7 29 Apr 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
8 Patches from chotchki (bug #90325) to improve CC networking. untested.
9
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'. Minor fixes to

16
17 28 Apr 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>

19
20 27 Apr 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
21 Added post-install script code
22
23 23 Apr 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
24 Fixed encapsulation issues in GLIClientController (bug #90141)
25
26 22 Apr 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
27 Update resizing code in GLIStorageDevice
28
29 17 Apr 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
30 Update AUTHORS, NEWS, TODO. Added documentation to GLILogger.
31
32 17 Apr 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
33 Reverted change to ArchTemplate and added support for commented line in old
34 code.
35
36 16 Apr 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
37 Changed _edit_config() to modify value in-place instead of commenting out and
38 adding the new value to the end of the file.
39
40 15 Apr 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
41 Back. Did the docuementation thang for ArchTemplate and ClientConfiguration.
42 Also updated TODO list.
43
44 14 Apr 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
45 Use blackace's one-liner to add comments for all function for use with
46 pythondoc.
47
48 13 Apr 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
49 Moved 'end >= device_sectors' check out of loop to check for next partition's
50 start point (thanks to Marco Djukic). Fix >4 primary partitions on non-x86.
51 Partitioning code now tracks start/end of extended for placing logicals. End
52 point of logical is now adjusted along with start.
53
54 11 Apr 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
55 Finish overhaul of backend partitioning code. Fixed all bugs that stood in
56 the way of partitioning from a blank disk. Add int() around access to minor
57 key in partition information due to new partition code leaving them as float.
58
59 10 Apr 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
60 tidy_partitions() function in GLIStorageDevice. Tweaks to tidy code
61
62 9 Apr 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
63 Major GLIStorageDevice overhaul...all MB now instead of sectors.
64
65 8 Apr 2005; Scott Myron <samyron@gentoo.org>
66 Added support for DHCP options and MAC addresses in the InstallProfile.
67
68 3 Apr 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
69 Changed mountopts check to work for blank and whitespace. Pipe emerge through
70 sed to properly strip out junk.
71
72 2 Apr 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
73 fixed the way set_timezone works. added hotplug/coldplug for livecd-kernel
74 added --emptytree to stage2. fixed ethx not being added to runlevel defalt.
75
76 31 Mar 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
77 Fixed indent problem in GLICController
78
79 30 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
80 Check for disklabel type "loop" and use the device name without a minor.
81
82 29 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
83 Remove /tmp/compile_output.log and /var/log/install.log when install is
84 complete. Added code to (hopefully) keep 2nd thread running after install.
85 Patch from zahna for extra arguments to the kernel. Patch from zahna to add
86 get_eth_info() function. Remove most of content in amd64ArchTemplate and
87 make it inherit from x86Archtemplate. kernel_args -> bootloader_kernel_args
88
89 28 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
90 Added 'append_log=True' to all spawn() calls using logfile=. Append to log
91 when unpacking tarball.
92
93 28 Mar 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
94 rewrote filesystem_tools. looks like it works so ripping out all the old
95 filesystem_tools code.
96
97 26 Mar 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
98 Changed the print statements to logging in the partitioning BE code.
99 the logger may need to be imported to the x86archtemplate. unknown yet.
100 Added the finishing_cleanup function.
101 added a fix to the logger from BenUrban
102
103 25 Mar 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
104 changed InstallProfile to remove is_uri check on kernel, stage, and portage
105 URIs. The blank uri check has been commented out.
106 ripped out error checking of set_services. this is done by _add_to_runlevel.
107
108 25 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
109 set_stage_tarball_uri() doesn't raise an exception on a blank string.
110
111 24 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
112 GRP-ish quickpkg code pulls PKGDIR and PORTAGE_TMPDIR from make.conf info in
113 the install profile if available. Commented out spawn() debugging prints
114
115 23 Mar 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
116 small changes to setup_network_post. moved adding to runlevel of net.x to
117 after the device gets symlinked. added domainname runlevel command.
118
119 23 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
120 minor fix (hopefully) to livecd-kernel code. Removed call to mkvardb in
121 livecd-kernel code as it's now done by catalyst. Switch _emerge() call to
122 spawn() call in livecd-kernel code to pass environment variables.
123 livecd-kernel code pulls PKGDIR and PORTAGE_TMPDIR from make.conf info in
124 the install profile if available.
125
126 23 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
127 Added code to build_kernel() and emerge_kernel_sources() in ArchTemplate
128 to handle installing the livecd kernel into the new system.
129
130 22 Mar 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
131 should emerge hotplug and coldplug before adding them to runlevel.
132
133 21 Mar 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
134 took chroot out of grub_install command.
135
136 21 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
137 Changed chroot wrapper code in spawn() to write the wrapper the python way
138 instead of the bash way to avoid quote conflicts. Added
139 'logfile=self._compile_logfile' to a number of spawn() calls. Added new
140 hash_password() function to GLIUtility. Remove command to 'rm /tmp/spawn.sh'
141 as it breaks the piping.
