82 code.
83
84 16 Apr 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>

95
96 13 Apr 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
97 Moved 'end >= device_sectors' check out of loop to check for next partition's
98 start point (thanks to Marco Djukic). Fix >4 primary partitions on non-x86.
99 Partitioning code now tracks start/end of extended for placing logicals. End
100 point of logical is now adjusted along with start.
101
102 11 Apr 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
103 Finish overhaul of backend partitioning code. Fixed all bugs that stood in
104 the way of partitioning from a blank disk. Add int() around access to minor
105 key in partition information due to new partition code leaving them as float.
106
107 10 Apr 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
108 tidy_partitions() function in GLIStorageDevice. Tweaks to tidy code

118 sed to properly strip out junk.
119
120 2 Apr 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
121 fixed the way set_timezone works. added hotplug/coldplug for livecd-kernel
122 added --emptytree to stage2. fixed ethx not being added to runlevel defalt.
123
124 31 Mar 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
125 Fixed indent problem in GLICController
126
127 30 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
128 Check for disklabel type "loop" and use the device name without a minor.
129
130 29 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
131 Remove /tmp/compile_output.log and /var/log/install.log when install is
132 complete. Added code to (hopefully) keep 2nd thread running after install.
133 Patch from zahna for extra arguments to the kernel. Patch from zahna to add
134 get_eth_info() function. Remove most of content in amd64ArchTemplate and
135 make it inherit from x86Archtemplate. kernel_args -> bootloader_kernel_args
136
137 28 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
138 Added 'append_log=True' to all spawn() calls using logfile=. Append to log
139 when unpacking tarball.
140
141 28 Mar 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
142 rewrote filesystem_tools. looks like it works so ripping out all the old
143 filesystem_tools code.
144
145 26 Mar 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
146 Changed the print statements to logging in the partitioning BE code.
147 the logger may need to be imported to the x86archtemplate. unknown yet.
148 Added the finishing_cleanup function.
149 added a fix to the logger from BenUrban
150
151 25 Mar 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
152 changed InstallProfile to remove is_uri check on kernel, stage, and portage
153 URIs. The blank uri check has been commented out.
154 ripped out error checking of set_services. this is done by _add_to_runlevel.
155
156 25 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
157 set_stage_tarball_uri() doesn't raise an exception on a blank string.
158
159 24 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
160 GRP-ish quickpkg code pulls PKGDIR and PORTAGE_TMPDIR from make.conf info in
161 the install profile if available. Commented out spawn() debugging prints
162
163 23 Mar 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
164 small changes to setup_network_post. moved adding to runlevel of net.x to
165 after the device gets symlinked. added domainname runlevel command.
166
167 23 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
168 minor fix (hopefully) to livecd-kernel code. Removed call to mkvardb in
169 livecd-kernel code as it's now done by catalyst. Switch _emerge() call to
170 spawn() call in livecd-kernel code to pass environment variables.
171 livecd-kernel code pulls PKGDIR and PORTAGE_TMPDIR from make.conf info in
172 the install profile if available.
173
174 23 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
175 Added code to build_kernel() and emerge_kernel_sources() in ArchTemplate
176 to handle installing the livecd kernel into the new system.
177
178 22 Mar 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
179 should emerge hotplug and coldplug before adding them to runlevel.
180
181 21 Mar 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
182 took chroot out of grub_install command.
183
184 21 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
185 Changed chroot wrapper code in spawn() to write the wrapper the python way
186 instead of the bash way to avoid quote conflicts. Added
187 'logfile=self._compile_logfile' to a number of spawn() calls. Added new
188 hash_password() function to GLIUtility. Remove command to 'rm /tmp/spawn.sh'
189 as it breaks the piping.
190
191 20 Mar 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
192 Added the amd64ArchitectureTemplate, mostly a copy of x86 without lilo.
193
194 20 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
195 Added _get_packages_to_emerge() to GLIArchitectureTemplate and calls in
196 stage1() and stage2(). Added 'origminor' parameter to GLIStorageDevice and
197 GLIInstallProfile.
198
199 19 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
200 Fixed a couple bugs in add_netmount() in GLIInstallProfile. spawn() outputs
201 to the actual tty8 with display_on_tty8 flag. Compile output logfile moved
202 into /mnt/gentoo in prepare_chroot()
203
204 18 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
205 Add sigunmask.c contributed by d_m (on freenode) to counteract python's
206 retarted behavior regarding threads and signals. Add code to convert MB/%/*
207 to start/end sectors
208
209 17 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
210 Add 2>&1 to cmd in spawn()
211
212 16 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
213 Modified GLIUtility.exitsuccess() to work with return value from
214 commands.getstatusoutput instead of os.waitpid(). spawn() automatically
215 creates wrapper script for commands run inside chroot so multiple commands
216 and redirection can be used. Change exitsuccess() back. Added 'chmod a+x'
217 for the generated script from spawn()
