5 *GLI-0.01 (9 Feb 2004)
6
7 29 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
8 Remove /tmp/compile_output.log and /var/log/install.log when install is
9 complete. Added code to (hopefully) keep 2nd thread running after install.
10
11 28 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
12 Added 'append_log=True' to all spawn() calls using logfile=. Append to log
13 when unpacking tarball.
14
15 28 Mar 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
16 rewrote filesystem_tools. looks like it works so ripping out all the old
17 filesystem_tools code.
18
19 26 Mar 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
20 Changed the print statements to logging in the partitioning BE code.
21 the logger may need to be imported to the x86archtemplate. unknown yet.
22 Added the finishing_cleanup function.
23 added a fix to the logger from BenUrban
24
25 25 Mar 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
26 changed InstallProfile to remove is_uri check on kernel, stage, and portage
27 URIs. The blank uri check has been commented out.
28 ripped out error checking of set_services. this is done by _add_to_runlevel.
29
30 25 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
31 set_stage_tarball_uri() doesn't raise an exception on a blank string.
32
33 24 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
34 GRP-ish quickpkg code pulls PKGDIR and PORTAGE_TMPDIR from make.conf info in
35 the install profile if available. Commented out spawn() debugging prints
36
37 23 Mar 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
38 small changes to setup_network_post. moved adding to runlevel of net.x to
39 after the device gets symlinked. added domainname runlevel command.
40
41 23 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
42 minor fix (hopefully) to livecd-kernel code. Removed call to mkvardb in
43 livecd-kernel code as it's now done by catalyst. Switch _emerge() call to
44 spawn() call in livecd-kernel code to pass environment variables.
45 livecd-kernel code pulls PKGDIR and PORTAGE_TMPDIR from make.conf info in
46 the install profile if available.
47
48 23 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
49 Added code to build_kernel() and emerge_kernel_sources() in ArchTemplate
50 to handle installing the livecd kernel into the new system.
51
52 22 Mar 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
53 should emerge hotplug and coldplug before adding them to runlevel.
54
55 21 Mar 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
56 took chroot out of grub_install command.
57
58 21 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
59 Changed chroot wrapper code in spawn() to write the wrapper the python way
60 instead of the bash way to avoid quote conflicts. Added
61 'logfile=self._compile_logfile' to a number of spawn() calls. Added new
62 hash_password() function to GLIUtility. Remove command to 'rm /tmp/spawn.sh'
63 as it breaks the piping.
64
65 20 Mar 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
66 Added the amd64ArchitectureTemplate, mostly a copy of x86 without lilo.
67
68 20 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
69 Added _get_packages_to_emerge() to GLIArchitectureTemplate and calls in
70 stage1() and stage2(). Added 'origminor' parameter to GLIStorageDevice and
71 GLIInstallProfile.
72
73 19 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
74 Fixed a couple bugs in add_netmount() in GLIInstallProfile. spawn() outputs
75 to the actual tty8 with display_on_tty8 flag. Compile output logfile moved
76 into /mnt/gentoo in prepare_chroot()
77
78 18 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
79 Add sigunmask.c contributed by d_m (on freenode) to counteract python's
80 retarted behavior regarding threads and signals. Add code to convert MB/%/*
81 to start/end sectors
82
83 17 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
84 Add 2>&1 to cmd in spawn()
85
86 16 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
87 Modified GLIUtility.exitsuccess() to work with return value from
88 commands.getstatusoutput instead of os.waitpid(). spawn() automatically
89 creates wrapper script for commands run inside chroot so multiple commands
90 and redirection can be used. Change exitsuccess() back. Added 'chmod a+x'
91 for the generated script from spawn()
92
93 16 Mar 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
94 Removed default values for stage tarball URI and portage tree URI from
95 InstallProfile. These should be set by the FEs. also added services step to
96 ArchTemplate and coldplug/hotplug runlevels to the genkernel step.
97 Possibly fixed CC DHCP bug with -n. (thx agaffney)
98
99 14 Mar 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
100 Small fix for setting the default gateway. Also added feature to dialogfe.
101
102 7 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
103 Switched spawn() over to commands.getstatusoutput() instead of fork/waitpid
104
105 1 Mar 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
106 Fixed a bunch of true -> True typos. lots of em
107 only write new resolv.conf if there are dns servers listed.
