17
18 17 May 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
19 Fixed bug in finishing_cleanup(). Fix a late-night coding error in

109
110 16 Apr 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>

122 13 Apr 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
123 Moved 'end >= device_sectors' check out of loop to check for next partition's
124 start point (thanks to Marco Djukic). Fix >4 primary partitions on non-x86.

126 point of logical is now adjusted along with start.
127
128 11 Apr 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
129 Finish overhaul of backend partitioning code. Fixed all bugs that stood in
130 the way of partitioning from a blank disk. Add int() around access to minor
131 key in partition information due to new partition code leaving them as float.
132
133 10 Apr 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
134 tidy_partitions() function in GLIStorageDevice. Tweaks to tidy code

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

277
278 6 Feb 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
279 check for dhcp in the network stuff and emerge it if it is.
280 added quickpkg to TODO list
281
282 5 Feb 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
283 Changed the raising of 'warning' exceptions to a simple log of the error
284 so that the installer can continue.
285
286 3 Feb 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
287 Some big changes. First, changed most output to display_on_tty8.
288 Second, added log lines to all templates. Some smaller fixes such as typos.
289 Also did some cleanups of old commented lines.
290
291 1 Feb 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
292 Changed tty8 output to a fifo. Minor GLIStorageDevice fix thanks to BenUrban.
293 Undo change with fix. Escaping fix in GLIStorageDevice.py
294
295 31 Jan 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>

312 added code to allow custom kernel .config. may be unstable and break. sorry.
313
314 21 Jan 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
315 partition() now waits until after it checks for partition flags before delete
316 the partitions :P
317
318 19 Jan 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
319 Updated TODO. swapon failure it temporarily not an error. swapon is an error
320 again. is_uri() check only performed on portage_tree_snapshot_uri if it isn't
321 blank.
322
323 19 Jan 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
324 Various fixes related to the add_users function. Still not yet finished.
325 Added things to the TODO list. Lets start using that!
326
327 18 Jan 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
328 Added code to x86Template to format newly created partitions. Also added
329 some error checking code. GLIStorageDevice passes 'minor' with data to
330 InstallProfile. Added partition() call back in ArchTemplate. Fixed NFS
331 mounting code.
332
333 18 Jan 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>

349 resizing ntfs and ext2/3.
350
351 10 Jan 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
352 Fixed partition() in x86Template so that it scans through logicals and deletes
353 before deleting containing extended partition. Also clears partition table to
354 be safe before third pass.
355
356 08 Jan 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
357 Added mount_network_shares. not able to test it from this computer.
358 will test when i get back to school.
359 also added start_portmap to the client_controller as an always-do.
360 agaffney says this is needed for NFS mounts to work.
361
362 08 Jan 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
363 Partial rewrite of partitioning code in x86Template. No longer shells out to
364 parted to perform actions, now uses all pyparted calls. Code "works" in a
365 test, but still needs lots of TLC. Also modified tests/install.py to work
366 with x86Template and GLIClientConfiguration.
367
368 07 Jan 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
369 Initial move of partitioning code from ArchTemplate to x86Template.
370

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

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

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

460 for the project. Added the UML class diagram in docs. Added a skeletal GLI
461 python module. Added misc files such news, authors, etc.
