5 *GLI-0.01 (9 Feb 2004)
6
7 16 Apr 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
8 Changed _edit_config() to modify value in-place instead of commenting out and
9 adding the new value to the end of the file.
10
11 15 Apr 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
12 Back. Did the docuementation thang for ArchTemplate and ClientConfiguration.
13 Also updated TODO list.
14
15 14 Apr 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
16 Use blackace's one-liner to add comments for all function for use with
17 pythondoc.
18
19 13 Apr 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
20 Moved 'end >= device_sectors' check out of loop to check for next partition's
21 start point (thanks to Marco Djukic). Fix >4 primary partitions on non-x86.
22 Partitioning code now tracks start/end of extended for placing logicals. End
23 point of logical is now adjusted along with start.
24
25 11 Apr 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
26 Finish overhaul of backend partitioning code. Fixed all bugs that stood in
27 the way of partitioning from a blank disk. Add int() around access to minor
28 key in partition information due to new partition code leaving them as float.
29
30 10 Apr 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
31 tidy_partitions() function in GLIStorageDevice. Tweaks to tidy code
32
33 9 Apr 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
34 Major GLIStorageDevice overhaul...all MB now instead of sectors.
35
36 8 Apr 2005; Scott Myron <samyron@gentoo.org>
37 Added support for DHCP options and MAC addresses in the InstallProfile.
38
39 3 Apr 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
40 Changed mountopts check to work for blank and whitespace. Pipe emerge through
41 sed to properly strip out junk.
42
43 2 Apr 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
44 fixed the way set_timezone works. added hotplug/coldplug for livecd-kernel
45 added --emptytree to stage2. fixed ethx not being added to runlevel defalt.
46
47 31 Mar 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
48 Fixed indent problem in GLICController
49
50 30 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
51 Check for disklabel type "loop" and use the device name without a minor.
52
53 29 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
54 Remove /tmp/compile_output.log and /var/log/install.log when install is
55 complete. Added code to (hopefully) keep 2nd thread running after install.
56 Patch from zahna for extra arguments to the kernel. Patch from zahna to add
57 get_eth_info() function. Remove most of content in amd64ArchTemplate and
58 make it inherit from x86Archtemplate. kernel_args -> bootloader_kernel_args
59
60 28 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
61 Added 'append_log=True' to all spawn() calls using logfile=. Append to log
62 when unpacking tarball.
63
64 28 Mar 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
65 rewrote filesystem_tools. looks like it works so ripping out all the old
66 filesystem_tools code.
67
68 26 Mar 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
69 Changed the print statements to logging in the partitioning BE code.
70 the logger may need to be imported to the x86archtemplate. unknown yet.
71 Added the finishing_cleanup function.
72 added a fix to the logger from BenUrban
73
74 25 Mar 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
75 changed InstallProfile to remove is_uri check on kernel, stage, and portage
76 URIs. The blank uri check has been commented out.
77 ripped out error checking of set_services. this is done by _add_to_runlevel.
78
79 25 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
80 set_stage_tarball_uri() doesn't raise an exception on a blank string.
81
82 24 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
83 GRP-ish quickpkg code pulls PKGDIR and PORTAGE_TMPDIR from make.conf info in
84 the install profile if available. Commented out spawn() debugging prints
85
86 23 Mar 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
87 small changes to setup_network_post. moved adding to runlevel of net.x to
88 after the device gets symlinked. added domainname runlevel command.
89
90 23 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
91 minor fix (hopefully) to livecd-kernel code. Removed call to mkvardb in
92 livecd-kernel code as it's now done by catalyst. Switch _emerge() call to
93 spawn() call in livecd-kernel code to pass environment variables.
94 livecd-kernel code pulls PKGDIR and PORTAGE_TMPDIR from make.conf info in
95 the install profile if available.
96
97 23 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
98 Added code to build_kernel() and emerge_kernel_sources() in ArchTemplate
99 to handle installing the livecd kernel into the new system.
100
101 22 Mar 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
102 should emerge hotplug and coldplug before adding them to runlevel.
103
104 21 Mar 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
105 took chroot out of grub_install command.
106
107 21 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
108 Changed chroot wrapper code in spawn() to write the wrapper the python way
109 instead of the bash way to avoid quote conflicts. Added
110 'logfile=self._compile_logfile' to a number of spawn() calls. Added new
111 hash_password() function to GLIUtility. Remove command to 'rm /tmp/spawn.sh'
112 as it breaks the piping.
