6
7 13 Jun 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
8 Fix typos: get_extended() instead of get_extended_partition(). Added
9 list_mirrors() and list_stage_tarballs_from_mirror() functions to GLIUtility.
10 Change _emerge("sync") call to direct call to spawn to avoid 'emerge -k sync'
11
12 12 Jun 2005; John N. Laliberte <allanonjl@gentoo.org>
13 GLIInstallProfile.py: add missing set for dhcp_options if a tuple is passed
14 in add_network_interface.
15
16 12 Jun 2005; Robin H. Johnson <robbat2@gentoo.org> src/GLIArchitectureTemplate.py:
17 ensure PORTAGE_TMPDIR/PORT_LOGDIR/PORTDIR_OVERLAY/PKGDIR exist prior to any
18 usage - this caused a failure for stage1/stage2 previously. swapoff for swap
19 space at end of install. Mount /dev, /dev/shm, /dev/pts and /sys during
20 prepare_chroot.
21
22 11 Jun 2005; Robin H. Johnson <robbat2@gentoo.org> +src/cli/clife.py,
23 +src/cli/README, +src/fe/installer-cli, +src/fe/installer-dialog,
24 +src/fe/installer-gtk:
25 Add new automated CLI frontend. Add scripts that are the intended means to
26 use each frontend.
27
28 11 Jun 2005; Robin H. Johnson <robbat2@gentoo.org>
29 src/GLIClientController.py:
30 Add null type to network config, for cases where the interface is already up
31 and should not be touched (netboot for example).
32
33 11 Jun 2005; Robin H. Johnson <robbat2@gentoo.org>
34 src/GLIArchitectureTemplate.py:
35 pcmcia is not a variable name for a call to _add_to_runlevel, it should be a
36 string!. Try to use binary packages if available by default.
37
38 11 Jun 2005; Robin H. Johnson <robbat2@gentoo.org>
39 src/GLIArchitectureTemplate.py:
40 More error checking for _add_to_runlevel, to ensure that the init script
41 actually exists before we try to add it. set_services phase must take place
42 after the package installation, otherwise the init scripts might not exist.
43 Find the correct init script for the cron and logging daemons, and add that
44 instead of the package atom.
45
46 11 Jun 2005; Robin H. Johnson <robbat2@gentoo.org>
47 src/GLIArchitectureTemplate.py:
48 Fix up _edit_config so that it works if the file doesn't already exist. Fix
49 usage of 'file' to 'contents' for the variable name, as it shadows
50 __builtin__.file.
51
52 11 Jun 2005; Robin H. Johnson <robbat2@gentoo.org>
53 src/GLIArchitectureTemplate.py:
54 Add MTA install code, and include MTA install phase. Ensure
55 PORT_LOGDIR/PORTDIR_OVERLAY are created in _emerge if needed. Add support
56 for 'none' kernel config for build_kernel phase. Put kernel_script in
57 /var/tmp instead of /root for build_kernel phase.
58
59 11 Jun 2005; Robin H. Johnson <robbat2@gentoo.org> src/GLIInstallProfile.py:
60 Rename mta variables to match syslog/cron variables.
61
62 11 Jun 2005; Robin H. Johnson <robbat2@gentoo.org>
63 src/GLIArchitectureTemplate.py, src/templates/x86ArchitectureTemplate.py,
64 src/.cvsignore, src/fe/dialog/.cvsignore, src/fe/gtk/.cvsignore,
65 src/fe/net/client/.cvsignore, src/fe/net/server/.cvsignore,
66 src/templates/.cvsignore, src/tests/.cvsignore:
67 Refactor partition formatting again to include error checking. Allow 'none'
68 for kernel and bootloader specifications. Add .cvsignore files for .py[co].
69
70 11 Jun 2005; Robin H. Johnson <robbat2@gentoo.org>
71 src/GLIArchitectureTemplate.py, src/templates/x86ArchitectureTemplate.py:

77
78 11 Jun 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>

89
90 9 Jun 2005; Robin H. Johnson <robbat2@gentoo.org> src/GLIInstallProfile.py,
91 src/GLIStorageDevice.py, fe/dialog/dialogfe.py:

322 26 Mar 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
323 Changed the print statements to logging in the partitioning BE code.
324 the logger may need to be imported to the x86archtemplate. unknown yet.

