63 code.
64
65 16 Apr 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>

67 adding the new value to the end of the file.
68
69 15 Apr 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
70 Back. Did the docuementation thang for ArchTemplate and ClientConfiguration.
71 Also updated TODO list.
72
73 14 Apr 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>

75 pythondoc.
76
77 13 Apr 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
78 Moved 'end >= device_sectors' check out of loop to check for next partition's
79 start point (thanks to Marco Djukic). Fix >4 primary partitions on non-x86.
80 Partitioning code now tracks start/end of extended for placing logicals. End
81 point of logical is now adjusted along with start.
82
83 11 Apr 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
84 Finish overhaul of backend partitioning code. Fixed all bugs that stood in
85 the way of partitioning from a blank disk. Add int() around access to minor
86 key in partition information due to new partition code leaving them as float.
87
88 10 Apr 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
89 tidy_partitions() function in GLIStorageDevice. Tweaks to tidy code
90
91 9 Apr 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>

93
94 8 Apr 2005; Scott Myron <samyron@gentoo.org>
95 Added support for DHCP options and MAC addresses in the InstallProfile.
96
97 3 Apr 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>

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

221
222 18 Feb 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
223 Created GLISayWhat module. Renamed GLISayWhat to GLILocalization. Moved
224 lang parameter to __init__()
225
226 10 Feb 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
227 updates to TODO list.
228
229 6 Feb 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
230 Initial code for quickpkg GRP support. Fix loop to grab packages from
231 'emerge -p blah'
232
233 6 Feb 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
234 check for dhcp in the network stuff and emerge it if it is.
235 added quickpkg to TODO list
236
237 5 Feb 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
238 Changed the raising of 'warning' exceptions to a simple log of the error
239 so that the installer can continue.
240
241 3 Feb 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
242 Some big changes. First, changed most output to display_on_tty8.
243 Second, added log lines to all templates. Some smaller fixes such as typos.
244 Also did some cleanups of old commented lines.
245
246 1 Feb 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
247 Changed tty8 output to a fifo. Minor GLIStorageDevice fix thanks to BenUrban.
248 Undo change with fix. Escaping fix in GLIStorageDevice.py
249
250 31 Jan 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
251 more updates to TODO list. hopefully we'll soon start removing items instead
252 of adding them.
253
254 29 Jan 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
255 Changed the way GLIStorageDevice.get_max_sectors_for_resize() works
256
257 27 Jan 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
258 updated TODO list. (again)
259
260 25 Jan 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
261 changed output of portmap start to display_on_tty8.
262 fixed bootloader for udev and multiple kernels
263 fixed custom kernel config (again)
264
265 22 Jan 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
266 changed default value of CC._enable_ssh to True because this is smart.
267 added code to allow custom kernel .config. may be unstable and break. sorry.
268
269 21 Jan 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
270 partition() now waits until after it checks for partition flags before delete
271 the partitions :P
272
273 19 Jan 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
274 Updated TODO. swapon failure it temporarily not an error. swapon is an error
275 again. is_uri() check only performed on portage_tree_snapshot_uri if it isn't
276 blank.
277
278 19 Jan 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
279 Various fixes related to the add_users function. Still not yet finished.
280 Added things to the TODO list. Lets start using that!
281
282 18 Jan 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
283 Added code to x86Template to format newly created partitions. Also added
284 some error checking code. GLIStorageDevice passes 'minor' with data to
285 InstallProfile. Added partition() call back in ArchTemplate. Fixed NFS
286 mounting code.
287
288 18 Jan 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
289 Took out unnecessary setting of random livecd root password. the cd already
290 sets it randomly.
291
292 15 Jan 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
293 Took out an unneeded step from CC's run()
294
295 15 Jan 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
296 Attempt at detecting and adding windows partitions to lilo.
297
298 14 Jan 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
299 Added lilo code and cleaned up lilo code. also do_partitioning renamed to
300 partition. fixed misc exit_status => exitstatus typo.
301
302 11 Jan 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
303 Added basic code for resizing filesystems with pyparted. Fixed code for
304 resizing ntfs and ext2/3.
305
306 10 Jan 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
307 Fixed partition() in x86Template so that it scans through logicals and deletes
308 before deleting containing extended partition. Also clears partition table to
309 be safe before third pass.
310
311 08 Jan 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
