7 26 Mar 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
8 Changed the print statements to logging in the partitioning BE code.
9 the logger may need to be imported to the x86archtemplate. unknown yet.
10
11 25 Mar 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
12 changed InstallProfile to remove is_uri check on kernel, stage, and portage
13 URIs. The blank uri check has been commented out.
14 ripped out error checking of set_services. this is done by _add_to_runlevel.
15
16 25 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
17 set_stage_tarball_uri() doesn't raise an exception on a blank string.
18
19 24 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
20 GRP-ish quickpkg code pulls PKGDIR and PORTAGE_TMPDIR from make.conf info in
21 the install profile if available. Commented out spawn() debugging prints
22
23 23 Mar 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
24 small changes to setup_network_post. moved adding to runlevel of net.x to
25 after the device gets symlinked. added domainname runlevel command.
26
27 23 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
28 minor fix (hopefully) to livecd-kernel code. Removed call to mkvardb in
29 livecd-kernel code as it's now done by catalyst. Switch _emerge() call to
30 spawn() call in livecd-kernel code to pass environment variables.
31 livecd-kernel code pulls PKGDIR and PORTAGE_TMPDIR from make.conf info in
32 the install profile if available.
33
34 23 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
35 Added code to build_kernel() and emerge_kernel_sources() in ArchTemplate
36 to handle installing the livecd kernel into the new system.
37
38 22 Mar 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
39 should emerge hotplug and coldplug before adding them to runlevel.
40
41 21 Mar 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
42 took chroot out of grub_install command.
43
44 21 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
45 Changed chroot wrapper code in spawn() to write the wrapper the python way
46 instead of the bash way to avoid quote conflicts. Added
47 'logfile=self._compile_logfile' to a number of spawn() calls. Added new
48 hash_password() function to GLIUtility. Remove command to 'rm /tmp/spawn.sh'
49 as it breaks the piping.
50
51 20 Mar 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
52 Added the amd64ArchitectureTemplate, mostly a copy of x86 without lilo.
53
54 20 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
55 Added _get_packages_to_emerge() to GLIArchitectureTemplate and calls in
56 stage1() and stage2(). Added 'origminor' parameter to GLIStorageDevice and
57 GLIInstallProfile.
58
59 19 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
60 Fixed a couple bugs in add_netmount() in GLIInstallProfile. spawn() outputs
61 to the actual tty8 with display_on_tty8 flag. Compile output logfile moved
62 into /mnt/gentoo in prepare_chroot()
63
64 18 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
65 Add sigunmask.c contributed by d_m (on freenode) to counteract python's
66 retarted behavior regarding threads and signals. Add code to convert MB/%/*
67 to start/end sectors
68
69 17 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
70 Add 2>&1 to cmd in spawn()
71
72 16 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
73 Modified GLIUtility.exitsuccess() to work with return value from
74 commands.getstatusoutput instead of os.waitpid(). spawn() automatically
75 creates wrapper script for commands run inside chroot so multiple commands
76 and redirection can be used. Change exitsuccess() back. Added 'chmod a+x'
77 for the generated script from spawn()
78
79 16 Mar 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
80 Removed default values for stage tarball URI and portage tree URI from
81 InstallProfile. These should be set by the FEs. also added services step to
82 ArchTemplate and coldplug/hotplug runlevels to the genkernel step.
83 Possibly fixed CC DHCP bug with -n. (thx agaffney)
84
85 14 Mar 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
86 Small fix for setting the default gateway. Also added feature to dialogfe.
87
88 7 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
89 Switched spawn() over to commands.getstatusoutput() instead of fork/waitpid
90
91 1 Mar 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
92 Fixed a bunch of true -> True typos. lots of em
93 only write new resolv.conf if there are dns servers listed.
94
95 1 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
96 Commented out 'display_on_tty8=True' in start_portmap()
97
98 18 Feb 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
99 added progress bar to dialogfe and fix logger bug in ArchTemplate.
