15
16 29 Apr 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
17 Proxies patch from chotchki (bug #90147). Fixed == instead of = typos in
18 GLIStorageDevice (pointed out by chotchki). Fixed missing int()s. Split
19 'custom' sync option into 'none' and 'snapshot'. Minor fixes to
20 GLIStorageDevice as suggested by pychecker. Fix minor bug in

22 _get_packages_to_emerge()
23
24 28 Apr 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
25 Added group-adding code to set_users in ArchTemplate
26
27 27 Apr 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
28 Added post-install script code
29
30 23 Apr 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>

32
33 22 Apr 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
34 Update resizing code in GLIStorageDevice
35
36 17 Apr 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
37 Update AUTHORS, NEWS, TODO. Added documentation to GLILogger.
38
39 17 Apr 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
40 Reverted change to ArchTemplate and added support for commented line in old
41 code.
42
43 16 Apr 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
44 Changed _edit_config() to modify value in-place instead of commenting out and
45 adding the new value to the end of the file.
46
47 15 Apr 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
48 Back. Did the docuementation thang for ArchTemplate and ClientConfiguration.
49 Also updated TODO list.
50
51 14 Apr 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
52 Use blackace's one-liner to add comments for all function for use with
53 pythondoc.
54
55 13 Apr 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
56 Moved 'end >= device_sectors' check out of loop to check for next partition's
57 start point (thanks to Marco Djukic). Fix >4 primary partitions on non-x86.
58 Partitioning code now tracks start/end of extended for placing logicals. End
59 point of logical is now adjusted along with start.
60
61 11 Apr 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
62 Finish overhaul of backend partitioning code. Fixed all bugs that stood in
63 the way of partitioning from a blank disk. Add int() around access to minor
64 key in partition information due to new partition code leaving them as float.
65
66 10 Apr 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
67 tidy_partitions() function in GLIStorageDevice. Tweaks to tidy code
68
69 9 Apr 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>

71
72 8 Apr 2005; Scott Myron <samyron@gentoo.org>
73 Added support for DHCP options and MAC addresses in the InstallProfile.
74
75 3 Apr 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
76 Changed mountopts check to work for blank and whitespace. Pipe emerge through
77 sed to properly strip out junk.
78
79 2 Apr 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
80 fixed the way set_timezone works. added hotplug/coldplug for livecd-kernel
81 added --emptytree to stage2. fixed ethx not being added to runlevel defalt.
82
83 31 Mar 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
84 Fixed indent problem in GLICController
85
86 30 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
87 Check for disklabel type "loop" and use the device name without a minor.
88
89 29 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
90 Remove /tmp/compile_output.log and /var/log/install.log when install is
91 complete. Added code to (hopefully) keep 2nd thread running after install.
92 Patch from zahna for extra arguments to the kernel. Patch from zahna to add
93 get_eth_info() function. Remove most of content in amd64ArchTemplate and
94 make it inherit from x86Archtemplate. kernel_args -> bootloader_kernel_args
95
96 28 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
97 Added 'append_log=True' to all spawn() calls using logfile=. Append to log
98 when unpacking tarball.
99
100 28 Mar 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
101 rewrote filesystem_tools. looks like it works so ripping out all the old
102 filesystem_tools code.
103
104 26 Mar 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
105 Changed the print statements to logging in the partitioning BE code.
106 the logger may need to be imported to the x86archtemplate. unknown yet.
107 Added the finishing_cleanup function.
108 added a fix to the logger from BenUrban
109
110 25 Mar 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
111 changed InstallProfile to remove is_uri check on kernel, stage, and portage
112 URIs. The blank uri check has been commented out.
113 ripped out error checking of set_services. this is done by _add_to_runlevel.
114
115 25 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
116 set_stage_tarball_uri() doesn't raise an exception on a blank string.
117
118 24 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
119 GRP-ish quickpkg code pulls PKGDIR and PORTAGE_TMPDIR from make.conf info in
120 the install profile if available. Commented out spawn() debugging prints
121
122 23 Mar 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
123 small changes to setup_network_post. moved adding to runlevel of net.x to
124 after the device gets symlinked. added domainname runlevel command.
125
126 23 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
127 minor fix (hopefully) to livecd-kernel code. Removed call to mkvardb in
128 livecd-kernel code as it's now done by catalyst. Switch _emerge() call to
129 spawn() call in livecd-kernel code to pass environment variables.
130 livecd-kernel code pulls PKGDIR and PORTAGE_TMPDIR from make.conf info in
131 the install profile if available.
132
133 23 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
134 Added code to build_kernel() and emerge_kernel_sources() in ArchTemplate
135 to handle installing the livecd kernel into the new system.
136
137 22 Mar 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
138 should emerge hotplug and coldplug before adding them to runlevel.
139
140 21 Mar 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
141 took chroot out of grub_install command.
142
143 21 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
144 Changed chroot wrapper code in spawn() to write the wrapper the python way
145 instead of the bash way to avoid quote conflicts. Added
146 'logfile=self._compile_logfile' to a number of spawn() calls. Added new
147 hash_password() function to GLIUtility. Remove command to 'rm /tmp/spawn.sh'
148 as it breaks the piping.
