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

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

132 sed to properly strip out junk.
133
134 2 Apr 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>

136 added --emptytree to stage2. fixed ethx not being added to runlevel defalt.
137
138 31 Mar 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
139 Fixed indent problem in GLICController
140
141 30 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
142 Check for disklabel type "loop" and use the device name without a minor.
143
144 29 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
145 Remove /tmp/compile_output.log and /var/log/install.log when install is
146 complete. Added code to (hopefully) keep 2nd thread running after install.
147 Patch from zahna for extra arguments to the kernel. Patch from zahna to add
148 get_eth_info() function. Remove most of content in amd64ArchTemplate and
149 make it inherit from x86Archtemplate. kernel_args -> bootloader_kernel_args
150
151 28 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
152 Added 'append_log=True' to all spawn() calls using logfile=. Append to log
153 when unpacking tarball.
154
155 28 Mar 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
156 rewrote filesystem_tools. looks like it works so ripping out all the old
157 filesystem_tools code.
158
159 26 Mar 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
160 Changed the print statements to logging in the partitioning BE code.
161 the logger may need to be imported to the x86archtemplate. unknown yet.
162 Added the finishing_cleanup function.
163 added a fix to the logger from BenUrban
164
165 25 Mar 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
166 changed InstallProfile to remove is_uri check on kernel, stage, and portage
167 URIs. The blank uri check has been commented out.
168 ripped out error checking of set_services. this is done by _add_to_runlevel.
169
170 25 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
171 set_stage_tarball_uri() doesn't raise an exception on a blank string.
172
173 24 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
174 GRP-ish quickpkg code pulls PKGDIR and PORTAGE_TMPDIR from make.conf info in
175 the install profile if available. Commented out spawn() debugging prints
176
177 23 Mar 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
178 small changes to setup_network_post. moved adding to runlevel of net.x to
179 after the device gets symlinked. added domainname runlevel command.
180
181 23 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
182 minor fix (hopefully) to livecd-kernel code. Removed call to mkvardb in
183 livecd-kernel code as it's now done by catalyst. Switch _emerge() call to
184 spawn() call in livecd-kernel code to pass environment variables.
185 livecd-kernel code pulls PKGDIR and PORTAGE_TMPDIR from make.conf info in
186 the install profile if available.
187
188 23 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
189 Added code to build_kernel() and emerge_kernel_sources() in ArchTemplate
190 to handle installing the livecd kernel into the new system.
191
192 22 Mar 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
193 should emerge hotplug and coldplug before adding them to runlevel.
194
195 21 Mar 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
196 took chroot out of grub_install command.
197
198 21 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
199 Changed chroot wrapper code in spawn() to write the wrapper the python way
200 instead of the bash way to avoid quote conflicts. Added
201 'logfile=self._compile_logfile' to a number of spawn() calls. Added new
202 hash_password() function to GLIUtility. Remove command to 'rm /tmp/spawn.sh'
203 as it breaks the piping.
204
205 20 Mar 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
206 Added the amd64ArchitectureTemplate, mostly a copy of x86 without lilo.
207
208 20 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
209 Added _get_packages_to_emerge() to GLIArchitectureTemplate and calls in
210 stage1() and stage2(). Added 'origminor' parameter to GLIStorageDevice and
211 GLIInstallProfile.
212
213 19 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
214 Fixed a couple bugs in add_netmount() in GLIInstallProfile. spawn() outputs
215 to the actual tty8 with display_on_tty8 flag. Compile output logfile moved
216 into /mnt/gentoo in prepare_chroot()
217
218 18 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
219 Add sigunmask.c contributed by d_m (on freenode) to counteract python's
220 retarted behavior regarding threads and signals. Add code to convert MB/%/*
221 to start/end sectors
222
223 17 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
224 Add 2>&1 to cmd in spawn()
225
226 16 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
227 Modified GLIUtility.exitsuccess() to work with return value from
228 commands.getstatusoutput instead of os.waitpid(). spawn() automatically
229 creates wrapper script for commands run inside chroot so multiple commands
230 and redirection can be used. Change exitsuccess() back. Added 'chmod a+x'
231 for the generated script from spawn()
