6
7 28 Mar 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
8 rewrote filesystem_tools. looks like it works so ripping out all the old
9 filesystem_tools code.
10
11 26 Mar 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
12 Changed the print statements to logging in the partitioning BE code.
13 the logger may need to be imported to the x86archtemplate. unknown yet.
14 Added the finishing_cleanup function.
15 added a fix to the logger from BenUrban
16
17 25 Mar 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
18 changed InstallProfile to remove is_uri check on kernel, stage, and portage
19 URIs. The blank uri check has been commented out.
20 ripped out error checking of set_services. this is done by _add_to_runlevel.
21
22 25 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
23 set_stage_tarball_uri() doesn't raise an exception on a blank string.
24
25 24 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
26 GRP-ish quickpkg code pulls PKGDIR and PORTAGE_TMPDIR from make.conf info in
27 the install profile if available. Commented out spawn() debugging prints
28
29 23 Mar 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
30 small changes to setup_network_post. moved adding to runlevel of net.x to
31 after the device gets symlinked. added domainname runlevel command.
32
33 23 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
34 minor fix (hopefully) to livecd-kernel code. Removed call to mkvardb in
35 livecd-kernel code as it's now done by catalyst. Switch _emerge() call to
36 spawn() call in livecd-kernel code to pass environment variables.
37 livecd-kernel code pulls PKGDIR and PORTAGE_TMPDIR from make.conf info in
38 the install profile if available.
39
40 23 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
41 Added code to build_kernel() and emerge_kernel_sources() in ArchTemplate
42 to handle installing the livecd kernel into the new system.
43
44 22 Mar 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
45 should emerge hotplug and coldplug before adding them to runlevel.
46
47 21 Mar 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
48 took chroot out of grub_install command.
49
50 21 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
51 Changed chroot wrapper code in spawn() to write the wrapper the python way
52 instead of the bash way to avoid quote conflicts. Added
53 'logfile=self._compile_logfile' to a number of spawn() calls. Added new
54 hash_password() function to GLIUtility. Remove command to 'rm /tmp/spawn.sh'
55 as it breaks the piping.
56
57 20 Mar 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
58 Added the amd64ArchitectureTemplate, mostly a copy of x86 without lilo.
59
60 20 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
61 Added _get_packages_to_emerge() to GLIArchitectureTemplate and calls in
62 stage1() and stage2(). Added 'origminor' parameter to GLIStorageDevice and
63 GLIInstallProfile.
64
65 19 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
66 Fixed a couple bugs in add_netmount() in GLIInstallProfile. spawn() outputs
67 to the actual tty8 with display_on_tty8 flag. Compile output logfile moved
68 into /mnt/gentoo in prepare_chroot()
69
70 18 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
71 Add sigunmask.c contributed by d_m (on freenode) to counteract python's
72 retarted behavior regarding threads and signals. Add code to convert MB/%/*
73 to start/end sectors
74
75 17 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
76 Add 2>&1 to cmd in spawn()
77
78 16 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
79 Modified GLIUtility.exitsuccess() to work with return value from
80 commands.getstatusoutput instead of os.waitpid(). spawn() automatically
81 creates wrapper script for commands run inside chroot so multiple commands
82 and redirection can be used. Change exitsuccess() back. Added 'chmod a+x'
83 for the generated script from spawn()
84
85 16 Mar 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
86 Removed default values for stage tarball URI and portage tree URI from
87 InstallProfile. These should be set by the FEs. also added services step to
88 ArchTemplate and coldplug/hotplug runlevels to the genkernel step.
89 Possibly fixed CC DHCP bug with -n. (thx agaffney)
90
91 14 Mar 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
92 Small fix for setting the default gateway. Also added feature to dialogfe.
93
94 7 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
95 Switched spawn() over to commands.getstatusoutput() instead of fork/waitpid
96
97 1 Mar 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
98 Fixed a bunch of true -> True typos. lots of em
99 only write new resolv.conf if there are dns servers listed.
