7 2 Apr 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
8 fixed the way set_timezone works.
9
10 31 Mar 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
11 Fixed indent problem in GLICController
12
13 30 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
14 Check for disklabel type "loop" and use the device name without a minor.
15
16 29 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
17 Remove /tmp/compile_output.log and /var/log/install.log when install is
18 complete. Added code to (hopefully) keep 2nd thread running after install.
19 Patch from zahna for extra arguments to the kernel. Patch from zahna to add
20 get_eth_info() function. Remove most of content in amd64ArchTemplate and
21 make it inherit from x86Archtemplate. kernel_args -> bootloader_kernel_args
22
23 28 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
24 Added 'append_log=True' to all spawn() calls using logfile=. Append to log
25 when unpacking tarball.
26
27 28 Mar 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
28 rewrote filesystem_tools. looks like it works so ripping out all the old
29 filesystem_tools code.
30
31 26 Mar 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
32 Changed the print statements to logging in the partitioning BE code.
33 the logger may need to be imported to the x86archtemplate. unknown yet.
34 Added the finishing_cleanup function.
35 added a fix to the logger from BenUrban
36
37 25 Mar 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
38 changed InstallProfile to remove is_uri check on kernel, stage, and portage
39 URIs. The blank uri check has been commented out.
40 ripped out error checking of set_services. this is done by _add_to_runlevel.
41
42 25 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
43 set_stage_tarball_uri() doesn't raise an exception on a blank string.
44
45 24 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
46 GRP-ish quickpkg code pulls PKGDIR and PORTAGE_TMPDIR from make.conf info in
47 the install profile if available. Commented out spawn() debugging prints
48
49 23 Mar 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
50 small changes to setup_network_post. moved adding to runlevel of net.x to
51 after the device gets symlinked. added domainname runlevel command.
52
53 23 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
54 minor fix (hopefully) to livecd-kernel code. Removed call to mkvardb in
55 livecd-kernel code as it's now done by catalyst. Switch _emerge() call to
56 spawn() call in livecd-kernel code to pass environment variables.
57 livecd-kernel code pulls PKGDIR and PORTAGE_TMPDIR from make.conf info in
58 the install profile if available.
59
60 23 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
61 Added code to build_kernel() and emerge_kernel_sources() in ArchTemplate
62 to handle installing the livecd kernel into the new system.
63
64 22 Mar 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
65 should emerge hotplug and coldplug before adding them to runlevel.
66
67 21 Mar 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
68 took chroot out of grub_install command.
69
70 21 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
71 Changed chroot wrapper code in spawn() to write the wrapper the python way
72 instead of the bash way to avoid quote conflicts. Added
73 'logfile=self._compile_logfile' to a number of spawn() calls. Added new
74 hash_password() function to GLIUtility. Remove command to 'rm /tmp/spawn.sh'
75 as it breaks the piping.
76
77 20 Mar 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
78 Added the amd64ArchitectureTemplate, mostly a copy of x86 without lilo.
79
80 20 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
81 Added _get_packages_to_emerge() to GLIArchitectureTemplate and calls in
82 stage1() and stage2(). Added 'origminor' parameter to GLIStorageDevice and
83 GLIInstallProfile.
84
85 19 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
86 Fixed a couple bugs in add_netmount() in GLIInstallProfile. spawn() outputs
87 to the actual tty8 with display_on_tty8 flag. Compile output logfile moved
88 into /mnt/gentoo in prepare_chroot()
89
90 18 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
91 Add sigunmask.c contributed by d_m (on freenode) to counteract python's
92 retarted behavior regarding threads and signals. Add code to convert MB/%/*
93 to start/end sectors
94
95 17 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
96 Add 2>&1 to cmd in spawn()
97
98 16 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
99 Modified GLIUtility.exitsuccess() to work with return value from
100 commands.getstatusoutput instead of os.waitpid(). spawn() automatically
101 creates wrapper script for commands run inside chroot so multiple commands
102 and redirection can be used. Change exitsuccess() back. Added 'chmod a+x'
103 for the generated script from spawn()
104
105 16 Mar 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
106 Removed default values for stage tarball URI and portage tree URI from
107 InstallProfile. These should be set by the FEs. also added services step to
108 ArchTemplate and coldplug/hotplug runlevels to the genkernel step.
109 Possibly fixed CC DHCP bug with -n. (thx agaffney)
110
111 14 Mar 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
112 Small fix for setting the default gateway. Also added feature to dialogfe.
113
114 7 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
115 Switched spawn() over to commands.getstatusoutput() instead of fork/waitpid
116
117 1 Mar 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
118 Fixed a bunch of true -> True typos. lots of em
119 only write new resolv.conf if there are dns servers listed.
