37 Update resizing code in GLIStorageDevice
38
39 17 Apr 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
40 Update AUTHORS, NEWS, TODO. Added documentation to GLILogger.
41
42 17 Apr 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
43 Reverted change to ArchTemplate and added support for commented line in old
44 code.
45
46 16 Apr 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>

48 adding the new value to the end of the file.
49
50 15 Apr 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
51 Back. Did the docuementation thang for ArchTemplate and ClientConfiguration.
52 Also updated TODO list.
53
54 14 Apr 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
55 Use blackace's one-liner to add comments for all function for use with
56 pythondoc.
57
58 13 Apr 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
59 Moved 'end >= device_sectors' check out of loop to check for next partition's
60 start point (thanks to Marco Djukic). Fix >4 primary partitions on non-x86.
61 Partitioning code now tracks start/end of extended for placing logicals. End
62 point of logical is now adjusted along with start.
63
64 11 Apr 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
65 Finish overhaul of backend partitioning code. Fixed all bugs that stood in
66 the way of partitioning from a blank disk. Add int() around access to minor
67 key in partition information due to new partition code leaving them as float.
68
69 10 Apr 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
70 tidy_partitions() function in GLIStorageDevice. Tweaks to tidy code
71
72 9 Apr 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>

74
75 8 Apr 2005; Scott Myron <samyron@gentoo.org>
76 Added support for DHCP options and MAC addresses in the InstallProfile.
77
78 3 Apr 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
79 Changed mountopts check to work for blank and whitespace. Pipe emerge through
80 sed to properly strip out junk.
81
82 2 Apr 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
83 fixed the way set_timezone works. added hotplug/coldplug for livecd-kernel
84 added --emptytree to stage2. fixed ethx not being added to runlevel defalt.
85
86 31 Mar 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
87 Fixed indent problem in GLICController
88
89 30 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
90 Check for disklabel type "loop" and use the device name without a minor.
91
92 29 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
93 Remove /tmp/compile_output.log and /var/log/install.log when install is
94 complete. Added code to (hopefully) keep 2nd thread running after install.
95 Patch from zahna for extra arguments to the kernel. Patch from zahna to add
96 get_eth_info() function. Remove most of content in amd64ArchTemplate and
97 make it inherit from x86Archtemplate. kernel_args -> bootloader_kernel_args
98
99 28 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
100 Added 'append_log=True' to all spawn() calls using logfile=. Append to log
101 when unpacking tarball.
102
103 28 Mar 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
104 rewrote filesystem_tools. looks like it works so ripping out all the old
105 filesystem_tools code.
106
107 26 Mar 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
108 Changed the print statements to logging in the partitioning BE code.
109 the logger may need to be imported to the x86archtemplate. unknown yet.
110 Added the finishing_cleanup function.
111 added a fix to the logger from BenUrban
112
113 25 Mar 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
114 changed InstallProfile to remove is_uri check on kernel, stage, and portage
115 URIs. The blank uri check has been commented out.
116 ripped out error checking of set_services. this is done by _add_to_runlevel.
117
118 25 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
119 set_stage_tarball_uri() doesn't raise an exception on a blank string.
120
121 24 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
122 GRP-ish quickpkg code pulls PKGDIR and PORTAGE_TMPDIR from make.conf info in
123 the install profile if available. Commented out spawn() debugging prints
124
125 23 Mar 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
126 small changes to setup_network_post. moved adding to runlevel of net.x to
127 after the device gets symlinked. added domainname runlevel command.
128
129 23 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
130 minor fix (hopefully) to livecd-kernel code. Removed call to mkvardb in
131 livecd-kernel code as it's now done by catalyst. Switch _emerge() call to
132 spawn() call in livecd-kernel code to pass environment variables.
133 livecd-kernel code pulls PKGDIR and PORTAGE_TMPDIR from make.conf info in
134 the install profile if available.
135
136 23 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
137 Added code to build_kernel() and emerge_kernel_sources() in ArchTemplate
138 to handle installing the livecd kernel into the new system.
139
140 22 Mar 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
141 should emerge hotplug and coldplug before adding them to runlevel.
142
143 21 Mar 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
144 took chroot out of grub_install command.
145
146 21 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
147 Changed chroot wrapper code in spawn() to write the wrapper the python way
148 instead of the bash way to avoid quote conflicts. Added
149 'logfile=self._compile_logfile' to a number of spawn() calls. Added new
150 hash_password() function to GLIUtility. Remove command to 'rm /tmp/spawn.sh'
151 as it breaks the piping.