327
328 25 Mar 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
329 changed InstallProfile to remove is_uri check on kernel, stage, and portage
330 URIs. The blank uri check has been commented out.
331 ripped out error checking of set_services. this is done by _add_to_runlevel.
332
333 25 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
334 set_stage_tarball_uri() doesn't raise an exception on a blank string.
335

339
340 23 Mar 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
341 small changes to setup_network_post. moved adding to runlevel of net.x to
342 after the device gets symlinked. added domainname runlevel command.
343
344 23 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
345 minor fix (hopefully) to livecd-kernel code. Removed call to mkvardb in
346 livecd-kernel code as it's now done by catalyst. Switch _emerge() call to
347 spawn() call in livecd-kernel code to pass environment variables.
348 livecd-kernel code pulls PKGDIR and PORTAGE_TMPDIR from make.conf info in
349 the install profile if available.
350
351 23 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
352 Added code to build_kernel() and emerge_kernel_sources() in ArchTemplate
353 to handle installing the livecd kernel into the new system.
354
355 22 Mar 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
356 should emerge hotplug and coldplug before adding them to runlevel.
357
358 21 Mar 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
359 took chroot out of grub_install command.
360
361 21 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
362 Changed chroot wrapper code in spawn() to write the wrapper the python way
363 instead of the bash way to avoid quote conflicts. Added
364 'logfile=self._compile_logfile' to a number of spawn() calls. Added new
365 hash_password() function to GLIUtility. Remove command to 'rm /tmp/spawn.sh'
366 as it breaks the piping.
367
368 20 Mar 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
369 Added the amd64ArchitectureTemplate, mostly a copy of x86 without lilo.
370
371 20 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
372 Added _get_packages_to_emerge() to GLIArchitectureTemplate and calls in
373 stage1() and stage2(). Added 'origminor' parameter to GLIStorageDevice and
374 GLIInstallProfile.
375
376 19 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
377 Fixed a couple bugs in add_netmount() in GLIInstallProfile. spawn() outputs
378 to the actual tty8 with display_on_tty8 flag. Compile output logfile moved
379 into /mnt/gentoo in prepare_chroot()
380
381 18 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
382 Add sigunmask.c contributed by d_m (on freenode) to counteract python's
383 retarted behavior regarding threads and signals. Add code to convert MB/%/*
384 to start/end sectors
385
386 17 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
387 Add 2>&1 to cmd in spawn()
388
389 16 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
390 Modified GLIUtility.exitsuccess() to work with return value from
391 commands.getstatusoutput instead of os.waitpid(). spawn() automatically
392 creates wrapper script for commands run inside chroot so multiple commands
393 and redirection can be used. Change exitsuccess() back. Added 'chmod a+x'
394 for the generated script from spawn()
395
396 16 Mar 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
397 Removed default values for stage tarball URI and portage tree URI from
398 InstallProfile. These should be set by the FEs. also added services step to
399 ArchTemplate and coldplug/hotplug runlevels to the genkernel step.
400 Possibly fixed CC DHCP bug with -n. (thx agaffney)
401
402 14 Mar 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>

407
408 1 Mar 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
409 Fixed a bunch of true -> True typos. lots of em
410 only write new resolv.conf if there are dns servers listed.
411
412 1 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
413 Commented out 'display_on_tty8=True' in start_portmap()
414
415 18 Feb 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
416 added progress bar to dialogfe and fix logger bug in ArchTemplate.