120
121 1 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
122 Commented out 'display_on_tty8=True' in start_portmap()
123
124 18 Feb 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
125 added progress bar to dialogfe and fix logger bug in ArchTemplate.
126
127 18 Feb 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
128 Created GLISayWhat module. Renamed GLISayWhat to GLILocalization. Moved
129 lang parameter to __init__()

132 updates to TODO list.
133
134 6 Feb 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
135 Initial code for quickpkg GRP support. Fix loop to grab packages from

137
138 6 Feb 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
139 check for dhcp in the network stuff and emerge it if it is.
140 added quickpkg to TODO list
141
142 5 Feb 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
143 Changed the raising of 'warning' exceptions to a simple log of the error
144 so that the installer can continue.
145
146 3 Feb 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
147 Some big changes. First, changed most output to display_on_tty8.
148 Second, added log lines to all templates. Some smaller fixes such as typos.
149 Also did some cleanups of old commented lines.
150
151 1 Feb 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
152 Changed tty8 output to a fifo. Minor GLIStorageDevice fix thanks to BenUrban.
153 Undo change with fix. Escaping fix in GLIStorageDevice.py
154
155 31 Jan 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
156 more updates to TODO list. hopefully we'll soon start removing items instead
157 of adding them.
158
159 29 Jan 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
160 Changed the way GLIStorageDevice.get_max_sectors_for_resize() works
161
162 27 Jan 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
163 updated TODO list. (again)
164
165 25 Jan 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>

169
170 22 Jan 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
171 changed default value of CC._enable_ssh to True because this is smart.
172 added code to allow custom kernel .config. may be unstable and break. sorry.
173
174 21 Jan 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
175 partition() now waits until after it checks for partition flags before delete
176 the partitions :P
177
178 19 Jan 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
179 Updated TODO. swapon failure it temporarily not an error. swapon is an error
180 again. is_uri() check only performed on portage_tree_snapshot_uri if it isn't
181 blank.
182
183 19 Jan 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
184 Various fixes related to the add_users function. Still not yet finished.
185 Added things to the TODO list. Lets start using that!
186
187 18 Jan 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
188 Added code to x86Template to format newly created partitions. Also added
189 some error checking code. GLIStorageDevice passes 'minor' with data to
190 InstallProfile. Added partition() call back in ArchTemplate. Fixed NFS
191 mounting code.
192
193 18 Jan 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
194 Took out unnecessary setting of random livecd root password. the cd already
195 sets it randomly.
196
197 15 Jan 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
198 Took out an unneeded step from CC's run()
199
200 15 Jan 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
201 Attempt at detecting and adding windows partitions to lilo.
202
203 14 Jan 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
204 Added lilo code and cleaned up lilo code. also do_partitioning renamed to
205 partition. fixed misc exit_status => exitstatus typo.
206
207 11 Jan 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
208 Added basic code for resizing filesystems with pyparted. Fixed code for
209 resizing ntfs and ext2/3.
210
211 10 Jan 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
212 Fixed partition() in x86Template so that it scans through logicals and deletes
213 before deleting containing extended partition. Also clears partition table to
214 be safe before third pass.
215
216 08 Jan 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
217 Added mount_network_shares. not able to test it from this computer.
218 will test when i get back to school.
219 also added start_portmap to the client_controller as an always-do.
220 agaffney says this is needed for NFS mounts to work.
221
222 08 Jan 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
223 Partial rewrite of partitioning code in x86Template. No longer shells out to
224 parted to perform actions, now uses all pyparted calls. Code "works" in a
225 test, but still needs lots of TLC. Also modified tests/install.py to work
226 with x86Template and GLIClientConfiguration.
