6
7 3 Apr 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
8 Changed mountopts check to work for blank and whitespace. Pipe emerge through
9 sed to properly strip out junk.
10
11 2 Apr 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
12 fixed the way set_timezone works. added hotplug/coldplug for livecd-kernel
13 added --emptytree to stage2. fixed ethx not being added to runlevel defalt.
14
15 31 Mar 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
16 Fixed indent problem in GLICController
17
18 30 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
19 Check for disklabel type "loop" and use the device name without a minor.
20
21 29 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
22 Remove /tmp/compile_output.log and /var/log/install.log when install is
23 complete. Added code to (hopefully) keep 2nd thread running after install.
24 Patch from zahna for extra arguments to the kernel. Patch from zahna to add
25 get_eth_info() function. Remove most of content in amd64ArchTemplate and
26 make it inherit from x86Archtemplate. kernel_args -> bootloader_kernel_args
27
28 28 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
29 Added 'append_log=True' to all spawn() calls using logfile=. Append to log
30 when unpacking tarball.
31
32 28 Mar 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
33 rewrote filesystem_tools. looks like it works so ripping out all the old
34 filesystem_tools code.
35
36 26 Mar 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
37 Changed the print statements to logging in the partitioning BE code.
38 the logger may need to be imported to the x86archtemplate. unknown yet.
39 Added the finishing_cleanup function.
40 added a fix to the logger from BenUrban
41
42 25 Mar 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
43 changed InstallProfile to remove is_uri check on kernel, stage, and portage
44 URIs. The blank uri check has been commented out.
45 ripped out error checking of set_services. this is done by _add_to_runlevel.
46
47 25 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
48 set_stage_tarball_uri() doesn't raise an exception on a blank string.
49
50 24 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
51 GRP-ish quickpkg code pulls PKGDIR and PORTAGE_TMPDIR from make.conf info in
52 the install profile if available. Commented out spawn() debugging prints
53
54 23 Mar 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
55 small changes to setup_network_post. moved adding to runlevel of net.x to
56 after the device gets symlinked. added domainname runlevel command.
57
58 23 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
59 minor fix (hopefully) to livecd-kernel code. Removed call to mkvardb in
60 livecd-kernel code as it's now done by catalyst. Switch _emerge() call to
61 spawn() call in livecd-kernel code to pass environment variables.
62 livecd-kernel code pulls PKGDIR and PORTAGE_TMPDIR from make.conf info in
63 the install profile if available.
64
65 23 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
66 Added code to build_kernel() and emerge_kernel_sources() in ArchTemplate
67 to handle installing the livecd kernel into the new system.
68
69 22 Mar 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
70 should emerge hotplug and coldplug before adding them to runlevel.
71
72 21 Mar 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
73 took chroot out of grub_install command.
74
75 21 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
76 Changed chroot wrapper code in spawn() to write the wrapper the python way
77 instead of the bash way to avoid quote conflicts. Added
78 'logfile=self._compile_logfile' to a number of spawn() calls. Added new
79 hash_password() function to GLIUtility. Remove command to 'rm /tmp/spawn.sh'
80 as it breaks the piping.
81
82 20 Mar 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
83 Added the amd64ArchitectureTemplate, mostly a copy of x86 without lilo.
84
85 20 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
86 Added _get_packages_to_emerge() to GLIArchitectureTemplate and calls in
87 stage1() and stage2(). Added 'origminor' parameter to GLIStorageDevice and
88 GLIInstallProfile.
89
90 19 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
91 Fixed a couple bugs in add_netmount() in GLIInstallProfile. spawn() outputs
92 to the actual tty8 with display_on_tty8 flag. Compile output logfile moved
93 into /mnt/gentoo in prepare_chroot()
94
95 18 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
96 Add sigunmask.c contributed by d_m (on freenode) to counteract python's
97 retarted behavior regarding threads and signals. Add code to convert MB/%/*
98 to start/end sectors
99
100 17 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
101 Add 2>&1 to cmd in spawn()
102
103 16 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
104 Modified GLIUtility.exitsuccess() to work with return value from
105 commands.getstatusoutput instead of os.waitpid(). spawn() automatically
106 creates wrapper script for commands run inside chroot so multiple commands
107 and redirection can be used. Change exitsuccess() back. Added 'chmod a+x'
108 for the generated script from spawn()
109
110 16 Mar 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
111 Removed default values for stage tarball URI and portage tree URI from
112 InstallProfile. These should be set by the FEs. also added services step to
113 ArchTemplate and coldplug/hotplug runlevels to the genkernel step.
114 Possibly fixed CC DHCP bug with -n. (thx agaffney)
115
116 14 Mar 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
117 Small fix for setting the default gateway. Also added feature to dialogfe.
118
119 7 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
120 Switched spawn() over to commands.getstatusoutput() instead of fork/waitpid
121
122 1 Mar 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
123 Fixed a bunch of true -> True typos. lots of em
124 only write new resolv.conf if there are dns servers listed.
