72
73 16 Apr 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>

84
85 13 Apr 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
86 Moved 'end >= device_sectors' check out of loop to check for next partition's
87 start point (thanks to Marco Djukic). Fix >4 primary partitions on non-x86.
88 Partitioning code now tracks start/end of extended for placing logicals. End
89 point of logical is now adjusted along with start.
90
91 11 Apr 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
92 Finish overhaul of backend partitioning code. Fixed all bugs that stood in
93 the way of partitioning from a blank disk. Add int() around access to minor
94 key in partition information due to new partition code leaving them as float.
95
96 10 Apr 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
97 tidy_partitions() function in GLIStorageDevice. Tweaks to tidy code
98

101
102 8 Apr 2005; Scott Myron <samyron@gentoo.org>
103 Added support for DHCP options and MAC addresses in the InstallProfile.
104
105 3 Apr 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
106 Changed mountopts check to work for blank and whitespace. Pipe emerge through
107 sed to properly strip out junk.
108
109 2 Apr 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
110 fixed the way set_timezone works. added hotplug/coldplug for livecd-kernel
111 added --emptytree to stage2. fixed ethx not being added to runlevel defalt.
112
113 31 Mar 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
114 Fixed indent problem in GLICController
115
116 30 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
117 Check for disklabel type "loop" and use the device name without a minor.
118
119 29 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
120 Remove /tmp/compile_output.log and /var/log/install.log when install is
121 complete. Added code to (hopefully) keep 2nd thread running after install.
122 Patch from zahna for extra arguments to the kernel. Patch from zahna to add
123 get_eth_info() function. Remove most of content in amd64ArchTemplate and
124 make it inherit from x86Archtemplate. kernel_args -> bootloader_kernel_args
125
126 28 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
127 Added 'append_log=True' to all spawn() calls using logfile=. Append to log
128 when unpacking tarball.
129
130 28 Mar 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
131 rewrote filesystem_tools. looks like it works so ripping out all the old
132 filesystem_tools code.
133
134 26 Mar 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
135 Changed the print statements to logging in the partitioning BE code.
136 the logger may need to be imported to the x86archtemplate. unknown yet.
137 Added the finishing_cleanup function.
138 added a fix to the logger from BenUrban
139
140 25 Mar 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
141 changed InstallProfile to remove is_uri check on kernel, stage, and portage
142 URIs. The blank uri check has been commented out.
143 ripped out error checking of set_services. this is done by _add_to_runlevel.
144
145 25 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
146 set_stage_tarball_uri() doesn't raise an exception on a blank string.
147
148 24 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
149 GRP-ish quickpkg code pulls PKGDIR and PORTAGE_TMPDIR from make.conf info in
150 the install profile if available. Commented out spawn() debugging prints
151
152 23 Mar 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
153 small changes to setup_network_post. moved adding to runlevel of net.x to
154 after the device gets symlinked. added domainname runlevel command.
155
156 23 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
157 minor fix (hopefully) to livecd-kernel code. Removed call to mkvardb in
158 livecd-kernel code as it's now done by catalyst. Switch _emerge() call to
159 spawn() call in livecd-kernel code to pass environment variables.
160 livecd-kernel code pulls PKGDIR and PORTAGE_TMPDIR from make.conf info in
161 the install profile if available.
162
163 23 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
164 Added code to build_kernel() and emerge_kernel_sources() in ArchTemplate
165 to handle installing the livecd kernel into the new system.
166
167 22 Mar 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
168 should emerge hotplug and coldplug before adding them to runlevel.
169
170 21 Mar 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
171 took chroot out of grub_install command.
172
173 21 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
174 Changed chroot wrapper code in spawn() to write the wrapper the python way
175 instead of the bash way to avoid quote conflicts. Added
176 'logfile=self._compile_logfile' to a number of spawn() calls. Added new
177 hash_password() function to GLIUtility. Remove command to 'rm /tmp/spawn.sh'
178 as it breaks the piping.
