8 Back. Did the docuementation thang for ArchTemplate and ClientConfiguration.
9 Also updated TODO list.
10
11 14 Apr 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
12 Use blackace's one-liner to add comments for all function for use with
13 pythondoc.
14
15 13 Apr 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
16 Moved 'end >= device_sectors' check out of loop to check for next partition's
17 start point (thanks to Marco Djukic). Fix >4 primary partitions on non-x86.
18 Partitioning code now tracks start/end of extended for placing logicals. End
19 point of logical is now adjusted along with start.
20
21 11 Apr 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
22 Finish overhaul of backend partitioning code. Fixed all bugs that stood in
23 the way of partitioning from a blank disk. Add int() around access to minor
24 key in partition information due to new partition code leaving them as float.
25
26 10 Apr 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
27 tidy_partitions() function in GLIStorageDevice. Tweaks to tidy code
28
29 9 Apr 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
30 Major GLIStorageDevice overhaul...all MB now instead of sectors.
31
32 8 Apr 2005; Scott Myron <samyron@gentoo.org>
33 Added support for DHCP options and MAC addresses in the InstallProfile.
34
35 3 Apr 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
36 Changed mountopts check to work for blank and whitespace. Pipe emerge through
37 sed to properly strip out junk.
38
39 2 Apr 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
40 fixed the way set_timezone works. added hotplug/coldplug for livecd-kernel
41 added --emptytree to stage2. fixed ethx not being added to runlevel defalt.
42
43 31 Mar 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
44 Fixed indent problem in GLICController
45
46 30 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
47 Check for disklabel type "loop" and use the device name without a minor.
48
49 29 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
50 Remove /tmp/compile_output.log and /var/log/install.log when install is
51 complete. Added code to (hopefully) keep 2nd thread running after install.
52 Patch from zahna for extra arguments to the kernel. Patch from zahna to add
53 get_eth_info() function. Remove most of content in amd64ArchTemplate and
54 make it inherit from x86Archtemplate. kernel_args -> bootloader_kernel_args
55
56 28 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
57 Added 'append_log=True' to all spawn() calls using logfile=. Append to log
58 when unpacking tarball.
59
60 28 Mar 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
61 rewrote filesystem_tools. looks like it works so ripping out all the old
62 filesystem_tools code.
63
64 26 Mar 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
65 Changed the print statements to logging in the partitioning BE code.
66 the logger may need to be imported to the x86archtemplate. unknown yet.
67 Added the finishing_cleanup function.
68 added a fix to the logger from BenUrban
69
70 25 Mar 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
71 changed InstallProfile to remove is_uri check on kernel, stage, and portage
72 URIs. The blank uri check has been commented out.
73 ripped out error checking of set_services. this is done by _add_to_runlevel.
74
75 25 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
76 set_stage_tarball_uri() doesn't raise an exception on a blank string.
77
78 24 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
79 GRP-ish quickpkg code pulls PKGDIR and PORTAGE_TMPDIR from make.conf info in
80 the install profile if available. Commented out spawn() debugging prints
81
82 23 Mar 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
83 small changes to setup_network_post. moved adding to runlevel of net.x to
84 after the device gets symlinked. added domainname runlevel command.
85
86 23 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
87 minor fix (hopefully) to livecd-kernel code. Removed call to mkvardb in
88 livecd-kernel code as it's now done by catalyst. Switch _emerge() call to
89 spawn() call in livecd-kernel code to pass environment variables.
90 livecd-kernel code pulls PKGDIR and PORTAGE_TMPDIR from make.conf info in
91 the install profile if available.
92
93 23 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
94 Added code to build_kernel() and emerge_kernel_sources() in ArchTemplate
95 to handle installing the livecd kernel into the new system.
96
97 22 Mar 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
98 should emerge hotplug and coldplug before adding them to runlevel.
99
100 21 Mar 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
101 took chroot out of grub_install command.
102
103 21 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
104 Changed chroot wrapper code in spawn() to write the wrapper the python way
105 instead of the bash way to avoid quote conflicts. Added
106 'logfile=self._compile_logfile' to a number of spawn() calls. Added new
107 hash_password() function to GLIUtility. Remove command to 'rm /tmp/spawn.sh'
108 as it breaks the piping.
