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). Fix >4 primary partitions on non-x86.
10 Partitioning code now tracks start/end of extended for placing logicals. End
11 point of logical is now adjusted along with start.
12
13 11 Apr 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
14 Finish overhaul of backend partitioning code. Fixed all bugs that stood in
15 the way of partitioning from a blank disk. Add int() around access to minor
16 key in partition information due to new partition code leaving them as float.
17
18 10 Apr 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
19 tidy_partitions() function in GLIStorageDevice. Tweaks to tidy code
20
21 9 Apr 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
22 Major GLIStorageDevice overhaul...all MB now instead of sectors.
23
24 8 Apr 2005; Scott Myron <samyron@gentoo.org>
25 Added support for DHCP options and MAC addresses in the InstallProfile.
26
27 3 Apr 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
28 Changed mountopts check to work for blank and whitespace. Pipe emerge through
29 sed to properly strip out junk.
30
31 2 Apr 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
32 fixed the way set_timezone works. added hotplug/coldplug for livecd-kernel
33 added --emptytree to stage2. fixed ethx not being added to runlevel defalt.
34
35 31 Mar 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
36 Fixed indent problem in GLICController
37
38 30 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
39 Check for disklabel type "loop" and use the device name without a minor.
40
41 29 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
42 Remove /tmp/compile_output.log and /var/log/install.log when install is
43 complete. Added code to (hopefully) keep 2nd thread running after install.
44 Patch from zahna for extra arguments to the kernel. Patch from zahna to add
45 get_eth_info() function. Remove most of content in amd64ArchTemplate and
46 make it inherit from x86Archtemplate. kernel_args -> bootloader_kernel_args
47
48 28 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
49 Added 'append_log=True' to all spawn() calls using logfile=. Append to log
50 when unpacking tarball.
51
52 28 Mar 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
53 rewrote filesystem_tools. looks like it works so ripping out all the old
54 filesystem_tools code.
55
56 26 Mar 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
57 Changed the print statements to logging in the partitioning BE code.
58 the logger may need to be imported to the x86archtemplate. unknown yet.
59 Added the finishing_cleanup function.
60 added a fix to the logger from BenUrban
61
62 25 Mar 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
63 changed InstallProfile to remove is_uri check on kernel, stage, and portage
64 URIs. The blank uri check has been commented out.
65 ripped out error checking of set_services. this is done by _add_to_runlevel.
66
67 25 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
68 set_stage_tarball_uri() doesn't raise an exception on a blank string.
69
70 24 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
71 GRP-ish quickpkg code pulls PKGDIR and PORTAGE_TMPDIR from make.conf info in
72 the install profile if available. Commented out spawn() debugging prints
73
74 23 Mar 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
75 small changes to setup_network_post. moved adding to runlevel of net.x to
76 after the device gets symlinked. added domainname runlevel command.
77
78 23 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
79 minor fix (hopefully) to livecd-kernel code. Removed call to mkvardb in
80 livecd-kernel code as it's now done by catalyst. Switch _emerge() call to
81 spawn() call in livecd-kernel code to pass environment variables.
82 livecd-kernel code pulls PKGDIR and PORTAGE_TMPDIR from make.conf info in
83 the install profile if available.
84
85 23 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
86 Added code to build_kernel() and emerge_kernel_sources() in ArchTemplate
87 to handle installing the livecd kernel into the new system.
88
89 22 Mar 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
90 should emerge hotplug and coldplug before adding them to runlevel.
91
92 21 Mar 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
93 took chroot out of grub_install command.
94
95 21 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
96 Changed chroot wrapper code in spawn() to write the wrapper the python way
97 instead of the bash way to avoid quote conflicts. Added
98 'logfile=self._compile_logfile' to a number of spawn() calls. Added new
99 hash_password() function to GLIUtility. Remove command to 'rm /tmp/spawn.sh'
100 as it breaks the piping.