312 Added mount_network_shares. not able to test it from this computer.
313 will test when i get back to school.
314 also added start_portmap to the client_controller as an always-do.
315 agaffney says this is needed for NFS mounts to work.
316
317 08 Jan 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
318 Partial rewrite of partitioning code in x86Template. No longer shells out to
319 parted to perform actions, now uses all pyparted calls. Code "works" in a
320 test, but still needs lots of TLC. Also modified tests/install.py to work
321 with x86Template and GLIClientConfiguration.
322
323 07 Jan 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
324 Initial move of partitioning code from ArchTemplate to x86Template.
325
326 07 Jan 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
327 Added grp_install and services to InstallProfile. forgot about the set_root_password
328
329 07 Jan 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
330 Fixed a few more edit_configs. fixed a chroot multicommand bug thanks to agaffney.
331 Test Install ran very well (skipping partitioning).
332
333 05 Jan 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
334 My mid-day update. rewrote mount_local_partitions for order of mounting. fixed prepare_chroot
335 rewrote configure_fstab and install_bootloader for new partition format. fixed a few _edit_configs.
336 some may still have eluded me.
337
338 05 Jan 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
339 Overhauled the entire ArchTemplate and did a lot of other misc fixes in order to test it.
340 Just finished mount_local_partitions in GLIArchitectureTemplate
341
342 05 Jan 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
343 Added get_num_sectors() to GLIStorageDevice.
344
345 04 Jan 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
346 GLIStorageDevice now tracks partition boundaries in sectors instead of cylinders.
347 Also now ignores <=100 sectors for free space. Removed remaining depends stuff
348 from GLIInstallProfile.
349
350 20 Dec 2004; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
351 GLIStorageDevice returns "unknown" instead of "" for get_type()
352
353 19 Dec 2004; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
354 Added get_extended_partition() to GLIStorageDevice. Rewrote get_logicals() to
355 actually work. Commented out resizability checking code for speed.
356
357 17 Dec 2004; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
358 Switched to using dumpe2fs to determine free space left in ext2/3 filesystem in
359 GLIStorageDevice at the suggestion of plors
360
361 10 Dec 2004; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
362 Added a function to GLIUtility to pull a value from a make.conf-style config
363 file. Minor type fix to GLIInstallProfile.py
364
365 09 Dec 2004; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
366 Added code in GLIArchitectureTemplate.py to write netmounts into fstab. Separated
367 network mounts from partition data structure in GLIInstallProfile
368
369 27 Nov 2004; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
370 Changed the way GLIStorageDevice.py determines the amount a ext2/3 filesystem
371 can be resized.
372
373 27 Oct 2004; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
374 Added some of the final functions to GLIInstallTemplate.
375 Yes this project is still active despite rare use of the Changelog!
376
377 11 Jun 2004; Nathaniel McCallum <npmccallum@gentoo.org>
378 Added the GLIPartitionTools.py file. This is a temporary insertion of
379 partitioning tools that will eventually go into their own package.
380
381 27 Mar 2004; Nathaniel McCallum <npmccallum@gentoo.org>
382 Added InstallProfileTODO.txt. Added GLIClientConfiguration.py (contains run-time
383 for the program). Added __init__(install_profile, client_configuration) to
384 GLI.InstallProfile. This sets install_profile and client_configuration once so as
385 to avoid constantly passing stuff every time we call a method.
386
387 26 Mar 2004; Nathaniel McCallum <npmccallum@gentoo.org>
388
389 Added another private method to GLI.InstallTemplate. _edit_config() modifies config
390 files without messing up all the other stuff in them. This will be used for making
391 changes to make.conf, rc.conf, /etc/conf.d/net, etc...
392
393 25 Mar 2004; Nathaniel McCallum <npmccallum@gentoo.org>
394
395 Added GLI.InstallTemplate framework. This is not yet functional. However, it does
396 have a few basic things. I added two private methods. One is _depends(). This
397 will be used for dependency checking (ie. unpacking a tarball requires that
398 partitioning has been done). The other is _exec_in_chroot(). This is the exact
399 same syntax as os.system(), however, instead of being run in the liveCD
400 environment, it runs in the chroot. This requires a bit of fork() magic, so I
401 isolated the code. Hope to work more this week to get this class formed...
402
403 14 Feb 2004; Eric Sammer <esammer@gentoo.org>
404
405 Added SAX parsing. Made GLI.InstallProfile a subclass of xml.sax.ContentHandler for
406 obvious reasons. Switched kernel_modules and users to be lists instead of tuples
407 to allow for easier modification (mutable, rather than immutable objects). Updated
408 existing pydoc and added more. Implemented body of GLI.InstallProfile.parse().
409 Cleaned file format of GLI.py a bit. Fixed all accessors to use self references.
410 Added initial unit test code.
411
412 9 Feb 2004; Eric Sammer <esammer@gentoo.org>
413
414 Added initial changelog. Setting up the basic structure of the CVS repository
415 for the project. Added the UML class diagram in docs. Added a skeletal GLI
416 python module. Added misc files such news, authors, etc.
