78 code.
79
80 16 Apr 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>

82 adding the new value to the end of the file.
83
84 15 Apr 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
85 Back. Did the docuementation thang for ArchTemplate and ClientConfiguration.

91
92 13 Apr 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
93 Moved 'end >= device_sectors' check out of loop to check for next partition's
94 start point (thanks to Marco Djukic). Fix >4 primary partitions on non-x86.
95 Partitioning code now tracks start/end of extended for placing logicals. End
96 point of logical is now adjusted along with start.
97
98 11 Apr 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
99 Finish overhaul of backend partitioning code. Fixed all bugs that stood in
100 the way of partitioning from a blank disk. Add int() around access to minor
101 key in partition information due to new partition code leaving them as float.
102
103 10 Apr 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
104 tidy_partitions() function in GLIStorageDevice. Tweaks to tidy code
105

111
112 3 Apr 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>

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