61
62 16 Apr 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>

72 pythondoc.
73
74 13 Apr 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
75 Moved 'end >= device_sectors' check out of loop to check for next partition's
76 start point (thanks to Marco Djukic). Fix >4 primary partitions on non-x86.
77 Partitioning code now tracks start/end of extended for placing logicals. End
78 point of logical is now adjusted along with start.
79
80 11 Apr 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
81 Finish overhaul of backend partitioning code. Fixed all bugs that stood in
82 the way of partitioning from a blank disk. Add int() around access to minor
83 key in partition information due to new partition code leaving them as float.
84
85 10 Apr 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
86 tidy_partitions() function in GLIStorageDevice. Tweaks to tidy code
87
88 9 Apr 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>

90
91 8 Apr 2005; Scott Myron <samyron@gentoo.org>
92 Added support for DHCP options and MAC addresses in the InstallProfile.
93
94 3 Apr 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
95 Changed mountopts check to work for blank and whitespace. Pipe emerge through
96 sed to properly strip out junk.
97
98 2 Apr 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
99 fixed the way set_timezone works. added hotplug/coldplug for livecd-kernel
100 added --emptytree to stage2. fixed ethx not being added to runlevel defalt.
101
102 31 Mar 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
103 Fixed indent problem in GLICController
104
105 30 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
106 Check for disklabel type "loop" and use the device name without a minor.
107
108 29 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
109 Remove /tmp/compile_output.log and /var/log/install.log when install is
110 complete. Added code to (hopefully) keep 2nd thread running after install.
111 Patch from zahna for extra arguments to the kernel. Patch from zahna to add
112 get_eth_info() function. Remove most of content in amd64ArchTemplate and
113 make it inherit from x86Archtemplate. kernel_args -> bootloader_kernel_args
114
115 28 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
116 Added 'append_log=True' to all spawn() calls using logfile=. Append to log
117 when unpacking tarball.
118
119 28 Mar 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
120 rewrote filesystem_tools. looks like it works so ripping out all the old
121 filesystem_tools code.
122
123 26 Mar 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
124 Changed the print statements to logging in the partitioning BE code.
125 the logger may need to be imported to the x86archtemplate. unknown yet.
126 Added the finishing_cleanup function.
127 added a fix to the logger from BenUrban
128
129 25 Mar 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
130 changed InstallProfile to remove is_uri check on kernel, stage, and portage
131 URIs. The blank uri check has been commented out.
132 ripped out error checking of set_services. this is done by _add_to_runlevel.
133
134 25 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
135 set_stage_tarball_uri() doesn't raise an exception on a blank string.
136
137 24 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
138 GRP-ish quickpkg code pulls PKGDIR and PORTAGE_TMPDIR from make.conf info in
139 the install profile if available. Commented out spawn() debugging prints
140
141 23 Mar 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
142 small changes to setup_network_post. moved adding to runlevel of net.x to
143 after the device gets symlinked. added domainname runlevel command.
144
145 23 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
146 minor fix (hopefully) to livecd-kernel code. Removed call to mkvardb in
147 livecd-kernel code as it's now done by catalyst. Switch _emerge() call to
148 spawn() call in livecd-kernel code to pass environment variables.
149 livecd-kernel code pulls PKGDIR and PORTAGE_TMPDIR from make.conf info in
150 the install profile if available.
151
152 23 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
153 Added code to build_kernel() and emerge_kernel_sources() in ArchTemplate
154 to handle installing the livecd kernel into the new system.
155
156 22 Mar 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
157 should emerge hotplug and coldplug before adding them to runlevel.
158
159 21 Mar 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
160 took chroot out of grub_install command.
161
162 21 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
163 Changed chroot wrapper code in spawn() to write the wrapper the python way
164 instead of the bash way to avoid quote conflicts. Added
165 'logfile=self._compile_logfile' to a number of spawn() calls. Added new
166 hash_password() function to GLIUtility. Remove command to 'rm /tmp/spawn.sh'
167 as it breaks the piping.
