6
7 28 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
8 Added 'append_log=True' to all spawn() calls using logfile=
9
10 28 Mar 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
11 rewrote filesystem_tools. looks like it works so ripping out all the old
12 filesystem_tools code.
13
14 26 Mar 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
15 Changed the print statements to logging in the partitioning BE code.
16 the logger may need to be imported to the x86archtemplate. unknown yet.
17 Added the finishing_cleanup function.
18 added a fix to the logger from BenUrban
19
20 25 Mar 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
21 changed InstallProfile to remove is_uri check on kernel, stage, and portage
22 URIs. The blank uri check has been commented out.
23 ripped out error checking of set_services. this is done by _add_to_runlevel.
24
25 25 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
26 set_stage_tarball_uri() doesn't raise an exception on a blank string.
27
28 24 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
29 GRP-ish quickpkg code pulls PKGDIR and PORTAGE_TMPDIR from make.conf info in
30 the install profile if available. Commented out spawn() debugging prints
31
32 23 Mar 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
33 small changes to setup_network_post. moved adding to runlevel of net.x to
34 after the device gets symlinked. added domainname runlevel command.
35
36 23 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
37 minor fix (hopefully) to livecd-kernel code. Removed call to mkvardb in
38 livecd-kernel code as it's now done by catalyst. Switch _emerge() call to
39 spawn() call in livecd-kernel code to pass environment variables.
40 livecd-kernel code pulls PKGDIR and PORTAGE_TMPDIR from make.conf info in
41 the install profile if available.
42
43 23 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
44 Added code to build_kernel() and emerge_kernel_sources() in ArchTemplate
45 to handle installing the livecd kernel into the new system.
46
47 22 Mar 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
48 should emerge hotplug and coldplug before adding them to runlevel.
49
50 21 Mar 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
51 took chroot out of grub_install command.
52
53 21 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
54 Changed chroot wrapper code in spawn() to write the wrapper the python way
55 instead of the bash way to avoid quote conflicts. Added
56 'logfile=self._compile_logfile' to a number of spawn() calls. Added new
57 hash_password() function to GLIUtility. Remove command to 'rm /tmp/spawn.sh'
58 as it breaks the piping.
59
60 20 Mar 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
61 Added the amd64ArchitectureTemplate, mostly a copy of x86 without lilo.
62
63 20 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
64 Added _get_packages_to_emerge() to GLIArchitectureTemplate and calls in
65 stage1() and stage2(). Added 'origminor' parameter to GLIStorageDevice and
66 GLIInstallProfile.
67
68 19 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
69 Fixed a couple bugs in add_netmount() in GLIInstallProfile. spawn() outputs
70 to the actual tty8 with display_on_tty8 flag. Compile output logfile moved
71 into /mnt/gentoo in prepare_chroot()
72
73 18 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
74 Add sigunmask.c contributed by d_m (on freenode) to counteract python's
75 retarted behavior regarding threads and signals. Add code to convert MB/%/*
76 to start/end sectors
77
78 17 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
79 Add 2>&1 to cmd in spawn()
80
81 16 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
82 Modified GLIUtility.exitsuccess() to work with return value from
83 commands.getstatusoutput instead of os.waitpid(). spawn() automatically
84 creates wrapper script for commands run inside chroot so multiple commands
85 and redirection can be used. Change exitsuccess() back. Added 'chmod a+x'
86 for the generated script from spawn()
87
88 16 Mar 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
89 Removed default values for stage tarball URI and portage tree URI from
90 InstallProfile. These should be set by the FEs. also added services step to
91 ArchTemplate and coldplug/hotplug runlevels to the genkernel step.
92 Possibly fixed CC DHCP bug with -n. (thx agaffney)
93
94 14 Mar 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
95 Small fix for setting the default gateway. Also added feature to dialogfe.
96
97 7 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
98 Switched spawn() over to commands.getstatusoutput() instead of fork/waitpid
99
100 1 Mar 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
101 Fixed a bunch of true -> True typos. lots of em
102 only write new resolv.conf if there are dns servers listed.
103
104 1 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
105 Commented out 'display_on_tty8=True' in start_portmap()
106
107 18 Feb 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>

120
121 6 Feb 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
122 check for dhcp in the network stuff and emerge it if it is.
123 added quickpkg to TODO list
124
125 5 Feb 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
126 Changed the raising of 'warning' exceptions to a simple log of the error
127 so that the installer can continue.
128
129 3 Feb 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
130 Some big changes. First, changed most output to display_on_tty8.
131 Second, added log lines to all templates. Some smaller fixes such as typos.
132 Also did some cleanups of old commented lines.
133
134 1 Feb 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
135 Changed tty8 output to a fifo. Minor GLIStorageDevice fix thanks to BenUrban.
136 Undo change with fix. Escaping fix in GLIStorageDevice.py
137
138 31 Jan 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
139 more updates to TODO list. hopefully we'll soon start removing items instead
140 of adding them.
141
142 29 Jan 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
143 Changed the way GLIStorageDevice.get_max_sectors_for_resize() works
144
145 27 Jan 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
146 updated TODO list. (again)
147

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