137 Finish overhaul of backend partitioning code. Fixed all bugs that stood in
138 the way of partitioning from a blank disk. Add int() around access to minor

164 29 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
165 Remove /tmp/compile_output.log and /var/log/install.log when install is
166 complete. Added code to (hopefully) keep 2nd thread running after install.
167 Patch from zahna for extra arguments to the kernel. Patch from zahna to add
168 get_eth_info() function. Remove most of content in amd64ArchTemplate and
169 make it inherit from x86Archtemplate. kernel_args -> bootloader_kernel_args
170
171 28 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
172 Added 'append_log=True' to all spawn() calls using logfile=. Append to log
173 when unpacking tarball.
174
175 28 Mar 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
176 rewrote filesystem_tools. looks like it works so ripping out all the old
177 filesystem_tools code.
178
179 26 Mar 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
180 Changed the print statements to logging in the partitioning BE code.
181 the logger may need to be imported to the x86archtemplate. unknown yet.

184
185 25 Mar 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
186 changed InstallProfile to remove is_uri check on kernel, stage, and portage
187 URIs. The blank uri check has been commented out.
188 ripped out error checking of set_services. this is done by _add_to_runlevel.
189
190 25 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>

196
197 23 Mar 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
198 small changes to setup_network_post. moved adding to runlevel of net.x to

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

263 Switched spawn() over to commands.getstatusoutput() instead of fork/waitpid
264
265 1 Mar 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
266 Fixed a bunch of true -> True typos. lots of em
267 only write new resolv.conf if there are dns servers listed.
268
269 1 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
270 Commented out 'display_on_tty8=True' in start_portmap()
271
272 18 Feb 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>

289
290 5 Feb 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
291 Changed the raising of 'warning' exceptions to a simple log of the error
292 so that the installer can continue.
293
294 3 Feb 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
295 Some big changes. First, changed most output to display_on_tty8.
296 Second, added log lines to all templates. Some smaller fixes such as typos.
297 Also did some cleanups of old commented lines.
298
299 1 Feb 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
300 Changed tty8 output to a fifo. Minor GLIStorageDevice fix thanks to BenUrban.
301 Undo change with fix. Escaping fix in GLIStorageDevice.py
302

322 21 Jan 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
323 partition() now waits until after it checks for partition flags before delete
324 the partitions :P
325
326 19 Jan 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
327 Updated TODO. swapon failure it temporarily not an error. swapon is an error
328 again. is_uri() check only performed on portage_tree_snapshot_uri if it isn't
329 blank.
330
331 19 Jan 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
332 Various fixes related to the add_users function. Still not yet finished.

338 InstallProfile. Added partition() call back in ArchTemplate. Fixed NFS
339 mounting code.
340
341 18 Jan 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>

357 resizing ntfs and ext2/3.
358
359 10 Jan 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
360 Fixed partition() in x86Template so that it scans through logicals and deletes
361 before deleting containing extended partition. Also clears partition table to
362 be safe before third pass.
363
364 08 Jan 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
365 Added mount_network_shares. not able to test it from this computer.
366 will test when i get back to school.
367 also added start_portmap to the client_controller as an always-do.
368 agaffney says this is needed for NFS mounts to work.
369
370 08 Jan 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
371 Partial rewrite of partitioning code in x86Template. No longer shells out to
372 parted to perform actions, now uses all pyparted calls. Code "works" in a
373 test, but still needs lots of TLC. Also modified tests/install.py to work
374 with x86Template and GLIClientConfiguration.
375
376 07 Jan 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>

383 Fixed a few more edit_configs. fixed a chroot multicommand bug thanks to agaffney.
384 Test Install ran very well (skipping partitioning).
385
386 05 Jan 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
387 My mid-day update. rewrote mount_local_partitions for order of mounting. fixed prepare_chroot
388 rewrote configure_fstab and install_bootloader for new partition format. fixed a few _edit_configs.
389 some may still have eluded me.
390
391 05 Jan 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
392 Overhauled the entire ArchTemplate and did a lot of other misc fixes in order to test it.
393 Just finished mount_local_partitions in GLIArchitectureTemplate
394
395 05 Jan 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
396 Added get_num_sectors() to GLIStorageDevice.
397
398 04 Jan 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
399 GLIStorageDevice now tracks partition boundaries in sectors instead of cylinders.
400 Also now ignores <=100 sectors for free space. Removed remaining depends stuff
401 from GLIInstallProfile.
402
403 20 Dec 2004; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
404 GLIStorageDevice returns "unknown" instead of "" for get_type()
405
406 19 Dec 2004; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
407 Added get_extended_partition() to GLIStorageDevice. Rewrote get_logicals() to
408 actually work. Commented out resizability checking code for speed.
409
410 17 Dec 2004; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
411 Switched to using dumpe2fs to determine free space left in ext2/3 filesystem in
412 GLIStorageDevice at the suggestion of plors
413
414 10 Dec 2004; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
415 Added a function to GLIUtility to pull a value from a make.conf-style config
416 file. Minor type fix to GLIInstallProfile.py
417
418 09 Dec 2004; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
419 Added code in GLIArchitectureTemplate.py to write netmounts into fstab. Separated
420 network mounts from partition data structure in GLIInstallProfile
421
422 27 Nov 2004; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
423 Changed the way GLIStorageDevice.py determines the amount a ext2/3 filesystem

433
434 27 Mar 2004; Nathaniel McCallum <npmccallum@gentoo.org>
435 Added InstallProfileTODO.txt. Added GLIClientConfiguration.py (contains run-time
436 for the program). Added __init__(install_profile, client_configuration) to
437 GLI.InstallProfile. This sets install_profile and client_configuration once so as
438 to avoid constantly passing stuff every time we call a method.

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

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

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

465 9 Feb 2004; Eric Sammer <esammer@gentoo.org>
466
467 Added initial changelog. Setting up the basic structure of the CVS repository
468 for the project. Added the UML class diagram in docs. Added a skeletal GLI
469 python module. Added misc files such news, authors, etc.
