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 Patch from zahna for extra arguments to the kernel.
11
12 28 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
13 Added 'append_log=True' to all spawn() calls using logfile=. Append to log
14 when unpacking tarball.
15
16 28 Mar 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
17 rewrote filesystem_tools. looks like it works so ripping out all the old
18 filesystem_tools code.
19
20 26 Mar 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
21 Changed the print statements to logging in the partitioning BE code.
22 the logger may need to be imported to the x86archtemplate. unknown yet.
23 Added the finishing_cleanup function.
24 added a fix to the logger from BenUrban
25
26 25 Mar 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
27 changed InstallProfile to remove is_uri check on kernel, stage, and portage
28 URIs. The blank uri check has been commented out.
29 ripped out error checking of set_services. this is done by _add_to_runlevel.
30
31 25 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
32 set_stage_tarball_uri() doesn't raise an exception on a blank string.
33
34 24 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
35 GRP-ish quickpkg code pulls PKGDIR and PORTAGE_TMPDIR from make.conf info in
36 the install profile if available. Commented out spawn() debugging prints
37
38 23 Mar 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
39 small changes to setup_network_post. moved adding to runlevel of net.x to
40 after the device gets symlinked. added domainname runlevel command.
41
42 23 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
43 minor fix (hopefully) to livecd-kernel code. Removed call to mkvardb in
44 livecd-kernel code as it's now done by catalyst. Switch _emerge() call to
45 spawn() call in livecd-kernel code to pass environment variables.
46 livecd-kernel code pulls PKGDIR and PORTAGE_TMPDIR from make.conf info in
47 the install profile if available.
48
49 23 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
50 Added code to build_kernel() and emerge_kernel_sources() in ArchTemplate
51 to handle installing the livecd kernel into the new system.
52
53 22 Mar 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
54 should emerge hotplug and coldplug before adding them to runlevel.
55
56 21 Mar 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
57 took chroot out of grub_install command.
58
59 21 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
60 Changed chroot wrapper code in spawn() to write the wrapper the python way
61 instead of the bash way to avoid quote conflicts. Added
62 'logfile=self._compile_logfile' to a number of spawn() calls. Added new
63 hash_password() function to GLIUtility. Remove command to 'rm /tmp/spawn.sh'
64 as it breaks the piping.
65
66 20 Mar 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
67 Added the amd64ArchitectureTemplate, mostly a copy of x86 without lilo.
68
69 20 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
70 Added _get_packages_to_emerge() to GLIArchitectureTemplate and calls in
71 stage1() and stage2(). Added 'origminor' parameter to GLIStorageDevice and
72 GLIInstallProfile.
73
74 19 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
75 Fixed a couple bugs in add_netmount() in GLIInstallProfile. spawn() outputs
76 to the actual tty8 with display_on_tty8 flag. Compile output logfile moved
77 into /mnt/gentoo in prepare_chroot()
78
79 18 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
80 Add sigunmask.c contributed by d_m (on freenode) to counteract python's
81 retarted behavior regarding threads and signals. Add code to convert MB/%/*
82 to start/end sectors
83
84 17 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
85 Add 2>&1 to cmd in spawn()
86
87 16 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
88 Modified GLIUtility.exitsuccess() to work with return value from
89 commands.getstatusoutput instead of os.waitpid(). spawn() automatically
90 creates wrapper script for commands run inside chroot so multiple commands
91 and redirection can be used. Change exitsuccess() back. Added 'chmod a+x'
92 for the generated script from spawn()
93
94 16 Mar 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
95 Removed default values for stage tarball URI and portage tree URI from
96 InstallProfile. These should be set by the FEs. also added services step to
97 ArchTemplate and coldplug/hotplug runlevels to the genkernel step.
98 Possibly fixed CC DHCP bug with -n. (thx agaffney)
99
100 14 Mar 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
101 Small fix for setting the default gateway. Also added feature to dialogfe.
102
103 7 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
104 Switched spawn() over to commands.getstatusoutput() instead of fork/waitpid
105
106 1 Mar 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
107 Fixed a bunch of true -> True typos. lots of em
108 only write new resolv.conf if there are dns servers listed.
109
110 1 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
111 Commented out 'display_on_tty8=True' in start_portmap()
112
113 18 Feb 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
114 added progress bar to dialogfe and fix logger bug in ArchTemplate.
115
116 18 Feb 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
117 Created GLISayWhat module. Renamed GLISayWhat to GLILocalization. Moved
118 lang parameter to __init__()
119
120 10 Feb 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
121 updates to TODO list.
122
123 6 Feb 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
124 Initial code for quickpkg GRP support. Fix loop to grab packages from
125 'emerge -p blah'
126
127 6 Feb 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
128 check for dhcp in the network stuff and emerge it if it is.
129 added quickpkg to TODO list
130
131 5 Feb 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
132 Changed the raising of 'warning' exceptions to a simple log of the error
133 so that the installer can continue.
134
135 3 Feb 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
136 Some big changes. First, changed most output to display_on_tty8.
137 Second, added log lines to all templates. Some smaller fixes such as typos.
138 Also did some cleanups of old commented lines.
139
140 1 Feb 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
141 Changed tty8 output to a fifo. Minor GLIStorageDevice fix thanks to BenUrban.
142 Undo change with fix. Escaping fix in GLIStorageDevice.py
143
144 31 Jan 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
145 more updates to TODO list. hopefully we'll soon start removing items instead
146 of adding them.
147
148 29 Jan 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
149 Changed the way GLIStorageDevice.get_max_sectors_for_resize() works
150
151 27 Jan 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
152 updated TODO list. (again)
153
154 25 Jan 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>

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