100
101 18 Feb 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>

111
112 6 Feb 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
113 check for dhcp in the network stuff and emerge it if it is.
114 added quickpkg to TODO list
115
116 5 Feb 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
117 Changed the raising of 'warning' exceptions to a simple log of the error
118 so that the installer can continue.
119
120 3 Feb 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
121 Some big changes. First, changed most output to display_on_tty8.
122 Second, added log lines to all templates. Some smaller fixes such as typos.
123 Also did some cleanups of old commented lines.
124
125 1 Feb 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
126 Changed tty8 output to a fifo. Minor GLIStorageDevice fix thanks to BenUrban.
127 Undo change with fix. Escaping fix in GLIStorageDevice.py
128
129 31 Jan 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
130 more updates to TODO list. hopefully we'll soon start removing items instead
131 of adding them.
132
133 29 Jan 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
134 Changed the way GLIStorageDevice.get_max_sectors_for_resize() works
135
136 27 Jan 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
137 updated TODO list. (again)
138

144 22 Jan 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
145 changed default value of CC._enable_ssh to True because this is smart.
146 added code to allow custom kernel .config. may be unstable and break. sorry.
147
148 21 Jan 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
149 partition() now waits until after it checks for partition flags before delete
150 the partitions :P
151
152 19 Jan 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
153 Updated TODO. swapon failure it temporarily not an error. swapon is an error
154 again. is_uri() check only performed on portage_tree_snapshot_uri if it isn't
155 blank.
156
157 19 Jan 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
158 Various fixes related to the add_users function. Still not yet finished.
159 Added things to the TODO list. Lets start using that!
160
161 18 Jan 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
162 Added code to x86Template to format newly created partitions. Also added
163 some error checking code. GLIStorageDevice passes 'minor' with data to
164 InstallProfile. Added partition() call back in ArchTemplate. Fixed NFS
165 mounting code.
166
167 18 Jan 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
168 Took out unnecessary setting of random livecd root password. the cd already
169 sets it randomly.
170
171 15 Jan 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
172 Took out an unneeded step from CC's run()
173
174 15 Jan 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
175 Attempt at detecting and adding windows partitions to lilo.
176
177 14 Jan 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
178 Added lilo code and cleaned up lilo code. also do_partitioning renamed to
179 partition. fixed misc exit_status => exitstatus typo.
180
181 11 Jan 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
182 Added basic code for resizing filesystems with pyparted. Fixed code for
183 resizing ntfs and ext2/3.
184
185 10 Jan 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
186 Fixed partition() in x86Template so that it scans through logicals and deletes
187 before deleting containing extended partition. Also clears partition table to
188 be safe before third pass.
189
190 08 Jan 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
191 Added mount_network_shares. not able to test it from this computer.
192 will test when i get back to school.
193 also added start_portmap to the client_controller as an always-do.
194 agaffney says this is needed for NFS mounts to work.
195
196 08 Jan 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
197 Partial rewrite of partitioning code in x86Template. No longer shells out to
198 parted to perform actions, now uses all pyparted calls. Code "works" in a
199 test, but still needs lots of TLC. Also modified tests/install.py to work
200 with x86Template and GLIClientConfiguration.
201
202 07 Jan 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
203 Initial move of partitioning code from ArchTemplate to x86Template.
204
205 07 Jan 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
206 Added grp_install and services to InstallProfile. forgot about the set_root_password
207
208 07 Jan 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
209 Fixed a few more edit_configs. fixed a chroot multicommand bug thanks to agaffney.
210 Test Install ran very well (skipping partitioning).
211
212 05 Jan 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
213 My mid-day update. rewrote mount_local_partitions for order of mounting. fixed prepare_chroot
214 rewrote configure_fstab and install_bootloader for new partition format. fixed a few _edit_configs.
215 some may still have eluded me.
