67 code.
68
69 16 Apr 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>

80
81 13 Apr 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
82 Moved 'end >= device_sectors' check out of loop to check for next partition's
83 start point (thanks to Marco Djukic). Fix >4 primary partitions on non-x86.
84 Partitioning code now tracks start/end of extended for placing logicals. End
85 point of logical is now adjusted along with start.
86
87 11 Apr 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
88 Finish overhaul of backend partitioning code. Fixed all bugs that stood in
89 the way of partitioning from a blank disk. Add int() around access to minor
90 key in partition information due to new partition code leaving them as float.
91
92 10 Apr 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
93 tidy_partitions() function in GLIStorageDevice. Tweaks to tidy code
94

103 sed to properly strip out junk.
104
105 2 Apr 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
106 fixed the way set_timezone works. added hotplug/coldplug for livecd-kernel
107 added --emptytree to stage2. fixed ethx not being added to runlevel defalt.
108
109 31 Mar 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
110 Fixed indent problem in GLICController
111
112 30 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
113 Check for disklabel type "loop" and use the device name without a minor.
114
115 29 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
116 Remove /tmp/compile_output.log and /var/log/install.log when install is
117 complete. Added code to (hopefully) keep 2nd thread running after install.
118 Patch from zahna for extra arguments to the kernel. Patch from zahna to add
119 get_eth_info() function. Remove most of content in amd64ArchTemplate and
120 make it inherit from x86Archtemplate. kernel_args -> bootloader_kernel_args
121
122 28 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
123 Added 'append_log=True' to all spawn() calls using logfile=. Append to log
124 when unpacking tarball.
125
126 28 Mar 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
127 rewrote filesystem_tools. looks like it works so ripping out all the old
128 filesystem_tools code.
129
130 26 Mar 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
131 Changed the print statements to logging in the partitioning BE code.
132 the logger may need to be imported to the x86archtemplate. unknown yet.
133 Added the finishing_cleanup function.
134 added a fix to the logger from BenUrban
135
136 25 Mar 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
137 changed InstallProfile to remove is_uri check on kernel, stage, and portage
138 URIs. The blank uri check has been commented out.
139 ripped out error checking of set_services. this is done by _add_to_runlevel.
140
141 25 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
142 set_stage_tarball_uri() doesn't raise an exception on a blank string.
143
144 24 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
145 GRP-ish quickpkg code pulls PKGDIR and PORTAGE_TMPDIR from make.conf info in
146 the install profile if available. Commented out spawn() debugging prints
147
148 23 Mar 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
149 small changes to setup_network_post. moved adding to runlevel of net.x to
150 after the device gets symlinked. added domainname runlevel command.
151
152 23 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
153 minor fix (hopefully) to livecd-kernel code. Removed call to mkvardb in
154 livecd-kernel code as it's now done by catalyst. Switch _emerge() call to
155 spawn() call in livecd-kernel code to pass environment variables.
156 livecd-kernel code pulls PKGDIR and PORTAGE_TMPDIR from make.conf info in
157 the install profile if available.
158
159 23 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
160 Added code to build_kernel() and emerge_kernel_sources() in ArchTemplate
161 to handle installing the livecd kernel into the new system.
162
163 22 Mar 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
164 should emerge hotplug and coldplug before adding them to runlevel.
165
166 21 Mar 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
167 took chroot out of grub_install command.
168
169 21 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
170 Changed chroot wrapper code in spawn() to write the wrapper the python way
171 instead of the bash way to avoid quote conflicts. Added
172 'logfile=self._compile_logfile' to a number of spawn() calls. Added new
173 hash_password() function to GLIUtility. Remove command to 'rm /tmp/spawn.sh'
174 as it breaks the piping.
175
176 20 Mar 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
177 Added the amd64ArchitectureTemplate, mostly a copy of x86 without lilo.
178
179 20 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
180 Added _get_packages_to_emerge() to GLIArchitectureTemplate and calls in
181 stage1() and stage2(). Added 'origminor' parameter to GLIStorageDevice and
182 GLIInstallProfile.
183
184 19 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
185 Fixed a couple bugs in add_netmount() in GLIInstallProfile. spawn() outputs
186 to the actual tty8 with display_on_tty8 flag. Compile output logfile moved
187 into /mnt/gentoo in prepare_chroot()
188
189 18 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
190 Add sigunmask.c contributed by d_m (on freenode) to counteract python's
191 retarted behavior regarding threads and signals. Add code to convert MB/%/*
192 to start/end sectors
193
194 17 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
195 Add 2>&1 to cmd in spawn()
196
197 16 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
198 Modified GLIUtility.exitsuccess() to work with return value from
199 commands.getstatusoutput instead of os.waitpid(). spawn() automatically
200 creates wrapper script for commands run inside chroot so multiple commands
201 and redirection can be used. Change exitsuccess() back. Added 'chmod a+x'
202 for the generated script from spawn()
