127 Moved 'end >= device_sectors' check out of loop to check for next partition's
128 start point (thanks to Marco Djukic). Fix >4 primary partitions on non-x86.

130 point of logical is now adjusted along with start.
131
132 11 Apr 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
133 Finish overhaul of backend partitioning code. Fixed all bugs that stood in
134 the way of partitioning from a blank disk. Add int() around access to minor
135 key in partition information due to new partition code leaving them as float.
136
137 10 Apr 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
138 tidy_partitions() function in GLIStorageDevice. Tweaks to tidy code

160 29 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
161 Remove /tmp/compile_output.log and /var/log/install.log when install is
162 complete. Added code to (hopefully) keep 2nd thread running after install.
163 Patch from zahna for extra arguments to the kernel. Patch from zahna to add
164 get_eth_info() function. Remove most of content in amd64ArchTemplate and
165 make it inherit from x86Archtemplate. kernel_args -> bootloader_kernel_args
166
167 28 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
168 Added 'append_log=True' to all spawn() calls using logfile=. Append to log
169 when unpacking tarball.
170
171 28 Mar 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
172 rewrote filesystem_tools. looks like it works so ripping out all the old
173 filesystem_tools code.
174
175 26 Mar 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
176 Changed the print statements to logging in the partitioning BE code.
177 the logger may need to be imported to the x86archtemplate. unknown yet.

179 added a fix to the logger from BenUrban
180
181 25 Mar 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
182 changed InstallProfile to remove is_uri check on kernel, stage, and portage
183 URIs. The blank uri check has been commented out.
184 ripped out error checking of set_services. this is done by _add_to_runlevel.
185
186 25 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
187 set_stage_tarball_uri() doesn't raise an exception on a blank string.
188
189 24 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
190 GRP-ish quickpkg code pulls PKGDIR and PORTAGE_TMPDIR from make.conf info in
191 the install profile if available. Commented out spawn() debugging prints
192
193 23 Mar 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
194 small changes to setup_network_post. moved adding to runlevel of net.x to
195 after the device gets symlinked. added domainname runlevel command.
196
197 23 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
198 minor fix (hopefully) to livecd-kernel code. Removed call to mkvardb in
199 livecd-kernel code as it's now done by catalyst. Switch _emerge() call to
200 spawn() call in livecd-kernel code to pass environment variables.
201 livecd-kernel code pulls PKGDIR and PORTAGE_TMPDIR from make.conf info in
202 the install profile if available.
203
204 23 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
205 Added code to build_kernel() and emerge_kernel_sources() in ArchTemplate
206 to handle installing the livecd kernel into the new system.
207
208 22 Mar 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
209 should emerge hotplug and coldplug before adding them to runlevel.
210
211 21 Mar 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
212 took chroot out of grub_install command.
213
214 21 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
215 Changed chroot wrapper code in spawn() to write the wrapper the python way
216 instead of the bash way to avoid quote conflicts. Added
217 'logfile=self._compile_logfile' to a number of spawn() calls. Added new
218 hash_password() function to GLIUtility. Remove command to 'rm /tmp/spawn.sh'
219 as it breaks the piping.
220
221 20 Mar 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
222 Added the amd64ArchitectureTemplate, mostly a copy of x86 without lilo.
223
224 20 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
225 Added _get_packages_to_emerge() to GLIArchitectureTemplate and calls in
226 stage1() and stage2(). Added 'origminor' parameter to GLIStorageDevice and
227 GLIInstallProfile.
228
229 19 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
230 Fixed a couple bugs in add_netmount() in GLIInstallProfile. spawn() outputs
231 to the actual tty8 with display_on_tty8 flag. Compile output logfile moved
232 into /mnt/gentoo in prepare_chroot()
233
234 18 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
235 Add sigunmask.c contributed by d_m (on freenode) to counteract python's
236 retarted behavior regarding threads and signals. Add code to convert MB/%/*
237 to start/end sectors
238
239 17 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
240 Add 2>&1 to cmd in spawn()
241
242 16 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
243 Modified GLIUtility.exitsuccess() to work with return value from
244 commands.getstatusoutput instead of os.waitpid(). spawn() automatically
245 creates wrapper script for commands run inside chroot so multiple commands
246 and redirection can be used. Change exitsuccess() back. Added 'chmod a+x'
247 for the generated script from spawn()
248
249 16 Mar 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
250 Removed default values for stage tarball URI and portage tree URI from
251 InstallProfile. These should be set by the FEs. also added services step to
252 ArchTemplate and coldplug/hotplug runlevels to the genkernel step.
253 Possibly fixed CC DHCP bug with -n. (thx agaffney)
254
255 14 Mar 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
256 Small fix for setting the default gateway. Also added feature to dialogfe.
257
258 7 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
259 Switched spawn() over to commands.getstatusoutput() instead of fork/waitpid
260
261 1 Mar 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
262 Fixed a bunch of true -> True typos. lots of em
263 only write new resolv.conf if there are dns servers listed.
264
265 1 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
266 Commented out 'display_on_tty8=True' in start_portmap()
267
268 18 Feb 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>

282 6 Feb 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
283 check for dhcp in the network stuff and emerge it if it is.

