85 code.
86
87 16 Apr 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>

99 13 Apr 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
100 Moved 'end >= device_sectors' check out of loop to check for next partition's
101 start point (thanks to Marco Djukic). Fix >4 primary partitions on non-x86.
102 Partitioning code now tracks start/end of extended for placing logicals. End
103 point of logical is now adjusted along with start.
104
105 11 Apr 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
106 Finish overhaul of backend partitioning code. Fixed all bugs that stood in
107 the way of partitioning from a blank disk. Add int() around access to minor
108 key in partition information due to new partition code leaving them as float.
109
110 10 Apr 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
111 tidy_partitions() function in GLIStorageDevice. Tweaks to tidy code

118
119 3 Apr 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>

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