9 GLIStorageDevice (pointed out by chotchki)
10
11 28 Apr 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
12 Added group-adding code to set_users in ArchTemplate
13
14 27 Apr 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
15 Added post-install script code
16
17 23 Apr 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>

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

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