152
153 20 Mar 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
154 Added the amd64ArchitectureTemplate, mostly a copy of x86 without lilo.
155
156 20 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
157 Added _get_packages_to_emerge() to GLIArchitectureTemplate and calls in
158 stage1() and stage2(). Added 'origminor' parameter to GLIStorageDevice and
159 GLIInstallProfile.
160
161 19 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
162 Fixed a couple bugs in add_netmount() in GLIInstallProfile. spawn() outputs
163 to the actual tty8 with display_on_tty8 flag. Compile output logfile moved
164 into /mnt/gentoo in prepare_chroot()
165
166 18 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
167 Add sigunmask.c contributed by d_m (on freenode) to counteract python's
168 retarted behavior regarding threads and signals. Add code to convert MB/%/*
169 to start/end sectors
170
171 17 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
172 Add 2>&1 to cmd in spawn()
173
174 16 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
175 Modified GLIUtility.exitsuccess() to work with return value from
176 commands.getstatusoutput instead of os.waitpid(). spawn() automatically
177 creates wrapper script for commands run inside chroot so multiple commands
178 and redirection can be used. Change exitsuccess() back. Added 'chmod a+x'
179 for the generated script from spawn()
180
181 16 Mar 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
182 Removed default values for stage tarball URI and portage tree URI from
183 InstallProfile. These should be set by the FEs. also added services step to
184 ArchTemplate and coldplug/hotplug runlevels to the genkernel step.
185 Possibly fixed CC DHCP bug with -n. (thx agaffney)
186
187 14 Mar 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
188 Small fix for setting the default gateway. Also added feature to dialogfe.
189
190 7 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
191 Switched spawn() over to commands.getstatusoutput() instead of fork/waitpid
192
193 1 Mar 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
194 Fixed a bunch of true -> True typos. lots of em
195 only write new resolv.conf if there are dns servers listed.
196
197 1 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
198 Commented out 'display_on_tty8=True' in start_portmap()
199
200 18 Feb 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
201 added progress bar to dialogfe and fix logger bug in ArchTemplate.
202
203 18 Feb 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
204 Created GLISayWhat module. Renamed GLISayWhat to GLILocalization. Moved
205 lang parameter to __init__()
206
207 10 Feb 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
208 updates to TODO list.
209
210 6 Feb 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
211 Initial code for quickpkg GRP support. Fix loop to grab packages from
212 'emerge -p blah'
213
214 6 Feb 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
215 check for dhcp in the network stuff and emerge it if it is.
216 added quickpkg to TODO list
217
218 5 Feb 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
219 Changed the raising of 'warning' exceptions to a simple log of the error
220 so that the installer can continue.
221
222 3 Feb 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
223 Some big changes. First, changed most output to display_on_tty8.
224 Second, added log lines to all templates. Some smaller fixes such as typos.
225 Also did some cleanups of old commented lines.
226
227 1 Feb 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
228 Changed tty8 output to a fifo. Minor GLIStorageDevice fix thanks to BenUrban.
229 Undo change with fix. Escaping fix in GLIStorageDevice.py
230
231 31 Jan 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
232 more updates to TODO list. hopefully we'll soon start removing items instead
233 of adding them.
234
235 29 Jan 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
236 Changed the way GLIStorageDevice.get_max_sectors_for_resize() works
237
238 27 Jan 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
239 updated TODO list. (again)
240
241 25 Jan 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
242 changed output of portmap start to display_on_tty8.
243 fixed bootloader for udev and multiple kernels
244 fixed custom kernel config (again)
245
246 22 Jan 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
247 changed default value of CC._enable_ssh to True because this is smart.
248 added code to allow custom kernel .config. may be unstable and break. sorry.
249
250 21 Jan 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
251 partition() now waits until after it checks for partition flags before delete
252 the partitions :P
253
254 19 Jan 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
255 Updated TODO. swapon failure it temporarily not an error. swapon is an error
256 again. is_uri() check only performed on portage_tree_snapshot_uri if it isn't
257 blank.
258
259 19 Jan 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
260 Various fixes related to the add_users function. Still not yet finished.
261 Added things to the TODO list. Lets start using that!
262
263 18 Jan 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
264 Added code to x86Template to format newly created partitions. Also added
265 some error checking code. GLIStorageDevice passes 'minor' with data to
266 InstallProfile. Added partition() call back in ArchTemplate. Fixed NFS
267 mounting code.
268
269 18 Jan 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
270 Took out unnecessary setting of random livecd root password. the cd already
271 sets it randomly.
272
273 15 Jan 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
274 Took out an unneeded step from CC's run()
275
276 15 Jan 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
277 Attempt at detecting and adding windows partitions to lilo.
278
279 14 Jan 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
280 Added lilo code and cleaned up lilo code. also do_partitioning renamed to
281 partition. fixed misc exit_status => exitstatus typo.
282
283 11 Jan 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
284 Added basic code for resizing filesystems with pyparted. Fixed code for
285 resizing ntfs and ext2/3.
286
287 10 Jan 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
288 Fixed partition() in x86Template so that it scans through logicals and deletes
289 before deleting containing extended partition. Also clears partition table to
290 be safe before third pass.
291
292 08 Jan 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
293 Added mount_network_shares. not able to test it from this computer.
294 will test when i get back to school.
295 also added start_portmap to the client_controller as an always-do.
