8 Fixed encapsulation issues in GLIClientController (bug #90141)
9
10 22 Apr 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
11 Update resizing code in GLIStorageDevice
12
13 17 Apr 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
14 Update AUTHORS, NEWS, TODO. Added documentation to GLILogger.
15
16 17 Apr 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
17 Reverted change to ArchTemplate and added support for commented line in old
18 code.
19
20 16 Apr 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
21 Changed _edit_config() to modify value in-place instead of commenting out and
22 adding the new value to the end of the file.
23
24 15 Apr 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
25 Back. Did the docuementation thang for ArchTemplate and ClientConfiguration.
26 Also updated TODO list.
27
28 14 Apr 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
29 Use blackace's one-liner to add comments for all function for use with
30 pythondoc.
31
32 13 Apr 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
33 Moved 'end >= device_sectors' check out of loop to check for next partition's
34 start point (thanks to Marco Djukic). Fix >4 primary partitions on non-x86.
35 Partitioning code now tracks start/end of extended for placing logicals. End
36 point of logical is now adjusted along with start.
37
38 11 Apr 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
39 Finish overhaul of backend partitioning code. Fixed all bugs that stood in
40 the way of partitioning from a blank disk. Add int() around access to minor
41 key in partition information due to new partition code leaving them as float.
42
43 10 Apr 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
44 tidy_partitions() function in GLIStorageDevice. Tweaks to tidy code
45
46 9 Apr 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
47 Major GLIStorageDevice overhaul...all MB now instead of sectors.
48
49 8 Apr 2005; Scott Myron <samyron@gentoo.org>
50 Added support for DHCP options and MAC addresses in the InstallProfile.
51
52 3 Apr 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
53 Changed mountopts check to work for blank and whitespace. Pipe emerge through
54 sed to properly strip out junk.
55
56 2 Apr 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
57 fixed the way set_timezone works. added hotplug/coldplug for livecd-kernel
58 added --emptytree to stage2. fixed ethx not being added to runlevel defalt.
59
60 31 Mar 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
61 Fixed indent problem in GLICController
62
63 30 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
64 Check for disklabel type "loop" and use the device name without a minor.
65
66 29 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
67 Remove /tmp/compile_output.log and /var/log/install.log when install is
68 complete. Added code to (hopefully) keep 2nd thread running after install.
69 Patch from zahna for extra arguments to the kernel. Patch from zahna to add
70 get_eth_info() function. Remove most of content in amd64ArchTemplate and
71 make it inherit from x86Archtemplate. kernel_args -> bootloader_kernel_args
72
73 28 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
74 Added 'append_log=True' to all spawn() calls using logfile=. Append to log
75 when unpacking tarball.
76
77 28 Mar 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
78 rewrote filesystem_tools. looks like it works so ripping out all the old
79 filesystem_tools code.
80
81 26 Mar 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
82 Changed the print statements to logging in the partitioning BE code.
83 the logger may need to be imported to the x86archtemplate. unknown yet.
84 Added the finishing_cleanup function.
85 added a fix to the logger from BenUrban
86
87 25 Mar 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
88 changed InstallProfile to remove is_uri check on kernel, stage, and portage
89 URIs. The blank uri check has been commented out.
90 ripped out error checking of set_services. this is done by _add_to_runlevel.
91
92 25 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
93 set_stage_tarball_uri() doesn't raise an exception on a blank string.
94
95 24 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
96 GRP-ish quickpkg code pulls PKGDIR and PORTAGE_TMPDIR from make.conf info in
97 the install profile if available. Commented out spawn() debugging prints
98
99 23 Mar 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
100 small changes to setup_network_post. moved adding to runlevel of net.x to
101 after the device gets symlinked. added domainname runlevel command.
102
103 23 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
104 minor fix (hopefully) to livecd-kernel code. Removed call to mkvardb in
105 livecd-kernel code as it's now done by catalyst. Switch _emerge() call to
106 spawn() call in livecd-kernel code to pass environment variables.
107 livecd-kernel code pulls PKGDIR and PORTAGE_TMPDIR from make.conf info in
108 the install profile if available.
109
110 23 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
111 Added code to build_kernel() and emerge_kernel_sources() in ArchTemplate
112 to handle installing the livecd kernel into the new system.
113
114 22 Mar 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
115 should emerge hotplug and coldplug before adding them to runlevel.
116
117 21 Mar 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
118 took chroot out of grub_install command.
119
120 21 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
121 Changed chroot wrapper code in spawn() to write the wrapper the python way
122 instead of the bash way to avoid quote conflicts. Added
123 'logfile=self._compile_logfile' to a number of spawn() calls. Added new
124 hash_password() function to GLIUtility. Remove command to 'rm /tmp/spawn.sh'
125 as it breaks the piping.
