5 *GLI-0.01 (9 Feb 2004)
6
7 11 Apr 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
8 Finish overhaul of backend partitioning code. Fixed all bugs that stood in
9 the way of partitioning from a blank disk.
10
11 10 Apr 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
12 tidy_partitions() function in GLIStorageDevice. Tweaks to tidy code
13
14 9 Apr 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
15 Major GLIStorageDevice overhaul...all MB now instead of sectors.
16
17 8 Apr 2005; Scott Myron <samyron@gentoo.org>
18 Added support for DHCP options and MAC addresses in the InstallProfile.
19
20 3 Apr 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
21 Changed mountopts check to work for blank and whitespace. Pipe emerge through
22 sed to properly strip out junk.
23
24 2 Apr 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
25 fixed the way set_timezone works. added hotplug/coldplug for livecd-kernel
26 added --emptytree to stage2. fixed ethx not being added to runlevel defalt.
27
28 31 Mar 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
29 Fixed indent problem in GLICController
30
31 30 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
32 Check for disklabel type "loop" and use the device name without a minor.
33
34 29 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
35 Remove /tmp/compile_output.log and /var/log/install.log when install is
36 complete. Added code to (hopefully) keep 2nd thread running after install.
37 Patch from zahna for extra arguments to the kernel. Patch from zahna to add
38 get_eth_info() function. Remove most of content in amd64ArchTemplate and
39 make it inherit from x86Archtemplate. kernel_args -> bootloader_kernel_args
40
41 28 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
42 Added 'append_log=True' to all spawn() calls using logfile=. Append to log
43 when unpacking tarball.
44
45 28 Mar 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
46 rewrote filesystem_tools. looks like it works so ripping out all the old
47 filesystem_tools code.
48
49 26 Mar 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
50 Changed the print statements to logging in the partitioning BE code.
51 the logger may need to be imported to the x86archtemplate. unknown yet.
52 Added the finishing_cleanup function.
53 added a fix to the logger from BenUrban
54
55 25 Mar 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
56 changed InstallProfile to remove is_uri check on kernel, stage, and portage
57 URIs. The blank uri check has been commented out.
58 ripped out error checking of set_services. this is done by _add_to_runlevel.
59
60 25 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
61 set_stage_tarball_uri() doesn't raise an exception on a blank string.
62
63 24 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
64 GRP-ish quickpkg code pulls PKGDIR and PORTAGE_TMPDIR from make.conf info in
65 the install profile if available. Commented out spawn() debugging prints
66
67 23 Mar 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
68 small changes to setup_network_post. moved adding to runlevel of net.x to
69 after the device gets symlinked. added domainname runlevel command.
70
71 23 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
72 minor fix (hopefully) to livecd-kernel code. Removed call to mkvardb in
73 livecd-kernel code as it's now done by catalyst. Switch _emerge() call to
74 spawn() call in livecd-kernel code to pass environment variables.
75 livecd-kernel code pulls PKGDIR and PORTAGE_TMPDIR from make.conf info in
76 the install profile if available.
77
78 23 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
79 Added code to build_kernel() and emerge_kernel_sources() in ArchTemplate
80 to handle installing the livecd kernel into the new system.
81
82 22 Mar 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
83 should emerge hotplug and coldplug before adding them to runlevel.
84
85 21 Mar 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
86 took chroot out of grub_install command.
87
88 21 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
89 Changed chroot wrapper code in spawn() to write the wrapper the python way
90 instead of the bash way to avoid quote conflicts. Added
91 'logfile=self._compile_logfile' to a number of spawn() calls. Added new
92 hash_password() function to GLIUtility. Remove command to 'rm /tmp/spawn.sh'
93 as it breaks the piping.
94
95 20 Mar 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
96 Added the amd64ArchitectureTemplate, mostly a copy of x86 without lilo.
97
98 20 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
99 Added _get_packages_to_emerge() to GLIArchitectureTemplate and calls in
100 stage1() and stage2(). Added 'origminor' parameter to GLIStorageDevice and
101 GLIInstallProfile.
102
103 19 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
104 Fixed a couple bugs in add_netmount() in GLIInstallProfile. spawn() outputs
105 to the actual tty8 with display_on_tty8 flag. Compile output logfile moved
106 into /mnt/gentoo in prepare_chroot()
107
108 18 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
109 Add sigunmask.c contributed by d_m (on freenode) to counteract python's
110 retarted behavior regarding threads and signals. Add code to convert MB/%/*
111 to start/end sectors
112
113 17 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
114 Add 2>&1 to cmd in spawn()
115
116 16 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
117 Modified GLIUtility.exitsuccess() to work with return value from
118 commands.getstatusoutput instead of os.waitpid(). spawn() automatically
119 creates wrapper script for commands run inside chroot so multiple commands
120 and redirection can be used. Change exitsuccess() back. Added 'chmod a+x'
121 for the generated script from spawn()
122
123 16 Mar 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
124 Removed default values for stage tarball URI and portage tree URI from
125 InstallProfile. These should be set by the FEs. also added services step to
126 ArchTemplate and coldplug/hotplug runlevels to the genkernel step.
127 Possibly fixed CC DHCP bug with -n. (thx agaffney)
128
129 14 Mar 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
130 Small fix for setting the default gateway. Also added feature to dialogfe.
131
132 7 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
133 Switched spawn() over to commands.getstatusoutput() instead of fork/waitpid
134
135 1 Mar 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
136 Fixed a bunch of true -> True typos. lots of em
137 only write new resolv.conf if there are dns servers listed.
138
139 1 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
140 Commented out 'display_on_tty8=True' in start_portmap()
141
142 18 Feb 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
143 added progress bar to dialogfe and fix logger bug in ArchTemplate.
144
145 18 Feb 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
146 Created GLISayWhat module. Renamed GLISayWhat to GLILocalization. Moved
147 lang parameter to __init__()
148
149 10 Feb 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
150 updates to TODO list.
151
152 6 Feb 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
153 Initial code for quickpkg GRP support. Fix loop to grab packages from
154 'emerge -p blah'
155
156 6 Feb 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
157 check for dhcp in the network stuff and emerge it if it is.
158 added quickpkg to TODO list
159
160 5 Feb 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
161 Changed the raising of 'warning' exceptions to a simple log of the error
162 so that the installer can continue.
163
164 3 Feb 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
165 Some big changes. First, changed most output to display_on_tty8.
166 Second, added log lines to all templates. Some smaller fixes such as typos.
167 Also did some cleanups of old commented lines.
168
169 1 Feb 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
170 Changed tty8 output to a fifo. Minor GLIStorageDevice fix thanks to BenUrban.
171 Undo change with fix. Escaping fix in GLIStorageDevice.py
172
173 31 Jan 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
174 more updates to TODO list. hopefully we'll soon start removing items instead
175 of adding them.
176
177 29 Jan 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
178 Changed the way GLIStorageDevice.get_max_sectors_for_resize() works
179

181 updated TODO list. (again)
182
183 25 Jan 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>

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