100
101 1 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
102 Commented out 'display_on_tty8=True' in start_portmap()
103
104 18 Feb 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
105 added progress bar to dialogfe and fix logger bug in ArchTemplate.

117
118 6 Feb 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
119 check for dhcp in the network stuff and emerge it if it is.
120 added quickpkg to TODO list
121
122 5 Feb 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
123 Changed the raising of 'warning' exceptions to a simple log of the error
124 so that the installer can continue.
125
126 3 Feb 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
127 Some big changes. First, changed most output to display_on_tty8.
128 Second, added log lines to all templates. Some smaller fixes such as typos.
129 Also did some cleanups of old commented lines.
130
131 1 Feb 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
132 Changed tty8 output to a fifo. Minor GLIStorageDevice fix thanks to BenUrban.
133 Undo change with fix. Escaping fix in GLIStorageDevice.py
134
135 31 Jan 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
136 more updates to TODO list. hopefully we'll soon start removing items instead
137 of adding them.
138
139 29 Jan 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
140 Changed the way GLIStorageDevice.get_max_sectors_for_resize() works
141
142 27 Jan 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
143 updated TODO list. (again)
144

150 22 Jan 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
151 changed default value of CC._enable_ssh to True because this is smart.
152 added code to allow custom kernel .config. may be unstable and break. sorry.
153
154 21 Jan 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
155 partition() now waits until after it checks for partition flags before delete
156 the partitions :P
157
158 19 Jan 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
159 Updated TODO. swapon failure it temporarily not an error. swapon is an error
160 again. is_uri() check only performed on portage_tree_snapshot_uri if it isn't
161 blank.
162
163 19 Jan 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
164 Various fixes related to the add_users function. Still not yet finished.
165 Added things to the TODO list. Lets start using that!
166
167 18 Jan 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
168 Added code to x86Template to format newly created partitions. Also added
169 some error checking code. GLIStorageDevice passes 'minor' with data to
170 InstallProfile. Added partition() call back in ArchTemplate. Fixed NFS
171 mounting code.
172
173 18 Jan 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
174 Took out unnecessary setting of random livecd root password. the cd already
175 sets it randomly.
176
177 15 Jan 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
178 Took out an unneeded step from CC's run()
179
180 15 Jan 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
181 Attempt at detecting and adding windows partitions to lilo.
182
183 14 Jan 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
184 Added lilo code and cleaned up lilo code. also do_partitioning renamed to
185 partition. fixed misc exit_status => exitstatus typo.
186
187 11 Jan 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
188 Added basic code for resizing filesystems with pyparted. Fixed code for
189 resizing ntfs and ext2/3.
190
191 10 Jan 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
192 Fixed partition() in x86Template so that it scans through logicals and deletes
193 before deleting containing extended partition. Also clears partition table to
194 be safe before third pass.
195
196 08 Jan 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
197 Added mount_network_shares. not able to test it from this computer.
198 will test when i get back to school.
199 also added start_portmap to the client_controller as an always-do.
200 agaffney says this is needed for NFS mounts to work.
201
202 08 Jan 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
203 Partial rewrite of partitioning code in x86Template. No longer shells out to
204 parted to perform actions, now uses all pyparted calls. Code "works" in a
205 test, but still needs lots of TLC. Also modified tests/install.py to work
206 with x86Template and GLIClientConfiguration.
207
208 07 Jan 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
209 Initial move of partitioning code from ArchTemplate to x86Template.
210
211 07 Jan 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
212 Added grp_install and services to InstallProfile. forgot about the set_root_password
213
214 07 Jan 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
215 Fixed a few more edit_configs. fixed a chroot multicommand bug thanks to agaffney.
216 Test Install ran very well (skipping partitioning).
217
218 05 Jan 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
219 My mid-day update. rewrote mount_local_partitions for order of mounting. fixed prepare_chroot
220 rewrote configure_fstab and install_bootloader for new partition format. fixed a few _edit_configs.
221 some may still have eluded me.