125
126 1 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
127 Commented out 'display_on_tty8=True' in start_portmap()
128
129 18 Feb 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
130 added progress bar to dialogfe and fix logger bug in ArchTemplate.
131
132 18 Feb 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
133 Created GLISayWhat module. Renamed GLISayWhat to GLILocalization. Moved
134 lang parameter to __init__()

137 updates to TODO list.
138
139 6 Feb 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
140 Initial code for quickpkg GRP support. Fix loop to grab packages from
141 'emerge -p blah'
142
143 6 Feb 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
144 check for dhcp in the network stuff and emerge it if it is.
145 added quickpkg to TODO list
146
147 5 Feb 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
148 Changed the raising of 'warning' exceptions to a simple log of the error
149 so that the installer can continue.
150
151 3 Feb 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
152 Some big changes. First, changed most output to display_on_tty8.
153 Second, added log lines to all templates. Some smaller fixes such as typos.
154 Also did some cleanups of old commented lines.
155
156 1 Feb 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
157 Changed tty8 output to a fifo. Minor GLIStorageDevice fix thanks to BenUrban.
158 Undo change with fix. Escaping fix in GLIStorageDevice.py
159
160 31 Jan 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
161 more updates to TODO list. hopefully we'll soon start removing items instead
162 of adding them.
163
164 29 Jan 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
165 Changed the way GLIStorageDevice.get_max_sectors_for_resize() works
166
167 27 Jan 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
168 updated TODO list. (again)
169
170 25 Jan 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>

174
175 22 Jan 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
176 changed default value of CC._enable_ssh to True because this is smart.
177 added code to allow custom kernel .config. may be unstable and break. sorry.
178
179 21 Jan 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
180 partition() now waits until after it checks for partition flags before delete
181 the partitions :P
182
183 19 Jan 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
184 Updated TODO. swapon failure it temporarily not an error. swapon is an error
185 again. is_uri() check only performed on portage_tree_snapshot_uri if it isn't
186 blank.
187
188 19 Jan 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
189 Various fixes related to the add_users function. Still not yet finished.
190 Added things to the TODO list. Lets start using that!
191
192 18 Jan 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
193 Added code to x86Template to format newly created partitions. Also added
194 some error checking code. GLIStorageDevice passes 'minor' with data to
195 InstallProfile. Added partition() call back in ArchTemplate. Fixed NFS
196 mounting code.
197
198 18 Jan 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
199 Took out unnecessary setting of random livecd root password. the cd already
200 sets it randomly.
201
202 15 Jan 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
203 Took out an unneeded step from CC's run()
204
205 15 Jan 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
206 Attempt at detecting and adding windows partitions to lilo.
207
208 14 Jan 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
209 Added lilo code and cleaned up lilo code. also do_partitioning renamed to
210 partition. fixed misc exit_status => exitstatus typo.
211
212 11 Jan 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
213 Added basic code for resizing filesystems with pyparted. Fixed code for
214 resizing ntfs and ext2/3.
215
216 10 Jan 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
217 Fixed partition() in x86Template so that it scans through logicals and deletes
218 before deleting containing extended partition. Also clears partition table to
219 be safe before third pass.
220
221 08 Jan 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
222 Added mount_network_shares. not able to test it from this computer.
223 will test when i get back to school.
224 also added start_portmap to the client_controller as an always-do.
225 agaffney says this is needed for NFS mounts to work.
226
227 08 Jan 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
228 Partial rewrite of partitioning code in x86Template. No longer shells out to
229 parted to perform actions, now uses all pyparted calls. Code "works" in a
230 test, but still needs lots of TLC. Also modified tests/install.py to work
231 with x86Template and GLIClientConfiguration.