296 agaffney says this is needed for NFS mounts to work.
297
298 08 Jan 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
299 Partial rewrite of partitioning code in x86Template. No longer shells out to
300 parted to perform actions, now uses all pyparted calls. Code "works" in a
301 test, but still needs lots of TLC. Also modified tests/install.py to work
302 with x86Template and GLIClientConfiguration.
303
304 07 Jan 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
305 Initial move of partitioning code from ArchTemplate to x86Template.
306
307 07 Jan 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
308 Added grp_install and services to InstallProfile. forgot about the set_root_password
309
310 07 Jan 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
311 Fixed a few more edit_configs. fixed a chroot multicommand bug thanks to agaffney.
312 Test Install ran very well (skipping partitioning).
313
314 05 Jan 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
315 My mid-day update. rewrote mount_local_partitions for order of mounting. fixed prepare_chroot
316 rewrote configure_fstab and install_bootloader for new partition format. fixed a few _edit_configs.
317 some may still have eluded me.
318
319 05 Jan 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
320 Overhauled the entire ArchTemplate and did a lot of other misc fixes in order to test it.
321 Just finished mount_local_partitions in GLIArchitectureTemplate
322
323 05 Jan 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
324 Added get_num_sectors() to GLIStorageDevice.
325
326 04 Jan 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
327 GLIStorageDevice now tracks partition boundaries in sectors instead of cylinders.
328 Also now ignores <=100 sectors for free space. Removed remaining depends stuff
329 from GLIInstallProfile.
330
331 20 Dec 2004; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
332 GLIStorageDevice returns "unknown" instead of "" for get_type()
333
334 19 Dec 2004; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
335 Added get_extended_partition() to GLIStorageDevice. Rewrote get_logicals() to
336 actually work. Commented out resizability checking code for speed.
337
338 17 Dec 2004; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
339 Switched to using dumpe2fs to determine free space left in ext2/3 filesystem in
340 GLIStorageDevice at the suggestion of plors
341
342 10 Dec 2004; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
343 Added a function to GLIUtility to pull a value from a make.conf-style config
344 file. Minor type fix to GLIInstallProfile.py
345
346 09 Dec 2004; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
347 Added code in GLIArchitectureTemplate.py to write netmounts into fstab. Separated
348 network mounts from partition data structure in GLIInstallProfile
349
350 27 Nov 2004; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
351 Changed the way GLIStorageDevice.py determines the amount a ext2/3 filesystem
352 can be resized.
353
354 27 Oct 2004; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
355 Added some of the final functions to GLIInstallTemplate.
356 Yes this project is still active despite rare use of the Changelog!
357
358 11 Jun 2004; Nathaniel McCallum <npmccallum@gentoo.org>
359 Added the GLIPartitionTools.py file. This is a temporary insertion of
360 partitioning tools that will eventually go into their own package.
361
362 27 Mar 2004; Nathaniel McCallum <npmccallum@gentoo.org>
363 Added InstallProfileTODO.txt. Added GLIClientConfiguration.py (contains run-time
364 for the program). Added __init__(install_profile, client_configuration) to
365 GLI.InstallProfile. This sets install_profile and client_configuration once so as
366 to avoid constantly passing stuff every time we call a method.
367
368 26 Mar 2004; Nathaniel McCallum <npmccallum@gentoo.org>
369
370 Added another private method to GLI.InstallTemplate. _edit_config() modifies config
371 files without messing up all the other stuff in them. This will be used for making
372 changes to make.conf, rc.conf, /etc/conf.d/net, etc...
373
374 25 Mar 2004; Nathaniel McCallum <npmccallum@gentoo.org>
375
376 Added GLI.InstallTemplate framework. This is not yet functional. However, it does
377 have a few basic things. I added two private methods. One is _depends(). This
378 will be used for dependency checking (ie. unpacking a tarball requires that
379 partitioning has been done). The other is _exec_in_chroot(). This is the exact
380 same syntax as os.system(), however, instead of being run in the liveCD
381 environment, it runs in the chroot. This requires a bit of fork() magic, so I
382 isolated the code. Hope to work more this week to get this class formed...
383
384 14 Feb 2004; Eric Sammer <esammer@gentoo.org>
385
386 Added SAX parsing. Made GLI.InstallProfile a subclass of xml.sax.ContentHandler for
387 obvious reasons. Switched kernel_modules and users to be lists instead of tuples
388 to allow for easier modification (mutable, rather than immutable objects). Updated
389 existing pydoc and added more. Implemented body of GLI.InstallProfile.parse().
390 Cleaned file format of GLI.py a bit. Fixed all accessors to use self references.
391 Added initial unit test code.
392
393 9 Feb 2004; Eric Sammer <esammer@gentoo.org>
394
395 Added initial changelog. Setting up the basic structure of the CVS repository
396 for the project. Added the UML class diagram in docs. Added a skeletal GLI
397 python module. Added misc files such news, authors, etc.
