5 *GLI-0.01 (9 Feb 2004)
6
7 23 Mar 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
8 small changes to setup_network_post. moved adding to runlevel of net.x to
9 after the device gets symlinked. added domainname runlevel command.
10
11 23 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
12 minor fix (hopefully) to livecd-kernel code. Removed call to mkvardb in
13 livecd-kernel code as it's now done by catalyst. Switch _emerge() call to
14 spawn() call in livecd-kernel code to pass environment variables.
15
16 23 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
17 Added code to build_kernel() and emerge_kernel_sources() in ArchTemplate
18 to handle installing the livecd kernel into the new system.
19
20 22 Mar 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
21 should emerge hotplug and coldplug before adding them to runlevel.
22
23 21 Mar 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
24 took chroot out of grub_install command.
25
26 21 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
27 Changed chroot wrapper code in spawn() to write the wrapper the python way
28 instead of the bash way to avoid quote conflicts. Added
29 'logfile=self._compile_logfile' to a number of spawn() calls. Added new
30 hash_password() function to GLIUtility. Remove command to 'rm /tmp/spawn.sh'
31 as it breaks the piping.
32
33 20 Mar 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
34 Added the amd64ArchitectureTemplate, mostly a copy of x86 without lilo.
35
36 20 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
37 Added _get_packages_to_emerge() to GLIArchitectureTemplate and calls in
38 stage1() and stage2(). Added 'origminor' parameter to GLIStorageDevice and
39 GLIInstallProfile.
40
41 19 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
42 Fixed a couple bugs in add_netmount() in GLIInstallProfile. spawn() outputs
43 to the actual tty8 with display_on_tty8 flag. Compile output logfile moved
44 into /mnt/gentoo in prepare_chroot()
45
46 18 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
47 Add sigunmask.c contributed by d_m (on freenode) to counteract python's
48 retarted behavior regarding threads and signals. Add code to convert MB/%/*
49 to start/end sectors
50
51 17 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
52 Add 2>&1 to cmd in spawn()
53
54 16 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
55 Modified GLIUtility.exitsuccess() to work with return value from
56 commands.getstatusoutput instead of os.waitpid(). spawn() automatically
57 creates wrapper script for commands run inside chroot so multiple commands
58 and redirection can be used. Change exitsuccess() back. Added 'chmod a+x'
59 for the generated script from spawn()
60
61 16 Mar 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
62 Removed default values for stage tarball URI and portage tree URI from
63 InstallProfile. These should be set by the FEs. also added services step to
64 ArchTemplate and coldplug/hotplug runlevels to the genkernel step.
65 Possibly fixed CC DHCP bug with -n. (thx agaffney)
66
67 14 Mar 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
68 Small fix for setting the default gateway. Also added feature to dialogfe.
69
70 7 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
71 Switched spawn() over to commands.getstatusoutput() instead of fork/waitpid
72
73 1 Mar 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
74 Fixed a bunch of true -> True typos. lots of em
75 only write new resolv.conf if there are dns servers listed.
76
77 1 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
78 Commented out 'display_on_tty8=True' in start_portmap()
79
80 18 Feb 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
81 added progress bar to dialogfe and fix logger bug in ArchTemplate.
82
83 18 Feb 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
84 Created GLISayWhat module. Renamed GLISayWhat to GLILocalization. Moved
85 lang parameter to __init__()
86
87 10 Feb 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
88 updates to TODO list.
89
90 6 Feb 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
91 Initial code for quickpkg GRP support. Fix loop to grab packages from
92 'emerge -p blah'
93
94 6 Feb 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
95 check for dhcp in the network stuff and emerge it if it is.
96 added quickpkg to TODO list
97
98 5 Feb 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
99 Changed the raising of 'warning' exceptions to a simple log of the error
100 so that the installer can continue.
101
102 3 Feb 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
103 Some big changes. First, changed most output to display_on_tty8.
104 Second, added log lines to all templates. Some smaller fixes such as typos.
105 Also did some cleanups of old commented lines.
106
107 1 Feb 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
108 Changed tty8 output to a fifo. Minor GLIStorageDevice fix thanks to BenUrban.
109 Undo change with fix. Escaping fix in GLIStorageDevice.py
110
111 31 Jan 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
112 more updates to TODO list. hopefully we'll soon start removing items instead
113 of adding them.
114
115 29 Jan 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
116 Changed the way GLIStorageDevice.get_max_sectors_for_resize() works
117
118 27 Jan 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
119 updated TODO list. (again)
120

123 fixed bootloader for udev and multiple kernels
124 fixed custom kernel config (again)
125
126 22 Jan 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
127 changed default value of CC._enable_ssh to True because this is smart.
128 added code to allow custom kernel .config. may be unstable and break. sorry.
129
130 21 Jan 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
131 partition() now waits until after it checks for partition flags before delete
132 the partitions :P
133
134 19 Jan 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
135 Updated TODO. swapon failure it temporarily not an error. swapon is an error
136 again. is_uri() check only performed on portage_tree_snapshot_uri if it isn't
137 blank.
138
139 19 Jan 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
140 Various fixes related to the add_users function. Still not yet finished.
141 Added things to the TODO list. Lets start using that!
142
143 18 Jan 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
144 Added code to x86Template to format newly created partitions. Also added
145 some error checking code. GLIStorageDevice passes 'minor' with data to
146 InstallProfile. Added partition() call back in ArchTemplate. Fixed NFS
147 mounting code.
148
149 18 Jan 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
150 Took out unnecessary setting of random livecd root password. the cd already
151 sets it randomly.