232
233 07 Jan 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
234 Initial move of partitioning code from ArchTemplate to x86Template.
235
236 07 Jan 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
237 Added grp_install and services to InstallProfile. forgot about the set_root_password
238
239 07 Jan 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
240 Fixed a few more edit_configs. fixed a chroot multicommand bug thanks to agaffney.
241 Test Install ran very well (skipping partitioning).
242
243 05 Jan 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
244 My mid-day update. rewrote mount_local_partitions for order of mounting. fixed prepare_chroot
245 rewrote configure_fstab and install_bootloader for new partition format. fixed a few _edit_configs.
246 some may still have eluded me.
247
248 05 Jan 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
249 Overhauled the entire ArchTemplate and did a lot of other misc fixes in order to test it.
250 Just finished mount_local_partitions in GLIArchitectureTemplate
251
252 05 Jan 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
253 Added get_num_sectors() to GLIStorageDevice.
254
255 04 Jan 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
256 GLIStorageDevice now tracks partition boundaries in sectors instead of cylinders.
257 Also now ignores <=100 sectors for free space. Removed remaining depends stuff
258 from GLIInstallProfile.
259
260 20 Dec 2004; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
261 GLIStorageDevice returns "unknown" instead of "" for get_type()
262
263 19 Dec 2004; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
264 Added get_extended_partition() to GLIStorageDevice. Rewrote get_logicals() to
265 actually work. Commented out resizability checking code for speed.
266
267 17 Dec 2004; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
268 Switched to using dumpe2fs to determine free space left in ext2/3 filesystem in
269 GLIStorageDevice at the suggestion of plors
270
271 10 Dec 2004; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
272 Added a function to GLIUtility to pull a value from a make.conf-style config
273 file. Minor type fix to GLIInstallProfile.py
274
275 09 Dec 2004; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
276 Added code in GLIArchitectureTemplate.py to write netmounts into fstab. Separated
277 network mounts from partition data structure in GLIInstallProfile
278
279 27 Nov 2004; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
280 Changed the way GLIStorageDevice.py determines the amount a ext2/3 filesystem
281 can be resized.
282
283 27 Oct 2004; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
284 Added some of the final functions to GLIInstallTemplate.
285 Yes this project is still active despite rare use of the Changelog!
286
287 11 Jun 2004; Nathaniel McCallum <npmccallum@gentoo.org>
288 Added the GLIPartitionTools.py file. This is a temporary insertion of
289 partitioning tools that will eventually go into their own package.
290
291 27 Mar 2004; Nathaniel McCallum <npmccallum@gentoo.org>
292 Added InstallProfileTODO.txt. Added GLIClientConfiguration.py (contains run-time
293 for the program). Added __init__(install_profile, client_configuration) to
294 GLI.InstallProfile. This sets install_profile and client_configuration once so as
295 to avoid constantly passing stuff every time we call a method.
296
297 26 Mar 2004; Nathaniel McCallum <npmccallum@gentoo.org>
298
299 Added another private method to GLI.InstallTemplate. _edit_config() modifies config
300 files without messing up all the other stuff in them. This will be used for making
301 changes to make.conf, rc.conf, /etc/conf.d/net, etc...
302
303 25 Mar 2004; Nathaniel McCallum <npmccallum@gentoo.org>
304
305 Added GLI.InstallTemplate framework. This is not yet functional. However, it does
306 have a few basic things. I added two private methods. One is _depends(). This
307 will be used for dependency checking (ie. unpacking a tarball requires that
308 partitioning has been done). The other is _exec_in_chroot(). This is the exact
309 same syntax as os.system(), however, instead of being run in the liveCD
310 environment, it runs in the chroot. This requires a bit of fork() magic, so I
311 isolated the code. Hope to work more this week to get this class formed...
312
313 14 Feb 2004; Eric Sammer <esammer@gentoo.org>
314
315 Added SAX parsing. Made GLI.InstallProfile a subclass of xml.sax.ContentHandler for
316 obvious reasons. Switched kernel_modules and users to be lists instead of tuples
317 to allow for easier modification (mutable, rather than immutable objects). Updated
318 existing pydoc and added more. Implemented body of GLI.InstallProfile.parse().
319 Cleaned file format of GLI.py a bit. Fixed all accessors to use self references.
320 Added initial unit test code.
321
322 9 Feb 2004; Eric Sammer <esammer@gentoo.org>
323
324 Added initial changelog. Setting up the basic structure of the CVS repository
325 for the project. Added the UML class diagram in docs. Added a skeletal GLI
326 python module. Added misc files such news, authors, etc.
