10 29 Apr 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
11 Proxies patch from chotchki (bug #90147). Fixed == instead of = typos in
12 GLIStorageDevice (pointed out by chotchki). Fixed missing int()s. Split
13 'custom' sync option into 'none' and 'snapshot'.
14
15 28 Apr 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
16 Added group-adding code to set_users in ArchTemplate
17
18 27 Apr 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
19 Added post-install script code
20
21 23 Apr 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
22 Fixed encapsulation issues in GLIClientController (bug #90141)
23
24 22 Apr 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
25 Update resizing code in GLIStorageDevice
26
27 17 Apr 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
28 Update AUTHORS, NEWS, TODO. Added documentation to GLILogger.
29
30 17 Apr 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
31 Reverted change to ArchTemplate and added support for commented line in old
32 code.
33
34 16 Apr 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
35 Changed _edit_config() to modify value in-place instead of commenting out and
36 adding the new value to the end of the file.
37
38 15 Apr 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
39 Back. Did the docuementation thang for ArchTemplate and ClientConfiguration.
40 Also updated TODO list.
41
42 14 Apr 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
43 Use blackace's one-liner to add comments for all function for use with
44 pythondoc.
45
46 13 Apr 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
47 Moved 'end >= device_sectors' check out of loop to check for next partition's
48 start point (thanks to Marco Djukic). Fix >4 primary partitions on non-x86.
49 Partitioning code now tracks start/end of extended for placing logicals. End
50 point of logical is now adjusted along with start.
51
52 11 Apr 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
53 Finish overhaul of backend partitioning code. Fixed all bugs that stood in
54 the way of partitioning from a blank disk. Add int() around access to minor
55 key in partition information due to new partition code leaving them as float.
56
57 10 Apr 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
58 tidy_partitions() function in GLIStorageDevice. Tweaks to tidy code
59
60 9 Apr 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>

62
63 8 Apr 2005; Scott Myron <samyron@gentoo.org>
64 Added support for DHCP options and MAC addresses in the InstallProfile.
65
66 3 Apr 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
67 Changed mountopts check to work for blank and whitespace. Pipe emerge through
68 sed to properly strip out junk.
69
70 2 Apr 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
71 fixed the way set_timezone works. added hotplug/coldplug for livecd-kernel
72 added --emptytree to stage2. fixed ethx not being added to runlevel defalt.
73
74 31 Mar 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
75 Fixed indent problem in GLICController
76
77 30 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
78 Check for disklabel type "loop" and use the device name without a minor.
79
80 29 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
81 Remove /tmp/compile_output.log and /var/log/install.log when install is
82 complete. Added code to (hopefully) keep 2nd thread running after install.
83 Patch from zahna for extra arguments to the kernel. Patch from zahna to add
84 get_eth_info() function. Remove most of content in amd64ArchTemplate and
85 make it inherit from x86Archtemplate. kernel_args -> bootloader_kernel_args
86
87 28 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
88 Added 'append_log=True' to all spawn() calls using logfile=. Append to log
89 when unpacking tarball.
90
91 28 Mar 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
92 rewrote filesystem_tools. looks like it works so ripping out all the old
93 filesystem_tools code.
94
95 26 Mar 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
96 Changed the print statements to logging in the partitioning BE code.
97 the logger may need to be imported to the x86archtemplate. unknown yet.
98 Added the finishing_cleanup function.
99 added a fix to the logger from BenUrban
100
101 25 Mar 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
102 changed InstallProfile to remove is_uri check on kernel, stage, and portage
103 URIs. The blank uri check has been commented out.
104 ripped out error checking of set_services. this is done by _add_to_runlevel.
105
106 25 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
107 set_stage_tarball_uri() doesn't raise an exception on a blank string.
108
109 24 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
110 GRP-ish quickpkg code pulls PKGDIR and PORTAGE_TMPDIR from make.conf info in
111 the install profile if available. Commented out spawn() debugging prints
112
113 23 Mar 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
114 small changes to setup_network_post. moved adding to runlevel of net.x to
115 after the device gets symlinked. added domainname runlevel command.
116
117 23 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
118 minor fix (hopefully) to livecd-kernel code. Removed call to mkvardb in
119 livecd-kernel code as it's now done by catalyst. Switch _emerge() call to
120 spawn() call in livecd-kernel code to pass environment variables.
121 livecd-kernel code pulls PKGDIR and PORTAGE_TMPDIR from make.conf info in
122 the install profile if available.
123
124 23 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
125 Added code to build_kernel() and emerge_kernel_sources() in ArchTemplate
126 to handle installing the livecd kernel into the new system.
127
128 22 Mar 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
129 should emerge hotplug and coldplug before adding them to runlevel.
130
131 21 Mar 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
132 took chroot out of grub_install command.
133
134 21 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
135 Changed chroot wrapper code in spawn() to write the wrapper the python way
136 instead of the bash way to avoid quote conflicts. Added
137 'logfile=self._compile_logfile' to a number of spawn() calls. Added new
138 hash_password() function to GLIUtility. Remove command to 'rm /tmp/spawn.sh'
139 as it breaks the piping.