203
204 16 Mar 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
205 Removed default values for stage tarball URI and portage tree URI from
206 InstallProfile. These should be set by the FEs. also added services step to
207 ArchTemplate and coldplug/hotplug runlevels to the genkernel step.
208 Possibly fixed CC DHCP bug with -n. (thx agaffney)
209
210 14 Mar 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
211 Small fix for setting the default gateway. Also added feature to dialogfe.
212
213 7 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
214 Switched spawn() over to commands.getstatusoutput() instead of fork/waitpid
215
216 1 Mar 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
217 Fixed a bunch of true -> True typos. lots of em
218 only write new resolv.conf if there are dns servers listed.
219
220 1 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
221 Commented out 'display_on_tty8=True' in start_portmap()
222
223 18 Feb 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
224 added progress bar to dialogfe and fix logger bug in ArchTemplate.
225
226 18 Feb 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
227 Created GLISayWhat module. Renamed GLISayWhat to GLILocalization. Moved
228 lang parameter to __init__()
229
230 10 Feb 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
231 updates to TODO list.
232
233 6 Feb 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
234 Initial code for quickpkg GRP support. Fix loop to grab packages from
235 'emerge -p blah'
236
237 6 Feb 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
238 check for dhcp in the network stuff and emerge it if it is.
239 added quickpkg to TODO list
240
241 5 Feb 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
242 Changed the raising of 'warning' exceptions to a simple log of the error
243 so that the installer can continue.
244
245 3 Feb 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
246 Some big changes. First, changed most output to display_on_tty8.
247 Second, added log lines to all templates. Some smaller fixes such as typos.
248 Also did some cleanups of old commented lines.
249
250 1 Feb 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
251 Changed tty8 output to a fifo. Minor GLIStorageDevice fix thanks to BenUrban.
252 Undo change with fix. Escaping fix in GLIStorageDevice.py
253
254 31 Jan 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
255 more updates to TODO list. hopefully we'll soon start removing items instead
256 of adding them.
257
258 29 Jan 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
259 Changed the way GLIStorageDevice.get_max_sectors_for_resize() works
260
261 27 Jan 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
262 updated TODO list. (again)
263
264 25 Jan 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
265 changed output of portmap start to display_on_tty8.
266 fixed bootloader for udev and multiple kernels
267 fixed custom kernel config (again)
268
269 22 Jan 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
270 changed default value of CC._enable_ssh to True because this is smart.
271 added code to allow custom kernel .config. may be unstable and break. sorry.
272
273 21 Jan 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
274 partition() now waits until after it checks for partition flags before delete
275 the partitions :P
276
277 19 Jan 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
278 Updated TODO. swapon failure it temporarily not an error. swapon is an error
279 again. is_uri() check only performed on portage_tree_snapshot_uri if it isn't
280 blank.
281
282 19 Jan 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
283 Various fixes related to the add_users function. Still not yet finished.
284 Added things to the TODO list. Lets start using that!
285
286 18 Jan 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
287 Added code to x86Template to format newly created partitions. Also added
288 some error checking code. GLIStorageDevice passes 'minor' with data to
289 InstallProfile. Added partition() call back in ArchTemplate. Fixed NFS
290 mounting code.
291
292 18 Jan 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
293 Took out unnecessary setting of random livecd root password. the cd already
294 sets it randomly.
295
296 15 Jan 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
297 Took out an unneeded step from CC's run()
298
299 15 Jan 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
300 Attempt at detecting and adding windows partitions to lilo.
301
302 14 Jan 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
303 Added lilo code and cleaned up lilo code. also do_partitioning renamed to
304 partition. fixed misc exit_status => exitstatus typo.
305
306 11 Jan 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
307 Added basic code for resizing filesystems with pyparted. Fixed code for
308 resizing ntfs and ext2/3.
309
310 10 Jan 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
311 Fixed partition() in x86Template so that it scans through logicals and deletes
312 before deleting containing extended partition. Also clears partition table to
313 be safe before third pass.
314
315 08 Jan 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
316 Added mount_network_shares. not able to test it from this computer.
317 will test when i get back to school.
318 also added start_portmap to the client_controller as an always-do.
319 agaffney says this is needed for NFS mounts to work.
320
321 08 Jan 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
322 Partial rewrite of partitioning code in x86Template. No longer shells out to
323 parted to perform actions, now uses all pyparted calls. Code "works" in a
324 test, but still needs lots of TLC. Also modified tests/install.py to work
325 with x86Template and GLIClientConfiguration.
