5 *GLI-0.01 (9 Feb 2004)
6
7 25 Mar 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
8 changed InstallProfile to remove is_uri check on kernel, stage, and portage
9 URIs. The blank uri check has been commented out.
10
11 25 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
12 set_stage_tarball_uri() doesn't raise an exception on a blank string.
13
14 24 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
15 GRP-ish quickpkg code pulls PKGDIR and PORTAGE_TMPDIR from make.conf info in
16 the install profile if available. Commented out spawn() debugging prints
17
18 23 Mar 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
19 small changes to setup_network_post. moved adding to runlevel of net.x to
20 after the device gets symlinked. added domainname runlevel command.
21
22 23 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
23 minor fix (hopefully) to livecd-kernel code. Removed call to mkvardb in
24 livecd-kernel code as it's now done by catalyst. Switch _emerge() call to
25 spawn() call in livecd-kernel code to pass environment variables.
26 livecd-kernel code pulls PKGDIR and PORTAGE_TMPDIR from make.conf info in
27 the install profile if available.
28
29 23 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
30 Added code to build_kernel() and emerge_kernel_sources() in ArchTemplate
31 to handle installing the livecd kernel into the new system.
32
33 22 Mar 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
34 should emerge hotplug and coldplug before adding them to runlevel.
35
36 21 Mar 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
37 took chroot out of grub_install command.
38
39 21 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
40 Changed chroot wrapper code in spawn() to write the wrapper the python way
41 instead of the bash way to avoid quote conflicts. Added
42 'logfile=self._compile_logfile' to a number of spawn() calls. Added new
43 hash_password() function to GLIUtility. Remove command to 'rm /tmp/spawn.sh'
44 as it breaks the piping.
45
46 20 Mar 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
47 Added the amd64ArchitectureTemplate, mostly a copy of x86 without lilo.
48
49 20 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
50 Added _get_packages_to_emerge() to GLIArchitectureTemplate and calls in
51 stage1() and stage2(). Added 'origminor' parameter to GLIStorageDevice and
52 GLIInstallProfile.
53
54 19 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
55 Fixed a couple bugs in add_netmount() in GLIInstallProfile. spawn() outputs
56 to the actual tty8 with display_on_tty8 flag. Compile output logfile moved
57 into /mnt/gentoo in prepare_chroot()
58
59 18 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
60 Add sigunmask.c contributed by d_m (on freenode) to counteract python's
61 retarted behavior regarding threads and signals. Add code to convert MB/%/*
62 to start/end sectors
63
64 17 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
65 Add 2>&1 to cmd in spawn()
66
67 16 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
68 Modified GLIUtility.exitsuccess() to work with return value from
69 commands.getstatusoutput instead of os.waitpid(). spawn() automatically
70 creates wrapper script for commands run inside chroot so multiple commands
71 and redirection can be used. Change exitsuccess() back. Added 'chmod a+x'
72 for the generated script from spawn()
73
74 16 Mar 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
75 Removed default values for stage tarball URI and portage tree URI from
76 InstallProfile. These should be set by the FEs. also added services step to
77 ArchTemplate and coldplug/hotplug runlevels to the genkernel step.
78 Possibly fixed CC DHCP bug with -n. (thx agaffney)
79
80 14 Mar 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
81 Small fix for setting the default gateway. Also added feature to dialogfe.
82
83 7 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
84 Switched spawn() over to commands.getstatusoutput() instead of fork/waitpid
85
86 1 Mar 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
87 Fixed a bunch of true -> True typos. lots of em
88 only write new resolv.conf if there are dns servers listed.
89
90 1 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
91 Commented out 'display_on_tty8=True' in start_portmap()
92
93 18 Feb 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
94 added progress bar to dialogfe and fix logger bug in ArchTemplate.
95
96 18 Feb 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
97 Created GLISayWhat module. Renamed GLISayWhat to GLILocalization. Moved
98 lang parameter to __init__()
99
100 10 Feb 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
101 updates to TODO list.