140
141 20 Mar 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
142 Added the amd64ArchitectureTemplate, mostly a copy of x86 without lilo.
143
144 20 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
145 Added _get_packages_to_emerge() to GLIArchitectureTemplate and calls in
146 stage1() and stage2(). Added 'origminor' parameter to GLIStorageDevice and
147 GLIInstallProfile.
148
149 19 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
150 Fixed a couple bugs in add_netmount() in GLIInstallProfile. spawn() outputs
151 to the actual tty8 with display_on_tty8 flag. Compile output logfile moved
152 into /mnt/gentoo in prepare_chroot()
153
154 18 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
155 Add sigunmask.c contributed by d_m (on freenode) to counteract python's
156 retarted behavior regarding threads and signals. Add code to convert MB/%/*
157 to start/end sectors
158
159 17 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
160 Add 2>&1 to cmd in spawn()
161
162 16 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
163 Modified GLIUtility.exitsuccess() to work with return value from
164 commands.getstatusoutput instead of os.waitpid(). spawn() automatically
165 creates wrapper script for commands run inside chroot so multiple commands
166 and redirection can be used. Change exitsuccess() back. Added 'chmod a+x'
167 for the generated script from spawn()
168
169 16 Mar 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
170 Removed default values for stage tarball URI and portage tree URI from
171 InstallProfile. These should be set by the FEs. also added services step to
172 ArchTemplate and coldplug/hotplug runlevels to the genkernel step.
173 Possibly fixed CC DHCP bug with -n. (thx agaffney)
174
175 14 Mar 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
176 Small fix for setting the default gateway. Also added feature to dialogfe.
177
178 7 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
179 Switched spawn() over to commands.getstatusoutput() instead of fork/waitpid
180
181 1 Mar 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
182 Fixed a bunch of true -> True typos. lots of em
183 only write new resolv.conf if there are dns servers listed.
184
185 1 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
186 Commented out 'display_on_tty8=True' in start_portmap()
187
188 18 Feb 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
189 added progress bar to dialogfe and fix logger bug in ArchTemplate.
190
191 18 Feb 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
192 Created GLISayWhat module. Renamed GLISayWhat to GLILocalization. Moved
193 lang parameter to __init__()
194
195 10 Feb 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
196 updates to TODO list.
197
198 6 Feb 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
199 Initial code for quickpkg GRP support. Fix loop to grab packages from
200 'emerge -p blah'
201
202 6 Feb 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
203 check for dhcp in the network stuff and emerge it if it is.
204 added quickpkg to TODO list
205
206 5 Feb 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
207 Changed the raising of 'warning' exceptions to a simple log of the error
208 so that the installer can continue.
209
210 3 Feb 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
211 Some big changes. First, changed most output to display_on_tty8.
212 Second, added log lines to all templates. Some smaller fixes such as typos.
213 Also did some cleanups of old commented lines.
214
215 1 Feb 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
216 Changed tty8 output to a fifo. Minor GLIStorageDevice fix thanks to BenUrban.
217 Undo change with fix. Escaping fix in GLIStorageDevice.py
218
219 31 Jan 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
220 more updates to TODO list. hopefully we'll soon start removing items instead
221 of adding them.
222
223 29 Jan 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
224 Changed the way GLIStorageDevice.get_max_sectors_for_resize() works
225
226 27 Jan 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
227 updated TODO list. (again)
228
229 25 Jan 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>

232 fixed custom kernel config (again)
233
234 22 Jan 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
235 changed default value of CC._enable_ssh to True because this is smart.
236 added code to allow custom kernel .config. may be unstable and break. sorry.
237
238 21 Jan 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
239 partition() now waits until after it checks for partition flags before delete
240 the partitions :P
241
242 19 Jan 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
243 Updated TODO. swapon failure it temporarily not an error. swapon is an error
244 again. is_uri() check only performed on portage_tree_snapshot_uri if it isn't
245 blank.
246
247 19 Jan 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
248 Various fixes related to the add_users function. Still not yet finished.
249 Added things to the TODO list. Lets start using that!
250
251 18 Jan 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
252 Added code to x86Template to format newly created partitions. Also added
253 some error checking code. GLIStorageDevice passes 'minor' with data to
254 InstallProfile. Added partition() call back in ArchTemplate. Fixed NFS
255 mounting code.
256
257 18 Jan 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
258 Took out unnecessary setting of random livecd root password. the cd already
259 sets it randomly.
260
261 15 Jan 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
262 Took out an unneeded step from CC's run()
263
264 15 Jan 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
265 Attempt at detecting and adding windows partitions to lilo.
266
267 14 Jan 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
268 Added lilo code and cleaned up lilo code. also do_partitioning renamed to
269 partition. fixed misc exit_status => exitstatus typo.
270
271 11 Jan 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
272 Added basic code for resizing filesystems with pyparted. Fixed code for
273 resizing ntfs and ext2/3.
274
275 10 Jan 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
276 Fixed partition() in x86Template so that it scans through logicals and deletes
277 before deleting containing extended partition. Also clears partition table to
278 be safe before third pass.
