48 Update AUTHORS, NEWS, TODO. Added documentation to GLILogger.
49
50 17 Apr 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>

52 code.
53
54 16 Apr 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>

56 adding the new value to the end of the file.
57
58 15 Apr 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
59 Back. Did the docuementation thang for ArchTemplate and ClientConfiguration.
60 Also updated TODO list.
61
62 14 Apr 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>

64 pythondoc.
65
66 13 Apr 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
67 Moved 'end >= device_sectors' check out of loop to check for next partition's
68 start point (thanks to Marco Djukic). Fix >4 primary partitions on non-x86.
69 Partitioning code now tracks start/end of extended for placing logicals. End
70 point of logical is now adjusted along with start.
71
72 11 Apr 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
73 Finish overhaul of backend partitioning code. Fixed all bugs that stood in
74 the way of partitioning from a blank disk. Add int() around access to minor
75 key in partition information due to new partition code leaving them as float.
76
77 10 Apr 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
78 tidy_partitions() function in GLIStorageDevice. Tweaks to tidy code
79

85
86 3 Apr 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
87 Changed mountopts check to work for blank and whitespace. Pipe emerge through
88 sed to properly strip out junk.
89
90 2 Apr 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
91 fixed the way set_timezone works. added hotplug/coldplug for livecd-kernel
92 added --emptytree to stage2. fixed ethx not being added to runlevel defalt.
93
94 31 Mar 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
95 Fixed indent problem in GLICController
96
97 30 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
98 Check for disklabel type "loop" and use the device name without a minor.
99
100 29 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
101 Remove /tmp/compile_output.log and /var/log/install.log when install is
102 complete. Added code to (hopefully) keep 2nd thread running after install.
103 Patch from zahna for extra arguments to the kernel. Patch from zahna to add
104 get_eth_info() function. Remove most of content in amd64ArchTemplate and
105 make it inherit from x86Archtemplate. kernel_args -> bootloader_kernel_args
106
107 28 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
108 Added 'append_log=True' to all spawn() calls using logfile=. Append to log
109 when unpacking tarball.
110
111 28 Mar 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
112 rewrote filesystem_tools. looks like it works so ripping out all the old
113 filesystem_tools code.
114
115 26 Mar 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
116 Changed the print statements to logging in the partitioning BE code.
117 the logger may need to be imported to the x86archtemplate. unknown yet.
118 Added the finishing_cleanup function.
119 added a fix to the logger from BenUrban
120
121 25 Mar 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
122 changed InstallProfile to remove is_uri check on kernel, stage, and portage
123 URIs. The blank uri check has been commented out.
124 ripped out error checking of set_services. this is done by _add_to_runlevel.
125
126 25 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
127 set_stage_tarball_uri() doesn't raise an exception on a blank string.
128
129 24 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
130 GRP-ish quickpkg code pulls PKGDIR and PORTAGE_TMPDIR from make.conf info in
131 the install profile if available. Commented out spawn() debugging prints
132
133 23 Mar 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
134 small changes to setup_network_post. moved adding to runlevel of net.x to
135 after the device gets symlinked. added domainname runlevel command.
136
137 23 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
138 minor fix (hopefully) to livecd-kernel code. Removed call to mkvardb in
139 livecd-kernel code as it's now done by catalyst. Switch _emerge() call to
140 spawn() call in livecd-kernel code to pass environment variables.
141 livecd-kernel code pulls PKGDIR and PORTAGE_TMPDIR from make.conf info in
142 the install profile if available.
143
144 23 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
145 Added code to build_kernel() and emerge_kernel_sources() in ArchTemplate
146 to handle installing the livecd kernel into the new system.
147
148 22 Mar 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
149 should emerge hotplug and coldplug before adding them to runlevel.
150
151 21 Mar 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
152 took chroot out of grub_install command.
153
154 21 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
155 Changed chroot wrapper code in spawn() to write the wrapper the python way
156 instead of the bash way to avoid quote conflicts. Added
157 'logfile=self._compile_logfile' to a number of spawn() calls. Added new
158 hash_password() function to GLIUtility. Remove command to 'rm /tmp/spawn.sh'
159 as it breaks the piping.
