109 13 Apr 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
110 Moved 'end >= device_sectors' check out of loop to check for next partition's
111 start point (thanks to Marco Djukic). Fix >4 primary partitions on non-x86.

113 point of logical is now adjusted along with start.
114
115 11 Apr 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
116 Finish overhaul of backend partitioning code. Fixed all bugs that stood in
117 the way of partitioning from a blank disk. Add int() around access to minor

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

437 Added SAX parsing. Made GLI.InstallProfile a subclass of xml.sax.ContentHandler for
438 obvious reasons. Switched kernel_modules and users to be lists instead of tuples
439 to allow for easier modification (mutable, rather than immutable objects). Updated
440 existing pydoc and added more. Implemented body of GLI.InstallProfile.parse().
441 Cleaned file format of GLI.py a bit. Fixed all accessors to use self references.
442 Added initial unit test code.
