12
13 27 Apr 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
14 Added post-install script code
15

19 22 Apr 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
20 Update resizing code in GLIStorageDevice
21
22 17 Apr 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
23 Update AUTHORS, NEWS, TODO. Added documentation to GLILogger.
24
25 17 Apr 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
26 Reverted change to ArchTemplate and added support for commented line in old
27 code.
28
29 16 Apr 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
30 Changed _edit_config() to modify value in-place instead of commenting out and
31 adding the new value to the end of the file.
32
33 15 Apr 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
34 Back. Did the docuementation thang for ArchTemplate and ClientConfiguration.
35 Also updated TODO list.
36
37 14 Apr 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
38 Use blackace's one-liner to add comments for all function for use with
39 pythondoc.
40
41 13 Apr 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
42 Moved 'end >= device_sectors' check out of loop to check for next partition's
43 start point (thanks to Marco Djukic). Fix >4 primary partitions on non-x86.
44 Partitioning code now tracks start/end of extended for placing logicals. End
45 point of logical is now adjusted along with start.
46
47 11 Apr 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
48 Finish overhaul of backend partitioning code. Fixed all bugs that stood in
49 the way of partitioning from a blank disk. Add int() around access to minor
50 key in partition information due to new partition code leaving them as float.
51
52 10 Apr 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
53 tidy_partitions() function in GLIStorageDevice. Tweaks to tidy code
54
55 9 Apr 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>

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