8 Added support for DHCP options and MAC addresses in the InstallProfile.
9
10 3 Apr 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
11 Changed mountopts check to work for blank and whitespace. Pipe emerge through
12 sed to properly strip out junk.
13
14 2 Apr 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
15 fixed the way set_timezone works. added hotplug/coldplug for livecd-kernel
16 added --emptytree to stage2. fixed ethx not being added to runlevel defalt.
17
18 31 Mar 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
19 Fixed indent problem in GLICController
20
21 30 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
22 Check for disklabel type "loop" and use the device name without a minor.
23
24 29 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
25 Remove /tmp/compile_output.log and /var/log/install.log when install is
26 complete. Added code to (hopefully) keep 2nd thread running after install.
27 Patch from zahna for extra arguments to the kernel. Patch from zahna to add
28 get_eth_info() function. Remove most of content in amd64ArchTemplate and
29 make it inherit from x86Archtemplate. kernel_args -> bootloader_kernel_args
30
31 28 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
32 Added 'append_log=True' to all spawn() calls using logfile=. Append to log
33 when unpacking tarball.
34
35 28 Mar 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
36 rewrote filesystem_tools. looks like it works so ripping out all the old
37 filesystem_tools code.
38
39 26 Mar 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
40 Changed the print statements to logging in the partitioning BE code.
41 the logger may need to be imported to the x86archtemplate. unknown yet.
42 Added the finishing_cleanup function.
43 added a fix to the logger from BenUrban
44
45 25 Mar 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
46 changed InstallProfile to remove is_uri check on kernel, stage, and portage
47 URIs. The blank uri check has been commented out.
48 ripped out error checking of set_services. this is done by _add_to_runlevel.
49
50 25 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
51 set_stage_tarball_uri() doesn't raise an exception on a blank string.
52
53 24 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
54 GRP-ish quickpkg code pulls PKGDIR and PORTAGE_TMPDIR from make.conf info in
55 the install profile if available. Commented out spawn() debugging prints
56
57 23 Mar 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
58 small changes to setup_network_post. moved adding to runlevel of net.x to
59 after the device gets symlinked. added domainname runlevel command.
60
61 23 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
62 minor fix (hopefully) to livecd-kernel code. Removed call to mkvardb in
63 livecd-kernel code as it's now done by catalyst. Switch _emerge() call to
64 spawn() call in livecd-kernel code to pass environment variables.
65 livecd-kernel code pulls PKGDIR and PORTAGE_TMPDIR from make.conf info in
66 the install profile if available.
67
68 23 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
69 Added code to build_kernel() and emerge_kernel_sources() in ArchTemplate
70 to handle installing the livecd kernel into the new system.
71
72 22 Mar 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
73 should emerge hotplug and coldplug before adding them to runlevel.
74
75 21 Mar 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
76 took chroot out of grub_install command.
77
78 21 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
79 Changed chroot wrapper code in spawn() to write the wrapper the python way
80 instead of the bash way to avoid quote conflicts. Added
81 'logfile=self._compile_logfile' to a number of spawn() calls. Added new
82 hash_password() function to GLIUtility. Remove command to 'rm /tmp/spawn.sh'
83 as it breaks the piping.
84
85 20 Mar 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
86 Added the amd64ArchitectureTemplate, mostly a copy of x86 without lilo.
87
88 20 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
89 Added _get_packages_to_emerge() to GLIArchitectureTemplate and calls in
90 stage1() and stage2(). Added 'origminor' parameter to GLIStorageDevice and
91 GLIInstallProfile.
92
93 19 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
94 Fixed a couple bugs in add_netmount() in GLIInstallProfile. spawn() outputs
95 to the actual tty8 with display_on_tty8 flag. Compile output logfile moved
96 into /mnt/gentoo in prepare_chroot()
97
98 18 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
99 Add sigunmask.c contributed by d_m (on freenode) to counteract python's
100 retarted behavior regarding threads and signals. Add code to convert MB/%/*
101 to start/end sectors
102
103 17 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
104 Add 2>&1 to cmd in spawn()
105
106 16 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
107 Modified GLIUtility.exitsuccess() to work with return value from
108 commands.getstatusoutput instead of os.waitpid(). spawn() automatically
109 creates wrapper script for commands run inside chroot so multiple commands
110 and redirection can be used. Change exitsuccess() back. Added 'chmod a+x'
111 for the generated script from spawn()
112
113 16 Mar 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
114 Removed default values for stage tarball URI and portage tree URI from
115 InstallProfile. These should be set by the FEs. also added services step to
116 ArchTemplate and coldplug/hotplug runlevels to the genkernel step.
117 Possibly fixed CC DHCP bug with -n. (thx agaffney)
118
119 14 Mar 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
120 Small fix for setting the default gateway. Also added feature to dialogfe.
121
122 7 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
123 Switched spawn() over to commands.getstatusoutput() instead of fork/waitpid
124
125 1 Mar 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
126 Fixed a bunch of true -> True typos. lots of em
127 only write new resolv.conf if there are dns servers listed.
128
129 1 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
130 Commented out 'display_on_tty8=True' in start_portmap()
131
132 18 Feb 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
133 added progress bar to dialogfe and fix logger bug in ArchTemplate.
134
135 18 Feb 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
136 Created GLISayWhat module. Renamed GLISayWhat to GLILocalization. Moved
137 lang parameter to __init__()
138
139 10 Feb 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
140 updates to TODO list.
141
142 6 Feb 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
143 Initial code for quickpkg GRP support. Fix loop to grab packages from
144 'emerge -p blah'
145
146 6 Feb 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
147 check for dhcp in the network stuff and emerge it if it is.
148 added quickpkg to TODO list
149
150 5 Feb 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
151 Changed the raising of 'warning' exceptions to a simple log of the error
152 so that the installer can continue.
153
154 3 Feb 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
155 Some big changes. First, changed most output to display_on_tty8.
156 Second, added log lines to all templates. Some smaller fixes such as typos.
157 Also did some cleanups of old commented lines.
158
159 1 Feb 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
160 Changed tty8 output to a fifo. Minor GLIStorageDevice fix thanks to BenUrban.
161 Undo change with fix. Escaping fix in GLIStorageDevice.py
162
163 31 Jan 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
164 more updates to TODO list. hopefully we'll soon start removing items instead
165 of adding them.
166
167 29 Jan 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
168 Changed the way GLIStorageDevice.get_max_sectors_for_resize() works
169
170 27 Jan 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
171 updated TODO list. (again)
172
173 25 Jan 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>

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