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

142 10 Feb 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
143 updates to TODO list.
144
145 6 Feb 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
146 Initial code for quickpkg GRP support. Fix loop to grab packages from
147 'emerge -p blah'
148
149 6 Feb 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
150 check for dhcp in the network stuff and emerge it if it is.
151 added quickpkg to TODO list
152
153 5 Feb 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
154 Changed the raising of 'warning' exceptions to a simple log of the error
155 so that the installer can continue.
156
157 3 Feb 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
158 Some big changes. First, changed most output to display_on_tty8.
159 Second, added log lines to all templates. Some smaller fixes such as typos.
160 Also did some cleanups of old commented lines.
161
162 1 Feb 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
163 Changed tty8 output to a fifo. Minor GLIStorageDevice fix thanks to BenUrban.
164 Undo change with fix. Escaping fix in GLIStorageDevice.py
165
166 31 Jan 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
167 more updates to TODO list. hopefully we'll soon start removing items instead
168 of adding them.
169
170 29 Jan 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
171 Changed the way GLIStorageDevice.get_max_sectors_for_resize() works
172
173 27 Jan 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
174 updated TODO list. (again)
175

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