7 11 Apr 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
8 Finish overhaul of backend partitioning code.
9
10 10 Apr 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
11 tidy_partitions() function in GLIStorageDevice. Tweaks to tidy code
12
13 9 Apr 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
14 Major GLIStorageDevice overhaul...all MB now instead of sectors.
15
16 8 Apr 2005; Scott Myron <samyron@gentoo.org>
17 Added support for DHCP options and MAC addresses in the InstallProfile.
18
19 3 Apr 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
20 Changed mountopts check to work for blank and whitespace. Pipe emerge through
21 sed to properly strip out junk.
22
23 2 Apr 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
24 fixed the way set_timezone works. added hotplug/coldplug for livecd-kernel
25 added --emptytree to stage2. fixed ethx not being added to runlevel defalt.
26
27 31 Mar 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
28 Fixed indent problem in GLICController
29
30 30 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
31 Check for disklabel type "loop" and use the device name without a minor.
32
33 29 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
34 Remove /tmp/compile_output.log and /var/log/install.log when install is
35 complete. Added code to (hopefully) keep 2nd thread running after install.
36 Patch from zahna for extra arguments to the kernel. Patch from zahna to add
37 get_eth_info() function. Remove most of content in amd64ArchTemplate and
38 make it inherit from x86Archtemplate. kernel_args -> bootloader_kernel_args
39
40 28 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
41 Added 'append_log=True' to all spawn() calls using logfile=. Append to log
42 when unpacking tarball.
43
44 28 Mar 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
45 rewrote filesystem_tools. looks like it works so ripping out all the old
46 filesystem_tools code.
47
48 26 Mar 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
49 Changed the print statements to logging in the partitioning BE code.
50 the logger may need to be imported to the x86archtemplate. unknown yet.
51 Added the finishing_cleanup function.
52 added a fix to the logger from BenUrban
53
54 25 Mar 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
55 changed InstallProfile to remove is_uri check on kernel, stage, and portage
56 URIs. The blank uri check has been commented out.
57 ripped out error checking of set_services. this is done by _add_to_runlevel.
58
59 25 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
60 set_stage_tarball_uri() doesn't raise an exception on a blank string.
61
62 24 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
63 GRP-ish quickpkg code pulls PKGDIR and PORTAGE_TMPDIR from make.conf info in
64 the install profile if available. Commented out spawn() debugging prints
65
66 23 Mar 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
67 small changes to setup_network_post. moved adding to runlevel of net.x to
68 after the device gets symlinked. added domainname runlevel command.
69
70 23 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
71 minor fix (hopefully) to livecd-kernel code. Removed call to mkvardb in
72 livecd-kernel code as it's now done by catalyst. Switch _emerge() call to
73 spawn() call in livecd-kernel code to pass environment variables.
74 livecd-kernel code pulls PKGDIR and PORTAGE_TMPDIR from make.conf info in
75 the install profile if available.
76
77 23 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
78 Added code to build_kernel() and emerge_kernel_sources() in ArchTemplate
79 to handle installing the livecd kernel into the new system.
80
81 22 Mar 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
82 should emerge hotplug and coldplug before adding them to runlevel.
83
84 21 Mar 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
85 took chroot out of grub_install command.
86
87 21 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
88 Changed chroot wrapper code in spawn() to write the wrapper the python way
89 instead of the bash way to avoid quote conflicts. Added
90 'logfile=self._compile_logfile' to a number of spawn() calls. Added new
91 hash_password() function to GLIUtility. Remove command to 'rm /tmp/spawn.sh'
92 as it breaks the piping.
93
94 20 Mar 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
95 Added the amd64ArchitectureTemplate, mostly a copy of x86 without lilo.
96
97 20 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
98 Added _get_packages_to_emerge() to GLIArchitectureTemplate and calls in
99 stage1() and stage2(). Added 'origminor' parameter to GLIStorageDevice and
100 GLIInstallProfile.
101
102 19 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
103 Fixed a couple bugs in add_netmount() in GLIInstallProfile. spawn() outputs
104 to the actual tty8 with display_on_tty8 flag. Compile output logfile moved
105 into /mnt/gentoo in prepare_chroot()
106
107 18 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
108 Add sigunmask.c contributed by d_m (on freenode) to counteract python's
109 retarted behavior regarding threads and signals. Add code to convert MB/%/*
110 to start/end sectors
111
112 17 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
113 Add 2>&1 to cmd in spawn()
114
115 16 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
116 Modified GLIUtility.exitsuccess() to work with return value from
117 commands.getstatusoutput instead of os.waitpid(). spawn() automatically
118 creates wrapper script for commands run inside chroot so multiple commands
119 and redirection can be used. Change exitsuccess() back. Added 'chmod a+x'
120 for the generated script from spawn()
121
122 16 Mar 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
123 Removed default values for stage tarball URI and portage tree URI from
124 InstallProfile. These should be set by the FEs. also added services step to
125 ArchTemplate and coldplug/hotplug runlevels to the genkernel step.
126 Possibly fixed CC DHCP bug with -n. (thx agaffney)
127
128 14 Mar 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
129 Small fix for setting the default gateway. Also added feature to dialogfe.
130
131 7 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
132 Switched spawn() over to commands.getstatusoutput() instead of fork/waitpid
133
134 1 Mar 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
135 Fixed a bunch of true -> True typos. lots of em
136 only write new resolv.conf if there are dns servers listed.
137
138 1 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
139 Commented out 'display_on_tty8=True' in start_portmap()
140
141 18 Feb 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
142 added progress bar to dialogfe and fix logger bug in ArchTemplate.
143
144 18 Feb 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
145 Created GLISayWhat module. Renamed GLISayWhat to GLILocalization. Moved
146 lang parameter to __init__()
147
148 10 Feb 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
149 updates to TODO list.
150
151 6 Feb 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
152 Initial code for quickpkg GRP support. Fix loop to grab packages from
153 'emerge -p blah'
154
155 6 Feb 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
156 check for dhcp in the network stuff and emerge it if it is.
157 added quickpkg to TODO list
158
159 5 Feb 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
160 Changed the raising of 'warning' exceptions to a simple log of the error
161 so that the installer can continue.
162
163 3 Feb 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
164 Some big changes. First, changed most output to display_on_tty8.
165 Second, added log lines to all templates. Some smaller fixes such as typos.
166 Also did some cleanups of old commented lines.
167
168 1 Feb 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
169 Changed tty8 output to a fifo. Minor GLIStorageDevice fix thanks to BenUrban.
170 Undo change with fix. Escaping fix in GLIStorageDevice.py
171
172 31 Jan 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
173 more updates to TODO list. hopefully we'll soon start removing items instead
174 of adding them.
175
176 29 Jan 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
177 Changed the way GLIStorageDevice.get_max_sectors_for_resize() works
178
179 27 Jan 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
180 updated TODO list. (again)
181
182 25 Jan 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
183 changed output of portmap start to display_on_tty8.

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