73
74 16 Apr 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>

86 13 Apr 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
87 Moved 'end >= device_sectors' check out of loop to check for next partition's
88 start point (thanks to Marco Djukic). Fix >4 primary partitions on non-x86.
89 Partitioning code now tracks start/end of extended for placing logicals. End
90 point of logical is now adjusted along with start.
91
92 11 Apr 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
93 Finish overhaul of backend partitioning code. Fixed all bugs that stood in
94 the way of partitioning from a blank disk. Add int() around access to minor
95 key in partition information due to new partition code leaving them as float.
96
97 10 Apr 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
98 tidy_partitions() function in GLIStorageDevice. Tweaks to tidy code
99

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