108
109 1 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
110 Commented out 'display_on_tty8=True' in start_portmap()
111
112 18 Feb 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
113 added progress bar to dialogfe and fix logger bug in ArchTemplate.
114
115 18 Feb 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
116 Created GLISayWhat module. Renamed GLISayWhat to GLILocalization. Moved
117 lang parameter to __init__()
118
119 10 Feb 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
120 updates to TODO list.
121
122 6 Feb 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>

124 'emerge -p blah'
125
126 6 Feb 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
127 check for dhcp in the network stuff and emerge it if it is.
128 added quickpkg to TODO list
129
130 5 Feb 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
131 Changed the raising of 'warning' exceptions to a simple log of the error
132 so that the installer can continue.
133
134 3 Feb 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
135 Some big changes. First, changed most output to display_on_tty8.
136 Second, added log lines to all templates. Some smaller fixes such as typos.
137 Also did some cleanups of old commented lines.
138
139 1 Feb 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
140 Changed tty8 output to a fifo. Minor GLIStorageDevice fix thanks to BenUrban.
141 Undo change with fix. Escaping fix in GLIStorageDevice.py
142
143 31 Jan 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
144 more updates to TODO list. hopefully we'll soon start removing items instead
145 of adding them.
146
147 29 Jan 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
148 Changed the way GLIStorageDevice.get_max_sectors_for_resize() works
149
150 27 Jan 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
151 updated TODO list. (again)
152

158 22 Jan 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
159 changed default value of CC._enable_ssh to True because this is smart.
160 added code to allow custom kernel .config. may be unstable and break. sorry.
161
162 21 Jan 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
163 partition() now waits until after it checks for partition flags before delete
164 the partitions :P
165
166 19 Jan 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
167 Updated TODO. swapon failure it temporarily not an error. swapon is an error
168 again. is_uri() check only performed on portage_tree_snapshot_uri if it isn't
169 blank.
170
171 19 Jan 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
172 Various fixes related to the add_users function. Still not yet finished.
173 Added things to the TODO list. Lets start using that!
174
175 18 Jan 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
176 Added code to x86Template to format newly created partitions. Also added
177 some error checking code. GLIStorageDevice passes 'minor' with data to
178 InstallProfile. Added partition() call back in ArchTemplate. Fixed NFS
179 mounting code.
180
181 18 Jan 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
182 Took out unnecessary setting of random livecd root password. the cd already
183 sets it randomly.
184
185 15 Jan 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
186 Took out an unneeded step from CC's run()
187
188 15 Jan 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
189 Attempt at detecting and adding windows partitions to lilo.
190
191 14 Jan 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
192 Added lilo code and cleaned up lilo code. also do_partitioning renamed to
193 partition. fixed misc exit_status => exitstatus typo.
194
195 11 Jan 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
196 Added basic code for resizing filesystems with pyparted. Fixed code for
197 resizing ntfs and ext2/3.
198
199 10 Jan 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
200 Fixed partition() in x86Template so that it scans through logicals and deletes
201 before deleting containing extended partition. Also clears partition table to
202 be safe before third pass.
203
204 08 Jan 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
205 Added mount_network_shares. not able to test it from this computer.
206 will test when i get back to school.
207 also added start_portmap to the client_controller as an always-do.
208 agaffney says this is needed for NFS mounts to work.
209
210 08 Jan 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
211 Partial rewrite of partitioning code in x86Template. No longer shells out to
212 parted to perform actions, now uses all pyparted calls. Code "works" in a
213 test, but still needs lots of TLC. Also modified tests/install.py to work
214 with x86Template and GLIClientConfiguration.
215
216 07 Jan 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
217 Initial move of partitioning code from ArchTemplate to x86Template.
218
219 07 Jan 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
220 Added grp_install and services to InstallProfile. forgot about the set_root_password
221
222 07 Jan 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
223 Fixed a few more edit_configs. fixed a chroot multicommand bug thanks to agaffney.
224 Test Install ran very well (skipping partitioning).
225
226 05 Jan 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
227 My mid-day update. rewrote mount_local_partitions for order of mounting. fixed prepare_chroot
228 rewrote configure_fstab and install_bootloader for new partition format. fixed a few _edit_configs.