179
180 20 Mar 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
181 Added the amd64ArchitectureTemplate, mostly a copy of x86 without lilo.
182
183 20 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
184 Added _get_packages_to_emerge() to GLIArchitectureTemplate and calls in
185 stage1() and stage2(). Added 'origminor' parameter to GLIStorageDevice and
186 GLIInstallProfile.
187
188 19 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
189 Fixed a couple bugs in add_netmount() in GLIInstallProfile. spawn() outputs
190 to the actual tty8 with display_on_tty8 flag. Compile output logfile moved
191 into /mnt/gentoo in prepare_chroot()
192
193 18 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
194 Add sigunmask.c contributed by d_m (on freenode) to counteract python's
195 retarted behavior regarding threads and signals. Add code to convert MB/%/*
196 to start/end sectors
197
198 17 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
199 Add 2>&1 to cmd in spawn()
200
201 16 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
202 Modified GLIUtility.exitsuccess() to work with return value from
203 commands.getstatusoutput instead of os.waitpid(). spawn() automatically
204 creates wrapper script for commands run inside chroot so multiple commands
205 and redirection can be used. Change exitsuccess() back. Added 'chmod a+x'
206 for the generated script from spawn()
207
208 16 Mar 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
209 Removed default values for stage tarball URI and portage tree URI from
210 InstallProfile. These should be set by the FEs. also added services step to
211 ArchTemplate and coldplug/hotplug runlevels to the genkernel step.
212 Possibly fixed CC DHCP bug with -n. (thx agaffney)
213
214 14 Mar 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
215 Small fix for setting the default gateway. Also added feature to dialogfe.
216
217 7 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
218 Switched spawn() over to commands.getstatusoutput() instead of fork/waitpid
219
220 1 Mar 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
221 Fixed a bunch of true -> True typos. lots of em
222 only write new resolv.conf if there are dns servers listed.
223
224 1 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
225 Commented out 'display_on_tty8=True' in start_portmap()
226
227 18 Feb 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
228 added progress bar to dialogfe and fix logger bug in ArchTemplate.
229
230 18 Feb 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
231 Created GLISayWhat module. Renamed GLISayWhat to GLILocalization. Moved
232 lang parameter to __init__()
233
234 10 Feb 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
235 updates to TODO list.
236
237 6 Feb 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
238 Initial code for quickpkg GRP support. Fix loop to grab packages from
239 'emerge -p blah'
240
241 6 Feb 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
242 check for dhcp in the network stuff and emerge it if it is.
243 added quickpkg to TODO list
244
245 5 Feb 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
246 Changed the raising of 'warning' exceptions to a simple log of the error
247 so that the installer can continue.
248
249 3 Feb 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
250 Some big changes. First, changed most output to display_on_tty8.
251 Second, added log lines to all templates. Some smaller fixes such as typos.
252 Also did some cleanups of old commented lines.
253
254 1 Feb 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
255 Changed tty8 output to a fifo. Minor GLIStorageDevice fix thanks to BenUrban.
256 Undo change with fix. Escaping fix in GLIStorageDevice.py
257
258 31 Jan 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
259 more updates to TODO list. hopefully we'll soon start removing items instead
260 of adding them.
261
262 29 Jan 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
263 Changed the way GLIStorageDevice.get_max_sectors_for_resize() works
264
265 27 Jan 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
266 updated TODO list. (again)
267
268 25 Jan 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
269 changed output of portmap start to display_on_tty8.
270 fixed bootloader for udev and multiple kernels
271 fixed custom kernel config (again)
272
273 22 Jan 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
274 changed default value of CC._enable_ssh to True because this is smart.
275 added code to allow custom kernel .config. may be unstable and break. sorry.
276
277 21 Jan 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
278 partition() now waits until after it checks for partition flags before delete
279 the partitions :P
280
281 19 Jan 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
282 Updated TODO. swapon failure it temporarily not an error. swapon is an error
283 again. is_uri() check only performed on portage_tree_snapshot_uri if it isn't
284 blank.
285
286 19 Jan 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
287 Various fixes related to the add_users function. Still not yet finished.
288 Added things to the TODO list. Lets start using that!
289
290 18 Jan 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
291 Added code to x86Template to format newly created partitions. Also added
292 some error checking code. GLIStorageDevice passes 'minor' with data to
293 InstallProfile. Added partition() call back in ArchTemplate. Fixed NFS
294 mounting code.
295
296 18 Jan 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
297 Took out unnecessary setting of random livecd root password. the cd already
298 sets it randomly.
299
300 15 Jan 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
301 Took out an unneeded step from CC's run()
302
303 15 Jan 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
304 Attempt at detecting and adding windows partitions to lilo.
305
306 14 Jan 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
307 Added lilo code and cleaned up lilo code. also do_partitioning renamed to
308 partition. fixed misc exit_status => exitstatus typo.
309
310 11 Jan 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
311 Added basic code for resizing filesystems with pyparted. Fixed code for
312 resizing ntfs and ext2/3.
313
314 10 Jan 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
315 Fixed partition() in x86Template so that it scans through logicals and deletes
316 before deleting containing extended partition. Also clears partition table to
317 be safe before third pass.
318
319 08 Jan 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
320 Added mount_network_shares. not able to test it from this computer.
321 will test when i get back to school.
322 also added start_portmap to the client_controller as an always-do.
323 agaffney says this is needed for NFS mounts to work.