109
110 20 Mar 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
111 Added the amd64ArchitectureTemplate, mostly a copy of x86 without lilo.
112
113 20 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
114 Added _get_packages_to_emerge() to GLIArchitectureTemplate and calls in
115 stage1() and stage2(). Added 'origminor' parameter to GLIStorageDevice and
116 GLIInstallProfile.
117
118 19 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
119 Fixed a couple bugs in add_netmount() in GLIInstallProfile. spawn() outputs
120 to the actual tty8 with display_on_tty8 flag. Compile output logfile moved
121 into /mnt/gentoo in prepare_chroot()
122
123 18 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
124 Add sigunmask.c contributed by d_m (on freenode) to counteract python's
125 retarted behavior regarding threads and signals. Add code to convert MB/%/*
126 to start/end sectors
127
128 17 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
129 Add 2>&1 to cmd in spawn()
130
131 16 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
132 Modified GLIUtility.exitsuccess() to work with return value from
133 commands.getstatusoutput instead of os.waitpid(). spawn() automatically
134 creates wrapper script for commands run inside chroot so multiple commands
135 and redirection can be used. Change exitsuccess() back. Added 'chmod a+x'
136 for the generated script from spawn()
137
138 16 Mar 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
139 Removed default values for stage tarball URI and portage tree URI from
140 InstallProfile. These should be set by the FEs. also added services step to
141 ArchTemplate and coldplug/hotplug runlevels to the genkernel step.
142 Possibly fixed CC DHCP bug with -n. (thx agaffney)
143
144 14 Mar 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
145 Small fix for setting the default gateway. Also added feature to dialogfe.
146
147 7 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
148 Switched spawn() over to commands.getstatusoutput() instead of fork/waitpid
149
150 1 Mar 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
151 Fixed a bunch of true -> True typos. lots of em
152 only write new resolv.conf if there are dns servers listed.
153
154 1 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
155 Commented out 'display_on_tty8=True' in start_portmap()
156
157 18 Feb 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
158 added progress bar to dialogfe and fix logger bug in ArchTemplate.
159
160 18 Feb 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
161 Created GLISayWhat module. Renamed GLISayWhat to GLILocalization. Moved
162 lang parameter to __init__()
163
164 10 Feb 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
165 updates to TODO list.
166
167 6 Feb 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
168 Initial code for quickpkg GRP support. Fix loop to grab packages from
169 'emerge -p blah'
170
171 6 Feb 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
172 check for dhcp in the network stuff and emerge it if it is.
173 added quickpkg to TODO list
174
175 5 Feb 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
176 Changed the raising of 'warning' exceptions to a simple log of the error
177 so that the installer can continue.
178
179 3 Feb 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
180 Some big changes. First, changed most output to display_on_tty8.
181 Second, added log lines to all templates. Some smaller fixes such as typos.
182 Also did some cleanups of old commented lines.
183
184 1 Feb 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
185 Changed tty8 output to a fifo. Minor GLIStorageDevice fix thanks to BenUrban.
186 Undo change with fix. Escaping fix in GLIStorageDevice.py
187
188 31 Jan 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
189 more updates to TODO list. hopefully we'll soon start removing items instead
190 of adding them.
191
192 29 Jan 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
193 Changed the way GLIStorageDevice.get_max_sectors_for_resize() works
194
195 27 Jan 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
196 updated TODO list. (again)
197
198 25 Jan 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
199 changed output of portmap start to display_on_tty8.
200 fixed bootloader for udev and multiple kernels
201 fixed custom kernel config (again)
202
203 22 Jan 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
204 changed default value of CC._enable_ssh to True because this is smart.
205 added code to allow custom kernel .config. may be unstable and break. sorry.
206
207 21 Jan 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
208 partition() now waits until after it checks for partition flags before delete
209 the partitions :P
210
211 19 Jan 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
212 Updated TODO. swapon failure it temporarily not an error. swapon is an error
213 again. is_uri() check only performed on portage_tree_snapshot_uri if it isn't
214 blank.
215
216 19 Jan 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
217 Various fixes related to the add_users function. Still not yet finished.
218 Added things to the TODO list. Lets start using that!
219
220 18 Jan 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
221 Added code to x86Template to format newly created partitions. Also added
222 some error checking code. GLIStorageDevice passes 'minor' with data to
223 InstallProfile. Added partition() call back in ArchTemplate. Fixed NFS
224 mounting code.
225
226 18 Jan 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
227 Took out unnecessary setting of random livecd root password. the cd already
228 sets it randomly.
229
230 15 Jan 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
231 Took out an unneeded step from CC's run()
232
233 15 Jan 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
234 Attempt at detecting and adding windows partitions to lilo.
235
236 14 Jan 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
237 Added lilo code and cleaned up lilo code. also do_partitioning renamed to
238 partition. fixed misc exit_status => exitstatus typo.
239
240 11 Jan 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
241 Added basic code for resizing filesystems with pyparted. Fixed code for
242 resizing ntfs and ext2/3.
243
244 10 Jan 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
245 Fixed partition() in x86Template so that it scans through logicals and deletes
246 before deleting containing extended partition. Also clears partition table to
247 be safe before third pass.
248
249 08 Jan 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
250 Added mount_network_shares. not able to test it from this computer.
251 will test when i get back to school.
252 also added start_portmap to the client_controller as an always-do.
253 agaffney says this is needed for NFS mounts to work.