101
102 20 Mar 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
103 Added the amd64ArchitectureTemplate, mostly a copy of x86 without lilo.
104
105 20 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
106 Added _get_packages_to_emerge() to GLIArchitectureTemplate and calls in
107 stage1() and stage2(). Added 'origminor' parameter to GLIStorageDevice and
108 GLIInstallProfile.
109
110 19 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
111 Fixed a couple bugs in add_netmount() in GLIInstallProfile. spawn() outputs
112 to the actual tty8 with display_on_tty8 flag. Compile output logfile moved
113 into /mnt/gentoo in prepare_chroot()
114
115 18 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
116 Add sigunmask.c contributed by d_m (on freenode) to counteract python's
117 retarted behavior regarding threads and signals. Add code to convert MB/%/*
118 to start/end sectors
119
120 17 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
121 Add 2>&1 to cmd in spawn()
122
123 16 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
124 Modified GLIUtility.exitsuccess() to work with return value from
125 commands.getstatusoutput instead of os.waitpid(). spawn() automatically
126 creates wrapper script for commands run inside chroot so multiple commands
127 and redirection can be used. Change exitsuccess() back. Added 'chmod a+x'
128 for the generated script from spawn()
129
130 16 Mar 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
131 Removed default values for stage tarball URI and portage tree URI from
132 InstallProfile. These should be set by the FEs. also added services step to
133 ArchTemplate and coldplug/hotplug runlevels to the genkernel step.
134 Possibly fixed CC DHCP bug with -n. (thx agaffney)
135
136 14 Mar 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
137 Small fix for setting the default gateway. Also added feature to dialogfe.
138
139 7 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
140 Switched spawn() over to commands.getstatusoutput() instead of fork/waitpid
141
142 1 Mar 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
143 Fixed a bunch of true -> True typos. lots of em
144 only write new resolv.conf if there are dns servers listed.
145
146 1 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
147 Commented out 'display_on_tty8=True' in start_portmap()
148
149 18 Feb 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
150 added progress bar to dialogfe and fix logger bug in ArchTemplate.
151
152 18 Feb 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
153 Created GLISayWhat module. Renamed GLISayWhat to GLILocalization. Moved
154 lang parameter to __init__()
155
156 10 Feb 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
157 updates to TODO list.
158
159 6 Feb 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
160 Initial code for quickpkg GRP support. Fix loop to grab packages from
161 'emerge -p blah'
162
163 6 Feb 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
164 check for dhcp in the network stuff and emerge it if it is.
165 added quickpkg to TODO list
166
167 5 Feb 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
168 Changed the raising of 'warning' exceptions to a simple log of the error
169 so that the installer can continue.
170
171 3 Feb 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
172 Some big changes. First, changed most output to display_on_tty8.
173 Second, added log lines to all templates. Some smaller fixes such as typos.
174 Also did some cleanups of old commented lines.
175
176 1 Feb 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
177 Changed tty8 output to a fifo. Minor GLIStorageDevice fix thanks to BenUrban.
178 Undo change with fix. Escaping fix in GLIStorageDevice.py
179
180 31 Jan 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
181 more updates to TODO list. hopefully we'll soon start removing items instead
182 of adding them.
183
184 29 Jan 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
185 Changed the way GLIStorageDevice.get_max_sectors_for_resize() works
186
187 27 Jan 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
188 updated TODO list. (again)
189
190 25 Jan 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
191 changed output of portmap start to display_on_tty8.
192 fixed bootloader for udev and multiple kernels
193 fixed custom kernel config (again)
194
195 22 Jan 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
196 changed default value of CC._enable_ssh to True because this is smart.
197 added code to allow custom kernel .config. may be unstable and break. sorry.
198
199 21 Jan 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
200 partition() now waits until after it checks for partition flags before delete
201 the partitions :P
202
203 19 Jan 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
204 Updated TODO. swapon failure it temporarily not an error. swapon is an error
205 again. is_uri() check only performed on portage_tree_snapshot_uri if it isn't
206 blank.
207
208 19 Jan 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
209 Various fixes related to the add_users function. Still not yet finished.
210 Added things to the TODO list. Lets start using that!
211
212 18 Jan 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
213 Added code to x86Template to format newly created partitions. Also added
214 some error checking code. GLIStorageDevice passes 'minor' with data to
215 InstallProfile. Added partition() call back in ArchTemplate. Fixed NFS
216 mounting code.
217
218 18 Jan 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
219 Took out unnecessary setting of random livecd root password. the cd already
220 sets it randomly.
221
222 15 Jan 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
223 Took out an unneeded step from CC's run()
224
225 15 Jan 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
226 Attempt at detecting and adding windows partitions to lilo.
227
228 14 Jan 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
229 Added lilo code and cleaned up lilo code. also do_partitioning renamed to
230 partition. fixed misc exit_status => exitstatus typo.
231
232 11 Jan 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
233 Added basic code for resizing filesystems with pyparted. Fixed code for
234 resizing ntfs and ext2/3.
235
236 10 Jan 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
237 Fixed partition() in x86Template so that it scans through logicals and deletes
238 before deleting containing extended partition. Also clears partition table to
239 be safe before third pass.
240
241 08 Jan 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
242 Added mount_network_shares. not able to test it from this computer.
243 will test when i get back to school.
244 also added start_portmap to the client_controller as an always-do.
245 agaffney says this is needed for NFS mounts to work.
246
247 08 Jan 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
248 Partial rewrite of partitioning code in x86Template. No longer shells out to
249 parted to perform actions, now uses all pyparted calls. Code "works" in a
250 test, but still needs lots of TLC. Also modified tests/install.py to work
251 with x86Template and GLIClientConfiguration.