218
219 16 Mar 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
220 Removed default values for stage tarball URI and portage tree URI from
221 InstallProfile. These should be set by the FEs. also added services step to
222 ArchTemplate and coldplug/hotplug runlevels to the genkernel step.
223 Possibly fixed CC DHCP bug with -n. (thx agaffney)
224
225 14 Mar 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
226 Small fix for setting the default gateway. Also added feature to dialogfe.
227
228 7 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
229 Switched spawn() over to commands.getstatusoutput() instead of fork/waitpid
230
231 1 Mar 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
232 Fixed a bunch of true -> True typos. lots of em
233 only write new resolv.conf if there are dns servers listed.
234
235 1 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
236 Commented out 'display_on_tty8=True' in start_portmap()
237
238 18 Feb 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
239 added progress bar to dialogfe and fix logger bug in ArchTemplate.
240
241 18 Feb 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
242 Created GLISayWhat module. Renamed GLISayWhat to GLILocalization. Moved
243 lang parameter to __init__()
244
245 10 Feb 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
246 updates to TODO list.
247
248 6 Feb 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
249 Initial code for quickpkg GRP support. Fix loop to grab packages from
250 'emerge -p blah'
251
252 6 Feb 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
253 check for dhcp in the network stuff and emerge it if it is.
254 added quickpkg to TODO list
255
256 5 Feb 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
257 Changed the raising of 'warning' exceptions to a simple log of the error
258 so that the installer can continue.
259
260 3 Feb 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
261 Some big changes. First, changed most output to display_on_tty8.
262 Second, added log lines to all templates. Some smaller fixes such as typos.
263 Also did some cleanups of old commented lines.
264
265 1 Feb 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
266 Changed tty8 output to a fifo. Minor GLIStorageDevice fix thanks to BenUrban.
267 Undo change with fix. Escaping fix in GLIStorageDevice.py
268
269 31 Jan 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
270 more updates to TODO list. hopefully we'll soon start removing items instead
271 of adding them.
272
273 29 Jan 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
274 Changed the way GLIStorageDevice.get_max_sectors_for_resize() works
275
276 27 Jan 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
277 updated TODO list. (again)
278
279 25 Jan 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
280 changed output of portmap start to display_on_tty8.
281 fixed bootloader for udev and multiple kernels
282 fixed custom kernel config (again)
283
284 22 Jan 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
285 changed default value of CC._enable_ssh to True because this is smart.
286 added code to allow custom kernel .config. may be unstable and break. sorry.
287
288 21 Jan 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
289 partition() now waits until after it checks for partition flags before delete
290 the partitions :P
291
292 19 Jan 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
293 Updated TODO. swapon failure it temporarily not an error. swapon is an error
294 again. is_uri() check only performed on portage_tree_snapshot_uri if it isn't
295 blank.
296
297 19 Jan 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
298 Various fixes related to the add_users function. Still not yet finished.
299 Added things to the TODO list. Lets start using that!
300
301 18 Jan 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
302 Added code to x86Template to format newly created partitions. Also added
303 some error checking code. GLIStorageDevice passes 'minor' with data to
304 InstallProfile. Added partition() call back in ArchTemplate. Fixed NFS
305 mounting code.
306
307 18 Jan 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
308 Took out unnecessary setting of random livecd root password. the cd already
309 sets it randomly.
310
311 15 Jan 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
312 Took out an unneeded step from CC's run()
313
314 15 Jan 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
315 Attempt at detecting and adding windows partitions to lilo.
316
317 14 Jan 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
318 Added lilo code and cleaned up lilo code. also do_partitioning renamed to
319 partition. fixed misc exit_status => exitstatus typo.
320
321 11 Jan 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
322 Added basic code for resizing filesystems with pyparted. Fixed code for
323 resizing ntfs and ext2/3.
324
325 10 Jan 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
326 Fixed partition() in x86Template so that it scans through logicals and deletes
327 before deleting containing extended partition. Also clears partition table to
328 be safe before third pass.
329
330 08 Jan 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
331 Added mount_network_shares. not able to test it from this computer.
332 will test when i get back to school.
333 also added start_portmap to the client_controller as an always-do.
334 agaffney says this is needed for NFS mounts to work.
335
336 08 Jan 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
337 Partial rewrite of partitioning code in x86Template. No longer shells out to
338 parted to perform actions, now uses all pyparted calls. Code "works" in a
339 test, but still needs lots of TLC. Also modified tests/install.py to work
340 with x86Template and GLIClientConfiguration.