326
327 07 Jan 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
328 Initial move of partitioning code from ArchTemplate to x86Template.
329
330 07 Jan 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
331 Added grp_install and services to InstallProfile. forgot about the set_root_password
332
333 07 Jan 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
334 Fixed a few more edit_configs. fixed a chroot multicommand bug thanks to agaffney.
335 Test Install ran very well (skipping partitioning).
336
337 05 Jan 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
338 My mid-day update. rewrote mount_local_partitions for order of mounting. fixed prepare_chroot
339 rewrote configure_fstab and install_bootloader for new partition format. fixed a few _edit_configs.
340 some may still have eluded me.
341
342 05 Jan 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
343 Overhauled the entire ArchTemplate and did a lot of other misc fixes in order to test it.
344 Just finished mount_local_partitions in GLIArchitectureTemplate
345
346 05 Jan 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
347 Added get_num_sectors() to GLIStorageDevice.
348
349 04 Jan 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
350 GLIStorageDevice now tracks partition boundaries in sectors instead of cylinders.
351 Also now ignores <=100 sectors for free space. Removed remaining depends stuff
352 from GLIInstallProfile.
353
354 20 Dec 2004; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
355 GLIStorageDevice returns "unknown" instead of "" for get_type()
356
357 19 Dec 2004; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
358 Added get_extended_partition() to GLIStorageDevice. Rewrote get_logicals() to
359 actually work. Commented out resizability checking code for speed.
360
361 17 Dec 2004; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
362 Switched to using dumpe2fs to determine free space left in ext2/3 filesystem in
363 GLIStorageDevice at the suggestion of plors
364
365 10 Dec 2004; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
366 Added a function to GLIUtility to pull a value from a make.conf-style config
367 file. Minor type fix to GLIInstallProfile.py
368
369 09 Dec 2004; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
370 Added code in GLIArchitectureTemplate.py to write netmounts into fstab. Separated
371 network mounts from partition data structure in GLIInstallProfile
372
373 27 Nov 2004; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
374 Changed the way GLIStorageDevice.py determines the amount a ext2/3 filesystem
375 can be resized.
376
377 27 Oct 2004; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
378 Added some of the final functions to GLIInstallTemplate.
379 Yes this project is still active despite rare use of the Changelog!
380
381 11 Jun 2004; Nathaniel McCallum <npmccallum@gentoo.org>
382 Added the GLIPartitionTools.py file. This is a temporary insertion of
383 partitioning tools that will eventually go into their own package.
384
385 27 Mar 2004; Nathaniel McCallum <npmccallum@gentoo.org>
386 Added InstallProfileTODO.txt. Added GLIClientConfiguration.py (contains run-time
387 for the program). Added __init__(install_profile, client_configuration) to
388 GLI.InstallProfile. This sets install_profile and client_configuration once so as
389 to avoid constantly passing stuff every time we call a method.
390
391 26 Mar 2004; Nathaniel McCallum <npmccallum@gentoo.org>
392
393 Added another private method to GLI.InstallTemplate. _edit_config() modifies config
394 files without messing up all the other stuff in them. This will be used for making
395 changes to make.conf, rc.conf, /etc/conf.d/net, etc...
396
397 25 Mar 2004; Nathaniel McCallum <npmccallum@gentoo.org>
398
399 Added GLI.InstallTemplate framework. This is not yet functional. However, it does
400 have a few basic things. I added two private methods. One is _depends(). This
401 will be used for dependency checking (ie. unpacking a tarball requires that
402 partitioning has been done). The other is _exec_in_chroot(). This is the exact
403 same syntax as os.system(), however, instead of being run in the liveCD
404 environment, it runs in the chroot. This requires a bit of fork() magic, so I
405 isolated the code. Hope to work more this week to get this class formed...
406
407 14 Feb 2004; Eric Sammer <esammer@gentoo.org>
408
409 Added SAX parsing. Made GLI.InstallProfile a subclass of xml.sax.ContentHandler for
410 obvious reasons. Switched kernel_modules and users to be lists instead of tuples
411 to allow for easier modification (mutable, rather than immutable objects). Updated
412 existing pydoc and added more. Implemented body of GLI.InstallProfile.parse().
413 Cleaned file format of GLI.py a bit. Fixed all accessors to use self references.
414 Added initial unit test code.
415
416 9 Feb 2004; Eric Sammer <esammer@gentoo.org>
417
418 Added initial changelog. Setting up the basic structure of the CVS repository
419 for the project. Added the UML class diagram in docs. Added a skeletal GLI
420 python module. Added misc files such news, authors, etc.