168
169 20 Mar 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
170 Added the amd64ArchitectureTemplate, mostly a copy of x86 without lilo.
171
172 20 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
173 Added _get_packages_to_emerge() to GLIArchitectureTemplate and calls in
174 stage1() and stage2(). Added 'origminor' parameter to GLIStorageDevice and
175 GLIInstallProfile.
176
177 19 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
178 Fixed a couple bugs in add_netmount() in GLIInstallProfile. spawn() outputs
179 to the actual tty8 with display_on_tty8 flag. Compile output logfile moved
180 into /mnt/gentoo in prepare_chroot()
181
182 18 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
183 Add sigunmask.c contributed by d_m (on freenode) to counteract python's
184 retarted behavior regarding threads and signals. Add code to convert MB/%/*
185 to start/end sectors
186
187 17 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
188 Add 2>&1 to cmd in spawn()
189
190 16 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
191 Modified GLIUtility.exitsuccess() to work with return value from
192 commands.getstatusoutput instead of os.waitpid(). spawn() automatically
193 creates wrapper script for commands run inside chroot so multiple commands
194 and redirection can be used. Change exitsuccess() back. Added 'chmod a+x'
195 for the generated script from spawn()
196
197 16 Mar 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
198 Removed default values for stage tarball URI and portage tree URI from
199 InstallProfile. These should be set by the FEs. also added services step to
200 ArchTemplate and coldplug/hotplug runlevels to the genkernel step.
201 Possibly fixed CC DHCP bug with -n. (thx agaffney)
202
203 14 Mar 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
204 Small fix for setting the default gateway. Also added feature to dialogfe.
205
206 7 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
207 Switched spawn() over to commands.getstatusoutput() instead of fork/waitpid
208
209 1 Mar 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
210 Fixed a bunch of true -> True typos. lots of em
211 only write new resolv.conf if there are dns servers listed.
212
213 1 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
214 Commented out 'display_on_tty8=True' in start_portmap()
215
216 18 Feb 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
217 added progress bar to dialogfe and fix logger bug in ArchTemplate.
218
219 18 Feb 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
220 Created GLISayWhat module. Renamed GLISayWhat to GLILocalization. Moved
221 lang parameter to __init__()
222
223 10 Feb 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
224 updates to TODO list.
225
226 6 Feb 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
227 Initial code for quickpkg GRP support. Fix loop to grab packages from
228 'emerge -p blah'
229
230 6 Feb 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
231 check for dhcp in the network stuff and emerge it if it is.
232 added quickpkg to TODO list
233
234 5 Feb 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
235 Changed the raising of 'warning' exceptions to a simple log of the error
236 so that the installer can continue.
237
238 3 Feb 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
239 Some big changes. First, changed most output to display_on_tty8.
240 Second, added log lines to all templates. Some smaller fixes such as typos.
241 Also did some cleanups of old commented lines.
242
243 1 Feb 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
244 Changed tty8 output to a fifo. Minor GLIStorageDevice fix thanks to BenUrban.
245 Undo change with fix. Escaping fix in GLIStorageDevice.py
246
247 31 Jan 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
248 more updates to TODO list. hopefully we'll soon start removing items instead
249 of adding them.
250
251 29 Jan 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
252 Changed the way GLIStorageDevice.get_max_sectors_for_resize() works
253
254 27 Jan 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
255 updated TODO list. (again)
256
257 25 Jan 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
258 changed output of portmap start to display_on_tty8.
259 fixed bootloader for udev and multiple kernels
260 fixed custom kernel config (again)
261
262 22 Jan 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
263 changed default value of CC._enable_ssh to True because this is smart.
264 added code to allow custom kernel .config. may be unstable and break. sorry.
265
266 21 Jan 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
267 partition() now waits until after it checks for partition flags before delete
268 the partitions :P
269
270 19 Jan 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
271 Updated TODO. swapon failure it temporarily not an error. swapon is an error
272 again. is_uri() check only performed on portage_tree_snapshot_uri if it isn't
273 blank.
274
275 19 Jan 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
276 Various fixes related to the add_users function. Still not yet finished.
277 Added things to the TODO list. Lets start using that!
278
279 18 Jan 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
280 Added code to x86Template to format newly created partitions. Also added
281 some error checking code. GLIStorageDevice passes 'minor' with data to
282 InstallProfile. Added partition() call back in ArchTemplate. Fixed NFS
283 mounting code.
284
285 18 Jan 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
286 Took out unnecessary setting of random livecd root password. the cd already
287 sets it randomly.
288
289 15 Jan 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
290 Took out an unneeded step from CC's run()
291
292 15 Jan 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
293 Attempt at detecting and adding windows partitions to lilo.
294
295 14 Jan 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
296 Added lilo code and cleaned up lilo code. also do_partitioning renamed to
297 partition. fixed misc exit_status => exitstatus typo.
298
299 11 Jan 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
300 Added basic code for resizing filesystems with pyparted. Fixed code for
301 resizing ntfs and ext2/3.
302
303 10 Jan 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
304 Fixed partition() in x86Template so that it scans through logicals and deletes
305 before deleting containing extended partition. Also clears partition table to
306 be safe before third pass.
307
308 08 Jan 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
309 Added mount_network_shares. not able to test it from this computer.
310 will test when i get back to school.
311 also added start_portmap to the client_controller as an always-do.
312 agaffney says this is needed for NFS mounts to work.