149
150 20 Mar 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
151 Added the amd64ArchitectureTemplate, mostly a copy of x86 without lilo.
152
153 20 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
154 Added _get_packages_to_emerge() to GLIArchitectureTemplate and calls in
155 stage1() and stage2(). Added 'origminor' parameter to GLIStorageDevice and
156 GLIInstallProfile.
157
158 19 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
159 Fixed a couple bugs in add_netmount() in GLIInstallProfile. spawn() outputs
160 to the actual tty8 with display_on_tty8 flag. Compile output logfile moved
161 into /mnt/gentoo in prepare_chroot()
162
163 18 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
164 Add sigunmask.c contributed by d_m (on freenode) to counteract python's
165 retarted behavior regarding threads and signals. Add code to convert MB/%/*
166 to start/end sectors
167
168 17 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
169 Add 2>&1 to cmd in spawn()
170
171 16 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
172 Modified GLIUtility.exitsuccess() to work with return value from
173 commands.getstatusoutput instead of os.waitpid(). spawn() automatically
174 creates wrapper script for commands run inside chroot so multiple commands
175 and redirection can be used. Change exitsuccess() back. Added 'chmod a+x'
176 for the generated script from spawn()
177
178 16 Mar 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
179 Removed default values for stage tarball URI and portage tree URI from
180 InstallProfile. These should be set by the FEs. also added services step to
181 ArchTemplate and coldplug/hotplug runlevels to the genkernel step.
182 Possibly fixed CC DHCP bug with -n. (thx agaffney)
183
184 14 Mar 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
185 Small fix for setting the default gateway. Also added feature to dialogfe.
186
187 7 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
188 Switched spawn() over to commands.getstatusoutput() instead of fork/waitpid
189
190 1 Mar 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
191 Fixed a bunch of true -> True typos. lots of em
192 only write new resolv.conf if there are dns servers listed.
193
194 1 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
195 Commented out 'display_on_tty8=True' in start_portmap()
196
197 18 Feb 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
198 added progress bar to dialogfe and fix logger bug in ArchTemplate.
199
200 18 Feb 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
201 Created GLISayWhat module. Renamed GLISayWhat to GLILocalization. Moved
202 lang parameter to __init__()
203
204 10 Feb 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
205 updates to TODO list.
206
207 6 Feb 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
208 Initial code for quickpkg GRP support. Fix loop to grab packages from
209 'emerge -p blah'
210
211 6 Feb 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
212 check for dhcp in the network stuff and emerge it if it is.
213 added quickpkg to TODO list
214
215 5 Feb 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
216 Changed the raising of 'warning' exceptions to a simple log of the error
217 so that the installer can continue.
218
219 3 Feb 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
220 Some big changes. First, changed most output to display_on_tty8.
221 Second, added log lines to all templates. Some smaller fixes such as typos.
222 Also did some cleanups of old commented lines.
223
224 1 Feb 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
225 Changed tty8 output to a fifo. Minor GLIStorageDevice fix thanks to BenUrban.
226 Undo change with fix. Escaping fix in GLIStorageDevice.py
227
228 31 Jan 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
229 more updates to TODO list. hopefully we'll soon start removing items instead
230 of adding them.
231
232 29 Jan 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
233 Changed the way GLIStorageDevice.get_max_sectors_for_resize() works
234
235 27 Jan 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
236 updated TODO list. (again)
237
238 25 Jan 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>

240 fixed bootloader for udev and multiple kernels
241 fixed custom kernel config (again)
242
243 22 Jan 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
244 changed default value of CC._enable_ssh to True because this is smart.
245 added code to allow custom kernel .config. may be unstable and break. sorry.
246
247 21 Jan 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
248 partition() now waits until after it checks for partition flags before delete
249 the partitions :P
250
251 19 Jan 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
252 Updated TODO. swapon failure it temporarily not an error. swapon is an error
253 again. is_uri() check only performed on portage_tree_snapshot_uri if it isn't
254 blank.
255
256 19 Jan 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
257 Various fixes related to the add_users function. Still not yet finished.
258 Added things to the TODO list. Lets start using that!
259
260 18 Jan 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
261 Added code to x86Template to format newly created partitions. Also added
262 some error checking code. GLIStorageDevice passes 'minor' with data to
263 InstallProfile. Added partition() call back in ArchTemplate. Fixed NFS
264 mounting code.
265
266 18 Jan 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
267 Took out unnecessary setting of random livecd root password. the cd already
268 sets it randomly.
269
270 15 Jan 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
271 Took out an unneeded step from CC's run()
272
273 15 Jan 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
274 Attempt at detecting and adding windows partitions to lilo.
275
276 14 Jan 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
277 Added lilo code and cleaned up lilo code. also do_partitioning renamed to
278 partition. fixed misc exit_status => exitstatus typo.
279
280 11 Jan 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
281 Added basic code for resizing filesystems with pyparted. Fixed code for
282 resizing ntfs and ext2/3.
283
284 10 Jan 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
285 Fixed partition() in x86Template so that it scans through logicals and deletes
286 before deleting containing extended partition. Also clears partition table to
287 be safe before third pass.
