6
7 17 Apr 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
8 Reverted change to ArchTemplate and added support for commented line in old
9 code.
10
11 16 Apr 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
12 Changed _edit_config() to modify value in-place instead of commenting out and
13 adding the new value to the end of the file.
14
15 15 Apr 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
16 Back. Did the docuementation thang for ArchTemplate and ClientConfiguration.
17 Also updated TODO list.
18
19 14 Apr 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
20 Use blackace's one-liner to add comments for all function for use with
21 pythondoc.
22
23 13 Apr 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
24 Moved 'end >= device_sectors' check out of loop to check for next partition's
25 start point (thanks to Marco Djukic). Fix >4 primary partitions on non-x86.
26 Partitioning code now tracks start/end of extended for placing logicals. End
27 point of logical is now adjusted along with start.
28
29 11 Apr 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
30 Finish overhaul of backend partitioning code. Fixed all bugs that stood in
31 the way of partitioning from a blank disk. Add int() around access to minor
32 key in partition information due to new partition code leaving them as float.
33
34 10 Apr 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
35 tidy_partitions() function in GLIStorageDevice. Tweaks to tidy code
36
37 9 Apr 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
38 Major GLIStorageDevice overhaul...all MB now instead of sectors.
39
40 8 Apr 2005; Scott Myron <samyron@gentoo.org>
41 Added support for DHCP options and MAC addresses in the InstallProfile.
42
43 3 Apr 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
44 Changed mountopts check to work for blank and whitespace. Pipe emerge through
45 sed to properly strip out junk.
46
47 2 Apr 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
48 fixed the way set_timezone works. added hotplug/coldplug for livecd-kernel
49 added --emptytree to stage2. fixed ethx not being added to runlevel defalt.
50
51 31 Mar 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
52 Fixed indent problem in GLICController
53
54 30 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
55 Check for disklabel type "loop" and use the device name without a minor.
56
57 29 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
58 Remove /tmp/compile_output.log and /var/log/install.log when install is
59 complete. Added code to (hopefully) keep 2nd thread running after install.
60 Patch from zahna for extra arguments to the kernel. Patch from zahna to add
61 get_eth_info() function. Remove most of content in amd64ArchTemplate and
62 make it inherit from x86Archtemplate. kernel_args -> bootloader_kernel_args
63
64 28 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
65 Added 'append_log=True' to all spawn() calls using logfile=. Append to log
66 when unpacking tarball.
67
68 28 Mar 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
69 rewrote filesystem_tools. looks like it works so ripping out all the old
70 filesystem_tools code.
71
72 26 Mar 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
73 Changed the print statements to logging in the partitioning BE code.
74 the logger may need to be imported to the x86archtemplate. unknown yet.
75 Added the finishing_cleanup function.
76 added a fix to the logger from BenUrban
77
78 25 Mar 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
79 changed InstallProfile to remove is_uri check on kernel, stage, and portage
80 URIs. The blank uri check has been commented out.
81 ripped out error checking of set_services. this is done by _add_to_runlevel.
82
83 25 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
84 set_stage_tarball_uri() doesn't raise an exception on a blank string.
85
86 24 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
87 GRP-ish quickpkg code pulls PKGDIR and PORTAGE_TMPDIR from make.conf info in
88 the install profile if available. Commented out spawn() debugging prints
89
90 23 Mar 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
91 small changes to setup_network_post. moved adding to runlevel of net.x to
92 after the device gets symlinked. added domainname runlevel command.
93
94 23 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
95 minor fix (hopefully) to livecd-kernel code. Removed call to mkvardb in
96 livecd-kernel code as it's now done by catalyst. Switch _emerge() call to
97 spawn() call in livecd-kernel code to pass environment variables.
98 livecd-kernel code pulls PKGDIR and PORTAGE_TMPDIR from make.conf info in
99 the install profile if available.
100
101 23 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
102 Added code to build_kernel() and emerge_kernel_sources() in ArchTemplate
103 to handle installing the livecd kernel into the new system.
104
105 22 Mar 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
106 should emerge hotplug and coldplug before adding them to runlevel.
107
108 21 Mar 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
109 took chroot out of grub_install command.
110
111 21 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
112 Changed chroot wrapper code in spawn() to write the wrapper the python way
113 instead of the bash way to avoid quote conflicts. Added
114 'logfile=self._compile_logfile' to a number of spawn() calls. Added new
115 hash_password() function to GLIUtility. Remove command to 'rm /tmp/spawn.sh'
116 as it breaks the piping.
