13
14 17 May 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
15 Fixed bug in finishing_cleanup(). Fix a late-night coding error in

105
106 16 Apr 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>

118 13 Apr 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
119 Moved 'end >= device_sectors' check out of loop to check for next partition's
120 start point (thanks to Marco Djukic). Fix >4 primary partitions on non-x86.

122 point of logical is now adjusted along with start.
123
124 11 Apr 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
125 Finish overhaul of backend partitioning code. Fixed all bugs that stood in
126 the way of partitioning from a blank disk. Add int() around access to minor
127 key in partition information due to new partition code leaving them as float.
128
129 10 Apr 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
130 tidy_partitions() function in GLIStorageDevice. Tweaks to tidy code

152 29 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
153 Remove /tmp/compile_output.log and /var/log/install.log when install is
154 complete. Added code to (hopefully) keep 2nd thread running after install.
155 Patch from zahna for extra arguments to the kernel. Patch from zahna to add
156 get_eth_info() function. Remove most of content in amd64ArchTemplate and
157 make it inherit from x86Archtemplate. kernel_args -> bootloader_kernel_args
158
159 28 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
160 Added 'append_log=True' to all spawn() calls using logfile=. Append to log
161 when unpacking tarball.
162
163 28 Mar 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
164 rewrote filesystem_tools. looks like it works so ripping out all the old
165 filesystem_tools code.
166
167 26 Mar 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
168 Changed the print statements to logging in the partitioning BE code.
169 the logger may need to be imported to the x86archtemplate. unknown yet.
170 Added the finishing_cleanup function.
171 added a fix to the logger from BenUrban
172
173 25 Mar 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
174 changed InstallProfile to remove is_uri check on kernel, stage, and portage
175 URIs. The blank uri check has been commented out.
176 ripped out error checking of set_services. this is done by _add_to_runlevel.
177
178 25 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
179 set_stage_tarball_uri() doesn't raise an exception on a blank string.

182 GRP-ish quickpkg code pulls PKGDIR and PORTAGE_TMPDIR from make.conf info in
183 the install profile if available. Commented out spawn() debugging prints
184
185 23 Mar 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
186 small changes to setup_network_post. moved adding to runlevel of net.x to
187 after the device gets symlinked. added domainname runlevel command.
188
189 23 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
190 minor fix (hopefully) to livecd-kernel code. Removed call to mkvardb in
191 livecd-kernel code as it's now done by catalyst. Switch _emerge() call to
192 spawn() call in livecd-kernel code to pass environment variables.
193 livecd-kernel code pulls PKGDIR and PORTAGE_TMPDIR from make.conf info in
194 the install profile if available.
195
196 23 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
197 Added code to build_kernel() and emerge_kernel_sources() in ArchTemplate
198 to handle installing the livecd kernel into the new system.
199
200 22 Mar 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
201 should emerge hotplug and coldplug before adding them to runlevel.
202
203 21 Mar 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
204 took chroot out of grub_install command.
205
206 21 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
207 Changed chroot wrapper code in spawn() to write the wrapper the python way
208 instead of the bash way to avoid quote conflicts. Added
209 'logfile=self._compile_logfile' to a number of spawn() calls. Added new
210 hash_password() function to GLIUtility. Remove command to 'rm /tmp/spawn.sh'
211 as it breaks the piping.
212
213 20 Mar 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
214 Added the amd64ArchitectureTemplate, mostly a copy of x86 without lilo.
215
216 20 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
217 Added _get_packages_to_emerge() to GLIArchitectureTemplate and calls in
218 stage1() and stage2(). Added 'origminor' parameter to GLIStorageDevice and
219 GLIInstallProfile.
220
221 19 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
222 Fixed a couple bugs in add_netmount() in GLIInstallProfile. spawn() outputs
223 to the actual tty8 with display_on_tty8 flag. Compile output logfile moved
224 into /mnt/gentoo in prepare_chroot()
225
226 18 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
227 Add sigunmask.c contributed by d_m (on freenode) to counteract python's
228 retarted behavior regarding threads and signals. Add code to convert MB/%/*
229 to start/end sectors
230
231 17 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
232 Add 2>&1 to cmd in spawn()
233
234 16 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
235 Modified GLIUtility.exitsuccess() to work with return value from
236 commands.getstatusoutput instead of os.waitpid(). spawn() automatically
237 creates wrapper script for commands run inside chroot so multiple commands
238 and redirection can be used. Change exitsuccess() back. Added 'chmod a+x'
239 for the generated script from spawn()
240
241 16 Mar 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
242 Removed default values for stage tarball URI and portage tree URI from
243 InstallProfile. These should be set by the FEs. also added services step to
244 ArchTemplate and coldplug/hotplug runlevels to the genkernel step.
245 Possibly fixed CC DHCP bug with -n. (thx agaffney)
246
247 14 Mar 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
248 Small fix for setting the default gateway. Also added feature to dialogfe.
249
250 7 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
251 Switched spawn() over to commands.getstatusoutput() instead of fork/waitpid
252
253 1 Mar 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
254 Fixed a bunch of true -> True typos. lots of em
255 only write new resolv.conf if there are dns servers listed.
256
257 1 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
258 Commented out 'display_on_tty8=True' in start_portmap()
259
260 18 Feb 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
261 added progress bar to dialogfe and fix logger bug in ArchTemplate.
262
263 18 Feb 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>