113
114 20 Mar 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
115 Added the amd64ArchitectureTemplate, mostly a copy of x86 without lilo.
116
117 20 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
118 Added _get_packages_to_emerge() to GLIArchitectureTemplate and calls in
119 stage1() and stage2(). Added 'origminor' parameter to GLIStorageDevice and
120 GLIInstallProfile.
121
122 19 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
123 Fixed a couple bugs in add_netmount() in GLIInstallProfile. spawn() outputs
124 to the actual tty8 with display_on_tty8 flag. Compile output logfile moved
125 into /mnt/gentoo in prepare_chroot()
126
127 18 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
128 Add sigunmask.c contributed by d_m (on freenode) to counteract python's
129 retarted behavior regarding threads and signals. Add code to convert MB/%/*
130 to start/end sectors
131
132 17 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
133 Add 2>&1 to cmd in spawn()
134
135 16 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
136 Modified GLIUtility.exitsuccess() to work with return value from
137 commands.getstatusoutput instead of os.waitpid(). spawn() automatically
138 creates wrapper script for commands run inside chroot so multiple commands
139 and redirection can be used. Change exitsuccess() back. Added 'chmod a+x'
140 for the generated script from spawn()
141
142 16 Mar 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
143 Removed default values for stage tarball URI and portage tree URI from
144 InstallProfile. These should be set by the FEs. also added services step to
145 ArchTemplate and coldplug/hotplug runlevels to the genkernel step.
146 Possibly fixed CC DHCP bug with -n. (thx agaffney)
147
148 14 Mar 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
149 Small fix for setting the default gateway. Also added feature to dialogfe.
150
151 7 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
152 Switched spawn() over to commands.getstatusoutput() instead of fork/waitpid
153
154 1 Mar 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
155 Fixed a bunch of true -> True typos. lots of em
156 only write new resolv.conf if there are dns servers listed.
157
158 1 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
159 Commented out 'display_on_tty8=True' in start_portmap()
160
161 18 Feb 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
162 added progress bar to dialogfe and fix logger bug in ArchTemplate.
163
164 18 Feb 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
165 Created GLISayWhat module. Renamed GLISayWhat to GLILocalization. Moved
166 lang parameter to __init__()
167
168 10 Feb 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
169 updates to TODO list.
170
171 6 Feb 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
172 Initial code for quickpkg GRP support. Fix loop to grab packages from
173 'emerge -p blah'
174
175 6 Feb 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
176 check for dhcp in the network stuff and emerge it if it is.
177 added quickpkg to TODO list
178
179 5 Feb 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
180 Changed the raising of 'warning' exceptions to a simple log of the error
181 so that the installer can continue.
182
183 3 Feb 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
184 Some big changes. First, changed most output to display_on_tty8.
185 Second, added log lines to all templates. Some smaller fixes such as typos.
186 Also did some cleanups of old commented lines.
187
188 1 Feb 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
189 Changed tty8 output to a fifo. Minor GLIStorageDevice fix thanks to BenUrban.
190 Undo change with fix. Escaping fix in GLIStorageDevice.py
191
192 31 Jan 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
193 more updates to TODO list. hopefully we'll soon start removing items instead
194 of adding them.
195
196 29 Jan 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
197 Changed the way GLIStorageDevice.get_max_sectors_for_resize() works
198
199 27 Jan 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
200 updated TODO list. (again)
201
202 25 Jan 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
203 changed output of portmap start to display_on_tty8.
204 fixed bootloader for udev and multiple kernels
205 fixed custom kernel config (again)
206
207 22 Jan 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
208 changed default value of CC._enable_ssh to True because this is smart.
209 added code to allow custom kernel .config. may be unstable and break. sorry.
210
211 21 Jan 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
212 partition() now waits until after it checks for partition flags before delete
213 the partitions :P
214
215 19 Jan 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
216 Updated TODO. swapon failure it temporarily not an error. swapon is an error
217 again. is_uri() check only performed on portage_tree_snapshot_uri if it isn't
218 blank.
219
220 19 Jan 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
221 Various fixes related to the add_users function. Still not yet finished.
222 Added things to the TODO list. Lets start using that!
223
224 18 Jan 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
225 Added code to x86Template to format newly created partitions. Also added
226 some error checking code. GLIStorageDevice passes 'minor' with data to
227 InstallProfile. Added partition() call back in ArchTemplate. Fixed NFS
228 mounting code.
229
230 18 Jan 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
231 Took out unnecessary setting of random livecd root password. the cd already
232 sets it randomly.
233
234 15 Jan 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
235 Took out an unneeded step from CC's run()
236
237 15 Jan 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
238 Attempt at detecting and adding windows partitions to lilo.
239
240 14 Jan 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
241 Added lilo code and cleaned up lilo code. also do_partitioning renamed to
242 partition. fixed misc exit_status => exitstatus typo.
243
244 11 Jan 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
245 Added basic code for resizing filesystems with pyparted. Fixed code for
246 resizing ntfs and ext2/3.
247
248 10 Jan 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
249 Fixed partition() in x86Template so that it scans through logicals and deletes
250 before deleting containing extended partition. Also clears partition table to
251 be safe before third pass.
252
253 08 Jan 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
254 Added mount_network_shares. not able to test it from this computer.
255 will test when i get back to school.
256 also added start_portmap to the client_controller as an always-do.
