93
94 16 Apr 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>

106 13 Apr 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
107 Moved 'end >= device_sectors' check out of loop to check for next partition's
108 start point (thanks to Marco Djukic). Fix >4 primary partitions on non-x86.
109 Partitioning code now tracks start/end of extended for placing logicals. End
110 point of logical is now adjusted along with start.
111
112 11 Apr 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
113 Finish overhaul of backend partitioning code. Fixed all bugs that stood in
114 the way of partitioning from a blank disk. Add int() around access to minor
115 key in partition information due to new partition code leaving them as float.
116
117 10 Apr 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
118 tidy_partitions() function in GLIStorageDevice. Tweaks to tidy code

128 sed to properly strip out junk.
129
130 2 Apr 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>

132 added --emptytree to stage2. fixed ethx not being added to runlevel defalt.
133
134 31 Mar 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
135 Fixed indent problem in GLICController
136
137 30 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
138 Check for disklabel type "loop" and use the device name without a minor.
139
140 29 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
141 Remove /tmp/compile_output.log and /var/log/install.log when install is
142 complete. Added code to (hopefully) keep 2nd thread running after install.
143 Patch from zahna for extra arguments to the kernel. Patch from zahna to add
144 get_eth_info() function. Remove most of content in amd64ArchTemplate and
145 make it inherit from x86Archtemplate. kernel_args -> bootloader_kernel_args
146
147 28 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
148 Added 'append_log=True' to all spawn() calls using logfile=. Append to log
149 when unpacking tarball.
150
151 28 Mar 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
152 rewrote filesystem_tools. looks like it works so ripping out all the old
153 filesystem_tools code.
154
155 26 Mar 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
156 Changed the print statements to logging in the partitioning BE code.
157 the logger may need to be imported to the x86archtemplate. unknown yet.
158 Added the finishing_cleanup function.
159 added a fix to the logger from BenUrban
160
161 25 Mar 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
162 changed InstallProfile to remove is_uri check on kernel, stage, and portage
163 URIs. The blank uri check has been commented out.
164 ripped out error checking of set_services. this is done by _add_to_runlevel.
165
166 25 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
167 set_stage_tarball_uri() doesn't raise an exception on a blank string.
168
169 24 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
170 GRP-ish quickpkg code pulls PKGDIR and PORTAGE_TMPDIR from make.conf info in
171 the install profile if available. Commented out spawn() debugging prints
172
173 23 Mar 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
174 small changes to setup_network_post. moved adding to runlevel of net.x to
175 after the device gets symlinked. added domainname runlevel command.
176
177 23 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
178 minor fix (hopefully) to livecd-kernel code. Removed call to mkvardb in
179 livecd-kernel code as it's now done by catalyst. Switch _emerge() call to
180 spawn() call in livecd-kernel code to pass environment variables.
181 livecd-kernel code pulls PKGDIR and PORTAGE_TMPDIR from make.conf info in
182 the install profile if available.
183
184 23 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
185 Added code to build_kernel() and emerge_kernel_sources() in ArchTemplate
186 to handle installing the livecd kernel into the new system.
187
188 22 Mar 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
189 should emerge hotplug and coldplug before adding them to runlevel.
190
191 21 Mar 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
192 took chroot out of grub_install command.
193
194 21 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
195 Changed chroot wrapper code in spawn() to write the wrapper the python way
196 instead of the bash way to avoid quote conflicts. Added
