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

127
128 6 Feb 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
129 check for dhcp in the network stuff and emerge it if it is.

131
132 5 Feb 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
133 Changed the raising of 'warning' exceptions to a simple log of the error
134 so that the installer can continue.
135
136 3 Feb 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
137 Some big changes. First, changed most output to display_on_tty8.
138 Second, added log lines to all templates. Some smaller fixes such as typos.
139 Also did some cleanups of old commented lines.
140
141 1 Feb 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
142 Changed tty8 output to a fifo. Minor GLIStorageDevice fix thanks to BenUrban.
143 Undo change with fix. Escaping fix in GLIStorageDevice.py
144
145 31 Jan 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
146 more updates to TODO list. hopefully we'll soon start removing items instead
147 of adding them.
148
149 29 Jan 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
150 Changed the way GLIStorageDevice.get_max_sectors_for_resize() works
151
152 27 Jan 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
153 updated TODO list. (again)
154

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