227
228 07 Jan 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
229 Initial move of partitioning code from ArchTemplate to x86Template.
230
231 07 Jan 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
232 Added grp_install and services to InstallProfile. forgot about the set_root_password
233
234 07 Jan 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
235 Fixed a few more edit_configs. fixed a chroot multicommand bug thanks to agaffney.
236 Test Install ran very well (skipping partitioning).
237
238 05 Jan 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
239 My mid-day update. rewrote mount_local_partitions for order of mounting. fixed prepare_chroot
240 rewrote configure_fstab and install_bootloader for new partition format. fixed a few _edit_configs.
241 some may still have eluded me.
242
243 05 Jan 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
244 Overhauled the entire ArchTemplate and did a lot of other misc fixes in order to test it.
245 Just finished mount_local_partitions in GLIArchitectureTemplate
246
247 05 Jan 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
248 Added get_num_sectors() to GLIStorageDevice.
249
250 04 Jan 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
251 GLIStorageDevice now tracks partition boundaries in sectors instead of cylinders.
252 Also now ignores <=100 sectors for free space. Removed remaining depends stuff
253 from GLIInstallProfile.
254
255 20 Dec 2004; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
256 GLIStorageDevice returns "unknown" instead of "" for get_type()
257
258 19 Dec 2004; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
259 Added get_extended_partition() to GLIStorageDevice. Rewrote get_logicals() to
260 actually work. Commented out resizability checking code for speed.
261
262 17 Dec 2004; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
263 Switched to using dumpe2fs to determine free space left in ext2/3 filesystem in
264 GLIStorageDevice at the suggestion of plors
265
266 10 Dec 2004; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
267 Added a function to GLIUtility to pull a value from a make.conf-style config
268 file. Minor type fix to GLIInstallProfile.py
269
270 09 Dec 2004; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
271 Added code in GLIArchitectureTemplate.py to write netmounts into fstab. Separated
272 network mounts from partition data structure in GLIInstallProfile
273
274 27 Nov 2004; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
275 Changed the way GLIStorageDevice.py determines the amount a ext2/3 filesystem
276 can be resized.
277
278 27 Oct 2004; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
279 Added some of the final functions to GLIInstallTemplate.
280 Yes this project is still active despite rare use of the Changelog!
281
282 11 Jun 2004; Nathaniel McCallum <npmccallum@gentoo.org>
283 Added the GLIPartitionTools.py file. This is a temporary insertion of
284 partitioning tools that will eventually go into their own package.
285
286 27 Mar 2004; Nathaniel McCallum <npmccallum@gentoo.org>
287 Added InstallProfileTODO.txt. Added GLIClientConfiguration.py (contains run-time
288 for the program). Added __init__(install_profile, client_configuration) to
289 GLI.InstallProfile. This sets install_profile and client_configuration once so as
290 to avoid constantly passing stuff every time we call a method.
291
292 26 Mar 2004; Nathaniel McCallum <npmccallum@gentoo.org>
293
294 Added another private method to GLI.InstallTemplate. _edit_config() modifies config
295 files without messing up all the other stuff in them. This will be used for making
296 changes to make.conf, rc.conf, /etc/conf.d/net, etc...
297
298 25 Mar 2004; Nathaniel McCallum <npmccallum@gentoo.org>
299
300 Added GLI.InstallTemplate framework. This is not yet functional. However, it does
301 have a few basic things. I added two private methods. One is _depends(). This
302 will be used for dependency checking (ie. unpacking a tarball requires that
303 partitioning has been done). The other is _exec_in_chroot(). This is the exact
304 same syntax as os.system(), however, instead of being run in the liveCD
305 environment, it runs in the chroot. This requires a bit of fork() magic, so I
306 isolated the code. Hope to work more this week to get this class formed...
307
308 14 Feb 2004; Eric Sammer <esammer@gentoo.org>
309
310 Added SAX parsing. Made GLI.InstallProfile a subclass of xml.sax.ContentHandler for
311 obvious reasons. Switched kernel_modules and users to be lists instead of tuples
312 to allow for easier modification (mutable, rather than immutable objects). Updated
313 existing pydoc and added more. Implemented body of GLI.InstallProfile.parse().
314 Cleaned file format of GLI.py a bit. Fixed all accessors to use self references.
315 Added initial unit test code.
316
317 9 Feb 2004; Eric Sammer <esammer@gentoo.org>
318
319 Added initial changelog. Setting up the basic structure of the CVS repository
320 for the project. Added the UML class diagram in docs. Added a skeletal GLI
321 python module. Added misc files such news, authors, etc.
