7 14 Apr 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
8 Use blackace's one-liner to add comments for all function for use with
9 pythondoc.
10
11 13 Apr 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
12 Moved 'end >= device_sectors' check out of loop to check for next partition's
13 start point (thanks to Marco Djukic). Fix >4 primary partitions on non-x86.
14 Partitioning code now tracks start/end of extended for placing logicals. End
15 point of logical is now adjusted along with start.
16
17 11 Apr 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
18 Finish overhaul of backend partitioning code. Fixed all bugs that stood in
19 the way of partitioning from a blank disk. Add int() around access to minor
20 key in partition information due to new partition code leaving them as float.
21
22 10 Apr 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
23 tidy_partitions() function in GLIStorageDevice. Tweaks to tidy code
24
25 9 Apr 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
26 Major GLIStorageDevice overhaul...all MB now instead of sectors.
27
28 8 Apr 2005; Scott Myron <samyron@gentoo.org>
29 Added support for DHCP options and MAC addresses in the InstallProfile.
30
31 3 Apr 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
32 Changed mountopts check to work for blank and whitespace. Pipe emerge through
33 sed to properly strip out junk.
34
35 2 Apr 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
36 fixed the way set_timezone works. added hotplug/coldplug for livecd-kernel
37 added --emptytree to stage2. fixed ethx not being added to runlevel defalt.
38
39 31 Mar 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
40 Fixed indent problem in GLICController
41
42 30 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
43 Check for disklabel type "loop" and use the device name without a minor.
44
45 29 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
46 Remove /tmp/compile_output.log and /var/log/install.log when install is
47 complete. Added code to (hopefully) keep 2nd thread running after install.
48 Patch from zahna for extra arguments to the kernel. Patch from zahna to add
49 get_eth_info() function. Remove most of content in amd64ArchTemplate and
50 make it inherit from x86Archtemplate. kernel_args -> bootloader_kernel_args
51
52 28 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
53 Added 'append_log=True' to all spawn() calls using logfile=. Append to log
54 when unpacking tarball.
55
56 28 Mar 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
57 rewrote filesystem_tools. looks like it works so ripping out all the old
58 filesystem_tools code.
59
60 26 Mar 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
61 Changed the print statements to logging in the partitioning BE code.
62 the logger may need to be imported to the x86archtemplate. unknown yet.
63 Added the finishing_cleanup function.
64 added a fix to the logger from BenUrban
65
66 25 Mar 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
67 changed InstallProfile to remove is_uri check on kernel, stage, and portage
68 URIs. The blank uri check has been commented out.
69 ripped out error checking of set_services. this is done by _add_to_runlevel.
70
71 25 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
72 set_stage_tarball_uri() doesn't raise an exception on a blank string.
73
74 24 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
75 GRP-ish quickpkg code pulls PKGDIR and PORTAGE_TMPDIR from make.conf info in
76 the install profile if available. Commented out spawn() debugging prints
77
78 23 Mar 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
79 small changes to setup_network_post. moved adding to runlevel of net.x to
80 after the device gets symlinked. added domainname runlevel command.
81
82 23 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
83 minor fix (hopefully) to livecd-kernel code. Removed call to mkvardb in
84 livecd-kernel code as it's now done by catalyst. Switch _emerge() call to
85 spawn() call in livecd-kernel code to pass environment variables.
86 livecd-kernel code pulls PKGDIR and PORTAGE_TMPDIR from make.conf info in
87 the install profile if available.
88
89 23 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
90 Added code to build_kernel() and emerge_kernel_sources() in ArchTemplate
91 to handle installing the livecd kernel into the new system.
92
93 22 Mar 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
94 should emerge hotplug and coldplug before adding them to runlevel.
95
96 21 Mar 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
97 took chroot out of grub_install command.
98
99 21 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
100 Changed chroot wrapper code in spawn() to write the wrapper the python way
101 instead of the bash way to avoid quote conflicts. Added
102 'logfile=self._compile_logfile' to a number of spawn() calls. Added new
103 hash_password() function to GLIUtility. Remove command to 'rm /tmp/spawn.sh'
104 as it breaks the piping.
