15
16 10 May 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>

77 code.
78
79 16 Apr 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>

90
91 13 Apr 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
92 Moved 'end >= device_sectors' check out of loop to check for next partition's
93 start point (thanks to Marco Djukic). Fix >4 primary partitions on non-x86.
94 Partitioning code now tracks start/end of extended for placing logicals. End
95 point of logical is now adjusted along with start.
96
97 11 Apr 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
98 Finish overhaul of backend partitioning code. Fixed all bugs that stood in
99 the way of partitioning from a blank disk. Add int() around access to minor
100 key in partition information due to new partition code leaving them as float.
101
102 10 Apr 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
103 tidy_partitions() function in GLIStorageDevice. Tweaks to tidy code
104

109 Added support for DHCP options and MAC addresses in the InstallProfile.
110
111 3 Apr 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>

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