43
44 17 Apr 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
45 Update AUTHORS, NEWS, TODO. Added documentation to GLILogger.
46
47 17 Apr 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>

49 code.
50
51 16 Apr 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>

53 adding the new value to the end of the file.
54
55 15 Apr 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
56 Back. Did the docuementation thang for ArchTemplate and ClientConfiguration.
57 Also updated TODO list.
58
59 14 Apr 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
60 Use blackace's one-liner to add comments for all function for use with
61 pythondoc.
62
63 13 Apr 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
64 Moved 'end >= device_sectors' check out of loop to check for next partition's
65 start point (thanks to Marco Djukic). Fix >4 primary partitions on non-x86.
66 Partitioning code now tracks start/end of extended for placing logicals. End
67 point of logical is now adjusted along with start.
68
69 11 Apr 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
70 Finish overhaul of backend partitioning code. Fixed all bugs that stood in
71 the way of partitioning from a blank disk. Add int() around access to minor
72 key in partition information due to new partition code leaving them as float.
73
74 10 Apr 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
75 tidy_partitions() function in GLIStorageDevice. Tweaks to tidy code
76

81 Added support for DHCP options and MAC addresses in the InstallProfile.
82
83 3 Apr 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
84 Changed mountopts check to work for blank and whitespace. Pipe emerge through
85 sed to properly strip out junk.
86
87 2 Apr 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
88 fixed the way set_timezone works. added hotplug/coldplug for livecd-kernel
89 added --emptytree to stage2. fixed ethx not being added to runlevel defalt.
90
91 31 Mar 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
92 Fixed indent problem in GLICController
93
94 30 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
95 Check for disklabel type "loop" and use the device name without a minor.
96
97 29 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
98 Remove /tmp/compile_output.log and /var/log/install.log when install is
99 complete. Added code to (hopefully) keep 2nd thread running after install.
100 Patch from zahna for extra arguments to the kernel. Patch from zahna to add
101 get_eth_info() function. Remove most of content in amd64ArchTemplate and
102 make it inherit from x86Archtemplate. kernel_args -> bootloader_kernel_args
103
104 28 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
105 Added 'append_log=True' to all spawn() calls using logfile=. Append to log
106 when unpacking tarball.
107
108 28 Mar 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
109 rewrote filesystem_tools. looks like it works so ripping out all the old
110 filesystem_tools code.
111
112 26 Mar 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
113 Changed the print statements to logging in the partitioning BE code.
114 the logger may need to be imported to the x86archtemplate. unknown yet.
115 Added the finishing_cleanup function.
116 added a fix to the logger from BenUrban
117
118 25 Mar 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
119 changed InstallProfile to remove is_uri check on kernel, stage, and portage
120 URIs. The blank uri check has been commented out.
121 ripped out error checking of set_services. this is done by _add_to_runlevel.
122
123 25 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
124 set_stage_tarball_uri() doesn't raise an exception on a blank string.
125
126 24 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
127 GRP-ish quickpkg code pulls PKGDIR and PORTAGE_TMPDIR from make.conf info in
128 the install profile if available. Commented out spawn() debugging prints
129
130 23 Mar 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
131 small changes to setup_network_post. moved adding to runlevel of net.x to
132 after the device gets symlinked. added domainname runlevel command.
133
134 23 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
135 minor fix (hopefully) to livecd-kernel code. Removed call to mkvardb in
136 livecd-kernel code as it's now done by catalyst. Switch _emerge() call to
137 spawn() call in livecd-kernel code to pass environment variables.
138 livecd-kernel code pulls PKGDIR and PORTAGE_TMPDIR from make.conf info in
139 the install profile if available.
140
141 23 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
142 Added code to build_kernel() and emerge_kernel_sources() in ArchTemplate
143 to handle installing the livecd kernel into the new system.
144
145 22 Mar 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
146 should emerge hotplug and coldplug before adding them to runlevel.
147
148 21 Mar 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
149 took chroot out of grub_install command.
150
151 21 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
152 Changed chroot wrapper code in spawn() to write the wrapper the python way
153 instead of the bash way to avoid quote conflicts. Added
154 'logfile=self._compile_logfile' to a number of spawn() calls. Added new
155 hash_password() function to GLIUtility. Remove command to 'rm /tmp/spawn.sh'
156 as it breaks the piping.