105
106 20 Mar 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
107 Added the amd64ArchitectureTemplate, mostly a copy of x86 without lilo.
108
109 20 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
110 Added _get_packages_to_emerge() to GLIArchitectureTemplate and calls in
111 stage1() and stage2(). Added 'origminor' parameter to GLIStorageDevice and
112 GLIInstallProfile.
113
114 19 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
115 Fixed a couple bugs in add_netmount() in GLIInstallProfile. spawn() outputs
116 to the actual tty8 with display_on_tty8 flag. Compile output logfile moved
117 into /mnt/gentoo in prepare_chroot()
118
119 18 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
120 Add sigunmask.c contributed by d_m (on freenode) to counteract python's
121 retarted behavior regarding threads and signals. Add code to convert MB/%/*
122 to start/end sectors
123
124 17 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
125 Add 2>&1 to cmd in spawn()
126
127 16 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
128 Modified GLIUtility.exitsuccess() to work with return value from
129 commands.getstatusoutput instead of os.waitpid(). spawn() automatically
130 creates wrapper script for commands run inside chroot so multiple commands
131 and redirection can be used. Change exitsuccess() back. Added 'chmod a+x'
132 for the generated script from spawn()
133
134 16 Mar 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
135 Removed default values for stage tarball URI and portage tree URI from
136 InstallProfile. These should be set by the FEs. also added services step to
137 ArchTemplate and coldplug/hotplug runlevels to the genkernel step.
138 Possibly fixed CC DHCP bug with -n. (thx agaffney)
139
140 14 Mar 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
141 Small fix for setting the default gateway. Also added feature to dialogfe.
142
143 7 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
144 Switched spawn() over to commands.getstatusoutput() instead of fork/waitpid
145
146 1 Mar 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
147 Fixed a bunch of true -> True typos. lots of em
148 only write new resolv.conf if there are dns servers listed.
149
150 1 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
151 Commented out 'display_on_tty8=True' in start_portmap()
152
153 18 Feb 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
154 added progress bar to dialogfe and fix logger bug in ArchTemplate.
155
156 18 Feb 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
157 Created GLISayWhat module. Renamed GLISayWhat to GLILocalization. Moved
158 lang parameter to __init__()
159
160 10 Feb 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
161 updates to TODO list.
162
163 6 Feb 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
164 Initial code for quickpkg GRP support. Fix loop to grab packages from
165 'emerge -p blah'
166
167 6 Feb 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
168 check for dhcp in the network stuff and emerge it if it is.
169 added quickpkg to TODO list
170
171 5 Feb 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
172 Changed the raising of 'warning' exceptions to a simple log of the error
173 so that the installer can continue.
174
175 3 Feb 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
176 Some big changes. First, changed most output to display_on_tty8.
177 Second, added log lines to all templates. Some smaller fixes such as typos.
178 Also did some cleanups of old commented lines.
179
180 1 Feb 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
181 Changed tty8 output to a fifo. Minor GLIStorageDevice fix thanks to BenUrban.
182 Undo change with fix. Escaping fix in GLIStorageDevice.py
183
184 31 Jan 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
185 more updates to TODO list. hopefully we'll soon start removing items instead
186 of adding them.
187
188 29 Jan 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
189 Changed the way GLIStorageDevice.get_max_sectors_for_resize() works
190
191 27 Jan 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
192 updated TODO list. (again)
193
194 25 Jan 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
195 changed output of portmap start to display_on_tty8.
196 fixed bootloader for udev and multiple kernels
197 fixed custom kernel config (again)
198
199 22 Jan 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
200 changed default value of CC._enable_ssh to True because this is smart.
201 added code to allow custom kernel .config. may be unstable and break. sorry.
202
203 21 Jan 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
204 partition() now waits until after it checks for partition flags before delete
205 the partitions :P
206
207 19 Jan 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
208 Updated TODO. swapon failure it temporarily not an error. swapon is an error
209 again. is_uri() check only performed on portage_tree_snapshot_uri if it isn't
210 blank.
211
212 19 Jan 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
213 Various fixes related to the add_users function. Still not yet finished.
214 Added things to the TODO list. Lets start using that!
215
216 18 Jan 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
217 Added code to x86Template to format newly created partitions. Also added
218 some error checking code. GLIStorageDevice passes 'minor' with data to
219 InstallProfile. Added partition() call back in ArchTemplate. Fixed NFS
220 mounting code.
221
222 18 Jan 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
223 Took out unnecessary setting of random livecd root password. the cd already
224 sets it randomly.
225
226 15 Jan 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
227 Took out an unneeded step from CC's run()
228
229 15 Jan 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
230 Attempt at detecting and adding windows partitions to lilo.
231
232 14 Jan 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
233 Added lilo code and cleaned up lilo code. also do_partitioning renamed to
234 partition. fixed misc exit_status => exitstatus typo.
235
236 11 Jan 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
237 Added basic code for resizing filesystems with pyparted. Fixed code for
238 resizing ntfs and ext2/3.
239
240 10 Jan 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
241 Fixed partition() in x86Template so that it scans through logicals and deletes
242 before deleting containing extended partition. Also clears partition table to
243 be safe before third pass.
244
245 08 Jan 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
246 Added mount_network_shares. not able to test it from this computer.
247 will test when i get back to school.
248 also added start_portmap to the client_controller as an always-do.
249 agaffney says this is needed for NFS mounts to work.