102
103 6 Feb 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
104 Initial code for quickpkg GRP support. Fix loop to grab packages from
105 'emerge -p blah'
106
107 6 Feb 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
108 check for dhcp in the network stuff and emerge it if it is.
109 added quickpkg to TODO list
110
111 5 Feb 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
112 Changed the raising of 'warning' exceptions to a simple log of the error
113 so that the installer can continue.
114
115 3 Feb 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
116 Some big changes. First, changed most output to display_on_tty8.
117 Second, added log lines to all templates. Some smaller fixes such as typos.
118 Also did some cleanups of old commented lines.
119
120 1 Feb 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
121 Changed tty8 output to a fifo. Minor GLIStorageDevice fix thanks to BenUrban.
122 Undo change with fix. Escaping fix in GLIStorageDevice.py
123
124 31 Jan 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
125 more updates to TODO list. hopefully we'll soon start removing items instead
126 of adding them.
127
128 29 Jan 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
129 Changed the way GLIStorageDevice.get_max_sectors_for_resize() works
130
131 27 Jan 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
132 updated TODO list. (again)
133
134 25 Jan 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
135 changed output of portmap start to display_on_tty8.
136 fixed bootloader for udev and multiple kernels
137 fixed custom kernel config (again)
138
139 22 Jan 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
140 changed default value of CC._enable_ssh to True because this is smart.
141 added code to allow custom kernel .config. may be unstable and break. sorry.
142
143 21 Jan 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
144 partition() now waits until after it checks for partition flags before delete
145 the partitions :P
146
147 19 Jan 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
148 Updated TODO. swapon failure it temporarily not an error. swapon is an error
149 again. is_uri() check only performed on portage_tree_snapshot_uri if it isn't
150 blank.
151
152 19 Jan 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
153 Various fixes related to the add_users function. Still not yet finished.
154 Added things to the TODO list. Lets start using that!
155
156 18 Jan 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
157 Added code to x86Template to format newly created partitions. Also added
158 some error checking code. GLIStorageDevice passes 'minor' with data to
159 InstallProfile. Added partition() call back in ArchTemplate. Fixed NFS
160 mounting code.
161
162 18 Jan 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
163 Took out unnecessary setting of random livecd root password. the cd already
164 sets it randomly.
165
166 15 Jan 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
167 Took out an unneeded step from CC's run()
168
169 15 Jan 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
170 Attempt at detecting and adding windows partitions to lilo.
171
172 14 Jan 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
173 Added lilo code and cleaned up lilo code. also do_partitioning renamed to
174 partition. fixed misc exit_status => exitstatus typo.
175
176 11 Jan 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
177 Added basic code for resizing filesystems with pyparted. Fixed code for
178 resizing ntfs and ext2/3.
179
180 10 Jan 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
181 Fixed partition() in x86Template so that it scans through logicals and deletes
182 before deleting containing extended partition. Also clears partition table to
183 be safe before third pass.
184
185 08 Jan 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
186 Added mount_network_shares. not able to test it from this computer.
187 will test when i get back to school.
188 also added start_portmap to the client_controller as an always-do.
189 agaffney says this is needed for NFS mounts to work.
190
191 08 Jan 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
192 Partial rewrite of partitioning code in x86Template. No longer shells out to
193 parted to perform actions, now uses all pyparted calls. Code "works" in a
194 test, but still needs lots of TLC. Also modified tests/install.py to work
195 with x86Template and GLIClientConfiguration.
196
197 07 Jan 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
198 Initial move of partitioning code from ArchTemplate to x86Template.
199
200 07 Jan 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
201 Added grp_install and services to InstallProfile. forgot about the set_root_password
202
203 07 Jan 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
204 Fixed a few more edit_configs. fixed a chroot multicommand bug thanks to agaffney.
205 Test Install ran very well (skipping partitioning).
206
207 05 Jan 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
208 My mid-day update. rewrote mount_local_partitions for order of mounting. fixed prepare_chroot
209 rewrote configure_fstab and install_bootloader for new partition format. fixed a few _edit_configs.
