90
91 16 Apr 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>

102
103 13 Apr 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
104 Moved 'end >= device_sectors' check out of loop to check for next partition's
105 start point (thanks to Marco Djukic). Fix >4 primary partitions on non-x86.
106 Partitioning code now tracks start/end of extended for placing logicals. End
107 point of logical is now adjusted along with start.
108
109 11 Apr 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
110 Finish overhaul of backend partitioning code. Fixed all bugs that stood in
111 the way of partitioning from a blank disk. Add int() around access to minor
112 key in partition information due to new partition code leaving them as float.
113
114 10 Apr 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
115 tidy_partitions() function in GLIStorageDevice. Tweaks to tidy code
116

121 Added support for DHCP options and MAC addresses in the InstallProfile.
122
123 3 Apr 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>

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