18
19 17 Apr 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
20 Update AUTHORS, NEWS, TODO. Added documentation to GLILogger.
21
22 17 Apr 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
23 Reverted change to ArchTemplate and added support for commented line in old
24 code.
25
26 16 Apr 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
27 Changed _edit_config() to modify value in-place instead of commenting out and
28 adding the new value to the end of the file.
29
30 15 Apr 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
31 Back. Did the docuementation thang for ArchTemplate and ClientConfiguration.
32 Also updated TODO list.
33
34 14 Apr 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
35 Use blackace's one-liner to add comments for all function for use with
36 pythondoc.
37
38 13 Apr 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
39 Moved 'end >= device_sectors' check out of loop to check for next partition's
40 start point (thanks to Marco Djukic). Fix >4 primary partitions on non-x86.
41 Partitioning code now tracks start/end of extended for placing logicals. End
42 point of logical is now adjusted along with start.
43
44 11 Apr 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
45 Finish overhaul of backend partitioning code. Fixed all bugs that stood in
46 the way of partitioning from a blank disk. Add int() around access to minor
47 key in partition information due to new partition code leaving them as float.
48
49 10 Apr 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
50 tidy_partitions() function in GLIStorageDevice. Tweaks to tidy code
51
52 9 Apr 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>

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