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 livecd-kernel code pulls PKGDIR and PORTAGE_TMPDIR from make.conf info in
16 the install profile if available.
17
18 23 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
19 Added code to build_kernel() and emerge_kernel_sources() in ArchTemplate
20 to handle installing the livecd kernel into the new system.
21
22 22 Mar 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
23 should emerge hotplug and coldplug before adding them to runlevel.
24
25 21 Mar 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
26 took chroot out of grub_install command.
27
28 21 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
29 Changed chroot wrapper code in spawn() to write the wrapper the python way
30 instead of the bash way to avoid quote conflicts. Added
31 'logfile=self._compile_logfile' to a number of spawn() calls. Added new
32 hash_password() function to GLIUtility. Remove command to 'rm /tmp/spawn.sh'
33 as it breaks the piping.
34
35 20 Mar 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
36 Added the amd64ArchitectureTemplate, mostly a copy of x86 without lilo.
37
38 20 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
39 Added _get_packages_to_emerge() to GLIArchitectureTemplate and calls in
40 stage1() and stage2(). Added 'origminor' parameter to GLIStorageDevice and
41 GLIInstallProfile.
42
43 19 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
44 Fixed a couple bugs in add_netmount() in GLIInstallProfile. spawn() outputs
45 to the actual tty8 with display_on_tty8 flag. Compile output logfile moved
46 into /mnt/gentoo in prepare_chroot()
47
48 18 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
49 Add sigunmask.c contributed by d_m (on freenode) to counteract python's
50 retarted behavior regarding threads and signals. Add code to convert MB/%/*
51 to start/end sectors
52
53 17 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
54 Add 2>&1 to cmd in spawn()
55
56 16 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
57 Modified GLIUtility.exitsuccess() to work with return value from
58 commands.getstatusoutput instead of os.waitpid(). spawn() automatically
59 creates wrapper script for commands run inside chroot so multiple commands
60 and redirection can be used. Change exitsuccess() back. Added 'chmod a+x'
61 for the generated script from spawn()
62
63 16 Mar 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
64 Removed default values for stage tarball URI and portage tree URI from
65 InstallProfile. These should be set by the FEs. also added services step to
66 ArchTemplate and coldplug/hotplug runlevels to the genkernel step.
67 Possibly fixed CC DHCP bug with -n. (thx agaffney)
68
69 14 Mar 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
70 Small fix for setting the default gateway. Also added feature to dialogfe.
71
72 7 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
73 Switched spawn() over to commands.getstatusoutput() instead of fork/waitpid
74
75 1 Mar 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
76 Fixed a bunch of true -> True typos. lots of em
77 only write new resolv.conf if there are dns servers listed.
78
79 1 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
80 Commented out 'display_on_tty8=True' in start_portmap()
81
82 18 Feb 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
83 added progress bar to dialogfe and fix logger bug in ArchTemplate.
84
85 18 Feb 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
86 Created GLISayWhat module. Renamed GLISayWhat to GLILocalization. Moved
87 lang parameter to __init__()

90 updates to TODO list.
91
92 6 Feb 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
93 Initial code for quickpkg GRP support. Fix loop to grab packages from

95
96 6 Feb 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
97 check for dhcp in the network stuff and emerge it if it is.
98 added quickpkg to TODO list
99
100 5 Feb 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
101 Changed the raising of 'warning' exceptions to a simple log of the error
102 so that the installer can continue.
103
104 3 Feb 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
105 Some big changes. First, changed most output to display_on_tty8.
106 Second, added log lines to all templates. Some smaller fixes such as typos.
107 Also did some cleanups of old commented lines.
108
109 1 Feb 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
110 Changed tty8 output to a fifo. Minor GLIStorageDevice fix thanks to BenUrban.
111 Undo change with fix. Escaping fix in GLIStorageDevice.py
112
113 31 Jan 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
114 more updates to TODO list. hopefully we'll soon start removing items instead
115 of adding them.
116
117 29 Jan 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
118 Changed the way GLIStorageDevice.get_max_sectors_for_resize() works
119
120 27 Jan 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
121 updated TODO list. (again)
122

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