257 agaffney says this is needed for NFS mounts to work.
258
259 08 Jan 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
260 Partial rewrite of partitioning code in x86Template. No longer shells out to
261 parted to perform actions, now uses all pyparted calls. Code "works" in a
262 test, but still needs lots of TLC. Also modified tests/install.py to work
263 with x86Template and GLIClientConfiguration.
264
265 07 Jan 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
266 Initial move of partitioning code from ArchTemplate to x86Template.
267
268 07 Jan 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
269 Added grp_install and services to InstallProfile. forgot about the set_root_password
270
271 07 Jan 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
272 Fixed a few more edit_configs. fixed a chroot multicommand bug thanks to agaffney.
273 Test Install ran very well (skipping partitioning).
274
275 05 Jan 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
276 My mid-day update. rewrote mount_local_partitions for order of mounting. fixed prepare_chroot
277 rewrote configure_fstab and install_bootloader for new partition format. fixed a few _edit_configs.
278 some may still have eluded me.
279
280 05 Jan 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
281 Overhauled the entire ArchTemplate and did a lot of other misc fixes in order to test it.
282 Just finished mount_local_partitions in GLIArchitectureTemplate
283
284 05 Jan 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
285 Added get_num_sectors() to GLIStorageDevice.
286
287 04 Jan 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
288 GLIStorageDevice now tracks partition boundaries in sectors instead of cylinders.
289 Also now ignores <=100 sectors for free space. Removed remaining depends stuff
290 from GLIInstallProfile.
291
292 20 Dec 2004; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
293 GLIStorageDevice returns "unknown" instead of "" for get_type()
294
295 19 Dec 2004; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
296 Added get_extended_partition() to GLIStorageDevice. Rewrote get_logicals() to
297 actually work. Commented out resizability checking code for speed.
298
299 17 Dec 2004; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
300 Switched to using dumpe2fs to determine free space left in ext2/3 filesystem in
301 GLIStorageDevice at the suggestion of plors
302
303 10 Dec 2004; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
304 Added a function to GLIUtility to pull a value from a make.conf-style config
305 file. Minor type fix to GLIInstallProfile.py
306
307 09 Dec 2004; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
308 Added code in GLIArchitectureTemplate.py to write netmounts into fstab. Separated
309 network mounts from partition data structure in GLIInstallProfile
310
311 27 Nov 2004; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
312 Changed the way GLIStorageDevice.py determines the amount a ext2/3 filesystem
313 can be resized.
314
315 27 Oct 2004; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
316 Added some of the final functions to GLIInstallTemplate.
317 Yes this project is still active despite rare use of the Changelog!
318
319 11 Jun 2004; Nathaniel McCallum <npmccallum@gentoo.org>
320 Added the GLIPartitionTools.py file. This is a temporary insertion of
321 partitioning tools that will eventually go into their own package.
322
323 27 Mar 2004; Nathaniel McCallum <npmccallum@gentoo.org>
324 Added InstallProfileTODO.txt. Added GLIClientConfiguration.py (contains run-time
325 for the program). Added __init__(install_profile, client_configuration) to
326 GLI.InstallProfile. This sets install_profile and client_configuration once so as
327 to avoid constantly passing stuff every time we call a method.
328
329 26 Mar 2004; Nathaniel McCallum <npmccallum@gentoo.org>
330
331 Added another private method to GLI.InstallTemplate. _edit_config() modifies config
332 files without messing up all the other stuff in them. This will be used for making
333 changes to make.conf, rc.conf, /etc/conf.d/net, etc...
334
335 25 Mar 2004; Nathaniel McCallum <npmccallum@gentoo.org>
336
337 Added GLI.InstallTemplate framework. This is not yet functional. However, it does
338 have a few basic things. I added two private methods. One is _depends(). This
339 will be used for dependency checking (ie. unpacking a tarball requires that
340 partitioning has been done). The other is _exec_in_chroot(). This is the exact
341 same syntax as os.system(), however, instead of being run in the liveCD
342 environment, it runs in the chroot. This requires a bit of fork() magic, so I
343 isolated the code. Hope to work more this week to get this class formed...
344
345 14 Feb 2004; Eric Sammer <esammer@gentoo.org>
346
347 Added SAX parsing. Made GLI.InstallProfile a subclass of xml.sax.ContentHandler for
348 obvious reasons. Switched kernel_modules and users to be lists instead of tuples
349 to allow for easier modification (mutable, rather than immutable objects). Updated
350 existing pydoc and added more. Implemented body of GLI.InstallProfile.parse().
351 Cleaned file format of GLI.py a bit. Fixed all accessors to use self references.
352 Added initial unit test code.
353
354 9 Feb 2004; Eric Sammer <esammer@gentoo.org>
355
356 Added initial changelog. Setting up the basic structure of the CVS repository
357 for the project. Added the UML class diagram in docs. Added a skeletal GLI
358 python module. Added misc files such news, authors, etc.
