87
88 16 Apr 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>

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

119
120 3 Apr 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>

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