279
280 08 Jan 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
281 Added mount_network_shares. not able to test it from this computer.
282 will test when i get back to school.
283 also added start_portmap to the client_controller as an always-do.
284 agaffney says this is needed for NFS mounts to work.
285
286 08 Jan 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
287 Partial rewrite of partitioning code in x86Template. No longer shells out to
288 parted to perform actions, now uses all pyparted calls. Code "works" in a
289 test, but still needs lots of TLC. Also modified tests/install.py to work
290 with x86Template and GLIClientConfiguration.
291
292 07 Jan 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
293 Initial move of partitioning code from ArchTemplate to x86Template.
294
295 07 Jan 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
296 Added grp_install and services to InstallProfile. forgot about the set_root_password
297
298 07 Jan 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
299 Fixed a few more edit_configs. fixed a chroot multicommand bug thanks to agaffney.
300 Test Install ran very well (skipping partitioning).
301
302 05 Jan 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
303 My mid-day update. rewrote mount_local_partitions for order of mounting. fixed prepare_chroot
304 rewrote configure_fstab and install_bootloader for new partition format. fixed a few _edit_configs.
305 some may still have eluded me.
306
307 05 Jan 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
308 Overhauled the entire ArchTemplate and did a lot of other misc fixes in order to test it.
309 Just finished mount_local_partitions in GLIArchitectureTemplate
310
311 05 Jan 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
312 Added get_num_sectors() to GLIStorageDevice.
313
314 04 Jan 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
315 GLIStorageDevice now tracks partition boundaries in sectors instead of cylinders.
316 Also now ignores <=100 sectors for free space. Removed remaining depends stuff
317 from GLIInstallProfile.
318
319 20 Dec 2004; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
320 GLIStorageDevice returns "unknown" instead of "" for get_type()
321
322 19 Dec 2004; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
323 Added get_extended_partition() to GLIStorageDevice. Rewrote get_logicals() to
324 actually work. Commented out resizability checking code for speed.
325
326 17 Dec 2004; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
327 Switched to using dumpe2fs to determine free space left in ext2/3 filesystem in
328 GLIStorageDevice at the suggestion of plors
329
330 10 Dec 2004; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
331 Added a function to GLIUtility to pull a value from a make.conf-style config
332 file. Minor type fix to GLIInstallProfile.py
333
334 09 Dec 2004; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
335 Added code in GLIArchitectureTemplate.py to write netmounts into fstab. Separated
336 network mounts from partition data structure in GLIInstallProfile
337
338 27 Nov 2004; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
339 Changed the way GLIStorageDevice.py determines the amount a ext2/3 filesystem
340 can be resized.
341
342 27 Oct 2004; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
343 Added some of the final functions to GLIInstallTemplate.
344 Yes this project is still active despite rare use of the Changelog!
345
346 11 Jun 2004; Nathaniel McCallum <npmccallum@gentoo.org>
347 Added the GLIPartitionTools.py file. This is a temporary insertion of
348 partitioning tools that will eventually go into their own package.
349
350 27 Mar 2004; Nathaniel McCallum <npmccallum@gentoo.org>
351 Added InstallProfileTODO.txt. Added GLIClientConfiguration.py (contains run-time
352 for the program). Added __init__(install_profile, client_configuration) to
353 GLI.InstallProfile. This sets install_profile and client_configuration once so as
354 to avoid constantly passing stuff every time we call a method.
355
356 26 Mar 2004; Nathaniel McCallum <npmccallum@gentoo.org>
357
358 Added another private method to GLI.InstallTemplate. _edit_config() modifies config
359 files without messing up all the other stuff in them. This will be used for making
360 changes to make.conf, rc.conf, /etc/conf.d/net, etc...
361
362 25 Mar 2004; Nathaniel McCallum <npmccallum@gentoo.org>
363
364 Added GLI.InstallTemplate framework. This is not yet functional. However, it does
365 have a few basic things. I added two private methods. One is _depends(). This
366 will be used for dependency checking (ie. unpacking a tarball requires that
367 partitioning has been done). The other is _exec_in_chroot(). This is the exact
368 same syntax as os.system(), however, instead of being run in the liveCD
369 environment, it runs in the chroot. This requires a bit of fork() magic, so I
370 isolated the code. Hope to work more this week to get this class formed...
371
372 14 Feb 2004; Eric Sammer <esammer@gentoo.org>
373
374 Added SAX parsing. Made GLI.InstallProfile a subclass of xml.sax.ContentHandler for
375 obvious reasons. Switched kernel_modules and users to be lists instead of tuples
376 to allow for easier modification (mutable, rather than immutable objects). Updated
377 existing pydoc and added more. Implemented body of GLI.InstallProfile.parse().
378 Cleaned file format of GLI.py a bit. Fixed all accessors to use self references.
379 Added initial unit test code.
380
381 9 Feb 2004; Eric Sammer <esammer@gentoo.org>
382
383 Added initial changelog. Setting up the basic structure of the CVS repository
384 for the project. Added the UML class diagram in docs. Added a skeletal GLI
385 python module. Added misc files such news, authors, etc.