324
325 08 Jan 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
326 Partial rewrite of partitioning code in x86Template. No longer shells out to
327 parted to perform actions, now uses all pyparted calls. Code "works" in a
328 test, but still needs lots of TLC. Also modified tests/install.py to work
329 with x86Template and GLIClientConfiguration.
330
331 07 Jan 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
332 Initial move of partitioning code from ArchTemplate to x86Template.
333
334 07 Jan 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
335 Added grp_install and services to InstallProfile. forgot about the set_root_password
336
337 07 Jan 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
338 Fixed a few more edit_configs. fixed a chroot multicommand bug thanks to agaffney.
339 Test Install ran very well (skipping partitioning).
340
341 05 Jan 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
342 My mid-day update. rewrote mount_local_partitions for order of mounting. fixed prepare_chroot
343 rewrote configure_fstab and install_bootloader for new partition format. fixed a few _edit_configs.
344 some may still have eluded me.
345
346 05 Jan 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
347 Overhauled the entire ArchTemplate and did a lot of other misc fixes in order to test it.
348 Just finished mount_local_partitions in GLIArchitectureTemplate
349
350 05 Jan 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
351 Added get_num_sectors() to GLIStorageDevice.
352
353 04 Jan 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
354 GLIStorageDevice now tracks partition boundaries in sectors instead of cylinders.
355 Also now ignores <=100 sectors for free space. Removed remaining depends stuff
356 from GLIInstallProfile.
357
358 20 Dec 2004; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
359 GLIStorageDevice returns "unknown" instead of "" for get_type()
360
361 19 Dec 2004; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
362 Added get_extended_partition() to GLIStorageDevice. Rewrote get_logicals() to
363 actually work. Commented out resizability checking code for speed.
364
365 17 Dec 2004; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
366 Switched to using dumpe2fs to determine free space left in ext2/3 filesystem in
367 GLIStorageDevice at the suggestion of plors
368
369 10 Dec 2004; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
370 Added a function to GLIUtility to pull a value from a make.conf-style config
371 file. Minor type fix to GLIInstallProfile.py
372
373 09 Dec 2004; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
374 Added code in GLIArchitectureTemplate.py to write netmounts into fstab. Separated
375 network mounts from partition data structure in GLIInstallProfile
376
377 27 Nov 2004; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
378 Changed the way GLIStorageDevice.py determines the amount a ext2/3 filesystem
379 can be resized.
380
381 27 Oct 2004; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
382 Added some of the final functions to GLIInstallTemplate.
383 Yes this project is still active despite rare use of the Changelog!
384
385 11 Jun 2004; Nathaniel McCallum <npmccallum@gentoo.org>
386 Added the GLIPartitionTools.py file. This is a temporary insertion of
387 partitioning tools that will eventually go into their own package.
388
389 27 Mar 2004; Nathaniel McCallum <npmccallum@gentoo.org>
390 Added InstallProfileTODO.txt. Added GLIClientConfiguration.py (contains run-time
391 for the program). Added __init__(install_profile, client_configuration) to
392 GLI.InstallProfile. This sets install_profile and client_configuration once so as
393 to avoid constantly passing stuff every time we call a method.
394
395 26 Mar 2004; Nathaniel McCallum <npmccallum@gentoo.org>
396
397 Added another private method to GLI.InstallTemplate. _edit_config() modifies config
398 files without messing up all the other stuff in them. This will be used for making
399 changes to make.conf, rc.conf, /etc/conf.d/net, etc...
400
401 25 Mar 2004; Nathaniel McCallum <npmccallum@gentoo.org>
402
403 Added GLI.InstallTemplate framework. This is not yet functional. However, it does
404 have a few basic things. I added two private methods. One is _depends(). This
405 will be used for dependency checking (ie. unpacking a tarball requires that
406 partitioning has been done). The other is _exec_in_chroot(). This is the exact
407 same syntax as os.system(), however, instead of being run in the liveCD
408 environment, it runs in the chroot. This requires a bit of fork() magic, so I
409 isolated the code. Hope to work more this week to get this class formed...
410
411 14 Feb 2004; Eric Sammer <esammer@gentoo.org>
412
413 Added SAX parsing. Made GLI.InstallProfile a subclass of xml.sax.ContentHandler for
414 obvious reasons. Switched kernel_modules and users to be lists instead of tuples
415 to allow for easier modification (mutable, rather than immutable objects). Updated
416 existing pydoc and added more. Implemented body of GLI.InstallProfile.parse().
417 Cleaned file format of GLI.py a bit. Fixed all accessors to use self references.
418 Added initial unit test code.
419
420 9 Feb 2004; Eric Sammer <esammer@gentoo.org>
421
422 Added initial changelog. Setting up the basic structure of the CVS repository
423 for the project. Added the UML class diagram in docs. Added a skeletal GLI
424 python module. Added misc files such news, authors, etc.
