9
10 17 May 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
11 Fixed bug in finishing_cleanup(). Fix a late-night coding error in

101
102 16 Apr 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>

114 13 Apr 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
115 Moved 'end >= device_sectors' check out of loop to check for next partition's
116 start point (thanks to Marco Djukic). Fix >4 primary partitions on non-x86.
117 Partitioning code now tracks start/end of extended for placing logicals. End
118 point of logical is now adjusted along with start.
119
120 11 Apr 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
121 Finish overhaul of backend partitioning code. Fixed all bugs that stood in
122 the way of partitioning from a blank disk. Add int() around access to minor
123 key in partition information due to new partition code leaving them as float.
124
125 10 Apr 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
126 tidy_partitions() function in GLIStorageDevice. Tweaks to tidy code

136 sed to properly strip out junk.
137
138 2 Apr 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>

147
148 29 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
149 Remove /tmp/compile_output.log and /var/log/install.log when install is
150 complete. Added code to (hopefully) keep 2nd thread running after install.
151 Patch from zahna for extra arguments to the kernel. Patch from zahna to add
152 get_eth_info() function. Remove most of content in amd64ArchTemplate and
153 make it inherit from x86Archtemplate. kernel_args -> bootloader_kernel_args
154
155 28 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
156 Added 'append_log=True' to all spawn() calls using logfile=. Append to log
157 when unpacking tarball.
158
159 28 Mar 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
160 rewrote filesystem_tools. looks like it works so ripping out all the old
161 filesystem_tools code.
162
163 26 Mar 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
164 Changed the print statements to logging in the partitioning BE code.
165 the logger may need to be imported to the x86archtemplate. unknown yet.
166 Added the finishing_cleanup function.
167 added a fix to the logger from BenUrban
168
169 25 Mar 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
170 changed InstallProfile to remove is_uri check on kernel, stage, and portage
171 URIs. The blank uri check has been commented out.
172 ripped out error checking of set_services. this is done by _add_to_runlevel.
173
174 25 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
175 set_stage_tarball_uri() doesn't raise an exception on a blank string.
176
177 24 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
178 GRP-ish quickpkg code pulls PKGDIR and PORTAGE_TMPDIR from make.conf info in
179 the install profile if available. Commented out spawn() debugging prints
180
181 23 Mar 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
182 small changes to setup_network_post. moved adding to runlevel of net.x to
183 after the device gets symlinked. added domainname runlevel command.
184
185 23 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
186 minor fix (hopefully) to livecd-kernel code. Removed call to mkvardb in
187 livecd-kernel code as it's now done by catalyst. Switch _emerge() call to
188 spawn() call in livecd-kernel code to pass environment variables.
189 livecd-kernel code pulls PKGDIR and PORTAGE_TMPDIR from make.conf info in
190 the install profile if available.
191
192 23 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
193 Added code to build_kernel() and emerge_kernel_sources() in ArchTemplate
194 to handle installing the livecd kernel into the new system.
195
196 22 Mar 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
197 should emerge hotplug and coldplug before adding them to runlevel.
198
199 21 Mar 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
200 took chroot out of grub_install command.
201
202 21 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
203 Changed chroot wrapper code in spawn() to write the wrapper the python way
204 instead of the bash way to avoid quote conflicts. Added
205 'logfile=self._compile_logfile' to a number of spawn() calls. Added new
206 hash_password() function to GLIUtility. Remove command to 'rm /tmp/spawn.sh'
207 as it breaks the piping.
208
209 20 Mar 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
210 Added the amd64ArchitectureTemplate, mostly a copy of x86 without lilo.
211
212 20 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
213 Added _get_packages_to_emerge() to GLIArchitectureTemplate and calls in
214 stage1() and stage2(). Added 'origminor' parameter to GLIStorageDevice and
215 GLIInstallProfile.
216
217 19 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
218 Fixed a couple bugs in add_netmount() in GLIInstallProfile. spawn() outputs
219 to the actual tty8 with display_on_tty8 flag. Compile output logfile moved
220 into /mnt/gentoo in prepare_chroot()
221
222 18 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
223 Add sigunmask.c contributed by d_m (on freenode) to counteract python's
224 retarted behavior regarding threads and signals. Add code to convert MB/%/*
225 to start/end sectors
226
227 17 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
228 Add 2>&1 to cmd in spawn()
229
230 16 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
231 Modified GLIUtility.exitsuccess() to work with return value from
232 commands.getstatusoutput instead of os.waitpid(). spawn() automatically
233 creates wrapper script for commands run inside chroot so multiple commands
234 and redirection can be used. Change exitsuccess() back. Added 'chmod a+x'
235 for the generated script from spawn()
236
237 16 Mar 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
238 Removed default values for stage tarball URI and portage tree URI from
239 InstallProfile. These should be set by the FEs. also added services step to
240 ArchTemplate and coldplug/hotplug runlevels to the genkernel step.
241 Possibly fixed CC DHCP bug with -n. (thx agaffney)
242
243 14 Mar 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
244 Small fix for setting the default gateway. Also added feature to dialogfe.
245
246 7 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
247 Switched spawn() over to commands.getstatusoutput() instead of fork/waitpid
248
249 1 Mar 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
250 Fixed a bunch of true -> True typos. lots of em
251 only write new resolv.conf if there are dns servers listed.
252
253 1 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
254 Commented out 'display_on_tty8=True' in start_portmap()
255
256 18 Feb 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
257 added progress bar to dialogfe and fix logger bug in ArchTemplate.
258
259 18 Feb 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
260 Created GLISayWhat module. Renamed GLISayWhat to GLILocalization. Moved
261 lang parameter to __init__()
262
263 10 Feb 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
264 updates to TODO list.
265
266 6 Feb 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
267 Initial code for quickpkg GRP support. Fix loop to grab packages from
268 'emerge -p blah'
269
270 6 Feb 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
271 check for dhcp in the network stuff and emerge it if it is.
272 added quickpkg to TODO list
273
274 5 Feb 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
275 Changed the raising of 'warning' exceptions to a simple log of the error
276 so that the installer can continue.
277
278 3 Feb 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
279 Some big changes. First, changed most output to display_on_tty8.
280 Second, added log lines to all templates. Some smaller fixes such as typos.
281 Also did some cleanups of old commented lines.
282
283 1 Feb 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
284 Changed tty8 output to a fifo. Minor GLIStorageDevice fix thanks to BenUrban.
285 Undo change with fix. Escaping fix in GLIStorageDevice.py
286
287 31 Jan 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
288 more updates to TODO list. hopefully we'll soon start removing items instead
289 of adding them.
290
291 29 Jan 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
292 Changed the way GLIStorageDevice.get_max_sectors_for_resize() works
293
294 27 Jan 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
295 updated TODO list. (again)
296
297 25 Jan 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>

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

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