126
127 20 Mar 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
128 Added the amd64ArchitectureTemplate, mostly a copy of x86 without lilo.
129
130 20 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
131 Added _get_packages_to_emerge() to GLIArchitectureTemplate and calls in
132 stage1() and stage2(). Added 'origminor' parameter to GLIStorageDevice and
133 GLIInstallProfile.
134
135 19 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
136 Fixed a couple bugs in add_netmount() in GLIInstallProfile. spawn() outputs
137 to the actual tty8 with display_on_tty8 flag. Compile output logfile moved
138 into /mnt/gentoo in prepare_chroot()
139
140 18 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
141 Add sigunmask.c contributed by d_m (on freenode) to counteract python's
142 retarted behavior regarding threads and signals. Add code to convert MB/%/*
143 to start/end sectors
144
145 17 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
146 Add 2>&1 to cmd in spawn()
147
148 16 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
149 Modified GLIUtility.exitsuccess() to work with return value from
150 commands.getstatusoutput instead of os.waitpid(). spawn() automatically
151 creates wrapper script for commands run inside chroot so multiple commands
152 and redirection can be used. Change exitsuccess() back. Added 'chmod a+x'
153 for the generated script from spawn()
154
155 16 Mar 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
156 Removed default values for stage tarball URI and portage tree URI from
157 InstallProfile. These should be set by the FEs. also added services step to
158 ArchTemplate and coldplug/hotplug runlevels to the genkernel step.
159 Possibly fixed CC DHCP bug with -n. (thx agaffney)
160
161 14 Mar 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
162 Small fix for setting the default gateway. Also added feature to dialogfe.
163
164 7 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
165 Switched spawn() over to commands.getstatusoutput() instead of fork/waitpid
166
167 1 Mar 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
168 Fixed a bunch of true -> True typos. lots of em
169 only write new resolv.conf if there are dns servers listed.
170
171 1 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
172 Commented out 'display_on_tty8=True' in start_portmap()
173
174 18 Feb 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
175 added progress bar to dialogfe and fix logger bug in ArchTemplate.
176
177 18 Feb 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
178 Created GLISayWhat module. Renamed GLISayWhat to GLILocalization. Moved
179 lang parameter to __init__()
180
181 10 Feb 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
182 updates to TODO list.
183
184 6 Feb 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
185 Initial code for quickpkg GRP support. Fix loop to grab packages from
186 'emerge -p blah'
187
188 6 Feb 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
189 check for dhcp in the network stuff and emerge it if it is.
190 added quickpkg to TODO list
191
192 5 Feb 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
193 Changed the raising of 'warning' exceptions to a simple log of the error
194 so that the installer can continue.
195
196 3 Feb 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
197 Some big changes. First, changed most output to display_on_tty8.
198 Second, added log lines to all templates. Some smaller fixes such as typos.
199 Also did some cleanups of old commented lines.
200
201 1 Feb 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
202 Changed tty8 output to a fifo. Minor GLIStorageDevice fix thanks to BenUrban.
203 Undo change with fix. Escaping fix in GLIStorageDevice.py
204
205 31 Jan 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
206 more updates to TODO list. hopefully we'll soon start removing items instead
207 of adding them.
208
209 29 Jan 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
210 Changed the way GLIStorageDevice.get_max_sectors_for_resize() works
211
212 27 Jan 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
213 updated TODO list. (again)
214
215 25 Jan 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
216 changed output of portmap start to display_on_tty8.
217 fixed bootloader for udev and multiple kernels
218 fixed custom kernel config (again)
219
220 22 Jan 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
221 changed default value of CC._enable_ssh to True because this is smart.
222 added code to allow custom kernel .config. may be unstable and break. sorry.
223
224 21 Jan 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
225 partition() now waits until after it checks for partition flags before delete
226 the partitions :P
227
228 19 Jan 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
229 Updated TODO. swapon failure it temporarily not an error. swapon is an error
230 again. is_uri() check only performed on portage_tree_snapshot_uri if it isn't
231 blank.
232
233 19 Jan 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
234 Various fixes related to the add_users function. Still not yet finished.
235 Added things to the TODO list. Lets start using that!
236
237 18 Jan 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
238 Added code to x86Template to format newly created partitions. Also added
239 some error checking code. GLIStorageDevice passes 'minor' with data to
240 InstallProfile. Added partition() call back in ArchTemplate. Fixed NFS
241 mounting code.
242
243 18 Jan 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
244 Took out unnecessary setting of random livecd root password. the cd already
245 sets it randomly.
246
247 15 Jan 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
248 Took out an unneeded step from CC's run()
249
250 15 Jan 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
251 Attempt at detecting and adding windows partitions to lilo.
252
253 14 Jan 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
254 Added lilo code and cleaned up lilo code. also do_partitioning renamed to
255 partition. fixed misc exit_status => exitstatus typo.
256
257 11 Jan 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
258 Added basic code for resizing filesystems with pyparted. Fixed code for
259 resizing ntfs and ext2/3.
260
261 10 Jan 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
262 Fixed partition() in x86Template so that it scans through logicals and deletes
263 before deleting containing extended partition. Also clears partition table to
264 be safe before third pass.
265
266 08 Jan 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
267 Added mount_network_shares. not able to test it from this computer.
268 will test when i get back to school.
