5 *GLI-0.01 (9 Feb 2004)
6
7 13 Apr 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
8 Moved 'end >= device_sectors' check out of loop to check for next partition's
9 start point (thanks to Marco Djukic).
10
11 11 Apr 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
12 Finish overhaul of backend partitioning code. Fixed all bugs that stood in
13 the way of partitioning from a blank disk. Add int() around access to minor
14 key in partition information due to new partition code leaving them as float.
15
16 10 Apr 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
17 tidy_partitions() function in GLIStorageDevice. Tweaks to tidy code
18
19 9 Apr 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
20 Major GLIStorageDevice overhaul...all MB now instead of sectors.
21
22 8 Apr 2005; Scott Myron <samyron@gentoo.org>
23 Added support for DHCP options and MAC addresses in the InstallProfile.
24
25 3 Apr 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
26 Changed mountopts check to work for blank and whitespace. Pipe emerge through
27 sed to properly strip out junk.
28
29 2 Apr 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
30 fixed the way set_timezone works. added hotplug/coldplug for livecd-kernel
31 added --emptytree to stage2. fixed ethx not being added to runlevel defalt.
32
33 31 Mar 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
34 Fixed indent problem in GLICController
35
36 30 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
37 Check for disklabel type "loop" and use the device name without a minor.
38
39 29 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
40 Remove /tmp/compile_output.log and /var/log/install.log when install is
41 complete. Added code to (hopefully) keep 2nd thread running after install.
42 Patch from zahna for extra arguments to the kernel. Patch from zahna to add
43 get_eth_info() function. Remove most of content in amd64ArchTemplate and
44 make it inherit from x86Archtemplate. kernel_args -> bootloader_kernel_args
45
46 28 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
47 Added 'append_log=True' to all spawn() calls using logfile=. Append to log
48 when unpacking tarball.
49
50 28 Mar 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
51 rewrote filesystem_tools. looks like it works so ripping out all the old
52 filesystem_tools code.
53
54 26 Mar 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
55 Changed the print statements to logging in the partitioning BE code.
56 the logger may need to be imported to the x86archtemplate. unknown yet.
57 Added the finishing_cleanup function.
58 added a fix to the logger from BenUrban
59
60 25 Mar 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
61 changed InstallProfile to remove is_uri check on kernel, stage, and portage
62 URIs. The blank uri check has been commented out.
63 ripped out error checking of set_services. this is done by _add_to_runlevel.
64
65 25 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
66 set_stage_tarball_uri() doesn't raise an exception on a blank string.
67
68 24 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
69 GRP-ish quickpkg code pulls PKGDIR and PORTAGE_TMPDIR from make.conf info in
70 the install profile if available. Commented out spawn() debugging prints
71
72 23 Mar 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
73 small changes to setup_network_post. moved adding to runlevel of net.x to
74 after the device gets symlinked. added domainname runlevel command.
75
76 23 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
77 minor fix (hopefully) to livecd-kernel code. Removed call to mkvardb in
78 livecd-kernel code as it's now done by catalyst. Switch _emerge() call to
79 spawn() call in livecd-kernel code to pass environment variables.
80 livecd-kernel code pulls PKGDIR and PORTAGE_TMPDIR from make.conf info in
81 the install profile if available.
82
83 23 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
84 Added code to build_kernel() and emerge_kernel_sources() in ArchTemplate
85 to handle installing the livecd kernel into the new system.
86
87 22 Mar 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
88 should emerge hotplug and coldplug before adding them to runlevel.
89
90 21 Mar 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
91 took chroot out of grub_install command.
92
93 21 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
94 Changed chroot wrapper code in spawn() to write the wrapper the python way
95 instead of the bash way to avoid quote conflicts. Added
96 'logfile=self._compile_logfile' to a number of spawn() calls. Added new
97 hash_password() function to GLIUtility. Remove command to 'rm /tmp/spawn.sh'
98 as it breaks the piping.