197 'logfile=self._compile_logfile' to a number of spawn() calls. Added new
198 hash_password() function to GLIUtility. Remove command to 'rm /tmp/spawn.sh'
199 as it breaks the piping.
200
201 20 Mar 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
202 Added the amd64ArchitectureTemplate, mostly a copy of x86 without lilo.
203
204 20 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
205 Added _get_packages_to_emerge() to GLIArchitectureTemplate and calls in
206 stage1() and stage2(). Added 'origminor' parameter to GLIStorageDevice and
207 GLIInstallProfile.
208
209 19 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
210 Fixed a couple bugs in add_netmount() in GLIInstallProfile. spawn() outputs
211 to the actual tty8 with display_on_tty8 flag. Compile output logfile moved
212 into /mnt/gentoo in prepare_chroot()
213
214 18 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
215 Add sigunmask.c contributed by d_m (on freenode) to counteract python's
216 retarted behavior regarding threads and signals. Add code to convert MB/%/*
217 to start/end sectors
218
219 17 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
220 Add 2>&1 to cmd in spawn()
221
222 16 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
223 Modified GLIUtility.exitsuccess() to work with return value from
224 commands.getstatusoutput instead of os.waitpid(). spawn() automatically
225 creates wrapper script for commands run inside chroot so multiple commands
226 and redirection can be used. Change exitsuccess() back. Added 'chmod a+x'
227 for the generated script from spawn()
228
229 16 Mar 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
230 Removed default values for stage tarball URI and portage tree URI from
231 InstallProfile. These should be set by the FEs. also added services step to
232 ArchTemplate and coldplug/hotplug runlevels to the genkernel step.
233 Possibly fixed CC DHCP bug with -n. (thx agaffney)
234
235 14 Mar 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
236 Small fix for setting the default gateway. Also added feature to dialogfe.
237
238 7 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
239 Switched spawn() over to commands.getstatusoutput() instead of fork/waitpid
240
241 1 Mar 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
242 Fixed a bunch of true -> True typos. lots of em
243 only write new resolv.conf if there are dns servers listed.
244
245 1 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
246 Commented out 'display_on_tty8=True' in start_portmap()
247
248 18 Feb 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
249 added progress bar to dialogfe and fix logger bug in ArchTemplate.
250
251 18 Feb 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
252 Created GLISayWhat module. Renamed GLISayWhat to GLILocalization. Moved
253 lang parameter to __init__()
254
255 10 Feb 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
256 updates to TODO list.
257
258 6 Feb 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
259 Initial code for quickpkg GRP support. Fix loop to grab packages from
260 'emerge -p blah'
261
262 6 Feb 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
263 check for dhcp in the network stuff and emerge it if it is.
264 added quickpkg to TODO list
265
266 5 Feb 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
267 Changed the raising of 'warning' exceptions to a simple log of the error
268 so that the installer can continue.
269
270 3 Feb 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
271 Some big changes. First, changed most output to display_on_tty8.
272 Second, added log lines to all templates. Some smaller fixes such as typos.
273 Also did some cleanups of old commented lines.
274
275 1 Feb 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
276 Changed tty8 output to a fifo. Minor GLIStorageDevice fix thanks to BenUrban.
277 Undo change with fix. Escaping fix in GLIStorageDevice.py
278
279 31 Jan 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
280 more updates to TODO list. hopefully we'll soon start removing items instead
281 of adding them.
282
283 29 Jan 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
284 Changed the way GLIStorageDevice.get_max_sectors_for_resize() works
285
286 27 Jan 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
287 updated TODO list. (again)
288
289 25 Jan 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>