341
342 07 Jan 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
343 Initial move of partitioning code from ArchTemplate to x86Template.
344
345 07 Jan 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
346 Added grp_install and services to InstallProfile. forgot about the set_root_password
347
348 07 Jan 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
349 Fixed a few more edit_configs. fixed a chroot multicommand bug thanks to agaffney.
350 Test Install ran very well (skipping partitioning).
351
352 05 Jan 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
353 My mid-day update. rewrote mount_local_partitions for order of mounting. fixed prepare_chroot
354 rewrote configure_fstab and install_bootloader for new partition format. fixed a few _edit_configs.
355 some may still have eluded me.
356
357 05 Jan 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
358 Overhauled the entire ArchTemplate and did a lot of other misc fixes in order to test it.
359 Just finished mount_local_partitions in GLIArchitectureTemplate
360
361 05 Jan 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
362 Added get_num_sectors() to GLIStorageDevice.
363
364 04 Jan 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
365 GLIStorageDevice now tracks partition boundaries in sectors instead of cylinders.
366 Also now ignores <=100 sectors for free space. Removed remaining depends stuff
367 from GLIInstallProfile.
368
369 20 Dec 2004; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
370 GLIStorageDevice returns "unknown" instead of "" for get_type()
371
372 19 Dec 2004; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
373 Added get_extended_partition() to GLIStorageDevice. Rewrote get_logicals() to
374 actually work. Commented out resizability checking code for speed.
375
376 17 Dec 2004; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
377 Switched to using dumpe2fs to determine free space left in ext2/3 filesystem in
378 GLIStorageDevice at the suggestion of plors
379
380 10 Dec 2004; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
381 Added a function to GLIUtility to pull a value from a make.conf-style config
382 file. Minor type fix to GLIInstallProfile.py
383
384 09 Dec 2004; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
385 Added code in GLIArchitectureTemplate.py to write netmounts into fstab. Separated
386 network mounts from partition data structure in GLIInstallProfile
387
388 27 Nov 2004; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
389 Changed the way GLIStorageDevice.py determines the amount a ext2/3 filesystem
390 can be resized.
391
392 27 Oct 2004; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
393 Added some of the final functions to GLIInstallTemplate.
394 Yes this project is still active despite rare use of the Changelog!
395
396 11 Jun 2004; Nathaniel McCallum <npmccallum@gentoo.org>
397 Added the GLIPartitionTools.py file. This is a temporary insertion of
398 partitioning tools that will eventually go into their own package.
399
400 27 Mar 2004; Nathaniel McCallum <npmccallum@gentoo.org>
401 Added InstallProfileTODO.txt. Added GLIClientConfiguration.py (contains run-time
402 for the program). Added __init__(install_profile, client_configuration) to
403 GLI.InstallProfile. This sets install_profile and client_configuration once so as
404 to avoid constantly passing stuff every time we call a method.
405
406 26 Mar 2004; Nathaniel McCallum <npmccallum@gentoo.org>
407
408 Added another private method to GLI.InstallTemplate. _edit_config() modifies config
409 files without messing up all the other stuff in them. This will be used for making
410 changes to make.conf, rc.conf, /etc/conf.d/net, etc...
411
412 25 Mar 2004; Nathaniel McCallum <npmccallum@gentoo.org>
413
414 Added GLI.InstallTemplate framework. This is not yet functional. However, it does
415 have a few basic things. I added two private methods. One is _depends(). This
416 will be used for dependency checking (ie. unpacking a tarball requires that
417 partitioning has been done). The other is _exec_in_chroot(). This is the exact
418 same syntax as os.system(), however, instead of being run in the liveCD
419 environment, it runs in the chroot. This requires a bit of fork() magic, so I
420 isolated the code. Hope to work more this week to get this class formed...
421
422 14 Feb 2004; Eric Sammer <esammer@gentoo.org>
423
424 Added SAX parsing. Made GLI.InstallProfile a subclass of xml.sax.ContentHandler for
425 obvious reasons. Switched kernel_modules and users to be lists instead of tuples
426 to allow for easier modification (mutable, rather than immutable objects). Updated
427 existing pydoc and added more. Implemented body of GLI.InstallProfile.parse().
428 Cleaned file format of GLI.py a bit. Fixed all accessors to use self references.
429 Added initial unit test code.
430
431 9 Feb 2004; Eric Sammer <esammer@gentoo.org>
432
433 Added initial changelog. Setting up the basic structure of the CVS repository
434 for the project. Added the UML class diagram in docs. Added a skeletal GLI
435 python module. Added misc files such news, authors, etc.