160
161 20 Mar 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
162 Added the amd64ArchitectureTemplate, mostly a copy of x86 without lilo.
163
164 20 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
165 Added _get_packages_to_emerge() to GLIArchitectureTemplate and calls in
166 stage1() and stage2(). Added 'origminor' parameter to GLIStorageDevice and
167 GLIInstallProfile.
168
169 19 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
170 Fixed a couple bugs in add_netmount() in GLIInstallProfile. spawn() outputs
171 to the actual tty8 with display_on_tty8 flag. Compile output logfile moved
172 into /mnt/gentoo in prepare_chroot()
173
174 18 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
175 Add sigunmask.c contributed by d_m (on freenode) to counteract python's
176 retarted behavior regarding threads and signals. Add code to convert MB/%/*
177 to start/end sectors
178
179 17 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
180 Add 2>&1 to cmd in spawn()
181
182 16 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
183 Modified GLIUtility.exitsuccess() to work with return value from
184 commands.getstatusoutput instead of os.waitpid(). spawn() automatically
185 creates wrapper script for commands run inside chroot so multiple commands
186 and redirection can be used. Change exitsuccess() back. Added 'chmod a+x'
187 for the generated script from spawn()
188
189 16 Mar 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
190 Removed default values for stage tarball URI and portage tree URI from
191 InstallProfile. These should be set by the FEs. also added services step to
192 ArchTemplate and coldplug/hotplug runlevels to the genkernel step.
193 Possibly fixed CC DHCP bug with -n. (thx agaffney)
194
195 14 Mar 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
196 Small fix for setting the default gateway. Also added feature to dialogfe.
197
198 7 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
199 Switched spawn() over to commands.getstatusoutput() instead of fork/waitpid
200
201 1 Mar 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
202 Fixed a bunch of true -> True typos. lots of em
203 only write new resolv.conf if there are dns servers listed.
204
205 1 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
206 Commented out 'display_on_tty8=True' in start_portmap()
207
208 18 Feb 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
209 added progress bar to dialogfe and fix logger bug in ArchTemplate.
210
211 18 Feb 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
212 Created GLISayWhat module. Renamed GLISayWhat to GLILocalization. Moved
213 lang parameter to __init__()
214
215 10 Feb 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
216 updates to TODO list.
217
218 6 Feb 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
219 Initial code for quickpkg GRP support. Fix loop to grab packages from
220 'emerge -p blah'
221
222 6 Feb 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
223 check for dhcp in the network stuff and emerge it if it is.
224 added quickpkg to TODO list
225
226 5 Feb 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
227 Changed the raising of 'warning' exceptions to a simple log of the error
228 so that the installer can continue.
229
230 3 Feb 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
231 Some big changes. First, changed most output to display_on_tty8.
232 Second, added log lines to all templates. Some smaller fixes such as typos.
233 Also did some cleanups of old commented lines.
234
235 1 Feb 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
236 Changed tty8 output to a fifo. Minor GLIStorageDevice fix thanks to BenUrban.
237 Undo change with fix. Escaping fix in GLIStorageDevice.py
238
239 31 Jan 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
240 more updates to TODO list. hopefully we'll soon start removing items instead
241 of adding them.
242
243 29 Jan 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
244 Changed the way GLIStorageDevice.get_max_sectors_for_resize() works
245
246 27 Jan 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
247 updated TODO list. (again)
248
249 25 Jan 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
250 changed output of portmap start to display_on_tty8.
251 fixed bootloader for udev and multiple kernels
252 fixed custom kernel config (again)
253
254 22 Jan 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
255 changed default value of CC._enable_ssh to True because this is smart.
256 added code to allow custom kernel .config. may be unstable and break. sorry.
257
258 21 Jan 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
259 partition() now waits until after it checks for partition flags before delete
260 the partitions :P
261
262 19 Jan 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
263 Updated TODO. swapon failure it temporarily not an error. swapon is an error
264 again. is_uri() check only performed on portage_tree_snapshot_uri if it isn't
265 blank.
266
267 19 Jan 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
268 Various fixes related to the add_users function. Still not yet finished.
269 Added things to the TODO list. Lets start using that!
270
271 18 Jan 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
272 Added code to x86Template to format newly created partitions. Also added
273 some error checking code. GLIStorageDevice passes 'minor' with data to
274 InstallProfile. Added partition() call back in ArchTemplate. Fixed NFS
275 mounting code.
276
277 18 Jan 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
278 Took out unnecessary setting of random livecd root password. the cd already
279 sets it randomly.
280
281 15 Jan 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
282 Took out an unneeded step from CC's run()
283
284 15 Jan 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
285 Attempt at detecting and adding windows partitions to lilo.
286
287 14 Jan 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
288 Added lilo code and cleaned up lilo code. also do_partitioning renamed to
289 partition. fixed misc exit_status => exitstatus typo.
290
291 11 Jan 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
292 Added basic code for resizing filesystems with pyparted. Fixed code for
293 resizing ntfs and ext2/3.
294
295 10 Jan 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
296 Fixed partition() in x86Template so that it scans through logicals and deletes
297 before deleting containing extended partition. Also clears partition table to
298 be safe before third pass.
299
300 08 Jan 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
301 Added mount_network_shares. not able to test it from this computer.
302 will test when i get back to school.
303 also added start_portmap to the client_controller as an always-do.
304 agaffney says this is needed for NFS mounts to work.
