14 GLIStorageDevice as suggested by pychecker.
15
16 28 Apr 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>

18
19 27 Apr 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
20 Added post-install script code
21
22 23 Apr 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>

25 22 Apr 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
26 Update resizing code in GLIStorageDevice
27
28 17 Apr 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
29 Update AUTHORS, NEWS, TODO. Added documentation to GLILogger.
30
31 17 Apr 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
32 Reverted change to ArchTemplate and added support for commented line in old
33 code.
34
35 16 Apr 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
36 Changed _edit_config() to modify value in-place instead of commenting out and
37 adding the new value to the end of the file.
38
39 15 Apr 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
40 Back. Did the docuementation thang for ArchTemplate and ClientConfiguration.
41 Also updated TODO list.
42
43 14 Apr 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
44 Use blackace's one-liner to add comments for all function for use with
45 pythondoc.
46
47 13 Apr 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
48 Moved 'end >= device_sectors' check out of loop to check for next partition's
49 start point (thanks to Marco Djukic). Fix >4 primary partitions on non-x86.
50 Partitioning code now tracks start/end of extended for placing logicals. End
51 point of logical is now adjusted along with start.
52
53 11 Apr 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
54 Finish overhaul of backend partitioning code. Fixed all bugs that stood in
55 the way of partitioning from a blank disk. Add int() around access to minor
56 key in partition information due to new partition code leaving them as float.
57
58 10 Apr 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
59 tidy_partitions() function in GLIStorageDevice. Tweaks to tidy code
60

