82
83 16 Apr 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>

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

117 sed to properly strip out junk.
118
119 2 Apr 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>

124 Fixed indent problem in GLICController
125
126 30 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>

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