7 10 Apr 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
8 tidy_partitions() function in GLIStorageDevice
9
10 9 Apr 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
11 Major GLIStorageDevice overhaul...all MB now instead of sectors.
12
13 8 Apr 2005; Scott Myron <samyron@gentoo.org>
14 Added support for DHCP options and MAC addresses in the InstallProfile.
15
16 3 Apr 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
17 Changed mountopts check to work for blank and whitespace. Pipe emerge through
18 sed to properly strip out junk.
19
20 2 Apr 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
21 fixed the way set_timezone works. added hotplug/coldplug for livecd-kernel
22 added --emptytree to stage2. fixed ethx not being added to runlevel defalt.
23
24 31 Mar 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
25 Fixed indent problem in GLICController
26
27 30 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
28 Check for disklabel type "loop" and use the device name without a minor.
29
30 29 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
31 Remove /tmp/compile_output.log and /var/log/install.log when install is
32 complete. Added code to (hopefully) keep 2nd thread running after install.
33 Patch from zahna for extra arguments to the kernel. Patch from zahna to add
34 get_eth_info() function. Remove most of content in amd64ArchTemplate and
35 make it inherit from x86Archtemplate. kernel_args -> bootloader_kernel_args
36
37 28 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
38 Added 'append_log=True' to all spawn() calls using logfile=. Append to log
39 when unpacking tarball.
40
41 28 Mar 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
42 rewrote filesystem_tools. looks like it works so ripping out all the old
43 filesystem_tools code.
44
45 26 Mar 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
46 Changed the print statements to logging in the partitioning BE code.
47 the logger may need to be imported to the x86archtemplate. unknown yet.
48 Added the finishing_cleanup function.
49 added a fix to the logger from BenUrban
50
51 25 Mar 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
52 changed InstallProfile to remove is_uri check on kernel, stage, and portage
53 URIs. The blank uri check has been commented out.
54 ripped out error checking of set_services. this is done by _add_to_runlevel.
55
56 25 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
57 set_stage_tarball_uri() doesn't raise an exception on a blank string.
58
59 24 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
60 GRP-ish quickpkg code pulls PKGDIR and PORTAGE_TMPDIR from make.conf info in
61 the install profile if available. Commented out spawn() debugging prints
62
63 23 Mar 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
64 small changes to setup_network_post. moved adding to runlevel of net.x to
65 after the device gets symlinked. added domainname runlevel command.
66
67 23 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
68 minor fix (hopefully) to livecd-kernel code. Removed call to mkvardb in
69 livecd-kernel code as it's now done by catalyst. Switch _emerge() call to
70 spawn() call in livecd-kernel code to pass environment variables.
71 livecd-kernel code pulls PKGDIR and PORTAGE_TMPDIR from make.conf info in
72 the install profile if available.
73
74 23 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
75 Added code to build_kernel() and emerge_kernel_sources() in ArchTemplate
76 to handle installing the livecd kernel into the new system.
77
78 22 Mar 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
79 should emerge hotplug and coldplug before adding them to runlevel.
80
81 21 Mar 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
82 took chroot out of grub_install command.
83
84 21 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
85 Changed chroot wrapper code in spawn() to write the wrapper the python way
86 instead of the bash way to avoid quote conflicts. Added
87 'logfile=self._compile_logfile' to a number of spawn() calls. Added new
88 hash_password() function to GLIUtility. Remove command to 'rm /tmp/spawn.sh'
89 as it breaks the piping.
90
91 20 Mar 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
92 Added the amd64ArchitectureTemplate, mostly a copy of x86 without lilo.
93
94 20 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
95 Added _get_packages_to_emerge() to GLIArchitectureTemplate and calls in
96 stage1() and stage2(). Added 'origminor' parameter to GLIStorageDevice and
97 GLIInstallProfile.
98
99 19 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
100 Fixed a couple bugs in add_netmount() in GLIInstallProfile. spawn() outputs
101 to the actual tty8 with display_on_tty8 flag. Compile output logfile moved
102 into /mnt/gentoo in prepare_chroot()
103
104 18 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
105 Add sigunmask.c contributed by d_m (on freenode) to counteract python's
106 retarted behavior regarding threads and signals. Add code to convert MB/%/*
107 to start/end sectors
108
109 17 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
110 Add 2>&1 to cmd in spawn()
111
112 16 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
113 Modified GLIUtility.exitsuccess() to work with return value from
114 commands.getstatusoutput instead of os.waitpid(). spawn() automatically
115 creates wrapper script for commands run inside chroot so multiple commands
116 and redirection can be used. Change exitsuccess() back. Added 'chmod a+x'
117 for the generated script from spawn()
118
119 16 Mar 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
120 Removed default values for stage tarball URI and portage tree URI from
121 InstallProfile. These should be set by the FEs. also added services step to
122 ArchTemplate and coldplug/hotplug runlevels to the genkernel step.
123 Possibly fixed CC DHCP bug with -n. (thx agaffney)
124
125 14 Mar 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
126 Small fix for setting the default gateway. Also added feature to dialogfe.
127
128 7 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
129 Switched spawn() over to commands.getstatusoutput() instead of fork/waitpid
130
131 1 Mar 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
132 Fixed a bunch of true -> True typos. lots of em
133 only write new resolv.conf if there are dns servers listed.
134
135 1 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
136 Commented out 'display_on_tty8=True' in start_portmap()
137
138 18 Feb 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
139 added progress bar to dialogfe and fix logger bug in ArchTemplate.
140
141 18 Feb 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
142 Created GLISayWhat module. Renamed GLISayWhat to GLILocalization. Moved
143 lang parameter to __init__()
144
145 10 Feb 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
146 updates to TODO list.
147
148 6 Feb 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
149 Initial code for quickpkg GRP support. Fix loop to grab packages from
150 'emerge -p blah'
151
152 6 Feb 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
153 check for dhcp in the network stuff and emerge it if it is.
154 added quickpkg to TODO list
155
156 5 Feb 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
157 Changed the raising of 'warning' exceptions to a simple log of the error
158 so that the installer can continue.
159
160 3 Feb 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
161 Some big changes. First, changed most output to display_on_tty8.
162 Second, added log lines to all templates. Some smaller fixes such as typos.
163 Also did some cleanups of old commented lines.
164
165 1 Feb 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
166 Changed tty8 output to a fifo. Minor GLIStorageDevice fix thanks to BenUrban.
167 Undo change with fix. Escaping fix in GLIStorageDevice.py
168
169 31 Jan 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
170 more updates to TODO list. hopefully we'll soon start removing items instead
171 of adding them.
172
173 29 Jan 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
174 Changed the way GLIStorageDevice.get_max_sectors_for_resize() works
175
176 27 Jan 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
177 updated TODO list. (again)
178
179 25 Jan 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>

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