157
158 20 Mar 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
159 Added the amd64ArchitectureTemplate, mostly a copy of x86 without lilo.
160
161 20 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
162 Added _get_packages_to_emerge() to GLIArchitectureTemplate and calls in
163 stage1() and stage2(). Added 'origminor' parameter to GLIStorageDevice and
164 GLIInstallProfile.
165
166 19 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
167 Fixed a couple bugs in add_netmount() in GLIInstallProfile. spawn() outputs
168 to the actual tty8 with display_on_tty8 flag. Compile output logfile moved
169 into /mnt/gentoo in prepare_chroot()
170
171 18 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
172 Add sigunmask.c contributed by d_m (on freenode) to counteract python's
173 retarted behavior regarding threads and signals. Add code to convert MB/%/*
174 to start/end sectors
175
176 17 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
177 Add 2>&1 to cmd in spawn()
178
179 16 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
180 Modified GLIUtility.exitsuccess() to work with return value from
181 commands.getstatusoutput instead of os.waitpid(). spawn() automatically
182 creates wrapper script for commands run inside chroot so multiple commands
183 and redirection can be used. Change exitsuccess() back. Added 'chmod a+x'
184 for the generated script from spawn()
185
186 16 Mar 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
187 Removed default values for stage tarball URI and portage tree URI from
188 InstallProfile. These should be set by the FEs. also added services step to
189 ArchTemplate and coldplug/hotplug runlevels to the genkernel step.
190 Possibly fixed CC DHCP bug with -n. (thx agaffney)
191
192 14 Mar 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
193 Small fix for setting the default gateway. Also added feature to dialogfe.
194
195 7 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
196 Switched spawn() over to commands.getstatusoutput() instead of fork/waitpid
197
198 1 Mar 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
199 Fixed a bunch of true -> True typos. lots of em
200 only write new resolv.conf if there are dns servers listed.
201
202 1 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
203 Commented out 'display_on_tty8=True' in start_portmap()
204
205 18 Feb 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
206 added progress bar to dialogfe and fix logger bug in ArchTemplate.
207
208 18 Feb 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
209 Created GLISayWhat module. Renamed GLISayWhat to GLILocalization. Moved
210 lang parameter to __init__()
211
212 10 Feb 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
213 updates to TODO list.
214
215 6 Feb 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
216 Initial code for quickpkg GRP support. Fix loop to grab packages from
217 'emerge -p blah'
218
219 6 Feb 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
220 check for dhcp in the network stuff and emerge it if it is.
221 added quickpkg to TODO list
222
223 5 Feb 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
224 Changed the raising of 'warning' exceptions to a simple log of the error
225 so that the installer can continue.
226
227 3 Feb 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
228 Some big changes. First, changed most output to display_on_tty8.
229 Second, added log lines to all templates. Some smaller fixes such as typos.
230 Also did some cleanups of old commented lines.
231
232 1 Feb 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
233 Changed tty8 output to a fifo. Minor GLIStorageDevice fix thanks to BenUrban.
234 Undo change with fix. Escaping fix in GLIStorageDevice.py
235
236 31 Jan 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
237 more updates to TODO list. hopefully we'll soon start removing items instead
238 of adding them.
239
240 29 Jan 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
241 Changed the way GLIStorageDevice.get_max_sectors_for_resize() works
242
243 27 Jan 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
244 updated TODO list. (again)
245
246 25 Jan 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>

248 fixed bootloader for udev and multiple kernels
249 fixed custom kernel config (again)
250
251 22 Jan 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
252 changed default value of CC._enable_ssh to True because this is smart.
253 added code to allow custom kernel .config. may be unstable and break. sorry.
254
255 21 Jan 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
256 partition() now waits until after it checks for partition flags before delete
257 the partitions :P
258
259 19 Jan 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
260 Updated TODO. swapon failure it temporarily not an error. swapon is an error
261 again. is_uri() check only performed on portage_tree_snapshot_uri if it isn't
262 blank.
263
264 19 Jan 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
265 Various fixes related to the add_users function. Still not yet finished.
266 Added things to the TODO list. Lets start using that!
267
268 18 Jan 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
269 Added code to x86Template to format newly created partitions. Also added
270 some error checking code. GLIStorageDevice passes 'minor' with data to
271 InstallProfile. Added partition() call back in ArchTemplate. Fixed NFS
272 mounting code.
273
274 18 Jan 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
275 Took out unnecessary setting of random livecd root password. the cd already
276 sets it randomly.
277
278 15 Jan 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
279 Took out an unneeded step from CC's run()
280
281 15 Jan 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
282 Attempt at detecting and adding windows partitions to lilo.
283
284 14 Jan 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
285 Added lilo code and cleaned up lilo code. also do_partitioning renamed to
286 partition. fixed misc exit_status => exitstatus typo.
287
288 11 Jan 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
289 Added basic code for resizing filesystems with pyparted. Fixed code for
290 resizing ntfs and ext2/3.
291
292 10 Jan 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
293 Fixed partition() in x86Template so that it scans through logicals and deletes
294 before deleting containing extended partition. Also clears partition table to
295 be safe before third pass.
296
297 08 Jan 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
298 Added mount_network_shares. not able to test it from this computer.
299 will test when i get back to school.
300 also added start_portmap to the client_controller as an always-do.
301 agaffney says this is needed for NFS mounts to work.