99
100 20 Mar 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
101 Added the amd64ArchitectureTemplate, mostly a copy of x86 without lilo.
102
103 20 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
104 Added _get_packages_to_emerge() to GLIArchitectureTemplate and calls in
105 stage1() and stage2(). Added 'origminor' parameter to GLIStorageDevice and
106 GLIInstallProfile.
107
108 19 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
109 Fixed a couple bugs in add_netmount() in GLIInstallProfile. spawn() outputs
110 to the actual tty8 with display_on_tty8 flag. Compile output logfile moved
111 into /mnt/gentoo in prepare_chroot()
112
113 18 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
114 Add sigunmask.c contributed by d_m (on freenode) to counteract python's
115 retarted behavior regarding threads and signals. Add code to convert MB/%/*
116 to start/end sectors
117
118 17 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
119 Add 2>&1 to cmd in spawn()
120
121 16 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
122 Modified GLIUtility.exitsuccess() to work with return value from
123 commands.getstatusoutput instead of os.waitpid(). spawn() automatically
124 creates wrapper script for commands run inside chroot so multiple commands
125 and redirection can be used. Change exitsuccess() back. Added 'chmod a+x'
126 for the generated script from spawn()
127
128 16 Mar 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
129 Removed default values for stage tarball URI and portage tree URI from
130 InstallProfile. These should be set by the FEs. also added services step to
131 ArchTemplate and coldplug/hotplug runlevels to the genkernel step.
132 Possibly fixed CC DHCP bug with -n. (thx agaffney)
133
134 14 Mar 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
135 Small fix for setting the default gateway. Also added feature to dialogfe.
136
137 7 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
138 Switched spawn() over to commands.getstatusoutput() instead of fork/waitpid
139
140 1 Mar 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
141 Fixed a bunch of true -> True typos. lots of em
142 only write new resolv.conf if there are dns servers listed.
143
144 1 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
145 Commented out 'display_on_tty8=True' in start_portmap()
146
147 18 Feb 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
148 added progress bar to dialogfe and fix logger bug in ArchTemplate.
149
150 18 Feb 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
151 Created GLISayWhat module. Renamed GLISayWhat to GLILocalization. Moved
152 lang parameter to __init__()
153
154 10 Feb 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
155 updates to TODO list.
156
157 6 Feb 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
158 Initial code for quickpkg GRP support. Fix loop to grab packages from
159 'emerge -p blah'
160
161 6 Feb 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
162 check for dhcp in the network stuff and emerge it if it is.
163 added quickpkg to TODO list
164
165 5 Feb 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
166 Changed the raising of 'warning' exceptions to a simple log of the error
167 so that the installer can continue.
168
169 3 Feb 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
170 Some big changes. First, changed most output to display_on_tty8.
171 Second, added log lines to all templates. Some smaller fixes such as typos.
172 Also did some cleanups of old commented lines.
173
174 1 Feb 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
175 Changed tty8 output to a fifo. Minor GLIStorageDevice fix thanks to BenUrban.
176 Undo change with fix. Escaping fix in GLIStorageDevice.py
177
178 31 Jan 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
179 more updates to TODO list. hopefully we'll soon start removing items instead
180 of adding them.
181
182 29 Jan 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
183 Changed the way GLIStorageDevice.get_max_sectors_for_resize() works
184
185 27 Jan 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
186 updated TODO list. (again)
187
188 25 Jan 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
189 changed output of portmap start to display_on_tty8.
190 fixed bootloader for udev and multiple kernels
191 fixed custom kernel config (again)
192
193 22 Jan 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
194 changed default value of CC._enable_ssh to True because this is smart.
195 added code to allow custom kernel .config. may be unstable and break. sorry.
196
197 21 Jan 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
198 partition() now waits until after it checks for partition flags before delete
199 the partitions :P
200
201 19 Jan 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
202 Updated TODO. swapon failure it temporarily not an error. swapon is an error
203 again. is_uri() check only performed on portage_tree_snapshot_uri if it isn't
204 blank.
205
206 19 Jan 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
207 Various fixes related to the add_users function. Still not yet finished.
208 Added things to the TODO list. Lets start using that!
209
210 18 Jan 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
211 Added code to x86Template to format newly created partitions. Also added
212 some error checking code. GLIStorageDevice passes 'minor' with data to
213 InstallProfile. Added partition() call back in ArchTemplate. Fixed NFS
214 mounting code.
215
216 18 Jan 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
217 Took out unnecessary setting of random livecd root password. the cd already
218 sets it randomly.
219
220 15 Jan 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
221 Took out an unneeded step from CC's run()
222
223 15 Jan 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
224 Attempt at detecting and adding windows partitions to lilo.
225
226 14 Jan 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
227 Added lilo code and cleaned up lilo code. also do_partitioning renamed to
228 partition. fixed misc exit_status => exitstatus typo.
229
230 11 Jan 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
231 Added basic code for resizing filesystems with pyparted. Fixed code for
232 resizing ntfs and ext2/3.
233
234 10 Jan 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
235 Fixed partition() in x86Template so that it scans through logicals and deletes
236 before deleting containing extended partition. Also clears partition table to
237 be safe before third pass.
238
239 08 Jan 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
240 Added mount_network_shares. not able to test it from this computer.
241 will test when i get back to school.
242 also added start_portmap to the client_controller as an always-do.
243 agaffney says this is needed for NFS mounts to work.