232
233 16 Mar 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
234 Removed default values for stage tarball URI and portage tree URI from
235 InstallProfile. These should be set by the FEs. also added services step to
236 ArchTemplate and coldplug/hotplug runlevels to the genkernel step.
237 Possibly fixed CC DHCP bug with -n. (thx agaffney)
238
239 14 Mar 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
240 Small fix for setting the default gateway. Also added feature to dialogfe.
241
242 7 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
243 Switched spawn() over to commands.getstatusoutput() instead of fork/waitpid
244
245 1 Mar 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
246 Fixed a bunch of true -> True typos. lots of em
247 only write new resolv.conf if there are dns servers listed.
248
249 1 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
250 Commented out 'display_on_tty8=True' in start_portmap()
251
252 18 Feb 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
253 added progress bar to dialogfe and fix logger bug in ArchTemplate.
254
255 18 Feb 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
256 Created GLISayWhat module. Renamed GLISayWhat to GLILocalization. Moved
257 lang parameter to __init__()
258
259 10 Feb 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
260 updates to TODO list.
261
262 6 Feb 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
263 Initial code for quickpkg GRP support. Fix loop to grab packages from
264 'emerge -p blah'
265
266 6 Feb 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
267 check for dhcp in the network stuff and emerge it if it is.
268 added quickpkg to TODO list
269
270 5 Feb 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
271 Changed the raising of 'warning' exceptions to a simple log of the error
272 so that the installer can continue.
273
274 3 Feb 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
275 Some big changes. First, changed most output to display_on_tty8.
276 Second, added log lines to all templates. Some smaller fixes such as typos.
277 Also did some cleanups of old commented lines.
278
279 1 Feb 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
280 Changed tty8 output to a fifo. Minor GLIStorageDevice fix thanks to BenUrban.
281 Undo change with fix. Escaping fix in GLIStorageDevice.py
282
283 31 Jan 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
284 more updates to TODO list. hopefully we'll soon start removing items instead
285 of adding them.
286
287 29 Jan 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
288 Changed the way GLIStorageDevice.get_max_sectors_for_resize() works
289
290 27 Jan 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
291 updated TODO list. (again)
292
293 25 Jan 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
294 changed output of portmap start to display_on_tty8.
295 fixed bootloader for udev and multiple kernels
296 fixed custom kernel config (again)
297
298 22 Jan 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
299 changed default value of CC._enable_ssh to True because this is smart.
300 added code to allow custom kernel .config. may be unstable and break. sorry.
301
302 21 Jan 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
303 partition() now waits until after it checks for partition flags before delete
304 the partitions :P
305
306 19 Jan 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
307 Updated TODO. swapon failure it temporarily not an error. swapon is an error
308 again. is_uri() check only performed on portage_tree_snapshot_uri if it isn't
309 blank.
310
311 19 Jan 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
312 Various fixes related to the add_users function. Still not yet finished.
313 Added things to the TODO list. Lets start using that!
314
315 18 Jan 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
316 Added code to x86Template to format newly created partitions. Also added
317 some error checking code. GLIStorageDevice passes 'minor' with data to
318 InstallProfile. Added partition() call back in ArchTemplate. Fixed NFS
319 mounting code.
320
321 18 Jan 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
322 Took out unnecessary setting of random livecd root password. the cd already
323 sets it randomly.
324
325 15 Jan 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
326 Took out an unneeded step from CC's run()
327
328 15 Jan 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
329 Attempt at detecting and adding windows partitions to lilo.
330
331 14 Jan 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
332 Added lilo code and cleaned up lilo code. also do_partitioning renamed to
333 partition. fixed misc exit_status => exitstatus typo.
334
335 11 Jan 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
336 Added basic code for resizing filesystems with pyparted. Fixed code for
337 resizing ntfs and ext2/3.
338
339 10 Jan 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
340 Fixed partition() in x86Template so that it scans through logicals and deletes
341 before deleting containing extended partition. Also clears partition table to
342 be safe before third pass.
343
344 08 Jan 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
345 Added mount_network_shares. not able to test it from this computer.
346 will test when i get back to school.
347 also added start_portmap to the client_controller as an always-do.
