39
40 17 Apr 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
41 Update AUTHORS, NEWS, TODO. Added documentation to GLILogger.
42
43 17 Apr 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>

45 code.
46
47 16 Apr 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>

49 adding the new value to the end of the file.
50
51 15 Apr 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
52 Back. Did the docuementation thang for ArchTemplate and ClientConfiguration.
53 Also updated TODO list.
54
55 14 Apr 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
56 Use blackace's one-liner to add comments for all function for use with
57 pythondoc.
58
59 13 Apr 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
60 Moved 'end >= device_sectors' check out of loop to check for next partition's
61 start point (thanks to Marco Djukic). Fix >4 primary partitions on non-x86.
62 Partitioning code now tracks start/end of extended for placing logicals. End
63 point of logical is now adjusted along with start.
64
65 11 Apr 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
66 Finish overhaul of backend partitioning code. Fixed all bugs that stood in
67 the way of partitioning from a blank disk. Add int() around access to minor
68 key in partition information due to new partition code leaving them as float.
69
70 10 Apr 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
71 tidy_partitions() function in GLIStorageDevice. Tweaks to tidy code
72
73 9 Apr 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>

75
76 8 Apr 2005; Scott Myron <samyron@gentoo.org>
77 Added support for DHCP options and MAC addresses in the InstallProfile.
78
79 3 Apr 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>

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

208 10 Feb 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
209 updates to TODO list.
210
211 6 Feb 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
212 Initial code for quickpkg GRP support. Fix loop to grab packages from
213 'emerge -p blah'
214
215 6 Feb 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
216 check for dhcp in the network stuff and emerge it if it is.
217 added quickpkg to TODO list
218
219 5 Feb 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
220 Changed the raising of 'warning' exceptions to a simple log of the error
221 so that the installer can continue.
222
223 3 Feb 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
224 Some big changes. First, changed most output to display_on_tty8.
225 Second, added log lines to all templates. Some smaller fixes such as typos.
226 Also did some cleanups of old commented lines.
227
228 1 Feb 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
229 Changed tty8 output to a fifo. Minor GLIStorageDevice fix thanks to BenUrban.
230 Undo change with fix. Escaping fix in GLIStorageDevice.py
231
232 31 Jan 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
233 more updates to TODO list. hopefully we'll soon start removing items instead
234 of adding them.
235
236 29 Jan 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
237 Changed the way GLIStorageDevice.get_max_sectors_for_resize() works
238

240 updated TODO list. (again)
241
242 25 Jan 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>

