7 30 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
8 Check for disklabel type "loop" and use the device name without a minor.
9
10 29 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
11 Remove /tmp/compile_output.log and /var/log/install.log when install is
12 complete. Added code to (hopefully) keep 2nd thread running after install.
13 Patch from zahna for extra arguments to the kernel. Patch from zahna to add
14 get_eth_info() function. Remove most of content in amd64ArchTemplate and
15 make it inherit from x86Archtemplate. kernel_args -> bootloader_kernel_args
16
17 28 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
18 Added 'append_log=True' to all spawn() calls using logfile=. Append to log
19 when unpacking tarball.
20
21 28 Mar 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
22 rewrote filesystem_tools. looks like it works so ripping out all the old
23 filesystem_tools code.
24
25 26 Mar 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
26 Changed the print statements to logging in the partitioning BE code.
27 the logger may need to be imported to the x86archtemplate. unknown yet.
28 Added the finishing_cleanup function.
29 added a fix to the logger from BenUrban
30
31 25 Mar 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
32 changed InstallProfile to remove is_uri check on kernel, stage, and portage
33 URIs. The blank uri check has been commented out.
34 ripped out error checking of set_services. this is done by _add_to_runlevel.
35
36 25 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
37 set_stage_tarball_uri() doesn't raise an exception on a blank string.
38
39 24 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
40 GRP-ish quickpkg code pulls PKGDIR and PORTAGE_TMPDIR from make.conf info in
41 the install profile if available. Commented out spawn() debugging prints
42
43 23 Mar 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
44 small changes to setup_network_post. moved adding to runlevel of net.x to
45 after the device gets symlinked. added domainname runlevel command.
46
47 23 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
48 minor fix (hopefully) to livecd-kernel code. Removed call to mkvardb in
49 livecd-kernel code as it's now done by catalyst. Switch _emerge() call to
50 spawn() call in livecd-kernel code to pass environment variables.
51 livecd-kernel code pulls PKGDIR and PORTAGE_TMPDIR from make.conf info in
52 the install profile if available.
53
54 23 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
55 Added code to build_kernel() and emerge_kernel_sources() in ArchTemplate
56 to handle installing the livecd kernel into the new system.
57
58 22 Mar 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
59 should emerge hotplug and coldplug before adding them to runlevel.
60
61 21 Mar 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
62 took chroot out of grub_install command.
63
64 21 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
65 Changed chroot wrapper code in spawn() to write the wrapper the python way
66 instead of the bash way to avoid quote conflicts. Added
67 'logfile=self._compile_logfile' to a number of spawn() calls. Added new
68 hash_password() function to GLIUtility. Remove command to 'rm /tmp/spawn.sh'
69 as it breaks the piping.
70
71 20 Mar 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
72 Added the amd64ArchitectureTemplate, mostly a copy of x86 without lilo.
73
74 20 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
75 Added _get_packages_to_emerge() to GLIArchitectureTemplate and calls in
76 stage1() and stage2(). Added 'origminor' parameter to GLIStorageDevice and
77 GLIInstallProfile.
78
79 19 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
80 Fixed a couple bugs in add_netmount() in GLIInstallProfile. spawn() outputs
81 to the actual tty8 with display_on_tty8 flag. Compile output logfile moved
82 into /mnt/gentoo in prepare_chroot()
83
84 18 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
85 Add sigunmask.c contributed by d_m (on freenode) to counteract python's
86 retarted behavior regarding threads and signals. Add code to convert MB/%/*
87 to start/end sectors
88
89 17 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
90 Add 2>&1 to cmd in spawn()
91
92 16 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
93 Modified GLIUtility.exitsuccess() to work with return value from
94 commands.getstatusoutput instead of os.waitpid(). spawn() automatically
95 creates wrapper script for commands run inside chroot so multiple commands
96 and redirection can be used. Change exitsuccess() back. Added 'chmod a+x'
97 for the generated script from spawn()
98
99 16 Mar 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
100 Removed default values for stage tarball URI and portage tree URI from
101 InstallProfile. These should be set by the FEs. also added services step to
102 ArchTemplate and coldplug/hotplug runlevels to the genkernel step.
103 Possibly fixed CC DHCP bug with -n. (thx agaffney)
104
105 14 Mar 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
106 Small fix for setting the default gateway. Also added feature to dialogfe.
107
108 7 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
109 Switched spawn() over to commands.getstatusoutput() instead of fork/waitpid
110
111 1 Mar 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
112 Fixed a bunch of true -> True typos. lots of em
113 only write new resolv.conf if there are dns servers listed.
114
115 1 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
116 Commented out 'display_on_tty8=True' in start_portmap()
117
118 18 Feb 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
119 added progress bar to dialogfe and fix logger bug in ArchTemplate.
120
121 18 Feb 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
122 Created GLISayWhat module. Renamed GLISayWhat to GLILocalization. Moved
123 lang parameter to __init__()

126 updates to TODO list.
127
128 6 Feb 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>

131
132 6 Feb 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
133 check for dhcp in the network stuff and emerge it if it is.
134 added quickpkg to TODO list
135
136 5 Feb 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
137 Changed the raising of 'warning' exceptions to a simple log of the error
138 so that the installer can continue.
139
140 3 Feb 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
141 Some big changes. First, changed most output to display_on_tty8.
142 Second, added log lines to all templates. Some smaller fixes such as typos.
143 Also did some cleanups of old commented lines.
144
145 1 Feb 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
146 Changed tty8 output to a fifo. Minor GLIStorageDevice fix thanks to BenUrban.
147 Undo change with fix. Escaping fix in GLIStorageDevice.py
148
149 31 Jan 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
150 more updates to TODO list. hopefully we'll soon start removing items instead
151 of adding them.
152
153 29 Jan 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
154 Changed the way GLIStorageDevice.get_max_sectors_for_resize() works
155
156 27 Jan 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
157 updated TODO list. (again)
158

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