348 agaffney says this is needed for NFS mounts to work.
349
350 08 Jan 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
351 Partial rewrite of partitioning code in x86Template. No longer shells out to
352 parted to perform actions, now uses all pyparted calls. Code "works" in a
353 test, but still needs lots of TLC. Also modified tests/install.py to work
354 with x86Template and GLIClientConfiguration.
355
356 07 Jan 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
357 Initial move of partitioning code from ArchTemplate to x86Template.
358
359 07 Jan 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
360 Added grp_install and services to InstallProfile. forgot about the set_root_password
361
362 07 Jan 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
363 Fixed a few more edit_configs. fixed a chroot multicommand bug thanks to agaffney.
364 Test Install ran very well (skipping partitioning).
365
366 05 Jan 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
367 My mid-day update. rewrote mount_local_partitions for order of mounting. fixed prepare_chroot
368 rewrote configure_fstab and install_bootloader for new partition format. fixed a few _edit_configs.
369 some may still have eluded me.
370
371 05 Jan 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
372 Overhauled the entire ArchTemplate and did a lot of other misc fixes in order to test it.
373 Just finished mount_local_partitions in GLIArchitectureTemplate
374
375 05 Jan 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
376 Added get_num_sectors() to GLIStorageDevice.
377
378 04 Jan 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
379 GLIStorageDevice now tracks partition boundaries in sectors instead of cylinders.
380 Also now ignores <=100 sectors for free space. Removed remaining depends stuff
381 from GLIInstallProfile.
382
383 20 Dec 2004; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
384 GLIStorageDevice returns "unknown" instead of "" for get_type()
385
386 19 Dec 2004; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
387 Added get_extended_partition() to GLIStorageDevice. Rewrote get_logicals() to
388 actually work. Commented out resizability checking code for speed.
389
390 17 Dec 2004; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
391 Switched to using dumpe2fs to determine free space left in ext2/3 filesystem in
392 GLIStorageDevice at the suggestion of plors
393
394 10 Dec 2004; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
395 Added a function to GLIUtility to pull a value from a make.conf-style config
396 file. Minor type fix to GLIInstallProfile.py
397
398 09 Dec 2004; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
399 Added code in GLIArchitectureTemplate.py to write netmounts into fstab. Separated
400 network mounts from partition data structure in GLIInstallProfile
401
402 27 Nov 2004; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
403 Changed the way GLIStorageDevice.py determines the amount a ext2/3 filesystem
404 can be resized.
405
406 27 Oct 2004; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
407 Added some of the final functions to GLIInstallTemplate.
408 Yes this project is still active despite rare use of the Changelog!
409
410 11 Jun 2004; Nathaniel McCallum <npmccallum@gentoo.org>
411 Added the GLIPartitionTools.py file. This is a temporary insertion of
412 partitioning tools that will eventually go into their own package.
413
414 27 Mar 2004; Nathaniel McCallum <npmccallum@gentoo.org>
415 Added InstallProfileTODO.txt. Added GLIClientConfiguration.py (contains run-time
416 for the program). Added __init__(install_profile, client_configuration) to
417 GLI.InstallProfile. This sets install_profile and client_configuration once so as
418 to avoid constantly passing stuff every time we call a method.
419
420 26 Mar 2004; Nathaniel McCallum <npmccallum@gentoo.org>
421
422 Added another private method to GLI.InstallTemplate. _edit_config() modifies config
423 files without messing up all the other stuff in them. This will be used for making
424 changes to make.conf, rc.conf, /etc/conf.d/net, etc...
425
426 25 Mar 2004; Nathaniel McCallum <npmccallum@gentoo.org>
427
428 Added GLI.InstallTemplate framework. This is not yet functional. However, it does
429 have a few basic things. I added two private methods. One is _depends(). This
430 will be used for dependency checking (ie. unpacking a tarball requires that
431 partitioning has been done). The other is _exec_in_chroot(). This is the exact
432 same syntax as os.system(), however, instead of being run in the liveCD
433 environment, it runs in the chroot. This requires a bit of fork() magic, so I
434 isolated the code. Hope to work more this week to get this class formed...
435

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