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

151 updates to TODO list.
152
153 6 Feb 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
154 Initial code for quickpkg GRP support. Fix loop to grab packages from
155 'emerge -p blah'
156
157 6 Feb 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
158 check for dhcp in the network stuff and emerge it if it is.
159 added quickpkg to TODO list
160
161 5 Feb 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
162 Changed the raising of 'warning' exceptions to a simple log of the error
163 so that the installer can continue.
164
165 3 Feb 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
166 Some big changes. First, changed most output to display_on_tty8.
167 Second, added log lines to all templates. Some smaller fixes such as typos.
168 Also did some cleanups of old commented lines.
169
170 1 Feb 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
171 Changed tty8 output to a fifo. Minor GLIStorageDevice fix thanks to BenUrban.
172 Undo change with fix. Escaping fix in GLIStorageDevice.py
173
174 31 Jan 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
175 more updates to TODO list. hopefully we'll soon start removing items instead
176 of adding them.
177
178 29 Jan 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
179 Changed the way GLIStorageDevice.get_max_sectors_for_resize() works
180

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