421
422 10 Feb 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
423 updates to TODO list.
424
425 6 Feb 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
426 Initial code for quickpkg GRP support. Fix loop to grab packages from
427 'emerge -p blah'
428
429 6 Feb 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
430 check for dhcp in the network stuff and emerge it if it is.
431 added quickpkg to TODO list
432
433 5 Feb 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
434 Changed the raising of 'warning' exceptions to a simple log of the error
435 so that the installer can continue.
436
437 3 Feb 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
438 Some big changes. First, changed most output to display_on_tty8.
439 Second, added log lines to all templates. Some smaller fixes such as typos.
440 Also did some cleanups of old commented lines.
441
442 1 Feb 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
443 Changed tty8 output to a fifo. Minor GLIStorageDevice fix thanks to BenUrban.
444 Undo change with fix. Escaping fix in GLIStorageDevice.py
445
446 31 Jan 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
447 more updates to TODO list. hopefully we'll soon start removing items instead
448 of adding them.
449
450 29 Jan 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
451 Changed the way GLIStorageDevice.get_max_sectors_for_resize() works
452
453 27 Jan 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
454 updated TODO list. (again)
455
456 25 Jan 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
457 changed output of portmap start to display_on_tty8.
458 fixed bootloader for udev and multiple kernels
459 fixed custom kernel config (again)
460
461 22 Jan 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
462 changed default value of CC._enable_ssh to True because this is smart.
463 added code to allow custom kernel .config. may be unstable and break. sorry.
464
465 21 Jan 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
466 partition() now waits until after it checks for partition flags before delete
467 the partitions :P
468
469 19 Jan 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
470 Updated TODO. swapon failure it temporarily not an error. swapon is an error
471 again. is_uri() check only performed on portage_tree_snapshot_uri if it isn't
472 blank.
473
474 19 Jan 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
475 Various fixes related to the add_users function. Still not yet finished.
476 Added things to the TODO list. Lets start using that!
477
478 18 Jan 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
479 Added code to x86Template to format newly created partitions. Also added
480 some error checking code. GLIStorageDevice passes 'minor' with data to
481 InstallProfile. Added partition() call back in ArchTemplate. Fixed NFS
482 mounting code.
483
484 18 Jan 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
485 Took out unnecessary setting of random livecd root password. the cd already
486 sets it randomly.
487
488 15 Jan 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
489 Took out an unneeded step from CC's run()
490
491 15 Jan 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
492 Attempt at detecting and adding windows partitions to lilo.
493
494 14 Jan 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
495 Added lilo code and cleaned up lilo code. also do_partitioning renamed to
496 partition. fixed misc exit_status => exitstatus typo.
497
498 11 Jan 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
499 Added basic code for resizing filesystems with pyparted. Fixed code for
500 resizing ntfs and ext2/3.
501
502 10 Jan 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
503 Fixed partition() in x86Template so that it scans through logicals and deletes
504 before deleting containing extended partition. Also clears partition table to
505 be safe before third pass.
506
507 08 Jan 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
508 Added mount_network_shares. not able to test it from this computer.
509 will test when i get back to school.
510 also added start_portmap to the client_controller as an always-do.
511 agaffney says this is needed for NFS mounts to work.
512
513 08 Jan 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
514 Partial rewrite of partitioning code in x86Template. No longer shells out to
515 parted to perform actions, now uses all pyparted calls. Code "works" in a
516 test, but still needs lots of TLC. Also modified tests/install.py to work
517 with x86Template and GLIClientConfiguration.
518
519 07 Jan 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
520 Initial move of partitioning code from ArchTemplate to x86Template.
521
522 07 Jan 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
523 Added grp_install and services to InstallProfile. forgot about the set_root_password
