5 *GLI-0.1_alpha (4 Apr 2005)
6
7 17 Apr 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
8 Update AUTHORS, NEWS, TODO. Added documentation to GLILogger.
9
10 17 Apr 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
11 Reverted change to ArchTemplate and added support for commented line in old
12 code.
13
14 16 Apr 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
15 Changed _edit_config() to modify value in-place instead of commenting out and
16 adding the new value to the end of the file.
17
18 15 Apr 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
19 Back. Did the docuementation thang for ArchTemplate and ClientConfiguration.
20 Also updated TODO list.
21
22 14 Apr 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
23 Use blackace's one-liner to add comments for all function for use with
24 pythondoc.
25
26 13 Apr 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
27 Moved 'end >= device_sectors' check out of loop to check for next partition's
28 start point (thanks to Marco Djukic). Fix >4 primary partitions on non-x86.
29 Partitioning code now tracks start/end of extended for placing logicals. End
30 point of logical is now adjusted along with start.
31
32 11 Apr 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
33 Finish overhaul of backend partitioning code. Fixed all bugs that stood in
34 the way of partitioning from a blank disk. Add int() around access to minor
35 key in partition information due to new partition code leaving them as float.
36
37 10 Apr 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
38 tidy_partitions() function in GLIStorageDevice. Tweaks to tidy code
39
40 9 Apr 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
41 Major GLIStorageDevice overhaul...all MB now instead of sectors.
42
43 8 Apr 2005; Scott Myron <samyron@gentoo.org>
44 Added support for DHCP options and MAC addresses in the InstallProfile.
45
46 3 Apr 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
47 Changed mountopts check to work for blank and whitespace. Pipe emerge through
48 sed to properly strip out junk.
49
50 2 Apr 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
51 fixed the way set_timezone works. added hotplug/coldplug for livecd-kernel
52 added --emptytree to stage2. fixed ethx not being added to runlevel defalt.
53
54 31 Mar 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
55 Fixed indent problem in GLICController
56
57 30 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
58 Check for disklabel type "loop" and use the device name without a minor.
59
60 29 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
61 Remove /tmp/compile_output.log and /var/log/install.log when install is
62 complete. Added code to (hopefully) keep 2nd thread running after install.
63 Patch from zahna for extra arguments to the kernel. Patch from zahna to add
64 get_eth_info() function. Remove most of content in amd64ArchTemplate and
65 make it inherit from x86Archtemplate. kernel_args -> bootloader_kernel_args
66
67 28 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
68 Added 'append_log=True' to all spawn() calls using logfile=. Append to log
69 when unpacking tarball.
70
71 28 Mar 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
72 rewrote filesystem_tools. looks like it works so ripping out all the old
73 filesystem_tools code.
74
75 26 Mar 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
76 Changed the print statements to logging in the partitioning BE code.
77 the logger may need to be imported to the x86archtemplate. unknown yet.
78 Added the finishing_cleanup function.
79 added a fix to the logger from BenUrban
80
81 25 Mar 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
82 changed InstallProfile to remove is_uri check on kernel, stage, and portage
83 URIs. The blank uri check has been commented out.
84 ripped out error checking of set_services. this is done by _add_to_runlevel.
85
86 25 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
87 set_stage_tarball_uri() doesn't raise an exception on a blank string.
88
89 24 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
90 GRP-ish quickpkg code pulls PKGDIR and PORTAGE_TMPDIR from make.conf info in
91 the install profile if available. Commented out spawn() debugging prints
92
93 23 Mar 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
94 small changes to setup_network_post. moved adding to runlevel of net.x to
95 after the device gets symlinked. added domainname runlevel command.
96
97 23 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
98 minor fix (hopefully) to livecd-kernel code. Removed call to mkvardb in
99 livecd-kernel code as it's now done by catalyst. Switch _emerge() call to
100 spawn() call in livecd-kernel code to pass environment variables.
101 livecd-kernel code pulls PKGDIR and PORTAGE_TMPDIR from make.conf info in
102 the install profile if available.
103
104 23 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
105 Added code to build_kernel() and emerge_kernel_sources() in ArchTemplate
106 to handle installing the livecd kernel into the new system.
107
108 22 Mar 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
109 should emerge hotplug and coldplug before adding them to runlevel.
110
111 21 Mar 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
112 took chroot out of grub_install command.
113
114 21 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
115 Changed chroot wrapper code in spawn() to write the wrapper the python way
116 instead of the bash way to avoid quote conflicts. Added
117 'logfile=self._compile_logfile' to a number of spawn() calls. Added new
118 hash_password() function to GLIUtility. Remove command to 'rm /tmp/spawn.sh'
119 as it breaks the piping.