269 also added start_portmap to the client_controller as an always-do.
270 agaffney says this is needed for NFS mounts to work.
271
272 08 Jan 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
273 Partial rewrite of partitioning code in x86Template. No longer shells out to
274 parted to perform actions, now uses all pyparted calls. Code "works" in a
275 test, but still needs lots of TLC. Also modified tests/install.py to work
276 with x86Template and GLIClientConfiguration.
277
278 07 Jan 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
279 Initial move of partitioning code from ArchTemplate to x86Template.
280
281 07 Jan 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
282 Added grp_install and services to InstallProfile. forgot about the set_root_password
283
284 07 Jan 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
285 Fixed a few more edit_configs. fixed a chroot multicommand bug thanks to agaffney.
286 Test Install ran very well (skipping partitioning).
287
288 05 Jan 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
289 My mid-day update. rewrote mount_local_partitions for order of mounting. fixed prepare_chroot
290 rewrote configure_fstab and install_bootloader for new partition format. fixed a few _edit_configs.
291 some may still have eluded me.
292
293 05 Jan 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
294 Overhauled the entire ArchTemplate and did a lot of other misc fixes in order to test it.
295 Just finished mount_local_partitions in GLIArchitectureTemplate
296
297 05 Jan 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
298 Added get_num_sectors() to GLIStorageDevice.
299
300 04 Jan 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
301 GLIStorageDevice now tracks partition boundaries in sectors instead of cylinders.
302 Also now ignores <=100 sectors for free space. Removed remaining depends stuff
303 from GLIInstallProfile.
304
305 20 Dec 2004; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
306 GLIStorageDevice returns "unknown" instead of "" for get_type()
307
308 19 Dec 2004; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
309 Added get_extended_partition() to GLIStorageDevice. Rewrote get_logicals() to
310 actually work. Commented out resizability checking code for speed.
311
312 17 Dec 2004; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
313 Switched to using dumpe2fs to determine free space left in ext2/3 filesystem in
314 GLIStorageDevice at the suggestion of plors
315
316 10 Dec 2004; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
317 Added a function to GLIUtility to pull a value from a make.conf-style config
318 file. Minor type fix to GLIInstallProfile.py
319
320 09 Dec 2004; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
321 Added code in GLIArchitectureTemplate.py to write netmounts into fstab. Separated
322 network mounts from partition data structure in GLIInstallProfile
323
324 27 Nov 2004; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
325 Changed the way GLIStorageDevice.py determines the amount a ext2/3 filesystem
326 can be resized.
327
328 27 Oct 2004; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
329 Added some of the final functions to GLIInstallTemplate.
330 Yes this project is still active despite rare use of the Changelog!
331
332 11 Jun 2004; Nathaniel McCallum <npmccallum@gentoo.org>
333 Added the GLIPartitionTools.py file. This is a temporary insertion of
334 partitioning tools that will eventually go into their own package.
335
336 27 Mar 2004; Nathaniel McCallum <npmccallum@gentoo.org>
337 Added InstallProfileTODO.txt. Added GLIClientConfiguration.py (contains run-time
338 for the program). Added __init__(install_profile, client_configuration) to
339 GLI.InstallProfile. This sets install_profile and client_configuration once so as
340 to avoid constantly passing stuff every time we call a method.
341
342 26 Mar 2004; Nathaniel McCallum <npmccallum@gentoo.org>
343
344 Added another private method to GLI.InstallTemplate. _edit_config() modifies config
345 files without messing up all the other stuff in them. This will be used for making
346 changes to make.conf, rc.conf, /etc/conf.d/net, etc...
347
348 25 Mar 2004; Nathaniel McCallum <npmccallum@gentoo.org>
349
350 Added GLI.InstallTemplate framework. This is not yet functional. However, it does
351 have a few basic things. I added two private methods. One is _depends(). This
352 will be used for dependency checking (ie. unpacking a tarball requires that
353 partitioning has been done). The other is _exec_in_chroot(). This is the exact
354 same syntax as os.system(), however, instead of being run in the liveCD
355 environment, it runs in the chroot. This requires a bit of fork() magic, so I
356 isolated the code. Hope to work more this week to get this class formed...
357
358 14 Feb 2004; Eric Sammer <esammer@gentoo.org>
359
360 Added SAX parsing. Made GLI.InstallProfile a subclass of xml.sax.ContentHandler for
361 obvious reasons. Switched kernel_modules and users to be lists instead of tuples
362 to allow for easier modification (mutable, rather than immutable objects). Updated
363 existing pydoc and added more. Implemented body of GLI.InstallProfile.parse().
364 Cleaned file format of GLI.py a bit. Fixed all accessors to use self references.
365 Added initial unit test code.
366
367 9 Feb 2004; Eric Sammer <esammer@gentoo.org>
368
369 Added initial changelog. Setting up the basic structure of the CVS repository
370 for the project. Added the UML class diagram in docs. Added a skeletal GLI
371 python module. Added misc files such news, authors, etc.
