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