291 fixed bootloader for udev and multiple kernels
292 fixed custom kernel config (again)
293
294 22 Jan 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
295 changed default value of CC._enable_ssh to True because this is smart.
296 added code to allow custom kernel .config. may be unstable and break. sorry.
297
298 21 Jan 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
299 partition() now waits until after it checks for partition flags before delete
300 the partitions :P
301
302 19 Jan 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
303 Updated TODO. swapon failure it temporarily not an error. swapon is an error
304 again. is_uri() check only performed on portage_tree_snapshot_uri if it isn't
305 blank.
306
307 19 Jan 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
308 Various fixes related to the add_users function. Still not yet finished.
309 Added things to the TODO list. Lets start using that!
310
311 18 Jan 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
312 Added code to x86Template to format newly created partitions. Also added
313 some error checking code. GLIStorageDevice passes 'minor' with data to
314 InstallProfile. Added partition() call back in ArchTemplate. Fixed NFS
315 mounting code.
316
317 18 Jan 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
318 Took out unnecessary setting of random livecd root password. the cd already
319 sets it randomly.
320
321 15 Jan 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
322 Took out an unneeded step from CC's run()
323
324 15 Jan 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
325 Attempt at detecting and adding windows partitions to lilo.
326
327 14 Jan 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
328 Added lilo code and cleaned up lilo code. also do_partitioning renamed to
329 partition. fixed misc exit_status => exitstatus typo.
330
331 11 Jan 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
332 Added basic code for resizing filesystems with pyparted. Fixed code for
333 resizing ntfs and ext2/3.
334
335 10 Jan 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
336 Fixed partition() in x86Template so that it scans through logicals and deletes
337 before deleting containing extended partition. Also clears partition table to
338 be safe before third pass.
339
340 08 Jan 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
341 Added mount_network_shares. not able to test it from this computer.
342 will test when i get back to school.
343 also added start_portmap to the client_controller as an always-do.
344 agaffney says this is needed for NFS mounts to work.
345
346 08 Jan 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
347 Partial rewrite of partitioning code in x86Template. No longer shells out to
348 parted to perform actions, now uses all pyparted calls. Code "works" in a
349 test, but still needs lots of TLC. Also modified tests/install.py to work
350 with x86Template and GLIClientConfiguration.
351
352 07 Jan 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
353 Initial move of partitioning code from ArchTemplate to x86Template.
354
355 07 Jan 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
356 Added grp_install and services to InstallProfile. forgot about the set_root_password
357
358 07 Jan 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
359 Fixed a few more edit_configs. fixed a chroot multicommand bug thanks to agaffney.
360 Test Install ran very well (skipping partitioning).
361
362 05 Jan 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
363 My mid-day update. rewrote mount_local_partitions for order of mounting. fixed prepare_chroot
364 rewrote configure_fstab and install_bootloader for new partition format. fixed a few _edit_configs.
365 some may still have eluded me.
366
367 05 Jan 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
368 Overhauled the entire ArchTemplate and did a lot of other misc fixes in order to test it.
369 Just finished mount_local_partitions in GLIArchitectureTemplate
370
371 05 Jan 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
372 Added get_num_sectors() to GLIStorageDevice.
373
374 04 Jan 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
375 GLIStorageDevice now tracks partition boundaries in sectors instead of cylinders.
376 Also now ignores <=100 sectors for free space. Removed remaining depends stuff
377 from GLIInstallProfile.
378
379 20 Dec 2004; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
380 GLIStorageDevice returns "unknown" instead of "" for get_type()
381
382 19 Dec 2004; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
383 Added get_extended_partition() to GLIStorageDevice. Rewrote get_logicals() to
384 actually work. Commented out resizability checking code for speed.
385
386 17 Dec 2004; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
387 Switched to using dumpe2fs to determine free space left in ext2/3 filesystem in
388 GLIStorageDevice at the suggestion of plors
389
390 10 Dec 2004; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
391 Added a function to GLIUtility to pull a value from a make.conf-style config
392 file. Minor type fix to GLIInstallProfile.py
393
394 09 Dec 2004; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
395 Added code in GLIArchitectureTemplate.py to write netmounts into fstab. Separated
396 network mounts from partition data structure in GLIInstallProfile
397
398 27 Nov 2004; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
399 Changed the way GLIStorageDevice.py determines the amount a ext2/3 filesystem
400 can be resized.
401
402 27 Oct 2004; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
403 Added some of the final functions to GLIInstallTemplate.
404 Yes this project is still active despite rare use of the Changelog!
405
406 11 Jun 2004; Nathaniel McCallum <npmccallum@gentoo.org>
407 Added the GLIPartitionTools.py file. This is a temporary insertion of
408 partitioning tools that will eventually go into their own package.
409
410 27 Mar 2004; Nathaniel McCallum <npmccallum@gentoo.org>
411 Added InstallProfileTODO.txt. Added GLIClientConfiguration.py (contains run-time
412 for the program). Added __init__(install_profile, client_configuration) to
413 GLI.InstallProfile. This sets install_profile and client_configuration once so as
414 to avoid constantly passing stuff every time we call a method.
415
416 26 Mar 2004; Nathaniel McCallum <npmccallum@gentoo.org>
417
418 Added another private method to GLI.InstallTemplate. _edit_config() modifies config
419 files without messing up all the other stuff in them. This will be used for making
420 changes to make.conf, rc.conf, /etc/conf.d/net, etc...
421
422 25 Mar 2004; Nathaniel McCallum <npmccallum@gentoo.org>
423
424 Added GLI.InstallTemplate framework. This is not yet functional. However, it does
425 have a few basic things. I added two private methods. One is _depends(). This
426 will be used for dependency checking (ie. unpacking a tarball requires that
427 partitioning has been done). The other is _exec_in_chroot(). This is the exact
428 same syntax as os.system(), however, instead of being run in the liveCD
429 environment, it runs in the chroot. This requires a bit of fork() magic, so I
430 isolated the code. Hope to work more this week to get this class formed...
431
432 14 Feb 2004; Eric Sammer <esammer@gentoo.org>
433
434 Added SAX parsing. Made GLI.InstallProfile a subclass of xml.sax.ContentHandler for
435 obvious reasons. Switched kernel_modules and users to be lists instead of tuples
436 to allow for easier modification (mutable, rather than immutable objects). Updated

439 Added initial unit test code.
