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