273
274 6 Feb 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
275 check for dhcp in the network stuff and emerge it if it is.
276 added quickpkg to TODO list
277
278 5 Feb 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
279 Changed the raising of 'warning' exceptions to a simple log of the error
280 so that the installer can continue.
281
282 3 Feb 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
283 Some big changes. First, changed most output to display_on_tty8.
284 Second, added log lines to all templates. Some smaller fixes such as typos.
285 Also did some cleanups of old commented lines.
286
287 1 Feb 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
288 Changed tty8 output to a fifo. Minor GLIStorageDevice fix thanks to BenUrban.
289 Undo change with fix. Escaping fix in GLIStorageDevice.py
290
291 31 Jan 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
292 more updates to TODO list. hopefully we'll soon start removing items instead
293 of adding them.
294

308 added code to allow custom kernel .config. may be unstable and break. sorry.
309
310 21 Jan 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
311 partition() now waits until after it checks for partition flags before delete
312 the partitions :P
313
314 19 Jan 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
315 Updated TODO. swapon failure it temporarily not an error. swapon is an error
316 again. is_uri() check only performed on portage_tree_snapshot_uri if it isn't
317 blank.
318
319 19 Jan 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
320 Various fixes related to the add_users function. Still not yet finished.
321 Added things to the TODO list. Lets start using that!
322
323 18 Jan 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
324 Added code to x86Template to format newly created partitions. Also added
325 some error checking code. GLIStorageDevice passes 'minor' with data to
326 InstallProfile. Added partition() call back in ArchTemplate. Fixed NFS
327 mounting code.
328
329 18 Jan 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
330 Took out unnecessary setting of random livecd root password. the cd already
331 sets it randomly.
332

345 resizing ntfs and ext2/3.
346
347 10 Jan 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
348 Fixed partition() in x86Template so that it scans through logicals and deletes
349 before deleting containing extended partition. Also clears partition table to
350 be safe before third pass.
351
352 08 Jan 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
353 Added mount_network_shares. not able to test it from this computer.
354 will test when i get back to school.
355 also added start_portmap to the client_controller as an always-do.
356 agaffney says this is needed for NFS mounts to work.
357
358 08 Jan 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
359 Partial rewrite of partitioning code in x86Template. No longer shells out to
360 parted to perform actions, now uses all pyparted calls. Code "works" in a
361 test, but still needs lots of TLC. Also modified tests/install.py to work
362 with x86Template and GLIClientConfiguration.
363
364 07 Jan 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
365 Initial move of partitioning code from ArchTemplate to x86Template.
366

370 07 Jan 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
371 Fixed a few more edit_configs. fixed a chroot multicommand bug thanks to agaffney.
372 Test Install ran very well (skipping partitioning).
373
374 05 Jan 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
375 My mid-day update. rewrote mount_local_partitions for order of mounting. fixed prepare_chroot
376 rewrote configure_fstab and install_bootloader for new partition format. fixed a few _edit_configs.
377 some may still have eluded me.
378
379 05 Jan 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
380 Overhauled the entire ArchTemplate and did a lot of other misc fixes in order to test it.
381 Just finished mount_local_partitions in GLIArchitectureTemplate
382
383 05 Jan 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
384 Added get_num_sectors() to GLIStorageDevice.
385
386 04 Jan 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
387 GLIStorageDevice now tracks partition boundaries in sectors instead of cylinders.
388 Also now ignores <=100 sectors for free space. Removed remaining depends stuff
389 from GLIInstallProfile.
390
391 20 Dec 2004; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
392 GLIStorageDevice returns "unknown" instead of "" for get_type()
393
394 19 Dec 2004; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
395 Added get_extended_partition() to GLIStorageDevice. Rewrote get_logicals() to
396 actually work. Commented out resizability checking code for speed.
397
398 17 Dec 2004; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
399 Switched to using dumpe2fs to determine free space left in ext2/3 filesystem in
400 GLIStorageDevice at the suggestion of plors
401
402 10 Dec 2004; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
403 Added a function to GLIUtility to pull a value from a make.conf-style config
404 file. Minor type fix to GLIInstallProfile.py
405
406 09 Dec 2004; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
407 Added code in GLIArchitectureTemplate.py to write netmounts into fstab. Separated
408 network mounts from partition data structure in GLIInstallProfile
409
410 27 Nov 2004; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
411 Changed the way GLIStorageDevice.py determines the amount a ext2/3 filesystem
412 can be resized.
413
414 27 Oct 2004; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
415 Added some of the final functions to GLIInstallTemplate.
416 Yes this project is still active despite rare use of the Changelog!
417
418 11 Jun 2004; Nathaniel McCallum <npmccallum@gentoo.org>
419 Added the GLIPartitionTools.py file. This is a temporary insertion of
420 partitioning tools that will eventually go into their own package.
421
422 27 Mar 2004; Nathaniel McCallum <npmccallum@gentoo.org>
423 Added InstallProfileTODO.txt. Added GLIClientConfiguration.py (contains run-time
424 for the program). Added __init__(install_profile, client_configuration) to
425 GLI.InstallProfile. This sets install_profile and client_configuration once so as
426 to avoid constantly passing stuff every time we call a method.
427
428 26 Mar 2004; Nathaniel McCallum <npmccallum@gentoo.org>
429
430 Added another private method to GLI.InstallTemplate. _edit_config() modifies config
431 files without messing up all the other stuff in them. This will be used for making
432 changes to make.conf, rc.conf, /etc/conf.d/net, etc...
433
434 25 Mar 2004; Nathaniel McCallum <npmccallum@gentoo.org>

436 Added GLI.InstallTemplate framework. This is not yet functional. However, it does
437 have a few basic things. I added two private methods. One is _depends(). This
438 will be used for dependency checking (ie. unpacking a tarball requires that
439 partitioning has been done). The other is _exec_in_chroot(). This is the exact
440 same syntax as os.system(), however, instead of being run in the liveCD
441 environment, it runs in the chroot. This requires a bit of fork() magic, so I
442 isolated the code. Hope to work more this week to get this class formed...

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