13
14 28 Apr 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
15 Added group-adding code to set_users in ArchTemplate
16
17 27 Apr 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
18 Added post-install script code
19
20 23 Apr 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
21 Fixed encapsulation issues in GLIClientController (bug #90141)
22
23 22 Apr 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
24 Update resizing code in GLIStorageDevice
25
26 17 Apr 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
27 Update AUTHORS, NEWS, TODO. Added documentation to GLILogger.
28
29 17 Apr 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
30 Reverted change to ArchTemplate and added support for commented line in old
31 code.
32
33 16 Apr 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
34 Changed _edit_config() to modify value in-place instead of commenting out and
35 adding the new value to the end of the file.
36
37 15 Apr 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
38 Back. Did the docuementation thang for ArchTemplate and ClientConfiguration.
39 Also updated TODO list.
40
41 14 Apr 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
42 Use blackace's one-liner to add comments for all function for use with
43 pythondoc.
44
45 13 Apr 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
46 Moved 'end >= device_sectors' check out of loop to check for next partition's
47 start point (thanks to Marco Djukic). Fix >4 primary partitions on non-x86.
48 Partitioning code now tracks start/end of extended for placing logicals. End
49 point of logical is now adjusted along with start.
50
51 11 Apr 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
52 Finish overhaul of backend partitioning code. Fixed all bugs that stood in
53 the way of partitioning from a blank disk. Add int() around access to minor
54 key in partition information due to new partition code leaving them as float.
55
56 10 Apr 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
57 tidy_partitions() function in GLIStorageDevice. Tweaks to tidy code
58
59 9 Apr 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>

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