245 fixed custom kernel config (again)
246
247 22 Jan 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
248 changed default value of CC._enable_ssh to True because this is smart.
249 added code to allow custom kernel .config. may be unstable and break. sorry.
250
251 21 Jan 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
252 partition() now waits until after it checks for partition flags before delete
253 the partitions :P
254
255 19 Jan 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
256 Updated TODO. swapon failure it temporarily not an error. swapon is an error
257 again. is_uri() check only performed on portage_tree_snapshot_uri if it isn't
258 blank.
259
260 19 Jan 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
261 Various fixes related to the add_users function. Still not yet finished.
262 Added things to the TODO list. Lets start using that!
263
264 18 Jan 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
265 Added code to x86Template to format newly created partitions. Also added
266 some error checking code. GLIStorageDevice passes 'minor' with data to
267 InstallProfile. Added partition() call back in ArchTemplate. Fixed NFS
268 mounting code.
269
270 18 Jan 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
271 Took out unnecessary setting of random livecd root password. the cd already
272 sets it randomly.
273
274 15 Jan 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
275 Took out an unneeded step from CC's run()
276
277 15 Jan 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
278 Attempt at detecting and adding windows partitions to lilo.
279
280 14 Jan 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
281 Added lilo code and cleaned up lilo code. also do_partitioning renamed to
282 partition. fixed misc exit_status => exitstatus typo.
283
284 11 Jan 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
285 Added basic code for resizing filesystems with pyparted. Fixed code for
286 resizing ntfs and ext2/3.
287
288 10 Jan 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
289 Fixed partition() in x86Template so that it scans through logicals and deletes
290 before deleting containing extended partition. Also clears partition table to
291 be safe before third pass.
292
293 08 Jan 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
294 Added mount_network_shares. not able to test it from this computer.
295 will test when i get back to school.
296 also added start_portmap to the client_controller as an always-do.
297 agaffney says this is needed for NFS mounts to work.
298
299 08 Jan 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
300 Partial rewrite of partitioning code in x86Template. No longer shells out to
301 parted to perform actions, now uses all pyparted calls. Code "works" in a
302 test, but still needs lots of TLC. Also modified tests/install.py to work
303 with x86Template and GLIClientConfiguration.
304
305 07 Jan 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
306 Initial move of partitioning code from ArchTemplate to x86Template.
307
308 07 Jan 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
309 Added grp_install and services to InstallProfile. forgot about the set_root_password
310
311 07 Jan 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
312 Fixed a few more edit_configs. fixed a chroot multicommand bug thanks to agaffney.
313 Test Install ran very well (skipping partitioning).
314
315 05 Jan 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
316 My mid-day update. rewrote mount_local_partitions for order of mounting. fixed prepare_chroot
317 rewrote configure_fstab and install_bootloader for new partition format. fixed a few _edit_configs.
318 some may still have eluded me.
319
320 05 Jan 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
321 Overhauled the entire ArchTemplate and did a lot of other misc fixes in order to test it.
322 Just finished mount_local_partitions in GLIArchitectureTemplate
323
324 05 Jan 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
325 Added get_num_sectors() to GLIStorageDevice.
326
327 04 Jan 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
328 GLIStorageDevice now tracks partition boundaries in sectors instead of cylinders.
329 Also now ignores <=100 sectors for free space. Removed remaining depends stuff
330 from GLIInstallProfile.
331
332 20 Dec 2004; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
333 GLIStorageDevice returns "unknown" instead of "" for get_type()
334
335 19 Dec 2004; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
336 Added get_extended_partition() to GLIStorageDevice. Rewrote get_logicals() to
337 actually work. Commented out resizability checking code for speed.
338
339 17 Dec 2004; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
340 Switched to using dumpe2fs to determine free space left in ext2/3 filesystem in
341 GLIStorageDevice at the suggestion of plors
342
343 10 Dec 2004; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
344 Added a function to GLIUtility to pull a value from a make.conf-style config
345 file. Minor type fix to GLIInstallProfile.py
346
347 09 Dec 2004; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
348 Added code in GLIArchitectureTemplate.py to write netmounts into fstab. Separated
349 network mounts from partition data structure in GLIInstallProfile
350
351 27 Nov 2004; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
352 Changed the way GLIStorageDevice.py determines the amount a ext2/3 filesystem
353 can be resized.
354
355 27 Oct 2004; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
356 Added some of the final functions to GLIInstallTemplate.
357 Yes this project is still active despite rare use of the Changelog!
358
359 11 Jun 2004; Nathaniel McCallum <npmccallum@gentoo.org>
360 Added the GLIPartitionTools.py file. This is a temporary insertion of
361 partitioning tools that will eventually go into their own package.
362
363 27 Mar 2004; Nathaniel McCallum <npmccallum@gentoo.org>
364 Added InstallProfileTODO.txt. Added GLIClientConfiguration.py (contains run-time
365 for the program). Added __init__(install_profile, client_configuration) to
366 GLI.InstallProfile. This sets install_profile and client_configuration once so as
367 to avoid constantly passing stuff every time we call a method.
368
369 26 Mar 2004; Nathaniel McCallum <npmccallum@gentoo.org>
370
371 Added another private method to GLI.InstallTemplate. _edit_config() modifies config
372 files without messing up all the other stuff in them. This will be used for making
373 changes to make.conf, rc.conf, /etc/conf.d/net, etc...
374
375 25 Mar 2004; Nathaniel McCallum <npmccallum@gentoo.org>
376
377 Added GLI.InstallTemplate framework. This is not yet functional. However, it does
378 have a few basic things. I added two private methods. One is _depends(). This
379 will be used for dependency checking (ie. unpacking a tarball requires that
380 partitioning has been done). The other is _exec_in_chroot(). This is the exact
381 same syntax as os.system(), however, instead of being run in the liveCD
382 environment, it runs in the chroot. This requires a bit of fork() magic, so I
383 isolated the code. Hope to work more this week to get this class formed...
384
385 14 Feb 2004; Eric Sammer <esammer@gentoo.org>
386
387 Added SAX parsing. Made GLI.InstallProfile a subclass of xml.sax.ContentHandler for
388 obvious reasons. Switched kernel_modules and users to be lists instead of tuples
389 to allow for easier modification (mutable, rather than immutable objects). Updated
390 existing pydoc and added more. Implemented body of GLI.InstallProfile.parse().
391 Cleaned file format of GLI.py a bit. Fixed all accessors to use self references.
392 Added initial unit test code.
393
394 9 Feb 2004; Eric Sammer <esammer@gentoo.org>
395
396 Added initial changelog. Setting up the basic structure of the CVS repository
397 for the project. Added the UML class diagram in docs. Added a skeletal GLI
398 python module. Added misc files such news, authors, etc.