222
223 05 Jan 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
224 Overhauled the entire ArchTemplate and did a lot of other misc fixes in order to test it.
225 Just finished mount_local_partitions in GLIArchitectureTemplate
226
227 05 Jan 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
228 Added get_num_sectors() to GLIStorageDevice.
229
230 04 Jan 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
231 GLIStorageDevice now tracks partition boundaries in sectors instead of cylinders.
232 Also now ignores <=100 sectors for free space. Removed remaining depends stuff
233 from GLIInstallProfile.
234
235 20 Dec 2004; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
236 GLIStorageDevice returns "unknown" instead of "" for get_type()
237
238 19 Dec 2004; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
239 Added get_extended_partition() to GLIStorageDevice. Rewrote get_logicals() to
240 actually work. Commented out resizability checking code for speed.
241
242 17 Dec 2004; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
243 Switched to using dumpe2fs to determine free space left in ext2/3 filesystem in
244 GLIStorageDevice at the suggestion of plors
245
246 10 Dec 2004; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
247 Added a function to GLIUtility to pull a value from a make.conf-style config
248 file. Minor type fix to GLIInstallProfile.py
249
250 09 Dec 2004; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
251 Added code in GLIArchitectureTemplate.py to write netmounts into fstab. Separated
252 network mounts from partition data structure in GLIInstallProfile
253
254 27 Nov 2004; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
255 Changed the way GLIStorageDevice.py determines the amount a ext2/3 filesystem
256 can be resized.
257
258 27 Oct 2004; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
259 Added some of the final functions to GLIInstallTemplate.
260 Yes this project is still active despite rare use of the Changelog!
261
262 11 Jun 2004; Nathaniel McCallum <npmccallum@gentoo.org>
263 Added the GLIPartitionTools.py file. This is a temporary insertion of
264 partitioning tools that will eventually go into their own package.
265
266 27 Mar 2004; Nathaniel McCallum <npmccallum@gentoo.org>
267 Added InstallProfileTODO.txt. Added GLIClientConfiguration.py (contains run-time
268 for the program). Added __init__(install_profile, client_configuration) to
269 GLI.InstallProfile. This sets install_profile and client_configuration once so as
270 to avoid constantly passing stuff every time we call a method.
271
272 26 Mar 2004; Nathaniel McCallum <npmccallum@gentoo.org>
273
274 Added another private method to GLI.InstallTemplate. _edit_config() modifies config
275 files without messing up all the other stuff in them. This will be used for making
276 changes to make.conf, rc.conf, /etc/conf.d/net, etc...
277
278 25 Mar 2004; Nathaniel McCallum <npmccallum@gentoo.org>
279
280 Added GLI.InstallTemplate framework. This is not yet functional. However, it does
281 have a few basic things. I added two private methods. One is _depends(). This
282 will be used for dependency checking (ie. unpacking a tarball requires that
283 partitioning has been done). The other is _exec_in_chroot(). This is the exact
284 same syntax as os.system(), however, instead of being run in the liveCD
285 environment, it runs in the chroot. This requires a bit of fork() magic, so I
286 isolated the code. Hope to work more this week to get this class formed...
287
288 14 Feb 2004; Eric Sammer <esammer@gentoo.org>
289
290 Added SAX parsing. Made GLI.InstallProfile a subclass of xml.sax.ContentHandler for
291 obvious reasons. Switched kernel_modules and users to be lists instead of tuples
292 to allow for easier modification (mutable, rather than immutable objects). Updated
293 existing pydoc and added more. Implemented body of GLI.InstallProfile.parse().
294 Cleaned file format of GLI.py a bit. Fixed all accessors to use self references.
295 Added initial unit test code.
296
297 9 Feb 2004; Eric Sammer <esammer@gentoo.org>
298
299 Added initial changelog. Setting up the basic structure of the CVS repository
300 for the project. Added the UML class diagram in docs. Added a skeletal GLI
301 python module. Added misc files such news, authors, etc.
