98
99 16 Apr 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>

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

121
122 10 Apr 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
123 tidy_partitions() function in GLIStorageDevice. Tweaks to tidy code

133 sed to properly strip out junk.
134
135 2 Apr 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>

137 added --emptytree to stage2. fixed ethx not being added to runlevel defalt.
138
139 31 Mar 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
140 Fixed indent problem in GLICController
141
142 30 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
143 Check for disklabel type "loop" and use the device name without a minor.
144
145 29 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
146 Remove /tmp/compile_output.log and /var/log/install.log when install is
147 complete. Added code to (hopefully) keep 2nd thread running after install.
148 Patch from zahna for extra arguments to the kernel. Patch from zahna to add
149 get_eth_info() function. Remove most of content in amd64ArchTemplate and
150 make it inherit from x86Archtemplate. kernel_args -> bootloader_kernel_args
151
152 28 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
153 Added 'append_log=True' to all spawn() calls using logfile=. Append to log
154 when unpacking tarball.
155
156 28 Mar 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
157 rewrote filesystem_tools. looks like it works so ripping out all the old
158 filesystem_tools code.
159
160 26 Mar 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
161 Changed the print statements to logging in the partitioning BE code.
162 the logger may need to be imported to the x86archtemplate. unknown yet.
163 Added the finishing_cleanup function.
164 added a fix to the logger from BenUrban
165
166 25 Mar 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
167 changed InstallProfile to remove is_uri check on kernel, stage, and portage
168 URIs. The blank uri check has been commented out.
169 ripped out error checking of set_services. this is done by _add_to_runlevel.
170
171 25 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
172 set_stage_tarball_uri() doesn't raise an exception on a blank string.
173
174 24 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
175 GRP-ish quickpkg code pulls PKGDIR and PORTAGE_TMPDIR from make.conf info in
176 the install profile if available. Commented out spawn() debugging prints
177
178 23 Mar 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
179 small changes to setup_network_post. moved adding to runlevel of net.x to
180 after the device gets symlinked. added domainname runlevel command.
181
182 23 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
183 minor fix (hopefully) to livecd-kernel code. Removed call to mkvardb in
184 livecd-kernel code as it's now done by catalyst. Switch _emerge() call to
185 spawn() call in livecd-kernel code to pass environment variables.
186 livecd-kernel code pulls PKGDIR and PORTAGE_TMPDIR from make.conf info in
187 the install profile if available.
188
189 23 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
190 Added code to build_kernel() and emerge_kernel_sources() in ArchTemplate
191 to handle installing the livecd kernel into the new system.
192
193 22 Mar 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
194 should emerge hotplug and coldplug before adding them to runlevel.
195
196 21 Mar 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
197 took chroot out of grub_install command.
198
199 21 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
200 Changed chroot wrapper code in spawn() to write the wrapper the python way
201 instead of the bash way to avoid quote conflicts. Added
202 'logfile=self._compile_logfile' to a number of spawn() calls. Added new
203 hash_password() function to GLIUtility. Remove command to 'rm /tmp/spawn.sh'
204 as it breaks the piping.
205
206 20 Mar 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
207 Added the amd64ArchitectureTemplate, mostly a copy of x86 without lilo.
208
209 20 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
210 Added _get_packages_to_emerge() to GLIArchitectureTemplate and calls in
211 stage1() and stage2(). Added 'origminor' parameter to GLIStorageDevice and
212 GLIInstallProfile.
213
214 19 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
215 Fixed a couple bugs in add_netmount() in GLIInstallProfile. spawn() outputs
216 to the actual tty8 with display_on_tty8 flag. Compile output logfile moved
217 into /mnt/gentoo in prepare_chroot()
218
219 18 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
220 Add sigunmask.c contributed by d_m (on freenode) to counteract python's
221 retarted behavior regarding threads and signals. Add code to convert MB/%/*
222 to start/end sectors
223
224 17 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
225 Add 2>&1 to cmd in spawn()
226
227 16 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
228 Modified GLIUtility.exitsuccess() to work with return value from
229 commands.getstatusoutput instead of os.waitpid(). spawn() automatically
230 creates wrapper script for commands run inside chroot so multiple commands
231 and redirection can be used. Change exitsuccess() back. Added 'chmod a+x'
232 for the generated script from spawn()
233
234 16 Mar 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
235 Removed default values for stage tarball URI and portage tree URI from
236 InstallProfile. These should be set by the FEs. also added services step to
237 ArchTemplate and coldplug/hotplug runlevels to the genkernel step.
238 Possibly fixed CC DHCP bug with -n. (thx agaffney)
239
240 14 Mar 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
241 Small fix for setting the default gateway. Also added feature to dialogfe.
242
243 7 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
244 Switched spawn() over to commands.getstatusoutput() instead of fork/waitpid
245
246 1 Mar 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
247 Fixed a bunch of true -> True typos. lots of em
248 only write new resolv.conf if there are dns servers listed.
249
250 1 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
251 Commented out 'display_on_tty8=True' in start_portmap()
252
253 18 Feb 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
254 added progress bar to dialogfe and fix logger bug in ArchTemplate.
255
256 18 Feb 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
257 Created GLISayWhat module. Renamed GLISayWhat to GLILocalization. Moved
258 lang parameter to __init__()
259
260 10 Feb 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
261 updates to TODO list.
262
263 6 Feb 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
264 Initial code for quickpkg GRP support. Fix loop to grab packages from
265 'emerge -p blah'
266
267 6 Feb 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
268 check for dhcp in the network stuff and emerge it if it is.
269 added quickpkg to TODO list
270
271 5 Feb 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
272 Changed the raising of 'warning' exceptions to a simple log of the error
273 so that the installer can continue.
274
275 3 Feb 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
276 Some big changes. First, changed most output to display_on_tty8.
277 Second, added log lines to all templates. Some smaller fixes such as typos.
278 Also did some cleanups of old commented lines.
279
280 1 Feb 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
281 Changed tty8 output to a fifo. Minor GLIStorageDevice fix thanks to BenUrban.
282 Undo change with fix. Escaping fix in GLIStorageDevice.py
283
284 31 Jan 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
285 more updates to TODO list. hopefully we'll soon start removing items instead
286 of adding them.
287
288 29 Jan 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
289 Changed the way GLIStorageDevice.get_max_sectors_for_resize() works
290
291 27 Jan 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
292 updated TODO list. (again)
293
294 25 Jan 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>

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

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