216
217 05 Jan 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
218 Overhauled the entire ArchTemplate and did a lot of other misc fixes in order to test it.
219 Just finished mount_local_partitions in GLIArchitectureTemplate
220
221 05 Jan 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
222 Added get_num_sectors() to GLIStorageDevice.
223
224 04 Jan 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
225 GLIStorageDevice now tracks partition boundaries in sectors instead of cylinders.
226 Also now ignores <=100 sectors for free space. Removed remaining depends stuff
227 from GLIInstallProfile.
228
229 20 Dec 2004; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
230 GLIStorageDevice returns "unknown" instead of "" for get_type()
231
232 19 Dec 2004; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
233 Added get_extended_partition() to GLIStorageDevice. Rewrote get_logicals() to
234 actually work. Commented out resizability checking code for speed.
235
236 17 Dec 2004; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
237 Switched to using dumpe2fs to determine free space left in ext2/3 filesystem in
238 GLIStorageDevice at the suggestion of plors
239
240 10 Dec 2004; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
241 Added a function to GLIUtility to pull a value from a make.conf-style config
242 file. Minor type fix to GLIInstallProfile.py
243
244 09 Dec 2004; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
245 Added code in GLIArchitectureTemplate.py to write netmounts into fstab. Separated
246 network mounts from partition data structure in GLIInstallProfile
247
248 27 Nov 2004; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
249 Changed the way GLIStorageDevice.py determines the amount a ext2/3 filesystem
250 can be resized.
251
252 27 Oct 2004; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
253 Added some of the final functions to GLIInstallTemplate.
254 Yes this project is still active despite rare use of the Changelog!
255
256 11 Jun 2004; Nathaniel McCallum <npmccallum@gentoo.org>
257 Added the GLIPartitionTools.py file. This is a temporary insertion of
258 partitioning tools that will eventually go into their own package.
259
260 27 Mar 2004; Nathaniel McCallum <npmccallum@gentoo.org>
261 Added InstallProfileTODO.txt. Added GLIClientConfiguration.py (contains run-time
262 for the program). Added __init__(install_profile, client_configuration) to
263 GLI.InstallProfile. This sets install_profile and client_configuration once so as
264 to avoid constantly passing stuff every time we call a method.
265
266 26 Mar 2004; Nathaniel McCallum <npmccallum@gentoo.org>
267
268 Added another private method to GLI.InstallTemplate. _edit_config() modifies config
269 files without messing up all the other stuff in them. This will be used for making
270 changes to make.conf, rc.conf, /etc/conf.d/net, etc...
271
272 25 Mar 2004; Nathaniel McCallum <npmccallum@gentoo.org>
273
274 Added GLI.InstallTemplate framework. This is not yet functional. However, it does
275 have a few basic things. I added two private methods. One is _depends(). This
276 will be used for dependency checking (ie. unpacking a tarball requires that
277 partitioning has been done). The other is _exec_in_chroot(). This is the exact
278 same syntax as os.system(), however, instead of being run in the liveCD
279 environment, it runs in the chroot. This requires a bit of fork() magic, so I
280 isolated the code. Hope to work more this week to get this class formed...
281
282 14 Feb 2004; Eric Sammer <esammer@gentoo.org>
283
284 Added SAX parsing. Made GLI.InstallProfile a subclass of xml.sax.ContentHandler for
285 obvious reasons. Switched kernel_modules and users to be lists instead of tuples
286 to allow for easier modification (mutable, rather than immutable objects). Updated
287 existing pydoc and added more. Implemented body of GLI.InstallProfile.parse().
288 Cleaned file format of GLI.py a bit. Fixed all accessors to use self references.
289 Added initial unit test code.
290
291 9 Feb 2004; Eric Sammer <esammer@gentoo.org>
292
293 Added initial changelog. Setting up the basic structure of the CVS repository
294 for the project. Added the UML class diagram in docs. Added a skeletal GLI
295 python module. Added misc files such news, authors, etc.