63
64 8 Apr 2005; Scott Myron <samyron@gentoo.org>
65 Added support for DHCP options and MAC addresses in the InstallProfile.
66
67 3 Apr 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
68 Changed mountopts check to work for blank and whitespace. Pipe emerge through
69 sed to properly strip out junk.
70
71 2 Apr 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
72 fixed the way set_timezone works. added hotplug/coldplug for livecd-kernel
73 added --emptytree to stage2. fixed ethx not being added to runlevel defalt.
74
75 31 Mar 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
76 Fixed indent problem in GLICController
77
78 30 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
79 Check for disklabel type "loop" and use the device name without a minor.
80
81 29 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
82 Remove /tmp/compile_output.log and /var/log/install.log when install is
83 complete. Added code to (hopefully) keep 2nd thread running after install.
84 Patch from zahna for extra arguments to the kernel. Patch from zahna to add
85 get_eth_info() function. Remove most of content in amd64ArchTemplate and
86 make it inherit from x86Archtemplate. kernel_args -> bootloader_kernel_args
87
88 28 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
89 Added 'append_log=True' to all spawn() calls using logfile=. Append to log
90 when unpacking tarball.
91
92 28 Mar 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
93 rewrote filesystem_tools. looks like it works so ripping out all the old
94 filesystem_tools code.
95
96 26 Mar 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
97 Changed the print statements to logging in the partitioning BE code.
98 the logger may need to be imported to the x86archtemplate. unknown yet.
99 Added the finishing_cleanup function.
100 added a fix to the logger from BenUrban
101
102 25 Mar 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
103 changed InstallProfile to remove is_uri check on kernel, stage, and portage
104 URIs. The blank uri check has been commented out.
105 ripped out error checking of set_services. this is done by _add_to_runlevel.
106
107 25 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
108 set_stage_tarball_uri() doesn't raise an exception on a blank string.
109
110 24 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
111 GRP-ish quickpkg code pulls PKGDIR and PORTAGE_TMPDIR from make.conf info in
112 the install profile if available. Commented out spawn() debugging prints
113
114 23 Mar 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
115 small changes to setup_network_post. moved adding to runlevel of net.x to
116 after the device gets symlinked. added domainname runlevel command.
117
118 23 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
119 minor fix (hopefully) to livecd-kernel code. Removed call to mkvardb in
120 livecd-kernel code as it's now done by catalyst. Switch _emerge() call to
121 spawn() call in livecd-kernel code to pass environment variables.
122 livecd-kernel code pulls PKGDIR and PORTAGE_TMPDIR from make.conf info in
123 the install profile if available.
124
125 23 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
126 Added code to build_kernel() and emerge_kernel_sources() in ArchTemplate
127 to handle installing the livecd kernel into the new system.
128
129 22 Mar 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
130 should emerge hotplug and coldplug before adding them to runlevel.
131
132 21 Mar 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
133 took chroot out of grub_install command.
134
135 21 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
136 Changed chroot wrapper code in spawn() to write the wrapper the python way
137 instead of the bash way to avoid quote conflicts. Added
138 'logfile=self._compile_logfile' to a number of spawn() calls. Added new
139 hash_password() function to GLIUtility. Remove command to 'rm /tmp/spawn.sh'
140 as it breaks the piping.
141
142 20 Mar 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
143 Added the amd64ArchitectureTemplate, mostly a copy of x86 without lilo.
144
145 20 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
146 Added _get_packages_to_emerge() to GLIArchitectureTemplate and calls in
147 stage1() and stage2(). Added 'origminor' parameter to GLIStorageDevice and
148 GLIInstallProfile.
149
150 19 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
151 Fixed a couple bugs in add_netmount() in GLIInstallProfile. spawn() outputs
152 to the actual tty8 with display_on_tty8 flag. Compile output logfile moved
153 into /mnt/gentoo in prepare_chroot()
154
155 18 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
156 Add sigunmask.c contributed by d_m (on freenode) to counteract python's
157 retarted behavior regarding threads and signals. Add code to convert MB/%/*
158 to start/end sectors
159
160 17 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
161 Add 2>&1 to cmd in spawn()
162
163 16 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
164 Modified GLIUtility.exitsuccess() to work with return value from
165 commands.getstatusoutput instead of os.waitpid(). spawn() automatically
166 creates wrapper script for commands run inside chroot so multiple commands
167 and redirection can be used. Change exitsuccess() back. Added 'chmod a+x'
168 for the generated script from spawn()
169
170 16 Mar 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
171 Removed default values for stage tarball URI and portage tree URI from
172 InstallProfile. These should be set by the FEs. also added services step to
173 ArchTemplate and coldplug/hotplug runlevels to the genkernel step.
174 Possibly fixed CC DHCP bug with -n. (thx agaffney)
175
176 14 Mar 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
177 Small fix for setting the default gateway. Also added feature to dialogfe.
178
179 7 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
180 Switched spawn() over to commands.getstatusoutput() instead of fork/waitpid
181
182 1 Mar 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
183 Fixed a bunch of true -> True typos. lots of em
184 only write new resolv.conf if there are dns servers listed.
185
186 1 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
187 Commented out 'display_on_tty8=True' in start_portmap()
188
189 18 Feb 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
190 added progress bar to dialogfe and fix logger bug in ArchTemplate.
191
192 18 Feb 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
193 Created GLISayWhat module. Renamed GLISayWhat to GLILocalization. Moved
194 lang parameter to __init__()
195
196 10 Feb 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
197 updates to TODO list.
198
199 6 Feb 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
200 Initial code for quickpkg GRP support. Fix loop to grab packages from
201 'emerge -p blah'
202
203 6 Feb 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
204 check for dhcp in the network stuff and emerge it if it is.
205 added quickpkg to TODO list
206
207 5 Feb 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
208 Changed the raising of 'warning' exceptions to a simple log of the error
209 so that the installer can continue.
210
211 3 Feb 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
212 Some big changes. First, changed most output to display_on_tty8.
213 Second, added log lines to all templates. Some smaller fixes such as typos.
214 Also did some cleanups of old commented lines.
215
216 1 Feb 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
217 Changed tty8 output to a fifo. Minor GLIStorageDevice fix thanks to BenUrban.
218 Undo change with fix. Escaping fix in GLIStorageDevice.py
219
220 31 Jan 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
221 more updates to TODO list. hopefully we'll soon start removing items instead
222 of adding them.
223
224 29 Jan 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
225 Changed the way GLIStorageDevice.get_max_sectors_for_resize() works
226
227 27 Jan 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
228 updated TODO list. (again)
229
230 25 Jan 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>

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