74
75 16 Apr 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>

86
87 13 Apr 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
88 Moved 'end >= device_sectors' check out of loop to check for next partition's
89 start point (thanks to Marco Djukic). Fix >4 primary partitions on non-x86.
90 Partitioning code now tracks start/end of extended for placing logicals. End
91 point of logical is now adjusted along with start.
92
93 11 Apr 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
94 Finish overhaul of backend partitioning code. Fixed all bugs that stood in
95 the way of partitioning from a blank disk. Add int() around access to minor
96 key in partition information due to new partition code leaving them as float.
97
98 10 Apr 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
99 tidy_partitions() function in GLIStorageDevice. Tweaks to tidy code
100

106
107 3 Apr 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>

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