285
286 5 Feb 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
287 Changed the raising of 'warning' exceptions to a simple log of the error
288 so that the installer can continue.
289
290 3 Feb 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
291 Some big changes. First, changed most output to display_on_tty8.
292 Second, added log lines to all templates. Some smaller fixes such as typos.
293 Also did some cleanups of old commented lines.
294
295 1 Feb 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
296 Changed tty8 output to a fifo. Minor GLIStorageDevice fix thanks to BenUrban.
297 Undo change with fix. Escaping fix in GLIStorageDevice.py
298

317
318 21 Jan 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
319 partition() now waits until after it checks for partition flags before delete
320 the partitions :P
321
322 19 Jan 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
323 Updated TODO. swapon failure it temporarily not an error. swapon is an error
324 again. is_uri() check only performed on portage_tree_snapshot_uri if it isn't
325 blank.
326
327 19 Jan 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
328 Various fixes related to the add_users function. Still not yet finished.

330
331 18 Jan 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
332 Added code to x86Template to format newly created partitions. Also added
333 some error checking code. GLIStorageDevice passes 'minor' with data to
334 InstallProfile. Added partition() call back in ArchTemplate. Fixed NFS
335 mounting code.
336
337 18 Jan 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>

353 resizing ntfs and ext2/3.
354
355 10 Jan 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
356 Fixed partition() in x86Template so that it scans through logicals and deletes
357 before deleting containing extended partition. Also clears partition table to
358 be safe before third pass.
359
360 08 Jan 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
361 Added mount_network_shares. not able to test it from this computer.
362 will test when i get back to school.
363 also added start_portmap to the client_controller as an always-do.
364 agaffney says this is needed for NFS mounts to work.
365
366 08 Jan 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
367 Partial rewrite of partitioning code in x86Template. No longer shells out to
368 parted to perform actions, now uses all pyparted calls. Code "works" in a
369 test, but still needs lots of TLC. Also modified tests/install.py to work
370 with x86Template and GLIClientConfiguration.
371
372 07 Jan 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
373 Initial move of partitioning code from ArchTemplate to x86Template.

379 Fixed a few more edit_configs. fixed a chroot multicommand bug thanks to agaffney.
380 Test Install ran very well (skipping partitioning).
381
382 05 Jan 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
383 My mid-day update. rewrote mount_local_partitions for order of mounting. fixed prepare_chroot
384 rewrote configure_fstab and install_bootloader for new partition format. fixed a few _edit_configs.
385 some may still have eluded me.
386
387 05 Jan 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
388 Overhauled the entire ArchTemplate and did a lot of other misc fixes in order to test it.
389 Just finished mount_local_partitions in GLIArchitectureTemplate
390
391 05 Jan 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
392 Added get_num_sectors() to GLIStorageDevice.
393
394 04 Jan 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
395 GLIStorageDevice now tracks partition boundaries in sectors instead of cylinders.
396 Also now ignores <=100 sectors for free space. Removed remaining depends stuff
397 from GLIInstallProfile.
398
399 20 Dec 2004; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
400 GLIStorageDevice returns "unknown" instead of "" for get_type()
401
402 19 Dec 2004; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
403 Added get_extended_partition() to GLIStorageDevice. Rewrote get_logicals() to
404 actually work. Commented out resizability checking code for speed.
405
406 17 Dec 2004; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
407 Switched to using dumpe2fs to determine free space left in ext2/3 filesystem in
408 GLIStorageDevice at the suggestion of plors
409
410 10 Dec 2004; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
411 Added a function to GLIUtility to pull a value from a make.conf-style config
412 file. Minor type fix to GLIInstallProfile.py
413
414 09 Dec 2004; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
415 Added code in GLIArchitectureTemplate.py to write netmounts into fstab. Separated
416 network mounts from partition data structure in GLIInstallProfile
417
418 27 Nov 2004; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
419 Changed the way GLIStorageDevice.py determines the amount a ext2/3 filesystem
420 can be resized.
421
422 27 Oct 2004; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
423 Added some of the final functions to GLIInstallTemplate.
424 Yes this project is still active despite rare use of the Changelog!
425
426 11 Jun 2004; Nathaniel McCallum <npmccallum@gentoo.org>
427 Added the GLIPartitionTools.py file. This is a temporary insertion of
428 partitioning tools that will eventually go into their own package.
429
430 27 Mar 2004; Nathaniel McCallum <npmccallum@gentoo.org>
431 Added InstallProfileTODO.txt. Added GLIClientConfiguration.py (contains run-time
432 for the program). Added __init__(install_profile, client_configuration) to
433 GLI.InstallProfile. This sets install_profile and client_configuration once so as
434 to avoid constantly passing stuff every time we call a method.
435

438 Added another private method to GLI.InstallTemplate. _edit_config() modifies config
439 files without messing up all the other stuff in them. This will be used for making
440 changes to make.conf, rc.conf, /etc/conf.d/net, etc...

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

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

463 Added initial changelog. Setting up the basic structure of the CVS repository
464 for the project. Added the UML class diagram in docs. Added a skeletal GLI
465 python module. Added misc files such news, authors, etc.