229 some may still have eluded me.
230
231 05 Jan 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
232 Overhauled the entire ArchTemplate and did a lot of other misc fixes in order to test it.
233 Just finished mount_local_partitions in GLIArchitectureTemplate
234
235 05 Jan 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
236 Added get_num_sectors() to GLIStorageDevice.
237
238 04 Jan 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
239 GLIStorageDevice now tracks partition boundaries in sectors instead of cylinders.
240 Also now ignores <=100 sectors for free space. Removed remaining depends stuff
241 from GLIInstallProfile.
242
243 20 Dec 2004; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
244 GLIStorageDevice returns "unknown" instead of "" for get_type()
245
246 19 Dec 2004; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
247 Added get_extended_partition() to GLIStorageDevice. Rewrote get_logicals() to
248 actually work. Commented out resizability checking code for speed.
249
250 17 Dec 2004; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
251 Switched to using dumpe2fs to determine free space left in ext2/3 filesystem in
252 GLIStorageDevice at the suggestion of plors
253
254 10 Dec 2004; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
255 Added a function to GLIUtility to pull a value from a make.conf-style config
256 file. Minor type fix to GLIInstallProfile.py
257
258 09 Dec 2004; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
259 Added code in GLIArchitectureTemplate.py to write netmounts into fstab. Separated
260 network mounts from partition data structure in GLIInstallProfile
261
262 27 Nov 2004; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
263 Changed the way GLIStorageDevice.py determines the amount a ext2/3 filesystem
264 can be resized.
265
266 27 Oct 2004; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
267 Added some of the final functions to GLIInstallTemplate.
268 Yes this project is still active despite rare use of the Changelog!
269
270 11 Jun 2004; Nathaniel McCallum <npmccallum@gentoo.org>
271 Added the GLIPartitionTools.py file. This is a temporary insertion of
272 partitioning tools that will eventually go into their own package.
273
274 27 Mar 2004; Nathaniel McCallum <npmccallum@gentoo.org>
275 Added InstallProfileTODO.txt. Added GLIClientConfiguration.py (contains run-time
276 for the program). Added __init__(install_profile, client_configuration) to
277 GLI.InstallProfile. This sets install_profile and client_configuration once so as
278 to avoid constantly passing stuff every time we call a method.
279
280 26 Mar 2004; Nathaniel McCallum <npmccallum@gentoo.org>
281
282 Added another private method to GLI.InstallTemplate. _edit_config() modifies config
283 files without messing up all the other stuff in them. This will be used for making
284 changes to make.conf, rc.conf, /etc/conf.d/net, etc...
285
286 25 Mar 2004; Nathaniel McCallum <npmccallum@gentoo.org>
287
288 Added GLI.InstallTemplate framework. This is not yet functional. However, it does
289 have a few basic things. I added two private methods. One is _depends(). This
290 will be used for dependency checking (ie. unpacking a tarball requires that
291 partitioning has been done). The other is _exec_in_chroot(). This is the exact
292 same syntax as os.system(), however, instead of being run in the liveCD
293 environment, it runs in the chroot. This requires a bit of fork() magic, so I
294 isolated the code. Hope to work more this week to get this class formed...
295
296 14 Feb 2004; Eric Sammer <esammer@gentoo.org>
297
298 Added SAX parsing. Made GLI.InstallProfile a subclass of xml.sax.ContentHandler for
299 obvious reasons. Switched kernel_modules and users to be lists instead of tuples
300 to allow for easier modification (mutable, rather than immutable objects). Updated
301 existing pydoc and added more. Implemented body of GLI.InstallProfile.parse().
302 Cleaned file format of GLI.py a bit. Fixed all accessors to use self references.
303 Added initial unit test code.
304
305 9 Feb 2004; Eric Sammer <esammer@gentoo.org>
306
307 Added initial changelog. Setting up the basic structure of the CVS repository
308 for the project. Added the UML class diagram in docs. Added a skeletal GLI
309 python module. Added misc files such news, authors, etc.