210 some may still have eluded me.
211
212 05 Jan 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
213 Overhauled the entire ArchTemplate and did a lot of other misc fixes in order to test it.
214 Just finished mount_local_partitions in GLIArchitectureTemplate
215
216 05 Jan 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
217 Added get_num_sectors() to GLIStorageDevice.
218
219 04 Jan 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
220 GLIStorageDevice now tracks partition boundaries in sectors instead of cylinders.
221 Also now ignores <=100 sectors for free space. Removed remaining depends stuff
222 from GLIInstallProfile.
223
224 20 Dec 2004; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
225 GLIStorageDevice returns "unknown" instead of "" for get_type()
226
227 19 Dec 2004; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
228 Added get_extended_partition() to GLIStorageDevice. Rewrote get_logicals() to
229 actually work. Commented out resizability checking code for speed.
230
231 17 Dec 2004; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
232 Switched to using dumpe2fs to determine free space left in ext2/3 filesystem in
233 GLIStorageDevice at the suggestion of plors
234
235 10 Dec 2004; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
236 Added a function to GLIUtility to pull a value from a make.conf-style config
237 file. Minor type fix to GLIInstallProfile.py
238
239 09 Dec 2004; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
240 Added code in GLIArchitectureTemplate.py to write netmounts into fstab. Separated
241 network mounts from partition data structure in GLIInstallProfile
242
243 27 Nov 2004; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
244 Changed the way GLIStorageDevice.py determines the amount a ext2/3 filesystem
245 can be resized.
246
247 27 Oct 2004; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
248 Added some of the final functions to GLIInstallTemplate.
249 Yes this project is still active despite rare use of the Changelog!
250
251 11 Jun 2004; Nathaniel McCallum <npmccallum@gentoo.org>
252 Added the GLIPartitionTools.py file. This is a temporary insertion of
253 partitioning tools that will eventually go into their own package.
254
255 27 Mar 2004; Nathaniel McCallum <npmccallum@gentoo.org>
256 Added InstallProfileTODO.txt. Added GLIClientConfiguration.py (contains run-time
257 for the program). Added __init__(install_profile, client_configuration) to
258 GLI.InstallProfile. This sets install_profile and client_configuration once so as
259 to avoid constantly passing stuff every time we call a method.
260
261 26 Mar 2004; Nathaniel McCallum <npmccallum@gentoo.org>
262
263 Added another private method to GLI.InstallTemplate. _edit_config() modifies config
264 files without messing up all the other stuff in them. This will be used for making
265 changes to make.conf, rc.conf, /etc/conf.d/net, etc...
266
267 25 Mar 2004; Nathaniel McCallum <npmccallum@gentoo.org>
268
269 Added GLI.InstallTemplate framework. This is not yet functional. However, it does
270 have a few basic things. I added two private methods. One is _depends(). This
271 will be used for dependency checking (ie. unpacking a tarball requires that
272 partitioning has been done). The other is _exec_in_chroot(). This is the exact
273 same syntax as os.system(), however, instead of being run in the liveCD
274 environment, it runs in the chroot. This requires a bit of fork() magic, so I
275 isolated the code. Hope to work more this week to get this class formed...
276
277 14 Feb 2004; Eric Sammer <esammer@gentoo.org>
278
279 Added SAX parsing. Made GLI.InstallProfile a subclass of xml.sax.ContentHandler for
280 obvious reasons. Switched kernel_modules and users to be lists instead of tuples
281 to allow for easier modification (mutable, rather than immutable objects). Updated
282 existing pydoc and added more. Implemented body of GLI.InstallProfile.parse().
283 Cleaned file format of GLI.py a bit. Fixed all accessors to use self references.
284 Added initial unit test code.
285
286 9 Feb 2004; Eric Sammer <esammer@gentoo.org>
287
288 Added initial changelog. Setting up the basic structure of the CVS repository
289 for the project. Added the UML class diagram in docs. Added a skeletal GLI
290 python module. Added misc files such news, authors, etc.