288
289 08 Jan 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
290 Added mount_network_shares. not able to test it from this computer.
291 will test when i get back to school.
292 also added start_portmap to the client_controller as an always-do.
293 agaffney says this is needed for NFS mounts to work.
294
295 08 Jan 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
296 Partial rewrite of partitioning code in x86Template. No longer shells out to
297 parted to perform actions, now uses all pyparted calls. Code "works" in a
298 test, but still needs lots of TLC. Also modified tests/install.py to work
299 with x86Template and GLIClientConfiguration.
300
301 07 Jan 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
302 Initial move of partitioning code from ArchTemplate to x86Template.
303
304 07 Jan 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
305 Added grp_install and services to InstallProfile. forgot about the set_root_password
306
307 07 Jan 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
308 Fixed a few more edit_configs. fixed a chroot multicommand bug thanks to agaffney.
309 Test Install ran very well (skipping partitioning).
310
311 05 Jan 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
312 My mid-day update. rewrote mount_local_partitions for order of mounting. fixed prepare_chroot
313 rewrote configure_fstab and install_bootloader for new partition format. fixed a few _edit_configs.
314 some may still have eluded me.
315
316 05 Jan 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
317 Overhauled the entire ArchTemplate and did a lot of other misc fixes in order to test it.
318 Just finished mount_local_partitions in GLIArchitectureTemplate
319
320 05 Jan 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
321 Added get_num_sectors() to GLIStorageDevice.
322
323 04 Jan 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
324 GLIStorageDevice now tracks partition boundaries in sectors instead of cylinders.
325 Also now ignores <=100 sectors for free space. Removed remaining depends stuff
326 from GLIInstallProfile.
327
328 20 Dec 2004; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
329 GLIStorageDevice returns "unknown" instead of "" for get_type()
330
331 19 Dec 2004; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
332 Added get_extended_partition() to GLIStorageDevice. Rewrote get_logicals() to
333 actually work. Commented out resizability checking code for speed.
334
335 17 Dec 2004; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
336 Switched to using dumpe2fs to determine free space left in ext2/3 filesystem in
337 GLIStorageDevice at the suggestion of plors
338
339 10 Dec 2004; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
340 Added a function to GLIUtility to pull a value from a make.conf-style config
341 file. Minor type fix to GLIInstallProfile.py
342
343 09 Dec 2004; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
344 Added code in GLIArchitectureTemplate.py to write netmounts into fstab. Separated
345 network mounts from partition data structure in GLIInstallProfile
346
347 27 Nov 2004; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
348 Changed the way GLIStorageDevice.py determines the amount a ext2/3 filesystem
349 can be resized.
350
351 27 Oct 2004; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
352 Added some of the final functions to GLIInstallTemplate.
353 Yes this project is still active despite rare use of the Changelog!
354
355 11 Jun 2004; Nathaniel McCallum <npmccallum@gentoo.org>
356 Added the GLIPartitionTools.py file. This is a temporary insertion of
357 partitioning tools that will eventually go into their own package.
358
359 27 Mar 2004; Nathaniel McCallum <npmccallum@gentoo.org>
360 Added InstallProfileTODO.txt. Added GLIClientConfiguration.py (contains run-time
361 for the program). Added __init__(install_profile, client_configuration) to
362 GLI.InstallProfile. This sets install_profile and client_configuration once so as
363 to avoid constantly passing stuff every time we call a method.
364
365 26 Mar 2004; Nathaniel McCallum <npmccallum@gentoo.org>
366
367 Added another private method to GLI.InstallTemplate. _edit_config() modifies config
368 files without messing up all the other stuff in them. This will be used for making
369 changes to make.conf, rc.conf, /etc/conf.d/net, etc...
370
371 25 Mar 2004; Nathaniel McCallum <npmccallum@gentoo.org>
372
373 Added GLI.InstallTemplate framework. This is not yet functional. However, it does
374 have a few basic things. I added two private methods. One is _depends(). This
375 will be used for dependency checking (ie. unpacking a tarball requires that
376 partitioning has been done). The other is _exec_in_chroot(). This is the exact
377 same syntax as os.system(), however, instead of being run in the liveCD
378 environment, it runs in the chroot. This requires a bit of fork() magic, so I
379 isolated the code. Hope to work more this week to get this class formed...
380
381 14 Feb 2004; Eric Sammer <esammer@gentoo.org>
382
383 Added SAX parsing. Made GLI.InstallProfile a subclass of xml.sax.ContentHandler for
384 obvious reasons. Switched kernel_modules and users to be lists instead of tuples
385 to allow for easier modification (mutable, rather than immutable objects). Updated
386 existing pydoc and added more. Implemented body of GLI.InstallProfile.parse().
387 Cleaned file format of GLI.py a bit. Fixed all accessors to use self references.
388 Added initial unit test code.
389
390 9 Feb 2004; Eric Sammer <esammer@gentoo.org>
391
392 Added initial changelog. Setting up the basic structure of the CVS repository
393 for the project. Added the UML class diagram in docs. Added a skeletal GLI
394 python module. Added misc files such news, authors, etc.