244
245 08 Jan 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
246 Partial rewrite of partitioning code in x86Template. No longer shells out to
247 parted to perform actions, now uses all pyparted calls. Code "works" in a
248 test, but still needs lots of TLC. Also modified tests/install.py to work
249 with x86Template and GLIClientConfiguration.
250
251 07 Jan 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
252 Initial move of partitioning code from ArchTemplate to x86Template.
253
254 07 Jan 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
255 Added grp_install and services to InstallProfile. forgot about the set_root_password
256
257 07 Jan 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
258 Fixed a few more edit_configs. fixed a chroot multicommand bug thanks to agaffney.
259 Test Install ran very well (skipping partitioning).
260
261 05 Jan 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
262 My mid-day update. rewrote mount_local_partitions for order of mounting. fixed prepare_chroot
263 rewrote configure_fstab and install_bootloader for new partition format. fixed a few _edit_configs.
264 some may still have eluded me.
265
266 05 Jan 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
267 Overhauled the entire ArchTemplate and did a lot of other misc fixes in order to test it.
268 Just finished mount_local_partitions in GLIArchitectureTemplate
269
270 05 Jan 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
271 Added get_num_sectors() to GLIStorageDevice.
272
273 04 Jan 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
274 GLIStorageDevice now tracks partition boundaries in sectors instead of cylinders.
275 Also now ignores <=100 sectors for free space. Removed remaining depends stuff
276 from GLIInstallProfile.
277
278 20 Dec 2004; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
279 GLIStorageDevice returns "unknown" instead of "" for get_type()
280
281 19 Dec 2004; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
282 Added get_extended_partition() to GLIStorageDevice. Rewrote get_logicals() to
283 actually work. Commented out resizability checking code for speed.
284
285 17 Dec 2004; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
286 Switched to using dumpe2fs to determine free space left in ext2/3 filesystem in
287 GLIStorageDevice at the suggestion of plors
288
289 10 Dec 2004; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
290 Added a function to GLIUtility to pull a value from a make.conf-style config
291 file. Minor type fix to GLIInstallProfile.py
292
293 09 Dec 2004; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
294 Added code in GLIArchitectureTemplate.py to write netmounts into fstab. Separated
295 network mounts from partition data structure in GLIInstallProfile
296
297 27 Nov 2004; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
298 Changed the way GLIStorageDevice.py determines the amount a ext2/3 filesystem
299 can be resized.
300
301 27 Oct 2004; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
302 Added some of the final functions to GLIInstallTemplate.
303 Yes this project is still active despite rare use of the Changelog!
304
305 11 Jun 2004; Nathaniel McCallum <npmccallum@gentoo.org>
306 Added the GLIPartitionTools.py file. This is a temporary insertion of
307 partitioning tools that will eventually go into their own package.
308
309 27 Mar 2004; Nathaniel McCallum <npmccallum@gentoo.org>
310 Added InstallProfileTODO.txt. Added GLIClientConfiguration.py (contains run-time
311 for the program). Added __init__(install_profile, client_configuration) to
312 GLI.InstallProfile. This sets install_profile and client_configuration once so as
313 to avoid constantly passing stuff every time we call a method.
314
315 26 Mar 2004; Nathaniel McCallum <npmccallum@gentoo.org>
316
317 Added another private method to GLI.InstallTemplate. _edit_config() modifies config
318 files without messing up all the other stuff in them. This will be used for making
319 changes to make.conf, rc.conf, /etc/conf.d/net, etc...
320
321 25 Mar 2004; Nathaniel McCallum <npmccallum@gentoo.org>
322
323 Added GLI.InstallTemplate framework. This is not yet functional. However, it does
324 have a few basic things. I added two private methods. One is _depends(). This
325 will be used for dependency checking (ie. unpacking a tarball requires that
326 partitioning has been done). The other is _exec_in_chroot(). This is the exact
327 same syntax as os.system(), however, instead of being run in the liveCD
328 environment, it runs in the chroot. This requires a bit of fork() magic, so I
329 isolated the code. Hope to work more this week to get this class formed...
330
331 14 Feb 2004; Eric Sammer <esammer@gentoo.org>
332
333 Added SAX parsing. Made GLI.InstallProfile a subclass of xml.sax.ContentHandler for
334 obvious reasons. Switched kernel_modules and users to be lists instead of tuples
335 to allow for easier modification (mutable, rather than immutable objects). Updated
336 existing pydoc and added more. Implemented body of GLI.InstallProfile.parse().
337 Cleaned file format of GLI.py a bit. Fixed all accessors to use self references.
338 Added initial unit test code.
339
340 9 Feb 2004; Eric Sammer <esammer@gentoo.org>
341
342 Added initial changelog. Setting up the basic structure of the CVS repository
343 for the project. Added the UML class diagram in docs. Added a skeletal GLI
344 python module. Added misc files such news, authors, etc.