120
121 20 Mar 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
122 Added the amd64ArchitectureTemplate, mostly a copy of x86 without lilo.
123
124 20 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
125 Added _get_packages_to_emerge() to GLIArchitectureTemplate and calls in
126 stage1() and stage2(). Added 'origminor' parameter to GLIStorageDevice and
127 GLIInstallProfile.
128
129 19 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
130 Fixed a couple bugs in add_netmount() in GLIInstallProfile. spawn() outputs
131 to the actual tty8 with display_on_tty8 flag. Compile output logfile moved
132 into /mnt/gentoo in prepare_chroot()
133
134 18 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
135 Add sigunmask.c contributed by d_m (on freenode) to counteract python's
136 retarted behavior regarding threads and signals. Add code to convert MB/%/*
137 to start/end sectors
138
139 17 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
140 Add 2>&1 to cmd in spawn()
141
142 16 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
143 Modified GLIUtility.exitsuccess() to work with return value from
144 commands.getstatusoutput instead of os.waitpid(). spawn() automatically
145 creates wrapper script for commands run inside chroot so multiple commands
146 and redirection can be used. Change exitsuccess() back. Added 'chmod a+x'
147 for the generated script from spawn()
148
149 16 Mar 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
150 Removed default values for stage tarball URI and portage tree URI from
151 InstallProfile. These should be set by the FEs. also added services step to
152 ArchTemplate and coldplug/hotplug runlevels to the genkernel step.
153 Possibly fixed CC DHCP bug with -n. (thx agaffney)
154
155 14 Mar 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
156 Small fix for setting the default gateway. Also added feature to dialogfe.
157
158 7 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
159 Switched spawn() over to commands.getstatusoutput() instead of fork/waitpid
160
161 1 Mar 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
162 Fixed a bunch of true -> True typos. lots of em
163 only write new resolv.conf if there are dns servers listed.
164
165 1 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
166 Commented out 'display_on_tty8=True' in start_portmap()
167
168 18 Feb 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
169 added progress bar to dialogfe and fix logger bug in ArchTemplate.
170
171 18 Feb 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
172 Created GLISayWhat module. Renamed GLISayWhat to GLILocalization. Moved
173 lang parameter to __init__()
174
175 10 Feb 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
176 updates to TODO list.
177
178 6 Feb 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
179 Initial code for quickpkg GRP support. Fix loop to grab packages from
180 'emerge -p blah'
181
182 6 Feb 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
183 check for dhcp in the network stuff and emerge it if it is.
184 added quickpkg to TODO list
185
186 5 Feb 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
187 Changed the raising of 'warning' exceptions to a simple log of the error
188 so that the installer can continue.
189
190 3 Feb 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
191 Some big changes. First, changed most output to display_on_tty8.
192 Second, added log lines to all templates. Some smaller fixes such as typos.
193 Also did some cleanups of old commented lines.
194
195 1 Feb 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
196 Changed tty8 output to a fifo. Minor GLIStorageDevice fix thanks to BenUrban.
197 Undo change with fix. Escaping fix in GLIStorageDevice.py
198
199 31 Jan 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
200 more updates to TODO list. hopefully we'll soon start removing items instead
201 of adding them.
202
203 29 Jan 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
204 Changed the way GLIStorageDevice.get_max_sectors_for_resize() works
205
206 27 Jan 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
207 updated TODO list. (again)
208
209 25 Jan 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
210 changed output of portmap start to display_on_tty8.
211 fixed bootloader for udev and multiple kernels
212 fixed custom kernel config (again)
213
214 22 Jan 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
215 changed default value of CC._enable_ssh to True because this is smart.
216 added code to allow custom kernel .config. may be unstable and break. sorry.
217
218 21 Jan 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
219 partition() now waits until after it checks for partition flags before delete
220 the partitions :P
221
222 19 Jan 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
223 Updated TODO. swapon failure it temporarily not an error. swapon is an error
224 again. is_uri() check only performed on portage_tree_snapshot_uri if it isn't
225 blank.
226
227 19 Jan 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
228 Various fixes related to the add_users function. Still not yet finished.
229 Added things to the TODO list. Lets start using that!
230
231 18 Jan 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
232 Added code to x86Template to format newly created partitions. Also added
233 some error checking code. GLIStorageDevice passes 'minor' with data to
234 InstallProfile. Added partition() call back in ArchTemplate. Fixed NFS
235 mounting code.
236
237 18 Jan 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
238 Took out unnecessary setting of random livecd root password. the cd already
239 sets it randomly.
240
241 15 Jan 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
242 Took out an unneeded step from CC's run()
243
244 15 Jan 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
245 Attempt at detecting and adding windows partitions to lilo.
246
247 14 Jan 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
248 Added lilo code and cleaned up lilo code. also do_partitioning renamed to
249 partition. fixed misc exit_status => exitstatus typo.
250
251 11 Jan 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
252 Added basic code for resizing filesystems with pyparted. Fixed code for
253 resizing ntfs and ext2/3.
254
255 10 Jan 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
256 Fixed partition() in x86Template so that it scans through logicals and deletes
257 before deleting containing extended partition. Also clears partition table to
258 be safe before third pass.
259
260 08 Jan 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
261 Added mount_network_shares. not able to test it from this computer.
262 will test when i get back to school.
