5 *GLI-0.01 (9 Feb 2004)
6
7 2 Apr 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
8 fixed the way set_timezone works. added hotplug/coldplug for livecd-kernel
9 added --emptytree to stage2.
10
11 31 Mar 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
12 Fixed indent problem in GLICController
13
14 30 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
15 Check for disklabel type "loop" and use the device name without a minor.
16
17 29 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
18 Remove /tmp/compile_output.log and /var/log/install.log when install is
19 complete. Added code to (hopefully) keep 2nd thread running after install.
20 Patch from zahna for extra arguments to the kernel. Patch from zahna to add
21 get_eth_info() function. Remove most of content in amd64ArchTemplate and
22 make it inherit from x86Archtemplate. kernel_args -> bootloader_kernel_args
23
24 28 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
25 Added 'append_log=True' to all spawn() calls using logfile=. Append to log
26 when unpacking tarball.
27
28 28 Mar 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
29 rewrote filesystem_tools. looks like it works so ripping out all the old
30 filesystem_tools code.
31
32 26 Mar 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
33 Changed the print statements to logging in the partitioning BE code.
34 the logger may need to be imported to the x86archtemplate. unknown yet.
35 Added the finishing_cleanup function.
36 added a fix to the logger from BenUrban
37
38 25 Mar 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
39 changed InstallProfile to remove is_uri check on kernel, stage, and portage
40 URIs. The blank uri check has been commented out.
41 ripped out error checking of set_services. this is done by _add_to_runlevel.
42
43 25 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
44 set_stage_tarball_uri() doesn't raise an exception on a blank string.
45
46 24 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
47 GRP-ish quickpkg code pulls PKGDIR and PORTAGE_TMPDIR from make.conf info in
48 the install profile if available. Commented out spawn() debugging prints
49
50 23 Mar 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
51 small changes to setup_network_post. moved adding to runlevel of net.x to
52 after the device gets symlinked. added domainname runlevel command.
53
54 23 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
55 minor fix (hopefully) to livecd-kernel code. Removed call to mkvardb in
56 livecd-kernel code as it's now done by catalyst. Switch _emerge() call to
57 spawn() call in livecd-kernel code to pass environment variables.
58 livecd-kernel code pulls PKGDIR and PORTAGE_TMPDIR from make.conf info in
59 the install profile if available.
60
61 23 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
62 Added code to build_kernel() and emerge_kernel_sources() in ArchTemplate
63 to handle installing the livecd kernel into the new system.
64
65 22 Mar 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
66 should emerge hotplug and coldplug before adding them to runlevel.
67
68 21 Mar 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
69 took chroot out of grub_install command.
70
71 21 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
72 Changed chroot wrapper code in spawn() to write the wrapper the python way
73 instead of the bash way to avoid quote conflicts. Added
74 'logfile=self._compile_logfile' to a number of spawn() calls. Added new
75 hash_password() function to GLIUtility. Remove command to 'rm /tmp/spawn.sh'
76 as it breaks the piping.
77
78 20 Mar 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
79 Added the amd64ArchitectureTemplate, mostly a copy of x86 without lilo.
80
81 20 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
82 Added _get_packages_to_emerge() to GLIArchitectureTemplate and calls in
83 stage1() and stage2(). Added 'origminor' parameter to GLIStorageDevice and
84 GLIInstallProfile.
85
86 19 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
87 Fixed a couple bugs in add_netmount() in GLIInstallProfile. spawn() outputs
88 to the actual tty8 with display_on_tty8 flag. Compile output logfile moved
89 into /mnt/gentoo in prepare_chroot()
90
91 18 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
92 Add sigunmask.c contributed by d_m (on freenode) to counteract python's
93 retarted behavior regarding threads and signals. Add code to convert MB/%/*
94 to start/end sectors
95
96 17 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
97 Add 2>&1 to cmd in spawn()
98
99 16 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
100 Modified GLIUtility.exitsuccess() to work with return value from
101 commands.getstatusoutput instead of os.waitpid(). spawn() automatically
102 creates wrapper script for commands run inside chroot so multiple commands
103 and redirection can be used. Change exitsuccess() back. Added 'chmod a+x'
104 for the generated script from spawn()
105
106 16 Mar 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
107 Removed default values for stage tarball URI and portage tree URI from
108 InstallProfile. These should be set by the FEs. also added services step to
109 ArchTemplate and coldplug/hotplug runlevels to the genkernel step.
110 Possibly fixed CC DHCP bug with -n. (thx agaffney)
111
112 14 Mar 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
113 Small fix for setting the default gateway. Also added feature to dialogfe.
114
115 7 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
116 Switched spawn() over to commands.getstatusoutput() instead of fork/waitpid
117
118 1 Mar 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
119 Fixed a bunch of true -> True typos. lots of em
120 only write new resolv.conf if there are dns servers listed.
121
122 1 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
123 Commented out 'display_on_tty8=True' in start_portmap()
124
125 18 Feb 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
126 added progress bar to dialogfe and fix logger bug in ArchTemplate.
127
128 18 Feb 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>

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

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