250
251 08 Jan 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
252 Partial rewrite of partitioning code in x86Template. No longer shells out to
253 parted to perform actions, now uses all pyparted calls. Code "works" in a
254 test, but still needs lots of TLC. Also modified tests/install.py to work
255 with x86Template and GLIClientConfiguration.
256
257 07 Jan 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
258 Initial move of partitioning code from ArchTemplate to x86Template.
259
260 07 Jan 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
261 Added grp_install and services to InstallProfile. forgot about the set_root_password
262
263 07 Jan 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
264 Fixed a few more edit_configs. fixed a chroot multicommand bug thanks to agaffney.
265 Test Install ran very well (skipping partitioning).
266
267 05 Jan 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
268 My mid-day update. rewrote mount_local_partitions for order of mounting. fixed prepare_chroot
269 rewrote configure_fstab and install_bootloader for new partition format. fixed a few _edit_configs.
270 some may still have eluded me.
271
272 05 Jan 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
273 Overhauled the entire ArchTemplate and did a lot of other misc fixes in order to test it.
274 Just finished mount_local_partitions in GLIArchitectureTemplate
275
276 05 Jan 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
277 Added get_num_sectors() to GLIStorageDevice.
278
279 04 Jan 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
280 GLIStorageDevice now tracks partition boundaries in sectors instead of cylinders.
281 Also now ignores <=100 sectors for free space. Removed remaining depends stuff
282 from GLIInstallProfile.
283
284 20 Dec 2004; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
285 GLIStorageDevice returns "unknown" instead of "" for get_type()
286
287 19 Dec 2004; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
288 Added get_extended_partition() to GLIStorageDevice. Rewrote get_logicals() to
289 actually work. Commented out resizability checking code for speed.
290
291 17 Dec 2004; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
292 Switched to using dumpe2fs to determine free space left in ext2/3 filesystem in
293 GLIStorageDevice at the suggestion of plors
294
295 10 Dec 2004; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
296 Added a function to GLIUtility to pull a value from a make.conf-style config
297 file. Minor type fix to GLIInstallProfile.py
298
299 09 Dec 2004; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
300 Added code in GLIArchitectureTemplate.py to write netmounts into fstab. Separated
301 network mounts from partition data structure in GLIInstallProfile
302
303 27 Nov 2004; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
304 Changed the way GLIStorageDevice.py determines the amount a ext2/3 filesystem
305 can be resized.
306
307 27 Oct 2004; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
308 Added some of the final functions to GLIInstallTemplate.
309 Yes this project is still active despite rare use of the Changelog!
310
311 11 Jun 2004; Nathaniel McCallum <npmccallum@gentoo.org>
312 Added the GLIPartitionTools.py file. This is a temporary insertion of
313 partitioning tools that will eventually go into their own package.
314
315 27 Mar 2004; Nathaniel McCallum <npmccallum@gentoo.org>
316 Added InstallProfileTODO.txt. Added GLIClientConfiguration.py (contains run-time
317 for the program). Added __init__(install_profile, client_configuration) to
318 GLI.InstallProfile. This sets install_profile and client_configuration once so as
319 to avoid constantly passing stuff every time we call a method.
320
321 26 Mar 2004; Nathaniel McCallum <npmccallum@gentoo.org>
322
323 Added another private method to GLI.InstallTemplate. _edit_config() modifies config
324 files without messing up all the other stuff in them. This will be used for making
325 changes to make.conf, rc.conf, /etc/conf.d/net, etc...
326
327 25 Mar 2004; Nathaniel McCallum <npmccallum@gentoo.org>
328
329 Added GLI.InstallTemplate framework. This is not yet functional. However, it does
330 have a few basic things. I added two private methods. One is _depends(). This
331 will be used for dependency checking (ie. unpacking a tarball requires that
332 partitioning has been done). The other is _exec_in_chroot(). This is the exact
333 same syntax as os.system(), however, instead of being run in the liveCD
334 environment, it runs in the chroot. This requires a bit of fork() magic, so I
335 isolated the code. Hope to work more this week to get this class formed...
336
337 14 Feb 2004; Eric Sammer <esammer@gentoo.org>
338
339 Added SAX parsing. Made GLI.InstallProfile a subclass of xml.sax.ContentHandler for
340 obvious reasons. Switched kernel_modules and users to be lists instead of tuples
341 to allow for easier modification (mutable, rather than immutable objects). Updated
342 existing pydoc and added more. Implemented body of GLI.InstallProfile.parse().
343 Cleaned file format of GLI.py a bit. Fixed all accessors to use self references.
344 Added initial unit test code.
345
346 9 Feb 2004; Eric Sammer <esammer@gentoo.org>
347
348 Added initial changelog. Setting up the basic structure of the CVS repository
349 for the project. Added the UML class diagram in docs. Added a skeletal GLI
350 python module. Added misc files such news, authors, etc.
