68 code.
69
70 16 Apr 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>

80 pythondoc.
81
82 13 Apr 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
83 Moved 'end >= device_sectors' check out of loop to check for next partition's
84 start point (thanks to Marco Djukic). Fix >4 primary partitions on non-x86.
85 Partitioning code now tracks start/end of extended for placing logicals. End
86 point of logical is now adjusted along with start.
87
88 11 Apr 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
89 Finish overhaul of backend partitioning code. Fixed all bugs that stood in
90 the way of partitioning from a blank disk. Add int() around access to minor
91 key in partition information due to new partition code leaving them as float.
92
93 10 Apr 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
94 tidy_partitions() function in GLIStorageDevice. Tweaks to tidy code
95

100 Added support for DHCP options and MAC addresses in the InstallProfile.
101
102 3 Apr 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>

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