254
255 08 Jan 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
256 Partial rewrite of partitioning code in x86Template. No longer shells out to
257 parted to perform actions, now uses all pyparted calls. Code "works" in a
258 test, but still needs lots of TLC. Also modified tests/install.py to work
259 with x86Template and GLIClientConfiguration.
260
261 07 Jan 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
262 Initial move of partitioning code from ArchTemplate to x86Template.
263
264 07 Jan 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
265 Added grp_install and services to InstallProfile. forgot about the set_root_password
266
267 07 Jan 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
268 Fixed a few more edit_configs. fixed a chroot multicommand bug thanks to agaffney.
269 Test Install ran very well (skipping partitioning).
270
271 05 Jan 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
272 My mid-day update. rewrote mount_local_partitions for order of mounting. fixed prepare_chroot
273 rewrote configure_fstab and install_bootloader for new partition format. fixed a few _edit_configs.
274 some may still have eluded me.
275
276 05 Jan 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
277 Overhauled the entire ArchTemplate and did a lot of other misc fixes in order to test it.
278 Just finished mount_local_partitions in GLIArchitectureTemplate
279
280 05 Jan 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
281 Added get_num_sectors() to GLIStorageDevice.
282
283 04 Jan 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
284 GLIStorageDevice now tracks partition boundaries in sectors instead of cylinders.
285 Also now ignores <=100 sectors for free space. Removed remaining depends stuff
286 from GLIInstallProfile.
287
288 20 Dec 2004; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
289 GLIStorageDevice returns "unknown" instead of "" for get_type()
290
291 19 Dec 2004; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
292 Added get_extended_partition() to GLIStorageDevice. Rewrote get_logicals() to
293 actually work. Commented out resizability checking code for speed.
294
295 17 Dec 2004; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
296 Switched to using dumpe2fs to determine free space left in ext2/3 filesystem in
297 GLIStorageDevice at the suggestion of plors
298
299 10 Dec 2004; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
300 Added a function to GLIUtility to pull a value from a make.conf-style config
301 file. Minor type fix to GLIInstallProfile.py
302
303 09 Dec 2004; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
304 Added code in GLIArchitectureTemplate.py to write netmounts into fstab. Separated
305 network mounts from partition data structure in GLIInstallProfile
306
307 27 Nov 2004; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
308 Changed the way GLIStorageDevice.py determines the amount a ext2/3 filesystem
309 can be resized.
310
311 27 Oct 2004; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
312 Added some of the final functions to GLIInstallTemplate.
313 Yes this project is still active despite rare use of the Changelog!
314
315 11 Jun 2004; Nathaniel McCallum <npmccallum@gentoo.org>
316 Added the GLIPartitionTools.py file. This is a temporary insertion of
317 partitioning tools that will eventually go into their own package.
318
319 27 Mar 2004; Nathaniel McCallum <npmccallum@gentoo.org>
320 Added InstallProfileTODO.txt. Added GLIClientConfiguration.py (contains run-time
321 for the program). Added __init__(install_profile, client_configuration) to
322 GLI.InstallProfile. This sets install_profile and client_configuration once so as
323 to avoid constantly passing stuff every time we call a method.
324
325 26 Mar 2004; Nathaniel McCallum <npmccallum@gentoo.org>
326
327 Added another private method to GLI.InstallTemplate. _edit_config() modifies config
328 files without messing up all the other stuff in them. This will be used for making
329 changes to make.conf, rc.conf, /etc/conf.d/net, etc...
330
331 25 Mar 2004; Nathaniel McCallum <npmccallum@gentoo.org>
332
333 Added GLI.InstallTemplate framework. This is not yet functional. However, it does
334 have a few basic things. I added two private methods. One is _depends(). This
335 will be used for dependency checking (ie. unpacking a tarball requires that
336 partitioning has been done). The other is _exec_in_chroot(). This is the exact
337 same syntax as os.system(), however, instead of being run in the liveCD
338 environment, it runs in the chroot. This requires a bit of fork() magic, so I
339 isolated the code. Hope to work more this week to get this class formed...
340
341 14 Feb 2004; Eric Sammer <esammer@gentoo.org>
342
343 Added SAX parsing. Made GLI.InstallProfile a subclass of xml.sax.ContentHandler for
344 obvious reasons. Switched kernel_modules and users to be lists instead of tuples
345 to allow for easier modification (mutable, rather than immutable objects). Updated
346 existing pydoc and added more. Implemented body of GLI.InstallProfile.parse().
347 Cleaned file format of GLI.py a bit. Fixed all accessors to use self references.
348 Added initial unit test code.
349
350 9 Feb 2004; Eric Sammer <esammer@gentoo.org>
351
352 Added initial changelog. Setting up the basic structure of the CVS repository
353 for the project. Added the UML class diagram in docs. Added a skeletal GLI
354 python module. Added misc files such news, authors, etc.