302
303 08 Jan 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
304 Partial rewrite of partitioning code in x86Template. No longer shells out to
305 parted to perform actions, now uses all pyparted calls. Code "works" in a
306 test, but still needs lots of TLC. Also modified tests/install.py to work
307 with x86Template and GLIClientConfiguration.
308
309 07 Jan 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
310 Initial move of partitioning code from ArchTemplate to x86Template.
311
312 07 Jan 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
313 Added grp_install and services to InstallProfile. forgot about the set_root_password
314
315 07 Jan 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
316 Fixed a few more edit_configs. fixed a chroot multicommand bug thanks to agaffney.
317 Test Install ran very well (skipping partitioning).
318
319 05 Jan 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
320 My mid-day update. rewrote mount_local_partitions for order of mounting. fixed prepare_chroot
321 rewrote configure_fstab and install_bootloader for new partition format. fixed a few _edit_configs.
322 some may still have eluded me.
323
324 05 Jan 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
325 Overhauled the entire ArchTemplate and did a lot of other misc fixes in order to test it.
326 Just finished mount_local_partitions in GLIArchitectureTemplate
327
328 05 Jan 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
329 Added get_num_sectors() to GLIStorageDevice.
330
331 04 Jan 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
332 GLIStorageDevice now tracks partition boundaries in sectors instead of cylinders.
333 Also now ignores <=100 sectors for free space. Removed remaining depends stuff
334 from GLIInstallProfile.
335
336 20 Dec 2004; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
337 GLIStorageDevice returns "unknown" instead of "" for get_type()
338
339 19 Dec 2004; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
340 Added get_extended_partition() to GLIStorageDevice. Rewrote get_logicals() to
341 actually work. Commented out resizability checking code for speed.
342
343 17 Dec 2004; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
344 Switched to using dumpe2fs to determine free space left in ext2/3 filesystem in
345 GLIStorageDevice at the suggestion of plors
346
347 10 Dec 2004; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
348 Added a function to GLIUtility to pull a value from a make.conf-style config
349 file. Minor type fix to GLIInstallProfile.py
350
351 09 Dec 2004; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
352 Added code in GLIArchitectureTemplate.py to write netmounts into fstab. Separated
353 network mounts from partition data structure in GLIInstallProfile
354
355 27 Nov 2004; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
356 Changed the way GLIStorageDevice.py determines the amount a ext2/3 filesystem
357 can be resized.
358
359 27 Oct 2004; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
360 Added some of the final functions to GLIInstallTemplate.
361 Yes this project is still active despite rare use of the Changelog!
362
363 11 Jun 2004; Nathaniel McCallum <npmccallum@gentoo.org>
364 Added the GLIPartitionTools.py file. This is a temporary insertion of
365 partitioning tools that will eventually go into their own package.
366
367 27 Mar 2004; Nathaniel McCallum <npmccallum@gentoo.org>
368 Added InstallProfileTODO.txt. Added GLIClientConfiguration.py (contains run-time
369 for the program). Added __init__(install_profile, client_configuration) to
370 GLI.InstallProfile. This sets install_profile and client_configuration once so as
371 to avoid constantly passing stuff every time we call a method.
372
373 26 Mar 2004; Nathaniel McCallum <npmccallum@gentoo.org>
374
375 Added another private method to GLI.InstallTemplate. _edit_config() modifies config
376 files without messing up all the other stuff in them. This will be used for making
377 changes to make.conf, rc.conf, /etc/conf.d/net, etc...
378
379 25 Mar 2004; Nathaniel McCallum <npmccallum@gentoo.org>
380
381 Added GLI.InstallTemplate framework. This is not yet functional. However, it does
382 have a few basic things. I added two private methods. One is _depends(). This
383 will be used for dependency checking (ie. unpacking a tarball requires that
384 partitioning has been done). The other is _exec_in_chroot(). This is the exact
385 same syntax as os.system(), however, instead of being run in the liveCD
386 environment, it runs in the chroot. This requires a bit of fork() magic, so I
387 isolated the code. Hope to work more this week to get this class formed...
388
389 14 Feb 2004; Eric Sammer <esammer@gentoo.org>
390
391 Added SAX parsing. Made GLI.InstallProfile a subclass of xml.sax.ContentHandler for
392 obvious reasons. Switched kernel_modules and users to be lists instead of tuples
393 to allow for easier modification (mutable, rather than immutable objects). Updated
394 existing pydoc and added more. Implemented body of GLI.InstallProfile.parse().
395 Cleaned file format of GLI.py a bit. Fixed all accessors to use self references.
396 Added initial unit test code.
397
398 9 Feb 2004; Eric Sammer <esammer@gentoo.org>
399
400 Added initial changelog. Setting up the basic structure of the CVS repository
401 for the project. Added the UML class diagram in docs. Added a skeletal GLI
402 python module. Added misc files such news, authors, etc.