305
306 08 Jan 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
307 Partial rewrite of partitioning code in x86Template. No longer shells out to
308 parted to perform actions, now uses all pyparted calls. Code "works" in a
309 test, but still needs lots of TLC. Also modified tests/install.py to work
310 with x86Template and GLIClientConfiguration.
311
312 07 Jan 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
313 Initial move of partitioning code from ArchTemplate to x86Template.
314
315 07 Jan 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
316 Added grp_install and services to InstallProfile. forgot about the set_root_password
317
318 07 Jan 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
319 Fixed a few more edit_configs. fixed a chroot multicommand bug thanks to agaffney.
320 Test Install ran very well (skipping partitioning).
321
322 05 Jan 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
323 My mid-day update. rewrote mount_local_partitions for order of mounting. fixed prepare_chroot
324 rewrote configure_fstab and install_bootloader for new partition format. fixed a few _edit_configs.
325 some may still have eluded me.
326
327 05 Jan 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
328 Overhauled the entire ArchTemplate and did a lot of other misc fixes in order to test it.
329 Just finished mount_local_partitions in GLIArchitectureTemplate
330
331 05 Jan 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
332 Added get_num_sectors() to GLIStorageDevice.
333
334 04 Jan 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
335 GLIStorageDevice now tracks partition boundaries in sectors instead of cylinders.
336 Also now ignores <=100 sectors for free space. Removed remaining depends stuff
337 from GLIInstallProfile.
338
339 20 Dec 2004; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
340 GLIStorageDevice returns "unknown" instead of "" for get_type()
341
342 19 Dec 2004; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
343 Added get_extended_partition() to GLIStorageDevice. Rewrote get_logicals() to
344 actually work. Commented out resizability checking code for speed.
345
346 17 Dec 2004; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
347 Switched to using dumpe2fs to determine free space left in ext2/3 filesystem in
348 GLIStorageDevice at the suggestion of plors
349
350 10 Dec 2004; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
351 Added a function to GLIUtility to pull a value from a make.conf-style config
352 file. Minor type fix to GLIInstallProfile.py
353
354 09 Dec 2004; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
355 Added code in GLIArchitectureTemplate.py to write netmounts into fstab. Separated
356 network mounts from partition data structure in GLIInstallProfile
357
358 27 Nov 2004; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
359 Changed the way GLIStorageDevice.py determines the amount a ext2/3 filesystem
360 can be resized.
361
362 27 Oct 2004; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
363 Added some of the final functions to GLIInstallTemplate.
364 Yes this project is still active despite rare use of the Changelog!
365
366 11 Jun 2004; Nathaniel McCallum <npmccallum@gentoo.org>
367 Added the GLIPartitionTools.py file. This is a temporary insertion of
368 partitioning tools that will eventually go into their own package.
369
370 27 Mar 2004; Nathaniel McCallum <npmccallum@gentoo.org>
371 Added InstallProfileTODO.txt. Added GLIClientConfiguration.py (contains run-time
372 for the program). Added __init__(install_profile, client_configuration) to
373 GLI.InstallProfile. This sets install_profile and client_configuration once so as
374 to avoid constantly passing stuff every time we call a method.
375
376 26 Mar 2004; Nathaniel McCallum <npmccallum@gentoo.org>
377
378 Added another private method to GLI.InstallTemplate. _edit_config() modifies config
379 files without messing up all the other stuff in them. This will be used for making
380 changes to make.conf, rc.conf, /etc/conf.d/net, etc...
381
382 25 Mar 2004; Nathaniel McCallum <npmccallum@gentoo.org>
383
384 Added GLI.InstallTemplate framework. This is not yet functional. However, it does
385 have a few basic things. I added two private methods. One is _depends(). This
386 will be used for dependency checking (ie. unpacking a tarball requires that
387 partitioning has been done). The other is _exec_in_chroot(). This is the exact
388 same syntax as os.system(), however, instead of being run in the liveCD
389 environment, it runs in the chroot. This requires a bit of fork() magic, so I
390 isolated the code. Hope to work more this week to get this class formed...
391
392 14 Feb 2004; Eric Sammer <esammer@gentoo.org>
393
394 Added SAX parsing. Made GLI.InstallProfile a subclass of xml.sax.ContentHandler for
395 obvious reasons. Switched kernel_modules and users to be lists instead of tuples
396 to allow for easier modification (mutable, rather than immutable objects). Updated
397 existing pydoc and added more. Implemented body of GLI.InstallProfile.parse().
398 Cleaned file format of GLI.py a bit. Fixed all accessors to use self references.
399 Added initial unit test code.
400
401 9 Feb 2004; Eric Sammer <esammer@gentoo.org>
402
403 Added initial changelog. Setting up the basic structure of the CVS repository
404 for the project. Added the UML class diagram in docs. Added a skeletal GLI
405 python module. Added misc files such news, authors, etc.