142
143 20 Mar 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
144 Added the amd64ArchitectureTemplate, mostly a copy of x86 without lilo.
145
146 20 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
147 Added _get_packages_to_emerge() to GLIArchitectureTemplate and calls in
148 stage1() and stage2(). Added 'origminor' parameter to GLIStorageDevice and
149 GLIInstallProfile.
150
151 19 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
152 Fixed a couple bugs in add_netmount() in GLIInstallProfile. spawn() outputs
153 to the actual tty8 with display_on_tty8 flag. Compile output logfile moved
154 into /mnt/gentoo in prepare_chroot()
155
156 18 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
157 Add sigunmask.c contributed by d_m (on freenode) to counteract python's
158 retarted behavior regarding threads and signals. Add code to convert MB/%/*
159 to start/end sectors
160
161 17 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
162 Add 2>&1 to cmd in spawn()
163
164 16 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
165 Modified GLIUtility.exitsuccess() to work with return value from
166 commands.getstatusoutput instead of os.waitpid(). spawn() automatically
167 creates wrapper script for commands run inside chroot so multiple commands
168 and redirection can be used. Change exitsuccess() back. Added 'chmod a+x'
169 for the generated script from spawn()
170
171 16 Mar 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
172 Removed default values for stage tarball URI and portage tree URI from
173 InstallProfile. These should be set by the FEs. also added services step to
174 ArchTemplate and coldplug/hotplug runlevels to the genkernel step.
175 Possibly fixed CC DHCP bug with -n. (thx agaffney)
176
177 14 Mar 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
178 Small fix for setting the default gateway. Also added feature to dialogfe.
179
180 7 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
181 Switched spawn() over to commands.getstatusoutput() instead of fork/waitpid
182
183 1 Mar 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
184 Fixed a bunch of true -> True typos. lots of em
185 only write new resolv.conf if there are dns servers listed.
186
187 1 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
188 Commented out 'display_on_tty8=True' in start_portmap()
189
190 18 Feb 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
191 added progress bar to dialogfe and fix logger bug in ArchTemplate.
192
193 18 Feb 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
194 Created GLISayWhat module. Renamed GLISayWhat to GLILocalization. Moved
195 lang parameter to __init__()
196
197 10 Feb 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
198 updates to TODO list.
199
200 6 Feb 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
201 Initial code for quickpkg GRP support. Fix loop to grab packages from
202 'emerge -p blah'
203
204 6 Feb 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
205 check for dhcp in the network stuff and emerge it if it is.
206 added quickpkg to TODO list
207
208 5 Feb 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
209 Changed the raising of 'warning' exceptions to a simple log of the error
210 so that the installer can continue.
211
212 3 Feb 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
213 Some big changes. First, changed most output to display_on_tty8.
214 Second, added log lines to all templates. Some smaller fixes such as typos.
215 Also did some cleanups of old commented lines.
216
217 1 Feb 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
218 Changed tty8 output to a fifo. Minor GLIStorageDevice fix thanks to BenUrban.
219 Undo change with fix. Escaping fix in GLIStorageDevice.py
220
221 31 Jan 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
222 more updates to TODO list. hopefully we'll soon start removing items instead
223 of adding them.
224
225 29 Jan 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
226 Changed the way GLIStorageDevice.get_max_sectors_for_resize() works
227
228 27 Jan 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
229 updated TODO list. (again)
230
231 25 Jan 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
232 changed output of portmap start to display_on_tty8.
233 fixed bootloader for udev and multiple kernels
234 fixed custom kernel config (again)
235
236 22 Jan 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
237 changed default value of CC._enable_ssh to True because this is smart.
238 added code to allow custom kernel .config. may be unstable and break. sorry.
239
240 21 Jan 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
241 partition() now waits until after it checks for partition flags before delete
242 the partitions :P
243
244 19 Jan 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
245 Updated TODO. swapon failure it temporarily not an error. swapon is an error
246 again. is_uri() check only performed on portage_tree_snapshot_uri if it isn't
247 blank.
248
249 19 Jan 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
250 Various fixes related to the add_users function. Still not yet finished.
251 Added things to the TODO list. Lets start using that!
252
253 18 Jan 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
254 Added code to x86Template to format newly created partitions. Also added
255 some error checking code. GLIStorageDevice passes 'minor' with data to
256 InstallProfile. Added partition() call back in ArchTemplate. Fixed NFS
257 mounting code.
258
259 18 Jan 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
260 Took out unnecessary setting of random livecd root password. the cd already
261 sets it randomly.
262
263 15 Jan 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
264 Took out an unneeded step from CC's run()
265
266 15 Jan 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
267 Attempt at detecting and adding windows partitions to lilo.
268
269 14 Jan 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
270 Added lilo code and cleaned up lilo code. also do_partitioning renamed to
271 partition. fixed misc exit_status => exitstatus typo.
272
273 11 Jan 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
274 Added basic code for resizing filesystems with pyparted. Fixed code for
275 resizing ntfs and ext2/3.
276
277 10 Jan 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
278 Fixed partition() in x86Template so that it scans through logicals and deletes
279 before deleting containing extended partition. Also clears partition table to
280 be safe before third pass.