152
153 15 Jan 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
154 Took out an unneeded step from CC's run()
155
156 15 Jan 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
157 Attempt at detecting and adding windows partitions to lilo.
158
159 14 Jan 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
160 Added lilo code and cleaned up lilo code. also do_partitioning renamed to
161 partition. fixed misc exit_status => exitstatus typo.
162
163 11 Jan 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
164 Added basic code for resizing filesystems with pyparted. Fixed code for
165 resizing ntfs and ext2/3.
166
167 10 Jan 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
168 Fixed partition() in x86Template so that it scans through logicals and deletes
169 before deleting containing extended partition. Also clears partition table to
170 be safe before third pass.
171
172 08 Jan 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
173 Added mount_network_shares. not able to test it from this computer.
174 will test when i get back to school.
175 also added start_portmap to the client_controller as an always-do.
176 agaffney says this is needed for NFS mounts to work.
177
178 08 Jan 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
179 Partial rewrite of partitioning code in x86Template. No longer shells out to
180 parted to perform actions, now uses all pyparted calls. Code "works" in a
181 test, but still needs lots of TLC. Also modified tests/install.py to work
182 with x86Template and GLIClientConfiguration.
183
184 07 Jan 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
185 Initial move of partitioning code from ArchTemplate to x86Template.
186
187 07 Jan 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
188 Added grp_install and services to InstallProfile. forgot about the set_root_password
189
190 07 Jan 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
191 Fixed a few more edit_configs. fixed a chroot multicommand bug thanks to agaffney.
192 Test Install ran very well (skipping partitioning).
193
194 05 Jan 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
195 My mid-day update. rewrote mount_local_partitions for order of mounting. fixed prepare_chroot
196 rewrote configure_fstab and install_bootloader for new partition format. fixed a few _edit_configs.
197 some may still have eluded me.
198
199 05 Jan 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
200 Overhauled the entire ArchTemplate and did a lot of other misc fixes in order to test it.
201 Just finished mount_local_partitions in GLIArchitectureTemplate
202
203 05 Jan 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
204 Added get_num_sectors() to GLIStorageDevice.
205
206 04 Jan 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
207 GLIStorageDevice now tracks partition boundaries in sectors instead of cylinders.
208 Also now ignores <=100 sectors for free space. Removed remaining depends stuff
209 from GLIInstallProfile.
210
211 20 Dec 2004; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
212 GLIStorageDevice returns "unknown" instead of "" for get_type()
213
214 19 Dec 2004; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
215 Added get_extended_partition() to GLIStorageDevice. Rewrote get_logicals() to
216 actually work. Commented out resizability checking code for speed.
217
218 17 Dec 2004; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
219 Switched to using dumpe2fs to determine free space left in ext2/3 filesystem in
220 GLIStorageDevice at the suggestion of plors
221
222 10 Dec 2004; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
223 Added a function to GLIUtility to pull a value from a make.conf-style config
224 file. Minor type fix to GLIInstallProfile.py
225
226 09 Dec 2004; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
227 Added code in GLIArchitectureTemplate.py to write netmounts into fstab. Separated
228 network mounts from partition data structure in GLIInstallProfile
229
230 27 Nov 2004; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
231 Changed the way GLIStorageDevice.py determines the amount a ext2/3 filesystem
232 can be resized.
233
234 27 Oct 2004; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
235 Added some of the final functions to GLIInstallTemplate.
236 Yes this project is still active despite rare use of the Changelog!
237
238 11 Jun 2004; Nathaniel McCallum <npmccallum@gentoo.org>
239 Added the GLIPartitionTools.py file. This is a temporary insertion of
240 partitioning tools that will eventually go into their own package.
241
242 27 Mar 2004; Nathaniel McCallum <npmccallum@gentoo.org>
243 Added InstallProfileTODO.txt. Added GLIClientConfiguration.py (contains run-time
244 for the program). Added __init__(install_profile, client_configuration) to
245 GLI.InstallProfile. This sets install_profile and client_configuration once so as
246 to avoid constantly passing stuff every time we call a method.
247
248 26 Mar 2004; Nathaniel McCallum <npmccallum@gentoo.org>
249
250 Added another private method to GLI.InstallTemplate. _edit_config() modifies config
251 files without messing up all the other stuff in them. This will be used for making
252 changes to make.conf, rc.conf, /etc/conf.d/net, etc...
253
254 25 Mar 2004; Nathaniel McCallum <npmccallum@gentoo.org>
255
256 Added GLI.InstallTemplate framework. This is not yet functional. However, it does
257 have a few basic things. I added two private methods. One is _depends(). This
258 will be used for dependency checking (ie. unpacking a tarball requires that
259 partitioning has been done). The other is _exec_in_chroot(). This is the exact
260 same syntax as os.system(), however, instead of being run in the liveCD
261 environment, it runs in the chroot. This requires a bit of fork() magic, so I
262 isolated the code. Hope to work more this week to get this class formed...
263
264 14 Feb 2004; Eric Sammer <esammer@gentoo.org>
265
266 Added SAX parsing. Made GLI.InstallProfile a subclass of xml.sax.ContentHandler for
267 obvious reasons. Switched kernel_modules and users to be lists instead of tuples
268 to allow for easier modification (mutable, rather than immutable objects). Updated
269 existing pydoc and added more. Implemented body of GLI.InstallProfile.parse().
270 Cleaned file format of GLI.py a bit. Fixed all accessors to use self references.
271 Added initial unit test code.
272
273 9 Feb 2004; Eric Sammer <esammer@gentoo.org>
274
275 Added initial changelog. Setting up the basic structure of the CVS repository
276 for the project. Added the UML class diagram in docs. Added a skeletal GLI
277 python module. Added misc files such news, authors, etc.