263 also added start_portmap to the client_controller as an always-do.
264 agaffney says this is needed for NFS mounts to work.
265
266 08 Jan 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
267 Partial rewrite of partitioning code in x86Template. No longer shells out to
268 parted to perform actions, now uses all pyparted calls. Code "works" in a
269 test, but still needs lots of TLC. Also modified tests/install.py to work
270 with x86Template and GLIClientConfiguration.
271
272 07 Jan 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
273 Initial move of partitioning code from ArchTemplate to x86Template.
274
275 07 Jan 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
276 Added grp_install and services to InstallProfile. forgot about the set_root_password
277
278 07 Jan 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
279 Fixed a few more edit_configs. fixed a chroot multicommand bug thanks to agaffney.
280 Test Install ran very well (skipping partitioning).
281
282 05 Jan 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
283 My mid-day update. rewrote mount_local_partitions for order of mounting. fixed prepare_chroot
284 rewrote configure_fstab and install_bootloader for new partition format. fixed a few _edit_configs.
285 some may still have eluded me.
286
287 05 Jan 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
288 Overhauled the entire ArchTemplate and did a lot of other misc fixes in order to test it.
289 Just finished mount_local_partitions in GLIArchitectureTemplate
290
291 05 Jan 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
292 Added get_num_sectors() to GLIStorageDevice.
293
294 04 Jan 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
295 GLIStorageDevice now tracks partition boundaries in sectors instead of cylinders.
296 Also now ignores <=100 sectors for free space. Removed remaining depends stuff
297 from GLIInstallProfile.
298
299 20 Dec 2004; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
300 GLIStorageDevice returns "unknown" instead of "" for get_type()
301
302 19 Dec 2004; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
303 Added get_extended_partition() to GLIStorageDevice. Rewrote get_logicals() to
304 actually work. Commented out resizability checking code for speed.
305
306 17 Dec 2004; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
307 Switched to using dumpe2fs to determine free space left in ext2/3 filesystem in
308 GLIStorageDevice at the suggestion of plors
309
310 10 Dec 2004; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
311 Added a function to GLIUtility to pull a value from a make.conf-style config
312 file. Minor type fix to GLIInstallProfile.py
313
314 09 Dec 2004; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
315 Added code in GLIArchitectureTemplate.py to write netmounts into fstab. Separated
316 network mounts from partition data structure in GLIInstallProfile
317
318 27 Nov 2004; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
319 Changed the way GLIStorageDevice.py determines the amount a ext2/3 filesystem
320 can be resized.
321
322 27 Oct 2004; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
323 Added some of the final functions to GLIInstallTemplate.
324 Yes this project is still active despite rare use of the Changelog!
325
326 11 Jun 2004; Nathaniel McCallum <npmccallum@gentoo.org>
327 Added the GLIPartitionTools.py file. This is a temporary insertion of
328 partitioning tools that will eventually go into their own package.
329
330 27 Mar 2004; Nathaniel McCallum <npmccallum@gentoo.org>
331 Added InstallProfileTODO.txt. Added GLIClientConfiguration.py (contains run-time
332 for the program). Added __init__(install_profile, client_configuration) to
333 GLI.InstallProfile. This sets install_profile and client_configuration once so as
334 to avoid constantly passing stuff every time we call a method.
335
336 26 Mar 2004; Nathaniel McCallum <npmccallum@gentoo.org>
337
338 Added another private method to GLI.InstallTemplate. _edit_config() modifies config
339 files without messing up all the other stuff in them. This will be used for making
340 changes to make.conf, rc.conf, /etc/conf.d/net, etc...
341
342 25 Mar 2004; Nathaniel McCallum <npmccallum@gentoo.org>
343
344 Added GLI.InstallTemplate framework. This is not yet functional. However, it does
345 have a few basic things. I added two private methods. One is _depends(). This
346 will be used for dependency checking (ie. unpacking a tarball requires that
347 partitioning has been done). The other is _exec_in_chroot(). This is the exact
348 same syntax as os.system(), however, instead of being run in the liveCD
349 environment, it runs in the chroot. This requires a bit of fork() magic, so I
350 isolated the code. Hope to work more this week to get this class formed...
351
352 14 Feb 2004; Eric Sammer <esammer@gentoo.org>
353
354 Added SAX parsing. Made GLI.InstallProfile a subclass of xml.sax.ContentHandler for
355 obvious reasons. Switched kernel_modules and users to be lists instead of tuples
356 to allow for easier modification (mutable, rather than immutable objects). Updated
357 existing pydoc and added more. Implemented body of GLI.InstallProfile.parse().
358 Cleaned file format of GLI.py a bit. Fixed all accessors to use self references.
359 Added initial unit test code.
360
361 9 Feb 2004; Eric Sammer <esammer@gentoo.org>
362
363 Added initial changelog. Setting up the basic structure of the CVS repository
364 for the project. Added the UML class diagram in docs. Added a skeletal GLI
365 python module. Added misc files such news, authors, etc.