252
253 07 Jan 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
254 Initial move of partitioning code from ArchTemplate to x86Template.
255
256 07 Jan 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
257 Added grp_install and services to InstallProfile. forgot about the set_root_password
258
259 07 Jan 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
260 Fixed a few more edit_configs. fixed a chroot multicommand bug thanks to agaffney.
261 Test Install ran very well (skipping partitioning).
262
263 05 Jan 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
264 My mid-day update. rewrote mount_local_partitions for order of mounting. fixed prepare_chroot
265 rewrote configure_fstab and install_bootloader for new partition format. fixed a few _edit_configs.
266 some may still have eluded me.
267
268 05 Jan 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
269 Overhauled the entire ArchTemplate and did a lot of other misc fixes in order to test it.
270 Just finished mount_local_partitions in GLIArchitectureTemplate
271
272 05 Jan 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
273 Added get_num_sectors() to GLIStorageDevice.
274
275 04 Jan 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
276 GLIStorageDevice now tracks partition boundaries in sectors instead of cylinders.
277 Also now ignores <=100 sectors for free space. Removed remaining depends stuff
278 from GLIInstallProfile.
279
280 20 Dec 2004; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
281 GLIStorageDevice returns "unknown" instead of "" for get_type()
282
283 19 Dec 2004; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
284 Added get_extended_partition() to GLIStorageDevice. Rewrote get_logicals() to
285 actually work. Commented out resizability checking code for speed.
286
287 17 Dec 2004; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
288 Switched to using dumpe2fs to determine free space left in ext2/3 filesystem in
289 GLIStorageDevice at the suggestion of plors
290
291 10 Dec 2004; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
292 Added a function to GLIUtility to pull a value from a make.conf-style config
293 file. Minor type fix to GLIInstallProfile.py
294
295 09 Dec 2004; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
296 Added code in GLIArchitectureTemplate.py to write netmounts into fstab. Separated
297 network mounts from partition data structure in GLIInstallProfile
298
299 27 Nov 2004; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
300 Changed the way GLIStorageDevice.py determines the amount a ext2/3 filesystem
301 can be resized.
302
303 27 Oct 2004; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
304 Added some of the final functions to GLIInstallTemplate.
305 Yes this project is still active despite rare use of the Changelog!
306
307 11 Jun 2004; Nathaniel McCallum <npmccallum@gentoo.org>
308 Added the GLIPartitionTools.py file. This is a temporary insertion of
309 partitioning tools that will eventually go into their own package.
310
311 27 Mar 2004; Nathaniel McCallum <npmccallum@gentoo.org>
312 Added InstallProfileTODO.txt. Added GLIClientConfiguration.py (contains run-time
313 for the program). Added __init__(install_profile, client_configuration) to
314 GLI.InstallProfile. This sets install_profile and client_configuration once so as
315 to avoid constantly passing stuff every time we call a method.
316
317 26 Mar 2004; Nathaniel McCallum <npmccallum@gentoo.org>
318
319 Added another private method to GLI.InstallTemplate. _edit_config() modifies config
320 files without messing up all the other stuff in them. This will be used for making
321 changes to make.conf, rc.conf, /etc/conf.d/net, etc...
322
323 25 Mar 2004; Nathaniel McCallum <npmccallum@gentoo.org>
324
325 Added GLI.InstallTemplate framework. This is not yet functional. However, it does
326 have a few basic things. I added two private methods. One is _depends(). This
327 will be used for dependency checking (ie. unpacking a tarball requires that
328 partitioning has been done). The other is _exec_in_chroot(). This is the exact
329 same syntax as os.system(), however, instead of being run in the liveCD
330 environment, it runs in the chroot. This requires a bit of fork() magic, so I
331 isolated the code. Hope to work more this week to get this class formed...
332
333 14 Feb 2004; Eric Sammer <esammer@gentoo.org>
334
335 Added SAX parsing. Made GLI.InstallProfile a subclass of xml.sax.ContentHandler for
336 obvious reasons. Switched kernel_modules and users to be lists instead of tuples
337 to allow for easier modification (mutable, rather than immutable objects). Updated
338 existing pydoc and added more. Implemented body of GLI.InstallProfile.parse().
339 Cleaned file format of GLI.py a bit. Fixed all accessors to use self references.
340 Added initial unit test code.
341
342 9 Feb 2004; Eric Sammer <esammer@gentoo.org>
343
344 Added initial changelog. Setting up the basic structure of the CVS repository
345 for the project. Added the UML class diagram in docs. Added a skeletal GLI
346 python module. Added misc files such news, authors, etc.
