
203 Also now ignores <=100 sectors for free space. Removed remaining depends stuff
204 from GLIInstallProfile.
205
206 20 Dec 2004; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
207 GLIStorageDevice returns "unknown" instead of "" for get_type()
208
209 19 Dec 2004; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
210 Added get_extended_partition() to GLIStorageDevice. Rewrote get_logicals() to
211 actually work. Commented out resizability checking code for speed.
212
213 17 Dec 2004; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
214 Switched to using dumpe2fs to determine free space left in ext2/3 filesystem in
215 GLIStorageDevice at the suggestion of plors
216
217 10 Dec 2004; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
218 Added a function to GLIUtility to pull a value from a make.conf-style config
219 file. Minor type fix to GLIInstallProfile.py
220
221 09 Dec 2004; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
222 Added code in GLIArchitectureTemplate.py to write netmounts into fstab. Separated
223 network mounts from partition data structure in GLIInstallProfile
224
225 27 Nov 2004; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
226 Changed the way GLIStorageDevice.py determines the amount a ext2/3 filesystem
227 can be resized.
228
229 27 Oct 2004; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
230 Added some of the final functions to GLIInstallTemplate.
231 Yes this project is still active despite rare use of the Changelog!
232
233 11 Jun 2004; Nathaniel McCallum <npmccallum@gentoo.org>
234 Added the GLIPartitionTools.py file. This is a temporary insertion of
235 partitioning tools that will eventually go into their own package.
236
237 27 Mar 2004; Nathaniel McCallum <npmccallum@gentoo.org>
238 Added InstallProfileTODO.txt. Added GLIClientConfiguration.py (contains run-time
239 for the program). Added __init__(install_profile, client_configuration) to
240 GLI.InstallProfile. This sets install_profile and client_configuration once so as
241 to avoid constantly passing stuff every time we call a method.
242
243 26 Mar 2004; Nathaniel McCallum <npmccallum@gentoo.org>
244
245 Added another private method to GLI.InstallTemplate. _edit_config() modifies config
246 files without messing up all the other stuff in them. This will be used for making
247 changes to make.conf, rc.conf, /etc/conf.d/net, etc...
248
249 25 Mar 2004; Nathaniel McCallum <npmccallum@gentoo.org>
250
251 Added GLI.InstallTemplate framework. This is not yet functional. However, it does
252 have a few basic things. I added two private methods. One is _depends(). This
253 will be used for dependency checking (ie. unpacking a tarball requires that
254 partitioning has been done). The other is _exec_in_chroot(). This is the exact
255 same syntax as os.system(), however, instead of being run in the liveCD
256 environment, it runs in the chroot. This requires a bit of fork() magic, so I
257 isolated the code. Hope to work more this week to get this class formed...
258
259 14 Feb 2004; Eric Sammer <esammer@gentoo.org>
260
261 Added SAX parsing. Made GLI.InstallProfile a subclass of xml.sax.ContentHandler for
262 obvious reasons. Switched kernel_modules and users to be lists instead of tuples
263 to allow for easier modification (mutable, rather than immutable objects). Updated
264 existing pydoc and added more. Implemented body of GLI.InstallProfile.parse().
265 Cleaned file format of GLI.py a bit. Fixed all accessors to use self references.
266 Added initial unit test code.
267
268 9 Feb 2004; Eric Sammer <esammer@gentoo.org>
269
270 Added initial changelog. Setting up the basic structure of the CVS repository
271 for the project. Added the UML class diagram in docs. Added a skeletal GLI
272 python module. Added misc files such news, authors, etc.