313
314 08 Jan 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
315 Partial rewrite of partitioning code in x86Template. No longer shells out to
316 parted to perform actions, now uses all pyparted calls. Code "works" in a
317 test, but still needs lots of TLC. Also modified tests/install.py to work
318 with x86Template and GLIClientConfiguration.
319
320 07 Jan 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
321 Initial move of partitioning code from ArchTemplate to x86Template.
322
323 07 Jan 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
324 Added grp_install and services to InstallProfile. forgot about the set_root_password
325
326 07 Jan 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
327 Fixed a few more edit_configs. fixed a chroot multicommand bug thanks to agaffney.
328 Test Install ran very well (skipping partitioning).
329
330 05 Jan 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
331 My mid-day update. rewrote mount_local_partitions for order of mounting. fixed prepare_chroot
332 rewrote configure_fstab and install_bootloader for new partition format. fixed a few _edit_configs.
333 some may still have eluded me.
334
335 05 Jan 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
336 Overhauled the entire ArchTemplate and did a lot of other misc fixes in order to test it.
337 Just finished mount_local_partitions in GLIArchitectureTemplate
338
339 05 Jan 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
340 Added get_num_sectors() to GLIStorageDevice.
341
342 04 Jan 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
343 GLIStorageDevice now tracks partition boundaries in sectors instead of cylinders.
344 Also now ignores <=100 sectors for free space. Removed remaining depends stuff
345 from GLIInstallProfile.
346
347 20 Dec 2004; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
348 GLIStorageDevice returns "unknown" instead of "" for get_type()
349
350 19 Dec 2004; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
351 Added get_extended_partition() to GLIStorageDevice. Rewrote get_logicals() to
352 actually work. Commented out resizability checking code for speed.
353
354 17 Dec 2004; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
355 Switched to using dumpe2fs to determine free space left in ext2/3 filesystem in
356 GLIStorageDevice at the suggestion of plors
357
358 10 Dec 2004; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
359 Added a function to GLIUtility to pull a value from a make.conf-style config
360 file. Minor type fix to GLIInstallProfile.py
361
362 09 Dec 2004; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
363 Added code in GLIArchitectureTemplate.py to write netmounts into fstab. Separated
364 network mounts from partition data structure in GLIInstallProfile
365
366 27 Nov 2004; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
367 Changed the way GLIStorageDevice.py determines the amount a ext2/3 filesystem
368 can be resized.
369
370 27 Oct 2004; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
371 Added some of the final functions to GLIInstallTemplate.
372 Yes this project is still active despite rare use of the Changelog!
373
374 11 Jun 2004; Nathaniel McCallum <npmccallum@gentoo.org>
375 Added the GLIPartitionTools.py file. This is a temporary insertion of
376 partitioning tools that will eventually go into their own package.
377
378 27 Mar 2004; Nathaniel McCallum <npmccallum@gentoo.org>
379 Added InstallProfileTODO.txt. Added GLIClientConfiguration.py (contains run-time
380 for the program). Added __init__(install_profile, client_configuration) to
381 GLI.InstallProfile. This sets install_profile and client_configuration once so as
382 to avoid constantly passing stuff every time we call a method.
383
384 26 Mar 2004; Nathaniel McCallum <npmccallum@gentoo.org>
385
386 Added another private method to GLI.InstallTemplate. _edit_config() modifies config
387 files without messing up all the other stuff in them. This will be used for making
388 changes to make.conf, rc.conf, /etc/conf.d/net, etc...
389
390 25 Mar 2004; Nathaniel McCallum <npmccallum@gentoo.org>
391
392 Added GLI.InstallTemplate framework. This is not yet functional. However, it does
393 have a few basic things. I added two private methods. One is _depends(). This
394 will be used for dependency checking (ie. unpacking a tarball requires that
395 partitioning has been done). The other is _exec_in_chroot(). This is the exact
396 same syntax as os.system(), however, instead of being run in the liveCD
397 environment, it runs in the chroot. This requires a bit of fork() magic, so I
398 isolated the code. Hope to work more this week to get this class formed...
399
400 14 Feb 2004; Eric Sammer <esammer@gentoo.org>
401
402 Added SAX parsing. Made GLI.InstallProfile a subclass of xml.sax.ContentHandler for
403 obvious reasons. Switched kernel_modules and users to be lists instead of tuples
404 to allow for easier modification (mutable, rather than immutable objects). Updated
405 existing pydoc and added more. Implemented body of GLI.InstallProfile.parse().
406 Cleaned file format of GLI.py a bit. Fixed all accessors to use self references.
407 Added initial unit test code.
408
409 9 Feb 2004; Eric Sammer <esammer@gentoo.org>
410
411 Added initial changelog. Setting up the basic structure of the CVS repository
412 for the project. Added the UML class diagram in docs. Added a skeletal GLI
413 python module. Added misc files such news, authors, etc.
