7 11 May 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
8 Added --nocolor to all emerge calls. Fix is_eth_device to test for zero

11 instead of --nocolor.
12
13 10 May 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>

75
76 16 Apr 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>

87
88 13 Apr 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
89 Moved 'end >= device_sectors' check out of loop to check for next partition's
90 start point (thanks to Marco Djukic). Fix >4 primary partitions on non-x86.
91 Partitioning code now tracks start/end of extended for placing logicals. End
92 point of logical is now adjusted along with start.
93
94 11 Apr 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
95 Finish overhaul of backend partitioning code. Fixed all bugs that stood in
96 the way of partitioning from a blank disk. Add int() around access to minor
97 key in partition information due to new partition code leaving them as float.
98
99 10 Apr 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
100 tidy_partitions() function in GLIStorageDevice. Tweaks to tidy code
101

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