524
525 07 Jan 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
526 Fixed a few more edit_configs. fixed a chroot multicommand bug thanks to agaffney.
527 Test Install ran very well (skipping partitioning).
528
529 05 Jan 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
530 My mid-day update. rewrote mount_local_partitions for order of mounting. fixed prepare_chroot
531 rewrote configure_fstab and install_bootloader for new partition format. fixed a few _edit_configs.
532 some may still have eluded me.
533
534 05 Jan 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
535 Overhauled the entire ArchTemplate and did a lot of other misc fixes in order to test it.
536 Just finished mount_local_partitions in GLIArchitectureTemplate
537
538 05 Jan 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
539 Added get_num_sectors() to GLIStorageDevice.
540
541 04 Jan 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
542 GLIStorageDevice now tracks partition boundaries in sectors instead of cylinders.
543 Also now ignores <=100 sectors for free space. Removed remaining depends stuff
544 from GLIInstallProfile.
545
546 20 Dec 2004; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
547 GLIStorageDevice returns "unknown" instead of "" for get_type()
548
549 19 Dec 2004; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
550 Added get_extended_partition() to GLIStorageDevice. Rewrote get_logicals() to
551 actually work. Commented out resizability checking code for speed.
552
553 17 Dec 2004; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
554 Switched to using dumpe2fs to determine free space left in ext2/3 filesystem in
555 GLIStorageDevice at the suggestion of plors
556
557 10 Dec 2004; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
558 Added a function to GLIUtility to pull a value from a make.conf-style config
559 file. Minor type fix to GLIInstallProfile.py
560
561 09 Dec 2004; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
562 Added code in GLIArchitectureTemplate.py to write netmounts into fstab. Separated
563 network mounts from partition data structure in GLIInstallProfile
564
565 27 Nov 2004; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
566 Changed the way GLIStorageDevice.py determines the amount a ext2/3 filesystem
567 can be resized.
568
569 27 Oct 2004; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
570 Added some of the final functions to GLIInstallTemplate.
571 Yes this project is still active despite rare use of the Changelog!
572
573 11 Jun 2004; Nathaniel McCallum <npmccallum@gentoo.org>
574 Added the GLIPartitionTools.py file. This is a temporary insertion of
575 partitioning tools that will eventually go into their own package.
576
577 27 Mar 2004; Nathaniel McCallum <npmccallum@gentoo.org>
578 Added InstallProfileTODO.txt. Added GLIClientConfiguration.py (contains run-time
579 for the program). Added __init__(install_profile, client_configuration) to
580 GLI.InstallProfile. This sets install_profile and client_configuration once so as
581 to avoid constantly passing stuff every time we call a method.
582
583 26 Mar 2004; Nathaniel McCallum <npmccallum@gentoo.org>
584
585 Added another private method to GLI.InstallTemplate. _edit_config() modifies config
586 files without messing up all the other stuff in them. This will be used for making
587 changes to make.conf, rc.conf, /etc/conf.d/net, etc...
588
589 25 Mar 2004; Nathaniel McCallum <npmccallum@gentoo.org>
590
591 Added GLI.InstallTemplate framework. This is not yet functional. However, it does
592 have a few basic things. I added two private methods. One is _depends(). This
593 will be used for dependency checking (ie. unpacking a tarball requires that
594 partitioning has been done). The other is _exec_in_chroot(). This is the exact
595 same syntax as os.system(), however, instead of being run in the liveCD
596 environment, it runs in the chroot. This requires a bit of fork() magic, so I
597 isolated the code. Hope to work more this week to get this class formed...
598
599 14 Feb 2004; Eric Sammer <esammer@gentoo.org>
600
601 Added SAX parsing. Made GLI.InstallProfile a subclass of xml.sax.ContentHandler for
602 obvious reasons. Switched kernel_modules and users to be lists instead of tuples
603 to allow for easier modification (mutable, rather than immutable objects). Updated
604 existing pydoc and added more. Implemented body of GLI.InstallProfile.parse().
605 Cleaned file format of GLI.py a bit. Fixed all accessors to use self references.
606 Added initial unit test code.
607
608 9 Feb 2004; Eric Sammer <esammer@gentoo.org>
609
610 Added initial changelog. Setting up the basic structure of the CVS repository
611 for the project. Added the UML class diagram in docs. Added a skeletal GLI
612 python module. Added misc files such news, authors, etc.