117
118 20 Mar 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
119 Added the amd64ArchitectureTemplate, mostly a copy of x86 without lilo.
120
121 20 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
122 Added _get_packages_to_emerge() to GLIArchitectureTemplate and calls in
123 stage1() and stage2(). Added 'origminor' parameter to GLIStorageDevice and
124 GLIInstallProfile.
125
126 19 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
127 Fixed a couple bugs in add_netmount() in GLIInstallProfile. spawn() outputs
128 to the actual tty8 with display_on_tty8 flag. Compile output logfile moved
129 into /mnt/gentoo in prepare_chroot()
130
131 18 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
132 Add sigunmask.c contributed by d_m (on freenode) to counteract python's
133 retarted behavior regarding threads and signals. Add code to convert MB/%/*
134 to start/end sectors
135
136 17 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
137 Add 2>&1 to cmd in spawn()
138
139 16 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
140 Modified GLIUtility.exitsuccess() to work with return value from
141 commands.getstatusoutput instead of os.waitpid(). spawn() automatically
142 creates wrapper script for commands run inside chroot so multiple commands
143 and redirection can be used. Change exitsuccess() back. Added 'chmod a+x'
144 for the generated script from spawn()
145
146 16 Mar 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
147 Removed default values for stage tarball URI and portage tree URI from
148 InstallProfile. These should be set by the FEs. also added services step to
149 ArchTemplate and coldplug/hotplug runlevels to the genkernel step.
150 Possibly fixed CC DHCP bug with -n. (thx agaffney)
151
152 14 Mar 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
153 Small fix for setting the default gateway. Also added feature to dialogfe.
154
155 7 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
156 Switched spawn() over to commands.getstatusoutput() instead of fork/waitpid
157
158 1 Mar 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
159 Fixed a bunch of true -> True typos. lots of em
160 only write new resolv.conf if there are dns servers listed.
161
162 1 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
163 Commented out 'display_on_tty8=True' in start_portmap()
164
165 18 Feb 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
166 added progress bar to dialogfe and fix logger bug in ArchTemplate.
167
168 18 Feb 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
169 Created GLISayWhat module. Renamed GLISayWhat to GLILocalization. Moved
170 lang parameter to __init__()
171
172 10 Feb 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
173 updates to TODO list.
174
175 6 Feb 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
176 Initial code for quickpkg GRP support. Fix loop to grab packages from
177 'emerge -p blah'
178
179 6 Feb 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
180 check for dhcp in the network stuff and emerge it if it is.
181 added quickpkg to TODO list
182
183 5 Feb 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
184 Changed the raising of 'warning' exceptions to a simple log of the error
185 so that the installer can continue.
186
187 3 Feb 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
188 Some big changes. First, changed most output to display_on_tty8.
189 Second, added log lines to all templates. Some smaller fixes such as typos.
190 Also did some cleanups of old commented lines.
191
192 1 Feb 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
193 Changed tty8 output to a fifo. Minor GLIStorageDevice fix thanks to BenUrban.
194 Undo change with fix. Escaping fix in GLIStorageDevice.py
195
196 31 Jan 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
197 more updates to TODO list. hopefully we'll soon start removing items instead
198 of adding them.
199
200 29 Jan 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
201 Changed the way GLIStorageDevice.get_max_sectors_for_resize() works
202
203 27 Jan 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
204 updated TODO list. (again)
205
206 25 Jan 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
207 changed output of portmap start to display_on_tty8.
208 fixed bootloader for udev and multiple kernels
209 fixed custom kernel config (again)
210
211 22 Jan 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
212 changed default value of CC._enable_ssh to True because this is smart.
213 added code to allow custom kernel .config. may be unstable and break. sorry.
214
215 21 Jan 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
216 partition() now waits until after it checks for partition flags before delete
217 the partitions :P
218
219 19 Jan 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
220 Updated TODO. swapon failure it temporarily not an error. swapon is an error
221 again. is_uri() check only performed on portage_tree_snapshot_uri if it isn't
222 blank.
223
224 19 Jan 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
225 Various fixes related to the add_users function. Still not yet finished.
226 Added things to the TODO list. Lets start using that!
227
228 18 Jan 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
229 Added code to x86Template to format newly created partitions. Also added
230 some error checking code. GLIStorageDevice passes 'minor' with data to
231 InstallProfile. Added partition() call back in ArchTemplate. Fixed NFS
232 mounting code.
233
234 18 Jan 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
235 Took out unnecessary setting of random livecd root password. the cd already
236 sets it randomly.
237
238 15 Jan 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
239 Took out an unneeded step from CC's run()
240
241 15 Jan 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
242 Attempt at detecting and adding windows partitions to lilo.
243
244 14 Jan 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
245 Added lilo code and cleaned up lilo code. also do_partitioning renamed to
246 partition. fixed misc exit_status => exitstatus typo.
247
248 11 Jan 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
249 Added basic code for resizing filesystems with pyparted. Fixed code for
250 resizing ntfs and ext2/3.
251
252 10 Jan 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
253 Fixed partition() in x86Template so that it scans through logicals and deletes
254 before deleting containing extended partition. Also clears partition table to
255 be safe before third pass.
256
257 08 Jan 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
258 Added mount_network_shares. not able to test it from this computer.
259 will test when i get back to school.
260 also added start_portmap to the client_controller as an always-do.
