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. Remove most of content in amd64ArchTemplate and
12 make it inherit from x86Archtemplate.
13
14 28 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
15 Added 'append_log=True' to all spawn() calls using logfile=. Append to log
16 when unpacking tarball.
17
18 28 Mar 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
19 rewrote filesystem_tools. looks like it works so ripping out all the old
20 filesystem_tools code.
21
22 26 Mar 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
23 Changed the print statements to logging in the partitioning BE code.
24 the logger may need to be imported to the x86archtemplate. unknown yet.
25 Added the finishing_cleanup function.
26 added a fix to the logger from BenUrban
27
28 25 Mar 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
29 changed InstallProfile to remove is_uri check on kernel, stage, and portage
30 URIs. The blank uri check has been commented out.
31 ripped out error checking of set_services. this is done by _add_to_runlevel.
32
33 25 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
34 set_stage_tarball_uri() doesn't raise an exception on a blank string.
35
36 24 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
37 GRP-ish quickpkg code pulls PKGDIR and PORTAGE_TMPDIR from make.conf info in
38 the install profile if available. Commented out spawn() debugging prints
39
40 23 Mar 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
41 small changes to setup_network_post. moved adding to runlevel of net.x to
42 after the device gets symlinked. added domainname runlevel command.
43
44 23 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
45 minor fix (hopefully) to livecd-kernel code. Removed call to mkvardb in
46 livecd-kernel code as it's now done by catalyst. Switch _emerge() call to
47 spawn() call in livecd-kernel code to pass environment variables.
48 livecd-kernel code pulls PKGDIR and PORTAGE_TMPDIR from make.conf info in
49 the install profile if available.
50
51 23 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
52 Added code to build_kernel() and emerge_kernel_sources() in ArchTemplate
53 to handle installing the livecd kernel into the new system.
54
55 22 Mar 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
56 should emerge hotplug and coldplug before adding them to runlevel.
57
58 21 Mar 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
59 took chroot out of grub_install command.
60
61 21 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
62 Changed chroot wrapper code in spawn() to write the wrapper the python way
63 instead of the bash way to avoid quote conflicts. Added
64 'logfile=self._compile_logfile' to a number of spawn() calls. Added new
65 hash_password() function to GLIUtility. Remove command to 'rm /tmp/spawn.sh'
66 as it breaks the piping.
67
68 20 Mar 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
69 Added the amd64ArchitectureTemplate, mostly a copy of x86 without lilo.
70
71 20 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
72 Added _get_packages_to_emerge() to GLIArchitectureTemplate and calls in
73 stage1() and stage2(). Added 'origminor' parameter to GLIStorageDevice and
74 GLIInstallProfile.
75
76 19 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
77 Fixed a couple bugs in add_netmount() in GLIInstallProfile. spawn() outputs
78 to the actual tty8 with display_on_tty8 flag. Compile output logfile moved
79 into /mnt/gentoo in prepare_chroot()
80
81 18 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
82 Add sigunmask.c contributed by d_m (on freenode) to counteract python's
83 retarted behavior regarding threads and signals. Add code to convert MB/%/*
84 to start/end sectors
85
86 17 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
87 Add 2>&1 to cmd in spawn()
88
89 16 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
90 Modified GLIUtility.exitsuccess() to work with return value from
91 commands.getstatusoutput instead of os.waitpid(). spawn() automatically
92 creates wrapper script for commands run inside chroot so multiple commands
93 and redirection can be used. Change exitsuccess() back. Added 'chmod a+x'
94 for the generated script from spawn()
95
96 16 Mar 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
97 Removed default values for stage tarball URI and portage tree URI from
98 InstallProfile. These should be set by the FEs. also added services step to
99 ArchTemplate and coldplug/hotplug runlevels to the genkernel step.
100 Possibly fixed CC DHCP bug with -n. (thx agaffney)
101
102 14 Mar 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
103 Small fix for setting the default gateway. Also added feature to dialogfe.
104
105 7 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
106 Switched spawn() over to commands.getstatusoutput() instead of fork/waitpid
107
108 1 Mar 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
109 Fixed a bunch of true -> True typos. lots of em
110 only write new resolv.conf if there are dns servers listed.
111
112 1 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
113 Commented out 'display_on_tty8=True' in start_portmap()
114
115 18 Feb 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
116 added progress bar to dialogfe and fix logger bug in ArchTemplate.
117
118 18 Feb 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
119 Created GLISayWhat module. Renamed GLISayWhat to GLILocalization. Moved
120 lang parameter to __init__()

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

132
133 5 Feb 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
134 Changed the raising of 'warning' exceptions to a simple log of the error
135 so that the installer can continue.
136
137 3 Feb 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
138 Some big changes. First, changed most output to display_on_tty8.
139 Second, added log lines to all templates. Some smaller fixes such as typos.
140 Also did some cleanups of old commented lines.
141
142 1 Feb 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
143 Changed tty8 output to a fifo. Minor GLIStorageDevice fix thanks to BenUrban.
144 Undo change with fix. Escaping fix in GLIStorageDevice.py
145
146 31 Jan 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
147 more updates to TODO list. hopefully we'll soon start removing items instead
148 of adding them.
149
150 29 Jan 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
151 Changed the way GLIStorageDevice.get_max_sectors_for_resize() works
152
153 27 Jan 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
154 updated TODO list. (again)
155

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