281
282 08 Jan 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
283 Added mount_network_shares. not able to test it from this computer.
284 will test when i get back to school.
285 also added start_portmap to the client_controller as an always-do.
286 agaffney says this is needed for NFS mounts to work.
287
288 08 Jan 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
289 Partial rewrite of partitioning code in x86Template. No longer shells out to
290 parted to perform actions, now uses all pyparted calls. Code "works" in a
291 test, but still needs lots of TLC. Also modified tests/install.py to work
292 with x86Template and GLIClientConfiguration.
293
294 07 Jan 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
295 Initial move of partitioning code from ArchTemplate to x86Template.
296
297 07 Jan 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
298 Added grp_install and services to InstallProfile. forgot about the set_root_password
299
300 07 Jan 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
301 Fixed a few more edit_configs. fixed a chroot multicommand bug thanks to agaffney.
302 Test Install ran very well (skipping partitioning).
303
304 05 Jan 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
305 My mid-day update. rewrote mount_local_partitions for order of mounting. fixed prepare_chroot
306 rewrote configure_fstab and install_bootloader for new partition format. fixed a few _edit_configs.
307 some may still have eluded me.
308
309 05 Jan 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
310 Overhauled the entire ArchTemplate and did a lot of other misc fixes in order to test it.
311 Just finished mount_local_partitions in GLIArchitectureTemplate
312
313 05 Jan 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
314 Added get_num_sectors() to GLIStorageDevice.
315
316 04 Jan 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
317 GLIStorageDevice now tracks partition boundaries in sectors instead of cylinders.
318 Also now ignores <=100 sectors for free space. Removed remaining depends stuff
319 from GLIInstallProfile.
320
321 20 Dec 2004; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
322 GLIStorageDevice returns "unknown" instead of "" for get_type()
323
324 19 Dec 2004; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
325 Added get_extended_partition() to GLIStorageDevice. Rewrote get_logicals() to
326 actually work. Commented out resizability checking code for speed.
327
328 17 Dec 2004; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
329 Switched to using dumpe2fs to determine free space left in ext2/3 filesystem in
330 GLIStorageDevice at the suggestion of plors
331
332 10 Dec 2004; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
333 Added a function to GLIUtility to pull a value from a make.conf-style config
334 file. Minor type fix to GLIInstallProfile.py
335
336 09 Dec 2004; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
337 Added code in GLIArchitectureTemplate.py to write netmounts into fstab. Separated
338 network mounts from partition data structure in GLIInstallProfile
339
340 27 Nov 2004; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
341 Changed the way GLIStorageDevice.py determines the amount a ext2/3 filesystem
342 can be resized.
343
344 27 Oct 2004; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
345 Added some of the final functions to GLIInstallTemplate.
346 Yes this project is still active despite rare use of the Changelog!
347
348 11 Jun 2004; Nathaniel McCallum <npmccallum@gentoo.org>
349 Added the GLIPartitionTools.py file. This is a temporary insertion of
350 partitioning tools that will eventually go into their own package.
351
352 27 Mar 2004; Nathaniel McCallum <npmccallum@gentoo.org>
353 Added InstallProfileTODO.txt. Added GLIClientConfiguration.py (contains run-time
354 for the program). Added __init__(install_profile, client_configuration) to
355 GLI.InstallProfile. This sets install_profile and client_configuration once so as
356 to avoid constantly passing stuff every time we call a method.
357
358 26 Mar 2004; Nathaniel McCallum <npmccallum@gentoo.org>
359
360 Added another private method to GLI.InstallTemplate. _edit_config() modifies config
361 files without messing up all the other stuff in them. This will be used for making
362 changes to make.conf, rc.conf, /etc/conf.d/net, etc...
363
364 25 Mar 2004; Nathaniel McCallum <npmccallum@gentoo.org>
365
366 Added GLI.InstallTemplate framework. This is not yet functional. However, it does
367 have a few basic things. I added two private methods. One is _depends(). This
368 will be used for dependency checking (ie. unpacking a tarball requires that
369 partitioning has been done). The other is _exec_in_chroot(). This is the exact
370 same syntax as os.system(), however, instead of being run in the liveCD
371 environment, it runs in the chroot. This requires a bit of fork() magic, so I
372 isolated the code. Hope to work more this week to get this class formed...
373
374 14 Feb 2004; Eric Sammer <esammer@gentoo.org>
375
376 Added SAX parsing. Made GLI.InstallProfile a subclass of xml.sax.ContentHandler for
377 obvious reasons. Switched kernel_modules and users to be lists instead of tuples
378 to allow for easier modification (mutable, rather than immutable objects). Updated
379 existing pydoc and added more. Implemented body of GLI.InstallProfile.parse().
380 Cleaned file format of GLI.py a bit. Fixed all accessors to use self references.
381 Added initial unit test code.
382
383 9 Feb 2004; Eric Sammer <esammer@gentoo.org>
384
385 Added initial changelog. Setting up the basic structure of the CVS repository
386 for the project. Added the UML class diagram in docs. Added a skeletal GLI
387 python module. Added misc files such news, authors, etc.