261 agaffney says this is needed for NFS mounts to work.
262
263 08 Jan 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
264 Partial rewrite of partitioning code in x86Template. No longer shells out to
265 parted to perform actions, now uses all pyparted calls. Code "works" in a
266 test, but still needs lots of TLC. Also modified tests/install.py to work
267 with x86Template and GLIClientConfiguration.
268
269 07 Jan 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
270 Initial move of partitioning code from ArchTemplate to x86Template.
271
272 07 Jan 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
273 Added grp_install and services to InstallProfile. forgot about the set_root_password
274
275 07 Jan 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
276 Fixed a few more edit_configs. fixed a chroot multicommand bug thanks to agaffney.
277 Test Install ran very well (skipping partitioning).
278
279 05 Jan 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
280 My mid-day update. rewrote mount_local_partitions for order of mounting. fixed prepare_chroot
281 rewrote configure_fstab and install_bootloader for new partition format. fixed a few _edit_configs.
282 some may still have eluded me.
283
284 05 Jan 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
285 Overhauled the entire ArchTemplate and did a lot of other misc fixes in order to test it.
286 Just finished mount_local_partitions in GLIArchitectureTemplate
287
288 05 Jan 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
289 Added get_num_sectors() to GLIStorageDevice.
290
291 04 Jan 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
292 GLIStorageDevice now tracks partition boundaries in sectors instead of cylinders.
293 Also now ignores <=100 sectors for free space. Removed remaining depends stuff
294 from GLIInstallProfile.
295
296 20 Dec 2004; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
297 GLIStorageDevice returns "unknown" instead of "" for get_type()
298
299 19 Dec 2004; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
300 Added get_extended_partition() to GLIStorageDevice. Rewrote get_logicals() to
301 actually work. Commented out resizability checking code for speed.
302
303 17 Dec 2004; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
304 Switched to using dumpe2fs to determine free space left in ext2/3 filesystem in
305 GLIStorageDevice at the suggestion of plors
306
307 10 Dec 2004; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
308 Added a function to GLIUtility to pull a value from a make.conf-style config
309 file. Minor type fix to GLIInstallProfile.py
310
311 09 Dec 2004; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
312 Added code in GLIArchitectureTemplate.py to write netmounts into fstab. Separated
313 network mounts from partition data structure in GLIInstallProfile
314
315 27 Nov 2004; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
316 Changed the way GLIStorageDevice.py determines the amount a ext2/3 filesystem
317 can be resized.
318
319 27 Oct 2004; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
320 Added some of the final functions to GLIInstallTemplate.
321 Yes this project is still active despite rare use of the Changelog!
322
323 11 Jun 2004; Nathaniel McCallum <npmccallum@gentoo.org>
324 Added the GLIPartitionTools.py file. This is a temporary insertion of
325 partitioning tools that will eventually go into their own package.
326
327 27 Mar 2004; Nathaniel McCallum <npmccallum@gentoo.org>
328 Added InstallProfileTODO.txt. Added GLIClientConfiguration.py (contains run-time
329 for the program). Added __init__(install_profile, client_configuration) to
330 GLI.InstallProfile. This sets install_profile and client_configuration once so as
331 to avoid constantly passing stuff every time we call a method.
332
333 26 Mar 2004; Nathaniel McCallum <npmccallum@gentoo.org>
334
335 Added another private method to GLI.InstallTemplate. _edit_config() modifies config
336 files without messing up all the other stuff in them. This will be used for making
337 changes to make.conf, rc.conf, /etc/conf.d/net, etc...
338
339 25 Mar 2004; Nathaniel McCallum <npmccallum@gentoo.org>
340
341 Added GLI.InstallTemplate framework. This is not yet functional. However, it does
342 have a few basic things. I added two private methods. One is _depends(). This
343 will be used for dependency checking (ie. unpacking a tarball requires that
344 partitioning has been done). The other is _exec_in_chroot(). This is the exact
345 same syntax as os.system(), however, instead of being run in the liveCD
346 environment, it runs in the chroot. This requires a bit of fork() magic, so I
347 isolated the code. Hope to work more this week to get this class formed...
348
349 14 Feb 2004; Eric Sammer <esammer@gentoo.org>
350
351 Added SAX parsing. Made GLI.InstallProfile a subclass of xml.sax.ContentHandler for
352 obvious reasons. Switched kernel_modules and users to be lists instead of tuples
353 to allow for easier modification (mutable, rather than immutable objects). Updated
354 existing pydoc and added more. Implemented body of GLI.InstallProfile.parse().
355 Cleaned file format of GLI.py a bit. Fixed all accessors to use self references.
356 Added initial unit test code.
357
358 9 Feb 2004; Eric Sammer <esammer@gentoo.org>
359
360 Added initial changelog. Setting up the basic structure of the CVS repository
361 for the project. Added the UML class diagram in docs. Added a skeletal GLI
362 python module. Added misc files such news, authors, etc.
